How Rain Bores Holes. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 8 January 1914
How Rain Bores Holes. }When rain falls it does iot ac tually soak into the earth, but bores its way in, forming tiny 'tubes. These tuibes ire so small, that it would be impossible to insert a hair in one of themr without' blirsting its Salls. Sometimes the tubes, are. blored down to a depth of four or five 'feet. When the surface dries, the water evapordtes frWom. the tubes, just as it would .fronm ad pipe. If the tube is twisted it-takes longer for the water' to. evaporatei If one takes 'a, rhlke. and stirs the ground .iifter' each rain, he breaks the tops of the tubes, and the water will stand in them for months.

To Thee, My Master, I offer my prayer : Feed me, water me, and care for me, when the day's work is done provide me with shelter, a clean, dry bed, and a stall wide enough for me to lie down in comfort.

THE FARM. WHY GIRLS LEAVE THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 8 January 1914
THE FARM. WHY GIRLS LEAVE THE FARM. So much has been said about why boys leave the farm, but how about the girls? What right has a girl on the farm ? In many cases, none at all, you might say. If she wants to go to a party or dance she must ask father or mother ; and what will they say ? No I And how do you think she feels if she bears of other girls going, and after they get back she-hears them talk of the good times they had. I think after a girl gets to lie eighteen or nineteen her parents should allow her to go out with her girl and boy friends to parties or wherever there is-a social gathering. Of course, in somne towns themr are boys, and girls as well, that parents would not want their girls to keel, company with, but this isn't always' the case. And how are the girls treated about the farm work ? They must do all the house work, all the scrubbing, baking, washing,' ironing, and -work in the garden, besides milk ing the cows, hauling hay, cleaninu the cow barns, hauling manur...
STUMP CLEARING BY ACIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 8 January 1914
STUMP CLEARING BY ACIDS. -4--t-- A New South Wales farmer report ed as having been successful in des troying stumps with a mixture of sulphuric and nitric acid. In treating a swamp stump, 3ft. 6in. In diameter, 6d worth of acids was put in en augur hole, and in five weeks time the whole stump and roots had iso rotted that they could be knocked to pieces with a hoe. A stump 3ft. in diameter would take about half a pint each of acids, and a smaller ome less. The acids are used in equal quantities, and nothing is added ti, them. A hole is bored in the stump with a 2-inch augur, deep enough to hold the quantity of acid to be used. and then one acid is poured in and the other added. Thie hole is then plugged airtight with a wooden plug. Not more than one pint of acids (half a pint of each) should be mixed at one time. Mr Guthrie, New South Wales Government Chemist, says: "There should be no risk attendline the mixing of the above quantities, provided the sulphuric acid is ad1', to,the ni...
SALTING COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 8 January 1914
SALTING COWS. Cows that are good producers i?si approximately three ounces of sil per day; and that dairy catlet should have salt is one of the very important lquestions many of us d, not understand, and therefore nee lect, writes a Canadian dairy farm er. All animals which consume Isrcr quantities of vegetable matter ro.jl! r salt. Salt is required to expel the cxces? of potash from the animals body which is taken in with the vegctahl. foodl. Cows which do not get sutli cient'salt gradually change to a con dition of low vitality indicated by rodgh" coat, which results in a final breakdown. If salt is supplied wheI in this condition, recovery is pos sible. There is no question that salt is absolutely essential to the prcserva tion of the health of milk-producing herds, while the expense of salting cows is so trifling that it cannot lie used as an excuse for not atten-in: to such a weighty consideration. In Italy marriage brokers are a regular institution. They have rer ket-books fil...

CEMENT IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 8 January 1914
CEMENT IN THE DAIRY4 In " our visits among: the . dairy farms, the creameries and the cheese factories it is gratifying to note the increasing i tendency ` to use cement and concrete construction. . It. does not only show that those wo'o em ploy this class of construction '. have an eye to durability, efficiency and economy, but it indicates a perman ency attached. to the business,e that was less prevalent not many years ago. Then a dairyman built a shack for a barn, with dirt floors, and no provision for drainage. His dairy house was a flimsy shed. He figured that this kind of construction, un sanitary, cheap and flimsy as it was, would last him a few years, by which time he hoped to be fortunate enough to beout of the business. Have you ever noticed that it is the class of people who think like this that have to stay in it the ; longest whether they choose to or not? The dairyman with the right idea of economy, and who wants satisfac tion and good service, goes: in for cement cons...
