GIRLS WITH BRAINS NEEDED IN THE HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 7 February 1914
: .. •, * GIRLS WITH BRAINS NEEDED IN THE HOUSEHOLD. "Domestic service as a career for educated women" was advocated by iVli's Glou&lt;lcslcy liroieion at the ."Na tional Gas Coniereuce. . l'f tho- edu cated woman was to bt> the domcstio handmaiden of the future, she said,' ' it must be as friend, and colleague, artd not as gerfj imd - dependent. : She must share -ui,'domestic rosiwnsibilitie.s : Tliey wanted: ^6 _ get back to thu ofVI' tasliioned ideas and ideals of the we Un bred English woman, from feudal times onwards. and to depart from the snobbish, and paroohial idea lliair t«j understand housework was tu l&lt;»so caste.

NATIONAL APPLE DAY. ENCOURAGIN FRUIT CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 7 February 1914
NATIONAL APPLE DAY. ENCOURAGIN FRUIT CONSUMP • TION. ... One of the happiest ideas that have come' to us from American fruitgrowers (slays the! "Journal''^ is that "of a National Ajpple Day, the object being . to bring before the great communities of oity consumers, in the most attrac tive manner possible, the virtues oi the apple, not only as a choice item oi dessert, but as a valuable, everyday article of diet. The idea could W copied with distinct advantage in this dountry. As the National Apple Day would be primarily a great advertising campaign, on behalf of the king of fruits, the scheme wouldv require to be designed on 'a generous scale, and in a manner which would appeal to the greatest! number of consumers. It . may be rather ambitious to adopt one American feature—the free distribu- | tion of apple pies (special machinery at the Spokane National Apple Show turn ed out these pies at a rate of 2250 per hour). However, it would, certainly £ay well to give choice apples for sa...
FEEDING DAIRY COWS. DRY WEATHER PROBLEMS [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 7 February 1914
FEEDING DAIRY COWS. DRY WEATHER PROBLEMS One of the most serious problems which the dairy-farmer has to face is providing feed for dairy cattle during long spells of dry weather. For the purpose qf feeding Jdlairy cows, lu cerne far surpasses all other crops. The best land is a deep good loa;iu Lucerud is the most profitable of all crops. Nor is it altogether depend ent upon moisture at or near the sur face. It sends its roots far down into the soil and subsoil, and hence gets supplies of water where many other crops would fail from drought. The soil must be in good heart,. be well cultivated, and when- once established, ifc will yield crops for several years. The' surface 'soil in which" the seed js placed,-.must ,l)e -fine,, and manure ap plied liberally. It is much better to -drill the seed, at the rate of lSlb 'to 201b to the. acre. The soil must be rich itr- phosphates, and lime and potash A "frequent manure applied is: 35 bush els of lime, 150 lbs of phosphate, 1001b sulphate ...
TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 7 February 1914
TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. According to the statistics published (says the Mark Lane Express) there were in England last year 244,831 acres' classed aa orchards. We are sorry to 'say we cannot say of "Cultivated orchards, because the mistaken idea seems to'have prevailed to a great ex thatl orchards and pastures' can get along alright without attention or as sistance; that kind Nature- ^has en dowed them with the power of con tinuing to extract nourishment! from a soil sucked , dry by means of crop ping. The result of such a paradox is visible in the poverty stricken con dition of many orchards and pastures. It is pleasant to record that a- change for tha better is gradually taking place. It is being recognised that when fruit trees of a good clasd are grown, and sprayed and pruned, orch ards .become a source of profit not to be despised. It is essential that the trees,/ if expected to produce abund ant crops of good fruit, should be sup plied with nourishment, to compen sate th...

POULTRY YARD. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 7 February 1914
POULTRY YARD. A oareful poultry-keeper will go into the fo.wl-house now and then in the evening, to see the birds are allright, as their exact condition can bd ob served when on the perch.". Should any bird be breathing hard, a tea spoonful of warmed glycerine, follow ed by one of salad oil, should be given at once, as this treatment will ease in a short time; then give two roup pills, and on an average, fifteen birds out of every twenty will be well in from three to seven days, if treated when the first symptoms appear. Should the rattling in the throat be very severe, and the breathing hard, the flesh over the lungs should be pain ted with tincture of arnica. For the man who goes in solely for eggs, a foroing system of feeding is all right, but it is bound to be detri mental to breeding stock, and tlus is why pullets, intended for breeding purposes, should not be given quanti ties of nourishing-soft food. If they are, it almost certain that many of the eggs produced ;will be infer...
