CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 April 1914

CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. The value of the cabbage as a feed for dairy cows is fairly generally known. It is a succulent feed, is highly relished by cows, is an ex cellent milk producer, and is rich in protein. But whilst its value is r'a lised, many dairy farmers have a rooted obection to it on account of its liability to impart an undesirable flavor to milk and butter. This ques tion is dealt with by a writer in a recent issue of "Hoard's Dairyman." After observing that the only objec tion to feeding cabbage to milch cows is the flavor imparted to the milk, he proceeds to point out that, when fed under certain conditions, this objectionable feature can be avoided. One of the first precautions to observe is to keep the cabbage away from the shed at milking time. Milk absorbs odors very quickly indeed, and if the cabbage odors are near the milk it will be tainted. An other precaution to observe is not to feed the cows just before milking: any high-flavored feed, in fact-tur nips for e...

Ak Dyspeptic's Life Saved. -0 .SVERE PAIN AND SICKNESS FOR MIANY YEARS CURED BY A I SIMPIE ANTACID. -0 NEIGHBOURS SAID HE WAS A DYING MAN. Chronic indigestion and sickness after food and severe pains were all quickly cured by a very simple remedy in the case of Mr R. Savi gan, 11 Gloucester Street, Bariard town, Newport, Mon. In a letter referring to her husband's illness, Mrs Savigan writes :-" He did not know what it was to eat a meal without it coming back," which appears to have been his condition for a considerable time, until his wife, while reading a ladies' paper, saw ordinary bisurated magnesia recommended for indigestion, and. obtained a small quantity so that her husband might try it. A few doses gave Mr Savigan great relief, and before be had finished the first supply the trouble was practically ctired. To use Mrs Savigan's own words: " He can eat his food and is looking splendid, and can do his work; in fact, all the people-about here look at him, for they all said he w...

THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 April 1914

THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. As an intance of the numbers of bacteria the common fly can carry, the following figures given by Pro fessor Easton may be cited: - He caught 100 flies in a kitchen, put them in a pint of sterilised water and rinsed them about, and then examined the water, and found that lie had rais ed such a number of bacteria off that each fly averaged over 300,000. He next caught, a similar number in the cow barn, and they averaged over 800,000 each, another 100 in the pig pen, and they averaged over 1,000,000 each. It may be said that when one goes into a factory or house and- finds many flies, one is immediately justi fied in condemning the sanitary sur rcundings of such premises. One can appreciate the fact that in factories where flies abound it is next to im possible to keep them out of the milk, and the seeding of the milk by the bacteria which they carry must be very appreciable. The evil deeds of the fly need emphasising, as too many of us seem to think the fly a ne...

HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 April 1914

HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. The man, or woman, who wants to be as good-looking as nature will per. mit is given a few practical hints in the "Family Doctor": Don't eat your meals quickly; this causes indigestion and a red nose. Don't worry; other people's troubles are quite as bad as yours. Don't forget that a penny spent on fruit does more good than a shilling on buns or sweets. Don't walk five miles one day and stay at home all the next. Don't read till midnight; one hour's sleep before twelve is worth five afterwards. Don't shut your bedroom window; fresh air is necessary for health. Don't expect physics and tonics to keep you well if you neglect the laws of health and hygiene.

The Druids were the first society to give, away £1,000 for is.

"I don't want a 'shine, my;1lad,' said he, '"but if you'll go and wash your face I'll give you a sixience." "A'richt, sir," was the lad's reply, as he went over to a neighboring fountain and made his ablutions. Re turning, he held out his hand for the money. "Well, my lad," said the professor, "you have earned your sixpence. Here it is." "I dinna want it, auld chap," return I ed the boy, with a lordly air. "Ye keep it and get yer hair cut."

"A Regiment of Two." [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 April 1914

" A Regiment of Two." On Saturday night there was a very appreciative audience at the lecture hall, when the Koroit All Star. Dramatic Co. put on the humorous and sparkling comedy above-named. The piece was very well chosen, there being nothing in it too difficult or ambitious for the performers, and it went with a ''go" fronm start to finish. There was an entire absence of those objectionable waits, with which amateur companies have made us familiar. The heaviest work of the piece fell to the two theo retical warriors, Arthur Sewall and Ira Wilton (Messrs O'Neill and Laurati) who gave capable. de lineations of their parts. Eliza Walton (Miss M. Smith) could not have been in better hands. The fun of the play was supplied by Mr J. Duffus, and as usual, he kept his audience in good humor from start to finish. All the other characters were well pour trayed. Following is the cast: Arthur Sewall (a theoretical war rior), Mr R. O'Neill; Ira Wilton (his father-in-law, another), Mr R. B. La...

It is almost certain that. Eccles, M'Grath and Gray will appeal to to the A.JC. Com mittee. Wallalo was a much-fancied candidate for the Sydney Cup, to be run on Easter Monday.
