THE FARM AND DAIRY. HEARING CALVES OF TUBERCULOUS COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 22 January 1914

THE FARM AND DAIRY. HEARING CALVES OF TUBERCU LOUS COWS. This is ii subject which is ot parti cular importanco to our dairy farm ers, more particularly in view ot the fact that pasteurisation of tho skim milk is rapidly coming into vogue. [ A series of experiments havo been carried out recently by ths Koyal Ag ricultural Society of England to de monstrate the possibility of rearing ■ calves free from the disease, in spite | of their having been born of cows that react to the tuberculin test.. At ' the present time there arc on the fnrm at Woburn thirteen yearlings and two caivcs bom this year, nnd a healthier lot no one could wish to see, in spite of the fact that their | dams reacted to tho tost shortly bo fore parturition. All. that has lie™ | done is to separate the caivcs front the cows immediately after birth, and remove them to n farm n mile away, where they have been reared under circumstances that prevent direct or indirect contact wiLb the tuberculous cattle.

The Best Pearl is the Tomb of a Worm. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 22 January 1914

The Best Pearl is the Tomb of a Worm. The oyster makes a pearl tu got rid of thn annoynnrc of an enemy, generally a worm, (lint sneaks in si do his shell. Nut in doing this h<* comes nearer being "hoist by his own petard" thnn any other tiling known in the lower order of life. While he gets rid of the trouble somew'orm or oth'T foreign matter by making a pearl nronnd it, he makes himself so much more valu able t.o man by this process that his life is in ten times the danger it was from the object that caused his first annoyance. Sometimes a pearl is the result of a itrniin of sand getting inside the > shell which the bivalve is unable to dislodge. Hut recent investigations have shown that the pearls resulting from a grain of sand arc by no means as valuable as those result ing from worms. And so it is that tin- really valuable pearls are no thing more or less than tombs for cestoile or tromatodo worms. Tt is the ceslode worm that seems to l»e responsible for the best g...

Most of tho farmers under this scheme are married men, but on on«s of the farms on this colony arc two bachelor girls (they arc too young to be referred to as spinsters). To this farm Mr. H. A.

How Bradlaugh Said Grace [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 22 January 1914

How Bradlaugh Said Grace All interesting reminiscence of the Jute Mr. Charles Bradlaugh has just been given by W. Fercival Westell, the naturalist, which shows that the great "atheist" was perhaps not so irreligious as his opponents acclaim ed him to bo. Bradlaugh. savs Westell, was my father's guest, and he had come down to speak at. a big political meeting. When we all met at the dinner-table in the evening, my mother hardly knew what to do with regard to asking me, xis the eldest child, to say "Grace." Mr. Uradlaugh. keen eyed as a hawk, took in the situa tion at a glance, and at once said, "May I ask a blessing ?" An an swer in the affirmative was imme diately forthcoming, whereupon, with hands clasped, head bowed, and eyes closed, our guest uttered these precious words, "For what we are about to receive may we have truly thankful hearts."

Mouse Power. «T To nu ingenious Scotsman goes the credit of being the first person to harness a mouse and make him a money-earning factor. lie was David Ilulton, n native of Ihm fermline. Though he proved that an ordinary mouse would average a run of 10} miles a day, he had one mouse which ran the remarkable distance of IS miles in that time. A half'penny's worth of oatmeul was sufficient for its food for 85 days, during which time it ran HGU miles. Tie kept two mice constantly en gaged in the making ut sewing thread for more than a year. This thread mill was so constructed that the mouse was able to twist twine und reel from 100 to 200 threads a day, Sundays not ex cepted. To perform this task it hnd to run 10} miles a day, which it did with perfect ease every other day. On the hnlf-penny's worth of oatmeal which lasted for five weeks, one of these little mice made 3,^50 threads, inches long, and as a penny was paid to wo men for every hank mnde in the ordinary way, the mouse at th...

Artificial Pearls. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 22 January 1914

Artificial Pearls. Artificial ,pearls can be made at home withWery little difficulty. Dr. K. i.,k»segang, a (leruuin, lulls how this nuiy he done. The process is an ingenious adaptation of that by which salts arc diffused through a golut in. nitn and knowledge of tho fact that when certain salts diffuse into gelatin the 01m becomes irides cent. Tho only materials needed are pure gelatin, dilute solutions of alkali phosphates and heads to serve as a foundation for tho "pearls." The heads arc dipped in to a warm solution of gelatin ami plnccd upon a glass plate which has previously been coated with gelatin. Mound each, head is then painted a ring of a 10 per cent, solution of phosphate, or in place of this the glass plate may be coat ed with a mixture, of phosphate and jgclntin. (Jradunlly there is a dif fusion of the phosphate into tho gelatin and the desired iridcscent effect is produced. Special pre cautions must he taken to prevent 1 tho beads from drying too rapidly. When tho pro...

What Would Happen if the Earth Turned Faster. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 22 January 1914

What Would Happen if the Earth Turned Faster. H hns been calculated that if the earth were to rotate eighteen times us fast as it does now a man at, tho equator would weigh nothing and that if ho jumped in the air lie would remain there. The tnan weighing nothing at the equator would weigh ~00 pounds at the poles, and varying weights between the poles nnd the equator. There are no planets that turn eighteen times as fast ns the earth/ but there are some where the force of gravity is entirely different, to what it is here. On the moon the .average man would weigh no more than fifty pounds, it has been estimated, and could jump as many feet—that is, fifty feet—without trouble. This, however, would happen on any part of the moon, not becausc of tho centrifugal force, as would be the case if w'c were spinning about eighteen times faster, but due to a lack of gravitativo forco on tho moon. Measuring labour from our pre sent standards, a labourer would have to receive euormous prices at t...
