OPEN COLUMN. "National Credit and How to Use It" (A PAMPHLET BY EX-MAYOR PALMER, OF GRANVILLE) (Continued from last week.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 24 August 1895
OPEN COLUMN. ' National Credit and How to Use It' (a PAAEPHUST By kx-uayob palmer, OF GRANVILLE.) (Continued from last tceek.) The author, we all have seen, proposes an annual repayment of four per oent and 'profits.' Surely, however, Mr. Palmer can not but be aware of the fact that profits are in compatible with proper State management. No student of eoonooucs can admit or recog nise the right of the State to make pecuniary gain out of the management of any cosiness ; or can give such gain-making any place in any scheme he may proponnd. How far can a true regard for the public interest co-exist with an anticipation of so ninch per cent return ? We are, even now, in this very land, goffering from the subordination of the great ends of public and social service to mere i( commercial principles.' The highest philosophy teaches that gain-making, howerer moderate, cannot , be reconciled with that true service ot oar fel lows which is, with one exception, the highest servioe of all. In o...

Taste in the Toilet [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 24 August 1895
Taste in the Toilet One of the ladies who sang at a re gent entertainmefnt at 'Smithfield was a poem of tasty dressing. Her quiet sage-green dress matched faultlessly her well-fitting dark-grey gloves. Her wealth ot silken hair was brushed off her forehead,— a home of light and shade. On the neck of her bodice rested 1'ust a trifle of the prettiest lace ; and a ireast-knot of yellow daffodils gave the necessary touch of colour to make the picture perfect.

FARM AND ORCHARD. Spraying. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 24 August 1895
FARM AND ORCHARD. Spraying. Hie following is one of tbe cheapest and most effective mixtures now in general use or should be : Keeosene Emulsion. — Soft soap, 81bs ; Kerosene, lqt. ; Water, 4gals. Warm the soap until it becomes liquified, re ^jpve from near the fire, add the kero sene -and agitate rapidly for five or ten minutes, until it becomes a cream; mass, from whioh the kerosene will not sepa rate on standing. Dilute with water so that the kerosene will be one-sixteenth of the mixture. If properly prepared, it can be used with safety upon nearly all plants, except squashes, melons, cu cumbers and others of the squash family. A remedy ieit for all sucking insects, and for others with soft bodies, with which it can be brought in contact. A hard soap emulsion can be made by dissolv ing two lbs. of hard soap in boiling water, and using it instead of the soft soap.
Pruning Fruit Trees. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 24 August 1895
Pruning Fruit Trees. In pruning plums remember that they produce their fruit on small natural spurs, -which are situated at the ends and along the sides of the bearing shoots one year up to four or five years old. In most varieties branches are two years old before tbey carry a crop, and the same branches and spurs will continue in bearing for a number of years. The apple and pear bear their fruit upon small terminal and lateral spurs, or short, robust shoots, which spring from the young branches of two or three years growth. The terminal fruit buds are the first to appear and the first to bear, and of all toes in cultivation the fruit wood of the apple remains in bear ing for the greatest number of years. The peach and the nectarine bear their fruit on the young wood of the previous year's growth, the blossoms rising immediately from the bud. In pruning this tree, therefore, the whole aim mast be to secure a succession of . yearling wood. This cannot be too strongly understood by b...
The Pig. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 24 August 1895
The Fig. In a certain sense a pig is a factory — a mill. Provide him with a good feed and he makes good bacon ; but stint him jri food, no matter how perfect his breed, liis form and fattening qualities, he cannot make good flesh. To expect a bsdljrfed sow to produce vigorous, healthy pigs of good size, aqd with a tendency to grow rapidly and mature early, is as reasonable as toexpect to raise a good crop on poor soil. On most fanqs a suitable patch can be found where sorghum, pumpkins, sugar-beets, or maqgold-wnrzel will grow. These 'pulped or slioed and mixed with a little cocumeal make splendid baoon yielding material,

POULTRY NOTES. The Grantham Poultry Farm, MB. O. H. MOULDS' STOCK AT DURAL. We believe it is not generally known what an extensive and excellent poultry farm Mr. 0. H. Moulds and bis two sons conduct at Doral. Taking Ferry's coach from Parra inatta, a visitor can be landed at Grantham Poultry Farm after a pleasant country drive, of ao no or and a half. Mr. Moulds is a quiet, nnftflfniPiiPg man, who has for some few years now toned bis attention to pore-bred poultry, with a very considerable amount of buo *««« His birds (or breeding purposes are all pfppffd up, in somewhat close quarters, but in front ot each tow ol pens is a large wired-in yard with seed of some sort generally, and Into whioh the birds are allowed to run by tonus, and it is a treat tbe birds really seem to appreciate and enjoy. Iff, Moulds keeps nearly every breed, and to Sthe round with him will give our readers e best idea of what he has. For instance, the | first pen visited contains a nioe Brown Leghorn oookerel...

SMITHFIELD. Municipal News. NOMINATION. On Monday, at noon, the offioial nomination ot candidates to sit in tbe Smithfield Munioipal Council, in the room of Aid.

Cantata. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 24 August 1895
ICantata. On Sunday last, a number of talented musicians connected with St. James's Church, Smithfield, produced, at the Lecture HaU, the sacred cantata, ' Golden Links.' The promoter was Mr. Rivers Lloyd, and his associates were — Mrs. Critchley, Mrs. Paine, Miss Farey, and the Misses Critchley (3). The connective readings were given by Mr. B. O'Conor, who negotiated his share of the afternoon's business in a manner that left nothing to be desired. It is no exaggeration to say that those who attended the sacred concert were well repaid in respect of that point alone, in hearing the masterful render ing of the printed story as the reader pieoed together tbe musical fragments. Miss Critchley presided at the piano ; and her work was most sympathetically done. MissPrisoilla Critchley and Miss Farey sustained the soprano parts ; Mrs. Paine and Miss L- Critchley were the contraltos. Mr. Rivers Lloyd was the tenor ; and Mr. Critchley the bass. The solo, 'Tired,' given by Miss Farey, was o...
Cricketers' Concert [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 24 August 1895
Cricketers' Concert The Crioketers' Concert, at Smith field, was, in certain respects, a success, though one unique feature of the event was that no less than eight of the per sons whose 'tim appeared on the official programme distributed in the hall failed to put in an appearance. Mr. B. Q'Conor occupied the chair. Miss Rochester opened the programme with the instrumental item, ' Fantasia of American airs,' nicely rendered. Next followed a song, ' Who dat oallin' so sweetly, given by Master Wilton, a lad who played tus own accompaniment, and gave promise of no small power as an instrumentalist in the future. Mr. S. Cummings sang, in character, the comio, ' That's where they find me,' and being reoalled gave, cleverly, as an enoore, 'The servants', ball.' Mrs. Guazzini — a lady whose gifts are fre quently used for the laudable purposes of promoting the enjoyment pf her' fellow-townspeople, and of assisting in good works— sang, with success, the next item on the programme.
