WOOL SALES. MELBOURNE, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 12 January 1900
WOOL SALES. MELBOURNE, Thursday. The wool sales were continued to-day, when the New Zealand Loan and Mercantile Agency Company brought forward a catalogue which, considering the lateness of &nbsp; the season, was large and decidedly attractive and contained many good clips. &nbsp; For both Merino and scoured competition was very active, but the irregularity of prices already referred to was again noticeable. Owners, however, were not prepared to accept prices lower than those previously ruling. Indeed, in some cases their limits were higher than the prices paid at the best point of the season. The result, therefore, was large withdrawals, which, however, were not so large &nbsp; today as expected.

LARGE AND SMALL POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
LARGE AND SMYLALL POTATOES. To test the relative merits of large, small, and medium-sized Dotatoes as seed, an interesting experiment has been in progress for some years at the Canadian Agricultural. College, near Guelph, in Ontario. In the carrying out of this experiment a number of plots were first sown with "sets" of different sizes: large, mddium-sized, and small. The potatoes obtained from these plots were then planted sepa rately the following year, and this course was continued for four years 1.895 to 1898. In the result it was found that, without exception, the largest potatoes always produced the largest yield of tubers. More than this, it was found that as the size of the seed 'diminished, the resulting yield de creased at a corresponding rate. Not alone was the field of potatoes from the large-sized sets greater than from other plots; but the percentage of marketable tubers was also considerably greater. Last year, for instance, it was found that While 75 per cent. of the...
"STINKING" SMUT. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
"STINKING" SMUT. In treating stinking smut of wheat, the grain should he first thrown into a vessel filled with cold water, then, after stirring well, skim off the smutted Brains that float on the top, and put the grain into the basket or other vessel for treatment with hot water. Now f?r! the basket of seed in the first vessel containing water at lO0deg. to 120deg. F'ahr.; after a moment lift it, and when the water has for the most part escaped, plunge it into the water again, repeat ing the operation severol times. The object -f the lifting and plu.ging, to which should be added a rotary m1o lion, is to bring varay grain in con tact with the hot water. Less than a minute is required for this preparatory treatment, after which plunge the basket of seed into :he second vessel containing water at 132ladg. to 13,deg. Fahr. If the therm meter indicates that the temperatu~e of the water is falling, pour in hot water from the kettle of boiling water until lhe right degree is maintained. ...
THE PREVENTION OF SMUT IN WHEAT AND OATS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
THE PREVENNTION OF SMUT IN WHEAT AND OATS. The Jensen system of prevention has proved successful in America, and as year after year smut infesture of grain entails serious losses upon farmers, the following summary of instructions is sued in the "Year Book" of the United States Department of Agriculture for observance in the hot water treatment of seed grain is submitted: for con sid'eration:-"Provide two large vessels, preferably holding at least 20 gallons. Two wash kettles, wash boilers, tubs, or even barrels will do. One of the vessels should contain warm water, say at 110deg. to 120deg., Fahr. The i;rst is for the purpose of warming the seed preparatory to dipping it into the eacond. Unless this precaution is taken it will be dillicult to. keep the water in the second vessel at the proper tem perature. A pail of cold water should bel at hand, and, it is also necessary to have a kettle of boiling water from which to add from time to time to keep the temperature. right. Where ket...
FIGHTING CATERPILLARS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
FIGHTING CATERPILLARS. Mr. Thomas Patterson, secretary of the Royal Agricultural Society of Vic toria, 'has furnished to the Melbourne press a copy of an old letter which contains some very useful hints on the habits of caterpillars, and the best means to destroy the species Which at tacks cereal crops. The letter was written by Mr. G. B. Elliott, of Mus grove, Tasmania, and is dated February 27, 1867. The writer says that the caterpillars, after feeding all night on the grain, as the sun rises, if the sky is clear, go down on the ground, and travel towards the sun-that is, easterly at first, and gradually edging round to wards the north; this is their course until about 2 o'clock p.m., when they return back towards the west, seeking food. In the morning, when they are gorged, and the sun is hot, they move along in any groove that presents itself near their course.' Such being the habits of the caterpillars, the plan to destroy them is as follows:-Take a narrow one-horse plough, and...
FARM AND STATION NOTES. WEATHER AND COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
FARM A?1I) STA'I1.ON NOTES. WEATHEER AND COUNTRY. The crops in tlh north promised fairly well uIl to the end of 1899, but I regret to hear from many of the chief cereal growing districts that the aver ages are likely to be much below ex pectatiQns. The majority of the wheat crops are very much lighter. The oats are not filling well, while the English barley has suil'ered severely, and hay is light. It is too early, to pronounce an opinion on the root prospect, but potatoes in many places are backward. Soime say that the coming crop will be 30 per cent. bel6w last year's in cereals and hay. The recent rains have brightened up the potatoes, and done good generally.

TELEGRAPHING PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
TELEGRAPHING PICTURES. Telediagraph, is the name given to the apparatus invented by H. A. Hum mell, of St. Paul, Minn., for the: telo graphing of pictures. The picture to be sent is first dlrawn on.tinfoil with a certain kind of ink which will not easily blur by rubbing. The foil is then wrapped around ?a cylinder in the sending machine, similiar to tile wax cylinder of a phonograph. A.t the receiving end is a similar device ar ranged to work synchronously with the sending apparatus, but instead of tin foil a sheet of carbon or manifold paper is placed- between two blank" sheets of apemr. In the sender a needle or platinum point is made to trace its way over the surface of the tinfoil, automatically moving down the cylin der a certain distance on the comple tion of each revolution. As this needle comes in contact with the ink lines it is thereby raised from the metallic surface, and the circuit is broken. At the receiving end a corresponding needle reproduces the pulsan ions of the ...

A POSITIVE AND SURE REMEDY FOR ALL KIDNEY DISEASES. A NOBLE WORK FOR HUMANITY, AND A WORK TIPAT WILL ALWAYS COMMAND SUCCESS. GREATLY INCREASING POPULAR ITY OF A MERITORIOUS, CURA TIVE, EFFECTUAL, SIMPLE, SCIENTIFIC REMEDY. SCIATICA, ACCOMPANIED BY TER RIBLE AGONY, CURED BY DODD'S KIDNFY PILLS. "Last August I was seized with sciatica. A fearful pain suddenly struck me in the right hip, and for several minutes I could not move, the agony being terrible. Up to a fortnight ago the attacks recurred, and I was an old, broken down man.' I tried lini ments and medicines, but they did me no good. "Learning that the disease originated from the kidneys, I was advised to try a course of Dodd's Kidney Pills, and did so. I have only taken two boxes, yet I am proud to say the sci atica has vanished, and my general health become robust. I am glad to give you this testimony. "JAMES JOSEPHS. "99 York-street, South Melbourne." Dodd's Kidney Pills always cure sciatica.
PRESERVATIVES IN MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
PRESERVATIVES IN MILK. In a recent paper, Dr. A. G. Young, of Maine, said that the results of his examinations of all the available printed and other reports regarding the action of formaldehyde seemed. 'to jus tify the following conclusions:-1. 'IPhat, used as a preservative, it tended at least to impair the nutritive value of milk. 2. Its tendenlcy was also to interfere with the digestive processes. In either case it was only a question of dosage, and the limit. of safety was diflfcult to determine. . . That though the Inhalation of formaldehyd'o gas was much less dangerous than. the lweatbh ing of the other gaseous agents much used as disinfectants, the results of tests upon animals, and of one case of accidental poisoning of a human b) ing, indicated! that formaldehyde taken into the digestive system might produce 'dangerous alnd even fatal results. 4. It would he unwise and? unsafe to en courago or to suffer the use of formal dehyde in the public milk supply, even under any pos...
PIGS AND SCARLET FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
PIGS AND SCARLETl' IEVER. :Dr. H. 0. Halal, in an article in the "Medical, Recordi," .refers to a vey'ort of a case in wihich some pigs belonging to a peasant in, whoset family there woro several cases of scarlatina, had doA veloped a? scarlet rash, whose int.imato relationship with. the infantile diseaso had been proved by inoculation. He suggests that it wa.s more likely that the disease was communicated to both the children. and pigs through :the me dium of milk from diseased cows than that the pigs obtained the (tisea.s fronm the infected children. 'He points out that in Japan, where milk is not used for food, scarlet fever is almost on: tirely absent. In that country mothers are compelled by stress of circum stances to suckle the babes themselves; the childiren are suckled until their. sixth yoa.r, and as a consequence do not suffer from rickets. This is cited as one of the "b'neficia.l consequences of the absence of milk in .Japan." We wonder to what absurdity faddists will ne...
SCIENCE AND HEALTH. WOMEN AND FRESH AIR. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
SCIENCE AND HEALTH. WOMIIN AND FRIESH AIR. Women as they grow older are apt to live much indoors. I believe the fat flabby, paunchy woman, whether purple or pale, with feeble, irritable heart and "inadequate" kilneys, is usually the victim of rehreathed air. It must, I think, says a medical authority, sooner or later be recognisedl that many of the, increasing ills .which it has been the fashion to chairge on th.e "hurry 'and brain fag," incidental to the high state of civilisatlon, and the large popula tion, are in. reality due to the greater. conitamrinatioin of the air we breathe by the waste products of tihat popu lation, and that poisons excreted by,, the lungs will in time take high rank among those. If this should come to pass, the present ideas anent venti lation must be abandoned as utterly futile, and the needi will be felt,. not otfletting a little air in, but of lelting wasto products out..
THE LAW OF SPIES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 13 January 1900
TIE LAW OF SPIES. The "Law. Journal" continues its in teresting notices on the laws of war. Last month it treated of spies. As eyeryone knows, a spy, if found in an enemy's camp, is liable to be shot, but it will be news to some that he may be shot without trial or court-martial. In the Franco-German war an attempt was made to extend this rule to prisoners captured in balloons, but iN 1874 it was decided that balloonists were not spies, as the great element of con cealment was absent. The rules go verning the treatment of spies are only a survival of the! general rule- by which all prisoners were liable to be shot, and if not shot they might be sold as slaves. Now prisoners must be returned, as soon as the war is over. This rule, however, does not apply to prisoners not in uniform, and the German Go vernment enforced their rights of shooting sharpshooters in the war with France.
