FOR LIVE STOCKMEN. SOME MORE DISCUSSION ABOUT THE BEST FARM HORSE. Good illustration of a Suffolk Punch Stallion—Favorite Farm Horse in the Eastern Countics of England—Easily Kept and Lasts a Long Time. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
. FOR LIVE STOOKIENJ. SOME MORE DISCUSSION ABOUT THE BEST FARM' HORSE. Good Illustration of a Suffolk Punch Stallion--Fnvorite Farm Horsro in the Eastern eountles of England-Easily Kept and Lasts a Long Time. Authorities differ. William COrzier, in his excellont work on farming, says that the Clydesdale is par excellence the hdrso for the fanner, while the Suffolk P.unch. makes the best possible 'draft horse for city work, being capable of hauling immense loads. Ho pronounces the Suffolk: too slow, however, for farm work in America. , A writer in The American Agricultnr ist, however, says that the Suffolk Punch is just the spry, easily kept beast.that is .wanted for farm use, and that the En glish Shire horse, or truck horse, is the one exactly adapted for heavy city haul ing. It is certain that the Clydes and. Percherons are as yet minore popular as draft and farm horses than. either' the Shire orSuffolkPundh. The illustration shows an excellent type of an imported Suffolk Punch. f...
POISONED RABBITS AS FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
POISONED RABBITS AS . FOOD. At the Ronisey Shire Council meet ing on Monday, in the discourse of. a discussion on a letter from the Public Health Department, pointing out the danger which, existed "at the present seasoni of poisoned rabbits being sold as food, one of the councillors stated that it was not at all atl uncommon thing for trappers to pick up freshly poisoned rabbits and send them to market with their tral:ped ones. Councillor Somerville suggested that the only' way to rembvo the danger would; be' for (the Government to prohibit trapping durirg the ppisoning season, but this idea did not meet with general favor, as it was pointed out that the discontinuance of trapping would turn a lot of men out of employ meet, The'majority of mebsibers were of opinion that no ill effects would follow the consiumtioni 'f ioisoned rabbits,'as itwans only the' stomach of the rabbit, that: was affected, and Councillors.; Maxted and.

A Notable Yield of Milk. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
A Notable 'Yield of Milk. o On the Birmingham Sewage Farm, EnglnaP,, the herd of 200 dairy cows form a most t- portant source of income, notwithstanding the comparatively low price received for the milk in Birmingham. These are all heavy short horn cows, which are brought in when at the drop of calving at from four to six years old, and the most of them are made ready for the butcher by the time they go dry after ten or twelve months' milking. The milk yielded by every cow is weighed every day and carefaully recorded; in fact, Mr Tough Ia 1817 won thi prize of the Dairy Farmers' Association for the best kept milk record. In Mr Tough's last annual report of the farm to thecorjoration, there is one peassage which is specially interest ing as beanng out what Mr Perk, of Ilech mont, recently said as to the possible milk yield of every first-class cow when properly fed, and as endorsing also all that Mr Raobrt Bruce said at the" A..A.

Barn Made of Baled Straw. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
Barn Made of Baled Straw. ---o--- A traveller in Arkansas found that the principal object of interest in the vicinity of Garden City was the Government experimental forage farm, which is located some two miles from the business portion of the town. It com prises 240 acres-one tract of eighty acres and one of 160 acres. The improvements on the eighty-acre tract consist of a neat and sub stantial one-story frame house of six rooms, a framoe barn, a granary, a tool.house, and a straw barn. On the 160-acre tract a straw barn is being constructed. Both tracts are fenced. On one side of the eighty-acre tract are rows of cottonwoods, while about the other are two or three rows of black locust, all at which are growing finely. The straw barns mentioned are curiosities in their way. The first one was built on the eighty acre tract. Baled straw was used, each bale beingsacurely fastened by wooden pins. Those bales form the sides and ends of the barn, it being covered with a good shingle roof....
A New Fertiliser. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
A New Fertiliser. -0o . In tallow-melting establishmenti-and there are ascore of them m the city of Now York--a. large amount of refuse, so called "'tank water," is thrown away. It contains a valuable element-gelatine. A patent has lately been granted to Michael A. Golseieif, of this city, for a method of utilising the above waste product. It consists in partially evaporating the tank water and thencombinmig it with quicklime in the proportion of one and one-half port of lime, to each part of water remaining in the refuse. after the evaporation. The mixture is then. allowed to expand and dry, when it is reduced to a powdered state, and is useful as a fertilizer, containing, as the patentee claims, from 7 to 12 per cent. of ammonia and from .10 to 0G oer cent. of lime. If the new process should ha found practicable for adoption by the various tallow-melting manufactories, then a waste refuse of to-daywill be made useful, and what is now a nuisance to public health will be abated.-" S...
A Hen Nursing Kittens. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
A Hen Nursing Kittens, A mother cat took her three kittens, an hour or two after their birth, and placed them in charge of a certain hen of her acquaintance, which had already a nursery going two or three yards off, under the manger in a cow shed. It was not stated how the caw ap proved of the new lodgers. '"I saw," says the correopotident, "the cat and her progeny lying on the straw directly after their birth, and noticed the hen on her nest. Returning an hour or two later, the cowman shuwed me kittens under the hen, wondering how they had got there, as nobody else had been in the shed, and he had not touched them. Till the kittens grew too big, the hen never left them. The cat used to go away foraging, and come down every now and then and throw herself down alongside of the hen and nurse her young ones, eometimes lying with her head under and her paws almost around the hen's neck. As the kittens got older, it was droll to see their foster-mother following them about and trying to ...
THE LADIES' COLUMN. The Angelic Husband. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
THE LADIES' COLUMN. The Angelic Husband. There are husbands who are pretty, There are husbands who are witty, There are husbands who in public are as emiling as the morn; There are husbands who are healthy, There are famous ones and wealthy, But the real, angelic husband, well-he'e never yet been born. Some for strength of love are noted, Who are really so devoted, That whene'er their wives are absent they are lonesome and forlorn; And while now and then you'll find one W'ho's a fairly good andhkind one' Yet the real, angelic husband-oh, he's never yet been born. - So the woman who is mated To a man who may be rated As "pretty fair," should cherish him for ever anda day, . For the real angelic creature, Perfect, quite, inevery feature He has never been discovered, and he won't be. so they esay. -Tnomas Barzzr Aonromc.
CHILDREN'S CORNER. A PRIZE OFFERED. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
CHILDREN'S CORNER. A PRIZE OFFERED. -o Dear Mr. Editor,--I read a letter signed " Tottie " in your last piper, and think her brother might have told her that emopty carriages cost more- to drag than full ones, because there is no profit iin dragging about any emp ty thing that I know of except steam rollers. I was wondering myself, after reading your 'paper lastr week, /about the charge .being 18s for bringing,, a ton of bran by train from !Melbourne to -Warragul, and the samen price for sending a tonof potatoes to town, if it would not be better for a poor farmer who had not much money. and-plenty of time arid horsoefed, to take his dray ind-two horsesaund part o?wi a, ton of potatoes, sine cuases of fruit. aid .lfowls and eggs, sell them privately and bring back a ton of bran - and any other things he wanted. He would save S1 16s in the price of freight of potatoes and bran alone, and perlhaps get a bigger price for the potatoes'if he sold them himself. I thiiik it ivoald be a jol...
Useful Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
Useful Hints. A small potato with one end aliced off is excellent to rub steel knives with, as the nuice of the potato exudes in just gnufcient quantity to keep tho bath brick damp and the steel moist during the s:ouring process. Sprinkleplaces infected by ants with borax, and you will soon be rid of them. For an excellent face lotion, take a fresh cocoanut, grate it and place it in a cloth, squeezing out the milk. Wash the face and hands with the liquid, rubbing the skin briskly, the longer the better, then wipe with a soft cloth. One of the best things to cleanse the scalp thoroughly is to dissolve one half teaspoonful of Californian borax in a quart of water and apply it, rubbing it in well. Rinse thoroughly in clear water. A dampened cloth is better than a dry one for dusting furniture. A small toy broom is handier for cleaning up dirt around a stove than a large broom.
Facts About England. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
--o Facts About England. When the population of England was 19,257,000 in 1889, there were 2,539 persons undergoing penal servitude; now, with a population of 27,830,179, the number is only 947. In 188 the entire number of prisoners in ourgaols was 20,833; the entire number at the same date last year was 12,663, though the population had increased by 6.000,000. Pauperism is also declining. In 1870, 1,079,391 persons were in receipt of relief; in 1891, with an addition of more than 7,000,000 inhabitants, there were only 774,905. The upshot of these figures without.pressing them too much--seems surely to be that the "cosmic process" inour own little oorner of the universe is not doing so badly.-Sm EnDWI AB?OLD.

The Late Major Wilson. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and West Gippsland Advertiser — 9 March 1894
The Late Major Wilson. An old schoolfellow of Major Wilson, contributing to the London paper his recollections of that officer, who fell under the assegais of the Miatabele in South Africa, writes thus:--"It is strange to have to remark that a wonderful fatality seemsto have attached itself to his family. All. the members that have yet died nave been taken away by accident or violence. Only a week or two ago his aged mother, unconscious of her gallant son's peril or fate, suc cumbed to paralysis, The husbands of two of his sisters have fallen a prey to the dangers of the deep. Two brothers were drowned on an expedition in South Africa. There remains now the eldest son, Dr George Wilson, the medical officer for MIid-'.Varwickslure, himself a pioneer of sanitary science, and a genial lover of fox and horse and hound. It is pleasant to hope that the name of Wilson will le cut deep in the annals of South Africa.
