PULLING BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 16 December 1914

PULLING BACK. : A .vary uunoying luibit of young horses, and one easily acquired, is that of pulling back when tied by a" halter. It is.usuully due to some scare whilst iinpcrfectly aceustomed to the head gear, aud leads to the breakage of ropes aud reins, and sometimes aerious in jury to the animal itself, for wJien re strained -by strong head ropes horses accustomed to breaking ordinary ropes will throw themselves about danger ously, or may injure their nock. To overcome the hubit, use a strong halter with a metal ring under the chin. Lea ther halters of this pattern are com monly purchasable. Tie a loop that wiil ♦ uofc slip ut one end oi' a piece of ^-iu. rope; place the rope around the horse just in front uj' the hips, with thb loop under the belly; run the l'ree end through the loop, then u» between the forelegs, up through the ring in the halter, around a solid post, and back, and tie into tin; ring on the halter.

The loaiers, tiie cows that consume more than they return, are quickly spotted and eliminated when the cow test is used. .No successful merchant bundles a lino of goods ou which ho loses money; likewise, no progressive dairyman will keep a cow on wiiich he does not inuko a pro tit. The milking of cows is u straight business proposi tion, and. no farmer can atiord to spend his own time, or pay high priced labor to milk cows which do not pay. for their board. Let's make the return per cow our standard. To build up a profitable herd the cow is indispensable. It enables the dairyman to quickly get a high pro ducing herd by selecting heifers irom ; only iho best cows.

THE PROFIT OF THE COW. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 16 December 1914

I. . I THE PROFIT OF THE COW. "Wo liear a groat doal about tile pro fit from "milking" cows, 'l'lie subject is uot broad enough; it should be ' "i'loiit in keeping cows." Alauy who "keep" cows place a value on tho cow in proportion only to the' creuin cheque they receive. In other words, they value her simply on the basis of tho cash that the ueuui briugs. . If the cream cheque does not pay for tho labor of lhilkmg and feed ing her, then the conclusion is that sho is not protitable. - Wo do not believo this is correct. Suppose we examine all the sources of revenue. First, the butter-fat from tho cow sold to the creamery at a fixed price is expressible in terms of cash. . Second, a portion of the whole milk used to feed the calf after its birth until sucli timo as it is able to be sup ported on skim milk and othor feeda. This is worth, for feeding purposes, as much aa any whole milk tfio cow gives. Third, on ovory iarm there is u cer tain amount of tho milk and cream used by tho fami...

IN THE FOWL YARD. Poultrvmeu will do well to grow as much of their poultry food as possible, aii.-l thus keep down the feed bill dur ing the period of high prices. A food which can be easily grown anywhere, '■ nil which is of high food value, and much relished by the birds, is sunflower seed. The hoads should bo plucked before they are quite ripe, and well dried to prevent moulding. Crushed, it cau.be added to the soft feed, and in the seed it may bo added to the other grain supplied.

BIG MARRIAGE AGENCY. THE LARGEST IN THE WOULD. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 23 December 1914

BIG MARRIAGE AGENCY. THE LARGEST IN' THE WOULD. America, the land ol the big, is beaten in one thing by Ucr sister re public. The biggest, mo=t aristo cratic, far-reaching end ambitious matrimonial agcncy in the world flourishes in France. This agency purports to be philan thropic, religious, partly loyalistic and partly Imperialistic. When I say it is Imperialistic I mean that it does not exclude the nobility who owe their patents to the Napoleons. But by far the greater number of nobles whose names are inscribed on these golden books are mtn who would welcome the Duke d'Orleans as their king. The Naundorf pretenders, who claim to be descended from Louis XVI. and Marie Antoinette, are not taken seriously by the nobili ty of France. Our blue-blood agency seeks fortune solely in the one country where they are biggest-and most plentiful. In the United States of America there are some 10,009 millionaires and multi-millionaires.
