LONDON, Wednesday. Sir Conan Doyle referring to the suffragette outrages anticipated that there would be lynching in England if the suffragettes continued their militant tactics. When the English mob were thoroughly arouted he said it is no respector of sex. In the London Derby, Durban, the only American liorse entered, won easily by three lengths. The favorite, Kennymore, was hopelessly left when the barrier rose. The King's horse, Breakspear, was sixth. The winner started at 20 to 1. Hapsburg, Peter Hermit, and Licuts.

A Millstone Around His Neck. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 28 May 1914

A Millstone Around His Neck. 1 That is what the "boarder cow," the "robber cow," the unprofitable scrub cow is to the farmer. Go where I will for • my figures, I flnrl the average production so low that those cows that go below ■ the aver age must be losers to the keepers. .Just lately I got figures from several creameries, and then ascer tained the number of cows that con tributed to the centre of manufac ture, and was not surprised to learn that the average production per cow was from 156 to 184 lb. of butter. I was not surprised because I have been meeting the same results in al most every investigation I made where a considerable number of cows was concerned. The man with the average cow was not holding his own ; and how -did the man with those below the average fare ? The price of butter will never • be high enough to make a 125 lb, cow profitable. The only way that cow can bo of any use to the world 1e to furnish prime extra • choice beef for the hotel or restaurant table. The...

" Tarcoola," House Street, Tenterfield.* DAmviNG.—South Coast dairymen, after visiting Yaneo under the guid aneo of the Irrigation Commissioner (Mr. L. A. B. Wade), are enthusias tic about the dairying possibilities of the irrigation area. Mr. J. J. Kinross, of Jamberoo, states there is 110 part of the State that can compare with Yanco from a dairyman's point of view. A suggestion has been made that the Government should assist dairymen willing to transfer from the coast by preparing farms at Yanco.

Sprouted or Unsprouted Seed. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 28 May 1914

Sprouted or Unsprouted Seed. — ■ 9 There 1b nothing very new' In. thd plan of allowing potato seed t& sprout before planting, but there Uas' been little definite data concerning results available for the farmer. The Victorian department has been' carrying out some very useful trials' and a few facts are available which are decidedly interesting. In 1908, when the trials began, sprout ed seed as compared with unsprout ed showed an increase of production equal to £35 per acre from some varieties, while the whole field show ed an average of over four tone, or £28 per acre, the market price of potatoes being £7 per ton. The experiment was repeated in the Bea son 1909-10, when the increased' yield from the sprouted seed was over two tons per acre, while for the present season the difference in favour of the sprouted seed varied from 2J to GI tons per acre. Sure ly such results as these are enough to make the farmer who persists in adopting the old plan pause and consider ? If not...

MANURING TESTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 28 May 1914

MANURING TESTS. A test applied to one of ' '•« poor est fields on Mr. J. TO. Cox's farm at Bilton, Warwickshire, England, to ascertain the value of basic slag and kninit and different kinds of linie on the iiny crop, has given a striking example of the beneficial effect of~ basic sing on poor grass land. The dressings were applied in January, 1011, but the crops in that year were so light, owing to the drought, that they were not weighed. On the 13th of July last however, the grass was cut and weighed from ail equal area on each of tho plots, when it was found that the dressing of (i 2-13 cwt. of basic slag per acre hud resulted in a yield of 4.'5.(5 cwt. of hay per acre, or a gain of Ju2 9s. 3d per acre over the untreated plot, which gave jtfrtly 19.1 cwt. of liny of the value of £2 7s. 9d. Basic slag and kai nit. together resulted in a gain of £1 J-Is. (id. per acre, and super alone gave a gain over tho un treated plot of 19s. 7{d. per acre; but kainit and ground lime together res...

Undercurrents. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 28 May 1914

Undercurrents. Though the political world is quiet enough on the surface, there are strong undercurrents which bode dis turbance in the not very distant future. The innuendoes directed by Mr. Hol inan, the State Premier, against Mr. Meagher, the Speaker of the Assem bly, lia^e been kept in the background by the simple and easy expedient of omitting to convene a meeting of the Caucus. But this cannot continue indefinity. Caucus must meet shortly and .when it does it will bo found that it is divided between partisans of the two Statesmen. Mr. Meagher has challenged the Premier to formulate his charges. But the aspersions re main on record, without having been either formulated or withdrawn. Even if the Caucus, for politic mo tives, could be induced to tolerate this unsatisfactory state of affairs, the Assembly as a whole cannot be expected to suffer it. If the charges have any foundation, Mr. Meagher is signally unfit to be its Speaker. If not, they ought to be withdrawn as publily as...

CHAPTER XXIX. IN A TIGHT PLACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 28 May 1914

CHAPTER XXIX. IN A TIGHT PLACE. Harkness started to pick out the moil lie wanted, and he had chosen about half the number when the sharp crack of a riiie was hoard at no great distance, followed almost immediately by a second report and a shrill yc-ll. The shots came from sonic point, beyond the waggon, and they at once slopped the proceed ings and caused general alarm. The men, mounted and 011 foot, instinct ively huddled around the iron-cov ered vehicle, from the ends of which the white, _ anxious faces of the women were peering out. None doubted that the two scouts who were patrolling in the vicinity had run across some Kaflirs, though an element of mystery was added to the affair by a silence that lasted for several moments. Then the swift and mil tiled clatter of hoofs was hoard, and into the open space bj^JJie river galloped 0110 one of the two absent men, iWoberly by name. The message of danger was plainly stamped on his face, and as lie jerked his panting horse to its haunch...

Little wonder that his cheeks turned pale and that he swore, under his breath! Was this. Humphrey . Ghurton com ing ? he asked himself. Had the supposed corpse been merely feign ing death ? An instant's reflection convinced Haygarth that he was mistaken, and he dismissed the mad idea with a curse at his own stupidity. But without exception, the other men, being none the wiser, believed that their missing comrade was return ing hi safety. They shouted and cheered with delight, looking to wards the horseman and waving to the signals us he advanced at a trot. Suddenly lie swerved aside into th...

'Coburn, secretary, of the Kansas Board of Agriculture, in relating the story of "Kansas and and her Alfalfa" (lucerne) says : "The credulity of the stranger to Alfalfa, however fair-minded, is in variably taxed by a recitation of the truth about this wonderful plant; even the facts cut in two leave him in a perpetual state of doubt as to the veracity of the narrator, but thoroughly convincing are the exper iences of those who are actually its growers. It is a perennial blessing to those who are so fortunate as to have an area devoted to its cul ture, .yielding annually, whether the season be wet or dry, its several cuttings of hay, unsurpassed in ton nage and quality.

CHAPTER XXX. [Newspaper Article] — The Tenterfield Courier and District Advocate — 28 May 1914

CHAPTER XXX. The sudden appearance of the white tnen had one good effect in stantly. ■ The Kaffirs on the river flank of the impi ceased firing at the waggon in its passage, and were seenj running towards the main body. But there was no wavering, no sign of retreat. With defiant screeches tho black horde came on, delivering a straggling volley that fortunately went high. "They mean business," shouted Harkness ; "but we'll give them a taste of a charge. Keep well to gether, and fire rapidly. Now, for ward !" : It was perhaps a foolish move, since, the safety of the waggon hav ing been secured, it would have been possible to retrent and cross the fording. But the men had old scores to wipe out with the Kattirs, and they were only too glnd to obey their leader's order ; so with a burst of cheers they swept down tho slope and on through the bush, firing volley after volley from tho "saddle. Heavy loss was inflicted oil the front fjinks of the impi, and the ad vance was chocked. The dusk...
