LIME. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 17 November 1916
LIME. In improving and reclaiming farm . lands, Uio use of lime must always j be kept in mind, bccause.it plays sucli j an important part in the upbuilding ? process. I In the reduction of light, sticky I clays to a well-granulated condition, I the effect of generous applications of . lime are quite noticeable in that the fine unmanageable clay particles are drawn together into crumbs or gran-' ules. j Lime sweetens sour soils and per mits a belter growth of the legumin-1 ous green manure crops so much needed to supply humus. An increase in humus means that the soils can be more easily drained, will absorb more moisture, and, best of all, will pro duce more crop. "Do you think there is anything re markable in love at lirst sight?' asked ' the romantic youth. "Not at all," answered the cynic. "It's when people have been looking at each other for four or five years that it becomes remarkable!"

Fat Ladies! Why Not Be Stylish? Ladies cannot afford to be stout, as fat people not only appear to look older than tliey are, but have a much coarser appearance than their thin friends, so if you are putting on flesh at a rate that dismays you, here is a way by which you may regain your lost stylish slenderness.

How to be Efficient. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 17 November 1916
How to be Efficient. Wlien we talk of success or a suc cessful life we are tempted to analyse the qualities that enter into this suc cess. The most important of these qualities, to my mind, are courage, energy, persistence, initiative and character. Courage is the quality that sustains a man's heart in tack ling difficulty. It makes him stand up Under the burden and heat of tlie day, and encounter each new difficulty with zest and with a determination to over come it. Energy is the steam of the boiler, the driving power. It enables a man to keep going and not flag in his energy. It is that peculiar, inde finable power in a man that keeps him going. Persistence is the bulldog quality of tenacity, the ability to liang on. That quality that says, "Never say die." It is the quality that in sures a man against being baffled by difficulties; what wo sometimes call "sand" or "grit." Initiative is the power to plan, and to administer. It is the power that distinguishes the master from the s...

Those Tearful Deer. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 17 November 1916
Those Tearful Deer. By Wm. North. His lordship's doer, nor any other, never alied tears. . Not a tear. The nymph in ]\Iarvell's poem who an nounced her intention of bottling those limpid signs ot woe couldn't do it. What she collected, if she at tempted to carry out her proposal, was something finite different. Some little distance below the eye ot the members of the deer family ! there is a scent gland which exudes a sticky, transparent fluid, having in the case of deer a musky odor. An drew JIarvell, a good out-of-doors man-read his poems on garden mat ter.,-even if he had to stick close to his Parliamentary duties, mistook it for a tear, as thousands of people had done before him, but he, you re member, likened it to gum. Gilbert White more than a hundred years later was in some doubt about those tears. The matter puzzled him. j though one specimen he had the chance of examining was so very "whiffy" that he did not carry his in vestigations far. lie did point out. i however, and ...

DO HOUSE FLIES HIBERNATE [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 17 November 1916
DO HOUSE FLIES HIBERNATE Dr. Fletcher, Director of the Nat ural History Collections (British Mu seum), South Kensington, states that considerable attention has been given in the Entomological Department to the problem of the hibernation of the house-fly. A very large number of hi bernating and other flies found in houses in the winter have been sent to the Museum. Very few so far re ceived are true house-flies, and none found in a hibernating condition. The vast majority of the flies found hiber nating proved to belong to a species (Pollenia rudis), not unlike the house fly, and frequently mistaken for it. Thi3 species lives out o£ doors in the summer, and only enters houses at tl(e approach of cold weather in order to find shelter and to hibernate. Its mode of life is different from that of the house-fly, and there is no reason to apprehend any danger to health owing to its presence in the liouso. Whilo the evidence obtained gives no support to the view that house-flies usually hib...
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. For the Economical Housewife. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 17 November 1916
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. For the Economical Housewife. Vinegar rubbed over raw meat makes it tender. Skim-milk is excellent for washing floor tiles, and gives -tliem a much better appearance than soapy water does. Bread should not be eaten the day it is baked. If kept for a day it cuts more economically and is also more digestible. Sheets of newspaper spread be tween wooden boards and the carpet are most effectual in Hc-cp'ng moths out of a carpet. To clean an oak bedstead boil some linseed oil, apply a little with a dry cloth, and rub the wood thoroughly, polishing with a duster. Scorch-marks, unless very bad, can be removed from linen by cutting an onion in half and rubbing the scorch ed part with it. Then soak in cold water, and tile marks will soon disap I pear. . Cayenne pepper is excellent to rid cupboards of mice. The floor should be gone over carefully, and each hole stopped up with a piece of rag dipped in water, and then in cayenne pepper Next time a piece is torn from one of the ...

"I came out in chase j I mistook you " "But this is dreadfully serious," said the vicar hurriedly; "did he cross the road?" "I don't know." They were both nonplussed, and too agitated to formulate any plan ol' action at first. "Did you meet anyone on the road?" asked Franklin. "No. I hare just come from Holt hurst, where 1 have been sitting, up with a sick man, and was hurrying home to bed." "I'm afraid he's got clean away again," said Franklin.

ENGINE-WHISTLES. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 17 November 1916
ENGINE-WHISTLES. Accidents have, over and over again, set the busy brains of inventors work ing on new ideas. It was not until four years had elapsed from the time George Stephenson startled the world with his little steam engine "Roclcet," which could travel at the then un dreamt-of rate of thirty-five miles an hour, that engines were fitted with whistles. On May 4, 1S33, a market cart con taining 501b. of butter. and 9G0 eggs was passing over a level-crossing be tween Bagworth and Thornton, two Leicestershire stations on the Midland Railway, when an engine-"Samson" -driven by Driver Weatherburn, ran into it and scattered the produce far and wide. This was regarded as such a serious matter that Stephenson himself was consulted about it. A meeting of di rectors discussed it, and at last it was suggested that a whistle blown by steam should be fitted to engines. A musical-instrument maker of Leices ter made a trumpet shaped like a huntsman's horn, 18in. long and Gin. in diameter at t...
