DISTRICT NEWS. AVOCA. TROUT DYING. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 21 January 1914
DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CORBESPONDENTS.) AVOCA. TROUT DYING. Some very fine trout have been landed at the Homebush reservoir. It is stated that many of the fish in this reservoir are dying owing to the shallowness of the water and the scarcity of feed. Local anglers have also caught a fair number of perch, weighing from lIb. up to 31b in the Avoca River and Bet Bet Creek. Should dry weather continue good hauls will no doubt be secured, as the perch generally take all kinds of bait when the water is low. An effort which is to be made to re stock the rivers of Victoria with black fish is not likely to prove suc cessful while perch, which are known to possess distinct cannibalistic pro peneities, have control of the waters. Years ego the Avoca River teemed with black fish, but with the advent of the perch they soon became thinned out, and have now almost entirely disappeared.

The milk remains unaltered for several days, both in its physical and chemical charaoters, and in the biological constituents, the for ments. Some of the germs present &re killed, while others have their de vlopment arrested. By this mothod uncooked milk can be kept for eight or twelvo days at a temperature of 12 deg. to 14 dog. 0., while boiled milk is preserved indefinitely. The gas is produced with littlo or no trouble. The inventors clani for this method a solution of the questiOi of infant feeding.
