DAIRYING SUGGESTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
DAIRYING SUGGESTIONS. The following suggestions are the experience of Mr. W. M. Rider, of the Winona Agricultural College, U.S.A.: Test your herd for economic produc tion. Weigh milk from each cow night and morning, one day each month. Take samples of each milking and test it for butter fat. Knowing the milk'and fat given in one day, use these figures as an aver age clay's production for the current month, and, by multiplying the milk and fat produced 'by the number of days in the month, you obtain the total amount of milk and butter fat (in ■poundsJ produced for one month. Weigh feed fed on day of test, and from tue cost of each feed figure the cost of feed fed each cow on day of test. From I he daily cost of feed per cow, compute the cost of her feed for one month. If the milk is sold as milk, compute the value of each cow's milk for the month at the market price received. Knowing the money value of each cow's milk for the month, and the cost « of her feed, one can find the net va...
A BERESFORD IN WAR-TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
A BERESFORD IN WAR-TIME. The Beresfords have all been fa tuous for the courage that 'borders ou recklessness. Lord William Beres t'ord served in the Zulu War in 1S79, winning the V.C., and in- his book, "Campaigns of a' War Correspondent," Air. Melton Prior relates some striking stories of him: — In the retreat Lord William Beres t'ord, turning around, saw the four legs of_ a -white horse kicking in the air, Realising at once that it beloiigecT'to one of our men, he rode straight for it, and found that the horse had been shot and that the rider had fallen half stunned. "Get up!" Lord William said to the man, but he seemed to dazed to an swer; whereupon Lord William said, "If you don't got up at once 1 will jump down and punch yourxhead!" —at which the man did rise slowly. Lord William succeeded in helping him on to the horse behind him; once mounted, the man clutched Beresford around the waist, and so they gallop ed off. All the time this was taking place the Zulus were firing from ...
Avoiding Eye-Strain. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
Avoiding Eye-Strain. Eye-strain is said to be largely a defect of civilisation. To counteract it, children should he encouraged to use their eyes at long range. A teacher who has a surprisingly small amount of eye-strain among her pupils attri butes it to her practice of making the scholars drop their work at the end ol' each hour and look out of the win dow. There is a contest as to who cao see the farthest. This rests and trains the eyes and teaches observa tion. A woman who does fine sewing for her living found her eyes strained and weak. She was advised to drop her sewing every half-hour and look for v minute into space. Relief was quick, and the eye-strain disappeared. Short-sighted people who hold then book or work close will ease eye strain and lengthen their vision if they frequently remove their glasses end look at some object on the hori zon. The long-distance training will not, however, relieve eye-strain that comes from astigmatism, reckless dis regard of the eyes, or fr...
Impure Air and Scrofula. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
Impure Air and Scrofula. The atmosphere of all rooms should oe frequently renewed by proper ven tilation. The best method of accom plishing this has been for many years a subject closely studied by sanitar ians. In rooms, and especially in bed rooms, the fireplace should always be iel't unclosed. The windows should be pulled down from the top, and up from the bottom. All rooms, and es pecially sleeping apartments, should je weil aired during the day. Impure air in bedrooms is oonsiderd by emin ent medical authorities to be one of che most potent causes of consumption and scrofula. A well-luiown French physician who has devoted much at tention to studies of this nature says: "It will often be found, on examina tion, that scrofulous diseases are caused by vitiated air, and it is not always necssary that there should have been a prolonged stay in such an atmosphere. Only a few hours each day is suflicient; and a person may live in a most healthy district, pass the greater part of each ...
HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. Late or heavy suppers are a com mon cause of insomnia, especiqj^ that l'orm of it in which people fall into a heavy sleep, only to awake with a start an hour or two later and find themselves unable to sleep again until early morning perhaps. Digestion comes almost to a (lead stop during sleep, so that sufficient time should be allowed for the last meal to be dis posed of before the hour for retiring. This interval should be two hours at least, which meaixs that half-past eight is as a rule late enough for the evening meal. In any case, the food which is taken then ought to be of a light nature, and not include poVk, cold meat, or any other article of diet which is slow of digestion. Coffee and strong tea are unsuitable at this .lour, as they tend to cause sleep lessness. Cocoa, made with water, is i much better beverage for use with J o evening meal or after it.

LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
[LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER, j Mr. S. P. Keys, writing in "Hoard's Dairyman," says:—When we come to the question of the upkeep of the fer tility of our farms, we find that we face quite a serious problem. From what source are we to restore the humus, or vegetable matter, that is being rapidly exhausted by continu* ous cropping? Manures and commercial fertilisers, while valuable, are not always obtain able. Farmers waste the barnyard manure, and feel that they cannot af ford to buy commercial fertilisers. To fill the bill there must be something within easy access of every farm. The answer to this is—green manures. The king of legumes used in green manuring is lucerne. Not only does it answer every requirement of a green manure, but is is also one of the most valuable of the standard crops. You may be cropping a given piece of land to lucerne, obtaining each year from five to seven cuttings, and at the same time you have at hand the means of restoring the fertility of the soil upon w...
IN FANNY BURNEY'S GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
IN FANNY BURNEY'S GARDEN. An amusing account of the horti cultural pursuits—ami ineptitude—of General U'Arblay, the French emigre who became Fanny Burney's hus band, is given in an article in the ••Cornhill" by tiir Henry Lucy:—■ The young couple began their mar ried lire in apartments in a farm house on the summit of Bagden lull, i'hence they moved to a somewhat larger cottage at Bookham. Finally, when "Camilla" proved a financial .success, they built themselves a iiouse on Lhe outskirts oi Norbury r"ai'k, known during. their residence as'"Camilla Cottage. ' From the tirst, iM. d'Arblay, con scious of inadequacy to bear his fair | share in the wherewithal for meeting «ue cost of the little household, de veloped a fearsome frenzy for gar dening. Pursuit of the vocation in volved him in delightfully ludicrous dilemmas. Writing under date April, ju"U4, from the cottage at Bookham, the young wife says: — "Think of our horticultural shock i iast week when Mrs. Bailey, our land lady, ent...
NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. Why is it that a newly-engaged girl I is a thorn in the flesh to all her dis engaged sister women? ' To begin with—observes a lady correspondent (who is not newly-en gaged)—she is odiously sorry for you because you don't happen to be a betrothed person also. You may have heaps of chances, may know that you are really and truly quite nice, but the most ordinary girl who ever seiz I ed upon her first proposal will patron ise you until you feel almost ready to accept anyone. When she isn't irritating you, the newly-engaged girl is rather funny— over the ring more especially. This sacred object for a few weeks appar ently occupies the place of sun, moon, stars and all light. If it can be said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasion. And then, in other ways, she is so hopelessly selfish. But perhaps the personal vanity of the engaged girl enrages her femin ine acquaintances more than any of her numerous failings. To have to stand by and behold an insignifican...

The Heart of a Girl By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Moneylender," "12a QuiHry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER ill.—Continued. Queenie drew back a pace as Mi chael Thorne stepped into the gas-lit passage without invitation. He was much better dressed than when he quitted the house four months back. He was looking several rears older. Perhaps it was the stress jind strain of getting the better of his fellow-gamblers in the copper market, where fortunes were made and men went smash in a day. He had lost ilesh, and the protrusion of his pow erful lower jaw seemed more pro nounced, his eyes deper set and their expression more vague, more secret ive. He looked a vulgarian still. No one could have called him good-look ing, this young-old man, who a few months back was merely regarded as a punctual, plodding clerk. Yet pretty, nineteen-year-old Beryl Price wor shipped him hopelessly—with the characteristic hopelessness of nine teen. Dogged strength was perhaps the Ee...

DAIRYING. WHY WASH THE UDDER? [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
DAIRYING. WHY WASH THE UDDER? i nere are many points In clean dairying which, if observed, closely, would obviate milk- contamination, and consequent complaints about in ferior cream and butter. Here are some points of advice: Washing the cow's udder is fre quently necessary. Should the pad dock in which" the cows have been accustomed to lie down during the night be not clean—very few are clean enough—then the udders should be washed before milking. Cows for aging in unclean places, especially during drought, render washing their udders imperative. The cow-yard is usually muddy in some degree during wet weather. As the co.w walks to and from the ball she generally makes a beaten- parti, and when wet this track becomes a continuous manure track. The cow kicks up 011 to the udder pieces of this contaminated soil, and the udder is thus unclean wlifn milking time Begins. The milker'.? hands are often a fruitful source of milk contamination during the operation of mi'king. The damp, dirt...
FOR THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
FOR THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. II 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 fjrom 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 ordinary 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 hens roost in trees. The sleeping quarters of fowls should be merely draught-proof shelters from extremes of weather and, if winter eggs be de sired, they should have dry scratch ing quarters for bad weather. Always have your poultry houses open to the north.
Mutual Secrets. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
Mutual Secrets. "I didn't want- to come here in the first •place," confided the first guest at the expensive hotel in a well-known winter holiday resort on the South Coast. "No more did I," replied the second; "but my wife insisted on my coming/' "So did mine," said the first. "She said we had to come just (because the Smithsons were coming, although I simply told her we could not afford the expense." "And that's- what I said," explained the second, ''but my wife said we had to come because the Brownsons were coming." "Why, look here, my name is Brownson." "And mine is Smithson." Then the two men shook one an other warmly by the hand. Each high achievement is .1 sign and token of the whole nature's pos sibility. What a piece of the man was for that shining moment it is the duty of the whole man to be always. He is the truly courageous man who never desponds.
FATTENING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
FATTENING POULTRY. The best and, at the same time, most economical method of 1'attemng all kinds of poultry is to keep them m conliuement lor a short time before they are required tor table. A good deal of judgment, however, has to. be exercised in deciding the length of time this confinement is to last, for if overdone, even in the slightest de gree, the birds rapidly lose flesh and go back in condition. Strange as it may seem, once this begins, no amount of feeding will restore either their weight or condition till after they have regained their liberty again. For this reason the poultry must be confined for too long a period before they are required.
IRON FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
IRON FOR FOWLS. Iron is present in the fowl's body; part of tins iron is in an organised form in tlie red corpuscles of the blood. The total amount 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 insuliiciently fed fowls have pale yolks. The coloring of the yolu is due to pigments, and, possibly, to the phospliolipine 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 richiy-colored yolks. Anaemic fowls may be easily treated by administer ing to each live 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. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 9 January 1914
DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHICK. Present-day poultry science gives | these facts in tlie development of the chick:— Twelve hours after incubation has begun the lineaments of the head and body are discovered. Close observa tion has found uie heart to 'beat ,y the close of the day. At the end of 48 hours two vesicles of blood are distinguished, pulsations of which are visible. At the fiftieth hour an auricle of the heart appears. At the end of 70 hours undistinguished wings, and on the head two bubbles for the brain, one for the bill, and two oth ers for the fore-part and the hinder part of the head. The liver appears towards the fifth day. At the end of 131 hours the first voluntary motion is observed. Beven hours later the lungs and stomach become visible, and the intestines, the loins, and the upper jaw are seen at the end of 142 hours. The seventh day the brain, | which is slimy, begins to have some i consistence. At. the 190th hour of > incubation the bill opens, and the fiesh appear...
