THE SECRETION OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 16 February 1916
THE SECRETION OF MILK. From experiments it soems to bo established that milk in not simply a accretion from tho blood] but is form ed in tho milk glands from tho cells of tho gland itself. Or, to state it, per haps, a littlo moro plainly, milk is tho liquified milk-gland. This conclusion has boon reached through many analy ses, which shows that tho composition of tho ash of tho milk is like that of tho tissues of tho milk secreting org ans; whereas, were tho milk simply a transudate from tho blood it would huvo a similar composition and could not servo.as tho exclusive food of the young animal for in that caso it would not contain nil tho components neces sary for growth. 'Chemists assort that it is from an examination' of what is termed the liquid portion of milk, or skimmed milk, they aio lod to tho conclusion tlin^ it is not simply filtrata, or secre tion from tho blood. This coniains from 2 to 5 per cent. of protein; but wliilo tho protein of tho blood exists as albumon or fibri...

BACTERIA IN MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 16 February 1916
UACTEBIA IX MILK. : ' It is ft'well-known fact that bacteria plays 'an important part in the manu facture of daiiy products. Some kinds > of germs arc added to milk and cream on account of the useful functions they perform; whilst other .species of bac teria arc so injurious to milk and its products .-.that' the necessary precau tions are taken to Keep mi lb, etc., free from them. The controlling of the bacterial content of milk is an impor tant part of dairying. .A curious fact about bacteria is that they exist everywhere, and readily en-, ter milk, especially when, it is warm. As milk contains all the food elements necessary for tho sustenance of germ life', all forms of it multiply at a rapid' rate in warm milk. The cleaner the conditions under which milk is handled, tlio lower will bo tho bacterial content of it, and tho germs in predominance Will be those of the beneficial .species.

Mr Taylor, of Bal I.'irat, had the publican's booth, and seemed to be doing good biz. in dispensing liquid refreshments to the thirsty. Mrs Berry had control of the luncheon booth, and in this department the wants of the public were assiduously attended to, while the fruit and lolly stall was well patronised. The attendance of visitors was not so great as last year, but all the t...

Women have stepped into the places which were filled by some of the men, there will be no disposition to dis miss those of them who can bear the strain and who must earn a living. But quite apart from that, of incomparably more im portance than that, is the out standing fact thet a large num ber of old industries will be tem porarily paralysed,and that those who pursued them will find them selves standing idle in the mar ket...
