Not infrequently on WVcdnesdaays or 'Ihursdays you may see, down at the docks at Tower Wharf or Tooloy street, the disemlibarkation of many hundreds of Russian peasant men and women and Jews and Jowesses out of a dingy Baltic steamer, The Russians are in the slheepslkins? they havo astraklhan caps on their heads or old peak hats.

AGRICULTURAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 18 April 1914
AGRICULTURAL ITEMS, 'Io finish oattlo well is one of the ob.. jects of the feeder, and oatmeal has a great reputation in this way, It is said to impart that hardness of touch to the flesh which the butcher likes, The bhot way to feed it is merely to damp it and roll into balls, allowing the animal to partake of it at leisure. There should not be more than 3 per cent. of milk-fat in' the whey, which is the serum remaining after the curd has been removed, in the manufacture of cheese. Whey should be transparent and of a greenish color. When a cheese has beg,i carelessly made the whey is rich in fat, and of a whitish, or milky color. Turpentine, ill which is dissolved as much camphor as it will take up, is pre eminently the dressing for lacera tins, bruises, and cuts. Its antiseptic action is equal to that of carbolic acid. it speedily stops the bleeding, allays the pain, and hastens the process of healing. Few, if.any, .tlcers long re sist its continual application. The nature of the ...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 18 April 1914
OF RURAL INTEREST (By "?ustious.") At tle time of writing the prnspcctl for autumnr are not cheering. Thi long-continued dryn'ýss and the advent of mornings that suggest the approaich of frost point to a bad winter, This applies particularly to the dairying industry, The Western distriot is badly in need of immediato rain, which, if it falls within the next week or so, 'night cause an increase in the supply of milk and butter. Othorwiso it will be very unlikely that any increase will take place in the supply coming to .llcbournol from that quarter until June or July. The butter now coming to Mellou'lno from many factories is very poor' in quality, Owing to the small supplies of cream in many parts of the country farmers' cans take lon ger to fill, and consequently produce only v\ery indifferent butter. Condl tions 1are generally very dry along the Murray, leas than bin, of rain having fallen in nine months, The irrgatioi areas are producing a little butter, but many factories are cl...

PREVENTION OF MILK FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 18 April 1914
PREVENTION OF MILK FEVER, Frecqunt milking, but only a little at a tune, is found one of the best pro ventives, and for this reason leaving the onalf with the cow (some say for 24 hours; but for a week is better) is generally successful. As gross feed. ers, good doers, and heavy milkers are more liable, it is a good plan to take these off green feed, and put on a spare diet of dry fodder" a week before calving. About three or four days beo fore calving a purgative is advisable, For this, 8cz, glauber salts, loz. gin ger, and a little treacle, in a quart of water, will be found effective. As the accepted ouro by means of pure air pumped into the udder seems to point to the fact that an anaerobic (without air) bacteria is the cause, it isadvis able on this and other grouiids to vig *rously disinfect floor and walls of byres1 rugs, utensils, etc., and flush out to0 cow.. A milk-fever outfit should always be kept, so that pure air can oe pumped in, and the udder and sur rouindings lisin...
