Quite Enough. ; ""Mr. lrvin S. Cobb, the American \ writer of short stories, returning from ' a trip in tiie Western States, found ; that a close friend of his had fallen I into the hands of the law. He hurried ; down to the friend's lawyers, i "Why, Jack is the dearest, kindest, ! most honest man in the world!" he : said. "You must call me as a wit i ness to his character." "Not- while I'm his lawyer." was the : rm>ly. "I know just what would hap ■ pen. The other man's lawyer would ; ask your occupation. And you would say, 'I'm a writer of fiction.' And the ! lawyer would pet up and stand over ' you and look into the dark recesses | of your heart for a time. And by : and by, despairing of finding one I sweet, aspiring thought in you, he ' would turn to the jury. And he would ' exchange an intelligent, libellous ; smile wth the twelve. And then he i would sit down, and, without even troubling to look in your direction, I he would say, 'That is quite enough, ; Mr. Cobb. Von may st...
WARTS ON TEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 2 May 1914
WARTS ON TEATS. Many people fail to got rid of warts because they think it can only be done with great difficulty, or by tearing the wart bodily away, but this is not the case. When cows are milked twice a day it does not seem to afford much opportunity to get rid of warts. To use any substance of a poisonous nature for the wart is dangerous in many ways. When the teats are chapped only, some kind of soothing ointment should be applied, and for this pur pose carbollsed vaseline, and other preparations may be procured from the chemist. This will heal the teat up in a short time, and allow the milk ing to be carried on without any dis comfiture to the cow. In the case of warts, when small they can generally be got rid of by touching them with caustic soda. An other simple remedy, and one which in many cases has been found to be successful; rub the wart with vinegar, then while it is still wet dust it with dry carbonate of soda. If this is done after each milking, the warts will gradua...
GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 2 May 1914
I GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING, i No branch of dairy fanning is more important than the feeding and tieat ment of cows; yet none is more gen erally neglected. The direct influence of what the cow eats and drinks upon the milk slie produces cannot be too strongly impressed upon the attention of the farmer. Of equal importance are the conditions under which food and drink are taken. If cows are chased by dogs or over-driven, or wor ried by boys 011 their way to pasture, their milk will surely show the effects in a deterioration of quality. If their | shelter in winter or shade in summer is insufficient, or the food is not suf ficiently nutritive, the penalty will in variably be paid in a smaller milk yield. These restrictions are inevi table. One of the greatest mistakes far mers make is in supposing that they may with impunity keep their cows on "short commons" during the win ter and that they will fatten up in the spring, and milk as well as ever. A cow reduced to moagreness by semi sta...
SCOURING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 2 May 1914
SCOURING CALVES. From experiments carried out in : Germany it is claimed to have been discovered that sour milk given to j calves from the first to the tilth day j of their lives, forms an excellent pre- ( ventive of scour. The constant losses ! —sometimes of valuable pedigree ' calves—are well known in most herds, : and are attributed to the curdling of i the milk in the stomach. The bacteria I in sour milk are supposed to act bene ficially. In Germany it is called yog- I hurt, produced by adding Bacillus bul- j garicus to milk. This generates lac- j tic acid in the stomach of the calves, j which acts ns a disinfectant, and pre- i vents the development of the hurt- j I'm bacteria, and at the same time sti- > mulates the activity of the intestine, i probably by producing a ferment that j destroys the bacilli which give rise j to scour. i
VETCHES OR TARES. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 2 May 1914
VETCHES OR TARES. Vetches or tares are of two distinct kinds—those sown in the autumn for spring or early summer use, and those sown in the spring which come in after the winter sowing is used up. There are few crops which yield such a large apiount of succulent green food, though perhaps for special pur poses other crops are preferable, but for general use and under all condi tions tares cannot be beaten. The amount of seed required per acre is about throe bushels of tares and one bushel of oats or rye, the latter bein^ sown to keep the tares off the ground somewhat and so prevent rotting in wet weather. In order to gain tlve full benefits from growing this green crop the sow ings should be made at different inter vals, beginning as early as possible, when the land can be prepared, so that successive cuttings are obtained without allowing them to become ripe. Tares are. more suitable for soiling purposes than grazing,as this latter plan is very wasteful, much of the food being tram...
THE BUSY BEE [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 2 May 1914
THE BUSY BEE Winter is close upon us. In the coolest of our districts bees have al ready retired, and before the niont'i is out the retirement will be general. During the warmer portions of the days, especially n' the sun is bright, the bees will still venture out, but they will not wander far from home ii last month's advice has been ut tended to, i.e., if they are supplied with sufficient honey to carry them 011 till spring, or the coming breeding season. If bees are forced to go for aging on bright winter days, the sud den atmospheric changes prevent the return of many, and a good supply of food in the hive is the only remedy. I' also forms one of the best, methods to keep up the warmth of the hive. On every occasion when the weather is bright and drying, remove the wraps, etc., from the hives, and spread them out to dry. External dampness produces internal dampness, which is one of the most prolific causes of di sease. Just before sundown return (he protections to the hives. The...
II [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 2 May 1914
II. The letter staggered Hugh, and his perplexity increased the more he thought upon it. Well done or ill-done, ho felt it hiB duty to let Leila know exactly what had happened, and to let her know immediate!}'. If stye charged him with a breach of trust, j he knew he would not defend him self with success, for had he not pledged his word to her, and would a woman believe him? Upon the oth er side was the wisdom of Geraldine. How shrewd she had been; how quick to do the right thing! He began to see that all his heroics in the prison were so much vain-glorious nonsense, and would never have stood the test of reason; It would have been mad ness"" to have carried away the lad upon the yacht, and opinion would have condemned both man and wife. Geraldine had solved the riddle. !!• had yet to learn what pri"e of Leila's affections lie must pay for her wit. Would Leila condemn him. He re membered her sweetness, her despair, t.he gentle sorrow she had made bo brave an effort to hide from him...
AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 2 May 1914
AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. Within the- past ton years the dairy j cows of Australia have increased from one million to above two millions. The ; butter produced in a single year reach ed about 200,000,000 lbs. The annual export is valued at between £3,000,000 and £4,000,000. No rural industry in Australia is more progressive and none pays larger returns to the farmers? The mainstay of dairying is the o.tport market, and easily the largest con sumers of Australian butter abroad are the people of the United Kingdom. It might be thought that the expense of carrying butter from Australia to London would be a serious handicap upon butter-making in the Common wealth. As a matter of fact, however, the Australian dairy fanner, in point of cost, is as close to Loudon as the dairy farmers of Ireland or Scotland. The actual contract price of shipping butter from either Melbourne or Syd- ! liey to London is Vl'd. per lb. 1
DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 2 May 1914
DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. i An English dairying authority says: . The elimination of the worthless ani mals should be one of the chief ob jects of the cow keeper. I Milk records kept carefully and sys | tc-matically furnish reliable informa j tion which enables a cow keeper to de j tect these worthless animals; and it pays him to dispose of them at once. I There are some farmers, of course, ] who may be tempted to rely wholly ! on. their own judgment as far as the milking capacities of any cow is con cerned; but guess-work of this kind can teach nothing what it costs to feed cows, nor whether such food is being economically fed in relation to the average quantity of milk produced. Milk producers need to study this question of cost of food in relation to milk yield very carefully indeed. The fact is clear that a cow giving, say, S00 gallons per annum costs practic ally no more to feed than one which only gives GOO gallons; yet, compara tively speaking, there is a loss of £6 j ...
WINTER CARE. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 2 May 1914
WINTER CARE. The season is at hand that is the hardest on our ever faithful friend the horsa. The raw, damp, windy or extreme cold weather, together with a little neglect, may cause the loss of a valu able horse. When a horse comes • in wet l'rom work or drive, rub him well and cover with a warm woollen blanket. Always change to a dry blanket when the horse has cooled. Rub the legs well with a wisp of straw or a towel. Every horse is more or less warm when he comes in from a drive. Never strip off the harness or saddle and let the horse rush Into a feed of oats or a trough of water. Never give water or oats to a horse until he has been in the stable some time, and has had some hay. This is a sane and safe practice and much loss can be avoided by en forcing it. Change the bit of the horse with the sensitive mouth. Take off the check, or let it out. Try a large rub ber-covered bit. If the horse "drives on one line," look to his teeth at once; a sharp tooth is usually the cause.

BLOWING HIS OWN TRUMPET. When you hear a follow boasting Of the brave deeds he has done, Don't disturb him, let him tell you All his smart things one by one; But remind him when he's finished - Yes, his pardon liumbly beg That the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. No doubt you have met people— There are lots of them, you know Who to promise aye are ready. At performing very slow.

CHAPTER XIII. The Price of Silence. I [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 2 May 1914
CHAPTER XIII-. The Price of Silence. I Hugh returned to the Carlton Ho tel at a quarter to five. He was a little surprised not to find Geraldine there; but he imagined that she might have taken Desdy to the Hippodrome or to Maskelyne's—she who had such little taste for all theatrical shows herself. Had she done so, it would have been ii new victor}' for this ama zing child, who seemed able to bring anybody to his feet, and had already conquered naif the staff at the Carlton —while he was an eternal source of wonder to the matchless Joseph. Hugh was well aware of Geraldine's real affection for him, but he began to think that never would he have her favor for Leila, but for the untoward circumstances of these later days. There are some women who can live u whole lifetime upon a volcano of profound emotions, and yet never let the world see so much as a wraith of smoke above the inscrutable mount. Geraldine was just such a woman. There were circumstances whereun der she would have given...
