CHAPTER III. In High Places. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

CHAPTER III. In High Pisces. uoiree, liqueurs ona cigarettes nau been handed around, and Sir Walter Devant's guests were lounging care lessly at the perfcctly-appolnted din* ner-table. It was not a formal party, and the meal had been laid out In one of the morning-rooms of .the British Embassy in Berlin. From the point of view of popular fiction, Sir Walter was not a great Ambassador. Ho had few of those subtle qualities which people like- to road about; it had never beon his mission to make his tory, and he had few dramatic tri umphs to his credit. There was noth ing mysterious or sinister about him; ho was a plain, hearty, common-sense Englishman who played his cards openly and straightforwardly—but he knew every move of tho game, never theless. The underground wire-pullii and tho network of Jntrlguo without which successful diplomacy is impos sible, he \yas content to leave to hit | subordinate. In his day ho had been a noted, sportsman; he waB still, a line fisherman and shot, a...

WHEN TO APPLY FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

WHEN TO APPLY FERTILISERS. Always strive* to apply commercial fertilisers that arc beneficial to fruit trees per medium of the green crop. Manure these with reliable fertilisers, as plant food in this form is more natural to plant life. Don't give heavy dressings of commercial fertili sers unless there is plenty of humus In the soil; In fact, heavy dressings In the orchard are not desirable, for apart from liberal dressing to the green crop for turning in, only a light application of a well-balanced fertiliser Is necessary—say, about 2 cwt. to the acre applied after the green crop has been turned under, early in the spring. Should one be planting out the orchard before the soil has had a month or two's aera tion or exposure (after ploughing) to the atmosphere, incorporate in tho soil up to half a pound o! a fertiliser containing a well-balanced mixture of available phosphoric acid, potash and nitrogen—just sulflcient to give tho young tree a start. Tho best time to apply fertilisers...

TELEPHONE TALKERS. What an Elecoution Teacher Says. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

TELEPHONE TALKERS. What an Elccoution Teacher Says. According to the trained oar of an elocution teacher, the persistent use of the telephone has done much to improve the speech of the public in general and of women in particular. Whether or not this statement -would stand the test in every case, it is certainly true that the woman addicted to the telephone habit unconsciously acquires something of benefit not only in the carrying power of a wc-ll-modu lated voice and clearness of enuncia tion. but also in general directness of expression, which such a limited con versation makes necessary. Any woman who doubts the truth of this statement has but to notice how quickly an intelligent maid employed iu a home where there is much tele phoning will acquire a good speaking voice and an air of self-confidence and persoual dignity quite out of keeping with ber original manner. It Is noth ing unusual nowadays for a prospect ive employer to inquire as to a maid's "telephone manner" before eng...

FREAKS OF THE TIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

FREAKS OF THE TIDE. To the ordinary lay inhul the tides i'loni: our const are most puzzling, no knows that the tides rise and fall twice in twentyronr hours, and that this depends in some mysterious way upon the moon. Hut if in his travels he sees a spot along; the shore where tl.ere is no tide he is nt a loss to ac count for it. To be exact, there is only one ocean In the world where the tides follow ;l'o moon with regularity, and this 1b the great Antarctic basis. And the reason is that there Is the only place a sweep of water is to be found that is entirely uninterrupted by land.

FAMOUS ECCENTRICS. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

FAMOUS ECCENTRICS. Fngnnini had his share of eccen tricity. He feared no one, ami when he was disposed to fly oil" at i\ tangent neither audience nor King could keep him in tin* reuular orbit. In the reign of Louis Philippe he agreed to play at a . ourt concert announced at the Tuileries. .lust before the concert he looked at the room. The curtains were hung so as to interfere with the sound, and he asked the superinten dent to have them properly arranged. The official paid no heed to the re quest, but so offended Paganini bv his manners that the vicJtnist deter mined not to play. The hour of the concert came, but no Paganini. At last a n.essenger was sent to his hotel. The violinist was there; but he had gone to bed. Paganlni's eccentricity once caused him to be mobbed at Ferrara. In those days the common people of the suburbs of that little town looked upon the dwellers in the town itself as "a set of asses." Hence any yokel of the suburbs, if asked where he came from, never repli...

WORLD'S CHAMPION HEN. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

WORLD'S CHAMPION HEN. Will poultrj'-breeders ultimately I succeed in producing a hen -which -will lay an egg every day? Such an ac- J complishment seems quite within the ' bounds of possibility, "Judging-by the wonderful record established by Pro fessor James Dryden, who has suc ceeded in rearing a hen that has laid no fewer tl an 291 eggs in a year. Be fore this American accomplishment the world's record was held by Can ada, with a purebred hen that had laid 282 eggs in 365 days. The hen in question was hatched on April 29, 1912, and began to lay when only five and a-haU months old. I Not only is she a cross-bred bird her- j self, but the parent birds also were j cross-bred. There was nothing extra-1 ordinary in either of these, excepting i the fact that the mother hen was a j prolific layer of eggs, a trait that has : emphasised itself to an extraordinary degree in her offspring. No special care or attention was be-, stowed upon this abnormal egg-pro ducer. She was reared and fed ...

On, on, on, tho train sped relent lessly, and with a shock he saw tho broad expanso of tho North Sea clear and limpid and shimmering; and the familiar brown-sailed boats dotted tho silvery surface. Far down at the foot of tho cliffs he saw the restless waves crash inwards among tho green glis tening rocks. He held his breath In tho Intensity of this new emotion. The sea was calling, calling.
