The Poultry Yard. THE INCUBATOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Yarragon, Trafalgar & Moe Settlement News — 2 June 1904

The -Poultry Yard.--y i . THE INCUBATOR. In working an incubator^ much _pfl the success of the operation depends! upon the attention given t6 the lamp,! The first* point to bear in jnind is to 1 look after the lamp yourself. The lamp should be trimmed every day, and the best time for doing this is ill the morning, so that if it is not burning rightly it map be adjusted before night-. Never use a pair of scissors in trimming the lamp, but with a knife scrape off the charred portion of the wick, until the- wick1 is quite even with the tube. The wick tube should be kept true and square, not being jammed or bent in any way. If bent so as to make the opening larger in any place, the flame will always Durn irregularly and smell badly. See that the lamp burns true befpre leaving it. The cause of smok ing lamps is either neglect in keep : ing them clean, or from the- tempera ture in the room rising considerably. iBe careful to keep the'perforated brass under _the cone clean and free from al...

He then had to tramp back to the office, when the business was fixed up. I think certain days and certain hours should be fixed so as a man will not travel on a fool's errand to Moe.
