CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914
;CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. Proper cultivation of the soil in creases the nitrifying bacteria, and this, in turn, increases productive ness-a most important consideration to the farmer. The knowledge of bac teria and their work is recent and *limited; there are many in kind, and in spite of the amount of work done, scientists are-only in the midst of I heir discovery. The practical far mer does well to let bacteriologists monopolise interest in the whole subject, except in so far as he can provide some conditions that have been demonstrated to be profitable. The work of bacteria, hoever, must come more and more into considera tibn by the farmer, because Nature uses them to produce a :vast amount of the change that is going on around us. In the consideration of the na ture of legumes, we must take into account the bacteria. which they have associated with them, and through which they obtain the atmospheric nitrogen. It is true that bacteria must have favorable conditions that our plan...
PRUNING CITRUS TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914
PRUNING CITRUS TREES. ManY people differ considerably in their opinions as to the proper way in which citrus trees should be pruned:.! The majority persist in the belief that these trees require only to be thinned out and have the -dead wood removed. MIUch ~ depends upon the construction placed upon such statements. If, as is generally the case, such an expres sion conveys the idea of merely cut ting out the dead wood and thinning' parts of the tree where the foliage is very dense, it does not go far: enough. An orange tree bears the greater part of its crop n the outside branches, and while plenty of light' and air are needed in -the interior of the trees, this does not imply a neces sity for hollowing it out, so as to leave the main inside branches de void of. follage. Nevertheless, it is necessary that much of the inside growth should be removed, so that what is allowed to remain will be wvell spaced and well lighted, other wise it will become starved and barren, making it useles...
UTENSILS FOR RIPENING CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914
UTENSILS FOR RIPENING CREAM. The most. suitable utensils in which to ripen cream satisfactorily are those made of glazed earthenware or enam elled iron. This kind of vessel can be cleaned easily, and will not in jure i~e cream. Tin or galvanised vessels are acted upon by the acid in the cream, and thus they become tainted withi a kind of metllis flavor.
WHEN TESTING MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914
WHEN TESTING MILK. The apparatus for testing milk should be kept on a lead-covered table, as the acid used in carrying out the Gerber test has not any effect upion lead. If any sulphuric acid gets s.i!e'd on wood, the wood -gets blirn ed up. Always keep the stopper in the sulphuric acid bottle, otherwise the acid will absorb the moisture from the air, and thus become weak ened. Everything comes to him who -waits, but hustle well -while you are wvait iug.

COWS HARD TO MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914
COWS HARD TO MILK., There are two methods of treating the hard-mllking cow. One is to use teat plugs or dilaters. They are merely piugs mace so that they may De inserted in the end of the teat, where they remain between milkimg periods. '.he reason a cow milas nard is because the sphincter muscle, \. hich contracts the end of the teat, is rigid. The teat plugs remaining in the teat between milking hours have a tendency gradually to discend and dilate this muscle in such a way that the cow eventually becomes easy to milk. The second method is to cut the teats, thus weakening the sphincter muscle. This is accomplished by a Ieat-spiltter, an instrument that is in serted into the teat. By pressing the end, small knives are pressed out in such a way that when the teat-split ter is withdrawn the musc!le is sever$ ed. There is really no reason why one should. ,utilise his time with hard milkers when by use of these inex pensive instruments they may be ren dered easy milkers. One precaution...

THE REJECTED COW. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914
THE REJECTED COW. At present there is nothing to pre-' vent the rejected cow from finding its way into an auction yard, or even into a clearance sale, to be again the subject of disappointment to another farmer until he similarly gets rid of it. This can go on until through sheer age the cow disappears from the dairy farm, after being all its life an unprofitable drag on somebody. Unaer a better system the animal would be fattened for beef as soon as its milk-producing capacity, or rather incapacity, was discovered. Of course this immediate elimination of the unprofitable dairy cow does take place in innumerable instances, but it is obviously necessary that its fate should be automatically sealed the moment it is weighed in the balance and found wanting. Cow-testing has now fortunately become so general throughout the State that farmers would be well advised to introduce tile rule that at all sales an authen ticated milking record should be pro duced with each cow offered for sale.<...

DAIRYING. THE COWYARD. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914
DAIRYING. S THE COWYARD. Under usual conditions, the cow-. yard is a serious handicap to good dairy products. It should De set up on i well-drained piece of land. with the slope iAway trom the milking shed and dairy. The use of gravel is to be recommended, and some have employed concrete to make sure that the cows are kept away from mud and filth. The yard should be kept dlean, and the manure removed promptly and conserved at some con sideracle distance from the milking shed or dairy premises. This pre caution will also greatly help in keep ing down the number of files. The practice of milking in un'suitable sur roundings is possibly doing more to retard progress in dairying than any other existing custom.

"From mother to daughter, generation after generation, writes a lady now 70 years old, " we have been noted throughout the little provincial town where we live for the beauty of our com plexions, preserved even to old age. Of late so many of our friends seem to have been deceived and disappointed by harmful skin remedies that we have decided it is not right for us to keep to our selves any longer the formula that has always been? considered as our family secret, and to which we owe our ' eternal youth.'

The Methodist Church. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914
The Methodist Church. On Sunday last there were excellent congregations at the Methodist Church, when Mr Lumley, a visitor from Surrey Hills, ably officiated in the morning, and the Rev. C. W. Atkinson, M.A., recently returned from England, in the evening. On the following evening, there was another good gathering, when Mr J. G. Membrey, M.LI.A., presided, and an address, entitled " England as I saw It," given by the Rev Mr Atkinson, which was listened to with great interest, and received repeated applause from the audience. Mr Atkinson, who is an able and fluent speaker, said there is a great embarrassment in trying to speak of England in the limits of a single lecture, for if its extent of territory is not large, the land is full. One of the earliest features of England, of which a stranger becomes conscious is that that the past is still alive in the present. Memorials of other days still exist in old Druidic stones, in University colleges, Abbeys, Cathedrals, etc.1 and it is eas...
WORMS. SOME STRIKING SYMPTOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914
WORMS. 80ME STRIKINC SYMPTOMS. A child who is afflicted with worms will-often be in an indifferent state of health. It becomes peevish and irrit able. and will have a strong tendency to pick the nose, and there will be severe itching of the lower bowel. Grinding the teeth and suddenly starting up in! the sleep will also be noticed. The bowels are irregular, some times constipated, and at other times relaxed, with bloody discharges as in dysentery, and not infre quently the discharges will be in flakes and shreds, which might be taken tor partlv-digested food. The best proof of Worms is Worms, and if their presence is suspected, immediate steps should be taken to positively establish the fact, and once established, Comstock's "Dead Shot" Worm Pellets should be administered, according to directions. Worms require a specific. medicine, and th'- is no remedy so effective as these Pellets. They kill the Worms, destroy their eggs, and dislodge their nests. The wife of a well-known Waitara...
Grasmere. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914
Grasmere. From our Correspondent. -o Farmers in this district are about finished harvesting, and. sihice Christmas, have been very busy carting in. MdIt of them have had splendid- crops this season, but al though the hay is of the best qual ity prices-are very low in the mark et, some local growers having sold aslow as 20s per ton, which will not pay the cost of growing. Others again intend to thresh most of their stacks, but prices for grain are, at present, also on the low side. Dairying is the best paying in dustry at present. Iarge quanti ties of milk are being sent twice daily from all the district depots to I Nestles' Factory at Deunington, and-dairymen speak in high terms of praise of the Nestles' Company. Dairying in conjunction with other farming pursuits, as carried on at present, is a most strenuous life. Day after day lfie is one continu ous round of bustle, so much so that one cannot but wonder some times how human nature can stand the strain of it all. The area under p...
