THE REJECTED COW. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
THE REJECTED COW. At prosent there is nothing to pre vent the rejected cow from Uncling lta way into an auction yard, or even into a clearance sale, to be again the subject ot disappointment to another farmer until he similarly gets rid ot it. This can go on until through sheer age the cow disappears from the dairy farm, alter being all its lite uu unpi'otltable drag on somebody, Unuer a better system the animal would be fatteued tor beet as soon as Its milk-producing capacity, or rather incapacity, was discovered. Of course this immediate elimination of the unprofitable dairy cow does take place in innumerable instances, but it is obviously necessary that its fate should bo automatically sealed tho moment it is weighed in the balance and found wanting. Cow-testing has r.ow fortunatoly become so general throughout the State that farmers would be well advised to lntroduco the rule that at all sales an authen ticated milking record should be pro duced with each cow olfered fa? sale.

WHEN TESTING MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
WHEN TESTING MILK. The apparatus for testing milk should be kept on a lead-covered table, as the acid used in carrying out the Gerber test haB not any effect upon lead. It any sulphuric acid gets spilled on wood, the wood gets burn ed up. Always keep the stopper in the sulphuric acid bottle, otherwise the acid will absorb the moisture' from the air, and thus become weak ened.

CONVENIENCES IN FARM HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
CONVENIENCES IN FARM HOMES. . One of the strongest objections to country life by those who live in cities is that tile conveniences of the farm home are few, and that the work of the housewife is made a much greater hardship than it 1B in the cities. This is, as a rule, the case. The ordinary farm home has not t' e labor-lighten Ing Improvements of the city home. There is no plumbings in the houso by which the luxury of the bathroom can be had, no running water, no sew age system, heating is done by Btoves instead of furnaces, and the wliolo plan of the house JB to increase the steps of the good housewife rather than to lessen them. Now, this is not as it Ehould be. The farmer and his wife should have as many of the luxurleB of life as may be possible, and it is possible to ar range the hcuse ot the farm so that many of the necessities of the city house may be had. Recently equipped farm homes are usually better equip ped than are those ot several yeais ago. This is by reason that f...
IN FANNY BURNEY'S GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
FANNY BURNEY'S GARDEN. An amusing account of tho horti cultural pursuits-and Ineptitude-ol General d'Arblay, the French emigre who became Fanny Durney's hus band, is givon in an article in the "CornhiH" by Sir Henry Lucy: - 'The young couple began their mar ried life in apartmeuts in a farm house on the summit of Bagden Mill. Thence they moved to a somewhat larger cottage at Bookham. Finally, when "Camilla" proved a financial success, they built themselves a house on the outskirts of Norbury Park, known during their residence as "Camilla Cottage." From the lirst, M. d'Arblay, con scious of inadequacy to bear his fair share in tho wherewithal for meeting the cost of the little household, de veloped a fearsome frenzy for gar dening. Pursuit of the vocation in volved hinj in delightfully ludicrous dilemmas. Writing under date April, 17U\, from the cottage at Bookham, the young wife says: "Think of our horticultural shock lust week wheu Airs. Bailey, our laud lady, entreated him not to ...

DAIRYING. THE COWYARD. Under usual conditions, tbo cow yard Is a serious handicap to good dairy, products.

Too Much for the Ghost. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
Too Much for the Ghost. Archbishop Thoinsou once "laid" n ghost in a very simple way. Suiyiui; at ii country house with traditions ot a family ghost, he was put up for tlK> uight In the "haunted chamber." In the morning his hosts were anx ious to know If he had 6een anything. "Oh, yes," he replied; "about twelve o'clock I heard n knock at the door. I said, 'Come In, come in.'" "And did he come?" "Yes; an old sallow-looking man." "Yes, that 1B our ghost! What did you do?" "I got out of bed and asked if ho belonged to the houso. Ho nodded as sent. I asked him if he were a par ishioner. He nodded again. Then 1 said, -'I am anxious to build some new schools; will you give mo a subscrip tion?' He disappeared and I saw him no more!" We always preach what -we expect the other ftllow to practise.
HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
HEALTH NOTES. The Evll'.of Late.Suppers. . Late or heavy suppers are a com mon cause ot insomnia, especially tnat loriii of it in wnicn people tail into a heavy sleep, omy to awaiie with a start au hour or two later anil lind themselves unable to sleep again until early morning perhaps. Digestion comes aiuio»i to a uead stop during sleep, so tnat suUicient tune saouiu be allowed lor Lne last meal to be dis posed ot beiore the hour lor retiring. This interval should be two hours at least, which mean's that nalt-pasi eight is as a rule late enough tor the evening meal. In any case, the lood I which is taken then ought to be oi a light nature, and not include pork, cold meat, or any other article oi diet which is slow of digestion. (Johee and strong tea are unsuitable at this hour, as they tend to cause sleep lessness. Cocoa, made with water, is a much better beverage lor use wiui tl e evening meal or alter it.

He would not have been In a position to withdraw and make the statement he proposed to make had ,not the jury stopped the case owing to tho admissions of Mr. Ernest Sib stono and Lieutenant. Ingram.

Avoiding Eye-Strain. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 23 January 1914
Avoiding Eye-Sfrain. Eye-strain is said to be largely a delect o£ civilisation. To counteract it, children should bo encouraged to use their eyes at long range. A teacher who has a surprisingly small amount oi eye-strain among lier pupils attri butes it to her practice of making the scholars drop their work at the end of each hour and look out of the win dow. There is a contest as to who can seo the farthest. This rests and trains the eyes and teaches observa tion. A woman who does flue sewing tor her living found her eyes strained and weak. She was advised to drop her sowing every half-hour and look for i minute into space. Relief was quick, and the eye-strain disappeared. Short-sighted .people who hold their book or work close will ease eye strain and lengthen their vision if they' frequently remove their glasses end look at somo object on the hori zon. The long-dlstanco training will not, however, relieve eye-strain that comes from astigmatism, reckless dis regard of the eyes, or...

Only a tew hours each day is sufficient; and a. person limy live in a most healthy district, pass the greater part of e...

More is known of this, per haps, than In regard to the shocks. After a heavy storm or a few days of rain the farmer quickly notices the result Most of these drawbacks can bo provided against. Then there is the treatment in the yardB and pad docks. Strangers in the yards will make a difference to the yield of the moBt nervous of the animals. It does not seem to be made up again In sub sequent milkings. Cows should be treated gently. Keep the Btrangers away from the yards, especially if they are dressed in gay colors.
