ABOUT THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 2 April 1914
ABOUT THE HORSE. The Arabian National stud book, Vol. 1, has been published in Amer ica, and Sir Walter Gilibey has writ ten the preface, in which he states that up to the present time more than 4000 distinct works, in various lan guages, have been devoted to the horse, and among these are nearly ninety in Arabic and Persian, which are specially devoted to the Arab breed. The history of the horse shows that there have been two distinct types in Britain since the time of Julius Caesar. This breed of horse was the anxious cafe of Parliament from a date prior to the time of King John; and it is noted that the weight a riding horse of this type had to bear, with its mail-clad rider and the plate armor .with which it was protected, might be upwards of 4cwt^ or 32 stone.

r CARE OF YOUNG TREES; j , The .care of. the young trees at this season of the year is one of the meet Important of orchard operations. Many trees have ibeen planter! out dur ing ttie past season. Whatever care iand attention, are given to the young trees will. be amply repaid to the grower In after years, owing to the ivigor, sturdiness, and. other qualities thus Imparted to them. It Id a mis take to plant a young orchard, and, after cutting hack the trees, to leave jthem practically to their own devices, other than following the usual meth ods of soil cultivation. . ; The trees, after the early summer .cultivation and cleaning of the soil, - .should be mulched with straw, grass, or leafage of some description.

The Retort Courteous. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 2 April 1914
The Retort Courteous. One day a learned professor was accosted by a very dirty little boot black: "Shine your shoes, sir?" The professor was impressed by the filthiness of the iboy's face. "I don't want a shine, my lad," said he, "but if you'll go and wash your face I'll give you a sixpence." "A'richt, sit" was the lad's reply, as he went over to a neighboring fountain and made his ablutions. Re turning, he held out his hand for the money. "Well, my lad," said the professor, "you have earned your sixpence. Here it is." ' "I dinna want it, auld chap," return ed the boy, with a lordly air. "Ye keep it and get yer hair cut."
THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 2 April 1914
THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. I As an intance of the numbers of I I bacteria the common fly can carry, the following figures , given by Pro fessor Easton may be cited: — He caught 100 flies in. a kitchen, put them in a pint of sterilised water and rinsed them about, and then examined the water, and found that he had rais-i ed such a number of bacteria off that each fly averaged over 300,000. He next caught a similar number in the cow barn, and they averaged ovrr 800,000 each, another 100 in the pig pen, and they averaged over 1,000,000 each. It may be said that when one goes into a factory or house and finds many flies, one is immediately justi fied in condemning the sanitary sur I rcundings of such premises. One can appreciate the fact that in factories where flies abound it is next to im- j possible to keep them out of the | milk, and the seeding of the milk j by the. bacteria which they carry must be very appreciable. The evil deeds of the fly need emphasising, as too many of us seem to ...
CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 2 April 1914
CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. The value of the cabbage as a feed I for dairy cows is fairly generally I known; It is a succulent feed, is highly relished by cows, is an ex-1 ceilent milk producer, and is rich in protein. But -whilst its value is roa lised, many dairy farmers have a rooted obection to it on account of its liability to impart an undesirable flavor to milk and butter. This ques tion is dealt with by a writer in a recent issue of "Hoard's Dairyman." After observing that the only objec tion to feeding cabbage to milch cows is the flavor imparted to the milk, he proceeds to point out that, when fed under certain conditions, this objectionable feature can be avoided. One of the first precautions to observe is to • keep the cabbage away from the shed at milking time. Milk absorbs odors very quickly indeed, and if the cabbage odors are near the milk it will be tainted. An other precaution to observe is not to feed the cows Just before milking; any high-flavored feed, in fact—tur n...
MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 2 April 1914
MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. The experience already gained in places where associations have been organised shows that with the weed ing out of the unprofitable cows comes an interest in better cows and in the greater care of the cows. There is a tendency to make greater discrimination in price between good and poor animals. The introduction of better cows per medium of the testing procer/i creates a desire for more of them. Thus a larger number of cows with high yielding capacity reduces the cost of collecting milk and cream Hi a given territory. The increased interest in Jairying stimulates an interest in pure-bred stock. Instances are given whero dur ing the first year's existence of a dairy-testing association only one man owned a pure-bred dairy bull; twenty two such bulls were found anions the herds the following year. While no pure-bred cows at all w»Me owned the first, year, twenty-one were bought during the second year. . This ii terest steadily increased, and during the thi...

HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 2 April 1914
HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. The man, or woman, who wants to be as good-looking as nature will per mit is given a few practical hints in the "Family Doctor":— Don't eat yqur meals quickly; this causes indigestion and a red nose. Don't worry; other people's troubles are quite as bad as yours. Don't forget that a penny spent on fruit does more good than a shilling on buns or sweets. Don't walk five miles one day and stay at home all the next. Don't read till midnight; one hour's sleep before twelve is worth five afterwards. Don't shut your^bedroom window; fresh air is necessary for health. Don't expect physics and tonics to keep you well if you neglect the laws of health and hygiene.
