"One day an entire stranger pulled up at my stall, and purchased some nuts. I pocketed the half-crown he tr tiered, counting out into his hand t— and fourpence change. "No sooner had I finished than ho exclaimed: 'This won't do!' And he slammed the florin down on the stall.

AMUSING iNCIDEftTS. The American papers :ive publish ing stories of Dr. Weir Mitchell. This is one of the test of fierr.: — One day a patient came into his ofiice and found him closing a large bundle of letters. "All resignations from committees or boards," lie snid, gleefully.

To avoid this fish-rearers in China care fully collect spawn from the surface of the water, and when they have se cured a sufficient quantity they take a number of hena' eggs, the contents of which liavo been carefully emptied through a small aperture, and refill the shells with the spawn. The holes we then sealed up and the eggs put under broody hens. The hens are al lowed to incubate the eggs for a cer tain number of days, when the eggs ure again broken and their contents Put into water that has been pre viously warmed by the sun. In a very f=!iort Bpace of time the spawn hatches, -•'id the young fry are then kept in pure fresh water until they attain a sufficient size to be put into the ponds containing older fish. The Chinese have long understood all the Intricacies of incubation, and "ore amongst the first to use incuba tors for the batching of hen eggs, long before such machines were m...

A RAILWAY EXPERIENCE TRAVELLING IN INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 29 July 1914

A RAILWAY EXPERIENCE TRAVELLING IN INDIA. This amusing experience on an Iu dian railway is related by a writer m "Blackwood's: — "Personally, I cannot sleep under a bright light, or indeed under any light at all. I was much annoyed, there fore, when we were safely bedded down, and the tram had started, to : llnd that I could not put thelight out. However, an old traveller is seldom j at a loss. After tossing about for [ half an hour in a vain courtship of sleep I rose, and, with some difficulty, succeeded in securing a decent ob scurity by buttoning my trousers ovor one lamp and hitching my wife's skirt over the other. Then, following the good example which she had alread) set, I fell asleep. i "At some place which we reached about 3 a.m. there seemed to be an unusual scurrying of slippered feet. on the platform and much excitod chatter, as of those who seek room ; and find it not. Some local festival no doubt or marriage feast was setting the country folk astir. The door of our car...

Suppose you tell him this new farth ing is a half-sovereign, and send him across to the rolice-statlon for change. It will be a fine bit of fun." Smartman laughed, and replied: "Glorious, glorious! Send him here, landlord, at once." "Well, John, would you like to earn a shilling?" queried Smartman. John grinned, and said "e'd werry much like to 'ave the charnse." "Well, look here, old chap, just take this half-sovereign across to the police-station ant! ask Sergeant Sleepio to oblige me with silver. You can deduct a shilling for your trou ble."

FOR THE FARMER. FARM JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 29 July 1914

FOR THE FARMER. FARM JOTTINGS. Public prosperity is like a tree. Ag riculture is its roots; manufacturers und commerce are its branches and haves. If the roots suffer the leaves fall, the branches wither, and the tree dies. Well-built, efficient fences, kept in ''epair, not only place an important appearance value on a farm, but they My substantially in protection to crops and stock. The country has oue trade—farm ing—and every country boy has some 'undamental stock of knowledge. Why not adopt the sensible plan of grafting his education upon it? Quiet firmness is important in hand ling horses. The cool assurance of a masterful horseman produces an im mediate effect upon the nerves and behavior of a fractious team.

TWIN-BEARING EWES. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 29 July 1914

TWIN-BEARING EWES. A remarkable line of investigation, which is of great interest to sheep breeders, is being pursued by Sir Alexander U. Bell, at one time geolo gist of the Dominion of Canada, on his farm in Nova Scotia. For some ten or twelve years he has been endeavoring to fix a breed of sheep having four or six ' milking teats, and producing twins at a birth. Me noticed that the proportion of sheep having four developed nipples was larger among twin-producing ewes, and this started him on his quest for a co-relation between the two. In a few years he produced a strain of ewes which had, as a normal condition, four teats of nearly equal size, all yielding milk, by mating four nippled ewes with four-nippled rams. Reversion seldom occurred, and when the strain was once established these ewes were found to be as fertile as ordinary shpep, if not more eo.

CHAPTER XIII. The Baser Metal. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 29 July 1914

CHAPTER XIII. The Baser Metal. Outside, the incessant growl of the busy London street, the occasional shrill cry of a newsboy, the louder "toot-toot" of a motor, the confused babble of voices—these were the sounds that reached the ears of the girl as she flung herself down on an arm-chair in a poky little room in Cur zon-street. The brown London ■ fog, thick anil almost tangible, clung to her like a garment, and the beautiful face was marred by a look of irritability. A young man lurfched in after her, and with unsteady hand, turned up the bare gas jet "Give me a cigarette, old boy," said the girl, leaning back in her chair, "this fog is choking me." He held out a lighted match, and she blew the cloud of fragment smoke playfully in his face. He blinked his eyes, but never smiled at the pleas antry.
