He Lost Her. He had asked her to marry him, ;snd was .waiting' impatiently for an answer. "Will you expect me to keep house'*" she asked. "No, indeed, my love. The servan s will attend to ail that." "You won't ask me to make breau or broil beefsteaks?'" "Certainly not, my angel. We sha-.l have a cook." "And I will not be compelled to pound the wash-board?" "How can you ask such a ques tion?

THE DUAL PURPOSE COW. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914
THE DUAL PURPOSE COW. Mr. Lncicn -A. Sweet, of Fairmont, Minnesota, who edits the "Dairv Re cord," thus records his opinion of the imal-purpose cow:— "Wo are hearing a great deal about iiie dual-purpose cow at the present • line, but kIig is called 'the cow of a h-vAng strain with a milking tenden r:-. ri his is a very nattering name for co*\ in;1, t is noil her yood for beef !-&lt;ir Muter.

Trifles Light As Air. Mrs. Gordon had recently moved into the neighborhood. "I thought I would come and tell you that your James has been fighting with my Edward," said one of the neighbors, one morning as she called at Mrs. Gordon's door, "and settle the matter if I could." "Well, for my part," responded Mrs. Gordon haughtily, "I have no time to enter into any discussion about the children's quarrels. I consider my self above such trifling things." "I'm delighted to hear it," was the reply. "I'll send James over on a stretcher in an hour or two."
DAIRYING. COW INDIVIDUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914
dairying. r.nw INDIVIDUALITY. One great trouble -with dairymen la pen era 1 is the manifest disregard for Individualism. The cows are consider I'd, cared ror, milked and credited as a l-.rd mid not as individuals. Such reasoning cannot produce .great-'re» suits- • •• ....... , . Dairying is a business of individu als, the man and.the cow, not the man an&lt;i a lot of cows.

Her Eyes Upon Him. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914
Her Eyes Upon Him. A well-known writer was present re cently at a dress rehearsal of a com edy played by amateurs. The re hearsal went well, but the hero, B—, seemed rather hard and cold. The novelist sat in a box next to a charm ing woman of middle age. She said, at the end of the third act, "It goes beautifully, doesn't it?" "Beautifully," said the gentleman. "But B doesn't make love to that pretty girl in as ardent a manner as I could wish. His love-making, in fact, strikes me as very tame and spiritless." The woman frowned. "He won't put any more spirit in it while I've got my eye on him, let me tell you," she said. "I'm Mrs. B ." "Pa, what is- a diplomat?" A diplomat, my son, is a man who remembers a lady's birthday, but for g ts her age."

BACK TO THE LAND. r There are t6b 'm'ariy' e"dfeaiJiers'' alnd thinkers," And not enough tillers of soil; There are too many eaters and drinkers Who use up the products of toil; There are too many boosters and boomers, "With manners too easy and bland; We're cursed with too many consum ers. (V , We ought to go back to the land. There are too many getters and tak ers, And not enough men who produce;. There are too many broad rolling acres Untouched and unfilled — out of use; We stick where the grime and the grit is, And the streets with the poor are a-swarm; We're crowded too much in the cities, We ought to go back to the farm. We've got to be workers and plough ers, Who sweat in the fields like true men; We've got to make use of our powers To make the land blossom again. What, me? On a farm? And to stay there? Well, not fQr a bundle -of pelf! I was trying to show you the way there, But I'll stick to the city myself.

Cheaper Food. NEW SOUTH WALES MINISTRY MAKES PROPOSALS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914
Cheaper Food. NJvW SOUTH WAT.ES MINIS TRY MAKES PROPOSALS. A highly ambitious programme is to be submitted to Parliament by the New South Wales .Ministry at the opening of next session. It will include measures dealing with health, bousing, afforestatiou, and fair rents. Another measure will be for the reorganisation of the railways. One of the objects will be to augment the Ministerial power, instead of allowing the whole of the administration to rest with the Commissioners. -The public service will also be reor ganised. In the endeavor to make the food supply cheaper, it is proposed to establish Government slaughter ing houses, and as soon as possible they will be followed by the dis tribution of meat from retail branches. To overcome the high prices of fruit and vegetables, it is proposed to establish irrigation areas near Sydney.

Professional Footballers DISCUSSION AT ASSOCIATION MEETING. ECHUCA CLUB'S POSITION. PRESIDENT MORRISON'S PROPHECY. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914
Professional Footballers DISCUSSION AT ASSOCIA TION MEETING. ECI-IUCA CLUB'S POSITION. PRESIDENT MORRISON'S PROPHECY. Recently the Echuca Football Club openly advertised for half-a dozen football players -at a salary of £2 per week. Scores of- appli cations were received from city players and from several of the ■ iea'ding players in this association. The committee of the Echuca club -'eventually selected three Metro politan ;p'ay ers, not leading lights of the league, but prominent players of junior associations. The salary was not attractive enough for the metropolitan "stars," who can command as~ much as ^10 per week. At the annual meeting- of (he association on Thursday last, one of the oldest de'egates to the association, drew attention to the action of the Echuca club, and made some rather severe comments on the practice. "Go ahead, Echuca" he said in a sarcastic tone ' and "keep on paying the players, and you will soon find that the club will cease to prosper." Mr H. S. Day (...
Grazing Lucerne. UNDESIRABLE EFFECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914
Grazing Lucerne. UNDESIRABLE EFFECTS. Iu its issue of last week a leading Melbourne agricultural journal gives considerable space to what it apparently, deems the advantages of grazing lucerne. The peculiarity of the writing is that it is basedou "experiences at Bainawm and Nan neella," two places where the method is practically undesirable, because freightage and cartage are comparatively easily negotiated matters, and also where it is de sirable to make hay. The writer holds that the advantages of mow ing' lucerne are far in excess of grazing, and the reasous are not only numerous, but absolute. If the grazing of a - crop such as lucerne is practised at all it should only be the rule where the areas are of very few acres extent, other wise the waste experienced is out of all proportion to the amount of feed-obtained. These remarks are not intended to be applied to places situated remotely -from railway stations, where the carting is great; or where no market is offering, even then...

Cost of Living. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914
Cost of Living. 'fli* "Age" says that the increas ing cost of living is causing much anxiety to housekeepers all over the world. We have to face the fact that the happy period of low prices which began • about 1 ST3 came to an end a few years ago, and that another similar period will not pro bably begin for many years. Prices are rising in every country, and it is expected that they will continue to rise. Economists say that .the increased cost of the necessaries of life is due to many causes; the chief of them is the fact that more gold is now extracted from mines, and consequently sovereigns are more common, and each sovereign car. purchase less than it used to five or teu or fifteen years ago: This and other minor causes are beyond the power of the housekeeper to con trol. All over Europe women have for some years bewailed the cost of liviug, and in different places have assigned it to various trivial causes. In Paris, for instance, the yearly increase in prices is said to be due...

TO PREVENT COLLISIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 8 May 1914
TO PREVENT COLLISIONS. In consequence of the frequency of railway collisons in various parts of the world recently, the directors of the Western (State) Railway, which forms part of the Newhaven-Dieppe route to London, are conducting a series of experiments with a new de vice which, it is hoped, will render it impossible for engine-drivers unwit tingly to run past signal?. The new apparatus, which, from its shape, is known as the "crocodile," is placed between the rails near the dis tance signals, and is so arranged that when the train passes over it con nection is made with the engine in such a way that a powerful siren on the engine at once warns the driver that the signal, although, perhaps, in visible through fog, is against him.
