COLOR OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 9 July 1914

COLOR OF MILK. The color of milk will vary with the breed of cow, yielding the milk, and the feeding the cow receives. Some foods have the effect of giving th milk a good flavor, and other kinds of food just the reverse. The natural color of milk is due to the coloring matter, "lactoclirome," pre sent in the ibutterfat., Milk is paler in . color during winter or when the animals are given dry feed. Rich col oring milk yields butter of a deep yellow color when it is well made. Several faults in the making of but ter cause much of tbe color to dis appear, and this should be guarded against.

NERVOUS WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 9 July 1914

NERVOUS WOMEN. "When tAie nervos get out of order the whole system lags In sympathy. The digestive system, the liver, and the heart all refuse to do their work. Every nervous woman should eat sev eral times a day. She should eat three meals, have a light luncheon between meals, and never omit a warm drinlt taken just before' jhe goes to bed. Gentle exercise and work are as ne cessary to the woman with nerves as food and fresh air. An active interest in life will be her salvation, but gen erally the woman in such a conditio-1 thinks she is not interested in a thing in life so she must keep at work un til she develops an interest. A celebrated physician has said "If-you wish to avoid nervousness live with, reason,. have a purpose in life, and work for it; play joyously, strive not for the unattainable, be . not an noyed by trifles, aim to attain neither great knowledge nor great riches, be not self-centred, but love the good and thy neighbor as thyself."

MANURING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 9 July 1914

MANURING POTATOES. Potatoes, like nil oilier crops, le quire a complete manure, viz., a ma nure containing nitrogen. phosphoric acid and potasii, lime also if tho soil is deficient in this necessary consti tuent. Nitrogen may be used in var ious iVins-blood and bone, sulphate of ammonia, or nitrate of soda. It the first is used, it is better to apply it at the time of planting, as it is much slower in its action than either of the others; the sulphate of am monia is sometimes applied at plant ing time also, but it is better applied afterwards as a Tfcp dressing when the ?plants are two or'three inches high. With regard to nitrate of soda, this is so extremely soluble that it should only be applied when the crop is near ly ready for earthing up. Phosphates may be used in various forms, super, bonodust, or slag, according to the nature of the soil or the particular fancy of the user. Iu any case, a lib eral dressing Is necessary. Potash is best applied in the form of sulphate of potas...

CONFESSIONS OF A LINER CHAPLAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 9 July 1914

CONFESSIONS OF A LINER CHAPLAIN. There is nothing that produces a feeling of speedy death quicker than sea-sickness. It is very rarely that anyone actually succumbs to it, but if a person suffers from it badly it is dif ficult to drive home the fact that re covery is certain. I have seen all the horrors of a deathbed scene enacted over people suffering from an acute attack. Knowing that in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred it leaves no serious effect, it is very diflicult to assume that you are ministering to the dying. And at times a perfectly sincere effort in this direction will terminate in comedy. People lie in their bunks pale as death. The chap lain is fetched, ami he is assured by the sufferer that burial at. sea is a cer tainty. lie is of another opinion, but maintains if possible a. sympathetic tone. I confess to having cultivated many hypocritical looks and senti ments, which 1 have sometimes enjoy ed. One night 1 was called to the lmnk of an old man who had been ma! de ...

The Federal Fight. OF the many illiterativo phrasos which tick 1 o the ears of tho un thinking, few have boon moro greviously overworked than Mr Doakin's " neckiaco of negatives." Tho words wero spoken at what, to use another expression much mouthed at the time, was the " psychological moment." Labor had succeeded, or was succeeding, in forcing a hide bound party 'system on a reluctant community. The Democrats of that day found that they must join Labor in tho movo towards ill considered nationalization, or must halt till less advanced Liberals overtook thorn. Tho outcomo was Labor's sensational victory of 1910. Gradually, tho Liberal Party massed, with tho result that in 191o it turned crushing defeat into semi-victory. But face to face | with a factious Opposition, and with a majority of but one, Ministers had to act much as though the Liberal Party wero a necklace of negativos.
