VALUE OF CHEESE AS A FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
VALUE OF CHEESE AS A FOOD. The fact that when it comes to' the furnishing of genuine, muscle building,. waste repairing food, cheese is in a class almost by itself, and has butter beaten over and over again, is not as widely known as it should -be. The truth is that cheese is one of the-great est known protein foods that it is prac ticable to: manufacture or produce in immiense quantities, being much richer, pound for pound, in muscle-forming material, than meat. On the other hand, butter, being almost all fat, is-a good heat and. energy producer, but lacks almost entirely the muscle-form ing elements .of food. From a general dietetic" standpoint, it may be said that butter falls: largely into the luxury class, - being an expensive but very eas ily digested fat, but cheese is a strong,. economical- food; suited to those- who have hard -work.' While we are not ad v-sing -farmers: to change butter fac tories into-cheese factories, we have no hesitancy in saying that cheese-making, as ...
AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. -4--t The war is hitting the nitrate of soda industry so hard that the Ghuliin GCr ernment is said to be giving pe cuniary assistance to 106 nitrate firms in order to prevent stoppage of work. It. is estimated that the number o, hog`s lost through swine fever last year in America would have been suffic.ent to supply every faminly (average 44 per sons) in the States with about 4Ulb of bacon Bacteria are the lowest forms of plant life, and are not of the animal aing dom, as is commonly supposed.

BREEDING GOOD CART HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
BREEDING GOOD CART HORSES. Those farmers who want to breed a good selling horse for town purposes would be well advised to go in for a pedigree mare or two, says the "Aus tralian Farm and Home," as they are as useful for farm work as the usual non-pedigree type of farm horse, whereas their progeny from a stallion of their own breed is a much more sale able article, as it is usually more mass ive, stronger, and more stylish than when the mother is not well bred. If one cannot afford to buy a pedigree mare at a breeding age, however, the next best thing to do is to go in for a filly foal or two and rear them till they are old enough for stud purposes. The Clydesdale is the most useful breed and as roomy and big a type of mare as possible should be bought, as the heavier a mare is the more valuable she will be for breeding from. The average type of farm mare of no par ticular breeding is not big enough to give good selling stock for town work, even if she be served by a first-class ped...
TWO POINTS OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
TWO POINTS OF VIEW. A German: allegory tells of two little eirln - They had been playing toge ther in a strange garden, and o soon one ran ii to her mother full of disappoint ment "'The garden is a sad place, mother!' ? Why, my child?" "Irve been all round, and every rose tree las cruel long thorns upon it!" Then the second child came in btreathless. " Oh, mother, the garden's a beauti ful place !" "How so, my child?" -Why, I've been all round, and every thorn-bush has lovely roses growinr on it !" And that is just what is happening every day. Very often whether we are happy or miserable depends on the waJ we look at a thing. "Marriage is so often a failure," saiC ,'liss Caustique, "that I don't blame vomen a bit for being old maids." "Blame them?" said the crusts bachelor. "Of course not. It isn't their fault.'
THE COST OF MILK PRODUCTION [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
THE COST OF MILK PRODUCTION In the course of a comprehensive re port just- issued by the South-eastern Agricultural College, Wye, England, the results of extensive inquiries into the cost of food in relation to the pro ductioi of milk are given. Mr G. H. Garrod is responsible for the .report from which it is gathered that one ben efit derived from this careful inquiry has been a commendable .desire to save money on the food bill without im pairing the efficiency of the dietary. At one time, excessive supplies of turnips and mangolds were given during the winter months, but in the past year, the quantity was reduced to an average of 521bs- daily. Of the fodder crops, hay is the most valuable, over 70 -per cent of hay being. furnished in the bulkier portion of the dietary. Wet grains are a popular food in milk die tary, but these have been used in moderate quantities. Of the concen trated foods, maize gluten feed is highly spoken of amongst those foods that are rich in protein. Cotton...

HINTS FOR POULTRY BREEDERS [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
HINTS FOR POULTRY BREEDERS Cold is -tho best means of preventing th' growth of bacteria in eggs. - The decay of :eggs, as of all food ma-terial, is due almost entirely to micro-organisms, especially lacteria :and moulds. These may infect the' eggs before and after they are laid. : Fowls must have green food if much is expected of'them,- and it is not diffi cult in our climate to provide for it the year round. The vital factors in determining how "far culling is profitable are: First, the number of birds whose pro duction is actually below the cost of retention in the flock; second, the ra tio of accuracy with which one can judge the ranking of the. individual producers.
NOTES ON NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
NOTES ON NATURE. (By '"Naturalist.") It is a good thing that we are not limited in our appreciation of Nature's work by the lack of so-called wealth. Nor is it necessary that we should be scienlists or hold any special diplomas in order to feel an enjoyment of outdoor life. Without getting too far away from my subject, in a very ordinary sense, .the wealth of the few means the poverty of the many, but is ,here no wealth in the sunshine? And who can claim an interest in it to the exclusion of anybody else? A man may be as poor as a school ily or a church mouse, or anything else that feeds only on atomic intellectual substances, or the still rarer morsels of moiality; yet his heart can fill with rapture over the ris ing or setting sun, and his mind be en larged by observance of an insect's ways. After all, our true wealth is that which we assimilate; we can have 1 no other. There is really no such ano maly- in the world as a wealth-possessed 1 man. No one can usurp more than he can us...
FROM FLOUR TO BREAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
FROM FLOUR TO BREAD. An old English flour miller writes in .h " "'Hawker Bay Tribune": A ton of flour in England of 2,240 lbs., or eight sacks of 2801bs, will pro duce on an average between 1300 and 1440 loaves .of 21b weight.. Bakers in England weigh off dough at 21b 3oz, or 21b 4 ozs., the extra ounces allow ing for evaporation in baking. Water, salt, potatoes and yeast are added to the flour to ferment and make dough. An average of 1,350 loaves from a ton of flour at 5d per 21b loaf, is £32/5/10. With flour at £16 per ton, comment is superfluous. Fifty-four bushels 1wheat produce 2,2401bs flour, namely, one ton English weight. Offal pays cost of milling.

FORMERLY THE ORGANIS ING CHAPLAIN TO. BISHOP OF GRAFTON & ARMIDALE WRITES' THIS LETTER STATING THE GREAT GOOD REOEIVED FROM CLEMENTS TONIC. The Rev. F. W. Haruris-Walker is one of the best known workers in the church, and is at present as sociated with one of the leading churches in N:S.W. =His labors in this field extend. over 25 years.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Rusticus. ") A quite new and striking aspect has been imparted to the efforts to bring producer and consumer into more direct touch by recent developments on the part of the Co-operative Selling Com panies. Those organisations have safe ly weathered the stress of the inaugural -period of their existence. The pro phecies for their speedy disintegration, which were so freely spread around dur ing the earlier part of their careers have confounded the prophets. Each year has strengthened them and they .are steadily widening their range of activity.in the interests of the man on the land. That much exploited indivi dual is consequently getting more of what is his due. He is getting further away from the condition of things which, not so very long ago, frequently found him at his post office studying with rueful- countenance the account sales from the city for a consignment of produce which left him actually in debt to the philanthropic people who had handled it for...
FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
FLOWER- GARDEN. The various plants in the flower garden will require liberal food sup plies at. the present time. ..The soil having been so frequently watered during summer, the food supplies of various plants have been consid erably reduced by the process of "washing out"; and as it is the sea son of the year when the most popular flowers of the year will be blooming, viz., dahlias, chrysanthe muns, and roses, the plants will require a, good stimulus. Liquidc manures should be used in prefer once; and these should always be used in a weak solution first, grad ually -making it stronger as the plant becomes accustomed to the feeding. Once a week is sufficient for liquid manures, and the plants should never be excessively fed. Animal ma-n orcs may be prepared for . liquid manures by soaking for a few .days at the rate of . lb. of well-rotted and well-preseived manure in one gallon of 'water. A few handfuls of soot thrown in this makes , great improvement in the -food. If or dinary che...
TO PICK UP A COLT'S HIND LEG [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
TO PICK UP A-COLT'S HIND LEG The blacksmith's -method of resting one hand on a horse's hip and using the 'clair 6 a hammer 'to pick'up the hind foot is -not always the best and safest method, where a colt is the sub ject. A contemporary gives the following as a befter plan:--Lead the horse for ward until the hind leg to be picked up is well forward of the other one. Next stoop down and pass -the hand nearest the horseo quickly inside the hind leg-just above the fetlock grasping firmly at:. that point, and pull- - ing. the back tendon inwards with the fingers: Thus 'the - leg can be raised and dralwn forward withl ease, and any reasonably strong man can retain his hold so long as the back tendon is pulled inside. The safety of this -me thod lies- in the feet -that a horse can -.lot kick 'with the hind lag that'is for ward, -.and must draw it back before he can effect damage. If a man misses his grab at the leg, therefore, there is ample time f6r him to get clear be fore. the horse ki...

A Martyred Man. Br Kars THona. When the family has company it inner, the man of the house is expect: 1 to make a martyr of himself, ano arve the turkey. Now, if some one who has a geniur ,r invention would manage to con. rive a way of putting a turkey together ,o that it could be unscrewed, as you vould unscrew the cork in a bottle, vhat an immense relief it would be to he man who has to carve. A turkey's joints are built upon lonor. They are made to endure. Chey are tougher and more lasting han the historical "hide that was ound in the pit when the tanner died.' The carving-knife of the average -ousehold is in a state of perpetual fullness. Nobody has, so far as we know, ever seen a sharp carving-knife knd the people who have to wait for a .urkey to be disjointed are generally in s very impatient frame of mind, and, aeing impatient, they are extremely watchful, and if there is anything tha; exasperates the man who is earving it is to be watched. It requires as much nerve to carve a...

GUARD OUR SOLDIERS—DANGER FROM DISEASE. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
GUARD OUR SOLDIERS-DANGER FROM DISEASE. (To the Editor.) Sir.-- The Australasfan White Cross League appeals for funds to. enable booklets warning-mena.goilinst the dangers of sexual immorality, to be distributed freely among our Australian soldiers. These booklets not only point, out in the plainest terms the dire effects of venereal diseases in wrecking the physical frame, and producing years or ao lifetime of misery and suffering, -but make an appeal also to the noble and chivalrous instincts latent in nearly all young men. urging them to self-control for the sake of wonmaunhood. It. is believed that if one or more of these booklets can be placed in the hands of every sol dier, whether in camp in the var ious States, or on board ship, or in Egypt, incalculable good will re sult. It is appalling to think that hundreds of these fine young men -the very flbwer of our race-may acquire some loathsome disease which will blast. the whole of their future life, and it may be that of their ...
VEGETABLE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 19 March 1915
VEGETA:BLE GARDEN. All vacant plots should be given a liberal dressing of stable manure, and then well and deeply dug. For winter growth, the beds should be elevated somewhat. above the ordin ary summer level. That is, the path surface may be on a lower level, the plot soil being well thrown up and boldly ridged. This will give a certain amount of drainage, and will insure warmer and better soil; the vegetables should 'succeed more in this class of bed than any other. The vegetable garden, and also the seed bed, should be kept -free of any weeds, and a gouod cultivation kept up all through. Seedlings oi cabiagea, cauliflowers, let.uces, and celery may be transplanted out; and seeds of cabbage, cauhlflower, let tuce. early peas, s~~vde turnil s, car rot, parsnip, and .early onions may be sown.
