OUR SHORT STORY LIFE AT GONGOOLI. When the Boom Came to Congooll. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
OUR SHORT STORY LIFE AT GONGOOLI. When tho Boom Game to Congooll. (By VAL JAMESON.) The discovery of a rich alluvial load, followed by finds of important lodo for mations carrying shotty and fino gold, brought tho boom to Gongooli. A con tinuous procossion of pioneers invaded our peaceful settlement, scrambled for town lots, and established themselves in various enterprising businesses. They were a motley crowd, guided by tho principle of "De'il take the hind most." Mrs. Two-miles' goats stared in genuine amazement at tho impudent confiscation of their reserves, and seemed inclined to resent the invasion if only King Billy would load tho as sault. But the first jam-tin shied by 0110 of tho interlopers put tho deposed monarch to flight. He swung * off \'io tho Ncvor-Never country, where prospectors aro not fol lowed by his devoted family. Like tho ship celebrated in song, tho herd never returned to their sorrowing own ers, or sent any intimation of their whereabouts. Their objection ...

SLAVES OF THE NEEDLE. In Darkest Sydney. NO. II. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
SLAVES OF THE NEEDLE. Darkest Sydney. NO. II. Skirt-makers in Victoria to-day can earn fifteen peneo (1/3) an hour or £1 per week, but in Sunny Now South Wales there is nothing at all to pro tect our women. At a house in D t-street there were two daughters, one worked in a factory making artificial flowers at 5/ a week; the other girl worked at home making artificial sprays. She had to paste, wire, mount and tie them into bundles of 30. One gross per hour was the average output, for which she re ceived 3d. She had been five years at the trade. These specific eases which arc typical of very many others should be amnle evidence to prove the existence ol' direful sweating. Many more figures could be given showing the dreadiully inadequate remuneration giving for the making, of our finery in the way of un derclotTiing, etc. Mrs. IDwyer contends that the sweat ing system could be controlled by State supervision; that employers should be compelled to keep a register showing the rates paid...
BEEKEEPER. STARTERS OR FULL SHEETS OF FOUNDATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
BEEKEEPER. STARTERS OR FULL SHEETS OF FOUNDATIONS. It Is an oft-debated question (says the "Otago Witness") whether it is best to use starters or full sheets of founda tion in our frames. AVe use both, and we would not like to be positive as to which is (jest. Rather we thlnlt that there are times when either is best. We have had this very pointedly brought home to us this season. We 'prefer when we can got the full sheets built out without sagging or buckling to use them, but wherever they have been used by a swarm of fair size they have buckled badly and made poor combs. The weight of the bees and the high temperature of a wax-building colony have caused this. Where, on the other hand, they linvo been used in the super or in extending the brood nest they .havo made "beautiful combs. The rule seems to be that wherever the bees take gradual possession of them the weight is not too heavy and the result ing combs are straight. On the other hand, we have used a good many start ers to s...

FOUL BROOD DISEASE. HOW TO DETECT IT. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
FOUL BROOD DISEASE. HOW-TO DETECT IT. 1 An American apiarist in "Ranch ana Range" tells how a beginner inny de tect1 foul brood in the hive. He writes: "Everyone who has a swarm of bees is Interested in keeping them in healthy, vigorous shape so they will re turn the largest amount of honey. Foul brood is the only serious disease which affects our colonies, so that the man who understands the curing of this dis ease need fear little from bee diseases. We are not troubled with the moths, and the wintering problem never causes us the worry that the eastern bee keeper becomes subject to, "Foul brood, however, is a serious menace, .for I know of- no way of pre venting it entering ray bee yards unless I personally inspect and tare for all the bees within flight range of my bees, Nar turally this is a physical impossibility, :and so.' the' only fea^lble .course'for rne'; .to follow is to keep a sharp look-out among my- own bees and whenever'the disease appears, treat it. £Ct once or a? so...

THE DAIRY. CAUSES OF POOR MIMt. The ;Swiss have come about as near reducing the dairy^busiriiss to a science as any people 011 earth. It is said that they are very particular to preserve their milk so that it is kept from objec tionable odors and flavbrs. Dr. Gerber, a well-known Swiss chemist, has issued the following list of causes of poor milk for.the information of ills countrymen. The list is certainly very interesting to every dairyman in this, country: Poor, decayed fodder or irrational methods of feeding. Poor and dirty water used as drink ing water or for washing the utensils. Foul air in cow stables, or ,the cows lying in their own dung. Lack of cleanliness in milking, manure particles on the udder. Keeping milk long in too warm, poorly ventilated and dirty places. Neglecting to cool the milk rapidly directly after milking. Lack of cleanliness in caring for the milk, from -which the greater number of milk taints arise. Cows' disease in any way, especially witli udder disea...

. POULTRY. SmiTH/ATING THE EGG YIELD. FOODS AND TREATMENT. Mr G. A, Palmer, a \Vell-lcnowh Eng- ' lish poultry writer, says:-"I am fre- ' (lucntly asked what !is the best thing . to force' egg production. Many seem to think that there is some condiment, if they did but know it, which , alone would convert an idle lot of fowls into workers. There is 110 great secret , about securing winter eggs. It is summed up in continuous good manage ment. First have a good breed; next a good strain in that breed; then good rearing underhealthy conditions; and lastly,'good feeding and comfort, with- 1 out coddling, for the hens. ! "For perfect health, a quiet life, with i good plain food and sufficient variety in work to avoid monotony, is best. Ex citement is followed by depression.
