HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914

HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. I Late or heavy suppers are a com i moa cause of insomnia, especially that i'orm of it in which people fall into a heavy sleep, only to awake with a start an hour or two later and And themselves unable "to sleep again until early morning perhaps. Digestion comes almost to a dead stop during sleep, so that sufficient time should be allowed for the last meal to be dis posed of before the hour for retiring. This interval should he two hours at least, which meaiJs that half-past eight is as a rule late enough for the evening meal. In any casa, the food which is taken then ought to be of a light nature, and not include pork, cold meat, or any other article of diet which is slow of digestion. Coffee and strong tea are unsuitable at this .lour, as t.liey tend to cause sleep lessness. Cocoa, made with water, is i much better beverage for use with .1 e evening meal or after it.

DAIRYING. WHY WASH THE UDDER? [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914

DAIRYING. I WHY WASH THE UDDER? There are many points in clean dairying whicli, if observed closely, would obviate milk contamination, and consequent complaints about in ferior cream and butter. Here are some points of advice: Washing the cow's udder is fre quently necessary. Should the pad dock in which the cows have been accustomed to lie down during the night be not clean—very few are clean enough—then the udders should be washed before milking. Cows for aging in unclean places, especially during drought, render washing their udders imperative. The cow-yard is usually muddy in some degree during wet weather. As the cow walks to and from the bail she generally makes a beaten pacii. and when wet this track becomes a continuous manure track. The cow kicks up on to the udder pieces of Ibis contaminated soil, and the udder is thus unclean v.iu'n milking time begins. The milker's hands are often a fruitful source of milk contamination rjuring the operation of milking. The damp, dirty h...

Irrigation. FODDERS FOR DAIRY CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 January 1914

Irrigation. FODDERS FOR DAIRY CATTLE. Mr Klwood Mead's late visit was chiefly in connection with the culti vation of fodder plants. Following is an interesting article on the sub ject. Mr P. H. Suter, the South Aus tralian dairy expert, has been giv ing interesting advice to irrigation ists engaged in dairying. He in dicates a successional supply of forages that, perhaps, can be bet ter provided on a large than on a small block; nevertheless, even on our 00-acre holdings it will be, sooner or later, necessary, from the soil point of view alone, to rotate the crops. Lucerne cannot be grown on the same land for ever It should be remembered, also, that dairy cattle do better upon'a variety of feed than upon one forage. Mr Suter suggests as a rotation oats, pasture, barley, millet and lucerne In Victoria we might be able !0 vary somt of these crops, but the South Australian expert claims that his rotation supplies a most valuable combination of fodders which, when fed in a suitable con ...

Wheat Production. THE BENEFITS OF FALLOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 January 1914

Wheat Production. THE BENEFITS OF FALLOWING. Now that most of our wheat har vest has been gathered in, aud a great of it is -in the market, the time may be opportune to make some observations on the cultivation of the cereal that provides us with the stall of life, aud the greatly improved methods obtaining in its cultivation of late years. Old residents will remem ber that but little value was attached to the plain couutry for wheat rais ing about 20 years ago, aud farmers pinned their faith to the timbered country, and correctly so under the conditions then existing. But a revolution has taken place in farm ing methods within the past quarter of" a century, consisting chiellv of the use of superphosphate, fallow ing. rotation of crops, aud the keep ing of stock principally sheep, on the land. The,result has been that now we often find the opeu plains yield more prolific crops thau the land previously occupied by trees. Fallowing possesses several advan tages, the chief of which of...

More Cultivation. SMALLER HOLDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 January 1914

More Cultivation. SMALLER HOLDINGS. Messrs Elwood Mead (chairman) and Cattanach, of the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission have been making visits to our northern irrigation set tlements, and loudly proclaiming the gospel of more cultivation as as well as of smaller holdings in cases where large areas cannot be profitably worked by the occupants, which seems to be of frequent oc currence. The commissioners state that the most successtul settlers are those \vith abont 30 acres . Dur: ing_ their inspection of Toagala and Koyuga last week the visitors no ticed a number of holdings which were much larger than the settler could work to advantage. They meutiou instances in which the allotments consist of from 70 to 9o acres, of which perhaps only 20 or 30 acres are cultivated. The occu piers of such laud cannot hope to succeed, say the commissioners, for on the land not utilised they have to pay rent, water rates, and other charges without getting any ade quate return. Hence the aut...

An Erratic Water Supply. THE WATER TRUST TAKES ACTION. DUPLICATION OF MACHINERY AND STORAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 January 1914

An Erratic Water Supply. THE WATER TRUST TAKES ACTION. DUPLICATION OF MA CHINERY AND STORAGE. Widespread dissatisfaction bas been expressed by Rochester resi dents at the frequent -siisp'j'.iMons of water supply ju^t at the period when the indispensable fluid is most iu demand; Last Wednesday, for instance, with a sliade heat of 101 decrees, not a drop of water could be had from the mains during the greater part of the clay. Such de fault brings great privations and dislocation of business in its train. Our local factories require a steady supply-of water to keep the wheels moving. The vast number of horses employed in wheat carting? had in many instances not a drop of water to cool their parched throats, and we have been told of cases wherein delirium ensued. Our streets have to remain uu watered, thus-giving the dust fiend absolute control, aud our sewers *"0 remain nnflushed. Of course the luxury of a bath could not be con sidered, but perhaps the greatest evil of all would occur...

The Harvest. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 January 1914

The Harvest. The delivery of the new season's wheat at Rochester continues with but little apparent abatement and will likely continue till about the end of next week, when it will pro bably taper off, though there is a number of large farmers that have not started to cart. Over 4,000 bags are beiug delivered daily at Ro chester, and during the forenoons especially there is one long proces sion of wheat drays and waggons perambulating our chief thorough fares. The afternoon traffic has greatly fallen off, as it consisted chieflv of the wheat of farmers near town who v/ere enabled to cart two loads a day, but they have now nearly all completed their carting. More than one half of tbe wheat delivered at Rochester is stacked, aud Mr Robertson, on behalf of Darling aud Sou, has now a pile of | about 55.000 bags in the station i yard, besides which some few 1 thousands of bags were sent away in the early part of the season, aud about 10,000 bagsatStrathallan The wheat delivery at Stratha...

Messrs Mead and Cattanach Visit Tongala. On Wednesday Mr Elwood Mead (chairman) and Mr Cattanach, of the State Rivers Water Supply Com mission, visited Tougala, and in ilie evening held a large meeting of .the district settlers at the residence of Mr Mason. The commissioners enlarged forcibly and at some length 011 the necessity of the culti vation of more crops as a reserve of food'supply in the scarce periods. Berseem, or Kgyptaiu clover, was strongly recommended as possess ing many desirable qualities. Com missioners also dwelt forcibly on the fact that a number of settlers held larger holdings than they could economically manage. Sotue held 80 or 90 acres of land, while at times one-third of it was not under cultivation. This was a decidedly unprofitable mode of procedure, for the settleis had to pay rent, water rates and other charges on the land that was not being util sed. Such persons should subdivide their blocks, in the event of which the commission would afford them every...
