The Biggest Job on Earth. RUNNING THE U.S.A. AS A BUSINESS PROPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 22 January 1914

The Biggest Job on Earth. BITNN1NG THE U.S.A. AS A ■ BUSINESS PROPOSITION. Uuder the abovo attractive title, W. Bayard Halo gives in a recent num ber of the ." W'oriel's Work" as fine a. bird's-eye view of the compass of American enterprise, -and the scope of its Government, as any piain man in the street could ask for. Listen '•to/iiis '•siiuninaiy" of the growth of the United States: "In 1856, when Woodrow Wilson •was born, the United States were thirty-four; "to-day they are forty eight. • • . Then we possessed no outly ing territory. To-day, we have Alaska, Porto JRrico, the Panama Canal Zone, the Philippines, Guam, Hawaii and the Tutuila Island—more than 8000 islands.

" THE CURE CORNER. It is said that nettle rosh cun tit, cure<l .by rubbing the parts well with parsley, and that an onion poultice is Lhe best thing fcr easing neuralgic or rheumatic pains or sore throat. Peopla of dehcato digestion should remember that bread that has been toasted until it becomes brown lias had the starch in it largely converted into dextrine, and hence, so far as tliu brown portion is concerned, one of the processes of digestion is gone through before the bread is taken into the sto mach. It will be found that the thinner the slices of bread, the more easy will digestion be, and when all portions of the bread have been thor oughly toasted—not hurried, but chang ed to a deep brown colour—it will be found still more easily digested. Whoa insect bites occur, the immedi ate application of a little ammonia of ten prevents swelling and inflamma tion.

MARKETING HONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 22 January 1914

MAEEETIIfG HONEY. Beekeepers as a olass are an intel '<igent and well-read unit of the com munity. They know most things about the production of honey, and readily adopt improved methods of rvorking. When it comes to the mar j keting of their product, however, they do not give evidence of the same bright up-to-dateness. Very few of them weigh their honey before sending it to the agents for sale, or put any reserve price on it. They fill the tin nearly up to the top, solder it down, or put jn a screw cap, and send it along, and trust to luck or the honesty of the agent for the returns they may get. This is not business, and it is not a sensible thing to do. No ordinary business man can pursue these meth id-3 :md land anywhere els© than in the lasolvency Court. Every pro lucer ^sh^ald weigh his honey. A se of that will weigh up to 240 lb. :an be pnrehased for 25/.

ENSILAGE—THE FAVORITE FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 29 January 1914

ENSILAGE—THE FAVORITE FODDER (By "Agriculturalist" in "New Zealand Dairyman.5') That the feeding of oows is one ot the most important matters connected with daiiying, no one can gainsay, 1 lit of the many foods in general use, I will at present touch on only one—ensil age. No argument, to my mind, could be adduced against the use oi ensilage, and any oontention to justify the setting aside of fodder of-such para mount" importance would not, hold ground in the face of practical experi ence on the dairy farm. Ensilage contains no substance that would in any way tend to interfere with the orgau isms of the cow, while it oontains .-o little acid that its color is not objec tionable. It can be made when hay cannot, and even this is an important point, espeoially in Southland and Tar anaki where the weather is so variable. It may not supersede hay-making, b i that is probably because of the variety of uses which the colonial farmer pubs hay to. Regarding the preparation ot ensilage, I wis...

ELECTRIC STERILISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 29 January 1914

ELECTRIC STERILISATION. The importance nowadays attacked- • after age-long neglect—to securing milk in a condition as nearly as pos sible free from disease germs of every kind gives speoial interest to a mod® of electric sterilisation invented by a Liverpool doctor. Hitherto the mode pursued to preserve milk in full fresh ness of condition for the considerable length of time necessary for its distri bution and consumption has been to heat the liquid to a temperature whioh kills the microbes, and then to prevent the access of further microbes by se curing it in air-tight bottles, after which the freshness seems to bt> pre served indefinitely. An objection to the method is that the heating of the milk is in effeot a cooking process, which so far changes the nature of tiio constituents as to render them less readily nutritious. Dr. J. M. Beat tie, of Liverpool, however, sterilises the milk by electric current, and thus avoids heating it at all.

CLEAN GUT THE MENTAL COB WE3«. Sam Walter Foss uses rhyme to read farmers a Very useful lesson, and one that should be heeded more than it is : "Yes, clean yer house, and clean yer shed, And clean yer barn in ev'ry part ; But brush the cobwebs from yer head, And sweep the snowbanks from yer heart. Yes, when spring cleanin' comes around Bring forth the duster and the broom, But rake yer foggy notions down, And sweep yer dusty soul of gloom." "Hoard's Dairyman." Poultry Note Don't hang t« the old hens ; get rid of them.

IMPORTANCE OF REGULARITY IN MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 29 January 1914

«IMPORTANCE OF REGULARITY IN MILKING. lu everything regularity is good practice, but in good dairying it is im perative. To produce large and rich yields of milk is the sole function of the dairy cow, and to do this she must be of good dairy type, fed palatable and nutritious feeds and milked clean at regular periods. Ase a rule, the cow is milked at o o'clock of mornings in summer and 7 or S o'clock in mornings in the win ter. The very unequal periods are made for tho cow by this sun to sun milk ing, and as a consequence, the quality of her milk flow and the length of her annual period are reduced. The oow can do her best only when milked at equal and regular periods of about 12 hours each the year round. The full supply of inilk is not in the udder ready to be drawn out before milking time comes, but two thirds ot it is produced in the glands during the operation of milking. The ud der, however, is usually filled, and the row becomes used to this, but if the milking is delayed, an...

BARBED WIRE CUTS. Farm animals are always more 01 less liable to injury from wire outs, und it is important to give quick at tention to ail such injuries. When tho wound is severe it will pay to em ploy a veterinarian to dress the wound. Where the services of a good veterin arian cannot be obtained, farmers will have to handie the case themselves. The ordinary wound will heal if not interfered with. This interference may be- from germs, parasites, med dling with the wound, on the part of the man or the animal itself. Tho first tiling to do is to stop tho lu morr ha go. This can be accomplished by a tight band of clean, white muslin, applied either over or above the wound. A thread may be used un der the artery by using a needle, and tied. Do not use flour, dirt, coo webs, or anything of that sort on the wound.
