When Sale Sets Sail. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 5 June 1914
When Sale Sets Sail. Two rows in one morning with her bei tor-half had decided Mrs. Meggin. "There, that'll do it !" she mur mured to herself, as she surveyed the crudely-pointed signboard in her cottage garden. "I'll see if lie won't work ! Hanging on to mo for my bit o' cottuge !" A party of students from a neigh bouring collegc strolled past in the afternoon, and laughed uproariously when they read the little sign, "For Sail." Mrs. Megtgin was stolidly cleaning her windows, and never east an eye at the little gathering. "HI, old woman," called out one sallow-looking youth, "when does this house sail ?" "Whenever the man comes along thai can raise the wind !" tersely answered the old dame, calmly get? ting on with her work.

During that tlmo he has been away following his exciting calling of special correspondent, or commis sioner, for a famous paper.

Lifting Power in Growing Plants. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 5 June 1914
Lifting Power in Growing Plants. The rapidity with which drooping loaves revive under a shower shows tho extraordinary quickness xrtth "which plant roots tako up water and drive it through tho stem to the uppermost twigs and leaves. A simple waf of discovering how rapid ly this takes place is by watering a white iris with a blue solution. In a few hours it6 white flowers will l>e streaked with blue. The power exerted by the roots and stems of growing trees is almost incredible. The roots of a young oak aro known to have lifted a block of granite weighing Gi tons. The lifting began in the fifth year of tho tree's growth, and withing the next soven years tho stone was raised more than eight inches. This remarkable feat lms been exceeded by the American swamp cypress, which throws out immense but tresses around its stem. A barge : loaded with bricks was wrecked on , one of these buttresses in the Okla wuha river, and six years Inter the growth of the tree had liftc1 the wreck above ...

A; Tango in the Heavens. STARS WHICH WALTZ INTO SPACE. To the great regret (says the London "Dally News") of a cheer ing. -crowd of holiday "juvenile*, Professor Turner delivered the last of his "Christmas lectures" at the Royal, Institution. At the .end of his' chat-full of humour and very skilfully wrapped up instruction-he hade his boy - and girl friends adieu in a nice little speech and wished them ^all a HappyNew Year. The professor and his youn# friends had iust returned somewhat breath less * and au'ed, from nn. exciting trip amid the .whirling .atoms of the Milky Way, a rldo on ? the shaggy back of Ursa Major, and a most enchanting . roundabout in tho cir cus of the -Zodiac.

THE DAIRY ONE OF THE EFFECTS OF THE COW-TESTING ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 5 June 1914
THE DAIRY ONEi OF THE KFFKCTS OF THE COW-TESTING ASSOCIATION. It'takes lime to see a thing on all v its. shies ^incl especially to test its; ! results; It is &o with? these cow-test ing: associations.' ^ A Wisconsin sub-, scriher .writing us Tecently said that one of the most important efTccts 01 cow-testing .was that it tests out th&lt; cow owner, as well as the cow. "Thai * is the veason," he said, "why yot see so.mauy farmers unwilling to on 'gage in it. They are afraid of thenv selves as well as their cows." That's a pretty sharp criticism, but we ar&lt; confident it is a true: one in mauj. cases. There is such a 'lot of farm v ors; keepiug cows who havo no pride ! .in tlieir businoss; >who arc willing, tc do business k with5;a lot of inferior, money-losing cows, v. provided:; thej .thought their neighbours did. not I knpwi it, that it is hard to. react I. them by any appeal to sound busi ness principles. - .

A Plant-Food Percolator. * Obtain * two butter tuba and boro a largo number 'of i-in, holes in tbo bottom of one, then covor tho perforated. part with a piece of fine brass gauzo (lrig. 1), tacking the gauzo well at tho corners. Tho other tub should bo fitted with a faucet of sonie kind-a wood faucet, costing about 3d, will answer tho purpose. Put the first tub on top of the other with two narrow strips between them (Fig. 2). Fill the tub, about throe-fourths full, with well packed horse manure, and pour water on it until it is, well soaked. When the water has per colated through into . the lower tub, it is ready to use on-house and garden plants and is. better than plain water, as it adds both fer tilizer and moisture.
Then the Judge Laughed. HUMOURS OF THE LAW COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 5 June 1914
Then the Judge Laughed. HUMOURS OF THE LAW COURTS. Wonderful indeed is iho oratory of counsel at times, but one would have somo difficulty, perhaps, in finding ft moro amusing example of MghfaUilin legal latiguago than the following, which is quoted from "Law and Laughter" . " ' Slander, gentlemen,' said the learned counsel, in a libel action, ' like a boa-constrictor of gigantic size and immeasurable proportions, wraps (he coil of its unwieldy body about its unfortunalo victim, and, heedless of the shrieks of agony that come from the utmost depths of its victim's soul, loud and reverbe rating as the night thunder that , rolls in the heavens, it finally breads its unlucky neck upon the iron wheel of public opinion ; forcing him to desperation, then to madness, and finally crushing him in the hideous jaws of mortal death.' " No less amusing was tho address of the American Judgo Itodgers to a prisoner who had been convicted in his court in Louisiana. " Pri soner. stand up !" he said. ...
Incombustible Linoleum. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 5 June 1914
Incombustible Linoleum. The manufacture of incombustible linoleum, or, to speak moro accu rately, of linoleum that burns with difficulty, has been n goal long aimed at by linoleum factories. The at tempts previously made have boon bnecd on tho plan of adding incom bustible matter, such as asbestos or ammonium salts, to the mass during tho process of fabrication. Far more promising is a new scheme, described in ''Technische Monatshefte," in w'hich magnesium carbonate is added to the mass. All the carbonates have the property of giving off carbon dioxide when heated at high temperatures. This, as is well known, is a veiy heavy gas, which does not rise, but creeps along the floor. For this reason in case of a fire it would tend to cut oft the supply* of air from the lino leum. Magnesium carbonate is cho sen because it breaks up at lower temperatures than any other car bonate. The principal involved is, of course, one commonly used in the manufacture of chemical fire extin guishers. Owi...

A Huge Stadium. Like nothing' else more than the Roman Colosseum is the huge sta dium contemplated tor the College of Now York. This is the gift of Adolph Lowisolm, a copper million aire, and is designed to he a cre dit mot only to the college, but also to the great city itself. The stadium will be 400ft. long and 3«i0ft. broad, and the great tiers of seats -will take ; up half an ellipse, like the Iioman .Colosseum.

CHAPTER XXXIX.

A man Btoppod from u cross passage, tapped Yolbortk cm tho shoulder, and drew hltn to one side. Dick waited in some alarm, whilo the two hold a brief and whispered conversation.

CHAPTER XLI. AT THE MIDNIGHT HOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 5 June 1914
CHAPTER XLI. A.T THE MIDNIGHT HOUR. Almost instantly the door swung gently open, but the Russian, in stead of striking, receded a little in amazement. And both ho and Dick exclaimed sharply, for thej saw be fore thom the figuro of a woman muf fled from head .to feet in a blacks cloak. This Bhe parted at tho top;!1 revealing the lovely face of Lucille. Montejo. , . . . "Dick !" she whispered, eagerly. . "Lucille; you 'here I"" * ho replied;.

They throbbed unceasingly through his brain when be sat down on tho bench, with his back to tho wall, and tried to rea lize what it all meant. At the time of his eapturo bo had anticipated the worst, but somehow it was different now, with tho reality staring- him in tho face. He had heard the sontenco and he shrank from death with hor ror and rebellion. He wns not a coward, but it seem ed to him bitterly bard to dio juBt when the future had turned bright. Ho had not valued life very much in the past, but it was a thing to bo prized with Lucille to share it. And to lose her !
