SHORTAGE OF ARMY OFFICERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 15 January 1908

SHORTAGE OF ARMY OFFICERS. Young men are realising that most of the prizes of life go nowadays to suc cessful business' men, while the soldier's If e grows -dally more exacting, without any corresponding growth or remunera tion, and are eschewing, the military' career in favor, of more lucrative and less arduous work in the City.

USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 15 January 1908

VBEFUXr HINTS. A little milk added to the water in which muslins and prints are washed will generally prevent their color from running. ' New stockings should be washed before they are worn. Washing causes the wool to thicken slightly, and thus increases its resisting qualities. Stains on brown leather snoes ana boots may be removed by an application of methylated spirits, followed by wash ing: with soap and water. Then polish with cream In the usual way.

EAR-MARKING ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 22 January 1908

EAS-MARKING AKZMAXS. Here is a system I use on the Oak wood 'doddles' that is easy to keep In mind. In lower part of right ear 1, 2, S, 4.1n upper part of right ear one cut , means 6: In upper part of left ear one cut j means 10; in lower part of left ear one , cut tells the number 20 is on the animal; cuts on lower and upper left ear will carry 30; lower and upper right ear will be 9; so the animal marked that way with 7 cuts will be numbered 39. This means the fewest cuts, and Is easiest to remember. — 3. H., In 'Breeders' Ga zette.'

SKIM MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 22 January 1908

SKXBE vrf.tr. I Why should mflk that contains much cream be accounted the best? Cream la only fat, and we do not rate the food j value of meats solely by the amount of fats they include. Dr. J. A.

An editorial in the 'Hospital' (London), which 'notes Dr. Gilbert's opinion appreciatively, says: — i 'The milk which Is richest In cream is not, therefore,, the most nutritious, for the very simple reason that a rich milk is less easily digested and absorbed than a milk in which the fat percentage is low. As fat as other constituents . are concerned, a milk poor In fat Is as valuable a food as a milk rich In fat The fat percentage, the standard by which milk is judged, is most valu able, while the proportions of the albu minoids, sugars, and salts vary but little In the different samples of...

THE DAIRY. MILK FERMENTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 22 January 1908

WSiS^H^&i .''..' ' : ? jUOQLK ', FERMEKTATIOHS. . It is not unusual to find .persons cen- ? riected wltb;1 dairy work whose eole kn'owiedgeof fermentative processes is limited to the lactic add fermentation— that which produces the souring or ripening of milk or 'cream. Yet. this change affects directly only one' of the constituents In milk — the milk sugar. This Is chemically simply split up by tne microbes Into lactic acid. «nd the process {writes Katheros in 'Farmer and Stopk DPfteder j conunues so lone i» wittuu- | stances and the dairyman allow H to continue.

Tillage and Rotation of Crops. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 22 January 1908

Tillage and Rotation of Crop*. f roiessor w. H. X-ay, of the Ontario Agricultural College, Canada, has re cently issued an important bulletin dealing with the tillage and rotation of crops. He says that the latest lnves ' tlgatlons arouse the suspicion that the apparent 'exhaustion' of soils is due not so much to the depletion of the supply of the stock of plant food, as to the lack of proper sanitary condi tions. Animals enforced to exist In an atmosphere rendered foul by their own exhalations soon cease to thrive. ..., The. plant above ground, he maintains. ' likewise gives off waste products, which If not removed become a menace to its ^safety. Is It not therefore, he argues, natural to expect that from the roots of the plant there are excreta, which, If allowed to accumulate, must threaten Its very existence ' As proper ventila tion is necessary to Insure the health ' of the animal, as diffusion, draughts, .. and winds must bring fresh air to the leaves, so must tillage or other...
