PIOUS AND COURAGEOUS GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 22 May 1914

PIOUS- a.xd courag ecus GENERAL. Charles George Gordon, who died on January .26, 18S5,. t wo days be fore his fifty-second birthday, had been through more than almost any other British officer, and through out his whole career ho displayed the same marvellous qualities. Deep ly religious, ho was a constant stu dent of the Bible, and to him the highest course ot conduct was the obly one possible. He was present at the taking of the Redan during the Crimean j War, and a few years later was sent to China, where he took a prominent part in putting an end to the civil war which had broken out there, owing to the appearance °f a "heavenly leader," who led .what was known as the Taiping Rebellion. In helping to put an end to this Gordon went about, even i'1 battle, with no weapon but a light, cane, for he never felt any iear j death, and his followers believed : that he bore a charmed life. IT,S | Power, indeed, was most clearly dis- i played when leading men of alien j r'u'°' and no Europ...

Longest Aerial Cableway. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 22 May 1914

Longest Aerial Cableway. V. A remarkable aerial cableway, about 75 miles long1, is soon to be built across the mountain, barriers separating the famous Vale of Kash mir, iii" the Indian native^ State of Kashmir, from the plains of the Punjab. It will be by far the long est cableway in the world, says a consular rcporl on this subject ; the longest at present being one of twenty-two miles- in- Argentina. The plan of constructing an ordinary railway into Kashmir lias been pro nounced impracticable on account: of the loose conglomerate nature of the soil in this part of the Hima layas, which causes innumerable slips and the falling of huge boulders into Kashmir, extending about 200 miles between Rawalpindi and Srin agar, was only built witli the great est diflicult.v, and witli much loss of life due to slips; while its mainte nance costs the Kashmir Govern ment about £100 a mile per annum, chiefly spent in repairing slips and bridges: The projected cableway is likely to cost about £303...

One of the rules of war is that when a defeated araiy is driven (,xnr a- neutral frontier it must lay (1 is arms ere it penetrates in - to .;..-Jleacef«l_ country.

MILKING MACHINE TESTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 22 May 1914

MILKING JIACHINL" TESTS. Bulletin 353 of the New. York Ex periment Station at Geneva reports extended tests of the efficiency of the milking machiue corap ired with hand milking ; and tinds that it does not measurably influeuce the yield of milk. That is, cows in the station herd milked alternately by hand and by the machine in 71 full lactation periods showed no more fluctuation in 3 ield due to the method of milking than would naturally occur from year to year in a herd milked continuous ly hy hand. As the station has already proved that clean milk can be produced by the machine if simple precautions are.^ob served, the use or non-use of the machine would seem to be merely an economic question whose factors are cost of installation and up-keep, availability and cost of labour, s;ze of herd and general convenience. The bul'etin does not discuss many of these factors, but gives some care fully collected data njgnrding tlie time necessary in milking by the two methods, figures which ...

THE DAIRY EXPERIMENTS WITH CREAM SEPARATORS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 22 May 1914

THE DAIRY EXPERIMENTS WITH CREAM SEPARATORS. .The general opinions held -with re gard to "speed and temperature dur ing'the employment of separators have been put to test at"the Experi mental Station of the University' of Missouri. The experiments showed that an increase , in the speed of a separator leads to a higher propor tion of skimmed milk, and to a high er percentage of fat in the- cre3m, and,, within ordinary limits, the higher the speed the less is the amount of fat remaining ia the skim med. milk. . . It is further declared that, con trary to general belief, a reduction in the temperature of the milk oc casions a. higher proportion of skim med milk and a small amount of cream with, a higher percentage of fat. The effect is said to.be still fur ther emphasised when the separator is adjusted to deliver cream with a high fat content. i A third conclusion whicn the in vestigators. adduced was that the amount of fat in cream varies in di rect proportion ' to the composition of ...
