BLOWING HIS OWN TRUMPET. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914

blowing his own trumpet. When you hear a fellow boasting Of the brave deeds he has done, Don't disturb him, let him tell you AH his smart things one by one; But remind him when he's finished— Yes, his pardon humbly beg— That the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. No doubt you have met people— There are lots of them, you know— Who to promise aye are ready, At performing very slow. In fair weather they're staunch com rades, But in foul they show the leg; For the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. Babbling streams make far more noise Than the stately rivers' flow. Though upon the latter, commerce Busily goes to and fro. So it is with human mortals, Workers on in silence peg; For the hen that cackles loudest Does not lay the biggest egg. So of boasters I would warn you, Don't believe half what they say, For the man who's aye a-blowing His own trumpet's just a jay. And experience will teach you Never of them favors beg; For the hen that cackles lou...

Insufferable. "So you broke your engagement with him?" "Yes." "What for?" "He's a conceited thing. I simply couldn't stand him." "I never heard him brag. What makes you think him conceited?" "All the time we were engaged he never once told me that he was un worthy of my love."

STRANGE COINCIDENCES Scientific and Literary Parallels. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914

STRANGE COINCIDENCES Scientific and Literary Parallels. In the lives of most of us coinnci dence has played a • part. Probably nine out of every ten people can re call events and dates which, co-incid ing with one another, are a source of wonderment. There are some coinci dences, however, which are of such a character as to call for more than casual comment. in the November issue of the "Strand Magazine," for instance, there is a photograph illustrating a phen omenon oniy visible in the tropics— that of sunshine at noon when no sha dow is thrown by objects exposed to the sun's rays, the explanation being that the ship upon which the photo graph was taken was at the moment in the exact nadir of the sun's zenith. The penomenon was observed and re corded by Mr. W. B. Gibbs in latitude 15 deg. South, in February of last year, and it is a singular coincidence that precisely the same phenomenon was witnessed in 1SS1 or 1882 by Cap tain W. M. Gibbs, of Cardiff, at about the same time of th...

DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914

DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. An English dairying authority says: The elimination of the worthless "ani mals should be one of the chief ob jects of the cow keeper. •Milk records kept carefully and sys tematically furnish reliable informa .tion which enables a eow keeper to de itect these worthless animals; and it pays him to dispose of them at once. There are some farmers, of course, who may be tempted to rely wholly on their own judgment as far as the milking capacities of any cow is con cerned; but guess-work of this kind can teach nothing what it costs to feed cows, nor whether such food is being economically fed in relation to the average quantity of milk produced.. Milk producers need to study this question of cost of food in relation to milk yield very carefully indeed. The fact is clear that a cow giving, say, 800 gallons per annum costs practic ally no more to feed than one which only gives .600 gallons; yet, compara tively speaking, there is a loss of «E6 on the latter, ...

SCOURING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914

SCOURING CALVES. From experiments carried out in Germany it is claimed to have been discovered that sour milk given to calves from the first to the fifth day of their lives, forms an excellent pre ventive of scour. The constant losses —sometimes of valuable pedigree i calves—are well known in most herds, j 'and are attributed to the curdling of I the milk in the stomach. The bacteria I in sour milk are supposed to act bene ficially. In Germany it is called yog hurt, produced by adding Bacillus bul garlcus" to milk. This generates lac tic acid in tlie stomach of the calves, which acts as a disinfectant, and pre vents the development of the hurt ful bacteria, and at the same time sti mulates the activity of the intestine, probably by producing a ferment that destroys the bacilli which give rise to scour.

AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914

-AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. Within the past ten years the dairy cows of Australia have increased from one million to above two millions. The butter produced in asingle year reach ed atiout 200,000,000 lbs. The annual export is valued at between £3,000,000 and £4,000,000. No rural industry in Australia is more progressive and none pays larger returns to the farmers. The mainstay of dairying is the e.cport market, and easily the largest con sumers of Australian butter abroad are the people of the United Kingdom. It might be thought that the expense of carrying butter from Australia to London would be a serious handicap upon butter-making in the Common wealth. As a matter of fact, however, the Australian dairy farmer, in point of cost, is as close to London as the dairy, farmers of Ireland or Scotland. The actual contract price of shipping butter from either Melbourne or Syd ney to London is %d. per lb.

WARTS ON TEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914

WARTS ON TEATS., Many people fail to get rid of warts because they think it can only be clone with great difficulty, or by tearing the wart bodily away, but this is not the case. When cows are milked twice a day it does not seem to afford much opportunity to get rid of warts. To use any substance of a poisonous nature for the wart is dangerous in many 'ways. When the teats are chapped only, some kind of soothing ointment should be applied, and for this pur pose carbolised vaseline, and other preparations may be procured from the chemist. This will heal the teat up in a short time, and allow the milk ing to be carried on without any dis comfiture to the cow. In the case of warts, when small they can generally be got rid of by touching them with caustic soda. An other simple remedy, and one which in many cases has been found to be successful; rub the wart with vinegar, then while it is still wet dust it with dry carbonate of soda. If this is done after each milking, the warts will gra...

GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914

GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. -No branch of dairy tanning is more important than the feeding arid treat ment of cows; yet none is more gen erally neglected. The direct influence of what the cow eats and drinks upon the milk she produces cannot be too strongly impressed upon the attention of the farmer. Of equal importance are the conditions under which food and drink are taken. If cows are chased by dogs or over-driven, or wor ried by boys on their way to pasture, their milk will surely show the effects in a deterioration of quality. If their shelter in winter or shade in summer is insufficient, or the food is not suf ficiently nutritive, the penalty will in variably be paid in a smaller milk yield. These restrictions are inevi table. One of the greatest mistakes far mers make is in supposing that they may with impunity keep their cows oh "short commons" during the win ter and that they will fatten up in the spring, and milk as well as ever. A cow reduced to meagreness by semi starvatio...

Welcome Evening to Mr and Mrs Bert Thomson. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914

Welcome Evening to Mr and Mrs Bert Thomson. (From our Corop correspondent.) "History repeats itself." We have often heard this well-worn ex- pression, but seldom has it been brought more prominently under our notice than it was last week when the friends of Mr and Mrs Bert Thomson assembled at "Al- mond Grove," the ancestral home of the Thomson family, to bid them welcome to their new home after a most enjoyable honeymoon. It is now close on half a century since the "auld chieftain" first brought his bride to "Almond Grove," and since the first sound of music came from within its spacious walls. What a story of pioneer life that same building could tell if the sorrows of joys, successes and failures, could be recorded. None but those who started and finished with them could ever know. But the "auld chieftain" has continued his march to the great beyond. "Almond Grove" has been demo- lished, and a new home built on the ruins, a new master and mis- tress hold revel within, but the old...

Doubtless the uiosl productive acres lu tbe world, area for area, stc those ou which Mr Luther Bur bank, tbe famous plant-developer, grows his perfected races of spine less cactus. The plaut itself grows to a height of six or eight feet, and its jointed stalks i« flattened slab-like sections that tike the place of leaves, are massed together about as thickly as vegetation can comfortably grow. Tbe new growth of these succulent cactus "leaves" may amount to an annual product of not less than 150 tons, But in addition to this, the pro ductivity of the plaut as a fruit grower is no less remarkable. In blossotniugtiuie the cactus beds are a blaze of color.

Keep the Land in Heart. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 5 May 1914

Keep the Land in Heart. In his recent trips through the Ro chester irrigation settlements, giving advice, encouragment and practical demonstrations to the new - comers, Mr H. Jacob, of Mildura, visited over a hundred holdings and if, as stated in the adage, "imitation is the sin cerest flattery," tie must be gratified at the extent to which his methods are being followed by irrigators. Mr Jacob says that three tilings are essential to success on the laud:—(1) Sow crops, (2) Sow good crops, and.(3) Keep on sow ing good crops. Many settlers made a good start on rich irrigable land but have neglected to put back the essential elements that the crops extract from the soil, which is like a man's banking ac count. If one is always drawing from it and never making deposits it is only a matter of time for either the bank or the soil to announce "no account." After a few years of such treatment the land refuses to grow a payable crop, and farming becomes unprofitable, and in stead of being p...
