JAMS AND PRESERVES. I It'l l, are a few hints on jinn-making ami preserving. The inexperienced young matron just setting up house keeping may Ijo glad ol tliom. On the other hand, thoro may bo some thing now for tho housowifo of an older date. Krom time to tim-o I roeeivo letters from my readers asking for Komo hints regarding jam-making, or wails irom others who havo set m a large fitoro of preserves, which aro not keeping as well as they might. Now, tliero aro several reasons why jam is not a suc cess. In the lirst> placo, perhaps un sound fruit has been Used. It was oneo considered that "anything was good enough for jam," with the resin iliat odds and ends of half-bud peaches etc., somo half-ripo, others wholly ripe, found their way into tho preserv ing pan, and it was little wonder thai the result, was harly satisfactory, i lien inferior sugar \yns ua":d, the jam was hardly boiled long enough, and Jnsi but by no means least, the storing place was not at all satisfactory. i ha...

CROSSBREEDING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 12 May 1914

CROSS-BREEDING HORSES. L'he Ncw.Jsouth Wales block Depart ment makes in its last annual report a vigorous iittnck on tho system .so pre valent of cross-breeding hordes. It points out that breeders who do that, arc not content to confine their work to tho animals thoy keep about their own farms, but they send representa tives of theso crosses to the saleyuids aud tho shows as studs. The result is a collection of ugly brutes, with few good points and no merits worth both oring about.

ENSILAGE MAKING THE BEST WEED-KILLER. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 12 May 1914

ENSILAGE MAKING THE BEST WEED-KILLER. X)f all Hie vegetation pe:>ls that arc antagonistic to profitable gram grow ing, ib is almost invariably agreed that wiki oats is the very worst. "Almost" is used advisedly, as there are yet those who favour the letting of the wild oats grow during the grass rota tion period as ireelyas they will lor tho feeding of tho slock. This, weedy slulf, of course, is turned under after seeding at fallowing time, but this, even admitting that wild fiats furnishes good leed, is pronounced by thoNno.st experienced man as a fallacy. To endeavour to kill wild oats by plough* ing them iukUt, once they have at tained tho seeding stage, lias been proved to he not only iutilo, but ono of tho greatest evils wherever prao tised. Wild oats, it is found, can only bo killed by ploughing them un der in the green stage, immediately af ter sprouting, or harvesting thein bo fore seeding.

FORAGE CROPS. The plants that may be safely relied on as forage in all parts of the colony aro winter l*yo for late autumn and early spring pasture, anil a mixture of winter wheat, oats, and barley Jor summer use. An easy way to provide u l.boral supply of winter forage for u.l kinds of live stock is to sou* winter ryu in a crop of barloy. The ground should be ploughed to a depth of at least iivo niohcs. It .should be har rowed at l.:ast three times or harrow ed once and then rolled. The barloy should 1)0 sown to a depth of aboui lwo and one-half inches. When the young crop has attained a height o! about threo inches it should bo harrow ed len«\hwisi^ and winter ryo .should then be drilled crosswi.se amongst it at a depth of about on;; inch. 11 the s^il has been well packed as suggested above, the depth of the various drill ings can be easily regulated, and the crop he benefited by the extra cultiva tion given to the ground by harrowing and cross-drilling.

PIG-KILLING ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 12 May 1914

PIG-KILLING ON THE FARM. It is remarkable, "Pitt Ilrccdor" i writes, lion: few farmers kill and dresn ; the pigs they fatten. Fat pigs arc j taken alive to the saleyards, whoro two I or three buyers present have already | arranged prices and their respective ; . proportions to the yarding. Some are j chary of trying to slaughter for mar- i Jstft, not being sure1 of tho details, such as tho temperature. Yet with a ther mometer it is an easy thing to turn out a well dressed pig. Tno writer has forwarded numbers of porkers to town, and has had them purchase*! in tho auotion rooms by some of tho lead ing city butchers. the simplest manner of dishbliujx a pig lor sticking is to uso a pea rille. Shoot the pig iu the centre of tho lorehead. When fairly hit tho pig drops and may he haudled easily. It Is necessary to bo quick in turning it 011 its back and sticking it.

CLIP THE UDDER. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 12 May 1914

CLIP THE UDDER. It is not uncommon among dairy cows tu iind tho udder covered with a growth of long air, which, al though it may bo oi' so/no protection to the udder, nevertheless, from tho standpoint ul sanitation and comfort to tho cow during milking" is a detri ment . Under ordinary' farm condi tion.-, tho hair is generally covered with tilth, and oven m tho best kept dair ies, unless clipped, will collect some dust and JilUi. Furthermore, because of tho location, it is highly probable that hoiue hairs will find Uioir way into tho milk pail during milking. lu order that such conditions may not occur, these hairs should bo clipped close unco or twice each year, thereby preventing collection of filth, aud per mitting greater ease in washing the udder. It has been my experience that "kiokors" are also developed wheu breaking heifers to milk becuuso ol these long hairs. When tho milker grasps tho teat during milking tho Mil-rounding hair is included, aud with each stream drawn tho lu...
