SCALY LEGS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914
SCALY LEGS. Scaly legs are contagious (as are most diseases of poultry), and can be cured by washing with carbolic soap and hot water, painting _legs with kerosene-or wood preserving oil oc- casionally. This unsightly enlairge mnent of the leg is caused by a para site (sarcoptes mutans), and is close ly associated with uncleanliness and over-crowded runs.
The Heart of a Girl. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER III.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914
The Heart of a Girl. By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER IIi:--Continued. Queenie drew back a pace as Mi chael Thorne stepped into the gas-lit passage 'without invitation. He was much better dressed than when he quitted the house four months ,back. He was looking several years older. Perhaps it was the stress and strain of getting the better of his fellow-gamblers in the copper market, where fortunes were made and men went smash in a day. He had lost flesh, and the protrusion of his pow erful lower jaw seemed more pro nounced, his eyes deper set and their expression more vague, more secret ire. HIe looked a vulgarian still. No one could have called him good-look ing, this young-old man, who a few months back was merely regarded as a punctual, plodding clerk. Yet pretty, nineteen-year-o!d Beryl Price wor shipped him hopelessly-with the characteristic hopelessness of nine teen. Dogged strength was perhaps ...
SMOKING WHILE MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914
SMOKING WHILE MILKING. Do not allow dogs or loafers to be round at milking time. If any acci dent occurs by which a pail-full or partly full of milk becomes dirty, do not try to remedy this by straining, but reject all this milk, and rinse the pail. We remember one day, when on a visit, seeing a milking hand smoking a pipe. Suddenly, he spoke to the cow, and the pipe fell from the man's mouth -into the - bucket. ,He made one grab into the inilk-bucket, put the wet pipe into his pocket, and went on milking! Then, what about the ash from a pipe or cigarette fall ing about everywhere? Sack the man or boy who smokes while milking.

WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914
WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? Why, asks an expert, do we import citrus fruit from Italy? We nave conditions, here favorable to the growing of first class fruit. We can produce citrus fruit here equal to vhat we receive from Italy, if pro per cultural methods .are practised. The soil is here, and the climatic condition. The Italian fruit has a thin skin, the correct flavor, and its keeping quality is world-renowned. Yet some of our locally-produced oran ges will compare favorably with theirs, but to oust the imported ar ticles growers should endeavor to produce more of this class. The thin skinned varieties are just as easily grown as the inferior types, and, asi far as flavor is concerned, many of our up-to-date growers produce fruit every bit as good as that imported better in fact, but the drawback is that we do not get enough, nor does it always combine with the commer cially-essential thin skin.
PIGS FOR BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914
PIGS FOR BACON. Certain modifications in the meth ods of killing and preparing pigs for bacon have been necessary in recent y?ears to meet the demands of the consumer and curer. Among these has been the movement in favor of less fat and, more lean, what is pre ferred now being a tasty, mild-flavor ed, somewhat lean bacon, which is finely streaked with fat and of firm texture. It is occasionally found in dealing with carcases for either pork or ba con that there exists an abnormal condition in the texture of fibre of the flesh. It is soft, yields to pres sure, is flabby, and possesses an un natural greasiness. This class of flesh invariably cures badly, and pro duces inferior bacon. Observation has taught that it is mainly due to the various classes of food being used in improper proportions. Further experieide has shown that this influence is more pronounced dur ing winter. Low temperatures exert a change upon the nature of the body fat. Animals exposed to cold are prone to produce ...

GRIT A NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 15 January 1914
GRIT A NECESSITY. A lack of this causes a slow supply of eggs, and if fowls have not the materials for digesting their food, it is impossible for them to get on, for the proper nutriment must be extract ed from the food for the production of eggs. Oyster shell grit for lime, as well as sea shell or pebbly beach grit, is best for the purpose, as it is very hard and sharp, and a small quantity goes a long way. It should be kept in a trough in the run for the fowls to help themselves to.
