SEASONABLE HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 20 March 1908
SEASONABLE HINTS. Warm food will tend to assist moult ing. It is also very beneficial to poul-. try during cold weather. The cost of feeding a fowl for 12 months will vary accordlngsto the" price of grain and other food. It should hot. however, exceed Gs. In cases where the. whole of the food has to bo purchased, ft may be a trifle more, but this should only occur in rare cases. Moulting'will often tend to make fowls dull and "m&lt;£py." This causes the bird . to become weak In the tissues and un healthy. Exercise during moulting promotes the circulation of the blood, assists digestion, and.-generally improves the health and condition of poultry. . The growth of feather should be en- - couraged by liberal unci suitable food. Regularity in feeding is also an essen tial. If the bird is checkcd in any way the plumage Is apt to hang In the sheath of the feathers. The formation is . thereby interfered with.

Warmth in Soil. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 20 March 1908
Warmtli in Soil. The power of the soli to absorb ?warmth is dependent In a great meas ure on the amoiint of moisture In the soil and Its color. The darken In color a soli Is the quicker can It absorb warmth, and the lighter In color the longer will. It bo In attaining warmth. ; Soils containing much moisture are. always colder than dry soils, hence tho. great advantage of draining wet- lands.' Soils rich In humus absorb warmth quickly, but also give off the warmth rapidly. With damp clay soil the action la the reverse. They take a long time in acquiring a higher temperature, but on the other hand they retain their warmth better. By the application of farm-yard manure, composts, cultiva tion. and draining tfie farmer is in -a position to Improve the condition of hl3 soil. If wheat Is grown In two soils, one dark, the other light, but treated In all other respects in exactly the same way, the crop in' the darker soil will ?mature more quickly and better than, tho crop in the light soi...
