STELLAR STRUCTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 February 1914

STELLAR STRUCTURE. (By EDO AH Gl'OlEN J,AUKI >i\) The siderul universe, the temple of the stars, in the eyes of astronomers is becoming more and more impres sive in its magnificence with each new discovery. The very limits of imagination in the mind of man in its present state of advancement are reached ; and then expanded. Supposing an almast invisible grain of sand should get into the wheels of a watch and disturb their motions ; then this would be com parable to the appearance of any minute new moon in the solar ma chine. The disturbance of other bodies by its attraction would soon be detected by modern microscopic accuracy of observation. And then "the new Btraiiger would be in the clutch of high mathematics within a day or two. It would be mea- | sured and weighed in short order. ! The solar system having been con quered and explored, then the in conceivably greater machine, the uni verse of suns far and away in the distance, was the object of re ts "arch. The early astronom...

THE DAIRY. CONTROL OF WATER IN BUTTER. IMPORTANCE of WATER CONTROL. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 February 1914

the dairy. CONTROL OP WATER IN BUTTER. IMPORTANCE of WATER CONTROL. First of all it is necessary to know how to control the, water in hutter in order to keep within the limits of tlite law which classes butter as adul terated when it contains 16 per cent, or more of water. That there is a danger of exceeding this limit is evinced by the number of penalties which buttermakers have been oblig ed to pay in recent years. There is also a great deal of butter on the market which is unnecessarily low in water content. This means a reduced yield in butter, and conse quently places the manufacturers of such butter at a disadvantage with competitors who are obtaining nor mal yields. Finally it is necessary to under stand the means of controlling water in order that uniformity may he se cured with respect to this constituent of hutter. THE BUTTERMAKER'S LIMIT. While 16 per cent, water is legally approachable, the buttcrmaker, to he on the safe side, should make 15 per cent, his limit. To allow...

A NEW HEALTH DRINK. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 February 1914

A NEW HEALTH DRINK. A new health drink, known as fer mented milk is being prepared and sold by the dairy department of the College of Agriculture, Ohio State University. A bacteria, called bacil lus bulgaricus, is the activo principle in this milk, which acts as an intes tinal disinfectant and helps to keep the bodj healthy. Other bacteria can hot live in the presence of this germ, which was discovered and named by Dr. Metcimikofl, the famous scientist. In preparing fermented milk one part of the culture i of bacillus bul garicus and one part of the ordinary lactic acid culture are added to two parts of sterilized skimmilk. Enough pasteurised sweet cream to make the mixture contain two per cent, butter fat is then put in and the whole churned for about five minutes to mix thoroughly. It is then put up in fancy bottles and placed on the mar ket. This milk does not wliey oft and the longer it stands at the proper temperature the better it gots.

Both properties were uninsured, and tho origin of either is not known. With three fires within a week and the information that an attempt had been made to burn down lleid and Go's, premises on Sunday night residents were somewhat dumb founded on Monday morning. It appears the latter premises were broken into through a glass door, a candle taken from a packet in the grocery department stood in a parcel of inflammable mercery to act holder, and then placed on the bottom shelf of'the fittings in the drapery department.

CHAPTER XVIII. IS SHE GUILTY? [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 February 1914

CHAPTER XVIII. IS SHE GUILTY ? When I returned to the Hall that; night, X felt very sad. I was almost certain Mary Hirst would be convlc- j ted, and I knew she had been goad- j ed into the .act—that was, if shfc was i guilty ; and in the face of the evi- j dence I could not doubt it. j I longed for tills trial to, be over , and get away. I had been successful , in my work, but the success had j l«5en very painful to me. It was one j thing to hand a cool, calculating; villain over to justice, and anofher ! to be the means of fixing the crime I on a i beautiful and, I was certain,] pure-minded girl, who possibly had i been nearly frenzied when she had. done it. j One piece of evidence had electri- i fled me as much as the general pub- j lie, and that was Miss Latimer's ad- j mission of Mary HirBt's visit to her j on the gfternoon of the murder. T . had never liked the young lady, and her manner during the trial had dis gusted me, and I felt sure she hated Mary Hirst. However, her stat...

Speaking Walls. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 5 February 1914

Speaking Walls. . By means of an ingenious electvi- ! cal device, passengers at the New ] Grand Central Terminus at New York are informed of the forth coming departure of trains in a manner that makes it appear as though tiie walls were speaking. Thirty-six mcgaphonic transmitters are hidden in the walls of the var ious rooms of the station. These are operated by only one announcer, who talks in an ordinary tone into a single transmitter at a central point. The transmitter is surround ed by a water jacket through which a tiny stream of cold water flows constantly, cooling the carbon, which would otherwise become packed with the heat of the heavy current of 110 volts used in operating the an nouncer. The ordinary telephone requires only a small fraction of this amount, but it is through the employment of the heavy voltage, says the "Popular TClectricity Maga zine," that the remarkable results are obtained. The voltngo is equalised, and the circuits so bal anced, that the sound of the...
