THE POULTRY YARD. THE USE OF GRIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 19 February 1908
THE POULTRY ; V*fcD. THE USE OF GRIT. For several years (says the 'Town and ? Country,' N.S.W.) It has been contended In this column that the common view that grit acts as a grinder of grain tn the muscular gizzard of fowls of various kinds, is a fallacy. This contention is not wanting hi support from eminent poul try authorities in America and Englano. Tw.o years ago, Drs Louis Dechmann and C W Sanbnrn. total strangers tn each other, and therefore without any collusion, simultaneously contributed ar ticles taking this view, respectively to the 'Reliable Poultry Journal' and to 'Poultry.' But, to quote the former journal, 'a great deal that Is written fort he poultry press becomes tradition, is handed down from one writer to an other, and is frequently accepted with no thought of original research, or of doubting the accuracy of the timehon ored statements. In the early days un doubtedly the argument was based upon the fact that the fowl does not possess teeth, that it has a powerfu...

TALES OF A CARRIER'S CART. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 19 February 1908
TAKES OF A CARRIER'S CART. There Is something1 of fitness that the currier who has just died after travel- ' ling tbe Dorcbester-Blandford road for twenty years without a break should , have bad the Tom Hardy country for j his jouraeyings. For it was in the car- , Tier's cart out of Dorchester -that Mr Hardy wove his Wessei tales.

AT HIS BEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 19 February 1908
AT HIS BEST. At what age Is a man at Vis best, and most likely to achieve his life work? asks the 'Sunday School Chronicle.' The Bev. F. B. Meyer once pot the age at forty-six. That seemed late to a critic; but Dr Leonard Guthrie at tbe Royal College of Physicians snDDorted tbe statement. He quoted Jastro's table dealing with specially precodons people; which showed that tbe average age at which great artists did their nest work was iaS; their first great, work, 28; their greatest work; 46.7; and* that the aver age age at death was 60.1. For poets tbe figures in the snme order were: 15.6, 27.8, 43.9, and 6L6; .for philosophers, 17.6, 32.1, 47.7, and MX Here Is com fort for those who think of middle life as flat prose.
THE BEEKEEPER BEEKEEPING FOB FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 19 February 1908
THE BEEKEEPER ^iy^i- nm*i mb FOB- y^ntm ism, All farmers ought to keep a few colo nies of bees. But the bees must be man aged so as to give little trouble. For this I suggest (writes a Oalifornlan api arist) a large hive, as the Dadant, Jumbo or Draper Barn, arranged for producing extracted honey. The frames in tne orooa nest must be proviaea at the start with full sheets of foundation to avoid, over-production of drones. The surplus apartment, or top floor, can do with only starters In the frames, that is, narrow strips of foundation, instead of full sheets. Mo honey should be taken out of the brood nest, but that In the upper story .can be appropriated. If possible It should be extracted from the combs, and the empty combs returned to the hive. If not, the honey may be cut out, comb and all, and used that way, leaving a strip lin. wide along the top bar to start the bees again. In the autumn see that there is plenty of honey in the brood nest. If not, feed sugar syrup or honey. Pr...
LONGEVITY IN BEES. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 19 February 1908
LONGEVITY IN BEES. The length of Ufe of any bee depends upon tbe season of tbe year when the trial Is made and the condition of the colony. If in tbe summer or working season, 4E days will be about the length of life the worker will enjoy; while If during the autumn and winter months the time will be found to range from si to eight months. For instance, if one takes away n black or German queen about the middle of December and Introduces an Italian queen In her place, Italian bees will be hatching 21 days thereafter. This date one may mark on the hive as the time to count from, as there will l»e no black bees emerging from the cell? after this. At the end of 40 days the black bees will be very scarce; while at the end of 45 days not a black bee will be found in the hive. If the colony Is mode quecnless ait the end of 20 days after tho Italian queen was introduced, then the length of life to the workers will be prolonged on ac count of their not laboring so hard. Queenless bees never...

LITERARY PILGRIMS. THEIR ENGLISH MECCA. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 19 February 1908
XiITERARY PHiGRXMS. THEffi ENGLISH MECCA. The place to which the lover of English literature will . sooner or later turn his step .is, Mr George A. writes in ' Great Thoughts,' Twickenham. No other small' town can boast of having: been the resi dence and beloved abode of eo many famous literary lights. With it are associated the immortal names of Pope, Horace Walpolc, Swift, Gay, Lady ? Wortley Montague, Gibbon, Bos well, Johnson, Tennyson, and Dickens. Surely this is enough to make any place doubly immortal 1 Twickenham was well nicknamed by Horace Waipole the Baiae, or Tivoli, of England ; for it has truly been to London what Baiae was to ancient Borne — indeed, in a far higher de gree. TENNYSON'S HOUSE. Among places singled out by Mr Wade for special mention is the big red-brick house in Montpelier road, where Alfred Tennyson lived for so many years of his earlier married life, and in which many of his earner poems were written. 'Here his son Lionel, the second Lord Tennyson, was...
HEALTH HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 19 February 1908
HEALTH HINTS. One suffering from pimples should eat liberally 'of watercress. There Is no bet ter blood purifier. Watercress is rich in Iron, and Is very good for those wht are inclined to be anaemic. To alleviate burns, place immediately on the Injured part equal parts of lime water and linseed oil. This mixture takes away all redness and the blisters which Invariably attend burns. To relive a sprain, wormwood boiled In vinegar and applied as hot as can be borne on a sprain or bruise Is an Inva luable remedy. The affected member should afterwards be rolled In flannel to retain the heat When palpitation is very troublesome take eight drops of oil of carraway on a little lump sugar, and usp the stairs or steps as little as possible. Also a drink of cold water, or, better still, sodawater with a good pinch of salt in it is ji very good thing. A home-made cough syrup that Is highly recommended Is the juice of one lemon, half a stick of liquorice (pounded fine), a tablespoonful of glyce...

HANDY FEEDING TROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 26 February 1908
BANDY FEEDING TROUGH. A very serviceable style of feeding trough is on the principle Indicated In the illustration annexed. As Will be seen, it is made to swing into a passage when desired. When pulled Into the passage the food may be put in, and any necessary mixing done without mo lestation from the animal; or If, for any reason, It is necessary for the attendant to be absent for a part of the day, .the trough may be left swung Into the pas sage with the necessary food in It, and at feeding time a child can push it through to position. Tbe diagram may be explained' as follows:—! The trough in position. 2. Trough swung -into the alley to deceive food. 3. Catch to hold the trough In position. 4. Bars placed 16 of long fodder. 6. Post. 6. Bolt on which tbe trough is hinged. .
AN INTERESTING COW. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 26 February 1908
AN INTERESTING COW. Tbe Ontario Agricultural College owns a young Holstein-Frlesian oow, which is named Boutsje Q. Pieterje de Kol. Prom 27th October, ISO* to 26th October 1907, she gave 20.7781b. of milk, testing a fraction over 3.78 per cent fcut tfer fat The cost of feed was LI4 10s, while the value of the butter fat was L3E. If the 2O.«OOIb. of skim milk and .huttermlllc were fpnknrieii at ifM nor Anrt It would amount to L8. Adding this to the value of the butter fat, the total value of the yield would be L46. De ducting cost of feed, thla cow yielded a net profit of Ul 10s. - The supreme im portance of breeding and selection is here apparent 'No amount of care and good feeding will produce results which are hot inherent in the animal herself. Professor H. H. Dean purchased this cow from a 'private dairyman. It Is reason ably certain that thiB record Is one ot the best, if not the best, ever made In Canada.
THE DAIRY. THE SPECIAL PURPOSE COW. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 26 February 1908

Jn his opinion, any other kind of cow should not find a' place on a dairy farm. In an- address at a recent con vention of dairymen of Minnesota, he spoke as follows regarding ths special Thirty-five per cent, of the farmers do not read any dairy or agricultural paper, do not study the problem of milk production, the feeding or kind ot cow that is best adapted for dairy work; but in every Instance those who do study that subject, those who do keep some sort of note of the yield of their cows and who know how they should be cared for, receive In round numbers double the amount from their cows.

BACTERICIDE FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 26 February 1908
BACTERICIDE FOR HUE, The effect of a carbon dioxide, at high pressure, as o bacterlclde is well known. To this fortunate property many of th? consumers of soda Water owe iheir im munity from typhoid and. other bac terial diseases. Anyone who has ob served, and has inquired into the causes of, the yellowish deposit sometimes to be seen in syphons of soda water, es the force of this statement. Carbon dioxide has been used also to prcven: the curdling of milk, and experiment' conducted at the New York Agricultural Station at Oeneva, N.T., are ot interest in this connection. The milk, both fresh and pasteurised (i.e. sterilised), was charged with the gas at a pressure of 1501b. to the square inch. The milk was then run into ordinary syphons. The sterilised milk vas found to be perfectly good for 40 weeks. Ordinary milk, when carbonated, will apparently keep- for several weeks. It seems likely that a commercial future lies before t^ie-c ex priments.
