MANURING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
MANURING POTATOES. Jt'otatoes, like all other crops, re quire a complete manure, viz., a ma nure containing nitrogen, phosphoric acid ami potash, lime also if the soil is deficient in this necessary consti tuent. Nitrogen may he used in var ious forms—blood and hone, 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 mucli 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, bonedust, or slag, according to the nature of the soil or the particular fancy of tile' user. In any case, a lib eral dressing is necessary. Potash is best applied in the form of sulphate of po...
COLOR OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
COLOR OF MILK. Tile color of milk will vary with the breed of cow yielding the milk, nuil the feeding the cow receives. Some foods have the effect of giving th milk a good flavor, and other kinds of food just the reverse. The natural color of milk is due to the coloring matter, "lactochrome," pre sent in the butterfat. Milk is paler in color during winter or when the animals are given dry feed. Rich col oring milk yields butter of a deep yellow color when it is well made. Several faults in the making of but ter cause much of the color to dis-. appear, and this should be guarded against.

BERRINGA V. SCARSDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
BERRINGA Y. SCARSDALE. The only really unfavorable day for football experienced this ueason was Saturday, and even then the attendance at the local Recreation Reserve was fairly large, Berringa and Scarsdale were the competing teams, and although the ground was very sloppy a good contest was wit nessed, The game throughout was a very ovenly-contested one, both clubs being represented by strong teams. The victory, however, fell to the home team by a majority of 8 points. The excitement rose in the first quarter, when, not long af^er the bounce of the ball, " Butcher" O'Brien took a fine mark close to the uprights, and although it was an angle shot he was the first to rise the two flags. This made Scarsdale pie cautious and they began to mix the play a little, and soon had the ball up their end. M'Keogh marked cleverly from a kick from thfe centre and sent the ball in tho opposite direction. Gleeson discovered it, however, and made a dash along the north wing, passing to Hatfield, who...

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
To the Editor. Sir,—I have read many letters on this subject in your valuable col umns giving reasons for non-at tendance at church. Many of the reasons advanced are only lame ex cuses. It is easy to blainp others;it soothes the mind; but the faults of ethers, with all their starch and snumbs, should not prevent any person from attending a place of •worship. "Pro Bono Publico" •wishes the Church to take its proper ■place in the world. That will come about when people take their proper place in the church. The church needs men like "Pro Bono Publico" •who sees the old church's faults and liis own. The Church is waiting for Bien of high intellectual powers, and more particulaily those men who Lave the moral courage to'stand up to their convictions and express ■without fear or favour words in ob edience to the royal law, which will help to cleanse the hearers' hearts of its dross. .Some who attend church complain of cold feet, others are cold headed, and most are cold hearted. They are...
Correspondence. (We do not identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents.) WHY PEOPLE DO NOT GO TO CHURCH. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
csirespoiiflen. (We do not identify ourselves with tho opinions expressed by correspondents.) "WHY PEOPLE DO NOT GO TO CHURCH. To the Editor. Sir,—Perhaps the most active rea son iu a district anch as this, is that, as they are mostly hornet bread winners, we find that Sunday is just the day for them to recuperate their tired bodies after the week's work, and a drive or walk of perhaps four .miles or rnoro is not, in this sadly j.fglected part of the State, calcula ted to act as a reviver for their ex pense and energy. As " Pro Bono Publico " «typ, the rituals of reli gion are dismal, and of very little use towards achieving that for ■which all religions have, or should Aave, their purpose. As a day of rest, I think Sunday is an admirable institution ; but in the light of the evolution of all things organic and probably iiiorganie, it does not fol low that Sunday ib or should be any more " holy " than any other day. As to church being unattractive, how can it be otherwise? when theo...

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 no doubt about your being a jay, an' sis ter said there was small hopes of your poppin', 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 bending anxiously over a spirit lamp on which was a small pan. "Well," said one, "what is it to night?" "Guess," murmured the professor. "Micrococci?" "Pneumococci?" 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, we give it up. What is it?" The professor smiled blandly and rep...

II. •Tm sorry, Pamela—will you for give nicV i 1 was u cad to speak such words to you." It was the next day, and l'amela, was taking some cakes out of the oven, lifted a hot, Hushed lace and smiled into her lover's lace. The smile tola James Dawson all he wanted to know, and, moving im petuously forward, he clasped Pamela 111 his arms and gave her a l'erveilt kiss. ".Mind the cakes,'" she laughed; then, as he released her, "now you must come and see Tina." With light, deft touch, she first re moved the cakes 011 to a wooden board, then, beckoning to Jim, led the way into a long, low parlor. The man followed indifferently. The last time he had seen Tina she had been in the pig-tail stage; and, hav ing ragarded her then as a tiresome necessity to be endured, he did not expect to be particularly thrilled by the sight of her now. But when he reached the threshold he paused in wondering admiration; for lying in a graceful attitude on a couch near the window was a young girl with a quan t...

THE HAND OF FATE, j By MRS. CORNOCIC When the prison gates clanged be hind him, and Steven Grendon step ped out a free man into the April sunsliiue, his first coherent thought was one that ill accorded with the calm beauty o£ the world, waking to her livery of spring. A warder con ducted him to the station, bade him a friendly farewell with a few kindly words, and left him. lie was a free man. 1-le hardly realised it as the train steamed away from the little station, and he left frowning Port land, with its bleak rocks, its quar ries, its outlook over illimitable sea, behind him. The one all-pervading thought in his mind was one of re venge. " Wasn't it natural? Was he to be blamed for wishing with all his heart and strength that the man. who had deliberately left him to suffer for five hideous years in a convict pri son, for a crime he had never com mitted, should be confronted with his own villainy and brought to book? He was not even sure of the man, yet he had suspicions. Who el...
