Dairy Schools of Denmark. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 27 May 1892

Dairy Schools of Denlmark. What well directed training schools can accomplish is illustrated in the case of the dairy achools of Denmark. The government I has fcr years spens over ten thousand pounds annualy for the maintenance of dairy schools. The result has been an immense improvement in dairy products, and a lively demand ;or Denieh butter. Within twenty years Denmark's exports of butter have increase from four hundred and twenty thousand pounds to two millions six hun dred pounds per annum. An amusing strike has taken place at Hswick. The boys in the higher standards at the Wilrof'and Trinity Board schools threw off the pedagogig yoke and struck for shorter hours, fewer and easier lessons, and better teachers. In conformity wito established usage, the strikers paraded the streets in processional order, and they have expressed the resolution that there will be no " blacklegs" amongst them.

There is some thnrg sc persistent and so aggravating a bouta fact. It is an arguraent that cannot bs dispossd of by a fit of anger nor by simply going to sleep. It is there to calmly stare you in the face the next morning. And so we fancy the publicat. ian of the Kilmore Dairy Company's astonishing balance-sheet will, for the present, preclude the neessity of our saying anything further in favor of butter factories for this district. During the seven or eight months this establish ment has conducted operations it has manufactured 80,0o4 lbs. of butter at a profit of L64o as., enabling the Directors to declare a dividend of 4.o per cent., whilst reserving a corsiderable sum to meet liabilities, 2nd A pFromote still more succ.ssful results in the future ...

To Avoid Dyspepsia. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 27 May 1892

To Avoil Dyspepsia. It is a mistake to eat fact. astioation performed in haste most he imperfect even with the best teeth, and due admixture of the salivary secretion withthe food cannot take place. When a erode mama of inade quately creushed muscular fibre or undivided gelid material of any description is thrown into the stomach, it acts se a mechanical irritant and sets up a condition in the mucous membrance, lining that organ, which greetly impedes it it does not alto. gether prevent the procein of digestion. When the practice of eating quoikly and filling the stomach with nrprepared food is habitual, the digestive organ is rendered in. capable of performing its proper functions. Either a much larger quantity of food than would he necessary under natural conditions is ronoired, or the systevtm safer from the lack of nort.ihment. The matter may crea a small one, but it is not so. Just as the man mny go on for years with defective teeth, imperfectly mnsticatirg his food and wonderi...

Vinegar Injurious. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 27 May 1892

Finegar I?njruriozs. It is the general belief that vinegar is wholcsome and a ancessary adjunct to the diet of man. Oecaeionally, also, one bears of its being used daily in quite large quan titles as a remedy for obesity. As a matter of fact. this aei.l might well be dispensed with altogetl-er; and certainly, if used at all. it ehonld be with caution. As for its beinf ffiarcicus as a flesh-rerdcer, it is about as much so as typhoid fever or any severe disease, forit arts simply as a debili. toter and impoverishes the systcs. s3reral eaces cf death from its use in small glassfuls daily are on record. A little good vinegar is not likely to do any harm. and when rightly used it seems to faero the digestion of cerenain foo s. BUt, without doubt, as it is generally used, it does much more harm than good, and lemon juice would be far better.

Remedy For Headaches. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 27 May 1892

Remedy For Headaclies. When in certain painful affections the physician advtes the use of cold apuliea. tions, and if the effect from them is not pleasing, then that hot should be tried, the patient is likely to consider it rather an un-. certain sort of treatment, of doubtfol value either way. It is, irdeed, rather a curious thins that heat and-cold can often be used int?erchngeably with like effeets. Extreme heat will destroy the skin, and extreme cold will do the same. Now, headache is some. times relieved by bht appltieaonsdend yet in some inrStncee it apprr.vates the trouble. In case of the latter, oltentimes the cold appli. I eations witl tflfet a cure. As a general rule, a throhbing headeohe, with tenderneess and soreness of the scalp. can best be relieved by hot applications ; whereas, when the head feels lull and " bursting," if cold be applied to the head, and heas to the neck and spine, the affect is most agreeable.

Cultivating Fruit for Flavour. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 27 May 1892

Cultivating Fruit for Fla vour. Is the eagerness to secure highly lavou red varieties of strawberries, raspber ries, grapes and other small fruits, as well as of pears and apples, a very im Iortant fact is likely to be lost from eight. it is true that the best varie. ties of all kinds of fruit, vegetables, and cereals should be sought when one is planting an orchard, making a garden, or attempting to raise any kind of agricultural product; but it must be remembered that the matter of variety is no more important than the culture which the plant or tree receives. The most bigly flavoured strawberry be. comes insipid when starved in growth and ohoked by weeds. Two apple trees of the same sort and equally vigorous at the start will bear fruit that will scarcely be recognised by the tasto as related to each other. The one grows in a roomy, well fertilized and well cultivated garden and the other produces its fruit with sod bound roots in a sterile soil and closely crowded among other tr...

By burning it, the sulphur is oridised end becomes a meet acrid and plisonooa vapor known as soal pbhrous acid. This acid quickly destroys ail kinds of germs, whether of mould, mil. dew, and other kinds of minuta fungi, or of thoee organisms which cause diecaro in plants and animtls. The germe of all the contagious diseases of farm animals are de stroyed by exposure to the fumes of burning suiphur, and wherever these diseases have appeared, or are expected to appear, they may be avoided by closing the buildings and fumigating them with sulp'our wrapped in paper moistened with kerosene oil to make it more inflammable, screwing up the paper and lighting one end. The papers, for safety, should be put in an iron pot or pan. One ounce of the enlphnr will be siflicient to fumigate and disinlecs a small poultry house, and a pound will eeron for a large stable or barn. The building should be t...
