THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914
THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. According to Mr. Gilbert, author of : "Fortunes for Farmers," spiritless Hodge is to be supplanted by an alert , blue-smocked engineer, who will re ceive good wages and do the work of : ten men, and be worth a hundred. If ' this be the type of man who is to do the tillage of the future, lie will re quire a standard wage as will enable him to live in a good dwelling, and thus the rural housing problem will soon solve itself! Mr. Gilbert . has evidently a warm heart for small holdings, but pertinently says, "they cannot be established anywhere-only on better soils can th^y succeed."
AGRICULTURE. TEST YOUR SEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914
AGRICULTURE. TEST YOUR SEEDS. Testing clover, grass seed, etc.: Take two common plates and get two pieces of cotton cloth about the size of the plates. Dip the cloths into warm water anil spread one of tliem on a plate. Take a handful from the seed that is to be tested and place it on the table. Count out 100 seeds. Scatter these upon the wet cloth on the plate. Spread the other cloth over the seed and press it down. Then turn the other plate upside down on the plate with the seeds, leaving the cor ners of the cloths sticking out between the plates. Place where it is reason ably warm, and keep the cloths moist by sprinkling with water two or three times a day. Keep a record of the number of seeds that have sprouted each day, until no more seeds show signs of life. A week is as long as this should take. If ninety to ninety five seeds grow, tho germination is pretty good, but below ninety the value of the seed begins to be doubt ful.
CAN YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914
CAN YOU? Some men seem to have such a good idea of balance that they can pick a long ladder up in the middle, the first pop. Others can't, and so they try it a good while and waste a lot of strength. Just take those ladders now, balance them, and put a stripe of different colored paint right around the side pieces at the right place. Or, paint the round at the pivotal point some color other than that of the rest of the ladder.
HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914
HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT We get from the land what we put into it. If we build permanently we will be sheltered in later days; if we plant wisely we will read the content ment in the shade of the next genera tion. If a farm is regarded as merely a cold, money making enterprise wo miss the harvest of good living in later years; but if we regard the farm as a home and cultivate those essen tials of satisfying living, comforts, trees and flowers, and things of beauty we reap a perennial harvest in the ripe years of old age when such things come to have a value far be yond grains and fat beasts.
VIM OF THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914
VIM OF THE FARMER. The farmer's vim shows in getting at the work the minute it is ready. Shows, too, in the way he pushes that work. One day on and two days off point to failure in the near future. Vim shows, also, in the pride a man puts into his work. Some men show by their very faces that they love their work and are bound to do it just right. They are the ones that come out at the head of the heap. Vim keeps a man's heart bright and cheery. Takes a pretty good man to whistle just as cheerily when it rains as when it shines! The man with true vim in his heart can do it, and he will do it. Any men with vim down your way?
WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. When we have a special work to do we first "clear the decks for action." I[ there is an absorbing piece of literary work to be accomplished, the usual desk detail is cleared awav, tlie ink bottle filled, the old pens re placed with new ones; when a busi ness man lias a large undertaking on hand, he first, rids his calendar of small appointment? and annoying cir cumstances; the cicrlc in the store, to show a new line of goods, clears his counter of everything else; every good business manager, in order to have his men work to advantage, re lieves thorn first of petty inconveni ences which would hinder their pro gress. This is good business manage ment. Time and money are gained thereby. The housekeeper, in order to forge a head in her work, and make time count, needs to he relieved of clutter and inconvenient arrangements which are on all sides a bar to progress. It is her habit to clear away her dishes and c...

DID YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914
DID YOU? Did you give him a lilt: He's a brother of man, And bearing about all the burden he can. Did you give him a smile? He was downcast and blue, And the smile would have helped him to battle it through. Did you give him your hand? He was slipping down hill, And the world, so I fancied, was using him ill. Did you give him a word? Did you show him the toad, Or did you just let him go on with his load? Do you know what it means to be losing the fight, When a lift just in time might set everything right? Do you know what it means-just the clasp of a hand, When a man's borne about all a man ought to stand? Did you ask what it was-wiiy tne quivering lip? Why the half-suppressed sob, and the scalding tears drip? Were you brother of his when the time came of need? Did you offer to help him, or didn't you heed?

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Fublished by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XVII. Sheila Danvers' gay season did not end a day too soon. The weather was very sultry, and the girl's pretty rounded cheeks, never highly colored, became paler and paler. She longed for the country; she pined to see Dearma again, ana, above all, she wanted to be in the hour'y and daily presence of Shamus O'Doyle. By Bellairs' request,' his wife told Sheila nothing of her intended visit to -Melbourne, and the girl naturally supp sed tl.at Aunt Margaret was go "'sT,or,a sllort time to Sunny side un til Uncle Peter was able to take his holiday. Little did she guess what Jad actually talcen place, and Airs. Bellairs, notwithstanding that queer mingling of pain and rejoicing which iilled her heart, did not dare to tell her. Bellairs was a keen sportsman. He was ulso a wonderful climber, and knew every i...

PROMPT ATTENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914
PROMPT ATTENTION. An instance of perseverance is re corded of a sharp young commercial from Redditch, who waited upon a gentleman at Newark. The custom er's shop had doors for entrance and exit at 'both ends. Mr. H., the com mercial, called upon this worthy, and the following conversation took place: > "You are perhaps not aware, sir, tnat I represent 'S.,' of Redditch?" "Yes, I am aware. But I require no thing. Besides, I do with B. and Co., and they serve me well." "Perhaps you will look at my sam ples, sir?" "I tell you, man, I'm quite full; you annoy me." "But if you were just to favor me with a look, sir, I think an order might " "I'll give you an order now: Leave my shop!" "Certainly, sir," said the commer cial, as he hade the man good morn ing, and made a speedy excit by the lower door; but only to re-enter the shop by the upper door, addressing the man as though he had never seen him before: "Good morning, sir; I have the honor of representing 'S.,' of Red ditch. 1 hope t...
LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914
LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. An accident, said to be the most ex traordinary on record, occured at some oilfields in tlie Baku district of Russia, on the borders of the Caspian Sea. One of the big "gusher" oil wells became choked, and, -with a view of blowing it clear, a number of iron drums full of niiro-glyccrinc wore brought down by rail from Dcrbend. a.Td deposited over-night in a large shed, which was used by the men as a sort of canteen. The steward of this establishment a Greek named Darios, opened one of the drums for some reason best kndwn to himself, and "decanted" a small quantity of the dangerous liquid into a long thin glass used for mixing vod ka. This he placed on a shelf behind the bar. Shortly afterwards there entered a workman named Borko vitch, who was famous for the bois terous hilarity of his manner, and es pecially for his loud, resonant laugh ter. The sight of nitro-glycerine in a vodka tumbler so excited his risibility that he gave vent to a series of sten torian ...
EGGS THAT CROAK. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914
EGGS THAT CROAK. That young unhatched crocodiles ut ter an audible croaking cry within the eggs in which they are laid is averred by "Knowledge," and it adds that the cry is so loud and distinct that it can be heard when the eggs are buried under one or two yards of sand. Dr. TV. A. Lamborn tested the fact at Lagos, on the "West African coast. He heard a croaking noise from be low a dry path, and, digging in the path to investigate the cause, he dis covered thirteen crocodile's eggs at a depth of about 18in. All the young crocodiles hatched out within half an hour of being dug up. So far back as 1899 Dr. Voeltzlcow noticed that unhatched Madagascar crocodiles uttered a cry from the egg at a depth of two yards, and that any shock, as of a heavy tread, near the egg caused the baby crocodiles to produce this sound "with the mouth closSd, as we produce hiccup sounds." In this way they inform the female crocodile when she visits the nest that they want her aid, whereupon she scrapes the ...
POINTED REPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 25 June 1914
POINTED REPLIES. It is very amusing sometimes to hear tile ever-ready and witty replies made by some people to the questions they are asked. It is said by some to be an "extra gift," for, no matter where they are or how quick the ques tion is given, they are able to give an answer or offer an excuse. The fol lowing are rather interesting: "Is your client pleading insanity?" "I haven't decided," replied the law yer. "He wants to look the ground over and see which is the easiest to escape from-the prison or the asy lum." A clumsy carver once sent a goose into a lady's lap. His apology was better than his carving. "Ah, madam, how potent your charms are! They attract not only the living, but also t'.u dead." On an examination paper on "How we are Governed" was the question: "If the Prime Minister, the Chancel lor of the Exchequer, the Home Secre tary, and all the other members of the Cabinet should die, who would officiate?" A boy of twelve thought for a moment; then the happy inspir at...

FOR THE OFFENCE OF THINKING. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 July 1914
FOR THE OFFENCE OF THINKING. A boy of twelve was fouiuj wander ing one day in the fields near ttenoa, Italy, by an Austrian police agent, and was roused from a mood of abstrac tion by the question, "Wliat are you doing?" "Thinking," was the terse re ply.' That evening, bis father, a pro fessional man already under suspi sion for the same offense, was inform ed of his son's occupation, and told also that the Austrian government did not permit of "thinking" by its sub lets. That was about the year 1S20. A few years after the boy was in pri son-still thinking! In the year 1S49 all the roads to Mi lan were filled with armed and march ing columns-made up, not of Aus trians, but of Italians. On the main one running toward the Mediterranean the heaviest body was moving. A great stir was visible one morning. A tremendous shout was heard down the entire line. It was taken up from brigade to company, from hamlet to hamlet, village to village, town to town, as the stirring report was heard, an...
