WATER ONLY ONE FEATURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 3 October 1913
WATER ONLY ONE FEATURE. Were unlimited quantities of water available from Irrigation sources, the only effect, without a proper system of manuring, would toe ,to render the soil completely barren more quickly. He who hopes to sit at ease, and by applying irrigation water, and that alone, to his land, and by so doing to reap continuous ' and rich harvests, will in time discover * is blunder. Ir» rigation, Without proper fertilising, will quickly render fertile land barren, and convert the poorer lands .into sterile and useless districts. Irriga tion, with judicious manuring, will convert the p.oorest soil into fertile land; will' enable more'profit to be made from a very small area than could be made from hundreds of acres without irrigation, and will bring cer tain harvests and sure profits to an Industrious and contented people.
THREE THINGS NEEDFUL. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 3 October 1913
THREE THINGS NEEDFUL. Tlie man on the land must be help ed and encouraged, for he has a right to expect help and encouragement. The agricultural population of any" country constitutes Its strength, and also Its reserve power against adverse happenings in times df peace or war.

CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 3 October 1913
CHAPTER IV. The cheerful tide of spring was roll ins over the face of England, and Rhinehead Heath in particular, where nad assembled a company of a couple of thousand happy, careless women and stalwart men, dressed for sport, and most of them holding some social rank. It was just a glorious English" spring morning, very suitable for im portant golf, and this was the final for a lady's South of England cham pionship. The finalists were Lady Elinor Mount Avon and Angela Burney; each a capable mistress of her own par ticular game. Miss Burney had won her way into the final by outdriving every opponent. Lady Elinor owed her success, as she 'had done in the previous year, to her accurate .putting on the greens. During the .previous rounds in the competition, as one watched Miss Burney's free, swinging drive, it was borne in upon one that Angela Burney played like a sure winner, some of this impression no doubt being due to Miss Burney's admirable personal ity. Again, in many a smoking-r...
