WASTE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 10 April 1914

WASTE. By Wm. North. A great manufacturer of tabic mus tard once said that ho would not mind making the public a present of all the mustard they could eat so long as he wbb .paid double for all tliey wasted. Sellers o£ garden seeds say much the same, and one could go on multiplying examples of the same sort of thing. Too good an example might be found in many a bird room, while the owner of a solitary cage bird is almost invariably wasteful. Some waBte is inevitable, so far ok the birds are concerned, though ac toual and total waste may be saved by Living all the sweepings from the cage or aviary to the poultry, assum ing any are Kept. Apart from that, however, a great deal may be done to keep down the seed bill, and the surprising thing is .that so few fan ciers give the matter a thought. Seed mixtures are the most fruit ful cause of waste and, save in a large aviary, their use iB not to be re commended. Every bird lias its lilies and dislikes, and given a dish of seed, it will fln...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 10 April 1914

II. Geraldine naturally knew nothing of Bob Keating or his sins, and sho made but scant reference to them at the luncheon table. Old Farmer Rath way was sure to rob the Insurance Companies, she said, and what did it matter? The villagers had enjoyed a bonfire, and there was the end of it. Her manner toward Leila continued to be gracious; but while it may have deceived her brother, the object of her new civilities was not to bo de ceived. Leila believed her to be a kindly woman at heart, but one who was obsessed by this idea of saving Hugh from what she believed, quite conventionally, to he the penalties of his. folly. For that, Leila Saw, she would sacrifice much, and the so-call ed canons of hospitality first of all. No doubt some plan of action had oc curred to her and she was even then j occupied In carrying it out. 'Leila felt j herself surrounded by perils so sub-1 tie that her woman's intellect could givo no battle to them. She must j leave this house; there could be no alerna...

WHEN IS A COW OLD? [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 10 April 1914

WHEN IS A COW OLD? Provided that a cow 1ms been an exceptional milker in her prime, she may bo worth keeping long after her best days on the chance that she may breed heifers like herself. Although there is no guarantee tlmt a good cow will yiold good mint ing heifers, it Is certain that a bad cow will not, so the good ones should bo kept aB long as possible. The ulti mate loss of an old animal is nothing to the possible milk gain from a strain of good heifer calves. In an ordinary way a cow should be sold at her ninth or tenth year. She is then passing her top yiold in milk, and is still worth a payable price for beef If in good condition; but there are many exceptions to this rule, and Ill health may knoolt off an animal at any age. There is no reason to be lieve that the calves produced late in life will be inforior, and there is no conclusive evidence that tlio milk of an old cow is any poorer than that of a younger one; wliilo if a young bull is used the balance will be kept. T...

THE PRODUCER'S POINT OF VIEW. What Is Farm Management? What is farm management? Mow Is it to be applied to farm problems aa a method of work In their solution? If it Jh not a definite method of solving farm problems, it Is not worth while to pursue Its study. The term has a definite significance; it la a distinct method of attacking individual farm problems. It signifies a well-ordered business; a clearly-defined system of conducting farm operations under a particular set of conditions. There is no more important problem before the farmers in this State than that of mak ing his farming more profitable. -This cannot be done without a more com plete and detailed knowledge of the business on individual farms. How does farm management help us to this knowledge? Farm manage* ment in a word is tlie application of sound principles, good judgment and economic rules to the business of farming.

WHEN WOMEN "POP THE QUESTION." How the Fair Sex Helps Backward Wooers. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 10 April 1914

WHEN WOMEN "POP THE QUESTION." How the Fair Sex Help8 Backward Wooers. Mere mail Is often a peculiarly | "folate" mortal when it comes to such a crucial test of courage as "popping tho question." So much, indeed, is this tbe case that numbers of the lair sex have had to propose to back ward suitors, ami they didnt wait for Leap Year either. Few of tliem popped the question in so many words for that would have been unmaidenly, Lut they managed subtly and surel.v to lead the bashful swain into tho toils almost before he was aware of U*ThuB one diMdent wooer who hesi tated to ask the fateful query was assisted. "Frank," said his loved one, "auntie says if she ltUes my love she wilt give us a house." There was a short pause, and then she went on, slyly, "I think my aunt likes you, Frank." Then, happily, Frank saw tho drift of the remark, and, seizing the opportunity, won a wife and a house. Similarly situated was another dam sel who, having been assiduously wooed for some years by one w...

"The population is about four and a-half millions, including Mr. Andrew Carnegie. It has a peculiar language of its own, ami if one can pronounce it coherently it is an infallible test of sobriety. It possesses consider able mineral weaun, but very little of it finds its way out of the country. "Gold has at times been discovered in certain districts, as well as in the pockets of certain natives, but in both cases it has been found difficult to work. The best-known exports of Scotland are liarry Lauder and Scotch ' whisky, though sufficient of the latter is retained in the country to satisfy the needs of home consumption.

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. To err is masculine; to forgive fe minine* Marriage is never a failure—'but the contracting parties frequently are. All men are tborne free and equal, but most of them spoil it by getting married. If it is anything he has paid to hear the average man .believes it is true, A woman never has mucli use for a man who she can't teach to be jeal ous. * "Widow's weeds" rarely inter fere with the growth of a future crop of orange blossoms.

Pity the Editor. "What's the matter?" inquired the foreman as lie entered the sanctum for copy, and noted the editor's swol len forehead, puffed red eye and tat tered, dusty coat. "Did you fall down stairs?". "No—only that," replied the editor, pointing with his finger t to a para graph in the paper before him. "It's In our account of the Crapley-Smitli wedding. It ought to read: 'Miss Smith's dimpled, Bhining face formed a pleasing contrast to Mr. Crapley's strong,, bold physiognomy.' But see how it was printed." And the foreman, read: "Miss Smith's pimpled, pkinny face formed a pleasing contrast to Mr. Crapley's strange, bald physiognomy." i "Crapley was in here just now," concluded the editor sadly.

"All golfing people," as she said to the Archdea con, "and such enthusiasts! I don't thing there will be anything left of the Kllspindic links when they have gone."

Not Meant for Either. Many years ago, at a dinner party in Glasgow, there was present a law yer of very slmrp practice fond ot giving toasts or sentiments. After the cloth was removed and tlio bottle had gone around once or twice, the ladles withdrew to the drawing-room—all but one very plain old maid. She remained behind, and as the conversation began to get a little mas culine our friend of the "long robe" was anxious to get lid oC the "aid mnid," and for this purpose rathor prematurely aslted the privilege ot giving a toast. This being granted, ho rose and gave the old toast of "Hon est men and bonnle lassos." iT.he toast was drunk with honor, when the dnine, who was sitting next the lawyer, roBO from her seat, gavo end of her bony linger, and, having said, "That toast neither applies to ; you nor mo," left tho room. Telegrams wore invented by the father of lies, undoubtedly. After all, anything will do for truth—writ ten on pink paper in somebody else's pencil Bcribble. That is ...
