WALLOWING TANK. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
WALLOWING TANK. The pleasure that a pig gets out of wallowing in shallow water is taken advantage of by some breeders to keep them free from vermin. A tank is made of conveni ut size. It is ad visable to have it under cover-a shel ter roof of iron, enough to keep the sun off it, will do. The tank is par tially filled with water, and the sur face of the water is covcred with kero sene oil. When the pigs wallow in this they get sufficient oil on them to destroy vermin. When necessary, the oil and water are replenished, and the tank, of course, requires occasion al cleaning. To prevent the forma tion of mud-holes, 'the ground sur rounding the tank should be surfaced with concrete.

WAYSIDE WINNOWINGS. [BY A BOHEMIAN] The manner in which patriotism is iustilled into the minds of children on Empire Day ia worthy of approbation. The day's proceedinga are BO arranged that it can scarcely be thought that the lasting impressions made oo those red-letter intervals will be easily effaced. As a virile people we are naturally endowed with a iove of country, and the glorious traditions afffcting the preservation of the gre&tneBB of the Empire to ffhich wr belong". And it muBt be borne in mind that love and pride in one's country beget patriotism to the Em pire, The occasion, moreover, serves a double purpose,.in that it perpatuntrn the memory of Victoria tho Good, that Great White Queen who exercised such poteDt weal in banding the Empire together in the bonds of common brotherhood and common interest, and in firmly establishing a true Imperial spirit of unity and concord. Though our part in the celebration was on a small scale, it was none the less sinr.ere and ...
BOXING CHILDREN'S EARS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
BOXING CHILDREN'S EARS. A physiological journal some time ago condemned the practice of boxing children's ears. The passage of the ear is closed by a thin membrane, specially adapted to bo influenced by every impulse of the air, and with nothing but the air to support it in ternally. If anyone designed to break nr overstretch the membrane, he could scarcely devise a more effective means than to bring the hand sudden ly and forcibly down upon the pass age of the ear, thus driving the air violently before it, with no possibility for its escape but by the membrane giving way. ?.Ianv children are made deaf by this practice.

GROWING MANGOLDS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
GROWING MANGOLDS. Iii choosing the situation for man golds a sunny aspect should be se lected, as they love the warnrtii, and well-rooted will withstand heat as well as drought much better than tur nips. Mangolds are not subject to 'blight like the turnip, and on this ac count are invaluable as a stand-by in case of a failure in the turnip crop. When manuring for mangolds, the far mer could greatly improve the yield of his crop by adding a little nitrate of soda, which can be applied with or at the time of seeding or as a top dressing. The course to be taken, however, must be determined accbrd ing»to conditions, the chief of which being the nature of the land. For in stance, if the land is of an open, por ous nature, the method of applying it as a top-dressing at comparatively short intervals is probably most econ omical, as there is little danger of the nitrate being washed through into the subsoil before the plants have a chance to make use of it. .But on land of a retentive natur...

LIME FOR THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
LIME FOR THE SOIL. The nature of the lime used de pends upon the purpose for which it is required. Lime is applied' to the soil for the following objects: - (a) To lighten heavy clays; (b) to sweet en sour soils; (c) to supply plant Lood. In the first case, either unslackod lime (powdered quicklime), or quite freshly slacked lime is the most ef fective, the action 011 the clay being both of a mechanical and chemical nature, breaking up the colloidal clay particles when tlie lime is slacked in contact with the clay. Slacked lime is much less effective, as the action is only a mechanical one, as there is no combination of the lime with the silicates of the clay.
VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." Large crops are not always profit able crops, and the finest looking ani mal does not always give the largest net' return. For generations we have been taught and urged to grow bigger crops, unmindful of the relation of in creased cost to increased production. The value of increased production al ways depends upon whether or not It is economically secured, i.e., upon whether the margin of profit an acre is increased or not. Another important factor always to be kept in mind is the relation which any part of the farm enterprise bears to the whole. A crop judged by it self might be profitable and yet the system might be unprofitable. For example, timothy hay might prove a good crop in any one year, or even two or three years, but eventually the yield must decline, because a system of farming with this crop alone would not be likely to maintain fer tility, so that the system could not be called profitable. On the other hand, clover might not prove to be a mon...
TO PREVENT HAIR-BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
TO PREVENT HAIR-BALL. Hundreds of calves die every year from one-cause or another, and very otteu the; farmer is at a loss to knovi the - cause of death. Practical experi ence counts all the time. Mr. J. A. Bird, of Duraubox, Tweed River, N.SiW., is a dairy farmer who, when a calf dies,, wants to know-the reason why. He had some calves die. He opened the stomach of one and found a hard mass of hair like a piece of felt and about the size of a tennis ball, which had collected through the calves sucking the ears of each oth er at feeding time, which is a com mon practice among young calves. Mr. Bird tried many means ol prevention, and finds that a small quantity of fresh cow manure mixed with separ ated milk, and allowed to stand in the sun all day before being rubbed on the ears and bellies of the calves at feeding time completely breaks the bad habit.
GOOD MANNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914
GOOD MANNERS. Have you ever heard any one 6ay, "Oh, it I were rich I'd have things nice then"? Did you ever notice whe ther she had things as nice without being rich as she could? Just as the rich and poor use the same standard of spelling, as free to one as to the other, so they can both use the same standard of good breeding if they choose. Good manners cost attention, and that is all. The same man or wo man who would feel disgraced to write i for I, or to spell poorly, thinks it is no matter if he eats with his knife, keeps his liat on in the house, or is re miss in the many little things that custom has decided ought to be done. There is the same reason for being remiss in spelling as in politeness. Politeness is like an ajr-cushion though there may be notHing in it, it eases the jolt of this world wonder fully." That one is poor is no ex cuse for rough ways; neither does it excuse a slack table service. It is the little things that make living delight ful. Mrs. Whitney is not f...
