VALUE OF RIPE APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 8 May 1914
VAI.UK OF RirE APPLES. The old Ulea that apples were the favourite fruit of the Rods is a plau sible theory. The frcfthnrns of youth was ever possessed by those who made apples their principal diet. Cer tain it is that there is no food so valuable. Apples nourish the brain and spinal cord. .They contain phos phorus, albumen, sugar, gum, chloro phyll, malic acid, gallic acid, vege table fibre and water. They euro gout and rheumatic disorder, and ex ercise a beneficent influence on the liver and stomach. Ripe'apples and broad as a diet will do more to rn store health than drugs .-"Family Doctor."

THE FARM AND DAIRY. WHEY OR SKIM MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 8 May 1914
THE FARM AND DAIRY. WHKY on SKIM MILK. The relative value of whey and skim milk for the purpose of rearing calves or making pork is nti ever green topic for dispute in dairying circles. Generally the varying deci- . I sioris are arbitrary, and the result I of casual experience, and therefore a test made at the Ontario Experiment I tal Station is very interesting, j Five groups of pigs were taken for | : the purpose of demonstration. ! . To group 1 was fed about 2£tt>. of skim milk to every pound of barley and frozen wheat, to which pollard was added. That was called meal, ! and every group got the same meal. | Group 2 was fed an equal quantity in pounds of butter milk and meal. Group 3 was fed common cheese fac tory whey in plucc of skim, milk, and the same ration of mcnl. Group 4 . was fed whey that had been run ' through the separator to take out ; the butter-fat (three-tenths of 1 per cent per 3001b), and meal as the rest. -Group 5 was fed the same quantity of meal and water f...

RHUBARB. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 8 May 1914
RHUBARB. L Rhubarb comes in very opportune ly between the stored- winter fruits and the fresh fruits of summer. ' But, just because it is so useful, it is apt to be abused ;. one gets too much of it in some form or another, generally tarts or pudding for dinner ahd stew for other meals, it appears on the table every day; while, from a mistaken idea of its exceeding wholeaomeness, it is almost forced on children and others who do not care for it, and to whom it is un wholcsomo. Aa a matter of fact, rhubarb is not good for everybody on account of the acid it contains, which is generally oxalic, very differ ent to tho mild malic acid of the ap ple or gooseberry. . It should never be touched by gouty persons, and those who are delicate in anj way should partake of. it in moderation. On the other hand, however, strong and healthy people may eat as much of it as they care for, and it will be very benefi cial to them, acting as a blood puri fier in the same way ns other vege tables and fre...

LIMB AND CLOVEIl. j In this abundance of talk on tho use of lime on land, it is well for us to establish certain well known prin ciples in our mind to start with. I 1. That wc should not use burned ! or quick lime, unless thoroughly air j ' slacked, because of its caustic pro- j perty whereby it cats up the humus | ' or vegetable matter in the soil, thus j robbing it of its best nitrogen holder. i 2. That our main object should be ' to use lime in order that we may in crease the capacity of our land to grow clover br alfalfa. On these two points wc must, de pend for a proper rotation, for; through them wc increase the nitro-1 gen in tfie soil. Onrc get our land to ; producing abundant and sure crops of clover or lucerne,- then we have j the key, with proper management, to ] further enrichment of the land. Hence ! wc should use ground limestone first I I of all for the purpose of growing j clover or lucerne. If we kenp these principles and objects in . mind wc will be sure not to go ...
