6,000 Miles of Scallops to make Sea Food Cheap. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 23 January 1914

6,000 Miles of Scallops to make Sea Food Cheap. H - In .these days, when Hie cost of liv mg is so high,' no little importance attaches to tho discovery of nn en tirely new source of food ' supply almost as one. might say, at our very doors. It is just a matter of scallops. But these shellfish arc mighty good to eat-and just think, if you please, of a vast ai\d continuous bed of them 200 miles long and averaging thirty miles in width. Such beds have jjeen found not far off the At lantic coast on our side and over sea. One exploring vessel, tho Grampus, came across one bed-a molluscan deposit undreamed of while hauling a deep-sea net nlong the bottom just to sco whnt there might be to catch. A quantity of scallops was . brought to the sur faco. This excited immediate -in terest, and tho net-a kind of dredge on -runners-was lowered again and again, fetching up on each occasion from one.to three bushels of the bivalves. The bed seems to con tain ' moro scallops than over were known in t...

CROP ROTATION OF PERMANENT BENEFIT. R. C. Doneghue, Prof, of Agronomy, North Dakota Agricultural College. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 23 January 1914

CROP ROTATION OP PERMANENT " BENEFIT. R. C. Doneghue, Prof, of Agronomy, North Dakota Agricultural College. .While nil the causes of low yields I of the small grains caunot be remov ed, practically all that are of imme diate importance can be controlled in large measure by a well-planned system of crop rotation. When crops are grown in rotation and proper tillage methods are followed, they will suiter less from dry weather than when they arc grown continuously. Crop rotation is usually of more im portance than the methods of tillage used in this respect, although both are important. In most rotations more roughage is produced than can be disposed of by the work stock on the farm. Hence, more animals must be kept and more manure produced to return to the land to keep up the supply of organic matter. The organ ic matter in the soil may also bo maintained by growing grasses and legumes, (clover, lucerne, peas), in the rotation. Inasmuch as not enough manure can be produced on a farm to...

Lord Chester, formerly known ns Gerald Lovering, nnd once on inmate for thirty days of the New York Penitentiary under the name of Henry Barnes, lounged in his luxuri ous rooms in the Albany, listlessly trying to pass a rainy afternoon without the bother of goin^ *n the storm. It was weary w«r!c, for Lord Chester missed the companion ship that makes a rainy day often the most enjoyable to a man who treads. Lord Chester knew nothing of * books. Ho eared nothing' for tbun. Give him the real thing-life in all its rosy voluptuousness . the club, the drive, the gaming table, or the sweet hour with some temporary charmer. These were the elements that made Lord Chester's life a merry one ; made it worth living, in fact. "Can't stand it much longer," he said to himself, "Wonder if Brainerd is at the club ?

Farmers Should be Students. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 23 January 1914

Farmers Should be Students. It is a well known fact that noth ing stands still for any great length of time ; things cither go forward and improve, or go backwards and deteriorate. If a lawyer has ambition to become a better lawyer, he docs not diminish his study of the law, but rather in creases it. If a doctor would attain to the highest pinnaclc of his profes sion, he docs not practice medicino as it was taught and practiced 100 years ago, but he rends and studies the new ideas as advanced by known leaders and experimenters of to-day. Carpenters, printers, stone-masons, miners, merchants-all have discarded old and out cf date methods for new er and more economical ways in which to do their work. IS THE FARMER CARELESS ? Have we as formers kept up the procession ? Let us investigate. Do men who wish to become farmers, in the great majority of cases, think it necessary to go through a prescribed course of study ? They do not. Do they read up the newest and best methods of agricultu...

Customs in Regard to Bowing. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 23 January 1914

Customs in Regard to Bowing. (By Aire. FRANK LEARNED.) Olio of iho tests of.good breeding, training, «nd culture is in the mail* ner in which a bow or sululution of recognition is made. A brusque, abrupt manner is rude. A very effusive manner-1 and . a low< bow are worse. The correct' salutation is between " tho two extremes. ' Although'according to circumstan ces, a bow may be cordial; friend ly, formal, slight, deferential or familiar, it must bo made. A person who has bean introduced is entitled in T,. -» An important ruTc about bowing is that a man must wait for a lady to recognise hiin. Hetweon friends the act of bowing is almost simul taneous, but it is tho privilege of a woman to take the initiative by being the first to bow. As has been said, an introduction entitles every one to a bow. Only for very gravo reasons would anyone ever give a direct "cut," when tho claim an introduction imposes has been absolutely forfeited.

What Would Happen if the Earth Turned Faster. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 30 January 1914

What Would Happen if the Earth Turned Faster. It hns been calculated that if the earth were to rotate eighteen times as fast ns it does now a man at the equator would weigh nothing and that if ho jumped in the air he would remain there. The man weighing nothing at the equator would weigh 200 pounds at the poles, and varying weights between the poles and the equator. There arc no planets that turn eighteen times as fast as the earth,- but there are some where the force of gravity is entirely different to what it is hero. On the moon the .average man would weigh no more than fitly pounds, it has been estimated, and could jump as many feet-that is, fifty feet-without trouble. This, iiowever, would happen on any part of the moon, not because of the centrifugal force, as would be tho ease if Wo were spinning about eighteen times faster, but duo to a lack of gravitative force ou the moon. iMonsuring labour from our pro sent standards, a labourer would ; have to receive enormous prices at ...
