To Tell the Age of an Egg. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 24 June 1914
To Tell the Age of an Egg. The method, explained below, of easily ascertaining whether aa egg is fresh or otherwise. comes from the Agricultural Society of Saxony. All the appuratus required is a ves sel filled with water. Placed in the water, the egg, if frer.h. will reniin resting at the buttom of the sessel in a hori,.sn tal Isosition. If, houever, the egg in not quite fr-sh, it will rest with the big crul raised higler than the small end, and the higher the big end is raised the older is the ogg.

An egg that is mrre than three months old will dloat. The reason why the egg acts thus. andti itsaelf ansers th~ question. "How old are yol ?'" is simple. As an egg gets older it-unlike sonme persons-becolmes more buoyant. The water containel in the white of the egg evaporates, and this causes the empty space at the thick end of every egg...

LARGE UDDER. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 24 June 1914
LARGE UDDER. While a large udder is sought for, it Is not always all assurance of heavy milking ability. A large uddellr may be fleshy and firm in texture, and con sequently would not surpass in pro duction a smaller udder whose tissue was of greater quality. This quality is important, and it is one point upon which a dry cow might be judged for production. The udder shouId be soft, light and spongy to the touch. Thlo skin should be soft and elastic, and covered with fine silky hair. After milking, the covering should fall in to many folds that are loose, soft andl oily.
WOMAN'S WORLD. KEEPING YOUR LIPS FROM SLIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 24 June 1914
WOMANi'S WORLD. KEEPING YOUR LIPS FROM SLIPS. In home and social life generally, gossip should be feared as an enemy, and not be tolerated as a welcome guest. It is ever so much safer and better to talk of things rather than persons, thus preventing that enemy, ill-natured gossip, from coming In. Make it a rule, and let it be strictly observed. not to say anything shabout the faults of another unless there is absolute necessity for you to do so. This necessity may arise, and your own judgment can guide you about the matter. But where it can be avoided. do not talk of the faults or evil doings of others. Why, inaeed, should you do so? You kinow yourself that you have faults, few or many, and that there are many things you may have done vwhich you prefer should not be repeant el. Well. tthen, exrcise the same charity to others that you would have extendu'd to yourself. A\nother thing to bear in mind is that, if you talk of whlat is to, the dis atvanltage of anllother, what you say wil...
WHEN NOT TO MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 24 June 1914
WHEN NOT TO MARRY. Dto lot marry to r'form .a IlmaU. le who would not reform before Inar rlage is not likely to do so aftlert'arda. There is no more fallacious hope a girl can entertain than that of chang ing an unreformed rake into a cood husband. Don't marry a natn to wholl "tes" has been saidl in a moment of mistak en sympathy or sentimtnental ecstasy. Sympthy is not :ovo, neither is ec stasy; the latter when carriedl to ex cess is a form of hIysteria, and both are poor foundations for matrimony. Don't marry a matn who has only his love to recommend him. thtere are other qualities requisite in husbands quite as important as this. A head is wanted as well as a heart; a guide, a comforter, a stay, a friend as well as an Impassioned Romeo spouting lava-like sentences of devo tion. Very often the more lava-like Romeo is the less likely to earn suf ficient to pay the butcher's bill. Don't marry a man for a livelihood; there are better, safer, and more hon orable ways by which women ca...

WHITEWASHING TREES. Dloubtless the old-time farmer who whitewashed his fruit and other trees about his house did so mainly to pre sent a neat appearance. But many of them did it as well to kill insects and their eggs which .wore harboring un der the dead bark of thle trees. Tile use o€ lime as one of the ingredients in mixtures for the lilling of insects an.l the spores of injurious fungi, has been in practice for very many years. When a boy learning the gardening business. I well remember the head gardener using a mixture of lime and sullphllr andl comnmon garden soil to paint grape vine canes in the winter sea:son. The garden soil was for the purpose of giving the mnixture the hlue of the grape cane, that it might retain Its natural appearance. The foliage of these vines were never troubled by insects or blights. At the same time that the vines were painted a little suulphur was dulsted about on the com mnol flues, which were almost wholly used for heating greenhouses in those lay...

SHEEP FARMING FLUKE IN SHEEP: ITS CAUSE AND PREVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 24 June 1914
SHEEP FARMING FLUKE IN SHEEP: ITS CAUSE AND PREVENTION. The disease affecting sheep and known as "fluke" is variously de scribed in dilfferent parts as "rot," "poke," "bane." The disease is due to the presence in the liver of a worm, In shape like a fluke fish, and hence its commonnu nlamle. Tihs worm or tluke is about an inch in length and half an incll at its greatest width. Its pre-sence in tlte liver prcdtlces dlisease of that organ, and the symptoms sltown by the sheep can be traced to ctangges caltSed itn the liver by tInle fluke. ilow does ite fluke get into the liver? IFlIukes it thle liver produce '::'s. and! tlitese eggs pass withl the bi'e into the intestine, and are voided with thle tdung. Tile eggs hatch out s!d the body, and give rise to small creatures that in no way resemble the lduke. They are capable of movement in water, and, therefore, damp, moist pla::es are favorable to their develop ttl'nt. In sulch places certain minute :n:,ils usutally albound, and in the bo...

HERE'S TO THE HEROES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 24 June 1914
HERE'S TO THE HEROES. We give unstintedt praise to the man Who is brave enough to die; But the man wvho struggles unflinch ingly u Against the c ents of destiny And bears the mtorm of adversity We pass unnoticed by. We've plaudits and tears for him who falls, Borne cldown in the shock of strife; But a word of cheer we neglect to say To him who plods on his dreary way And fights in silence from day to day The unseen battles of life. There's courage,.I grant, required to face Grim death on the gory field, There's also courage required to meet Life's burden and sorrow; to brave defeat; To strive with evil and not retreac; To suffer and not to yield. Some moments are there in every life When the spirit longs for rest: When the heart is filled with a bleak Sdespair, When the weight of trouble, remorse, and care,, Seems really greater than we can bear, And death were a welcome guest. But we crush it downand we go our way To the duties that lie In wait, From.day to day we renew the fight T...

Colouring Copper. Copper and brass lend themselves readily to a colouring process and may be worked to all shades imagin able, excepting the lighter shades, which are lost on a copper surface, as that metal cannot be given a tint lighter than its natural colour. says a correspondent of Sheet Metal Shop. Zinc colours fairly well Ssometimes, through a narrow range, while tin is a hard metal to handle as regards oxide colours." Copper can be carried through the entire range of shades: fromn a very light copper colour to the darkest brown, or even black, by merely oxidising the surface of the metal 3Make a paste of iron oxide and graphite, with wood alcohol or with plain water, and apply this to the article, which is then heated in an oven or over a gas flame. It is better to use alcohol, as it dries out osuch quicker. The colour obh tained will dependl on the amount of iron oxide mixed with the gl-a phite, and the length of time the heat was manaitnaillel. The more oxil, i th. ,eatin(g...
