VETCHES OR TARES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

VETCHES OR TARES. Vetches or tares are of two distinct kinds—those sown in the autumn for spring or early summer use, and those sown in the spring which come in after the winter sowing is used up. There are few crops which yield such a large amount of succulent green food, though perhaps for special pur poses other crops are preferable, but for general use and under all condi tions tares cannot be beaten. The amount of seed required per acre is about three bushels of tares and one bushel of oats or rye, the latter being sown to keep the tares off the ground somewhat and so prevent rotting in wet weather. In order to gain the full benefits from growing this green crop the sow ings should be made at different inter vals, beginning as early as. possible, when the land can be prepared, so that successive cuttings are obtained without allowing them to become ripe. Tares are more suitable for soiling purposes than graziiig.as this latter plan is very wasteful, much of the food being tramp...

THE BUSY BEE [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

THE BUSY BEE Winter is close upon us. In the coolest of our districts bees have al ready retired, and before the monf'i is out the retirement will be general. During the warmer portions of the days, especially it' the sun is bright, the bees will still venture out, but they will not wander far from liome iL last month's advice has been at tended to, i.e., if they are supplied with sufficient honey to carry them on till spring, or the coming breeding season. If bees are forced to go for aging on bright winter days, the sud den atmospheric changes prevent the return of many, and a good supply of food in the hive is the only remedy. I* also forms one of the best methods to keep up the warmth of the hive. On. every occasion when the weather is bright and drying, remove the wraps, etc., from the hives, and spread them out to dry. External dampness produces internal dampness, which is one of the most prolific causes of di sease. Just before sundown return the protections to the hives. The...

II [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

II. Ttie letter staggered Hugh, and his perplexity increased the more he thought upon it. Well done or ill-done, he felt it his duty to let 'Leila know exactly what had happened, and to let her know immediately, If she charged him with a breach of trust, lie knew he would not defend him self with success, for had he not pledged his word to her, and would a woman believe him? Upon the oth er side was the wisdom of Geraldine. How shrewd she had been; how quick to do the right thing! He began to see that all his heroics in the prison were so much vain-glorious nonsense, and would never have stood the test of reason. It would have been mad ness to have carried away the lad upon the yacht, and opinion would haye condemned both man and wife. Geraldine had solved the riddle. K>" had yet to learn what pri"e of Leila's affections he must pay for her wit. Would Leila condemn him. He re membered her sweetness, her despair, the gentle sorrow she had made so brave an effort to hide from him. ...

CHAPTER XIII. The Price of Silence. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

CHAPTER XIII-. The Price of Silence. I Hugh returned to the Carltou Ho tel at a quarter to five. He was a little surprised not to Hud Geraldine there; but he imagined that she might have taken Desdy to the Hippodrome or to Maskelyne's—she who had such little taste for all theatrical shows herself. Had she done so, it would. have been a new victory for this ama zing child, who seemed able to bring anybody to his feet, and had already conquered half the staff at the Carlton —while he was an eternal source of wonder to the matchless Joseph. Hugh was well aware of Geraldine's real affection for him, but he began to think that never would he have her favor for Leila, but for the untoward circumstances of these later days. There are some women who can live a whole lifetime upon a volcano of profound emotions, and yet never let the world see so much as a wraith of smoke above the inscrutable mount. Geraldine was just such a woman. There were circumstances whereun der she would have given h...

Leila and Her Lovtr, By MAX PEMBERTON. Published by Arrangement with. Ward, Lock and Co. Ltd., London and Melb. (All Rights Reserved.) IV. It was half-past three when he ar rived ai the prison—oddly enough the first time he had entered one in all his life. All the great traditions of the house of Donald had to do with the activities of manhood, war, the chase, the camps and courts of kings. He had known Aberfeldy Castle for a home since he had been a little lad, had found his childish kingdom on the wild moorland or by the rugged sea shore. He knew little of cities, less of the sordid phases of twentieth cen tury life. London had been for him a vast theatre wherein he had seen the show from the boxes rather than from the stalls—while of the pit he had but the vaguest impressions. To such a man a prison stood at the nadir of life's purpose. He remember ed once seeing a poor woman in Aber feldy who had returned from Edin burgh gaol, and he ,recalled the fur tive home-coming of the wre...

JOPKINS' DREADFUL MISTAKE. A Little Joke Which Failed. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 2 May 1914

JOPKINS' DREADFUL MISTAKE. J A Little Joke Which Failed. Joplcins had read somewhere that if a woman got hold of a newspaper with a clipping cut out of it she would never rest until she had pro cured a complete paper and read the mi&sing item. This struck .Topklns as a very shrewd and Machiavellian plan of exposing this well-known weakness of lovely woman and he resolved to put. it into practice. So that night when he went home from the office there ostentatiously protruded from his coat pocket the day's paper, from which he had neat ly cut a paragraph referring to the rings of Jupiter or some such matter. He threw the paper to one side in a careless way, and after supper not ed with an unholy glee that Mrs. Jop kins had secured it and was running her eye over the bargain ads., and working her way, after the manner of her sex, through the personals, marriage notices, and locals, back to the telegraphic dispatches. Presently Jopkins observed a sud den and suspicious frown ove...

Wa6ted Economy. A tourist was stranded in Norway with only enough money in his pocket' to pay his passage back to England, lie thought the matter over, and came to the conclusion that he would buy the ticket, and that as a sea-trip only lasted a couple of days he yould go without food that length of time. He realised that if he stayed in Norway till his money was spent he would never be able to get back home. So he went 011 board the steamer and bought his ticket. He closed his ears to the sound of the luncheon bell, and when dinner-time came, and a fellow passenger asked him to accompany him to the dining-room, he politely de clined on the ground that he felt somewhat unwell. The next morning he skipped break fast by getting up late, and at lunch time he kept to his room. At dinner time that evening, however, he was so hungry that he could have eaten a pair of shoes. "I am going to eat," he said, "even if I am thrown overboard afterwards. I might as well be drowned as starved tc de...
