OF COURSE. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914

OF COURSE. 'Will. you allow me to ask you a question?' interrupted a man in the audience. 'Certainly, sir,' said the lecturer. 'You have given us a lot of figures about inumigration, increase of wealth, the growth of trusts, and all that,' said the man. 'Let's see what you know about figures yourself. How do .,n find the greatest common divisor?' Sh:wly and deliberately the orator Z(~k' a glass of water. Then he pointed his finger st·raighmt at the questioner. Lighlitning flashed from his eyes. and he replied, in a voice that made the gas jets quiver : 'Advertise for it, you ignoramusl' The audience cheered and yelled and sta?nped, and the wretched men who had asked the onestion crawled out of the hall a total wreck.

THE DAIRY. FEEDING GOOD and BAD MILKERS [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914

THE DAIRY. FEEDING GOOD and BAD MILKERS A cow requires food whether she i, milking or not. The amount of food necessary to maintain a dry cow ir fair condition, so that she will nei ther lose nor gain in weight, repre sents what is called her "m::inten ance requirement." The maintenance requirement of health- cows of simi lar weight does not vary much. If a cow is milking, however, she must consume and digest food in excess ol her mainten nce requirement. Other wise she will lose in weizht. The food consumed by a cow yielding milk is thus utilised for two different pur poses. O:ie part is required for main tenance, aod this mnyv be set down as working expenses. The other part is utilised to fill. the milk pail--' i: the raw material from wh;h n "I- ia produced.

THE FARM AND DAIRY. CHEDDAR CHEESE FROM PASTEURISED MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914

THE FARM AND DAIRY. CHEDDAR CHEESE FRCM PAS TEURISED MILK. The presence of inferior cheddar cheese on the mirket, and the lac'k: of uniformity which characteriscs the product of the present average cheese factory, is due primarily to the vari able quality of the milk supply from different farms. In an attempt to produce cheese of uniform quality from milh of variable acidity which is often contaminated with undesirable bacteria, cheesemakers use methods which vary from day to day, care fully watching each vat at every stage of its manufacture and modify ing the process to meet the condi tions. Even then the quality and also the yield of cheese varies from day to day. In an endeavour to devise a pro cess for treating milk daily at the: factory to bring it into practically a uniform condition for cheesemaking purposes, Professor Sammis, of the Dairy Department, has developed a process whereby the milk is pasteuri sed, and then brought to uniform acidity by the addition of a small amou...

SINGING CALMS INSANITY. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 13 March 1914

SING(ING CALMS INSANITY. A girl's sweet singing is calming into sanity, in the (County Hospital at Los Angeles, Cal., the mind of a man demented. Where drastic medi cal treatment has been powerless to effect- a cure. her melodious rendi tion of simple hymns and pastoral melodies is producing striking men tal improvement. The girl, a young nurse, is no cultured soprano, nor, perhaps, could she tell C from C on a musical staff, but her songs are songs of sympathy, and for more than a week have been the only influence that has comtrolled the patient. The young woman is a recent recruit at the hospital, and the man, but for a brain jangled by ~ild delusions, is a fine specimen of the American work man. Physicians and others watch ing the effect of the girl's voice on the patient declare that she holds out the only hope of his recovery. To impart a- delicate odour to linen, saturate a piece of cotton or blotting-paper with oil of lavender and place it among the varioua arti cdee,
