THE DAIRY THE MILK YIELD. HOW TO IMPROVE IT. MAKING GOOD YIELDS BETTER. So long ns the avorngo milk-producer can get plenty o£ milk from the herd, nnil ot the samp time the payment ob tained either by direct snlo or from the crenmery la not too slow, so long will the tendency be evident to let things continue as they are. Changes which would easily Im prove matters will be but- slowly male IC a comfortable, easy going state of affairs Is reached. The. seeking for Improvements, and the de sire to approach nearer to perfection In methods, and "results are rarely a char acteristic ot the average farmer. Lack -of time,' early habits, the necessity of making both ends meet, the troubles of each day, all tend to give the feeling of satisfaction that things arc going on, and are nppa.rently "no worse tlinu last year." If but a fair average Is kept lip, this Is 'thought to be good enough to be' worth letting alone. Yet different-and mor6 advantageous methods: and systems can often be In tro...

FARM AND FIELD Food for Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 11 December 1908

FARM AND FIELD Tood for Pigs. The pig js a universal eator, capable, of turning to good use a wide variety of foods. This is not to say that all sorts of food will do so long as they satisfy his appetite; but it means that we have the choice of many different foods and must be careful to supply such rations as will develop the animal as quickly as possible; so will the cost of the flesh production be lowest. For fattening pigs rations fairly rich in albuminoids arc" desirable. . Such foods produce quicker growthrlncrease weight, and lean flesh: But the different effect of I the various. kinds of nitrogenous food I should be considered; for instance, pigs' fattened on "pea meal develop more lean than if fattened on maize. On some farms it is'ciustomary to cook or steam nearly all the food, but this system may ' easily be carried too far. Potatoes should be cooked, but not so barley meal. With the exception ofi potatoes, the cooking does not promote digestion, but ! has rather an oppo...

"Loud" Dress. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 11 December 1908

"Loud" Dress. Tho editor of the "Tailor and Cut ter" has been studying tho clothes worn by American men of various types in Loudon, and has como to tho agreeable conclusion that "thoy are not so objectionablo as they were." i 'Tho American tailoring magazines are constantly trying to belittle Lon don tailors, but tho fact remains that tho better class of Americans still come to London for their clothes. "Tho Americans whom I havo studied this season appear to havo modified tho extravagances which, made American clothes look almost vulgar ono or two seasons ago, but there is still a xegretinblc display of raised seams where no seams arc ne cessary, and^ of strange turned back cuffs with aggressive buttons-on tho wrong places. This fashion of wear ing many buttons appears to be spreading on tho other side. I noticed an American in tho Strand wearing an outsido breast pocket to a loungo suit, and tho Hap of tho pocket was held down by a single button about ' the size of a marble in tho...

On "Tho Antiquities of India," the "Times" wrltes:-r-"It was not so very .long ago that the general indifference to :the* fascinating, attractions, of Indian ;archceology was shared by most of our 'countrymen in India. The story that last 'century it was officially-proposed to null .down the incomparable Taj Mahal for the value off its-marbles is now believed to be an exaggeration; but pther schemes of almost equally incredible vandalism have sometimes been <ad vanccd, and occasionally been actually carried into effect. After tho Mutiny, it was very nearly decided to destroy tho magnificent Jumma Musjid at Delhi. The lovely courts and audionce halls of Shah' Jehan were turned into offices and casual dwelling-places. All over India a similar disregard of the beauty and the; interest of thq relics of tho past was manifested: Palaces; were used for bar racks, mosques for post-offices and hos pitals,' tombs of glorious design were ^converted int...

Dairying in Japan. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 11 December 1908

Dairying in Japan. There was a time when milk was regarded in Japan with the saino ab horrence as cheese in China, Recent statistics, however, show that tiiuo has worked a great change in this respect, and milk and butter are now in great favour in Jai>an. "Whereas 25 years ago not more than one or two per cent, of tho persons visiting Euro pean restaurant, or eating a > Euro pean meal at a friend's house, -would have thought of touching butter; fully 40 or 50 per cent, now eat it' with relish. They are, however, quite con* tent to do without it. Dairy farms have increased notably in recoil t years. Butter, however, is a by-product at these places. It is milk that' tlicy look for profit. Milk has a curious history in Japan. -30 or 40 years ago it was abhorred. The average Japan ese could not induce himself to rirink it. But to-day, many n household con sumes one or two botLles daily, partly bccauso pcoplo havo begun to lilco it as a uniouo and wUolosomo beverage. "Milk halls,"...
