Not Her Sort. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
Not Her Sort. After he had fallen upon his knees and kissed her hand she said: "Before I answer 'Yes' or 'No,' there are some things I would like to ask you. Do you ever drink or gamble?" "No," he eagerly replied. "I do not know what the taste of liquor is; I have never defiled my lips with to bacco. I have never uttered a profane word in my life. I have never even played bridge where a prize was at stake." She looked at him thoughtfully for a moment, drew a long sigh, and then asked: "Have you ever broken a woman's heart?" "Ah, how can you ask me that?" he almost reproachfully answered. "If I had ever spoken words of love to another I would not deem myself worthy to touch the hem of your gar ment. I have never cared for anyone but you. I have never kissed any wo man except my mother. I have never given any girl cause to utter one sor rowful sigh. Yours is the first dear, soft little hand that I have ever held in my own. Never before to-night have I looked into any girl's eyes as I ...

Wasted Economy. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
Wasted Economy. A tourist was stranded in Norway with only enough money in his pocket to pay his passage back to England. He thought the matter over, and came to the conclusion that he would buy the ticket, and that as a sea-trip only lasted a couple of days he yould go without food that length of time. He realised that if he stayed in Norway till his money was spent he would never be able to get back home. So he went on board the steamer and bought his ticket. He closed his ears to the sound of the luncheon bell, and when dinner-time came, and a fellow passenger asked him to accompany him to the diniug-room, he politely de clined on the ground that he- felt somewhat unwell. The next morning he skipped break fast by getting up late, and at lunch time he kept to his room. At dinner time that evening, however, he was so hungry that he could have eaten a pair of shoes. "I am going to eat," he said, "even if I am thrown overboard afterwards. I might as well be drowned as starved tc deat...
JOPKINS' DREADFUL MISTAKE. A Little Joke Which Failed. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
JOPKINS' DBEADFUL MISTAKE. | A Little Joke Which Failed. Jopkins had read somewhere that if a woman got hold of a newspaper with a clipping cut out of it she would never rest until she had pro cured a complete paper and read the missing item. This struck Jopkins as a very shrewd and Machiavellian plan of exposing this well-known weakness of lovely woman and he resolved to put it into practice. So that night when he went home from the office there ostentatiously protruded from his coat pocket the day's paper, from which he had neat ly cut a paragraph referring to the rings of Jupiter or some such matter. He threw the paper to one side in a careless way, and after supper not ed with an unholy glee that Mrs. Jop kins had secured it and was running her eye over the bargain ads., and working her way, after the manner of her sex, through the personals, marriage notices, and locals, back to the telegraphic dispatches. Presently Jopkins observed a sud den and suspicious frown overcast her f...
LACK OF SYSTEM ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
LACK OF SYSTEM ON THE FARM. When we stop and look around, we are not surprised that there are so many farmers who are discontented, who have spent so many unprofitable years. There are so many of them robbers of the soil's fertility, and rob bers mostly come to grief, sooner or later. A man can't go on cropping his land year after year, and hauling the crop to market, without selling his land, too. And when both his land and his crop have gone, then—why, then he is discontented. "Farming dcn't pay."
SHE LOST HER HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
SHE LOST HER HATE. At the Brighton motor races happily the most tragic incident connected with tiio racei themselves was the loss of 'a lady driver's back liaiv. It seems this particular hair had been greatly admired when attached to the head of .the fair wearer. It was of chestnut hue, and finely braided. As the comely owner speeded on her lightning way to tho .winning post, her tresses suddenly broke loose. She could not stop at that critical time and so lost her hair. But she won the race. "William," she said gently, and yet in accents of reproof, you remember that I gave you several lottcrs to mail last week, don't you?" "V—yes; T remember it." "Hul this is (ho first time you have remembered it since I gave them to you, isn't it?" "].„j must confess it is."How do you know?"

Held to What He Had. There is a young physician who has never been able to smoke a cigar. "Just one poisons me," says the youth ful doctor. Recently the doctor was invited to a large dinner party. When the wo men had left the table cigars were accepted by all the men except the physician. Seeing his friend refuse the cigar, the host in astonishment ex claimed: : "What! not smoking? My dear fel low, you lose half your dinner!" "Yes, I know I do," meekly replied the doctor, "but if I smoked one I should lose the whole of it!"

"Gi\:o mo the best, one." "AVoU, wo have one by Gounod, Liszt-, Luzzi, Mascagni, Millard, Chorubini, and Dulcken — any ono is good." . • "Gosh," said the customer, "I-didn't know there was so many. Give me Jerry Scene's." Cherubini's was lianded him: but about noon he camo back, dissatisfied. "This is no good on earth,-" he said. "I can't make head nor tail to the tunc." Gounod's "Ave Maria" was then given him; but three o'clock brought him back again. "It wasn't 'Ave Maria' at all I want ed," he explained. "It was 'Sweet Marie.'''

Never mind them, little skirt, Who your character would hurt. From the way you shrink and shrink, You're quite timid, I should think. —"Judge," New York. I want to warn meat-eaters against a cunning conspiracy to convert them into vegetarians. A man (whom I have since discovered to be a notori ous nut-eater) lured me into a strange restaurant yesterday morning, and set before me something that looked like a mutton cutlet. I cannot tefl exactly what first aroused my sus picions, but suddenly approaching the cutlet from behind I tore off its false frill, and discovered it to be some nuts and potatoes in disguise. Then I saw uirough the whole game at once. Some desperate band of vegetarians are sitting up at nights training bananas to look like pork sausages, and teach , ing innocent little walnuts to go about masquerading as deville...
WHY SILAGE IS ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
WHY SILAGE IS ESSENTIAL. There are several reasons for the popularity of silage. More feed can be stored in a given space in the form of silage than in the form of fodder or hay. There is a smaller loss of food ma terial when a crop is made into silage than when cured as fodder or hay. Corn silage is a more efficient feed than corn fodder. An acre of corn can be placed in the silo at less cost than the same area can be husked and shredded. Crops can be put in the silo dur ing weather that could not be util ised in making hay or curing fodder. More stock can be kept on a given area of land when silage is the basis of the ration. There is less waste in feeding silage than in feeding fodder. Good silage properly fed is all consumed. Silage is very palatable. Silage, like other succulent feeds, lias a beneficial effect upon the diges tive organs. Silage is the best and cheapest form in which a succulent feed can be pro vided for winter use. Silage can be used for supplement ing pastures...

A.— WHOLESOME bracing AND refreshing Weak Backs. Backache is really kidney ache; the ache comes from the kidneys, which lie just bvneath the small of the back.

FARM IMPLEMENTS. How to Run a Reaper. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
FARM IMPLEMENTS. j How to Run a Reaper. i Witli the modern binder, and in a moderately even crop, there should be practically no waste. Much un necessary waste is occasioned by not giving the machine the right amount of tilt. Many binder experts argue that the machine should be run quite level—that is to say, the knife bar should not be tilted in any way, but the whole machine should be horizon tal, their argument being that the bear ings will run more easily owing chiefly to their parts getting more perfectly lubricated. Now, while it must be admitted that there is a certain amount of reason in this, it neverthe less cannot be followed to the letter. The practical driver knows from ex perience that to run the binder abso lutely level means a bad-shaped sheaf with an enormous amount of waste, which is greatly increased if there is a slight head breeze, or if the horses should get 011 a little extra pace.

FARM JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
FARM JOTTINGS. The "discipline of the farm" is the asset of the farm boy that marks him * through later life. The endless round i of planting and harvesting, the daily care of animals, the regular toil of which there is no cessation, to him so often a dull routine, form altogether an inestimable training in systematic hab its and thoughts that accounts for his superior achievement in the industries, commerce, and statemansliip in later life. The real opportunity for satisfac tory living in farming comes not so much from the nature of the work as from the fact that the farm is a busi ness and a home, intricately interwo ven. Life and work united, which is the natural thing. It is much easier to maintain soil in a satisfactory condition of efficiency by crop rotation and the application of artificial manures than to restore it after it has once been impoverished by the loss of fertilising constituents. In pasturing lucerne it must not be over-stocked, and the animals will in jure the ...

TO GET GOOD POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 1 May 1914
TO GET GOOD POTATOES. A piece of old pasture is fine soil for potatoes. The better the turf, the better the crop. A clover sod is about the best. Put a good team on the plough and set the share deep down. Potatoes need a loose, deep-set bed. It is a leg-weary business to tramp back and forth across ploughed ground all day; and yet this is the price of good potatoes. Take your time to it, and be thorough. You will save time in the long run. The more harrowing the less cultivating. Get the seed well down. It may not come up so soon, but when it does come it will shoot ahead fast. A four inch covering is about right.
