FEED WHAT THE COW NEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915

FEED WHAT THE COW NEEDS. (From "American Agriculturist.) Carrying the feed of silage or hay and grain and putting it into the manger twice a day, a man has an opportunity to learn more about the individuality of his cows than anyone else can possibly tell him. The most successful men have been those who observed every little de tail closely and knew within, a few hours if anything abnormal showed itself in the conduct of any animal. The cow most commonly found in unimproved herds probably is the one that has a strong digestive sys tem and can eat a large amount of feed with a strong appetite, but uses it in some other way than in milk production. She usually is not a profit maker, and needs to be elim inated. On the other hand, sometimes a cow is found which has a strong milk secreting system and has every tendency toward being a high-pro ducing animal, yet lacks the ability to digest sufficient food to supply this heavy production. Such a cow can be recognized by the feeder be caus...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915

The well-known farm, "Oak Park," the property of the late Jas. Mackintosh, containing 235 acres, will be offered for sale to-day. There are some nice crops on the property this year, which should recommend it to intending purchasers. During the last week the binders have been going from early morn ing till late in the evening, and it is astonishing the quantity of hay crops that have been cut since the beginning of last week. Everywhere you look you see stooked paddocks. One machine has a record of 100 acres for five consecutive days, aver aging 20 acres per day. There is not very much hay standing now, only those left for grain. The crops came in very quickly, owing to the hot windy weather. Farmers are all out in their reckoning with the twine, more being required than was expected. Taken on the aver age, the crops are good. There does not seem to be any idle hands about, and should the numbers not increase at carting in time there will be a shortage of men. Rainfall for the week,...

The Sportsman's Ducks. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915

The Sportsman's Ducks. Mirs. S., a lady resident in Scotland, while out driving one morning, over took a gentleman friend on his way to enjoy a day's duck-shooting. As she passed, he called out, "1'll send you a brace of ducks to-night," and went on his way. But the ducks were wild indeed that day,. or Mr. B. was a bad shot, for at night he returned home with only two snipe for his bag. Remembering his promise to Mrs. S., and not wishing that she should know how unsuccess ful he had been, he called his "boy," and told him to go to the market, buy a pair of ducks, and leave them at the house of Mrs. S., with his compliments. Two weeks afterwards he received in invitation to lunch there, and be fore he left his hostess took occasion to thank him for his present. "They are lovely ducks. Won't you come and see them?" said she. "See them!" said the astonished Mir. B. "Ha'ven't you used them yet? I fear they have been hanging too long." "Oh, no," she replied. "Come and see."

HEALTH IN HOT WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915

1HEALTH IN HOT WEATHER. A little common sense will do a whole lot to insure one's health dur ing the hot days of heavy work. Many farmers are finding they can get lmore done with less effort if they knock off for an extra hour during the extreme heat of midday. They prove the truth of the old saying, "one hour of early morn in midsum mer is worth two hours at midday." Drink freely of pure water, especi ally between meals, but do not have it too cold. The habit of drinking ice water when the body is very hot accounts for much ill health later on. Lie flat on your back in the shade before dinner, ift only for five min utes; relax by almost lettiig'~ your muscles fall off and by forgetting everything. Thus to free mind and body 'from all care and work, if only for five or 10 minutes before a meal, is wonderfully invigorating. Take your work as easy as possible for the first half hour after eating heartily. Women should take such a rest cure every afternoon. If you find yourself "going ...

SWAT THE FLY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915

SWAT THE FLY.... "Swat the fly" is now the slogan of the people of city, town and coun tryside. This is the breeding season for this dangerous pest, and a most determined war will be waged against it since it has been learned that the insect spreads dangerous diseases; yet, with every precaution, it will manage to run the gauntlet of screen doors, traps,. poisons, &c., and we will find him serenely walk ing over our bread, butter, meat; and, in fact, all the food upon the table, or perchance he will come to grief in a cup of tea or milk. A housewife has invented a simple, inexpensive fly trap that, for real, results, puts all kinds of traps in the shade. There is no patent pend ing upon it, and everyone can read ily construct one. Take a cheese hoop, tack a piece of canvas or fine wire screening over the top. Spread a piece of canvas or some kind of cloth on a table, place three blocks of wood about an inch thick and two inches long upon the cloth on the table so that the ho...

£25,000 FOR FIVE SHILLIN[?] [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915

£25,000 FOR FIVE SHIL,LIN~1F For five shillings given to a stran ger eight years ago, Joseph Clair, a chemist, will receive £25,000. Eight years ago a man who was evi dently suffering from the effects bf the "cold grey dawn of the morning after," came into Clair's shop and told him a pitiful story, declaring that he had not a copper to get a crust, and lie begged for a shilling. After a few moments' talk Clair gave the man five shillings, and the stranger departed with the remark, "You'll never forget this, young man. It will be richly repaid to you." Clair promptly forgot the incident until about five years ago, when a ma;n again came into the shop, and, recalling the loan, made the druggist a present of a handsome gold-headed cane. Clair did not forget the matter so quickly then, but he was thoroughly sLrprised a few days ago when he re ceived a letter from Meillelr and Mell leir, lawyers, of ltockvale, saying that losoiph Waters, a wealthy farmer near treat town, had left his ent...

TO MOTHERS OF BOYS. Boys demand especial care at the mother's hands. They should be trained to show consideration to oth. ers, and general good breeding. A lad who is awkward, grumpy ano Ill at ease in the presence of visitors is a painful sight, especially when as frequently happens-his sisters point a contrast by ease and refine mtnt of manner and a knowledge of etiquette. Let your boys wait on you. Do not Ce their humble slave. Nor should they be allo-ved to tyrannise over their sisters. That is the way to make them selfish, arrogant and generally Insufferable.
