THE COMPOSITION OF FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
THE COMPOSITION OF FOOD. A hen, in order to maintain her self in good health and vigour and at the same time produce eggs, . must be given suitable and nourishing food. Foods are divided into four main classes: — 1. Nitrogenous or albuminous, which are mostly im portant to -the formation of flesh and production of eggs. 2. Carbonaceous foods, rich in starch, sugar, or :oil, and wanting in nitrogen, and'mkin ly instrumental in providing fatty matter that produces heat. 3. Mine ral substances, such as lime, iron, and phosphorous, which are essential to the formation of blood, bone, feathers, eggshells, and in helping digestion. ' Lastly oomes water, which forms by - far the largest part of the body. The poultrykeeper with a knowledge of the composition of foods and possessing* table^of analy bib,' will not only be able to exercise greater economy in feeding, but will j find that be can give his fowls a. diet exactly suited to their requirements.

Boree. The Storm. BOREE FARMERS SUFFER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
&oree. Tha Storm. BOREE FARMERS SffFFER. Last week will live in the memory of the Boree farmeis. The parish of Clyde in that district lay right., in the track ot the storfn which did BOch damage in Temoi'a aud in otliei wheat centres. The feature, the destructive feature of -the storm, was the sharp, swift and sytheing shower of hail. Starting at 2 p.m. on Thursday, like the destroying angel amidst Sennacherib's host this ha,il in a few minutes mowed down the ; ' fruit, of. our brave yeomen, leaving not alive stalk in its track. Mr J. Hopwood had 600 acres totally, des troyed and Mr R. J. Diummond an equally large area. A considerable - amount of damage was done at Mr A. W. Aston's- to the exteat -of a bag to the- acre, he thinks — and Messrs John Verdon, Con. Verdon, Thomas Mcrley, Alex McKentie and Arthur Teasdale had about oO per vcent, of their crops damaged.

JUDGING BY APPEARANCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
JUDGING BY APPEARANCES.] ' It is impossible to say with any certainty whether a bird is likely to be a good layer, judging by exter nals alone, yet appearances certainly convey a good deal of meaning to the experienced. It appears that birds which may be described as finely-drawn prove the best layers, it being remarked that this descrip tion applies to the layer irrespective of breed. There is something 'fine' about the contour of the good layer, especially as regards her head, and her carriage is alert and active. Production is unfav ourably influenced by excessive size and weight, and the largest birds seldom approach the average in fer tility. Abnormal development of any kind is undesirable, and sound ness of constitution is, of course, of the first importance.
SULPHUR DOSE FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
SULPHUR DOSE FOR FOWLS. Put three or four lumps of freshly burnt lime, the size of eggs, into an iron pot, slack the lime with boiling water, then stir into it about 6 ozs. of flowers of sulphur, stirring all the time; let it dou gently tor an nour or so ; pour off the clear liquor (which will be the colour of dark brandy), bottle and cork well. A second boiling may be made with fresh water, but the liquor will not be strong. A teaspoonful to every six hens, put into the water used for mixing the meal, is the best way to give it. Allowed daily, or twice a week, it will keep the fowls' plum age in good condition and soon put a stop to feather eating. This mix ture should be kept away from the dwelling-house, otherwise every time the cork is removed from the bottle the whole house will be filled with the sulphuric vapour given off from the liquor. Full bottles not in pres ent use should be well corked and sealed, and kept cool.
TO CURE FEATHER EATING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
TO CURE FEATHER EATING. When fowls take to plucking each other and eating feathers, it is a sure sign that they arc either very pam | pered or in a diseased state. Im proper food has a great deal to do with it, and a diet of too heating or stimulating a character, such as oat meal, potatoes, or rice only, too much meat or Indian corn, or the absence of green food, may be to blame. The mistake of keeping the fowls too closely confined may be sufficient to account for it, and the first thing to do is to allow them free range. Failing that, their covered run should be spread to the depth of a foot with chopped'stra'w or chaff. Some oats should be ocasionally mixed with it, and the daily supply of corn scattered there. The birds may now be doctored with nettle tea, flowers of sulphur, sparingly used, or a liquid for which the recipe is given below. For soft foocl let the birds have well prepared biscuit meal, scalded with the liquor from boiled bones or meat scraps, ana mixed with veget...
TO DESTROY MITES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
TO DESTROY MITES. Scrupulous care should be taken from the very earliest days of incu bation to keep the broody hen per fectly free from mites, which thrive and multiply rapidly on the exces sive Kvarmth of her body. They are also soon transferred to the young chickens, whose health and condition suffers accordingly. The hens should be carefully examined when first obtained, and a well-filled dust bath is an effective preventa tive. When cure is necessary, and frequent dusting with insect pow der fails to remove the pest, the bird's plumage should be carefu'ly smeared the reverse way with cot ton waste dipped in paraffin oil.

CLUCKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
CLUCKS. Bumble foot comes from the fowls alighting on hard floors from high roosts. If the house is dry overhead and dry underfoot it is comparatively j, easy to make the sides good. Weed out the old hens, and fatten them for market as soon as they be gin to drop off in egg production. There is such a thing as getting the hens too fleshy.^ They are apt to become Irzy and sit around all the time. Stop feeding such heavy food. Keep your hen-house .cool during the summer, but avoid draughts. Rooking in a draught has sent many a promising youngster- to an untimely grave; - Pure air is free and inexpensive, ' arid will enter every nook and corner .. of the poultry-house if it is permit ted. It is one of -the very essential things to the profitable raising of poultry. ? Close, stuffy quarters are very - injurious. When you whitewash the interior of the poultry-house, mix a liberal amount of some good disinfectant or crude carbolic acid with the white wash just before applying it. This wil...

DANGER OF OVERCROWDING [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
DANGER OF OVERCROWDING - Just now there is a tendency to ? overcrowd the young stock, which v must be faithfully guarded against. * Many keepers either do not or will ? not remember that a coop amply large for fifteen little chicks and their mother won t do tor the same number when they are three months old. Just -think how much larger they &re and, how much- warmer the weather. ' This warning is given ? year, after year, and year after year - it goes unheeded, and as often as it goes unheeded thousands of dead chicks are the result. Watch this matter.

WRINKLE ABOUT FRINGE-NETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
A WRINKLE ABOUT FRINGE NETS. We all know the way in which our invisible liair-nets tear at ev ery possible excuse, and the way they have of disappearing bodily af ter we have worn them once or twice ; and fliough they only cost a few pence each, yet in time we seem to spend a small fortune on them.^ With clever fingers and a little patience, you .can easily make them at home. Make a card-board frame the size of the net required. Then take some of your longest hairs and tie them across the Irame. Then thread a needle with another hair, arid pass across each hair, ty ing as you go. With a little judg ment as to what hairs to use. you will soon have a neatly-finished net ready for use.
