TURNIPS FOR CATTLE. 1 In using those roots lor cattle, it is ii practioo. hi ninny jiai ts of the country to give.them.uncut in sheds, yards iu;'J fields. The plan is to bo strongly condemned for tho following reasons . (1); Because tlioYe is a dangor fi eaus : ing choking; (2) the plan is irastd'ui ; (3) the roots are not used to best ad vantage, lis they should sweeten other diet, such as straw and inferior hay. If is a common belief that roots given uu cut are-not- liable to choke, but tlu-y cannot be really, snloly served, milt is properly pulped or cut. When cattle are fed on ivliolo roots, it is tho lust piece that is liable to do the mischief, especially if it b'o the neck; of the ro >t.

BONE MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 April 1915
BONE MANURES. There lias been ,1 disposition on the part of ag-ieultural analysts anil pro fessors to depreciate the fertilising value of dissolved l>one mainires, and to express the opinion that mixtures of superphosphate of lime wit!) .1 little sulphate of ammonia or other nitrogen ous material could be defended on to produce oqually good results at a less cost. Greater experience, however, has shown that the old.-fasliioned prefer ence of many farmers, practical and in telligentmen, for a bone manure is not without its justification. A greater knowledge of. the action of. bacteria toadies 11s that these useful organisms ?llourish best who'n there is a Niipply of organic substances in the soil, and it is this organic character of bone manures which makes them more valuable than simple mineral compounds.

INXENSIVE FARMING. 'After'the conclusion ol' the war it is; quite probable that England w.ll ob ' tain a muoh linger proportion of her food supplies from the outlying parts of the Jimpire.

Violet Cou>ii Sentinel Published Every Tuesday Morning lUKSLUY, APKIL 27, 1915. AUSTRIA'S PLIGHT. THE friction between Austria and Italy is evidently coming to ma. turity, apparently in accord with the designs of both parties. Ger many, for obvious reasons of its owp, wishes by. all and every means to avoid a rupture, an&lt;T has al lowed nothing to stand in the way of "bringing pressure to bear upon both partners of the Triple A1 liance. Short of active assistance ill the lield, .Italy's neutrality lias 'been of tho-'greateat-advantage to. Germany during thevcoursc of the war, and the ?.military authorities, aru loth to allow anything to oc cur. which might precipitate an cutranco of Italy intov the con flict against her former ally.

FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 27 April 1915
FOR WOMEN fBj "Ambwwine.") So many different ideas arc being put forth on the question ol° modoa that we are becoming quite dazed as to what really in, or is not, highest fashion. So it; were wiser to go abroad for a1 solution of our fashion difficulty, and find what those in tho hub of fashion making have to say about it. One well known writer says:-"This season tho , most .contradictory- elements prevail in the world of fashion. On the ono hand, there is the gown with tho eloso-litting bodice nnil full skirt. Both Silhouettes iire here now, and it is from thoir de velopment that the prevailing mode will evolve. At lirst it was thought that the [ t iylit bodice and full skirt would sweep the mode.
