FRUGALITY OVERDONE. Old Jasper Grim could never see The dark cloud's silver lining; In fact, he always seemed to bo ' Complaining and repining. lie always looked for rainy days When fair mild winds were blowing; He hunted out the lonely ways In which no crowds were going. Thero was no joy for Jaspor Grim, No glad anticipation, Tho world, indeed, appeared to him A piaco of tribulation.. He pinched and saved and skimped and so His fortune kept t>n gaining; Ho thought of -wild winds that would blow, And days when 'twould ho raining. He's now reposing in his tomb, A monument they've bought him, But I would not have borne his gloom For all his money got him. Ho was a young man-a candidato for an agricultural constituency-and he was sketching in glowing colors to the audience of rural voters the happv life tho laborer would lend under an administration of tho propagation of sweetness and light. "We have not yet three acres and a cow, but it will come. The promised sanatorias are still ...

CRUSHING REBUKE. In the e;trlv days of railway's, oti some of the linos smoking -was not al lowed at all. cither in the trains or on the station buildings. One day a station-master of a large station, a man noted for his conceit and^ pomposity, descried a gentleman pacing tlio platform with a cigar in his mouth.

. THE POULTRY YARD ADVANTAGES OF EARLY MOULTING. Tliosc who have just commenced poultry keeping and have some last year's birds would do well to realise what those with experience have learnt, that a hen which moults be fore tho winter Is more valuable than a pullet, because she lays large eggs, and generally quRo as many of them. It is wise to induce hens to moult be foro the winter wherever it can he arranged. "When tho hens Bhed their feathers in tho warm weather it is a saving of over 30 per cent., as tho feathers grow so much more quickly when the weather is warm; not only that, but the birds are ready for the winter work, and it is not as diillcult to get them on to lay then as U la when they have moulted late aud have conse quently felt tho strain more. Thoso poultry keepers who keep their fowls especially for producing eggs for tho table and markets should got their birds in order for laying. Some people have an idea that it is too stimulating and leaves tho bird weak, but t...

All feeders who have tried It pronounce the benefits unmistakable, and re sults most gratifying.

THE AMATEUR'S NEED OF ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 30 January 1914

THE AMATEUR'S NEED OF ADVICE. Amateur poultry-keepers must not expect to succeed and find everything to go on smoothly at the first with out the aid o£ advice from somo ex perienced person. This needs to be clearly understood. There Is a great deal o£ knowledge to be acquired In the work o£ poultry-keeping, and there is no one who knows so much that cannot still learn more, even af ter having had years of practical ex perience. Fanciers of wide experience are generally glad of hints from oth ers as to their ways and methods, and ate ready and. frilling still to learn. Beginners, however, are often too self reliant, and will neither ask for ad vice nor yet take It if It Is offered freely. The result is they mako many blunders often before they have well begun, and thus blight their prospects ot success completely. "A good beginning Is half the bat tle." But to be self-reliant and plunge hastily Into the work without thought and care at the start Is only to pave the way to failure. Le...

Give this as It is, followed by a little warm gruel. Walk the horse about to prevent his rolling, rub the belly with a wis'p, and, if necessary, re peat the drench in two hours, but not more than two doses should be given. Understand that It is not claimed that this recipe is better than any other.

FOR THE FARMER. FARMYARD MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 30 January 1914

POR THE FARMER. FARMYARD MANURE. | * Farmyard# manure consists ot the ?olid and liquid excrements of nnl j mals and the litter 'with which those substances are mixed and absorbed. Its 'value for fertilising purposes de pends to a great extent upon the way In which-it Is handled In the-dung stead. In this respect (says a'writer in an English farm journal) its man agement too often leaves much to be desired, and, taking the country all through, enormous quantities of valu able plant nourishment are lost. The atmosphere is the chief agent which produces the decomposition of the ammonia In the manure and causes It to escape, and therefore the air must be shut out of the manure heap as much as possible. The freer the air can penetrate the heap the more rapid is the decomposition and consequent loss of ammonia; indeed, it may be said that a rational treat ment of the manure does not exist un less the heap Is tightly compacted. "Keep it moist and tread it tight, And it will well your care ...
