1909 - Hawera & Normanby Star, 5 January 1909: During Christmas week three employees of the Eltham Dairy Company's factory met with painful accidents, and made the company very short-handed for such a busy time. The secretary (Mr H. J. Barnard) had the misfortune to have a heavy roller passed over his foot; one of the butter-room men was unfortunate enough to have a 561b weight dropped on to his foot, crushing it considerably; and lastly, and perhaps the most painful of all, happened to the Te Roti creamery manager, who. while in the act of firing up the boiler, by some means allowed the fly-wheel of the engine to grasp the lump of firewood he held, bringing it with terrific force against his side, breaking three or four of his ribs
