TIHE WINNIWOG MIOVE. 3Y RAYMfUND ALLEN. (COPYRIGHT.] As Grant passed along the hall of the -Bull Hotel in the assize town whei'e cir cuit business called him, a young woman rose from the corner and came towards hiln with quick steps. "I beg your pardon, but I think you are Mr. Grant." She spoke with an educated, distinct voice,, and her manner betrayed a struggle between shyness and a certain eager anxiety. HIer face struck Grant at once as beautiful, and there was a troubled appeal in her eyes that caught his attention. "Yes, my name is Qrant. Can I do any thing for you?" "Mr. Marlin tells-me that you are going to defend my brother at the assizes. He is our solicitor."

TWENTY MILLION HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
: TWENTY MILLION IHOR SES Whilst' complaints are pretty general ini America-as to the injury sustained by the horse breeding industry of that country in consequence of the effects of unfavorable legislation, it is interest;ng to notice from official returns that horses and mules a.re the only animals there"which do' not show. decreased numbers. The complaints refer more particularly to blood stock. Accord ing to the figures given by the Washington Agricultural department,; there were, 'at the beginning of this year, 20,567,000 horses in the United States, as compared- with 20,509,000 at the, commencement of 1912. Values, too, were well maintained, being £22 16/10 per head, as against £21 16/11 in the previous twelve months: This pro gress is considered satisfactory, especially in. view of the ever increasing use of motor driven vehicles. for farm and other. work. In spite of, that comnpetition horses more than hold their own. Notable horse States are Iowa, with 1,563.000; Illinois, ...

A lavish enough railway service enabled a thousand or two mnembers aiid supporters of the league to travel to" the place in comfort, and in the bright weather, tempered by fresh breezes off the waters of the Bay, they spent the day in quiet ple~sities.

INFLUENCE OF BRITISH STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 3 January 1914
INFLUENCE OF BRITISH. STOCK. When a comparison is made between the amount paid by Great Britain for imported meat and the sum received by home breed ers for pedigree sltck sent -abroad, the :figures are certainly disappointing from dne point of view, on account of the vast ness. of the former and the comparative smallnes of the latter. If, ho6irevcr, the question, is further considered it ivill `be recognised. that the one is, very closely as sociated with the other .: .There can be little doubt that if it had not been for the influence of British stock practically none of the countries that have developed meat production" on an extensive scale wolild have been able to do so. It has been the pure bred cattle, sheep and pigs that have been exported from the .United Kingdom that have enabled native stocks.in distant re gions to be .improved as they have been. The original herds and flocks of those countries would have been of little use for the purpose; it would have taken many genera...

The tents are situated on a cleared spot ibetween Mentone and Mor dialloc. The idea was introduced three years ago, and the interest has so increased that 67 young men and boys were enjoying the fresh air by the sea under proper con ditions. When the lads return, albout an equal number of girls will take their places. Each batch is under the control ot selected officers, and the whole t?hing demonstrates what can be done by a well organised and managed camp under cor reet influences. The appetites of the lade may 'be judged by the fact that each day the camp consumes 36 lb. meat, 10 large aoaeves, 10 tins jam and 10 dozen rock cakes, to say notShing of the other ordinary articles of diet. Needless to say, there is nothing in the way of drink stronger 'than tea and cordials. The latter are not included in the modest charge of 10/ for the w...

PROTECT YOUR OWN INTERESTS BY PACKING YOUR GOODS IN THE MOST RELIABLE BOX, Wire bound boxes are now very largec.y used for the packing of butter, and have proved in this connection of unique value. They have prevented pilfering, and by their lighter weight have made substantial savings possible in railway freights. Fur thermore, the system of construction em ployed renders them particularly strong. The reinforcement effected by the wire causes a light box to be much less liable to breakage than one constructed solely out of a heavier wood. The principle can be profitably extended to fruit cases, and orchardists are strongly advised to give our wire bound fruit case a trial. At, Glenormiston the local milk powder factory is packing its output in wire bound boxes that, contain a hundredweight, and the management speaks favorably of the xew departure.

A strong wind arose during the night, playing havoc with many of the tents. Altogether there are about 100 men and boys in camp, and the big field service marquee and the sur rounding tents look very impressive.

A concert programme was arranged for Christ mas night,. and this, together with camp fire yarns and scouting games, made an enjoyable evening. The camp was open for vi...
