THE GARDEN. COLOUR IN APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 26 June 1914

THE GARDEN. COLOUR IN APPLES. Evidence in support of the old ' oj;l lion tbat sunlight is the chtcf 'agent in developing colour in applet) is afforded in a bulletin from tho ' Pennsylvanian experiment station on | "The Fertilising of Apple Orchards." ( Various dressings were applied to.the. trees in order to ascertain their re-' spective effects upon growth of wood and yield and colour of fruit. Farm yard manure and nitrogenous artifi cial manure alone or in combination notably increased growth and yield, but reduced colour. Tha latter is at- I tributcd to "delayed maturity and a diminished light supply to the fruit, ! due to an increase in the density of | the foliage.". It is added that ex- ; perlment8 proved that exposure to , sunlight after picking increased red- | ness by over 35 per cent., while some : of the same lot of fruit stored in ! darkness showed practically no deep- j etiing of colour. The conclusion is j that "maturity in sunlight on the j trees is'undoubtedly the gr...

THE DEAD SEA A HEALTH RESORT. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 26 June 1914

THE DEAD SEA A HEALTH RESORT. -I Sir John Gray Hill, a Palestine* explorer, believes that the curative value of the waters of tho Dead Sea will some clay make its shores a placo of resort in the winter months for curative purposes. " I have found the uso of tho Dead Sea watei' most invigorating," he says. "I get a . supply at my houso brought in oUl petroleum tins on donkey back, and uso it somewhat diluted for my morning tub." It may. be some time before tho inva lid tide sets that way, but tho other attractions of tho country should aid its popularity." "Docs tho baby talk yet ?" asked a friend of the family of the little brother, "No," replied tho little brother, disgustedly. "Ho don't need to talk. All ho has to do is yell, and he gote everything in tho house worth having*"- 1933.

HINTS ON PIG FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 26 June 1914

HINTS ON PIG FEEDING. ?' i It is reported from England that a farmer owning a number of pigB was in the habit of feeding them with tlie Ititchcn rofusc from a restaurant, to which he added barlej meal and molasses to flavour the food. As un experiment he omitted the molasses which the pigs liked very much, and then found that the excrements of tho animals contained pieces of undigest ed food, and that the animals be came finicky in eating. When he again added the molasses these symptom* disappeared ; the pigs ate greedily, and the food was quite dig(stcl. Salt is another substance that adds to tho flavour of many foods m^kinj fbcm more appetising and therefore more digestible. When cooked p tu tocs arc fed to pigs, salt should al ways be added, and every farmer knows that a little salt mixed with hay, that is not quite as fresh as it might be, is a great improvement. It is said to be a fact that tho pigs of large litters are usually more uniform in size, and fatten more quickly than...

Colouring Copper. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 26 June 1914

Colouring Copper. Copper and brass lend themselves readily to a colouring process and may be worked to all shades imagin able, excepting the lighter shades, which are lost on a copper surface, as that metal cannot be given a tint lighter than its natural colour, says a correspondent of Sheet Metal Shop. Zinc colours fairly well | sometimes, through a narrow range, while tin is a hard metal to handle as regards oxide colours. Copper can bo carried through the entire runge of shades, from a very light copper colour to the darkest brown, or even black, by merely oxidising the surface of the inetat. Make a paste of iron oxide and graphite, with wood alcohol or with plain water, and apply this to the article, which is then heated in an oven or over a gas flame. It is better to use alcohol, as it dries out much, quicker. The colour ob tained will . depend on the amount of iron oxide mixed with the gra phite, .and the -length of time the heat wns maintained. The more oxide in the coating, ...
