WORK THE SOIL NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

WORK THE SOIL NOW. All orchard soils should be kept well worked during the summer months. It is very essential that these should have an abundant supply of moisture during the whole of the growing season. The transpiration from fruit and foliage is considerable at any time but during the hot and windy weather the amount of mois ture which is required by a tree, and which is ultimately transpired from the tree, is very exceptional. Excessive transpiration is often the cause of loss of young trees and of now grafts. They are found to part with a large amount of moisture, and are not able to retain or obtain suf ficient for their nourishment; they then very soon wither and die. The ioil around these should be kept well stirred, they should also be given a good straw mulch.

PREPARING THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

PREPARING THE LAND. Much has been heard during the last year or two as to the value of explo sives for sub-soiling land intended to be planted with fruit trees and vines, and some authorities have made out, on paper, strong arguments in favor of their use. The lecturer in viticul ture and fruit culture at the Rose worthy College, South Australia, how ever, is doubtful if the work by such means can be performed as effective ly and economically as with teams and the ordinary implements used for the purpose. He considers that by adopting the usual method of sub soiling a more uniform layer of soil will be obtained to a depth ranging from 18 to 24 inches, and the cost of such work may be put down at be tween £4 and £6 per acre. On the other hand, he reckons that to secure equally satisfactory results with ex plosives the cost will work out at £ 20 an acre. In a comprehensive article in '-'The Journal of Agriculture" Mr. Laffer speaks highly of the English ditching plough, which is desig...

BOWLED OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

BOWLED OUT. About once a month this paper re ceives picture postcards and other photos from Westralians abroad, par ticularly from Egypt, showing the tra vellers on camel-back in the vicinity of the Pyramids and Sphinx. More than often we have been in clined to doubt the ibona-fides of some of those 'photos, as the senders were known to have gone straight on through the Suez Canal to Europe, not stopping at Egypt, as shown in the pictures. Then we remembered that in Port Said are studios where you can have the photo of your head put on the bodies of tourists who have really been taken close to the mighty memorials of the ancient kings of Egypt. bast week, however, one arrived that completely gave itself away. In it a well-known Westralian and his wife were seen seated on donkeys standing close to the Pyramids and Sphinx. Close examination showed the back ground of desert, Pyramids, and Sphinx to 'be faked in iby the double photo process, the picture of the tour ists and donkeys havi...

COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. Come now to the actor's everyday life. If you are a comedian you can't get any sympathy. Ever hear two men discussing the illness of a co median? Jones will say, "I hear Jack Cannot has appendicitis." "You don't say," grins Brown. And then they both burst out laughing. If an actor happens to be a tragedian it is the other way about. Every happy little episode in his life is referred to with hated 'breath. "Did you hear about H. B. Irving winning a thousand at the ponies?" Smith will say. "Dear 'me," Rolbinson will reply; and they will look as if they had been asked to have a last look at the body before the lid is screwed down — -'Fred Niblo 011 the disadvantages o£ being an ac tor, in "Theatre Magazine."

SPORT AND RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

SPORT AND RELIGION. "I do not bet," he said, "firstly, be cause if I did it would offend some members of my congregation; second- ; ly, because I do not think that it is desirable; and, thirdly, 'because I think that it would be wrong for me, with my meagre stipend, to 'bet. I simply cannot afford it. I appeal to all 'sports' not to allow their sport to drive them away from religion. If they can race and bet with a clean conscience, I do not think that God will, be offended. There is nothing wrong with clean sport any more than with stock exchange speculations, and yet many people get up and denounce I the evils of gambling and never say a word about gambling on the Stock Exchange. I am glad to be able to say that horse-racing is improving, and I believe that it will continue to improve. I have much in common with sporting men, and I am always pleased to see faces in my church which I have seen at the races. It will be a sorry day for God and for the church when the feeling that re ...

FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

FLOWERS AS EMBLEMS. iThe recent announcement in a con temporary that the Ulster imen are trying to institute a demonstration, when every man, woman and child •will wear a flower as a token of their aversion to Home Rule, reminds one ■how often flowers have been used as emblems. Since the leaders of the Yorkist and Lancastrian parties each plucked a rose in the Temple Gardens, the Lan castrian a red and the York a white, this flower has b'een a papular emblem. Apart from the fact that red roses are symbolical of love and white of purity, our national emblem is the rose; the Legitimist Party o£ France formed the League of the Rose in imitation of our Primrose League, while owing to Gladstone's fondness .for -white roses many Liberals once wished to make them an emblem for their party,--but the idea 'was not adopt ed. The primrose, it is said, was Bea consfield's favorite flower, and has ibeen chosen 'by his followers, who. formed the Primrose League, as an emblem, while in France the ...

CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. How much is expected of little chil dren in the way of politeness when none is ever shown them. Their lit tle legs carry them on many an er rand for you and never a "Thank you, dear," for encouragement, when the poor little heart longs to hear it, for it is so human in all of us to want approbation. Think of your little ones oftener, mothers. You are their all; they turn to you for their wants, and are often disappointed. Some children's souls and hearts are starv ed for want of kindness. Try what a little bribe will do instead of pun ishment; a slice of cake promised for more perseverance, or reward for ef forts to do better. A very small piece of money will make the heart of many a child joyful for a long time. Try to study their natures more. All chil dren cannot be managed alike any more than grown persons. And the present of a pet puppy or a bird— will make a good child often, when punishment fails. Love the little ones more, they have their rights, ...

The Supreme Test. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

! The Supreme Test. By A. G. Greenwood. | "I'm no Mr. Carnegie meself," con fessed Mrs. Knoyle, my landlady, apol I ogetically. i She had asked humbly if I could ! pay her only a little on account. | "An' 'ere's a pipe; p'raps you might find a job in the adver-tise-ments," she suggested. "Good-night, Mr. Smith." "You're a brick," I said—and she'd been too kind to me to let me feel shamed at my husky voice. "I'll pay | somehow—or I'll go. But I'll never I forget, Mrs. Knoyle. The thirty shil lings I owe you shall be a first charge on what I earn." Thirty shillings! The sum meas ures things up. 'The gutter was very close. For six weeks -I'd rehearsed in "The Ruby Girl" without payment— walking on in the crowd. The play had failed. In a week the notices were up. In a fortnight the company —all but the lucky "stars"—were stalking the Strand. I got nothing out of it. But I met Eva—Eva Bradley. She was in the chorus—daughter of a barrister—an orphan, brought up to idleness. In my pocket l...

HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. The man, or woman, who wants to be as good-looking as nature will per mit is given a. few practical hints in the "Family Doctor":— Don't eat your meals quickly; this causes indigestion and a red nose. Don't worry; other people's troubles are quite as bad as yours. Don't forget that a penny spent on fruit does more good than a shilling on buns or sweets. Don't walk five miles one day and stay at home all the next. Don't read till midnight; one hour's sleep before twelve is worth five afterwards. Don't shut your bedroom window; fresh air is necessary for health. Don't expect physics and tonics to keep you well if you neglect the laws of health and hygiene.

The Retort Courteous, One day a learned professor was accosted by a very dirty little boot black: "Shine your shoes, sir?" The professor was impressed by the filthiuess of the boy's face. "I don't want a ehine, my lad," said he, ''but if you'll go and wash your face I'll give you a sixr-^nce." "A'richt, sir" was the lad's reply, as he went over to a neighboring fountain and made his ablutions. Re turning, he held out his hand for the money. "Well, my lad," said the professor, "you have earned your sixpence. Here it is." "I dinna want it, auld chap," return ed the boy, with a lordly air. "Ye keep it and get yer hair cut."

Naqua, the Bushman [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 3 April 1914

P£aqua, the Bushman By Perceval Gibbon in the Pittsburgh "Sunday 'Magazine." The old yeliow-fanged dog baboon that was chained to a post in the yard had a dangerous trick of throw ing stones. He would seize a piece of rock in two hands, stand erect, and whirl around on his heels, till momentum was obtained, and then lei. go. This missile would fly like a bullet, and woe hetide anyone who stood in its way. The performance proe'iKled any kind of aim—-the stone was hurled off at any chance langent—and it was rather bad luck than by a;iv kind of malice that guid ed one of the 'boulders through the window. across the kitchen, and into a portrait of Judas de Beer, which hung on the wall not half a dozen feetTfrom the slumbering Vrouw Gro beiaar.
