GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. • The dairy cow Is one of the beat solutions tor the problem of • the; lilgli cost of living. She not only' furnishes cheap, wholesome, and nourishing foods.

CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 April 1914
CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. Tlio value of the cabbage as a feeil 'for dairy cows- Is fairly generally known. It is a succulent feed, • is highly relished by cows, is an ex cellent milk producer, and is rich in protein. But -whilst Its value is rea lised, many dairy farmers have a rooted obection to It on account ot its liability to Impart an undesirable flavor to milk and butter. This ques tion is dealt -with by a writer in a recent issue of "Hoard'B t)airyman." After observing that the only objec tion to feeding cabbage to milch cows is the flavor imparted to the milk, he proceeds to-point out that, when fed under certain conditions, this objectionable feature can be avoided. One of the first precautions to observe is to keep the cabbage away from the* shed at milking time. Milk absorbs odors very quickly indeed, and If the cabbage odors aTe near the milk It will be tainted. An .other _ precaution to' ^observe: ia_ not to feed the cows just before milking; any higli-fiavored feed, in f...
SELECTING THE MILK COW. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 April 1914
SELECTING THE . MILK COW. Nearly every good milk cow pos sesses certain points of conformation which indicate her milking qualities. The first important point is that she shall show a lean or hony torm, with a sharp prominent backbone, ribs wide apart, sharp withers and incurv ing thighs. This indicates "dairy temperament," or, in other words, that she will turn her feed into milk instead of beef. Next she will have a long, deep Bar rel, well sprung ribs, ., broad muzzle, and a strong jaw, these points indica1. ing capacity for consuming larger amounts of feed. Third, she will show a hardy con stitution. which is indicated' by a large heart girth, a deep chest, large open nostrils, and a large wind pipe and lung capacity. Fourth, a good dairy- cow should have an udder of good size , running well forward and hung up well be hind. The region of the pelvis or the liips Is wide, as is also the space be tween the thighs as viewed from be hind, giving ample room for a large udder. A large...

MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 April 1914
. MORE INTEREST IN GOOD COWS. The experience 'already'-"gained in places where associations have'been organised shows that with the weed ing' out o£ the unprofitable, cows jcomes an'interest in bettor cows and in the greater care or tho cows. There is a tendency to make greater discrimination in price between good and poor animals. Tho introduction of better cows per medium of the testing proeeri. creates a desire for more of thorn. Thus a larger number of cows with high yielding capacity reduces the cost of collecting milk and cream m a given territory. Tho increased Interest in JaIrving stimulates an interest In. pure-brod Btoclc. Instances are given where dur ing tho llrst year's existence of a dairy-testing association only one man owned a pure-bred dairy hull; twenty two such bullB wero found anion!! tho herds the following year. While no pure-bred cows at ail \v»~o owned tho first year, twenty-one wero bought during tho second year. This Ii terest steadily increased, and durin...

THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 April 1914
THE F.LY IN THE, DAIRY. | As an intance of the numbers of bacteria the common fly can' carry, the I following figures given "by Pro fessor Easton may be cited: — He caught 100 flies in a, kitchen, put them in a pint of sterilised water and rinsed them about, and then examined the water, and found that lie had rais-. ,ed such a,number of bacteria off that each' fly averaged over 300,000. He next caught a'similar number in. the cow barn, and they . averaged over 800,000 each, another 100 In the 'pip' pen, and they, averaged over 1,000,000 each. . '■ It ,may be said that when-one goes intoa - factory or house 'and finds many flies, one Is immediately justi-1 fled; in condemning the sanitary sur-1 rcundlngs of such premises. One enn appreciate the fact that In factories where flies abound it is next to Im possible to keep them out of the milk, and the seeding of the milk by the bacteria which they carry must be very appreciable. The evil deeds of the fly need emphasising,' as too many o...

WORK THE SOIL NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 April 1914
WORK THE SOIL NOW. All orchard soils should ho: kept well worked during the summer months. It is very essential that these should have an abundant supply of moisture during the whole of the growing season. The transpiration from fruit and foliage is considerable at any time but (luring the hot and windy weather the amount of mois ture which is required by a tree, and which is ultimately transpired from the tree, is very exceptional. Excessive transpiration is often the cause of loss of young trees and of now grafts. They are found to p.iit with a large amount of moisture, aii'J are not able to retain or obtain suf ficient for their nourishment; they then very soon wither and die. The ioil p.round these should be kept well stirred, tliey_ should also be given a good straw mulch.
COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 April 1914
COMEDY; AND TRAGEDY. Come now to the actor's everyday life. It you are a. comedian you can't get any sympathy. Ever hear two men dismissing the illness of a co mcdian? Jones will say, "I hear Jack Cannot has appendicitis." "You don't say," grins Brown. And then they both burst out laughing. If an actor happens to be a tragedian it is the other way about. Every happy little episode In his life is referred to with •bated breath. "Did you hear about H. B. Irving winning a thousand at the ponies?" Smith will say. "Dear me," Robinson will reply; and they will look as if they had been asked to have a last look at the body before the lid is screwed down.—Fred Niblo on the disadvantages of being an ac tor, in "Theatre Magazine." "I owe my success chiefly to obser vation, Imagination and concentra tion. All my life I have cultivated these three faculties.

THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 April 1914
THE' FARM. HOME ATTRACTIVE; Farmer's wives and" daughters often wonder why their homes do not look as attractive as those of their sisters in town. They - say they work twice as hard, and do not have half the , chance to have a good time. One very ■ simple tiling adds , much to the attrac tiveness of tho farm home, and .tlmt • is the presence of flowers. | There is no one who can better af-' . ford to have pretty flowers than the farmer's wife, for she has plenty of land and fertiliser. There are so many pretty hardy plants and shrubs I that require little work and that when I once started will, bloom every season . ; for a. long time. There are.also many ] annual ^varieties, that will .-furnish'; cut ^flowers lor the interior of the house, such as, sweet peas, nasturtian, pinks, ■ phlox i and \ asters—my, favorites.

PREPARING THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 4 April 1914
PREPARING THE LAND. Much lias been heard (luring the last year or two as to the value of explo sives for sub-soiling land intended to be planted with fruit trees and vines, and some authorities have made out, on paper, strong^ arguments in favor of their-use. The lecturer in. viticul ture and fruit culture at the Hose worthy College, South Australia, how ever, is doubtful if. the work by such means can be performed as effective ly and economically as with teams and the ordinary implements used for the purpose. He considers .that by adopting the usual method of sub soiling a more uniform layer of soils will bo obtained to a depth .ranging' from IS to 24 inches, and the cost of such work may ho put down at be tween £4 and £6 per-aero. On the | other hand,'lie reckons that to secure . equally' satisfactory results with .ex plosives the cost will work out at £20 , an acre. In a comprehensive article in "The Journal of Agriculture" Mr., Latter. speaks highly of the Engllsh! I ditching pl...
