THE GARDEN. ROSE MILDEW. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 19 June 1914
THE GARDEN. ? T ROSE MILDEW. The New South Wales Bureau _of. Microbiology states that rose mil dew is caused by a fungus, Spbaero^ theca; It attacks the leaves, young shoots, and flower buds, often curl ing the leaves. On the shoots, calyx, and fruit tho fungus forms thick, felty patches that persist late into | the season, and here produces the . small black bodies containing tho spores to carry it over till the next | year. Sometimes the disease occurs in two stages - the first after the leaves are formed, and the second \ when tho young wood has mado 'growth and the flowers have com | menced to appear. This is the criti cal period and the fung,us prepares to ; carry, over the winter. Dusting with flowers of sulphur mixed with one third of its volume of lime checks the disease. Spraying with sulphuric acid, one part in 1500. of water, is ' one of the best remedies. Care must be taken in mixing or diluting. sul phuric acid. Put the water into an earthenware or wooden vessel, pour t...
CALVES AND TUBERCULOSIS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 19 June 1914
I CALVES AND TUBERCULOSIS. I i Ever) one connected with farming is now very, keen on the subject of ! fighting tuberculosis among our herds. It is pointed out, however, in a contemporary, that most of us arc working from the wrong end altoge ther. We are treating animals after they are attacked, and proposing -to have them examined and slaughtered, whereas nothing is done at the other end, as it were, to breed animals free of tuberculosis. It is well enough known now that a calf from a tuber culous cow may be perfectly, healthy,. and nearly always is to start with, and if wc feed it on healthy milk, and keep it away from tainted sur roundings, in ninety-nine eases out of a hundred it would grow up a good and healthy animal. The whole point, therefore, empha sises the fact that we should set about rearing our calves under proper conditions, and that we might in a short time bring forward herds whicli would be absolutely sound to begin with, and these would take the place of others mo...

THE DAIRY MILK PRODUCTION. QUANTITY AND QUALITY-EX HAUSTIVE INVESTIGATIONS. A great deal has been heard of late of various phases of the question of the milk standard and the basic causes of the variations in the qua lity of milk.

Hall, director of the famous Rothamsted Agricul tural Experiment Station in Eng land, which has been in 'existence sinco 1843. This able work contains a chapter on "Milk, Butter, and Cheese," which deals with a great many questions connected with the production of milk, butter, . and cheese, and the results of the experi ments in the variations in composi tion of milk are particularly inter esting.

A QUESTION OF COW VALUES. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 19 June 1914
A QUESTION OF COW VALUES. Fortunate indeed is the dairyman who owns a good cow and;knows it. Likewise fortunate is ho who owns a poor one and knows it and has sense enough to send' lier to the blocto ra ther than sell her to his brother dairyman for a boarder. The good cow of the real dairyman have records and usually are not for sale. It is the dairyman who consi ders it too much bother to make a record who needs to learn something ! about cow values. | Is it not truo that more times than . one we have owned cows which we I thought were ;*ust ordinary indivi duals and which we were induced by the dealer to sell at a low price, but i later we had discovered that we sold the "gooso that laid the golden egg" ?

The Song of the Shirt. NEW VERSION. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 26 June 1914
I The Song of the Shirt. . NEW VERSION. ^ That thcr© is a distinctly humor ous side, even to Antarctic explo* ration, is illustrated by many amus ing incidents which Mr. Justice Murray and Mr. George Marston relate in thcic" book, "Antarctic Days" (Melrose). Both thcao gentlemen belonged to Sir Ernest Shackleton's last expe dition, and they relato how one of tho mombers, a genius, "hit upon the plan whereby you can always havo a clean shirt, ovon if you pos sess only two-always,without wash* ing, be it understood. You put on a shirt; in a woek or two It be comes dirty ; you don tho other one, and wear it till it is so much dir tier than the first that the first is clean by comparison, and you rovert to it, and so on, ad infinitum." A makeshift in regard to trousers was equally amusing. "Finding the trousers issued to tho shore party too complicated for everyday wear, or being, for some other reason, un happy in them, Mac determined to mnko himself a pair* out of a Jaeger blanket.

Tuning-Fork Tests. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 26 June 1914
Tuning-Fork Tests. ? The tuning-fork is the latest mar vel of medicine. . Dr. James Can tile, a doctor who learned ninny strango clinical secrets during his adventures in China, nnd who is to-dny one of our greatest experi mentalists in tho field of tropical medicine, has discovered that tho tuning-fork can prove of great help to physicians. By vibrating a tun ing-fork and moving it about against the body, the density of the organs situated beneath can bo gauged almost to a hair's breadth. The fork used gives out tho note of C sharp; it- has a specially-de signed striker attachment, so that it need not bo removed from its position for tho purpose of revi brating. T»r. Cantilo in certuin cases coin pared tho results of his tuning fork method with those obtained by means of X-rays, and found that tho former were absolutely accurate. Ho believes that'tho method will be very useful when dealing with bro ken ribs and other bones, and he is | now trying to tabulate tho different sounds ma...
To Tell the Age of an Egg. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 26 June 1914
To Tell the Age of an Egg. The method, explained bolow, of easily ascertaining whether an egg is fresh or otherwise, comes from the Agricultural Society of Saxony. All tho apparatus required is a ves sel filled with water. Placed in tho water, the egg, if fresh, will remain resting at tho bottom of tho vessel in a horizon tal position. If, however, the egg is not quite fresh, it will rest with tho big end raised higher than tho j small end, and tho higher the big | end is raised tho older^ is tho egg. An egg three weeks old rosts diago nals at the bottom of the water. A three months old e%g stands actually poised on its small end. An egg that is more than three months old will Moat. The reason why the egg acts thus, and itself answers the question. "How old are you ?" is simple. As an egg pets older it-unlike some persons-becomes more buoyant. The water contained in tho white of'the egg evaporates, and this cnuscs . the empty spare at the thick end of every egg to become enlarged. T...

It would, however, have reduced the service on the best part of the line, viz , from Hawthorn-road to E...
