KEEPING MILK SWEET. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 2 January 1914

KEEPING MILK SWEET. i An American Agricultural College, in its advice to milk producers, says: -''The souring of milk is caused by the growth of bacteria in it. The fewer the bacteria in the milk, and tho slower they grow, the longer will the milk keep. If cleanliness is observed i the. number of bacteria in new milk i will be few. Bacteria double in niim j ber.-i in now milk every twenty minutes ' when it is at blood heat. They grow i slowly at 50 deg., and not at all at J 30 deg, i The sooner milk is cooled after being I drawn from the cow the longer it will I keep. The u«unl way to handle milk j is to set the cans containing it in a { trough of cold water and stir occasion j ally until the milk bcoomes cool. It Imay bo an hour or two before the milk in the cent-re of the can becomcs cool ed, and all this while the milk-souring j bacteria are developing rapidly. It ' will pay any farmer to buy a cooler. ..In theK* machines coid water flows ithrongh the interior whifo the n»ilk . H...

PUTTING SPELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 2 January 1914

PUTTING SPELLS. Mr. M. T. Lowes, in the "Occult Koviow," tolls some stories about wit ches. In olden days Welsh witohea , used to "put spoils" on the animals of noighbonrs who annoyed thorn. If a cow was tho viotim it would sicken or no apparent disease, oenso to giro milk and, if tho spell wero not remov I ed, would die. Tho effect of "witch ing" a pig was to cause a curious kind of madness, something liko a fit; this again ended fatally unless a cona ! tor-oharm was forthcoming. Quito I recently I saw one of theso "charms" I quoted in a local paper by a collector ; of folk loro. "An old witch living not far from Llangadock (in Carmar thenshire) . . , on one occasion when eho had witched a pig, was compelled .subsequently to unwitch tho animal. Sho cfttno and put her hand on tho pig's back saving 'Duwa'th gadwo i'th bcrchenog' (God koep thoo to thino owner)." which seems a mild way of onlming a frenaiixl pig.
