HOT WEATHER TROUBLES OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 27 January 1911
HOT WEATHER TROUBLES OF CHILDREN. The chief digestive trouble of chil dren during the hot -weather is that which is known as summer diarrhoea, which occurs each year regularly, and causes more severe illness and deatli among very young children than al most'any other form of disease. The first question which arises is -Why should there be this immense number of deaths from diarrhoea in hot weather, and such a compara tively small number in cold weather? A doctor of large experience answers the question in the following way : - Germs are the Seeds of Disease. The essential cause of the disease is a germ, and that this particular germ grows and develops best at a time Avhen the temperature is high. But besides the essential cause, the germs of the disease.. there are various contributory causes. For in stance. unhealthy and unhygienic sur roundings, dirt of every kind and de scription, and bad sanitation. Most important is the infection of milk. This, thu chief food of children, is ve...

MILKING LIFE OF A COW. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 27 January 1911
MILKING LIFE OF A COW. How long does a cow remain pro fitable in a herd ? This is a question that a dairy farmer has to settle many times each year. Most own ers-the writer among them-have had individuals that remained good milkers till beyond their twelfth, or even fourteenth, year, but the great majority have "petered out" long be fore that time. At the other end of the scale is the newly broken-in hei fer, which seldom milks well for the first year, or until she has been drill ed up, as it were. It is generally considered that on an average cows improve up till their seventh year, and begin to decline after that. In the ease of a good animal, however, the decline is not very bad till the tenth or even the twelfth year. In contradistinction to this, however, is the liability to disease-milk-fever, tubercle, etc.-any of which may cany the animal oil' prematurely, or compel her to lie "scrapped," Tu bercle is l.lje must likely cause of shortening the useful life of an ani mal, and a...

The Market Mirror WOOL RETURNING TO BETTER CONDITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 27 January 1911
The Market Mirror II b = WOOL RETURNING TO BETTER CON DITIONS. When auction wiles wore resumed in tlio Sydney market on Monday last, there was broader and more general competition, with values dis tinctly in sellers' favour. That is, compared with last week,'when values were generally 10 per cent, below tho rates ruling a week prior to the Christinas-New Year recess. Up to the holiday adjournment, the Con tinental- section of buyers was ' the most active in tlio market, with York shire more or less in the background, and America only operating'in. a ten tative manner. A .M'calcncss pervaded the market a few ."days prior to the holiday recessj but it was expected, in the light of wool supplies, that this tone in buyers' favour would not hold when the balance of the clip came to be catalogued. Instead of such proving to be the case, there was; a distinct fall, first in Ho bar 6, and, then in Melbourne and Geolong, which continued in Sydney when auc tions were opened for the second hal...
