WEANING THE FOAL. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 28 May 1914

WEANING THE FOAL. The hardest thing to overcome in weaning foals is the actual loss of the companionship of the mother, which causes the colt to worry and fret. Horses are liervcus animals, and the colt, 'being deprived of his "best friend," often spends much time in running up and down his paddock or stall, neighing, pawing and wliimp • ering in a vain effort to find an es cape which may lead at least to com pany of his kind, if not of his mother. To take the place of his (lam, the best possible substitute is another colt. Where a colt of the same age is not available, the use of a yearling ing arrangements are such that the yearling gets his share of the feed given. For the best results, it is ne cessary to keep the foal which is be ing weaned out of sight and hearing of the dam, as every time they see or hear each other only serves to pro long the period of fretting by reviving their memories. The main point in the weaning, all things considered, is feeding the co!t. On no accoun...

TRICKING THE PORTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 28 May 1914

TRICKING THE PORTERS. As illustrating the unfounded com plaints which are sometimes made against railway servants, Mr. W. F. Jackson, the general manager of tlie North British Railway Company, has been telling a good story, the facts of which,, lie said, were ascertained in the investigation of a complaint made by the principal actor. An old lady turned up at one of the Glasgow stations, and going up to a porter said: "I say, porter, can you tell me where I will get my train?" "Where are you going, madam?" he asked. "What-have you got to do with that?. Can you tell me where I will get my train?" '•'But I cannot tell without " , "Well,- I'm not going to tell you where I'm: going. I'll get someone else to help me." With that;.the old lady toddled far ther up the platform, and meeting an other •'porter propounded her conun drum to him... . , . "Where are you going, madam?" was his natural question. ■" "Oh," she retorted, "you are just as impertinent as your mate. I'm not go ing to tell...

THE HOUSEHOLD. THE USE OF THE RAISIN. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 28 May 1914

i • THE HOUSEHOLD. THE USE OF THE RAISIN. Tho dried fruits, such as raisins, dales, figs, currants, etc., are not only delicious to the taste, ibut are also among the most nutritive of foods. In the past these fruits have been too little known outside of rich fruit cakes and mincemeat; consequently their who.esomeness has not been adequately appreciated. They may be used to advantage in many other ways. Fruit Bread.—Fruit bread is becom ing very . popular. When making bread, reserve a part of tho dough, to which add some well-washed currants or seeded raisins, a little sugar and butter, and raise and bake the same us the plain bread. Currant Loaf.—Take two cupfuls of bread dough, one egg, half a cupful of sugar, half a teaspoonful of salt, two tablespoon fills of butter, one lea spoonfiK of flavoring or spice, one rounded teaspoonful of baking-powder and one cupful of .well-Hour currants. j'3eat the other ingredients together, until you can sc-e no streaks of dough, before adding th...

penny at a time, to church or Sunday school. The remainder can be spent ns they choose; hut if tliey spend too much for trifles let thera feel the need of some necessary until they learn better habits. While I would not teach children to hoard their money, yet they should learn to save for future needs. They get much more pleasure from giving birthday gifts to their friends if they can buy them with money they have earned, and, perhaps, have saved by some self-denial. If they make mistakes, al: thoy no doubt will at first, and buy carelessly, they will learn by experi ence, and the lessons will be remem bered. The habits of thrift and gen erosity thus established in child hood will be invaluable in all their after-life. As swarms of noxious insects are less easily mastered than raging 'beasts, so is the victory over small temptations greater than that over heavy trials.

THE VALUE OF MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 28 May 1914

THE VALUE OF MONEY. Someone has said, "Money does not make the man; but things are apt to be much more comfortable when the man makes money." AVe read of misers who love money just for the pleasure it gives them to hoard it, to handle it, and to count it over; but such cases are rare. Money is chiefly valued for what it can briug, and it seems foolish for a person to claim to care nothing for it. True, money alone cannot buy health, education, friends, and happi ness; but if rightly valued and used, it can help to give us all of these. Of course, the environment, character, and habits of a person shape his views 011 all subjects. If one has seriously felt the need of money, and is obliged to work hard to obtain it, he wiH be much more likely to know its true value than the person to whom it has come without any effort of his own. It is said that women as a class do not know the value of money, and are prone to spend it foolishly. As far as my acquaintance goes, this is not true. Cer...

"BRAINS SUPPLIED HERE." [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 28 May 1914

"BRAINS SUPPLIED HERE." Is it possible to provide tlie feeble minded with more 'brain until they are normal? Wild though the possi bility may seem to the lay mind, it ha.', nevertheless, been seriously dis cussed at the Congress of Medicine in Paris. Furthermore, experiments in the scieuce which is known as "or ganotherapy" have already been at tempted. This rcience really consists of treat ing diseased . organs with medicines made from similar organs. It is point ed out by medical experts that the building up or doctoring of one organ with extracts from a similar one was practised 2000 years ago, although, of course, in a very crude fashion. It is on record that patients suffering from an alio tion of any particular part of their system were given the same part of an nnimal to eat, with the idea or repairing the local waste and dam r\gc. Thus consumptives were order ed to eat sheep lungs, -while for dys ne;iiies was prescribed a diet in which the stomach of calves ranked as the chi...

THE POULTRY YARD. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 28 May 1914

THE POULTRY YARD. The fowls "love "an-occasional dose o£--charcoal. Wheat and oats in rotation make a good feed. Sprinkle dry ashes or dry earth un der the roosts frequently. Change the dust bath every two weeks; it will help keep the fowls free from lice. Sprinkling the hot ashes from the coal stoves under roosts will aid in keeping the fowls free from throat and lung troubles. There is no advantage in allowing the poultry to tramp around in thf> snow. Better keep them confined while the weather is bad. In putting eggs aside to keep for setting care should be taken to keep at as even a temperature as possible: they should be turned regularly every two or three (lays. Lime water is not only a good cor rective of bowel disease, but is also a good remedy for soft shelled eggs. Keep a supply convenient where the fowls can help themselves. One of the most important items in setting hens early is to have the nests warm and dry. Make them tight and set them in the warmest part of the h...
