The Form of a Dairy Cow. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 12 August 1892
The Form of a Dairy Cow. Every practical dairyman who selects a cow for dairy work has more or less defined notion of what her form must b. and how she shall he built and finished, and while dairy qualities are not alto gether dependent upon construction of the carcase, and many exceptions arise to any supposed rule. but there isa well established guiding principle that is near enough for all practical purposes. This is the formula as laid down by ian eminent authority in the " Practical Farmer "--' The law of judging a dairy cow is now very closely allied to the de velopment of her backbone and her appendages. The cow of large dairy performance is one that thows larger spinal proportions and spinal cord. 'The heads of great milking cows are alwvays fine and bony, with large protruding eyes and a strong jointing spinal column to the head.

TURNING OF A NEW LEAF. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 12 August 1892
I TURNING OF A NEW LEAF. .T was a commodious dwelling in the city, more home-like than lretentious. It stood close ton brown church with pillows, in front of which two tall evergreen oaks stood as sentinels. Not grim and silent sentinels, but alert, expansive, whispering to each other of the holiday festivities which ruled the hour within the church, the win dows of which were all alight. A man in shaggy overcoat and elouched hat, which pretty well concealed his features, was pacing the narrow brick walk, which extended between the house and the church. He was watcling the windows of the dwell ing, longing for just one glimpse of grace ful forms through the half-.prlted cimson draperies, and listening to the soft, low music issuing from within, with the feeling, one might suppose, of a repentant angel whohad strayed outside the gate of l'.aradise. It was hard to be outlawed, and it did not easo the pain to know that lie had brought. the misery lpon himself and others. Those garments...

LOVE DIVINATIONS. QUAINT AND INTERESTING CUSTOMS PRACTISED OF OLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 19 August 1892
LOVE DIVINA'ITONS. QUAINT AND INTERESIIWI CUSTOMS PRACTISED OF OLD. OME of the love divinations practised by English maidens a few hundred years ago, are very quaint and interesting. Their origin, in many instances, may be traced to the mythology of the Pagans, and beyond, until lost in the nists of antiquity. Not a few, in a modified form, are religiously believed to-day and employed by the superstitious rustics of our old country. In ancient times, St. .Agnes' Eve (January 20) was a night of great importance to girls who desired to know whsom they should marry. The first requirelrent to insure succeso, 0was they should nut eat t o that day. Th'lose who eontoo.mI to it called it: " Pastiog St. Agne?' favt."
