HOUSING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

HOUSING POULTRY. . If all. poultry liouses of the closed in type had an end or one side of them knocked out, disease would dim inish by one-half, and the profits from the birds compelled to roost in them would, probably, be doubled. It is impossible to conceive anything more insanitary and conducive to disease than the oi'dinary. type of fowlhouse one sees in the country. It is cramp ed, dark and without any ventilation, except the many draughty cracks. It is little wonder that going from the foetid atmosphere into often an un sheltered yard the birds contract colds, and soon become a prey to dis ease. It were far better to let the -liens roost in trees. The sleeping quarters of fowls should be merely draught-proof shelters from extremes of weather and, ifihvinter eggs be de sired, they should have dry scratch ing quarters for bad weather. Always have your poultry houses open to the north. According to a Paris paper, "Seventy per cent, of the French people live in one room." But it ...

IRON FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

IRON FOR FOWLS. Iron is present in the fowl's body; part of this iron is in an organised form, in the red corpuscles of the blood: The total amoiybt of iron is small; but nevertheless, it is of great importance, and a deficiency re sults in anaemia. One frequently finds that eggs laid by insufficiently fed fowls have pale yolks. The coloring of the yolk is due to pigments, and, possibly, to the phospholipin.e termed lecithin.. Iron, in an organised form, is found in the ash of the egg. Vegetable foods, es pecially clover and lucerne, are rich in minerals, and their use results in richly-colored yolks. Anaemic fowls may be easily treated by administer ing to each five drops of perchloride of iron in a teaspoon of well-sweeten ed milk. This is a very cheap tonic, and is better in many ways than the ordinary sulphate of iron (copperas).

DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHICK. Present-day poultry science gives these facts in the development of the chick: [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHICK. Present-day poultry science gives these facts in the development of the chick:— • Twelve hours after incubation lias I begun the lineaments of the head and body are discovered.

Anonymous. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

Anonymous. A well-known author, on leaving his house one morning, forgot a let ter that he had intended to post.

SOME SALUTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

SO; ME SALUTATIONS, . The, prostration and the.ealaa,!*}, saJ utatiohs that many Orientals use. are only more pronounced forms or the bow. So there is a connection between the embrace, so common in civilised countries, 'and the greeting1 of a mem ber of the Koiari tribe of British New Guinea, who, in saluting a missionary, placed one arm nbou this neck stroked him under the chin. , Among the Masai and the Ukerewe it is a mark of respect to greet .an ac quaintance or. a-stranger by spitting at him. Almost as strange is the cus tom ascribed to the rIib.etai.is of putting out tho tongue by way of salutation. Rubbing noses is quite common; the Burmese aiid many tribes of Eskimos. Laplanders, and Malays do so. Stranger than any of these customs is the -weeping salutation that has been observed <imoug Central South Amer ican Indians. This form of greeting occurs too in the Andaman Islands, New Zealand, and Polynesia. A Por tuguese explorer thus describes the cus tem as.he saw i...

IF WE KNEW. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

IF WE KNEW. Could we but draw back the curtains That surround each other's lives, See their naked heart .and spirit. Know what spur the action gives; Often we should find it better, Purer than we judge we should— We should love each other better, If we only understood. Could we judge all deeds by motives, - See the good and bad within,. Often we should love the sinner. All the while we loathe the sin. Could we know the powers working To overthrow integrity, We should judge each other's errors With more patient charity. If we knew the care and trials, Knew the effort all in vain, And the bitter disappointment. Understood the loss and gain; . Would the grim external roughness Seem, I wonder, just the same? Would we help where now we hind or T Would we pity where we blame? Ah! we judge each other harshly. Knowing not life's hidden force; Knowing not the fount of action Is less turbid at its source. Seeing not amid'the evil All the golden grains of good; Oh! we'd love each other better,...

Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 22 January 1914

Sporting. The Wodonga race meeting on Boxing Day resulted in a profit of ^210, which is ,£50 more than any previous meeting. | A Beechworth paper, referring to the loss on the New Year's Day race I meeting, says it is due to other ! towns holding meetings on the same day. Well, haven't they as much i right as Beechworth to hold meet ings ? But Beechworth people seem to think no other town in their dis trict should run counter to them, aud that they should have every holiday to themselves. A man was charged at Caulfield with having p.'ayed the Indian dart game, which was alleged to be a game of chance. Dr Cole, P.M., held that there was no evidence of cheating or fraud, and dismissed the case. Mr Price, the badicapper at the Albury L.V. race meeting, gauged the form of Lady Skopos and Safe shot to a nicety. On the first day in the L.V. Handicap (won by Heatherton) Lady Skopos (8.32) and Safeshot (7.11) dead-heated for second place. On the second day, over the same distance (one mile)...

A Police Blunder. The man Griffiths, who was ar rested at Cobungra as being identi cal with John Henry Sparks and was discharged, returned to Omeo on 6th inst, and expressed himself as being extremely indignant at the manner in which he had been treated. He said that when he got to Melbourne a number of warders were brought to identify him, and n.ot one of them could say that ' he . bore any resemblance | to the escaped man. Detective I Potter, the finger print expert, I said Griffiths was no mor;; like Sparks than he himself was. There were certain marks on the body of Sparks which should have left no doubt as a means of indeutificatiou, and he (Griffiths) had not one of them.
