SMOKE AND ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 12 March 1914
SMOKE AND ELECTRICITY. I Electricity appeared as a solution for the smoke problem in a recent demon stration. The smoke-abating appliance removed' the'soot from 900 cubic feet of smoko in a minute at. a total cost of about a penny a day for operation. The action of the apparatus consists in pre cipitating the solid- particles "in the smoke by means of a powerful electric current, and its invention is based on the fact that one-third to one-half of the solid matter in' smoke from smolt ing furnaces consists of particles of iron oxjde.f Eicetrical current is applied to tho smoko by means of a wire woven through a number of small pipes placed at the top of the chimney so that the smoke "must pass through them, soon as the oloctricity is turned on the small particles floating in the smoko are changed to largo particles which fall :baclc Tuto a bin by their' own weight. Its application is not confined, howover, to smeltingfurnaces, for ' it has .been found that- the device works as succe...

KINDS OF POTASH SALTS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 12 March 1914
KINDS OF POTASH SALTS. In order to obtain the best results from- the uso ol: potasli salts, the ma nure should bo apphed early; this re commendation hold's good especially with kainit, which proves most effective when applied in winter or qui to early in the spring. The more ooncentrated salts—sulphate of .potash or muriate of potash—can. bo put on the soil in the course of the manuring season, when most convenient. With them there is not the same reason for early applica tion . The potash salts sold in this, country are usually either one or the other oi tho following throe kinds: —- Kamit, containing 23 per cent, sulphate oi potash, equal 12£ per cent, of pure potash; sulphate of potash, containing UO to 1)5 per cent, sulphate of potash, equal to 48 to 50 per c-ent. pure pot ash;1 muriate of potash, containing SO to 85 per cent, muriate of potash, equal to 50 to 52 per cent, pure potash.

HAND-REARING FOWLS. ' There is a difference in constituents between mare's niillc and that of a cow, and this must be allowed for when it is necessary to rear a foal artificially. Itoughly speaking, a mare's milk has half as much protein, fat, and mineral matter, but a little jnore sugar than cow's milk. It is Ifdvisable to use milk from a freshly-calved cow and one not testing high,, about 3 per cent, being a fair standard. The usual plan is to use about, a fourth as much pure rain water as milk, and add . i: a. dessertspoouful of'sugar to each pint of the mixture. The best plan is to dis solve tho sugar first in hot water, then add enough water to make one-fourth pt a. pint, and make the pint up with whole milk. Tho mixture' should be warnied'up to about 100 degrees F., -and tbc.'.foaf given about a.-pint every two hours, or oftener in smaller quan tities, if; very young foals arc being reared lime-water added to tho milk and water corrects acidity, tends to pre vent scours; and p...
