Profit on Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 22 May 1914

" Profit ?dn Pigs. Mr D. Ball, farmer of I,isiuore, recently 'Uetennm'ed to try an ex periment. He had on hand a lot of barley atid wheat seconds. For the barley , be was offered 2/3 per bushel bags included, delivered iu Melbourne Instead of selling his barley and wheat secour'.s he set about converting them into bacou. He bought 45 store pigs in the Colac market,, when stores were selling at fairly high rates, trucked I theui to L,isiiiore, and fed them with as much meal as .they would take. Ten weeks after they were bought the pigs yvere sold agaiu in the Colac market. The top pen brought 1,4 7s 6d per head,-and the whole draft averaged 1,4 per head. After paying all expenses, including 10 weeks feeding, Mr Ball made a profit of U 0s l)d per pig; or, ex pressing it in other terms, he got 5s-6d per bushel for his grain in stead of 2s, plus a quantity of valu able manure. Had the pigs been bred by Mr Ball- instead of being bought as stores -the profit would have been considerably h...

GIRLS' HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 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 the ends where a 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. It is unwise to trust the daily comb ing of a little girl's hair entirely to die nurse, certainly not without fre quent overlooking. Hasty combing injures. the hair by breaking it. It 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 lias not oeen proper. It is possible to brush out a tangle of locks and scarcely lose a hair, but it takes care and patience. 1c is also unwise to wash the hair too often, as it makes it dry and brit tle. Profuse perspir...

Military Tournament. CONFERENCE AT ECHUCA. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 22 May 1914

Military Tournament. CONFERENCE AT ECHUCA. Recently the Echuca branch of the Natioual Defence Association held a meeting for'the purpose of considering the arrangement for the annual tournament, says the Riverine Herald. It was stated that Deuiliquiu desired the sports to be held in that town this year, and that Rochester's views should be obtained. Eventually it was deci ded that a conference of representa tives from Echuca, Rochester, and Deuiliquiu should be held to, dis cuss the question. The Deniliquiu Muuicipal council was written to, asking that dele gates should be sent, and the letter came before that body at its meet ing on Monday. The Mayor said the tournament was held last year .at Echuca. It was then understood that it should be held this year in Deuiliquiu, but since then the Ro chester people had asked that it should be held in that town. Aid. Fitzuead thought it very necessary that Deniliquiu should be represen ted. They . were justly entitled to have the spoils here...

MAROONED ON A DESERT ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 22 May 1914

MAROONED ON A DESERT ISLAND, An amusing story of a Dutch cast awisy is told. In. the days when the islahd of St. Helena was an unpeopled waste, long before the coining of tb« great exilo who has made its name famous, a Dutch vessel, returning from the West Indies, cast anchor off it? coast. In a short wliilo a boat was lowered. The occupants, besides the crew, were a dead officer in a coffin and a downcast seaman in irons. This •eaman, for some .offence against dis cipline, had been condemned to deal); "by the- captain; but, in consequence of id appeal for mercy signed by his messmates, was ordered to be marooned m this desolate island, instead of being hung up to the yard-arm. It is probable that oven this graco would have been denied him but for the dead officer, for whose burisl the sh p put into harbour, the grave .was dug; the officer buried; the crew departed: the ship weighed anchor. The Dutchman, on his side, lost no time. Ho opened tho newly made grave, dragged out the coff...

BRIGHT DRESSES FOR DARK DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 22 May 1914

BRIGHT DRESSES FOR DARK DATS. When tli® organs of the body arc lifted- up, the chin raised, tho chost high, courage and hope are indicated. Tbe mind follows. It is true that, a woman keeps her head up because she is hopeful; but, eren if hop© is iva til ing, lift up the head, and it will come Che sooner. On a. dark day, put on the brightest and prettiest gown, and cheerfulness follows. It is difficult for cheerfulnes; to express itself in sombre surroundings. If one does not feel like laughing, lift the corners of the mouth, and sh< laughs perforce. Nobility lias difficulty to express it self in a sunken chest.

III. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 22 May 1914

III. The. bruit of death stirred the vil lage/ and sent many of its poorest people toe the doors of -. the Rock House that night They owed much to the generosity of the 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 he left the house with Vaguna at midnight. ''He is dead, my friends—God rest his soul." So truly had the child-wife dreamed—so were her words justi fied. Down at the hotel where the three strangers waited for the tidings, the doctor excused himself with what fair . pleas he could, and said that it was a case of syncope and should have been expected. The terror of the trance might have contributed to, it, but the drug had been the active agent. The, stricken man would have burst the unseen bonds which robbed him of life, but the effort had culmin ated in death. There could be no doubt of that—the scalpel answered for it beyond all question.

THE POULTRY YARD. FOOD FOR LAYING HENS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 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 ieties, of te^in a meal, and seldom two meals alike. Hence we seldom see a sickly 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 be going. Rations for laying hens should be 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 be combined to gether for a meal, providing bran be in all, and one other meal with one of vegetable and one meat. About twelve ounces per weight in the morning for ten laying fowls with about one pound to fifteen ounces of grain in the even ing, ...

VENTILATION IN FOWL HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 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 feeling like a fighting-cock. You have had ventila tion. Open your window an inch and your door an inch, and morning will find you sniffling like an old nag with 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 fowi 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.

MECHANICAL MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 22 May 1914

MECHANICAL MANAGEMENT. So much has 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 see 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 •(killed mechanic may be 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 ali...

FINISH IT. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 22 May 1914

FINISH IT. When Samuel P. B. Morse, after wards famous as tlie inventor o£ the electric telegraph, was a young-paint er studying in London, lie made a drawing fr6m a small cast of the Far nese Hercules, intending to offer it to Benjamin West as an example of his work. Being anxious for the favorable opinion of the master, he spent a fort night upon the drawing, and thought he had made it perfect. When Mr. "West saw the drawing, he examined it critically, commended it in this and that particular, then handed it back, saying:— "Very well, sir, very well; go on and finish it." "But it is finished," said the young artist. "Oh, no!" said Mr. West. "Look here, and here, and here," and he put his finger upon various unfinished places. Mr. Morse saw the defects, now that they were pointed out to him, and devoted another week to remedy ing them. Then he carried the draw ing again to the master. Mr. West was evidently much pleased, and lav ished praises upon the work; but at the end he handed...

FEEDING FOR FEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 22 May 1914

FEEDING FOR FEATHER. Feeding poultry for feather is a 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^rhis 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 toe taken that the pigmen tary quality of the food is not injur ious to the 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 Its 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 fact...

Boxing Room. PROTEST BY WOMEN. MR MURRAY UNSYMPATHETIC. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 26 May 1914

Boxing Room. PROTKST BY WOMEN. MK MUHRAY UN8YMPA- - TIIETIO. In their attack on the ancient and noble att of .self defence the members of the Women's Christian Temperance Union are not likely to receive any influential support from the sterner sex. The Chief Secretary (Mr Murray), who is the political head of the police force, stated on Friday that he was en tirely lacking in sympathy with the women's protest. He was present on Saturday at the match between the American boxer, Saylor, and Kay, the young Victorian, and saw nothing to which the least objec tion could be taken. "So far from being evidences of barbarism aud a proof of a low moral toue in the community," continued Mr Murray, "boxing contests are spleudid physical exer cises. There is no cleaner or bet ter sport. The police have the power to step in and stop any light which degenerates into an orgy of brutality. Before women utter a protest against a manly pastime they should at least take the trouble to understand it. Ho...

The Orchard. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 26 May 1914

The Orchard. Cultivation work should be well 011 the way by this time. The ploughing should be advaucecl, so as to leave plenty of time for other o/chard work. The autumn plough ing may Se as rough as possible,, taking care to plough "to!" the trees so that the drainage furrow is left between the rows. It is just probable, where heavy crops have been carried, that a top dressing of stable, manure will be required to add h mil us to the soil. The fertility of the soil must be maintained, and, although stable and chemical manures as a general rule are of undoubted value as tree stimulants, well cultivated and thoroughly tilled laud will always carry fair crops, and with far less mauure than otherwise. Also, if the orchard land is well and thor oughly drained, cultivated, and sub-' soiled, any rnauures that are used will be far more beneficial to the trees. The more suitable conditions that are given to the trees, the better they can appreciate and as similate their food." Perhaps the ...

Some Food Values. In one way tbe rise in food prices, particularly iu the cost of meat, j tnay be a blessing in disguise. It may force us to study food values, i and to consider whether we cannot devise a diet more economical, nutritious and wholesome than our present one. There is a matter 1 about which all authorities on dietetics agree, aud that is that Australians eat too much meat. Even in town we would do well to adopt a semi-vegetarian diet, in which meat, as in France, is used iu small quantities. In our climate it is not advisable to eat meat more than once a day, aud it is positively foolish to eat it more thau twice a day. It is iu the country, above ail that reform is most needed. I» shearing sheds^ and iu homesteads of farmers, aud even of many wealthy squatters,mutton for break fast, mutton for ,dinner and mutton for tea is tbe unvarying menu from 1st January to 31st December.
