Newspaper-Articles

  • 3 Jun 1905: WAS IT DESERTION? A Peculiar Charge.
    A man named William John Smith was charged on Monday with leaving his children without means of support. Messrs. Francis and Hester, J.'sP., were on the bench. Elizabeth Smith said the defendant was her husband. He had sent her no money for the children since April or May last year.
    Mr. Lamplugh, who appeared for Smith, said this was a peculiar charge, and the particulars of the case were interesting. The family originally lived in Gippsland, but Mrs. Smith came away from there with her father and the children, and left Smith there by himself. She had practically deserted him. Smith was only a labourer and could not send any money. It was hardly fair to ask him to keep up two establishments.
    Mrs. Smith said that when they were in Gippsland they were living on her father's farm. It was not paying, and it was sold on the understanding that her father was to start a business in town, and that they were to help him. She came away with her father, and they started a business in Hawthorn, but Smith did not come with them. The business was not successful and she had to do laundry work.
    Mr. Lamplugh said Smith had offered to take the children.
    Mrs. Smith : But I would not allow my children to go and live in a bark hut.
    Mr. Lamplugh : Smith had arranged to have the boys live with him and the girls were to go to his sister. He was clearing a selection, and had, moreover, been ill in the hospital, and he could not send any money.
    Mrs. Smith said they had been married for 19 years, and she had been working hard in Port Melbourne for four years, and her husband only sent her an odd pound. She had no preference for Melbourne, but could get more work here.
    Mr. Lamplugh: Smith was clearing a little farm at Yarragon, and he thought the boys could help him. He had a cabin with two rooms.
    The case was dismissed. Elizabeth Allan Smith3

  • 8 Nov 1939: Victorian Motorists Injured
    Two Victorians were injured near the Coombe railway station today in a collision between a motor truck and the motor car in which they were travelling from Adelaide to Melbourne. They were brought to Bordertown by the mid-day train from Adelaide, and admitted to the Tatiara Memorial Hospital. They were Alexander Andrew Buchanan, 34, of Manor Grove, Caulfield, arm and possible internal injuries; and Lydie Mavis Buchanan, same address, facial and arm abrasions. The car was badly damaged.

  • 10 Nov 1939: Motorists Injured. Car and Truck Collide on Duke's Highway
    Two Melbourne residents, Alexander Andrew Buchanan (34), and his wife, Lydia Mavis Buchanan (30), both of Manor Grove, Caulfield, were badly injured when their four-seater sports car came into collision with an unloaded five-ton truck, driven by Mr H. K. Nash, of Keith, on the Duke's Highway, near Coombe Siding, 12 miles from Keith, about 11.30 on Tuesday morning last.
    Mr Buchanan sustained a broken rib and extensive abrasions. His wife was severely cut about the arms and face. They were brought to Bordertown by the midday train and admitted to Tatiara Hospital, where they are progressing satisfactorily.
    The accident occurred almost opposite the siding and within a chain of the spot where the fatal accident occurred last Easter. This is on a stretch of long, straight road. Both vehicles were approaching each other, the car travelling towards Bordertown on its way to Melbourne, and the truck from Keith in the direction of Combe Siding. The truck turned across the road, the driver apparently thinking he had ample time to go into the siding, when the vehicles came into collision. The car struck the truck in the centre and was completely wrecked. A tyre had to be deflated and a gutter dug in order to release the car from the truck, which was not damaged.

    The proceeds of the Sixth Annual La Mode Ball, held in the Morwell Town Hall on Tuesday night last, will, as was the case last year, be devoted to the Shire of Morwell Ambulance Appeal, which is expected to benefit substantially when the final figure is announced.
    Again this year a debutante set was featured and eight young ladies made their official debuts into the social world.
    Colourful frocking against the stage background of green foliage interlaced with streamers of various shades added to the gaiety of the scene and made the 1950 hall a fitting successor to its memorable predecessors.
    The official party, which was introduced and welcomed by the shire president, Cr. A. W. Ronald, included Mrs. Brown, wife of Mr. G. W. Brown, M.H.R. (unable to attend), who received the debutantes, Mr. and Mrs. Alex Buchanan, of Beaconsfield, Mr. Harry Essery, representing La Mode Limited, and Cr. and Mrs. J. C. Bush.
    Mrs. E. Brown charmingly replied to the welcome tendered.
    For the company, Mr. Essery apologised for the unavoidable absence of the chairman of directors, Mr. W. S. Reid and its Melbourne manager, Mr. John Teague.
    On behalf of the debutantes and their partners, Mr. Bush made the presentation of a silver dish to Miss Winnie Sedgwick in appreciation of her work in training them.

  • 17 Aug 1950: DOG MOTHERS KIDS
    NANNY goats at the Saanen goat stud of Mr and Mrs Alex Buchanan at "Pine Lodge," Beaconsfield, have few motherly duties. Alexandrina of Killamount, the Buchanan's German shepherd bitch does them and devotes nearly as much time to the kids as to her own offspring.
    Mr and Mrs Buchanan breed German shepherds and Welsh corgis as well as goats Drina is a prize winner at many shows, but has never let her successes interfere with her maternal duties — real or foster.
    Today Mrs Buchanan said that Drina started looking after newly-born kids on her own initiative several years ago. She attends all the nanny goats' confinements, washes the newly-born kids and looks after them until they stagger to their feet.
    The nannies don't resent it in any way.

  • 8 Nov 1939: Victorian Motorists Injured
    Two Victorians were injured near the Coombe railway station today in a collision between a motor truck and the motor car in which they were travelling from Adelaide to Melbourne. They were brought to Bordertown by the mid-day train from Adelaide, and admitted to the Tatiara Memorial Hospital. They were Alexander Andrew Buchanan, 34, of Manor Grove, Caulfield, arm and possible internal injuries; and Lydie Mavis Buchanan, same address, facial and arm abrasions. The car was badly damaged.

  • 10 Nov 1939: Motorists Injured. Car and Truck Collide on Duke's Highway
    Two Melbourne residents, Alexander Andrew Buchanan (34), and his wife, Lydia Mavis Buchanan (30), both of Manor Grove, Caulfield, were badly injured when their four-seater sports car came into collision with an unloaded five-ton truck, driven by Mr H. K. Nash, of Keith, on the Duke's Highway, near Coombe Siding, 12 miles from Keith, about 11.30 on Tuesday morning last.
    Mr Buchanan sustained a broken rib and extensive abrasions. His wife was severely cut about the arms and face. They were brought to Bordertown by the midday train and admitted to Tatiara Hospital, where they are progressing satisfactorily.
    The accident occurred almost opposite the siding and within a chain of the spot where the fatal accident occurred last Easter. This is on a stretch of long, straight road. Both vehicles were approaching each other, the car travelling towards Bordertown on its way to Melbourne, and the truck from Keith in the direction of Combe Siding. The truck turned across the road, the driver apparently thinking he had ample time to go into the siding, when the vehicles came into collision. The car struck the truck in the centre and was completely wrecked. A tyre had to be deflated and a gutter dug in order to release the car from the truck, which was not damaged.

  • 15 Sep 1947: Big revival in stud goat breeding.
    Stud breeding of goats has made rapid strides in Victoria in the last two years.
    Membership of the society has increased from 11 to 45 since it was formed less than two years ago.
    Goats were exhibited at the Royal Show for the first time last year. Although the entry this year is not so large, four breeders will exhibit a select entry of 11 goats.
    Breeders have been concentrating on improving their herds during the last 12 months, and about 100 Saanens have been brought from NSW.
    Breeders who have made these importations include: Mr A. Buchanan, Beaconsfield; Mr P. J. Crafter, Croydon; Mrs H. Grayson, Heidelberg; Mrs S. Hill, Croydon; Mrs P. M. Keighran, Montrose; Mr H. J. Perrin, Shepparton; Mrs R. Trinham. Red Hill South; and Mr R. J. Wyrie, Kallista.
    Provision was made recently for registration of Angora goats, the first two members of this breed to join the society being Mr F. C. W. Barton, of Paynesville, and Mrs E. L. Ingpen, of Crossover.
    Perhaps the most interesting feature of all in this revival of goat keeping in Victoria has been the regular supply of goats' milk to the Mercy and Children's hospitals for children who are allergic to cows' milk.29

  • 6 Jul 1950: La Mode Debutante Ball.
    The proceeds of the Sixth Annual La Mode Ball, held in the Morwell Town Hall on Tuesday night last, will, as was the case last year, be devoted to the Shire of Morwell Ambulance Appeal, which is expected to benefit substantially when the final figure is announced.
    Again this year a debutante set was featured and eight young ladies made their official debuts into the social world.
    Colourful frocking against the stage background of green foliage interlaced with streamers of various shades added to the gaiety of the scene and made the 1950 hall a fitting successor to its memorable predecessors.
    The official party, which was introduced and welcomed by the shire president, Cr. A. W. Ronald, included Mrs. Brown, wife of Mr. G. W. Brown, M.H.R. (unable to attend), who received the debutantes, Mr. and Mrs. Alex Buchanan, of Beaconsfield, Mr. Harry Essery, representing La Mode Limited, and Cr. and Mrs. J. C. Bush.
    Mrs. E. Brown charmingly replied to the welcome tendered.
    For the company, Mr. Essery apologised for the unavoidable absence of the chairman of directors, Mr. W. S. Reid and its Melbourne manager, Mr. John Teague.
    On behalf of the debutantes and their partners, Mr. Bush made the presentation of a silver dish to Miss Winnie Sedgwick in appreciation of her work in training them.

  • 29 Jul 1953: All about goats
    Next week "The Weekly Times" will begin a series of articles about goats, their value - as milk-producers, the best breeds, management, and other aspects of the keeping and care of these useful animals.
    - The articles have been specially written for "The Weekly Times" by Mrs Patricia Buchanan, of "Pine Lodge," Beaconsfield, president of the Victorian branch of the Goat Breeders' Society of Australia.
    Mrs Buchanan's advice will be timely because of the recent extraordinary demand for goats' milk and for breeding goats. This demand has led to a rapid expansion in goat-keeping.
    In her first article Mrs Buchanan will discuss the value of the goat.
    Her second article will concern the various breeds, and subsequent contributions will cover management, feeding, and other important subjects.
    If you are interested in goat-keeping, order your copies of "The Weekly Times" from your local newsagent.39
  • 5 Aug 1953: Goats produce more for weight than other farm animals
    This, is the first of a scries of articles on goats, specially written for "The Weekly Times" by Mrs Patricia Buchanan, of "Pine Lodge," Beaconsfield, president of the Victorian branch of the Goat Breeders' Society of Australia.
    In recent years there has been an extraordinary demand for breeding stock and goats' milk, and many people propose starting in the industry. The information given by Mrs Buchanan, who is a goat breeder, should prove helpful to them.
    Why keep milking goats?
    There are many reasons for doing so, all of them good reasons. Compared with other domestic animals, the female (called a doe) produces the greatest quantity of human food in relation to her own body-weight. She is a gentle creature, and a clean one.
    She is a handy size and doesn't take up much room. Where there is only a limited area of land and no regular supply of fresh milk available, the goat, properly cared for, will provide an amazing amount of high-quality milk for a small amount of food.
    Her milk is invaluable in the feeding of infants and children. To those with eczema and asthma it is often the only form of nourishment which can be assimilated and is indeed a life-giving necessity to many.
    The nutritional value of goat milk is high. The curd, being small, light and flocculent, is more easily digested, and it is claimed that the milk can be digested by the human stomach in 20 minutes. Protein is high, too, and the fat globule being so small makes it a useful fat, readily converted into energy. Goat milk gives the greatest possible nutrition with the least possible effort by the stomach.
    Tuberculosis in the goat is almost unknown. Consequently the milk does not need boiling or pasteurisation, and thus retains the valuable vitamins. Many people are interested in the breeding and exhibiting of pedigreed stock and although not possessing
    broad acres and perhaps engaged in industrial employment, this interest may be realised by owning goats.
    Easy to handle
    Transport to shows, or anywhere else, is no problem, as these animals ride well in the back of a car (with the seat removed) and also in the sidecar of a motor cycle. The need for more primary production is always being stressed. It is a vital need, and a start in this way could so easily make one "country minded." Also a Junior Farmer could quite well manage his own herd of goats and so gain practical knowledge in animal husbandry.
    A word about pedigreed stock. A pedigree doesn't ensure that the animal will be a perfect specimen with a high milk production,
    but it means that some care and thought has been given to the breeding with these objects in mind, and a known background is
    something tangible on which to build.
    The droppings from a goat's house are an excellent fertiliser for the garden. Analysis has shown the manure to be higher in nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash than ordinary farmyard manure. Many families of early settlers in Australia were reared on goats' milk. No one will deny they grew to strong and hardy adult hood, by their vigor and capacity for hard work making possible so many of the things we have to day.
    Wrong ideas
    It is always surprising to find some of the mistaken ideas there are about goats. These can best be dealt with in the form of question and answer.
    Do goats smell? The females do not. The male (called a buck) exudes a peculiar odor from the skin during the breeding season, if he is not kept clean and well housed, it can be most offensive. It is unnecessary and indeed uneconomic for any but the larger breeders to keep a buck. He eats a lot of food and has to be maintained all through
    the year, although the breeding season is only for a few months of the year.
    He needs good and secure housing, and much time must be given to grooming and hygiene. By taking the doe out for service, a more comprehensive breeding programme is
    possible.
    Don't goats eat any old thing? — No. Goats are most fastidious eaters and will not touch soiled or contaminated food. Neither will they drink stale water. We have all seen the miserable creatures (quite well-bred ones, too) which are tethered on a patch of dusty scrub.
    Feed them well
    Their backs are humped up and they bleat pathetically. Although hungry, they will not eat the soiled pasture. Unfortunately for themselves, they do manage to exist, and even produce a little milk on very meagre rations. Goats are browsers and require a varied diet. For body growth, reproduction of young and milk supply, correct feeding is essential
    Isn't goat's milk strong? — Wrong again. Goat's milk has a smooth, rich texture, is a little sweeter to the palate than cow's milk, and has an appealing taste and flavor.
    It contains a larger quantity of calcium and as much as 10 times the quantity of iron found in cow's milk. The vitamin content is high. Its reaction is alkalising. This is of great importance to those who suffer from weak digestive processes or ulcers. The best test is to try some.
    Next week: Goat breeds.40
  • 12 Aug 1953: Three pure breeds of dairy goats in Australia
    In the second of a series of articles on goats — the first appeared last issue — breeds are discussed. The author is Mrs Patricia Buchanan, of "Pine Lodge," Beaconsfield, president of the Victorian branch of the Goat Breeders' Society of Australia.
    There are many and varied types of goats in Australia and the original animals came out here aboard sailing ships; they provided the milk supply during the voyage, and on arrival went ashore with the new settlers.
    As land was taken up in outlying parts and also when the first gold was found, the goats were taken further afield to provide milk, cream, butter and meat. Wethers were in common use for carting water and wood.
    In 1913, to improve the milk yields of goats, the New South Wales Depart|ment of Agriculture imported Saanens from the Continent and established a stud at the Nyngen Experiment Farm.
    This was closed down in 1933, but because of a considerable demand the department has again, with further importations, established a stud of Saanen, British Saanen and British Toggenburg at the Condobolin Experiment Farm.
    Unfortunately, the Victorian Department of Agriculture has not, as yet, followed this good example. Goat milk is of such value in the treatment of allergies in children that departmental assistance in the establishment of goats would be most helpful to Victorian breeders.
    Those early in the field had to find out so much by the hard way, the "trial and error" method, which apart from being expensive uses, up much time establishing an industry.
    While there are many pure breeds in the world, we have only three purebreeds of dairy goats in this country — Saanen, British Saanen and British Toggenburg — all Swiss types with fine, upright ears, and bred to produce high yields of milk.
    The Saanen is a white goat, originating from the Saanen Valley in the Canton of Berne, Switzerland, where there is rigorous culling of animals not up to standard to ensure a level type. True Saanens must trace back to the original Swiss stock on both male and female sides of the pedigree.
    The British Saanen was evolved in England from the selective mating of the true Saanens with goats of mixed breeding. This was continued with rigorous culling until a type had been set which bred true.
    This type was officially recognised as a breed by the British Goat Society in 1925.
    Type must conform to standard specifications
    Obviously, it could not be called Saanen as this name is reserved for the Swiss stock, and its direct descendants, so it was called British Saanen.
    The name was not a good choice as the word British has caused much confusion in this country, but it must be kept in mind that it is a breed name. For example, Friesian cattle bred in Australia are still called Friesian.
    Just any goat white in color is not a Saanen breed. There are standard specifications to which the type must conform. From time to time it is necessary to go back to the true Saanen sire to maintain the desired characteristics and assure good white color.
    Approximately 30 inches high at the shoulder and weighing 135 lb. and upwards, the adult female is a strong boned animal with a deep body and a placid temperament. The ideal color is white, but cream and palest biscuit are found and are recognised.
    Ears are of medium length, erect, and carried pointing forward giving an alert and intelligent expression. Naturally hornless is the ideal, but horns keep re-appearing, and it is desirable to disbud kids born with them to prevent "bullying" when they grow up.
    Proud head
    The face is either straight or slightly concave, and the whole head proudly carried on a long slender neck fitted into fine shoulders. Some do have short beards and some have "tassels," but these things are unimportant. The coat is short and fine, and sometimes has a fringe of longer hair along the back and down the hindquarters. A deep chest of good width should show strength, but without any suggestion of coarseness.
    Straight, strong legs and neat feet support a deep roomy body with well-sprung ribs. The outline is of a "wedge" starting at the neck and steadily in creasing in width to the level of the hips. The back should be level from shoulders to hips of good width, and then slope gently to the tail.
    Summarised, the breed points are —
    The ideal type. — Head: Ears erfect, pointing forward. Hornless. Facial line straight or dished.
    Neck: Long and slim with or without tassels. Coat: Short and fine, sometimes with a fringe of longer hair along the back and down the hindquarters. With or with out beard. Color: White.
    Differing from the ideal, but found and recognised. — Horned, or disbudded. Black spots on the skin of the nose, eye lids, ears and udder. Color, pale cream or pale biscuit. Slightly raised bridge to the nose.
    New arrivals
    The British Toggenburg is another breed built up in a similar way to the British Saanen. The Toggenburg goat, which hails from the Toggenburg Valley in the Swiss Canton of St. Gall, was used on animals of mixed origin and eventually a type was set, in appearance like the true Toggenburg, but larger in all respects, and with greater variation in the color of the coat.
    Its characteristics, apart, from color, may be regarded as the same as the British Saanen. They are fairly recent arrivals in Australia, and with their cofbr and markings look most attractive.
    Numerous brown-colored goats are claimed to be Toggenburgs, but the pure bred animals have a definite and distinctive pattern of markings.
    Color may vary from fawn to dark chocolate, with white markings as follows: Facial stripes from above the eyes to muzzle.
    Edges and tips of ears. Legs, from knees and hocks down. On rump and on or about the tail.
    Variations which differ from the ideal but are recognised are: Long hair, cream instead of white markings, indefinite facial stripes, white or cream bellies and slight white or cream markings under the neck and on the cheeks.
    To round off the desirable characteristics of the adult female, of course, a capacious rounded udder, carried well forward and with teats pointing down ward and slightly forward (of a convenient size for milking) is essential to complete a picture of the ideal milking goat.
    The male of each breed should conform in type, color and markings. He is of course, taller, bigger and heavier than the female and essentially masculine in appearance.

    Mistakes in tethering
    By Mrs Patricia Buchanan, of "Pine Lodge", Beaconsfield, president of the Victorian Branch of the Goat Breeders' Society of Australia.
    It is amazing the otherwise sensible folk who tether a goat in the middle of a field, on a heavy chain, move the animal when they think of it (which isn't very often), and expect it to thrive. Goats don't like rain, and they simply hate wind.
    If one must tether — and sometimes it is necessary to do so — attach a light chain with a swivel snap hook to the goat's collar. The other end of the chain should also have a swivel and be attached to a ring placed over a tall stake in the ground.
    Start off the day with the chain let out a couple of yards, and from time to time let out a little more. A goat will always go right to the extent of the tether and eat in a circle, leaving uneaten the middle part where the chain has been dragged over the pasture.
    Another method is to have a length of wire, pegged into the ground at each end, and attach the chain to the wire. Whichever method of tethering is adopted, the important thing is to change the position several times through out the day and keep the animal on fresh pasture.
    Keep away from low fences, as goats are agile creatures, and many have been killed by jumping a low fence and hanging in mid-air on the other side of it.
    To keep any animal constantly on a tether without any sort of shelter is firstly cruel and secondly wasteful. A certain proportion of food is used up in keeping the body warm, and so an animal exposed to wind and rain has an uphill job.
    In summer, the water she drinks should go towards body maintenance or the production of milk and not just to keep her body at a reasonable temperature.
    KEEP SHELTERS DRAUGHT FREE
    Goats don't need to be pampered, but they do need dry, well - ventilated, draught-free shelter. Elaborate housing is nice, but not necessary. Each goat should have a space of at least 4ft. by 5ft. with provision for food and water containers, and a dry sleeping place.
    This can be a low platform made of wooden slats and lightly covered with straw or deep straw litter placed on the floor of the house.
    Where space permits, it is a good idea to have a "loafing" shed. This consists of an open-fronted shed, fitted with hay-racks and extra salt blocks. Provide a loose box where the doe in kid may be housed when her time draws near.
    By nature goats are browsers and need variety in their diet. They will not eat soiled or contaminated food. Therefore it is necessary to see that concentrates and hay are fed in suitable containers, and waste of food is thus avoided.
    For concentrates, a galvanized bucket hung on a chain is an effective container. Adjust the chain to a height so that the goat may eat comfortably from it, but is unable to put its feet in the bucket. Put hay into racks, or hang up a sack with a hole cut in the side of it, large enough for the animal to put its head in to eat the hay.
    Ration well
    No amount of food can be specified for a ration, as variation in the size and milk production of the goat determines the food need.
    As a basis to be fed twice daily, a quart tin contain ing a mixture in the proportions of ¾ lucerne chaff and ¼ bran or crushed oats, with a teaspoonful of powdered mineral lick is recommended.
    Goat's milk is high in mineral content, and it is necessary to replace the minerals used up in the body in the manufacture of milk.
    Up to double this quantity may be required where the amount of milk production warrants it.
    To reduce cost, the chaff may be half lucerne and half oaten. The inclusion of a little linseed meal not only increases the protein content in the ration but gives lustre to the coat.
    In addition, ample quantities of good meadow hay or lucerne hay must be provided. A salt block should be available at all times.
    It is necessary for a goat to have some succulent food daily, and the amount of this is governed by the grazing available. Thoroughly clean fruit and vegetable peeling (not potato, potato peelings or tops), silver beet, cabbage leaves, kale, carrots, parsnips, swedes, tops of root vegetables, bean and pea haulms, rose hips are suitable.
    Like leaves
    Leafy branches which may be cut and hung up in bunches include fruit tree prunings, tree lucerne (which is best fed partially dried), willow, birch, ash, gum leaves. The goats eat the leaves and twigs, then strip the bark from the branches.
    A plentiful supply of fresh clean water must be available at all times. As an inducement to drink as much as possible, offer warm water in which molasses has been dissolved at the rate of two tablespoons to a gallon water.
    Any change in the diet should be introduced gradually. When goats have been on poor grazing or mainly stall fed, do not suddenly put them on to lush green pasture.
    They should never be put on lush pastime without first taking the edge off the appetite with a good foundation of hay.
    Plants which are poisonous to goats include rhododendrons, oleander, azaleas, foxglove, poppies, all bulbs, cherry laurel, Irish strawberry, lilac, privet, laburnum, convolvulus.

    KID REARING CALLS FOR MUCH CARE
    In this, the fifth of her series of articles on goats, Mrs Patricia Buchanan, of "Pine Lodge," Beaconsfield, president of the Victorian branch of the Goat Breeders' Society of Australia, discusses the rearing of kids.
    The articles have created wide interest, showing the growing popularity of goats for milk production. It is to be hoped that the information given will lead to better management of this stock.
    The doe will milk for a longer period and give a higher yield of milk if the kids are hand-reared. Several ways of rearing kids are outlined here, and whichever one is adopted the essentials are: That the kid is fed the colostrum. It is kept warm. All feeding utensils used are thoroughly sterilised.
    The newly-born kid may be taken from its mother immediately and before she even sees it gently rubbed dry with a clean towel and put in a warm, draught-free place. (A tea-chest with some straw in it is excellent).
    Wash the doe's udder with some warm water, dry it and then milk — from
    both sides — about half a pint of the thick, yellow milk (colostrum), which is then fed immediately to the kid.
    Repeat at three-hourly intervals for the first three days, taking the milk from the mother as it is needed. Make the last feed at night as late as possible. If the udder is very full,
    milk a little more than is needed and feed it back to the kid. A feeding bottle with rubber teat may be used, or a shallow pan. The pan method gets the kid used to taking food from a dish, and it will more readily nose at dry food and water when these are presented to it. o prevent the kid going in "up to the eyes," use a shallow dish and keep pouring in a little at a time as the kid drinks. Gently wipe the mouth after each feed to avoid the milk drying and making the skin sore.
    Alternately, the kid may be left with the doe for the first three days to obtain the colostrum. Set a feeding routine and keep to time — say 7.30 a.m., 11.30 a.m., 3.30 p.m. and 7.30 p.m. Use whole goat milk, which must be fed warm, 95 deg. Fahr. Too hot or too cold causes scouring.
    PROVIDE HAY AND CHAFF EARLY
    No quantity can be laid down, but the kid should be allowed as much as she will take and the amount increased as required. At about ten days old a pint of milk will be consumed at each meal.
    A little grass will be nibbled now, and a small
    quantity of dry food should be offered — a rack of meadow hay, salt block, and a mixture of lucerne chaff, bran and mineral
    lick. Encourage her to drink some warm water between feeds.
    At two months old, give the kid three milk feeds daily, say, 7 a.m., 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. At this time she will be taking about 1¼ pints or a wine bottle full at each meal. If milk is in short supply, the kid can be put on to a good
    quality calf meal, prepared in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
    Introduce the calf meal very gradually, as changes in feeding often make the kid scour. If scouring occurs, give only warm water which has been boiled and allowed to cool, for the next couple of feeds.
    After four months, give two milk feeds daily, morning and evening, and as the amount of solid food eaten increases, one feed. In rearing first-class stock a small quantity of whole milk may be given as long as the kid will take it, but usually at six months of
    age it is refused. The advantages of the
    next method are the saving of time and the fact that the kid learns to eat solids a little earlier. The disadvantage is that no check can be made of the doe's yield or the amount of milk the kid gets. At weaning, both doe and kid fret for days.
    Leave the kid with the mother through the day. Take it away about two hours before the night milking. Milk the doe right out and give the kid a feed. In the morning take some milk from the doe and restore the kid to her for the day. See that both sides of the udder are evenly milked, or the result will be a lop-sided vessel.
    When about three weeks of age the kid begins to romp. Allow room for her to do so and provide a heavy upturned box. She will have lots of fun and exercise jumping up and down from this. To lay the foundation for attaining their maximum potential growth, it is essential that kids be well and adequately fed dining the first few months of their lives.44

    POPULAR NARRE WARREN lass, Miss Judith Eccles, has been selected as Narre Warren’s Belle for the big Belle of Belles Ball in the Dandenong Town Hall next month.
    The selection was made at the recent very successful annual Hospital Ball in the Narre Warren hall and Judith, partnered by Mr. Max McGill, looked lovely in a white tinsel net frock etched with gold mounted over taffetas and satin, and featuring halter neckline and bouffant skirt.
    There was a splendid crowd at this enjoyable function, which was organised so admirably by the ladies of the Narre Warren-Narre Warren North Hospital Auxiliary.
    Just how well they worked is shown toy the sizeable profit of £62/11/5 which they made from the night.
    Mrs. Buchanan, from Upper Beaconsfield, and Mrs. Syd. Thewlis, of Pakenham, who judged the Belle of the Ball competition were thanked by the Auxiliary president Mrs. Randle and presented with lovely floral tributes.
    The competition for the Dinner was won by Mr. L. McGill. Music for the ball was provided
    by the Arcadians and Mr. Alf Fox was M.C.
    The supper which the ladies served patrons was delicious.49
