THE TIME FOR CHEESE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

THE TIME FOR CHEESE MAKING. The best cheese is made in the summer, when the cows are feeding cn good pastures, but when made under scientific conditions in con junction with judicious application of starter, it is possible to make good cheese, at all times. An important point in the making of cheese is to vary the process of manufacture slightly according to the time of the year and the quality of the milk.

THE WRONG PLACE FOR FICTION [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

WRONG PLACE FOR FICTION Mr. Irvin S. Cobb, the American ■writer of short stories, returning from a trip in the Western States, found that a close friend of his had fallen into the hands of the law. He hur ried down to the friend's lawyers. "Why, Jack is the dearest, kindest, most honest man in the world!" he said. "You must call me as a wit ness to his character." "Not while I'm his lawyer!" was the reply. "I know just what would happen. The other man's lawyer would ask your occu pation. And you'd say, 'I'm a writer of fiction.' And the lawyer would get up nail stand over you and look into the (lark recesses of your heart for a time. And by-and-by, despairing of linding one sweet, aspiring thought in you, he would turn to the jury. Ami he would exchange an intelli gent, iiberrous smile with the twelve. And then he would sit down, and, without even troubling to look in your direction, he would say, 'That is quite enough, Mr. Cobb! You may stand down!'"

ANTICIPATE DISEASES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

ANTICIPATE DISEASES. This is the season when the poultry house and poultry yard should he cleaned carefully. Mites and other insects, as a rule, are active at this time. Nature makes them prolific, and resistant against repellants, so that they may, propagate their spe cies to perpetuate themselves. It will pay to go over the poultry" yard and clean every nook and cor ner. Cut the weeds, burn the trash, rake oil of the rubbish. The interior of the poultry house should be cleaned and the walls sprayed. Use a strong insecticide and a fungicide. See that the perches are sprayed and disinfected. It is worth while to white-wash the inside and paint the outside of the poultry house. This will preserve the building, making it last longer, and will afford considerable insurance against insects and disease. It may help you eradicate disease germs and insects. 1

THE REJECTED COW. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

THE REJECTED COW. At present there is nothing to pre vent the rejected cow from finding its way into an auction yard, or even into a clearance sale, to be again the subject of disappointment to another farmer until he similarly gets rid of it. This can go on until through sheer age the cow disappears from the dairy farm, after being all its life an unprofitable drag on somebody. Under a better system the animal would be fattened for beef as soon as its milk-producing capacity, or rather incapacity, was discovered. Of course this immediate elimination of the unprofitable dairy cow does take place in innumerable instances, but it is obviously necessary that its fate should be automatically sealed the moment it is weighed in the balance and found wanting. Cow-testing has now fortunately become so general throughout the State that farmers would be well advised to introduce the rule that at all sales an authen ticated milking record should be pro duced with each cow offered for sale.

WHEN TESTING MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

WHEN TESTING MILK. The apparatus for testing milk should be kept on a lead-covered table, as the acid used in carrying out the Gerber test lias not any effect upon lead. If any sulphuric acid gets spilled oil wood, the wood gets burn ed up. Always keep the stopper in the sulphuric acid bottle, otherwise the acid will absorb the moisture from the air, and thus become weak ened. Everything comes to him who waits, but hustle well while you are wait

The Harvest. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

The Harvest. The full tide of the season's wheat delivery has now set iu at Rochester and about 130 loads, representing perhaps 3000 bags of wheat daily, cross the shire weigh bridge In the forenoon especially the bridge keeper, Mr G. Rumble, is kept going at express speed, as this year he has not au assistant as has been usual of late years. Iu addition to this there are about 2000 bags of wheat daily unloaded at the Cornelia Creek siding (Strathallan). This comes chiefly from Restdovfu, Cornelia Creek and neighboriug settlements, and most wheat from these places was de livered at Rochester before the construction of the siding. Taken as a whole the harvest returns are satisfactory, though they scarcely realise the expectations of a few weeks ago. This is to an extent attributable to rust, whi- li in some places reduced' the yield, though taking the district altogether it did not very materially affect the result'. It see-ned to be mostly iu evidence at Colbinabbin, which is not, h...

SOIL REQUIREMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

SOIL REQUIREMENTS. With a small outlay for practical ex periments a farmer can learn more in a season regarding the requirements of the soil he cultivates than in any other manner; and the value of such knowledge will enable him to produce the largest possible crops with the smallest expense for fertilisers. He can dispense with such materials as he has proved to be not necessary on his soil. On the other hand, he can add an extra quantity of any ingre dient with his experiments show to be especially necessary.

Progress of Irrigation Settlements. MR MEAD VISITS ROCHESTER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

Progress of Irrigation Settler meats. MR MEAD VISITS ROCHES TER. Mr EUvood Mead, chairman of the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission, visited Rochester on Friday and paid a visit of inspec tion to the Batimvui irrigation settlement. Mr Mead's primary object was to impress upon the settlers the desirability of at once cultivating the land for a suffi ciency of fodder crops aud thus re duce the demand made on' their lucerne for the maintenance of stock. Settlers should sow earlv and then feed the produce to stock till June or July when the stuff could be ploughed in, thus affordiug ex cellent green manure which would re-invigorate the laud and render it iti,exceilent condition for the growth of lucerne afterwards. He en larged on the valuable properties of berseetn, an Egypuau plant, and strongly recommended its cultiva tion. He urged the advisability of ploughing deeper in order that the subsoil should'be stirred up, also that tire soil- should be better watered, a neglect of wh...

CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. Proper cultivation of the soil in creases the nitrifying bacteria, and this, in turn, increases productive ness—a most important consideration to the farmer. The knowledge of bac teria and their work is recent and limited; there are many in kind, and in spite of the amount of work done, scientists are only in the midst of their discovery. The practical far mer does well to let bacteriologists monopolise interest in the whole subject, except in so far as he can provide some conditions that have been demonstrated to be profitable. The work of bacteria, hoever, must come more and more into considera tion by the farmer, because Nature uses them to produce a vast amount of the change that is going on around us. In. the consideration of the na ture of iegumes, we must take into account the bacteria which they have associated with them, and through which {hey obtain the atmospheric nitrogen. It is true that bacteria must i have favorable conditions that our plants...

Merry-hearts at Bamawm. —- — FATHER XMAS DISTRIBUTES GIFTS. Last Xtiias eve saw a merry gathering of children and their elders at the Bamawm Methodist Church when the annual Christmas tree and concert was the attraction. An impromptu programme was.ar ranged when the songs rendered by Mr Osmond were much appreciated. Miss Gertie Helmore, who has a nice voice, wss rapturously encored £or her vocal contribution. Mr Parker,, a visitor from the mother land, gave an excellent recitation entitled "The Huegenot's Farewell to his Home." Messrs Fred Helmore and Lyn Murray added to the harmony of the occasion with songs admirably rendered, and Miss Corie Nankivell's solo on the organ entitled "Fire! Fire!" was excel lently played, and added the spice of variety to a pleasant programme. At the conclusion of the programme the children's hour eventuated right merrily. Mr Parker took the part of Father Christmas, and suitably garbed, had a cheery word for the youthful recipients of the treasure tr...

ARRANGING THE HOME GROUNDS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

ARRANGING THE HOME GROUNDS Before building a house most per sons recognise the necessity of hav ing • aefin;ie plan of ihe structure. Comparatively few pet ;'e. however, realise the desirability of planning the home grounds. And yet the latter may have quite as much to do with making a home as the former. In a short article it is impossible to give more than a few general princi ples. These, if considered in their proper relations to the situation of the building and the character of the sur roundings, may lead to pleasing re sults. The location i-.f walks and drives should be made a mat'or of convenience. Neither the wa.'xs nor the drives are ornamental m them selves; hence they shuuld not be more numerous than the uses of the c'tatty life call for. Curved walks and drives are often more pleasing than straight ones, especially -wher-? 'lie grounds* are large. The curves, howuvor, r.hould be easy and natural, not short and kinky. The home grounds may be compared with a picture in wh...

COWS HARD TO MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 January 1914

COWS HARD TO MILK. There are two methods of treating the hard-milking cow. One is to use teat plugs or dilaters. They are merely plugs made so that they may be inserted in the end of the teat, where they remain between milking periods. . The reason a cow milks hard is because the sphincter muscle, ■which contracts the end of the teat, is rigid. The teat plugs remaining in the teat between milking hours, have a tendency gradually to distend and dilate this muscle in such a way that the cow eventually becomes easy to milk. The second method is to cut the teats, thus weakening the sphincter muscle. This is accomplished by a leat-spiitter, an instrument that is in serted into the teat. By pressing the end, small knives are pressed out in such a way that when the teat-split ter is withdrawn the muscle is sever ed. There is really no reason why one should utilise his time with hard milkers when by use of these inex pensive instruments they may be ren dered easy milkers. One precaution tha...
