PAINFUL SUNBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 3 March 1914

PAID FUL SUNBURn. _ " have seen a child (a boy of eleven) crying bitterly from the pain caused by the sunburning of his legs, which had been exposed all day long on the sea-beach to the full glare of the mid summer sun, writes Florence Stacpoole lecturer to the National Heallth So ciety of England. Many people forget that sunburn often causes as much pain as frostbite, and sunburnt legs often cause a lot of suffering from which it would be quite easy to protect them by greasing them all over before the child goes out in the morning. The nicest thing for the purpose is olive oil, lanoline, or vaseline, but this would come rather expensive if the summer should be a long, hot one, and if there should be a. large number of legs to be operated upon. It is, therefore, well to remember that any kind of clean kitchen grease a1l answer as well. The grease should be what cooks call "rendered" before it is used for an ointing the skin. The process of "ren dering" is- quite simple. Put all the ...

HOW TO OBTAIN GOOD CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 3 March 1914

:iOW TO OBTAIN GOOD CROPS. An average orop of hay extracts from the soil about 501b. of nitrogen, an equal quantity of potash, and 131b. of phosphoric acid. A question often esked is:' Should a dressing of nitrogen be appliqd to the land ? As a rule. probablev not, or to quite a limited ex tent. The clover which grows in the fiell and the bacteria which are active in 'neadow Ifild may be trusted to col lect sufficient nitrogen out of the air to nourish not only the clover but the grasses. This is assuming that the meadow contains a fair proportion of clover; when such is not the case and there is little clover, then a dressing of nitrogen is advisable and very advan tageous. The two other plant foods, potash and phosphoric acid, should be liberally applied to meadows, especially if the field is poor in plant focd. Kainit is a good form of potash, except in very heavy lands, and then sulphate of pot ash should be used. To obtain the best ci'ops the land should be well fed with potash...

REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 3 March 1914

" REASOUNS FOR ROTAT IONS. At the. basis of all genuine rotations lies.the fact that plants differ from one ainotiher in their demands upon the soilf;, both, chemical .and physical; they- differ withl regard to their root systems, depth of feeding, their moisture requirements;, •theiu time of feeding, their. dates. in .reIching maturity, etc. `':any plants impoverish the soili a few enrich it; some spoil its physical: condbition, while others improve .it .in that regard. . Iany crops favor thli growth of weeds, while others either are able to hold the weeds in check, or re q tiire such cultivation and treatment as Sill -prevent their growth. _ All these differences fit plants for different places in rotation, and a well arranged rotation is one in which the sti'ong points of one orop follow so as to fit into the weak points of another, or. vice versa, and in this way reduce deficiencies to a minimum..

HAND-REARING FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 3 March 1914

HAND-REARING FOWLS. There is a difference in oonstituents between mare's milk and that of a cow, and this must be allowed for when it is necessary to rear a foal artificially. IRoughly speaking, a mare's milk has half as mufch protein, fat, and mineral matter, but a little more sugar than cow's milk. It is advisable to uis milk from a freshly-calved cow aldi one not testing high, about 3 per cent. being a fair standard. The usual plan is to use about a fourth as imuch pure rain water as milk, and add a dessertspoonful of sugar to each pint of the mixture. The best plan. is to dis solve :the sugar first in hot water, then add enough water to make one-tourth or a pint, and make the pint up with whole milk. The mixtur6 should be warmed up to about 100 degrees -F., and the .foal given about a pint every two hours, or oftener in smaller quan. tities, if very young foals are being reared lime-water added to the milk and water corrects acidity, tends to pre vent soours, and probably streng...

-ARTIFICIAl. MILK FROM.

Demonstration has recently been made in London in the manufacture of this product, which it is claimed, contains all the elements of the best cow's milk, and can be used for the same purposes. Much interest was taken in the demonstration, among those present being Sir William Crookes representative of the Home Office and the Local Government Board, several medical officers of health, and other members of the medical profession. Mr A. J. Faulding, who will be res ponsible .for the introduction of syn thetic milk to, Great Britain, said it was more digestible than ordinary milk.
