Rural Dairy Suggestions. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 June 1892
Rural Dairy Suggestlons. t IT is rarely the case that winter cheese. making can he made to pay, says a writer. Farmers who have large winter dairies are seldom in close prczinity enough to furnish .uflicient milk for the purpose, and even then they might consider it more profitable to make butter. Cheesa can 'be made in winter. however, as comfortably as in spring or autumn, but due preparation must be made for it. Both m ske and curing roomr 'hould be as warm as. the apartments of a iSelling house. The warmer they are made, the hss fuel will be required to keep up necessary beat. In winter, milk should , se-matured by standing in a warm terperas :ure for several hours before rennet is incor- i oorated with it. It is useless to think of maturing curd made from perfectly sweet t rinter milk, unless you took more than one 'ay for it. IT is evidently more important to ourry took in winter than at any other time. And nis is especially the case with cows, horses .nd other stock confided ...

The Distress in Melbourne and Suburbs. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 24 June 1892
The Distress in Melbourne and Suburbs. It is many years since Melbourne and the colony have been brought face to face with such widespread distress as exists at the present moment ; and although steps are being taken to provide work in as many directions as possible for the army of workless in the city, there are yet no signs that the iron grip of dire necessity under which some thousands of unfortunate people have been struggling for the last few months is relaxing. On the contrary, privation, want and semi-starvation stand gaunt and inflexible as the prospects to be gloomily faced by hundreds of sturdy fellows, who cannot, try as they may, get a day's work; while faintly, but with sharp meaning may be heard the cry of children and tne wailing of women. Such a state of affairs as now prevails, one may be assured, on all sides is unparalled in the depth of its pressing severity. From every benevolent or charitable society the confirmation comes that the cry of the unemployed is only...

And the fine prospects of a good coming dairy season is stimulating our farmers to take up as many shares as possible in thp Droadford Dutter Factory Con:pany, in order to secrre the establishment of a local creamery.

The mortuary arrangements were en trusted to Messrs Rowsell and McLennan of Kilmoreand the funeral left the residence of Mr Ferguson on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock for the local cemetery.
