FEEDING FOR FEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
FEEDING FOR FEATHER. Feeding poultry for feather is tt very important matter, for on the even and fairly quick growth of fea ther depends, in most instances, the quality of plumage, its'color, and its marking. Feather growth makes a great strain on a young bird's strength, and it is at this period that novices have wondered at the appar ent stoppage in the growth of their pet specimens. Good diet of a rather more fatty quality is needed now, but care must 'be taken that the pigmen tary quality of the food is not injur ious to Lhe color of the bird we are rearing. Thus* maize must on no ac count be given to white fowls at this stage, and even red wheat is not with out ite dangers. Good oats, with oc casional feeds of white peas and a little boiled linseed, the latter mixed with the soft food, are excellent. Tight feathered birds, such as game, might with advantage have a little pea-meal mixed with the soft food, and old dried peas are to be recom mended. Color feeding is not satis fa...
VENTILATION IN FOWL HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
ventilatIon in fowl houses. Open your bedroom windows wide, or sleep out on the verandah, and you wake up in the morning feeiing like a fighting-cock. You have had ventila tion. Opeu your window an inch and your door an inch, and morning will find you sniffling like an old nag wilh the heaves. A draught is a thin stream of cold air sneaking in through a warmer body of air without mixing. Ventilation is a body of air that., how ever cold, comes in a bunch, and has volume enough to regulate its own temperature. You might think of these things in regard to your hen house, for a fow. is more susceptible to a draught than any living thing. A fowl's body is a regular little en gine. Did you know that fowls don't sweat? You didn't! Why, they have no sweat glands. A fowl's natural temperature is away above the fever heat o. all other living creatures, and that makes a draught of air their death warrant.
TO GIRLS WHO FAIL TO PLEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
TO GIRLS WHO FAIL TO PLEASE. To girls who, for some undefined reason, fail to please in a general way, though hero and there they may gain a friend, an admirer, a lover, and who would like to feel a conscious power to attract a certainty of social success at any time or place, there is this to he said. To begin with, a soft voice and a quiet manner are desirable; sympathy is not easily expressed in boisterous tones or a bustling-mannered demean or. Given these, there are few precepts to remember. Do not ask a series of deliberate questions, but try to ascertain what subject interests your partner in con versation, and if you know little or nothing of it, be sure that an intelli gent listener is always appreciated. Even the dullest-seeming man, the most raw youth, has some coign of vantage where he feels at home; and if you lead him to talk of this, and you demonstrate the fact that he in terests you, you increase his self-re spect, you convey a pleasant tingle of self-satisfaction, ...
GIRLS' HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
GIRLS' HAIR. The care of a girl's hair during her childhood has much to do with its later beauty. With the exception of an occasional clipping or singeing of tiie ends whore u tendency to split is noticeable, the growth of the hair should not be interfered with. The old idea that it ought to be cut short in childhood is not now entertained, except in special cases. Jt is unwise to trust the daily comb ing of a little girl's hair entirely to the nurse, certainly not without fre quent overlooking. Hasty combing injures the hair by breaking it. II should be carefully brushed out, the hair being separated into strands if it shows a tendency to mat. If the comb, at the end of the operation, has gathered a considerable amount of knots and snarls and long hairs, the method has not neen proper. It is possible to brush out a tangle of locks and scarcely lose a hair, but it takes care and patience. 11 is also unwise to wash the hair too often, as it makes it dry and brit tle. Profuse perspira...

DAIRYING. POINTS IN CHEESE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
DAIRYING. POINTS IN CHEESE-MAKING. For hard-pressed cheese, where a ripe milk is required, it is best to use night and morning's milk mixed. In the case of making checRe from sweet .milk, such tin HouiQ varieties of im pressed cheese, it is often mont satis factory to nse one meal's milk only. Tlie rennet must be very carefully added to milk tliat is overripe, as the acidity in the milk stimulates the ac tion of the rennet, making it work very quickly. Unless great care is exercised, the milk will be over-stir red and rendered useless for cheese making. It is most important that the curd bo of uniform consistence throughout, and this is obtained by judiciously stirring in the rennet and taking pre cautions to prevent the temperature of the renneted milk falling. Keep the vat covered, and water a little warmer than the milk in tho vat jackot. Whey from cheese making may be set in tanks, and the cream skimmed off tho next day, before using the whey for pig-feeding. Whey cream can be m...

SYDNEY'S SINFUL SUNDAY. Tho Public Morals Committee of the Presbyterian Assembly "Regrets that there is no observable diminution iu the volume o£ the human stream that sots towards recreational resorts on Sunday." On Sabbath after Sabbath see them pass tho churchoB by; While Presbyterians lament, let's find the reason why.

When joys of Sydney Harbor to tho Sydney people call, The wonder is that anyone will go to church at all. It may bo right; it may be wrong; Persnurkus will not seek To justify the way they spend their holiday per week. ..or yet can Peter well condemn tho pleasant tliingB they do. For, if the honest truth be told, gay Peter does -"om too. When he was young he went to church because ho had to go, But now he's wIbo to all the t...
WITH DEADLY EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
WITH DEADLY EFFECT. A malign passion may bo the effect of a disease; If Dot, it will tend di rectly to produce that disease (says a physician'). Avarice, long indulged, destroys the normal balance of the brain, and at length shrivels It up by concentrating nourishment on the part which Is concerned with getting and holding. Outbursts of anger strike at the heart. Many a man has dropped dead In the lieat of rage. Moroseness Is very effectual in pro ducing disease. It acts specially up on the liver and the digestive organs. The seat of the affections is In the brain. This suffers flrBt; afterwards, In course of time, the organs which it controls. To the vain man one can only ex tend pity or contempt. Writing of vain-glory, Bacon Bald: "Glorious (I.e., bsastful) men are the scorn of wlBe men, the abomination of fools, the Idol of parasiteB, and the slaves of their own vaunts." But Bacon did not cm. fuse vain-glory with pride in Its best sense. Money can't buy the loyalty of n dog or th...
LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene," in Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
LADIES' LETTER. From "Irene," In Melbourne. We otten hear of folks being "blue," but have nevor seen It so nearly ex emplified aa at the Repertory Thea tre ball, whore soveral ladles were blue from head to foot literally, for they even displayed blue hair. This was the first time in Melbourne that the new dyed wigs have !'een seej In any numbers, and we have not yet quite decided whether wo like them orx not. wt' course, wo L're accus tomed to the coiffure which is so deep orange, in hue that it is prac tically majenta. We havo had a num ber of these of late years, but tho new toncB are quite a novelty. I can not say they are nearly as becoming as tho natural colored hair. The dark moonlight blue is certaim t more becoming than the light saxe tones, and in one or two Instances tho purple proved really effective, but on the whole these colored wigs can not be voted a success. Certainly one cannot conceive of anyone going the length of dyeing her own hair. • t is but a freak fashion a...
MECHANICAL MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
MECHANICAL MANAGEMENT. So much had 'been said of late about scientific management in manufactur ing establishments that it may be de sirable to look ahead a little and en deavor to nee just what departments of productive activity are really in line to be managed according to the methods thus advocated. In general, it seems as if the lines of work capa ble of such organisation and conduct are those from which, in the course of a comparatively short time, :he ikllled mechanic may bo ' almost wholly eliminated. Repetitive processes, operations which may be described in instruction cards or planned out wholly in ad vance by some one other than the in dividual by whom they are to be exe cuted, are the very ones from which the element of individual judgment may be almost entirely removed, and therefore are next in line to be turned over to an inanimate and almost en tirely automatic machine. The things which the machine cannot do to ad vantage are those which are not per formed twice alik...

FOODS OF THE MIND.

But wo do not recog nise with like readiness and in the same wuy the effect of the foods ot the mind on the mind arid its health; nor is this remarkable, for the body feeds perceptibly, and by ono stom ach alone, while tho mind feeds im perceptibly 'by iivo stomachs, by every sense, wliiclk Is to it a veritable stomach, from and by which it re ceives its ailment, be that good or bad, and from and by which it is re newed and from day to day sustained.

CHANGE OF FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
CHANGE OF FOOD. When the chickens have got nicely feathered—say, about, -five or six weeks old—they will need to be put upon a different food regime, accord ing to tlie breed. Those that are short of leg and very feathery will need plenty of rice, which, although it does not produce bone, does influ ence feather considerably, not alto gether because of its own nutritive qualities, so much as it does by its ac tion in keeping the blood cool, and thus allowing the other foods given to be assimilated with ease and com fort without the skin become dry and irritated, and tliuH acting as a deter rent upon feather growth. If stimu lative and nourishing foods are given, the blood becomes over-heated, and the skin is apt to become dry and , harsh, and when this is the case the j feathers do not break nicely. I
THE POULTRY YARD. FOOD FOR LAYING HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
THE POULTRY YARD. FOOD FOR LAYING HENS. A laying hen requires daily about three to four ounces of food, accord ing to size. A bird in a wild state feeds on all kinds of food, many var- . letles often in a meal, and seldom | two meals aliko, Henco wo Bcldom see a Bickly wild bird. Poultry, if fed long on one kind of food, will soon contract some disease or other, either directly from organs being thrown out of working or from an enfeebled constitution, whereby they catch any thing that may &lt;be going. Rations for laying 'hens should he made from bran, pollard, pea-meal, maize-meal, crushed oats, chopped cabbage, chaff ed lucerne, boiled potatoes, and other vegetables, fresh-cut green bone, lean meant, cut green grass, etc. Any four of these may bo combined to gether for a meal, providing bran be in all, and one other meal with one of vegetable and one meat.

Tonics—that is, harmless tonics are Rood at times when given to ra tionally feil fowls. The healthiest birds arc liable to become run down, especially during the breeding season, and a little pood tonic glvcu at the right time is a pick-me-up.

THE BREEDING PENS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 22 May 1914
THE BREEDING PENS. For the man who poos in solely for eggs, fi forcing system of feeding is all right, but it is bound to be detri mental to oreeding stock, find this is why pullets intended for breeding purposes should not bo given big quantities ot nourishing soft food. IC they are, It Is almost certain that many ot tlio orbs producpil will bo In fertile; at least nome ot them will lie weakly fertilised, and tho clianceB ot strong, robust chickens greatly re duced. It Is not the quantity of eggs, but It is tlio quality of them from a breeding standpoint that those on tho lookout for early chickens must study. It is ten times more important to thorn to get fifty eggs likely to hatch out strong chickens than 0110 hundred eggs that are almost worthless from n hatching staudpoint.

How To Cure Indigestion The following letters will be of in tense interest to sufferers from Indi gestion:— From Mrs. D. H. Cole, 70 Keightley road, Subiaco, W\A. "For many years I suffered from frequent attacks of indigestion, follow ed by pains in the ches'., 6evere head aches, sleeplessness, biliousness, con stipation fiud pains under the shoulder blades. I could retain little on my eto znarb, and vomited frequently.

Tho bruit of death stirred .the vil lage, and sent many of its poorest pooplo to the doors of the Rock IIoubo that night Thoy owed much to the generosity of tho rich Ameri can who had dwelt among them so mysteriously, and they paid the last homage with a devotion which was very real. To all these Father Domi nic gave his blessing when ho left tho house "vyith Vaguna at midnight. "Ho is dead, my friends—God rest his soul." So truly had tho child-wife dreamed—so wore her words justi fied. Down at the hotel where tho three strangers waited for the tidings, the doctor excused himsolf with what fair pleas he could, and said that it was a case of syncope and should have been expected. The terror of tho trance might havo contributed to it, but tho drug had been tho active agent.
