LORD AVEBURY'S OPINION OF BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914

LORD AVEBURY'S OPINION OF BOOKS. A library is true fairyland, a very palace of delight, a haven of repose from the storms and troubles of tlje world. Rich and poor can enjoy it equally, for here, at least, 'wealth gives no advantage. Von can transport yourself without .delay and without expense to any part of Hij globe, or even into the regions of the sliios. You can call up the greatest met. nf the past or the present of this or any oilier country. Surely to the works nf Kimllslimon, at least, Englishmen nave sonic right. The literature of Rutland is the birthright and Inheri :nnco of every Englishman. "England l::ts produced some of the greatest of poets, of philosophers, of men of sclcuce. No country can boast a brightei, purer or nobler literature, richer than our commerce, more powerful than our arms, the true pride and glory of our country. ,

Tliit Jersey herd which consists of somf thirty head of cows and an equal number of calves and yearlings, it recognised as one of the best in Okla homa, and with its strain of good producing show animals will no doubt very shortly rank with the best Jersey farms in America.

This was the largest and most strongly contcst-d dairy cattle show ever held in Amer ica.

TUBERCULOSIS BACILLI AND SUNLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 4 September 1914

TUBERCULOSIS BACILLI AND SUNLIGHT. | Investigations recently completed at one of the State Universities showed that the bacilli of tuberculosis will j remain alive and virulent outside the ? bod; of a living animal for months. I In the droppings of tuberculous cat ! tie they lived for more than two 1 months ; in butter in cold storage, I for ten months ; and in the tissues ? of a dead guinea pig, in water, for nearly a year. I It is evident that a tuberculous animal, either alive or dead, is a menace unless intelligently handled and disposed of. There is one thin?,, however, that is certain death to ; these devastating and well-nigh in ! vincible little germs, and that is abundant sunlight, which makes short work of them.
