CATTLE TICK. xne loss to cattle men in the United States through the cattle tick is esti mated by the Federal Government authorities to be £5,000,000 a year.

COLIC DRENCH FOR HORSES. I Almost every veterinary surgeon ' has Ilia own special formula for colic , drench, and thus the contents of the j bottle varies according to the Ideas of | the prescriber, and, to some extent at j least, according to what he conceives | to be the requirements of the case. If : you want a formula for a colic drink to keep by you for use in emergencies, the followiug will be suitable:—Tinc ture of opium, 1 ounce; oil of turpen tine, 2 ounces; linseed oil, to 1 pint. Give this as it is, followed by a little warm gruel. Walk the horse about to prevent his rolling, rub the belly with a wisp, and, if necessary, re [ peat the drench in two hours, but not more than two doses should be given. Understand that it is not claimed that this recipe is better than any other. It may not even be the most suitable under all circumstances, but it is in expensive, easily procured, will keep good for any length of time if properly corked and sealed, and often cuts short an atta...

In Reserve. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 January 1914
In Reserve. At a Highland gathering 0110 Donald MacT.ean had entered for a number of events. The first of these was a quar ter-mile. Of eight runners ho was last. "Donald, Donald," cried a partisan, "why did ye no run faster?" Don ild sneered. "Run faster?" ho said contemptuously. "An' me reser vin' myself for the bagpipe competi tion !" A Mr. Smoker, of New Jersey, has been hiccoughing for a fortnight. He must feel very s-hic of it by. this time. Twenty-six sovereigns were found in a crocodile shot in Swaziland.- There is more money in big game than we thought. Three scientists -who descended the crater of Vesuvius say that a serious eruption is imminent. This, in sport ing parlance, is "inside information."' Do not ask opinions of candid people unless you are braced for a jolt now and then. i

DEREEL DESTRUCTIVE FIRE. On Saturday last a very destruc tive fire broke out in the ranges near Dereel. The origin of the out break is rather mysterious, but it is supposed that owing to tho escape of gases from a retort a combustion took place, and set fire to 7 cords of wood close by. The day was very wam, and the timber burned like matchwood, and soon began to spread, sweeping everything in its path. The burning timber and un &nbsp; dergrowth carried the flames into the paddocks of Messrs Boyle, T. &nbsp; | Cherry. W. Laidler, W. Haley, E. &nbsp; Jacka, A. Thornton, on to Wuirook homestead.

PITFIELD PROSPECTING CO. The half-yearly report of the dir ectoro of the Pitfield Prospecting Association has beou issued, and is as follows ;—"In submitting our re port the Directors would like to have been able to present a more satisfactory one in regard to pro specting work, but we have met with several reverses fhat have re tarded progress. Since receiving the Government Grant of £200 on the pound for pound basis, we com pleted the sinking of the shaft, cen tred same, opened out, and have driven RO feet through reef. On boring up to wash we touched same at about 12 feet, getting a few colors of gold. Wo then put up a rise, and opened out just below the wash. (At this period we increased the capital of the Company by £2 per share). After drivinp 10 feet we got a burst of water which proved too 6trong for the horses. The directors then decided to put in a pump, a draw-lift being the one selected, and an oil engine to drive same, These took longer to instal than was ex pected. Aft...

SEED MAIZE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 February 1914
SEED MAIZE. It is important that only such ears be selected as have acquired the habit of ripening 011 time. Also, care should be taken not to neglect seotl ears from plants or varieties will yield less corn than those which use the entile sea son. However, the intelligent selec tion of .seed corn in the iield as ma turity approaches, is helpful if it takes 11.to consideration the imuiedato envi ronment, particularly tho stand ol plants. A plant growing in a hill with two other plants should bo rated much higher for having produced an ear of a given weight than a plant glowing in a hill by itself, soil coiulitons being the same. Jn other words, the selecton of seed corn should be made in the field where the growing plants may bo con sidered in connection with their envir onment, and plants growing under less than normal stand or extra normal con ditions of any sort should, thereby, bo disqualified, save in exceptional cases. A larger number of cars than are need ed should be selecte...

PARSONS AND HUNTING VIEW OF ARCHBISHOP OF YORK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 February 1914
PARSONS AND HUNTING VIEW OF ARCHBISHOP OF YORK. In dedicating on Sunday at Mior Monkton Ciiurch a memorial window to the late Rev. Charles Slingsliy, who was killed while hunting, the Arch bishop or York defended the associa tion between hunting and tlio life of the professing Christian (says the "Daily News''.of November IS). He would bo a very bold man, naid the Archbishop, who would argue tliat hunting was so cruel that it was abso lutely wrong. "It is very difficult to express an opinion," said Mr James Buckland, when seen on the subjcct by a " Daily , News" representative. "The advocates of the sport argue that it brings a ^reat ileal of money into the country, and. again, tile existence of the fox depcwls largely upon it. It Is a question whe ther it is better that the fox should l>e shot by the farmers on sight or bred for hunting purposes." If hunting were to cease, in a few years the fox would bo exterminated. Mr Buckland said he was acquainted with a charming clergyman ...
