MODERN CHEESE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 19 May 1914
-.MODERN CHEESE-MAKING. In ordinary work we have long been used to "pasteuring'' milk for the pur pose either of preserving it or of en suring good butter being made, This idea is -nor. being extended to the nianufaoture of cheese, and a "re search bulletin," issued by the Univer sity of Wisconsin, gives the result of two years' experiments on this line. The milk is first of all "pasteurised" by raising it to a temperature'of from 160 deg. to 165 deg. Fahr. This, of course, is for the purpose of getting rid. of all deleterious microbes and taints which may be now non-microbic. After this the milk is acidulated by a very small quantity of hydrochloric aold, and then an allowance of pure bacteria culture or "starter" is added -the said ,culture being the ordinary lactic acid bacillus. After this the rennet is added,. and the whole process now goes fo1rward in a straight metho dical manner. Under the old methods it must be-acknowledged that" in spite of all the :advances that have been...

He makes passionate accumulations of beads. He yearns to see his brown wife desert her "tapa" petticoat and wreath of flowers for the .trumpet tones of a_ print in "Turkey .,red." He finds extraordinary plea sure in twanging the Jew's harp. Cap Stain Strasburg, who has an entertain ing article in the January "Lone Hand" on "Trading in the South Seas" declares that trade goods are about .the most weird collection of goods ever brought together in one ship." It was in 1884 that he made his first South Seas venture-at that date, the simple islander had not, of course, acquired "the .more modern taste for gramlo phones.
