Our District Orchards. OPINIONS OF EXPERTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 March 1914
Our District Orchards. OPINIONS OF EXPERTS. On Wednesday evening the judges of the orchards presented for com- petion for the Water Commission prizes arrived at Rochester. There is a local prize for the best acre of orchard in any district, and another for the best 5 acres in all the irri- gation districts. The party con- sisted of Messrs Carmody, fruit ex- pert of the Agriculture department; Mr Davey, proprietor of the "Fruit World," and Mr Cronan, director of the Melbourne. Botanical Gar- dens. They were accompanied by Mr Harvey, of the Water Commis- sion office. They visited Cohuna on Thursday and Bamawm on Fri- day morning. In the afternoon they proceeded to Nanneella and Tongala. Though around Roches- ter is not yet an orchard district like Mildura, they express the opi- nion that eventually all the other products now grown will be super- seded by fruit, for which the pre- sent lucerne growing will admir- ably prepare the ground, and a far greater value will be obtained.

The latter couldn't conceal liis chagrin, and, meeting liis victorious opponent in the smoke-room of the hotel at which they were staying, he remarked, in a loud and spiteful tone: "Sir, is there any case too dirty for you, or any criminal so much dyed in crime that you won't defend?" "No," said the other, in a quiet tone. "What have you been doing now?'" A witty judge declared recently that "a patriot was a man who re fused to button his wife's blouse.

A Gentle Reminder. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914
A Gentle Reminder. A native o£ a small village in Scat land, having "made good" in "furrin parts," returned home, and, to show his .more unfortunate 'brethren at home how little he valued £ s. d., he presented a brand new umbrella stand to the "auld kirlt." In accordance with the usual custom the presenta tion was announced :by the 'beadle on the Sabbath, just 'before the service started. The beadle, a grizzled old warrior of about seventy, delivered himself in the following manner:— "Nae doot, brethren, ye'll a' hae no ticed the bran new umbrella stan' that oor 'Worthy nei'ber, Mr. MacRae, has gien tae the kirk. Noo umbrellas is umbrellas, and human naturs human naturs, an' although it ill-behoves me tae say onything agin ony worshipper i' this sacred place, yet tae tell ye the truth we wad a' be verry pleased if Sandy lUacQuibbar wad tak' a sittin' a wee bittle farer awa fra the door!"
Preposterous. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914
Preposterous. The christening party consisted of the proud father, the'baby—a girl— the grandfather, and the rest of the folks. The grandfather stood nearest the priest during the ceremony. "What's the cl ild's name?" asked the priest of the grandfather, at the appropriate moment. "I dunno," the grandfather replied. And he turned to the father and whis pered hoarsely, "What's its name?" "Hazel," replied. the father. "What?" asked the grandfather. "Hazel," replied the father. The grandfather threw up his hands deprecatingly. "Wliat d'ye think av that?" he ask ed the priest. "With the calendar av the saints full av gur-rl • names, an' him namin' his after a nut!"

II. Leila watched the distant land with a woman's eyes which were full of questioning. The long day on board the Chris tabel had brought with it a meas ure of reason which would now be sifted with a woman's logic.. She had fled from Newcastle in an hour of mad panic.. Her only desire had been to save the child from the ma chinations of those whom she be lieved to be her enemies. Just as when she staked all upon Desdy's liberty, when- she had defied the worst threats of the law and had entered into a conspiracy from which she must emerge a criminal, so in Ireland- had she cared nothing for any of the consequences from which might attend an immediate and a successful flight.. Despair had car vied her to the- Christabel as to the only haven the night could show her. Here to-day she reckoned with the trouble and asked herself what she had done. Surely now she was an outcast from the world! She had little money, and a month, must pass be fore the trustees would send her the miserable pit...

Gravel and Bladder Troubles. •om Mr. J. Armstrong, grocer, Car rington-road, Coogee, Sydney, N.S.W. "I had been* suffering from gravel, and after trying various remedies prescribed by the doctor and getting no relief, my sister induced me to try Warner's Safe Cure. Befoi-e I had finished the first bottleful I was greatly relieved, and by the time I had used up the second bottleful I was completely cured. I have told many of my friends of the wonder ful benefit I have derived from tak ing Warner's Safe Cure, and feel confident that anyone suffering from the same complaint will derive great benefit from taking it as prescribed." From Mr George Rose, South Mor ang, Victoria. "I suffered from inflammation of I the bladder, accompanied by pain ful urination, which made life very I miserable for me. Seeing accounts published of others who seemed to have been cured by taking Warner's Safe Cure, I decided to try what ef fect *hat medicine would have in my sase. I felt relief after taking on...
CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914
CHAPTER VI. At Aberfeldy Castle. I. They put into Stranraer Harbor a little after dusk that day. Hugh had told her by that time just what he intended to do, and she had heard iiim without protest. A rough passage, with almost a gale from the north east kept them to the saloon and to the Archdeacon's humors. The child alone revelled in the uncertainties of the day. He had Herr Joseph clown ing directly his clothes were on, and that fat worthy was a thinner and a sadder man when the lights of Ailsa Craig came to their view. George Hedges was ever a social diplomatist, and his knowledge of domestic jurispiudence intruded hap pily upon this curious situation. Of Leila he formed a tTuly clerical opin ion. There would be two sisters, he said to himself, and one of them was a little wild. It was quite possible that this toeautdful siren they had trapped at Newcastle was in some measure an adventuress and yet to be discovered. He trusted to his own presence and to the majesty of the archidi...
THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914
THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH. Under a costly, canopy i (The village blacksmith sits, Before him is a touring car, Broken to little ibits, And the owner, and the chauffeur, too, Have almost lost their wits. The village (blacksmith smiles with glee As he lights his >fat cigar; He tells his helpers what to do To straighten up the car; And the owner, and the chauffur, too, Stand humbly where they are. The children going home from school Look in at the open door; They like to see him make his fbills, And hear the owners roar; And the chauffeur weep, as they de claim They ne'er paid that ibefore. He goes each morning to the bank, And salts away his cash; A high silk hat and long frock coat Help him to cut a dash. But the owner, and the chauffeur, too, Their teeth all vainly gnash. The chestnut tree long since has died, The smith does not repine; His humble shop has grown into A building big and 'fine. And it bears "Garage" above the door On a large electric sign.

A TRUE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914
TRUE STORY. A number of years ago some miners in Wales, in exploring an old disused pit, found the body of a young man dressed in a fashion long out of date. The peculiar action o£ tlie air of the mine was such as preserved the body so perfectly that it appeared asleep rather than dead. The miners were puzzled at the cir cumstances. No one in the district had been missed within their remem brance, ainl at last it was resolved to bring in the oldest inhabitant—an old lady over eighty years old, who had lived single in the village all her life.

SAVED BY APRIL-FOOL TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914
SAVED BY APRIL-FOOL TIME. When Francis, Duke of Lorraine, and his wife were awaiting death in the prison of Nantes, they chose as the day for an attempt to escape the 1st of April. Disguised as peasants (says a chron icler), the one hearing a hod on his shoulder, the other carrying a basket of rubbish on her back, they both, at an early hour of the day, passed through the gates of the city. A wo man having a knowledge of their per sons ran to the guard to give notice to the sentry. "April fool!" cried the soldier, and his comrades to a man shouted out, "April fool!" The governor, to whom the incident was related as a great jest, became suspicious, and ordered an investiga tion; but it was loo late, for in the meantime the Duke and his wife were well on their way. The 1st of April had saved them. A London cabby entered a lending library and pushed a well-worn volume across the counter. " 'Ere," he ex claimed to the librarian, "was it you wot advised me to read this 'ere novel?'' "Yes...
WORKING UP A DAIRY HERD. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 27 March 1914
WORKING UP A DAIRY HERD, Some points brought out promin ently in answer to the question, How to won" up a herd of dairy cows to a high standard of excellence," are given, below: — > • :, , _ „ Form your herd by purchasing a choice selection of heifers from a good milking strain. Pure breds are never so good as cross-bred cattle for milk Adopt a cross which is suitable to some extent for fattening when done with the dairy or for misfits. Attend a genuine clearing sale ana ascertain if possible what the dairy returns have been, and if these aye satisfactory, use them as tlie basis in bidding for what cows are required. A cross between the shorthorn and Avrshire is the most profitable for dairying. They give a large Quantity of milk and a high test, and are suit able beasts for the butcher. If butter alone is desired, give pre ference to Jersey bulls. For milk, but ter and cheese, take the Holstein; ol special hardiness, the Ayrshire; while If one desires good milk cows, and in tend...
