SMOKING WHILE MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
SMOKING WHILE MILKING. Do not allow dogs or loafers to be round at milking time. If any acci dent occurs by whidh a pall-full or partly full of milk becomes dirty, do not try to remedy this by straining, but reject all this milk, and rinse the pall. We remember one day, when on a visit, seeing a milking hand smoking a pipe. Suddenly, he spoke to the cow, and the pipe fell from tile man's mouth into the bucket. He made one grab into the-milk-bucket, Dut the wet pipo into his pocket, andl went on milking! Then, what about the ash from a pipe or cigarette fall ing about everywhere? Sack the manf or boy who smokes while milking.
HOW NAMES OF PLACES CAME TO BE BESTOWED. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
HOW NAMES OF PLACES CAME TO BE BESTOWED. " Truth" writes:- Gippsland was supposed to be the home of the bunyip. The " booming" of bitterns from thle Moe Swamp gave rise to the supposition that the noise was made by some large amphibious animal. The aboriginals kidded the whites that it was so, and they said the animal's name was Buneep. For years, a late as 863, the town of 13unyip in Gippsland was known as Buneep-Buneep, situated on the Buneep River. ft really took its name from a cattle station on the Buneep Creek,'ten miles away from the great Moe S\wamp. The station was owned by \V. \V. \Valler, and' he ran 450 head of cattle on it, and he named his station Buneep owing to the aboriginal tradition. Since then the cuil and ebb and flow of our flexible Anglo-Saxon tongue has transformed B3uneep into Bunyip. SObserve, too, in the first syllable of of this word an illustration of the principle known to philologists as Onomatopoeia-i.e., an attempt to make the pronunciation conform t...
WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? ?-~""-a* an export, do we import usr l Ufr tly? WVo havo conditions here favorable to the grofwIng of frst class fruit. We calln produce citrus fruit here equal to what we receive from Italy, if pro per cultural methods are practised. The soil is here, and the climatic condition. The Italian fruit has a thin skin, the correct flavor, and its keeping quality is world-renowned. Yet some of our locally-produced oran ges will compare favorably with theirs, but to oust the imported ar ticles gro\iers should endeavor to produce more of this class. The thin skinned varieties are just as easily grown as the inferlor types, and, as far as flavor is concerned, nlany of our up-to-date growers produce fruit every bit as good as that imported better inu fact, but the dlrawback is that we do not get enough, nor does it always combine with the commer elally-essential thin skin.
PIGS FOR BACON. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
PIGS FOR BACON. Certanlu modifilcations in the meth ods of killing and preparing pigs for bacon have been necessary in recent years to meet the demands of the consumer and curer. Among these has been the movement in favor of less fat and more lean, what is pre ferred now being a tasty, mild-flavor ed, somewhat lean bacon, which is finely streaked with fat and of firm texture. It is occasionally found in dealing vwith carcases for either pork or ba con that there exists an abnormal condition in the texture of fibre of the flesh. It is soft, yields to pres sure, is flabby, and possesses an un natural greasiness. This class of flesh invariably cures badly, and pro duces inferior bacon. Observation lhas taught that it is mainly due to the various classes of food being used in improper proportions. Further experience has shown that this influence is more pronounced dur ing winter. Low temperatures exert a change upon the nature of the body fat. Animals exposed to cold are prone to produc...
FOR THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
FOR THE FAR1ER. HOUSING POULTRY. If all poultry houses of theo closed in type had an end or one side of them knocked out, disease would dim inish by one-half, and the proflts from the birds compelled to roost in them would, probably, be doubled. It is impossible to conceive anything more insanitary and conducive to disease than the ordinary type of fowlhouso one sees in the country. It is cramp-D ed, dark and without any ventilation, except the many draughty cracks. It is little wonder that going from the foetid atmosphere into often an un sheltered. yard the birds contract colds, and soon become a prey to dis case. It were far better to let the hlens roost in trees. The sleeoping quarters of fowls should be merely tdraught-proof shelters from extremes of weather and, it winter eggs be de sired, tlhey should have dry scratch ing quarters for bad weather. Always Ihlave your poultry houses open to the north.

FATTENING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
FATTENING POULTRY. The best and, at the same tine, most economical mnethod of fattening all kinds of poultry Is to kIeep them in confinlement for a short time before they are required for table. A good deal of judgment, however, has to be exercised in deciding the length of time tills confinement is to last, for if overdone, even in the slightest de gree, the birds rapidly lose flesh and go back In condition. Strange as it fmay soom, once thlis begins, no amount of-feeding will restore either tlheir weight or condition till after they have regained their liberty again. For tils reason thle poultry nmust be .faflined for too long a perlod before fL.'fey are requirCd-,:.u,.€?L .

GRIT A NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
GRIT A NECESSITY. A lack of thils causes a slow supply of eggs, and if fowls have not the materials for digesting their food, it is Inposslblo for them to get on, for the proper nutriment must be extract edl from the food for the production of eggs. Oyster shell grit for lime, as well as sea shell or pebbly bench grit, is best for the purpose, as it is very hard and sharp, and a small quantIty goes a long way. It should be kept in a trough in the run for the fowls to help themselves to.

1 SCRAPS. In a previous issue vwe alluded to Charles Hanscn, a boy who cat his foot while bathing in the swimming hole. Since then the snags have been removed. Mr J. W\V. Cousins, on'e of tFe pa tentees of the famous rabbi: de stroyer, " Lazemont," paid a vi:;it to Dandenong on Tuesday and de scribed the working of this new rab bit destroyer, which is for burrow work only, and judging by tht cre dentials Lazemont has obtained, it should prove a great boon to those whose land is infested with rabbits. It is worked, as follows:-A tin, similar to a 21b fruit tin, is placed in the mouth of each main opening of the warren. The tin is thien three parts filled with water and uone is placed near each opening. A charge of Lazemont is put into each tin; then just as the tin is placed into the vwarren, a piece of rock carbide, about the size of a hen egg, is dropped into the mixture and placed quickly into the hole and covered up, taking care the dirt does not get into the tin.

SEASIDE CAMPS. Parental Respon i7f-'Y.--. .. "tavy share of respot ib'ity for u,;r-nditions existing the worsti class of seaside camps ilaid at the door of careless parents by everyone who discus'es toe evils and possible remedies. People who have a first hand knowledge of the state of af fairs at Mordialloc, Aspendale, Chel sea, and Carrum, blame mothers for permitting daughters with more physical attractions than moral dis cretion to go away for the week or the day without anyone to look after them. " The remedy is in the hands of the parents, who have no right to allow their daughters to go away without guardians," said one man, who has been living in Chelsea with his family for eight years. "Chelsea bathing and seaside life of every de scription is splendid, and there is an enormious amount of pleasure to be got out of it. That this evil that has crept in here, and in other places before it reached Chelsea, is solely due to mothers letting their girls go away without supervision...

NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 8 January 1914
NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. Why Is it that a newly-engaged girl is a thorn ill the flesh to all her dis engaged sister women? To begin wlth-observes a lady correspondent (who is not newly-en Sgaged)-she is odiously sorry for you because you don't happen to be a betrothed person also. You may have healps of chances, may know that you are really and truly quite nice, but the most ordinary girl who oever seiz ed upon her first proposal will patron ise you ulntll you feel almost ready to accept anyone. When she isn't irritating you, the newly-engaged girl is rather funny over the ring more especially. This sacred object for a fevw weeks appar ently occupies tile place of sun, moon, stars andl all light. If it can be said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasionl. And then, in other ways, she is so hopelessly selfish. But perihaps the personal vanity of the engnaged girl enrages her femin ilne acquaintances more than any of her numerous failings. To haveo to stand by and behold an Insign...
