SCIENCE IN ANIMAL BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 23 March 1915

SCIENCE IN ANIMAL BREEDING. (By Frank A. Hayes, in "Hoard's Dairyman,'.') In the days of our forefathers, stock breeiling was not a science, but was carried on without any knowledge of the great scientific principles that un ,derlio' this groat field of activity. 'Hie success of the curly breeders, cannot .but be regarded as remarkable when we consider the great handicap under .which they worked. Animal breeding is not only a scienco but an art as well. lii other words, in older to be. successful," a breeder must possess cer tain natural gifts that not all mall kind possess, and he must be a student. It is only during the present century that mankind has begun to acquire accurate knowledge of the' operation of some of the laws of animal breeding. "Since tho discovery of 1S100 of Mendel's work in crossing plants, the science of gehetics has made, rapid strides, and evidences of tho true behaviour of ani mal characters are beginning to accu mulate, Any 'tacts bearing upon this importa...

NOTES ON NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 23 March 1915

NOTES ON NATURE. (By " Naturalist.") It is a good thing tliat we aro not limited in our appreciation of Nature's work by the lack of so-called wealth. Nor is it necessary that we; should be scientists or hold any special diplomas in order to feel an enjoyment of outdopr life. Without getting "too far nway from (iny subject, in a very ordinary sense, the wealth "of the few means the poverty of the many, but is Aero 110 .wealth in .the.sunshine? Anil who can claim an interest in it to the exclusion of anybody else? A mau may be as poor as a school lly or a/church mouse, or anything else that feeds only on atomic intellectual substances, or the still rarer morsels of morality; yet his heart can (ill with rapture over the ris ing or setting sun, and bis mind be en larged by observance of an insect's ways. After all, our true wealth is that which we assimilate;.we can have 110 other. There is really no such ano maly in the world as a wealth-possessed 111:111. No one can usurp more than h...

AUSTRALIAN WHEAT VALUES. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 23 March 1915

AUSTRALIAN WHEAT VALUES. 'l'lio normal wheat production of Aus tralia is' approximately 100,000,000 bushels, with .an average" price of 8/6 per bushel, the total value of the crop is,, in round numbers, £17,000,000. Every extra shilling per bushel received for wheat means an extra £5,000,000 to the Commonwealth. The London parity for wheat is at present about 5/ per bushels f.o.b. Australian ports, and it is very unlikely that the price v ill. drop below this figure during tho currency of tho war. Inderd, as has been'shown above, the tendency rather would bo for the wheat to i'iso beyond this even after the restoration of,peace. A normal harvest, would, under these circumstances, bring in . at least 000,000. whilst a good harvest in .19].? over the extended acreage should oxceed £30,000,000. The effect of such 'bountiful primary production on trade and manufactures would, be im moiise, and would aid in counteracting t'ii* inevitable depression of trade which economists anticipate wi...

RINGWORM IN CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 23 March 1915

RINGWORM IN CATTLE. Btiigfrorm is a skin disease most com "mouly found in cattle; but it may .occur iu horses, dogs, and also in the human family. It is named, doubtless, from the circulnr shapes of the patches in' the affected part. They are irregular in shape, and vary from half an inch" to. some inches. The hair from the parts affected has disappeared, and the skin is thickened and scaly. It is'com moil enough on the heads and necks of calves that have been confined. The skin is affected frequently round the. eyes. Its is a contagious affection. - It is troublesome on account of the unrest caused by the itching which is more or less present, and the extent to which its presence renders the animals un sightly. . Being coutagious, it is well to take steps to combat it. It is not, .however, readily transmitted from one "species of animal to another. There are several, methods of treatment; but any method that may be adopted will givo better results if the affected parts are well soa...
