THE CARE OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 1 October 1914

THE CARE OF MILK. Milk is the most susceptible of all human foods to various changes, which j render it unsuitable for use, either on account of bad odours, b,—1 "-"-"ors, souring, or other bacteria] clianges. The care of milk so as to prevent ui j undesirable happenings is, therefore, one of tlio most important parts ot daily science. In tho present discus sion, however, it is impossible to go into tliis in any detail, and it is un necessary to do so on account of the fact that the subject of practical dairy ing is roally a technical one by itsolf, and tho average farmer is "through with tho dairy business as soon as the mi lk is prod need. At any rate, he is .clilcfUv'irttofested .jfl.JtB'^DX/vJuciion rather than its manufacture into a finished food pro<luct. One point in tho caro of milk which particularly eoii.eins the farmer relates to its pre servation in a wholesome condition un ii! dolivery to tho creamery, or to pat 'uiis. lie must also give hoed to the preservat...

CURIOUS EXPRESSIONS. ORIGIN AND SIGNIFICANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 1 October 1914

CURIOUS EXPRESSIONS. OKIGIN AND SIGNIFICANCE. -Modern conversation is plentifully besprinkled with expressions and phra ses, the origin nnd earlier significance of which, it is safe to assert, ale known to few of their users. Many of theso expressions date back to very early times, when some quaint village custom or country fair gave rise to sayings which long survived their lit eral significance and are now meta phorically used for tlio conveyance of certain ideas and meanings. AX OLD CUSTOM. A typical example is tho saying, ' to let the cat out of the bag." The al lusion here is to a very old device at country affairs of selling a cat for a sucking pig. Ono pig only was ex posed to view, all the others being supposed to ho tied up in a bag ready for carrying away. If perchanco a purchaser insisted on untying the sack before paying for it the. cat leapt out, and the fraud was then discover ed. As to tho other victims, who had taken theirs on trust, they were forc ed to admit, becau...

Prize Money Abolished. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 1 October 1914

Prize "Money Abolished. Prize monoy in the British navy has l)eon abolished by an act hurried ly passod by Parliament. Thus ef fect baa buon givun after the actual outbreak of war to tho decision which the Admiralty vouched nt tho oiul of last year. The First Iiovd declared . last spring thut there was a strong I fooling among naval officers that tliu j private enrichment of individuals l^ iiels of warfare was not com patilile with tho highest conception ot tho naval and mil itftry profession. Thus a vary old custom, (luting back to tho earliest days of sea, power, has (writes Mr Archibald liiml in tho Daily TclcijrajiJi) gone its way. Tho change means a hoary loss to naval ollicors and moil. In tho Groat War tho substantial douceurs distributed by the Admiralty gilded many victories.

Paris Under "Seige." ClIAN(iKl) LlKK OF Till! PbOPI.E. Paris is olliciiilly in a "state of siege" (wrote tho Daily Chronicle's correspondent in that city soon after the ollicial declaration to. that eifect.). Although no Gurman troops me on French soil across the eastern fron tier, the capital is under the rule of a mutual Uuv as strict as though the enemy were at the gates, it has changed the life of Paris as com pletely as though it was under tho .spell of some grim enchant,menfc.

BUTTER-MILK FOR CALVES. "Noticing a reference to this ques tion," a correspondent writes, "and as wo have had. some experience feeding butter milk will tell ypu how we use it. AVe have raised two good heit'sr calves on it, and the dairy maid who told us about it said she had raised fifteen, all on butter milk. We t-'Ok the calf awuy from the oow when it was three days old, and taupht io to drink from a bucket. Fed it on the whole milk fresh from the cow until it was twelve days old. Wo began to churn then, changed to fresh butter milk, using about the same amount as wo .did of the sweet -milk and putti'ig in enough water to make it about as warm as fresh milk. If the oalf 1ms scours, as the first we raised did some times, we feed a handful of flour in a pint or two of water.

It is very seldom that a London Police Court listens to a cool and col lected confession of murder such as that recited at AVest Hani by Evan Davies, 59, n stonemason, of Hey worth Road, Stratford, who is accused of killing his wife, Sarah Jane Davies, •38, by shooting her.

On the morn ing of the tragedy, accused said, his wife asked him if lift was going to work, and when he said, "No; my hands don't feel very well," she re plied, "You aro a fraud. Get up; I can't do anything while you ai'e in the house." Ho continued: "I said nothing to her, but I thought it orer and said to myself, 'I'll muke it right for you when I do get up.' Tiiat meant that I would do away with her and her lovor. I stopped with her some half hour thinking how 1 could best find the man Scrivener, super...
