WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 7 January 1914
WHY IMPORT CITRUS FRUIT? Why, asks an expert, do we import citrus fruit from Italy? We nave Olulditions here favorable to the growlug of tirstclass fruit. We can lroduc citrus fruit here equal to ahat ;e receive from Italy, ii pro ier cultural tmethods are practised. The soil is here, and the climatic condition. The Italian fruit has a thiln skln, the correct flavor, and its keeping quality is world-renowned. Yet some of our locally-produced oran ges wll columDare favorably wvlth theirs, but to oust the inmported ar ticles grow'ers should ende:avor to produce more of this class. The thin skinued varieties are just as easily grown a;s the inferior types, and, a?s tar as latvor is concerned, lmany of our up-to-date growers produce fruit every bit as good as that imntorted lIetter in tact, but the drawvbacck is Ltat we do not get enough., nor does it alwvays combine with the comnImer cially-essential thin skin.

A WEIRD PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 7 January 1914
A WEIRD PROCESSION. ,ive hundred snake-charmers, sounding weird notes on their pipes, formed the unusual yet picturesque procession that followed to his grave KIatch Sarak, a man of big renown in his business, who died in terrible agony as the result of a cobra liite received while practising his profee sion in the neighborhood of Garden Reach, India." "Guru," orgod, he had become dub6 bed.by the people amongst whom he lived, such was his influence over poisonous reptiles.. His services were sought recently by-.' neifghbor who had missed many fowls from his com pound. Going at dusk one day, the snake-charmer discovered a' cobra of unusual size amongst the birds, so formidable, in fact, that he postponed his attempt to capture it until day ifght, when he was successful in se curing it. Instead of dispatching the snake at once, he took it to the local bazaar for the edification of the natives. On attempting to extract its fangs,, the cobra wriggled free and darted at its captor, who w...

CRUSHING REBUKE. In the early days of railways, on some of the lines smoking was not allowed at all, either in the trains or on the station buildings.

SMOKING WHILE MILKING. Do not allow dogs or loafers to be round at milkcing time. If any acci dent occurs by which a pail-full or partIy full of milk becomes dirty, do not try to remedy this by straining. but reject all this milk, and rinse the pail. We remember one day, when on a visit, seeling a milking hand smoking a pipe. Suddenly, he spoke to the cow, and the pipe fell from the man's mouth into the bucket. He made one grab into the milk-bucket,. put the wet pipe into his pocket, and went on milking! Then, what abount the ash from a pipe or cigarette fall ing about everywhere? Sack the man ojr boy who smokes while mHking.

CARE OF CREAM. For the factory manger to turn out a first-grade butter he requires the heIp, of the farmer. The cream must be delivered in the best order pos lsible. Cleanliness in the dairy is an essentfal condition. Cream cans are returned washed, but it is very neces sary that they should be thoroughly cleansed, and scalded again at the farm before use. For segarating, a special room should be provided, at least 30 yards to windward of the milking shed, have a concrete floor, be provided with good drainage, well ventilated, and have a good supply of water. The milk should be separated as soon as possible, and while the animal heat is in the milk. The; cream should at once he cooled to the lowest possible temperature; and, as the water required is small, this should present no serious difficulty. Under no circumstances should cream from one skimming be mixed with cream from another skimming unless it has first been v;ell cooled. The most unsatisfactory of all suppliers is the man ...
