CHANGE OF FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

CHANGE OF FOOD. When the chickens have got nicely feathered—say, about five or six weeks old—they will need to be put upon a different food regime, accord ing to the breed. Those that are short of 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 acting as a deter rent upon feather growth. If stimu lative and nourishing foods are given, the blood becomes over-heated, and the skin is apt to become dry and harsh, and when this is the case the feathers do not break nicely.

FINISH IT. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

FINISH IT. When Samuel F. B. Morse, 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 cast of the Far nese Hercules, intending to oiler it to Benjamin West as an example of his work. Being anxious for the favorable opinion of th.e master, lie spent a fort night upon the drawing, and thought he had made it perfect. When Mr. West saw the drawing, he examined it critically, commended it in this and that particular, then handed it back, saying:— "Very well, sir, very well; go on and finish it." "But it is finished," said the young artist. "Oh, no!" said Mr. West. "Look here, 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 liim, and devoted another week to remedy ing them. Then lie carried the draw ing again to the master. Mr. West was evidently much pleased, and lav ished praises upon the work; but at the end lie hand...

FEEDING FOR FEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

FEEDING FOR FEATHER. Feeding poultry for feather is a very important matter, for on the even and fairly quick growth of fea ther depends, in most instances, the quality of plumage, its color, and its marking. Feather growth makes a great strain on a young bird's strength, and it is at 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, hut care must 'be taken that the pigmen tary quality of the food is not injur ious to the color of the bird we are rearing. Thus maize must on no ac count be given to white fowls at this stage, and even red wheat is not with out its dangers. Good oats, with oc casional feeds of white peas and a little boiled linseed, the latter mixed with the soft • food, are excellent. Tight feathered birds, such as game, might with advantage have a little pea-meal mixed with the soft food, and old dried peas are to be recom mended. Color feeding is not satis fa...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

II. A trained nurse had been sent from Lisbon by the evening train, and she watched the sleeping man at this hour. Hugh saw the light in the " window of his bedroom, and it seem ed to say that he still lived. When he rang at the bell, Adele herself an ' swered him, her fleet foot speaking ~ of her expectancy. She had thought it was the doctor who returned, and she did not conceal her disappoint ment when she discovered the Eng lish stranger. Hugh made his apologies gracefully, aiid said that he had come to learn I how Mr. HereBford did. His manner reassured her, and she invited him to come in, explaining that the "ne gro" had gone down to the village and that she was quite alone. A prettier, more helpless creature he had not seen for many a long day —she was just a little school-girl calj ed suddenly to look upon the face of death, he said, and all his pity went out to her. "You have not been at Cintra long, Madam Adele?" She shook her head. "So many days, so many weeks, T have forg...

Father Dominic, the priest, came to dine at the little hotel and brought the Captain of the garrison with him. There had been no change in Heres ford's condition, he said, and the doc tor did not give them any hope o! better tidings. No man could say when the sleeper would awalce— there would hardly be a warning, and life would return capriciously as it had left him. This was all thai could be said, and the three men heard it with much real grief—while to Hugh it was the most pathetic dis appointment he had known in all his life. Of course, the priest had not been informed of the nature of their mis sion, and lie regarded them simply as the sick man's friends who had come across the seas to visit him. Suppos ing an interest which would be natur al, he spoke of Mademoiselle Adele— as they had been calling her—and astonis...

MECHANICAL MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

MECHANICAL MANAGEMENT. So much has 'been said of late about scientific management in manufactur ing establishments that it may be de sirable to look ahead a little and en deavor to see just what departments of productive activity are really in line to be managed according to the methods thus advocated. 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 skilled .mechanic may foe almost wholly eliminated. Repetitive processes, operations which may be described in instruction cards or planned out wholly in ad vance by some oue other than the in dividual by whom they are to be exe cuted, are the very ones from which the element of individual judgment may be almost entirely removed, and therefore are next in line to be turned over to an inanimate and almost en tirely automatic machine. The tilings which the machine cannot do to ad vantage are those which -ire not per formed twice a...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

III. The bruit of death stirred the vil lage, and sent many of its poorest people to the doors of the Rocl? House that night They owed much to the generosity of the rich Ameri can who had dwelt among them so mysteriously, and they paid the last homage with a devotion which was very real. To all these Father Domi nic gave his blessing when he left the house with Vaguna at midnight. "He is dead, my friends—God rest his soul." So truly had the child-wife dreamed—so were lier words justi fied. Down at the hotel where the three strangers waited for the tidings, the doctor excused himself with what fair pleas he could, and said that it was a case of syncope and should have been expected. The terror of the trance might have contributed to it, but the drug had been the active agent. The stricken man would have burst the unseen bonds which robbed him of life, but the effort had culmin ated in death. There could be no doubt of that—the scalpel answered for it beyond all question. He, whose ri...

THE POULTRY YARD. FOOD FOR LAYING HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

THE POULTRY YARD. FOOD FOR LAYING HENS. a jaying nen requires daily about three to four ounces of food, accord ing to size. A bird in a wild state feeds on all kinds of food, many var ieties often in a meal, and seldom two meals alike. Hence we seldom see & sickly wild bird. Poultry, if fed long on one kind of food, will soon contract some disease or other, either directly from organs being thrown out of working or from an enfeebled constitution, whereby they catch any thing that may toe going. Rations for laying hens should be made from bran, pollard, pea-meal, maize-meal, crushed oats, chopped cabbage, chaff ed lucerne, boiled potatoes, and other, vegetables, fresh-cut green bone, lean meant, cut green grass, etc. Any four of these may be combined to gether for a meal, providing bran be in all, and one other meal with one of vegetable and one meat.

WITH DEADLY EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

WITH DEADLY EFFECT. A malign passion may be the effect of a disease; if not, It will tend di rectly to produce that disease (says a physician). Avarice, long indulged, destroys the normal balance of the brain, and at length shrivels it up by concentrating nourishment on the part which is concerned with getting and holding. Outbursts of anger strike at the heart. Many a man has dropped dead in the heat of rage. Moroseness is very effectual in pro ducing disease. If acts specially up on the liver and the digestive organs. The seat of the affections is in the brain. This suffers first; afterwards, in course of time, the organs which it controls. To the vain man one can only ex tend pity or contempt. Writing of vain-glory, Bacon said: "Glorious (i.e., boastful) men are the scorn of wise men, the abomination of fools, the idol of parasites, and the slaves of their own vaunts." But Bacon did not coi. fuse vain-glory with pride in ifs best sense. Money can't buy the loyalty of a dog or the...

Where Mosquitoes Breed. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

Where Mosquitoes Breed. + Science hag definitely fixed upon the mosquito the responsibility for every.cose of malaria and for every case of yellow fever. Even the varieties of mosquito that do not carry the parasites of these di- , seases are recognised as being im portant contributors to the increase of nervous alTections. To, rid our-' selves of this evil it iB necessary first of all to destroy their breed ing grounds. Few people know that large broods have been found to be produced from rain water puddles in hoof-prints by the road side, chicken pans in poultry yards, tho water cup standing on the framo of the grindstone, and even the water that accumulates in gar den furrows, especially where the soil is clayey, may producc mosqui toes in myriads. Mosquitoes have been known to breed in flower vases in which tho water was not fre-' quentlv changed. Every effort to exterminuta>the mosquito in one of tho world's largest hospitals failed until, in a dark corner of an im- j "used ...

Social Notes [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

Social Notes A pretty wedding was celebrated in the Lutheran Church at Pella, when Paul Edmond, third son of Mr. L. Lindner, of Gymbowen, and Susanna Lorentine, eldest daughter of Mr. J. Mackenzie, of Kurnbrunin, were united in the bonds of holy matrimony. The ceremony was performed by Pastor Leske. The church was nicely decorated for the occasion, and was crowded. The bride was given away by her father, and wore a beautiful dress of white china silk, with a long square train, trimmed with fish- net, guipure edging and buttons; also two large true-lovers' knots of heavy silk cord, one at the foot of the skirt and the other on one corner of the train, and a spray of chiffon roses on the other. She wore the customary wreath and veil, and carried a beautiful shower bouquet of white cosmos and asparagus fern, tied with white satin streamers. The bride was attended by Miss A.
