DAIRYING. WHY WASH THE UDDER? [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 9 January 1914
DAIRYING. WHY. WASH THE UDDER? There are many points in clean dairying which, if observed closely, would obviate milk contamination, and consequent complaints about in ferior cream and butter. Here are some points of advice: Washing the cow's udder is fre ouently necessary. Should the pad dock in which the cows have been accustomed to lie down during the n;ght be not clean-very few are clean enough--their the udders should be washed before milking. Col~'s for aging in unclean places, especially during drought, render washing their udders imperative. The cow-yard is usually muddy In somine degree during wet weather. As the cow walks to and from the bail she generally makes a beaten path. and when wet this track becomes a continuous manure track. The cow kicks up on to the udder pieces of this contaminated soil, and the udder Sis thus unclean when milking time begins. The milker', hands are often a fruitful source of milk contamination ,ut ing the .)peration of mi'king. The damp, dirt...

IRON FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 9 January 1914
IRON FOR FOWLS,. Iron is present in the fowl's body; part of this Iron is in an organised rorm in the red corpuscles or the blood. The total amount of iron is small, but nevertheless, it is or great importance, and a deficiency re suits in anaemia. Une trequently finds that eggs laid by insumclently red towis have pale yolkas. Inie coloring of the yolK is uue to pigments, and, possibly, to the 'pnospnoiipine termed lecitlln. Iron, in an orginlsed torm, is iouua in the ash ot tne egg. Vegetable foods, es pecially clover and lucerne, are rich in minerals, and tneir use results in richly-colored yolks. Anaemic 1owls may be easily treated by administer ing to each five drops of perchloride of iron in a teaspoon of well-sweeten ed milk. This is a very cheap tonic, and is better in many ways-than the ordinary sulphate of iron (copperas).
FATTENING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 9 January 1914
FATTENING POULTRY. The best and, at the same time, most economical method of fattening all kinds or poultry is to keep them in connuement for a short time before tney are required for table. A good deal or judgment, however, has to be exercised in deciding the length of time this confinement is to last, for it overdone, even in the slightest de gree, the birds rapidly lose flesh and go back in condition. Strange as it may seem, once this begins, no amount or feeding will restore either their weight or condition till after they have regained their liberty again. Fior tnis reason the poultry must be confined for too long a period before they are required.
FOR THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 9 January 1914
FOR THE FARMIER. HOUSING POULTRY. If all poultry houses of the closed in type nab an end or one side of 'them mnocaed out, disease would dim inuisu by one-halt, and the pronts from the birds compelled to roost In them Would, pronauly, be doubled. It is lipossilie to con give anything more i~nsanitary and co( ducivo to uisease than the ordinary type of towlllouse one sees in the country. It is cramp ed, dark and without any ventilation, except the many draughty cracks. It is little wonder that going from the loetid atmosphere into orten an un sheltered yard the birds contract colas, and soon become a prey to dis ease. It were far better to let the hens roost in trees. The sleeping quarters of fowls should be merely f.raught-proof shelters from extremes of weather and, it winter eggs be de sired, they should have dry scratch ing quarters for bad weather. Always have your poultry houses open to the north.
NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 9 January 1914
NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. Why is it that a newly-engaged girl is a thorn in the flesh to all her dis engaged sister women? To begin with-observes a lady correspondent (who is not newly-en gaged)--she is odiously sorry for you because you don't happen to be a betrothed person also. You may have heaps of chances, may know that you are really and truly quite nice, but the most ordinary girl who ever seiz ed upon her first proposal will patron ise you until you feel almost ready to accept anyone. When she isn't irritating you, the newly-engaged girl is rather funny over the ring more especially. This sacred object for a few weeks appar ently occupies the place of sun, moon, stars and all light. If it can be said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasion. And then, in other ways, she is so hopelessly selfish. But perhaps the personal vanity of the engaged girl enrages her femin ine acquaintances more than any of ber numerous failings. To have to stand by and behold an insignificant, per...
GRIT A NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 9 January 1914
GRIT A NECESSITY. A lack of this causes a slow supply of eggs, and if fowls -have not the materials for digesting their food, it is impossible for them to get on, for the proper nutriment must be extract ed from the food for the production of eggs. Oyster shell grit for lime, as well as sea shell or pebbly beach grit, is best for the purpose, as it is very hard and sharp, and a small quantity goes a long way. It should be kept in a trough in the run for the fowls to help themselves to.
DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHICK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 9 January 1914
DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHICK. Present-day poultry science gives these facts in the development ot the chick: Twelve hours after incubation has begun the lineaments of the head and body are discovered.

At the end of 70 hours undistinguished wings, and on the head two bubbles for the brain, one for the bill, and two oth ers for the fore-part and the hinder part of the head.

Seven hours later the lungs and stomach become visible, and the intestines, the loins, and the upper jaw are seen at the end of 142 hours.
