MONEY IN TEA LEAVES. THOUSANDS MIGHT BE SAVED. A gentleman engaged in the chemi cal trade hints at the money which might be made out of used tea-leaves, whose only employment now, en route to the ashpit, is to keep the dust down when the floor is swept. Expen ded tea leaves are rich in tannin most people know that from experi ence-Chlorophyll, caffeins, and other valuable products, which are not easi ly removed by the ordinary methods of infusion. It is calculated that over 336 mih lion pounds weight of tea-leaves were committedl to the dust-bin in Eng land last year; and taking this as representing ten per cent. of tannin, which is worth 2n 9d per lb., it is clear that money might he gained by its extraction. Even one-fifth of the total of waste leaves, yielding only five per cent. of tannin, would repre sent a value of about .£420,000.

IN THE CLUTCH OF THE "'MOONSHINERS." DODGING DEATH IN THE KEN TUCKY CAVES. Fifty years ago, when I was sta tioned in Louisville, Kentucky, as an officer of the United, States revenue service, my principal duty was to ferret out illegal liquor-makers and raid the illicit stills with which the State was honeycombed, a perilous work which called for more than or dinary courage and detective skill. But it was work in which I revelled ; for I was considered one of the smar test young men in the service, and it gave me just the opportunity I want ed to show the qtuff I was made of and earn rapid promotion. I had been eight months in my new berth when I received orders from my collector to swear in ten deputies, picked men, and start immediately on about as dangerous a mission as any man ever undertook--that of raid ing the secret stills in the Green River Mountains and capturing or killing the men that worked them. Now, the Green River "'Moonshiners" -as these illicit distillers were call...

SUNFLOWER SECRETS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 May 1917
SUNFLOWER SECRETS. Varying from gold to pale yellow, the handsome suntilower stands merely for decorative purposes in British homes. But other countries-Germany, Am erica, and Russia among them-rea lise its economic value, and cultivate the flower for its many other virtues. Excellent oil can be extracted from sunflower seeds, and (;ermany, who has none too much of the former just now, has planted sunflowers along her roadsides for the sole purpose of ob taining the oil, the quality of which is hardly inferior to that of the fam ous olive itself. Again, sunflower seed makes an ex cellent bread; both seeds and" leaves are given to stock, while the stalks can be used for fuel. Bracken is another hardy plant that can he turned to good account. 'Scotch people use it in place of straw, and sometimes for manure. An old-time soap recipe included it among its ingredients, for bracken ashes contain a large percentage of alkali. Old country folk burn bracken, and roll the ashes, sprinkled wit...

HOW WEASELS CARRY EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 24 May 1917
HOW WEASELS CARRY EGGS. -------+---- I have a letter from a friend, foa whose veracity I can vouch in regard to the above, writes a correspondent. His fowlhouse, in which were both nest and china eggs and real eggs, was in a quiet corner near a wood. He could not account for the disap pearance of the eggs, and suspected rats, although he had not seen one about the place. One mo,ning, how ever, after a shower of snow. he no ticed a track which looked as if something had been rolled over it. He followed the trail for about sixty yards, and there under the root of a fallen tree he discovered five nest eggs and a number of real eggs. two of which were intact. From the foot prints in the snow he perceived that a stoat was the depredator. Curious to know how it managed to get the eggs so far, he concealed himself and wat ched. After a long wait the stoat, already assuming his winter dress, appeared and made straight for the fowihouse, in which some new-laid eggs, left on purpose, were awa...

IMPUDENT DEADHEADS. Mr. Hibbert, in "Filty Years of a Londoner's Life" tells some amusing stories about "deadheads' '-cadgers for seats-who worry theatrical man-. agers on the flimsiest of pretexts and acquaintanceships.

"My name may not be familiar to you," said the applicant, "but I venture to remind you that during a long residence in Birmingham I had the distinguished honour of cutting your late revered father's corns.' Hardly less impudent was the gen tleman in evening-dress, accompaniedt by a lady, who handed a card to a West-end acting manager with the re mark that he had been given to uIn derstand that it would procure him two seats. "I'm afraid you've been fooled," was the reply ; "I don't know the gentleman." "But I've brought this lady out. i -I-well, it isn't convenient for me to pay." "Sorry I can't help you," said the manager. "Well-...

"What's the matter, my man ?" he asked. "Are you hurt !" "Yes," wailed Tommy. "How did it happen ?" pursued the old man. Tommy Jones wiped the tears from his eyes and drew himself up. "We were having a naval battle," he explained, "and that fellow over there torpedoed me in the engine room."
