Charcoal in Feeding Fowls. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 6 May 1892
Charcoal in Feeding Fowls. A farmer who has raised turkeys many years and who takes pleasure in making ex. periments, writes that charcoal, turkey-fat and diamonds are alike in some respects. It is a fact that more fat may be got out of Sharcoal than one would suspect, without a Sknowledge of chemistry. Here is an account Sof one experiment: I"Four turkeys were confined in a pen and I fed on meal, boiled potatoes and oats. Four 1 others of the same brood were at the same time confined in another pen, and fed daily on the same article, but with one pint of very finely pulverised charcoal mixed with their food-mixed meal and boiled potatoes. They had also a plentiful supply of broken charcoal in their pen. The eight were Silled on the same day, and there was a dif. ference of one and a half pounds each in favor of the fowls which had been supplied cith charcoal, they being much the fatter, and the meat being superior in point of ten. dernees and flavor."

Lest week at a meeting of the board the whole question was discus sed when it was stated that the work pro. posed would require £100 toward which they hal £250, the Governmentcontribution.

Burney, Wheelan and the President MrT.J. Rush, who declared their belief that without going to the Endowment Fund it was impos sible to do the work. Messrs.

Rural Dairy Suggestions. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 6 May 1892
Rural Dairy Suggestions. lx is rarely the case that winter cheese. making can he made to pay, says a writer. Farmers who have large winter dairies are seldom in close proximity enough to fcrnish sufficient milk for the purpose, and even then they might consider it more profitable to make butter. Cheese can he made in winter, however, as comfortably as in spring ,r autumn, but due preparation must be anode for it. Both make and curing rooms .hould be as warm as the apartments of a Iwelling house. The warmer they are made, the hss fuel will be required to keep op necessary heast. In winter, milk should os matured by standing in a warm tempera. sure for several hours before rennet is incor. porated with it. It is useless to think of maturing card made from perfectly sweet winter milk, unless )ou took more than one day for it. IT is evidently more important to curry toak in winter than at any other time. And hie is especially the ease with cows, horses .nd other stock confined in barns ...

Taking Care of Swarms. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 6 May 1892
Takliul Care of Swarms. While the plan of dividing seems to pre. rail with beekeepers, we think we are sale in saying that swarming is the rule. It seems that bees knowbetterhowto divid themselves than we know how to divide them. Especi ally is this the case with first swarms, hence an article on how to take care of swarms might not be considered a thing of no use. In the first place it is always in place to make arrangements for swarms, from the fact that it matters not how much pains we take to prevent it we shall occasionally have a swarm, and to make previous provisions for the same is a necessity. A swarming box is made of light stuff some 101018 inches, placed on a pole eight or ten feet long. This box should be perforated with holes one and a half inches apart each . ay, and the holes may be one inch in diameter. If we chance to have a swarm, and do not like to cut and mutilate our fruit trees, this box prevents all this, besides it is a great convenience in handling swarms. ...

Science. The New Industrial Era. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 6 May 1892
Science. --+44+ The lNew oecastriaI Idra.3 Eighteen yeirs ago, a commission was ap pointed in Great Britain;'to investigate the question of the probable durat;on of the coal supply of the kingdom. Some of the results of this oflicial irqoiry, given in a paper read before the 8.atistical Society, suggest some startling probabilities. At the average rate of increase and'consumption which has been going on for the.past twenty years it is computed that the New. castle coal district will be exhausted in 94 years, the South Wales district in 79 years, and the remainder in even less time. Nothing in the future appears more pro. bable than that within the liletime of per sons now living the industrial supremacy of Great Britain will pass away with the ex. haustion of her coal fields. Switzerland, Italy and the Scandinavian peninsular are destined to become the great manufacturing distriete of Europe. This extraordinary in. duetrial revolution will be brought about by the transmission and di...
