A HEROIC SAILOR. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913
A HEROIC SAILOR. For one man to do the work of twenty with' his own hands for three clays' and nights, and with forty lives .under his charge, is a feat that will take some beating. It was dono by Captain Morell, who . brought the Scindhia home by himself, although the crew usually required to work her was twenty-five, including Engineers. With .£7,000 worth« of cargo on board, she broke down in the Atlan tic, and was driven hundreds of miles'J north out of her course. An accideut spoiled the fresh water, and distilled water gave the crew dysentery, which, together with other mishaps, left the captain without an officer-oil' the bridge, or man capable of work. The first officer and five of the crew wgro washed overboard, the two chief en gineers were killed In the mishap, and the third only just managed to make the damage good before he was laid up. The captain, when the storm sub sided, actually started one of the fires himself, got one of the engines to •work at slow speed, and by...

CURE FOR GRAVEL AND STONE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913
CURE FOR GRAVEL AND STONE. When there is a sediment like brick dust in the urine it is an indication that the kidneys are not doing their work properly, and immediate steps should be taken to restore their heal* thy action. If this precaution is ne glected, the particles may gradually become larger, and the miserable suf ferin? caused by Gravel or Stone re sult. Stones are usually formed-..In-/the kidneys, and descend thenceviiito.-the bla.dder.

THE "SILLER" DID IT. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913
THE "SILLER" DID IT. "Good morning, Dugalfl," said the laird to one of his estnto workers. "1 was glad to hear Chrit your wifo had como back. It's, rather curious, though, that after vowing she would fiever live with you again she should repent so soon. Was it your soft ton gue'or your hard fisf4 That did the trick?" "No," replied Dugald, " I had jist a bit notion that naething- wad bring her back like»the glint o' • bawbees, and so I got a bit printed Jri" the pap ers that a faur-awa',r'frc,fiV had died and left me somo siller.- She was here the next day." "Very good.

Man, it works grand. The house is like a new pin, and she's as quate's a moose." - --
WATERING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913
WATERING HORSES. W'hen tlio practice is followed of waiting some time for the horse to cool down on returning from work before offering it any water, it not infrequently happens that a horse, es- [ pecially if it be-well-bred or of a deli cato constitution, gets a bad lit of shivering after drinking much water, but that contingency hardly ever oc- i curs if tho watering be done imme diately on coming into the stable. That fact alone constitutes an import ant argument in support of the latter plan, apart from any othor considera* tions, such as that a horse usually wants to drink badly as sooti as he comes iu, does not feel comfortable and contented until he has quonched his thirst, and is much refreshed, when tired, by a drink of cold water.» Tho question is often asked by inex perienced horse - owners whether horses should bo watered beforo feed ing or afterwards. If a horse has permanent access to water, as recom mended, this question, of course, loses its point, for then the anim...

I CURING A COLD, IN ADVANCE. We get sick bewiuge wo aro too lazy to keep well, according: to Dr. Woods Hutchinson. Wo nro always looking for short cuts to health. Of reputed cures for coughs and cold, he saya:— . . "Their, name is literally legion, for hardly a drug can be mentioned, hard ly a substance- discovered, which Is capable of either- being swallowed or inhaled, tlint has not been recommend ed ns a cough remedy.

THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOD CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913
THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOD CULTIVATION. Whilst judicious manuring has been I shown by the results to have a very favorable influence upon the yield, the advantage of thorough cultivation of the soil must not be overlooked. One of the first essentials to$ucces3 is a pleutiful supply of moisture, and it Is often the lack of this which leads to failures in crop production. No matter how rich the soil is, If t moisture is deficieut it falls to produce ' good yields. This is a large well-1 known maxim, yet one which unfor tunately is overlooked frequently. Manures are useful on all soils, but they only afford assistance and can not take the place of good cultivation. The soil must be thoroughly prepared in such a way that the roots will have abundant room in which to dcvolop, atid so that the necessary raoisturp can .be conserved for the use of the crop. The good effects of having the soil in proper condition to receive the seed is evidenced by the results )f many experiments.

SMALL FARMS BEST. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913
SMALL FARMS BEST. A littlo land well-farmed Is often quoted as being far more profitable than a large number of acres carried along below their maximum produc tion. The wisdom of this statoment is seen in these days of labor scarc ity and high wages. The mau who has a small'farm can, with the help of improved machinery, como nearer keeping it up to its highest stato of production and profit by his own la bor than can the man v/ith the large farm who. has to depend on himself and perhaps one or two other men as helpers. With a growing scarcity of farm labor the day on small 'farms seems inevitable as a partial solution of the problem. The soil jealously guards Its trea sures which go to produce crop growth and gives them up only to the man who expends his energy. And it is given up in exactly the samo ratio as the energy expended. Therefore, he who tills his soil'well will be rewarded well in bountiful crops, and he who tills poorly will be rewarded poorly. Fewer acres with better ti...

INDIVIDUALITY OR PEDIGREE? [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913
INDIVIDUALITY OR PEDIGREE? Tho (xueBtion ofton arises which is o£ greater importance, individuality or pedigree? The question doeB not admit of a definite answer, but neither ' one is complete without tho other, that is, tho desirablo breeding animal should possess Individual merit as well as a good pedigree. If tilie pedi gree of a certain animal contains tho nameo of a number of animals noted for the excellence of their progeny from a utility standpoint, then such a pedigree is a strong Indication of utlity iii tho animal in question, be cause as a rule "iilte begets like," though, unfortunately, there are somo degenerate offspring from the best parents, and it would indeed bo foolish to b?eed from a degenorato simply bocause of his pedigree.
MOST TERRIBLE PUNISHMENT IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913
MOST TERRIBLE PUNISHMENT IN THE WORLD. By an Eye Witness of It. I shall never forget witnessing the tarring and feathering of a man when 1 was in Texas. He was a drunkard and had the best little wife in the world. One evening, in a drunken trenzy, he burst into the kitchen, and after smashing up all the utensils, he struck the unfortunate woman a violent blow in the face, leaving her senseless and bleeding, where sho was discovered by a num ber of young fellows (of whom I was one) wiio boarded in the house. An indignation meeting followed, j in which it way decided to punish this i inhuman monitor by tarring and i feathering him. When he was caught he was still in a semi-unconscious slate of intoxication, that made it easy iq carry out our plans. Richly as the man deserved it, 1 feel sure, if we had known what wouul have been the result of the punish ment, we should have hesitated be fore*carrying out our intentions. 1 never saw such a sight as the un fortunate creature presented wh...

CHAPTER XIII. The Mystery Deepens. It was getting late whon WeBton I quitted the humble abode of Richard |Steen, but the walk back to the vicar age, long and lonely though it was, scarcoly seemed to him to occupy more than a few minutes, so absorbed was he in reflecting upon all that he had heard. He had remained with the dying man so long as he needed his ministration, but the latter had fallen after a while into a comatose state, in which he was oblivious of the past, and unconscious of his surroundings. 1-Iis wife had preserved throughout the same stolid demeanor-and had towardB tho last exhibited so marked a disin clination to speak, and bo evident a desire to be left undisturbed with her charge, that the young curate, loth as he was to leave her alone in such trouble, felt ho could not well pro long his visit.

SAVED BY A LOAF. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 23 May 1913
SAVED BY A LOAF. The following strange incident oc curred in a campaign on the Indian frontier, when the troops were in rather straitened circumstances as re gards rations. On the morning of the attack on Dargai, a soldier, seeing a".loaf of bread lying on the ground, -picked it up. Though as hard as flint, he, fearing a combined attack by his comrades for the trophy, immediate ly thrust it under his khaki coat, there to wait till a fitting opportunity could tie found to devour it. During' the desperate fighting that ensued he was attacked by a gigan tic Afridi, who, sword in hand, and buckler on his shoulder, endeavored to cut him- down. Valiantly the sol dier parried, till at last the tribes man made a fierce lunge and drove his weapon into the breast of his adver sary.
