Fermentation in Milk and Cream [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

Fermentation in Milk and Cream In the ccurse of some valuable observations on dairying, the result of a visit to Denmark, Ir 3. I. Dunstan, Director of Agricultural Educa tion, Notts County Council, says:-" There is no Possible doubt as to the fact that a great deal of thebad btter made, results from imperfect or improper souring of the cream. The organiss presentinthe air of a dairy are of many kinds, and cream allowed to stand and sour in the air will absorb and become a breeding ground of countlesE species, some of whose influence is good and some bad, consequently it i a matter of chance how the butter from such a sample turns out. The same chance result occurs when a quantity of sour cream orbutter milk is added to the cream before churn. ing, though here, of course, if proper precau. tions are taken, the conditions may be more under control. The use of these cultures or organisms, however, which contain only those whose action can result in a proper sourig, is intended to remo...

Abnormal Milk. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

Abnormal Milk. -- - - , In connection with the contamination of milk is the fact that it frequently becomes contami. nated by dirt and filth from the skin of the teats and udder, and with matter from the hands of the milker, and how often does it become contaminated after withdrawal from the udder ' We are all aware thatit is one of the most p'werful absorbent agents known, and that it is one of the beet of cultivation media. In connection with the latter fact, we have only to remember that there is quite a number of micro-organisms which produce definite changes in milk, e.g., the Bacterium termo and Bacillus fretidus lactis producng putrid milk; the ticrococcns viecosus producing viscosus or mannite milk; the M. prodigiosus, the Bac terium lactis erythrogenes, and the Sacrina roses producing red milk; and the Bacillus cyanogeau e producing blue milk; while several organtsms are capable of setting up the lactic and butyric fermentations; and Cohn has de. scribed an organism found i...

Food for Soils. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

Food for Soils, The value of fertilisers depends upon the nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash they con* tain. These are the necessary plant foods. They are the elements most rapidly removed from the soil, and which most be re turned again to the land if it is to be kept mn a state of unimpaired fertility, and these sub. stances must exist in such a state that they may be readily taken up by the plants as food. Nitrogen is the most valuable of the plant foods, and the one of which the soil is the most readily exhausted. An atmosphere of three fourths nitrogen surrounds the plant: but to most plants this is not directly available as plant food, but is carried into the soed in minute quantities by rain and snow. The common source of this desirable food are nitrate of soda, sulphate of ammonia, the guancs and organic nitrogen in bones, fish scrap, slaughter house waste, dried blood, cotton seed meal, castor oil, bean pomace and animal refuse. Phosphorio aoil is second only to nitrogen ...

Are Anarchists Lunatics? [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

Are Anarchists Lunatics ? - 0 That Anarchists as a matter of fact are lunatics isas obvious to common senseas that a dog is mad when be rushes at friends and foes indiscriminately, and with frantic teeth endeavors to tear them to piecesi The point of our question is this : Are European jurists prepared to pronounce Anarchists technically insane; and will legis. latures enact statutes for their certifcation and restraint? The medical mind foresees an opidemicof Anarchism in the near future, and its natural instinctis to look about for pre. ventive measures. The only preventive measures of any avail to avert severe epidemics of contagious diseases in cattle have been the killing of the infected cattle inthe very earliest stagesof the malady. In the ase of humaubeings, the very early detection of cases, and their prompt isolation have alone been efficient. Our first business is to secnre the enactment of a statute or statutes declaring Anarchists and inciters to anarchy "insane." When ...

A Daughter on the Revolt. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

A Daughter on the Revolt. Miss Pearsall Smith disorses thnus in the Nineteenth Century on this subject:-Let every girl then claim her right to individual development, not merely for her own wel fare and enjoyment or for that of her family, but chiefly that she may become a more perfect instrument to perform her allotted part in the world's work. It must be a matter of prinoiple. not a matter of self-indulgence. She must be able to say not merely, I wantto do this or that," but "I believe I ought to do it." It is as fatal to a woman to live her life merely for her own enjoyment as it is for her to sacrifice her own life to other people's enjoyment. She must sacrifice her self. not to people, butfor principles. She must ask herself frankly and honestly, h" Have I any worthy purpose in my life? Am I doing the beat with such powers as God has given me, or am I allowing them to be unused and wasted ? Am I growing stronger and better with each year, or am I narrowing and deterioratinRg Sh...

AGRICULTURAL. Weaning Calves. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

AGRICULTURAL. Weaning Calves. It is adisappointing time (writes Mr Webb Donnell Maine, to an American agricultural esper) when one sees the calf or colt that has been growlng thrftil while fed by its dam nning to oo roug in hair and thn in flesh as it comes to the changed conditions of feed when once it has been weaned. It right here that so much of the trouble comes in attempting to raise calves and colts. It ie the soddenly changed condition of feed that ditarranges the small animal's digestive organs, and for a while appears to stop it. growth entirely. The remedy is plainly the making of the change from the dnam's milk to the new food as little of a change as possible at first, and to make this change ver gradually. To do this it is best to be n by allowing theealf, for instance, to take but half its fill of its dam's milk, finishing upon a mixture of fresh milk and warm skim milk. Gradually the dam's milk ran be reduced in the ration and the warm skimmed milk increased while in...

THE YOUNG FOLKS. A Native's Fidelity. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

THE YOUNG FOLKS. A Native's Fidelity. Br Conl M. A.oncose. She was only a faithful black servant, but none of them knew her worth until the day of the flood. Lizzie was a native, and among her duties shbehad to take caro of two children, Mabel and Dave. These she loved dearly, and her love for them was only equalled by that of their faithful playmate, eonto. One day they went for a walk down the creek, which was then onlya sluggish stream, trickling feebly over a pebbly bed, at the bottom of a deep channel. Several times, without the slightest wrning, this tricklingcrceek bad risen suddenly, and in a very abshort time filled up its channel to over flowing. Its rapidity of filling was doubtless caused by the breaking away of some of the numerous dame, which the various owners of several sheep and cattle runs had built partly across the creek. These were to provide suffi cient water for their stock all through the summer. Lizzie and the two children wandered down the creek, until they...

Aprons. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

Aprons. For bazaar stallholders, who frequently wear aprons as badges of office, a notion which has a certain amount of novelty is to make them of the pretty flowered art-muslins now to be had in such great variety and at such low prices., with a graceful spray of artificial flowers on the bib corresponding with the pattern of the muslin. One stall-holder, for instance, might have an apron of rose-patterned muslin, with a cluster of roses at the left side of the full gathered bib, and strings of pink ribbon; another might choose a daffodil muslin, with flowers to correspond, and pale green strings; and the representative flowers of the third mightbe terra-cotta chrysanthemums or red poppies. The newest housekeeping aprons nearly cover the dress, and are made of white linen trimmed with crossway bands of colored cambric, edged with feather-stitchiongin white crochet cotton. The bib reaches to the throat, and is gathered into a neck-band, fastening at the back with a pearl button. Man...

The Decimal Standard. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

The Decimal Standard. Now that the United States have adopted the metre and the kilogram as their standards of weight and length, in conformity with Continental practice, Eogland can hardly afford to stand out in the cold much longer. TheAmaerlins have not one0o faras toabolkh the anomalous yard and pound, but after 5th April (instant) they are to be considered as derivatives of the decimal standards. This concession will give their engineers and manu facturers an opportunity, which ours have long ceased to enjoy, of competing on equal termsfor foreign work with the firms of all thenations belonging to the metrical union, and marks a most important step towards obtaining complete universality of weights and measures.

How to Run Far and Fast. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

How to Run Far and Fast. Physiologists and lovers of athletics may be interested in recent experiments and re. searches of a French artillery captain, M. de Raoul, who, some fifteen years ago, began to try and find out the most economical and least trying way of walking. There are many manners of walking, says the "Popular Science News," some of which are much devoid of grace, but it may be supposed that as far as eficiency is concerned one must be better than the others. Al. de Raoul has come to the conclusion that, as far as fast walking is concerned, the beet method is that which he calls marche enflexion. The principle is to run without leaping, to raise the bodyabove ground as little as possible, to keep the knees bent, the upper part of the body inclined forward, so thatpractically you arealwaye rnningafteryour centre of gravity. The feet must be raised very slightly. M. de 60 and teach him to run as long as his legs can carry him without getting out of breath. Some men can, o...

The Twin of the Earth. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 27 April 1894

The Twin of the Earth. Venus is the twin of the earth, her diameter being about 7700 miles, or only some 200 miles less than that of our earth. Jupiter is the Goliath of planets, being 86,500 miles in diameter, or about 1300 times as great as the earth in volume. Jupiter makes a less brilliant appearance than Venus because it is ten times as far away. It is believed that whales often attain the age of 400 years. The number of years these huge creatures have lived is ascertained by counting the layers of laminee forming the horny substances known as "whalebone." These lamine increase yearly, just as the "growths" do on a tree.

A Question of Statures If parents are tall the children tend tcr be tall; but the offspring of parents of unequal height most frequently follow the shorter. Excessive tallness is very rarely perpetuated; even if both the parents are above the average, the height of the offspring is usually only a third of the excess reached by the parents.

"If perchance you are surprised that, d being what I em, I have set out boldly on such a dangerous road, remember that, although I appear to be a novelist, yet I am no more than a missionary." Thus D])on Luis Colosma, a Spanish Jesuit priest in his d preface to " Pequeneces," one of the most remarkable of last year's novels. The author n goes further in explaining, with a frank ness most admirable, why having a message to mankind he chooses a vehicle omore subject to condemnation than commen. dation by ministers of the gospel. "As once e upon a time," he says. " humble monks used to mount upon a table placed at cross-roads on the wayside to preach hard truths to the indifferent who failed to go to church, ad dressing them in the rude language to which they were aceustomed, so that they might understand follyand clearly, Y thus I erect a pulpit in the pages of a y novel, and preach to those who otherwise would not listen, and in the...

The honeymoon slaover. t Besides, there has been so much in real I. earnest between us that we can look at it these "great questions" of the outside y world from a friendly impartial sort of view. Therefore it was with a sort of joint - security feeling that I asked my newspaper friend's opinion in connection with the banquet recently given by Baron Hirsch to a number of men as rich as himself.
