THE- MEN OF THE EMDEN. What matter if you Be staunch and true I To the British blood in the veins of you, I When It's hip hurrah! for a deed well done, For u fight well fought and a race well run— What matter If you be true? Hats off to the Emden's cr*W. Theirs was the life of the storm-god's folk, Uncounted miles from the Fatherland, With a foe beneath every wisp of smoke, And a menace In every strip of strand. I Up. glasses! Paul Jones was but one of these, ! Hull, Bainbrldge, Decatur, their brothers, ; too! i (Ha those pirate nights In a ring of foes, When you douse your lights And drive hoihe your blows!) Hats off to the Emden's crew! Greet on the wave-washed decks stood they And heard with a viking's film delight The whir of the wings of death by day And the voice of death in their dreams by night!

THE ORCHARD. SPRAY INJURY. Preventible and Non-Freventible Causes.

SORGHUM POISONING. How to Avoid It. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 17 February 1915

I SORGHUM POISONING. ! How to Avoid It. The recent suggestion that farmors | who aro short of fodder should bow | sorghum, led a farmer to ask whether i tkore is any danger in feeding it to stock owing to the presonco of hydro I cyanic acid in poisonous quantities, , and whether it is safe when it is, say, | a- foot high, if allowed to wilt for I twenty-four nours first. 1 In reply, the UMef inspoctor of Agri culture stated that both Sorghum oac charatum and Karly Amber Cano can be fed to stock without an}' danger of pois* , oning when tho plant has reached the flowering stage. If .» is intended, howover, to feod it before it has reached that stage, it is necessary that the green feed should bo cut and allowed to wilt for at least twelve hours. If, as tho correspondent suggested, it was allowed to wilt for twenty-four hours, all danger of poisoning would be obviated.
