[?]UE TALES OF PLUCK AND DARING. Captain Wilfred Howell's Amazing Feat. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 February 1914

SUS TALES OF PLUCK AND DARING. Captain Wilfred Howell's Amailng Feat. Tiicre is no more courageous body of men than those pioneers of civilisa tion who, taking their lives in their hands, penetrate savage countries in ibo interests o£ commerce, to survey and open up the land. These words, once uttered by the late Mr Cecil Rhodes, are recalled by riie gallant exploit of Captain Wilfred Howell, of the Glamorgan Volunteer Artillery, who, in 1807, left England for the West Coast of Africa to make ,i survey for the construction of a new railway. Three months iaCer he readied Sierra Leone, and found himself among the Kwaia people in the neighborhood of Songo Town, which is about thirty miles up-country. At that time the Kwaias were showing signs of rebel lion, and long before Howell reached their territory he had be-in warned not to cuter.

SANDISON EYPr.ATMQ Dr Sandi^oii, M.D., M.O H.. I yesterday banded our represents- I tive thefollowing for publication: I "1 would like to correct a misstate-1 ment that has appearedin the oress j lately that I have condemned the liver water, as it has been the cause 1 of typhoid fever. That is not quite j correct. The few cases of typhoid fever have certainly admit'ed. to having drank river water, but to prove that the river water is the cause of typhoid it would have to be examined bacteriologically at the time for typhoid germs. There have only been six cases of typhoid fever duriug 1913, so I do not think that the river can contain mauy virulent germs considering the num ber of people that drink the water Rochester, as faras I can find out, is as free from typhoid fever and infectious diseases generally as any other town m the north, However I should certainly like to see a scheme to bring the channel water into the town, as it certainly would he preferable to river water, as it ...

Benefits of Deep Stirring. AMERICAN EXPERIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 February 1914

Benefits of Deep Stirring. AMERICAN EXPERIENCE. One of the American agricultural journals" refers to the fact that a large proportion of the wheat lands show that they are "starved for humus."' You can see that by looking at the crops. What can be done to improve this condition? It is evident that the soil must bf first put into cotid tion to conserve more humus. The first is deep Stirling of the subsoil. We tried that on one 15 acre iield which led from a high, raiher stony ridge down to bottom land composed of a deep black soil. The whole field ridge and bottom was 12 inches deep. The good effect of this work is best seen ou the ridge. There the soil was put into condition by the deep stirring to hold the mois ture that came to it. A strata of subsoil about 2 inches below the surface had been packed down by the plough sliding over it for many years, but the deep stirring broke it up into fine soil, and the three crops that have been grown upon it since—maize, barley and lucerue — ...

Proposed Swimming Baths. deputation to water trust. At Friday night's meeting of the Rochester Water Trust, the chair man introduced Messrs T. R. Daly, W. R. Booker and S. Haisman as a deputation in connection with the proposed swimming baths. Mr Daly said they had been de putated to interview the trust and ask for permission to build the baths on the trust reserve, which had been selected by the committee as most suitable foi the purpose. The idea was to establish baths so that thf children would have an opportunity of learning to swim. Swlmniiuu was a healthy exercise, and a know ledge of it would also prevent manv accidents, which occurred almosi daily. Towns-people generally thought the movement a good one, and they now waited on the trust to see if it would help them iu the matter of the-site. The baths would cost about L300, and they hoped for favorable consideration of their request. In answer to the chairman Mr Daly said thev wanted apiece of land 135ft. by 75ft. Messrs Book...

"The express." (Established 1873.) PUBLISHED TUESDAY AND FRIDAY MORNINGS TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1914. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 February 1914

" ®he 'Established 1873.) PUBLISHED TUESDAY AND FRIDAY MORNINCiS TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24-, 1914. The milk and butter supplies of the metropolis show a marked tendency towards a rising market. The maize fodder crops are reported to betray a great shortage, and the truth of Mr John Roy's repeated ex hortations to conserve the lucerne stacks.- In view of a big demand ahead for the fodder, from afar, seems to be borne out. With the continued spell of dry weather, the shortage of succulent feed elsewhere than on the irrigated areas growers should soon be getting a good return for their supplies, though some set tiers may yet regret the overdoing of sheep-grazing tactics in this regard. We sincerely trust the promises of profit will be realised. When our settlers succeed the success of tlae town is nssured. Cool Change reached Rochester os Saturday evening. The laggard received a warm reception. Win dows and doors were thrown wide open for the visitor to enter. Hot Spall's eclipse was hailed...

Jurisdiction over Bandsmen, The power that the Victoria Band Association possess over registered plavers was debated at the meeting of the ' Victoria Baud Association when the secretary (Mr. S. Jamie sori)' reported that A. Hobson, a member of the Geeiong Harbour Trust Band, had played as a pro fessional cornet player with the Latrobe, Tas., Band at the Buruie, Tasmania, contests, on January- 1st, 1914. He said that permission was given to Hobson to play, as he was a friend of the bandmaster, but it vras pointed out to him that if he played as a profesiona! he would have to stand down for two years, and pay a fee of 10s. Mr Williams cou'ended that the Asso ciaiiou bad no jurisdiction over the player, as he went to another State, and played in an unregistered contest. The president said there was nothing official before the meeting, as ihe secretary had merely read a report in the press. The rules of the association did not cover what this man had done.
