Swimming Baths. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

Swimming Baths. The necessity for • the erection of public swimming baths iu Ro chester, the centre of the biggest ir rigation scheme in the State, was never more strikingly apparent than on Wednesday. Mr Howlett, the swimming instructor, attended at the State school to, give the kiddies much-Heeded Instruction iu the natatory arts. What, did he find? That the river running with ia a stone throw of the school could not be used for Illustrative purposes because of the unhealthy state of the water below the weir. Here the tint was green, and to add to the glamour of the scene the depths of the Campaspe were liter ally running with bull-frogs, on which the cranes (now spared since the pea-rifle vandal has been curbed by the law) made feast. In the meantime the poor kiddies had to take their swimming lesson on the schoolroom floor. And the thermometer registering over 100 degrees! Ye Gods—Sow Ion? suf fering we are !

Cacti Seized TESTS TO BE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

Cacti Seized TKSTS TO BE MADE. Whether the alleged spineless cactus which has been introduced into Victoria by a settler near Ro chester is true to name is to be determined by a test extending over two years. At present the cacti are growing m tubs at the Customs, House, aud; the question lias yet to be settled whether the owner of the plants will agree to keep them in tubs if allowed to take possessiou, or whether the quarantine authorities arc to plant them out in different areas to ascertain whether they are likely to develop the spines again.

A Home-made Hair Grower THAT DOES MARVELS. During the last few years an nouncements have appeared occa sionally telling how to make a really good hair tonic that would actually make the hair grow, and if gives us great pleasure to learn that so many who have tried it have obtained such remarkable re sults. One lady writes that im mediately after read ing the formula she went to her chemist and had him put up as directed, 1 ounce of Lavoua de. Composee, dram Menthol Crystals, and 3 ounces Bay Rum. She took this home, and, although her hair had been falling out terribly and she was threatened with baldness, she was astonished and delighted to note that the fall ing out of the hair stopped imnie diatelv, and the hair itself began to grow in an amazing manner. In fact, she states that it has already growu nearly 8 inches in a little over two months. Moreover, her hair is now brighter, glossier and more luxuriant than ever and is still growing.

"The Express." 'Established 1873.) PUBLISHED TUESDAY AND FRIDAY MORNINGS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1914. OUR DRAINAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

" (Bxpvem." 'Established 1873.) PUBLISHED TUESDAY AND FR.I.DAY MORNINfiS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1914. OUR DRAINAGE. Owing to the level nature of our country iu the north the drainage question-is one of the great-difficul ties with which the engineers have to contend, and it has given much trouble in Rochester. The sewer age from the Moore street frontages of the railway reserve has been a vexed question between the railway authorities and our shire engineer. The former proposed to pmpty it into the lagoon at the north of the town, a proceeding against which we strongly protested, as did Mr Chaplin and the residents of the locality, for it meant the accumula tion for all time of objectionable de posits wliich there was" no possi bility of being cleared away, more especially as now at the north end of Mackay street a permanent bank has been erected across the lagoon. i Previously the floods would, to an extent, flush out the bed of the lagoon. In deference to protests the Railway departm...

MR LARSON JEERS STRIKERS HEADY TO STARVE Mr Larkin, in a speech at carain yesterday (says "The Daily Express' on December 21), scoffed at Lord Aber deen, whom he described as the "head ot the Dulbin Castle clique," He said: —We have at the head of the Castle clique the Earl of Aberdeen, and his good lady, who get £25,000 a year, and nvho have no children to keep, ag far I know. Their only function, so far as I can gather, is calling- meeting's and having exhibitions. At the exhibitions they have lecturers, who are paid five and ten guineas, to show how to feed a family of seven on eight and a tanner a week. We have -104 employers in the city who have signed an agreement to lock out and starve any who wish to belong to, or who associate with, the Irish Transport Workers' Union. The gravest fight of the twentieth century is now being carried on in Dublin, and I appeal to working men and women in this country to give their assistance. The men of Dublin are in the trenches.

Mr M'Kean thought he had a property to suit her. and on Friday motored her to Rochester and thence to the pro perty of Mr P. Devine, of Nau neella, who had about 700 acres of land, with improvements, for sale.

Summer Fallow. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

Summer Fallow. The remarkable result of 41^ bushels per acre, off about 100 acres, obt-iuerl by Mr W, G. Greeuwood, ofGerang, near Nhill, draws attention to the above practice which has beeu employed by ad vanced farmers through the Wirn mera for the last eight or ten years. On the black, friable soils of this district the work can be done with less strength than in wiuter, about five horses to the four-furrow plough being sufficient. In the siifT red soils, it is a more difficult proposi tion.; but the disc plough should reuder the practice possible even for the stiffer Goulnurn Valley soils Summer fallow leads to a mucb cleaner seed bed, as the cultivation starts the weeds with the first auta ran- raius, and these are fed off with sheep,- and turned under in winter or early spring. There are v&riatious iu the methods used; but the usual plan is to plough iu Feb ruary or Match, then Harrow, and as the weeds grow put in the sheep. After the crop is put in the fallow is skim ...

CRIME IN BURMA THREE CAUSES STATED. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 6 February 1914

CRIME IN BURMA THREE CAUSES STATED. Gloomy reports of crime continue to come from India (says the "Westmin ster Gazette" of November 2S). The judges of the Chief Court of Lower Burma, in a review of the past year's criminal justice, say they regret that the prevalence of crime in the Lower Province is an "even more seri ous feature of the administration than it was in 1911," and cannot regard with equanimity the continuous increase in the number of reported cases of of fences. They feel, however, that none of the remedies which have been suggested wholly reach to the root of the disease. The causes of crime are mainly three poverty, disease, and low vitality, and defective moral education. In last year's report the judges indi cated their opinion that the moral sense of the people was diminishing with the slackening of religious ties and obser vances, that with the decay of ancient beiiefs the Buddhist religion is losing its moral sanction as an inspiring force in the lives of its a...
