PROTECTING WHEAT CROPS FROM WEEVIL. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
PIROTEGTINC 'WHEAT CROPS FROJf. WEEVIL Farmers who desire to store their grain have to look out for weevil. This pest, wvhicliisso'4reat an enemy to stored grain,. has now become cosmopolitan, having been distributed by commerce to all parts of the world, no insects being more easily carried from one land to another, since they breed continuously for years in the. same grain, and are unknowingly transported whlen in an immature state in the kernels. The female punctures the grain, and then in serts an egg, ~from w'hich is hatched a larva that devours the mealy in~terior, and under goes its transformation within the hull. The simplest, most effective and inex pensive remedy for this and all other in sects tha·t affect stored wheat and other cereals is bisulphide of carbon, a colorless liquid, with a -strong, diisagreeable odor, which, however, soon passes away. It vaporises abundantly at ordinary tempera tures, but.it must be specially noted that it is highly inflammable, and is a po...

THE INDISCRETION OF REV. PAUL WATT, BY 1. S. WARREN BELL. [COPYRIGOHT.]I "I should leave it in consols, Paul, I should really !" murmhured the rector's wife. "They're safe, you know." "Bu3t think of the miserable interest !" cried the rector of Longwash, which is a hamlet.you have never heard of, in a re mote part of the Lincolnshire coast. "Con sols will never go up again ! I shall rein vest the money." "Well, dear, mind you get sound advice," said 3Mrs; Watt. "You can't'always trusat these lawyers and stock brokers. Get a friend who akiows about these tlhings to advise you." "I'm going to," said Mr. Watt. "I in tend to get the best advice to be had.in England." "Dear me! I .didn't know you knew anyone who was anything at all in the financial world," said Mrs. Watt. "I know one man," said the rector. '"At least, I did kntow him." And he laughed.

"CAT-AS-CAT-CAN." [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
."CAT-AS-CAT-GAN." A "Manchester Guardian" correspondent has been studying wrestling under primi tive conditions. . We' have at home (he writes), a Persian kitten and an Iridh terrier pup, both about four ihontlhs old. Not having any brothers or sisters to romp with, Paddy makes shift with the cat. Being more agile than he, she has developed a number of "thiows", and "catches" quite in the professional manner. Usually they begin in the Cumberland style, her forepaws round his shoaulders, but after some preliminary swaying they pass to tIhe Lancashire or--"catch-as- atch can" style. The pup tries the "crossbut tock," with which he often, brings .his op ponent to the ground. But once on the grounid, she wriggles over and puts the "half nelson" on him, with one liaw round his neck. When lhe breaks away she leaps round and brings him down with a combined "neck-and-leg hold" in the Japanese way. The last stage is the-Grmeco-Roman struggle on the floor, in which ear biting plays a part. T...
POTATO SPRAYING. THE BURGUNDY MIXTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
POTATO SPRAPtC1-. THE BURGUNDY MIXTURE. Up to the present the most· successful method of attacking potato blight in Aus tralia has been the use of Bordeaux mix ture, the spray compourided of sulphate of copper and lime. Experience in some parts of Ireland has showvn the superiority of Burgundy mixture, in which washing soda replaces the lime, and the following ex tracts are taken from a leafleat published by the Department of Tedhnical Instruc tion for Ireland. Tests spread over five years showed that while the use of Bor deaux mnixture gave an average increase of 34 cwt. per acre over the. umnsprayed, the use of Burgundy resulted in an increase of 50 cwt., and in each of the five years the Burgundy was the more effective, while in other cases the balance has been slightl.v in favor of Bordeaux. Burgundy mixture is 'made up of 2 lb. sulphate of copper, of 08 per cent, purity, 2½ lb. washing soda, of 98 per cent. purity. and 10 gallons clean water. In many cases farmers use a barrel ...

TO ENCOURAGE WALKING. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
TO ENCOURA(E WALKINC. The Bishop of Binminghamn, whose offer. to give a £10 cup for a walking competi tion has been accepted by the Birningham Atlhletic Association, told an "Express" representative that his idea was to popu larise healthy walking. "Many people are giving up walking," he said, "and are losing both mental and physical energy in consequence. It is not riven to everyone to be an ath lete, but people can be good- walkers. \' aiking promotes health, clears the brain, and is good for the body. People should walk with a purpose. I do not suggest any particular distance for the contest, but I should try to get as pretty country as possible, with hill and dale. I do not want competitors to feel that they are on a track all the time. Persorially, I should think a course of albout 30 miles would be a good one. I think that the walk should be a test of endurance as wel as pace."

THE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOR PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914

This expedi tion, our rcaders are aware, recently lefi Capetowvn and has forged its way up to the Zwmbesi over some of the roughest roads which a motor car has ever traversed. There is a "Sphere" commissioner on board the ear, and some of his pictures were given in last week's issue. During the journey north the party visited one of the Kimberley diamond mines, and its im pressions are not without interest at the present moment, when the whole South African Union is bending its efforts to solve one of the most diflicult labor prob lems it has had to face. The party wa.s first shown one of the compounds in which thie' native boys live during the months :they are at work. Judging from their appearance the motor car pa...
THE CRESWICK PLANTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
THE CRESWIOK PLANTATIONS. Adjoining the town of .Creswick, an important and su6cessful attempt at refforestat'ion on an extensive scale is being carried out by the Depart ment of State Forests. The coun try on ,which valuable pine forests have now been established was. always marked by poor soil, timbered mainly wvith. stringy bark. Mining operations on a - mammoth scale led to the rapid denudation of the original trees, and left the inferior land in a worse condition ·than ever. The area now under the control of the Forestry de partment embraces about 15,000 acres, of which 5000 acres are so poorly timbered as to.require reafforestation. The balance of the forest reserve contains a sufficient proportion of original eucalypts to justify its being devoted to their conservation. Of the 5000 acres that will ultimately be devoted to the growing of coniferous trees existing plantations already account for 700 acres, and the area will be steadily in creased as opportunity offers. As our i...
HAS DISCOVERY ENDED? [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
.HAS DISCOVERY ENDED? SWith the finding of a. vast stretch of land within the Arctic circle to the north of Siberia comes the announcement that this marks the last great discovei'y of new lapd. It is true that some years ago a very belligerent gentleman was credited with tears because there were no more worlds to conquer, and that since his day such incidents as the discovery of North, and South America, and other places, "have transpired. However, it loloks as though the geographers really were right this time, . for however much wve explore the little known wilds of Africa, Southl America, Asia 'and Australia, our increasing know ledge of those places cannot enlarge the. boundary line that separates thle land from tIle sea. Jules Verne was a scientific man, and many regard his fiction stories of sub Smarine and aerial flight--wvhich at the time they :were published seemed wild dreams as a serious prediction of what he be lieved would be accomplished. As a mat ter of fact, he did l...
THE DANGERS OF SENTIMENTALITY [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
THE DANCERS OF SENTIMENTALITY The growing sentimentality of England is a curse to Ireland, and if some sturdy reaction does not soon set in, .may prove of considerable danger to England herself. In the pages of the London Post Oflice Directory there are columns and columns of close type the addresses of ameliorative societies whose spheres embrace not only both sexes of humanity and all ages from the cradle to the grave, but all sorts of animals, birds and fishes, until there is nothing, except perhaps the cabbage and cauliflower, which escapes the sentimental and humane consideration of some band of devoted workers or guinea-paying sub scribers. Mr. C. S. Loch, the secretary of the Charity Organisation Society, knows better than anyone how charity runs riot in England, and how it is breeding a large class who live on it. If the l)ublin worker once gets the idea that the sympathy of England will supply him with just as much and just as good food as he can earn by the sweat of his br...
