Selection and Core of Seed Maize. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 5 February 1908

Selection and Care of Seed I Maize. The importance of properly selecting and caring for- seed maize (writes A. T. j: Wianekoof the Purdue Agricultural '. University, TJ.S.A.) has been so. tho , roughly discussed and brought to the at ' tentlon of farmers In every conceivable : ; . ?. ,,way, during the last few years that there ' -can be no adequate excuse for any maize ' grower neglecting to save a good supply Of seed and put it up in a safe, dry place before killing trusts occur. There - is plenty of evidence to convince even the ^ ,:_' most unreasonable man that the time \ to vet the best 'seed maize ie earlv In j Ike autumn, when It can be selected I . from the standing stalks and put away I ^ in a dry, well-ventilated place. i .The great majority of farmers do not get more than three-quarters of a' full ? stand of maize in their fields, and the ?

According to the 'Chronicle,' a well-known engineer, the Inventor of ^ the moving platform which was the source of so much wonder at the last Paris Exhibition, proposes adapting this principle to a section of the Paris foot paths.. He suggests that a portion of ? U ~* tlia fnnfnnthD in fhfi nrlnplfifll thoroughfares for, say a third ot their width, should be fitted with this travel ling platform.

HOW TO BE HAPPY. SIR ALMA TADEMA'S DAUGHTER. WILL TEACH AMERICANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 5 February 1908

HOW TO BE HAPPY. SIR ALMA TADEMA'S DAUGHTER. WILL TEACH AMERICANS. The New York correspondent of the 'Dally Mail' wrote, on 18th Novem ber:— Miss Laurence Alma Tadema, daugh ter of the celebrated painter, was en thusiastically welcomed on her arrival to-day in New YorR. She comes here to deliver in various parts of America a series of lectures on happiness. She bore the ideal of being Inter-' viewed to-day on board ship bravely, observing, with a bright smile, 'Hap- piness consists in managing oneself.' This seemed to puzzle the interviewers, , .?; who asked if happiness came unsought, ? . and if married people could be happy .r-;tsjj since jthey usually managed 'each ':ptter,,;U^:^ -?/Ma^a^'^he;jBpUrf,gSd6i^^J|^^^^g dividual?' -queried the ? -,1nfei^w«pj.%.S|^ 'Yes,' .ehe replied.

FROM CAPE TO CAIRO A LADY'S PLUCKY JOURNEY. WONDERS OF DARKEST AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 5 February 1908

FROM CAPE TO CAIRO 'i tt. LADY'S PLUCKY JOUBNBY. WONDERS OP DARKEST AFRICA. The journey from Cape to Cairo is no small matter, even for a seasoned traveller, and Hiss Alary Hall may certainly be proud of having accom plished the feat. She tells us (says the ' Westminster Gazette') in the introduction of her book, in which she relates her experiences of her journey, that she is the first woman , of any nationality who has accom plished the entire journey, which gives additional interest to ner narrative. Miss Hall docs well not to dwell on the better-known fea tures of thu journey and to reserve her space for a description of the Africa of Livingstone and Stanley. We shall, however, flod a good de scription of the Victoiia Falls and a journey to Bulawayo in the first part of the first chapter, which is in troductory to the journey through Central Africa. The first trip, which was taken in the year previous to the greater trek, gave Miss Hall the information which she desired. It was ...

SOLVED AT LAST. A SOCIAL PROBLEM. THE BUOYANT BALLOON. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 5 February 1908

SOLVED AT LAST. A SOCIAL PROBLEM. * THE BUOYANT BALLOON. Tint baffling social problem, what to do with the old lady who makes a fuss about crossing the road and retires to the cellar when it thunders, Is solved at last, and very simply, by Mrs Asshe ton Harbord, who says in the columns ot 'The Reader' that ballooning Is 'neither unpleasant nor unsafe, even to the novice.' We read:— ' 'There Is no feeling of giddiness or nausea in a balloon, and, so far from be ing conscious of being at a great height. you might, for any sensation of that kind, be firmly planted In an arm-chair in your own house. Moreover, balloon-' ing is one of the safest sports in the world. At all events, it Is Infinitely less dangerous than hunting, yachting or motoring.' And there was a man killed playing dlabDlo last week. 'Much is heard nowadays of various 'rest cures,' ' says Mrs Harbord, 'but I can Imagine no more soothing oint ment for lacerated nerves or weary brain than a voyage in a balloon.' This is' t...

The typical American mule had a rival on September 20th, in a case of a bora at Charing Cross, which for pure 'cussedness' in staying power couM have given points to Its Transatlantic relative.

With a large number the handling Is a dreaded operation, and Is often put off too long for best results. It is. im- possible In a short article to write a bee book, but I will try to show (states a writer in the 'Rural New Yorker') how . anyone may handle bees with confidence. If not With lmDunltv. The honey bee has been domesticated for ages, and has been the subject of much superstition because of the fact that man was afraid of stings. Not knowing the InstlnctB of the bee, man was not able to learn their secrets. With the invention of the frame hive In 1852, by Mr iianstroth, began an era of investigation that has made bee-keeping one of the , best of rural occupations or Hiose who have studied and made It a business. \ I am often told of some one who will take bees by the handful and do all : Sorts of things with them, and great wonder is shown that h« is not badly st...
