WHIPPING CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 14 February 1914
WHIPPING CREAM. The factors necessary to get cream to whip well are to have it thick, cold and a little sour. Thin cream, that is, cream contain ing less than 25 per cent. of butter fat, is nearly -impossible to whip when the temperature is above 50 per cent. F. Skim milk can be whip ped to a froth when the temperature is near the freezing point. This can be noticed when freezing ice cream or lacto, and shows the cohesive influ ence of the albumen and casein upon the viscosity. Thin cream will whip easily near the freezing point on ac count of the increased viscosity which aids in incorporating the air. If cream is allowed to scour, ii will thicken somewhat owing to the curdling of the casein. This collects the fat globules and holds them to gether. Ageing thin cream for a day or two will allow it to whip much more readily. Thick cream or cream containing 25 per cent. to 40 per cent. of butter fat will whip quite readily at 50 per ieent. Fah., even when rather sweet, yet better resu...

PUBLICATIONS. The Secret of a Long Life. Ever since men began to think at. all, there has been a never-end ing -search for something that would put off the hour of death, or banish it altogether, The searchers have been divided into two classes: those wlho sought to extend life by improvying upon Nature, and those who sought to find out Nature's laws and apply them..- The first classe.mbraces, all those old phil osophers who-- searched for 'The Elixir of Life,' and all modern quacks who announce that they have found it. The second class consists of a band of scientists in. all parts of the world whose com bined work is actually laying bare Nature's secrets, one by one, for the benefit and happliness of man kind. In ,"ife' for March is given the story of the work of one such scientist--a story so interesting and unusual that we recommend our readers to procure a copy from the nearest bookseller.

Sunday Corner. Fault-Finding. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 February 1914
Sunday Corners Fault-Finding. l-q' .t -is strange how oblivious we can be of our own faults and of the . blemishes in our own.chgracter, and lioni clearly we can see the faults - and blemishes 'of other .people: Finding so much wrong in others is not'a flattering indication. of what our hearts contain. We ought to .be very quiet apd modest in criti-i ... sinig others, for in most cases we are just telling the world what our - .own faults are. Before we turn our microscopes on others to search ,out the unbeautiful things in, them, we had .better look in our mirrors to see whether or not we are free ourselyes from the blemishes we 'would reprove in our neighbor. There is a wise bit of Scripture which bids us get clear of the be~mns in our own eyes, that we S rinay see .well 'to pick the motes out of the eyes of others.

SALTING COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 February 1914
SALTING COWS. .Cows that are good producers use approximately , three ounces of-sali per day ; and that 7 cattle should have salt is one . e ver3 important questions many of us dc not understand, and therefore neg lect, writes a Canadian dairy farm er. All animals which consume large quantities of vegetable matter require salt. Salt is required to expel the excess of potash from the animals body which is taken in with the vegetable food. Cows which do not get suffi cient salt gradually -change to a con dition of low vitality indicated by rough coat, which results in a final breakdown. If salt is supplied when in this condition, recovery is pos sible. There is no question that salt is absolutely essential to the preserva tion of the health of milk-producing herds, while the expense of salting cows is so trifling that it cannot be used as an excuse for not attending to such a weighty consideration. In Italy .marriage brokers are a regular institution. They have* poc ket-books filled w...

The yearling grounds, as: they are termed locally, extend along. the nprth-east_ and northern coasts; of Que:nslandu.

STUMP CLEARING BY ACIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 21 February 1914
STUMP CLEARINC BY ACIDS. A New South Wales farmer report ed as having been successful in des .roying stumps with a mixture of sulphuric and nitric acid. In treating a swamp stump, 3ft. 6in. in diameter, 6d worth of acids was put in an augur hole, and in five weeks time the whole stump and roots had so rotted that they could be knocked to pieces with a hoe. A stump 3ft. in diameter_.would ..take about_ half a pint each of acids, and a smaller one less. The acids .are used in equal quantities, and nothing is added to them. A hole is bored in the stump with a 2-inch augur, deep enough to hold the quantity of acid to be used, and then one acid is poured in and the other added. The hole is then plugged airtight with a wooden plug. Not more than one pint of acids (half a ,pint of each) should be mixed at one time. Mr Guthrie, New South Wales Government Chemist, says: "There should be no risk attending the mixing of the above quantities, provided the sulphuric acid is added to,the nitric a...
