Facts & Fancies. DENMARK'S ANCIENT FLAG. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
Facts & Fancies. DENMARK'S ANCIENT FLAG. The flag of Denmark, a plain red banner 'bearing on it a white cross, is the oldest flag now in existence. For over 300 years both Norway and Sweden were united with Denmark under this flag. In the year 1219 King Waldemar of Denmark, when leading his troops to battle against the. Livonians, saw or thought he saw a bright light in the form of a cross in the sky. He hejd this ap pearance to be a promise of divine aid, and pressed forward to victory. From this time he had the cross placed on the flag of 'his cfountry. and called it the Dannebrog, that is, the strength of Denmark.

A HOBBY AND A BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
A HOBBY AND A BUSINESS. A writer in 'Poultry' gives some commonsense advice on the acquisi tion of poultry knowledge. I would advise, he says, anyone who wishes to make poultry-keeping the 'busi- ness of life' to devote the whole of the time he can spare from his regu I ? ......ntmn tn nhtatflW n thor- ' lar uttupo''' «?' ? ? t- — — . ough knowledge of fowls and their management. Commence with a few fowls only, and keep a careful record of everything connected with them. Treat your hobby as though it were a business. Continue on these lines until you have a complete practical knowledge of poultry and have made a name for yourself as a breeder of good stock. How long a period must elapse before this desirable point will be arrived at depends on circumstances. Some t aspirants have more time to devote to hob bies than others, but natural ap titude and inclination, have more to do with the beginner's progress than anything else.

The Poultry Run. A GOOD NEST-BOX. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
[?] m A GOOD NESTBOX Hens are capable of hatching much larger broods than is ^gener ally imagined, so long as they are given proper nest-boxes aind not ex pected to rear large families during the cold weather. A good type of nest-box is 1ft inches square and 18 hi-rh. A shutter secured hv buttons composes nearly the entire front, But a slit two inches wide at the top is left open. These boxes are built in fives, and placed in tiers three high. The nests are formed of hay on the bare boards, the corners be ing carefully . filled up. The hens should «be taken off and tethered in the open every day, fed on maize, watered, and supplied with ashes. They should never be allowed to leave the nest at will. The proper time for a hen to be off the nest in cold weather is ten minutes, and in hot weather from fifteen to twenty minutes, or even half-an-hour.
The Farmer. CHEESE FROM PASTEURISED MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
The. Farmer. . ? ; ? 9 ? CHEESE FROM PASTEURISED - MILK. For some time In the past ex periments on various cheese prob lems have been conducted by the Wisconsin Experiment Station and the Dairy Division of the United States Department of Agriculture, including the use of pasteurised milk for cheese making. Many at tempts have been made to acconi nlioU f Um Kilt- mama tUom »???!*_ piiau itiia ciiU) uui uuuc ui 1111.111 auv cessful. The difficulty has been that pasteurised milk could not be properly coagulated with rennet. It required to be ripened with a start er for several hours after pasteuris ing, which made the process very long; but the difficulties are now claimed to have been at last over come. The advantages from pasteuris ing milk for cheese making are numerous. Any disease germs pre sent in milk, such as those which produce tuberculosis or typhoid fever, can be killed by pasteurising at the proper temperature. Pasteur ising might be expected also to kill those bacteria whi...
A DEADLY DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
A DEADLY DISEASE. Enteritis is a malady which does its deadly work quickly and is the cause of the loss of : many young chickens. At night .. they seem all right, and in the morning they are dead. If- prompt measures are not taken it very quickly spreads. ; Any chicks; which are found dead -from this disease must be burnt-— hot bur ied. The other birds should = be caret fullty examined and- any. that are wet - and sticky round the vent must.h£ 'isolated It is also safest to n»v£ the whole flock to fresh, clean ground? The .old run should be thoroughly cleaned . by strewing fresh burnt lime upon the ground and watering. After a few days the ground should be turned over. The birds should be given water which contains roup powder of wat er slightly tinted with permanganate of potash. The worst cases require somewhat different treatment how ever. These shouldsbe given about six drops of chlorodyne about every three hours in warm water; ; This will generally check the disease and effect ...
A FEEDING EXPERIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
A FEEDING EXPERIMENT. An experiment has recently been conducted at an American station on the feeding of chickens, which is of special interest to poultrykeep ers. In the experiment two pens of chickens were, confined at the same time, both lots consisting of the same number of birds of equal gross weight. The same mixture of solid food was supplied to both, the only difference being that one lot hadj only water to drink, while the other had, in addition to water, all the milk they could consume. The trial lasted six weeks. The most notice able results were in the case in which the milk drinkers gained fif teen pounds in weight in the same time as the water-drinkers gained seven and a half pounds- The cost in food to produce one pound of chicken without milk worked out at ad., and with milk the cost per pound came to only i}d. In the six weeks the lot which had milk to drink consumed ten pounds more of solid food than those that were con fined to water.

SIMPLEST FORM OF AIR MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
v SIMPLEST FORM OF AIR MACHINE. The simplest form of heavier fhan-air machine is the stiff card or , letter which you may spin across the room. If you give it just the right twirl, it will glide on a level for many feet. There are many ways besides of folding a sheet of ctifF naner which will convert it in - to a surprisingly clever little air ship. With a little practice these gliders may be made to fly ten or twenty times their own length, which would be relatively a very - creditable flight for the best aero plane models. There is no better way to begin the construction of a model aeroplane than by study and * experiment with these paper ships. Tlie most famous aeronauts of the day, the Wright brothers-, Curtiss, Herring, ajjd many others,, have spent years working with gliders before attempting ' to build or fly an aeroplane.
WHAT THE ANGEL SAID. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
WHAT THE ANGEL SAID. A little girl was rather given to exaggeration, and would tell wild stories. of her adventures, for which she was duly punished on the - - grounds of telling naughty stories. ? One day after her walk in the , park she ran, to her mother, exclaim ing: 'Oh, mummy, as nurse and I u'ArA ttrolLrincr in MiP nnrk A fTfeat r ? — d ? big lion sprang out, and would have eaten me up if nurse had not -pulled ? me aside.' 'You naughty child!', said her mother. 'Go to your room, and' stay there until you are sorry for telling such wicked stories, and ask i your good angel to forgive you for 1 telling such a naughty story about ''.a lion.' Half an hour later her mother went up and found her looking very penitent. 'Well,' she said, 'have you ask ed your good angel to forgive you?' 'Yes, mummy,' was the reply. 'I did ask, and he said, 'Don't mention it, Miss Brooks; I've often mistaken those big yellow poodles for lions myself !'

"A GREAT KIND ENGLISHMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
'A GREAT KIND ENGLISH MAN. The constant rumours of the closing of the Crystal Palace has caused to be retold a story of its opening day. The event coincided with the presence in London of a young American couple on their honeymoon. The husband had sav ed for many a day to give his wife the pleasure of a trip to Europe, but funds were running short, and the price for admission to the ex hibition oh the opening day was so high that one ticket only could be bought. With that tieket the young wife made her way to the ceremony, only to find that, owing to her small stature, she could not see one of the royalties and notables in the great procession. . At the thought of this disappointment _ and the waste of money represented by her ticket the tears began to flow down her cheeks. At that moment she elt two strong hands under her arms and found herself lifted higrh above the crowd. So held she saw everything, but when she was plac ed down on the ground once more it was to find herself inde...

NANCY.' VI wish I wasn't going to school,' said Nancy Mason to her sister Elsie. v ; 'Why?' asked Elsie. 'I am \ ? pleased to go.' V The two girls were sitting alone in the summer-house which separated the garden from, the orchard. Their father was a school-master, and, though he was not rich, he had con trived, to send his two daughters to ... a boarding-school. Nancy however ' was not pleased with the prospect, ? and she went on — 'It is very nice for you, Elsie; you are clever and will get on well with the teachers and girls, but 1 . am so ignorant— they will never like inc.' 'Never mind, I will help' you all I can,' said Elsie, trying to -com- fort her little sister. Two days later they were jogging along in the little trap which was conveying them to the station. Their father whispered words of encour agement to them, and tried his best to console them. At last the train steamed into the station, and, after saying 'Good- bye' to their father and mother, the two little girls wer...
