THE MAN IN THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
THE MAN IN THE MOON. By A.L.S. Ia it possible that the Man in th« Moon has descended from the posi tion of a fully-credited reality to that of a mere figure of speech; but even as such he is of great use to us, es pecially when we wish to assert our ignorance of anything. When we state that we know no more than the Man in the Moon we are attributing the densest ignorance to that some what mythical personage; we at least credit him with being an agnostic of the purest water. He could scarcely be even that if he did not exist at all. By our common language we are perpetuating a remarkable article of old folk-lore. Science and-the tele scope give us their own interpretation of the features that we discern on the moon's surface, but in popular belief there was once really a man there, whatever may now have become o£ him. He was banished thither for the crime of gathering sticks on Sun day. If we refer to the Book of Num bers we find that a man who gathered sticks on the Sabbath was take...
POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
POULTRY PIOTES. j j. i A bulletin entitled "Fattening | Poultry," describing successful J methods of fattening poultry on a largo commercial scale an 1 giving | complete data on the feeding of over j 100,000 birds, has just been issued j by tlie United States Department of Agriculture. It gives information I of operations on an extensive scale and so far as known is the lirst pub lication showing the cost of produc ing a pound of gain in poultry. '•''The successful feeding of poultry depends largely on the ability ot the feeder to notice the condition of the chickens on feed," is one ot the fundamentals laid down by the j bulletin. The common practice in j poultry packing-houses is to feed j each lot seventeen days or less. Most of ths milk, fed chickens are fed fourteen days. Practically all o: the special feeding in tfcr.s country in volves the use of milk, which pro duces the ' milk-fed chickens' of the market.

The Heart of a Girl. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER III— Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
The Heart of a Girl. By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER III— Continued. Hilary Stanmore's injuries were not as .serious as at Jirst supposed. For [be time 'being that was all which mat tered to Queeuie. Shock had stunned her; but she told herself that present ly, when she could think more clear i'v, when her still terrible suspense as to Hilary's condition was relieved, this unreal charge against him must dis solve like an ugly nightmare at -wak ing. Her suffering and her suspense, only partially allayed by what the pa per told her, were relative to the man himself. If it were possible, she would travel to Hasted this night. Home—yes! She must go home first to get money for the railway fare and put together a few things. She was hurrying on again, spurred into such feverish haste by her thoughts that Beryl had trouble to keep pace with her. In Oxford-street she 'beckoned a taxi-cab. It was the latest th...

TO APPEAR AND FEEL YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
TO APPEAR AND FEEL YOUNG. A woman of uncertain years, who looked much younger than she was, took the following rules as her guide in maintaining a youthful appear ance:— Dress younger than you are. Never dross older. Never wear old ladies' clothes, no matter how old you get to be. Forget caps and wraps and shawls and easy chair gowns. Keep your figure young. You can not hope to look y'oung if your figure is old. When you look in the looking-glass gaze at yourself from tlie back, not from the front. If you look old, that is the point of view from which to re alise the fact. Beware of what Kate Field called the middle-aged figure. It is round in the shoulders and .hunched up in the belt line. There is a certain roly poly look about the woman who is older than she ought to be. Take care of your hair. Straggly hair goes with old age. Old people forget to shampoo, and they give up waving their locks. Don't let your .hands get bony. Bony fingers belong to the aged. Keep the knuckles plump...
MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
MORAL REFLECTIONS. A man's character is the sum of his intentions and his choices. A man of honor never purchases happiness at the expense of another's sorrow. Let us not seek for influence; let us simply seek to do our duty, and in fluence will inevitably follow. The most insignificant people are the most apt to sneer at others. They are safe from reprisals, and have no hope of rising in their own esteem but by lowering their neighbors. Conceit loses a man more friends and gains him mox-e enemies tnan any other foible, perhaps vice, in the world. It makes him harsh to his in feriors, and disrespectful to his bet ters. What kills men is discouragement. Jt is sitting down under trouble that destroys them; it is standing up and mocking trouble that enables them to go through it without harm. Regrets are a waste of time in every possible instance, except one. That one is the instance in which the soul entertains them thoughtfully and humbly until they becomo valu able lessons for the f...
FOR THE FARMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
FOR THE FARMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. B. Harrison, Burringbar, Tweed [liver, inquires as to the proper meth od of making a good and clieap com post heap, for manuring purposes. The compost heap is a most valu able adjunct to a farm or orchard. The principle of this method of mak ing manure is the fermentation of easily-decomposed vegetable material in the presence of earth and'lime. It is not only substances like peat, litter, straw, which form the usual basis of compost heaps that are thus decom posable, but almost every kind of or ganic substance, 'both of vegetable and animal origin, can be thus composted. Head leaves, bush scrapings, sawdust, weeds, tops and stalks of vegetables, as well as bone and animal refuse, l he operation is much slower, and sub stances like bones should be first crushed. It is also important to be sure ihat animal refuse so treated is not. derived from a diseased source. As a general method of procedure, :he following will be found satisfac tory:—Make a heap...
THE REJECTED COW. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
THE REJECTED COW. At present there is nothing to pre vent the rejected cow from finding its way into an auction yard, or even into a clearance sale, to be again the subject of disappointment to another farmer until he similarly gets rid of it. This can go on until through sheer age the cow disappears from the dairy farm, after being all its life an unprofitable drag on somebody. Unuer a better system the animal would be fattened for beef as soon as its milk-producing capacity, or rather incapacity, was discovered. Of course this immediate elimination of the unprofitable dairy cow does take place in innumerable instances, but it is obviously necessary that its fate should be automatically sealed the moment it is weighed in the balance and found wanting. Cow-testing has now fortunately become so general throughout the State that farmers would be well advised to introduce the rule that at all sales an authen ticated milking record should be pro duced with each cow offered for sale.
UTENSILS FOR RIPENING CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
UTENSILS FOR RIPENING CREAM. The most suitable utensils in which to ripen cream satisfactorily are those made of glazed earthenware or enam elled iron. This kind of vessel can be cleaned easily, and will not in jure iue cream. Tin or galvanised vessels are acted upon by the acid in the cream, and thus they become tainted with a kind of metallis flavor.
DAIRYING. THE COW YARD. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
DAIRYING. THE COW YARD. Under usual conditions, the cow yard is a serious handicap to good aarry products, it siiouid be set up on t well-drained piece of land with ilie- slope away irom the milking shed and dairy. The use oi gravel is to be recommended, aud some have employed concrete to make sure that the cows are kept away from mud and lilth. The yard should be kept clean, and the manure removed promptly and conserved at some con siderable distance from the millung shed or dairy premises. This pre caution will also greatly help in keep ing down the number of liies. The practice of milking in unsuitable sur roundings is possibly doing more to retard progress in dairying than any other existing custom.
COWS HARD TO MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
COWS HARD TO MILK. There are two methods ol' treating tiie haru-milking cow. One is to use teat plugs or diiaters. They are mereiy plugs inaue so that tney may he inserted in the end ol' the teat, where they remain between milking periods. The reason a cow milks Hard is because the sphincter muscle, which contracts the end of the teat, is rigid. The teat plugs remaining in tne teat between milking hours have a tendency gradually to distend and dilate this muscle in such a way that the cow eventually becomes easy to milk. The second method is to cut the teats, Ihus weakening the sphincter muscle This is accomplished by a teat-splitter, an instrument c/iat is in serted into the-teat. By pressing the end, small knives are pressed out in such a way that when the teat-split ter is withdrawn the muscle is sever ed. There is really no reason why one should utilise his time with hard milkers when by use of these inex pensive instruments they ni.iy be ren dered easy milkers. One precaution t...
CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. I Proper cultivation of the soil in creases the nitrifying bacteria, and this, in turn, increases productive ness—a most important consideration to the farmer. The knowledge of bac teria and their work is recent and limited; there are many in kind, and in spite of the amount of work done, scientists are only in the midst of iheir discovery. The practical far mer does well to let bacteriologists monopolise interest in the whole subject, except in so far as he can provide some conditions that have been demonstrated to be profitable. The work of bacteria, hoever, must come more and more into considera tion by the farmer, because Nature uses them to produce a vast amount of the change that is going on around us. In the consideration of the na- j ture of legumes, we must take into , account the bacteria which they have j associated with them, and through I which they obtain the atmospheric ■ nitrogen. It is true that bacteria must I have favorable conditions tha...

A True Story. Writing from Bamawm, Vic., Mr. William John Youill, late of Harvey town, Eaglehawk, Vic., says: "In re gard to the statement I gave you some years ago as to my cure of kidney complaint, I may say that a short time since I had occasion to be medi cally examined and was entirely free from any complaint." Mr. Youill's original statement was as follows: "I feel it a duty I owe to you and to suf fering humanity to send you this let ter, in the earnest hope that others who may be suffering as 1 was from that dread complaint, Bright's Disease af the Kidneys, nay take courage and learn from my experience to adopt the same method of treatment that 1 did, feeling sure that by so doing they will be saved much pain and misery, aud, perhaps, an early grave. This may seem to some a remarkable statement to make, but it can be substantiated by anyone who will take the trouble co inquire for themselves from me or ol' my friends who were with me at the time.
