PROFIT IN RAISING GEESE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 6 June 1902
tROFIT IN RAISING GEESE. Nothing in the poultry line requires lees care i nl expense than the rearing of geese, and nothing brings in more hand gome returns. On the other hand, £eese wili prove a failure without proper know ledge of their peculiar requirement?. Tuey need but little shelter, and except when young, or being fattened, no food' but grass. They are very haidy, live to an oid age, and. are a bexehc to the land after the grain is off from tbe land of the farmer. In three different ways they bring in revenue : by the sale of the geese, their eggs, and their feathers. Goslings rbach maturity early, and take lees expensive food than any other kind of poultry. The young goslings rarely die except by accident. Th y are good layers for eight or ten years or more. A gander should not be kept longer than three years, as young ganders insure great fertility in the eggs. On the contrary, a goose of three years or over will lay wore eggs, and more fertile ontis, than will a younger o...
WATER DRINKING. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 6 June 1902
WATER DRINKING. Many people talk and act as if it were a very injurious practice to drink water, especially between meals, and in any con siderable amount. It is hard to guess how such a mistaken notion arose, for water is the natural beverage, and when pure, a most beneficial article of diet and an exceedingly valuable remedy, for which there iB no efficient substitute. Average people can take from two to four quarts of water daily with great ad vantage. The body is largely made up of water, and all the tissues need a proper supply of it. Sometimes people avoid water-drinking because it is said to produce stoutness, but this is not the case. _ It may increase the weight by promoting digestion and the assimilation of food, but systematic water-drinking sometimes reduces the superfluous fat which iB a sign of indigestion and disease. But the most important effect of water is its power of cleansing the system, by dis solving and rendering removable ac cumulations of waste matter which...

THE COWRA HOSPITAL. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 6 June 1902
THE COWRA HOSPITAL. (To the Editor.) Sir. — After giving a number of statis tics as to the Religious beliefs of the var ious patients in tho Hospital you say 'the present committee deserve the support of the whole of the re-idents of the district.' Unfortunately for the hospital there is a large porcentago of the 'residents' who thijik differently, and think so from ac tual personal knowledge of tne very shady transactions of some of tho said committee. You living at Canowindra cannot be expected to know many things connocted with the management by the committee The fact of going from home to publish the statistics whon they were rejected by n previous committee is rither omiuous. Whilst s°nrching the book for these invidious statistics you would have done well to have noted how many of those patients were admitted upon the recommendation of a certain business man.
