Then ho asked: "Mebbe not-mebüe not! But I don't remember speaking to you. When was it?" "Last week." "That explains it. I'd forgotten meeting you," was the tramp's quiet retort.

DAIRYING. DAIRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 29 July 1911
D A I R Y I N G. DAIRY NOTES. With a good dairy bull at the head of the dalry herd, rapid Improvement can be made by selecting and rearing the calves from the best milkers, at the same time culling out those cows whose butter records ha vu not proved satisfactory. In this respect no one can say with certainty, "This is the best and that is the worst cow in my herd," unless he has a record of this quantity and quality of the milk dur- ing a whole milking: season. Complaints are frequently heard that dairying does not pay. The rea- son for this condition of affairs is as patent, and may be summed up in a single sentence. Too ninny so-called dairymen are guided by prejudice more than by reason. Just as soon as men select cowa as they select other animals uncí machines, and then feed and handle them with half the dis- cretion tiley feed and handle horses, then, and not till then, wJIJ dairying become profitable.

CHAPTER XVII. The Packing of the Trunk. Evelyn's statement that Amos Uunce had gone to Selbridge had an Immediate effect upon Rolllt. With bluster and oauis ho had demanded to know what had become of him. but the answer caused him to stand still suddenly, and his mouth fell open for a moment.
