WHICH IJEG ? In ? a small town in th# West ol Scotland the town clerk, who was a bit of a "character," had the mis fortune to lose his leg in a railway accident. As a mark or appreciation and es teem for his Jong sorvices, the coun cil unanimously agreed to replace his - loss with an artificial limb, which they "did as soon as ho was sufficiently recovered. A few months afterwards the town clerk, who was generally known by his Christian name, Paul, was un fortunate enough to have his other leg fractured in a trap accidont. Naturally the mishap became food for town gossip, and one old wife, in discussing the matter with a neighbour, was overheard saying : "It's a gey bad business for Paul, puir man ; but is't his oin leg or the leg that belangs to the toon that's broken

Convict's Gratitude. STEALING FOR PHILANTHROPY'. George Gunning, a taciturn Eng lishman, who was recently released from gaol in America, where he had been detained for stealing dia monds from the house of a New York physician, confessed that he had robbed there and in Europe be cause of his affection for two little English orphan girls. Gunning says that he left Dartmoor Prison in 1909, penniless, friendless, and de sperately lonesome. Hunger drove him to a pleasure park, where suc cour came to him from two little charges of a foundling asylum. The children were enjoying a picnic but, seeing him in distress, they gave him buns and cake. In their haste to run away from "the wild man" the two children fell into a pond. Gunning rescued both, and slunk i\way before the women folk could see him. "Immediately I resolved to help those kids," said Gunning. "I en tered a house outside London that night. With the loot I dressed like a nobleman, I went to the found ling asylum and managed to a...

Tq our columns to-day tho old I established firm of George Smith, seed nr.il plant. uu reliant and SPm-rul ' i.urseiyman, of Ballarat., is adver tising particulars o! fodder seeds. New Zealand farmers have Ion;* recog niM'd the fact that only a millionaire can aftord all natural pitture, and a thousand acres of turnips rape, silver beet, millets, mangles and other fodder crops is no unusual thing on the big farms of tho dominion. Although a large acrfage is sown e\erv year for fodder crops in Victoria, we are sti'l much behind New Zealand in this respect, but with fat stock of all kinds selling so well the sowing this year is likely to greatly exceed all previous records.

CLEARING STUMPS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 31 July 1914
CLEARING STUMPS. 1 As the years go by, and land be comes more an3 more valuable in this country, greater attention will have to be paid to making every part of a holding capable of yielding the maximum return, and in the ease of old bush land this can only be done by clearing off the stumps and fitting the land, where it is level enough, for the use of the plough. Blowing out stumps with ex plosives is, of course, no new thing, but the actual experience of a South Australian farmer may be a guide as to the methods and approximate cost to those who have had no pre vious experience in the work. "I had," writes a correspondent of the Adelaide "Observer," "some 230 stumps and dead trees removed from the land. Many of them were up to Gft. in diameter. The work was performed by Mr. E. Thomson of Barkside (better known as 'Dyna mite Thomson'), at a total cost of £27, which works out at 2/4 per stump. The time occupied was 34 hours. A considerable expense and needless delays were incurred i...
THE DAIRY. THE JERSEY COW. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 31 July 1914
THE DAIRY. THE JERSEY COW. (Eltract from as Address by L. P. * Bailey, Ohio.) The products of tha Jersey cow milk, cream, butter and cheese stand, in the markets of the world, for best quality. AI1 these have won more premiums in the great com petitive shows than all other breeds combined. No name of any other breed is used to decorate the sides of milk wagons that go through our streets nor the signs on butter and cheese stands. The milk from the average herd of Jersey cows show 5 per cent., and better of butter-fat, making it the most economical the consumer can buy. They can take one pint of cream from one gallon fl per cent, of mil': and the remainder will be as rich as the whole milk of some other brec-ds. I In this way they get the very best | cream and milk in the same bottle at .the price of milk. I No milkman or dealer c^in work up I or even hold customers in any city, I where the people arc acquainted with land can get Jersey milk, with any .other except that of the Guerns...

CHAPTER XXV. PAYING THE PRICE OF HER 1 FATHER'S SIN. A couple of weeks elapsed ; then one afternoon Fitzpatrick went up to the Hall and told Hctherington that it was about time his daugh , ter was told he wished to marry her. I 'You can say that I've more j money than I gave people the im pression of having - quite a decent Mitt e fortune," said the doctor, with | a slight sneer, as he left the room ; ! and Josh, who hated to feel that he ' was in any man's power, felt that I | he would like to kill him, but as ; there was no alternative, he decided to speak to Pat that evening. | Accordingly, after dinner, wSen he entered the drawing room, he was 1 ? glad to find his wife was not there ?

LOOK AFTER THE HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 31 July 1914
LOOK AFTER THE HORSES. Driving horses that are inclined to seour when driven fast should have a handful of powdered chalk in the feed, Charcoal is also beneficial. Feed spar ingly of hay and only at night. One of the very oest remedies for soreness in the muscles and tondons is iodine and sweet oil, equal parts, well rubbed in. Do not neglect to examine tho horee'i mouth frequently. A soro mouth is the cause of many unpleasant habits. He careful how the bits aro fitted. Tho placing of the bit in the horse's mouth has a great influence on his manner of going. Keep the teeth filed smooth, so the pressure of the bit will not cut tho lining of the cheeks. Keep the mouth responsive and sen sitive. Too much cannot bo said on this subject, for if a horso's mouth is spoiled much of his valuo and safety are gone. Bad and cruel bits will do it. Yanking will do it. Keep the colt's feet rasped level. If allowed to wear uneven there will be a bad twist and strain on the soft, young joints. The s...

CHAPTER''Sin. A CASE OF BARTER. Joshua Hetherington sat quite , still, looking, with blanched face at tho man opposite to him, whose ut terance had come like an avalanche, bringing; that past, which had seem ed so far away, so securely buried, back, to him, and revealing in all its baldness the crime lie had commit ted. > "I-knoiv all about the blue dia monds," repeated Fitzpatrick. , For a moment longer there-" was silence, the two men sat and looked at each other, and as he gazed at "his companion Hetherington realised that he was a man whose silence coukl be bought, and the thought braced him up, so that his voice I never faltered as he said : | "What do you kraow about the blue diamonds?" ?

LUMINOSITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 31 July 1914
LUMINOSITIES. | There are always times when we wish we could see something, which the darkness hides. The angler gives up because he cannot see his float ; the cricketer because he cannot see the ball. Luminous paint solves all these, and scores of other difficulties. And all that is required is to add a small quantity of calcium sulphide to ordinary white paint. Fonts, balls, , keyholes, etc., then become visible. ! A watch light for use at ni-g-ht avoiding the striking of a match can be made by putting u small piece of phosphorus into a loug glass phial, and then filling it one-third full with hot oil. Cork it tightly, and, when light is needed, uncork for a moment and close again. The top part of the phial will he luminous, j and y.ou can sec the timo.
ARE YOU LEFT-HANDED? [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 31 July 1914
ARE YOU LEFT-HANDED ? I Why, don't you make more use of your left hand ? It has been estimated that 97 per cent, of the English-speaking people are right-handed" when they grow up. ' Seventeen out of every hundred are born right-handed, but the remaining eighty-three are born without any in clination to use one hand more than the other, and, therefore, become : right-handed owing to influences brought to bear on them during their childhood days. | It is impossible to calculate how much men lose by neglecting, their left hands. Formerly - in primitive times, that is to say-everyone was ambidextrous ; and the sooner people become ambidextrous again the bet ter. j In Japan, for many years past, soldiers and schoolbojs have been taught to use both hands. And this I wise example is now being followed in Germany.
