UTILITY POULTRY TYPE AND FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914
UTILITY POULTRY TYPE AND FEEDING. For poultry farming the utility type of breeding fowl should be selected. The type of fowl can be had in the popular breeds, Plymouth Hocks, Wyandottes, and Buff Orpingtons, or, if preferred, in a medium-size fan cier's breed. It is possible to buy Plymouth Rocks or Wyandottes that | are not satisfactory for poultry farm ing on account of their great size, heavy bone, length of leg, or narrow ness of body. For this reason it is of primary importance that the farmer has a definite conception of the proper type of fowl to select for his flock. The breed of. poultry from which utility type-breeding fowls are selected is of secondary importance. Utility type fowls should conform to the following standard:— Mature Weight.—Oock, 71b to S%lb; hen. 5}&lb..to 71b. Shape of Body.—Broad, blocky, and of medium length. Breast carried well forward, full and broad, of medium-depth. Breast bone long, straight, not deep or pointed at the front. j Legs set we...
FAILURE TO LAY IMPORTANCE OF SMALL THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914
FAILURE TO LAY IMPORTANCE] OF SMALL. THINGS. Hens are accustomed to take a rest from laying at the time of moult ing-, and (says Farm, Field and Fireside," England), this they must be allowed to enjoy; but what poultry-keepers most object to is their hesitancy about resuming 'work. It is understood, of course, that a little time after the moult has been completed must be allowed for the fowls to recuperate, for the exchange of feathers is a severe strain on the sys tem; but, apart entirely from the effects of moulting, there are many other reasons for hens not laying at this and all other seasons. The question, how many eggs may a hen he expected to lay during the year is one of considerable interest to all who. keep utility poultry, and it is one that certainly cannot be settled by ' the' conflicting evidence available; but it is a recognised truth that the ma pority of hens lay fewer eggs, than they might be induced to lay if better methods of management prevailed. Hens which have...
HENS VERSUS PULLETS VIEWS OF ENGLISH WRITER [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914
hens : ; versus -ptflilets • , TrrrawisOTP ENGIiSH WRITER The hobby "of poultry keeping- offers a special pleasure to those who take it up and becomer interested in its vari ous phases By attending a poultry show, the casual visitor is impressed by the handsome color or markings, and he recalls that some of those fowls possess both exhibition and utility qualities. — He interests himself in a breed, and soon hears or proves by advertisements that the average - poultry-keeper has either some pullets or hens to dispose of. This (says a writer in an English journal) leads to the inquiry which are the most profitable and suitable to keep—pullets or hens? The term pullet is to some people very misleading, but it should really mean a female bird (fowl) hatched in the current year, as a bird over twelve months is a hen. Now as to the difference In value financially. The prices, of course, vary in different districts, but if the pro spective purchaser is aiming at egg pro duction (winter pr...

THE WEEKLY TIMES SATURDAY, JANUARY 10, 1914. TRADE NAVIES FOR WINES [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914
SATURDAY, JANUARY 10, 1914. TRADE NAVIES FOR WIBIES • Australian wine-growers have a direct interest in the proposal put forward by the International Confer ence at Washington in regard to the trade names of wines. According to the report submitted to the Viticul tural Society, of Victoria, and pub lished last week, it was resolved that such recognised terms as "Cognac," "Chablis," ."Hock,". "Champagne," "Claret," "Port" and others should "no longer be applicable to similar products originating outside of the localities proper whence such designa tions had been originally derived." The proposal is not new. A few years ago it caused some discussion in Lon don, and doubtless at different periods those with large interests in "the local ities proper" have done a good deal to keep it alive. It would appear, how ever, that the movement is gaining in strength, and if our viticulturists have gauged the position accurately, the wine industry in Australia is on the eve of considerable expans...
More People Needed [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914
More People Needed Canada is an illustration of the truth that immigration, so conducted as not to mean competition with the native worker, brings prosperity in an added ratio. As: one swallow does not make a summer, so what may only prove to he a temporary and accidental fluc tuation must not be regarded as a con firmed 'position; but it is to be re gretted that the last returns show a serious falling off in the number of people coming here to settle on the land. So far as it goes, it does not look well for the management of the; immigration scheme, and care must be taken to increase the average of settle Jaaent in future. The State Govern must recognise the urgency of m&Kg into the matter thoroughly and fiigGi|ig out where the flaw is. Mr. ' Watf, the Premier, seems disposed to ..faftefthe situation too easily. He thinks i the Government of Victoria is Riding as much for new settlers as is advisable. This is not the right view point. A falling off in immigration, though, o...
Bids for Mr Mead [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914
Bids for Mr Mead Mr Elwood Mead, Chairman of the Water Commission, is in a difficulty. Mr Watt, the Premier—representing the State—-is also in a difficulty; and so, too, is the University of California. It comes about in this way: California offered Mtf^^aS^sTjH^fessorship with a libe^g^^^^ia.jl^^sion to fol low. / ^Fhls was so'ift^rtlttte ago; and Mr *">ei?m. in Vi&taitia would soon rawest UZf&hf, .AfhWjVan offer temptap^iijij and" h& an in tention\fo £&lt;3^4^ it. T&pMr Watt's Governm^qx Jirge*d!^-H|i^"®^gtay. It is not a qubsja^n y with Mr Mead. He ^^"S^'American; the members of his family are Americans, and they desire to return to their own country. That is natural; it would seem to settle the matter! but that is not so. As soon as Mr Mead wavered over the professorship, the California University insisted that he should honor his tentative promise of acceptance. What is a tentative promise? One understands a con tract as a legally bind...
To Prevent Diphtheria [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914
To Prevent Diphtheria Experts were of opinion that when Melbourne should became sewered diphtheria would cease to spread; but as a surprising fact its spread has in creased with the extension of the sew erage. This does not by any means^ imply cause and effect; but it is a^mat ter that calls for serious consideration. The explanation of the officers of the Board of Health is that there has not been an actual increase in the num ber of cases of-the disease, but that many, cases are now recorded which, were formerly overlooked. "W"hile this can be understood and goes some way in affording reassurance, it is still true that the absolute number of cases last year was 2994. Whether that is an in crease or not, the record is too high. The whole system' of inspection and 1 treatment needs speedy revision. Four principal things are required — more power to the Central Board, less power to the municipal boards, which are only ex officio health boards, and no more; an improved Health Act, and...

SCALY LEGS METHOD OF TREATMENT [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914
SCAIiY LEGS METHOD 'OF TREATMENT The first indication of scaly legs is roughness of the shank caused by slight lifting- scales that cover them. If the affected bird is caught and ex amined (says an exchange), a sort of greyish deposit or crust will be found underneath the scales, which at first is in small quantity, but in time accu mulates until the scales become much enlarged, and the legs are very rough. Often the odor from the bird, if confiend in a small coop, is dis agreeable and in some eases the legs will be found in a sore condi tion owing to the bird pecking at its legs and foot. The complaint is due to a small mite which burrows under the scales, and the longer it is allowed to remain there the more of the greyish . deposit will be found. ' The mites retreat in wards towards the moisture of the shank as the outer crusts become hard and dry. Though not often the di rect cause of death amongst a tloek, they set up great irritation, causing great annoyance, and often cause t...

LAYING TROUBLES EGGS IN THE OVIDUCT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914
LAYING TROUBLES EGGS IN THE OVIDUCT. After a hen has been frightened some times a shell-less egg breaks in tlie egg passage. When this is the case ?he fowl may be standing very erect, with her tail down and head up. The fea thers are usually wet behind, while the other part of her plumage looks very rough. If not attended to the birds often die when this occurs from the in flammation set up by the skins of the broken egg. They are usually found dead on The nest, and the cause of death is fre quently put down to egg binding, when | it is really the skin of the soft eg§- left in the egg passage. This irritates the ; fowl, and causes her to strain, as she ; cannot pass it this caa^uses a rupture of the egg organs, and often of the body-, ! too. It frequently is the cause of the hen being so large and down behind. When any of these symptoms appear the hens should be caught and examin ed. The skin of the egg can usually be found just inside the egg passage; occasionally it is already pro...
Lounge Jacket [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914
Lounge Jacket An easily-fashioned dainty lounge jacket can be ■ evolvod from a short length of accordeon pleated chiffon; 3 yards of wide ribbon, and 3 yards of shadow lace. Let the shadow lace' form a short-waisted coatee with el bow sleeves. Make a sash of the ribbon and a basque - of the pleated chiffon. A successful rest robe owes its In spiration to an Egyptian robe. It has a straight panel back and front, reaching: from neck to hem, and fast ened under the arms. - Something fanciful in design has been created for the girl who prefers pyjamas instead of a frilly robe for her sleeping garment. In appear ance the new rVyjama is not unlike the baggy suit worn by Chinese women.
