THE KHEDIVE AND THE AMERICAN SALESMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914

THE KHEDIVE AND THE AMERICAN SALESMAN. An amusing reminiscence of the present Khedive of Egypt is told by Mr. E. Alexander Powell, late consular representative of the United States at Alexandria, in his book, "The Last Frontier." Mr. Powell says he re ceived a call from the chairman of an American firm whose special line of business was the manufacture of agricultural and well-drilling machin ery. Mr. Powell's visitor explained that as he was passing through Egypt he thought it might be possible to ob tain an audience with the Khedive:— Agriculture and its attendant prob lems of irrigation and fertilisation constitute the sole hobby and amuse ment of the present Khediv». Abbas Hilmi. He is consequently a ready and liberal purchaser of all improved types of agricultural machinery, which he puts to practical use on his great estates. The request of my compatriot was duly transmitted to the grand master of ceremonies, and shortly thereafter a reply reached me that named the day and hou...

IN FANNY BURNEY'S GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914

IN FANNY BURNEY'S GARDEN. An amusing account of the horti cultural pursuits—and ineptitude—o£ General d'Arblay, the French emigre who became Fanny Burney's hus band, is given in an article in the "Cornhill" by Sir Henry Lucy: — The young couple began their mar ried life in apartments in a farm house oa the summit of Bagdcn Hill. Thence they moved to a somewhat larger cottage at Bookham. Finally, when "Camilla" proved a financial success, they built themselves a houso on the outskirts of Norbury Park, known during their residence as "Camilla Cottage." From the first, M. d'Arblay, con scious of inadequacy to bear his lair share in the wherewithal for meeting the cost of the little household, de veloped a fearsome frenzy for gar dening. Pursuit of the vocation iu volved him in delightfully ludicrous dilemmas. Writing under date April, 1794, from the cottage at Bookham, the young wife says:— "Think of 'our horticultural shock last week when Mrs. Bailey, our land lady, entreated him not ...

THE MAN IN THE MOON. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914

THE MAN IN THE MOON. By A.L.S. Is it possible that the Man in tbf Moon has descended from the posi tion of a fully-credited reality to that of a mere figure of speech; but even as such he is of great use to us, es pecially when we wish to assert our ignorance of anything. When we state that we know no more than the Man in the Moon we are attributing the densest ignorance to that some what mythical personage; we at least credit him with being an agnostic of the purest water. He could scarcely be even that if he did not exist at all. By our common language we are perpetuating a remarkable article 01 old lolK-lore. Science and the tele scope give us their own interpretation of me features tnat we discern on tue moon'B suriace, but in popular beiiel there was once really a inun tliere, whatever may now have become 01 him. He was bamsiied thiLner for me crime of gathering a licks on Sun day. If we refer to the Book of Num bers we hud that a man wno gathered bucks on the sabbath was tau.e...

FOR THE FARMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914

FOB THE FABMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. B. Harrison, Burringbar, Tweed • River, inquires as to the proper meth od ol making a good and cheap com post heap, for manuring purposes. The compost heap is a most valu able adjunct to a farm or orchard. The principle of this method of mak ing manure is the fermentation of easily-decomposed vegetable material in the presence of earth and lime. It is not only substances like peat, litter, straw, which form the usual basis of compost heaps that are thus decom posoble, 'but almost every kind of or ganic substance, both of vegetable and animal origin, can be thus composted. Dead leaves, bush scrapings, sawdust, weeds, tops and stalks of vegetables, as well as bone and animal refuse, the operation is much slower, and sub stances like bones should be first crushed. It is also important to be sure that animal refuso so treated is not derived from a diseased source. As a general method of procedure, the following will be found satisfac tory:—Make a heap, ...

TO APPEAR AND FEEL YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914

TO APPEAR AND FEEL YOUNG. [ A woman o£ uncertain years, who looked much younger than she was, took the following rules as her guide in maintaining a youthful appear ance:— Dress younger than you are. Never dress older. Never wear old ladies' clothes, no matter liow old you get to be. Forget caps and wraps and shawls and easy chair gowns. Keep your figure young. You can not hope to look young if your fluuro is old. When you look in the looking-glass gaze at yourself from the back, not from the front. If you look old, that is the point of view from which to re alise the fact. Beware of what Kate Field called the middle-aged figure. It is round in the shoulders aud hunched up in i.he belt line. There is a certain roly poly look about the woman who is older than she ought to be. Take care of your hair. Straggly hair goes with old age. Old people forget to shampoo, and they give up waving their locks. Don't let your hands get bony. Bony fingers belong to the aged. Keep the knuckles plump...

ARRANGING THE HOME GROUNDS [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 January 1914

ARRANGING THE HOME GROUNDS j Before building a house most per- jf sons recognise the necessity of hav ing aeflniie plan of i le structure. Comparatively tew ppi. ;'e. however, realise the desirability of planning the home grounds. And yet the latter may have quite as much to do with making a home as the former. In a short article it is impossible to give more than a few general princi ples. These, if considered in their proper relations to the situation ot the building and the character of the sur roundings, may lead to pleasing re sults. The location ^f walks and drives should be mai'.ti a mat er of convenience. Neither the wai;cs nor the drives are ornamental in t.bem selves; hence they should not be more numerous than the uses ot the uai'y life call for. Curved wa'its and drives are often more pleasing than straight ones, especially wher^ 'lie grounds are large. The curves, howuver, should be easy and natural, not short and kinky.
