BEEF GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914
BEEF GROWING. "The farmer who increases the pro ductive value of his land, either by restoring soil fertility, or by growing better grains, makes a personal sue- i cess,' and, to an extent, "becomes a public benefactor," says the- "Farm Bulletin." So said someone whose name we cannot for the moment re member. If this be true of the grain farmer, what can be said of the pro gressive stock raiser? There never was a time when there was so great a need of growing two pounds of beef where only one grew before, as there is at present. Such a marked increase may be possible only in some instan ces, but very great improvement is needed in the cattle of the majority of our grazing farms and stations. Not every cattle man is in a position to raise pure breds, but none can afford to raise scrubs. And none^ can afford not to feed up to the animal's full ca pacity. . ' - ,
TOO LATE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914
TOO LATE. , On either, side ,.of a desk in a Lou- ' don office" sat a man and woman clerk. As the man put it, they "got on well I together."

Biit he be came engaged to another, and one day, when he unexpectedly announced that, tb improve his position and get married, he was taking a fresh situ ation, the lady clerk went home early, "with a headache." The man did marry—the wrong woman. Ere long he had to sink all his sav ings in divorce proceedings, and, sad der and wiser, he thought of a scheme for happiness. In his old firm there was a vacancy;; he would apply for it, and—for now he knew her worth— would woo and marry the lady clerk. The situation he obtained. Before time on Monday morning he was back in the familiar office. Per haps she would be there early, too! « He found a smart stranger before him, a clerk who volunteered: "I ex pect we shall be a bit glumlike to day. We all attended...

A SHREWD MANDARIN. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 7 May 1914
A SHREWD MANDARIN. A Governoi' of a Chinese province was taken very ill, and refused to ad mit any visitors into his house. This j being told to a mandarin of his ac- ! quaintance,' the latter was very much concerned, and after many importun ities, obtained an interview with him. On his entrance, he was surprised to find no signs of sickness in his friend, and asked what was the matter with him. The Governor at length told him that he had lost the Emperor's seal out of the cabinet where it used to be kept, and that as the lock remained uninjured he was sensible that the seal was stolen. Of course, he could transact no (business, and must soon be deprived of his government, and probably also of his life. The, mandarin inquired if he had any . enemy in the city. The other an answered "Yes," and that that enemy was an officer of rank whom he had offended, and who was disposed to do him an injury. "Away, then," replied the mandar in; "let your valuable goods 'be se cretly removed this e...

What a Wife! "Pooh!" said a man in an omnibus, as lie and other business men were on their way to the City, "my wife is the most methodical, careful, neat wo man you ever saw. It is all non sense for a woman to. let a house run into disorderly ways. You ought to see how my wife does things." "Well, of course, that is all very well in theory," responded another; "but the best housekeeper, gets be hind." "My wife never does. She is always the same. She keeps everything in first-class order." "She must be a remarkable person," said another man. "How long have you been married?" "Ten years. And she has never dis appointed me. Why, gentlemen, she always puts everything • in the same place, and you know just where to find what you want. For instance,, I went to my handkerchief drawer this morning before daylight, and took out a handkerchief and put it in my poc ket before starting out, and I know just as well as I know my own name ' that that handkerchief is just such 1 a size, and .has m...

The incident occurred at Poughkeepsie, and .the subject was a boy, aged fourteen years, named Ste phen Klanatsky. An artery in Klanatsky's wrist was cut with a rope while at play. The first repair of the artery was not suc cessful, and accordingly Dr. John N. Bassin decided to re-open the wound and do the work over again. The boy's heart was too weak for ether, and Dr. Bassin called a little girl in from next door, and asked her to play on the piano. She said it was a "Highland Fling."

Later, the hoy said he felt little pain. Dr. Bassin said he had used music as an anaesthetic on a man less than a year ago, and that it had proved satis factory. _ •
