Tni: sad incident of death by drowning at Restdown of Mar}' and James Godfrey on Thursday last impels us to refer once more to a subject ou which we have fre quently written in these columns That is the matter of having pub lic baths at Rochester wherein the rising generation might learn to awim, for a knowledge of the art should be regarded as an indispens able portion of the education of the youth of both sexes. We feel as sured that but a small percentage of the people reared in Rochester can. swim, and the few who have acquired the ability had done so uuder most discouragiug^urrouud itigs. Take the late heart-rending occurrence, In a pot-hole no larger than an ordinary room, and within a stone throw of their home, a promising boy and girl met their end when the ability to swim a few strokes would have saved their lives and the poignant anguish of their,...

Dodder in Lucerne. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 January 1914

Dodder in Lucerne. From the correspondence ou this subject there would appear to be a very undesirable increase going on in the distribution of dodder-in fected lucerne seed. Remedies for dealing with dodder when once It gets into lucerne field are useless, because once there it is practically ineradicable, and its presence is ruinous to all the lucerue within it reach. The only safety is in separating the dodder fro-m the lu cerue before sowing. To do this it is necessary to hand sift the seed. Dodder seed, being much smaller than lucerne, is easily removed by sifting though a wiie sieve having 20 meshes to the inch. Ready made sieves of this size are not readily obtainable, but a cheap, serviceable sieve for the purpose may be made by con structing a light wooden frame about 12 inches square by 3 inches deep, and tacking over the bottom of it 30 mesh wire screen made of No 32 (English gauge) round wire. Some hardware dealers do not carry such scieeu iu slock, but they will procure...

Modern Science and Feeding Stuff. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 January 1914

Modern Science and Feeding Stuff. One of the most recent develop ments of agricultural science is the physiological study of feediug stuffs. It is at the satue time one of the most practical, and we are largely . indebted to Germany for the latest knowledge dealing with the digestibility of foodstuffs, a subject hitherto somewhat neglec ted. The chemical side has re ceived more attention than the physiological, though the latter is perhaps the more important. It is now realised that a food may analyse well, but be distinctly in ferior to ansther of the same value chemically. To take an example, it is known that tbe digestible mat ter in oat straw is not nearly equal to that iu corn, which iu turn, though highly digestible, is barely equal in this way to barley, maize or peas or beans. An equal feed of corn or straw, arranged so that, each should be equal in amount of digestible matter, would not there fore give equal results. It is not, however, merely a question of their relative d...

Control of Stinkwort. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 January 1914

Coatrol of Stinkwort. "There is,'' savs Professor Per kins, of Rosen'oithy College, South Australia, "an indirect benefit which attaches to the consistet graz ing of stubbles which cannot be too strongly insisted upon. I refer to the ready mastery which it gives the farmer over stink wort (Inula graveolens). I think I can say, with out offensive boastfulness, that in the matter of stiukwort, the col lege field are in marked contrast with those of most of our neigh bors and this I attribute exclusively to the fact that every year we graze our stubble heavily and consistently with sheep as early in the season as possible. For the purpose it is very little use waiting until March to turn the sheep into the stubbles; they must have access to them whilst the weed is still in the early stage of its growth; young plants sheep will eat out completely; of older ones they will no more than nibble off the growing extremities. If a field is known to be badly infested with stiukwort it should be...

The World's Meat Prospects. PROSPECTS FOR 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 January 1914

The World's Meat Prospects, PROSPECTS FOR 1914. The annual report issued by Messrs W. Wtddel and Company, Colonial Commission Agents, has been published. The report declares that the general average quotations in the frozen meat trade in 1913 were the highest on record. Australian sup plies of beef and mutton also con itituted records. It is unlikely ' that in 1914 any further -large ex pansion of general trade will be wtinessed, but the demands for all kinds of meat will probaUy be but little contracted eveuif retail prices are permanently raised. The re- j port adds that there are mauv rea sons for assuming that present high values will be maintained during 1914, unless labor troubles occur. Should the new market in the United States develop on the ex panding lines which many antici pate. the result will be to emphasise the inherent strength of the sellers, who are already in a strong posi tion. . The Colonial Consignment Com pany, in its annual report, states that with the disapp...

In all like lihood the report of the sub-com mittee of the previous Cabinet will guide the Commission in its in quiry.

Wheat Weighing. DISCREPANCIES ALLEGED. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 20 January 1914

Wheat Weighing. DISCREPANCIES ALLEGED. A correspondent writes as follows: —The following serious discrepancy in the weighings of the 'local muni cipal and the railway weighbridges, of a load of wheat has been Wrought under my notice. The load was weighed on Saturday last at about 1 p m,, and within a few moments of each other. Seeing that the grower has had over 390 bags weighed on the weighbridge that shows the discrepau?y, and sold at the reputed weights, the matter calls for immediate attention iu the interests of growers. The shortaae shown in the following figures would have amounted to about seven shillings on the load, at the prevailing price:.— Railway Weighbill No. 8308. 17 | 1 | 14. To weighiug.

ARMY CUSTOMS CONTRASTS IN UNIFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914

ARMY CUSTOMS CONTRASTS IN UNIFORM. Has anyone ever seen an officer in uniform going in or out of the "War Office (except on the occasion of a royal function In London), or a Household Cavalry man walking about the streets in his " war paint?" If any of the major-generals employ ed at the "War Office ventured to go to work there one day in any kind of uni form, the odds are that the "War Office doctor would be sent round to see whe ther anything had happened to the poor man's brains. It is not like that in France or Ger many. If you visit a friend in the French War Office, you will find him up to the chin in uniform as he sits behind his desk. All the officers in the place are in uniform. It is the same in Berlin. In our own "War Office (says the "Daily Express") no officer wears uni form, and it is doubtful whether the colonel of the Guards regiment in Lon don puts his uniform on once'a mon.h. He is in his office every day, but lie wears his own private clothes, and the only occasio...

DOCTOR AND LAW REMARKS BY JURY [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914

DOCTOR AND LAW REMARKS BY JURY Strong remarks on the conduct of an Exeter doctor were made yesterday by jurymen at an inquest on a man named Thomas Humphreys,, who died from col lapse after ' eating indigestible food (says the "Daily News" of November 14). Humphreys's son said he went to fetch Dr. Black on Wednesday morn ins:. He told the servant to tell Dr. Black that his father was very ill. and that his mother would pay him when he came. The servant, he said, re turned and asked if the father was in sured. Being told that he was, he again returned and said: "The doctor says if your father is insured you must not disturb him again." Humphreys then fetched Dr. AJkins, but when he arrived his father was dead. air M. Browning (a juror): Don't you think Dr. Black was out of order in re fusing to attend a case of life <£nd death ? The Coroner: We have not Dr. Black here, but the law is that a doctor is not bound to go. But we may think what we like about a doctor who refuses...

SAFETY OF RAILWAYS EXPERT VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914

SAFETY OF RAILWAYS EXPERT VIEW. The precautions against train wrecks set forth by Major Pringle in his re port on the Aisgill catastrophe, and his suggestions for minimising loss of life in any future accident, were ensured in advance of careful and critical public examinations Mr J. F. Gairns, of the "Railway Magazine," said yesterday (says the "Daily News" of November 27) that there was a growing tendency to use steel underframes, and a considerable proportion of the rolling stock of the important British railways was already so fitted. Shock absorbing buffers were already used on the District to some extent, and were receiving >.the attention of railway managers throughout the country. In America they were in much more general use,, and further introduc tion here is probable. Of course, he said, the force of a col lision has to be distributed somehow. If the carriages mount the frame the superstructure takes the force, but if the frame itself has to stand all the shock, the ef...

PERFORMING ANIMALS TESTIMONY OF ACTORS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914

PERFORMING ANIMALS TESTIMONY OF ACTORS The discussion of the question of the treatment of performing animals has naturally aroused considerable in terest among our readers, with the re sult that the contents of our letter-bag have been materially increased (says "Westminster Gazette" on November 20). Colonel J. G. Hawker calls attention to the current month's issue of the "Animals' Guardian," in which Mr Mark Melford, the well-known com edian, and Mr C. E. Haverly, an actor of thirty years' experience, testify to the fact that the most horrible tor tures in very many instances are in flicted upon performing animals. Mr Melford contends that talk alone will not stir the pulse of the public, and columns of press agony will fail to raise an eyelid, let alone a hand to help. It is necessary for the public to be convinced by ocular demonstration that cruelty exists, and then judgment and punishment will quickly follow. And as a consequence, to quote his own words, "the infernal master an...

NEWS ONCE A YEAR WORLD'S LONELIEST MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914

NEWS ONCE A YEAR WORLD'S LONELIEST MISSION. Half the staff of what is perhaps the loneliest mission station in the world is spending a brief ^furlough in Eng land. That half-staff is the Rev. S. M. Stewart, of the Colonia.1- and Conunen ! tal Church Society, whose permenent ! address is anywhere in Ungava, the I great icebound province between La brador and Hudson's Bay—a thousand ' miles further from civilisation than tlie l scene of Grenfell's work in Labrador. The extent of his remoteness from the i ordinary twentieth century world may I be gauged by the fact that letters are I delivered in Ungava once a year (says j the "Daily Hail" of November 27). WHEN THE SHIP COMES IN. ' "The most anxious moment of the year," said Mr Stewart, "is when the Hud son Bay Company's vessel from England is sighted, and we are waiting to know whether alie brings us good news or ill.

No wonder customers are leaving the local stores and going to Echuca aud Kyabram to. escape the dust storms that are going ou all day iu all the main business streets. Why does not some trader take steps to get up a petftiou asking the council to re move the weigh-bridge to a more suitable place?
