THE DAIRY MILK PRODUCTION. QUANTITY AND QUALITY—EXHAUSTIVE INVESTIGATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914
THE DAIRY MILK PRODUCTION. QUANTITY AND QUALITY-EX HAUSTIVE INVESTIGATIONS. A great deal has been heard of late of various phases of the question of the milk standard and the basic causes of the variations in the qua lity of milk. A very exhaustive con tribution to this subject is contained in a book on "Feeding of Crops and Stock,", by Dr. A. D. Hall, director of the famous Rothamsted Agricul tural Experiment Station in Eng land, which has been in existence since 1843. This able work contains a chapter on "Milk, Butter, and Cheese," which deals with a great many questions connected with the production of milk, butter, and cheese, and the results of the experi ments in the variations in composi tion of milk are particularly inter esting. AVERAGE COMPOSITION OF MILK As a result of about 200,000 an alyses, the average composition of milk, for instance, was found to be: -Fat, 3.9 per cent. ; protein, 3.5; lactose, 4.75 ; ash, .75 ; and water, 87.1. In any large number of an alyses this...

PUBAICATIQNS. War Puzzles Mlade Plain. To the reader who likes an answer to the queries that arise daily from the war niews we strongly recommend the four sixpenny numbers of 'Life's War Guide.' The third and fourth numbers, just to hand, complete the set of these excellent war booklet. The idea behind ILife's War Guide' was to answer, in four sixpenny book, lets, a thousand or more war queries, and this has been effectively accom plished. In addition to making ' Life's War Guide' a compact and low-priced en-. cyclopaedia of the war, each number contains a brilliant article by Dr Pit ciiett, and several special articles. The firebell rang out last Satur day night shortly after midnight, several members turning out in quick time, to ,find that it was only a false alarm, much to their dis g.ust at. being called out by these persons, whose -niames :are known and ought to be ashamed of' them selves. These Were not boys, but men in Government employ. It may be mentioned that ringing the:...
A QUESTION OF COW VALUES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914
A QUESTION OF. COW VALUES. Fortunate indeed is the dairyman who owns a good cow and knows it. Likewise fortunate is he who owns a poor one and knows it and has sense enough to send her to the block ra ther than sell her to his brother dairyman for a boarder. The good cow of the real dairyman have records and usually are not for sale. It is the dairyman who consi ders it too much bother to make a record who needs to learn something about cow values. Is it not true that more times than one we have. owned cows which we thought were gust ordinary indivi duals and which we were induced by the dealer to sell at a low price, but later we had discovered -that we sold the "goose that laid the golden egg" ? Then again, have we not owned cows which because of their large milk flow at freshening -time we have held on to with the tenacity of a bull dog, but which always stands dry a good while ? The individual record sheet will reveal some aston ishing facts about the performance of these two ty...
THE DOG NUISANCE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914
THE DOG NUISANCE. To the Editor. Sir;-Why don't our City fathers awake to'the fact' that the dog nuisance requires suppressing ? They framed a bylaw pro hibiting wandering cattle (which do not endanger life), why don't they pass a bylaw prohibiting dogs wandering the streets? This week I have seen two very narrow escapes through the mongrels rushing out and snapping at the heels of horses. In one case the rider was thrown off. the horse he was riding, and in the other a bicycle rider was thrown, both falling heavily; and not many days ago the same thing happened to the rider of a motor cycle. In nearly every case the dogs have been led by a large Collie. This brute is continually in the street, and every horse that comes along rushes out to attack it. Surely the owner could be prosecuted for allowing such a pest in the streets. Not only are the dogs a nuisance in frightening horses, but cause serious loss every year by damag ing goods. I have seen dogs about shops rnbbing against ea...
THE GARDEN. ROSE MILDEW. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914
THE GARDEN. ROSE MILDEW. The New South Wales Bureau ?" Microbiology states that rose mil dew is caused by a fungus, Sphaero theca. It attacks the leaves, young shoots, and flower buds, often curl ing the leaves. On the shoots, calyx, and fruit the fungus forms thick, felty .patches that persist late into Sthe season, and here produces the small black bodies containing. the spores to carry it over till the next year. Sometimes the disease occurs in two stages - the first after the leaves are formed, and the second when the young wood has made. growth and the flowers have com menced to appear. This is the criti cal period and the fungus prepares to carry over the winter. Dusting with flowers of sulphur mixed with one third of its volume of lime checks the disease. Spraying with sulphuric acid, one part in 1500 of water, is one of the best remedies. Care must be taken in miring or diluting sul phuric acid. Put the water into an earthenware or wooden vessel, pour the acid in slowly down...
CALVES AND TUBERCULOSIS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914
CALVES AND TUBERCULOSIS. Every one connected with farming is now very keen on the subject of fighting tuberculosis among our herds. It .is pointed out, however, in a contemporary, that most of us are working from the wrong end altoge ther. We are treating animals after they are attacked, and proposing to_ have them examined and slaughtered, whereas nothing is done at the other end, as it were, to breed animals free of tuberculosis. It is well enough known now that a calf from a tuber culous cow may be perfectly, healthy, and nearly always is to start with, and if we feed it on healthy milk, and keep it away from tainted sur roundings, in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred it would grow up a good and healthy animal. The whole point, therefore, empha sises the fact that we should set about rearing our calves under proper conditions, and that we might in a short time bring forward herds which would be absolutely sound to begin with, and these would take the place of others more or less...

The celebrations were concluded on Monday evening, when a con cert was held and proved a suc ...

New. Breakwaters rhe new breakwater at. the end of- the first bridge' approaching Swan Island, is completed. This has been a requirement for a long time, as it was not safe when a high tide was running. It may be remembered how residents in that vicifiity' ivere flooded out about three years ago when the water rose as far as Wharf st, flooding the residences at that end of the ,street and doing a deal of damage.

AN AWFUL NIGHT IN AN ALPINE PASS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914
AN AWFUL NIGHT IN AN ALPINE PASS. How a mountaineering party lost its way in an Alpine snow storm, after a guide had first collapsed and then become delirious, and how it spent a night without food in a hole hewn out of the frozen. snow is vividly described by Mr. ill-iot Stock in, the August number of "Travel and Exploratioh." "What's to be done, Hans ?" asked Mr. Stock when they knew they were lost; '" we can't stop here. We shall be frozen solid in a few hours." "We. have tao, Herr," replie the guide, soberly.. "We must wait, al ways wait. We cannot xmove if we cannot see." They roughly hewed a small cave out of the snow on. the mountain side and crept in. How the night passed is described as follows.: "We. must all have dozed', to be awakened roughly by one another at intervals . for it would- have been fatal to have slept outright in. thai intense cold:. We were kept awake, too, by our patient's delirious state. At odd moments: he would 'spring into. a sitting position, shout a...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914
IT willbe observed that the coun_ cil is pioceeding as expeditibusly as possible in officially defining the parts of the beaches that bathing can. be indulged in with safety, This has been a long-felt want, and we are sure the visiting public will be thankful to the council for their action. Seasori after season has come and gone and beach bathers have 'run great risk of danger; indeed, many have paid the penalty of intrepidity by loss of life. Even last season several persons were rescued at, great risk to the rescuer. The dan gerous spots for bathing is well known to the resident, and it is in these especial parts the council will forbid bathing. The bylaw enfore ing the council to set aside safe parts for bathing is now .under way, -and before the season has properly begun there will be notices posted forbiddiing persons• bathing at particular parts, and generally setting forth the conditions of bath ing in the spots determined upon. There will be strict observance of decency,.so...
EYEBROWS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914
EYEBROWS. Eye-brows that are lighter in col our than the hair are usually a sign of weak constitution, but eye-brows darker than the hair generally go with a vigorous mind and body, more especially when they are bu3hy and tufted. As a general rule the closer the eyebrows lie to the eyes, the greater are the powers of concentration, though sometimes such brows are as sociated with a. suspicious nature. Well-arched eyebrows are a sign of artistic, agreeable temperament, but when they lie far away from the eyes the owner is often most unreliable. If the eyebrows, instead of droop ing at the end, turn upwards to wards the temples, their possessor is likely to have a strong sense of hu mour, and is likely to make a name as a comedian, or as a humorous artist or writer. From time immemorial, eyebrows that meet across the nose have been associated with a passionate and even a murderous temperament. Persons with little or no eyebrows are almost invariably not only weak in body, but weak in ...
COMPLETE SHORT STORY. THE FATE OF GENERAL VALIXTO. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914
COMPLETE SHORT STORY. THE FATE OF GENERAL VALIXTO. General Valixto sat in his room, busy with his papers. There were stirring times ahead, for within twenty-four hours the insurgents un der his and Gen. Palmero's command were to make a combined attack on Havana. Already the men were pre paring for the fray, and ever and anon the trampling of horses' feet and the shrill notes of the bugle fill ed the air. One or two unimportant places had already been taken, but thait was a mere bagatelle compared to the capture of Havana. Here the Spaniards were gathered in force, ready to make a determined stahd against the enemy, and General Val ixto realised that the task which lay before him was no light one. He paused in his work for a mo ment, and, taking up a small pack age, tied round with a coloured rib bon, he deftly, undid its folds, and toolo therefrom a small photo. On this he gazed fervently for a moment his naturally bright eyes growing brighter as they scanned the fair features of th...
THE FARM. THE USE OF THE DISC HARROW. HOW TO MAKE A GOOD SEED BED [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914
THE FARM. THE USE OF THE DISC HARROW. HOW TO MAKE A GOOD SEED BED On the best use of the disc harrow, the "Canadian Thresherman" says: What the self-binder means in the province of harvesting, machinery, it is safe to say the disc harrow has become among cultivating tools. Generally speaking, a deep seed bed is an absolute necessity to the pro tection of the crop in a dry season, but it is not expedient to plough deeply on certain soils. If the subsoil is sand or gravel and is very near the surface, ploughing to a depth that will bring that. subsoil to the surface is not to be thought of. It is also known that the humus on new land does not, as a rule, extend to beyond three or four inches below the sur face, that depth should be observed at the outset, but each succeeding year the depth should be increased until the subsoil is eight or ten inches deep. It has been well said that "the seed bed is the plant's larder, and it should be deep and roomy." It is the main feeding iground of...
WATER FOR CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 November 1914
WATER FOR CALVES. The calf that gets a good drink of water every day, no matter if it has all the milk it needs, will do better than one which is deprived ,of this very natural means of quenching its thirst. Permanganate of potash will cleanse dirty, filters of all impurities. A solution should be passed through the filter until it comes out as pink as when it was poured in. Potato Balls.-A nice little supper dish can be made by mashing cold potatoes and rolling them into but ter. Brush over with a little milk, powder with finely-grated bread crumbs, and frS till a golden brown. Serve on an oval dish with tiny sprigs of parsley.
