CARE OF YOUNG TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 April 1914
CARE OF YOUNG TREES. The care of the young trees at this season of the vear is one of the mcst important of orchard operations. Many trees have been planted out lu:' ing the past season. Whatever care and attention are given to the young trees "will be amply repaid to the grower in after years, owing to the vigor, sturdiness, and other qualitesi thus imparted to them. It ia a mis take to plant a: young orchard, and,. after cutting back the trees, to leg.,e, them practically to their own levices,. other than following the usual meth ods of soil cultivation. The trees, after the early esummer cultivation and cleaning of the soil,. should be mulched with straw, gr.,ss. or leafage of some description. I'hi mulching should not be crowded round the stem, its object being main ly to create moist ana cool soil con ditions, and to encourage a free root system. The mulch material should be occasionally stirred, and no weed or grass growth should be permitted to accumulate amongst it.' Where m...

The Retort Courteous. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 April 1914
The Retort Courteous One day a learned professor w?as accosted by a very dirty little boot black: "Shine your shoes, sir?" The professor was impressedl by the filthiness of the boy's face. "I don't want a shine, my lad." said he, "but if you'll go and wash your. face I'll give you a six?nace." "A'richt, sir," was the lad's reply. as he went over to a neighboring fountain and made his ablutions. Re turning, he held out his hand for the money. "Well, my lad," said the professor, S"yoa have earned your sixpence. Here it fis" "I dinna want it, auld chap." return ed the boy, with a lordly air. "Ye keep it and get yer hair cut."
HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 April 1914
HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. The man. or woman, who wants to be as good-looking as nature will per mit is given a few practical hints in the "Family Doctor": Don't eat your meals quickly; this causes indigestion and a red nose. Don't worry; other people's troubles are quite as bad as yours. Don't forget that a penny spent on fruit does more good than a shilling on bans or sweets. Don't walk five miles one day and stay at home all the next Don't read till midnight: one hour's sleep before twelve is worth five afterwards. Don't shut your bedroom window; fresh air is necessary for health. Don't expect physics and tonics to keep you well it you neglect the laws of health and hygiene.
THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 April 1914
THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. As an Intance of the numbera of bacteria the common fly can carry. the following figulres given by Pro fessor Easton may be cited: - Hie caught 100 flies in a kitchen. put them in a pint of sterilised water and rinsed them about, and then examined the water, and found that he had mr?is ed such a number of bacteria off that each fly averaged over 300,000. ire next caught a similar nulmber In tbm cow barn, and they averaged over 800,000 each, another 100 in the pig -pen, and they averaged over 1,000,000 each. It may be said that when one goes into a factory or house and flnds many flies, one is immediately justi fied in condemning the sanitary sulr rcundings of such premises. One can appreciate the fact that in factories where flies abound it is next to im poslsible to keep them out of the milk, and the seeding of the milk by the bacteria which they carry must be very appreciable. The evil deeds of the fly need emphasising, as too many of us seem to think the fly...
THE FOLLY OF FRETTING. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 April 1914
THE FOLLY OF FRETTING. Don't worry yourself. It won't do any good, and you'll make yourself a nuisance to all your friends. Worry wears more than work, and you begin to look miserable and can't eat more than one plateful at dinner, and you have pains in your head and can't steep., Suppose you try and find the bright side, or try to make or do any thing but stare and talk nihut lee blackness.

LEILA AND HER LOVER By MAX PEMBERTON. P'lblished by Arrangement with Ward, ck and Co. Ltd., Lond. and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VII. Two Women. LeIla awoke at Desdy's touch in a spacious 'bedroom with wide embat tled windows looking out upon the Firth of Forth. "Lally," he cried, "why do you not get up--thile clock had struck a lot of times. Aren't you going to get up to-day, Lally?" She stirred from a heavy sleep and sat up to look about her. The win dows were curtained, and out faint rays of the undimmed sunshine fell upon the gloomy tapestries of the high walls or the ancient gloomy tap estries of the high vwalls or the an cient hangings of the four-poster bed in which they had slept. Desdy was quite wide-awake and impatient of the night. She listened, and heard no other sound but that of the waves beating upon the distant shore. "Oh. Desdy," she exclaimed, "how you frightened me!" And then, "Have you been awake long? Did any one call us?" He said that he had Sonly just ...
CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 April 1914
CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. The value of the cabbage as a feed for dairy cows is fairly generally known. It is a succulent feed, is highly relished by cows, is an ex cellent milk producer, and is rich in protein. But whilst its value is ran Used, many dairy farmers have a rooted obectfon to it on accountl of its liability to impart an undesiralble flavor to milk and butter. This ques tion is dealt with by a writer in a recent Issue of "Hoard's Dairyman." After observing that the only objec tion to feeding cabbage to milch cows Is the flavor imparted to the milk. he proceeds to point out that, when fed under certain conditions., this objectionable feature can be avoided. One of the first precautions to observe is to keep the cabbage away from the shed at milking time. Milk absorbs odors very quickly indeed, and if the cabbage odors are near the milk it will be tainted. An other precaution .to observe is not to feed the cows just b~nfore milking: any high-flavored feed, in fact-tur nips f...
MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 April 1914
MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. The experience already gained in places where associations have been crganlsed shows that with the weed ing out of the unprofitable cows comes an interest In better cows and in the greater care of the cows. There is a tendency to make greater discrimination in price between good and poor animals. The introduction of better cows per medium of the testing procer; creates a desire for more of them. Thus a larger number of cows n ith high yielding capacity reduces the cost of collecting milk and cre.arn mi a given territory. The increased interest In lairhyjig stimulates an interest in pure-bred stock. Instances are given ahiebr,: tltr ing the first year's existen. of,[ a dairy-testing association only one n-.,n owned a pure-bred dairy bull; twentv two such bulls were found a'monmm tihe herds the following year. WVhiie no pure-bred cows at all we"e owned the first year, twenty-one were bought during the second year. This ii ter'st steadily increased, and duri...
DAIRYING. COWS AND FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 April 1914
DAIYINGO. COWS AND FERTILITY. On all pastures where cows and young stock have been grazed rfor many years without special means being taken to restore the lo)s. of phosphates; on all pastures abound ing In coarse grass and weeds on damp, rushy grounda, and on clay land pastures, an application of 5 cwt. per acra will be found to p.o" duco satisfactory result during the first and subsequent seasons. Th, remarkable appearance of clover which follows closely upon such anl application is only to be accounted for by the stimulus which phospha;le and calcIlc manures glve, to this ciass of plants.

SELECTING THE MILK COW. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 1 April 1914
SELECTING THE MILK COW. Nearly every good milk cow pos sesses certain points of conformation which indicate her milking qualities. The first important point is that she shall show a lean or bony form, with a sharp prominent backbone, ribs wide apart, sharp withers and incurv ing thighs. This indicates "dairy temperament," or, in other words, that she will turn her feed into milk instead of beef. Next she will have a long, deep bar rel, well sprnng ribs, broad muzzle, and a strong Jaw, these points Indica' ing capacity for consuming larger amounts of feed. Third, she will show a hardy con stitution, which is indicated by a large heart girth, a deep chest, large open nostrils, and a large wind pipe and lung capacity. Fourth, a good dairy cow should have an udder of good size running well forward and hung up well be hind. - The region of the pelvis or the hips is wide, as is also the space he tween the thighs as viewed from be bind, giving ample room for a large udder. A large udder Is...
