HIS EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 23 July 1914
HIS EXPLANATION. A retired army officer tells a good story of a jobbing gardener, who, whatever his faults, apparently lacks nothing in the way of aptitude for making excuses. "I'd had considerable trouble with my rough hands in the garden," says the army man, "but when this honest eyed specimen applied for the job of well-digging about ten rods of ground, I was taken by his appearance, and told himnfo conme in the morning. "'Now I want you to take your time and dig it thoroughly, not merely scratch the surface,' I said. 'Never mind how long it takes, dig deeply.' And whilst I was standing by he car rled out my instructions admirably. "I left him at it quite certain that I would know if my orders were car ried out, for about six inches deep in the middle of the plot I had buried half a dozen clinkers each the size of a brick. "When I returned he was past the spot, but there was no sign of the clinkers lying about. "'Lend me your spade a minute,' I said, and straightway vnearthed the...

FOR THE FARMER. BRANDING CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 23 July 1914
FOR THE FARMER. d BRANDING CATTLE. The great waste of money entailed by our present methods of branding cattle is a subject which periodically crops up in the newspapers and lea tiher trade journals. It never appears, however, to get past this stage, for the same injurious method of apply ing hot irons to the best part of an animal's hide still continues. In tils connection it is pointed out by fthe English Farmers' FIederation that the lifference In price of leather, were it not branded, is probably 3d. to 4d. per pound. Then, again, raw hides, if not branded, would fetch ld. per pound more, and(, as these hIides weigh from 60 lb. to 80 lb. the difference inl value is very appreciable. The Federa tion advocates eitlher an alterationll of the method of branding, or that the anlmals be branlded with smaller brands, on ttlhe cheeks, ears, or lankhs --not on tile rump or tile back, as is at present nearly always done. They consider that this would be equally distinguishable, and would ...

MAIZE FOR COLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 23 July 1914
MAIZE FOR COLOR. There are so-called egg foods ga lore, but he real thing is a proper pro portion of maize green food and lean I ment. Too often the high-priced win- I fair with cuorlt's ,jml. flabiby atf white. This results from feeding without a sufficiency of green food and hard grain, especially maize. 'Fresh green feed and maize will pro duce the egg with rich, golden yolk and firm white standing up aroundl it -a thing of beauty oni the breakfast table andi a joy to the breakfaster. An abundar.ce of egg-making food fed to the pullets in an appetlsing and di gestible form so that large quantities may be eaten and assimilated is ne cessary to prolific egg ;:roduction at any season, but particularly in whi ter. Succulent green food is especi ally essential for this purpose, being in fact one of the thinigs that belong to the springtime with its flush of egg production.

IO OWEE!RU P. The late heavy rain has caured por tion of the Koowocrop Swamp to be come flooded to a depth of up to 3fi., and, as heavy showers were falling on Wednesday night of last week. there is a prospect of the flood equalling that of three years ago.
