A Darwinian Example. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 29 April 1892
A Darwinian Example. A remarkable ease of disease is at present engrossing the attention of medical men in Austria. There is lying at the hospital of the city of Isbhl a patient afflicted with a bony excrescence protruding from between the lower cervical vertebra. The excresence has the form of a horn, and is round and straight, with a diameter of one and a half inch. It has grown to a length of about eigh inches, and would probably have been much longer by this time but for the fact that the point was broken ofeseveral times to be sent to the pathologic institute of Vienna for examination. There is no feeling in the horn, the breaking off of the points, which the patient did himself, causing him no pain whatever. At the root where the horn is attached to the spinal column it is soft and movable, but it rapidly grows hard and is like bone at a eshrt distance from the root.
Science of the Brain. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 29 April 1892
Science of the Brain. Paul Broca'e discovery that the brain is a eongeries of organs, each having ite special function is being confirmed by later re. aearches. Prof. Mathias Dural has had the opportunity of determining-by the post mortem examination of eleven persona who, during life, had been accidentahly deprived of the faculties of speech or the memory of words or certain letters of the alphabet-that the faculties of speech and memory of words rebjde in the second and third con. volutions of the brain. In each ease ex amined there had been injury or disease of these convolutions, destroying their funo. tions. Comparing Gambetta's brain with that of the late Dr. tlirtillon, an eminent statesman, Dural and Chudzinsky found that in the brain of the former the third or "Broaa'e convolution"-as the speech. centre is now called-is extremely developed, while in Bertillion'e it is reduced to its most simple expression. Gunbetta was active and loquacious; eortillion reticent and retiring...

And Ferinbrook turned suddenly to to the huge mirror opposite, and, beckon ing his companion to follow his example, the two men stood looking at each other for several acconds. " You see how minutely we resemble each other. How easy for the criminal to step into the shoes of the honest man. Why one's bosoim friends would be at a Ic:s to say positively which the thief, and which the gentleman, under the circum stanrces." "'You are right," returned Victor ltlspraot.

The Butter Value of Milk. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 29 April 1892
The Butter Value of Milk. One of the most astonishing things in the world is the looseness with which business connected with agrioulthral pursuits has beenconducted. We have asked many men in our lives what the value of individual cows in the herd was, and they did not know. We have said: You keep your cows for the butter they make, do you t Yes, of course, would be the reply. Special atten. tion was given to butter making, and yet these people could not tell whether a cow was paying a profit or making a loss all the time, Other kinds of business are not con. duoted in that way. But the full milk creamery system has been conducted in the same way. The system of the oountry grocery store which buys all kinds of batter at the same price has been practiced in the sreameries in buying milk. Yellow milk, white milk and blue milk have all brought the same price. It is all wrong. Hold the individual cow rerponsible and hold the milk producer responsible. If the cow pays, keep her; if she ...

W\hen eurrounded by all that 1 loved, I looked upon life as a radiant truth, Nor dreamt that I e'er coutd be moved With the feverish desire to rcam o'er the world Which has since my poor soul to dark misery buried. For when to the place of my birth I came And asked for my loved and my own, The triends of the past scarcely remembered my name The soulsof my dear ones had flown.
Natural Dairy Cows. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 29 April 1892
Natural Dairy Cows. " There is no such thing as a natural dairy cow. A good dairy cow is an artificial creation." So says a writer. If every cow is not a natural dairy cow we do not under. stand what natureis. It will not answer to point to the limited milk production of the wild cow to show that nature did not intend her for milk. It is true that the wild cow has been improved, but ehe has been im proved on the direct line of nature. The domestio animal is given an opportunity to do all that nature endowed her with the ability to do. She gets more food, and, upon the whole, better food than she gets in a wild state. After admitting that the milk pro docing machinery of the now has been enlarged and strengthened-not artificially, however-it is the better feeding that does the business, When the cow does not pay, the fault is attributable to bad feeding, if the cow is a good one., Thereis nothing connected with the dairy cow that is of more importance than feeding, Give her the food ...
Farmer How to Get the Cream. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 29 April 1892
Farmer IIow to Get tihe Cream. Shallow setting furnishes a large surface :posure of the milk to the air and to the ,attom and sides of the vessel, conditions vhich are very favorable to the cosgulation :: fibrin, and which would be expected to .ive a slow and imperfect creaming. In reality this is the case, as milk set in this manner is not usually skimmed until after thirty-six hours. By this time some acid is developed which tends to neutralise the effects of the fibrin clots so that a fair de. gree of creaming is obtained, not, however, ?s good as may be obtained by ice setting in ten hours, if the most favorable conditions are obtained. There is a very general opinion that cold materially interferes with the separation of cream when shallow setting is used. This is a mistake; cold favors the separation of steam more in shallow pane than in deep cans, as the former present more surface to the milk than the latter, and are therefore more conducive to the clotting of the fibrin. th...
