COOKED OR UNCOOKED FOOD FOR PIGS. WHICH IS BEST? [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914
cookED OR0UNCOOKEO FOOD FOR PIGS. WHICH IS BEST ? SThe economic value of cooking food: for pigs is irequently discusei, anti ipodn the point divergent views ex pressed. An interesting`: expeimuient upon the subject has been conductu?i by one of the agrl6ulural higli schools in Wales, and tue results there e btilin ed go to indicate that tnere is a slight pront in favour of cooking food. oix pigs were used in-the experiment, be ing of the large Yorkshire and Berk shire cross. They were fifteen weeks old at the beginning. The ration given to lot one was 31 lb boiled potatoes, 2; lb barley meal; and to lot two thu same quantities, only the potatoes were raw. The potatoes were boiled in sufficient quantity to last a wee?, and were supplied cold, whereas thu potatoes in the case of the seoond ro tion were pulped after being thorough ly washed. The potatoes and meal were mixed with water and tihen sup plied to the pigs. The total gain :n the case of the lot which had the boil ed potatoes ...
ENSILAGE—THE FAVORITE FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914
ENSILAGE--THE ''AVORITE FODDER. (By "Agriculturalist" in "New Zealand Dairyman.") That the feeding of o;ws is one of the most important ma?ei'rs connecteu with dairying, no one can gainsay, but of the many foods m general use, I will at present touch on only one-ensil age. No0 argument, to my mind, could be adduced against the use o01 ensilage, and any contention to justify the setting aside of fodder of such para mount importance would not hold ground in the face of practical experi ence on the dairy farm Ensilago contains no substance that would in any way tend to interfere with the organ isms of the cow, while it contains in little acid. that its color is not objec tionable. :It can be made wihen nay cannot, and even. this is an nimportant point, especially in Southland and Tar anali where the weather is so variable. It' may not supersede hay-making, b ., that is probably because of the varie,'y of -uses which the colonial farmer put: hay to. RIegarding the preparation of ensilag...

IN A FRIENDLY SORT OF WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914
IN A FRIENDLY- SORT OF WAY. When- a man' ain't got a cent and he's feeling kind o' blue, And thie clouds hang dark and heavy and won't let the sunishine through,' It's a great thing, ,O my brethren, for a fellow just to lay His hand upon jour shoulder in a friendly sort o' way. It makes a man 'feel curious, it makes the teardrops start, An'" you sort o' feels a flutter in the region" of the heart; You can't look up and meet his eyes, you don't know what to say, When his hand is on your shoulder in a friendly sort o' way. Oh, the world's a ourious compound with its 'honey and its gall, With its cares and bitter crosses, but a good world after all; An' a good God must have made leastwa.ys that is what I say, When a hand is on your shoulder .in a friendly sort of way.

HOME-CURED BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914
HOME-CURED BACON. Somne time ago we referred to a bacon curing demonstration held at Bathurse, under the auspices of the local A., iL., and P. Association, the' demonstrator being Mr. D. tHogarth, of that city. The process adopted is one that has been in vogue among certain families, in the Nortn of England for centuries, and may be considered one of those old family secrets, known only to a limited number, and highly profitable to the owners. At the demonstration, 11 pigs of varying weight, breed, and feeding were treateu. Some of them' weighed under 200 lb., while a couple turned the scale at 340 and 350 lb respectively. 'Ail of the bacon has since been out into, and in every case satisfaction has been expressed as to the quality of the `product. One of the owners nas sold ''all that-he could spare of the bacon at 1i per lb, and would make a great. fa vor of selling the hams at l/i per tb. The other owners have,, so far, refused to sell at any price. Since the article appeared Mr....

ELECTRIC STERILISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914
ELECTRIC: STERILISATION. The importalice ndwadays attached iafter age-long 'neglect-ro : securlng milk' in a 'condition: as nearly as pos sble free :fro?i disdase gerinm of every kind gives special intereds to a muout of electrio sterdlisation invented by a Liverpool. doctor. LLitnerto th?e mode pursued to' preserve -milk in full fresh auss of condition for she considerable length of time niecesai' for its distri b ution and consumption has been Lo heat the liquid to a temperacure which kills tuhe microbes, and then to prevent the access of further' microbes by se curing it in air-tight" bottles, after whica the freshness seems to be pre served indefinitely.. An objection to tile method is that the neating of the milk is in effeot a cooking process, whioeh so far changes the nature of tlhe constituents as to render them less readily nutritious. Dr: J. Ai. BaG tie, of Liverpool, however, sterlises the: milk by electric current, and thus avoids heating it at all.
PIGS AS BAROMETRS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 20 January 1914
P. Ii PGS AS BAROMETAS. Probably the last thing that one wouldi expeot to indicate changes in the weather is a pig's tail. Bpowever, according to the skipper of a Nor xvegian: sailing ship, who usually has a porker or two on board, one could scarcely have a more reliable barom-. eter . When a weather. disturbance is coming on, the tails of the plgs, usually kinky, . stiaighten out anrd their ears droop. With the barometer reading between 29.90 and 30 the. tails begin to forecast approach of a. trough: of low pressure. When the reading gets below 29.50 the pigs seek cover, and the storm" is pretty sure to burst within five hours. But a high baro-' meter puts a beautiful twist in the tails, and the ears stand jauntily stiff and with a trifle of a cant forward.

CROSS-LEGGED HABIT. PERSONS WHO SIT CARELESSLY. Fully 80 per cent. of travellers by tramway car and omnibus sit cross legged. That is the opinion of a cor respondent who' has taken particular no0ice of his fellow passengers.` - The cross-legged habit when you sit down is provocative of grave harm to '·U. body. Indeed, in time, a -Lon don doctor who told "The Daily Mir ror," it produces varicose veins if the person regularly adopts this and no o-her attitude.
