THOUGHTS THAT KILL The Power of the Mind over the Body. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

THOUGHTS THAT KILL. The Power of the Mind over the Body. Most people believed tliat any change In the chemical composition, so far as change is possible, is due to the food we consume find the air we breathe which is food of another kind, but science is now explaining to us that our thoughts must be taken into the reckoning. The analysis of the constituents of the human frame shows that, reduced to tiie base, our body is composed of oxygen and nitrogen combined in vary ing proportions with carbon, iron, lime and several other elements. An increase in the amount of nitro gen, or a .liminution in the quantity of r,xygeu, will bring about disease and dentil. Now, all good thoughts tend to increase the quantity of oxygen, and in that way to reline the body and make it healthy; whereas evil thoughts have the contrary effect of augment ing the quantity of nitrogen, with the [ result that the organism is more 01 less injured. By "good" thoughts science means any reflection or sentiment tha...

WEIGHT OF SILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

WEIGHT OF SILAGE. Silage always loses some in weight, due to evaporation from the top, but the main part of the settling is due to the simple packing down of the silage in the silo. Ordinary silage weighs about 45 pounds to the cubic foot after it has settled in the silo. A silo 12 x 24 feet holds approximate ly 55 tons, or 110,000 pounds of corn silage.

NOT ALWAYS CORRECT. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

NOT ALWAYS CORRECT. "I knew ho was a man of poworfui character, because lie had an aquiline nose," said a lady, describing to some friends :i person she had wet. "That," said a physiognomist, who was present, "is a popular itlcs, hut it is not always a correct one. i have In my employ a man with a nose al most as prominent aud aquiline as that of the great Duke of Wellington, yet lie is of a feeble and yielding dis position. "The explanation is n; simple one. He has a weak mouth, and a small receding chin, and firmness' of char acter is shown in the face, chiefly by mouth and chin. "Where you see a massive jaw you can always'safely assume-a strong will, and i( this feature is allied with a large,'-prominent.' nose, there is cer-; tain to be except iona I force of charac ter. But the nose alone is not'a re liable. guide." . •

HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? We get i'rom the land what we put into it. If we build permanently we will be sheltered in later days; if we plant wisely we will read the content ment in the shade of the next genera tion. If a farm is regarded as merely a cold, money malting enterprise we miss the harvest of good living in later years; but if we regard the farm as a home and cultivate those essen tials of satisfying living, comforts, trees and flowers, and things of beauty wo reap a perennial' harvest in the ripe years of old age when such things come to have a value far be yond grains and fat beasts.

SOME GOOD PROVERBS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

SOP/IE GOOD PROVERBS. A man must plough with such oxen as lie hath. A wager is a fool's argument. A young idler makes an old beggai. Against fate tlie carter cracks liU whip in vain. Always at it wins the (lay. An open door may tempt a saint. - An ounce of disorotion is ..worth a pound of wit. ' '; A clear conscience Is a coat of mail. A dry cough is the trumpeter of death. ~~A friend's frown Is better than a fool's smile. A living dog is better than a dead Hon. The devil tempts all men, but an idle man tempts She devil. An idle brain is the devil's work shop.

SOME BULL'S EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

SOME BULL'S EYES. How the weeds do like the warm days after rain. Hit 'era a clip the minute tliey stick up their heads. A rickety fence is a standing invita tion for stock to break through. A staple or a post in time saves temper. It is just as good a thing for the farmer to hang up his barn broom as it is for his wife to do so with her broom. The farmer who makes drudges of his mother and sisters won't worry be cause his wife splits the kindling and carries in the coal. The man who wins is the man who can turn everything, even to an old tin can with a hole in the bottom, to some account. The only certain way to find out what sort of cows we have is to test them. ■ Sometimes the results are very disappointing and we may wisli we had not done it, but in the end it is greatly to our advantage. The limitations in farming are few er than in any other occupation of which we have any knowledge. The soil is a complex substauce, but it has almost unlimited possibilities, when managed by sk...

CAN YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

CAN YOU? Some men seem to have such a good idea of balance that they can pick a long ladder up in the middle, the first pop. Others can't, and so they try it a good while and waste a lot of strength.' Just tako those ladders now, balance them, and put a stripe of different colored paint right around the side pieces at the right place. Or, paint the round at the pivotal point some color other than that of the rest o£ the ladder.

Fat in the Diet. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

Fat In the Diet. Physiological considerations wouid Imply that many minor ills of the body would be avoided if only care were taken to include a sufficiency of fat in the diet. Fat, wo luiow, is about the most compact form of fuel which we possess, while it exercises a favor able effect upon the processes of tlia Intestinal tract. In excessively cold countries a rich, fatty diet Is Indis pensable, for fat is the only food sub stance which will rapidly replace the heat lost by the body, and travellers in the Arctic regions have related that they could only be kept warm and com fortable by a generous supply of fatty food, in comparison with which the effect of extra clothing was inappre ciable. The tendency of today in many quarters is to exclude as much as possible the fatty portions of ani mal foods. Pieces of Tat are carefully cut off the slice of ham, mutton, or beef, and only the lean parts are eaten. Indeed, for some unaccount able reason, the eatinu of fat is re garded by not a...

"Ah, well, I don't blame you, old fellow! Wish I had your resolution. But, then, it's not a matter of resolution alto gether; you haven't acquired the habit.

AGRICULTURE. TEST YOUR SEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

AGRICULTURE. TEST YOUR SEEDS. Testing clover, grass seed, etc.: Take two common plates and get two pieces of cotton cloth about the size of the plates. Dip the cloths into warm water and spread one of thom on a plate. Take a handful from the seed that is to be tested and place it on the table. Count out 100 seeds. Scatter these upon the wet cloth on the plate. Spread the other cloth over the ^eed and press it down. Then turn the other plate upside down on the plate with the seeds, leaving the cor ners of the cloths sticking out between the plates. Plueo where it is reason ably warm, and keep the cloths moist by sprinkling with water two or three times a day. Keep a record of the number of seeds that have sprouted each day, until no more seeds show signs of life. A week is as long as this should take. If ninety to ninety fivo seeds grow, the germination is pretty good, but below ninety the value of the seed begins to be doubt ful.

THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. According to j\Ir. Gilbert, author of "Fortunes for Farmers," spiritless Hodge is to be supplanted by an alert blue-smocked engineer, who will re ceive good wages and do the work of ten men, and be worth a hundred. If this be the type of man who is to do the tillage of the future, he will re quire a standard wage as will enable liim to live in a good dwelling, and thus the rural housing problem will soon solve itself! Mr. Gilbert has evidently a warm heart for small holdings, but pertinently says, "they cannot be established anywhere—only on better soils can th°y succeed."

VIM OF THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

VIM OF THE FARMER. The farmer's vim shows in getting at the work the minute It is ready. Shows, too, in the way he pushes that work. Ono day on and two days off point to failure in the near future. Vim shows, also, in the pride a man puts into his work. Some men show by their very faces that they love their work and are hound to do it just right. They are the ones that come out at the head of the heap. Vim keeps a man's heart bright and cheery. Takes a pretty good man to whistle just as cheerily when it rains as when it shines! The man with true vim in his heart can do it, and he will do it. Any men with vim down your way?

SNAIL'S REAL PACE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 18 June 1914

SNAIL'S REAL PACE. "At a snail's pace" is a common expression, and usually signifies a very slow speed. But what do you suppose is tlie actual pace made by a snail in travelling? We can givo it in accurate figures. One loot in four minutes, or at the rate of one mile in sixteen days, if travelling continuously. These are the figures given by Geo. Zahnizer, a civil engineer, taken from actual observation. A short time since Mr. Zahnizer .was. waiting for a train at a country sta tion. He had nothing in particular to do, and "killed a little time" by tim ing a snail which was creeping along the ground. That snail travelled just exactly one foot in four minutes. Mr. Zah nizer has figured out that it would re quire sixteen days for that snail to move a mile. Messrs. Stone and Co., meat sales men, Metropolitan Meat Market, Mel bourne, report that prices have been ruling high. During the first week of this month they obtained up to 7%d. per pound for porkers (prime small), and for prime l...
