DAIRYING Sfl SWiTZF.RLAN'D. ! The co-.v and her produce appear to have beaten all other departments of agriculture in Switzerland, says the agricultural correspondent of the "Yorkshire Post.;' According to the most recent pub lication of the total area of the coun try - slightly leas than ten million acres, or half the size of Scotland only five and a half millions are cul tivated, and of this, corn occupies only 2!)6,000 acres, and vineyards 58,000 acres. There are practically so forage crops in our sense of the frord, and no root crops, but a con siderable area of grass land, which produces large crops in the valleys, and abundant grazing on the moun tains and their lower slopes. When we consider these figures we arc Amazed at the fact that the dairy :ows number nearly R00,000, showing i continuous niul marked increase rear by year. The director of the important Dairy School at Ilutti estimates the average yield of the cows of the country at 59-4 gallons, which is pro bably .130 g...
THE DAIRY. IMPORTANCE OF REGULARITY IN MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 11 March 1915
THE DAIRY. IMPORTANOR Ol? 11HGri.AP.ITY IN t . MIUCINC. I , Ia everything regularity is (rood practice, ' but in good dairying it is imperative. To produce large and rich yields of milk is tlm sole func tion of the dairy cow, and to do this Bhc must be of good dairy type, fed palatable and nutritious feeds and milked clean at regular periods. As a rule, the row is milked at 5 o'clock of morninrrs in summer and 7 or 8 o'clock in tli: morning in win ter. The very unequal periods are made for the cow by this sun-to-sun milking, and as a couse:;Ufnce the quality of her mil'-: flow and the . length of her annua! period are re duced. The cow can do her best only when milked at equal ami regular periods of about 12 hours each tbc year around. The full supply, of milk is not in the udder ready to l;e drawn out be fore milking time comes, but two thirds of it is produced1-,by the glands during: the operation of milk ing. The udder, however, is usually filled and the cow becomes accustom ed t...

War of the Nations. THE DUAL MONARCHY. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 11 March 1915
War of tlie ^Nations. Enropas.") THE DUAL MONARCHY. (Continued.) The Magyar or native Hun garian language is of Asiatic origin, and, although it has been subjected for nearly a thousand years to European influence; it still retains features essentially Turanian-of which family the Magyar tongue is a branch. It has been said that the Magyar language is " copious in idiomatic expressions, rich in its store of words and musical in its har monious intonation." Hence it is admirably suitable for literary and rhetorical purposes. The Hungarian language is of a re stricted and unobtrusive charac ter, due partly to the fact that there are many other tongues current in the country, but mainly owing to the almost exhaustive recognition of Latin as the lan guage of the scholar. The Roman '-.-tics who settled in the fcc , ..
