THE FARM SEPARATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

THE FARM SEPARATOR. The farm separator has come to stay, consequently the conditions un der which the machine does its clean est work should be understood. Even temperature and even speed, are imperative" if we would do the best work. Separators should be checkcd, occasionally in their work so as to guard against a loss of fat Formerly an average loss of .12 to .15 fat left in skim-milk was consid ered fairly good. At the present tiim a loss of over .5 is thought bad. It pays to watch closely, the separator. It must be borne in mind tint a slight loss in skimming reaches a prodigious amount in the course of a year. There is no machine used on the farm as much as the hand separator; hence, the importance of securing a good one and keeping it in the best of order. Separate the crcam from the milk at a consistency producing approxi mately about ten gallons of crei m from every hundred gallons of mil't. Cool the cream immediately after the separation.

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. THE PARISIAN PITMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. THE PARISIAN PITMAN. While sir Isaac Pitman died rich and honoured, the inventor of the most popular Vrcnch short hand system passed away re cently in comparative obscurity. Abbe Em|le Duploye was a young jriest who formed A sudden . and inexplicable taste for stenography (which, of cour&e, forms'no part of the curriculum -necessary to qualify 1 for I-Ioly Orders, Catholic' or Pro testant). He studied the existing systems profoundly, saw their im perfections, and decided to improve them. He quitted hi" ecclesiastical duties, and, working in collaboration with his brother, invented the Duployan system. But to invent is only the first step. The abbe's notable feat was to popularise his system. He foun.led at Paris the "Stenographic Institute of the Two Hemispheres." ' fla published journals, founded li braries, formed classes, and deliver ed lectures. : His energy was crowd ed by success. Canon Thiploye died at St. Maur des Fosses, near Paris, on May ...

The New Language of the Air. A new and very picturesquo lan guage. is being coined from Eng lish' and French words and odd bits of slang, lo describo; . the various activities of tho airmen'add tlio draft in.'which they navigato'the air. A "seaplane," "water-plane," "hy droplan.1," or "water 'bus," to give it a "few''o( .its names,'is a flying ?machine fitted with floats so that it can rise from and roturn to tho water.

TUBERCULOSIS BACILLI AND SUNLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

TUBERCULOSIS BACILLI AND ' SUNLIGHT. Investigations recently completed at one of the State Universities showed that the bacilli of tuberculosis will remain alive and virulent outside the bod} of a living animal for monthB. In the droppings of tuberdulous cat tle they lived for more than two months ; in butter in .cold storage, for ten months ; and in the tissues of a dead guinea pig, in water, for nearly a year. It is evident that a tuberculous animal, either alive or dead, is a menace unless intelligently handled and disposed of. There is one thing;, however, that is certain death to these devastating and well-nigh in vincible little germs, and that is abundant sunlight, which makes short work of them. Farmers who sneer at scientific agriculture, up-to-date me thods, add convenient, sanitary buildings as mere fads that cannot profitable be followed by the man who depends upon his farming opera tions for his living, will perhaps be able to see, in the light of these dis closures, wh...

The Royal Red Cross. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 11 September 1914

The. Royal Red Cross. The institution, on St. George's Day, 1883, of the Royal Red Cross, an exclusively feminine decoration, wns one of Queen Victoria's hap piest inspirations to associate the patron saint of England and all that stands for chivalry and cour age with a distinction for women who had manifested special devo tion in nursing the sailor or the soldier in pence or war. That, at least, was its original purpose. In the original statutes, the form of decoration "to he styled and de signated tho Koynl Red Cross" was officially approved. Then, x& now, it consisted of "a cross enamelled crimson, edged with gold, having on tho arms thereof the words Faith, Hope, and Charity, with the date of the institution, the centre having thereon Our Efligy. On the reverse sido Our Royal and Im perial Cypher and Crown shall be shown in relief," It was further laid down that it might be worn by the Queen Regnant, the Queen Consort, or tho Quoen Dowager of the United Kingdom, and that...

The Useful Reindeer. In sub-Arctic countries the rein deer takes the place of ox, sheep, and horses. It gives milk, meat, and clothing* and is a good beast of burden. From the milk'- the Laplander makes a cheese. It is true that those who have rtasjted ^it do not [ praise it; they say it isi;hard, and rank, of taste.- . But that, may he due to bad cheese-making.

The Large Ice Cave. A few years ago soma members of tho Auatrlau Speleological So ciety discovered in tho Dachstein mountains some cavorns which are among the largest in Europe. One of those grottoes, tho longitudinal axis of which is fully 6,500ft. long, moreover, turned out to offer ad ditional interest by its truly enor mous ice masses, and was found to bo tho largest known ICQ cavo in the world. Though a scorching sun may bo burning outside on the baro moun tain rock, there is always an icy wind blowing through this under world, freezing everything within its reach. Tho Dachstein ice cavo comprises several domes filled with ice, which communicate with one another through a number of frozen gal leries. Gigantic ice pillars tower on both edges of this chasm, in tho depth of which there unfolds fairyliko ice scenery. Beyond tho abyss tho caporn widens out into a mighty domo ("Tristan Dome," as it is called), whoro a plain ico sheet reaches from one wall to the other, carry ing ice ...
