Rochester Shire Council. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 30 January 1914

Rochester Shire Council. The monthly meeting of the council was held yesterday in the Shire Hall, there being present Crs Crawford (president) Dobson, Ran kin, Mathews, Keogh, Doherty, McMaster, McIntyre and Martin. The president welcomed Cr Keogh, while regretting the loss of Mr Graham, but they had a capable man in his place, and he was an agricultural member. Cr Keogh was a farmer born and bred in the district. If he gave as much satis faction as a councillor as iu other capacities he should prove an ac quisition to the council. Other councillors spoke to similar effect. Cr Keogh made suitable acknow ledgments, and said he would try to deserve the nice things said of him. He only hoped to fill the position as well as Mr Graham. He would try to work harmoniously with other councillors.

Cow Feeding Rations, [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 February 1914

Cow Feeding Rations, Au exchange of opinions upon the subject is common ;imoug dairy farmers in America. One con tributor's experience is:—"In compounding a ration, a number of things should be taken into con sideration other than the nutritive ratio of the ration. We consider a combination of lucerne hay and maize ensilage one of the best for dairy cows, but it does not fuliil the requirements in every case. Many herds that receive no grain iu con nection with this combination have made good records. Oftentimes it is more economical to use the feeds alone, but some grain must be used to get a maximum produc tion. Cows giving a good flow of milk will use a little grain in addi tion to the ensilage and lucerne very profitably. " A combination of lucerne, hay, and maize ensilage may be supple mented very satisfactorily with a grain mixture of JOUlb crushed maize, JOUlb cru«hecl oats and 2li0lb distilleii.' dried grains. This ration is a little narrowci than necessary, but with the luc...

Wheat Tests. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 February 1914

Wheat Tests, lu the drier wheat-growing dis tiicts of the Stale llie customary practice is to sow wheat ou land which lias been bare fallow the pre vious year, though large areas are put in oil stubble grounl. In the uioi'ster districts of the State bare fallowing is less necessary than in the drier portions, where the con servation of sufficient soil moisture is of the utmost importance. With the view of securing data as to the yields obtained from wheat when sown after various forage crops compared with wheat sown in bare fallow, a series of experiments was commenced at the Ruthergleu Ex perimental Farm two years ago, and the second year's results are now to liand. l'lots of rape, rye, vetches, peas, barley and berseem were sown in 1912, and continued during the winter and early spring. Plots were thus worked up and sown in 1813 with Federation wheat care being taken to give each plot exactly similar treatment with re spect to seed and manure. In order to arrive at an estimate of ...

THE TEST OF FRIENDSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 February 1914

THE TEST OF FRIENDSHIP. Tu friendship, as ia laont matters, it is the little things that count. Not promises of eternal fidelity, hut iliouglitfuluess about trifles assures U3 that our friend really cares for us. The one who knows instinctively what we would like for a gift, what subjects of conversation may be un pSeakii'U to us, what subject we do not like to hear jested about—who, knowing too when we wish to be si lent, humors us in our wish—that is the one with whom we love to asso ciate. Wo can never retain a friend long if we are not willing to take pains to find out his peculiarities and respect thorn. • If the aviator is really a "man-bird" to-day, rs many writers seem bound to call him, will there not be a to morrow v.-'uen common politeness will rone us to call women aviators r'lady kirds"?

Bags on Hire. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 February 1914

Bags on Hire. A custom which lias much to recommend it, from the producer's point of view at any rate, holds in many parts of the old country if not in all. This is in connection with grain bags, which are not purchased each season by farmers, aud practi cally givcu away as here, but arc hired often on a system which makes them free to farmers. The hiring companies have depots at every centre, from which the bags cau be hired, aud to which they are returned when finished with. Asa rule the farmers do not market their grain, but sell it to the miller often before it is thrashed, contract ing to deliver so many bushels at a fixed price, as is occasionally doue here before harvest starts. The bags are then obtaiued from the hiring firm in the name of the miller. They are large stout bags, holding four bushels when tied round the neck, which is the cus tomary way of closing them. The charge is usually }'jd per bag per week, but iio charge is made for so many days (about teu I am given t...
