THE BEEKEEPER. KEEP THE COLONIES STRONG AND PREVENT ROBBING. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
THE BEEKEEPER. KEEP THE COLONIES STRONG AND PREVENT ROBBING. The possibility is that if the bees are allowed to swarm at their own will, there will be a number of weakcolonies and pos sibily some which are queenless. These weak colonies are a nuisance in general in the apiary, as they cannot gather enough food for themselves, let alone store a surplus, and if fed enough for the winter they often dwindle away so that by spring a mere handful remains or none at all. The only way to utilise them pro fitably is to unite them until we have strong colonies. ROBBING. Those colonies that lost their queen. while in the swarming excitement, mus: now be looked after or they will make trouble. Aftcer being queenless for some time they become discouraged and will not properly defend their hives, so that very often robbing will be started and sometimes the melee will continue until all the weak colonies are done up and there is meanwhile a reign of terror in the neighborhood of the apliary. The b...
GOD LEADETH ME. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
GOD LEADETH ME.

Through many a thorny path He leads lty tired feet; Through nmany a path of tears I go; But it is sweet To lknow that Hle is close to me, My God, my Guide; lIe leadeth me, and so I walk I Quite satisfied. To blind my eyes, Hie may revena No light at all; nut while I lean on his strong arm I cannot fall. 1
Ten Times Ten. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
Ten Times Ten. Ten hens in a house that is 10 feet uquare, with yards ten times the size of the house, is a rule to go by. Ten hens with one male is the correct mating, and ten egs under a sittinr hen in win ter are enough. Ten weeks are long enough to keep a broiler before it goes to market. A pair of ducks or fowls should weigh not over ten pounds; 10 cents per pound is near the average price for fowls in market, and 10 cents should feed a hen one month.
Don't Overfeed. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
Don't Overfeed. Be careful about the quantity of food given to the pullets Lon't overfeed.

DOGS FOR HAULAGE PURPOSES. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 8 November 1898
DOGS FOR HAULAGE PURPOSES. A recent visitor to Belgium was much struck by the number of line ldogs used there for road locomotion, and in the course of a communication to the "Road" upon his experience, he says:-"In this wes:ern portion of Belgium, including the two Flanders, the dog has been employed 'beIyornd the memory of man' as a beast of burden. Everywhere in the city and in the country he may be seen employed in what may be generally described as small teaming. He is a characteristic fea:ure of life, and to the Felming abroad there Is always something missing-his familiar servant, the dog. The Belgium dog-the breed is only known by this name-is a large, compactly-built ani mal. When standing he measures in height from 20 to 30 inches; the hair is smooth and short, generally tan or dark brown in color. Both the tall and ears of this fine animal are cut short. the for mer, because it is believed that the strength which would otherwise enter into this extremity is retained in th...
