Imagine a woman' of forty wearing a skirt that is 9 inches from tlio ground. Yet it is being done in highest fashion circles at the present time. Suoh a display of, foot anil ankle was, of course, bound to bring an upheaval in boot and shoo fashions in its train. And what on earth do you think lias happened ? Leaders of tlio mode have boldly borrowed from our Russian ally, his baggy, wrinkled boot, with which to step down Bond Street, or the fashionablo paths of Hyde I'ark, and astonish all beholders.

Some soils^ would bo benefited iiioro by tlio application of lime than by tiio application of commercial fer tilisers. - To most of our cultivated trees and plants a sour soil is distasteful. Some of the more common agricultural plants which are injured by au acid coudition of the soil, are spinach, lettuce, beets, cclcry, onion, parsnip, cauliflower, cucumber, ogg plant, cantaloupe, pump kin, asparagus, cabbage, pepper, pea, tobacco, lucerne, clover, barley, wheat, oats, timothy, and Kentucky blue grass. Clover and timothy-two most import ant crops-are quite sensitive to acidity in the soil. There are countless . ex periences where clover "did not stalid well" or "failed to catch" or was "winter killed," until the land was limed. In many sections, clover is re garded as the key-plant t(S the main tenance of fertility. That soil which has clo...

CLEARING BRACKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 April 1915
CLEARING BRACKEN. How to get rid of bracken fern is a question that a correspondent replies to by saying:-"Cutting the bracken is of little use.

Wo find that bruis ing is the effective system with a hard roller inado by the local blacksmith, encircled spirally with angle iron. The process is simply to keep passing this roller, loaded to sufficient weight, over tho brackens as often. ns they show new growth, aud eventually this kills them right oat." "Not cutting them in tho height of tho spring, aud only once in tho year,"' another correspondent writes, "may be 'iseless; but cut them twenty times a year if they need cutting that often; in fact, cut them as often as you can get a hit at them, with the fern hook, so that the sun can shino fair on tho grass to sweeten it, and tho cattle -will help keep them down by treading them down ...
FIVE RULES FOR FORTUNE [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 20 April 1915
FIVE MULES FOR FORTUNE 1. Cultivate nad perfect your ideas. Experiment. The world is eager for something new, which, however Bimple :t may be, will save labor, or expense, or do things better. Let it be more convenient, or promote pleasure-reduce waste. People who handle things in every day use are the natural inventors of better things, and the natural capitalists of to-morrow. Read the 6pleniid advice that Edison gives. I^earn the procedure as to pa tenting in the chief countries,-then secure your own legal monopoly for your rights by becoming o patentee. 2. If that workman or foreman, or your ingenious friend has produced a clever invention ;'ut him on the track of famous and wealthy inventors. Mr. F.

ARSENICAL SPRAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 20 April 1915
ARSENICAL SPRAYS. . ]Jo arsenical sprats injure the soil, ami thereby constitute a danger to the trees? Not as long as grass and oth^r herbage continued to grow under the sprayed trees. L. II. 13ailey. in "J'rin uiplcs of Fruit Growing," says: "With tho action of the rains, ami the falling of tho leaves, most of the arsenic which is applied to trees finally reaches the soil. What then becomes of it? If lime has been used with the spray, the arsenic will l>e insoluble when it fall* upon the soil, ft is pos sible that the organic acids in the soil, and al>o carbouie acid, will dissolve some of the arsenic, but it would be al most surely made immediately insoluble again by combination with Jime or other soil constituents. if soluble ar>cnic is placed on the soil it probably almost immediately goes into insoluble combinations, and remains where it was placed, unless ^lightly washed down by mere mechanical means.
