Last year 20,700 tons of, wattle bark, valued at £180,873, Were exported fronuthat country, and it is liardly to the credit of this State-the home of the wattle-to leam' that something like 1,000 tons came to New South Wales, one . firm alone taking S00 tons. .

THE BEEKEEPER. HIVES IN HOT WEATHER. VENTILATION A NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 25 December 1908

THE BEEKEEPER. HIVES IN HOT WEATHER... VENTILATION A NECESSITY. If a colony swarms during the middlo of o flow of nectar precious time will bo wasted, so whenever a colony Is found hanging outside of the hive when others are carrying nectar industriously, it should bo examined. Perhaps ventilation will be all that is needed. The old fashioned plan of raising a hive half an Inch or more on four blocks, during very hot weather, seems to overcome the hanging out tendency. Bee-keepers do not realise the advantage of having plenty of space under the brood frames when the weather Is hot. The time la coming when deep and wide entrances .will be used exclusively, and swarming will be materially rcduccd thereby. "With Italian.bees and a slow, gradual opening of tho main honoy flow, tho bees are loth fo begin work in the sections. .The will at this time crowd the brood nest, lessening the amount of brood that is produced, and will begin work in the supers only, when they are actually* forced ...

NURSERY NOTES. CHILDREN'S SCHOOL LUNCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 25 December 1908

NTTHSEBY NOTES. ^") ?? CHILDREN'S. SCHOOL LUNCHES. In preparing lunches for children to take to school, remember that children can neither work nor play well after eating "stodgy" food. The luncheon taken to school should, therefore (says a contemporary), bo of a kind that can be easily assimilated. Such, things, for Instance, as thick slabs of ct>ld pium pudding are very bad for a school lunch. Being of solid and compact consistence,; they require a considerable effort to en able the stomach Juiccs to act upon and digest them. For tills reason, very fresh breqd and buns should no,t "bo given. They are very indigestible. At the same time, It Is well to remem ber that children need nourishment. Bralnwork is as fatiguing in Its own way as bodily work, and the habit of giving children nothing for their raid-day. meal, but a few biscuits'and:.a little fruit, iff, one that cannot be too strongly con demned. . - Fruit is very useful as an adjunct to food, but it contains very little' r...
