Important to Dairymen. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 9 May 1907

Important to Dairymen,, A few practical hints to dairymen of the district which may be found useful when purchasing cows with a view to increasing their herds — By A. Siddins,' Dairy Inspectoi\ Health Department : Comparisons op Beef and Dairy Cattlk. Not frequently it happens that dairymen wlio own fairly large herds or dairy cows, when asked to pick out the best milkers in their herds, fail. They may pick out a second-rate ?cow. 'In one instance I remember a dairyman, when asked to pick out the best milkers, proved his ohoice to be only second .rate .cows, but this' re mark was not made in this district. These errors occur simply because their eyes 'have not been trained- to take in the fine points in their con .firmation. No doubt this subject has been gone into by experts, and very elaborate diagrams have been pre pared -showing the different charac teristics between the 'dairy and beef types. I cannot give a diagram of the two types, but will name a few of 'the important points...

There , was no litter or berilled cushions,', no phinfL nlcs. their tails HpiI i»n with ?bon bows, no spraivling photograph Ic^^B frames. The walls were colored a pale^HP tint, which set, off a few fine engrav ings, there was a piano, and there were W books — books everywhere. A large. ' unwomanly looking writing-table stood in a corner near the fire: a huge pewter inkstand rose conspicuous upon it amid a welter of strewn papers. . The owner of the room sat by the fire, near the tea-table, a rosy IJght falling upon her pale face anj shadowy hair from the reading-lamp. 'Ah! is it you?' she exclaimed, as a tall man entered the room, after a pre liminary knock. , '.'Well! have you done anything? have you heard anything' have you got it?' she said eagerly.

This exhibition forms one of the series that nas taken place year after year on dates made suitable for the harvests of the various British possessions in different parts of the world.

THE DAIRY. WET AND DRY MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 9 May 1907

THE DATOY, WET AND DRV MILKING. The .question of whether the hands shoi/ld be wet when milking frequently j crops up. Cleanliness^ counts for much in successful dairying, and the practice . of over-wetting the hands is responsible ' for a good deal of filth-getting Into milk. Many, however, find it l.lfflcult to extract the fluid with dry hands. A number of good darymen contend that, provided that the hands, are „frquentlyt cleaned during milking-time, no bad results fol low ' wet ' milking. There should, how ever, they admit, be a limit to the am ount of moisture applied, and the teats should be cleaned before the operation begins. A majority of milkers will pro bably be found to assert that it is easier to draw the fluid with damp than with dry hands. Which system is better for the cow is another question that appears difficult to settle The ' Mark Lane Ex press,' referring to the subject, states: — ' One of our correspondents raised an interesting point in a recent issue as to wh...

VALUE OF THE BULL. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 9 May 1907

VALUE OF THE BULL. At n convention of dairy farmers at Wisconsin (U.S.A.). Mr W. J. Giliett, a Holstein breeder, said: 'It is now some time ago since a man came to me and said. 'I have 'oeen trying -to make money out of my herd. They are grade cows, and the best I can get them, to do is 1501b of butter pe.r cow, end I have worked hard.' Then he asked me what he should do, and he said very feelingly: 'I can't stand it to work the year rou-nd for such small results. Shall I sell off these cows and try to get bet ter?' 'I think not,' I said. 'Well, what I shall I do?' I said, 'Go and buy the best bull you can find, amd put him at the head of your herd.' He did so; he paid L-iO for a. fine, prepotent, strong blooded Jersey bull. When the daugh ters of that sire came into milk, at four years of age. the average was -2751b of butter per cow. That is what blood did when bred in the right direction. In one 1 remove from that bull it made a diffe rence cf 1251b of butter per cow.' I ?

CYNTHIA'S DILEMMA. By AGNES S. FALCONER. Cynthia's light fingers moving over the yellow keys of the piano began to slacken their delicate speed— she hesi tated; struck a few stammering notes, halted again, and finally rose and came into the circle of the firelight where her aunt sat knitting. 'I haven't the memory -for music that I used to have,' she said apologetically, kneeling down on the rug. 'I have been neglecting my practice too; I'm forget ting all I ever lea.rnbd.

THE LADIES' COLUMN. HEALTH HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 9 May 1907

THE LADIES' GOLUUN. HEALTH HINTS. . An excellent way to cure and to pre vent sleeplessness is to take a grain or two of camphor just before getting into bed. A cure for neuralgia will be. found in a decoction of salt anil water Boil a pint of water, and while still boiling add to it a quarter of a pint of salt, and keep applying this as hot as possible. A fold ed towel wrung out in hot water will, also sometimes give relief. A swollen face, due to a cold or slight toothache, can be quickly cured by hot poppy fomentations. Buy the poppy 3ieads at the chemist's, boil till they are soft, wring a flannel out of the decoc tion, and apply to the affected part as hot as can comfortably be borne, renew ing as it gets cold. But don't stand ir» ,a draught or go out several hours after ' wards, or the last state will probably be worse than the first. After the fomenta tions are finished, cover the part with cottonwool. By far the best plan is to stay In bed, as then there' is 110' danger of ta...
