THE FOOTSTEPS OF A DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 22 January 1914
THE FOOTSTEPS OF A DOG. For the information of those who art in the habit of sending a dog for their cows, I wish to report a little experi ence which I have had along this line. I tested the milk from a oow after she was brought up by a stable dog, the dog in torn being in charge of a small boy. She was considerably excited and quite warm. Her mUk tested 2.3. The next morning her test was 4.1, and a week later, when she was brought in by a man and perfectly »ol, her milk tested 6.2. Now you '■au figure out whether or not it pays to use a dog around the dairy herd. 1 should state that the pasture and feed were exacfly the same in each in stance."

The Benefit of Legumes [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 29 January 1914
The Benefit of Legumes It is a well known fact that a vig orous leguminous crop such as pens or clover enriches tho land in nitrogen and that .mother crop, say wheat or oats, following in rotation will benefit from the nitrogen residues.. Kecent investigations show, however, that tne cereal uiay derive benefit from the 'eq uine even when both aro growing at the same time. In tho "Jour. Agric. Kei.," vol. 3, experiments aro describ ed bearing this inference. Oats were grown in quartz sand in small pot» placed in larger pots also filled with quartz sand, but growing peas. Tho inner pots thus grow oats only and tie larger outer pots peas only, and in both cases all the necessary plant foo.|, were added except nitrogen. Tho inner l>ots were of two kinds. Where tH«y were of the ordinary porous pattern tbe oats grew vigorously. In tho lauer case it is believed that solublo nitrogen ous matters diffused through tho inner pot from tho peas growing outside. Confirmation of these results u...

The Flavor of Butter Injured by Metals. [From the "Journal of Agriculture."] [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 29 January 1914
The Flavor of Butter~Injured by Metals. [From the "Journal ol Agriculture."] Tho United States Dairy Division has been investigating the effect of the presence of a small amount of iron or coppor may have on the flavor of batter. They report that very small amounts of theso metals in (lis cream cause curtain undesirable fla vors to increase in intensity during storage. These flavors are often de signated as "metallic," "oily," or "fishy." Experiments were carried out using known quantities varying from 1 to 000 parts to a million parts of cream. Tho butter was stored and examined at intervals varying fvoni 20 to 187 days. Tho most noticeable feature was tho rapid development of barl flavors in tho butter containing the iron. Butter made from cream which has stood in rusty cans devel oped a peculiar taste easily picked out. The influence of copper was even more marked than that cf iron. The work shows that if cream is kept in rusty cans or comes in con tact with iron or copper during...
