WVatever else the Briton mily pride hiiself (or let us conims, hiersoel), upon, it is not in the matter of cheap an(l elhcient cooxing. As an example of this the writer quotes toe case of a Belgian family, the tleding oe which was entrusted to a well-meaing Lonldon housewife, who stalrved her poor guets on expens,-e tinned jams and indigestible beef steak. Some kind expert succeeded in having the Belgians subsidisod to look alter them selves, Immediately the exiles put themselves upon it tasty and nourish ing diet at somiething under one half what their English hostess spent.

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 12 March 1915

OF RURAL INTEREST (By ''Rusticus.'') Already the problem of what is to be dlone to furnish suitable employment for soldiers at the termination of the war is exercising the minds of peop)le in England. it is interesting to note the direction in which its consideration is leading. There would appear to be possibilities of an awakening to the. great field for employment that lies in the development of rural Australia. There is also the realisation that it is the vast ecpty spaces in the outlying portions of the Empire, and particular ly Australia, that wrill be the chelf ele ment of danger in future. Earl Gray is at the forefront of a movement that commissioned Mr HII.E.Easton, secretary of the British Immigration League to inquire into the matter. Mr. Easton says that in Western Australia Earl irey has been offered 100,000 acres of fttilt land, in proximity to the railway, at £2 an acre, purchase money not to be paid for twenty years. The owner further otrers to advance £50,000 as wor...

SOME USEFUL HINTS ABOUT MILKING THE COW. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 12 March 1915

SOME USEFUL HINTS ABOUT MILKING THE COW. By R. R. Kerr (Dairy Supervisor), in '"'Journal of Agriculture."' In the minds of most people, includ ing many dairymen, very little thought or attention is given to the milking of a cow. Many of the failures at dairy ing are due to a lack of kuowledge of this important subject, and when that is missing, the cows soon feel and show the results. They gradually go dry, and, with poor returns, dairying is branded an unprofitable industry, and the cows as dulffers. What constitutes a good milker, or by what method a 1man can get the utmost from a cow leaving out the question of feed-is a matter too often neglected. I regret to state that the milking of cows on many dairy farms seems to be a secondary consideration, the apparent object be ing to get the cows out of the yard as soon as possible. Now, while it is necessary that cows should be milked quickly, they must not be rushed through. A large majority of our best cows are of a sensitive nature...
