Municipal Gas. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 26 June 1901

Municipal. Gas Sib,—I v?as glad to see that a " House boulder" wrote on this question about a week ago in your paper. It is quite right about the bad gas and complaints are frequent and indignation is growing. If the gas committee are incapableof look ing after the interests of ratepayers and gas consumers, then the sooner they are replac ed by three more competent men the better. We pay 10/- a 1000 feet for our gas, and for this price we expect a fair article. There is neither pressure nor quality in the stuff that is being sold. Here is a question that Mr. O.xley might investigate. He would win the thanlis of the community if ho only moved in the matter demanded that the people should get good gas, as he has demanded that the children should- have good water. Yours wwCe PISGUSTED.

Bowral & Robertson Free Press. Wednesday, June 26,1901. THE WATER SUPPLY OF DAIRY FACTORIES. Whilst pasteurisation is being forced upon the butter industry by reason of the compulsion to manufacture an article for the English markets equal to that of Den mark, the fact that bacteria must - be in troduced in order to contaminate the milk is too often overlooked. The atmosphere is laden with all sorts of germs, and only in high arctic and antarctic latitudes and on lofty mountain tops is it germ free, whilst the lpwer strata of air are far more laden than the air of uplands. Tlie. air of the open country is also more free from germs than the atmosphere of towns, be cause there are so very many breeding spots for the spores of micro-organisms in large centres of regulation. The air of milking sheds is more germ l^den than that of the paddocks by reason of the xlust and dirt of the yards into Which the milk cattle gather. Germs are always settling down as dust, and if only a few...
