"My Mother's Eyes." A newspaper recently Invited its readers to state in a few words what they considered tile most beautiful thing In the world. The first prize was awarded to the -sender of the answer, "The eyes of my mother." "The dream of that which we know to be impossible," suggested an im;a ginative person, and this brought him second prize. But the most amusing thing was that which read- "The most beautiful thing in the world is to see a man carrying his mother-in-law across sa dangerous riv er without making any attempt to drop her in."
STRANGE COINCIDENCES Scientific and Literary Parallels. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 29 April 1914
STRANGE COINCIDENCES Scientific and Literary Parallels. In the lives of most of us colnaci dence has played a part Probably nine out of every: ten peopie can re call events and dates which, co-incid ing with one another, are a source of wonderment -There are some cofnci dences, however, which are of such a character as to call for more than casual comment. In the November issue of the "Strand Magazine," for instance, there I- a photograph illustrating a phen omenon only visible in the tropics that of sanshine at noon when no sha dow is thrown by objects exposed to the sun's rays, the explanation being that the ship upon which the photo graph was taken was at the moment in the exact nadir of the sun's zenith. The penomenon was observed aid re corded by MIr. W. B. Gibbs in latitude 1t deg. South. Ia February of last year, and It is a singular colncidence that precisely the same phenomenon a-us witnessed In 1881 or 1882 by Cap tain W. 31. Gibbs, of Cardiff, at about the same time of th...
SCOURING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 29 April 1914
* SCOURING CALVES. From experiments carried out in Germany it Is claimed to have been discovered that sour milk given to calves from the irst to the fifth day of their lives; forms an excellent pre ventive of scour. The constant losses -sometimes of valuable pedigree calves-are well known in most herds, and are attributed to the curdling of the milk in the stomach. The bacteria in sour milk are supposed to act bene tficially. In Germany it is called yog hurt, produced by adding Bacillus bul garicus to milk. This generates lac tic acid in the stomach of the caives, which acts as a disinfectant, and pre vents the development of the hurt fuil bacteria, and at the same time sti mulates the activity of the intestine, probably by Droducing a ferment that destroys the bacilli which give rise to scoutr.
AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 29 April 1914
AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. Within the past ten years the dairy cows of Australia have increased from one million to above two millions. The butter produced in a single year reach ed about 200,000,000 lbs. The annual export is valued at between £3,000,000 and £4,000,000. No rural industry in Australia Is more progressive and none pays larger returns to the farmers. The mainstay of dairying Is the e cport n-arket, and easily the largest con sumers of Australian butter abroad are the people of the United Kingdom. It might be thought that the expense of carrying butter from Australia to London would be a serious handicap upon butter-making in the Common wealth. As a matter of fact, however, the Australian dairy farmer, in point of cost, is as close to London as the dairy farmers of Ireland or Scotland. The actual contract price of shipping butter from either Melbourne or Syd ney to London is 4d. per lb.
DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 29 April 1914
DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. An English dairying authority says: The elimination of the worthless ani mals should be one of the chief ob jects of the cow keeper. Milk records kept carefully and sys tc-matically furnish reliable informa tilon which enables a cow keeper to de tect these worthless animals; and it pays him to dispose of them at once. There are some farmers, of course. who nay be tempted to rely wholly on their own judgment as far as the milking capacities of any cow Is con cerned; but guess-work of this kind can teach nothing what it costs to feed cows, nor whether such food is being economically fed in relation to the average quantity of milk produced. Milk producers need to study this question of cost of food in relation to milk yield very carefully indeed. The fact is clear that a cow giving, say, SO0 gallons per annum costs practic ally no more to feed than one which only gives 600 gallons; yet, compara tively speaking, there is a loss of £6 on the latter, if th...
WARTS ON TEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 29 April 1914
WARTS ON TEATS. Many people fail to get rid of warts because they think It can only be done with great dificulty, or by tearing the wart bodily away, but this is not the case. When cows are milked twice a day it does not seem to afford much opportunity to get rid of warts. To use any substance of a poisonous nature for the wart Is dangerous In many ways. When the teats are chapped only, some kind of soothing ointment should be applied, and for this pur pose carbollsed vaseline, and other preparations may be procured from the chemist This will heal the teat up in a short time, and allow the milk ing to be carried on without any dis comfiture to the cow. in the case of warts, when small they can generally be got rid of by touching them with caustic soda. An other simple remedy, and one which in many cases has been found to be successful; rub the wart with vinegar, then while It is still wet dust It with dry carbonate of soda. If this is done after each milking, the warts will graduall...
GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 29 April 1914
GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. No branch of dairy farming is more important than the feeding and treat ment of cows; yet none is more gen orally neglected. The direct influence of what the cow eats and drinks upon the milk she produces cannot be too strongly impressed upon the attention of the farmer. Of equal importance are the conditions under which food and drink are taken. If cows are chased by dogs or over-driven, or wor ried by boys on their way to pasture, their milk will surely show the effects in a deterioration of quality. If their shelter in winter or shade in summer is insufficient, or the food Is not suf ficiently nutritive, the penalty will In variably be paid in a smaller milk yield. These restrictions are inevi table. One of the greatest mistakes far mers make is in supposing that they may with impunity keep their cows on "short commons" during the win tar and that they will fatten up in the spring, and milk as well as ever. A cow reduced to meagreness by semi starvatlon ...
VETCHES OR TARES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 29 April 1914
VETCHES OR TARES. Vetches or tares are of two distinct kinds--those sown in the autumn for spring or early summer use, and those sown In the spring which come in alter the winter sowing is used up. There are few crops which yield such a large amount of succulent green food, though perhaps for special pur poses other crops are preferable, but for general use and under all condi tions tares cannot be beaten. The amount of seed required per acre is about three bushels of tares and one bushel of oats or rye, the litter being sown to keep the tares off the ground somewhat and so prevent rotting in wet weather. In order to gain the full benefits from growing this green crop the sow Ings should be made at different inter vals, beginning as early as possible, when the land can be prepared, so that succeslsive.cuttings are obtained without allowing them to become ripe. Tares are more suitable for soiling purposes than grazingas this latter plan is very wasteful, much of the food being trampl...
THE BUSY BEE. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 29 April 1914
THE BUSY BEE, Winter is close upon us. In the coolest of our districts bees have al ready retired, and before the mont is out the retirement will be general. During the warmer portions of the days, especially it the sun is bright, the bees will still venture out, but they will not wander far from home it last month's advice has been u* tended to, i.e., if they are supplied with sufficient honey to carry them on till spring, or the coming breeding season. If bees are forced to go for aging on bright winter days, the sud den atmospheric changes prevent the return of many, and a good supply of food in the hive is the only remedy. I also forms one of the best methods to keep up the warmth of the hive. On every occasion when the weather is bright and drying, remove the wraps, etc., from the hives, and spread them out to dry. External dampness produces internal dampness, which Is one of the most prolific causes of di sease. Just before sundown retulrn the protectfons to the hives. The eve...
WINTER CARE. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 29 April 1914
WINTER CARE. The season is at hand that is the hardest on our ever faithful friend the horse. The raw, damp, windy or extreme cold weather, together with a little neglect, may cause the loss of a valu able horse. When a horse comes in wet from work or drive, rub him well and cover with a warm woollen blanket. Always change to a dry blanket' when the horse has cooled. Rub the legs well with a wisp of straw or a towel. Every horse is more or less wargn when he comes in from a drive. Never strip off the harness or saddle and let the horse rush into a feed of oats or a trough of water. Never give water or oats to a horse until he has been in the stable some time, and has had some hay, This is a sane and safe practice and much loss can be avoided by en. forcing it. Chang~e the hit of the horse with tile sensitive mouth. Take off the checi., or let it out. Try a large rub. hercovered bit. If the horse "drives on one line." look to his tooth at once; a sharp tooth i ul:sually the cause.

In Abraham's Country. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 29 April 1914
In Abraham's Country. The journey from Beirut to Alep po. scarcely longer in point of mile age than fromn London to Manches ter. took t us nineteen holurs. A good-natured Turkish oficer shared the compartmient, and helped to en liven the way, as well as to keep undesirables from trsvellinig with Ius. Beyond Hamn, on the riser Orontes. we could see several of the high water wheels which are used to raise water fromn the river to the high ground on either side. 'Lhese naurn. as they are called, are of huge di nlensions, some of them nearly it feet in diameter. As the wheel passes through the water, small boxes are flledl with the fluid, and. when they reach the top they empty their contents into a trough, from which the water is dlirected into the necessary channels, Night and day these wheels turn, and are only to hie stopped by diverting the force of the water below into another cours.. Altogether, it is a curious examlile of Syrian engineering, anld tlh, creaking of the wheels, tog...
