Electric Lighting. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 29 May 1914

Eleotric Lighting. The directors of the Lancefield Co-operative Dary Co. met on Monday, but no .decision, was come to as to the price the coun cil should, be charged for the power for lighting the town by electricity. In the meantime the town is as depictured last issue, with gross darkness everywhere evcept where three lamps hang out like a pawnbroker's sign painted with aluminium. The subject may come up casually at the council meeting to-day, but will be held over, which will not be the council's fault, as they can't act in the absence of definite information. Some rather interesting statistics re electric lighting will appear in our next issu.e. It is safe to assert it is a success whereever it has been tried.

Home Rule. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 29 May 1914

Home Rule. In the House of 'Commons on Mouday the . debate on the Home ] Rule Bill was carried to a division. The Bill was carried by 351 votes to 274, a majority of 77, which may be considered rather narrow. The Bill was read a firsl time in the House of Lords, where the second reading (on which aebate generally takes place) will be taken on June 22. The hereditary legislators have twice given the Bill "the bird", but under the Par liament Act, which has clipped their wings, the elective Chamber having three times passed it, the Bill will only wail for King George to unearth the rubber stamp of Royal assent.

Your Feet Weigh More when You are Asleep. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 29 May 1914

Your Feet Weigh More when You are Asleep. You often heat* a person complain j of Ills head feeling, heavy after ;a i long sleep. As a motter of fact, his ; head is considerably lighter, awl his- legs and feet just that much, heavier, when he gets up than when, he went to bed. - . Rxperiinents have shown that, if .a mini goes to sleep on a bod sus pended exactly at the middle point' of his weight 'his'.head begins to tip slowly up and his feet go down Tills is due-to-tho-fact that wheit we sleep the blood in'the brain goes oft to tlie other , parts of the body. The moment the brain wokon to life again it draws the blood back, Another "of the curious facts brought to light by scientists who are fond of trying to solve tho mystery of sleep is that when one Is fast asleep some part of his brain or several parts of it may at the same time bo awake. A man may walk, talk, sing, or solve mathe matical problems, and yet at the same time bo safely in tho land of nod. It seems hard or impossib...

MILKING MACHINE. TESTS. Bulletin 353 of, the New York Ex periment Station at; Geneva reports extended tests of tho efficiency/of the . milking machine compared, with hand milking; and -/finds that it does not i measurably, influence tho yield, of milk.

THE DAIRY EXPERIMENTS WITH CREAM SEPARATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 29 May 1914

THE DAIRY ijSXEKHIMRNTS WITH ClfKAM SEPARATORS. The general opinions held with re gard to speed at\A temperature dur ing tho employment of separators have been put to test at the Experi mental Station- of the University of Missouri. The experiments showed that an increase in the speed of a separator leads to a higher propor-* tion of skimmed milk and to a high er pcrccntoge of fat in the cream* nnd, within^ ordinary limits, the higher the speed the lfss is the amount of fat remaining in the skim med milk. Tt is further declared that, con trary to general belief, a reduction in the. temperature of the milk oc casions a higher proportion of skim med milk aud a small amount of cream with a. highor percentage of fat. The oflect is said to l>e still fur ther emphasised when the separator is adjusted to deliver cream with a high fat content. ?
