SERVIA TO-DAY. AWAKENING TO ECONOMIC NEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 29 January 1908
SERVIA TO-DAY. AWAKENING TO ECONOMIC NEEDS. . The correspondent of the ' WesJr minister,. Gazette' writes in that paper of 11th November : — If only a reasonable modicum of value could be placed upon the re ports current in the Balkans, and which evidently by devious routes reach England, one might expect to find the Servian capital In a state of political unrest of such magnitude as to create international alarm. There is some value yet in the nqsmoke without-Gre theory ; hence, attracted by the smoke, I hoped to discover the fire. Instead of turbulence, I found a quiet acquiescence, and ob tained no glimpse either of fire or ?smoke. Belgrade is always like this. No city, can be more tautalising to the inquiring man, no city keeps so much in its back parlors. Every time om visits the city now it is to find it dirdcr change ; advance has been 'made — considerable advance — during the last twelve months.

HEALING BY SUGGESTION, HOW A DOCTOR'S BEDSIDE MAN NED HELPS TO OUHE. 'Vis inedicairix naturae,' the medical name for a marvellous healing power which lies Inherent In the human body, was the main subject of a peculiarly in teresting lecture entitled 'The Influence of the Mind on Health,' delivered on tbe 12tu November. What this unconscious healing power oin do was illustrated by the lecturer ' in several stories from his oivn experi ence.

In the waiting room the patient felt that he was going to en- 1 ter into tho presence of a great curative force; and, ?wuen standing before tbe famous doctor himself, this indirect, but ' none tbe less potent, suggestion was doubly strong. . Presently that patient emerged from bis consultation bearing a prescription which was Identical wHli that of the country practitioner, which bad failed to allay his pains. But this one cur...

He had been asked to give some advice, but he could not think that he was very well chosen for that purpose, because he heard a great deal of debate, but oever took part In it HIS ADVICE TO ORATORS. 'The man who could make the best debating speech must have the power of thinking quickly and clearly while on his legs.

BAITING BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 29 January 1908
SALTING BUTTER. The following suggestions in the salt ing of butter have been Issued by tbe Iowa Dairymen's Association, U.S»A.: — No established rule for salting butter properly can be given. The buttermaker will have to be governed entirely by local conditions. The amount ot salt to be Incorporated In the butter depends mrectiy on tne amount of moisture the butter contains. Butter fat is not a salt, dissolving substance. This can be done only by the moisture in the bntter. The first thing, then, to get a uniform amount of dissolved salt in batter Is to get a uniorm amount of moisture. The water should be evenly distributed through the mass of butter. If It is pre sent in pockets or crevices In the butter when the salt is added much salt will be lost in the form of brine; besides, those particles of butter near the poc kets will contain more salt than those farther away. Best results are obtained by allowing the butter to drain well after washing and then applying the salt In no ca...
