Rochester Improvements. Steady progress is beiiig made in the construction of the new water tower for the Rochester Water works Trust, and the massive foundation is now completed. The base of the foundation is 36ft in dia meter, and is at depth of 3ft below the surface. First was laid a 9-inch layer of concrete, reinforced with steel bars of a thickness of ^ to J-i inch.

Obituary. MRS JOSIAH WORNER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 12 May 1914
Obituary. MRS JOSIAH WORNER. &nbsp; &nbsp; It is with regret that we have to record the death of another old dis- trict identity in the person of Mrs Josiah Worner, of Tennyson, who passed away on Thursday last at the residence of her youngest daughter, Mrs W. B. Patterson, of Prairie, at the age of 84 years. The deceased lady was a native of Eckford, Rox- burghshire, Scotland, and emi- grated to Victoria in the ship Eliza- beth in 1854, and first took up her residence in the Bendigo district, at which she married on 30th July, 1855, at the Presbyterian Manse, Rev. Dr. Nish officiating. She and her husband left Bendigo in Feb- ruary, 1858, for the Western dis- trict, in which they lived for 15 years, following farming pursuits. In 1873 they settled at Milloo, of which they were about the first residents. Mr Worner died in January, 1901, and the deceased continued to reside with her family since. She had a family of eight children, of which six survive,viz., Mrs Steen...

TAKEN FROM TEMPTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
TAKEN FROM TEMPTATION. I Day by day the girl slaved at her monotonous task, and her .heart was filled with longing to be out, if only for a few fleeting minutes, in the sun- j shine that kissed the street. | "Could you manage, ma'am," she ; venture", goaded into rebellion at last, • | "could you possibly manage to release ; ! me for a second or two?" j "Bless the girl! Whatever for?" ex claimed the mistress, as horrified as the workhouse master of whom Oliver Twist asked for more. "So that I might walk up the street and down again, ma'am. I wouldn't j dawdle, really, I wouldn't. It is the j people passing and re-passing the win- s flow that makes me envious. They seem so happy and free, while I " j Her voice trembled tearfully into si lence, but on the face of the female despot a eaintly light appeared. ; i "Ah, well, my dear, perhaps I have } been too hard on you," she said "softly. "You are young, and temptation is difficult to resist then. You shall go, dear"—she paused, and a cr...
The Wretch. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
The Wretch. "I suppose, Jane, you couldn't chink of going to the matinee in that ihabby old hat?" "Oh! you dear man. How thought ful you are. I really couldn't think ef it." "Yes! Just what I thought, so I only bought one ticket." Bread is the staff of life and flat tery is the butter. The proud man in whom self-esteem runs to excess is probably among the kappiest, for he nerer doubts his ca pacity or worth. But the really able man who has a moderate measure of self-esteem, and tries to live up to the standard he sets before himself, is more to be envied. Men have different sides for differ ent women.

Football, G0UI&lt;I3URN VALLEY LEAGUE OPENING OF THE SEASON. WEDNESDAY NEXT. (By "Forward." Fixtures. . Sheoparton v Mooroopua Rochester v Tatura Ecbuca v Kyabraui The opening matches iu connec tion with the above will be played on Wednesday next, and from the present outlook there appeats to be a fine treat in store for followers of the King of winter pastimes. It is hardly necessary to state that prior to last season the game, as far as Rochester was concerned, was as dead as the proverbial' doornail. Certainly there were matches played between Rochester and other clubs in the immediate vicinity, but at no time during the last nine or ten years did'the game reach the stan dard locally that it did last season. And it must be stated that the doings of the Rochester club were followed with much interest from start to fiuish. There were some wiseacres, who, at the commence meat of the season, predicted that Rochester could not hold its ; own against the other compet ing clubs,...
A Great Invention. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
A Great Invention. Mr. Edison, who recently tried to j take a holiday from work and is said . to have become ill through boredom, ' is apt to /bo rather crusty with visi tors to his workrooms when they ask too many questions. One day rather talkative journal ist pointed at a model. "What's that?" he asked. Mr. Edison, who was getting very weary of the man's endless questions,, replied blandly: "That, my dear sir, is a cradle which rocks by sound. You put the baby in and the louder it howls, the faster the cradle rocks!"
FOR THE BUSY WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
FOR THE BUSY WOMAN. To preveut knots iu' cotton while .;ewlDg, always thread your needle be fore cuttiDg the cotton from the spool. This will prevent both knots and twist ing. Milk will immediately and effectually extinguish the flames from gasolene or any form of petroleum, since it forms an emulsion with the oil. It the knife and lingers are slightlj buttered when seeding raisins, the work will be robbed of its stickiness and discomfort. A. tin cup filled with vinegar and placed on the back of the stove will prevent the odor of cooking from per vading the house. . If a jump of butter be put into the saucepan while boiling rice, there will be no boiling over. "t suppose," remarked^Rtiua, sar castically, "that you're busy with your social functions as usual?" "Ob, res," replied Cholly, wearily; 'but I'm beginning to discover, don't know, that society is a deuced bore." "Well, well; most of us discovered !h»t about your society long ago."
LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
LAUGHTER AND LONG LIFE. I It may be (observes the "Lancet") that some enthusiastic and laborious German statistician has already,, ac cumulated figures bearing upon the question of length of life and its rela tion to the enjoyment thereof; if se, we are unacquainted with his results, and yet have a very decided notion that people who enjoy life—cheerful people—are also those to whom long est life is given, commonplace though this sounds, there is no truth more commonly ignored in actual every-day existence. "Oh, yes, of course, worry shortens life; a.nd the contented peo ple live to be old!" we are all ready to say; and yet how many people re cognise the duty of cheerfulness? Most persons will declare that if a man is not naturally cheerful he can not make :himself so. Yet this is far from being the case, and there is many a man who is at present a weary burden to hiu relatives, miser able through the carking care of some bodily ailment perhaps, or some worldly misfortune, who, if h...
DEEP PLOUGHING OR DEEP STIRRING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
DEEP PLOUGHING OR DEEP STIRRING.' It is very essential that farmer* should discriminate between deer piouzhing and deep 6tirring (writes ihe "editor of the "Australian Farm and Home"). There is a vital differ ence between the two, so much so, in fact, that whereas perhaps, not one farmer in a hundred could, from his practical experience, urge the adop tion of the former, yet the majority trill speak strongly in favor of the tetter. Much, of courae, depends upon the oature of the land, and particularly of the subsoil; but the stirring of the latter to the depth of even 2in. or Sin. below the ordinary furrow can scarcely fail to have a useful effect in promo ting the prosperity of the succeeding crops, for the reason that by breaking up the plough pan, and otherwise loosening the subsoil it enables the plant roots to extend over a larger area and with less exertion in search of nutriment and moisture. Obvious ly, it must be a very friable subsoil that would not derive benefit from dee...
CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
CURIOUS LEGACY TO A SWISS EDITOR. A wealthy and eccentric Swiss liv ing at Moscow, who died recently from an accident, left a novel will. Per haps the most curious clause is that a certain sum every year should he paid to the present editor of the jour nal "Wochenzeitung," of Winterthur, in Switzerland, "To drink to my health." The Swiss was a native of Winter thur, and the paper was his favorite one, but the editor, who has accepted the gift to drink to a dead man's health, never saw or heard of the man. There is only one condition attach ed to the bequest: the "ceremonies" must take place on January 1 and August 1 every year until the editor's death. Pride is not all vanity or vainglory. The pride arising out of ignorance of oneself is quite distinct from a proper self-esteem which sets before one a high ideal of conduct as being due to the individual, to the family, to the school or to the race. Nothing succeeds like looking suc cessful.
AGRICULTURE. LAYING DOWN PASTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
AGRICULTURE. laying down pasture®. Practically the whole process of auc •easfully laying down laud to grass ta Contained in the following conclao bl ctfl:— It is essential that good, clean seed should be used. Many failures are due to the result of using cheap seed, mnch of which is either dead or im perfectly formed and weak. No (satis factory result can be obtained unless nearly every seed will grow, and grow vigorously. Weaklings never make good plants. It is also necessary that the land to be sown down should be thoroughly clean, and as free from greeds as possible. This Is especially important where permanent pasture is being sown down, for many of th« best passes for this purpose are small and slow in growth at first, and are easily smothered if they do not get plenty, of light and air. Another point of great importance ia the need for a finely-worked seed bod. Unless a flue tilth is obtained, and the surface is lerel and well rolled down, the finer seeds do not germinate sati...
AN INGENIOUS MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
AN INGENIOUS MACHINE, A few years ago the Soufh Austra lian Government offered a prize for the invention of a stone-gathering machine to be used on some of the barren lands that it was desired to render available for cultivation. The first competition wag abortive, for no machines were entered. Again the prize was offered, but the two or threo machines that were entered failed to do the work. Now, however, we learn (says "The Hardwareman") that two Australians have invented an im proved rake and stone gatherer for clearing stony land. The new idea was given a public trial recently, and did its work very successfully. The rake, which is triangular in shape, and works in snake fashion, leaves the stones in a straight row. It is followed by the stone gatherer, which consists of a large wheel, which picks up all the stones, large and small, and deposits them in .the dray which runs alongside. The land was too stony to use for agricultural purposes previous to the trial, and yet, after t...

A_... . WHOLESOME DRINK ER AGING AND REFRESHING The Sure Sign. A dull, persistent pain in the back, an ache that spoils sleep, and is worse in the morning; a sharp cutting paiu when bending, is a sure sign ot kidney disease. It is not really the back aching, but the kidneys, which lie just beneath the small of the back. Doan's Back ache Kidney Pills quickly relieve the kidneys and help them to drive out of the body the poisons which cause backache, dropsy, urinary disorders,rheumatism,gravel, stone. The case here' given proves that cures are thorough. Mr Frank Jolly; late proprietor of the Restdown Ho6lel, Rochester, now living in Gippsland, says.— "My back has troubled me for a longtime. I had severe pains across my kidneys, which made it very hard for me to stoop or move about much. I tried several kidney remedies, but none had the desired relief, I read of Doan's Backache Kidney Pills being a cure for back ache, and seat for a bottle. After a few doses the pain was easier, and it...
Penny Savings Banks in State Schools. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
Penny Savings Banks in State Schools. Iti pursuance of the sound prin ciple if the pennies be properly hoarded the pounds will take care of , themselves, the Education' de partment is obligingly assisting the •children to save up their odd cop pers. Whether the children, are really grateful'to the department for encouraging the system of penny bauks may be open to question. Perhaps eveu the State school pupil has not yet been educated out of a''preference" for spending his pennies on confectionery over banking theml Still the bauks are flourishing—whether as a result of parental iuflueuce, or of perfectly new tendencies on the part of the children., At the Nhill school, for example, no fewer than 127 children possess banking accounts, and the total deposits tor the year amount to L1'22. At the Heyfield- school there are 61 depositors, represent 1,52 b&aked during sixteen months; at Tdllangatta, 53 depositors with 1/23 for one year; and at Mia Mia 1C depositors with L9 for fo...
Elmore to Cohuna Railway. DELAY IN STARTING CONSTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
Elmore to Cohuna Railway. DELAY IN ~ STARTING CON ST RUCTION. Iii reference to the above Mr H. T. Dowue, secretary of' the Rail way Trust, states that although the trust sees 110 necessity to defend it self with regard to auv delay, the following facts may be of interest: —The trust was constituted on 12th March last, aud the first business was to obtain the necessary papers and documents. Although the ac tion was practically illegal the common seal was ordered before the trust was constituted and was not received till 25th March. The notices to treat were signed on 26th March and service of them com menced on 30th March, finishing on 2ud April, on the whole length from Elmore to Cohuna. Had ac tion not been taken to procure the seal before the constitution of the trust, matters would have beeu de layed about a month. When the secretary was in Melbourne, Mr Kernot distinctly informed him that the notices to treat must be served before the deposit wo,uld be required from the trust. A...
Only Teetotallers Employed. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 15 May 1914
Only Teetotallers Employed. To encourage total abstinence amongst its employes, the Phila delphia Quartz Company has issued a statement to '300 workers, declar ing an increase of 10 per cent in wages for ev.ery employee agreeing not to use strong drink. The girls in the clerical department jumped at the offer, and. everyone of the men aud boys also came forward and sigued their names to the pledge. The heads of the company say they feel that they will be more than, repaid for the additional wages by the improvement of the service which they will get front sober workmen, i They point to the fact that some of the American railways have lately decided- that they could employ only teetotallers to run their trains.
