WHY MILK DETERIORATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 20 November 1907

WHY HTXE SETEBXORATES. It seems to be very difficult for a great many dairymen to understand the Im portance of keeping milk clean. They win tell you that they strain It through two thicknesses of cheese-cloth and re move all foreign substances, conse quently, the milk ought to be cleaa The fact Is that straining the milk does not do as much good as they Imagine. The hair, or the bit of straw does not do so very much harm. It is the bacteria, or mlscroscoplc organtsms, little micros copic plants, adhering to these foreign substances which really do the harm, and these bacteria cannot be removed by (draining the milk. The only thing to c-o Is to kaep them out in the first place. When milk is drawn from a cow's udder It is perfectly clean and wholesome. In other words, it Is what is known as sterile milk. If it can be kept In that condition it does not spoil. In every cowyard thousands of par ticles of dust are floating in the air. These particles of dust have bacteria ad hering to th...

THE DAIRY. IMPROVING SHE DAIRY HERD. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 20 November 1907

?'^^^?pD&'iife^ ^ nttPBovnro the daxbt hebjd. After having the herd started. It is well to place at its head, if not a pure bred dairy bull, at least one whose form and breeding have a predominating ten dency to reproduce the dairy type in its offspring. The heifers should freshen at from 22 to 27 months old depending upon the rapidity of their growth. ir area too -early (says a writer In tne 'Prairie Farmer') their growth will be stunted, the yield of milk meagre, and the labor of milking tedious. If growth is rapid and breeding delayed too long, the heifers will lay on too much flesh and - breeding will be doubtful. The first lactation should continue longer than a year In order to encourage, milking to the full capacity, end the heifer should be dried off for a rest of some eix weeks before freshening again. This rest Is Nature's way. It saves, labor, and more milk will be given the following year as a result It is not so much the breed as the care, and food given a cow o...

AMERICAN CHILDREN. SOME STRIKING FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 20 November 1907

AMERICAN CHILDREN. SOME STRIKING FACTS. | Dr. Robert E. Park gives In the 'Sun- day Magazine' of New York some stilli lng facts about children In the United I States. For instance, about 5600 chil dren are born in the United States eve-y day, and more^han 1400 die— a death for each minute In the twenty-four hours. The latest Government statistics avail able show that in a single year there were 2,063,386 births; and of this number 1,646,329 children survived. The saidcet thing about this enormous sacrifice of Infant life Is this: for the most part it Is unnecessary. It Is due to Ignorance, to carelessness in part, or to the lack of that medical skill which the poor cannot command. A PIG DECREASE. The number of children Increases every year, of course; but the proportion of children to the whole population has de creased since the beginning- of the nine- j teenth century. In 1S00 the number of : children was considerably more than a [ third of the whole, and in 1900 consider- j ably ...

ELECTRIC LEAP. SUBSTITUTE FOR AN ESTHETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 20 November 1907

ELECTRIC LEAP. SUBSTITUTE FOR ANAESTHETICS. M. Stephana Leduc, tbe eminent pro fessor of the School of Medicine at Nantes, has recently discovered a method of causing 'electric sleep,' which, it is claimed, will in the near future replace chloroform and other anaesthetics in all surgical operations. The discovery proceeded from the study of (lie effects of intermittent currents and from the knowledge that skull and brain offer, but little resis tance to tiie currents. For a human, being tbe current is of thirty-five volts applied intermittently in full strength for minute fractions of a second. Two electrodes are applied to tbe skull in a special manner, the points of applica tion being first carefully shaved. M. Leduc has made scores of experi ments, says 'La Revne,' on dogs and on himself. All were successful. The application of « lie current on the head Is uot dangerous. No ill effects follow, even when the experiment lasts for hours. - . t. ? The advantages of 'electric sleep' a...
