Potatoes as a Food for Pigs. From Germany comes an account, of experiments that should bo of in terest to agriculturists at this time. They demonstrate the possibility of profit from swine husbandry.

How to Neutralise Dangerous Stomach Troubles. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 25 June 1914

How to Neutralise Dangerous Stomach Troubles. Few people besides physicians real ise the importance of keeping the food contents of the stomach fr«e from acid fermentation. Healthy normal digestion cannot tako place while the delicate lining of the stomach is be ing inflamed and distended by acid and wind—the results of fermenting food in the stomach. To secure per fect digestion, fermentation must be stopped or prevented, and the acid neutralised. For this purpose physi cians usually recommend getting a little bisurated magnesia from the chemist and taking half a teaspoonful in a little hot or cold water immedi ately after eating. They recommend bisnratad magnesia because it is plea sant to take, lias no disagrocablo after effects, and instantly stops fermenta tion, neutralises the acid and makes the sour acid food bland, sweet, and easily digested. The regn .r uso of bisurated mag nesia—be sure you got the bisuratod, as other kinda- of- magnesia are of little value—is an ab»olute ...

AUSTRALIAN SHEEP HISTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 2 July 1914

AUSTRALIAN SHEEP HISTORY. Tho way in which tho Merino flocks were established in .Australia was somewhat romantic. "Tho Spanish Government retained for some time tho monopoly of Merino sheep, , and the sending of these animals outside of tho kingdom was attended ,.with severe penalties. But between 1705 and 180'J on soveral occasions cxceptinos were made as a compliment to a neighboring king or government. In 17(io the Elector of Saxony was pre sented with a llock, and in 1775 soma animals from the Spanish -.flock of Count Negretti wero given to tho Aus trians. Tho Saxon flock was estab lished at Lohmen and gradually bred to an exquisite fineness of*wool. The Austrinns placed theirs at Hostitz and bred for strong barrel-like bodies. (Jtlier sheep sent to France wero tended at tho farm at : Rambouillet and bred for large frames and long woo)-. •Others again sent to Holland were partly re-exported to the Cape of Good Hope.

Falling Hair Caused by Dandruff How to Destroy tho Dandruff Germ and Save Your Hair. Thin, brittlo, colorless, and scraggy hair is mute evidence of a neglecled scalp, of dandruff, that awful scourge. There is nothing so destructive to the hair as daudruff. It robs the hair of its lustre, its strength and its very lifo, eventually producing a feverish ness and itching of the scalp, which if not remedied, causes tho hair roots to shrink, loosen and die—thon the hair falls out fast.

"It's nitrogen that makes things grcon," .Said this inan of active brain; "And potash makes the good, strong straw, And phosphato plumps the grain. But it's clearly wrong to waste plant food On a wet and soggy field; I'll surely liavo ttf put in drains; If I'd increaso the yield. ■ And after I have drained thejland 1 must plough it deep all over, And even then I'll not succeed.. Unless it will grow clover. » Now, acid soils will not produce A olover sod that's prime, So if I have a sour soil, ' I'll have to put on lime. And, after doing all these tilings, To make success more sure, I'll try iny very best to keep From wasting the manure.
