A Worker's Festered Hand. NO BETTER AFTER OPERATION OBSTINATE SORE YIELDS TO ZAM-BUK. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 12 March 1914

A Worker's Festered 1 NO BETTER AFTER OPERATION OBSTINATE SORE YIELDS TO ZAM-BUK. Mr. M. Truscott, of 92 Wittenoon St., Boulder. W.A., .sufl'ered severely from a nasty festering sore which spread all over the back of his hand. Until ho came to use Zam-Buk the hand showed no sign of healing. "My husband," said Mrs. Truscult " ono day knocked the back of his hand and got a small wound. Think ing the injury was but a trilling one, ho took no notice of it, with the result that, within a day or two it broke out into a nasty 'running sore. This gradually began to spread all over the back of the band and it became ex tremely inflamed and painful. " In spite of the many dillerent pre parations which we used the inflam mation appeared to got worse every day, and the sore never showed any sign of healing. A doctor was con sulted, but as the ointment proscribed was used without effect, be decided to operate on the band, and ''scraped it. But this also proved inell'ective, The nasty sore was as...

THE MILKING PERIOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 12 March 1914

THE MILKING PERIOD. ^ The short way with the pool milker is to weed them out. A cow in poor condition may be allowed two months in which to recruit her strength. In the case of the aver age cow, the milking can he con tinued until within a month oi calving. If a cow is in low con dition, it is better to resort to higher feeding than to dry off. Cows are known that have been treated thus for 'many years, some times being milked to within ' a month of calving, that have carried as good an appearance and pro duced equally good calves as those which run dry nearly three times as long. Six weeks may be considered the average period during which a cow should be dry unless the cir cumstances are exceptional. It is, however, the extraordinary milker that occasions the greatest difficulty. There are someMeep milkers that are the despair of their owners, who would often enough be willing to accord them a reasonable period of rest if there was a possibility of drying them off without having to...

Fifty Thousand Millions. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 12 March 1914

Fifty Thousand Millions. K Fat occurs in millc as little glo bules measuring from .OUOC inches in diameter downwards. Fleisch maim reckons their number at about 50,000 millions in a pint of milk. Fleischmann, dear reader, is" that celebrated German chemist whose book stands out as the book of the dairy business, and you see what ho says about globules—that there are fifty thousand million glo bules of butter-fat in one pint of milk. Fifty thousand million ! Do you know that if you sat down now to make fifty thousand million strokes with a pen you would not have completed your task in five years. This is why we want the scientist in the dairy business as against the untrained ex-factory employee, who has been, perhaps, a pupil at the "fool school." We want science brought to our aid when we have to deal with things so extremely microscopic in size that one pint of milk contains fifty thousand mil lions. Fancy the frauds we have had foisted on to us as dairy ex perts—the Valentines, a...

CHAPTER II. A BITTER PARTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 12 March 1914

cijapthk ii. A BITTER PARTING. The shock, coining at a time of fancied security,, was a terrible one ; but none lost hope or courage save Lady Copluston. She, poor woman had suffered to the limit of her en durance, and with a slight scream she fainted away. Taking her in his strong arms, Captain Brand went cat-like up the rocks, and these two were the first to join Phil. Boris followed, pluektly refusing assistance, and with some dilliculty I'lric helped Sir John to scramble to the top. Then lie and Phil re turned for the food, a couple of sleeping-rugs, and two rifles the others had forgotten. It was im possible to do anything for the safely of the camel and the horses, which were grazing in the vicinity of the pool. On the summit of the rocks was a crater-like hollow, about six feet in diameter, and surrounded by a loose three-foot parapet that of feic-d an ample supply of holes and crm ices for the purposes of ohsm Na tion and shooting. On three sides (lie mound looked difficult ...

CHAPTER I. THE CAMP AT THE OASIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 12 March 1914

CHAPTER X. THE CAMP AT THE OASIS. It was a day in the early summer of 1895. Away out on the Alger ian desert, miles south of the in terior railway terminus of Biscara, the African sun was sinking like a dull red ball of fire towards the - horizon. In the still, scorching heat a little party of Europeans—all English—were travelling northward as rapidly as the circumstances would permit. So they had been pressing on for the greater part of the past forty eight hours—two ladies riding two horses, an elderly man perched on a camel, and three younger men, who inarched alongside on foot. The latter were on the verge of exhaus tion, though they doggedly refused to betray this fact to their mount ed but scarcely less wearied com panions. The party had little food and no water, but they fortunately ' were supplied with rifles and aminu nition. To the left and to the rear the eye encountered only sand—a rolling, ir regular waste of reddish-brown co lour that stretched away to the cop pery sky...

Success With Early Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 12 March 1914

Success With Early Po tatoes. The second year we ever put out potatoes of our own we practiced the methods given below, and they proved so successful that we still are handling this crop the same way. The ground was thoroughly stirred to a good depth early in spring. However, we now do the stirring late in the fall, a thin surface dress ing of manure first being given, so it may be turned under and enrich the soil. In either case a thor ough harrowing after the ploughing will crush the clods and mellow the j ground for making an ideal seed bed. We marked the rows off with a stirring plough, making the fur rows from eight to ten inches deep; the potatoes were sliced into pieces containing just two "eyes" each ; two of these pieces were dropped in each hill, they being about sixteen inches apart in the row. If they are put closer together only one piece should be dropped ; if farther apart three pieces will be required to the hill. The potatoes were covered by hand with a hoe. We do n...

THE FARM. A NEW METHOD FOR DETERMINING FAT AND SALT IN BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 12 March 1914

THE FARM. A NEW METHOD FOR DETERMI N ING FAT AND SALT IN BUTTER. Secretary Wilson, of the Depart ment of Agriculture, calls attention to a new test for fat and salt in but ter. This test was invented by Roscoc H. Shaw, Chemist in the Dairy Division, and is especially designed for use in creameries. The circu lar explains the,apparatus in detail and gives complete instructions for operating the test, placing in the hands of practical creamerymen a simple, rapid, and accurate method by which can be determined the per centage of fat and salt in butter, and which, in connection with one of the reliable moisture tests al ready in use, makes possible the complete analysis of butter right before the churn. The new test for fat will probably not require more than £1 worth of apparatus beside that already on hand in most creameries. The same centrifuge is used as in the Babcock test, and the same acid. The special apparatus consists of a separatory funnel of glass with a capillary stem. -'Th...

Local Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 12 March 1914

Local lining. It would seem that the roaring days have started on the newly found lioeky Bit'er mining tield. .Seventy applications in all have been made for permission to mine, on private lands, and daily there are well-known min ing men from different parts of the State going to and fro. '.file road to the field is receiving attention at the hands of the Shire maintenance men, and motorcars make the trip in quick time. A little while ago selectors in those parts considered the road only suitable for saddle horse tratlic, but their opinions have changed. This afternoon two buggy loads left town containing some gentlemen of mining repute who are making the second visit this week. A few days ago Mr. Smith, Inspector mf Mines for the New England district, visited the field and expressed himself as very pleased with it. Tt appears that the field will be very extensive, as in an adjoining selection to that where the mineral was first found, blocks are being pegged out. It was predicted ...
