A CHAMPION AVIATOR. » RETURNS TO AUSTRALIA. Fremautle, Tnesday. Mr. Henry J. Hawker, of Mel bourne, who is regarded as one of the world's champion aviators, re turned to Australia to-day by the R.M.S. Maloja, on a holiday trip. Hawker became famous when he attempted, in September last, to en circle Great Britain for the "Daily Mail" prize. It is just over two years since he first went to England and in that brief time he has ac complished much.

People of delicate digestion should remember that bread that has been toasted until it becomes brown has had ! the starch in it largely converted into dextrine, and hence, so far as the brown portion is concerned, one of the .processes; of digestion is gone through before the bread is taken into the,sto- . mach. It will be found that the j thinner the slices of bread, the more j easy will digestion be, and when all j portions of the bread have been thur- i oughly toasted-not burned, but chang ed to a deep brown colour-it will be j found still more easily digested.

Dairy Records [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 17 January 1914

Dairy Records j t J J. A. Ruddick, Dairy and GW Storage Commissioner, Ottawa, Can ada, writes:- . "Unless tho figures arc actually be fore one, tha variations in production found in the same herd seem almost incredible. For instance, in throe Ontario lierds, iliti difference m jieui between the best and the poorest cow runs actually at 8100, 9100 and 10,000 lbs of milk; the extremes in individual cows are 3690 and 17,615 lbs. . iuis proves that neither an occasional weighing or testing of a sample, nor a hasty reckoning of a herd's ^average yield can possibly give any measure of justice either to the abundant or to the economical producer, so that the knowledge requisite to bllildmg up a good herd has still to be sought. That knowledge can bo lound in dairy re cords."-(Circular D. and C. S.
