All the colonies there have ? .passed legislation prohibiting the ex port of goats. The industry is consid. ered so valuable, that the colonies want , it for themselves.

THE DAIRY. WEIGHT OF ENSILAGES. CAPACITY OF SILO. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 22 January 1909
THE DAIRY.. WEIGHT OF ENSILAGES. . CAPACITY OF SILO. The construction of silos is becoming general" throughout the Stater Many have been filled for the first time this season. In estimating the capacity of silos ,It should be remembered that tho weight of ensilage Increases with the depth, the amount of moisture It con tains, and the diameter. .In slips of small diajnetet* the amount of surface in the wall is greater fn proportion to t4ie silage contained.. Tho friction on the sides tends to prevent the settling of the silage. Consequently, in a'1 very, small silo a cubic foot of ensilage at tho depth of 30 feet would not weigh ?as J much as it would in a large silo at tho same depth. . .. Experiments made recently show that the first foot of silage on the top of tho silo weighs about 18.7 lb. per cubic foot Then there is' a gradual increase for each foot In length. The Increase is about 1.15,lbs. per foot In depth, so that a cubic foot of ensilage at the: bottom . of a 40ft. silo w...

LIME IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 22 January 1909
. LIME IN THE DAIRY. In all Danish creameries barrets cont aining lime water occupy, a prominent position. The creameries, which- years ago practised the steaming of all churns and other dairy utensils regiflarly 1ft order to keep them sweet and pure, now simply scrub them in hot water, and * while the surface Is still warm, apply with a brush a generous coating of thick limewash. This is( partly absorbed by the pores of the wood, which It purifies and makes bright and firm., The surplus "llrtie Is afterwards washed off. It ap pears that lime takes the place of wash- - ing soda, being much superior for creamery purposes, and a great deal cheaper as well. Lime removes greaso and sour smells fropi floors and uten sils, makes tinware brighter, and the grain of wood firm, bright, and loose. Some creamery associations strongly re.commend suppliers to use lime fop cleaning their milk vessels, as well as for whitewashing stables, milk houses, etc. The formula for preparing lime water in wh...
A ROUND TRIP TO WOMBEYAN CAVES. The Wonderful Gem of the South. II. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 22 January 1909
A ROUND TRIP TO WOMBEYAN CAVES. The Wonderful Gem of the South. II. So much has been written and pic- tured of the Wombeyan Caves, that it is not intended in the space of this short article to expound the beauties of each separately, but rather to give an account of a little-known cave to which only the hardy and venturesome are admitted. The first cave visited was the Kooringa Cave. The track rises up on the right of the barrier of limestone through which the Wombeyan Creek has forced its way, and the entrance somewhat resembles the front door of the engine-room of a modern ocean liner. The barred door is opened up- wards, and one descends a shaft by an iron ladder, and down steep stairways, it the foot a very fine column of pure white formation is met; and also some fine striped shawls. A short distance further on a cavern named. "The Museum" opens out, and many of nature's treasures are stored here. The Crystal Terrace, whose radiant sides scintillate and flash back the light lik...

A NARROW ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 January 1909
NARROW ESCAPE. The old auntie never had seen a cinematograph show before. She gaz ed in specchless wonder at tho magic contrivance by which message boys were made to move with breakneck l speed, barbers to shave their custom- ; ers in less than a'minute, and heavy . policemen to dash along: the street ac j a rate never attained by a living speci men, cither on or off duty. It was all real tO' her. She could not doubt the evidence of her senses. All those things were taking place ex- j actly as depictcl. ' Presently a motor, car came in sight in the far background, moving direct ly towards the audience at the rate of at least a mile a minute. Just as a catastrophe seemed inevitable. it swerved aside, passed on, and disap peared. The old lady could stand it no lon ger. Hastily grasping the hand of tier little niece, she rose and 6tar&lt;c&lt;l ssvifty for the door. . "Come along, Annie!" she said. "It' ain't safe to stay here any longer!

No License. (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 January 1909
No License. ..(To the Editor) Sir,- ?' ' ? While I am ueither "insul ted nor offended" by the' personal!, question of "Ad retn" in. your last issue, I decline to cuter into an ir relevant discussion- with an un known correspondent iu the public, press about my father's family affairs and business. I bear no malice towards the licensed victual lers, as "Ad rem" seems to aver,, but I oppose the traffic, and have been dealing so far with that only. I think the both sides would be laid before your readers for their judg ment in better spirit if we left thd persons alone until their actions ; wereinconsistent with their opinions. As he has chosen the pseudonym of "to the point" would he now. justiiy it, as my parentage ants' education have nothing whatever to do with the figures and ethics of No license in New Zealand, or the liquor traffic generally. Does "Ad rem" know that to turn from debate to personalities is an admitted sign of weakness in his case. Yours siucerely, R. C. OAKLEY.

DOCTOR'S READY RESOURCE. I can't g*and this any longer, doc tor," said the nervous woman. "It the patient in the next room to mine, No. 22, doesn't fcecp quiet at night 1 must change my room or leave the sanatorium altogether." "What's the trouble?" asked her physician. "She has one of these squeaky old wooden bedsteads, and every time she turn over it awakens me. Last night she did nothing but toss to and fro, and I didn't get a single wink of sleep." i "I'll see to that at once," he assured : her. "A woman in your condition cer- i tainly must have absolute quiet at I night. I'll have the patient in No. 22 sleep on the roof. The fresh air will be better for her anyway." . The next morning the nervous wo man appeared in the consultation room of the sanatorium in radiant mood. "How did you sleep?" asked the doctor.1 "Perfectly," she replied. "I'm so much obliged to you. It made a great difference." "I knew it would," he said, grave ly. He was telling the truth, because 1>" knew th...

IS HELL IN THE SUN? [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 January 1909
IS HELL IN THE SUN? Attention has been callcd to a state ment by Professor Haeckel Jthht in I the course of time-millions of years -the earth will fall back into the sun, when the force of attraction is destroy- ' e&lt;l by.the diminution of the solar dia- ' meter. It is certain, too, that the earth cannot, fall into anywhere else but the sun, whence it came. . Now it is shown that the diameter ' of the sun decreases each year, in ac- , cordance with the cooling process-a 1 process which is still lacking place with j our earth. The process has not yet ' come wihin the range of accurate &lt; mathematical calculation. Neverthe less, it is ccrain that it is taking place. So, then, according to Ilaeckcl, wc must believe that the earth, which is conscious, or feeling, matter, matter, will eventually fall 'back into lite sun, and burn there for millions of years. , Just reflect, says a critic, that the i diameter of the sun is more than one hundred times that of the earth,...
POULTRY. SEASONABLE HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 January 1909
I POULTRY. SEASONABLE HINTS. Change of food will tend to keep fowls In good .laying* condition. It is not ad visable to keep them strictly to one kind of food. Wheat should form the staple article of diet, but oats, pollard, bran, and vegetables, or roots, should bo given occasionally. The quality of the food and tho amount supplied h&ve a direct effect on tlie egg production of hens. This should be borne in mind by those who keep hens for.laying-purposes. If your fowls are not worth studying, get rid of them at once, and purchase some that are. The habits of poultry require careful study if their owner wl?hes them to*bp a source of profit on the farm. Poultry will adapt thmeelves on tho srtn\H, as well as the larger holdings, In connection with farming, dairying, or fruit growing, they can be raised with good results, and should prove a valuable adjunct to cither industry. If your 3'oung stock arc of good qual ity either for egg production or table purposes, it will be the ...
