NORTHERN WHEAT AREAS. VERY SERIOUS CONDITION. THREE MONTHS' SPELL OF DRY WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 10 September 1914
NORTHERN WHEAT AREAS. VERY SERIOUS CONDITION. THREE MONTHS' SPELL OF Dill WEATHER. The Central Weather Bureau has issued the following summary of the condition of stock, crops, pastures, water supply, etc., at the end of Ju.y, 1914, based upon the reports of the meteoroligcal observers throughout the State of Victoria: Reports from all over the Wimmera, Maliee, and Northern country, which form the bulk of tne northern wheat areas, with absolute unan-mity indicate for the end of July a very serious con dition. This is the third month of very dry and frosty weatlier, and, though the rains of the 29th J uly had a de cidedly refreshing effect upon the young wheat, tiie grass did not per ceptibly benefit. The latter had in deed gone off to such an exient that hand-feeding of sheep was almost everywhere being resorted to, ana many farmers were under the neces sity of ordering consignments of hay from the more fortunate ^districts. Thanks to such measures and the rar ity of overstocking, s...

DO MILK VEINS INDICATE CAPACITY? I This question is raised for discussion by a correspondent of the "Melbourne I Leader," who says: — "First, as to tuese veins, why are tliey so called ? They are not' milk veins. S-ine call them milk reservoirs, but this is also out of the question, i'liey do not indicate dairy capacity in its fullest sense of the term execpt during the years that a dairy cow may be in her prime, as after the prime years the enlarged veins remain large. A common idea is that there is so much milk in the udder and the milker just has to sit down and milk it out,-let it be much or litt.'e. This, I submit, is a mistake. The milker is the prime factor in filling the bucket. "The man who has his animals scar ed never gets much milk. By culti vating a quiet disposition in the cow, the instant you begin to prepare her udder and teats for the milking (that is to cleanse or make thom sanitary), she settles herself down to business. You start to milk. The small por tion of mi...

SUCKERS. DURING THEIR FIRST EIGHT WEEKS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 10 September 1914
SUCKERS. DURING THEIR FIRST EIGHT WEEKS. In the lecture on pig-feeding, the South Australian Government expert said that wheaten straw was the best to use for bedding. The little pigs until about three weeks old did", little elso but sleep and drink. They should not be allowed to roam at large with the mother. When it was noticed that theyv&ad a disposition to do so it was time to give them a little drink on their own, for much depended on get ting them to drink early. Milk that had had the chill taken off siiould bo supplied in a shallow, clean tin trough, where the sow could not gain access to it. Care should be taken to see that the suckers did not gorge themselves, or bowel trouble would occur. If anything were mixed with the milk, say, at four weeks, a. little bar ley meal, but not bran, was recom mended. As they grew the pigs might have a little scalded pollard added. This prepared them for the critical period of weaning, which should take place at about eight weeks ol...

COLIC DRINK FOR HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 10 September 1914
I COLIC DRINK FOR HORSES. I A useful mixture to keep on hand for use in cases of emergency is: Oil of turpentine, 3 oz., tincture of opium 2 oz., linseed oil to one piut. Store in carefully corked and scaled bottles, and in a cool place. Kept in this way, the mixture will remain good for 'years. Give the drink as it is , followed by a quart of warm gruel. Walk the horse about, at intervals rub the bally aud legs, and generally take every precau tion to prevent the animal getting down and rolling. If necessary, the drink may be repeated in two hours, but not more than two doses shouLd be given. If no relief is obtained in t.his period, it will be quite time thnt. a i veterinary surgeon should bo sent for, | \Ve have furnished this as a recipo for | a good colic drink for horses, but "good" is always a relative term.

THE WAY TO TALK TO THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 10 September 1914
THE WAY TO TALK TO THEM, f A dirty farmer, writing to "Hoard's Dairyman," wants to be told what to put into milk to make it stay sweet for three or four days—and how to mix it. And this is how "Hoard's" answers him:— "No, we will not, and for this rea son: It is against the laws of the Ped erai .Government and practically every State and city government to put any thing into milk to make it stay sweet. It is a criminal act to dope milk with preservatives. So much has been said and written on this subject that we are at a loss to understand why anyone should not know about it. There is a way to keep milk sweet. Keep it clean and cold. Keep-the dirt out. Take the heat out at once aftei milking. A clean, healthy cow nrilked by a clean, healthy milker in a clean, sanitary barn and Jiandled in clean utousils will produce an article thai will not need to be doped, if it will not keep when immediately eooleu. it is not fit for human food."
BROWN BULLETINS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 17 September 1914

One niormg the local ipliysician reported that Dea con Brown was seriously ill. The deacon was a man of some distinction in the community, so the editor posted a series of bulletins as -follows :—• , / "10 a.m.—Deacon Brown no better." ''11 a.m.—Deacon .- Brown has re lapse." ' "12.30 a.m.—Deacon Brown weaker, pulse failing." "2.15 p.m.—Deacon Brown's family has beten summoned. . - "3.10 p.m.—"Deacon Brown has. died and gone to heaven." Later in the afternoon a commercial traveller read tiie reports^ and added another:— • "4.10 p.m.—Great . excitement-- in heaven. Deacon Brown has'- riot':,yet; arrived." • • ''
SQUELCHED. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 17 September 1914
SQUELCHED. The repeal of. the much argued-about Canal toll brings to mind an excellent story of Colonel Goethals, the moving spirit in the construction of the great canal., One morning a'rather fidgety subor dinate came into the'colonel's office. ''I got your letter, colonel," he be gan, "and 1 came to——" He got no further, for tjie colonel, with uplifted eyebrows, cut in— ■&lt;* "Letter? Letter? There must be some mistake. 1 have written you no letter 1" "Oh, yes, colonel," repeated the man. - "I've got it here. It's about the work down at Mirafiorcs. Now, you see " Again tho colonel cut in,. '.'Uli, I seel But you misled me. You spoke of my letter. , You meant, of course, my orders!" , " The colonel's blue eyes stared coldly at the argumentatives man, wiio, sud denly feeling that the conversation was at an end, "faded away."

KIPPERED SOUL [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 17 September 1914
TTTPPW/RTT/n ftOTTT A certain divine, whose knowledge ! ,Scottish idioms and expressions:-i^as rather weak, had been spending part of his holiday in the land of cakes. At breakfast one morning he was regaled with kippered herring, and greatly liked the tasty meal. Having been told that when herrings were ■ kippered it meant that they were pre-' served, he mentally noted the instruc tion and made ludicrous use of it the following Sunday, when he prayed that ■ the Lord would abundantly kipper the soul of their beloved parson. , A Deptford grocer went down to the river to drown a dog. On the greasy steps leading to the water he apparen L lly slipped. He fell into the water. His pockct was full of stones, which he intended to fasten to the dog's col lar. He sank immediately. His body was recovered, the right hand still holding the lead with the dog's body attached.
THE FARM SEPARATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 17 September 1914
THE FARM SEPARATOR. The farm separator has come to stay, consequently the conditions un der which the machine does its clean est work should be understood. | Even temperature and even speed, ' are imperative if we would do the best work. Separators should be checked occasionally in their work so as to guard against a loss of fat. Formerly an average loss of .12 to .15 fat left in skim-milk was consid ered fairly good. At the present time a loss of over .5 is thought bad. It pays to watch closely, the separator. It must be borne in mind that a slight loss in skimming reaches a prodigious amount in the course of a ; year. j There is no machine used on the farm as much as the hand separator; hence, the importance of securing a good one and keeping it in the best of order. I i Separate the cream from the milk , at-a consistency producing approxi ! mately about ten gallons of cream i from every hundred gallons of milk. Cool the cream immediately after the separation.

THE BOY'S SACRIFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 17 September 1914
THE BOY'S SACRIFICE. He was a good little boy and very thoughtful. It was during- a long spell of dry weather, and he had heard of the great scarcity of water through out tlie country. He came to his mother and slipped his hand into hers. "Mamma," he said, "is it true that in some places the little boys and girls have scarcely enough water to drinla'' "That is what the papers say, my dear." "Mamma," he presently said, "I'd like to. give up sometliin' for those poor little boys and girls." ; His mother gave him a fond look. "Yes, dear. And what would you like to give up?" "Mamma," he said in liis earnest way, "as-long as the water is so very, very scarce I think I ought to give up being washed !" ' . . USE JS SECOND NATURE.

THE DAIRY. —I 27 COWS NET OWNER £160 IN ONB MONTH. It was recently my pleasure, as re presentative of the Oklahoma Agri cultural College, to supervise th&lt; testing of five cows in the Americac Jersey, Cattle Club's Register of Mer it, Nowata County, Oklahoma. Thit Jersey herd which consists of some thirty head of cows and an equal number of calves and yearlings, is recognised as- one of the best in Okla homa, and with its strain of good producing show animals will no doubt very shortly rank with the best Jersey farms in America. At the head of this herd is Finan cial Countess's Lad, who was grand champion bull at the 1912 Iowa Dairy Cattle Congress. This was the largest and most strongly contested dairy cattle show ever held in Amer ica. In selecting Financial Countess's Lad, Mr. Jones obtained a bull that is not onlj a great show animal, but one that is also a prepotent breeder. His dam, Financial Countess, one of the greatest Jersey cows ever impor ted, made 9351b. lOoz....

TURF TOPICS [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 17 September 1914
TURF TOPICS (By '■JFlemington.") Taking liis "book" form as a guide, I it seems difficult to believe in'Naxbery J as a probable winner on anything the colt has thrown in public he must make immense improvement if he is to reach the Derby standard. The task before him may, however, be accomplished Young horses have made the necessary headway before to-day. Poseidon, who like Nuxbery—a son of Pose'.don—was for instance, of little account as a two year old, but such rapid strides die: he make that when it came to the spring of his next season, he was easily the best of his age. Naxbery may go on in similar fashion. There was certainly distinct promise, in the way in which he shaped at Flemington last month when lie was only narrowly beat en in a seven furlong engagement. Hunting men have had an unsatis factory season. The dry spell lias naturally been a good deal against them. Still, the different clubs have in the circumstances, managed to provide &lt; a fair awouui of sport f...
TUBERCULOSIS BACILLI AND SUNLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 17 September 1914
TUBERCULOSIS BACILLI AND SUNLIGHT. I Investigations recently completed at one of the State Universities showed that the bacilli of tuberculosis will remain alive and virulent outside the bodj of a living animal for months. In the droppings of tuberculous cat tle they lived for more, than two months ; in butter in cold storage, for ten months ; and in the tissues of a dead guinea pig, in water, for I nearly a year. I It is evident that a tuberculous ' animal, either alive or dead, is a i menace unless intelligently handled j and disposed of. There is one thing,, ! however, that is certain death to I these devastating and well-nigh in ! vincible little germs, and that is I abundant sunlight, which' makes short work of them. Farmers who sneer at I scientific agriculture, up-to-date me ! thods, arid convenient, sanitary ' buildings as mere fads that cannot ' profitable be followed by the man ! who depends upon his farming opera ! tions for his living, will perhaps be I able to see, in t...
