OVERCLAD SDHOOL-CHILDRENW. Dr Douglas, the Governiment inspec aor for schools in Morayshire, .has brought to light asLonishing details of how some school ohildren in the North of Scotland are almost smothered by the amount of- clothes they are corn pdelled to wear (says the "Evening Standard"). Dr Douglas states that he found 72 per cent of the children wearing such a mass of olothes as to be really dangerous th health. The worst case in this respect was a girl who had eleven layers of clothing, and the -teacher volunteered the information that there, was an -additional -overcoat in the cloak-room.- Dr Douglas also discovered that many of the children slept in the garments they wore outside. For-the coinvenience of collectors, the Postal authorities have decided to sell sc-ts of post.marked stamps in singles, pa'rs, fours, or up .to one hundred and tventies (full sheets),- as may be rr, quired. The sets or variations may be obtained on application-to the receiver, General Poet-offic...

AVENEL [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914

AVENEL The trustees of the Public Hall are to be complimented on their determination to make the hall worthy of their trust. A contract has been let to Mr J. Sparks to make some necessary improvements, which will include two coats of best ce ment cut in squares on the exterior of the hall, and the name Avenel Public Hall to take the place of name at present appearing in front, new door frames, escape doors and windows. In Decem ber a Benefit Race Meeting was held in aid of this work and with the money in hand. it is hoped that nearly all the needed improvements will be financially met. Up to the present the trustees have been somewhat hampered in the, matter of finance. It should be the bounden duty of every resident to render whatever assistance possible in regard to beautifying the ball and making it worthy of the district and a place worthy of public patronage. Other smaller and less influential towns are far ahead of us in this respect. The hon. sec , Mr P. J. Gleeson, is alive ...

FERMENTATION IN PAPER MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 February 1914

FERMENTATIaOn N IN rt n MAKING. Among the recent improvements- in handling paper-miakiig materials is a proces§ for cx-traoting the starch from cotton rags that are used in making linen papers. Practically all cotton aloth has some kind of a filler, and much oi this: is starch. In clippings fiom new cloth there is a considerable amount of starolihfiller. It was th practice formerly to soak the rags in i-rArm- ater, and then to boil them in n alkali solution. But the effect of dhe alkali on starch is very slow, as-it .auses the starch to swell up, :so that ,he. solution reaches the inner part of ;lie starch grains only with- difficulty. \ilt is. added in thie proper aiount to :onvert the' starch into a sohlule sugar. rlhiicl readily dissolves-.Ut of the fiire if the cloth and leaves it free of the iler The active prmbinplo. of the .ialt is the "'enllzyes" thatat attack the staroh* just as they do in the brewing roeess, and coldvert it into a form of iugar that 'is easily disposed of....

PROTEIN AND NUTRITION.. Discussing the investigations into the nutritive valub of proteins; Professor Wood-recently said all the British ex periments of a more practical nature had bben recalculated on 11 C".stuoatic basis byv Ingle. 'iroin them it ap peared that' increase of protein' in the ration, beyond somewhere between 1U lb. and 21b: per 10001b. live-weight per day of digestible protein, ocased to have any direct influence on increase in live reight. Tlhey mnight fairly conclude. then, that about 21b. of protein pr!r 1000 lb. live-weight per day war suffi ':ent for a fattening ox. This amotunt was repeatedly excecded in'most of i he districts where beef production was a staple iidustry, the idea being to pro drico farmyard manure rich in nitroge. T'I e ecoruimy of this lnetllol of arig m!enting fihe fertility of the land ans very doubtful. Protein was the most expensive colnstituenti of an animal's dietary.

THE NEW FARMER. SCIENTIFIC ADVANCE [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 February 1914

. THE NEW FARMER. SCIENTIFIC ADVANCE If the "transitIon of hgriculture' 'which is thought to be in progress is to reach the more intensive state- de sired by reformers, it can only be in duced by the farmer. Landlords may lead and persuade, but the farmer's belief in the form of cultivation which pays him best is the deciding factor: We have signs in plenty that the farmer is advancing along the lines of scientific theory (says a correspon dent of the "London Times,"). On paper and in the abstract, the higher the farming the greater- the profits for all concerned. The ideal to aim at is that Danish farm, much visited by English Farmers and landowners. which .yields an average profit of £4 an acre. It is clamietl that a net in come of £20,000 a year is made from its 5000 acres. At the other end ot the scale we may take a score of pro perties on English wolds and heavy lands, as well as on Norfolk sands. which do not yield a profit of 5/ an acre or near it. In theory,. grass ais the -...

MEAT PROBLEM IN ARGENTINA. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 February 1914

MEAT PROBLEM IN ARGENTINA. The shortsighted policy of indiscrism inato slaughter of licelv bulls and cow' in Argentina, says a South American authority. has resulted in a statd of affairs that will he nothing short ot a national disaster unless legislation is brought into force to preserve some remnant of the once extensive herds. In the month of February last, 32.990: iadvof cattle were slaughtered. () `,hose, 15,406 were cows. It is now necessary for Argentina cattle breeders to replenish their diminished stock. Very recently 20,000 head of cattle were driven on to Argentina soil from Para guay. ' The price of meat is steadily rising day by day, and some of the rural markets of the province of Buenos Ayres' are actually displaying horse flesh. for sale. The shortage of meat which' is being- felt' in Argentina is sti mulating enterprise in. other districts and nations, and soon Argentina may find her unknown competitors her 5 tessful rivals. -" A woman isn't content to be thought a...

DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 20 February 1914

DAIRY COWS. An American authority-says: If qua»n titss of milk is tile chief aim thlen the Holsteii would be the breed to select, as this breed of cows gives- more milk thap any of the others. Among the Shorthorns. there are many good milkinig animnals but the beef characteristics have crept'into the blood of most Shorthorns and on tlmhewhole they cannot be considered a profitable milking breed. In other words, they are primarily a beef breed and to at tempt to get milk- from them. is work ing against nature. The' breed of cows that will produce the most milk per acre will undoubtedly b2 the Hol stein; the Channel Isle cattle will pro duce-the rimost milk and fat; The mu, ount of milk or fat prcduced per acre depends of' course upon the character of the cows kept, the kinds of feld used, and tlfe attention. paid to the herd. We would not advise crossing Jerseys with Shorthorn cows unless the prOcess is kept uip. .If a Jersey bull were kept at the head of thl herd for a series (,t ye...
