LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

- LIVING WITHOUT AIR OR FOOD. According to Macdonald, a Scotch naturalist of wide repute, the turtle is the strangest of all living things and the most unfathomable. He can live in the water as well as out of it, and can seemingly go for indefinite lengths of time without air or food or light. He is neither fish nor flesh nor fowl, and yet he has the characteristics of all three. As for his eating, it seems quite superflouous, for he can remain shut up in a barrel for a number of weeks and emerge at the end of the time apparently none the worse for the lack of food and light and air. iThe baby turtle seems also just as indifferent to its s&rroundings as its parents are. As soon as it comes forth from its egg it scuttles off to the sea. It has no one to teach or guide it. In its brain seems implanted the idea that until its armor becomes hard it has no defence against hungry fish, and so it seeks shelter in gulf -weed and feeds unmolested until its armor gets hard. By the tim...

CARELESSNESS THAT COSTS MILLIONS. Expensive Thoughtlessness. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

CARELESSNESS THATT COSTS MILLIONS./. Expensive Thoughtlessness, There are few people responsible for more harm in the world than the thoughtless person; and his plea, when the damage is done, "I didn't mean to," or "I didn't think," is poor consolation to those who have suffered from his thoughtless act. When, forty years and more ago, an old 'woman of Chicago left a lighted lamp in dangerous proximity to the heels of a cow, she little dreamt, we may foe sure, what appalling results would come from such a simple act of thoughtlessness. The fire which was started toy that over-turned lamp in the Chicago cow-shed swept in tor rents of devastating flame over the city, and ibefore the last ember was quenched it had reduced to charred ruins three and a-half square miles of streets. More than 17,000 build ings were destroyed, two hundred lives were sacrificed in the inferno of fire, 98,500 persons were rendered homeless, and damage was done to the extent of £38.000.000. In Kansas there ar...

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 28 March 1914

ROUND THE WORLD AFTER A HUSBAND. Regretting an engagement into which he had entered, a young Ger man named Dreher, an employe o£ a large Lancashire Arm, threw up his situation and left for Berlin. No news of any kind reached his fiancee, a widow of some means, and, as her re peated letters remained unanswered, she soon became very anxious, when her uneasiness suddenly gave place to rage on receipt of an anonymous com munication, telling her of her faithless lover's flight and informing her of his address. Next day, accompanied by her brother, she left for Berlin, only to find on her arrival that Dreher, no doubt scenting danger, had fled south ward. Through Austria she traced him to" Italy, where he was found in Rome, employed as waiter at a cafe. Over awed by the brother's threats, he con sented to accompany the couple to England, but contrived, on landing at Dover, to give them the slip. Once again was the hue and cry raised, but Drelief managed to reach New York with his pursuers...

SELECTING THE MILK COW. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 4 April 1914

SELECTING THE MILK COW. Nearly every good milk cow pos sesses certain points of conformation which indicate her milking qualities. The first important point is that she shall show a lean or bony form, with a sharp prominent backbone, ribs wide apart, sharp withers and incurv ing thighs. This indicates "dairy temperament," or, in other words, that she will thrn her feed into milk instead of beef. Next she will have a long, deep bar rel, well sprung ribs, broad muzzle, and a strong jaw, these points indica1 ing capacity for consuming larger amounts of feed. Third, she will show a hardy con stitution. which is indicated by a large heart girth, a deep chest, large open nostrils, and a large wind pipe and lung capacity. Fourth, a good dairy cow should have an udder of good size running well forward and hung up well be hind. The region of the pelvis or the hips is wide, as is also the space be tween the thighs as viewed from be hind, giving ample room for a large udder. A large udder is n...

THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 4 April 1914

THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. As an intance of the numbers of bacteria the common fly can carry, the following figures given by Pro fessor Easton may be cited: — He caught 100 flies in a kitchen, put, them in a pint of sterilised water and rinsed them about, and then examined | the water, and found that he had rais ed such a number of bacteria off that each fly averaged over 300,000. He next caught a similar number in the cow barn, and they averaged ovcv 800,000 each, another 100 In the pig pen. and they averaged over 1,000,000 J each. It may be said that when one goes j into a factory or house and finds many flies, one is immediately justi fied in condemning the sanitary sur roundings of such premises. One can appreciate the fact that in factories where flies abound it is next to Im possible to keep them out of the milk, and the seeding of the milk by the bacteria which they carry must be very appreciable. " The evil deeds of the fly need emphasising, as too many of us seem to think the fl...

The Retort Courteous. One day a learned professor was accosted by a very dirty little boot black: "Shine your shoes, sir?" The professor was impressed by the filthiness of the 'boy's face. "I don't want a shine, my lad," said he, ''but if you'll go and wash your face I'll give you a six.r>^nce." "A'richt, sir/' was the lad's reply, as he went over to a neighboring fountain and made his ablutions. Re turning, he held out his hand for the money. j "Well,, my lad," said the professor, J "you have earned your sixpence. Here j it is." I "I dinna want it, auld chap," return ed the boy, with a lordly air. "Ye keep ' it and get yer hair cut."
