DON'T WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 2 July 1914
DON'T WORRY. Live in the present, deal with the present, master the present, make the most and &lt;best of the passing hour, and don't wnste it by distressful re grets about the past, or paralysing fears about the future. Grip the ever present now. By this thorough-going concentration on to-day you are most completely redeeming your yester days, and doing your best for your possible but uncertain to-morrows. It is of no use crying over spilt milk; it is of 110 use to grieve concern ing what is absolutely inevitable or irretrievable, and because the events and relationships of your life will not run smoothly. If you have done your best, an angel could do 110 more. If you have an evil day approach ing, an unpleasant hour in front of you, or any kind of disagreeable duty 1 or engagement whatever, meet it without delay. It is better, as a rule, to voluntarily face it sooner, than be compelled to do so later. Be like the man in the moon—he sees a lot 'but never says a word.

WHY YOU SHOULD MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 2 July 1914
WHY YOU SHOULD MARRY. We deplore the fact that, because of the fearful extravagances of modern society, many of our best people con clude that they cannot possibly afford to get married. We are getting a fearful crop of old bachelors. They swarm around us. They go through life lop-sided. Half-dressed, they sit around sewing 011 buttons, and darning socks, and then so down to a long boarding house table which is bounded on the north and south and east and west by the Great Sahara Desert. We do not pity them »t all. May all their buttons be off tc-morrow evening! Why do they not set up a plain home of their own and come into the Ark two by two? The supporting of a wife is looked upon as a great horror. Why, dear .friends, with right and healthy no tions of time and eternity, it is very easy to support a wife if she be of the kind worth supporting. If she be educated into false notions of refine ment, and have "young ladies' Col lege" piled on her head till she be an imbecile, you will...

PIG MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 2 July 1914
PIG MEMS. Get the sows aud little pigs out on the ground as soon as possible. The shelters should be in good con dition, and warm, dry beds o£ cut straw provided. The shelters should be so construct ed that when the sows and little pigs are in them they will be protected from wind and wet. The pens should be closed on three sides and open to the south. Don't leave the pigs out in the cold. Do not let them become thin and emaciated.
COLOR OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 2 July 1914
COLOR OF MILK. The color of milk will vary with the breed of cow yielding the milk, and the feeding the cow receives. Some foods have the effect of giving til milk a good flavor, and other kinds of food just the reverse. The natural color of milk is due to the coloring matter, "lactochrome," pre sent in the foutterfat. Milk is paler iu color during winter or when the animals are given dry feed. Rich col oring milk yields butter of a deep yellow color when it is well made. Several faults in the making of but ter cause much of the color to dis appear, and this should be guarded against.

IS CLIPPING SAFE? [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 2 July 1914
IS CLIPPING SAFE? It is not uncommon among dairy cows to find the udder covered with a dense growth o£ long hairs, which, although they may be of some protec tion to the udder, nevertheless, from the standpoint of sanitation and com fort to the cow during milking, are a detriment. Under ordinary farm con ditions they are generally covered with filth, and even in the best-kept dairies, unless clipped, collect some dust and filth. Furthermore, because of their location, it is highly probable that some of them will find their way into the milk pail during milking. In order that such condtions may not oc cur, these liairs should be clipped close once or twice each year, there by preventing collection of filth and permitting greater ease in washing the udder. „

MANURING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 2 July 1914
MANURING POTATOES. Potatoes, like all other crops, re quire a complete manure, viz., a ma nure containing nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash, lime also if the soil is deficient in this necessary consti tuent. Nitrogen may be used in var ious forms—blood and bone, sulphate of ammonia, or nitrate of soda. If the first is used, it is better to apply it at the time ol' planting, as it is much slower in its action than either of the others; the sulphate of am monia is sometimes applied at plant ing time also, but it is better applied afterwards as a top dressing when the plants are two or three inches high. With regard to nitrate of soda, this is so extremely soluble that it should only be applied when the crop is near ly ready for earthing up. Phosphates may be used in various forms, super, bonedust. or slag, according to the nature of the soil or the particular fancy of the user. In any case, a lib eral dressing is necessary. Potash is best applied in the form of sulphate of potash, ...

FOR THE FARMER. BETTER FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 2 July 1914
FOR THE FARMER. BETTER FARMING. More and more careful systematic methods of farming are rapidly gain ing ground in this country. The in cre ised price of land makes such es sential to success, and 110 known sys tem will put farming on a better basis than following Nature's method of keeping up the fertility of the land, and in a great measure this is what green- manuring is. Dame Nature had no plough to turn under the fall ing leaves of the bush hills, but she left time to do tbe work, and it is the accumulated humus so formed from which our bush farmers are reaping their returns to-day. On much of our land fertilisers will 'be required to produce a good crop for ploughing in, for it is poor econ omy to plough in a poor one. Jloney so spent will be returned a hundred fold, and the permanent fertility of the land built up. On heavy land the ploughing in of such crops as peas, vetches, clover, etc., is particularly valuable, for doing so often converts an unkindly diflicult-to-work la...

CHAPTER XX. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 2 July 1914
CHAPTER XX. Ou August 2 Peter Bellairs saw his wife off to Melbourne. He had got her an excellent berth, her maid ac companied her, and she was surround ed by every comfort. She had plenty of money and a good outfit, and she was going to see the person whom she loved best in the wide world. Yes, of late she felt that she loved Ralph 'better even than her husband, for Bellairs, though kind, was cold and had ceased to show her those little at tentions and to utter those words of affection which used to fill her heart. Even at the moment of parting he re mained a distinguished and somewhat hard figure, but his wife, a woman of small brains, had made up her mind that he had never discovered the theft of the diamonds, or he would assur edly have spoken to her on the sub ject, and that at the end of a year he would be as glad as in the old days to welcome her back to Sunnyside. At the very last Bellairs forced himself to kiss the woman, whom he regarded as a thief, on her forehead. He sai...
