SELECT GOOD BROOD SOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 February 1912

bel'ect GOOD BKuuu auv\». Many a sow farrows pies that «r« large, strong and vigorous at birth, but soon become poor, puny and value less from the fact that the mother is a poor milker. This often may be trac ed directly to the feeder^ who fails to supply her with miik producing food in proportions to her reouirelneut ; but, like dairy cows, there are sows in which the miikin? instinct has been .-.0 inbred that they convert the same food into a much larger flow of milk than . other sows equally -well fed.--*-- As -'thiK first three weeks -after birth the- pig must- look to its mother for all its nour ishment it becomes highly important that we breed from only those sows that are heavy milkers. The pig is made or ruined while fo' lowing its m--- ther7^then it should be apparent to all that we should cherish and perpetuate »ur families of large milking sows and weed out all the poor and indifferesic ones. It makes but little odd3 how; care fully you mate your breeders if you fail to f...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 February 1912

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. When choosing apples, take those that weigh heaviest; they will 'be the best fruit. Damp salt will take off the discolor ations on cups and saucers caused by tea and careless washing. Dishes washed in ammonia water will be clean and bright, and glass and silver can in no other way be so effi ciently done. Washing the baby's eyes with warm water in which has been dissolved a little borax is cleansing and good for weak eyes. A little vinegar kept boiling on the stove while onions or cabbage are Cooking will prevent the disagreeable odor going through the house. When the gilt frames of pictures or looking-glasses, or the mouldings of rooms have specks of dirt upon them from flies or otner causes, they may be cleaned with white of egg, laid on with a camel's-Jiair brush. If a lemon has been cut and only half used, the remaining half may be preserved by placing it cut side down wards on a plate and covering with a glass. This method excludes the air, and will keep the le...

THE BACON PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 February 1912

THE BACON PIG. Mr. Sweaney, manager of the In^ verell Co-operative Butter Company's factory, N.S.W., has issued some notes to those who raise bacon pigs, de scribing what the market requires, on the occasion of the opening of a new bacon factory by the company. He says that the market requires a side of bacon made from a pig weighing about 1201b. when dressed. The extra heavy and over-fat meats are not sought after. SuDDliers will need to aim at sending in pigs weighing cer tainly not less than 901b., or more than 1401b., the most desirable weights for the first grade. Such will require to be properly finished off by feeding grain or milk. Though lucerne is a most valuable food for pig-raising, it must not he fed on any account dur ing the last six or eight weeks. These weights should be attained by pigs from five to six months old, and dairymen should not keep a breed that requires a longer period, especially when milk forms the major portion of the food. In successful pig-raising,...

Did His Best. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 February 1912

Did His Best. 'I've ' come to see about the man tles, miss.' 'Oh, yes. I'm glad you have come so soon; will you step into the draw ing-room ?'!_ The young man stepped; he was pleased with his pleasant reception. After a while ma came in and said, 'How do?' So sorry to trouble him, - but would he mind if they tried the mantles on?' Her daughter's was a trifle too full, and her own a trifle too long, she thought. Perhaps he would be good enough to see. The young man said he would be only too delighted. The two elegant mantles in the latest style which were lying across the back of the sofa were then donned, and the young man said he thought they looked charming. Yes, perhaps a little alteration was required, but — if they would excuse him he would be glad if they would let him get on with his work and show him the gasburn ers that were requiring fresh mantles. Why! Wasn't he from Jiggins and Jugginses? Oh, no! He was the young man that attended to the mantles from the gas company! Som...

THE KNOCKER. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 February 1912

THE KNOCKER. If you take a gloomy view as your journey you pursue, you will have a* weary jaunt getting nothing that you want, for the man who always knocks finds his pathway strewn with rocks. In our village there's a man who has followed up this plan, saying, as he jogged along, that all things on earth are wrong; and the gods have weary grown of his dismal monotone and they surely make him prance every time they have a chance. If a thun derstorm is loose lightning hits his cheap caboose; if a flood is raging round he's the only one that's drown ed; if the- fire fiend visits town it will burn his haystacks down; and his pigs all roam astray and his hens have ceased to lay, and his daughters all elope and his heart is void of hope. For the man who always wails of mis fortune seldom fails to encounter all there is of that melancholy biz. — Walt. Mason.

RAPE AND LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 16 February 1912

RAPE AND LUCERNE. After Iho recent rams crops may be largely sown.' But before sowing the land should be brought to a very fine tilth, for the seed being so small it will not readily germinate unless the land is very finely prepared. River Hats are generally found the most suitable land to sow lucerne upon. But the best way to find out whether a certain part nf the farm will grow lucerne or not, is to give it a trial, that is for a period » . 1 . ? it. ? 1.

Some experiments on the vaccination of cattle against tuberculosis have re cently been published by Dr. Leor.ard Pearson, State veterinarian of Pennsyl vania, and Dr. S. H. Gilliland.

A SALT 'BEARING PLANT. The following iB aa extract from, a report of an interview a representative ot .the 'Brisbane Courier' had last week with Mr J. Leahy, member for Bulloo: Some specimens of a salt bearing plant were brought in by. the member foi Bulloo to be submitted to Mr F. M Bailey, The Government Botanist. Th» plant bears a pretty little blue flower, and on its leaves crystals of salt. '1 had not seen it ia the west before,' said Mr Leaky, 'but it grow3 very profuse ly, and the man who showed it to me told me that he was with a party wh« u-mi xcesn meat, out no san, ana were longing for the latter when an old bushman went away, plucked a few sprays, and coming back shook them over the meat, which was then nicely salted.'
