BARBARA. I. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
BARBARA. I. Mark Tempest looked round the pretty flower-decked room, and then at the pale, proud face of a woman who stood at an open French window gazing into the sunlit garden beyond. A sense of unreality was on him. The once familiar room seemed strange arid cold, as though merged into the emotions and feelings and personality of the woman, who had just demanded freedom from lier en gagement. • . "You cannot mean it, Helen. It is some hideous mistake. " And Mark looked with pain-filled eyes at the lovely profile. Helen Churton turned coldly ana lytical eyes upou him. "I do mean it," with cruel emphasis. "I cannot marry a—a " "A thief," he concluded, bitterly. "No, 1 suppose not. But I certainly gave you, of ail people in the world, credit for believing in me. I see 1 am mistaken." A transient look, half pain, hall annoyance, passed over the beautiful features. "I have not yet said that I believe you guilty, but"—with a trace of irri tation—"cannot you see that it is impossible fo...
LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
| LUCERNE AS A .SOIL RESTORER, i Mr. S. P. Keys, writing in "Hoard's Dairyman," says:—When we come to the question of the upkeep of the fer tility of our farms, we find that we face quite a sei®>us problem. From what source are we to restore the humus, or vegetable matter, that is being rapidly exhausted by continu ous cropping? Manures and commercial fertilisers, while valuable, are not always obtain able. Farmers waste the barnyard manure, and feel that they cannot af ford to buy commercial fertilisers., To fill the bill there must be something within easy access of every farm. The answer to this is—green manures. The king of legumes used in green manuring is lucerne. Not only does it answer every requirement of a green manure, but is is also one of the most valuable of the standard crops. You may be cropping a given piece of land to lucerne, obtaining each year from live to seven cuttings, and at the same time you have at hand the means of restoring the fertility of the soil u...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
II. Barbara watched the tall, athletic figure o£ Mark Tempest until a bond in tne road hid him from sight, aud then turned swiftly on her brother. "It was you who stole those notes,'' she said, in a low, accusing voice. "You put them in Mark Tempest's coat—don't attempt to deny it, you mean, contemptible coward, you!" The young man's face whitened. "For Heaven's sake, Barabara, don't look at me like that. I was mad with misery. I—I " "I suppose you've been losing at cards again?" she went on, relent lessly. He gave a weary gesture of assent, and the girl's lip curled. "I meant to put it back," he cried, desperately. "Of course!" with biting sarcasm; "they all say that." "Don't rub it in, Baba," he implor ed. "I Bwear I never thought it would come to this. I thought the luck would turn. If old Lea hadn't turned up so unexpectedly I should have been safe for three weeks, and that would have given me time." The girl eyed him scornfully. "Why didn't you face the music in stead of fasten...
SMOKING WHILE MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
SMOKING WHILE MILKING. Do not allow dogs or loafers to be round at milking time. If any acci dent occurs by which a pail-full or partly full of milk becomes dirty, dp not try to remedy this by straining, but reject all this milk, and rinse the pail. We remember' one day, when on a visit, seeing a milking hand smoking a pipe. Suddenly, he. spoke to the cow, and the pipe fell from the man's mouth into the bucket. He made one grab into the milk-bucket, put the wet pipe into his pocket, and went on milking! Then, what about the ash from a pipe or cigarette fall ing about everywhere? Sack the man or boy who smokes while milking.
THE SON OF A LAZY FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
THE SON OF A LAZY FARMER. My neighbor started out to plough, He's got his grain rll stacked up now, And he says he wants to kill the weeds Before they've ripened up their seeds. He says what seeds are down below, All will sprout and start to grow; Then when the frosty days come on They'll all be nipped and dead and gone. I don't take stock of things like that, I'd rather fan me with my hat; I'll never be so big a fool To try to plough till days get cool. Perhaps the weeds will go to seed, But I could never see the need Of keeping fields so nice and clean That not a thistle could be seen. If all the weeds were frozen now, There wouldn't be no use to plough.
SCALY LEGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
SCALY LEGS. Scaly legs are contagious (as are most diseases of poultry), and can tie cured by washing with, carbolic soap and hot water, painting legs with kerosene or wood preserving oil oc casionally. This unsightly enlarge ment of the leg is caused by a para site (sarcoptes mutans), and is close ly associated with uncleanliness and over-crowded runs.
RULES FOR THINNING FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
RULES FOR THINNING FRUIT. The question of thinning fruit is an ever-present one to the orchardist. One rule which is practised to. some extent is for the grower to size up all the conditions and determine how many cases of fruit the tree should carry. It is a small matter then to determine how many fruits there should be left on the tree. The re sults at first are likely to be consid erably off the estimate, but this is very largely a matter of practice and variation of seasons. Another rule which might be taken in conjunction with the previous one, is to thin plums to about two, two and a-half, or three inches, peaches four to eight, depending on the easi ness of the variety; pears and ap ples, five to seven inches apart. In thinning pears and apples, it is only with early varieties that more than one should he left on any fruit spur, and with these early varieties part of the crop may be removed in one picking, and ther balance later. With winter varieties of apples it •is a good ...
GRIT A NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
GRIT A NECESSITY. A lack of this causes a slow supply of eggs, and if fowls have not the materials for digesting their food, it is impossible for them to get on, for the proper nutriment must be extract ed from the food for the production of eggs. Oyster shell grit for lime, as well as sea shell or pebbly beach grit, is best for the purpose, as it is very hard and sharp, and a small quantity goes a long way. It should be kept in a trough in the run for the fowls to help themselves to.
DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHICK. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHICK. Present-day poultry science gives these facts in tiie development of the chick:— Twelve hours after incubation has begun the lineaments of tiia head and body are discovered. Close observa tion has l'ounu ine heart to 'beat .y the close of the day. At the end of 48 hours two vesicles of blood are distinguished, pulsations of which are visible. At the fiftieth hour an auricle of the heart appears. At the end of 70 hours undistinguished wings, and on the head two bubbles for the brain, one for the bill, and two oth ers for the fore-part and the hinder part of the head. The liver appears towards the fifth d.p.y. At the end of 131 hours the first voluntary motion is observed. Seven hours later the lungs and stomach become visible, and tho intestines, the loins, and the upper jaw are seen at the end of 142 hours. The seventh day the brain, which is slimy,, begins to have some consistence. At the 190tb hour of incubation the bill opens, and the fiesh appears on th...
Rochester Irrigator's League. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
Rochester Irrigator's League. A meeting of the leagi'c was heid ill tlie library yesterday afternoon; the president (Mr Buubury) in the chair. There were also present Messrs Ross, Prmklnnd, L/O^au and Hubhle. Mr Frankland deprecated the suiall attendance, and thought that a society was hardly worth keeping up when such little interest was taken in the business. They had had no meeting for a long time and now there were only 5 on': of 15 members present. The president said that it would be a pity if the associations or league fell through, for they had been a power for the benefit of the settlers aud had still tuuch work before them. The Naaueelia representatives present said that their body was going strong, and they were arranging for a course of lectures by the Agricultural Department. Also thev were shortly having sports in aid of a fund, to purchase ground on which to erect a public hall. TKe secretary, Mr Russell, suggested that a picnic spoils be organised, the proceeds to go ...
IRON FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
IRON FOR FOWLS. Iron is present in the fowl's body; part oi this iron is in an organised iorni in the red corpuscles oi tlie blood. The total amount of iron is small, but nevertheless, it is- of great importance, and a deficiency re ouits in anaemia'. One frequently finds that eggs laid by insufficiently Jed fowls have pale yolks. The coloring of the yolk i3 due to pigments,"'and, possibly, to the pnospholipine termed lecithin. Iron, m an organised f?>rm, is found in the ash of the egg. Vegetable foods, es pecially clover and lucerne, are rich in minerals, and their use results in richiy-colored yolks. Anaemic fowls may be easily treated by administer ing to each five drops of perchloride of iron in a teaspoon of well-sweeten ed milk. This is a very cheap tonic, and is better in many ways than the ordinary sulphate o£ iron (copperas).

Rochester Co-operative But* tar and J Canning Factory Co. Ltd. COMPLETION OF NEW PRE MISES. OPERATIONS COMMENCED ON THURSDAY. The new factory of the Roches ter Co.operative aud Canning B"ac tory Co. I/d. has now been com pleted, and active operations com menced yesterday. The building is on a fine elevated site facing Vic toria street, west of the railway liue aud it occupies an acre of ground adjoining and north of the Presby terian Manse and the company has the option of taking in another lialt acre. For a few days previous to commencing active work on the pre mises the machinery was set going for testing purposes, when it was found that everything worked smoothly and to the complete satis faction of allcoucerned. The build ing consists of two storeys, and is a conspicuous feature of the landscape so, much so so that in achat with Mr Elwood Mead on the balcony of the Sham rock hotel he directed attention to it, observing that it was au out ward and visible manifestation of 'lie pr...
FATTENING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
FATTENING POULTRY. The best and, at the same time, moat economical method of fattening ail kinds of poultry is to lteep them in coniinement for a short time before they are required for table. A good deal of judgment, however, has to he exercised in deciding the length, of time tiiis coniinement is to last, for if overdone, even in the slightest de gree, the birds rapidly lose flesh and go back in condition. Strange as it may seem, once this begins, no amount of feeding will restore either their weight or condition till after they have regained their liberty again. For this reason the poultry must be confined for too long a period before they are required.
Our Irrigation Areas. WELCOME THE COMING VISITORS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
Our Irrigation Areas. WELCOME THE COMING VISITORS. Karly-uext mouth a large ex cursion party will pay a couple of days' visit of inspection to the Ro chester irrigation settlements, and will be afforded a fair opportunity to ascertain for themselves the possibilities of success offered by the nature of the soil, the water supply and other attendant circum stances. This is what we have long urged both in these columns and in interviews with Commis sioners. Hitherto the custom has been rather to rush over large areas at express speed—much of the time being occupiel in social functions— and the party reached Rochester, the last place visited, jaded and longing for reat. They were al lowed an hour or two to make ob servations that would properly take several days, and then run back to Melbourne. But our Rochester areas are far too important to be treated as the Cinderella of the settlements, and we are pleased to see that amends will be made in the cotnins: excursion. In the words of Mr...
NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
NEWLY-ENGAGED GIRLS. Why is it tliat a newly-engaged girl is a thorn in the flesh to all her dis engaged sister women? To begin with—observes a lady correspondent (who is not newly-en gaged)—she is odiously sorry for you because you don't happen to be a betrothed person also. You may have heaps of chances, may know that you are really , and truly quite nice, but tlie most ordinary girl who ever seiz ed upon her first proposal will patron ise you until you feel almost ready to accept anyone. When she isn't irritating- you, the newly-engaged girl is rather funny— over the ring more especially. This sacred object for a few weeks appar ently occupies the place of sun, moon, stars and all light. If it can be said to flash, it does on every conceivable occasion. And then, in other ways, she is so hopelessly selfisu. But perhaps the personal vanity of the engaged girl enrages her femin ine acquaintances more than any of her numerous failings. To have ,to stand by and behold an insignifican...
TELEGRAMS MELBOURNE, Thursday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
(From Our Own Correspoudeut.) MiiLBuUKNii, Thursday Eveuiu«r. Mr T. Mouaghau,. mauagei of the Sydney Telephone Exchange and MrG, Morgan, manager of til™ Melbourne Telephone Exchange, have been selected by Hon A. Wynne, Postmaster-General, to visit Germany, the United Slates and England and report on the latest tele phone developments. They leave ill February and return in August. The City magistrates, to-dav fined Cyril Crosby, chaffeur, £5 and suspended his certificate for three months for kill ing a horse in a collision in Lonsdale street. The magistrates said it was de plorable that a car should be plac-d in the hands of a young man like Crosby, who claimed the right of way and con sidered the horse should have got out of his road.

COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. There are certain people in the world whom the more you think of the less you think of them. Surely it isn't extraordinary to get pearls out of a matchbox. Lots of girls have got diamonds out of mugs before now. According to a Paris paper, "Seventy per cent, of the French people live in one room." But it must be a jolly big room. A Russian dwarf of 4ft. has, we learn, fallen in love with a St. Peters burg lady of 6ft. 2in. That's not fall ing in love—that's climbing up to it. "It is rare indeed," says a contem porary, "that a householder can get a shock from his electrical installa tion." He generally gets that when the bill comes along.
Sporting. BOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 9 January 1914
Sporting, BOWLS. The affiliation of the Rochester club with the N.W.B.A, afforded the locals au opportunity of sending a four to Beudigo on Wednesday to take part in the rink tournament. Rochester's representatives were Prior Meredith, P Fitzgerald, Dr. Lease and J. li. Humphris. The matches were played on the South Bendigo and Beudigo greens, and IS rinks took part. It was decided that each game consist of 15 ends, and before being fiually disposed of each rink had to be beateu in three games. The locals met the South Bendigo quartette (Gardner, Thom son, eWard and Hall) in their first game, and this proved to be tli°ir best showing in the series. Prior ltd off with four in the first end, atid in the next three ends Hill put 011 six. At the sixth end Prior drew level, but Hill again got away snd had 10 to t twoeuds later. A servicable 3 and two singles placed Prior ahead at the eleventh end. In the remain'ng 4 ends Hull put on 7 whilst the Prior did not again score, South Beudigo t...
