PREVENTION OF MILK FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 16 April 1914

PREVENTION OF MILK FEVER. Frequent milking, but only n little at a timo, is found one of the best pre ventives, and for tliis reason_ leaving the will witJi the cow (some say for 24 hours; hut for :i week is better) is generally successful. As gross feed i'i'.s. good doers, and heavy milkers are more liable, it is a good plan to tako tlu'so off green fee<l, and put ou a spare diet of dry fodder a week before calving. About three or four days be fore waiving n purgative is advisable. For this. Soy.. glauber snlts, loz. gin ger, and a little treacle, in a quart of water, will be found effective. As the accepted cure by means of pure air pumped into the udder seems to point to the fact that an anaerobic (without air) bacteria is the cause, it is advis able 011 tlrs and other grounds to vig orously disinfect floor and walls of byres, rug", utensils, etc., and flush out the oow. A milk-fever outfit should always be kept, so that pure air can bo pumped In, and the udder and sur...

"PERPETUAL MOTION" AT LAST [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 16 April 1914

"PERPETUAL MOTION" AT LAST i The problem of perpetual motion has once more been solved. The ap paratus is a cyclinder with a pro peller wheel set inside n«>ar each end and between them, on the same ijhafi, nil ordinary lly-wheel. By connecting this cylinder with a chimney, . the apparatus will run perpetually, so we are informed.
