FOR THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914

FOR .THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. -If all pou!try houses of the 'closed in type had an end or one side of them knocked out, disease would dim inish by one-half, and the profits from the birds compelled to roost in them would, probably, be doubled. It is impossible to conceive anything more insanitary and conducive to disease than the . ordinary type of fowlhouse one sees in the country. It is cramp. ed, dark and without any ventiration,. except the many draughty cracks. It is little wonder that going from the foetid atmosphere into often an -un-. sheltered yard the birds contract colds, and soon become a prey to dis ease. It were far better to let the hens roost in -trees. The sleeping quarters of fowls should be merely. draught-proof shelters from extremes of weather and, if winter eggs be .de sired, they should have dry scratch ing quarters for bad weather. Always have your poultry houses- open to the north.

THE BENDIGO DEMONSTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914

THe BENDIGO DEMONSTRATION. On Tuesday night last a start was imade by the local firemen with competi tion work for the Bendigo demonstration which takes places at the Golden City in March. In former years the firemen were somewhat hampered for the want of water, but this year a perpetual supply has been secured from Mr C. W. Ja.o, in Cox-street, so there is no reason now why the firemen should not brighten up to the work and keep the hydrantat play. Mr Jago has had a bore sunk and mill erected at the rear of his premises, and this gives an abundant supply for domes tic as well as for fire extinguishing pur poses, and he is to be congratulated on Shis enterprise. The bore was put through a severe test by the firemen, and stood it well, throwing a powerful stream of water the full width of Cox-street. It is intended to give the bore another trial on Saturdry afternoon, when the work will becontinued. The firemen are thankful Sto Mr Jago for his generous act. t INTERPERING WITH A VorTE...

IRON FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914

IRON FOR FOWLS. Iron is present in the fowl's body; part of this iron is in an organised. form in the red corpuscles of the blood. - The total amount of iron . is small, but nevertheless, it is of great importance,. and a deficiency re sults in anaemia. One frequently finds that eggs laid. by insufliciently fed fowls have pale yolks. The coloring of the yolk is due to pigments, and, possibly, to the phospholipine termed lecithin. Iron, m an organised form, is found in the 'ash of the egg. Vegetable foods, es pecially clover and lucerne, are, rich in minerals, and their use results in richly-colored yolks. Anaemic fowls may be easily ereated by administer ing to each five drops of perchloride of iron in a teaspoon of well-sweeten ed milk. This is a very' cheap tonic, and is better in many ways than the ordinary sulphate of iron (copperas).

FATTENING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914

FATTENING POULTRY. The best and, at the same time, most economical method of fattening all kinds of poultry is to keep them in confinement for a short time' before they are required for table. A good deal of judgment, however, has to be: exercised in deciding the length of:! tlnine this confinement is to last, for3 if overdone, even in the slightest de gree, the birds rapidly lose flesh and go back in condition. Strange as it may seem; once this begins, " no a.mount of feeding will restore either their weight or condition till after they have regained their liberty again.. For this reason the poultry must be confined for too long a period before they are required.

DAD. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914

DAD. - --By Walt Mason. Dad ambles home at close of day, and, though he's tired and sore, he joins the children in their play upon the cottage floor. He seems to share in full the glee that stirs their hope-. ful hearts. A dad adjustable is he, a dad of many ,parts. Now he is slain in mimic ,wars and proves a lovely corpse; and now he is a train .,r cars, again he is a horse. He is a rooster or a mouse, a monarch or a gnome- it's always Christmas in the house whien good old dad comes home! And when he's tired of being all the creatures in the zoo he leans his chair against the wall and talks an hour or two. Who ever heard such wondrous tales as dad knows how to tell? Of palaces in far-off vales, where mighty giants dwell; of maiden stolen from her bower, of knight in brave array, who dares the frowning giant's power and takes the maid away. And so he talks until each tot is nodding in his c' air; it's always Christmas in the cot ,when good old dad is there! December's final week dep...

Look After Your Bicycle! [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914

Look After Your Bicycle! In few details of his everyday life is the average cyclist so -care less as in his treatment of a bicycle, and yet it is probable that none other of his possessions re pays with such generous interest any slight attention bestowed upon it. Few men venture out into the world without having their boots polished, their clothes carefully dusted, and a general air of respect ability imparted to their appear ance by the process known as " grooming," but how many take the smallest trouble to preserve the good looks of a bicycle, or even to keep it in decent running order. The question of appearance is of course chiefly one of personal taste, and we do not suggest that it is necessarily a reflection upon a rider when his machine is dusty and travel stained ; but there is often a connection between clean liness and efficiency, and a cyclist who neglects to maintain his mount in good riding condition is cer tainly losing some of the pleasure that ought to he his.

The Two Financiers. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914

The Two Financiers. One day two London financiers who were partners, discovered, that an office boy in, their employ had been tampering with the petty cash. One of them was so much enraged that he desired to send for the police forthwith, but the other was a calm and just man. He took a mnore moder ate and iihuina view of the situation. "Nay, nay, partner," he said, let us always remember that we began in a small way ourselves." During a winter visit to Florida, An drew Carnegie attended a service in a little negro church. When the contri bution plate came around, Mr. Carne gie dropped a five dollar bill upon it. After the contents of the plate had been counted, the clergyman arose and announced: "Brethren and sisteren, the collection this evening seems to figure up six dollars and forty-four cents; and if the five-dollar bill contributed by the gentleman from the North Is genu ine, the repairs on the sanctuary will begin immediately."

How t Neutralise Dangerous Stomach Acids. PiFew people besides physicians E realise the importance of, keeping t the food contents of the'stomach frte from acid fermentation. Healthy normal digestion cannot t take place while the delicate lining of the stomach is being inflamed and distended by acid and wind the results of fermenting food in the stomach. To secure perfect digestion, fermentation must be stopped or prevented, and the acid nientralised. For this • purpose physicians usually recommend getting a littlebisurated magnesia from the chemist and taking half a teaspoonful in a little hot or cold water immediately after eating. They recommend bisurated mag nesia because it is pleasant to take, has no disagreeable after effects, and instantly stops fermentation, neutralises the acid and makes the sour acid food bland, sweet and easily digested. The regular use of bisurated magnesia-be sure you get the bisurated, as other kinds of mag desia are of little value-is an abso lute gu...

CRUSHING REBUKE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914

CRUSHING REBUKE. In the early days of railways, on some of the lines smoking was not allowed at all, either in the trainis or on the station buildings. One day a station-master of a large station, a man noted for his conceit and pomposity, descried a gentleman racing the platform with a cigar in his mouth. He at once accosted the offender and requested him forthwith to stop smoking. The gentleman took no notice of this command, but con tinued to walk, emitting a silvery cloud. The statiomnmaster asked him to stop smoking more peremptorily than before; but still the owner of the Havana maintained a provoking dis regard. A third time the order was repeated, accompanied with the threat that if the obstinate sinner did not obey he would be handed over to the tender mercies of the porters. The stranger took no more heed than before, so at last the official, completely losing his temper, pulled the cigar out of the smoker's mouth and flung it away. This violent act produced no more effect...

A WEIRD PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914

A WEIRD PROCESSION. Five hundred snake-charmers, sounding weird notes on their pipes, formed the unusual yet picturesque procession that followed to his.grave Katch Barak, a man of big renown in lis business, who died in terrible agony as the result of a cobra bite received while practising his profes sion in the neighborhood of Garden lteach, India." "Guru," or god, he had become dub bed by the people amongst whom he lived, such was his intluence over poisonous reptiles. HIis services were sought recently by a neighbor who had missed many owils from his com pound. Going at dusk one day, the snake-charmer discovered a cobra of unusual size amongst the birds, so formidable, in fact, that he postponed 'his attempt to capture it until day light, when he was successful in se curing it. Instead of dispatching the snake at once, he took it to the local bazaar for the edification of the natives. On attempting to extract its fangs, the cobra wriggled free and darted at its captor, who was b...

CARE OF CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914

CARE OF CREAM. For the factory manger to turn out a first-grade butter he requires the help of the farmer. The cream must be delivered in the best order pos sible. Cleanliness in the dairy is an essential condition. Cream cans are returned washed, but it is very neces sary that they should be thoroughly cleansed and scalded again at the farm before use. For segarating, a special room should be provided, at least 30 yards to windward of the milking shed, have a concrete floor, be- provided with good drainage, well ventilated; and have a good supply of water. The milk should be separated as soon as possible, and while the animal heat is in the milk. The cream should at once be cooled to the lowest possible temperature; and, as 'the water required is small, this should present no serious difficulty. Under no circumstances should cream from one skimming be mixed with cream from another skimming unless it has first been well cooled. The most unsatisfactory of all suppliers is the man who...

Almost as strange a case was that of a Russian woman condemned to Siberia not long ago. ~She had been married to twenty husbands and had treated them all alike, running away trom each in turn and taking all their portable property wvit-hcr. -heo was a most attractive woman, and highly eaucated. A, woman named Schmeyer, of Sennsylvania, was sent to prison not long ago for bigamy. Though she was only twenty-seven years old, she had married twelve mien in ten years.
