Dog Feeds Hens. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 January 1914

Dog Feeds Hens. An Indiana farmer named Sitka claims that his dog takes tho prize for intelligence, and points to an incident showing this and an un usual friendship between the dog and his prize poultry. Sitka's grain is kept in a small shed be hind the house, and Sitka found that when lie left the door of this • shed open tho chickens would enter and feed themselves. This led him to placo a spring on the door so that it uould close of its own ac cord when open, and would only need a push to open it. Much to i his surpriso Sitka found that hi* grain disappeared at nil alarming rate despito all his precautions, and this led him to investigate. Seated at his window and watch ing the door of the shed, his atten tion was drawn to tho dog, which sneaked lip to the door, followed by several hens. Then the mystery was explained when the dog pushed against the door with its nose and held it open while the hens entered, gorged themselves, and retired to roost.

Why Cocoa is the Vegetable Egg. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 January 1914

Why Cocoa is the Vege table Egg. A Cocoa can be compared to a vegetable egg, because, like the egg, it contains everything necessary for the building of tha animal body. When ivn analyso cocoa we find it a perfect natural food. Analysis teaches us that it contains a fair proportiim of nitrogenous matter iti the shape of gluten, a very large proportion of fat, a consider able amount of starch, so much mineral matter, and, finally, a sti mulant of its own called theo bromine. Cocoa is an excellent substitute for tea or coffee, especially to those who are over-stimulated by these beverages. Pure cocoa is easily digested. But bo sure that you get it pure. Avoid all such prepara tions of cocoa in which other substances have been mixed. ll" you lind that one brand of cocoa does not agree with yo'i, try another ; until you lind the one which is best Jit ted for your constitution. Cocoa was discovered by the Spaniards when they first landed in .Mexico, being there used by the na tives in la...

Good for Cut Flowers. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 23 January 1914

Good for Cut Flowers. .T To prolong the life of cut flowers two professors of tho School of Agriculture at JRennes, France, have recently compared the effect of var [ ious solutions with that of ' plain water. Over 100 different kinds of flowers were tried. It was found that most of them would live and stay fresh much longer if some sugar was put Into the water in which they were kept. Sugar, however, was 110 help to tulips, daisies, or chrysanthemums, and it was n positive) injury to lilies and sweet peas. It accelerat ed the opening of the buds, especial- 1 !y of roses and orchids. Small quantities of chloral, ether, glycerine, alcohol, lime water, and even ammonia salts, served to lengthen the lives of various kinds of flowers. Tho water thus "modi iied" should come as near as pos I slide to tho blossoms. In other I words, the stems should be ini- I mersed as deeply as possible. Some of the flowers kept in sugar | and water lived fo'ii- times as long.l as woujil ordinarily bo the...
