DUST AND ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 23 September 1914
DUST AND ELECTRICITY. A curious experimental electrical machine described by Mr. \V. A. Doug las ltudgo to tlio Cambridge 'Philosop hical Society depends on dust. When clouds of dust aro raisod, either by tlit] wiud or by artiiicjjil means, they aro always strongly charged with elec tricity, which is positivo or negative, according to the nature of, tlio mater ial ; and it is possiblo to obtain a con tinuous supply of electricity by using suitable apparatus to.drive a dust-la den stream of air through an insulated ttibo. WJiilo tho dust is passing, the tube will yield a steady stream of "sparks, sometimes more than 2 inch long. Tho air escaping also carries a cliargo, which in a room may bo rotainod half-nn-hour or more. Tho charge is probably duo both to the actual/' raising of tho cloud and to i'rict|6n of tho dust against tho tube. Suiali dust may bo usod as flour, sul phur, road dust, or fine iron filings.
ROAD-MENDING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 23 September 1914
I ROAD-MENDING MACHINE. I Au experimental test has been made ; in Paris of a portable road-monding ! machine, consisting of a six horse- I power gasolino engine, actuating an | air-compressor, the air being led from ; a storage tank to a pneumatic rammer | and a pneumatic pick, the latter being ; described as merely a modification ol i the well-known pneumatic l'ivetter. | The workman holds the tool close to | the road ami pushes tho pick under , the Mir'lace, raising it ah ho proceeds. ! It is said that the work was done at ;i much faster rate than was possible with the ordinary pick. The pneu matic rammer also gave good results. One advantage of the system is that Mjwial men can work from the same compressor plant. The trial seems to indicate that mechanical road-mending is more eileetive than the present me thod.
CARE OF CREAM FOR CHURNING. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 23 September 1914
CARE OF CREAM FOR - CHURNING. Good Bufctor is largely dependent upon tlio care which has boon given the i cream while it is being saved and rip ened for a churning. Improper care of cream is almost sure to cause poor but ter, while careful management of it usually will result in good butter. The margin of profit in good butter over that of poor quality is sufficient so that it is highly profitable to take every pos sible precaution which will ensure but ter of the better quality. The creamery .buttermaker has Ito talce cream as ho gets it and mako the best of it. Often it is tainted and really unfit for making a high grade quality of butter. On iho farm ono has the management of cream from the first and for this reason can make a bottor butter than the creamery if he goes about it in the right way. In the first place, I like to skim a cream of about 30 per cent. fat. We keep it in ten-gallon containers and from each ten gallons of cream we count on about thirty pounds of butter. Cre...
