ECHELON MILKING STALLS. AT HAWKESBURY AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 31 July 1914

j ECHELON MILKING STALLS. | 4/T HAWKESBURY AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. Compared with our old bails, tho echelon milking stalls show to consider able advantage, especially in tho fact that a comparatively small building (31 foot x 10 foot), is all that is requir sd to millc sixteen oows at a timo. since this building can bo built and litted up for from £100 to £130, according to locality, it is well worthy of considera tion as an offectvio and comparatively oheap building for milking purposos. Originally tho "stalls" wcro made ol wood, tho uprights entering tho con croto floor, but thoy aro now construct ed of iron piping, which is boltod to tho walls, and tho floor is thus left froo from obstruction, a decidod advan tago when oleaning. . Tho construction of tho floor is rather different from tho usual method, as the expenso has beon cut down as low as possible by filling up with packed sand, and putting 2 inches of reinforced con oreto on tho top.

What Dyspeptics Should Know. PHYSICIAN'S TIMELY ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 31 July 1914

What Dyspeptics Should Know. PHYSICIAN'S TIMELY ADVICE. The fact that few dyspeptics really understand the cause of their trouble is probably the reason why drugs are still used to such an alarming extent. The practice is wrong, however, and is strongly condemned by many physi cians. The presence of excess acid in the stouiach is the cause of practically all forms of digestive trouble, and this cau be neutralised and rendered harm less by the occasional use of ordinary BISUHATED magnesia-a product which can bo obtained of any oheruist, Physicians use bisurated magnesia themselves as well as recommond it to their patients, because they recognise that it not only overcomes dangerous stomach acid and thus, ensures easy digestion, but by its use no harmful drug is introduced into the system and therefore there can be nq unpleasant after-efieots. Half a teaspoonful taken in a little water after meals is usually quite sufficient to keep the food contents of the stomaoh free from fermentat...
