THE DAIRY PAYMENT FOR BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 28 August 1914
THE DAIRY PAYMENT FOR BACTERIA. Cleanliness haa a market value. This is particularly true where cleanliness contributes to the quality of tbfe food product. It has always been recognised that cleanliness should have a most important place in' the production of milh, but strange to say, until recently, the number of quarts of milk arid its chemical composition were the only &lt; things on which prices have been set. , No'price was set on cleanliness. The' results of clean methods are the banishment of dirt and the banish ment of bactcria from milk. As soon as the certified milVi movement be gan, prices immediately jumped for certified milk from 4d. to 6d., then to 74d. and now to lOd. per quart. The chief reason for this was the standard for ba£teria which was set at 10,000 c.c. by the Certified Milk Commission. In certified milk we have only one standard for .cleanli ness and one price. There are no de grees of excellence provided, and no prices corresponding" to the same. W...
THE FARM. ARE PHOSPHATE AND POTASH WASHED OUT OF THE SOIL? [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 28 August 1914
THE FARM. i ARB PHOSPHATE AND VPOTASH WASHED OUT OF THE SOIL ? It is said that the best timo to ap ply basic slag and kainit .is ta autumn or early winter, as by this early application the phosphoric acid In the slag becomes available for the plants in the spring, when they start growing, and the potash in tho kain lt improves in condition, having part ed during ,tho winter months with the proportion of chlorides which arc notv desirable for tho crop. But the question is often asked whether, with such early application, there is not a great risk of loss of the valuable constituents from bein; washed out during tho heavy winter rains, especially in meadows and pastures which are subjcct to beta? flooded, or, if not washed away, washed too deeply Jnto the sod. It might naturally bo assumed that this would be the case, but expei ence shows that there is not much ground for such apprehension, especi ally if the heavy rain docs not comc directly after tho applicflticn of th? manures.

SCOTS IN MEXICO. I HOW THEY FARED DUIUNG THE FIGHTING. . In an interesting letter to a rela ...tivo Jiving in Edinburgh, a lady in Lerdo, Mexico, gives the revolution experiences of her family, consists of her father/ a medical doctor in practico there, her grandmother, an Edinburgh lady, daughter of J)r. , Campbell, of Ticardy Place, and her sister. The. family had resided in Lerdo for some years. On returning from business one day, says tho lady, bullets occa sionally crashed through the win dows of tho cars, but none of us wero injured, and wo all arrived safe at Lerdo. The shots wero now so nfcar that tho ticket office officials brgged mo to stay there and not attempt to go home, a distance of only five squares.

CHAPTER XX. LOOKING BACKWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 28 August 1914
CHAPTER XX. LOOKING BACKWARDS. | . Joshua Hetherington sat, to all I appearances, composed and quiet. In I reality he was simply, wild with ap prehension. "The strongest piece of evidence fcg&inst your nephew is that fact, that a dagger, such as would have inflict ed the wound that killed the doctor, was in his possession at the time of the murder. It seems the housemaid at Mount House is engaged to the village constable, and when they wero discussing the murder, she told him > that Mr, Jack had a dagger in his room, and she, at her. lover's re quest, handed it to him. Then of course, there were the threatening words'he used. But personally X do not believe him guilty," he said. "You are rignt ; he is innocent. Dr. Fitzpatrick may have had enemies* bitter enemies, who had even greater reason to wish him out of the way I than Jack had. You knew him in i timately ; do you know of any such [person?" she asked, fixing her eyes keenly on him. "No, but it is possible he had an ...
CHAPTER XIX. BROUGHT BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 28 August 1914
CHAPTER XIX. BROUGHT BACK. "Call Margaret Wcdmore." As tho name fell on his cars Josb Hetherington started and looked round in time to sec hor. enter, and he was struck afresh by, her loveli ness and grace, which was not mar red by the sad expression her face wore. As ho looked he scarcely mar yelled that the dead man had loved her, rather than his richly-dowered daughter. "Miss Wedmore, is it true that the dead man asked you to be bis wife on the afternoon previous to his death, when he was on the eve of marriag# with, another lady ?" "It' is quite true, and I thought he must have been out of his mind, or he Would never have spoken such words. Indeed,' when I heard that he had died a violent death, I came to the conclusion that he. had commit ted suicido while out of his mind," she said, speaking in a clear, dis tinct tone. The coroner shook his head. "A man cannot stab himself in the back. And now, Miss Wedmoro, I want you to tell us about this quar rel between your cousin and the...
A Dainty Collarette. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 28 August 1914
A Dainty Collarette. Here is a design of a particularly pretty collarctte that may be car ried out with almost any small remnants of ribbon, lace, and silk, and that specially recommends itseU for the ease with which ifc can be made. Jn the large sketch the collarette may bo seen laid out perfectly flat, in order to show the way in which it :is arranged, and in the small sketch it is shown in position upon a figure. Tt. consists of a band of velvet ribbon, trimmed on the j outer edge with a broad frill of luce, and inside there is a small vest of spotted silk, fastening with three tiny gold buttons, and, by the way, this little vewt should be ; finished ofT at tho neck with a small ribbon bow tic. The col lours be selected to harmonise with the costume with which the col larette is to bo worn, and the sketch so clearly shows its nature that further description is unneces sary. - >.

Hoaxing the Senators. THE STORY OF A PRACTICAL JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 28 August 1914
Hoaxing the Senators. THE STORY OF A PRACTICAL JOKE. An amusing practical joke has just been played upon French Ministers of Parliament by a Parisian journalist. Every Deputy or Senator is glad of an opportunity to bring his name before the notice of his con stituents, and no method is sim pler than that o( subscribing for the erection of a statue to some dead and gone French celebrity who is in danger of being forgot ten. Knowing this, flays the ' Times ' correspondent, a clover newspaper man invented a fictitious personage named Hegesippe Simon. Then he sent a printed circular to over a hundred Deputies, inviting them to bccome honorary members of the committee which was being organ ised to celebrate the centenary ot the illustrious Hegesippe. For the benefit of those who might have forgotten this literary giant he ad ded a quotation from his works, "When the sun arises, the darkness vanishes nway." The Deputies; who were unwilling to admit ignorance of the great man or to lose a ...

" The House of Gold." NERO'S MARVELLOUS 1'ALACE IN HOME. An interesting description of the wonderful "House of Gold " which Nero had built for. him between the Palatine and Esquiline hills in Rome was given by M. Prcclmt in a recent lecture in Paris. This mighty palace, covered with plates of gold enriched with ivory and adorned with a multitude ofi beautiful statues, covered an area equivalent to the Champs Elysecs j and tho Place- dc la Concorde. The | Emperor conceived the idea after reading Ovid's description of the Palaco of the Sun in the ".Mctn morphosis." And it was in the guise of the Sun God that Nero had a statue of himself made near ly 09ft. high. This colossus stood in a great four-horsed chariot, and was erected in front .of tho "House of Gold/' Within tho palaco walls was a lake, which ancient authors compare to a soa, and on its waters were given the sumptuous nautical fes-: tivities of which one reads. .Like a fairy palace the "House of Gold" | was, and as such it v...

The Land League, in pursuance ol .ft new method of agitation, warned Captain Boycott's servants to leave. He was left without a labourer, and his crops lay ungalhercd. No bflack smith would work for him ; no shop* keeper, would serve him ; no laund* tft!ss would wash, his shirt. On November 12, 1880, about 160 Infantry, with two pieces, and 150 ol the constabulary, invaded the dis* trict to escort a body of labourers, who were to.gather in the crops.
