WHY ALLOW LICE ON YOUR HENS? [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 12 March 1915
WHY ALLOW LICE ON YOUR HENS? (By J. A. Helmrich, Colarado, Agricul tural College.) The estimated offspring from a sin gle pair of lice in eight weeks is 125,000. Lice are insects which inhabit the feathers of the bird.. They have not a piercing mouth, but one that is', used for biting. The louse subsists on the production of the skin and frag ments of feathers. It is not so much what they get as nourishment from the individual that hurts; as the violent itching and paifi they cause, especially if present in large numbers. They also spread as rapidly as they breed. The lice from one individual may spread through the entire flock. Factors which favor their development are poorly ventilated quarters, insuffi cient food and weak stock. 'The bird that looks poor and sickly is the one most likely to be infested. Treatment.-Provide the flock with a dust bath, and apply the following home-made powder:-To one part of crude carbolic acid and three parts of gasoline,, add enough plaster of par...
SOME USEFUL HINTS ABOUT MILKING THE COW. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 12 March 1915
SOME USEFUL HINTS ABOUT MILKING THE COW. By R. R. Kerr (Dairy Supervisor), in "'Journal" of Agriculture." In the minds of most people, includ ing mnany dairymen, very little thought or attention is given to the milking of a cow. Many of the failures at dairy ing. are due.to a lack of knowledge.of this important subject, and when that is missing, the cows soon feel and show the results. They gradually go dry, and, with poor returns, dairying is branded an unprofitable industry, and the cows as duffers. What constitutes a good milker, or by what method a man can get the utmost from a cow leaving out the question of feed-is a matter too often neglected. I regret to state that the.milking of cows on many dairy farms seems to be a secondary consideration, the apparent object be ing to get the cows out of the yard as soon as possible. Now, while it is necessary that *cows should be milked quickly, they must not -be rushed through.' A large majority of our best cows are of a sensitive natu...

SCIENCE IN ANIMAL BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
SCIENCE IN ANIMAL BREEDING. (By Frank A. Hayes, in "Hoard's Dairyman.") In the days of our forefathers, stock breeding was not a science, but was carried on without any knowledge of the great scientific principles that un derlio this great field of activity. The success of the early breeders, cannot but be regarded as remarkable when we consider the great handicap under which they worked. Animal breeding is not only a science but an art as well. In other words, in order to be successf l, a breeder must possess cer tain natural gifts that not all man kind possess, and he must be a student. It is only during the present century that mankind has begun to acquire accurate knowledge of the operation of some of the laws of animal breeding. Since the discovery of 1900 of Mendel's irork in crossing plants, the science of genetics has made rapid strides, and. evidences of the true behaviour of ani mal chairacters are beginning to accu mulate. Any facts bearing upon this important subject tha...

- - THE - MASTER PASSION. (By Lillian Ellerton). - CORAPTER XLIII. FRIENDS! - The blinds were drawn down in No. Jermyn street, but golden rays. fl tered through every chink, and played hereon a glass vase, there on the jewel studded handle of a Turkish pilie, as-.if eager to announce its presence to Cap tain Val Beresford, whenever he chose to take the trouble to open his eyes. With a sigh he awoke, and looked round the room, staring longest at' a fair head which appeared over the back of an armchair, as if he. could not imagine whose it was. The hair was just the same color as SDeverel's, the man whom he had quar relled with; but it was not likely that he would be in the same room with him, when they had not spoken to each ,ther-was it foi weeks or years? How long had he been lying there? It was not his own room, for there were lots of things lying about which had never belonged to him. He was in Lon don, of that he felt quite certain, for there was no freshness in the air which ca...
