HOW TO PREVENT ACID STOMACHS AND FOOD FERMENTATION. BY A STOMACH SPECIALIST. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 24 February 1914
HOW TO PREVENT ACID STOM ACHS AND FOOD FER MENTATION. By a STOMACH SPECIALIST. As a specialist who has spent many years in the study and treatment of stomach troubles, 1 have been forced to the conclusion that most people who complain of stomach trouble possess stomachs that are absolutely healthy and normal. The real trouble, that which causcs all the pain and difficulty, is acid in the stomach, usually dun to, or aggravated by, food fermen tation. Acid irritates the delicate lining of the stomach and food fer mentation causes wind, which distends the stomach abnormally, causing that full bloated feclinp. Thus both acid and fermentation interfere with and retard the process of digestion. The stomach is usually healthy and normal, but irritated almost past endurance by these foreign elements—acid and wiod lu all such eases—and they comprise over go per cent, of all stomach difficulties—the first and only step necessary is to neutralise the acid and stop the fermentation by taking in...

RANCID BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 24 February 1914
RANCID BUTTER. ' Bacteria of curtain kinds aro un doubtedly tlio most oifeusiv'o ngents iii making butter rancid, but it may also bo caused by oxidation, duo to tho ac tion of light and air. Any kind of un cleunlincss in tho dairy will at onoo tend to produco rancidity in tho pro duce. Tho uso of impuro wator for washing up tho dairy utensils, failure to wash tho butter in tho grain suffi ciently, tho use of milk from airty, cows, or milk which contains colostrum as yielded by froshly-oalved cows, all theso causes liolp to mako butter rancid.

It can easily bo diccovercd wiether tho wash ing of butter lias been properly por formod or not; all that is necessary is to press gently, but firmly, on a pi ecu of tho butter with ...
