THE FEDERAL POSITION. IMPENDING BATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

THE FEDERAL POSITION, j IMPENDING BATTLE. Battle is in the air, nnd, if Labor is to be routed, Liberals mysi be enthusi astic and well organised. That the number of votes recorded for the Senate six was the largest ever polled at an Australian pre-election augurs well for the earnestness and discipline of the party in the coming struggle. Yet to affect a belief that the Cook Ministry is on the eve of an easy and overwhelming victory would be idle. For some years the Commonwealth has been politically a house so equally divided that it has been hard to say to which side a majority inclined. Nor has there been any marked indication of a noteworthy change in the electoral strength of parties. Vim and generalship will win, but will win with little to spare. The battle is at hand at last. Mr. Cook has long been eager to get to the country, and Labor now thinks that the chances are in its favor. lis leaders fancy that the pendulum swing is to | wards it. Liberals have been in office for tw...

THE DAIRY .. _ . i . —^ MILK PRODUCTION. QUANTITY AND QUALITY—EX HAUSTIVE INVESTIGATIONS. A great deal has been heard o! late j of various phases of the question of , the milk standard and the basic causes of the variations in the qua- j lity of milk. A very exhaustive con- i tribution to this subject is contained j in a book on "Feeding of Crops and ! Stock,", by Dr. A. D. Hall, director I of the famous Rothamsted Agricul tural Experiment Station in Eng- [ land, which has been in existence j since 1843. This able work contains j a chapter on "Milk, Butter, and | Cheese," wbish deals with a great j many questions connected with the j production of milk, butter, and ' cheese, and the results of the experi- , ments in the variations in composi tion of milk are particularly inter esting. AVERAGE COMPOSITION OF MILK j As a result of about 200,000 an alyses, the av'rnge composition of milk, for instai.ce, was found to be : —Fat, 3.9 per cent. ; protein, 3.5 ; lactose, 4.75 ; ash, .75 ; a...

A QUESTION OF COW VALUES [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

Fortunate indeed is the dairyman i who owns a good cow and knows it. j Likewise fortunate is ho who owns a ■ poor one and knows it and has sense ! enough to send her to the block ra I ther than sell her to his brother | dairyman Tor ;v boarder. j The good cow of the real dairyman have records and usually aie not for sale. It is the dairyman who consi ders it too much bother to make a record who needs to learn something about cow values. Is it not true that more times than one we have owned cows which we thought were jist ordinary indivi duals and which wc wore induced by the dealer to sell at a low price, but later we had discovered that we sold the "gooso that laid the golden egg" ? Then again, have we not owned cows which because of their large milk flow at freshening time we have held on to with the tenacity of a bull dog, but which always stands dry a good while ? The individual record sheet will reveal some aston ishing facts about the performance ...

THE GARDEN. ROSE MILDEW. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

THE GARDEN. ROSE MILDEW. | The New South Wales Bureau of ' Microbiology states that rose mil : dew is caused by a fungus, Sphaero j theca. It attacks the leaves, young : shoots, an-cl flower buds, often curl ' ing the leaves. On the shoots, calyx, ' and fruit tho fungus forms thick, felty patches that persist late into j the season, ami here produces the small black bodies containing the spores to carry it over till the next, i year. Sometimes the disease occurs in two stages — the first after the leaves arc formed, and the second ! when tho young wood has made ' growth and the flowers have com menced to appear. This is the criti ; cal period and the fungus prepares to carry, over the winter. Dusting with flowers of sulphur mired with o-ic third of its volume of lime chccks the disease. Spraying with sulphuric acid, one part in 1500 of water, is one of the best remedies. Care must be taken in mixing or diluting sul phuric acid. Put the water into an earthenware or wooden vessel, pou...

CALVES AND TUBERCULOSIS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

! CALVES AND TUBERCULOSIS. ! j Ever)one connected with farming is now very keen on the subject of fighting tuberculosis among our herds. It is pointed out, however, in a contemporary, that most of us are working from the wrong end altoge ther. We are treating animals after they are attacked, and proposing to have them examined and slaughtered, whereas nothing is done at the other end, as it were, to breed animals freo of tuberculosis. It is well enough known now that a calf from a tulicr culous cow may be perfectly, healthy, and nearly always is to start with, and if wo feed it on healthy milk, and keep it away from tainted- sur roundings, in ninety-nine eases out of a hundred it would grow up a good and healthy animal. The whole point, therefore, empha sises the fact that we should set about rearing our calves under proper conditions, and that we might in a short time bring forward herds which would be absolutely sound to begin with, and these would take the place of others more or...

EYEBROWS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

EYEBROWS. T Eye-brows that are lighter in col our than the hair are usually a sign of weak constitution, but eye-brows darker than the hair generally go with a vigorous mind and body, more especially when they are bushy and tufted. As a general rule the closer the eyebrows lie to the eyes, the greater are the powers of concentration, though sometimes such brows are as sociated with a suspicious nature. Well-arched eyebrows arc assign of artistic, agreeable temperament, but when they lie far away from the eyes the owner is often most unreliable. If the eyebrows, instead of droop ing at the end, turn upwards to wards the temples, their possessor is likely to have a strong sense of hu mour, and is likely, to make a name as a comedian, or as a humorous artist or writer. From time immemorial, eyebrows that meet across the nose have been uonotiuwa wnm a passlorirete unci even a murderous temperament. Persons with little or no eyebrows arc almost invariably not ouly weak in body, but weak ...

eOMPLETH SHORT STORY. r- THE FATE OF GENERAL VALIXTO. General Valixto cat in his room, bUBy with his papers. There were stirring timea ahead, for within twenty-four hours tha insurgents un der his and Gen. Palmero's command .were to make a combined attack on Havana. Already the men were pre -paring for the fray, and ever and anon the trampling of horses' feot and the Bhrill notes of the bugle fill ed the air. One or two unimportant places had already been taken, but that was a mere bagatelle compared to the capture of Havana. Here the Spaniards wero gathered in force, ieady to make a determined stand against the enemy, and General Val ixto realised that the task which lay before him was no light one. He paused in his work for a mo ment, and, taking up a small pack age, tied round with a coloured rib bon, he deftly undid its folds, and tookj therefrom a small photo. On this he gazed fervently for a moment his naturally bright eyes growing ■ brighter as they scanned the fair features ...

THE FARM. THE USE OF THE DISC HARROW. HOW TO MAKE A GOOD SEED BED [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

THE F A R M. THB USE OP THE DISG HARROW. HOW TO MAKE A GOOD 8EBD BED On the best use of tha disc harrow, tho "Canadian Thresherman" Bays What the self-binder means in tho province of harvesting, machinery, it is safe to say the disc harrow has become among cultivating tools. Generally speaking, a deep seed bed is an absolute necessity to the pro tection of the crop in a dry season, but it is jiot expedient to plough deeply on certain soils. If the subsoil is sand or gravel and is very near the surfaco, ploughing to a depth that will bring that subsoil to the surface is not to bo thought of. It is also known that the humus on now land docs not, as a rule, extend to beyond three or four inches below the sur face, that depth should bo obserred at the outset, but each succeeding year the depth should bo increased until the subsoil is sight or ten inches deep. It has been well said that "the seed bed is the plant's larder, and it should bo deep and roomy." It is the main feeding 'ground ...

COMPULSORY TRAINING FOR GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

COMPULSORY TRAINING FOR GIRLS. Should Australian girls be brought under some system of compulsory train ing to fit them to share in the defence of the country in time of war? This is the query raised by the editor of "Everylady's Journal" for June, and answered by a number of leading citizens. The views of these notable people make very interesting and instructive reading. Summed up, the general opinion seems to be that, while it is altogether inadvisable to give girls any form of Military Training, it would be a first-class thing for the girls of Aus tralia if a course in Domestic Science were made compulsory. We read : "Lady' Creswell, wife of Rear Admiral Sir William Creswell, has big sympathy with all progressive move ments. As the mother of six children her knowledge of the training of the young is not to be classified within the realms of theory. Despite the demands of a strenuous social life, Lady Creswell has found time to personally supervise the training ^nd education of h...

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. CHILDREN'S DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 12 June 1914

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. CHILDREN'S DAY. Two large congregations assembled I on Sunday at the Presbyterian Church, when Children's Day was observed, and excellent sermons were preached morn ing and evening in his eloquent style by the Rev. John Meers. The morning service was devoted especially to the children, and the address was based upon the story of the Jewish captive maiden, 2 Kings, chapter 5, to which the little ones listened with marked interest. In the evening the subject of dis course was "The battlement around the home," Deut. 20-8. After describing the construction and usages of the Eastern house top, the preacher pointed out that this ancient injunction em phasised the value of human life, and justified Slate regulations as to sanita tion, ventilation, healthy conditions of homes, shops and factories. No man was justified in the erection of a death trap for his neighbour. But the injunc tion had application also to the preser vation of healthy and pure home life. No nation ...
