A Pioneer Company Passes JOHN COOKE'S RECORD. EXAMPLE OF ORGANISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 11 April 1924
A P[@ne@r Company Passes JOHN COOKE'S RECORD. EXAMPLE OF ORGANISATION. Companies, like individuals, live their allotted span of years and pass. A thousand pities that such a monu ment to the marked organising ability and business acumen of one of the great outstanding pioneers of the Australasian meat industry, as reveal ed by the John Co6ke Proprietary, Ltd., should be threatened with ex tinction. THE FOUNDER. The late John Cooke, the founder of this company, left Belfast, his native city, for the Antipodes a very sick young man. Landing in New Zealand, he was for a short period on the warehouse staff of one of the leading merchants of the South Island.

This proved the turning point in a phenomenally successful business career — one of the Directors of the paper possessed big pastoral inter...

CARBON BISULPHIDE AS A RABBIT DESTROYING AGENT. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 11 April 1924
CARBON BISULPH.DE AS A RABBIT DESTROYING AGENT. In undertaking the destruction of rab bits many systems have been tried, such as Digging Out, Poisoning, Trapping, Dog ging, Digging, and Ploughing-in, etc., but — This article proposes to deal with Fumi gation, which method, when conducted, or carried out in a proper manner, gives the best results, principally because the rabbiis are killed and buried underground, where the carcases decay, closed away from flies; furthermore, thi- rabbits do not co-operate in their own destruction, bnt are killed in quantities regardless of sex or size. Several fumigants or gasses, both in dry form and liquid form, have been experi mented with from time to' time. Too often those experiments have been conducted in a manner, and on a scale that gives no definite data except that they are success ful in a minor way. For very many years Carbon Bisulphide has been recognised as the most ell'ective material for fumigating or gassing rab bit's. In America it...
