A DOG'S "HOMING INSTINCT. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 September 1907
A BOG'S 'HOMING' INSTINCT. The other day (writes a -lCountry Life' correspondent) a dog was sent by carriage to Brandon Station, In Norfolk, en route for London, from Buckenham Hall. At Ely it slipped Its collar as the guard took It out to give it water; the time was after dark on a winter's even Ing, and the dog dashed away and could not be found. At 6.30 on the following morning one of the stablemen at Bue kenharo heard a dog whining and howl Ing under the window. It was the same dog returned. Tbe distance from Ely to Buckenham is computed at seventeen Dllles. The dbg Is a female spaniel, and is '. is'-virtually' 'certain that Its ? local knowledge iot^he country about Bucken ham on the side towards Ely was limited to a mile from the former. This would leave It an unknown tract of sixteen miles to travel through the dark In a single night By what sense was it guided? ? .

Then she pried Open the back of the case, as if looking for something. 'Why, Mr President,' she lisped, 'It's empty. My papa has my mamma's pic ture In his watch.' Mrs M'Klnley's farfe fell on the Instant, but the President was not found wanting. 'I carry my wife's picture in my heart, Pauline,' he said quietly, and Mrs M'Kinley was all smiles again. ?

CHAPTER XXXL (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 September 1907
CHAPTER XXXL (Continued.) As to Mark Tiiistleb;,1)e watched her with a tenderness and an nsBtduit; which, knowing as I did, of all his love to myself, drew fortli towards him my profoundest reapect and my deepest ad miration. He hardly left her bedside ; lie was untiring in bis efforts to amuse her or to soothe her. I never heard him make to her any profession of lore which he could not possibly hare felt for her, but nothing in his manner was wanting of what was her due of affectionate in * terest, of tender regard, and of gentle ' pitying compassion. No husband by e jyv ? :djfing jrife'B bedside could have set. «? : ;*; . more perfect example of devotion than did Mark *Euistleby. ' ' And to me also his condnct through out was beyond all praise. He neither ignored me completely, nor noticed me orer much. Like Miss Barbara, I was a fellow-watcher by his wife's sick bed, and as such he treated me ; he made no difference between us. Once, indeed, I met him in the paB Bage on the way t...

Controlling Sex in Stock. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 September 1907
Controlling Sex in Stock, ' The question of controlling sex or tne offspring of. our herds (says a writer in the 'Mark Lane Express') is one that has many times cropped up during the lifetime of old breeders, but no efforts to do this have as yet met with any -. thing like unvaried success. The theory J*Vof every alternate beast being of one sex Is once more coming' to the front,' and to look upon it it Is only a reason able supposition that Nature would lend itself to producing an equality of the sexes, yet however successful the prac tice may have provea In some cases, there are many others in which It has been carefully tried and signally failed. We have noticed many times that some cows bring alternately a bull and a hei fer without any attention being paid to periods of service, and we have also noted many times that other cows will bring bulls for two years and then hei fers for two years, whilst yet in other instances we have known certain cows to always breed bull calves and...
Preserving Farm-yard Manure. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 September 1907
Preserving: Farm-yard Manure. Overheating of farmyard . manure is avoided by keptng the mass well com pressed. This is secured, according to a. leaflet issued by the Board of Agricul ture, London, by the treading of anlmais. as in yards, courts and boxes, or by wheeling each barrowload or cartloau over what was there before, or by load ing on soil or rotten turf. The mass should also he kept saturated with mois ture, and this is best secured by pre venting the escape -of liquids.

PRESIDENT AS HAYMAKER. URGES FELLOW WORKERS WITH A HAYFORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 September 1907
PRESIDENT . AS 'HATMAKEB. URGES FELLOW WORKERS WITH, A HAYFORK. In the opinion of the laborers with whom President Roosevelt- has been working the pace he set .was far too strenuous. In the early portion of tbe week the President, who la enjoying bis summer vacation on Sagamore Hill, put in some hard work loading bay on a farm. With the thermometer approaching ninety, and perspiration rolling down his cheeks, the President staggered under monster loads, setting an example to the men which they will never forget. Messengers' summoning him to attend to important business of State failed to die tract him from his Tascfnating task. Finally, when the rustics were dog tired, Mr Roosevelt climbed on .top of a loaded waggon and drove to the barn, where he worked with undlmlnlshed zest In stacking the hay, every now and then urging the laborers to fresh exertions by pricking them with hl» hayfork.— ?'Itoyd'a Weekly.' r .?

MOUNTAIN OF PORTOFINO. AN ITALIAN SKETCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 September 1907
MOUNTAIN OF PORTOF1NO. AN ITALIAN SKETCH. :. Vernon Lee writes in the ' West minster Gazette' :— '? v, ? ./''or people who have imagination, there is no fulfilment equalling ex pectancy or regret. Indeed, the poig nancy of the Faust-moment is due, ofter all, not only to our passionate Ringing, to our 'Abide, thou art fair !' but also, very often, to what soever of deferred craving there may lie in it. For years one of the objects of my longing had been that ' Mountain' (in Italian phrase) of Portofino. Winter after winter it used to greet my visit, a hazy violet dolphin out line, between sky and sea, when I opened my shutters on returning to that hospital Genoese villa. It sum s mod up the deFight that yearly visit was to me, like the chink of the forge over the way, the bells of the mules carrying myrtle and arbutus faggots to the baker ; ths Smell of the olive logs in my fire, which glimmered absurd and charming in the sunshine ; and also (for such things entiT into our finest unw...
