CANADIAN DAIRY NOTES. Canadian dairying i» in a state of confusion and change. It it a safe guess that not one dairy farmer in a dozen would commit, himself to a definite pre diction of just what line of dairying he will be following next. Loss than a decade a*o, tho cheese factories of East ern Ontario had things all their own wnv in that part of the country. In tho western part of Ontario aud in Quebec provinco cheese factories and creameries conducted a friendly rivalry for the dairy former's capital, but nei ther one was able to ofTer sufficient in ducements to tho fanner to seriously injure the business of tho other. To-dav tho man who has iuvetsed hi&lt; nil in a chees-? factory or creamery is "up aga'mst it'' good and hard. We are puling through a wonderful era of industrial development.

A CHINESE INCUBATOR. HOW HENS' AND DUCKS' EGGS ARE HATCHED UNDER RICE. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 4 September 1914
A CHINESE INCUBATOR. HOW HENS' AND DUCKS' EGGS ARE HATCHED UNDER RICE. In an Amcricau consular report pub lished is described an ingenious method by which Chines© in the district adja cent to Amoy hatch both hen's and ducks' eggs. The breeder first takes & quantity of unhusked rice and roasts it, cooling it down by fanning or by allowing the wind to blow through until it is luke warm. He then spreads a three-inch layer of the rice in a wooden tub, and places about 100 eggs thereon; another layer of rice, the second and subsequent layers being about two inches in thick* ness, is spread over the «ggs. Each tub has six layers of rica and five layers of eggs, so that there are 500 eggs vin each tub. The rice is heated once every twenty-four hours, the eggs being taken out at such times. When the eggs are again put in the rico the bottom layer is placed on top and each of the other layers one row lower down, while the eggs previously in the centre of the tub are placed at the edg...

They had greatly feared that the War, com ing on the top of the devastating drought, would have s|>elt frtiluri for tliis rather adventurous under taking. As it happened, however, the affair went off in first-rate style. Ttie attendance of men was probab ly as large as that of most of the annual meetings, and there were many visitors from Kchuea and Kcrang, not to mention smaller towns. And all appeared to thoroughly enjoy themselves. And well they might; for all the con ditions were perfect. The picnic arrangements were comparatively weak, however, perhaps because the season was a little too near the nipping winds of winter to offer any irresistible attraction in that direction. At any rate, there was a noticeable falling off in the un usually large attendance of ladies. There was a represent...
