HAM AND BACON CURING. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 March 1914
HAM AND' BACON CURING. A pig that; Is to be killed should bo kept without food for 12 or IB hours. Every effort should- be made to' get'.every drop of blood out of the body, otherwise the' carouse will not euro so well. The pig Is then Immersed .11 nearly boiling water. iThe proper tempera ture of the water Is very Important. If either too hot or too cold the hair will-not come off. freely. A good old fashioned plan to try the temperature Is to let a ifew drops of the pig's blooil drop Into the water; If It spreads all over the sunfacc the tomperature is right. Leave tlie pig 'in the water until the hair comes oft freely. Pigs, are not easily lifted out of the water, especially when hat, and it is a good plan to erect a block overhead, so as to facilitate this operation. Tho pig should now be Vigorously scrnped with a blunt instrument; There is nothing better for the purpose than the lid of an old billy. When the lialr Is all removed, the skin should l>o well dried.

HAPHAZARD POULTRY BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 March 1914
HAPHAZARD POULTRY BREEDING. Tlie haphazard method ot breed ing Is Btill in vogue 011 many farms. Tlio eggs solected for '"uchlug are chosen because they are oi good size, shape and color, irrespective of Whether they are laid by the best or worst layers. In the present stale of farming one cannot afford to adopt loose methods. If the farmer gave as much thought to poultry breeding as lie docs to his farm crop lie would invariably lind Ills pullets great pro Til-makers. On many larms the chick ens are reared for llio sake of the pullets; cockerels are a pecondary consideration, although usually equal to the pullets as regards numbers. The farmer 'wants eggs—plenty ot II10111—and when eggs are dearest. He must liatdli so that the pullets lay right through the winter; they can afford to have a rest In summer and , will come agaTn In autumn, a time of higher prices. Now, wo cannot ob tain all of these advantages by hatch ing haphazard and from a flock of mongrols. Tlio farmer nniBt luiv...
ADVANTAGES OF A LIFE PLAN [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 March 1914
ADVANTAGES7 OF A LIFE PLAN It pays to Imvc a life plan. Such a plan'unifies our life; It organises our days; it'binds our hours together in- oue harmonious whale; it gives meaitlng, value and direction to our lives. No -man is apt to arrive or to 1 achieve success unless lie has a fair-, iy distinct notion of where he wishes to go and what he wants to do. There are some meaningless people 'whom you could accurately call hu man derelicts. They drift, and, like everything else that drifts, they drift down-stream. - • - There is a very great difference between the men who wait and see what will happeiv and men who make things happen in such a way that i lliey will contribute to.the lealisation of their life plan. The first kind o! 'man is a failure; a miserable failure. The second kind of man is a Buc icess; a splendid success. The one differentiating thing between an Ig noble and a noble Hfc is the- having a purpose, pursuing an ideal, journey ing towards a goal. The man who regulates...

SMALL ORCHARDS [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 March 1914
SMALL ORCHARDS Fruitgrowing is becoming more and more of n science nowadays, and in tensive cultivation 'Is an indispensable adjunct to scientific treatment. With tile great rambling orchards of old (lays there was little or no attempt made at real fruitgrowing on sound principles, and the consequence was that heavy losses were, in lime, sus tained through the ravages of dis ease and the invasion of insects. No orcliardist who sets himself to meet the requirements of the market-cau afford to submit any but good qual ity stuff, and, unless lie - be c. inil Uonalre^Hir which case- Ue; would be rearing his. orchard for pleasure, .not profit—he canno.l provide the labor and skill necessary for,'the cultiva tion of large areas, wherefore, this is the day of small orchards. :

PENDER'S GROVE ESTATE. CONSTRUCTION OF ROADS. DIVIDED RESPONSIBILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 March 1914
PENDER'S GROVE ESTATE. CONSTRUCTION OF ROADS. DIVIDED RESPONSIBILITY. A deputation representing the North cote Town Council waited on the Minis ter for Lands (Mr. Lawson) on Tuesday, in reference to a long-standing difference of opinion as to the responsibility for the construction of roads in the Pender's Grove Closer Settlement Estate. Some &nbsp; time ago the Closer Settlement Board agreed to pay .£4,000 to the Northcote Council for the construction of roads, drains, and other works. Of this amount £2,900 has been spent, and £1,100 is &nbsp; available. But it has been found that the work will cost more than £4,000, and the body responsible for the balance has to be fixed. According to the Closer Settlement Board, the council agreed to complete the work for £4,000. This the council denies, and asserts that the £4, 000 was intended to cover only part of the work. It is disinclined to make up the difference out of its own funds. The Minister was asked if he could sug...
