Steel Barrels Made to be Nested. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 17 April 1914
Steel Barrels Made to be Nested. A new and ingenious typo of steel bnrrol so designed as to permit compact storage when shipped empty is to bo placed on the market abroad.' The chief feature about tbis barrel is that it is matie in halves that are exactly similar, with flangee provided so that any two halves can bo boltod together to form a complete barrol.

REGISTRATION OF GRADE COWS. AN ASSOCIATION WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 17 April 1914
I REGISTRATION OF GRADE COWS. AN ASSOCIATION WANTED. There is an opportunity (remarks "Hoard's Dairyman") to establish registries for grade stock of the. dif ferent breads where records arc re quired before animals arc admitted to registration. ^For instance, a grade cow five yearn or more that 1ms pro duced 3601b. of fnt would be eligible to registration, but her progeny could not be registered until it had made the required amount of fat. If this sort of a registry were estab lished it would mean the elimination ol all poor producing animals ' and would in time produce an exceptional dairy breed, for ft would only be a matter of time when all inferior ani mals would be eliminated. An association for the above pur pose would be of immense benefit to the dairying industry, and would in no way be antagonistic to the good work the special breed associations are doing. The producing power of n cow 1^, after all, the real test of her value, and any movement to increase her producing pow...
