Farmyard Manors. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 27 November 1907

Farmyard Manure. -.'??'. - During the recent International Agri L~,.., .cultural Congress in Europe, Professor Hf Stoklosa read en interesting paper on «s farmyard manure. He gave a brief fe sketch of the views' hitherto held, and f reported the results of a large; number ? ? of experiments made with the special object ascertaining the Important part played by bacteria in farmyard manure. Be considered that the application of « tons or manure, caicuiacea as ary suo stanee was equivalent to Inoculating the soil with about half a ton of bacteria. According to his investigation the res ' plratlon of bacteria was greatly Increas ed by the farmyard manure, and as a consequence, the temperature of the soil raised correspondingly. Experiments have also clearly demon strated that the conversion of Insoluble with soluble or available phosphoric odd proceeds with much greater energy in a soli dressed with farmyard manure. 'But if the manure has been first Bterll ? Iced this action does not ta...

THE HAMPTON COURT VINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 27 November 1907

THE HAMPTOH COTTBT VISE. The Vine at Hampton Court Palace, which is some 140 years old, writes the English 'Journal of Horticulture,' un der date 12th September, Is. this year bearing only about 2S0 bunches of grapes, a much smaller' yield than in past years. The , vine, however, ia not showing' any *lgns p£ decay; U Jb, In fact, more vigor-: Miiiiit ;-*W^v^-greaten''^^o^tthe.''\4he' this year has fewer then 500 bunches depending from its branches, this does not mean that the plant is less Btrong As a matter of tact, the vine-Is strong enough to yield four times the quantity, but those who look after It deem It wise to thin out the bunches extensively. Thus its strength Is not taxed unduly. Up wards of 2000 bunches -were cut away from the vine this year when they were young. The result has been that the yield both in size and quality of the bunches remaining has been superior to that of several years part. '

LIBRARY READERS IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 27 November 1907

LIBRARY READERS IN LONDON. A curious fnet merges from some In quiries Hint have been made touching public library readers In London. It Is ihat people of between twenty and ! thirty btp the great readers; that after I tbe age of thirty men and women read much Ie3s. and that after forty they up- ' pear to read scarcely anything. This. | the 'BooU Monthly' points out, would ' seem- a very odd state of affairs If it ! were not confined to those who borrow { books frnni public libraries. It clearly i means that very many of these readers ] read for practical Instruction, for the i help In tbe various trays of making a I living which they get from books. 'If you were to take people (writes the 'Westminster Gazette') who are mem bers of private libraries, and, much more, people who are in the habit of buying books, you would find almost to a certainty that the reading habit grows with age. .

BRITAIN'S RAILWAYS. WHO OWNS THEM ? SHAREHOLDERS AND INVESTORS. The British railways, 'unlike those of Belgium and some other coun tries, were built not by the Stats, but by the enterprise of individuals, who formed joint-stock companies, and thus provided the money. The real owners are thus the individual ; shareholders who invested their sav ings in those companies. And these individuals are exceed- ! lngly numerous. All classes and all WUUIUUIU WO (VpiCDCUWM MUUU5 them; it is a popular myth which has no foundation in fact to repre sent the great mass of the share holders as ' very rich' or even as ' rich' persons. i The latest available statistics in the Statistical Abstract are for 1906, and show that at that date the total capital of the railway com- ' panies was LI. 282,000,000, or not far from twice the National Debt. Of this amount 144,000,000 repre sented what is technically known as ' water,' or capital which is only nominal, and which has been .created by splitting shares...

"WILD DARELL." TRAGEDY RECALLED BY A WILL STORY OF A MURDERED INFANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 27 November 1907

'WILD DARELL.' TRAGEDY RECALLED BT A WILL. STORY OF A MURDERED INFANT. The brief announcement among the wills published in yesterday's 'Daily Mall' that the late' Mr Francis William Leybourne-Poyham. of LIttlecote, Wilt shire, had left estate valued at L100.000. recalls a tragic story of the days of the Tudors. LIttlecote is a sixteenth-century man sion—almost unaltered from the time It was- built— standing amid a well-wooded park In the valley of the River Kenne't. It was the home of the Darells. and was sold or given by the last of that family during the reign of Queen Elizabeth to Mr Justice Popham, progenitor of the late Mr F. W. Leybourne-Popham. The story is partly told In a' note to Sir Walter Scott's 'Refceby,' -and also by Macaulay. A midwife was brought - out of Berkshire in the dead of night to attend a woman who was about to give birth to a child. She was promised high pay, and the condition was made that she should be blindfolded. She rode on horseback behind the messen...

THE PASSIONIST ORDER IN HIGHGATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 27 November 1907

THE PABSIONIST ORDER XV HIGHGATE. ?? The Passtonlst community, r-blch the other day opened new school-buildings on Higbgate Hill, has now' (writes the 'Westminster Gasette') been estab lished at St. Joseph's Retreat for almost half a century.' Its rule prescribes that the houses of the Order shall be outside the town, and yet hear enough for members to be, of sen-Ice In the town, nnd Highgate satisfies these conditions admirably. The Retreat, to which the Passionlsts came in rats, stood ion a site formerly occupied by the Black Dog Inn. The first Superior of the monas tery was a convert, the Rer. George Spencer, brother of Lord Althorp, who renounced the fairest prospects Jn. the. Church of England to enter the Order of 'Father lguatlus.' Twelve -years after the death of 'Father Ignatius'': ' the present buildings were erected, the opening ceremony being performed by Cardinal Manning.

Such exclamations as 'Wonder- ful!' 'This is far finer than I ex pected,' were heard on all sides. It is hardly realised, nevertheless, what an advance these vessels are on any that have hitherto been bunt. In dimensions- they are mere than ono seventh of a mile in length, or about 140 feet longer nnd twenty feet broader than ' the Great Eastern. In displacement tonnage they are about two-and-a-half times as great as the Dreadnought. In height and spaciou...
