CONGEALED MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 9 January 1914
CONGEALED MILK. Milk frozen into cubes weighing 20 I or 30 pounds apiece is a new idea adopted in the Brazilian province of Minas, Geraes, from .. which section I Rio do Janeiro draws _^nost of its . milk supply, says '.'The Toronto," I Ont., Telegram.

MILKING CAPACITY. ITS TRANSMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 9 January 1914
MILKING CAPACITY. ITS TRANSMISSION. Following upon a notable paper by t>" lumps Wilson, ot the Royal Col lege of Science, Up0n tbe way in which colour is xahncii^ Shorthorns, the same authority now deals with the way in which milk yield is inherited. That is, milk from which a larger' or smaller quantity of-butter can he produced. "Most of our cattle yield milk which contains on the average about 3.7 per cent, of butter-fat ; but Jer seys yield milk containing on the average about 5 per cent. There arc many individual fluctuations in both breeds, but these figures are about the average. In Ireland, as in other j parts of Britain, there arc many Jer sey-Shorthorn crosses'. During the last two or three years we have been able to get the milk of a number of these analysed, and it is found to contain about 4.2 or 4.3 per cent, of butter-fat on the average. Individual fluctuations have been found as low i as 3.9 per cent, and as high as 1.7, but the average is as stated. "This fact is...
CHAPTER X. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 9 January 1914
CHAPTER X. Three days after Barnes had ar rived at Crackingstone with Sir Pe ter, the situation stood thus : Barnes admired Edwina, and loved her splen did inheritance. He had never looked upon himself as the future Duke of Chiltern. His knowledge of aristo cratic institutions was too limited to allow him to speculate on the pro bable death of Lord Chester as the means of elevating him to one of the - l.i - (Wii,iniui. " Ill fact, so far an mere position went, Barnes was well satisfied with that which he had. He lacked only money and lands, and these, as lie easily in ferred from Sir Peter's skilful re marks, he would win with Ivlwina's band. As for Edwina, she confessed to herself that Gerald Lovering, though he was certain to be a duke, was not half so fascinating in his personality as Vane Prance. Prance was impetuous and overpowering in his love-since she opened the way for him to be so. Barnes-or Lovering,' as she knew him-was cold and cal culating. But his appearance was credi...
USE OF FREE NITROGEN. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 9 January 1914
TJSB OP FREE NITROGEN. Some of the European countries are particularly interested in the manufacture of sulphatd of ammonia. Sulphate of ammonia contains, on the average, about 20 per cent, ni trogen, and is quite frequently a very efficient fertiliser. A new plant for the manufacture of this highly nitrogenous fertiliser has just been organised in Norway with a capital stock of over two and one-half mil lion dollars. It aims to turn out an nually 10,000 tons of sulphate. To do so it will be able to use enormous quantities of the free nitrogen of the air. The farmer who grows lucerne, clover, cowpeas, and other legumes is every year adding value to the farm and to the products of the farm, for legumes arc transformers of free nitrogen just' as the factory is. While sulphate of ammonia will be used by those in intensive ' farming operations, it will be many years be fore the average American farmer will need to rely for his nitrogen up on the manufactured forms-that is, of course, if...
HYGIENIC MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 9 January 1914
HYGIENIC MILK. According to a French authority standard hygienic milk should have been put through the following pro cesses. 1. Analysis and testing to remove watered, skimmed, soured or low grade milk. 2. Filtering or straining to remove taechanical impurities such as hairs, dust, etc. 3. Pasteurisation at a temperature above 176 degrees Pah. and immedi ate cooling to about 40 degrees to destroy pathogenic microbes, such as those of tuberculosis, diphtheria, typhoid fever, etc. 4. Bottling or sealing in sterilised containers. It should then be kept at a low temperature until sold. The first country to establish this standard for milk was the Argentine Republic, which enacted statutory re gulations as long ago as 1890. These .were soon followed hy similar laws in. various European countries. In I Argentina the treatment described lias become obligatory. -"Chicago Produce."
GETTING THE BEST VALUE FROM MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 9 January 1914
GETTING THE BEST VALUE FROM MANURE. When proper att. rUiun. is giwn to the manure it can i>e of i;roat .alue to the farmer, but whoa it is neuyctcd handled ;ir ih^ ri^Ut time, much of its wuiiii a fc;u!irer is lost, and the presence o: a manure pile has harmful effects upon the cows and their milk. Much damage roraes from permitting the manure io accumulate in the barn, aud care'u» regard must be had that the manure is removed early and to the proper place. The value of manure as a fertilise* lies in the soluble salts contained therein. These salts contain ammonia and potash, and can all be dissolved by water. If manure is piled in the barnyard where rains and snows can wash it, or where streams or drain age can wet it from underneath, all the soluble salts will be dissolved out When manure is spread upon a field the rain washes tlies* valuable sub ftances into the pruund, where the* are needed by the props. When the manure is piled in the barnyard the rains wash the valuable sal...
FACTS ABOUT SILOS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 9 January 1914
FACTS ABOUT 8ILO8. A ton ot silage occupies about fifty cubic feet, while a tone of hay stared In the mow occupies 400 cubic feet (Bays the "Homestead"). On this 8» ols eight tons of ensilage may be stored In the space required for on« ton of hay. On general principles It may be said that the silo should he built comparatively deep, because In that case the ensflage settles much more solidly, and therefore keeps bet ter. It will scarcely pay to build si silo 10BS than ten feet in diameter and 20 feet deep. This will hold 2S tons, and would keep eight cows for a perl of of six months, feeding 40 pounds per head daily. A silo 12 feet In di ameter and 24 feet deep holds 49 tons, and this amount ot silage would feed 13 cows, foi a period of six months, feeding at the rate of 40 pounds per head dally. Reckoning the weight of ensilage at 50 cubic feet per ton, and allowing the consumption of 35 or 40 pounds per head daily, it Is an easy matter to reckon out the required Bize of a eilo to ...
