SPECTRES THAT STOLE MONEY. SAVINGS CARRIED OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 January 1914
SPECTRES THAT STOLE MONEY. SAVINGS CARRIED OFF. The way in which a French family ot farmers called on "spirits" to aid them in an attempt to avoid paying the rent is causing some amusement in Paris. •Two brothers^ named Guitton, occu pied, with their wives and children, a small farm near Saint-Amand. One day they told their neighbors of in visible- hands, which upset tlheir flower pots and disarranged their gard'ens. Mme. Guitton, the younger, said, too, that by night she had seen through her u-indow two black men—or demons— \Vho walked up and down, easting cur ses at the house. It was discovered on the next day that the family's whole savings had disappeared. Appeal waa made to the priest and to tne police. But neither the Latin' of the one nor the vigilance of the other (says the "Matin") could throw light upon the matter for the moment. Enquiries were .continued by the police and the "stolen" money was found under a staircase, where the brothers Guitton !iad hidden it.,.
HOME-CORED BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 January 1914
HOME-CORED BACON. Some time ago we referred to a baton curing demonstration held at Bathurst, under the auspices of.tlie local A., H., and P. Association; the "demonstrator being Mr. D. Hogarth, of that city. The process adopted is one that has been in vogue among certain families in the North of England for centuries, and ;may be considered-onp'of those old family secrets, known only to, a limited number, and highly profitable to the owners. At the demonstration, 11 pigs oi varying weight, breed, and feeding were treated. Some of them weighed under 200 IB., while a couple turned the scale at 340 and 350 lb .respectively. All of the bacon has since been Vout into, and in every case satisfaction has been expressed as to the quality of the product. One of the owners has sold aU that he could spare of the baoon at . 1/ per lb, and would make a great fa vor of selling the'hams at: l/6-.per'lb: The' other owners have, so far, refused to'sell at any jirice.: .Since the article appeared Mr...
ADVANTAGES OF CLIPPING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 January 1914
! ADVANTAGES OF CLIPPING HORSES. First.—Tho natural .process of moul ding or shedding the hair is a draft on ■tho vitality of the animals. The ap ipetite is diminished, and with work or ipleasure, horse exertion is irksome dur ing that period. Clipping of arti ficial removal of the liair accomplishes :in a very short space of time what iNature requires much more time to jdo. In other words. Nature1" is an ticipated in her work, and the ani jmal's system saved a call upon it. | Second.—A ohpped horse is less 'liable to take'cold than a long-coated horse, because the evaporation of pers ipiration is more rapid. A "hot" -uorse will cool but much quicker with :a short coat. Every groom is aware jof this fact. _ . i Third.—A clipped horse requires less 'fuel (food) to maintain bodily heat than •the long coatecL^horse; therefore clip ping as a matter of economy' should he generally practised. | l^outfth.—iA ohpped !horae loloks more cleanly, acts more sprightly, and keeps in better health...

COOKED OR UNCOOKED FOOD FOR PIGS. WHICH IS BEST? [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 January 1914
COOKED OR UNCOOKED FOOD • FOR PSGSr "' WHICH iS BEST? The economic value of cooking food for pigs is frequently- discussed, and upon ' the" point divergent views ex pressed* An interesting experiment upon the subject has been conducted by one of the agricultural high schools in Wales, and the results there obtain ed go-to indicate that there is a slight profit in favour of cooking food. Six pigs were used in the experiment, be ing of the large Yorkshire and. Berk shire cross. - They were fifteen weeks old at the beginning. The ration given to lot one was 3J lb boiled potatoes, 2J lb barley meal; and to lot two fcho same quantities, only the potatoes were raw. The potatoes were boiled in sufficient quantity to last a week, and were supplied cold, whereas the potatoes in the case/of the second ra-. tion were pulped after being thorough ly washed. -The potatoes and meai were 'mixed with water and then sup plied to the pigs. The total gain :u the case, of the lot which had the boil ed p...
MAKING A STACK COVER. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 January 1914
MAKING A STACK COVER. In requesting information upon "the best mixture to put on a hessian stack cover to make it waterproof and not to rot it," a correspondent explains thai he has tried Stockholm tar and mut ton fat, hut that mixture makes the cover too heavy, and the tar is liable to .bura the fibre of the'cover. This "Vrespondent is informed that, a sat isfactory-; •wat£rproof_ cover1 cannot' be Tttade frbm he^ian, and in the long run it is cheaper to get a canvas cover, and Vave it passed through a solution to make it rotproof.

POTTING BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 January 1914
" - - POTTING BUTTER; A practical correspondent, in reply to an enquiry, thus described the methods he has found successful:—"A vessel intended for keeping butter should bo deep, with a mouth not exceedingly 10 inches in width. Batter made foi keeping should be churned from ripen ed cream. The teimperature on tho day of churning should be as low as possible, and if water can be obtained at 50 deg. for washing, so much tho better. After at least three wash ings, during which the butter is rooked gently to prevent its aggregation, it should be brined and ' subsequently placed, in a trough to drain and dry. If a butter box is provided for cooling, so much the better, inasmuch as for keeping the butter should be quite firm before salting and working on the but ter worker. The salt should be ground almost as fine as' flour, having first been thoroughly dried. It is then distributed on the butter, after tho roller has been passed over it, at the rate of three-quarters of an ounce to the p...

THE HAND SEPARATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 January 1914
. THE HAND SEPARATOR. The value of a hand separator de pends very largely upon the person who runs it and cares for the cream. There is no.question but what the separator has itsadvantages? but in .the hands &lt;f a careless person it very soon becomes a detriment. Most or the stvida d machines are made to run easily, and almost as smoothly as a.sewing uia ohine, but how many after beiing used a while-turn like a. feed chopper, and, for noise, a thrashing machine is not in it; The trouble is generally. ura„9 aWe to unclean .conditions of tne. gear ing and lack' of oil. Not that oil is not used, buttiieoilholesand chan nels' bfeooffid closed >up: anilrthe oil - cannot reach the gearing.. One of the first' things a farmer should do after buying a separator-is to get per fectly familiar with every part of the gearing. This-is as. important , to un derstand as the bowl. Milk very often gets into the gearing, and this always causes trouble . till removed. Watch this, and keep ...

HOW TO PROTECT ANIMALS FROM FLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 January 1914
HOW TO PROTECT ANIMALS FROM FUIES. In response to numerous enquiries, for a.cheap and effective substance to keep flies off horses andcows, S.

The formula is as follows:— Neutral oil 4 pints Oil of wood.tar .. .... 1 pint . Mix and shake well. Apply lightly with a. flexible brush, or with spray pump. Avoid exoessive application,, as a. very light application is sufficient to protest the animal for some time, as, for instance, during a milking i o riod,,or longer.

OLD SILAGE AND NEW. A perplexed farmer recently wrote to the Agricultural Department, in N.8.W., inquiring if he could safely fill up his silage pit, in wkich there was about twenty tons of silage from last year, by putting new silage on top of the old. The answer receiv ed: from thel, Department, was that it would. be safa. to. do so,. provided that any mouldy or dry silage on the top . of . the quantity still in the pit was' first removed,. and; also that, precau tions were taken against too much moisture reaching the old. silage.
ENSILAGE—THE FAVORITE FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 24 January 1914
ENSILAGE—THE FAVORITE FODDER. (By "Agriculturalist" in "New Zealand Dairyman."^ That the feeding of oows is one ol the most important matters connected with dairying, no one can gainsay, but of the many &lt;foods in general use, I will at present touch on only one—ensil age. Wo argument, - to my mind, could be adduced against the use or ensilage, and any contention to justify the setting aside of fodder of such para mount importance would not hold ground in the face,of practical experi ence on the dairy' farm; Ensilage contains no substance that would in any way tend to interfere with the orgaa-" isms of the cow, while it contains .-o little acid that its color is hot objec tionable. It can be made when hay cannot, and even this is an important point, especially in Southland and Tar anaki where the weather is so variable, it may not supersede .hay-making, ba: that , is probably because of the vane'-y of uses which the colonial farmer puts1 hay to. Regarding the preparation o...

ON GOLDEN WINGS. ; (By- W. Howell Poole). CHAPTER XXI. GAB/TON COMES TO GRIEF. A southerly wind and a cloudy suy Proclaim it &lt;a hunting morning. We have said, that Arthur .was con stantly haunted by strange and undefin able memories of the past. Not that he strove to put such memories from him. That were impossible. Eva's pale face arose too constantly before him, creating an endless, sad regret for the happy life'denied him. Such memories were even with him now as. he strolled leisurely through the grounds of Lynwood, to be awakened from his reverie by the gathering of a hunting-party in the avenue, which he had reluctantly promised to attend, and . therefore had no recourse but to hasten to the Manor to make some trifling al - terations to his appearance. He had already visited an outlying cover in the early morning, accompanied by Charley Westerton, Lord Garton, and a few of his own college-friends, who were gath ered together, at Sir Laurence's secret wish, to help di...
