TELEGRAPHIC ERRORS. " DROPPED DOTS AND DAS HES. '.'Telegraphic errors made by Post OfBec servants during the course of a year must, - at the lowest estimate, mean a loss of tens of thousands of pounds to the public, to say nothing of the extreme annoyance and incon venience to which business, men arc put in consequence." . This was the comment of a large city ..merchant on a case recently de cided at JLowostoft, arising out . * of a telegram ordering "one'' barrel of herrings being altered in.transmission to-"nine." ' An attempt was made to hold . .the Postmaster-General liable for the mistake of iiis servants, but without success. , . "'An agent ordered -5000 '.-summer blouses," the merchant stated.

FAHWJWP flSUtt. Treatment of "Dry Bible.'*'. ■air Williams, Government Inspector of Stock, South Australia, has been ;on a visit to Orroroo, lor the purpose of in specting stock suffering from "dry bible." Two bad cases were dealt .with. The post-mortem examination showed that particular parte oE the stomach were badly impacted, th- lause of the disease being directly traced to the fib rous food which the animals had been unable to digest. "The disease is chiefly to be found in milking cows, and much can be done," says the inspector, "to pre vent It by feeding them on chaff soaked for 12 hours. The animals should be fed twice a day. Each feed should consist of fi-om 5 to 7 lb of soaked chaff, to which should be added one pint of mo lasses, two fiuarts of bran, and one de sertspoonful of salt. In cases where the trouble is suspected a drench should be given of from 10 to 12 0z of salts, mixed with a pint of molasses, and given in half a gallon of tepid water. In early stages this may...

Mi[?]ed Artificial Mannres. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 28 January 1910

Mijfctl Artificial Manures. Referr ng to the question whether the ingr idients of artificial manures can be best mixed together on the farm or bought ilready mixed as a complete, manure ; from the manufacturer, was dealt wi>th in a recent address by an agricultural expert in Scotland. His opinion jvas that the mixtures sold by merchants had several advantages to compensate for their drawbacks. First of ali, the mixing of the ingredients at manure works was much more thorough and efficacious than could be done on the farm, because farmers had not the - requisite machinery. For the same reason they could be more cheaply mixed at the manure works and could be sent out in a liner state of division. Another great advantage la the mixed manures sold by merchants was that they were prepared for the re quirement's of each particular crop. Ma nure. merchants deserved very great cre dit for this. They seemed to have escaped altogether the idea, which pre vailed so widely, and .was so essen...

It is incomparably superior to light soil, and responds to generous treatment. What does this mean? It is not necessary to discuss either theory or practice here, but a word on the prin ciple Involved is essential. We are all aware that without food the live stock of the farm can neither live nor bring forth their increase, i.e.j meat, milk, wool, or young. They consume the herb age of the field. That herbage in its turn Is the result of the growth' of the plants producing it, and of their osslmi- , lat...

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MILK SUPPLIERS. A bulletin issued by Dairy and Food Commissioner, State of Michi gan, U.S.A., gives in plain language instructions for the care of milk for dolivery at butter factories. It im presses upon dairy farmers the value of cleanliness. 1 The following are extracts from the bulletin:— The value of milk is lessened if it becomes tainted from any cause. Milk is very easily tainted, and will ab sorb bad odors if allowed to, stand in a polluted atmosphere' for any length of time. To prevent this, as soon as the milking is done, the milk should be removed from the stable into a place that has a reasonably pure atmosphere. CAUSES OF HAD MILK, Most of the bad milk' received at factories is: caused by bacteria, mi croscopic organisms, which, get into the milk 'and multiply so rapidly that they are capable of greatly lessening the value of the milk in a short time. iiacteria are everywhere pro: sent, yet they are most abundant in filthy, dark, damp places.
