CHEESE MAKING AND THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 6 January 1915
CHEESE MAKING AND"THE SOIL. It is becoming more and more known to cheese makers that the soil has a very great deal to do with the kind and quality of the cheese made (says Mr. Primrose McConnell in "The Dairy"). The skill of the cheese mak>.r is, ot cour.-e. oi the most im portance, and a good maker will pro duce good material under adverse cir cumstances; hut, on the other hand, if the soil is one suitable for the purpose, it is more easy to do good work than in a converse ca:?c. A curious tact is often met with in the best quality soils, and that. 's. soils which grow the biggest crops are not those which nat urally produce the finest cheese, but that often mtu id-rate soils make a much better quality where an equal amount of skill is exercised in both case-. The best low-lying pastures, for instance, which yield floods of milk, (and where the grass grow* quite ns well as elsewhere), very often do not suit as the land which is comparatively poor up on the uill sides. It is fou...

FEEDING THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 6 January 1915
FEEDING .THE SOIL. Feed .voiir toil ~nd that &oil will food you, but starve that laud., and that land will starve you. Tlio true far mer feeis the hunger of bis soil as if it wero his own, and wheu ho is able to satisfy that hunger, it is as great an enjoyment, as the taking of a hearty moal of victuals. Nothing •vyill so satisfy the true farmer as to bog the poor land made fertile, and the barren spc* producing a .nying crop. One argument for keeping a good many head of stock is to build up the soil. The man lceds hTs grain ami roughness out on his place, and the stock give if back to tho land* in ler» tilizer. The man who hauls his grain and roughness off the place to market must look to other sources for food for his land. Of course if he is close to town and can buy fertiliser or havo it given to him, he can feed his soil, year after year. So many fanners do not live near town, mj they must depend on the growing nf leguminous crops and the rotation of crops to maintain t...
AFTER A TORNADO. THE DEAD AND WOUNDED. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 6 January 1915
AFTER A TORNADO. 4 'HIE DEAD AND WOUNDED. I was glad wlun the negro porter made up the beds for th> night, as I anticipated being up early next morning to change trains at St. Pali!. However, v. hen the sun rose, and I blinked out sleepily at a huge expanse of water, th: negro poked his head through my curtains. "Guess yd' needn't get a hustle on," he drawled. "There's washouts all 'Ion' line. We don't make St. Paul cn time." Then I realised that the train was pifcking its way very cautiously, and that the Mississippi had a swollen body, for she was bulging with water over and above her wide limits, and the railway lines seemed to be learn ing to swim. Presently the porter reappeared. "Guess you'll be wantin' all y"o' time," he said. "We're at the break fastin' station in twenty minutes. It'll be yo' only chance for a meal. We've to go right 'Ion' through Iowd to make St. Paul." The whole ac cent is placed cn the St. in the local lingo of these parts.. 'file breakfasting station ...

CARE OF TOOLS. Some general .jirections for tho euro and preservation of tools will not bo out of place,, us even tlio best tools been mo usoless If they nro not cared for, Tho following hints will 110 doubt bo appreciated by cvory lncchnnic who desires to make his tools last as long as possible, and who always wislios to havo them in good condition. Tho wooden parts of tools, t>uch as stocks of pianos i.nd handles of eliisels, are often made 10 have a nice appear ance by polishing, but this adds noth ing to their durability: A much bet ter plan is to let thorn soak in linseed oil for a week, and then rub thorn with u cloth for a fow in i mi tea each day, for a week or two.

FARMERS' SONS. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 6 January 1915
FARMERS' SONS. If you aro a farmor and you want your .son to bo a farmer after you toach him from his earliest boyhood to j and trust with credit to themselves, rcspeet his father's calliug. Instill ! into his mind the fact that the great men of all ages were sous of l'anners, Toach him never to feel ashamed at the senseless and threadbare jokes ol would-be humorists'over old "hayseed" and his lumbering old market wagon and his quaintness of speech when he* visits tho city and staves round at the sights, and docs not make half so mueh a fool of himself as the average city man whan he comes to the country. Do not fill his life entirely with work. Recreation is as necessary to happiness and to a healthful develop, meat of the spiritual and phlsieal facul ties as is pure air, and there is untold wisdom in tho old saw "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." Kneourage him when he tries to do well, oven if lie fails. Failures which teach us how to avoid future disasters are successe...

DOCKS AND THEIR DESTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 6 January 1915
DOCKS AND THEIR DESTRUC TION. Docks, are perren:al plants, and pos sess strong, deeply penetrating, ihick tap roots, which contain large store> of food material. "When pulled, the full grown plants are very tenacious of life, and even when left exposed and lying on the ground may ripen their seeds. Hence old plants, which aro removed during ploughing, etc., | should be collected and burned, and not [ left to lio about 111 odd corners where : | they may continue their growth. Seed t ling docks, however, are rnoro sensitive. ! and when leit cxpo>ed. as is done by , I booing amougst root crops, soon die. i If hoeing be continued amongst such ! crops, as late as possible, or even into j the autumn, many young plants will , thus bo destroyed, which if left alone till the next season, would become j well established i»nd much more dilii- 1 cult of eradication. i In grass land, docks should bo ays- i tematically spudded or docked with a ' special tool (tiio ''docking iron") as freque...

A JOURNALISTIC BET. HOW A REPORTER ENJOYED A! CHEAP AFTERNOON. An amusing article in one oi the Paris papers the other day was the result of a bet between two journal ists. The bet was that the author of the article would not succeed in gett ing two free meals and afternoon tea, and sir.n l the evening at the theatre without spending a half-penny. He won his bet, and this is how he won it. At twelve o'clock exactly, when tho lunch-bell ranr,, he walked upstairs in a big department store and joined the shopmen who were going to their hinduou. Ko!;o«Iy took the slightest notice of him. Kverykody was iu too much hurry to notice that there was a stranger present, and he made an excellent lunch of calf's head, spinach, and dessert.
