AGRICULTURE. TEST YOUR SEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 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 and spread one of them 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, the germination is pretty good, but below ninety the value of the seed begins to tie doubt ful.

A Milder Term. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914

A Milder Term. A complaint was brought before the Bishop o£ Exeter that a clergyman in his diocese was wearing an Oxford master's hood when, in fact, he had no such degree. "I call it, my lord," said the com plainant, "wearing a lie on his back." '.'We need not use so strong a term," replied the Bishop, -We will call it a false hood."

POINTED REPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914

POINTED REPLIES. It is very amusing sometimes to hear the 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 thj 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 ati...

PROMPT ATTENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 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 tooth 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 bade 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.

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. An accident, said to be the most ex traordinary on record, occured at some oiifielda in the 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 nitro-glycerine were brought down by rail from Derbend, a.nd- 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 known 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 toria...

DID YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914

DID YOU? Did you give him a liu.' 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 liim 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 road, Or did you just let him go on with his load? Do you know what it means to be losing the flglit, 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—wny cne 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?

WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 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." If there is an absorbing piece of literary work to be accomplished., the tiBual desk detail is cleared away, the ink bottle filled, the old pens re placed with new ones; when a busi ness man has a large undertaking on hand, he first rids his calendar of small appointments and annoying cir cumstances; the clerk 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 them 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 forgo ahead in her work, and make time count, needs to be relieved of clutter 2nd inconvenient arrangements which are on all sides a bar to progress. It is her habit to clear away her dishes and clea...

EGGS THAT CROAK. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 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 Jliat it can be heard when the eggs" are buried under one or two yards of sand. Dr. W. 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. Voeltzkow 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 closed, 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 ...

Slieila Danvers' gay season did not end a day too soon. The weather was very sultry, and the girl's pretty rounded cheeks, never liigrtly colored, became paler and paler. She longed for the country; she pined to see Dearma again, and, above all, she wanted to be in the lio'ir'y and daily presence of Shamus O'Dayle. By Bellairs' request, his wife told Sheila nothing of her intended visit to Melbourne, and tho .wrl naturally supposed that Aunt Market was go ing for a short time to Sunnyside un til Uncle Peter was al'.e to take his holiday. Little did alio guess what had actually taken jwicc, and Mrs. Bellairs, notwithstanding that queer mingling of pain and rejoicing which filled her heart, did nor dare to tell her.

SEED POTATOES. Necessity for Careful Selection. [Newspaper Article] — Bruthen and Tambo Times — 24 June 1914

SEED POTATOES/ Necessity for Careful Selection. Numbers of growers have had rea son to complain of'the quality of their seed potatoes. Perhaps they are them selves to 'blame to some extent for not taking greater care in selecting the seed. The seed potato which- is most favored is one weighing from two to four ounces, and the grower who makes a rule of excluding from his lines all that fail to come within this standard will give satisfaction to the purchaser and to those who handle his consignments. Not only will he be able to command a higher price in a bare market, but in a full market his stock will bring him quick and good returns, while; ihat of his less careful neighbor will hang fire and possibly at the last be sacrified. Diseased and scabby potatoes should on 110 account be allowed to pass. Knobby and misshapen sets should also be strictly excluded. Jt needs but very few of these to completely spoil a whole line. Tile result of growing from the same stock year after year wou...
