In the beginning, v. hen his tumlet s full of milk, and his soul of con ent, he lies upon his back and kicks lis heels in the air; he says "Go-ga" >nd "Goo-goo," and that is Fun.

CHAPTER XLVII. John Cott, in company of his nephew, visited the shop of one Seena, . ;i tobacconist. ' "I have come," said Cott, "to claim the monies for a certain pipe, do yon remember?"

"But"the plaintiff was innocent, so you pay for the pipe. 1 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 Burney decide," suggested his nephew, laughing. "A very proper suggestion." acrced the King's Counsel.

It's frightfully hard to make some persons under.stiinil that when one of literature's vagrants lias money enough to last, him into the middle of Janu ary ho continues to be rich until he's poor again. When I'm noor I chase work, take 01: any sort of hack writing, from interviews to encyclopaedias, hut , when I'm rich T dodge it. The harder' I pursue, the more desperately I have to flee later on.

THE POULTRY YARD ADVANTAGES OF EARLY MOULTING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 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 largo 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 saving 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 worls, and it is not as didicult to got them on to lay then as it is when they have moulted late and have conse quently felt the strain more. Those poultry keepers who keep 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, but thi...

ASHES FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 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 access 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: I "Three pigs were taken at five months of age, and closely confined-' and fed maize-meal and hardwood ashes for six weeks. During this time they gained five and a-half pounds each per week,' and consumed 2SV4 pounds of maize-meal per week. For thirteen weeks thereafter they were fed no ashes whatever, and fell off in the consumption of corn meal to the average of 19% pounds per week. Sev eral other experiments were tried, all showing the same approximate re | suits." ; Feeding pigs Is a sure paying crop, if good judgment in .selection prev...
THE AMATEUR'S NEED OF ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 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. There 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 hints 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. if "A good beginning is half the bat tle." But to be self-reliant and plunge hastily into the work without thought niul care at the start is only to pave the way to f...
