Yeast For Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 12 June 1914
Yeast For Horses.: Experiments have been made i in Austria with the object of, I ascertaining if yeast can replacc , j oats in ihe ration for liorses. j It appears that by replacing half of the rations of oats by yeast, all the nutritious elements, with the exception of fat. were better utilized than with tho full ration of oats. Tho substitution iese utilized. The effect of-yeast ( was better when half the oat ration was substituted than when ihe whole was replaced. In both j case?, however, the utilization ; quotient stood higher than with : the full ratioti of oat". Feeding on yeast caused no change in the droppings. j It is concluded from the experi- i ments that in practice it is j possible to replace with success j at least a part of the oats by yeast. | -"Fertilisers," 24th January,,! 1914.

CALVES AND TUBERCULOSIS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 12 June 1914
CALYES AND TU3ERCUL Ever}one connected with farming is now very keen 0:1 the subjcct of fighting tuberculosis amons our herds. It is pointed out, however, in a contemporary, that most of us are working from the wrong end altoge ther. We aro treating animals after they are attacked, and proposing to have thorn examined and slaughtered, wherens nothing is done at the othor end, as it were, to breed animals free of tuberculosis. It is well enough known now that a calf from a tuwr culous cow may be perfectly, healthy, and nearly always is to st:irt with, and if we feed it 011 healthy milk, ar.d keep it away from tainted sur roundings, in ninety-nine cas:s out of a hundred it would grow up a good and healthy animal. The whole point, therefore, empha sises tbe fact that we should set, about rearing our calves under proper conditions, and that we might in a short time bring forward herds which would be absolutely sound to begin with, and these would take the place of others more or less ta...

Expansion of Country Telephones. VALUABLE IN AGRICULTURAL DISTRICTS. (By C. E. H.) Where tho telephone saves the city business man a walk or ride on a tram, ami valnable time, it relieves the farmer of the trouble, t. me ?ind exp- n-f of harnessing up to deliver a message two or three miles distant. "It saves a multitude of trips to the township, which all take time, and involve incidental ex penses. The farmer has only to think of the time he often wastes - hie own and that of others-in having to go into the township when he cannot be really spared away, particularly in the busy season. This lost time mean* money. How often has every farmer been compelled to face a cold wet day or a blazing hot one, tiring himself and I)is horse in riding or driving to attend to matters be could have aa cosily fixed up over tho telephone from farm, he aaves himself and others many and many a trio. lie simply walks across the room to the telephone, turns the handle, and in a minute or two has done h...
THE GARDEN. ROSE MILDEW. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 12 June 1914
THE GARDEN. 1 ROSK MII.,DE\V. i The .New South Wules Bureau of 1 Microbiology states that rose mil* ? dew is caused by a fundus, Sphaero ] theca. It attacks the leaves, younc ! shoots, ami flower butte, often curl j ing the leaves. On the shoots, calyx, and fruit tho fundus forms thick, felty patches that persist lite into the season, ami here produces the small black bodies containing tlie spores to carry it over till the n.^xr, year. Sometimes the disease occurs in two stages - the first after the leaves are forme.l, and the second when tho young wood has made growth and the flowers h^ve com menced to appear. This is the criti cal period and the fundus prepares to :*arrv. over the winter. Dusting with 'lowers of sulphur "mixed with o^e third of it9 volume of lime chrcks the disease.

EYEBROWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 12 June 1914
EYEBROWS. Eve-brows that arc lighter ill col our than tho hnir are usually a sign of weak constitution, but eye-brows darker than the hair gi-nerallj go with a vigorous mind and body, more especially when they are bushy and tufted. As a general rule the closer the eyebrows lie to tile eyes, the greater are the powers of concentration, though sometimes such brows are as sociated with a suspicious nature. Well-arched eyebrows are a sign of artistic, agreeable temperament, but when they lie far away from the eyes the owner is often most unreliable. If the eyebrows, instead of droop ing at tho end, turn upwards to wards the temples, their possessor is likely to have a strong sense of hu mour, and is likely to make a name as a comedian, or as a humorous nrUnt or wrlt.-r. j in tJuif JimuL-iuunui, cycluusvN that Ricrt ncroHfl t.Iic nofic Imve hvon associated with ,'i passionate and even a murderous temperament.
