The* Docdly Hatpin. "War against tho hatpin point is now boing waged in Moscow. It was pro voked by two accidents which recently oeenrrod in consequence of tho abuse of this formidable article of toilet, and now tho habit of carrying audi clangor ous weapons unsheathed is loudly rc sontod by tho general public. A few days ago, after a concert di rected by Nikisch, the audience was, as usual, making a hurried exit.

In a Not) Light, Discontent or satisfaction with an object; often depends^ entirely on tho way in which it is regarded.

THE DAIRY. SALT FOR CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 13 March 1908
THE DAIRY. SALT FOB CATTLE. It is evident that dairymen haVo not fully realised the Importance of giving their cows access to .salt, In lta' con nection' some very interesting experi ments have recently been made by PVo fensor Babcock, of. milk-testing fame. When salt .was. absolutely withheld, the effect was detected In some cows from two to three weeks, but Individual mem bers of the herd went or* for ttyo.best part of a year without showing any 111 effects. Sooner or later, however-and generally sooner-the animals developed q 'state of low vitality, ending In sudr den and complete breakdown, though re covery would bo rapid when salt was again given. The effects .were most noticeable at calving tlmo, or immedi ately afterwards. In general, the cows giving the largest amount of milk were the first to show signs of distress, while there was less trouble when the ani mals were on the pasture than In the cow-shed. Dry cows suffered very little, and the same applies to .bullocks and st...

The Downfall of Boaiiiy. __N0 LONGER WANTED IN WOMEN, If sonio studont of history a century or two from now, writes a Fronchman on the "Downfall of Beauty," should look through our nowspapors, ho would find proof that wo of to-day woro very concorned about tho boauty of women. He would havo reason to boliovo that wo woro strong admirers of fominino beauty, and that if we had possessed a now Helen wo would not havo hesi tatod to'rush into a second Trojan "War. This would bo a grave error, a proof that tho papers do not always roflect tho soul of thoir epoch. No timo has been as indifferent to tho beauty of wo men as tho present. In spite of tho newspapers and magazines, no natiqn or city really thinks of fominino beau ty. And, what is more surprishig still, no city cares los^ for the boauty of women than Paris, no peoplo less than tho Fronch. That much for popular tasto I In tho various Parisian "tnondos," oven the richost and most brilliant, thoro is tho same indifference. Far from ...

Treatment for Hoven. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 13 March 1908
Treatment for Hoven. A dairy farm.er some t)me ago nati tin experience with blown cows wnich] should serve him In good stead. AHomj a score of his milking cows got upr-n^ his green lucerne patch, and when diy-* covered were very much blown. They . were immediately hailed,, and the owner prepared a drcnch. ttofore he treated the cows an old drover happened along, who had treated many bullocks for hoven years previously, and hfs method was tried with success. No drcnch or knife was required. Of course, in cases where the trouble had existed for a longer time the treatment may not have pr wed so beneficial. In this case the cows were in ti very blown condition, tossing their heads, very feverish, with their mouths tightly closed. Many were staggering. The method adopted was as follows; - Cut pieces oC rounded wood (broom handle is ideal) in lengths sufficient to leave an inch or so on each side of t.v* mouth, when the stick is placed betwce.i the jaws.

mm AH0 FiGLD. Stooklng "by Macliincry. rA Canadian,-James Caldcr by name, Is, according to o Canadian contempo rary, the Inventor of what lie claims to be an entirely practical grain shockor, which will set the grain in stooks as it comes from the binder. The machine, it is said, can be fitted to any standard type of harvester; the cost will prob ably be In the neighborhood of L2P, and the draught of the machine to tho extent of making another horso necessary. The machine Is entirely automatic. Tho driver Is not supposed to do anything with it but to keep it .oiled and'keep the twine box filled.

Agriculture In America. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 13 March 1908
Agriculture In Amcrica. According- to a consular report the American farmer hail a prosperous year in 3906-7. A few years ago almost every farmer was in debt, but the mortgages have nearly all been paid off, and the position Is now sound, or, rather, was previous to the recent money panic. How that has affected United States agricul ture itf not yet reported. Large num bers of farmers In tho vicinity of Chi- , cago are selling off and moving to Can- ; ada.or Texas for the reason that land 1 abound Chicago Is becoming so vauabln that no cultivation, except market gar dening, can pay. In all the States land values are increasing, whilst all the Go-:, .vernment land suitable lor cultivation has been disposed of. Last year the total barley crop of the United States was 173,010,484 bushels, an Increas.e of 42,000,000 bushels over the previous year. The acreage under wheat In the States decreased last year by 550,000 acres, but despite this the crop was so good that it rdaehed a total of ...
Whitewashes for Buildings. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 13 March 1908
Whitewashes for Buildings, The following is from an official bul letin for United States Government work:-Procure half-bushel slaked lime, half-bushel salt, 61b. rice, 21b. glue, 10 gallons water, or proportional quanti ties. A kerosene tin holds a little more than half a bushel. Boil the rice with enough water to make a thin paste. Dis solve the glue in some more water with heat. Boil the salt and lime with the remainder of the water. Mix the three, and boil for half an hour. * In South,Australia the following la the. recipe for whitewash used In Govern ment buildings:-Have good lump lime, and slake it with boiling rain-water. "When fully slaked, and not before, add to each bucketful -of wash a double handful of sugar, and the same, quan tity of common salt. The salt and sugar must be first dissolved in boiling water. Now add to the hot, creamy mass about half a pint of raw linseed oil, and stir it well in. Strain, if necessary. Only mix one buckctful of wash for each man . at a -t...
Advising The Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 13 March 1908
Advising The Farmer. It is uniusing, when travelling by train (observes a writer in the "Otago . Witness") to henr various occupants of the smoking- carriage discussing tho con dition of agriculture in the country, and holding forth learnedly on the short comings of the former, and what they would do in his place. It Is amazing to witness the amount of knowledge of apiculture possessed by these people, who never threw a leg aver a horse in their lives, and would run away from a dairy cow. The only Association they have ever had with a form is the receipt of their daily inilk supply. If a farmer went into their offices in town, and laid down the law from his point of view about their business,' he would probably get locked up as a lunatic or kicked out for his pains. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry assumes the right to teach the farmer his business. Fortunately, these observations have no more effect upon him than water has on a duck's back. I do not hold a brief for the farmer, but I kno...
Selection of Seed Maize. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 13 March 1908
Selection of Seed Maizo. 'The importance of properly selecting anil caring for need maize (writes A. T. V/lancUo, of the Purdue Agricultural University, U.S.A.) has bnen so tho roughly discussed and brought to the Attention of farmers in every conceiv able way during the last few years that ! fhere can be no adequate excuse for ar>y malzo grower neglecting to save a good supply of seed and put It up In a safe, dry plnco before killing frosts occur. There la plenty of evldeneo to convince even the most unreasonable man that the time to get tho beat maize la early In the autumn, when it can be selected from the standing stalks aVid put away In a dry, well-ventllntod.place. The great majority of farmers do not get more than three-quarters of a full stand, of maize In theft fields, and tho result la 20 per cent, less yJeld at har vest time. The cause of the Imperfect stand nearly always lies In tho use of poor seed for planting. All seed maize should be gathered be* fore the first se...
Deaf Elephants. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 20 March 1908
Deaf Elophanfs. Solitary elephants, not necessarily "rogues," may bo met with in all jun £lo country frequented by elephants, declares Mr. Harry Story, the author of "Hunting and Shooting in Ceylon." A "solitary," he says, is rather fond of taking up his residence in the neigh bourhood of a village, and helping him self contentedly to the villagers' pro duce. Elephants in Ceylon have in general acquired a contempt for the presence of the ordinary villager, and will walk through a foncc as soon as look at it, and help themselves to growing crops in spite of the watchers' presence, shouts, or even the firing of guns. A good deal of this indifference is due to the fact that there are many deaf ele phants to he found all over the country, more than people imagine, and such animals are quite indifferent to any amount of noise. Let an elephant, however, once become aware that ho is being hunted, and he becomes as wary and alert as possible.
