CHEESE EXPERIMENTS. j I should like to call attention to some cheese experiments which have recently been carried out at the Kil ' marnock Dairy School on the mak ing of cheese from different qualities of milk (writes Mr. Primrose Mc Connell in the "Dairy" London). The experiments were for the purpose of testing what proportion of cheese conld be got from milk containing varying quantities of cream, and it was found, as one would naturally expect it to be found, that the whole milk, fairly rich in fat gave very much more cheese than that from' wbioh some fat had been extracted, varjing down until the lowest was obtained from skim-milk. It was found, apart from this, however, that the cheese of the high est proportion of fat also held a fairly large proportion of water, and that in the case of the skim-milk cheese lees water was held, or it dried up very quicMy. Thus it sim ply exemplified the old saying about "recfuiring an axe to cut a skim-milk cheese with." Several breeds of catt...
ARTIFICIAL LEGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 24 September 1914
ARTIFICIAL LEGS. It is not often that an inlirmitj carries'' with it tho possibilities ot mak ing a fortune, but this is what seeing to have happened, to M. Desoutter, tho young £Vencn aviator, who had his amputated as the result or a hying ac cident about two years ago. He has invented an artificial leg, the improve ments in which should ensure great commercial possibilities. In an in terview he described how, alter a year's misery and discomfort with tii» oidinairy false leg, he started exper. xuenting on one which would be ligute* than tuoso made by the usual makers. "Why," he said, "you can't walk more than 50 yds without feeling dono up. In walk-ng you, of course, swing, each leg, and you can't swing an arti ficial leg weighing anything from 61b to I01b very lar." The artificial limb dovised by the young Frenchman weighs only 21b, and its chief factor is an alloy of his own discovery, in which aluminium figures. Asked whether in consideration of the weight of one's natural leg ...

CHAPTER XXV. WELCOME HOME. An exclamation of surprise escaped Mr. Short, them he said : "Did Miss Therese fasten you in the kitchen because she could not get that paper ?" "Yes, sir. It wasn't more than eight o'-clock, and there we've been the livelong day." "Will you let me take the paper to the inspector ?" he asked. "No, sir. I promised the mistress I'd follow the directions, and they say I'm to take it, and take It I shall," she said, decidedly. "Very well, then, I'll go with you. I suppose you'll take charge of the house until she returns ?" he said, looking at Eliza. "Not if I know it. Do you think I am going to be left alone with a corpse, and a corpse that hasn't died a natural death ?" replied Eliza. "You just come along, with me," said Phoebe. In a few minutes the two were ready to start, and, assisted by Mr. Short, they got through the break fast room window, which they shut after them. At the gate the two servants look ed aghast. '''Well, I never ! Whatever made her fast...
WAVE-MAKING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 24 September 1914
WAVE-MAKING MACHINE. A machine has been invented which will make, to your liking, any one 01 a half-dozen or more cliiieient kinds of waves—ocean waves, long rolling billows, short choppy waves, ana, among .others, the white-cap variety. It js possible to have a reai .Milfoiu surf just by switching on an elcctric motor, which sets lour plungers in motion. These plungers work up ana down in the water, and the different ways the plungers are worked make the different kinds of waves. For in stance, if long rolling billows are de sired, the plungers are worked in uni son. If a short choppy sea is want ed, two plungers are worked up ryid two down—this combination causes iue waves to break into white-caps. The different combinations of the plungers result in the different kinds of waves.
CHAPTER XXVI. THE DAWN OF HAPPINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 24 September 1914
CHAPTER XXVI. THE DAWN OF HAPPINESS. | "Laurie, I had a very queer dream last night about your father," said Sir Leonard Hatton to his nephew. They were at the breakfast-table, and the butler, having attended to their wants, had retired, as Sir Leo nard preferred the morning meal to be informal. It was the time when he was least reserved, but it was not often that he spoke of the brother with whom he had quarrelled many years ago, and Laurie looked at him in surprise. "Wbat did you dream ?" he asked. For a moment his uncle did not re ply, then he said ; "I dreamed that your father came into the room and said : 'It's time Laurie had those diamonds. They are worth a fortune.' " 'Where are the> ?' I asked ; and he replied : " 'Let him have his own way, and he'll get them.' Then I awoke, but the impression left upon me was so vivid that I could have imagined your father had really been speak ing to me." "Do you think' it possible he is living ?" asked Laurie. "Not I heard many years ...
AN AFRICAN POMPEII. IMPORTANT "FINDS." [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 24 September 1914
AN AFRICAN POMPEII. IMPORTANT "FINDS." j Interesting particulars of important discoveries made in the Nile Valley were furnished by the llev. Professor Sayce at a recent meeting of the Egyvt Exploration Fund, held m Lon don. At Abydos, said the lecturer, Troiessor Naville had discovered the famous temple of Osiris, as he believ ed, and another colossal monument oi Egyptian antiquity had been added to wiiat were already known. It re minded students that the histoiy 01 Egyptian architecture, as it was known, was one of decadenoe. Apart, however, from Abydos and the work 01 Petri©, the chief discover.es of the past season had been made, not in Egypt, but in the Soudan. At Korma, a little south of the third cataract, Dr. lieisner was chang ing all accepted ideas of early- Soudan ese history. He had shown that as early as the fifth and sixth dynasties tne northern Soudan was occupied by Egyptian troops, and that trade was carried on from the Blue Nile to the lied Sea.

THE FARM. HARVESTING LUCERNE FOR HAY. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 24 September 1914
THE FARM. - 9 HARVESTING LUCERNE FOR HAY, "Forage crops suffer both in yield and quality if harvested too early or too late. Much damage is done, also, when too much or too little time is given for curing. Lucerne is especially susceptible to mistreat ment because the leaves may be loBt, the colour spoiled and soluble nutri ents lost by a little neglect, and it pays good returns for care owing to the high price of a first-class pro duct. First class lucerne hay has fine stems, many leaves, and a bright, pea-green colour," says R. L. Stew art, of the New Mexico College of Agriculture. "If lucerne has made a rank growth it will be found necessary to harvest at an earlier period than if it has grown slowly. Rank growth means coarse hay. This is why the second cutting of hay is usually coarser and not so good in quality as the first cutting. If the lucerne is allow ed to stand too long before cutting, the lower leaves will turn yellow and fall, and the part that the hay buy er most desi...
WHITEWASHING. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 24 September 1914
WHITEWASHING. f Since the law in some parts of the country demands it, and as sanitary science says it is a good thing in the interest of the health of the herd, and the wholeeomeness of the pro duct, whitewashing of cow stables and other premises about the dairy has become an annual duty among our good dairymen. We admit that it is a disagreeable job, this handling of lime, wielding the old-fashioned whitewash "brush, which must be poked into innumerable corners and over rough surfaces in order to make 'a good job, and dodging the splash ing fluid, and especially so when those engaged in milking must do ! the work, as their hands are invari I ably tender and therefore attacked j by lime. The handling of whitewash . with a brush is not only disagreeable ' but it is somewhat expensive, and i this accounts very often for the tar diness of some dairymen to do their whitewashing. There is one easy way to get around this difficulty, and that is by means of a spray pump. It does the i wor...
AN OVERDOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 24 September 1914
AN OVERDOSE. Gladys saw it coming—in fact, bad been dreading it for some time — but now that it was an accomplished fact, instead of going off into hysterics or any other paroxysm of despair, she registered a solemn vow that she would either win or die game. Though her heart might break over his defec tion, that melancholy fact should re main her own secret. She and Bertie Langdon had been friends for years, and tacitly conceded lovers for at least half that time, al though no actual words of betrothal had been spoken; but Gladys had been so serenely happy in his companion ship, his devotion, and his unmistak able sentiment towards her, that she had been well content to let matters remain as they were and not seek to anticipate what she felt assured the future held in store. And yet she knew well that Bertie was very human ; and when Gwendolin Seymour flashed upon their little social world like a lovely tropical star she felt' the pro monition of coming sorrow. And when Bertie, afte...

NO MORE INDIGESTION. WONDER ACHIEVED BY NEW PRODUCT. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 24 September 1914
NO MORS INDIGESTION. WONDER- ACHIEVED BY NEW PRODUCT* It seems reasonable to suppose that in a short timo there will be no more indiges tion or dyspepsia. The old style " diges lives " such as bismuth, pepsine, charcoal, soda, etc, which after all are only tempor ary in their effects, are rapidly becoming •discarded in favor of a simple antacid, known to chemists as bisurated magnesia, with the result that chemists are being callcd upon to treat fever case3 of stomach trouble than ever before. This is.not so very surprising when it is remembered that, [[according tt available statistics, over ninety per cent of all stomach trou bles are due to acidity. Bisurated magne sia may readily be obtained from any c'.emist at a srnalj cost, and half-a-tca spo.jnful taken in a little water after meals will immediately neutralise all liarm ul acM.-s in the stomach, prevent fer mentation, and thus render the food easy of digestion.
LIFE IN THE SUN. IS ITS ENERGY WANING? NOTED SCIENTIST'S STUDY. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 24 September 1914
LIFE IN THE SUN. IS ITS ENERGY WANING? NOTED SCIENTIST'S STUDY. A task that must be continued for several centuries beior© a deiinite con elusion is reached has been commen ced by Mr. (J. G. Abbott, director oi ine Smithsonian Astro-physics Obser vatory, Washington. The "presen i conclusion or scientists is that the continual loss oi lioat irom the sun is approximately balanced by regcnrutioii, auo to condensation of the whole body, uon-eqaent upon the radiation or i.n a cat. Mr. Abbott has initiated a s}»~ loiii of observation by which Jio hopes it will be possible to determine whe ther the solar radiation is constant, increasing or dimmish.ng. Original researches regarding Solar radiation have occupied Mr. Abbott continuously for several years, and he ■s recognised as one of thc^ leading au thorities on the subject. "All the comforts of our life on earth aro de pendent upon the radiation of the sun/' said Mr. Abbott, prior to his departure for Sydney. "It would be very interesting...
DUST AND ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 24 September 1914
DUST AND ELECTRICITY. A curious experimental electrical machine described by Mr. W. A. Doug las Itudge to the Cambridge Philosop hical Society depends on dust. When clouds of dust are raised, either by tho wind or by artificial means, they ^ are always strongly charged with elec tricity, which is positive or negative, according to the nature of the mater ial ; and it is possible to obtain, a con tinuous supply of electricity by using suitable apparatus to drive a dust-la den stream of air through an insulated tube. While the dust is passing, the tube will yield u steady stream of sparks, sometimes more than 2 inch long. The air escaping also, carries a charge, which in a room may be retained lialf-an-hour or more. The charge is probably due both to the actual raising of the cloud and to friction of the dust against the tube. Such dust may be used as flour, sill-1 phur, road dust, or fin® iron filings.
ROAD-MENDING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 24 September 1914
I ROAD-MENDING MACHINE. An experimental test has been made ! in Paris of a. portable road-mending | machine, consisting of a six horse power gasoline engine, actuating an air-compressor, the air being led from a storage tank to a pneumatic rammer and a pneumatic pick, the latter being described as merely a modification ot the well-known pneumatic rivetter. The workman holds the tool close to the road and pushes the pick under the surface, raising it as he proceeds. It is said that the work was done at j a much footer rate than was possible j with the ordinary pick. The pneu- j matic rammer also gave good results. | One advantage of the system is that | sovoral men can work from the same J compressor plant. The trial seems to indicate that mechanical road-mending is more effective than the present me- i thod.
CARE OF CREAM FOR CHURNING. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 24 September 1914
CARE OF CREAM FOR CHURNING. I Good butter is largely dependent upon the care which has been given the cream while it is being saved and rip ened for a churning. Improper care of ; crea/m is almost isure to cause poor but- j ter, while careful management of it j usually will result in good butter. The margin of profit in good butter over that of poor quality is sufficient so that it is highly profitable to take every pos sible precaution which will ensure but ter of the better quality. The creamery buttermaker has ito take cream as he gets it and make the best of it. Often it is tainted and really unfit for making a high grade quality of butter. On the farm one has the management of cream from the first and for this reason can make a better butter than the creamery if he goes about it in the right way. In the first place, 1 like to skim a cream of about 30 per cent. fat. We keep it in ten-gallou containers and from each ten gallons of cream we count on about thirty pounds of butter. ...
