The Reader's View Country Hospitals. COULD THE SHIRES SUPPORT THE-TAX. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911

=DCk TXT Country Hospitals. COULD THE SHIRES SUPPORT THETAX. Editor "The Land".-Sir,-I read with great interest in your issue of the 10th inst., tlie details of Mr. R. J. Higgins' scheme for the above, for . which I give the author the greatest credit-not only for high ideals of civic government; but also for the truly Christian principles of provid ing for the poor, the helpless, and the stray sheep of our flock. Now, whilst agreeing with the idea that it would be better for the commu nity to bear a uniform tax on all classes proportionately to provide the principal funds for the care of the sick, I have looked in vain for one solid reason in Mr. Higgins' explana tions, why those duties should be tacked on to our shire councils, ox even on to a combined committee of municipalities and shires-although this is the Alpha and Omega of the whole scheme. I can assure Mr. Hig gins, and those acting with him, that I do not approach this subject in any spirit of carping criticism, when I sa...

TESTING THE WEIGHT OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911

TESTING THE WEIGHT OF \v HEAT. Tests by the' chrondrometer; are like ly to be unreliable if made by unskil ful hands, because a very small increase or decrease in tlie weight contents of the bucket becomes important when multiplied many times. For commercial purposes, M'Quirk's patent scale is used, and the actual weight of the bushel, not a fraction of it, is taken when fixing the f.a.q. stan dard. A sample of bleached wheat, ootained from the Chamber of Com merce, when weighed on the cliro . nometer, gave 57 lbs. as the bushel weight, but on M'Quirk's patent scale t.ne departmental expert who weigh ed the small sample, says it would reach 59VL> lbs. As far as the judging of trie show wheats is concerned, the senders may be assured of a fair deal, because none of the owners are known, only numbers being used to identify them, and the work of weighing is done by the same expert throughout, so that the samples are all placed on an equal footing, and all are treated alike. It is, h...

TAR-WATER AND PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911

TAR-WATER AND PLANTS. Can any of our readers say that they have tried the experiment of applying tar-water to their plants X "Hortius," in the N.Z. "Weekiy 3'ress," reports having been shown some very line vegetables, growing on poor, sandy soil. An explanation for such quality under such conditions jiroved that the stimulant used to bring about such results was a libe ral use of the ammonia which float ed on the tar from the local gas works. This was much reduced in strength in water-about half a pint to a pint of ammonia to about three gallons of water. This combination was applied regularly overhead, and through the rose of a watering can, which distributed it evenly and well mixed. As a result cabbages, cauli flower, and all greenish-growing ve getables grew rapidly and attained great size, yet not coarse. This, too, on a soil not generally suited .to the growth of such vegetables. Another advantage from the use of this tar-water, as it is generally called, was the freedom from ...

WAGGA-TUMBARUMBA RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911

WAGGA-TUMBARUMBA RAIL WAY. living evidence before the Public Works Committee at Wagga, con cerning the proposed railway from Wagga to Tumbarurnba. via Hu niula, Sir Samuel McCaugliey, said the line would be of great utility in times of droughts, enabling owners to send stock from Riverina to the mountains, north and south. It would not divert trade from Sydney to Melbourne. He quoted several in stances of heavy personal loss through having to send stock "long distances by road. Some important evidence was given by Dr. Burgess, the Government Medical Officer at Wagga, who (the "Albury Banner" says) stated t>iat the infantile mor tality at Wagga was 273.2 per thou sand, and Tumbarurnba 01 per thou sand. Tuberculosis complaints in Wagga were 63 per thousand, and in Tumbarurnba only one case was recorded. Wagga girls were anaemic and poor-blooded, which was all due to the hot summer weather. The population would be much healthier if able to get a holiday at Tumba rurnba. The poor cou...

Association Doings. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911

I Association B>©iags |l The General Secretary hns forward ed a circular letter to the various branches, advising the despatching of pamphlets setting out the claims of the R.W.U., and giving information as to the formation of branches of the F. and S. Association. The general secretary is receiving most satisfactory assurances from all parts of the coastal districts in re gard to the establishment of branches, and their affiliation with the central body, it being generally recognised that the best policy for them all is one of consolidated action. President Patten will be meeting the branches between Maitland and the Manning between April 5 and Easter. But for the fact that urgent Association business compels him to be in Sydney at Easter, he would have been glad to have spent more time on the North Coast. Vice-President Perry has been quietly adding new branches to his already long string, and as he graphi cally. puts it, "the oid grey horse from the Liverpool Plains will put u...

DAIRY PRODUCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911

DAIRY PRODUCE. The butter market remains dull, there being no change to report in prices since last week. At 86/ for choicest, the export trade does not prove profitable on present London prices, and one London representa tive admitted that butter exporting just now is a losing proposition. There is a good local demand for prime sorts, and the supply has so far kept up remarkably wellt but with the advent of colder weather a falling oil" may be expected, and then prices may harden. It is found, much less difficult to dispose of the second ary . and inferior grades of butter, which are more sought after for the restaurant and similar trade. Eggs are moving oil" better at the lower rates, but they are still plentiful, the favourable season for feed having saved the necks of many hens ; so that the demand does not exceed the supply. J3y the end of next week it is anticipated there will be an ad vance in rates, and, as usual, Easter eggs will be a rather expensive luxury. There is a goo...

RAILWAY YARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911

RAILWAY YARDS. Although there is not much more coming forward in the produce line than is necessary for the reasonable requirements of the trade, business at the railway yards yesterday was dull. This is to be accounted for by the nearness ,to the end of the month, and the indisposition of buyers to increase their commitments beyond immediate needs. The same influence dominated the market on Wednesday, and will probably prevail until the new month, when business is likely to show renewed activity. There were 20 trucks left over from the previous day, half of which were chair, 4 each of potatoes, and pump kins, and two of hay, and yesterday's consignments included 97 trucks, of which 43 were chaff, 15 hay, 19 pota toes, 3 maize, 12 wheat, 4 pumpkins, and one straw,making in all 117 for the day. Maize was slightly firmer, choice cold climate being 2/7%, prime North Coast, which is shoeing well, 2/6, and inferior from 2/3 per bushel. Wheaten Chaff realised from 4/3 to 4/0 for prime, an...

General Produce. SUSSEX-STREET. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911

General Produce. SUSSEX-STREET. Trade in Sussex-street was good for the tail end of the month, and a steady business was doing in most lines, but greater activity is expect ed next week, not only on account of the new month, but because of the increasing demand arising out of the necessity of supplying the re quirements of the large inrush of people during Show time. "You would never believe what a lot of rubbish is sold at Show time," said one who knew. "It is marvellous how much can be got rid of on the prin ciple of a quick sale." It is fair to auu that by rubbish he meant eat ables of second and third-rate^ qua lity, such as butter, bacon, eggs, and so forth that a responsible buyer hesi tates to traffic in. The following are cm-rent quotations for leading pro duce in the street: - Chaff.-South Australian: Wheaten, prime, £3/15/ to £4; choice, £4 to £4/5/.

SUPPLY OF BUTTER BOX WOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911

SUPPLY OF BUTTER BOX WOOD. There is such a constant and in creasing demand for butter boxes ?that any serious failure in the sup jply of the necessary timber for mak ing them would threaten a set-back to the prosperous and ever-growing butter industry. That such a con -tingency is not unexpected in the not yery distant future may be gathered from the. following para graph, taken from the " Evening Post" (New Zealand). The paper says :-" The export of New Zealand white pine to Australia, which re ceived a check about eighteen months .ago, is going on at a great rate. Several large mills in the Notrli Island are doing nothing else but .cutting kahikatea (white pine), and it is estimated that between them they are turning out fully fifteen million feet per annum. Most of tne -timber is used for butter-box mak ing in Victoria and New South Wales. White pine is also being .used for flooring and lining of houses in Sydney and suburbs, and one miu in the Waikato is exporting special .sizes...

EVILS OF THIN CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911

EVILS OF THIN CREAM. Several of the factories are com plaining that the suppliers are send ing in cream far too thin these times. This is not a new complaint. And the practice cannot be too strongly ?condemned. Very often thin cream is the direct result of carelessness ; ?sometimes the suppliers think that they will get a better return by loosening the separator screw. But the test stands up against them as an uncompromising enemy. Queens land put a brake on this looseness by fixing a fat standard of 35 per cent. At tne time this action was taken there were cases where the .cream was down as low as 12 per cent, fat, which, of course, was ab surd. Cream of low density is short-lived in warm latitudes. The development of the acid is very rap.d in the presence of large quantities of bacterial food-sugar and casein. The lactic organism, which is the valued ferment, soon perishes in thin cream, leaving as a legacy a high percentage of acid which, in most instances, is unevenly distribute...

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 31 March 1911

NOTES. In the course of a recent lecture to dairymen, Mr. M. A. U'Callaghan made a number of good points. Here are some of them : Taints in cream are cniefly due to the action of germs (bacteria or mi cro-organisms) . Germs propagate every lialf-hour in some cases. At that rate what would two germs become in twenty four hours ? They thrive best at a temperature of lOOdeg. to 102deg. Fahr. Therefore-cool your cream. If a man uses a small cooler and river water, he can cool liis cream down to 63deg. or 64cteg. Milk contains all the food, and of exactly the rignt kind, to support germ life ; they do well in it. When you have any buttermilk, in the butter you give the germs (seve ral kinds) a good chance, on account of the decomposition of the nitro genous substances in the buttermilk. Work the butter Avell. Separate as soon as possible after milking. The separating helps to clean the milk. Strain the milk before separating. Every bit of hair, soil, or dirt, that drops into the milk is ...

At their request, the jjairv Branch of the Board of Health, had sent the Government grader, who had delivered an instructive lec ture upon cream, and later on an other lecture by the Inspector of Agriculture on the conservation of fodders. The Department of Educa tion had responded to their invita tion in having the Underbank school and playground secured by a fence. Application had been made and success was anticipated for a site for a school of arts and recreation ground at Chi chester. Most probably, also, their request to have rainbow trout placed in the local streams, the Williams and the Chichester, to the Fisheries Board, will be granted. In road matters they had seen the complet...
