'■ "Should the day ever come when thoi Viceroy is treated as a" mere puppet, as the mouthpiece .of the home Government who is required only.to carry but what ever orders it may be thought desirable to transmit him, I think the justification for the post would cease to exist. "About my resignation or the causes .that led to it I desire only to mention one cause that did not. It seems to have been thought in some quarters at home that this was a personal quarrel, and that I resigned on personal grounds." The retiring Viceroy went on to ex Dlain that he resigned for the sake of tho "greatest principles." "Reuter."

A QUAINT LITTLE ISLAND. SABA. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910
A QUAINT LITTLE ISLAND. SABA. Describing the little-known. Island .of. Saba in the West Indies, au American writer says it is a topsy-turyey place, where the men are great; sailors ,and build their boats on a mountain, and the women are" celebrated for /their beautiful complexions. • Creamy white, and rosy pink predominate in the faces of Saba's daughters, the fortunate result; of a combination of clouds and sulphur, noted for its beneficial effect on the skin.' Saba is often enveloped by clouds, and sulphur crops out everywhere on the hillsides, thus making the women's faces particularly attractive. Though a Dutch possession, the 2200 inhabitants of the island, speak nothing but Eng lish, and the conformation of the land is so strange that even in its nomencla ture it is admittedly upside down. Thrust from the bottom of the sea by an enormous volcanic force ages ago, .Saba is as rugged an island as there is in the world. The-only level place on it large enough to stand on with com ...

THE UNEMPLOYED PROBLEM HOW THE FRENCH DEAL WITH IT. ! The Paris correspondent of tho Lon don "Express" writes as follows:— Now that the persistent question of the unemployed forces itself with, sucii irresistibie power upon the British' mind, it may be of interest to see what' our French friends are doing in.'the matter, and how they manage to avoid such a crisis as is now confronting.4thp public powers in England's great^ met ropolis. The conditions, it is true, are'not alike1 in-both countries.. The-climate, sur roundings of life,* organisation-of labor;, differ entirely, the : charactei'. of the people also, and £his explains 'to a great extent why Frenchmen are spared vio lent attacks of that ■ loathsome .' disease, "lack "of employment," which annually occurs' in.'England at this season jOf tha yeaiv ' -v'" ■ : Of "unemployed" there are; of course, very many and manyin- France, ad'in every other counti'y,.- and • tne; oest- In- ( formed authorities/reckon their num ber at'an av...
SIR HENRY BLAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910
SIR HENRY BLAKE. i TheGovernor of Ceylon (writes the,. London "Daily News"), now return ing to his duties from' a visit tq Eng land, has: had a brilliant career, arid' done , great' things on the fringe of the Empire. His advance has been assisted' by his, beinr the fortunate husband of a very brilliant woman in a daughter of Bernal. Osborne. The latter was not ■ favorably disposed towards the : -match, when one of - his daughters was to wed: the Duke pf St. Albans:. He arranged, therefore, to give1 the younger daughter the lion's share of his wealth. But this she would not tolerate,, insisting that her elder sister should at least share equally ' with her. She had her way. Lady Blake is a woman of infinite charm and tact; clever, alert, and' cheerful. Her one foible is" for strange pets. The favorite is a tame leopard, which she reared from : its infancy.' It is good and kind and' docile, unless maltreated.

EXTRACTING. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910
EXTRACTING. Make the extractor clean by rinsing wen with boiling water and dry perfectly. Oil it well, but not to overflowing, as many do. To secure the best results all honey to be extracted should be in sealed combs. Take a good knife and lean the comb over and cut off the cappings from-, the bottom upwards, as in the sketch. Perform this operation in the evening at dusk, or you will wish the honey and bees at the bottom of the sea. After all the combs are extracted' return the crates with empty combs to the hives to be cleaned out by the bees. If they are left in the open robbing will be the result.
SONG OF THE FARMYARD MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910
SONG- OF THE FARMYARD MAN. I do not stand for circus tricks, For travail of the social round. I stand for Nature, I. Am proud Of rustic mills where corn is ground. I have no heart for give and take Of those whose lives are give and loss. Td liefer sec the dawn awake Above old gossip's futile dross. I stand for spade-work, true and deep, For smell of spaded mother-earth. I trust that, when I come to sleep. My faith, at least, will stand for worth. ' I know, when all is said and done, There's nothing worthier than the land, Than clover sown and crops hard-won And dew-wet touch of Nature's hand. Have we not seen young May come in Like wistful bride to bridegroom spring? Have we not heard the human din Grow silent as a swallow's wing? I stand for faith, my- friends, and 1 Must hope until the struggle end To see the clean moor kiss the sky,: And find the clear stars still my friend. —Halliwell Sutclifre, in tne "WestminBter Gazette."
THE BEEKEEPER WHEN TO ADD SUPEBS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 10 June 1910
THE BEEKEEPER WHEN TO ADD SUPEBS. For the want of a little knowledge on this subject much valuable time Is lost,' and often through the crowded state o£ the hive a swarm issues (writes "Chloris" i in the "Gardeners' Chronicle"). When1 all the frames or sections, save those or.: the outside, are filled and sealed, then is the time to add another rack or super. HOW TO ADD A SUPER. ( This is a very important point. Some , successful beekeepers create quite an up- ' roar when performing what is to many a very simple operation. Never choose a ( day which is cloudy and the bees are ha/- 1 ing a slack time, for then they seem j more prone to sting. The correct position for the new super is underneath those that are already nearly completed. Place &lt; the new super ready at hand, have the ] smoker well filled and burning furiously, &lt; give the bees a slight puff at the en- j trance and wait two or three minutes ; , then remove the roof, and as you turn back the quilts, pu...
