Bill's coffee looked like coal, while The Weary One had in his the added luxury of a small quantity of milk. Wherefore, as they say, did Bill covet the tin of the Weary Qne, and did decide to exchange beverages, should an opportunity occur. "Torkin' of pickpockets," said the Weary.

TWIN-BEARING EWES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 11 July 1914

TWIN-BEARING EWES. A remarkable line of investigation, which is of great interest to aheep breeders, is being pursued by Sir Alexander (J. Bell, at one time geolo gist of ihe Dominion of Canada, on his farm in Nova Scotia. For some ten or twelve years he has been endeavoring to fix a breed of sheep having four or six milking teats, and producing twins at a birth. He noticed that the proportion of sheep having four developed nipples was larger among twin-producing owes, and this started him on his quest for a co-relation between the two. In a few years he produced a strain of ewes which had, as a normal condition, four teats of nearly equal size, ail yielding milk, by mating four - nippled ewes with four-nippled rams. Reversion seldom occurred, and when the strain was once established these I ewes were found to be as fertile as ordinary sheep, if not more so. '

FOR THE FARMER. FARM JOTTINGS.. Public prosperity Is like a tree. Ag riculture is Kb roots; manufacturers and commerco are its branches and leaves.

HENS THAT HATCH FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 11 July 1914

V HENS. THAT HATCH FISH. As is generally known, a big quan tity of fish spawn is annually lost. To avoid this fish-rearers in China care fully collect spawn from the surface of the water, and when they have se cured a sufficient quantity they take a number of hens' eggs, the contents of which have been carefully emptied through a Binall aperture, and refill the shells with the spawn. The holes are then sealed up and the eggs put under broody hens. The hens are al lowed to incubate the eggs for a cer tain number of days, when the eggs are again broken and their contents put into water that has been pre viously warmed by the sun. In a very short Bpace of time the spawn hatches, and the young fry are then kept in pure freBh water until they attain a sufficient size to be put into the ponds containing older fish. The Chinese have long understood all the intricacies of incubation, and were amongst the first to use incuba tors for the hatching of hen eggs, long before such machines were m...
