To Disinfect a Cowshed. V.- - x_ Jl is always good practlco where a contagious disease, of any. kind bus gained access to tho herd. to- dis infect the entlio stable. In fact, this is often imperative if it ft de sired to stamp out tho disease. Disinfection is absolutely nccexsury whero tuberculosis has- gained ac cess to the herd. bulletin 12tt of the Pennsylv.ania Stale College of Agriculture recently published gives a plan for disinfecting the stables which is valuable for this as well as for some other diseases: 1. Remove nil manure, " litter, loose dirt, loose; rotten boards and scrape the floor clean. 2. Sweep the ceilings and walls free from cobwebs, dust and dirt. .I.

BRANDING OF HIDES. OUR PRESENT WASTEFUL METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 April 1914

BRANDING OF HIDES. OUIt 'PRESENT WASTEFUL METHODS. The great waste of money entailed by our present method of branding cattle is a subjcct which periodically erops up in the newspapers and lea thqr trade journals. It never ap pears, however, to get past this stage, for the same injurious method of applying hot irons to the best part of an animal's hide still con tinues. In this connection it is point ed out 1>j the English Farmers' Fed eration that the difference in price of leather, were it not branded, Is probably 3d. to 4d; per lb. Then, again, raw hides, if not branded, would fetch Id. per lb. more, and, as these hides weigh from 60lb. to 80tb. the difference in value is very ap preciable. The Federation advocates either an alteration of the method of branding, or that the animals he branded with smaller brands, on the checks, ears, or flank-not on tho rump or the back, as Is at present nearly always done. They ? consider that tills would be equally distin guishable, and woul...

THE GARDEN. INFLUENCE OF CROSSING ON YIELD OF TOMATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 April 1914

THE GARDEN. INFLUENCE OF CROSSING ON YIELD OF TOMATOES. In regard to the experiments'with tomatoes at the New York Agricul tural Experimental station, Mr. Wel lington has found that a crop of hy brid plants of the first generation give a larger yield than cither of the parental forms, or of the succeeding generations after the "break." The results suggest and seem to warrant the use of first generation seed only if the main object be the production of a heavy crop. Of course,"* it en tails all the extra c\re and trouble that artificial fertilisation means ; but Tomato fruits, as a rule, pro duce a large number of seeds, which, so far, is some compensation at'Ainst the extra trouble. Tomato seeds re tain their vitality, it is said, for from three to seven years ; therefore it would only be absolutely neces sary for seed-growers to raise every : third year a sufficient quantity to cover the needs of a three-year sale. It would-appear to be a" simple matter for raisers of tomato seeds ...

WHAT WE WASH WITH. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 24 April 1914

WHAT WE WASH WITH. One of tlic few inventions that arc not ascribed to foreign ingenuity Is that common household article, soap. It is said that the ancient Dritons were the first makers of s:>ap, and that the Romans, when they con quered England took the invention back with them to-Italy. Most of what we wash with is made from fat, but abroad there are natu ral soaps. There is the soap-root of Spain, the soap-berry of Chili, and the bark of the Peruvian soap-tree. At a little town in Mexico, soap ac tually takes thc place of copper coin age ! In another part of thc same South American Republic the inhabi tants cat soap, finding much nourish ment therein. The French term for aoap, "navon" by thc way, owes Its origin to the town of Savona, in Franco, where vast quantities of the material were formed? manufactured. 1924. Dip brooms in bo.iling soap-suda for n-few minutes weekly, and they will last much longer than they other wise do. 1924.

Food of the Kestrel. During a perogrination (says u correspondent) in the island of Mull X was attracted by n kestrel liawk Hying" out from a rock. After a somewhat diligent search, there being many rocks, I discovered the eyrie, and in it were three young kestrels at that stago when the brown feathers arc showing' fairly well among the white down. Think ing this was an admirable oppor tunity of seeing what arc the food supplies* of theffo birds, I hid at n. distanco to note what the parents brought to their nestlings. Even with my binoculars, however, I was unable to discover, and the follow ing day I adopted different tactics. Shooting some young rabbits Uagain approached the eyrie, when the pa rent birds were nwny. As in tho habit of these birds of prey, the young ones faced me with open beak and claw's, . but after 1 had dropped bits of warm meat into their open mouths thov naturally, after feeling..and tasting tho tit bits, swallowed .- them, and, like OliverTwist, were ready f...
