The diameter of tho wheel is about 13ft.; it is built lik® a bicycle wheel, and bears on one sido a metallic fac ing Joined to the axlo by eight gir ders of iron ; oh the facing is fixed a track composed of small wooden bars, giving more "grip" to the tyres.

To .illustrate how a test is made, let it be supposed that a man has a dairy of ten cows, and suspects that four of the animals are "robbers," and -.wishes*.to .find out what they arc giving, in money value. The es sentials needed for carrying out the. test arc &<.centrifugal machine re volving at a high speod whereby the bottle containing the milk can be whirled, and a .few-pimple-pieces of glassware.

HINTS ON PIG FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 19 June 1914

HINTS ON PIG FEEDING. j It is reported from England that a farmer owning a nunjbpr of; pig.s was in the habit of feeding them. with the ' kitchen refuse, from a restaurant,. to I which he added barlej meal and . molasses to llavour the food; As an I experiment he omitted the molasses which the pigs liked very much, an:l. j then found that the excrements of the ; animals contained pieces of undigest ed food, and that the animals, bu ! came iinicky in eating. When he aguin '? added the molasses these symptoms j disappeared ; the pigs ate greedily, and the. food was quite, digest©.;. I Salt is another substance that adds to the flavour of many foods, making them more appetising and therefore more digestible. When cooked p. tat toos arc fed to pigs, salt should al* j w/iys be. added, and every farmer I knows that a little salt mixed with hajs that is not quite as fresh, it might be, is a great improvement. It is said to be a fact that tho pigs of large litters are usually more uniform i...

This amazing "Btate of coldnoss has boon produced by Professor ICamcr ling Onnes, at his laboratory In tho .University of Leyden, Holland. One of tho interesting results of this er . periment has hecn to prove that life is not extinguished by this de cree of cold.

According to this theory, :lifo has been carried from star to rstar and from planot to planet through space, Iq the form of mi* .."croscopic germs driven by the power of light. The objection Itn '.mediately offered to this theory was that the absolute zero of space, would he fatal to tho germs. This . objection is now disposed of.
