SMOKING WHILE MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 8 January 1914

SMOKING WHILE MILKING. Bo not allow dogs or loafers to be round at milking time. If any acci dent occurs by which a pail-full or partly full of milk becomes dirty, do not try to remedy this by straining, but reject, all this milk, and rinse the pail. We remember one day, when on a visit, seeing a milking hand smoking a pipe. Suddenly, he spoke to the cow, and the pipe fell from the man's mouth into the bucket. He made one grab into the milk-bucket, i put the wet pipe into his pocket, and went on milking! Then, what about the ash from a pipe or cigarette fall ing about everywhere? Sack the man or boy who smokes while milking.

Bad Health. One of the most general causes of bad health Is the inefficient action of the kidneys and the liver. It is the function of the kidneys and liver to deal with certain waste poisons which are toeing continuously manufactured In our bodies, and, when the kidneys and liver are inactive or diseased, these waste poisons remain in the sys tem, and cause us to suffer from rheu matism, gout, neuralgia, lumbago, backache, sciatica, blood disorders, anaemia,.. indigestion, billousqesB, jaundice, sick-headache, general debil ity, gravel,'stone and bladder troubles. The reason .that Warner's Safe Cure has proved so: elfectiye. in the above mentioned complaints is that the me dicine heals and restores the: kidneys and liver to lieaHh and activity-when the uric acid &nd other w{iate poisons .are dulj£ expelled from the body through the natural ctiannels. - Warner's Safe Cure is sold by chem ists' and "storekeepers, tootbln the orig inal (5/-) bottles and in the cheaper 'non-alc...

WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 8 January 1914

WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? Why, asks an expert, do we import citrus fruit from Italy? We nave conditions here favorable to the growing of first class fruit. We can produce citrus fruit here equal to what wo receive from Italy, if pro per cultural methods are practised. The soil is here, and the climatic condition. The ' Italian fruit has a, thin skin, the correct flavor, and its keeping quality is world-renowned. Vet some of our locally-produced oran ges will compare favorably with theirs, but to oust the imported ar ticles growers should endeavor to produce more of this class. The thin skinned varieties are just as easily grown as the inferior types, and, as far as flavor is concerned, many of our up-to-date growers produce fruit every bit as good as that imported— better in fact, but the drawback is that we do not get enough, nor does it always combine with the commer cially-essential thin skin.

PIGS FOR BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 8 January 1914

PIGS FOR BACON. ■ Certain modifications in the meth ods of killing and preparing pigs for bacon have been necessary in recent years to meet the demands of the consumer and curer. Among these lias been the movement in favor of less fat and more lean, what is pre ferred now being a tasty, mild-flavor ed, somewhat lean bacon, which is finely streaked with fat and of firm texture. It is occasionally found in dealing with carcases for either pork or ba con that there exists an abnormal condition in the texture of fibre of the flesh. It is soft, yields to pres sure, is flabby, and possesses an un natural greasiness. This class of flesh invariably cures badly, and pro duces inferior bacon. Observation has taught that it is mainly due to the various classes of food being used in improper proportions. Further experience has shown that this influence is more pronounced dur ing winter. Low temperatures exert a change upon the nature of the body fat. Animals exposed to cold are prone to produce...

WHEAT IN BULK. The Premier (Mi1 Watt), in his policy; spoech at lisscndon, said; that the . problem of the bulk s handling of wheat has been one to which farmers have of recent years turned their attention.
