Correspondence. THE LAND QUESTION. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 18 September 1915
THE LAND QUESTION. (To the Editor.) Sir,—It is stated that, just in pro portion as a man is anxious for the safety of his family and their progress, the more;i3 the passion; arousedr to pos ses3 a?freehold ^ome that he can call his. very own ; but whence comes the passion V Why.should a man mistrust his power to secure for hiB children ample for their needs ? Because as the law now is, some other man gets a free hold and cbmjplla men to give up to him a large portion of the wealth created by their labor. If every man was per fectly certain that his right of property in the things created by his own labor and intelligence was secure, the crav-. ing for a freehold would cease. Mf every man was guaranteed the use of as much land as ne needed, and the full result of such use, the holiest passion, of the best part of. the .human race would be satisfied, without preying upon the rest of the human .family. To-day, sel fishness has becotae a necessity, and j almost a virtue. He who would pr...

Something Had Happened. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
Something Had Happened. He was giving evidence in a railway accident case, and the counsel, finding it difficult to get any coherent answers from him, suggested that he should tell his own story in Ms own particu lar way. "Well," he began, "it was like this. Bill and I was walking down the rail way track, when suddenly I 'eard a whistle, and Bill and I steps off the track. Then after the train had gone by I steps on the track, again and couldn't see Bill. So I walks along and presently I sees Bill's hat. Then I goes a bit farther and I sees one of Bill's legs. Then I walks on and I sees one of Bill's arms, and then I says, 'By crikey, sometning muster 'appened to Bill.'"

A Point in Naviaation. As a river steamer was returning from a pleasure trip the engines sud denly stopped, and the steamer re mained motionless for several mi nutes. The passengers began to grow anxious, and one of them, a portly pompous person, went up to the cap tain. "What's the trouble, captain?" he inquired "Why have we stopped?" "Too much fog," answered the cap tain curtly. "But I can see the stars overhead quite plainly," argued the passenger. "Mebbe ye can," said the captain grimly. "But unless the b'ilers b'ust we ain't goin' that way!"

AMUSING INCIDENTS. Merry Maria. Down the kitchen stairs, with a resounding crash, fell an entire tray ful of recently-used crockery, not even a salt-cellar remaining unbro ken. In the dining-room the mis tress was in hysterics, and the mas ter rushed to the scene of the disas ter. "Maria! Maria! Whatever have you done?" he cried to the servant. Maria smiled serenely. "Oh, sir," she replied, "it's only the dinner things, sir! What a lucky thing I hadn't washed them up!"
THE VALUE OF RICE PUDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
THE VALUE OF RICE PUDDING. This is not only very wholesome i for the children, but, as a well-known physician strongly holds, it concerns almost everyone over fifty, as rice is a valuable item in the daily dietary then, and a pleasant one, too, if pro perly cooked. Ordinary rice puddings shouli never be made with eggs; the addition of eggs turns the pudding into a custard, and as a rice pudding needs such long cooking the custard becomes hardened. The proportion of rice to,say, a quart of milk is about three and a half ounces, and this rule applies to other kinds of milk pud-1 dings. Rice needs slow cooking, for about two and a-half to three hours; two ounces of suet, shredded or chop ped finely, and added to the milk is an improvement, and makes the pud ding more nourishing. Skimmed milk is often used for these puddings, but in this case suet or a good piece of butter should be put io, as when the cream has been taken from the milk it loses in fat and nourishment, though it retains...

Mutual Identification. It was all over a free-kick, and, grow- J ing more and more heated, the rival captains were in hot dispute. "You're a fool!" shrieked one cap tain at last.

THE FOLLY OF TAKING DIGESTIVE PILLS. A WARNING TO DYSPEPTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
A WARNING TO DYSPEPTICS. The habit of taking .digestive pills after mealsmakes chroniq dyspeptic^ of many thousands of men and women be cause : artificial digesiants, drugs aud medicines have, practically no influence upon the excessive acid-Condition of the stomach, contents which alone is the cause of most forms of iiiSigestion and dyspepsia. The after dfhner pill merely lessens the sensitiveness of the stomach nerves and thus gives W' false sense df freedom from pain whereas if those who are subject to flatulence, heartburn, wind* etc., were to obtajfh a little . pure bisurated magnesia from the chemist and take half a teaspoonful in a little water after meals, there would be no necessity for drugs or medicines because bhurpted magnesia instantly neutralises acidity, stops fermentation arid'thus ensures nor mal painless digestion by enabling the stomach to do its work without hin drance.

BREAD FROM HEAVEN. When Showers of Manna Fell. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
BREAD FROM HEAVEN. When Showers of Manna Fell. "Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written: He gave them bread from heaven to eat."— John vi., 31. Since the days of the Bible the ac tual or material existence of manna has been doubted. But there fell dur ing a copious shower of rain recently in the vicinity of Mardin and Diarbe kir, Asiatic Turkey, a substance that analysts declared to be the veritable manna of Bible days. It was in the form of small globules about the size of millet seeds, and though yellowish on the outside, was perfectly white within. ' The. inhabi tants eagerly gathered it up and with it made excellent bread, for it proved floury, palatable and nutritious. Sam ples were sent to Paris, where chem ists declared it to be a vegetable sub stance of the lichen family, scientific ally known as lecanora esculenta. TIis lichen, found in the most arid mountains of the desert of Tartary, grows so close to the ground among the pebbles that it can be disti...

MRS. THOMAS KENNEDY. The death of Mrs T.

FOR THE FARMER. MATERIAL FOR SILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 25 September 1915
FOR THE FARMER. MATERIAL FOR SILAGE. The first consideration is: What can be used for silage? There may be the surplus grass in spring, or a field may be closed for haymaking, when, if the season prove unfavorable and unsettled, the grass may 'be con verted into silage. Grass may be abundant on the farm in a wet season. It can be cut and stacked almost with out removing stock from the enclo sure. All roughage that would other wise be wasted can be used. Then comes the question: Should crops be specially grown for ensiling? The answer is decidedly yes. Crops that ensile and will only occupy the land for a short time are oats, Italian rye grass, tares, peas and clover. The leguminous plants should be grown mixed with a large proportion of Ital ian rye. Then sorghum, millets and, most useful of all, maize. Of these crops some will probably be fed green to the cows, and all that may not be so used will provide excellent ensilage. These crops can be well recommended. They have been prove...
