Both Done. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 23 May 1914
Both Done. A married couple were frequently In disagreement on the subject of meals, each usually suggesting a dish for the Sunday dinner which the oth er did not approve. One Saturday the man came home from market wiiu a basket. "You needn't worry about to-mor row's dinner any more, Maria; I've got ii." "And so have 1, George! You were so undecided." ' "Undecided! I told you what 1 wanted." "Well, I mean you 'didn't decide Ub I did. So I bought a goose.s. "Why, so have I! I told you I'd like a goose." "Well, now we are agreed; for once, anyhow." "Yes; and I suppose we'll have. cold: goose and stew for the next 'fort night!" They relapsed into their usual si lence. v "Do you want a few cloves !n the apple sauce with your goose?" the wife asked on Sunday morning. "Your goose, you mean." "No, I don't! It seemed bo absurd to have two geese, in the house, that 1 sentv mine to Aunt Jane.'^ "What! Why, I sent mine to Uncle Joe!" To straighten their hats is the first Impulse of feminine hu...
WALLOWING TANK. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 23 May 1914
WALLOWING TANK. The pleasure that a pig gets out of wallowing In shallow water Ib taken advantage of by some breeders to keep them free from vermin. A tank is made of convenient size. It is ad vlsuble to have it under cover—a shel ter roof of Iron, enough to keep the sun off It, will do'. The tank is par tially filled with water, and the sur face of the water is covered with kero sene oil. When the pigs wallow in this they got sufficient oil on them to destroy vermin. When necessary, the oil and water are replenished, and the tank, of course, requires occasion al cleaning. To prevent the forma tion of mud-holes, the ground sur rounding the tnnlc should be surfacod with concrete.
FEEDING FOR FEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 23 May 1914
: FEEDING FOR FEATHER. Feeding poultry for foather ie n very important matter, for on the oven and fairly quick growth of fea ther depends, In most Instances, tlio quality of plumage, its color, and Its marking. FeaJier growth makes a great strain on a young , blrd'B strength, and it is nt this period that novices have wondered at the appar ent stoppage in the growth of their pet specimens. Good diet of a rather more fatty quality is needed now, but care must 'be taken that the pigmen tary quality of the food Is not injure ious to the color of the bird we aro rearing.-Thus maize must on no ac-: count bo given to white fowls at this stage, and even red wheat is not with out itB dangers. Good oatB, with oc casional feeds of white peas and a little boiled linseed, the latter mixed with the soft food, arc excellent. Tight feathered birds, such as game, might with advantage have a little pea-meal mixed with the aoft food, and old dried peas aro to be recom mended. Color feeding 1b not sa...
VENTILATION IN FOWL HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 23 May 1914
[ventilation in fowl houses. Open your bedroom windows wide, or sleep out on the verandah, and you wake up in the morning feeling like a fighting-cock. You linve had ventila tion. Open your window an inch and your door an inch, and morning will And you sniffling like an old nag with the heaves. A draught is a thin stream of cold air sneaking In through a warmer body of air without mixing. Ventilation is a body of air that, how ever cold, comes in a bunch, and has volume enough to regulate Us own temperature. You might think of these things In regard to your hen house, for a fow. is more susceptible to a draught than any living thing. A fowl's body is a regular little en gine. Did you know that fowls don't swear.' You didn't! Why, they have 110 sweat glands. A fowl'B natural temperature is away above the fovor hoat l all other living creatures, and that makes a draught of air their death warrant.
CHANGE OF FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 23 May 1914
CHANGE OF FOOD. When the chickens have got nicely feathered—say, about five or ' six woekH old—they will need to be put upon a different food regime, accord ing to the breed. Those that are short oC leg and very feathery will need plenty of rice, which, although It does not produce bone, does Influ ence feather considerably, not alto gether because of Its own nutritive qualities, so much as It does by Its ac tion In keeping the blood cool, and thus allowing the other foods given to be assimilated with ease and com fort without the skin become dry and Irritated, and thus noting ns a deter rent upon feather growth. If stimu lative and nourishing foods are given, the blood bccomon over-heated, and the skin Is apt to become dry and harsh, and when this Is the case the feathers do not break nlcoly.
THE PIGGERY. MONEY IN PIGS [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 23 May 1914
THE PIGGERY. MONEY IN PIGS The roaring of pigs was the sub ject of an interesting paper read by .Mr. F. Gamlln recently before the Members of the Otakeho (Now ^Zea land) branch, of the Farmers' Union. Pigs have the reputation of being dirty animals (said Mr. Gamlin), but if properly housed and looked after, are onp of "the most" profitable, as well as the most interesting, products of the farm, and it 1b surprising how few farms have a really well-equipped pig gery. It seems where tho pig Is con cerned "any old' thing will do." The extra profit will soon repay the small expenditure on a good comfortable house. For general requirements I consider that a building 30ft. x 7ft:, with wood floor, divided into four compartments, three for breeding sows, each 6ft. x 7ft." a rail placed, about 1Q Inches out from the wall and the same dlstanco above the floor is necessary to prevent the sow from overlaying .her young.

DAIRYING. POINTS IN CHEESE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 23 May 1914
DAIRYING. P0INY8 IN CHEESE-MAKING. For hard-pressed cheeso, where a ripe milk Is required, It la best to use night and morning's milk mixed. In the cnBe of making cheeso from sweet milk, such as some varieties ol im pressed cheese, It Is often most satis factory to use one meal's milk only. The rennet must oe very carefully added to milk that Is overrlpb, as the acidity In the milk stimulates the ac tion of the rennet, making It work very quickly. Unless treat care Is exercised, the milk will 'be over-stir red and rendered useless tor cheese making. It is most Important* that the curd be of uniform consistence throughout; nttd Uiis Is obtained by Judiciously stirring ill the rennet and taking pre cautions to prevent the temperature of the renneted milk falling. Keep, the vat covered, .and water a little warmer than' the milk In the vat jacket. Wltoy from cheese making may be set In tanks, and tho cream skimmed i off the nojit day, before using the whey for pig-feeding. Whey cream ca...
FINISH IT. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 23 May 1914
FINISH IT. When Samuel P. B. MorBe, after wards famous as the inventor of the electric telegraph, was a young paint er studying in London, he made a drawing from a small caBt of the Far nose Hercules, intending to offer it to Benjamin West as an example of his work. Being anxious for the favorable opinion of the master, he Bpent a fort night upon the drawing, and thought he had made it perfect. When Mr. West saw the drawing, lie examined it critically, commended it in this and that particular, then handed it back, saying:— "Very well, Bir, very well; go on and flnish It." "But It Is fluished," said the young artist. "Oh, no!" said Mr. West. "Look hero, and here, and here," and he put his finger upon various unfinished places. • Mr. Morse saw the defects, now that they were pointed out to- him, and devoted another week to remedy ing them. Then he carried'the draw ing again to the master. Mr." West was evidently much pleased, and lav ished praisos upon the work; but at the end he hand...

MECHANICAL MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 23 May 1914
MECHANICAL MANAGEMENT. So much lias been said of Into about scientific management in manufactur ing establishments that It may bo de sirable to look ahead a little and en deavor to see just what departments of productive activity are really in line to bo managed according to the methods thus udvocated. In general, it seems as if the lines of work capa ble of such organisation and conduct are those from which, in the course of a comparatively short time, :he ikiiled mechanic may bo almost wholly eliminated. Repetitive processes, operationo which may be describod in instruction cards or planned out wholly In ad vance by some one other than the in dividual by whom they are to be exe cuted, are the vory ones from which the element of individual judgment may be almost entirely removed, nmJ therefore are next in line to be turned over to an inanimate and alnnst en tirely automatic machine.
