THE MILE-END ROAD. CAPTAIN COOK'S HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 1 January 1908

THE MILE-END ROAD. CAPTAIN COOK'S HOUSE. Romance, under the benign guid ance of the London County Council, has visited the MilerBnd road. On 9th October at No. 88, the eye of all lovers of adventure was arrested by the tablet which testifies' to the fact that Captain Cook lived there. It is not a building of the noblest type, and is probably less imposing now than when it stood shopless, front ing the sun and the rain. Cook's first house after his marriage was in Shadwell, but where no man can now say. No. 88, however, has been identified beyond all doubt as his second residence, known in Cook's time as No. 7, Assembly-row. A year before he settled here he had been appointed marine surveyor of the coast ef Newfoundland and La brador. For four years he hold this post; returning every now and then in the winter months to the Mile end house to prepare hisVpapers.. ';', :;'-;:jt.-f*«ii: . while ,u'lio-:li»ijli'^w;ittMji.

DANGERS OF MILK. FIFTY THOUSAND BACTERIA IN A SALTSPOON. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 1 January 1908

DANGERS OF mtt.tt. FIFTY THOUSAND BACTERIA IN A SALTSPOON. Speaking last night (7th October) at Greshom College on ' Milk,' Dr P. M. Sandwith, Gresham Professor of Medicine, said that millions of pounds bad been spent on hygiene and water supply, but as yet Great Britain was still very lax with re gard to the purity of the milk supply. One reason why in England they got their share of rickets — called abroad ' English disease'— was that they were not careful enough about their milk. Dealing with the sources of infection in milk, Dr Sandwith said that every hair and particle of dust which found its way into the milk pail caused a large number of germs. Milk was specially liable to infec tion in people's home, where cooking, eating, sleeping, washing, and some times even homo employment were conducted. According to the Census there were 150,000 ono-room tene ments in which more than 300,000 people lived. There were under nor mal conditions over 50,000 bacteria in a saltspoon of milk. ...

f^mim^^^0^^ 'V«HB'''-tlMrai'*jp\'JBOiBKi. H ;-.; ?:-??. PBOBUCTIOir. ' % ' ' -: The high returns from the, different egg laying competitions throughout the Commonwealth have been commented upon by many poultry journals, both in England and America. The following is by a writer In 'The Farmer and Stock breeder' (England):— There are days of record break ing. In egg averages the Aus tralians -have, gone one better than ourselves.. They are the proud posses sors of a pen of sis white Leghorns .which, In 365 days, have laid 1473 eggs. This works out at 24SH eggs each. In this competition there were 60 pens of six hens each, ana in the year the con test lasted, they, produced no less than 70,437 eggs, or Just 1$6 eggs each from the 360 birds. Is this too good to be true? Just a shade of doubt arises In. -one's mind. . That one hen should lay £45 eggs In a year, though remarkable, is nothing, phenomenal, but . that : six 'should do it is— well, very remarkable: while the whole 360 reachin...

THE CAWS STOMACH. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 8 January 1908

THE CALF'S STOMACH. A calf's stomach Is like a cheese vat of milk after the rennet is added. The rennet taken from a calf's stomach co agulates the milk In the cheese vat Just as It coagulates the milk in the calfs stomach. * tevery cheese-maker knows that rennet will not set upon cold milk in^his fh(t-Kt' vat. nplf hpr will It net tin. onvtfce told inllk In the calf's stomach, until the calf lias warmed that milk to a proper temperature. Cold milk causes the calf to shiver, deranges bis digestive machinery, renders him unable to make a thorough, assimilation of his food, and seriously impairs his. future usefulness. -He usually turns out a pot-bellied, bristly-coated runt, when if a little warm milk -could have been put in his pall before feeding he might have turned out a fat, sleek-coated animal.

A BOOtTS OFFICIAL'S TALES. CREDULITY OF COUNTRY SHOP KEEPERS. A peculiar story of how three Notts tradespeople were victimised was told before the Nottingham City magistrates on Saturday, 2nd November, when George Carter, said to be a native of Newcastle-on-Tyne, was placed in the dock. Carter went to a shop at Chilwell, and tola the shopkeeper, Fanny Chariton. tliat he was making a trade report for thn fJni'prnmpnt. He offered to Include the chop in his report on payment of two shillings. The money was handed to him. He then asked for a billhead, wrote something upon It, and obtained the shopkeeper's signature, together with a shilling 'to cover the cost of the Government stamp.' Mrs Cliarlton ad mitted to the bench that she did not read the paper before signing it; she thought it was a report.

BLOCK SIGNALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 8 January 1908

BLOCK SIGNALS. The problem of railway signalling Is likely to be complicated by the evidence given before the Board of Trade Inquiry Into the Hampstead disaster. One ot the witneBBes admitted that he had known cases where the block system of signalling had failed to act properly. This has hitherto been regarded by the general puuim aa tui luiaiuwc *;«,»««??. A railway engineer has explained the reason for the fatlures-to a 'Dally News' representative. 'The block system,' he said, 'Is supposed to work thus. On the line la a treadle, a small electrical signaller in connection with the home signal box. A train passing over this treadle acts It working, and In tine box a disc drops showing that the line into the station Is -clear. Until that disc hai dropped the signalman has no right to release the home signal from ?danger' or 'to let another train into the station.'
