THE ART OF MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
THE ART OF MILKING. The art of milking is considered as being on a level with pumping -water, or any other simple work, and yet there are many, points needed to stamp a man as a food milker. Too many children are allowed to attend to this important work and many chronic troubles of cheese and the cheese factory originate right here. A- good experienced milker can soon j tell if there is something wrong with | the udder and milk, and will not al i low such milk to be delivered to the I factory, but what can you expect of a child ? Cleanliness is absolutely ! necessary to success in the factory. .Everybody knows this and yet you can notice cows being milked that have udders covered with dirt, main ly caused - by the swamp-like condi tion of some of the barnyards. I Do the milk utensils always get ' proper care ? Are they properly wash ed with hot water, and kept in pro per places ? Are they used exclusively for their purpose alone? I think ~ not, or else the collection of things of al...

HUf$AN NATURE. TRRCBNTRICRRRES OF THB GREAT. T an interesting- article in the ,.wL York Tribune," entitled "Ec centricities of the Great," Mr. Ed Tarrisse presents a list ot Table people who have shown pe culiarities of one sort or another. Kant the German metaphysician, he says, stands at the bead of the IsS'of tT1*' .?rent ^cM^tricities. 0®e of Kant's hobbies in the art of taking care of himself was to avoid mrters- He permitted no ligature S be placed on any part of his body, fearing to hinder in the slight est 'degree the circulation of the blood.

MATURING CHEESE BY ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
o MATURING CHEESE BY ELECTRI CITY. An industrial electrician of Rotter dam is reported to have discovered a method of giving age to cheese by .' means of electricity. After a long series of experiments, he found that he could take an absolutely fresh cheese and give it all the consis tency, taste, and appearance of a fine cheese that had been stored awaj and carefully aged' for two years. ! He takes a fresh cheese and sub jects it to an alternating current. At the end of twenty-four hours of con stant alternating electrical currents . through this cheese it possesses all the properties of a fine two-year-old cheese, 1 This has naturally aroused great interest in Holland, " where cheese making is one of the big industries, i It is said the electrician claims be can do many other things with cheese I by means of electricity, including an | apparatus that will enable the mmti | facturer. to so gratuate and direct electrical action of this nature as to give cheese any taste desired, and...
THE DAIRY DEHORNING THE DAIRY CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
THE DAIRY A.. DEHORNING THE DAIRY CATTLE* Owners of farm cattle have a mis taken idea of beauty when they think a cow or a bull is more attractive ?with the horns on. For safety's sake, if [or no other reason, the cattle should be dehorned, both to keep them from injuring each other and from doing bodily harm to persons on the farm. Horns have no possible use to any domestic animal and should be removed at an early age. When cattle roamed wild, horns were Nature's provision for defence and guard against enemies. In the gtruggle for existence in the early davs, when cattle in a wild Btate ol nature had to hold their own with other beasts of the fields, horns were a. valuable asset. Now when they are bred for domestic purposes and have nothing from which to defend them selves," the horns have absolutely no use, and a cow should be considered more valuable without them. Animals on which the horns ars left, possess more or less of their former fighting instinct. They often j do much inj...

THE WEST WIMMERA MALL AND NATIMUK ADVERTISER FRIDAY, AUGUST 28 [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
THE WEST WIflERi MAIL A.\O NATLMUK ADVERTISER FRIDAY, AUGUST 28 j This is the last opportunity we have of reminding our Natimuk dis trict readers that the humorous comedy, "Tom, Dick and Harry,*' is to be produced on Thursday eveniDg next. 3rd September. Perhaps it will not be amiss for us to state-though it should not be necessary-that the Mutual Improvement Association is I producing the oomedy for the laudable object of raising money to augment the new building fund. The com mittee of the Mechanics' Institute have long since recognised that the stage and ante-room accommodation was too limited, the successful pro ducation of plays with a fairly num erous cast having being an impossible task in the past The additions which Mr Bousfield will in a day or two complete will make the local hall one of the best appointed outside the cities. It is therefore hoped that the local public will liberally support the effort the Mutual Im provement Association is making. Apart from the aspect o...
OIL FOR LIFEBOATS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
on, FOR LIFEBOATS. Ten lifeboat crews .axe experi menting with a . small oil bag to ascertain -the effect upon rough, shallow water. The minutely perfo rated bag, containing a tin of thick oil-which is smashed by the coxswain-and a wad of oakum, is towed from the weather side of the boat, and is designed to moderate breaking, following seas. These latter are always a menace to the .safety of a lifeboat, and hitherto the view has been generally held .that oil, although an effective agent in deep water, was of no avail -against them. The quantity of oil varies from a gallon to half a ? gallon, according to the size of the boat. Recently the device was tested at .Worthing' in exceedingly rough wea ther, and it has been reported to the National .Lifeboat Institution, which issued the frags, that the tests are regarded as satisfactory.

WIVES WON BY PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 28 August 1914
WIVES WON BY PICTURES. The circumstance leading up to the wedding' between a. wealthy American and. a pretty girl whose face he first saw and admired on a canvas in the Academy, have been frequently paralleled in the past. Perhaps the most romantic case in point was that which w"as associa ted the name of the late Mr. Wil liam Henry Hunt. One day this talented artist discovered a rustic village beauty, and proceeded to uti lise hsr face as a model for one of his gloriously brilliant water colour picture-portraits. After it was finished he sold it, and at the purchaser's earnest request, divulge-1 the identity c«C the model. The girl was sought out by the buyer, who found her as intelligent as she was beautiful. 'He had her educated, and in due course led her to the altar, the marriage turning out a most happy one. Mr. G. A. Story's well-known picture "Mistress Dorothy" was also responsible for a similar ro mance.
