WATER COOLED CUPBOARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 6 November 1907

WATER COOKED CUPBOARD. In Southern California, where the temperature in summer Is US to 125 de grees F., in the shade, it becomes al most impossible to keep food in a sani tary condition. A curious device used by many families there is known as a water cupboard. A plain cupboard with an ordinary door is made by a carpenter of what ever size is desired. The frame is then covered with hesslan or thin sacking. A shallow pan nearly as large as the top of the cupboard Is then placed --n the top and four strips of woollen cloth' : or flannel long enough to extend down | on each side of the cupboard are satu rated In the water, as shown in the tic- ' companylng cut. . J The hesslan absorbs the water from the woollen strips and the evaporation I keeps the contents of the cupboard cool. ' The cupboard of necessity must stand - where the water can drain off. - Many ? people place them on the ground under ! trees, or in some shady place. Care ' -must be taken to ' keep the pan sup- J piled wit...

CUTTING LARGE TIMBER WITH A HAND SAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 6 November 1907

? ? ? I CUTTING LARGE TIMBER WITH A HAND SAW. To cut across the narrowest amount of wood Is the most effective, or at least the most rapid way of cutting with a hand-saw (saps a correspondent of the 'Woodworkers' Review'). This lact is not generally recognised; or, to be more precise, it is usually ignored. ^ For instance, let a six-Inch board be sawn flatwise; that Is, so the hoard will be cut across the broad side; than afterward turn the board Up -m edge and cut it off by-sawlng the short way through it . It will be found that on ah average, the 'board can be cut In two m nen nuicicer -wtien the teeth pass the ebon, way . through the . board. Therefore, the lesson to be thus learned Is, that when Bivflng a large piece' «f wood, to so use the saw as to avoid the teeth all touching across a brjnd surface at once, and to contrive to make' as short a cut 'as possible. In order to do this in the most practical manner, *. Blecc^et. timber ot.very Considerable corns* and ' sawing to a I...

Lucerne Experiments at Wagga. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 6 November 1907

Xmcenie Excerlmenta at W«egsu Experiments with various manures applied to lucerne were carried out at ,'tfce Wagga Experimental Farm during the past year. The cropa were grown on six %-aere lots, two of which re ceived no manure. One of the latter was limed, while the other was not. These were retained as dhe:k plots. With the exception of the plot manured of manuring and liming was to increase the yield. The results showed that superphosphate on limed land gave the best returns, anij the addition of a half-cwt. sulphate of potash to tbe superphosphate did not benefit the yield, while, when applied alone, the result was less satisfactory. No l block, limed land, no manure, yielded 50% ewt. of lucerne per acre; No. 2, limed land, with 2 cwt. per acre super., 63 cwt. per acre: No. 8, limed land, with 2 cwt. super, and H cwt. sulphate of potash, E2g cwt; No. 4, limed land, no manure, 36 cwt. per acre; No. 6, unllmed land, with 2 cwt. .super., ts% cwt| per acre; No. 6, un lin»ed land, w...

THE DAIRY BACTERIA AND DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 6 November 1907

THE DAIRY, BACTERIA AWD DATRTIITG. (Professor It W^ Coan, in- 'CoHhtry?. j ...... .GenUeman,' New York.) '; Twenty years aeo, practically nothing was known about the relation of bacterta to miik. During the two decades the. whole dairy Industry .bas'^be^n more or less 'revolutionised by the science of bac teriology. Tbere is hardly a phase of dairying to-day, from the cow-shed to the completed product on the tab:e of the consumer, which has cot been moie or less completely changed by bocterlo- ;.j logical knowledge. ! The first point to be noticed In this 1 connection is that when milk is secreUd I from the gland of a. healthy cow, it con tains no bacteria. This has been detei mined by a lone scries of experiment' showing, it is true, various lesulus. but the conclusion seems to be sure that the healthy animal produces steillc milk. If the cow is diseased, and especially if her udders are diseased, this is no longer true. The sterile condition of freshlysecre ted milk Is, however, o...
