Bed Bag Dangerous. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 2 January 1914
Bed Bug Dangerous. The insect familiarly known as the bed bug is, according to Dr. Wailing Beveridge, as dangereus as it is objectionable. In a paper read before the conference on sanitation, now sitting in New York, he declared that the bug was responsible for the transmission of tuberculosis. It was only recently, said the doctor, that the bug had been given consideration as a carrier of germs, but now a num ber of authorities were agreed that there was a possibility of it infect ing persons with leprosy and spinal meningits. The bug was able to for for 229 days without food. The doctor therefore warned housewives of the grave consequences of living in the company of the household pest.
Cattle Raising. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 2 January 1914
Cattle Raising. During the past fe\v_ weeks our attention has been drawn to the quality of some of the cattle fattened in the Pokolbin district. Since the establishment of stock sales in Cess nock many have found it a very pay able spec, to go in for cattle fatten ing and the results in most instances are flattering to the capabilities of the district. Mr. E. Wilkinson, but cher of Cessnock, recently drew our attention to a prime vealer which he had killed. The vealer, Mr. Wilkin son claimed, was one of the best lie had ever seen, and was certainly a testimony of the fattening qualities of the Pokolbin district. The animal was purchased for £3/19/- at Snape Bros,' stock sales and was sold for Miss L. King, of Pokolbin.

Bendigo Gold Production. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 2 January 1914
Bendigo Gold Production. A review of the year's work shows that the Bendigo gold production was. the lowest since .1891, whilst there was a large falling off in the amount of calls paid.

The figures are as follows:— Gold, 167,672oz (com pared with 174,901oz last year), divi dends, £135,116 (compared with £114,088 in 1912). An explanation of the position is that the majority of the companies have adopted a pol icy of rigid economy in managing the mines. ^
