ASPENDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 24 January 1914
ASPNDALE, The member for the district, Mr W S Keast, is very interested in the proposal to have a railway station placed at Edithvale road. He con siders it is necessary for the residents of that portion of the district; and a probable source 'of highly profitable revenue to the department. He has the matter well in hand, and will probably have an interview arranged between residents and commissioners when the latter are making their annual tbur of inspection, which is likely to take place very soon. The recent fire destroyed many properties in the south end of As. pendale in the course of its travels. Among the fine places totally de molished was one belonging to Mr I T. Flanagan, hotelkeeper, Mel bourne. It is very pleasing to note that both in Chelsea and Aspennale also, the losers are already taking active steps to replace their former dwellings, This will, no doubt, take some considerable time, but once the rebuilding is started it means that the district will regain at an [ear...

SPECTRES THAT STOLE MONEY. SAVINGS CARRIED OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 24 January 1914
SPECTRES THAT STOLE MONEY, SAVINGS CARRIED OFF. The way in which a French family of farmors called on "spirits" to aid them in an attempt to avoid paying the rent is causing some amusement in Paris. Twvo 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 their flower pots and disarranged their gardens. Mmo. Guitton, the younger said, too, that by night she had seen through her window two black men-or demons who walked up and down, casting cur ses at the house. It was discovered on the next day that the family's whole savings had disappeared. Appeal was made to the priest and to the 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. Engiries wore continued by the police and the "stolen" money was found under a staircase, where the brothers Glitton had hidden it.

BARBED WIRE CUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 24 January 1914
BARBED WIRE CUTS, Farm animals aro always more of loss liable to injury from wire outs, and it is important to give quick at. tention to all such injuries. When the wound is severe it will pay to em ploy a veterinarian to dress the wound, Where the services of a good voterin* arian cannot be obtained, farmers wili have to handle the case themselves. The ordinary wound will heal if not interfered with. This interference may be from germs, parasites, mod. dling with the wound, on the part of the man or the animal itself, The first thing to do is to stop the hloemorr. hlgeo, This can be accomplished by a tight band of clean, white muslin, applied either over or above the wound. A thread may be used un. der the artery by using a needle, and tied, Do not use flour, dirt, coo. webs, or anything of that sort on the wound, They are unnecessary and may produce a serious infection of the wound. Having checked the bleed. ingp, remove the clots of blood and cut off the ragged edges of tissue wi...
IMPORTANCE OF REGULARITY IN MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 24 January 1914
IMPORTANCE OF REGULARITY IN MILKING. In everything regularity if good practico, but in good dairying it is iu peritive. To produco largo and rich yields of milk is the solo function of the dairy cow, and to do this sho must be of good dairy type, fed palatable and nutritious feeds and milked clean at regular periods. Aso a rule, the cow is milked at 5 o'clock of mornings in summer and 7 or 8 o'clock in mornings in the win ter, The very unequal periods are made for the cow by this sun to sun milk ing, and as a consequence, the quality of her milk flow and the length of her annual period are reduced, The cow can do lier' best only when milked at equal and regular periods of about 12 hours each the year round. The full supply of milk is not in the udder ready to be drawn out before milking time comes, but two thirds ot it is produced in the glands during the operation of milking, The ud der, however, is usually filled, and the crow becomes used Go this, but if the milking is delayed, a...
THE HAND SEPARATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 24 January 1914
THE HAND SEPARATOR.. jThe 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 its advantages, but in the hands, t. a careless person it very soon becones a detriment. Most of the st.ada d machinos are made to run ,easily, and almost as smoothly as a sewing ma ohino, but how many after being used a whilo turn like a feed chol:per, and for noise, a thrashing machine is not in it, Tio iroubio is generally sr3,;:e abld to nclean conditions of the gear ing and lack of oil, Not that oil is not used, but the oil holes and ehan nols become clogged up and the oil cannot reach the gearing. One of the first things a farmer should do after buying a separator is to get per feotly 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 the gearing ab polutely free ...
DEEP PLOUGHING FOR OATS. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 24 January 1914
JEEP PLOUGHING FOR OATS. On the Iron Mountain railroad de monstration farm at Hope Ark., oat land ploughed four inches deep yielded but 23 bushels to the acre, while the same land yielded 77 bushels to the aore, This inoreasoe results from the faot that deep ploughing afforded a bot'ter reservoir for soil' water, and dry weather did not delay the growth. In the deeper ploughing a larger am. ount of moisture came in contaot with more soil particles and dissolved more plant food, There was also more apace for root development, and the larger root development was enabled to sBe. ouro more mpisturo and more plant food,
