DAIRYING. KEEPING CREAM IN GOOD CONDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914
DAI R Y I N G. KEEPING CREAM IN GOOD CONDITION. After the separation jf the cream, comes the problem of keeping it in good condition, until ready to send it to the creamery. This can bo accom plished by a thorough cooling of the cream as soon as possible after separ ation. Aside from flavors or odors which are absorbed by the cream from imT proper surroundings, mos' of the bad flavors are caused by the development of certain forms of bacteria. The growth of these bacteria is practically checked at a temperature of 5') deg., . while they grow more rapidly as the temperature is kept closer to blood heat. As they start to grow as soon as the mill; is drawn from the cow's ud der, it is necessary that the cooling of the cream be accomplished as (ii;io;.ly as possible, and that it be kept cool. , , The cheapest and handiest arrange ment for cooling the cream, and keep ing it cool is to have a small tank, through which all of the water is pumped to the large stock tank. The temperature of ...

CYCLING. Motorists resident on the N.S.W. and S.A. borders of Victoria will be pleased to hear that the obnoxious ' ameucIecnsSo Hint' mbtort^S^ili u'or.v be able to cross both boundaries without hindrance. For years past the Victorian Motor Car Act has re quired visiting motorists to pay a fee—N.S.W. carists having to, p;iy 5s 9d every time they entered Vic toria on business or pleasure. Re lief has now been granted to the satisfaction of hundreds of motor ists resident on the boundaries of Victoria.

THE MOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914
THE MOTHER. I am the pillars ot the house; The keystone of the arch am I. Take me away, and root and wall Would fall to ruin utterly. I am the fire upon the heart"h, 1 am the light of the good sun; I am the heat that warms the earth, Which else were colder than a stone. | At me the children warm their hands; I a:m their light o£ love alive; I Without me, cold the hearthstone ' stands, Nor could the precious children thrive. 1 am the twist that holds together The children in its sacred ring, Their knot of loVe, from whose close tether Xo lost child goes a-wandering. I am the house from floor to roof, 1 deck the walls, the board I spread; I spin the curtains, warp and woof, And shake the down to 'be their bed. I am their wall against all danger, Their door against the wind and j show; | Thou wham a woman laid in manger, Take mo not till the children grow! —Katherine Tynan. Brown: I wanted to get married when I was twenty-one, but my father said I didn't have sense enough. So I waited ...

Rising and Falling. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914
Rising and Falling. Captain Hamilton is generally look ed upon as a smart, anil scientific offi cer, and ho is also a man with a strong sense of humor. It is said that when in command of a small vessel he hur ried up one day from liis lunch-table on account of threatened bad weather, | and almost immediately afterwards sent down one of the midshipmen to look at the barometer. Walking aft, lie happened to look down the skylight, and to his amaze ment observed the middie fortifying himself with a glass of his best brown sherry. When the youngster came on deck, Captain Hamilton asked him how the glass stood. '■Steadily rising, sir," was the re ply. "Ah!" said the captain; "and how is the sherry?" "Like a shot came the reply: "Steadily falling, sir." Hamilton so much appreciated the joke that he allowed the incident to pass without further notice. "I consider this painting a beauti ful piece of work," commented the art dealer, contemplating the portrait of the sleeping canine "It's a do...
A BULL'S HEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914
A BULL'S HEAD. In studying dairy sires, one should be constantly oil the lookout for in dications which will reveal desirable characteristics. In the head are cen tred all the nerves of the body, and now the question is, is there anything about the external construction to re veal the quality and strength of the nervous system. The eye, which is closely associated with the brain, re flects, to a large extent, the nervous energy of the animal. We like to sec an eye full and bright, active, but not of a nervous expression; a mild eye rather than one having a wild appear ance. An eye of this kind/reveals the right sort of nerve energy which should be possessed by the dairy sire. The sunken and half-closed eye in dicates a nervous system which is un responsive and lacking in quality. We would not sclent a dairy sire which re flected through his eye this sort of a nervous temperament. Xervous tem perament does not mean an animal that is nervous but rather nerve-full. A nervous animal ts ...

Sporting. CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
spoiling CYCLING. A Gonllot, the well-known Australian racing cyclist, lias scored in another sir days race in America. According to a. cablegram to hand, Goullet partnered with F. Hill, of America, won the Boston. G days race. McNamara, another Aus tralian rider, ran second. The mileage was not mentioned. It appears that in the early stage of the war, during the retreat of the British and French forces from Mons down to Amiens, upwards of 100 English motor lorries and contents had to be destroyed to prevent their falling into the hands o£ tho enemy. Drastic as such a course was, it was better than making tho Germans a present of such a largo number of valuable vehicles and munitions of war. Tha wastage has since been made good—in. fact many of the leading English motor manufacturers are now working day ;.nd niglit making lorries for Russia and France.

BISMARCK, THE MAN OF BLOOD AND IRON. What He Did for Germany. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
[BISMARCK, THE MAN OF BLOOD ' AND IRON. What He Did for Germany. The hand of Bismarck, the greatest statesmen Germany ever produced, can be largely traced in the present war. One of the great aims of Bis marck's policy in the 'sixties and 'seventies was to secure his country against attack from without through alliances and political combinations. Curiously enough, it was the manner in which he engineered certain Euro pean alliances which led to this "man of blood and iron"—the phrase is based on the Iron Chancellor's own use of the words in a spcecn in 1ST.2—being termed the "Peacemaker" of Europe; for while his foreign policy aimed prin cipally at isolating France and ren dering her incapable of forming anti German alliances, he gradually com bined the central X'owers of Europe into a Peace League, the nucleus of which was the Austro-German Treaty of Alliance, which Italy joined in 1SS6. So successful was he in counteract ing the aggressiveness of Russia that the latter Power rema...
BATHS OFTEN DO HARM. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
BATHS OFTEN DO HARM. It is a mistake to think that baths are always beneficial to one's health. Tinder certain conditions they i> moro harm than good, and should be j avoided as much as possible. Thoy are particularly dangerous for per ] sons whose general physical condi tion is weak, as well as for those with a tendency to apoplexy or to fatty degeneration of th» -f. ' | A cold bath in the morning is valuable if it is promptly followed by an even increase in the bodily tem perature. When a cold bath is fol lowed by the slightest chilliness it is proof that harm is being done. The longer you stay in a warm bath the moro depressing the effect. This may be overcome to a large extent by adding salt to the water. If a stimulating effect is wanted, a hot bath should not last more than two minutes at the most, for as the temperature of the water is gradual ly lowered the bather will feel the ef : fects of moist heat and will be as de pressed as he is on a humid day in midsummer. | Sea ...

PROCRASTINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
PROCRASTINATION. At the tcmperance meeting and con cert, Brother Slanlts arose and started to give a recitation. Brother Slanlts was a long nervous youth. The recol lection of the applause which had greeted the previous items on the programme Berved but to damp his ardor and make him regret the hour wl-en he promised to spealc a piece. It was a mixed audience, moreover, and critical withal, particularly in the rear of the hall. Brother Slanks got along all right until he reached the words, "He stood beside the bier!" Then his memory failed him. "He stood beside the bier!" he repeated, trembling. The evil spirits on the back benches mur mured one to another. "He stood be side the bier!" groaned Slanks, and drew a moist hand across his dripping forehead. , "Go on!" yelled a voice from the rear, go on—it'll get flat while you're waiting, you fool!" In the uproar that followed, Brother Slanks fled from the platform, tearing out his hair in bagfuls. To be tactful and truthful, one must o...

SHAW OF THE GUARDS. Famous Boxer Killed at Waterloo. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 November 1914
SHAW OF THE GUARDS. ! Famous Boxer Killed at Waterloo. In these days, when such great ex- ( Army boxers as Gunner Moir, Bands man Blake and Bombardier AVells are so prominently in the public eye, it may be interesting to recall the fenb; ot' that great army boxing giant of 100 years ago, .Toini Snaw, of the Life (Juards. He stood Gt't. -Jin. in height, weighed fifteen stone, and was broad in proportion. In a few months after enlistment he was the regimental champion at boxing, wrestling, and swordsmanship: and then he embark ed on a series of great boxiug encoun ters. He lirst overcame the formidable Captain Barclay (one of the cleverest ! amateur boxers of that day), two of the captain's ribs being broken by Shaw in the contest. Then it took the latter only seventeen minutes to triumph over the powerful Burrows, the West-Countryman, whom it had previously taken the famous llolin eaux an hour to beat. Yet at that tims Shaw was without science or ex nnrirr.ce, and had nothing to rolv...
