SOIL BACTERIA AND THEIR ACTION ON PHOSPHATE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914
I j SOIL BACTERIA AND THEIR ACTION ON PHOSPHATE. ' It has been known for some time | that insoluble phosphate in the soil is i rendered soluble by the acids formed ! through the agency of certain kinds of bacteria. .Mr. Koch made a series &lt;jf investigations to throw more definite light on the subject, lie experiment ed with a variety of phosphates of dilt'erent degrees of solubility, and claims to have demonstrated— (1) That bacteria, in consequence of acid formations, convert insoluble phosphate into a condition Soluble in water. 12.) In presence of substances in the soil, such as carbonate of lime, carbonate of magnesia, ammonia, act ing as bases, the bacteria begin by acting on them, and only afterwards exert their dissolving inlluence on the phosphoric acid. (3) Bacteria act on all phosphates, but their degree of activity is vari able according to the character of the phosphate. (4) The phosphoric acid in basic slag is rendered available very eas ily. (5) The goou res...
PRODUCTION OF COWS. The Most Important Question. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914
I I PRODUCTION OF COWS. The Most Important Question. I Every individual cow has a maxi mum point of production at which dae can bo kept by proper Coed and pro per conditions, and unless a. cow is at, or nearly at, this point, she ani her owner are not working together for their mutual advantage as they should worlc together. II the cow's natural maximum of production is high, it is the owner's fault if she is not supplied with proper foods aud conditions to keep her working iu che immediate neighborhood of that high production of which she is capable; and if her maximum of production is low, then no feed and no conditions will make her a paying proposition, and the quicker the owner is rid of her the' better. There are few farms 011 which there are not from 10 to 75 per cent, of cows that are absolutely making no profit whatever, and many that are a distinct loss to their own ers. The only profitable course to take where the herd does not yield a fair prolit is to lind out whether t...

PIGS FOR NEW COUNTRIES. British Types to Choose From. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914
PIGS FOR NEW COUNTRIES. British Types to Choose From. There is no foundation stock for suc cessful pig-raising (writes Mr. G. T. Burrows) like the well-defined breeds of Great Britain which, in their own way, are built to suit both the taste of any neighborhood and the pocket of the farmer who is stepping out o!! the rut of the grade breeder to a full fledged pedigree stock-keeper. Told tersely, the varieties of British pigs can be counted upon one hand, but their values are unrealisable. A par ticular pet of the North of England farmer is the Large White, which, ori ginally bred in Yorkshire, is tile larg est British white breed. It lias a rather long w-liiti; coat on a white skin, which occasionally shows a few bins spots. The head is moderately long, snout broad, face slightly dished and ' wide between the ears, and jowl not too heavy. The tail is set high, hang ing perpendicularly, long and stout, with a tassel of fine hair. Its chief characteristics am a strong constitu tion, i...
EARNING CAPACITY OF DAIRY HERDS. Two Eloquent' Examples. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914
EARNING CAPACITY OF DAIRY HERDS. Two Eloquent' Examples. To show how the earning capacity of different herds works out in actual practice, without taking extreme ct.ses, an experienced dairy farmer refers to the records of two herds o; 40 cows. The first herd produced an average ot" UUTlb. of butter-fat; ana wu lower herd gave only 1511b. of butter fat. The first herd returned a profit of £5 17/- per cow, "and the second herd showed a prolit of only 4/- per cow. The second herd would have to b milked for nearly 30 years to pro duce as much prolit as the better herd produced in one year; or 1200 cows of their capacity would produce only as much us the 10 good cows in one year. It may also be mentioned that •10 good c8ws cost £300 for feed and labor for one year. The other, herd would require to have £9000 expend ed upon them to produce the same am ount of profit. And, yet there are some people who say there is nothing gained by testing their cows. Others make the excuse that they' ha...
District News. NARINGHAL. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914
District Hews. NIIUM.'iU. Local crops have taken a new lease of life, and look marvellously fit and well. Taking the adverse weather conditions into considera tion they form a line advertisement for the wheat-growing propensities of the plains. A new rain gauge has been pre sented to the local school by Mr George'Perry. Mr Perry hopes that it will receive at least an inch pf cristening from abovo in the near future. , The local people are at present actively engaged in working up a variety concert. A working com-, inittee has been formed, with Mr'H. Young as chairman and Mr Perry as secretary. The ladies are taking a very lively iuterest in the move ment.

CROSSING JERSEYS AND HOLSTEINS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914
CROSSING JERSEYS AND HOLSTEINS. When a cross is made between two different breeds, there is the. bring ing together o£ forces which in many cases are more or less antagonistic; that is, the animals have been brc:l in different ways although perform ing the same function. The Jersey is quite a different animal from the Hol stein. It is smaller in size, raised in a country entirely different, and has certain characteristics quite different from the Hoistein. The Jersey pro duced milk that tests in the neigh borhood of 5 per cent., while the Hoi stein produces milk testing about SVi per cent. The Jersey gives" less milk than the Hoistein, but it is richer in total solids. It has been a fanciful dream of some that the breeding of the Hoi stein and Jersey together would pro duce an animal that would give a large flow of milk containing the high percentage of fat of the Jersey. In crossing these breeds this happy im agination has never materialised. Some good animals have been pro duced b...
STOCKTAKING. Valuation of Stock and Plant. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914
STOCKTAKING. Valuation of Stock and Plant. If you ask a farmer, stockbreeder, or man engaged in other rural .ndus-' tnes, whether he has an annual stock taking as is the ease in all commer cial undertakings, perhaps not one' :n a hundred will answer in the af firmative. The nearest approach to it is done by the sheepbreeder, and in a less degree by owners of horses,.' cattle, pigs, poultry, etc. E*«n ' the.' financial institutions who o,v,i large properties do not do it in as thorough a manner as, for instance, the large drapery establishments in a city. Yet a complete system of bookkeeping is as necessary with one as with the other, if a man wants to know the, exact state of his financial position. .Many a man has landed himself into financial difficulties through not bnv ing kept a proper account of his in comings and outgoings. It is a mistake to think that the man on the land is less liable to fin ancial losses by defaulting creditors than the city man. He gets hit just an'^ som...

THE INFLUENCE OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914
THE INFLUENCE OF CHILDREN. The motives to exertion furnished by the possession o£ a family of chil dren are ;.s powerful as ever moved heart or h'ind. The secret o£ many a struggle and triumph in life's battle, may be found at home in the shape of an infant in its mother's lap. The man who has children dependent on him .will—must—struggle manfully, and- bear up against the most adverse circumstances. The thought that the joy of their innocent young lives de pends upon his courage, his persever ance, his energy—this thought will enable him to work wonders, to achieve what will appear impossibili ties to the man who has only his own selfish needs, his own selfish ambi tion, to urge him on.

Silence Reigned Supreme. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914
Silence Reigned Supreme. It was at the theatre, and the young man had seen the play before. He let everybody for live seats around know that. He had a pretty girl with him, and he was trying to amuse her. At length he said: "Did you ever try listening to a play with your eyes shut? You've no idea how funny it seems!'" A middle-aged man with a red face sat just in front. He twisted himselt about in his seat and glared at the young man. "Young man," said he, "did you ever try listening to a play with your mouth shut?" Money by another name would be as hard to get. Clever people think that money is everything; "people who are cleverer still know th..t it is not. Many a damsel who is a kitten witii men is a cat with women. If we grew bald in proportion as we grow wise some of us would still be upholstered a foot thick on top.

The Bishop's Retort. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914
The Bishop's Retort. A certain worthy bishop was foad of a quiet smoke, and he did not think that the habit was out of keep ing with his high office. The arch deacon of the diocese, however, thought differently, and did not hesi tate to proclaim his opinion. On one occasion the archdeacon was. the guest of the bishop, and preached at the cathedral evening service. Ha\> ing returned to the episcopal palace, he was gazing from the library win dow, when he detected- the bishop walking in the garden below,- and smoking a cigar, as he thought, in safe privacy. "Ah, Bishop," said the archdeacon, as he opened-the window, "so I have caught you burning incense to . the devil." "Perhaps you have," retorted the. bisliop; "but I didn't know he was so .near." . , . .." • The man who is in love -with him self is in danger o£ .making a mesal liance.

Waiting for the Message. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 3 October 1914
Waiting for the Message. A schoolmaster was giving a lesson on physiology, and he told his pupils that whenever they moved an arm or a leg, it was in response to a message from the brain. " Tile bruin, always sends a mes sage down your arm or leg whenever you wish to move it," he said. Latc-r in the lesson a pupil misbe haved himself, and was told to come to the front of the class. "Mold out your hand," ordered the teacher. The boy did not move. "Did you not hear me tell you to hold out your hand?" asked the schoolmaster, with asperity. "Yes, sir," replied the youth, "but I'm waiting for the message from my brain."
