Workhouse Children.

They came from various work-houses in England and Scotland. They attend the ordinary Stato school till they arc fourteen, but in their home they get nil insight into farm life. They harness teams and leurn to manuge them, driving in to tho post ...

Porter's Coats as Afghan Uniforms. 1 The Amir of Afghanistan is ex ceedingly anxious to Westernise his country, but it is rumoured that somo of his' subjects are not taking kindly to the reforms. The latest step which tho Amir has taken is to insist on the ladies of his Court wearing European clothes. Recently dozens . of elaborately-de signed costumes were ordered from Paris. Early this year, says a Bombay correspondent, a ropresentativo of a Bombay tailor visited Kabul at the invitation of the Amir, and high-class? clothes to the value of £0,000 were sold to. tho ladies and gentlemen of the Court. The ladies were not permitted to be seen per sonally or to bo measured for their garments, but their measurements! were sent out to the tailor. The ladies selected their dresses from pictures of tho latest Parisian fashions, and after the costumes had been supplied his Majesty gave a garden-party at which the dresses were displayed. Many amusing features about this craze for European dre...

How Kipling was Inter viewed in America. .i Chicago, considerably more than twenty years ago, I obtained a chance interview from Jludyard Kipling. At that time Kipling, who was just beginning to achieve famo through his "I'lain Tales fiom the Hills" and "Soldiers Threo," had little use for this ... country. For one thing, he had tr.iod to make a living with his pen in San Francisco, and had failed. j Kipling was in a decidedly crab . bed humour when he reached Chi enBO on this occasion, and not with out. roason. lie was on his way I , from Australia to England.

PLMTS OF PREY. f i *The pitcher plant or nepenthes of tropical countries is undoubtedly tho best-known of those which consumc insccts.

In both eases Insects are attracted by the fluid, which they coirie- to drink, and creep into the pitchtr after it. These "pitchers" are really natural traps.

WHY LEAFY POTATO PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 10 July 1914
WHY LEAFY POTATO PLANTS: The most nutritive part of the po tato, tho part that? gives to the po tato its excellent flavour, is the parV; that contains the greatest number of Btarch cells. If anyone will cut a Po tato through the middle he will no- : tice that the potato substance is not homogeneous.' Around the outside of the potato, just beneath the skin, is a layjer, separated from the inner lajCr by a vascular semi-flbrouB par tition that is visible on close exami nation. This outer layer is called the corticel, and contains most of the starch of the potato. The best pota | toes have this corticel layer-thick I instead of thin-that is, have more starch than the others. | The principal chemical element of starch is carbon. The potato plant gets all of its carbon from the air through the leaves, none of it from the soil. Tho leaves have the power to dissociate the carbon from the carbon dioxide in the air, and store much of this carbon in the tuber. The larger the leaf capacity .an...

THE DAIRY JL GENUINE GET-RIOH-QUIOK PROPOSITION. j Superintendent Malcolm H. Gard (ner, of the Holstein-Friesian Advan | ccd Registry of America, lias a fac I ulty of saying things in a striking and unique way. Here is what be has to say regarding the disposition of pure-bred sires and the value of cow-testing associations : Not one pure blood bull out of ten that is born is needed for use in purebred herds. Sale for the other nine must be found for grading up, or they must be either vealed or raised as beef steers. Breeders of Hoi steins are vitally interested, in arous ing the interest of farmer-dairymen in the betterment of their herds, and there is no present better way to ac complish this than by the organisa tion of testing associations. Under this plan an association is formed containing enough hcrdB. to give steady employment to a competent man T?ho remains one day at cach place, the cows owned by the mem bers of the association being asses sed pro rata to pay the wages of t...

THE FARM. MOIST FACTS for DRY FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 10 July 1914
THE FARM. MOIST FACTS for DRY FARMERS. Mr. Geo. L. Sutton, Agricultural Commissioner for the Wheat B*«lt, Western Australia, has issued the following| Moisture can be stored in the soil. To store moisture the soil must he able to absorb the rain that falls. Loose soil will absorb 40 per cent, of its weight in water. Compact soil will absorb only 20 per cent. Cultivation or tillage loosens the soil. Cultivation or tillage some time previous to tho sowing season ts known as fallowing. FALLOWING STORES MOISTURE. Tho longer the, period between the initial operation of fallowing and that of planting, the grea.ter will be the quantity of moisture stored. In dry districts fallowing should commence early. The moisture stored by fallowing is wasted by weeds. . n Weeds can be destroyed by surface cultivation. The moisture stored i? easily lost by evaporation. J Much of this can be prevented bj mulching, or covering the moist soil .with straw, litter, or loosa dry soil. The only practical mulc...

CHAPTER V. HOW THE BULL UPSET JOSH HETHERINCJTON'S PLANS. It was a beautiful May morning the first of the month, hut every thing was unusually forward for the time of the year-the trees in Wynth shay Park were beginning to burst into leaf. Twenty years had elapsed since Joshua Hethcrington wooed Sabina Ossington. The trees that had been saplings then were now full grown ; the old house had changed little, save that the ivy which then covered it had grown thicker ; the garden look ed much the same as it had done when the stranger from over the ' seas took possession. But there was , a change in the master of the house | as he stood looking out of the win- | dow, as lie had done so long ago, j over the gardens and the park. | Twenty years ago Josh had black , hair ; now it was iron-grey. His fea- ! tures had become more hawk-like ; his face, which had never worn a par- , ticularly pleasant expression, was : now harsh and forbidding ; moreover, there was a crafty expression in his eyes...
Weather Made to Order. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 10 July 1914
Weather Made to Order. Is it possible to mako weather to order ? In the opinion of that emi nent scientist, Sir Oliver Lodge, it is by no means beyond tho powers of man, and he advances the sug gestion that exploration of the up per regions, would result in dis coveries which would enable us to coutrol the weather. The latter, he contends, is merely a matter of electrical conditions, and. tho ingredients- necessary for 'fine weather are an upper atmosphere charged with positive electricity and a negative charge upon tho earth's surfaco. Much, he says, could be dono by placing a copper rod round tho earth parallel to tho Equator and discharging millions.of amperes (units) from this rod. Sir Oliver Lodgo points out that wo have spent millions on building rail ways, and why not invest enpitnl in controlling tho weather by this means ? . Meantime, while wc are thinking about the copper rod, much might ho dono "by electricians. Sir Oliver Lodge suggrsts that they should as cend a high mo...

RECIPE FOR SKIM-MILK CHEESE The. Bkim-milk must be left until It is quite thick, then well strained, which can be done by Hanging it up in a clean linen bag. When drained dry add salt to taste, and nib the curds well to make them appear mealy. Stand in a warm place near a stove for a few days till they get gluey. Then put into a saucepan, and fry with fresh . butter till all is well melted. Run into a basin, and leave to get cool. It is then ready for us6. This recipto i3 used by many farmers' wives in Western Australia, and is well recommended. An important experimental trial was made on the L.N.W. Railway be tween Foleshill and Nuneaton with a petrol-driven rail car. The test was a complete success, and foreshadows a revolution in railway locomotion. Tho car is 60 feet in length and is of full railway carriage gauge. It runs smoothly on two sets of bogie wheels, and can be pulled up very promptly. * 1985.

Among the troops on board (drafts sent out to the Kaffir War, then raging), who gave a still unfor gotten example of calm discipline and unflinching courage under such terrible circumstances, wero some of the Twelfth Lancers under Captain Bond-Sheldon, a veteran who still survives. Ordered to get the horses over board, the captain succeeded in do ing so, his own charger among tho rest. Some swam landwards, some out to sea ; but most doubt less became tho prey of the sharks, which, hovering around the doomed vessel, added a new terror to tho situation. Then an effort was made to get out the boats, filled with women a...
