A Destructive Storm. EXTENSIVE DA MAG !•]. The closing days of 1913 were marked by unpleasant weather conditions. With the mercury bubbling up to 100 degrees people were not exactly happy, but while the heat was clear there wore few complaints. On Tuesday of last I week, however, the wind blew I with scorching heat and unusual j violence, raising a continuous haze of dust, which, swept along at a terrific rate, penetrated everywhere. Towards evening the scarcely tolerable conditions were cleared, hut a lot of un pleasant things happened before people wero enabled to breathe freely the cooler atmosphere.

Austhaliax electors are not as yot disposed to confer Parliamentary honors on women.

Cleaning Fabrics. USE OF MAGNESIA. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 8 January 1914

Cleanlnsr Fabrics. USE OF MAGNESIA. Fine lace that cannot be or ought not to lie washed may be cleaned by rubbing a quantity of magnesia on it, then laying it away for a while in blue tissue paper. If it is much soiled, keep it in the paper for a week or more. Then shake out the magnesia, and the lace will be soft and clean and none of its beauty marred. After each wearing of white silk gloves rub them with a block of magnesia, and they will not need washing for a long time. White canvas shoes can be kept clean in the same way. Whenever the shoes are worn wipe them off with a clean cloth, then apply the magnesia before putting them away. The next time they ore to bo worn dust off the magnesia, and they will be .fresh and clean. Little white crochet collar pins can be kept clean the same way. The soiled collar of an unwash able silk waist may be freshened by applying magnesia overnight, and the longer it remains oh it the better the result. After a trial, the practice of usine maenes...

Several weeks ago Mr. Mead was offered the Professorship of Rural Industries in the University of California, and it was* an nounced that he proposed to ac cept the position, as it was one that was in many respects agree able to him. The Government, with the sanction of Parliament expressed indirectly, asked Mr. Mead to reconsider tho matter, and he took till the first week of December to do so.

Large Silos Condemned. MODERATE SIZE BEST. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 8 January 1914

Large Silos Condemned. J . MODERATE SIZE BEST. American dairymen are of opinion that large silos are not the best. They base their con clusions on the fact that the owners of the big silos do not have cattle enough to get down ev^ry day to the sweet silage that is below the surface, which has ; had extra fermentation owing to exposure to air. As a result they are forced to feed partly decayed silage. A writer in "Hoard's Dairyman" says that with the ordinary silage, 16ft. to 20ft. in diameter, ono needs a feeding consumption of at least. 3in. or 4in. a day. This can hardly be had without a herd of at least 50 cows. lie advocates either a larger herd or smaller silo, other wise the cow does not get .the amount of good silago that she should have. The Iowa farmers are finding it more economical in the long run 10 have more silos, and small ones. If they are to be filled with the blower, adjustments are easier and more quickly made. If filled with carrier, the silos should / in jjlaood...

Composition of Wheat. SEASONAL INFLUENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 8 January 1914

Composition of "Wheat. SEASONAL INFLUENCES. In an article on " 1'he Milling ;and Baking Qualities of Victorian Wheats,*' published in the De cember issue of the " Journal of •Agriculture," Mr A. E. ■ S-icliardson, M.A., Agricultural Superintendent, discusses the question of the composition of wheat as affected by environment. Composition of wheat raised on any given spot, he says, depends on three main factors — (1) the nature of the season, (2) the na ture of the soil on which the seed is grown, and (3) the variety of wheat grown. There have al ways been considerable differ ences of opinion as to how far the Quality of the wheat is de termined by its environment— that is, soil and climatic con ditions, and how far it may be regarded as characteristic of the variety. The problem is ono of con siderable importance both to the wheat breeder and to the miller. A knowledge of the respective parts played by heredity and by environment in. the nxevi1££ Aj fi tima'te objective is the combi...

Scott's Epitaph and its Origin. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 8 January 1914

Scott's Epitaph and its Origin. Perlutps tho most interesting feature of the January "'Life," which is just to hand, is a photo graph and an explanation of tho origin of the epitaph which was written for the memorable cross to Captain Scott and his fellow heroes. It seems that when Cap tain Scott was leaving for the Smith Pole Dr. Alexander L?ep?r, Warden of Trinity Colleg'i.-, JViei bourne, gave him as a memento a little volume of Browning, in which he wrote the concluding linos from Tennyson's Ulysses: "To strive, to seek, to find, but not to yield." The little volume was discovered in the tent with Captain Scott, and the members of the search party, considering tho lines a most appropriate epitaph, carved them on the cross which stands on Observation Hill. Other interesting articles in this excellent number are: " The Greatest Business on Earth," in which Frederick Palmer, the war correspondent, tells how science has robbed war of its romance; Mr. Carlyle Smythe's description of ...

Immigrant's Lament. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 8 January 1914

Immigrant's Lament,. .1 lidding by the statement made by Mr, 1<\ Hagolthorn, Minister for Immigration, the story of hardship and inability to obtain work told by a young immigrant lias no foundation in fact—except in such fact as the young man himself should have known how to control. On the last occasion when a similar incident occurred —for the vague and wandering immigrant who seems to embark by accident and land without de instructed the police to be ex tremely careful in accepting and giving immediate publicity to alleged facts in such cases. Ap parently verv little notice has been taken of the instructions, and what looks very much like lii(i narrative of a bogus case has gained an undesirable circulation.' In this instance what appears to have happened is that a young immigrant wandered along to the police station at about midnight and told a pathetic story, which, before any investigation could have been made, finds its way next morning to the press. It now looks ...
