Newspapers' Rights to Public News. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 31 March 1914

Newspapers' Rights to Public News. A decision given by the Court of Common Pleas at Columbus, Ohio, regarding the right of newspapers to news of a public nature seems likeiy to have considerable effect throughout the union, and inciden ta'ly, shows in what estimation^the press is held in the Uuited States. The. court has decided (says the Chicago correspondent of the I,on* don "Daily Chronicle") that. no public ofliical Ins any right^tp. withhold news of a public nature, and that a ^newspaper has such a property right in such news as., to entitle it to an injunction restrain ing an official from withholding in formation of this character. The case arose out of a refusal of a country auditor to permit the re presentatives of newspapers from attendius aui reporting meeting* of the commissioners. One of the newspapers in question brought a suit against the auditor, with the remit that, it won' its case. The de cisffcn establishes a precedent, ar.d it is stated that other cases will be ...

Drying off Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 31 March 1914

Drying off Cows. There is a general agreement as to tlie desirability of allowing cows a period of rest by drying off tbe millr. during the closing days of gestation, but the question is, for for how long? Within reason/the cow should be milked *as long as possible, and especially is this the case with youne heifers. This is called iuculcating.the milking habit, and the best experience goes to show that as the cow is treated one year she expects to be treated sgain. Further, the dairy farmer need's to get the greatest amount of profit iu the least possible time and at the minimum cost. A rest from milk ing is, of course, for the benefit of the cow and of the yield after calving. Iu the case of a poor milker, there is no difficulty about fixing the pjriod during which she should be dry, as she simply goes •dry herself, generally loo soon for her owner, and some will take as much as three months' rest, or only yield iu response to generous feed: ing a quantity of milk that does not pa...

Agricultural Lime. RIGHT AND WRONG USE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 31 March 1914

Agricultural Lime. RIGHT AND WRONG L'sH. It is now proved beyond a doubt that many of our soils need lime. The use of lime upon soils is noth ing new, but it was not used in the earlier days with the understanding of correcting the acidity of the soil, but rather for the purpose of libera ting the plant food. Although the results secured by applying lime may he similar for a time to those obtained by iisiug^ fertilisers containing phosphoric acid and*, potash, yet there is a difference. When such a fertiliser is used, some plant food is added to the soil, and, if the amount re turned is equivalent to that re moved by the crop, the supply in the soil has not been diminished. But, when lime has been used to liberate some phosporic acid and potash, and ■ these iti turn are used by crops, the soil has been de pleted of some its original fertility. When used in this way it is only a question of time until the soil will fail to respond to liming. The process of taking away has been going ...

American Cattle Companies in Australia. VIEWS OF MR SYDNEY KIDMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 31 March 1914

American Cattle Companies in Australia. VIEWS OF MR SYDNEY KID MAN. "I have never sold a beast to Swift's, and perhaps never will," said Mr Kidman iu an interview in Brisbane, but I am very favorable towards theui. Tliey have ex pended a large sum on their works on the Brisbane River, and pas toralists and the railways should welcome them. I had 110 idea they were putting up such fine works until I went and had a look a> them They are also putting up belter un trucking yards than the railways provide in any of the other States. The people who will suffer from their coming here will be those in the other Slates, and particularly the railways, as the cattle will not go so much out of Queensland as they have done for years, from the Paroo, Cooper's Creek, Kulo, Thar gomindah, and the western districts generally. Their proper port is Brisbane, but ever since the stations were formed the cattle iu those districts have in the past drifted away to Sydney, Melbourne aud Adelaide. The Que...

Items from Punch. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 31 March 1914

Items from Punch. While the American professor of peace, Dr Jordan, is actively en gaged assuring Australia tint there can be" no war because nobody ou earth can afford lo indulge m so ex pensive a luxury, liere is Defence jMiuister Iieri \Ton Krobatin, of Austria, telling Kuropr.

Professor Jordan should go and see Herr Von Kro batin about this. He might call iu ou the K<u-:er at the same time, and reassure him about Russia. Plainly, Kaiser William is far from satisfied that Russia will not go to war simply because she can't afford to. Really, Russia could not afford to go to war with Japan, but she did.

An Anti-Vaccination Mayor. Seveu "vaccination prosecutions were before the Port Melbourne Court on Thursday. .Iu only one .instance did the defendant appear. After the justices had conferred as to their d-ecision, the mayor ("Cr A. L. Page), who presided, said to defendant, iu delivering; judgment: —I am sorry to inform you that the majority of the bench say you should be liued 20s. There were cries of dissent from the other justices on the bench, Crs J. P. Crichtou and W. Howe, and Messrs D. C. Armstrong and T. Teslro. The mayor, however, ^continued —I hope the time will not be long when there be nobody fined for.11011 vacciuation, when medical men will be paid for keeping people well, instead of spreading disease. Mr Armstrong.—We have nothing to do with that here. Mr Tresto.—We are not fishing for votes at all The mayor smiled, and the next case was called 011.

The Rainfall. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 31 March 1914

The Rainfall. The Rochester rainfall for March this year was but 12 points, as against 377 points for March, 1913, and1 the total for the first quarter of litis year' was 84 points, com pared with 091 points for the cor responding period of last year. Of the ^84 'points for the first three months of this year 52 points of it fell on 25th of January; Thus within a period of over two months since then ouly 32 points of raiu have fallen. This district has not suffered for want of water nearly Eo much as other parts of the coun try, principally because the locali ties most drought-stricken formerly are now supplied with water from the irrigation channels, still water had to be carted for stock and do mestic supply in certain quarters such as at Torumbarry and the plains around, as well as that part of Restdown south of the town. The latter has channels from the Campaspe system, but for a long time the water has been too low in j the Campaspe weir to afford a sup ply. On Tuesday evening ...

An Echuca Sensation. PRIEST ASSAULTED. A dastardly outrage was. com mitted on the Murray bridge on Thursday night about 9 o'clock The Rev. Father Foley, of St' Mary's Church, Echuca, was proceeding to Moama to pay a visit to the Rev. Father Killian, and when about half way across the bridge a stranger passed auJ said "Good-night." Father Foley relumed the greet ing and went on his way. He had only gone a a few yards when the man whom had passed came up behind him and said, "I want your money," Father Foley replied "I have none." He then remembered that during the day he had drawn L30 from the Savings Bank to send away by the afternoon mail. The man then seized him by the coat collar and threw him to the ground. Holding him fast he said, "Where is that money you got out of the bank?" The robber searched the victim's pocket for money or valu ables, and then appeared to put his hand in his hip pocket-as though feeling for a weapon. The action left one of the rev. gentleman's legs free,...

CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. The value of the cabbage as a feed for dairy . cows is fairly generally known. It is a succulent feed, is highly relished by cows, is an ex cellent milk producer, and is rich in protein. But whilst its value is rea lised, many dairy farmers have a rooted obection to it on account of its liability to impart an undesirable flavor to milk and butter. This ques tion is dealt with by a writer in a recent issue of "Hoard's Dairyman." After observing that the only objec tion to feeding cabbage to milch cows is the flavor imparted to the milk, he proceeds to point out that, when fed under certain conditions, this objectionable feature can be avoided. One of the first precautions to observe is to keep the cabbage away from the shed at milking time. Milk absorbs odors very quickly indeed, and if the cabbage odors are near the milk it will be tainted. An other precaution to observe is not to feed the cows just before milking; any high-flavored feed, in fact—tur nips for...

THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. As an intance of the numbers of bacteria the common fly can carry, the following figures given by Pro fessor Easton may be cited: — He caught 100 flies in a kitchen, put them in a pint of sterilised water and rinsed them about, and then examined the water, and found that he had rais ed such a number of bacteria off that each By averaged over 300,000. He next caught a similar number in the cow barn, and they averaged over 800,000 each, another 100 in the pig pen, and they averaged over 1,000,000' each. It may be said that when one goes t into a factory or house, and finds, many flies, one is immediately justi-' I fied in condemning the sanitary sur-1 ! rcundings of such premises. One can appreciate the fact that in factories | where flies abound it is next to 1m-! possible to keep them out of the i milk, and the seeding of the milk t by the bacteria which they carry! must be very appreciable. The evil deeds of the fly need emphasising, as too many of us seem to ...

SELECTING THE MILK COW. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

SELECTING THE MILK COW. Nearly every good milk cow pos sesses certain points of conformation which indicate her milking qualities. The first important point is that she , shall show lean or bony form, with a sharp prominent backbone, ribs wide apart, sharp withers and incurv ing thighs. This indicates "dairy temperament," or, in other words, that she will turn her feed into milk instead of beef. Next she will have a long, deep bar rel, well sprung ribs,. broad muzzle, and a strong jaw, these points indicau j ing capacity for consuming larger amounts of feed. Third, she will show a hardy con stitution. which is indicated by a large heart girth, a deep chest, large open nostrils, and a large wind pipe and lung capacity. Fourth, a good dairy cow should have an udder of good size running well forward and hung up well be hind. The region of the pelvis or the hips is wide, as is also the space be tween the thighs as viewed from be hind, giving ample room for a large udder. A large udder I...

THE FOLLY OF FRETTING. Don't worry yourself. It won't do any good, and you'll make yourself a nuisance to all your friends. Worry wears more than work, and you begin to look miserable and can't eac more than one plateful at dinner, and you have pains in your head and can't sieep. Suppose you try and find the bright side, or try to make or do any thing but stare and talk about the blackness. Nobody ever did any good yet by what country folks call "sniff ing and stewing," which msans keep ing one's mind in worrimont and agi tation, and wondering whether this thing will come right or that thii;g fail. Go straight ahead in the even tenor of your way, and probably you will get along better than any a mount of fretting would allow ;ou. 'lake things quietly. Don't be too much up set or agitated about anything. Do you know that five minutes of high excitement takes as much out. of a person as five hours' hard work, and ten minutes' deep grief will often make one downright ill. Strive to kee...
