WHITEWASH THAT WILL NOT RUB OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 26 February 1914

WHITEWASH THAT WILL NQT RUB OFF. A first class whitewash is made by dissolving 21b of ordinary glue in 7 pints of water, and when all is dis solved adding 6oz of bichromate of potas.sium dissolved in a pint of hot water. Stir the mixture up well, and then add sufficient -whitening to make it np to the usual consistency, and apply with a brash in the ordinary manner as quickly as possible. This dries in a very short time, and, by the action of Jight, becomes converted into a perfectly insolable waterproof substance, which does not wash off even with hot water, and at the same time does not give rise to moald growth, as whitewash made np with size often does. It may be colored to Any desired shad* by the use of any aniline dye or powdered coloring, while by the addition of a smallpro portion of calcium sulphite its anti septic power is much increased.

THE PIG A GRAZING ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 26 February 1914

THE PIG A GRAZING ANIMAL. The too closely penning of pigs (ex cept while topping up) is a mistake, in a state of nature the pig is a grazing animal, i'or breeding unci growing p gs. a grass outrun is profitable. Admitting that pigs must be fed differently, from other stook, when housed, yet grass is — still a natural food to thorn, even as it is to horses' and cows. Pigs graze as close to tho grund as sheep. It is sometimes stated that pasture deterior ates under cows, but whether this bo so 9r not, pigs benefit pasturage, and rapidly improve poor quality grass. Even tho very youngest pigs running with the mother will graze a little, but . should bo given some other food as well. Shade and shelter aro neces sary. Sunburn is to be guarded against. Even with larger pigs, a sudden change from dull to suuny weather during tho hotter portion or llio year means sunburn. When grass is plentiful, storo pigs of all ages can be run on it cheaply, and need but very little trough food. With reg...

What Does the Picture Film Cost? THE WORLD'S RECORD TO DATE—£20,000. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 26 February 1914

What Does the Picture Film Cost ? Tuk World's Ueooud to Date— " £20,000. More and more tho cry is for "actual" scenes, and wlicn a picture "falcod" the "faking" must be very cleverly conccalod. In t),io transla tion of a book from cold typo to a movhig picture tho greatest ingenuity is, frequently displayed. For example in filming Zola's "Germinal" (the j most thrilling scenes of which occur in a flooded coal mine), the under ground workings were built up on tho | surface with such perfection of detail I that, following the film, ono has the impression of actually being under ground. This realism is accentuated in connection with the explosion and the flooding of the mine. Tho World!s Work describes how •"At'antis" (the novel by Gerhardt Hauptmann, JJobol p>iz«-winner of 1912) was turned into a moving pic ture at a world's record cost;—; "The story occurred to Hauptmann on the occasion of a visit to North America, being prompted by an arm less passenger, who was dexterous with hi...

How to Prevent Acid Stomachs and Pood Fermentation. By a Stomach Specialist. As a specialist who has spent mapy years in the study and treatment of stomach troubles, I have been forced to the conclusion that most peopU who complain of stomach trouble possess stomachs that are absolutely healthy and normal. The real trouble (that which causes all the pain and difficulty) is acid in the stomach, usually due to, or aggravated by, food fermentation. Acid irritates the delicate lining of the stomach, and food fermentation causes wind, which distends the stomach abnormally, causing that full bloated feeling. Thus both acid and fermentation in terfere with and retard the process of digestion. The stomach is usually healthy and normal, but irritated almost beyond endurance by these foreign elements — acid and wind. In all such cases—jvnd they comprise over 90 per cent, of all stomach diffi culties—the first and only stop nec essary is to neutralise the acid and stop the fermentation by taki...
