RATIONS FOR FARM HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914

RATIONS FOR FARM HORSES. The horse lhs a much smaller stom ach than the cow, awl this stomach acts most efficiently when about two-thirds full. Probably the best nmethod of feed ing horses is to supply regular meals at fairly short intervals. These should consist of a generous proportion of concentrated foods, of which the most suitable are oats, maize, peas, and beans: and also a certain amount of chaffed hay or good oat straw. It mnust o remembered that the horse has a much more delicate digcstiva system than any other class of farm ani mal; therefore there seems some good reason for bestowing just as much, if not more, care on the methods of foeed. ing the animal as is usually displayed in tilhe feeding of, say, a dairy cow. Re. gularity in feeding and general man agement aire two important essentials in tmh care of the team. Not only must the meals be supplied at regular inter vals, but the quantities of food should be constant as far as possible, and suf ficient for one meal. A...

REJECTION OF TRAMWAY DRAFT BILL. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 24 January 1914

REJECTION OF TRAMWAY DRAFT BILL. To the Editor. Sir,-It was with a great deal of sur prise that I and many other residents of Preston learned that the Northcote council had rejected the Draft Bill for the prososed St, George's Road Tram, after it had been carried by good major ities in the two other councils interested in the scheme., But when we look back and consider the attitude of the North cote council on other matters concerning the welfare of Preston, then the blow is not so bad, Cr, Tharratt and his brother councillors who voted against the Bill need scarcely refer to Brunswick street as sleepy hollow when they have proved that they are veritable Rip Van Winkles by their action, and that they desire the Town of Northcote, with High street as its centre, to become their forest where they can sleep and dream unmolested by any outside influences, Thank goodness there is another way open for the resi dents of Preston to get direct commnni cation with Melbourne by means of electr...
