IS THE WHALE DISAPPEARING? The fact that the whale is disappei;r: ing is pointed out by the head of the Paris Natural History Museum.

The danger is as great from Enlglish enterprise. This ae count of thb ffuturo extinction of the whale led the Academy to pass resolu tions recommiending the interest of the government in the matter, and calling for an international commission.

In consequence of a clashing of con tracts, her husband, himself a profes sional diver, requested his wife to re lieve him,, of the contract to give a series of exhibitions of marine diving in the Brighton Aquarium by undertak ing it herself. "It required a good deal of courage"'' she says, "to givemy consent, but at last I dlid, and never shall I forget how nerve-trying was my "first experience. Even preparing myself for the dive was an ordeal. "'First of all my body was encased in large sweaters, then my rubber trousers and costume were drawn on.

FEEDING WHEY TO YOUNG STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 15 May 1914
FEEDING: WHEY TO YOUNG STOCK. "Now York Produce "Review" has 'been asking its readers to give their :experience of feeding whey to young stock. Here are three of the replies r`eoeived: 1st.-The whey shoildd-be clean and -fod in clean troughs. '4ivelve pounds' of whey equal about one pound of grain for pig and poultry teed. Two pounds'of whey equal ene pound of skiim-milk as feed. Sour whey can be fed, but we prefer' sweet sterilised whey. The troughs should be of 'me-' tal, such as :galvanised iron ones, to' keel) them from souring, so they can, be easily cleaned. Have a large trough for pigs and a' smaller one for chickens and a faucet at one end of the trough, - so they can be easily cleaned. 2nd.-Have had no experienct along. this line, Do not think it could be: made profitable unless there was a largo supply of whey and one was able to conduct the business on a large scale. If a factory was already pro vided with suitable quarters for the animals and the, maker had sufficient ti...

THE :ENSILAGE. STACK. THE QUESTIONS OF SIZE, MA TERIAL, AND CURING. Whien the dairy farmer decides to make an ensilage stack he should se loet a level site-and set out the staok square. rather than oblong, so as to have the. greatest capacity with the least exposure to the atmosphere. It is at the sides of the stack that the waste occurs. - The stack-bottom should be firm. Cut sufficient grass or other crop to provide material to make a layer Oft. to Sft. thick. Cart the grass as soon as mown and firm this as soon as possible, remembering that the usual prcooss of stack-building i. reversed in ensilage-making, for the sides must be higher -than the centre, and a damp or wet day is rather better than a dry one. 'When the -whole has settled these sides should- be as dense as the rest -of the stack; for. with the exclusion of air, waste is avoided. - The following day the first layer will have heated to probably 180 deg.
