Though there was no indication of the fact in the official communication, it is generally understood that the transfer means Mr. Murphy's removal from Gee (long permanently.

NEW PROCESS FOR PRESERVING MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 24 January 1914

N i^Y PROCESS' FOR PRESERVING MILK. To thtf already known methods of preserving milk another has been add o.d by two Italian physicians. Their method is to preserve milk by means of an atmosphere of carbonic acid gas, under pressure. The milk remains unaltered tor several days, both in its physical and chemical characters, and in "the biological constituents, the fer ments. Some of the germs- present are killed, while others have their de velopment arrested. Pv this method uncooked milk can be kept for eight or twelve days at a temperature of 12 deg. to l-l deg. C.. while boiled milk is preserved indefinitely. The gas is produced with little or no trouble. The inventors claim for this method a solution of the question of infant feeding. Milk preserved in this manner ought certainly to be eu iierior to milk sterilised by heat, ow ng to the fact that milk can be kept bv this process for a considerable pe riod with all pathogenic germs absent, v-Vilj its biochemical functions remain in...

DEEP PLOUGHING FOR OATS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 24 January 1914

EEP FLOUGKiNG FOR OATS. On the Iron Mountain railroad de monstration farm at Hope, Ark., oat land ploughed four inchcs deep yielded but 23 bushels to the acre, while the same land yielded 77 bushels to the acre. This increaso results from the fact that deep ploughing afforded a better reservoir for soil water, and dry weather did not delay tho growth. In the deeper ploughing a laiger am ount of moisturo came in contact with more soil particles and dissolved more plant food. There was also more space l'or root development, and the larger root development was enabled to se cure more moisture and more plant food.
