TIVOLI TANGO TEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 31 March 1914

TIVOLI TANGO TEAS. A Horsham girl writes to a friend : —"If mine were a mightier-than the-sword kind of pen, I'd write a stirring epitaph to the death of modesty. This by way of pre face to the Tivoli Tango Teas, to which Melbourne is flocking just now. Everyone goes, and everyone haB an excuse. Mine was to see if it were a fit and proper entertainment to take mamma to. You've only to see the il lustrations, to decide that it most de cidedly is not. The furs are simply ex quisite, and I defy anyone not blind, to escape fracturing the last command ment. But the lingerie and Kabo cor set parade 1 At first the girls wore black ninon coats and peg-top petti coats, which somewhat toned the eff ects, and neutralised the shock, but both have been discarded, and the re sult is startling. It makes one think. The teas are most enjoyable and so well managed. The novelty appeals to one, and the charge is so moderate, it is little wonder they are rushed, but one feels that it is not quite proper...

THE MONETARY SITUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 31 March 1914

THE MONETARY SITUATION u. Between seasons it is difficult to gauge the financial position in Aus tralia. The procred.3 of the pastoral and agricultural industries for 1913 14 have become available, and have been sufficient to induce an easier feeling. But the prospects for the Goniirg season are dependent, as always, on climatic conditions, and on the whole, those conditions are not at present favorable, althoush from some districts the reports are satisfactory. Prices of pastoral pro ducts, wool, meat, etc, are liktly to be maintained at the present rather high levels, and the vital question will be that of quantity. As regards wheat, the weather has not, up to the present, been propitious for sow ing for the next harvest, but there is still plenty of time for getting in a full area under favorable conditions. Prices for metals are good enough to continue to make mining profitable. On the whole, apart from the all important consideration of the cli matic factor, the outlook is fair...

MODERN CHEESE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 3 April 1914

MODERN CHEESE-MAKING, ^ In ordinary work wo have long been used to "pasteuring" milk for the pur pose either of preserving it or of en suring good butter being Made. ^ This idea is nor- being extended to the manufaoturo -of cheese, and a "re search bulletin," issued by the Univer sity of Wisconsin, gives the result of two years' experiments on this line. The milk is first of all "pasteurised" by raising it to a temperature of from 'l(iO deg. to 1G5 dog. Fahr. This, of course, is for the purpose of getting rid of all deleterious microbes and taints which may be now non-microbic. -After this the milk is acidulated by a very small quantity of hydrochloric aoid, and then an allowance of pure .•bacteria culture or "starter" is added —tho said culturo being the ordinary lactic acid bacillus. After this tho rennet is added, and the whole process now goes forward in a straight metho dical manner.
