Grown-Up Children. A railway guard related an amusing littlo iucident tho other day. I "At an out-of-the-way little station i 111 the North," lie said, "a party o£ working men wished to boo]; to a town in tho Midlands. Unfortunately, i the booking elerk had only a limited number of tickets for that journey at his dib-poBal. "Eventually he got out of his dSfli culty 1>y dividing the pieces of paste board and issuing children's tickets to tho party, at the same tlmo explaining to mo how matters stood. " 'Tihey'vo paid the full fare, of course,' he remarked, 'so you must see 'em through.' "I had almost forgotten the matter, when a ticket-examiner at B camo to me and remarked, with a sorrowful shake of tho head: " 'This under-age dodge is getting too warm!' " 'What's the matter?' I asked. " 'Matter?' ho echoed, disgustedly. 'Why, here's a whole carriage full o' children wot plays cards, drinks -whlB ky, and wears whiskers!'"

SELECTING THE MILK COW. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914

SELECTING THE MILK COW. Nearly every good mlllc cow pos sesses certain points of conformation which indicate her milking qualities. The first important point is that she shall show a lean or bony form, with a sharp prominent backbone, ribs wide apart, sharp withers and incurv ing thighs. This indicates ."dairy temperament," or, in other words, that Bhe will turn her feed into milk instead of beef. Next she will have a long, deep bar rel, well sprung ribs, broad muzzle, and a strong jaw, these points indicat ing capacity for consuming larger amounts of* feed. Third, she will show a hardy con stitution. which is indicated by a large heart girth, a deep chest, large open nostrils, and a large wind pipe and lung capacity. Fourth, a good dairy cow should have an udder of good size running well forward and hung up well be* hind. The region of the pelvis or the hips is wide, as is also the space be tween the thighs as viewed from be hind, giving ample room for a large udder. A large udder ...

NEWSPAPER KINGS. Men Who Fashion History. Struggle for Supremacy. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914

NEWSPAPER KINGS. Men Who Fashion History. Struggle for Supremacy. Alfred Harmoworth (now Lord Northcliffc), who first devised per sonal journalism In tabloid form through the medium of "Answers," is, after 20 years, tho most influential private public man in the three King doms. Some people are apt to bolt with the idea that success commands success, and that once a man has arrived ho can sit down serenely and tortuue comes to him cap in hand. I happen to know that there is no harder worked man In England than Lord Northcliffc. Like the aged Em peror of Austria, he is dressed at 5 a.m., and ready to digest every paper that is printed in London and the provinces. Before a majority of his assistants in tho many ofllces which he commands have had their break fast he calls them up on the telephone to discuss with them what shall be the best story for the following day. "He is a hard taskmaster, but the most stimulating man I know," one of his young lions told me recently. Never a day pa...

THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 3 April 1914

THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. Farmer's wives and daughters often wonder why their homes do not look as attractive as those of their sisters in town. They say they work twice as hard, and do not havo half the chance to have a good time. One very simple thing adds much to the attrac tiveness of the farm home, and that is the presence of flowers. There is no one who can better af* ford to have pretty flowers than the farmer's wife, for she has plenty of land and fertiliser. There are so many pretty hardy plants and* shrubs that require little work and that when once started will bloom every season for a long time. There are also many annual varieties that will furnish cut Mowers for the interior of the house, such as sweet peas, nasturtian, pinks, phlox and asters—my favorites. It is a pleasure to give away flowers to the sick, to carry them to the altur of the little church, and, in fact, it seems as if they are never out of place. There is on class of people who can have as good a time w...
