At the present time there are on the farm at Woburn thirteen yearlings and two calves born this year, and a healthier lot no one could wish to sec, in spite of the fact that their dams reacted to the test shortly be fore parturition. AH that has been done is to separate the calves from the cows immediately ;iftor birth, "and remove them to a farm a mile away, where they have be-'ti reared under circumstances that prevent direct or indirect contact with the tuberculous cattle.

CARE FOR THE MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 January 1914
CARE FOR THE MILK. The following statement, made by Professor 0. F. Hunaikcr before the farmers attending . the short courses at Purdue, sums up in a few wordfi tho situation relative to the care of milk, and cream on the farm : j "Cleanliness and low temperature are the fundamental essentials in the proper care and handling of milk and cream, regardless of what disposition may be made of the product. The purpose of these essentials is to pre vent or retard bacterial fermenta tions which shorten the life and im pair the keeping quality and whole someness of mil'i and its products. ! When the dairyman disregards these essentials he becomes a menace to the health and life of the consumer j and a demoralising factor of the markets of dairy products, curtailing the financial success of his own busi- ! ness.

LADY FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 January 1914
1ADY FARMERS. Sedgewick, a community m that district of the Western Canadian prairies, known as Central Alberta, is six thousand' miles distant from Great Britain, but it is the location of a colony of settlers from the Old Country who were attracted to the ready-made farms prepared here by-, tiie Canadian Pacific Railway. ■ Most of the farmers under this scheme are married men, but on one of the farms on this colony are two bachelor girls (they are too young to be referred to as spinsters). To this farm Mr. H. A. Kennedy, a ■'well known writer, recently paid a visit. "Two young ladies," lie says, "are working in partnership. They ti.nd no difficulty in tho arrangement, though the average farmer out there -assurrs you that partnerships arc unwork able in such a business. Each mem ber is responsible for her own depart ment, but is always ready to help the other. 'Miss Wittrick looks after the dairy and the house,' said her partner, Miss Jack May, "arid she is a beautiful butter maker...
WATT MINISTRY PROGRAMME. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 16 January 1914
WATT MINISTRY PRO GRAMME. The country districts are well repre sented in the new Watt Ministry, and the programme, as outlined in Mr. Watt's speech at Essendon, is essenti ally a country programme. A sus tained programme policy of railway extension, and increased activity in dealing with immigration, are its princi pal features. These are questions in which the progress of the State is in timately bound up, and a Ministry which will give earnest attention to them will merit the support of all sec tions of the Liberal Party. There are still great areas of the country districts which are only partially developed, and which must remain so until they are linked up with the railway system. Land 20 or 30 miles from a railway station, and without good roads, cannot" be turned to its best use. There is scarcely a country electorate' in the State which does not afford shocking, examples of these conditions. A wise* and sustained system of railway ex tension would increase the productive capa...

Archbishop Mannix and Canon Hughes, the Commissioner of Police, and a lady doctor, the American, French, and German consuls and Mr. " Snowy" Baker, the famous surf champion, The views of these varied folk, it may be added, are illustrated with a number of magnificent camera views that seem also to ofier arguments on both sides of the vexed question: " Should Mixed Bathing Be Encourged ?" The majoritory of people asked replied in favour of mixed bathing—within reason able limits. The Lord Mayor of Mel bourne thinks that "the sea is quite big enough for both men and women to swim ...
