BITS ABOUT PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 1 April 1914

©1T8 ABOUT PIGS. Washing with. warm water and ear. bolieo acid soap and then grease with lard to which a little keroseno has been added will curoe mango in hogs, Early breeding can never bring such marked improvement in the milking qualities of sows as may be secured by careful selection and proper feed* lng when young., Young pigs are at no time too young to escape liabilities to which older animals are liable, and the tendencies are lncreased by nearness to the date of births. The longer the pigs can be made to stretch out the dooper the aides, the more muscular the hams; and the firmer the legs the better moat they will make. Pigs to return the most prolt must malke a quick growth and an early maturity. This implies a steady growth from the start, and this growth must be secured at the lowest cost. At weaning time, from eight to ton weeks old, the pigs should have learn ed to depend so niuch on artiflcial foods that removing them from their dam will not check their growth, The bi...

THE HOUSEHOLD. CHOCOLATE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 1 April 1914

CHOCOLATE. Ohooolate, which during the last forty years has been gradually becom ing one of our staple foods in all classes of society, is valued not only for its pleasant flavour, but for its great nutritive powers, and for being easy of digestion. As a beverago it is more wholesomo tlhan tea or coffeeo, and its effect is particularly restful and refreshing. Those who suffer from obesity are generally deprived of its use, as it is a food which assists in the increaso of fat; but there are some preparations of chocolate from which much of the cocoa oil has been ex" tractel, and which are unsweetened, These are often allowed, and are made palatable by the addition of saceha" rine, Skimmed milk. would for s'bch persons replace new milk, and whip. ped white of egg would take the place of cream, though. neither would make such a deliOcious beverage or sweet as chocolate served with cream, Thele following recipes are reliable and simple - Hot Breakfast Chocolate,-To ever; pint of milk al...

FOR THE FARMER. A THOROUGH FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 1 April 1914

FOR THE FARMER. ·IUe--·-4--, A THOROUGH FARMlER, What makes a thorough farmort Certainly it is not the number of acres he farms, for usually the moro acres, the less thorough the operas tions on the farm, Hlow, then, shall we know him? Suppose we measura him by the following atandard: 1, The highest degreeoo of okill and intelligence, 2. The most careful prosecfation of fertility, 3. The beat and most thorough me*. thods for carrying on the farm, That formula, it seeoms to us, is the standard we should always carry with us wheroby to menasure our own work and standing as farmers, or those of others, Victoria has quite a number of such larmers, and they can be found In other States, especially if such a spirit and standard has hoen prossed up on the conviction of the farmers of that State, One thing we note almost always when we strike a "thorough farmer," and that is that he is almost always on a modenrate-sized farm., He seems to bo more concerned about getting large returns from f...

CELLULOID SUBSTITUTE FROM MILK. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 1 April 1914

CELLULOID SUBSTITUTE' FROM MILK. There is being built up a consider. able industry in the manufacture of galalith, or milk atone, which is cheap. er than celluloid, and has the imDoit2 ant advantage of being nonwinflam. mable, The raw material, remarks '"Science Siftings," is skimmed milk from the large co-opcrative dairies. To this in largeo tanks is ladded ronnet, coagulating the casein, which is press* ed, dried, powdered and freed fron its cheesy odor by repeated washings, and is finally hardened by formaldo. hyde. The product is more brilliant, more solid, and a trillo heavier than celluloid, It is as easy to work as wood, and can be made into a great variety of articles, such as combs, hairpins, piano keys, buttons, knifeo handles, umbrella handles, backs for brushes, DDaper knives, dominoes, in. laid ornaments for furniture, and al. most any object requiring solidity and fine polish. It can be given any color, or made to imitate marble, coral, tor toise-shell, etc.

USING THE CREAM SEPARATOR. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 1 April 1914

USING THE CREAM SEPARATOR, Variations in the richness of separa. tor cream may be caused by changes in the temperature of the milk, chan. ges In speed of separator bowl, varla. tion of the amount of mruilk run through the separator in a given time, or the amount of skim milk or water used to flush the bowl when through ao' parating,' . . Some one of these reasons pirobably accounts for the variation in the test of cream when the creamnscrow has not been changed. To have the best results it is necessary to separate at the same temperature, with the same speed and flow of milk each time, Even then the richness of the cream as it comes from the cows will have some effect on the final product, Generally speaking, the higher the temperature the richer the cream, and the lower the temperature the less will be the per cent, of fat shown in the cream. A aeparator that will worn satisfactorily when all conditions ar right will give poor service if the ran chine gets out of level, or if the b...
