LUCERNE GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 22 January 1908

LUCERNE GROWING. V The results of experiments in lucerne growing at the Experiment Station, In diana, U.S^_, are interesting. In the United States lucerne is called alfalfa. - From a recent bulletin issued by the Indiana Experiment Station dealing with alfalfa, we take the following in formation: — . The land for alfalfa most be thorough ly drained, either naturally or artifi cially. All lands subject to overflow, or liable to have standing water of any kind upon them, are also unfit for al falfa. It has been demonstrated time and again that alfalfa cannot exist In the presence of standing water on or near the surface of the ground. The usual water level in the soil should not be higher than four feet below the sur face, and on the heavier types of soils good drainage must be provided for all surplus rain water. SOIL AND FERTILISATION. There Is a good deal of substantial evidence that goes to enow that almost any type of soli, from heavy days to sandy and gravelly loams, will give s...

THE CORPUS SUN-DIAL. AT PRINCETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 22 January 1908

THE CORPUS Stm-DIAL AT PRINCETON. Indirectly the famous sun-dial In the quadrangle of Corpus Christ! College, Oxford, of which a replica has just been unveiled by Mr Bryce at Princeton, may be traced to the sagacious 'policy of Bishop Fbxe In throwing open the Readerships of his new foundation to foreigners. Amongst the first admis sions was Nicholas 'Crutcher' -Le, Kratzert. a native of Bavaria, who be came astronomer to Henry VTH., and covered Oxford with sun-dials, one of which was in Corpus gardens. These have all perished, though he himself sur vives In fine portraits by Holbein. Nicholas Kratzer transmitted his astronomical -and horologlcal traditions to Turnbull, who designed the present sun-dial (which is really an ingenious comblatlon of dials), and also wrote a book on sidereal astronomy. — 'West- minster Gazette.' ?

FORTUNES IN. BIOGRAPHIES. Is it still possible to^make a fortune out of a single publication? The answer depends, In part, on the definition of the term 'fortune.'' But If you 'are modest enough so to describe a sum of L20.O00, that Is the amount which Messrs. Mac millan are reputed to have netted out of Morley's 'Life of Gladstone.'
