PAPER MADE FROM FISH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874

PAPER MADE FROM PISH. VARIOUS as have been the raw materials pressed into service by manufacturers of paper, the following outdoes them all. M r. P. L. Simmonds, in his recently published book on " Waste Products and Undeveloped Substances, " tells us that in order to utilise fish-fibre for the manufacture of paper, the fish are placed in a bath of diluted sulphuric acid (1 to \\ parts of acid to 100 of water), and kept there till the skins get loose, which happens in a few days when the fish are small. Then the acid water is poured off, and lime water, or rather milk of lime, sub- stituted. This neutralises the remaining acid, and removes all fat or oil by forming an insoluble lime-soap. After some time the lime water, holding the hme soap in sus- pension, is removed, and fresh lime water is added, till all the oil is as completely as pos- sible removed. This may be hastened by properly dividing the mass of fish. After it has been treated sufficiently with lime (for which also the ...

ARTIFICIAL BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874

ARTIFICIAL BUTTER.. DcrjRiNGr tlie scarcity occasioned by the invest- ment of Paris hy the German troops a substi- tute for butter was improvised by an ingeni- ous Frenchman. Necessity was thus the mother of invention by which the occupation of the cow is now threatened in the United States. Butter in which milk or cream has no part is now made by a patented process in New York and Connecticut. At least the stuff is called butter. It is made from the oleine or the liquid part of the suet of cows and oxen slaughtered for beef. After the suet has been chopped up and melted it is pressed, and the oleine is separated from the stéarine. The stéarine is made into candles, but the ultimate use of the oleine is no such light matter. It is churned, colored with annotto, and the product is called but- ter and sold as such. It is not at all to the credit of the general run of - butter makers, that we are forced to say that after tasting this artificial butter that there is a vast quan- tity of...

THE EFFECT OF STRIKES IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874

THE EFFECT OF STRIKES IN ENGLAND. THE vast and efficient organisation of Trades' Unions in England has at last, it appears, forced capitalists to seek protection in com- bination. A society has, during the past month, sprung into existence, known as " the National Federation of Associated Em- ployers of Labour," the avowed object.of which is to defend Capital against the unjust demands of Labour, whether put forward through strikes, or by means of legislation in Parliament. The Council of the Society includes some of the best known and most influential capitalists in the country, aud it is asserted that the masters who have already given in their adherence to the scheme em- ploy 2,000,000 of workmen. A manifesto of the new Association has been issued, which dwells on the influence exercised by Trades' Unions, and the necessity for discovering a means of combating the same. We are told that they have " a command of money, and an imposing aspect bf organisation." " They organise frequ...

A DISEASE-DESTROYING TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874

A DISEASE-DESTROYING TREE. In the Comptes Rendus for October 6, M. Gimbert narrates the success of his experi- ments in improving the miasmatic climate of some parts of Algeria by plantations of EUCALYPTUS GLOBULUS. The tree grows vapidly, and possesses the power of destroy- ing the malarious agency which is supposed to cause fever. It absorbs as much as ten times its weight of water from the soil, and emits camphorous antiseptic vapour from its leaves. The same tree has been tried with success at the Cape of Good Hope. A farm some 20 miles from Algiers was noted for its pestilential air ; in the spring of 1S67 13,000 Eucalyptus were planted there, since which time not a single case of fever has occurred. Numerous other like cases are cited. We presume these statements are substantially correct, although there may be some errors of detail, or interpretation of facts. A simi- lar case is- on record with reference to the Sunflower. The Observatory at Washington, U.S., was placed in a ...

Picture frames would not become tarnished so soon, if they were more frequently, wiped than they usually are, with a soft handker- chief, and the intricacies of their mouldings or carvings dusted carefully with a little brush of floss silk. At certain "bureaus," in Paris, where the omnibuses stop to take up passengers, there stands a man with a bucket of cold water, with which he sponges the noses and mouths of the 'bus horses. We should like to see a similar provision made here for the omnibus horses, during summer, at least. To awaken children from their sleep with a loud noise, or in an impetuous manner, is extremly.injudicious and hurtful ; nor is it proper to carry them from a dark room im- mediately into a glaring light, against a daz- zling wall ; for the sudden impression of light debilitates the organs of vision, and lays the foundation of weak eyes from early infancy. If it be required to separate water from Oil, or to draw off oil from water, a piece of cloth or sponge wi...

HORSE BREEDING FOR HUNTING PURPOSES. Notes by " SCRUTATOR." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874

HORSE BREEDING FOR HUNTING ! PURPOSES. ! Notes by " SCRUTATOR."' . THE treatment of marea before foaling requires particular attention, and, when there is little grass available for the purpose of inducing a good flow of milk, it will be necessary to have recourse to other substi- tutes to produce this effect ; carrots have been objected to by some, but my impression is, that the large white Belgian carrot is an excellent vegetable for horses almost at any time, and is of much milder properties than the common red kind. Swedish turnips, also agree well with horses, who are, likewise, very fond of them ; they should be cut into thin slices, haying previously been well washed. It is needless to comment upon bran mashes, which have always been in such general use ; these may be given every other day, a fortnight before the mare's time of foaling expires, and if some bruised oats are added, they will be more readily eaten. The best way of preparing a bran mash is to pour boiling water u...

STEEDMAN'S SOOTHING POWDERS, FOR CHILDREN CUTTING TEETH. CAUTION TO PURCHASERS. The value of this well known Family Medicine has been largely tested in all parts of the world, and by all grades of society, for upwards of FIFTY YEARS. Its well-earned extensive sale has induced SPUMOUS IMITATIONS, some of which in OUTWARD AP- PEARANCE so closely resemble the original as to have deceived many purchasers. The proprietor, therefore, feels it due to the public to give a special caution against tho use of SUCH IMITATIONS. Purchasers are therefore requested carefully to ob- serve the four following distinctive characteristics, without which none are genuine : 1st.-In every case the words JOHN STEEDMAN, CHEMIST, "WALWORTH, SURREY, are engraved on the Government Stamp affixed to EACH PACKET 2nd.-Each SINGLE POWDER has directions for the dose, and the words, John Steedmau, Chemist, Walworth, Surrey, printed thereon. 3rd.-Tho name Steedmau is always spelt with two Es. 4th.-The manufacture is ca...

ARRIVAL OF THE HON. Si SAMUEL. The Hon. Saul Samuel was presented with a splendidly illuminated address on his return from England by the officers and em- ployees of the Sydney Post Office. The hon. gentleman visited his wool-scouring estab- lishment at Collingwood, on the 20th ult. and was received by a large number of Liverpool residents, who had erected a tri- umphal arch and decorated the line of march with flags and flowers. After the ceremony of reception, Mr. Samuels invited the whole of hie workpeople and the visitors present to a banquet, which passed off splendidly. It is contemplated shortly to inaugurate the return ol Mr, Samuel and the successful ! completion of his postal negotiations by some suitable demonstration in the new Post Office building.

Shifts and Contribances AVAILABLE IN WILD COUNTRIES. HUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874

Wölfis; anö Contn'banceö AVAILABLE IN WILD COUNTRIES. BY FRANCIS GALTON, F.R.G.S. HUTS. In making a dépôt, it is usual to build a house ; often the men have to pass weeks in inactivity, and they may as well spend them in making their quarters comfortable, as in idleness. Whatever huts the natives live in are sure, if made with extra care, to be suf- ficient for travellers. Walls.-The materials whence the walls of huts may be constructed are very numerous, and there is hardly any place which does not furnish one or other of them. Those prin- cipally in use are as follow. Expiation of such of them as require it is subjoined : Skins, canvas, felt, tarpaulin, bark, reed mats, reed walls, straw walls, wattle and dab, palisades, log huts, fascines or faggots ; boards, &c, fastened by Malay-hitch ; brick, sunburnt or baked, turf, stones, gabions, hags or mats filled with sand or shingle ; snow huts ; underground huts, tents over holes in earth. Hoofs.-Many of the above list would b...

THE WILLIAMSTOWN GRAVING DOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874

THE WILLIAMSTOWN GRAVING DOCK. OUR engraving on page 16 re- presents the successful floating of Her Majesty's training ship " Nelson" into the Alfred Grav- ing Dock at Williamstown (Mel- bourne) on the 2nd March last.. Although this operation was really the celebration of tho completion of ono of tho most important public works eyer undertaken in Victoria, there was not the slightest cere- mony. Thc Nelson was taken in without any display, and the pumps were at once set to work to clear the water out of the dock. Several members of thc Ministry attended and watched the proceedings with interest. There was not a large attendance of the general public, and beyond the display of a little bunting at some of the shops, tho residents of Williamstown appeared to take but little interest in what was going on. From the time the Nelson left her moorings in front of the steam tugs Warhawk and Resolute until she was in position at the head of the dock scarcely an hour elapsed. As soon as suffic...

AGRICULTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874

. AGRICULTURAL. Mr. Hurtle Fisher has bought Maribyrnong station and stock for £30,000. At the Normanby Range, Queensland, sheep are bringing £2 per head: Som e slipstone peaches gathered this season in Dr. Creed's garden, Scone, weighed sixteen ounces each. Wheat averages from 5s. 3d. to 5s. 9d. per bushel in New Zealand. In Adelaide the market is firm at 6s. ld. The Dubbo Pastoral Society has received £214 163. 6d. out of the £3000 voted by Parliament in aid of such associations. About Goulburn the prospects of farmers have scarcely, if ever, been so good. Grass is plentiful, and stock consequently in good condition. * At Mr. Chisholm's Wollongong stock sale, the bulls averaged 56 guineas, heifers 20 guineas ; the bull calves brought from 10 to 30 guineas. Baron Mueller states that the best time for cutting thistles, so as to prevent them germinating, is when the plant is just running into flower. Farmers at Bega have received an offer of £2 per ton for constalks, which are there ...

VETERINARY. BLOOD POISONING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874

VETERINARY. BLOOD POISONING. PROFESSOR SIMONDS thus reports on some remarkable cases of blood poisoning in cattle and sheep which occurred recently in the Western Counties of England : In the first case, some sheep died from blood poisoning as far back as last August. The carcases were skinned and opened in a field adjacent to the premises, and a con- siderable portion of the flesh, which was pre- served for the dogs, was subsequently eaten in the same pasture. In close proximity to this field, and also to the farmstead, is a pond of stagnant water, which receives the drainage of the stables and yards, and also the surface ^vvater from the field in question. Eleven horses were on the farm at this time, and on August 23rd a four-year-old, which was at pasture in the field already mentioned was taken suddenly ill, aud died in about twenty-four hours. The carcase was opened in the straw-yard, about ten yards from the pond, and the viscera were buried in close proximity to it. On Octobe...

OPEN FARMYARDS AND LUNG DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874

OPEN FARMYARDS AND LUNG DISEASE. MR. J. J. Meehi, the great experimental farmer, of Tiptree Hall, England, says : I have a very strong conviction that open yards are the frequent cause of lung disease. Being exposed to the rainfall, large quanti- ties of straw are thrown down to absorb the water, and make a dry bed for the cattle, but I observe that when a bullock gets up a small cloud of steam arises from the spot he has left, and that also steam comes from the under part of his body. This proves that his weight has caused the water to rise | up under him through the straw, and that he has been lying on a heated wet bed instead of a dry one. I know of many cases of .pleuro from open farmyards, but I do not hear of any in covered and enclosed yards, for there, if scantily and properly littered, the urine and excretion are trodden into a solid paste, and there is no heat, fermenta- tion, or smell. It is the ráin water that in the open yards causes the mischief. All the years I have h...

HORTICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier — 28 March 1874

HORTICULTURE. WE have little fear that, so far as practical horticulture is concerned, English gardeners shall be distanced in the race by foreign com- petitors ; but practical horticulture by itself is not progressive. A man maybe a thoroughly good practical gardener, and yet be no better than his father before him. The con- sequence of this is that he is really worse. The father was abreast of the times in which he lived, the son is ouly abreast of the last generation. When we remembei", too, what rapid pro- i gress is being made in all branches of know- ledge relating to plant-culture, what increased acquaintance with distant climates and their products is now obtained, how great the accumulation of wealth, and how wide the diffusion of education and taste, it is clear j that a man who thinks that he is only stand- ing still is in reality retrograding ; or, as the French proverb pithily puts it, Qui s'arrête recule. The only occasion when a gardener, with his faculties in full pl...
