SOME POINTS ON PLOUGH SHARPENING. The man on tho farm nlio lias » small blacsksmitli's shop of his ow.n must know a few of the fundament.!W of shop work before he can maKe any uso of his shop. There is nothing more useful to tho man who has a small shop tliau knowing how to shar pen plough lays, for good work can not be done with a dull or badly shar pened plough. The principal point to remember in plough work is getting the lay shaped and tempered right. Good work can not be done with a lay poorly shaped. A littlo mistake along this lino will increase tho draft and thus increase the power necessary to pull the plough. In sharpening tho lay always draw the tdgo of tho share with the face to the anvil making the bevel underneath. Tho lay should lit the mould-board a* snugly as possible. To toll whoiher the lay is properly shaped, placo it mi the tloor or bench just as it woulti rest iu the furrow. If tho entire cutting edge touches the floor it is sot right.

SOUR SKIM MILK FOR CALVES [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 8 October 1914

cfUiR ?.KU4_MJJK_KnH _rAI VFS well 011 sour skim milt as they do on sweet will be interesting news to many farmers who have hitherto been kept from raising calves by the expense of Keeping tile mils sweet in hot weather. Tlii.-> extensive experiment, carried out by the U.S. Departnie.it of -Vgicul ture, indicate to be quite unnecessa y. The calves will make as rapid gains on sour skim milk. In winter, 't is truo, this is n it quite so satisfactory. It chills the calves and some of them drink it with great reluctance. Very young calves have been known to re I'usj it altogether. On the other hand, ot' course, it is much easier to keep tlie. milk sweet in winter. In calling the attention of farmers to these facte, however, the Depart ment at the same time emphasises an important precaution. Unless the milk is produced and kept under clean ly conditions, it may become contami nated with disease-producing bacteria, farmers should therefore allow the milk to sour quickly and then feed ...

The quantity of metal put 011 tho roads iu this shire every year is about 1200 yards. That means that, in the past, we could only run a ma chine for from 17 days for the larger inachiuo to 30 days for tho smaller, exclusive of time for shifting.

Specialist Explains Cause of Stomach Trouble. Valuable Advice to Sufferers. "There are many different forms of stomach Iruuble," said a well known specialist recently, "but practically all ate traceable to excessive acidity and food formeutation. That is why the results obtained from the use of drugs are usually so disappointing. Admitting fermentation and conse quent acidity of the food contents to : be tin: underlying cause of most forms j of indigestion, it naturally follows that the use of a reliable antacid, j such us the ptiro bisurated magnesia ! which is so frequently prescribed by j physicians, will produco better re- j suits than any known drug or com- j binatiou of drugs.

Something Like Gratitude. "Excuse me," said a visitor from the south to a prominent citizen of Townsville, who was giving him a taste of Queensland hospitality, "ex cuse me, but would you kindly tell why you call your beautiful villa "Eight." "Pure gratitude," said his host. I owe all my prosperity to what tliat name denotes. It's like this—Four years ago I was terribly down 011 my luck and iny belongings amounted ouly to ouo shilling and a penny stamp. How to invest that so as to set me straight ? Well, with out a moment's hesitation, I sent the shilling along to tilt; secretary, Eight Hour Art Union, Sydney, and I won a big prize. It was a diamond brace let, by the way—an adornment I don't indulge in. But I turned it into cash, and with the money I made a good start in business. I'm now as solid as here and there one. I don't owe a penny to anyone, but I've a fondness for the institution that mado me what 1 am. That's why I call my houie "Eight," and that's why, regular as tha tim...
