SCIENCE NOTES. Developments in Electrical Research. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 24 January 1914

SCIENCE NOTE,. .Developments in Electric Research, It las long been conceded that elec tricity offers a wider field for the ambi tious student than any other, but even the wildest flights of fancy never reached to such heights as reality shows us in some of the latest discoveries. It is said that we are to have electric power without circuits, and that storage batleries, trolleys and all of the most ap proved appliances will be reconstructed out of existence. Under the new condi tiont a couple of thousand :volts passed though the human frame will be esteemed a pleasant sensation; whereas, at pre sents two thousand will kill at a flash. The wildest dreams of the extremist alchemist fade into insignificance by the side ofthe possibilities that now now loom up ahead of us.

MILK TRANSPORT BY MOTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 24 January 1914

MILK TRANSPORT BY MOTOR. About twenty farmers in the Yea don (England) district have recently held a meeting to consider the advis ability of conveying milky from their farms at Yeadon to Leeds by means of motor delivery vans. The farmers were rather surprised to know that the cost of running a motor vehicle fully loaided is very little different to the cost of running it empty. As an illustration of what motor-vans can do, it was pointed out that for the last three years a mail-van in the district had covered' sixty miles a day, which, in addition to relief work at night, makes a total of 800 to 900 miles per week, and *in the three years that the van has been in service only one train has been miss ed. The farmers were favourably im pressed with the possibilities of such a service, and it seems likely that in the near future some co-operative motor delivery scheme will be inau gurated which will collect the milk from the various farms .and deliver it at Leeds. Elephants in 'the In...

A CHINESE HEADACHE CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 24 January 1914

A CHINESE HEADACHE CURE. What struck me most on my first introduction • to John Chinaman. in Hong Kong were the peculiar lumps nearly every Celestial had at the back of his neck. I puzzled over the reason for these unsightly) swellings for several days. I thought it must ,be a sort of goitre, and one day the mystery was unfold ed in the street, in broad daylight. A Chinaman, looking very seedy- perhaps he had been overnight in an opium den--approached a countryman who bore, the signs of a Chinese doc tor, and said something to him, as though detailing his symptoms. The doctor at once made the pa tient sit down on a. stool, and, go ing behind him, he began pulling the skin of the neck near each ear out as far as it would stretch, letting it go again with an audible "slap." I questioned one of the Chinamen who were employed at the barracks as to, the meaning{ of this perform ance. Pointing to the man who was so willingly permitting the doctor to take such liberties with his neck, the ...

Queen.scliff Met&hodist Chu rch. The anniversary of the above church was held on Sunday, when two services were conducted by Canon Nash. The church was crowded on each occasion, and the preacher gave two long-to-be-re membered sermons. A special appeal in connection with the anni versary was also made, in lieu of a bazaar. Envelopes were carefully distributed among the church mem bers, and they were requested to place in them their ' Gift for. Christ.' The response was good. All the returns are not yet in hand, but after paying all expenses there will be X50 clear. The trustees reggrd this. as being most satisfac tory. On Monday night a fine lecture on 'Out in the Far East,' was given by the Rev. J. H. Cain, of the Central Mission, Melbourne. It was delivered to a select few, and thoroughly enjoyed and appre ciated.

FEEDING COWS FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 24 January 1914

FEEDING COWS FOR MILK. In order to obtain really practical ly useful information, it is a good rule to first find out a, man who is an acknowledged success- in his dis trict, -and then get fro?.' him a des cription of how he does things. At the request of the "London Dairy," a well-known city supplier of mills gives the following particulars ofl how he feeds his herd of 50 cows : This is shortly our manner of feed ing .some 50 cows,, whose daily yield of milk is bringing in a gross weekly return of about £40 sterling deliver ed in London. At 6 a.m. they have mixture of brewers' grains and malt cilms, with some mixed meal mad - from oats and peas. As soon as milk ing is over they have a foddering o' good hay, and when the, milking staf has breakfasted a11 except newly calved cows are turned out to water for, say, twenty minutes. When tief up they, are served with a feed of hay, and at 11 o'clock with wholE mangolds, the small quantity (madE necessary by scarcity) being varied accordi...

THE FARM. HANDLING MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 24 January 1914

THE FARM. HANDLING MANURE. A progressive young Swiss dair -. man, who called at our office a few::. days ago,, told us that some time ago he purchased a manure spreader and found it the best investment he ever made. It is not the first time we heard the same remark. In facr, if any person ever bought a manure spreader and was disappointed at the result he is yet to be heard from. Handling the manure on a dairy or stock farm involves a large amount of effort. The average dairy co ; voids about twelve tons of liquid and solid manure in a year, to say no thing of the bedding and waste litter that must be disposed of. In a fifty-' cow dairy this amounts to over six hundred tons a year. In, most in stances, ,of course, much, of this man ure is dropped in the pastures, there by saving the trouble of handling it, but with the growing tendency to ward year-round dairying and soiling the cows are confined, and the large amount of manure must be disposed of in one way or another. It is an ast...
