TAINTED MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 23 July 1914

TAINTED MILK. -u! k which is tainted by foods is in instances caused by; the mini ab sorbing odours given off from the foods at tho time of milking. In many instances the trouble of food tainted milk has been eliminated by feeding the cows after instead of just before milking, with tho foods known to produce itainta. It is also import ant to remove tho milk from tho byre as soon as each cow is milked. Sometimes, however, milk becomes tainted by feeding cows on excessive quantities of swedes. Tho turnip-crop is a valuable asset to the stock-keeper. Probably the cowkeeper and t<he shoepbroeder. are aa grateful for the lodUer supplied by tho root hexls as any other class of Mock owner.

MELBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 23 July 1914

MELBOURNE LETTER. (From our Special Correspondent.) Wattlo Day is again wtihin - hailing distance. It is a •.v..nderhilly popular institution in the ci>y, and this year arrangemonts for carrying out the cam paign are to be on a i»ore comprehen sive scale than ever. They are al ready in train, and back of them are energetic women '.nibbling over with enthusiasm of the kind that only women are capable of in these undertakings. The children's charities are to get the benefit of the proceeds. The day upon which everyone will be compelled in self-protection—or rather for the pro tection of his loose cash—to revert to the now out-of-fashion wearing of a button-hole bouquet is September 1st. The one regrettable element introduc ed by tho enthuisasm for wattle-timo is the vandalism that tttends the gather ing of the bloom. Too many people pay no regard to xhe tfees from winch they tear the golden tresses, or to the owners of the property upon which ithey grow. Councillor Carroll, of Mal ...

CHILD HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 23 July 1914

CHILD HUMOR. Tlio vast area which child-humor haw lately occupied in tho world of literature renders one doubtful whether many of ihu innuiuiable jokes foisted upon the "kiddies" are not, after all, tho work of inventive children ot larger growth than those to wkotn they aro attributed. At iirst sight it way seem singular that the majority of those funny stories are connected with scriptural history, but taking it for granted that they are the pro ducts of adult minds, it proves that the "old boys and girls" have been sharp I enough to recognise that biblical mat- I tors aro prominent in the curricula in | many schools.

HOW MUCH TO DRINK? [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 23 July 1914

HOW MUCH TO DRINK? ■ V ■— v A short time back someone took Jt Jnto his heail to inquire at the cafes surrounding the Grand Opera, Paris, if it had been remarked whether dif ferent pla.vs influenced the tastes of the audience when they adjourned for supper. The proprietors of these es tablishments informed him that B'ich was the csv>e. After '' Faust " everyone went home supperlcss, the music of Meyerbeer indicated a run on aperitifs, whilst on " Siegfried " nights " Croucroute " and " Mun> ich " were in great demand. Drink is as nccessary to the maintenance of health as is food, and in that respect it is only valuable accord ing to the amount of water it cpn tains. It is estimated that on an average H full grown, healthy adult loses 2,800 grammes, or about four and n half pints of water in 24 hours, varying with the various conditions of life, and increasing and decreasing respectively according to whether the body is active or in repose.

Meeting one day at their club, these Heroes resolved "that a uniform dress is useful and necessary; for commission ed officers, agreeable to the .practice of other nations." Barrow's "Life of Howo" tells us that Admiral Forbes, who was deputed to convoy this reso lution to tho i)uko of Bedford, then First Lord of the Admiralty, on being ask«d to choos« a uniform, said, "One with red and blue, or blue and red, as these are the national colours." "No," replied his Grace, "the King has set .led it otherwise. He saw my Duch ess riding in the Park a few days ago in a habit of blue faced with white, which took the fancy of his Majesty, and he has ordered it as the uniform of the Koyal Navy."
