The Pig Breeding Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 April 1914
The Pig Breeding Industry. The statistics for 1913 show that y year there were 240,()0U pigs in Victoria as against 2s(),000 iu Jtf91 -23years ago, although the poptt litionof the State, and therefore, the local consumption of pig pro ducts lias largely increased in the interval. In view of this it was somewhat surprising to sec it re ported iu the metropolitan press kit week that there was a "slump" intk price of piss at Rochester. The conditions were probably local, and in view of the prices paid by consumers for pork and bacon, it is remarkable that there should be a "slump" in the market price for pigs iu the State. The safety against "slumps" is to develop the export trade in pig products to Great Britain. The amount John Ball pays for pig products from atnoidis amazing. In 191- the rnpmU of pig products to the United Kingdom were valued at The United States | a few years ago dominated the ' British market in beef aud pig pro duels, but the rapid growth of her population has co...

Why Hair Falls Out. (Uk. x. Di'claud). Vour hair falls out either be cause the roots shrivel up and die, ot because the scalp relaxes aud looseus its hold upou the hair roots. This is almost invariably due to iaudtufl germs which rob the hair its nutrition, actually starving H to death. To stop falling, hair and prevent total or partial bald ness the daudruff germ must be destroyed. For this purpose, physicians aud hair specialists now iuvariably prescribe a lotion com posed of ]'l dram menthol crystals, J ounces of bay rum, and one ounce of lavona de composee. Rub wll into the scalp with the tinker , and every daudruff germ will be destroyed withiu two or three tajs. The hair will stop tailing out and begin \o grow at an amax >ns rate, and brittle aud scanty hair will become soft, glossy and luxuriant. The results following tfic use of this formula are so truly 1 "uiarkable that I strongly advise ■ Wety reader whose hair falls out; loS'ive it a trial at once. 1 lu giving evidenc...

OUT FROM THE SHADOWS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 April 1914
our FROM THE SHADOWS IAN GROSVENOR. Nobody ever thought of calling •James Hallerton by any other name than that of Plain James. Fortune had not been kind when it fashioned his features. Without being precise ly ugly to the point of repulsion, he was singularly ill-favored. With the exception of his eyes, there was no redeeming point about his face. The nickname the country had given him fitted him to a nicety; still, though correct in detail, the knowledge he deserved it rankled in the owner's breast. At no time did it hurt him more than when he.fell in love with the prettiest girl in the village and, in dong so, discovered he was in the running with Steve Batwicke. Hand some as a Greek god, it was but little surprising that Daisy Martin should incline her ear more readily to the latter's lure of accent than to that of Plain James. It was a good month before Hallerton made this discovery. When he did he allowed his jealous re sentment of his own imperfections to run riot for the fir...
The Degree of Annoyance. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 24 April 1914
The Degree of Annoyance. The Kaiser, who has apparently banned the "tango," has a habit of gently tugging at his left ear when anything bothers him. One day, some years ago, when he ■was on a visit to England, he was handed a telegram. The contents of the message apparently displeased, him, c.for he immediately began tug ging at his ear. The Prince of Wales, then a small boy, watched the performance with considerable interest. "Uncle," he said at length, "why are you pulling your ear?" "Because I'm annoyed, I suppose," replied the Kaiser. "And when you're very annoyed," persisted the young Prince, "what do you do then?" "Then I pull somebody else's!" an nounced His Majesty viciously. "You're terribly severe in your re ligion, Donald. I suppose you think we're all going to perdition, and no body will be saved but you a°nd your minister!" "I'm not so sure o' that," said Don ald, thoughtfully. "Ye ken, I whiles hae ma doots about the minister!"
