NURSERY NOTES. THINGS A MOTHER SHOULD KNOW [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 29 January 1908

?' ?'.' HTOSEBY tfOTES ?? /V; THINGS A MOTHER BHOUED KNOW That babies should not be. dandled or danced immediately after being fed. This often causes them to vomit That condensed milk should not be used as a continuous, food for babies. It Is very useful as an occasional food— during spells of hot weather, for In stance—but for continual use it Is too sweet and often gives rise to eczema. It is also too fattening. It is a mistake to suppose that a very fat baby is ne cessarily a very healthy one. Very fat children often have not much 'staying power.' That the water with which a baby's food Is made should . be previously' boiled. l That If any food is left in the L bottle after a meal it should not be used again by the baby. The bottle most be scalded out and fresh food made for the next meaL :. ~ . ' , . That 'meat should never be given to children under three years old, unless scraped— not ? minced.

CARE OF WINDOW PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 5 February 1908

CARE OF WINDOW PLANTS. Bright window plants are a welcome addition to any sitting-room, and parti cularly so during the summer months. Plants which appear sickly are suffer ing, In nine cases out of ten, from pure starvation. Probably they have been growing in the same mould for one, two, or ever three years. All nutriment has consequently become quite exhausted, An old pair of gloves will usefully pro tect the hands. We will assume that j the re-ppttlng Is done indoors, say on the kitchen table, which has first been covered with two or three sheets of newspaper. The new eoll should be ar ranged in a stna.ll heap at one end of the table, and the plants to be dealt with at the other. Good medium loam is best Cor most plants. A small quantity may be pur chased at any nurseryman's for a trifle, or, if you have a garden, let It b? freshly taken from there. It must be quite fine. A medium condition is best, neither too wet nor too dry. If purchasing from a nurseryman, tell him the partic...

ELIMINATING THE GERM. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 5 February 1908

EUMIHATING THE GERM. Exli.. live experiments conducted at Storre, U.S.A., for the purpose of dls^ ! covering how the germ content of milk might be reduced led to the following j conclusions:— , . ' L Feeding hay and dry grain just be- ( fore or at milking time fills the atmos- j phere o£ the stable with dust This' dust then settles into the milk pail, car- j rylng bacteria with It, thus inci casing i the germ content of the milk.
