Tank Measurements. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 4 April 1902

Tank Measurements. A quick method of measuring tank (earth excavati m) is as follows : To the length on the top add half the length of the bottom and multiply by the width on top- Next add half of the top length to the whole of the bottom length and multi ply the width of the bottom. Add the two quotients together and multiply by a third of the depth. This will give you the cubical contents in feet, divide by 27 and you get the contents in cubic yards Illustrated as follows: Suppose the J. ? 1- lOOFf lnnm anil 1 nflO uiua. lucoouico * wide, and at bottom 48ft. long and 28ft. wide, the depth being 12ft. and the slopes 1 in 3ft-.

INCUBATORS AND BROODERS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 4 April 1902

INCUBATORS AND BROODERS. . There has been a remarkable increase I in the use of incubators and brooders in the last few years, and as with all new inventions their adoption was slow at first because of the many failureB with new and crude machines ; but after they became perfected, their general use became largely a matter of prica and the use to which they can be put. The in cubator was first taken in hand and after a time greatly improved, and then the brooder. Whilst there are still many points of difference between those manu facturers — as to hot air or hot water heat, moisture or no moisture, coolincr and ventilation — yet most of the incubators now on sale will hatch eggs satisfactorily in the hands of a careful person. By the use of common sense, and following the instructions laid down by the makers, even a beginner can expect good hatches from fertile e/gs. With experience hatches of seventy to ninety per cent, of fertile eg^s are commonly obtained. The incubator has reach...

DESTROYING WEEVIL IN GRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 4 April 1902

'DESTROYING WEEVIL IN GRAIN. Asa means towards preventing insects from, getting into newly-threshed wheat care shonld be taken that the bins are perfectly clean. If bins or storehouses are thoroughly cleaned and whitewashed before the grain is placed in them, many cracks and crevices that harbor insects are stopped np.

Never purchase for tha feed lot a steer that has been raised in a semi-starred condition, for no amount of feed will ever make amends for the want of an abundance of nutritious feed in early life. Secure the feeders at least a year before you intend beginning to fatten them, and get all the increase of weight pOBBible from rough and inexpensive food.

He was so stripling suddenly smitten by calf-love, but a grown man of sixand iwemy years, ana as ne was a barrister dt profession, there was some reason to as sume that he was at least hard-headed. . As a matter of fact, he bad ample justi fication for his involuntary rhapsody. The girl in the box was very beautiful; there could be no tiro opinions about her beauty.
