INCREASING CALF REARING IN THE UNITED KINGDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 2 December 1914
INCREASING CALF REARING IN THE UNITED KINGDOM. Various circumstances in the United Kingdom have recently combined to direct attention to tlie desirability of rearing a larger number of cons so as to insreaso the homo supply of fat and store cattle. There is first of all, tho improved prices for beef, which are likely to cotinuo, because the farmers of North America have practically ceased to contribute . this article to British markets, and the States non compete for a portion of the surplus from South America. So far the Argentine has been able to meet the demand, but tliero are indications that it may be found difficult to maintain the output on the necessary scale. Tlie meetings of several of the South Am erican companies have shown that pro fits have diminished owing to the high er value of tlie cattle, and unless there is a substantial profit, the impetus to he requisite largo expansion will be lacking. Then ,the interruption of trade from Ireland, owing to the foot and mouth q...
PROFITABLE AND UNPROFITABLE COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 2 December 1914
PROFITABLE AND UNRROFIT ' ABLE COWS. Onl.V ft .rich man con afford to keep' unprofitable cows. Sometimes it is said that a man, i.nless lie is well-off, cannot afford to own good cows, but that is not true. If lie can afford to own any, ho can afford to own the best. The man who refuses to take the necessary steps to secure a good cow. must work double time to get any profit ,and wait years before he can breed up to a higher standard. It has to be realised at the beginning that it is bettor to put all the money in hair a dozen good cows, than in a dozen inferior ones. The profits of dairying depend entirely upon the cows and the system of raising feed and gving it to the animals. It lias been proved that good, not fancy bred, cows have made £10 profit per year, net for their own ers. after the cost of feed had been de ducted, and all other charges. If one good cow will make that profit, a herd of 10 or 20 should net a fairly good income. This can be done in almost any region where g...
LIME WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 2 December 1914
LIME WATER. The most serviceable method of util ising liine in the dairy.s in the form of lime water, which may be used indis criminately and with the utmost free dom. It is iimoculoits or non-poison ous, and its use will not injure milk or cream in any degree. Lime is a necessary constituent of the hard and soft tissues of the body. Slaked lime is but sparingly soluble in water. A saturated solution is found only to con tain 10 grains to the pint, or about .1 too spoonful to a gallon of water, and this knowledge J uiders its preparation very simple ill the dairy. No mutter how much lime may bo placed in a tank or cask and filled up, the water will only dissolve or absorb a certain amount. Allow it to settle. When it becomes clear, odourless solution, with an earthy, fuline, and feeble caus tic ^taste. "When the cask oe tank is empty, fill it up again, stir veil, and allow it to settle, and use as before. Eventually the lime becomes dissolved and exhausted, and. this can bo de tecte...

LORD KITCHENER'S INFLUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 2 December 1914
LORD KITCHENER'S INFLUENCE. When driving one day in Egypt. Lord Kit&lt;4iener noticed an old man in the street, whom he recognised as an acquaintance from the Soudan. 'Die ConBul-General ordered the driver to stop, and invited tho old man to take a seat in tho carriage. So tho two drove together through the town to tho place to which the Soudanese want ed to go.

"I should s :,lke to drive out with Lord Kitchener once more," the old man replied. "Why?" the tfiicer asked.

MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Oorro»pondent.) Wo aro all farmers when it comes to the pinch. Many whoso holdings range from a suburban tenement on a lot "Oft. by 5l)ft. to a sumptuous suito of offices in Collins-street, do not realise it until the country is in tho throes of a drought, but the fact has been brought homo to all during tho past l'ow months. There is none ho high or low in tho scale who have not come to understand something of the personal interest 1 everyone lias in the farm. Consequently tho rejoicing wheu the rain oame was general in the widest sense of the term j and by no meaus perfuuetory. Of course it came too late to raise the cloud of depression that has settled upon the ronwnunity as a result of tho lean year, but it is recognised that it ameliorates tho positiou of many of those on the laud in some measure at least, and we are accordingly thankful for the portion of tho loaf that came down with those stoad}', soaking show ers.

TOO WELL KNOWN TO REED AN "AD." [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 9 December 1914
IOQ WELL KKOWH TO REED AN "AO." This idea that you have lived so long in town that everybody knows you and you don't need 'o advertise is a mistake. This very indifference to advert'sing, indifference to doing business as a is done in this day and age, is what has enabled the catalogue or mail ordei houses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant who can convince the people of his section, and keep them convinced that his store if. ^ the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade to the mail ordet house. Of course he cannot afford'to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible but he can keep an advertisement in his I local paper, and see that it is changed, thus keeping new bargains continually befor the public. -He should also have a mailing list, and send out a circulai letter at least once a month. Don'l look upon your country newspaper as an object of charity. There is not a single country newspaper in the State, with A general local circulation,...
