PEN PICTURES OF THE PAST. TfUAL, -OF THE DORSETSHIRE LAIIORERS. Tho first important epoch in tho history of" modern Ttrittsh labour politics was tho formation, in 18<H, of tho Grand National Consolidated Trades Union, a really important association, numbering as it did half a million adherents, who represented ovory branch of labour, including agriculture. liven Women's unions were affiliated. .Tho tremendous possibilities of such a united bi'ily of workers miturnllj' aroused the attention of the governing classes, and * prosecution was instituted for "unlawful conspiracy," of which tho most salient incident is that of tho Dorchester labourers. At this period, when tho average wago of tho English farmhand was 10s. a week, tho Dorset laborers re ceived 7s. Half a dozen of such men, Methodists and local preachers; started a "Grand Lodge of the Na tional Friendly Society of Agri cultural Labourers" at Tolpuddlo (Dorsetshire).

Quite Correct. 1 . He waa one of those .inquisitive, loquacious strangers who, not con tent with telling you of nil their doings and nchievements, insist on learning nil your secrets. And poor Jones found himself alone with the man in the com partment of a railway train which ran without a stop from Crewe to London. Having asked countless questions concerning his fellow-traveller's busi ness and the object of his journey, the stranger: began to make inquiry about his family. "Well, if you really want ...to know,", said the exaspernted Jones, "I'll tell you. (I havo a wife and five children, but I've never seen one of them." "Never seen one of them?" bogan the stranger.

Rare British Moth. ENTOMOLOGISTS AND THE THOMPSON!. This moth, which is a striking example of the curious colour variation common among insects, Urds, tiiul animals, is a special ob ject of interest to eutcinntogistfi, in view of tho roccnt discovery of a new and third variety by Mr. J.

When Walking is Hard Work. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 26 June 1914

When Walking is Hard Work. People often express surprise that soldiers on the march cover only ten or twelvo miles of ground per day. Even then a good many men fall out. through fatigue, some faint, and the whole are completely done up at the end of the day. ' But the soldier is, nevertheless, a first-rate walker. It is all a mat ter of foot-tons of energy expend ed. Take an ordinary laborer, and his day's work will be equal to 300 tons lifted one foot high. An eleven-stone man, walking seventeen inilcs on the level, docs the same amount of muscle work. But mark, if he carries an overcoat weighing 61b., ho does 311 foot tons. Now, tho soldier is a. regular pack-horse, and the kit that he . car ries averages about 601b. in weight. So that ho does exactly as much work in a twelve-mile march as an: ordinary man in his seventeen-mile walk. Besides, the soldier has to "break camp" before starting, and at the finish oF the march he has to pitch camp, draw water, collect . fuel, clean rifl...

The Ether of Space. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 26 June 1914

The Ether of Space. Sir Oliver Lodge delivered a lec ture at Bedford College, tho other day, on the "Kther of Space." He stated that "he was not sure" about the ether being cohesive or not. Mr. G. T. Itowley now writes :-"I would like to project the theory that ether beyond the boundary of our gaseous atmosphere can be~no other than cohesive, be cause it is certain that there aro no gases or dust, or vapour, of any description to separate tho parti cles of ether in the unfathomable space. Therefore it must bo pure, and, being pure, must essentially be cohesive. Not so where it abounds in our atmosphere, for tho molecules of oxygen, and hydrogen, . together with the other gases, being con stantly changed by tho climatic influences, interfere with the cohes ion of ether. It might be said of tho inexplicable nature of radium, that it is' a substance which dis agrees with the particles of ether coming into contni't with its sur face, and throws them ofT again, making the undulntions app...

THE ECONOMICAL PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 26 June 1914

THE ECONOMICAL PIG. The pig is the most economical of oil animals. It has been foind in ' America that ot what a horse eats 152 per cent, goes to waste, 44 per cent, ol the food consumed by cattle is similarly lost and 32 per cent of all that sheep take into their stom achs. But only 12 per cent, of what a pi^ cats is wasted. Of the food eaten by a pig 52 per cent, goes to mj^e growth, while a sheep utilises only 25 per cent of its sustenance for growing, which, of course, means the ' production of meat. These figures are obtained from recent experiments made by Government experts, who find, as a result of their study, that the pig has what they call "cco-o:nic superiority" even over poultry. This means that it produces more mr-nt in proportion to its weight, and the animal weighs more in proportion to the amount of toed it consumes. It was found that S4 per cent of the carcase of a pig is used as meat, 73 per cent, ot a bullock, and 54 per cent of a sheep. The pig seems to i have t...

THE FARM AND DAIRY: THE JERSEY-SHORTHORN CROSS A wiTter in th» "Mark Lane Ex press Agricultural Journal" strongly advocates tho crossing of the Short horn with the Jersey, as lie consider!) it one of the most generally useful class of cattle for the dairyman, es pecially occupiers of small farmH where the dairy, in one phase or an other, is a retail business of prim ary importance. The presumption is that he had in view what is cillcd a dual purpose breed. History, how ever, has shown that this cross has not been such a success as would warrant to give it a further trinl. ?Reading through the plens, th* writer puts in favour of his conten tion, it is evident that he has nor. studied the history of the two breeds sufficiently.
