DAIRYING. THE COWYARD. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914

DAIRYING. THE COWYARD. Under usual conditions, the cow yard is a seriouB handicap to good dairy products. It should be set up on t well-drained piece of land with the slope away trom the milking shed and dairy. The use of gravel is to be recommended, and some have employed concrete to mako sure that the cows are kept away from mud and tilth. The yard should be kept clean, and the manure removed promptly and conserved at some con siderable distance from the milking shed or dairy premises. This pre caution will also greatly help In keep ing down the number of flies. The practice of milking in unsuitable sur roundings is possibly doing more to retard progress in dairying than any other existing custom.

Avoiding Eye-Strain. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914

Avoiding Eye-Strain. Eye-strain is said to be largely a detect of civilisation. To counteract it, children sliould be encouraged to use tlieir eyes at long range. A teachor who has a surprisingly small amount of eye-strain among her pupils attri butes it to her practice o£ 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 caD see the farthest. This rests and trains the eyes and teaches observa tion. A woman who does fine sewing for her living found her eyes strained and weak. She was advised to drop her sewing every half-hour and look for v. 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 rnd look at some object on the hori zon. The long-distance training will not, however, relieve eye-strain that comes from astigmatism, reckless dis regard of the eyes, or...

Too Much for the Ghost. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 24 January 1914

Too Much for the Ghost. Archbishop Thomson once "laid" a ghost in a very simple way. Staying at a country house with traditions of a family ghost, he was put up for tha night in the "haunted chamber." In the morning his hosts were anx ious to know if he had seen anything. "Oh, yes," he replied; "about twelvo o'clock I heard a knock at the door. I said, 'Come in, come in.'" "And did he come?" "Yes; an old sallow-looking man." "Yes, that is our ghost! What did you do?" "I got out of bed and asked If he belonged to the house. He nodded as sent. I asked him if he were a par ishioner. He nodded again. Then I said, -'I am anxious.to build some new schools; will you give me a subscrip tion?' He disappeared and I saw Ulm no more!" We alway* preach what we exp«et the other felloir to ptMtlie.
