CHEESE EXPERIMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914

CHEESE EXPERIMENTS. I should like to call attention to some cheese experiments which have recently been carried out at the Kil marnock Dairy School on the mak ing of cheese" from different qualities of milk (writes Mr. Primrose Mc Connell in the "Dairy" London). The experiments were for the purpose of., testing what proportion of cheese could be got from milk containing varying quantities of cream, an:l it wus found, as one would naturally expect it to be found, that the whole milk fairly rich in fat gave very much more cheese than that from ■which some fat had been extracted, varjing down until the lowest was obtained from skim-milk. It was found, apart from this, however, that the cheese of the high est proportion of fat also held a fairly large proportion of water, and that in the case of the skim-milk cheese less water was held, or it dried up very quicMy. Thus it sim ply exemplified the old saying about "roquiring an axo to cat a skim-milk cheese with." Several breeds of cattle...

What Our Forefathers Ate [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914

What Our Forefathers Ate A German paper publishes an in teresting article on the lost dishes of the Middle Ages. It seems that the art of cooking has declined, and that is in part due to the changing fashions in food. I For in.stancc, in Germany, In the Middle Ages many vegetables were oaten which have long since dis appeared from the table, such as violet leaves, mixed with young net tles, thistles, and green wheat, and boiled hemp seeds. Salads were made of mallow leaves, celery roots, and purslano, mixed with salt and pepper, for oil was almost unknown. Olive oil was considered to smack of effeminacy and Italian luxury. Horse radish sauce was used instead. The origin of saurerkraut is lost in antiquity. But it was certain ly invented by the German haus frau long before cauliflowers or arti chokes or potatoes were known. The potato revolutionised tho fare of the poor, who had formerly to rely on the roots of wild plants. The variety ct meats was larger, including beavers, and in t...

A SACRED CLAM SHELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914

A SACRED CLAM SHETX. The clever priests of China often insert tiny images of Buddha with in the shells of a living clam, which are left undisturbed for about a year. At the expiration of that time the images are covered with mother of pearl to such an extent that they appear to have grown in this natural manner. Tho Chinese people hold these shells in great reverence, believing that Buddha dwells within them. However, should a Christian chance to look upon one of the shells, it has nc further value to them, as its charm is supposed to have left it.

AMAZING COST OF FLYING AEROPLANES. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914

AMAZING COST OF FLYING AEROPLANES. It Is estimated tliat the fuel and oil costs of an aeroplane of high power run into about £1 per hour of flight. We now have from 120 to 350 aeroplanes, and as each niach'nj is expected to do about 250 hours' flying nnnually, the sig nificance of high fuel costs will be gin to be appreciated. It w'ill be measured by a fuel and oil bill of about £30,000 a year at retail prices. Those who read the signs expect the rute of increase of air craft to continue to 1,000 aero planes, and many dozons of airships within the next two years, meaning probably a fuel and oil bill of a quarter of a million sterling. It has been further estimated that on the above supposition of develop ment aeronautics may be expected within two years to take one-sixth part of"the fuel consumption of all the motor-vehicles in Britain. Of the total consumption, estimated by Mr. Oritohley at about 100,000,000 gallons a year, it seems that 20, 000,000 gallons are used 1-y the om nibu...

Two gentlemen walking together caini by a stately now building. " What i> magnificent structure!" said one. " Yes," replied tho other; " but I can not bear to look at it, often as I past it." "That's strange; why not?"

TO MINIMISE FLIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914

TO MINIMISE FlilES. A French journal states that it has been found that flies have a great objection to the colour blue, and if tenements infested with flies arc washed with a blue instead of a white wash, flics will desert the place. In support of this the fol lowing instnnce is reported. A farmer had 170 cows housed in different sheds ; they were pestered with (lies, but ho observed that in one shed, the walls of which were a blue tint, the cows were not wor ried. He therefore added a blue colour to the lime with which he washed the walls of his buildings, and from that time the flies havt deserted the place. Tho following formula is used by him for the wash To twenty pal Ions of water add 101b. of slacked lime und lib. of ultramarine.

DIDN'T WATCH HIS WATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914

DIDN'T WATCH IIIS WATCII. In a subway crowd not long ago a New York man was "touched" for his watch. The watch was not intrinsically valuable, but the New York man wanted it bock for sen timental reasons, and inserted divers advertisements in the papers offer ing a reward for the return of the watcli nnd "no questions asked." The "dip" who had "lifted" tho watch saw the advertisements and concluded to take the reward. He called on tho New York man, hand' ed him the timepiece, and demanded tho money. The owner of the watch was only too happy to give it to him. After examining the watch no returned it to his pocket and handed over fivo ten-dollar bills. The "dip" pocket i ed the money and departed. There was little said. A few minutes later tho New Yorb man reached for liis watch. But it was gone.

"BOBS" ALL OVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914

" BOnS " ALL OVER. Lord Roberts, when Commander in-Chief, was visiting a Northern city for the purpose of distribute ing war medals, and a brilliant company had assembled on the sta tion platform to greet the hero. Stepping from the train, one ot his first acts was characteristic of the man. Some distance away stood a man in the blue uniform- of the station police. On his breast was a small strip of ribbon, also blue, of the Egyptian medal. This little stripe, as may be guessed,, was anything but a conspicuous ob ject at a distance, but it appear ed to be the first thing to catcb the eye of the Commander-in-Chief. Stepping forward, he had a short chat with the delighted old sol dier, asking the name of his regi- [, ment, and so on. {. "That's Bob's all over," ejaculat- f ed another old warrior—"a heart liki ( a helephant, a hevc like a 'awk !" i Tat and Jlike, just after their ar rival over here, went into a re staurant. On the table was a bowl of mustard, and Pat took a big spoonfu...
