LESSON FROM FRANCE. HOW TO TILL TO THE HILT. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 15 January 1908
LESSON FROM FRANCE. HOW TO TOjL TO THE EOL.T. BIngllsh people may well have been Btartlei by the publication o£ some Hgures founded on this year's harvest shewing the wealth of French sol!, and the equivalent poverty of English. As I read the figures I thought o£ two small village scenes, one- In' the valley of the Xjolre, one In the English Mid lands, that may illustrate, if not ex plain, how -It Is that we in England so yield to France in drawing Its due from the land. The figures were these: 'In addition to being by far the greatest wine-producing country of the world, France is also a large cornpro ducer. Although the annual consump tion of wheat in Prance Is computed at 41.250,000 quarters, she last year pro duced at home no fewer than 44,680.000 quarters, being a surplus beyond all her requirements of 3,430.000 quarters, and this notwithstanding that her popula tion consumes per head as much as 101b. of bread per week, while we In England consume only about 7%lb. per week.

There the wife started an intrigue with, a local mm ledge : he 'broke off ^intrigue. * 'P ? A dispute concerning him occurred between the doctor and his wife. Guillaume finally threw the woman out of his study by force. She re turned with a revolver, and, stand ing in the doorway, shot him. Though mortally wounded, Guil laume managed to stagger to the village inn, where the landlady re marked on his paleness. He parried the question with a joke, saying, ' I have eaten some plums, and find them hard to digest,' and ordered a carriage to take him to the nearest town. ...
IN THE FAR EAST. THE GROWING UNREST. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 15 January 1908
IN THE FAB. EAST. THE GROWING UNREST. Mr Angus Hamilton has some Inter esting speculations aB to what will hap pen In the Far East when China and ( Japan really find themselves, the article | appearing In the third part of the ?'Harmsworth History of the World' (7d.) 'Looking back at the conditions of Anla in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and comparing them with those existing to-day, it will be noticed that as wide a gulf separates Japan from China in the twentieth century as then separated China from the rest of , the Far East. On one side there Is j China, unemotional, and only slightly , irruptive; on the other there is Japan, ' voicing the regeneration of Asia with raucous tones .... THE SPIRIT OF ASIATIC INDEPEN DENCE.

TILLAGE AND SOIL MOISTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 15 January 1908
TXCLAGE AKD_SOIZ. MOISTURE. Tillage (writes an exchange) assists soils in securing and holding water in the following ways:— By opening the surface crust, so that water may enter the soil more freely, and by hastening percolation that the subsoil may receive more water. When the surface crust has been opened by tillage tools, water finds lodgment until it gradually sinks into the soil— a most excellent way of preserving what mlgut oe lost otnerwise. Tigh't-bound soils, with unbroken sur faces, secure no great amount of water, _often not enough for its many needs, 'soils, like the stiff clays, are enabled to secure much more water and to hold it also, If subsolled and autumn ploughed. Indeed, this is a splendid treatment to .give such hinds, although eubsoiling is costly.' '.'.'.'. Of course, tight-bound soils that liave little air space, 'and whose particles are closely pressed together, permit slow descent only to all water passing down ward. This is a condition certainly not desir...

Lord Rosebery, Chancellor.of the Uni versity of London, opened the London Day Training College in Southampton Row on 2nd November.

THE GERMAN SCANDALS. EVIL, AND GOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 15 January 1908
THE CERMAN SCANDALS. EVIL. AND GOOD., -..-,.?.-' The English reader who jiasf ilo}- ipwed the._j-epbrts of Jthe ^trials in Berlin during the last' few days has been divided between a feeling of nausea at certain aspects of the dis closures, bur own legal procedure is so different that, though we pride ourselves on the candid publicity of our courts of justice, we can scarce I ly imagine an action for libel yield ing any similar results in this coun try. At every turn our law of evi dence must have been applied by the presiding Judge to prevent the intro duction of charges, unsupported by sworn evidence, against persons who were not parties to the case. The same discipline must have tarred the greater part of the comments, in ferences and rhetorical embroideries which turned the trial into a politi cal demonstration, and at the same time have precluded the defendant Ifj-om offering evidence on the graver innuendoes, unless he had taken his stand on a plea of justification.

"COME WITHOUT A HOOP." OLD FASHIONED INVITATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 15 January 1908
'COME WITHOUT A HOOF.' OLD FASHIONED INVITATION. 'Come without a hoop written on an 'At Home' card would puzzle Ithe re cipient in these days. It was the legend adopted in tne age of the farthingale by a Duchess of Sutherland, who wanted to increase the holdhtg capacity of her rooms, according to a writer on the in vitation cards of our ancestors In 'The Windsor Magazine.' ; ?:? A curious thing in connection with the hoop was its effect on domestic architec ture. 'When Sir Joshua Reynolds re ? moved to his new house, No. 17 Leices ter square, he sent out a number of in vitations for 'wine anfl light refresh ments;' but wSen he saw the amazing effect of my lady'* farthingale, he had his staircase widened and curved to ad mit the free passage of the most extra vagant.'

BLOCK SIGNALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 15 January 1908
BLOCK SIGNALS. The problem of railway signalling Is likely to be complicated by the evidence given before the Board of Trade inquiry into the Hampstead disaster. One of the witnesses admitted that he had known cases where the block system of signalling had failed to act properly. This has hitherto been regarded by the general public as an infallible system. A railway engineer has explained the reason for the failures to a 'Dally News' representative. 'The block system,' he said, 'is supposed to work thus. On the line is a treadle, a small electrical signaller in connection with the home sjgnal box. A train passing over this treadle sets It working, and in tlie' box a disc drops showing that the line into the station Is clear. Until that disc has dropped the signalman has no right to release tbe home signal from 'danger* or;to let another train. into the station.'. ? -'Cannot the:;. signalman -himself re-. :lea'sette4)sjf4n-the'bpi??;-^:--^' ?-?? \ --Hel.^iili,%)ii;plifly-^lttj''toe'...
