WHITEWASHING. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 11 September 1914

WHITEWASHING. Since the law in some parts of the country demands it, and as sanitary science says it is a good thing in the interest of the health of the herd, and the wholesomeness of the pro duct, whitewashing of cow stables and other premises about the dairy has become . an annual duty amonc our good dairymen. We admit that it is a disagreeable job, this handling of lime, wielding the old-fashioned whitewash "brush, which must be poked into innumerable corners and over rough surfaces in order to make a good job, and dodging the splash ing fluid, and especially so when those engaged in milking must do the work, as their hands are invari ably tender and therefore attacked by lime. The handling of whitewash with a brush is not only disagreeable but it is somewhat expensive, and this accounts very often for the tar diness of some dairymen to do their whitewashing. There is one easy way to get around this difficulty, and that Is by means of a spray pump. It does the work well and quic...

Love's Limit. 'Ypatia, the belle of Bethnal Green, and 'Arold Jones, of Bow, had not been long engaged, but the sugared honey was fading off. " 'Arold," she murmured, as they sat on a seat In the park, "how much do you love me?" He considered for a moment. "Well, you see," he said-for h8 waB a practical youth-"love Is not the sort of-thing you can weigh up like potatoes, is it? But still, 'Ypatia, I love you lots." "But-but, 'Arnold, dear, would you -would you go through flames and water for me?" 'Arold arose. "Now, look 'ere 'Ypatia," he said, "don't get funny.

THE FARM. . 1 HARVESTING LTJOERNE FOR HAY, "Forage crops suller both In yield and quality if harvested too early or too late. Much damage is done, also, when too much or too little time is given for curing. Lucerne is especially suscoptlblo to mistreat ment bccause tho leaves may he lost, the colour spoiled and soluble nutri ents lost by a little neglect, and it pays good returns for care owing to tho high price of a first-class pro duct.

CHEESE EXPERIMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 11 September 1914

CHEESE EXPERIMENTS. j I should like to call attention to some cheese experiments which have recently been carried out at the Kil marnock Dairy School on tjje mak i ing of cheese from different qualities of milk (writes Mr. Primrose Mc , Connell in the "Dairy" London). The experiments were for the purpose of testing what proportion of cheese could be got from milk containing j varying quantities of cream, ami it was found, as one. would naturally , ' expect it to be found, that the whole ' milk fairly rich in fat gave very i much more cheese tha-n that from j . which some fat had been extracted, I | varying down until the lowest was ' obtained from skim-milk. | It was found, apart from this, | however, that the cheese of the high j est proportion of fat also held a fairly large proportion of water, and that in the case of the skim-milk cheese less water was held, or it dried up very quicVily. Thus it sim I ply exemplified the old saying about I "requiring an axe to cut a skim-milk ch...

OBJECTIONS TO EXCLUSIVELY VEGETARIAN DIET. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 11 September 1914

OBJECTIONS TO EXCLUSIVELY VEGETARIAN DIET. The chlet objections to a purely vegetable diet are that the undigested-, refuse is greater than with an equal quantity of animal food; that a longer time and more exertion are required in digesting the most nutritious vege table foods, such as legumens, while other vegetable foods do not contain a sufficient proportion of nitrogeuous material. Also, if one lived entirely on vegetable food, a greater bulk would , be required, and, owing to the fact ? that such food is less easily absorbed, satisfaction to the' appetite would not soon be produced. Animal food has a great advantage as regards conveni ence. Man is not an eating-machine; he requires food which is easily con verted Into the body substance, ard this Is supplied by the flesh of ani mals, milk, and eggs, with a due pro portion of non-nitrogenous food; sheep and oxen work up Indigestible vege table materials Into easily assimilable mutton and benf. The Golf Girl' John seems to have ...

PAINFUL PLEASURES. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 11 September 1914

PAINFUL PLEASURES. Thl« sounds odd-as though plea sures could really bp painful! Yet pleasure may be both deadly and pain ful. The late Mr. Curtis Donnvthorpe, who was an invalid, had a perfect mania for dancing, and as his health did not allow liim to indulge this taste, he engaged the Kelby troupe of dan cers, who performed dally on a special ly built stage at his house. Mr. Don nythorpe used to suggest new steps to the dancers, and one day while watching their gyrations he became over-excited and fell a victim to the heart disease which had always threat ened him. - Another eccentric person killed by his pleasures was Theodore Botley, who devoted his whole existence to eating. He had agents to search for new dishes, and in order to eat as frequently as possible, ho would in dulge in hard work to get up an ap petite. He had the largest library on the subject of eating that has ever been owned by one man, but, irony of fate! he eventually died of starva tion because he was unable t...
