FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 12 February 1914

FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. The Agricultural Department of the Swiss Government have just- published an interesting report oi experiments conducted over three years to test the effect of different fertilisers oil me:;dow land. The fertilisers experimented wiili were nitrogen, phosphate of lime, and potash, tho fertilisers being tried alone and mixed. The conclusion arrived at is that, in order to obtain the heaviest and most profitable crops, it is neo.s sary to supply fertilisers containing the threo principal fertilising substances— phosphoric aeid, potash, and nitrogen. Tho extra yield obtained from this sys tem of manuring covers the cost of the fertilisers and leaves a good profit. The effect of the manures is more mark ed on tho first cutting than on the second cut, the nverago increase hav ing been fonnd to be from 62 to 100 per cent, on the former, and 20 to -10 per cent, on the second crop.

FERMENTATION IN PAPERMAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 12 February 1914

FERMENTATION IN PAPER MAKING. Among the recent improvements in handling paper-making materials is n process for extracting the starch from cotton rags that are used in making linen papers. Practically all cotton cloth has some kind of a filler, and much or this is starch. In clippings from new cloth i4iere is a considerable amount of starch filler. It was the practice formerly to soak the rags in warm water, and then to boil them in an alkali solution. But tho effect ol the alkali on starch is very slow, as it causes the starch to swell up, so that the solution reaches the inner part of the starch grains only with difficulty. Malt is added in the proper amount to convert the starch into a soluble sugar which readily dissolves out of the fibre of the cloth and leaves it free of the filler. The active principle of the malt is the "enzymes" that attack the staroh just as they do in the brewing process, and convert it into a form 01 sugar that is easily disposed of.
