TOWN-PLANNING FOR LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 6 January 1914
..TOWN-PLANNING FOR LIGHT. Far-reaching reform in town-plan ning as a primary factor in the battle against tuberculosis was demanded by the architect, Augustin Rey, in an ad dress made before the French Society of Civil Engincers. According to M. Rey; cities of the future must be so constructed that the direction of all the streets shall correspond to the sun's daily course in the heavens, in Qrder that the inhabitants may receive the maximum of light, which is the greatest microbe-killer in existence. The task of architects, he says, will be to plan towns in such a way that every nook and corner shall receive its share of the sun's rays for the greatest possible number of hours daily. On this account he insists that the present system of small apartments will have to go, and their places be taken by smaller and more airy dwellings. He concludes by saying that the present nickname of Paris, "The . City of Light," should be that of all towns which care for the health of their in habi...
ARTIFICIAL MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 6 January 1914
ARTIFICIAL MANURING. The whole object of artificial, manur ing being to supplement the deficien cies of the soil, it is highly desirable that a farmer should ascertain by trails in the field what is the actual amount of increase which he obtains from the application of the manures he purchases A few carefully-made ex periments will teach hini what his land and crops are really in need of. Should he use superphosphate as well as nitrate of soda for niig wheat? What dressing of the nitrate is most econo mical? Is superphosphate alone suffi cient for his turnip crop, or should ammonia or nitrate be employed as well? What is the smallest quantity of superphosphate sufficient for the crop? .WVill it pay to use pofatsh salts for his -seeds, his pasture, or his potato orop ? These and many other ques tions can only be answered by trials on his own fields.. On- the farmer's knowledge of such facts will depeid the economy with which lie is able to use purdhased manures, whiclh are - by some ...

FACTS ABOUT THE SILO. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 6 January 1914
FACTS ABOUT THE, SILO, Twenty years' experience in the use of the silo has brought about some facts about which one and all are ag reed: 1.-That a large amount of health ful cattle food can be preserved in the silo in better condition, with less ex pense of labor and land, than by any -other method known., 2. That silage comes nearer being a perfect substitute for the succulent food of the pasture than any other food that can be had in the winter. 3. Thirty pounds a day is enough silage for an average sized Jersey cow. Larger cattle will eat- more. - 4. A cubio foot of silage from the middle of a medium sized silo will av-. erage about 451b weight. 5. For 182 days, or half a year, an average Jersey cow will require about six tons of silage, allowing for unavoid able waste. 6. The circular silo, made of good hardwood staves, is. cheapest and best; 7. Fifteen feet is a good diameter, and 20 feet a godd depth. Suoh a silo will hold about 200 tons of silage, cut into half inch lengths. ...
FIGHT BETWEEN SHOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 6 January 1914
SFIGHT BETWEEN SHOWERS. Althoughl willing to meet death by a sword thrust, the hero of 100 duels has shown that he objects very strongly to having wet feet.: He is M. Rouzier Dorcieres, a man who has at his finger ends all the rules and formalities of the duel., One of his chief pleasures is to be master of ceremonies at such meet ings. His courage is undoubted, but wet feet or dirty boots he cannot stand. He had had some small difference about a medical question, and it was decided to settle the quarrel by an appeal to the sword. A meeting was arranged, and at eleven o'olock punctually the ene mies faced one another "on guard." Rapier points threatened-that matter ed nothing; but the sky was grey and promised rain-and that was serious. They set to fiercely, so fiercely that the swords were bent, and new ones had to be substituted. The sun shone-dully, and at last the rain came, after 45 minutes of fierce combat. Duellists and seconds were struck with panic, and there was a wild rus...
THE FEEBLE-MINDED AS WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 6 January 1914
THE FEEBLE-MINDED AS WORKERS. "It should be understood clearly; writes a woman doctor, that the feeble in mind, no matter how carefully they are trained, will never be able to sup port themselves. The oosit of the careful supervision which is always necessary makes it impossible that any colony should be run solely on the Iproceeds of the work done by the col onmsts What can be done is, by oareful adijustment of administration and by wise apportionment of work, ac cording to - the powers and wishes of the boys and girls cared for, to greatly reduce the sum which must be found either from the rates or from private philanthropy. The farm colony is pro bably much the best form of perman ent care for the feeble-minded, both necessarily mean the establishing of a protected trade, in competition with outsid'e labour, and because of the great variety of work whilh is provided by the cultivation of land. Other trades should be run in connection with the farming and gardening, so.that by deg...
IMPROVING EGG PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 6 January 1914
IMPROVING EGG PRODUCTION: To improve egg production and ex hibition quality m future generations requires a knowledge of the producing qualities of the individual hens, or the family line from which they are taken. One who first suggested breeding for egg production made the statement, "Heredity is the first factor." In ex planation of this, he said that a pullet from parents, both of which had come from breeding for egg production for several generations had far more c e1iarc oJ prolificacy than had pullets of ui certain ancestors. He said fur ther that not ill the female progeny. of prolific parentage inherit potential pro lifioacy, meaning that they do not in herit the latent power to produce mai y eggs. Evidently, however, a hen in order to excel in egg produc tion must be able-to eat and assimilate a large quantity of food; she must have such crop capacity as can carry to keep her digestive organs, _busy to the roost a supply of food sufficient throughout the night. Each time a...
