In one of the broad fields that met the young lady's attentive eye stood a windmill, and gathered around it were several pigs. "Well, that beats anything I ever heard of!" exclaimed the fair one. "I didn't know that you farmers were so considerate." "What does?" queried the country cousin. "That over yonder," replied-; the girl, pointing a pretty finger.

MAKING FARMING PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 10 April 1914

MAKING FARMING PAY. We are ah trying to make things pay, but we refuse to invest enough brains in the study of things so that we can make them pay. Farming everywhere, and in everything, is a deep question, one o fthe profound est. It requires a lot of thought, study and good judgment to make it pay. Some must have an Immediate profit, and so they skin the land. Oth ers try to save expense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try to save ex pense in labor, and harvest no crop; others try to save expense in secur ing good breeding stock, and so pro duc cows theat do not giv the most profitable" result. Others refuse to feed a good cow sufficiently to enable her to produce to her fullest capacity. All about us is this ever-present ques tion of making things pay, and saving useless, not useful, expense. Surely there is neded a lot of wit and wisdom on the farm.

A JOURNALIST'S WORK AND HIS TRIALS. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 10 April 1914

A JOURNALIST'S WORK AND HIS - TRIALS. By John Foster Fraser. Many aspirants for journalistic fame want to be a special correspondent. It is an ideal life. You go everywhere and see everything. You are the ac credited representative of a great newspaper, and your profession is the open sesame to witnessing all the his toric sights of your day. You may 'he sent to record the Durbar in India; or to describe a Presidential election in the United States; or to witness fight ing in the Balkans, and send thrilling despatches to your journal; or to have a good time at Cawes, writing about the regacca; or to attend huge poli tical demonstrations and provide pen. pictures of the proceedings. And everywhere things are made easy and pleasant, for the Press is a great fac tor in the land.

II. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 10 April 1914

II. Geraldine naturally knew nothing of Bob Keating or his sins, and sho made but scant reference to them at the luncheon table. Old Farmer Rath way was sure to rob the Insurance •, Companies, she said, and what did ' it matter? The villagers had enjoyed a bonfire, and there was the end of it. ' i Her manner toward Leila continued to be gracious; but while it may have deceived her brother, the object of her new civilities was not to be de ceived. Leila believed . her to be a • kindly woman at heart, but one who was obsessed by this idea of saving Hugh from what she - believed, quite conventionally, to be the penalties of . his folly. For that, Leila saw, she would sacrifice much, and the so-call- : ed canons of hospitality first of all. 1 No doubt some plan of action had oc- : curred to her and she was even then ] occupied in carrying it out. Leila felt j herself surrounded by perils so sub- j tie that her woman's intellect could ! give no battle to them. She must j leave this house...

THE PRODUCER'S POINT OF VIEW. What is Farm Management? [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 10 April 1914

THE PRODUCER'S POINT OF " VIEW. Wliat Is Farm Management? • /What :is farm management? How is it to jbe applied to farm problems as a method of work in their solution? If it is not a definite method of solving farm problems, it is not worth while to pursue its study. The term has a definite significance; it is a distinct method of attacking individual farm problems. It signifies a well-ordered business; a clearly-defined system of conducting farm operations under a particular set of conditions. There is no more important problem before the farmers in this State than that of mak ing his farming more profitable. This cannot be done without a more com plete and detailed knowledge of the business on individual farms. How does farm management help us to this knowledge? Farm manage ment in a word is the application of sound principles, good judgment and economic rules to the business of farming. In order to emphasize the importance of profit and to ensure the securing of a reasonable amou...

PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 10 April 1914

i PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICE. I Many devices ^ have. come under no tice from-time to time to cope with the mice pest in'the wheat or hay field.' Building the stack upon a raised platform does not answer the purpose; the mice will climb up the blocks up i on which the platform is built, run along "underneath the platform boards, and so enter the stack. Enclosing the stack, as some farmers do, with fine j wire netting, will also foe found un suitable, as the mice will climb up r.he wire netting; - The only successful method to keep them out is to enclose the stack with a fence o£ galvanised iron, either plain or corrugated, about two feet high. T>et the iron into the ground to a depth of ofur inches, and place it in a slant ing position, pointing outwards from the stack, all around it* taking care to leave no open space at the cor ners; it will be found impossible for mice to enter a stack thus protected;

They are bo often allowed to glected on farms is the care of imple lie aibout the place in all weathers that their periods of usefulness are Eeriously curtailed. After an imple ment fcas done its first season's wori; the owner should, when stowing ;t in its proper place, see that it is in or der, and if there are any defects he should make a note of them, or, if convenient, it is better to have such defects repaired at once. Then he knows that his machine is ready for the next season's work. With sucii implements as the stripper or har vester, where belts are used, the bslts should be removed and have a little oil rubbed on them, and ibe put away in a cool place. The seed drill is an implement that requires a lot of care. A little extra attention will often save two or three days' delay. Suco im plements as ploughs, harrows, culti vators, etc., which are of iron, do not require a shed so much, but a...

THE FLAW. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 18 April 1914

THE FLAW. Within the church a chant ascends, The flower-decked aisle divides The bridegroom's relations and friends From those that are the bride's. And he is there, a stalwart youth Of manly charm possessed, And she, a prize in very truth, In pearly satin dressed. The vows are made, the prize is his, Yes, really his, at last! But as he claims the nuptial kiss His brow is overcast. And when the joybells peal on high, When wine and speeches flow, There comes into his sparkling eye A furtive look of woe. Beside him sits his chosen bride, In his she slips her hand, But though she smiles4 on him in pride She does not understand. His hidden anguish, though acute, Must all alone be borne— The toecap of his patent boot Is pressing on a corn. —Jessie Pope.

SECRETS OF A COMPLEXION SPECIALIST. :o: A SIMPLE PRESCRIPTION BY WHICH A SPECIALIST QUICKLY RESTORED HUNDREDS OF RUINED COMPLEXIONS. At a recent conference of specialists an interesting discussion took place in re gard to the ways and means for beautify ing and removing bad complexions, and the experts in this line all agreed to the great value of what is known among specialists as Floxoin Lotion. A well-' known skin and complexion specialist present gave some wonderful instances of cases where his patients had restored their disfigured complexions in an ex ceedingly, short time by applying this lotion, which consists of two ounces of rose water, one dram of Tincture of Benzoin, and two ounces Flowers of Oxzoin, and can be prepared by any chemist, many of whom keep it put up ready for use under the name of Floxoin Lotion. He advised the application of the lotion night and morning with a soft cloth or sponge, and said that he had never known it to fail in remarkably im proving the co...

THE LOST LAKE OF GOLD. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 18 April 1914

THE LOST LAKE OF GOLD. Somewhere in- north-western Ari zona—the precise "whereabouts is now a matter of conjecture—is a lake of gold. formed by Nature. On Decem ber 13, 1S58, a party of gold-seekers, twenty-two men in all, were prospect ing in north-western Arizona when they came upon a band of nomad Apaches, who had with them consid erable gold, in the shape of nuggets and dust. After many pressing ques tions as to where they had obtained it, a half-bred Mexican volunteered to guide the white men to the spot for a consideration. He led them three hundred miles over a wild and desert country, to a spot near the head waters of the Gila river, where there were three mountain peaks in the form of a triangle. Here was a dried-up lake, the ancient bed a jumble of nuggets and gold-dust. The prospectors shov elled £40,000 worth into sacks, and twelve of them set out with it to Fort Yuma. They never reached Yuma, however, for they were am bushed and killed by Apaches in a defile since known...
