DREAMS AND DREAMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
DREAMS AND DREAMERS. There are stt'.l, even in this ealight ened age, a number of an;i:rsti',ius individuals who attach a meaning-to certain dreams, o.t. woo will Eagerly refer to books on the st'bject, in order that they may ascertain thle purport of some nocturnal reverie that is prob aLly the outcoma of a ibad digestion. If the sleep be .ound, the digestive and other organs >nre in action, and the sleeper will bass a perfectly un disturbed night. If, howeve'-, any of the Ibodily functions are at all out of order, and more especially the diges tion, the nervous system will be af fected, and an imperfect conscious ness will be the result. A dream is nothing more or less than an imperfectly formed thought, eaused mostly .by the individual not being at the time alive to the sur roundings; and the imagination, not being under control, will wandj.r un checked by circumstances, and the dreamer is under the impression that the ideas that flit through the brain are things 'which are ac...
KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. Used in water as a daily gargle, borax keeps the throat healthy. Used in water for cleansing the teeth it "disinfects" them and prevents their decaying. In wet weather clean the windows with chamois leather in the usual way, then sprinkle a little flour on the pol ishing duster. The result will be an easy and a brilliant polish. Should the inkpot be accidentally upset on tablecloth or carpet, pour a little cold water over it at once. The ink will float on the water, and when, cloth or carpet is rubbed dry nu stain will show. To prevent inferior potatoes from appearing watery when cooked, scrub, then score the skin lightly, length ways and across, all the way round, Boil in salted water. They will then be dry and floury. Before using a new saucepan al ways fill it with water. If not an en amelled one, add a lump of soda and potato peelings and let it boil for some hours. Then wash out thor oughly, and all danger of poisoning from the tinned lining will be pre vented...
GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
r ways. SGOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. SThe dairy cow is one of the best ,solutions for the problem of the high cost of living. .She not only furnishes cheap, wholesome, and nourishing foods, in the products of the dairy, but the manure, if saved and properly used on the land, will accelerate larger crops and more pro fits per acre. But we must have good herds. Probably in no other industry con nected with the soil is there more ne nessity for a complete reorganisation of the methods of working than in dairying. Although we have an in comparable climdte for dairying the business is unsound at its base through the use of any kind of ani mal in the shape of a cow. No sane man would think of sowing the same ,. kind of seed for a grain crop year after year when he found by practi 1 seed was less than one-half what it Scal test that the yield from that seed was less than one-half what it ) should be. Yet men will go on milk Sing and rearing calves for future use Sfrom cows which do not actually ...
The Hint That Didn't. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
The Hint That Didn't. For ten long but blissful years they had walked along the path of love; but as yet the love-sick youth had never mentioned about their getting married. Courtship is very charm ing, but when there does not seem to be altar rails at the end. of it girls naturally begin to lose interest in the game. Anyhow, Jane thought it time that the marriage day was fixed, so she threw out a gentle hint to her lover by way of encouraging him. Encour agement, she thought, was all the dear fellow wanted. "Nathaniel," she whispered, coyly. "they're saying we're going to be married soon." "Are they, though?" answered the stolid swain. "What a joke it'll be on them when they find out we ain't." Customer: This is the first time I've had a real tender Obit of steak in this place. Waiter: Good heavens! I've given you the fboss's steak! Women can iblight a man's life with a smile._

SELECTING THE MILK COW. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
SELECTING THE MILK COW. Nearly every good milk cow pos sesses certain points of conformation which indicate her milking qualities. The first important point is that she shall show a lean or bony form, with a sharp prominent backbone,- ribs wide apart, sharp withers and incurv ing thighs. This indicates "dairy temperament," or, in other words, that she will turn her feed into milk instead of beef. Next she will have a long, deep bar rel, well sprung ribs, broad muzzle, and a strong jaw, these points indica' ing capacity for consuming larger amounts of feed. Third, she will show a hardy con stitution. which is indicated by a large heart girth, a deep chest, large open nostrils, and a large wind pipe and lung capacity. Fourth, a good dairy cow should have an udder of good size running well forward and hung up well be hind. The region of the pelvis or the hips is wide, as is also the space be tween the thighs as viewed from be hind, giving ample room for a large udder. A large udder is ...
THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. As an intance of the numbers of bacteria the common fly can carry, the following figures given by Pro fessor Easton may be cited: - He caught 100 flies in a kitchen, put them in a pint of sterilised water and rinsed them about, and then examined the water, and found that he had iais ed such a number of bacteria off that each fly averaged over 300,000. He next caught a similar number in the cow barn, and they averaged over 800,000 each, another 100 in the pig pen, and they averaged over 1,000,000 each. It may be said that when one goes into a -factory or house and finds inany flies, one is immediately justi fled-in condemning the sanitary sur rcundings of such premises. One can appreciate the fact that in factories where flies abound it is next to Im possible to keep them out of the milk, and the seeding of the milk by the bacteria which they carry must be very appreciable. The evil deeds of the fly need emphasising, as too many of us seem to think, the fly a ne...
CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
e CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. The value of the cabbage as a fed 3 for dairy cows is fairly generall known. It is a succulent feed, highly relished by cows, is an e: cellent milk producer, and is rich i protein. But whilst its value is irn lised, many dairy farmers have rooted obection to it on account c its liability to impart an undesirabi flavor to milk and butter. This que: tion is dealt with by a writer in recent issue of "Hoard's Dairyman. After observing that the only objet tion to feeding cabbage to mile t cows is the flavor imparted to tb 1 milk, he proceeds to point out tha U when fed under certain condition, this objectionable feature can b avoided. One of the first precaution 1 to observe is to keep the cabbag away from the shed at milking time r Milk absorbs odors very quickl indeed, and if the cabbage odors ar near the milk it will be tainted. Al other precaution to observe' is n( to feed the cows just before milking any high-flavored feed, in fact-tu nips for example-an ho...
MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
MORE INTERES'; IN GOOD COWS. The experience already gained in places where associations have been erganised shows that with the weed ing out of the unprofitable cow: comes: an -interest in better cows and in the greater care of the cows, There is a tendency to make greater discrimination in price between good and poor animals. The introduction of better cows per medium of the testing procer,: creates a desire "for more of them, Thus'a larger number of cows , ithi high yielding capacity reduces the :odt of collecting milk and cream in a given territory. The increased interest in Jairying stimulates an interest in pure-bred itock. Instances are given where ctur ng the first year's existence of a iairy-testing association only one nan owned a pure-bred dairy bull; twenty .wo such bulls were found among the lerds the following 'year. While no pure-bred cows at all we-e owned .he first year, twenty-one were bought luring the second year. This it terest steadily increased, and during the ...
DAIRYING. COWS AND FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 17 April 1914
DAIRYING. COWS AND FERTILITY. On all pastures where cows and young stock have been grazed for many years without special means being taken to restore the loss of phosphates; on all pastures abound ing in coarse .grass and weeds on damp, rushy grounds, and on 'clay land pastures, an application of 5 cwt. per acra will be found to p.o duce satisfactory result during the first and subsequeht. seasons. The remarkable appearance" of clover which follows closely upon such an application is only to be accounted for by the stimulus which phospihaic and calcic manures give to this class of plants. White clover thirws out suckers and is of a creepicg natars, from which it derives it. botanical name of repens. That the plant e-. isted, in a weak and sparc condition previously cannot bo douitel, lbut a desning of phosphate of lime causes an unwonted development and vigor ous growth of both wiltat clover- a?ii other leguminous plants.
