BREEDING TO A DEFINITE PURPOSE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 4 April 1914

BREEDING TO A DEFINITE PURPOSE, Has it not occurred to you' nhy all the progressive peoplo of the world draw on the Netherlands, Guarnsey, Jersey, and Ayrshire for cows? Why breederq from various parts of the world go to France and Belgilum for draught horses, to England for draught and runninug horses, beef cattle and mutton sheep, and to Scotland for her polled beef-cattle? I)id it ever occur to you that wheorover any locality be comes noted for the production of any kind of live stock, all the people in that locality are making a speciality of breeding in some definite line and for a definite purpose? Does it not follow that if we can hope to mako a reputation and become distinguished for breeding something of great merit and to draw the patronage of enlight ened and progressive people, we too must spelcialise, have some definite aim in view, and combine all the in. telligonce and energies of all in a community, county, or state to the one purosel'oo?

An Old Prescription. A Scottish lad was on one occasion accused of stealing some nrticles from a doctor's house. 'rho judge was much struck with hi1 personal ap pearance, and asked him why he was guilty of such a contemptible act. "Weel, yo see," replied the prisoner, "I had a bit of a pain in ma sido, and my mither tauldl me tao gang tao the doctor's and tak' something." "Oh, yes," said the judge, "but surely she didn't toll you to go andl take an eghtlit-day clock." The prisoner was evidently non* plussed, but it was only for a moment, Turning to. the judge, a bright smile of humot stealing over his counton* ance, he replled quietly: "There's an old provorb that says "l'Time and theo doctor cure a' diseases,' an' sno I thoeht-" But the remainder of the reply wan lost. in the unrestrained laughter of the tourt. ................. ......

CAIRYING. WET AND DRY MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 4 April 1914

.-4~---;----;--= DAIRYING. WET AND DRY MILKING, The question of whether cowl should be millied with wet or dry sands gives rise to a great deal of dis. cussion at times, and anything that can be said respecting it is always read with interest, Maniy persons who have not a practical acquaintance with the art of milking dogmatically assert that the hands should not even be moistened while the cow is being milked, It is, therefore, somewhat ri. freshing to find that an authority on dairying practices (Mr. . S, Thomn. son, Queensland Government export) is a supporter of the ordinary practice of milking, of course insisting at the same time on due regard being paid to cleanliness. "Dry nmilking," says Mr. Thomson, in 'Thue Dalirying Industry" (a book which hie has just published), "is a strong point with somine teachers of dairying, but it is open to objoe tions, It does not seem to be clear, however, what is meant by the term dry milking, Assuming that it im plies that the hands must he...
