ELECTRIC STERILISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914
ELECTRIC STERILISATION. The importance n0iy'a&lt;3a jte attached - after 'age-long megl'ect-^to securing milk in a condition/as nearly as pos sible ^ree from disfease germs of every, kind gives spepial interest to a mode of eldctrio aterili&atioii invented by a Livorpool doctor. Hitherto the niode 'pursued to-preserve lriiik in full fresh ness of condition for the 'considerable length'of tinie necessary for its distri bution and consumption has been to heat tho liquid to a temperature which kills the microbes, and then' to prevent the access of 'further microbes by se curing it in air-tight bottles, after which tho freshness seems to bo pre served indefinitely. An objection to tho method is that tho heating of tho milk is in effect a cooking process, which so far changeb the nature of the constituents as to render them loss readily nutritious. Dr. J. M. Beat tie, of Liverpool, however, sterilises the milk by "electric current, and thus avoids heating it at' all.
DEEP PLOUGHING FOR OATS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914
OEEP PLOUGHING FOR OATS. Oil the Iron Mountain railroad de monstration farm at Hope, Ark., oat laud ploughed four inches deep yielded but 23 bushels to the acre, while the same land yielded 77 bushels to the acre. This increase results from, the fact that deep ploughing afforded, a better reservoir for soil water,and. dry weather did not delay the growth. Ill tlio deeper ploughing a larger , am ount of moisture came in contact, with more soil particles and dissolved more plant food. There was also more space for root development, and the larger root development was enabled to se cure more nioisturo and more plant food.

GOOD SPIRITS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914
GOOD SPIRITS. In these days ono important in gredient of attractiveness iB apt to bu overlooked; that is,! good spirits. Everyone recognises how much can be done to improve the complexion, or the hands, or hair or figure, by rea sonable oaro and culture; but. it is not so well understood how much' may be dono for the spirits. Yot who would deny that good.' spirits, joie' do vivre, brightness, a calm, sunny disposition, aro eminently attractive? The first thing is to realise that good spirits aro largely a matter of will-power, and have httlo to do with circumstances. No doubt it is hard ' to be joyous with the brokers in the house; hut we seo overy day that some people manage to bo cheerful, when cheerfulness would seem impos sible. And, as a matter of practical experience, we do not find that the ivcaicn with whom tho world goes well, who have delightful husbands and chil dren, good health and plenty of money ire tho most serene. Nearly all cheerful people like their allow-croature...
SPECTRES THAT STOLE MONEY. SAVINGS CARRIED OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914
SPECTRES THAT STOLE MONEY. SAVINGS CARRIED OFF. The way in which a French family oi farmers called on "spirits" to aid them in an attempt to avoid paying the rent is causing some amusement in Paris. Two brothers, named Guitton, occu pied, 'with their, wives and children, a siuall farm hear Saint-Amand. One day they told their neighbors of in- ' visible hands, which upset their flower pots and disarranged their gardens. Mmo. 'Guitton, the younger, said, too, chat by niglit she had seen through her window two black men—or demons— who walked up and down, easting cur ses at the house. It was discovered on the next day that the family's whole savings had disappeared . Appeal was made to the priest and to the police. But neither the Latin of the one nor the vigilance of the other (says the "Matin") could throw light upon tlio matter for the moment. Enquiries were continued by the police and the "stolen" money was found under a staircase, where the brothers Guitton had hidden it. '

POTTING BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914
POTTING BUTTER.

The temperature on thu day of churning should be as low as possible, and if water can be obtained at 50 deg. for washing, so much tho better. After at least three wash ings, during which the butter is rooked gently to prevent its aggregation, it should ho brined and subsequently placed in a trough to drain and dry, if a butter box is provided for cooling, so much, tho better, inasmuch as for keeping, the butter, should he quite firm before salting and working on the but ter worker, The salt should be ground almost aa; fine as Hour, having first been thoroughly dried.

STORING OF WINTER VEGETABLES. (Minna A. Stoner, Prof,.home Economics, N.D. Agri. Col.) [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914
STORING OF WINTER VEGE- 1 TABLES. (Minna A. Stoner, Prof, .dome Econ omics, N.D. Agri. Ool.) The storing of winter vegetables is economical and desirable. In the fall enough vegetables go to waste from the average farm garden to supply the table daring the entire winter. The task of storing is not difficult if one has a knowledge of the conditions best suited for storage, and is willing to perform a small amount of labour. A dry woll aired not top. dark, frost proof room, cellar or sodliouse will serve the purpose. Tiie most favour able temperature is not over 50 degrees hah. Celery, cabbage and 'sweet po tatoes should be stored in the coolest part of the room. Backs should bo adjusted on which to place the storage boxes or barrels. This avoids the dangers of overheating, excess mois ture, and prevents decay. All veget ables should bo gathered before the frost, sorted, driod thoroughly before packing. For long storing, reserve those of most perfect formation and lirm textured. Each ...

PIGS AS BAROMETRS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 29 January 1914
PIGS AS BAROMETRS. Probably tho last thing that one would expeot to indicate changes in the weather is a pig's tail. However, according to the skipper of a Nor wegian sailing ship, who usually has a porker or two on board, one. could scarcely have a more reliable baro'n eter When a weather. disturbance is coming ion, the tajls of the pigs, usually kinky, straighten out and their ears droop. With the barometer reading between 29.90 and 30 the tails begin to forecast approach of a trough of low pressure. When the reading gets, below 29.50 the pigs seek cover, and the storm is pretty sure to-burst within five Lours. But a high baro meter puts a beautiful twist in the tails, and the ears stand jauntily stiff ~ud with a trifle of a cant forward The successful man in any business is the one who can and will make use of the experience of others—who, has the courage to discard his own errors and adopt the truths discovered by; others,
