FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 14 February 1914

FERTILISERS ON MEADOWS. The Agricultural Department of the Swiss Government liave just published an interesting report experiments conduotcd over three years to test the effect of different fertilisers on meadow land. The fertilisers experimented with • were nitrogen, phosphate of lime, and potash; the fertilisers being tried alona and mixed.- The conclusion arrived at is thatj in order to obtain the heaviest and most profitable crops,-, it is neces sary to supply fertilisers containing ths three principal fertilising substances— phosphoric acid,' potash, and nitrogen. The 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 the first-cutting than onv the second cut, the average -increase hav ing been found to be from 62 to 100 per cent, on the former, and 20 to ,40 per cent. <}n the second crop.

FERMENTATION IN PAPER-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 14 February 1914

FERMENTATION IN PAPER MAKING. Among the -recent improvements in handling paper-jnaking materials is a 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, a,nd much or this is starch. In clippings from new cloth there 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 the effect of 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 dp in the brewing process, and convert it into a form of sugar that is easily disposed of.
