BEEF AND BU.TTERFAT. l'robably nothing, says a well-known agricultural writer, would induce tho grazier of fattening cattle to transfer his attention to dairying, but tho pro ductive capacity of a well-selected cow is much greater than that of a 'well bred steer, and luoro can be made olf grass by combining the two. Tho avcr j ago dairy cow produces about 500 gal lons of milk annually, yielding 124 per cent, or ti'Jolb of lat, sugar, casein, and ash, practically alJ of which, is di-" gestible. It would be a good stoer tliat would incroaso 5001b in livoWeight in tho course of a grass season, and only, about GO per ceul. or 3001b. of that amount would bo beef, tho value ! of"which as a food has furtlior to bo discounted by its bono content.

RADIUM IN BUSINESS WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 18 March 1914

RADIUM IN BUSifJESS WORLD. The manufacture of radium lias gone far beyond scientific experiment; it is no'.v a raattcr-ot-fact business, '.vit.li a constant demand at a price of about 75,000 dollars a gram for the radium salt usually sold, as pure radium is not made. Austria has tried to maintain a monopoly ; the pitchblcml of Bohemia furnished the material for its dis covery, and this is the richest ore known, having sometimes as much as a fifth of a gram to the ton. But France is a successful rival, having two factories. The first difficulty .is to obtain the raw material. The Bohemian mines are a Government monopoly of Aus tria ; the French factories send for ore to. Portugal, Tonkin, and Mada gascar ; for even ore containing only three-thousandths of a gram to the ton is worth working up. A fortune awaits the discoverer ol a rich deposit of radium-bearing ore; such discoveries have been reported from many countries, but have all, so far proved delusive. The ore goes through comp...
