Grit for the Fowls. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 4 February 1914

Grit for the Fowls. Some people have the impression that it is not accessary to supply grit to fowls which arc on tree range, as the birds will find sufficient for their needs. This may be true when there is a gravel road or seashore, etc., near by to which tho fowls have access; otherwise not. In a month's timo a largo flock of +'? wis daily foraging over the -amo .space will clear away all the tunable grit from a large area. Unless tho fohvs win range where there is an unlimited supply of gnfc, if will bo necessary to provide thera with a supply after a certain length of lime. no matter how rmich range they (rtjov. On land where poultry had never been kept ebforo, a flook might pcss.bly get along for several years wah the grit which the fowls could lirul <it. hand, but except in favored S't!jat/.»,ns tho grit supply runs out.

WHY HE WEPT. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 4 February 1914

WHY HE WEPT. Ho was a hard-looking ruffian, but his counsel, in a voioe husky with emotion, addressed tho jury. "Gentlemen," said he, "my client was driven by want of food to take tho small sum of money. All that ho wanted was sufficient money to buy food for his little ones. , Evidence of this lies in tho fact that he didn't take a pooket-book, containing fifty pounds in notes,, that wag lying in the rcfom.; The counsel paused for a moment, and tho silence was interrupted by a sob of the prisoner. . ' "Why do you Tveep?" asked the judge. "Because," replied the prisoner, ' I didn't see the pocket-book."

Furs Preserved by Gold [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 4 February 1914

Furs Preserved by Gold When the "life" of a fur garment is considered in rolation to its cost, the economical quality is a high one, par ticularly to-day, when scienee 1ms elfec ted .so perfect a preserver as cold .stor age) . This development of preserva tion, wliieh actually arrests natural deterioration caused by evaporation of the natural oil in the leather and h«ir of furs in temperate jjjkI hot atmos pheres, apart from the immunity it provides against ravages by moths, prolongs the life of the commodity lit a wonderful degree. This advantage alone, compensates for a great deal of the recent rise in valu es. Fu rther, the depth of color ;nid glo;-^ in the fur is more enduring by many years than it was under the warehousing conditions of bygone days.

WHEN AND HOW TO FILL THE SILO. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 4 February 1914

WHEN AND HOW TO FILL TH SILO. i ue quality of silage is determined to a great extent by tho condition of the maizo when cut and the care used in filling tbo silo. The question of tho proper timo to out maize and store in tho silo ha«s been much discussed and studied. Experience and careful study of results show that tho host .silago is made from maize that is cut and put into tho silo at tho time the kernel dents and begins to harden. At this stage tho inaizfe has practically attained. inaturity(, and its full maturity is de veloped. This, of oourso, will de poned to some degree on tho kind of maize which is grown. Some varieties of maize dent easier than others, and care should be taken not to let the maize become too dry. Dry maizo fodder does not pack and exclude the air as well as that which contains a considerable amount of moisture. It tho -uso of over-dry fodder cannot bo avoided, its disadvantages can be over come, in a measure, by adding water, as tho maize is put into the ...

The Cat and Disease [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 4 February 1914

The Cat and Disease j Under normal conditions tho germs of nearly all epidemic and local dis eases thrive upon tho family cat. Even where tho oat is itself not subject/ to tho diseases, it easily spreads tho con tagion, and occasionally is guilty on both accounts. Thus, in tho caso of diptheria, tho cat not only has tho diseaso itself, but also carries it on fcho mucous membranes of fur. Influenza is spread broadcast by fur and foot, and Haw let t has recently shown that as a distributor of plaguo, the cat vies in virulence with tho rat. Ringworm ?lid tapeworm, saya "Good Health" are .spread in tho same way, and pus germs find easy lodgment in tho thick hair, from which tho stroking hand quiokly nveys thom to the human body. Tho germs of typhoid and tuberculosis axe similarly distributed, as "well as tho n o subtle and less understood germs of whooping-cough, measles, scarlet fever, and small-pox.
