Morongla. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911

iVlorongla. {From our own Correspondent.) About twenty farmers and others interested in the working of the land, met in the hall on Saturday night, 18th instant, to discuss the Scale of Wages as set down by the Rural Workers Union. Discussion was freely dealt in, after which a number of alterations wete suggested. The majority of the farmers present ex pressed themselves as being perfectly agreeable to pay . a fair wage,. but they strongly object-and rightly too -to be tied down to a day of 8 hours. A farmer who has a valuable crop in the* field, fit to harvest, wants to get in as many hours a day as possible, especially when the weather I is unsettled. To enforce the 8-hour i system on such ah occasion as that, I would spell ruin and failure to the I roan on the land, I The committee of the Mechanics' ! Institute are holding a special meet ing next Saturday nigrht in order to arrange a social to take place at an early date. I Mrs. Ben. Cannon, who has been in Sydney, seeking medica...

SCOUR IN CALVES. SUGGESTED PRECAUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911

SCOUR IN CATiVES. SUGGESTED PRECAUTIONS. A calf never gets the scours while sucking its mother, because . Nature has so arranged matters that, only a small quantity of mlllc can come down into the throat -of the calf.. All the time the calf is tugging away, at a teat there is a flow of saliva mixing with the milk and aiding in the digestion. It is different,-however, when the calf is fed from a trough, especially when other calves are drinking at the samn time. They drink, so fast in order to get their share -that there is no time for a reasonable amount of saliva to flow. As n/result the milk rests on the stomach miich longer than it would had there been enough saliva to digest it properly. This is especially true when skim-milk is fed, as it lacks the cream which'is: necessary to bal ance the food properties that make digestion easier. . :. The danger of scours in feeding skim-milk, however, is easily averted by the use of a little care in the oper ation. Where there are a bunch o...

BEEKEEPER. VALUE OF BEES. AN ORCHARDIST'S OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911

BEEKEEPER. VALUE OP 1513IiS. AN ORCHARDIST'S OPINION. . A Tosmai.lin fruitgrower refers to the value of bees in effecting cross-fertili sation in the orchard. He writes: "The blossoms of the apple and pear, as in many varieties of fruit, are bi sexual-that is, the male and female systems are contained In the one flow er-and the manner in which the stamens range themselves round the stigma suggests that nature intended that these blossoms should be fertilised by their own pollen and this under normal conditions would seem to be the case, but where appa ent ly unfavorable conditions obtain tne blossoms in certain varieties ' have proved self-infertile. Darwin gays that there is a large class in which the flowers present no apparent obstacle to any kind of self-fertilisation; never theless, these plants are frequently.

POULTRY. . HINTS FOR BEGINNERS. . Experienced poultry-keepers will no floubt agree with the statement that it is often more easy to prescribe for fllseases of fowls than It is to detect khelr nature In their earlier stages; In Other words, to diagnose them. Conse quently the following hints from an exchange may be of Interest to be ginners: When the excrement secreted by the liidrieys, which is normally pure white, appears yellow, though the droppings fere solid and the bird appears perfectly healthy, look out for bowel trouble. When the crop is hard and unyielding there is danger, of the bird becom ing crop-bound. When the discharges arc streaked With.blood, It is time to give preventives lor diarrhoea. When the joints are hot and swollen and the fowl is disinclined to stand, rheumatism has taken hold. When the bird seems lame and has a small swelling on its foot, remove to a house with no perches and oblige It to roost on a bed of straw. Bumble foot is easily cured in the early st...

THE DAIRY. PASTURE LANDS. REQUIRE TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911

THE DAIRY; PASTURE LANDS. REQUIRE TREATMENT. "We are apt to think," states a writer in the "Mark . Lane Express,!' " that arable lands is more subject to loss from cropping than pasture lands, and as a consequence of this view much pasture land has been neglected. "We are accus tomed to think that two, or more than two, white straw crops in succession ex haust a fleld, and to forget that a cow yielding 600 gallons of milk removes 121b of phosphoric acid from an acre of land, besides which she stores up In the body of her unborn calf. Such cow re moves at least 151b of phosphoric acid from the land on which she grasses every year, whereas two corn crops only remove 421b in four years. It Is, there fore, certain that in four years a good cow will remove 50 per cent, more phosphoric acid from an acre of land, supposing she grazes an acre. Even if seh requires 1% acre of good pasture to support her, she will remove as much phosphoric acid per acre as is removed by corn growing on the fo...

Although . the feathers actually develop from the outer skin, it is the second skin or dermis that provides each quill wit'i nourishment. This is particularly noticeable in new feathers, the quills of which are full of blood..
