The Road Hog. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 26 September 1914
The Road Hog. They were going along the public highway at a leisurely rate of 40 miles per hour, when a decrepit hen and rooster started to do the chicken specialty—cross the road. The front and hind wheels ou the right side struck the poor, old, stilf jointed rooster amidships, and with one squawk he succumbed. Immedi ately th'c man at the wheel started to slow down, and to look about for a place to turn. His solicitous wife turned to her seat-mate aud said: "Isn't that just like his tender heart? lie won't be saiislied unless he goes back and set tles for that rooster. He just can't bear to feel he has injured anyone or anything." Then, louder, to her husband, she said: "George, remember that ap pointment. We haven't any time to go back for anything." Glancing at the clock near his feet and at the speedometer near by, he sighed and said: "You're right, Jen nie; but 1 just know if I had turned back I would have killed that old hen just as easy as I did the rooster!"
A SPLENDID FOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 26 September 1914
A SPLENDID FOOL. By Ian Grosvenor. Jt was the sound of a woman's sob which first attracted Carteris's atten tion to the girl's slender figure. Lean ing against a foul buttress of the slum's archway, blotted against the un speakable dirt of its crumbling mason ry,* she crouched, weak, apparently on tlie verge of unconsciousness. Hesitatingly, the young surgeon halted on the mud-bespattered kerb, looking half-curiously at the limp, pa thetic figure. Transitorily, he believed her drunk, like many another he had passed that Saturday night during his careful threading of those noisome purlieus, then curiosity made him make a closer inspection of the girlish form. 1'linging the butt of his cigar in the mud, he stepped to her side, his face setting grimly, as by the flickering light of a distant gas jet he read the tragedy of poverty street in the white features of his strangely-met com panion. Starvation peered out at him from every line of a face lovely in . spite of its awe-inspiring st...
Why He Played It. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 26 September 1914
Why He Played It. Some years ago the Oldham Ama teurs were producing one of Han del's oratorios, under the personal tuition and conductorship of the hue Charles Halle. • Among the orchestra was the famous and gigantic bassoon player, George Seel, of Ashton undcr-Lyne. At the final rehears il Halle went to George and, indicat ing several bars for the bassoon, told him not to play them 011 the nigiit of the performance. George was in wardly boiling with indignation, but said nothing. On the night of the performance George played the banned music. When the affair was over Halle went up to Seel in a great rage, and, pointing to the notes, said:— "I told you to leave that out, didn't I?" "Aye, you did," said George, "but Handel towd me to put it in, and he were a better judge than you!"
Why He Hated War. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 26 September 1914
Why He Hated War. "YVais" cried the old gentleman in the Pugsbury Anns smoking room, "is a curse and a disgrac:.. War," lie continued, thumping the table with his list, "is an abomin i tion and a blot 011 civilisation! The very name of .war," he shouted, sweeping two glasses and a pint pot oil the board in his excitement—"the vcrv name of war is enough to mal:e a dccent, respectable man go and 'ang hissclf out of pure disgust!" Having thus delivered himself, lie rose and left the room, his fine old lace showing signs of sfrong emo tion. "Gentleman seems to feel rather deeply on the subject," said a com mercial traveller, who had been listening to his remarks. ' "He do," assented one of the natives. "Has lie lost some near relative through the war?" inquired the commercial. "He 'ave," replied the other, oracu larly. "Who was it?-' asked the querist. "'Is wife's first husband!" was the reply. '

MEDITATIONS OF A COW. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
MEDITATIONS OF A COW. Here 1 am, just a scrub cow, but what do I care. I have a good home. To be sure, the wind blows in through the cracks in winter, and, as I don't get enough feed to both keep me warm and make milk-too, I just natur ally don't make the milk. What do I care? A cow has to look out for her self. I just lay off and take a vacation for three or four months during the ' winter. Old, dry cornstalks don't taste very good anyway, and, besides, a cow isn't supposed-to kill herself giving milk. Evidently the boss keeps me just to look at. He says he always did like to see a good, slick-looking cow, and does not like to milk in the winter 1 anyway, and, besides, he thinks- there is no money in dairying if a man counts his time worth any thing. Of course, after my calf is born, I give a big mess of milk for a little while, but what is the use of keeping , it up when I can live without work . by just looking nice all the time. The other day I came down to the barn about three ...
STOCKTAKING. Valuation of Stock and Plant. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
STOCKTAKING. Valuation of Stock and Plant. If you ask a farmer, stockbreeder, or man engaged in other rural .indus tries, whether he has an annual stock taking as is the case in all commer cial undertakings, perhaps not one in a hundred will answer in the af firmative. The nearest approach to it is done by the sheepbreeder, and in a less degree by owners of horses, cattle, pigs, poultry, etc. • Evt-.n ihe financial institutions who o.va iarge properties do not do it in as thorough a manner as, for instance, the large drapery establishments in a city. Yet a complete system of bookkeeping is as neie.ssary with tme as with the other,"/iV a man wants to know the exact state of his financial position. Many a man has landed himself into financial difficulties through not hav ing kept a proper account of his in comings and outgoings. It is a mistake to think that the man on the land is less liable to fin ancial losses by defaulting creditors than the city man. Mo gets hit just as hard and ...

SOIL BACTERIA AND THEIR ACTION ON PHOSPHATE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
SOIL BACTERIA AND THEIR ACTION ON -PHOSPHATE. It has been known £or some time that insoluble phosphate in the soil is rendered soluble by the acids formed through the agency o£ certain kinds of bacteria. Mr. Koch made a series yf investigations to throw more deiinite light on the subject. He experiment ed with a variety of phosphates .of ditferent degrees of solubility, and claims to have demonstrated— (1) That bacteria, iu consequence of acid formations, convert insoluble phosphate into a condition soluble in water. (2) In presence of substances in the soil, such as carbonate of lime, carbonate of magnesia, ammonia, act ing as bases, the bacteria begin by acting on them, and only afterwards exert their dissolving influence on the phosphoric acid. (3) Bacteria act on all phosphates, ; but their degree of activity is vari able according to the character of the phosphate. , (4) The phosphoric acid in basic slag is rendered available very eas ! ily. j (5) The goou results obtained by j...
THE INFLUENCE OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
THE1 INFLUENCE OF CHILDREN. The motives to exertion furnished by the possession of a family of chil dren are is powerful as ever moved heart or hind. The secret of many a struggle and triumph in life's battle may 'be found at home in the shape of an infant in its mother's lap. The man who has children dependent on him will—must—struggle manfully, and bear up against the most adverse circumstances. The thought that the joy of their innocent young lives de pends upon his courage, liis persever ance, his energy—this thought will enable him to work wonders, to achieve what will appear impossibili ties to the man who has only his own selfish needs, his own selfish ambi tion, to urge him on.

PIGS FOR NEW COUNTRIES. British Types to Choose From. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 3 October 1914
PIGS FOR NEW COUNTRIES. British Types to Choose From. There Is no foundation stock for suc cessful pig-raising (writes Mr. G. T. Burrows) like the well-defined breeds of Great Britain which, in their own way, are built to suit both the taste of any neighborhood and the pocket of the farmer who is stepping out o? the rut of the grade breeder to a full fledged pedigree stock-keeper. Told tersely, the varieties of British pigs can be counted upon one hand, but their values are unrealisablc. A par ticular pet of the North of England farmer is the Large White, which, ori ginally bred in Yorkshire, is the larg est British white breed. It has a rather long white coat on a white skin, which occasionally shows a few blue spots. The head is moderately long, snout broad, face slightly dished and wide between the ears, and jowl not too heavy. The tail is set high, hang ing perpendicularly, long and stout, with a tassel of fine hair. Its chief characteristics are a strong constitu tion, immense ...
