IS CLIPPING SAFE? [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 July 1914
IS CLIPPING SAFE? It is not uncommon among dairy cows to find the udder covered with a dense growth of long hairs, which, although they may be of some protec tion to the udder, nevertheless, from the standpoint of sanitation and com fort to the cow during milking, are a detriment. Under ordinary farm con ditions they are generally covered with filth, and even in the best-kept dairies, unless clipped, collect some dust and filth. Furthermore, because of their location, it is highly probable that some of them will find their way into the milk pail during milking. In order that such condtions may not oc cur, these hairs should be clipped close once or twice each year, there by preventing collection of filth and permitting greater ease in washing the udder.
MANURING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 July 1914
MANURING POTATOES. Potatoes, like all other crops, re quire a complete manure, viz., a ma nure containing nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash, lime also if the soil is deficient in this necessary consti tuent. Nitrogen may be used in var ious forms-blood and bone, sulphate of ammonia, or nitrate of soda. If the first is used, it is better to apply it at the time of planting, as it is much slower in its action than either of the others; the sulphate of am monia is sometimes applied at plant ing time also, but it is better applied afterwards as a top dressing when the plants are two or three inches high. With regard to nitrate of soda, this is so extremely soluble that it should only be applied when the crop is near ly ready for earthing up. Phosphates may be used in various forms, super, bonedust, or slag, according to the nature of the soil or the particular fancy of the user. In any case, a lib eral dressing is necessary. Potash is best applied in the form of sulphate of potash, a...
LADIES' COLUMN. WHERE FASHIONS NEVER CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 July 1914
LADIES' COLUMN. WHERE FASHIONS NEVER CHANGE. There are hundreds of thousands of women in Europe to-day who have never seen a fashion book. There are young girls to whom Easter has never meant new hats or spring styles, but just the time to leave off two winter petticoats and the heavy woollen stockings. There are rosy-cheeked maids who make their dresses after the models their great-grandmothers wore. And there is a great charm in: the simpli city of the gaily-colored costume, as one sees it on a happy young girl singing at sunrise in the fields or bringilg hlome the baskets of fish at sunset. In Brittany tile wooden shoes or sabots, so long considered a' distin guishing feature of Holland, are uni versally. worn-perhaps more so than in Holland. For there is a growing tendency to discard the old custom. But in Brittany the people are super stitious to an intense degree and seem to regard it as a religious duty that they shall still wear the costumes of their ancestors and continue t...
DON'T WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 July 1914
DON'T WORRY. Live in the present, deal with the present, master the present, make the most and Ibest of the passing hour, and don't waste it.by distressful re grets about the past, or paralysing fears about the future. Grip the ever present now. By this thorough-going concentration on to-day you are most completely redeeming your yester days, and doing your best for your possible but uncertain to-morrows. It is of no use *crying over spilt milk; it is of no use to grieve concern: ing what is absolutely inevitable or irretrievable, and because the events and relationships of your life will not run smoothly. If you have done your best, an angel could do no more. If you have an evil day approach ing, an unpleasant hour in front of you, or any-kind of disagreeable duty or engagement whatever, meet it without delay. It is better, as a rule, to voluntarily face it sooner, than be compelled to do so later. Be like the man .in the moon-he sees a lot .but never says a word.
WHY YOU SHOULD MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 July 1914
WHY YOU SHOULD MARRY. We deplore the fact that, because of the fearful extravagances of modern society, many of our best people con clude that they cannot possibly afford to get married. We are getting a fearful crop of old bachelors. They swarm around us. They go through life lop-sided. Half-dressed, they sit around sewing on buttons, and darning socks, and then go down to a long boarding house table which is bounded on the north and south and east and west by the Great Sahara Desert. We do not pity them at all. May all their buttons be off to-morrow evening! Why do they not set up a plain home of their own and come into the Ark two by two? The supporting of a wife is looked upon as a great horror. Why, dear friends, with right and healthy no tions of time and eternity, it is very easy to support a wife if she be of the kind worth supporting. If she be educated into false notions of refine ment, and have "young ladies' Col lege" piled on her head till she be an imbecile, you will n...
PIG MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 July 1914
PIG MEMS. Get the sows and little pigs out on the ground as soon as possible. The shelters should be in good con dition, and warm, .dry beds of cut straw provided. The shelters should be so construct ed that when the sows and little pigs are in them they will be protected from wind and wet. The pens should be closed on three sides and open to the south. Dqn't leave the pigs out in the cold. Do not let them become thin and emaciated.

FOR THE FARMER. BETTER FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 July 1914
FOR THE FARMER. BETTER FARMING. More and more careful systematic methods of farming are rapidly gain ing ground in this country. The in creased price of land makes such es sential to success, and no known sys tem will put farming on a better basis than following Nature's method of keeping up the fertility of the land, and in a great measure this is what green manuring is. Dame Nature had no plough to turn under the fall ing leaves of the bush hills, but she left time to do the work, and it is the accumulated humus so formed from which our bush farmers are reaping their returns to-day. On much of our land fertilisers will ,be required to produce a good crop for ploughing- in, for it is poor econ omy to plough in a poor one. Money so spent will be returned a hundred fold, and the permanent fertility of the land built up. On heavy land the ploughing in of such crops as peas, vetches, clover, etc., is particularly valuable, for doing so often converts an unkindly difficult-to-work land ...

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T.' MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XIX. Sheila might not have allowed Mrs. 3Murphy to leave her so quickly had she not observed Shamus coming to her. "Shamus," she exclaimed, "such a queer old woman has been here. I have just parted from her because she would not stay. She was dressed in lhe style of a hundrP-, .... . ......cu isrr ago, but I think she was really very nice, and she seemed deeply interested in me, Shamus. I found the poor thing with her eyes full of tears and her face scarlet as though she had been crying, and I am sure that O'Donnell was rude to her. Do you know, Sha mus, dear, that she mad such a very. funny request? She begged and im plored of me not to go outside of the grounds unless I had someone with me. Of course, if you were at home I should be quite all right, but that darling The O'Doyle does not care to wal...
CLIPPINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 July 1914
CLIPPINGS, A poultryman's, like a woman's, work is never done. Filth and vermin is the greatest combination against success in the poultry business. If soiled hands will spoil an egg for hatching purposes, do dirty nests and dirty hands have no effect on the eating quality ? Those who have plenty of chickens and eggs to use on their tables when they desire these splendid goods, do not feel the heavy hand of the higher cost of living. Kill the Rooster.-Accordi,g to Bulletin 160, issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. the egg loss of the United States, amounting to 45,000,000 annually, woulil be cut one-half if the male birds were removed after the hatching season, was over. Fertile eggs are subject to rapid deteriora tion, due to the development of blood rings and rots, which takes place even if eggs are given good care on the farm, and by the egg collectors. Infertile eggs are much more resistent to deterioration than those that are fertile, regard less of wherethey are kept....
POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 July 1914
POULTRY NOTES. "Half the breeding goes down the mouth," is a common saying in regard to fowls. Another saying is to the effect that "full and plenty" is the best method of feed ing. Putting the two sayings to gether, we gather that in order to get the best results from our fea thered friends, we have to feed them with good food of a varied nature, so as to suit their peculiar requirements, and also to let them have plenty of it. It is a fact that if a number of birds from some well known plant were divided in to two pens, one pen being fed properly and well, and the other pen fed "just anyhow," a vast dif ference, both in the appearance of the birds, and also the egg yield, would be quickly apparent. The lady whose hens laid eggs which she reckoned cost 3d each was not to be pitied, when she admitted that as soon as they stopped laying she stopped feeding ! We now come to the question of whether moist mash or dry feed is the more suitable, and we have no. hesitation in saying if the...

FEEDING MIXTURE WITH LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 July 1914
FEEDING MIXTURE WITH LUOERNE. What to feed along with lucerne? is a question asked. In reply, where lucerne, green or cured, constitutes the bulk of the feed, oil meals are not necessary. Beet pulp, barley, maize and other feeds rich in carbohydrates, are best adapted to supplement lucerne. Under conditions such as described by a correspondent, we would re commend a mixture of barley 400 lb and bran 100 lb. Feed this at the rate of lib for each 4 to 51b of milk produced daily. Lucerne is in itself a very complete ration. It lacks in variety, and if consumed in too large quantities may cause digestive trouble, particularly if fed alone. One of the best, mix tures to go with lucerne hay is ensilage. Even lucerne ensilage to go with lucerne hay is better than hay alone. Where lucerne hay is grown on the farm and grdin has to be purchased, it js a question of some moment just how much.grain to feed, because, as a rule, the addition of grain brings up the cost of milk out of propor tion ...

TALLYGAROOPNA METHODISTS. OPENING THE NEW CHURCH CROWDED CONGREGATIONS AND IMPRESSIVE SERMONS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 6 July 1914
TALLYGAROOPNA METHO DISTS. OPENING THE NEW CHURCh CROWDED CONGREGATIONS AND IMPRESSIVE SERMONS. The Methodists of the Tallygaroopna district on Sunday were favored with beautiful weather and overcrowded con. gregations in the celebration of long. choriehed hopes-the opening of the new church. For some considerable time the old building had boon found in. nadquato for the requirements of the growing populatien, and action was token with a view to the erection of a much larger and more up-to-date edi fice. Liberal financial support was soon forthcoming, with the result that about two or three months ego the foundation. stone was laid of what' is now a flue brick church, erected on the eastern side if the old wooden building on Mr R Trowin's property at Tall.ygaroopua West. On Sunday the ollicial opening of the noew church took place, and from far and near (in motors, buggies, etc., and on horseback) friends and old members of the congregation who had removed to other parts, came to pa...
