THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE COMPOSITION OF CHEESE IN RELATION TO QUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 31 July 1914
THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE COMPOSITION OF CHEE8B IN RELATION TO QUALITY. . In a report of tho New York Dairymen's Association for 1891, we find the following statement in an address given by Dr. Robertson i "In every case tbcro was a gradual reduction in tb« quality of cheese when there was a less quantity of butter-fat in milk. . . . However, this is true also that the increased yield of cheese is not in direct pro portion to tho increased percentage of butter-fat ; that is, milk contain ing 3 per cent of butter-fat will yield a certain quantity of cheesy but if you take milk- having one third more fat (4 per cent.) it will not yield one-third more chcese. At the same time, such milk is worth one-third more for cbeesemaking, and thereby hangs a tale. You see, if it*-, does not yield so much checse, it yields a quality of chcese so much better that the market value of the cheese, from 100 lb. of milk is a third greater than the market value of the checse in the other case. . "Every two...

One morning, soon 'nftor tho bug ler had sounded "letter call," tho spaniel came in with neither papers nor letters. This was unusual, for the officer subscribed to a daily paper that invariably arrived in tho morning's post, but ho thought littlo of it at the time. About elovon o'clock, however, tho dog on tored his master's quarters and de posited a muddy paper upon tho floor. The officer did not under stand tho situation, but ho gave tho dog a lump of sugar.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 31 July 1914
HOUSEHOLD HjNTS. Vegetable and fruit stains OH tho fingers can bo removed by dipping the fingers in very strong tea for a few minutes and then washing them in clear, warm water. To make meat cooked in a gas oven juicy, place a jam jar half 1 filled with cold water at the bot tom of tho oven. The steam rising from the water makes the air in tho oven moist and prevents the meat from getting hard. Before frying'tho breakfast bacon, cut off tho rind and dip each rasher in flour; then fry or grill quickly. This prevents tho fat from running and gives the bacon a bet ter flavour. The problem of rust stains has j been solved by holding the dam-, aged fabric in boiling ehubarb water. When washing and rinsing colour ed materials add a teaspoonful of Epsom salts' to each gallon of water, and oven tho most delicate i shades will neither fado nor run. | Serge or merino dresses, which havo been dyed black, can be .safely wash-1 ed in this way without any risk of I tho dye running. j After using ...

A market for the .arms and ammunition that important countries, discard as obsolete can be found in f partly-civilised districts and amongst rebel societies.
