WIT AND HUMOR. Deceived. Little Willie was left alone with sister's beau. "-Mr. Cliumpley," he began presently, "what is a popinjay?" Sister's beau wrinkled his forehead. "Wh-why, a popinjay is a-a vain bird." "Are you a bird, Mr. Chumpley?" "Certainly not." "That's funny. Ma said you was a popinjay, and pa said there was 110 doubt about your being a jay, an' sis ter said there was small hopes of your poppjn', an' now you say you ain't a bird at all. That's funny." A certain distinguished professor was constantly making curious ex periments. One evening when a few friends called at his laboratory they found him bonding anxiously over a spirit lump on which was a small pan. "Well," said one, "what is it to night?" "Guess," murmured the professor. "Micrococci?" asked one. "No." 'Tneumococci?" asked the other. "No." "Spirochaetae?" "No." The visitors ran over the' scale of micro organism as far as they knew it. Then one of them said, "Well, wo give it up. What is it?" The professor smi...

FOR THE FARMER. BETTER FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 July 1914
FOR THE FARMER. BETTER FARMING. More and more careful systematic methods of farming are rapidly gain ing ground in this country. The in creased price of land makes such es sential to success, and 110 known sys tem will put farming on a better basis than following Nature's method of keeping up the fertility of the lanr: and in a great measure this is what green manuring is. Dame Nature had no plough to turn under the fall ing leaves of the bush hills, but she left time to do the work, and it is the accumulated humus so formed from which our bush farmers are reaping their returns to-day. On much of our land fertilisers will bo required to produce a good crop for ploughing in, for it is poor econ omy to plough in a poor one. Money so spent will be returned a hundred fold, and the permanent fertility of the land built up. On heavy land the ploughing in o£ such crops as; peas, vetches, clover, etc., is particularly valuable, for doing so often converts an unkindly dillicult-to-work land ...

MANURING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 July 1914
MANURING POTATOES. Potatoes, like all other crops, re quire a complete manure, viz., a ma nure containing nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash, lime also if the soil is deficient in this necessary consti tuent. Nitrogen may be used in var ious forms—blood and bone, sulphate of ammonia, or nitrate of soda. If the first is used, it is better to apply it at the time of planting, as it is much slower in its action than either of the others; the sulphate of am monia is sometimes applied at plant ing time also, but it is .better applied afterwards as a top dressing when the plants are two or three inches high. With regard to nitrate of soda, this is so extremely soluble that it should only be applied when the crop is near ly ready for earthing up. Phosphates may be used in various forms, super.. Lonedtist, or slag, according to the nature .of the soil or the particular fancy of the user. In any case, a lib eral dressing is necessary. Potash is best applied in the form of sulphate of potas...

IS CLIPPING SAFE? [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 July 1914
IS CLIPPING SAFE? It is not uncommon among dairy cowa to find the udder covered with a dense growth of long hairs, which, although they may'he of some protec tion to the udder, nevertheless, from lUii .'standpoint of sanitation and cou? fort to tlio cow \.ririff mllklnp, are (a detriment. Under ordinary farm con ditions they are generally covered with filth, and even in the best-kept dairies, unless clipped, collect some dust and filth. Furthermore, because of their location, it is highly probable that some of them will find their way into the milk pail during milking. In order that such condtions may not oc cur, these hairs should be clipped close once or twice each year, there by preventing collection of filth and permitting greater ease in washing the udder.
CHAPTER XX. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 July 1914
CHAPTER XX. On August 2 Peter Bellairs saw his I wife off to Melbourne. He had got her. an excellent berth, her maid ac companied her, and she was surround ed by every comfort. She had plenty of money and a good outfit, and she was going to see the person whom she loved best in the wide world. Yes, of late she felt that she loved Ralph 'better even than her husband, ' for Bellairs, though kind, was cold and had ceased to show her those little at tentions and to utter those words o£ affection which used to fill lier heart. Evqn at the moment of parting he re mained'a distinguished and somewhat hard figure, but his wife, a woman of small brains, had made up her mind that he had never discovered the theft of the diamonds, or he would assur edly have spoken to her on the sub ject, -and that at the end of a year he would be as glad as in the old days to welcome her back to Sutmyside. At the very last Bellairs forced himself to kiss the woman, whom he regarded as a thief, on her forehead....

DON'T CROSS YOUR LEGS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 July 1914
DON'T CROSS YOUR LEGS. "Don't cross your legs" if you wish to avoid appendicitis, is a theory ad vanced by several noted surgeons. In fact, one goes so far as to say that if people never crossed their legs the dread complaint would entirely dis appear. The facts are these. Crossing the legs cramps and squeezes the delicate vermiform appendix. The appendix is irritated, and inflammation sets 1n. Intense pain comes, and then, sudden ly and silently, you are on your back, the sweet and heavy fumes of chloro form begin to numb you, and the ap pendicitis specialist, bends over you with a sharp knife. Gibbs: "I tell you, no one can fool my wife." ' .Dibbs: "Then how did you get her?"
NATURE'S COLD STORAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 July 1914
NATURE'S COLD STORAGE. i| In the coursc o£ liis travels Mr. Henry Seebolnn. the famous orni thologist, once visited the Petchora River, which llowa from the Ural Mountains into the Arctic Ocean, op posite to. Nova Zembla. Along the lower part of the river stretched the tundra, a dreary, uninhabited tree less swamp, covered with ice and snow. Nevertheless, he found that this unattractive spot was the summer home of almost half the bird popula tion o£ the Old World. The traveller reached the region in early April. Forest and tundra were as devoid of life as the Desert of Sa hara; but a change was near. Sud denly 'summer broke over the scene; the ice in the river split and disap peared, the banks steamed hi the sun, and innumerable birds of all sizes aiid colors appeared within forty eight hours. The frozen tundra he came a wide moor, diversified with numerous ..bogs and luk.es.. It was co vered with moss, licliens, heath-like plants, dwarf birch, and millions of acres of clouduerries,...

II. | "I'm" awfully sorry," faltered Nancy, with a startled look in her lovely eyes, "but what you ask is impossible. I cannot marry you. I hadn't the least idea " "But now you know you'll soon bring yourself to say 'Yes' — and 'Thank you,' too," said Austin Myers, in his most egotistical tone. "Why, it's a chance you'd never get again if you lived to be a hundred. I'm some body, I am—and I mean to get to the very top! That's why I stuck out here for ten long years. I wanted the 'pile' to be big enough to float me over there in the old country, and it is. I'll settle a rattling good sum 011 you, and " "PleaseJ please stop. I really am grateful for the honor you have paid me," broke in Nancy, hurriedly, "but it is impossible. Do believe me, and never refer to the matter again." A dark flush crept over Myers's face, and the look was in his eyes which had made many a wretched underling ciwer. He seized Nancy's wrist and held it in a fierce grip. "It can't be impossible, unless there's ...
