A Negro Made White" by Bleaching." [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 25 September 1908

Negro Made White" Bleaching." For several days Parisians, (says the correspondent of the " Stand dard"), have had the opportunity of ; studying a negro who, if not altoge ther -white, is -partly so. Sam J. comes from Philadelphia, and his story shows that it is not the Ethio pian alone who is unable to change his skin. He came over to Paris a fey years ago to study art. By sonic fault or other, he soon had the idea fixed in his mind that there was no line-looking, aesthetically beautiful man or woman who had not a white skin. When he next visited Amcrica his chief thuoght was to have his col our -changed, and lie made a bargain with some student of radiography to pay so much on condition that his skin should be be made perfectly .white. The man was able to show that the application of a certain radio graphic lantern 'bleached the skin, and so the operation was continued ^o the end.

FARM AND FIELD Smut in Grain. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 25 September 1908

FARM AND FIELD { Smut in Gr^iin* During recent years many of tho Canadian,, farmers have ^ustafnert heavy losses from stinking sm^t in their wheat crops. A circular of inquiry \stia sent to about 600 of the principal grain 'growers throughout the province, in or» der that some idea might be arrived at as to the preventive methods.they had been adopting" and why they Were not more successful. The replies to tho circulars showed that in 1005 the bill .smut had been very abundant, but by no means general In the crops; many farms were clear of it, especially whero tho practice of bluestonlng had been fol lowed for a number of years and strong seed had been used. There appears to have been little difference between tho crops on summer fallow, stubble, and breaking so far as smut was concerned. In many fields, it was very apparent that the portions sown earliest wero most smutty.. It_ was also observable that-in cases where the seed Was sown deeply there was a great deal of smut.

In. the North of Alaska it is always day from May to August, but from the middle of Novem ber to the end of January the sun is never once above the horizon and the .temperature Is at all times Arctic.

HISTORY OF THE POTATO. INTERESTING EXPERIMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 2 October 1908

HISTORY OF THE .POTATO. INTERESTING EXPERIMENTS. It is a curious fact that our cult!* vated potato,'of which Messrs. Sutton, of Reading, England, recently exhibited no fewer than 400 distinct varieties at the Royal Horticultural Society'© Hall, is a mystery so far as its origin is con cerned. A study of the history of its first Introduction into Great Britain ehovys (writes the English "Journal of Horticulture") that for a very long period previously it must have served as a cultivated food plant in South America, where the original wild plants undoubtedly grew, arid where several wild species still exist. None of these wild species, however, agree sufficiently with the specific characters o£ Solanum tubeVosum, i.e., the potato of commerce, to be accepted as-the probable progeni tor, and most of them differ, so far that they are undoubtedly ineligible. The terrible and sudden advent of tho potato disease in the forties of last cen tury led to research with the object of discovering:...
