Retaining the Moisture. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 7 April 1914

Retaining the Moisture. When it is considered that for the production of lib of dry sub stance, a plant requires 300 to 4'JO lbs ot water, it is easy to under stand what an important function is played by the moisture in the soil. A field of wheat evaporates sufficient moisture to cover the surface ot ihe ground to a depth of 9 iucnes. Tnis shows how desir able it is to keep the water of the winter rains from drying off before the crops cau utilise it, because the rainfall during the,spriug and sum mer period of gtowtu is irregular, aud otreu not sufficient to furni.-h the requisite snppiy of water to the plants which, without this dissolv ing element in the soil, are unable to make use of tbe plant food Deep stirring of the soil (that is, breaking up the soil under the sur face furrow without bringing it to the surface), contributes to the im provement of tbe moisture soil condition, as the water reservoir may be said to be thereby enlarged and raore moisture stored up. Any ting th...

Capital and Labor. REMARKS BY MR HAGELTHORN. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 7 April 1914

Capital and Labor. REMARKS BY MR HAGEI, THORN. Mr Hagelthoru, Minister for Pub lic Works, made the following statement on Monday last.—"I was profoundedly dissatisfied with the attitude takeu up by the majority of those who represented the workers in ihe discussion which took place on the question of indus tiial efficiency on Wednesday last at the close of Mr Harris's series of admirable lectures on this impor tant question. That attitude, which appeared to me to be one of un founded suspicion and utter un reason, was characteristically set out in the remarks of Mr Hampson, M.I/,A He (Mr Hampsou) said, "You ask why capital aud labor stand at daggers drawn. Is it not simply because at the bottom, stripped of all sentiuieut, their two interests are diametrically opposed? The object of the employer is to get as much work as they can for as little money as he cau pay. The men are out to get as much as they cau in wrages from the boss with the least expenditure of effort, aud if lhey cau...

Burrumbeet Light Horse Camp. (Contributed.) [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 7 April 1914

Burrumbeet Light Horse Camp. (Contributed.) The 17th Australian Light Horse Brigade finished tlieir course ot training at Burrumbeet on Thurs day 19th ult. Four regiments of light horse were in camp, viz., the 17th, 19th, 20th and 29th, as well as various detachments of the Army Service Corps, Army Medi carCorps, Signallers and Engineers, a squad of the latter being attached to the brigade headquarters. It was originally intended to hold the camp at Trawalla, but Burrumbeet was substituted at the last moment. The ground occupied by the troop was the same as that used in Febru ary, 1913, and again by the in fantry in November of the same year. Thus has the district saw three camps in thirteen months. This has been of much interest to residents of the present generation, particularly the younger members. Nevertheless this is not the first time that the rattle of warlike arms has sounded over Lake Burrum beet, as the following interesting narrative, kindly supplied by Mr G. Dobson, jun...

The "Express." (Established 1873.) PUBLISHED TUESDAY AND FRIDAY MORNINGS TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 7 April 1914

"Established 1373.) PUBLISHED TJSSO.VY AND FES.IO UORKINns TUESDAY. APRIL 7. 1914. Many complaints have of late been made" to the police of the practice of ridiug and driving on the foot paths at Rochester, and from our own observation they are not with out grounds. The offence seems to be on the increase, and is much to condemned, as the paths, which ar-e often cosily of construction, are cut up, and, what is of more import ance, it is a serious menace to the safety of the public, and particularly of children, who may be playing in the vicinity or have just emerged from a right-a-way, and have not time to get out of the way. The police have determined to prosecute relentlessly in any case that comes under their notice. Another re prehensible practice that prevailed here formerly was that of driving in and out of right-a-ways at speed, and it resulted iu several serious accidents, but the offence is not so much in evidence of late times. We wish to draw our readers' at tention to th...

Irrigation Mems. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 7 April 1914

Irrigation Mems. It is estimated that in the Ro chester district settlements there are now about 2000 tous of lucerne hay in additiou to about 1000 tous dis posed of elsewhere during the season, and a great quantity that was fed dowu. Some settlers are depending too much on their lu cerne as fodder for the future, for it has to be borne in mind that there will not be much growth from this time forward. Settlers should make provision for fodder by sowing oats aud tares, or barley and tares for a wiuter supply, and it may be grazed. Every pre caution should be taken to secure a good winter supply of food for stock. It is recommended that those going in for sheep should sow rape, as there is no better food for sheep in winter time. Mr H. Jacob, of Mildura, who for the last ten days lias beeu visit ing and giving advice to our dis trict settlers, left Rcchesttr yes terday moruiug for Melbourne, where he will present bis report to the Water Commission.
