THE DAIRY. THE AERATION OF MILK. RECTIFYING BAD FLAVORS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 12 June 1908
THE DAIRY. THE AERATION OF MILK, RECTIFYING BAD FLAVORS, The "aeration" of milk la an Important matter. The term means the applica tion of air with a vle\v of dispelling any odor that the mill: may possess. It is a well known fact that each cow's milk has certain cha racteristics entirely its own. Although' perhaps not perceptible to the average person, no two cows give millc exactly alike in flavor and aroma. This characterletk; is called a "cowy" odor,, end there Is no method of altogether pre venting it, however carefully the milk-* ing process bp carried out. This "cowy * smell is particularly noticeable, in millc straight from the cow, arid, of course, when still warm', the smell disappearing upon the milk getting cool. At all events, it is thon practically unnotlceable. "WhUo this is quite natural, there are other odors found wheh are both objectionable . and unnatural. They aro' caused by, the use of certain foods. The peculiar part of this is that the odor either ap pears wh...
CLEANING WHITE GLOVES. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 12 June 1908
CLEANING WHITE GLOVES. There is no excuse for not wearing white gloves in the morning,' because to keep .them clean is so little trouble and absolutely no expense. Tn the afternoon or evening tho glovos should bo put to soak overnight in wator that is only warm, but very ?feoapy. Any good white laundry soap servos the purpose. In cases where tho gloves aro extremely dirtv soap may ho rubbed on them directly, but this sometimes stiffons tho leather. After lying in tho water until tho next day tho gloyes should bo put into a fresh soapy bath and squeezed, not rubbod, under water. Tho soaking will have loosened tho dirt, and this ono hath should be sufficient cleansing. If it is not, put the gloves through anothor soany water and then rinse in warm, not hot, water, always squeez ing and never rubbing. When tho last vestige of grimo is removed, spread out the gloves on a soft towel, pulling them into Bhape. Every hour or so afterward they should bo taken down and rubbed between tho hand...
STAMP-LICKING MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 12 June 1908
STAMP-LICKING MACHINES. Stamp-licking, tho office boy's bane, is to bo abolished by a now invention -a machine which places the stamp on tho letter without any human aid be yond the pressing of;a lover. Tho macliino, the inventor claims, is unbreakable, so it can be left in the street all niglit-which means that it will never be top late to get a stamp. Tho stamp-licker, which will pro-' bably bo in general use in England in October, is enclosed in a species of cupboard. .Altogether it looks very similar to an automatic machine. The envelope ia put into a little slot. One, two, or three pennies, ac cording to .tho number of stamps re quired, are placed in slots, and a lover is pressed down. Tho: envelope is withdrawn-rand, there Tare tho Btamps upon it. ~ The changing of a finger on a dial will causo stamps of any value required to bo stuck on the envelope. No base or foreign coins arc accepted by tho machine. All' coins aro weighed on a balance in tjie interior; and if they are fou...

SCIENCE AND THE SPIRIT I WORLD. I SIR OLIVER LODGE'S REMARK ABLE STATEMENT. "Like oxcavators engaged in boring a tunnel from opposite ends, amid tho roar of water and other noises, wo are beginning to hoar now and then tho strokes of tho pickaxes of our comrades 011 tho other side." In these dramatic words Sir Oliver Lodge, F.R.S., Prin cipal of Birmingham University, made some astonishing statements recently at a meeting of tho Psychical Research Society .concerning secret and exhaus tive tests which that society had made in connection with Spiritualism. The principal mediums, or "antomatista," as Sir Oliver termed them, have boon Mrs. Pipor and Mrs. Vorrall. "Tho most important sot of phe nomena are those of automatic writing and talking," continued Sir Oliver Lodgo, quietly; and then, amid o broathlesa pause, he went on: 4'And what do wo find ?

PEOPLE KNOWN BY THEIR WALK. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 12 June 1908
PEOPLE KNOWN BY THEIR WALK. "There's a conceited man coming down the street," said the observant girl in tlio group on a corner. "How do.I know? By his walk. I can tell the chief trait in any person's charac ter by watching him or her walk. "For instance, if a man walks with a heavy lift to his hips he's sure to bo obstinate. If ho sinks down a little on his lieols ho has a comfortable attitude toward life and the world in general; in fact, ho's a bit lazy. That woman .coming,down tho street now is a gos sip. Anyone could tell that because of her mincing, fussy gait. Indecision is the chief characteristic of that wo man's character, across the street. Don't you see how she swings her foot rather hesitatingly in tho air before she puts it down? ' &lt; _ "The man who walks with his knees leading is sure to be of tho pious typo-tho disagreeably pious type, I mean. You see that old fellow who is crossing tho road with his stomach seeming to lead tho rest of him-well, of.course, ...
TESTING EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 12 June 1908
TESTING EGGS. Testing eggs for fertility is not a difficult matter, and while there are lamps and appliances enough for this purpose, useful whore large numbers of eggs are incubated,, a - very simple arrangomont can be mado by anyone which will answor the purpose quit*: satisfactorily. In fact, eggs may ho tested by the aid of nothing more thnn a bright light and a dark room, holding the eggs 0110 at a ,timo between the eye and the light, with the fingers and hands arranged to act as a screen to keep the direct light away from the eye. This method works all right with some, but a better practice is to take a piece of dark coloured cardboard about nine by ten inches' square, and cut a hole in the centro the shape of an egg, but a little smaller in size. The eggs are placed against' tho hole one by one, broad end up, an&lt;l:held before a bright light in a dark room. In this way the contents of tho eggs can bo readily soon, and fertile eggs at once distin guished from the inf...
THE MISCHIEVOUS CROW. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 12 June 1908
THE MISCHIEVOUS CROW. While crows aro credited with con siderable cunning, they have really more intolligonco than is genorally known, ns may he gathered from this I short life-story of an adopted town | bird. Tho young crow was found help less by tho wayside, and tonderly car ried to town. Ho quickly took to his now quarters, and by and bye even bocame rather dictatorial in his p\nn nor. While his proper residence was a wooden house in tho back garden, ho spent much of his time in tho kn&lt;hon. After a short battlo with tho domestic cat, .a lasting peace was entored 011. though pus9y often suffered not a Utile from'tho tricks of "Jock,"' who delight ed in pulling its tail and stealing its . fish and other dainties. Yet this crow had a wholesome terror of strange cats, and always alarmed the household whenevor ho saw any in tho back yard. Ho had another peculiarity, that of. hiding, quito unnecessarily, a store of food in the garden. "Jock"-was par ticularly wroth with sea-...
THE WISDOM OF EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 12 June 1908
THE WISDOM OF EXPERIENCE. There was no doubt in tho minds of the Hobart family that young James had a remarkable gift. It remained for an obscure uncle from tho Capo to drop a word of caution and of worldly wisdom. "You say bo's wondorful far-scoing, and can tell folks just how things are going to turn out?" ho inquired. "Yes, it seems so," said James's adoring mother. "Well, now, if you want him to bo tho most onnop'lnr man anywhere round, you just let him foretell and prophesy and forecast," remarked tho old undo, grimly. "If you want him to keep a f&lt;w friends you must shunt him off on to somo othor track. Lot him work out sums in his head. That's a harmless praotico."v "But why?" faltorsd tho mother. "Just this," answered tho authority from the Capo. "When ho prophesies tliings'll go wrong and they do go wrong, tho heft, of tho blattio'll bo laid straight on his shoulders. Wlion ho says they'll go right, and they do,, folks'11 bo too busy enjoying themselves to remembe...

CONCEITED YOUTHS. ' COOLING WORDS FOB HOT HEADS. , Remember tliat . tho world, is older than you are by several years; that for thousands of years it has been so full of smarter ana better young'mon than yourself that their feet stuck out of the dormor windows, that when they died tho old globe wont whirling on, and not one man in ton million went to tho funeral or even heard of the death.
