A determined ell'ort is about to be luaiio to recommence operations at the lierringu Prospecting Associa tion's' claim, and a meeting of share holders hss been convened for Tues day evening to consider the pro posal of driving for the William's Fancy lines of reef.

At the William's Fancy the south drive No 7 level is operating on a strong well defined bedy of stone worth over half an ounce to the ton.

CRUSHING REBUKE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 January 1914

CRUSHING REBUKE. In tlio early days or railways, on some of the linos smoking was not al lowed at all, either in tho trains or 011 the station buildings. One day a station-master of a large station, a man noted for his conceit and pomposity, descried a gentleman pacing tlio platform with a cigar in his mouth. Ho at ouch accosted the offen der and Vequcsted him forthwith to stop smoking. The gentleman took no no tice of this command, but continued to walk, emitting a silvery cloud. The station master asked him to stop smoking more poremptorily than be fore; but still tlio owner of the Ha vana maintained a provoking disregard A third time the order wXs repented, accompanied by a threat that if thr obstinate sinner did not obey he would bo handed over to the tender mercies of the porters. Tlio stranger took no more heed than before, so at last the official, complete ly losing his temper, pulled the cigai out of the smoker's mouth and flung it away.

CHAPTER XLVII. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 January 1914

CHAPTER XLVII. John Cott, in company of his nephew, visited the shop of one Seena, a tobacconist. "I have come," said Cott, "to claim the monies for a certain pipe, do you remember?" "I remember perfectly well," smiled the tobacconist, "but you cannot have the monies." "But, you pirate, I won my case." "But not the bet," answered Mr. Seena. "Do you deny that the plaintiff did not benefit?" "Not so," replied the tobacconist and philosopher. "But the plaintiff was innocent, so you pay for the pipe. I wished I had charged double for it!" "This is double dealing with a ven geance," grumbled John Cott. "I insist upon the return of its very exorbitant price." "Why not let Miss Burnev decide," suggested his nephew, laughing. "A very proper suggestion," agreed the King's Counsel. "I am going to her now. Pirate, give me a box of Seena cigarettes." "With great pleasure, sir, and I ab solutely refuse to charge for them." Young Mr. Penistone Cott handed the K.C. into a cab. "Good luck, Uncle," ...

A FRIEND. A friend is a person who is "for you" always, under any suspicions. He nev«.r investigates you. When charges aro mado against you ho does not ask proof. Ho asks tho accuser to clear out. He likes you just as you are. Ho does not want to alter you. Whatever kind of coat you are wear ing suits liira. Whether you have on a dress suit or a hickory shirt with no col lar, ho thinks it's fine. Ho likes your moods and enjoys your pe.ssimism as much as your optimism. He likes your success.

ASHES FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 January 1914

ASHES FOR PIGS. It has been noted by pig-breeders that health and thrift are prolonged to a great degree by allowing con stant ucoGsa to ashes, and if salt be mixed with them, the effect is still wore marked, and the composition is partaken of with greater relish. All feeders who have tried it pronounce the benefits unmistakable, and re sults most gratifying. Prof. Henry made some experiments in this line, and the following is what came of It: "Three pigs were taken at Ave months of age, and closely confined and fed maize-meal and hardwood ashes for six weeks. During this time they gained five and a-lialf pounds each per week, and consumed 2S% pounds of maize-meal per week. For thirteen weeks thereafter they were fed no ashes whatever, and fell oft in. the consumption of corn meal to the average of 10% pounds per week. Sev eral other experiments were tried, all showing the same approximate re sults." Feeding pigs Is a sure paying crop, if good judgment in selection prevail, and econ...

THE POULTRY YARD ADVANTAGES OF EARLY MOULTING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 January 1914

THE POULTRY YARD ADVANTAGES OF EARLY MOULTING. Those who have just commenced poultry keeping and have some last year's birds would do well to realise what those with experience have learnt, that a hen which moults be fore the winter is more valuable than a pullet, because she lays large eggs, and generally quite as many of them. It is wise to induce hens to moult be fore the winter wherever it can be arranged. When the hens shed their feathers in the warm weather it is a saying of over 30 per cent., as the feathers grow so much more quickly when the weather is warm; not only that, but the birds are ready for the winter worli, and it is not as difficult to get them 011 to lay then as it is when they have moulted late aud have conse quently felt the strain more. Those poultry keepers who keep i their fowls especially for producing eggs for the table and markets should ■. get their birds in order for laying. Some people have an idea that it is too stimulating and leaves the bird weak, ...

THE AMATEUR'S NEED OF ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 January 1914

THE AMATEUR'S NEED OF ADVICE. Amateur poultry-keepers must not expect to succeed and find everything to go on smoothly at the first with out the aid of advice from some ex perienced person. This needs to be clearly understood. Thero is a great deal of knowledge to be acquired in the work of poultry-keeping, and there is no one who knows so much that cannot still learn more, even af ter having had years of practical ex perience. Fanciers of wide experience are generally glad of bints from oth ers as to their ways and methods, and are ready and willing still to learn. Beginners, however, are often too self reliant, and will neither ask for ad vice nor yet take it if It is offered freely. The result is they make many blunders often before they have well begun, and thus blight their prospects of success completely. "A good beginning is half the bat tle." But to be self-reliant and plunge hastily into the work without thought and care at the start is only to pave the way to failure. Let ...
