CHEESE MAKING AND THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 24 December 1914

CHEESE MAKING AND THE SOIL. It is becoming more and more known to cheese makers that tho soil lias a very great deal to do with tho kind and quality of the cheese made (says Mr. Primrose McConnell in "Tho Dairy"). The skill of the cheese maker is, of course, of the most im portance, and a good maker will pro duce good material under adverse cir cumstances; but, on the other hand, if the soil is one suitable for the purpose, L it is more easy to ao guoti TOni ttaii_-"J in a converse case. A curious fact is often met with in the best quality soils, and that :s, soils which grow the biggest crops are not those which nat urally produce the finest cheese, but that often seco id-rate soils make a much better quality where an equal amount of skill is exercised in both cases. The best low-lying pastures, for instance, which yield floods of milk, (and where the grass grows quite as well as elsewhere), very often do not suit as the land which is comparatively poor up ou the nill sides. It is ...

TREATMENT OF WIRE CUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 24 December 1914

TREATMENT OF WIRE CUTS. There aro many valuable horses cut on barbed wire every year, and it is well for the farmer to know just how to treat those injuries. If the cut has simply been through the skin all that will be necessary is to wash it clean with strong carbolic acid water after a few days. If the muscles of the neck or limbs have been severed so that, the wound hangs open, the first thing to <io is to stop the flow of blood. This • an be done by tying a tight bandage • f clean white muslin over the wound. Of course if an artery has been cut, it must be tied. After blood has stopped flowing, re move bandage and wash away all clot ted blood with an antiseptic made by dropping a few drops of carbolic acid in a pint of water. After the wound is cleansed, the flesh may be sewed to gether, leaving i. open enough for all matter to run < ut. If the wound is annotated with crude carbolic acid once or twice n week, 110 proud flash will grow, and flies vill be kep...

DIAMOND DICCING IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 24 December 1914

DIAMOND DIGGING IN NEW SOUTH WALES. v. The mention of diamonds generally brings up to most people visions o! South Africa, and the penalities in flicted on one in that country should nil uncut static be found in his pos session. The king of' gems however, exists in vnrious parts of the world ; and elsewhere tlio law in relation to monopolies is not so hard, although in Brazil, where there ate large tracts of diamond country, other circumstance's combine to give the diamond hunter a warm time. In and near the township of Inver eil. tn the New England district of New South Wales, the mining for diamonds is now a regular industry, and although the proved ground in the immediate .vicinity of the town is now held on lease by several syn dicates, diamonds of first water have been found in the creeks which feed the G\vyder and Macintre rivers in the heart of the groat • mountain ranges.

ON A TRAMWAY CAR. " Hear that tupping under the* tar ? " asked lha conductor the other clay. I hud heard it. ( writes Captain Cuttle )—a low, monoton ous. bumping, exceedingly disturbing noise to, the contemplative tempera ment. ".That," continued the man with the bell-punch cheerfully, '* is a flat wheel, a thing which gives even more trouble on railways than it does on trams. A few months ogo the driv er of this tram probably had to stop verv sudde»lv_ and }i<? put. brakes wl tlV'sncb force as to'Jock this particular wheel.

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 24 December 1914

MELBOURNE LETTER (From our Special Correspondent.) The march of the portion of tho Sec oiul Expeditionary Force through the streets of Melbourne was calculated to impress the populace as probably it ivas never before impressed, with the splen did manhood this country is capable of producing. There could be nothing bettor in the world than the combina tion of physical fitness—a lithe strength that is almost feline in its perfection—and high intelligence that was the characteristic element of the virile young manhood that with "Boots, boots, boots, boots, Movin' up and down again" traversed the principal streets and made wistful while proud the onlookers as they were brought to a realisation of what a magnificent contribution to the Moloch of War Australia is mak ing. Another feature of tho march was the evident effects of the brief training. The material must be of the best that can show such results so speedily, and after these splendid fel lows have received the finishing touchcs a...
