UTILISING WASTE BONES. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 25 July 1913

UTILISING WASTE BONES. The following Is among tlie best methods of iitilising' waste bones on the farm and converting them into manure, when it Is not feasible to grind them:— Bones may be decomposed and rendered more active by mixing them with about one-fourth of their weight of loam, and keeping the heap moist with stable liquid or urine. The heap should be protected from rain. By this process also there is. a loss of nitrogen, but the phosphate is rendered more readily available and proportionately increased. . This is a metohd that deserves to be made use of where bones are plentiful, and there Is no means of reducing them to powder. Thirty to forty bushels per acre is the proportion recommend ed for grass lands. An actor was one time playing in a provincial town, and observed in the front row an old lady moved to tears'. Highly flattered, lie sent an attendant to say lie would like to see her after the performance. When they met he was graciousness Itself. . "Madam," he said, "...

GRINDING THE SCYTHE. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 25 July 1913

GRINDING THE SCYTHE. v Liet ' thes boy grind the scythe instead of stolidly turning the stone while some one else prepares its edge. What it he does spoil it while learn ing? Never mind if he does have to leave the field two or three times In the forenoon, with a man to -re-grind. Will not the very need urge a more rapid learning of the requiredi les son. Arid will not the learner after wards be proud of his ability and like to practise it? When he has learned to grind a scythe he will be able to grind other things, and it will set him thinking. . We all love to do what we can do well. The boy's prowess and skill will bind his heart to his work, and where the heart Is, there will- the boy stay. Fill his mind with ideas— all it will hold—if you wish him to have a contented mind upon the farm; If a mind is full of good thoughts, discontent cannot creep in.

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 25 July 1913

LADIES' LETTES. (By "Irene.")' The new modes are going to be rather awkward to -wear, I fear; that is for the busy, brlck-movinc woman. • The new draped skirtB, tie pretty loose capo or uhawl wraps, etc., are : certalnly not conducive to easy ac- • tion. 1 could not help thinking' this 1 its I watched some ot the very latest : confections worn upon the stage. They : are not exactly the most graceful gar merits, either, except just when the wearer is standing reposefully in' a graceful attitude. When she moves,' the draped skirts are apt to drag;or to bag and not to hang in the classic, folds Intended. The modes are cer tainly bewildering in their varlety and their subtle changes. Some few things noted are worth comment.

RIDE IN A "TRANCE." ACCIDENT TO ENTERTAINER. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 25 July 1913

RIDE IN A "TRANCE." j ACCIDENT TO ENTERTAINER. A sensational accident happened on Saturday evening in the main street at Charlton (Vic), during a ride on horseback, undertaken by a girl, who was stated to be in a "hypnotic trance." The Mystic Entertainers, who have been appearing there for a short season, advertised the act as a prelude to Saturday night's enter tainment, and a large crowd was at tracted. The "subject" (Miss Ada Bell, a member of the company) was "hypnotised" by "Professor" Copeland, blindfolded, and placed on a horse, which she rode bareback. The animal dashed ofE through the town at a strong gallop, and, after going about a mile and a half, it came back. A short distance from the starting point the horse was startled by someone run ning across the road, and the rider was thrown off, sustaining a heavy fall. The young woman was carried to the surgery of Dr. P. W. Green, and an examination showed that she had sustained a slight concussion of the brain and a sprained...

Communication l was only possible by means of the : crudest signs. To an intelligent and faithful teacher is duo much of the credit of , the development .of this child's men tality. With only one sense to aid her—that of touch—one can imagine the tremendous obstacles to be over come. She began by a code of signs ' impressed upon the child's hands, and ■ after much difficulty succeeded in conveying intelligent impressions to the brain. Next she taught her to speak. The mothod of teaching her to utter words was to malco lier place the tips of her lingers upon the teach er's lips, and thus by the sense of touch con...

WHEAT. ' V The heavy winter rains and other favorable conditions, while bringing on most of our wheat crops in a very i satisfactory manner, have nad one un fortunate effect. The senior inspector has remarked that in many districts - early 'maturing; varieties of wheat are already spindling—silent, but positive testimony that they havo boon sown, much too early. Bunyip, Firbank, Florence, Steinwo del and Comeback are all good wheats, but thoy have peculfarities which suit Ihem for special treatment, and make them a possible source of loss if not properly bandied—thoy are-quick grow ing, oariy maturing varieties, and they should $5Tff5t(1ioritly not bo sown early in the sowing season. In many dis tricts they should not be sown before . tlio 1st June, and thoy can with safety bo sown even up till tliQ., middlo o£» July, but to treat them as though thoy are suitable for sowing at the middle of the planting season or earlier. Is simply to court disaster.
