THE DENTIST. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 December 1914

THE DENTIST. He well deserves a laurel wreath, tho | man who tinkers with my teeth, when I they are out of plum; lie plugs tlieni u]) with melted lenrl, and soothes my swelled ajid aching head, and heals the tortured gum. Upon his skijl your com fort han^s when vou have trouble with your fangs, and seldom does lie fail; liis shilling instrument lie wags and draws the old insurgent snags, then draws his slice of kale. No more you hear in dentist 's room the shrieks of those who dread their doom, of those whose souls are iiick; the patient calm ly sits and smiles, the while the den tist with his liles and ]kiiicers does the trick. Mow different in olden days! The dentist then had playful ways; he siit upon a bench, and took your head between his knees, iuid, muttering, "Look pleasant, please," he plied his mpiikey wrench.

THE CAPE-TO-BAIRO RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 3 December 1914

THE CAPE-TO-CAIRO RAILWAY.   The Cape-to-Cairo Railway has     been surveyed as far as the Zam-   besi, where a great steel bridge hav- ing one span of 500ft., will carry the line across the river at the Vic- toria Falls. The whole section   from Buluwayo to the Zambesi— 275 miles in length, or nearly 1,700 miles from Capetown—is expected to be opened next year. Locomotives for contractors' pur- poses are now running on it for a short distance north of the present terminus, and a railway exploration party has been despatched over the railway route beyond Victoria Falls as far as Tanganyika. For 40 miles north of Buluwayo the earthworks are more or less complete, bridging work on the Vic- toria Falls section is in progress, and about five miles of line are fin-   ished.

SULPHIRING POTATOES. It lias been found that by roling the tubers iu pitvdered sulphur betore planting potatoes infested with scab, the danger. 'f disease is diminished. Trials have Icon made to test the el fect of applyiig the sulphur to the soil at tile tiineo planting, and tha results have proved to be very satisfactory. .Nut only wes the tubers almost free from scab, lut the crop was more abundant. Did the increased crop come Irum tie freedom from disease! or did the sulphur exercise *u direct iiiauuii.il effect on the plants?

WHY COW-TESTING PAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 10 December 1914

WHY COW-TESTING PAYS. Cow-testing shows the money-makers Tlie best cows in t^any herds are re turning a profit of £25 or more every year. It is possible to have every cow kept do as well. The loafers, tbe cows that consume more than they return, aro quickly spotted and elimiuated when tho cow test is used. No successful merchant handles a line of goods on which he loses money; lilcewiso, no progressive dairyman will keep a cow on which he does not make a profit. The milking of cows is a straight business proposi tion, and no farmer can afford to spend his own time, or pay high priced labor to milk cows which do not pay. for their bjnrd. Let's make the £25 return per cow our standard. To build up a profitable herd the cow is indispensable. It enables the dairyman to quickly get .a high pro ducing herd by selecting heifers from only the best cows. In this connec tion the sires that are capable of transmitting dairy quality and tempera ment to their offspring can bu proved. The Tory ge...

THE PROFIT OF THE COW. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 10 December 1914

fHE PKUHT OF THE COW. Wo hear a great deal about the pro iit from "imiKuig" coivs. Tlje subject is not broad enough; it should be "i'roht in Keeping cows." Many who "keep" cows place a rulue on tho cow m proportion only to the cream cheque tuey receive, in otuer words, they value Her simply on the bafiis of the cash that the cicam brings. It the cream cheque does nui pay tor the labor of milking and i ceil ing her, then the conclusion is that she is not profitable. We do not believe this is correct. Suppose we examine all the sources of revenue. First, the butter-fat from the cow sold to the creamery at a lixed price is expressible in terms of cash. Second, a portion of the whole rnilU used to feed the calf after its birth until such time as it is able to be sup ported on skim milk and other feeds. This is worth, for feeding purposes, as much aa any whole milk the cow gives. Third, on every farm there is a cer tain amount of the milk and cream used by the family, and there is a cer ...

A food which tan be easily grown anywhere, ar.d which is of high food value, and much relished by the birds, is sunflower seed. The heads should lie plucked before they are quito ripe, and woll dried to prevent moulding. Crushed, it can be added to the soft feed, and in the seed it may be added to the other grain supplied. The scod should bn sown thinly, as when planted out in rows the plants require to be ISin. apart, and the rows from lift, to 3ft.
