THE COLD BATH. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

THE COLD BATH. If you do not feel warm after a cold bath you had better not lake it, for it is doing you no good. We do not take cold baths for the sake of cleanliness; cold water may wash off the superfi cial dirt, 'but it does not extract the dirt from the pores. We plunge into cold water solely for its invigorating etfect, and unless we get that invig orating effect from it we had better seek the invigoration in some other way. Cold water applied suddenly drives the blood from the skin by constrict ing the capillaries. It also adminis ters a light shock to the nerves, which has an awakening effect upon all the muscles of the 'body. The capillar ies being closed, the resistance of the blood to the heart pressure is greater. The heart responds to this resistance by greater effort; it beats more rapid ly and with stronger force. The blood surges through the body more swift ly, and forces its way through the capillaries as soon as the cold that has closed them is withdrawn. This caus...

SECRETS THAT BAFFLE CHEMISTS. WAYS IN WHICH MILLIONS MAY BR MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

SECRETS THAT BAFFLE CHEMISTS. « WAYS IN WHICH MILLIONS MAY BR MADE. Tt was announced recently that a distinguished chemist of Hie Im perial Technical Schoo} of Moscow hud solved the problem of making artificial rubber, and that he could sell tho new product at about Is. 4d. a pound. Vet, in spite of this ' widely dis seminated piece of news, the price of rubber remains pretty much the same. Tho reason may bo found by., examining the Patent Odico re cords. Paring the past ten or twelve years nearly 300 patents for artificial rubber have been taken out. Substitutes have been made from petroleum, from coal tar, turpen tine, peat, from nitrated linseed oil, and by treating cereals with pliyalin. . ( ■ The latter invention made a con siderable sensation so long ago an 1000 yet', judging by the con Ktantly-ir.crcasing demand upon tho real rubber market. The chemist, working in his labo ratory, can take any substance and analyze it—that is, break it up in to its original constituents and t...

Preserving Eggs with Gases for a Year. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

Preserving Eggs with Gases for a Yoar. Trench scientists have discovered a new method of preserving eggs, which, they declare, .will keep the eggs untainted and of the same deli cate colour of the albumen for ten mouths. This method consists for the main part of the use of car bonic gas and compressed nitro gen. The manner in which tho work is done seems as though it were alto gether too much trouble and too expensive, but it is claimed that the extra expense comes to no more than one shilling and eightponco per thousand eggs. Tho eggs are placed in a tin caso holding fivo hundred each, and these cases are in wooden frames to enable them to be set in cold stor nge. First n little chlorato of lime is used to absorb the moisture ; then the cover is soldered on, leav ing a- quarter of an inch hole. A vacuum Is next produced, thereby removing all the air surrounding tho eggs, and the gasses dissolved in their albumen. Next, heated carbonic gas is in troduced, a vacuum pump then re moves...

Fish that Destroy Mosquitoes. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

Ffsh that Destroy Mos quitoes. _ .t Following upon the widespread use of the system of covering small stagnant pools with oil, so that the larva of the mosquito cannot develop into the adult insect is the discovery that larger bodies 01" water may be made similarly harm ful by. stocking them with a small flah which feeds by preference al most entirely on mosquito larvae. To other fish, the early swimming stages of the mosquito aro merely an ordinary part of the day's food, but to this little benefactor of mankind—known as "millions"—a larva is a tit-bit of the first dimen sions, and is said to be sought with avidity. This discovery, made some little time ago in Bavbudoes, resulted in the transhipment of several tanks full of those fish to Jamaica and • British Guiunn, under the super vision and direction of the Medical Service of the British Army. Ile | ports from the localities to which these fish were sent show a mar [ vellous decrease in the yellow1 fever and malaria conditions, ...

Both Done. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

Both Done. A married couple were frequently in disagreement on the subject of meals, each usually suggesting a dish for the Sunday dinner which the oth er did not approve. One Saturday the man came home from market wiili a basket. "You needn't worry about to-mor row's dinner any more, Maria; I've got it." "And so have I, George! You were so undecided." "Undecided! I told you what I wanted." "Well, I mean you didn't decide as I did. So I bought a goose." "Why, so have I! I told you I'd like a goose." "Well, now we are agreed for. once, anyhow." "Yes; and I suppose we'll have cold goose and stew for the next fort night!" They relapsed into their usual si lence. "Do you want a few cloves in the apple sauce with your goose?" the wife asked 011 Sunday morning. "Your goose, you mean." "No, I don't! It seemed so absurd to have two geese in the house, that I sent mine to Aunt Jane." "What! Why, I sent mine to Uncle Joe!" To straighten their hats is the first impulse of feminine humanity aft...

DAIRYING. POINTS IN CHEESE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

DAIRYING. t ■ ■ ' 1 POINTS IN CHEESE-MAKING. For hard-pressed cheese, where a ripe milk is required, it is best to use ' night and morning's milk mixed. In the case of making cheese from sweet milk, such as some varieties of im pressed cheese, it is often most satis factory to use one meal's milk only. I The rennet must be very carefully [ added to milk that is overripe, as the acidity in the milk stimulates the ac tion of the rennet, making it work very quickly. Unless great care is exercised, the milk will be over-stir red and rendered useless for cheese making. It is most important that the curd be of uniform consistence throughout, and this is obtained by judiciously stirring in the rennet and taking pre cautions to prevent the temperature of the renneted milk falling. ■ Keep the vat covered, and water a little warmer than the milk in the vat jacket. Whey from cheese making may be set in tanks, and the cream skimmed off the next day, before using the whey for pig-feeding. Whey c...

TO GIRLS WHO FAIL TO PLEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

TO GIRLS WHO FAIL TO PLEASE. To girls who, for some undefined reason, fail to please in a general way, though here and there they may gain a friend, an admirer, a lover, and who would like to feel a conscious power to attract a certainty of social success at any time or place, there is this to be said. To begin with, a soft voice and a quiet manner are desirable; sympathy is not easily expressed in boisterous tones or a bustling-mannered demean or. Given these, there are few precepts to remember. Do not ask a series of deliberate questions, but try to ascertain what subject interests your partner in con versation, and if you know little or nothing of it, be sure that an intelli gent listener is always appreciated. Even the dullest-seeming man, the most raw youth, has some coign of vantage where he feels at home; and if you lead him to talk of this, and you demonstrate the fact that he in terests you, you increase his self-re spect, you convey a pleasant tingle of self-satisfaction, ...

GIRLS' HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

GIRLS' HAIR. The care of a girl's hair during her childhood has much to do with its later beauty. With the exception of an occasional clipping or singeing of the ends where a tendency to split is noticeable, the growth of the liair should not be interfered with. The old idea that it ought to be cut short in childhood is not now entertained, except in special cases. It is unwise to trust the daily comb ing of a little girl's hair entirely to the nurse, certainly not without fre quent overlooking. Hasty combing injures the hair by breaking it. It should be carefully brushed out, the hair being separated into strands if it shows a tendency to mat. If the comb, at the end of the operation, has gathered a considerable amount of knots and snarls and long hairs, the method has not oeen proper. It is possible to brush out a tangle of locks and scarcely lose a hair, but it takes care and patience. It is also unwise to wash the hair too often, as it makes it dry and brit tle. Profuse perspira...

VENTILATION IN FOWL HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 23 May 1914

VENTILATION IN FOWL HOUSES. Open your bedroom windows wide, or sleep out on the verandah, and you wake up in the morning feeling like a fighting-cock. You have had ventila tion. Open your window an inch and your door an inch, and morning will find you sniffling like an old nag with the heaves. A draught is a thin stream of cold air sneaking in through a warmer body of air without mixing. Ventilation is a body of air that, how ever cold, comes in a hunch, and has volume enough to regulate its own temperature. You might thinlc of these tilings in regard to your lien house, for a tow. is more susceptible to a draught than any living thing. A fowl's body is a regular little en gine. Did you know that fowls don't sweat? You didn't! Why, they have no sweat glands. A fowl's natural temperature is away above the fever heat o. all other living creatures, and that makes a draught of air their death warrant.
