No object is so trivial, no p]aco so baro that tho child's divino faculty of idealising is not ablo to transform it into something beautiful or interest ing. We call this- imagination; in reality it is true suggestion, tho concentration of tho child's ^ con sciousness, upon tho ideal condition ho Avishes to create and tho inhibition of counter-suggestions, even of tho direct testimony* of his senses.

The method te as follows.:-The food, when cramming .by pellets,-should be rolled up into bol uses or balls, about a couple of inches long,-and half an inch thick.

SEASONABLE HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 1 January 1909
SEASONABLE HINTS. Every poultry keeper should keep an . account of his Income and expenditure. He then knows whether tho Industry la payable or not. By'^a simple system of bookkeeping the owner will know exactly-what every item costs; He can"then see where a. reduction may be effected.' An industry of any kind should not be continued if not returning a profit. Give oxtra care and attention to the young and stowing stock during the present month. The warm weather af fects young birds to a considerable ex tent. Its effects may be minimised by the provision of plenty of shade and shelter, and a supply of cool fresfr water everyday. \ % A system of marking chickens should be practised by the poultry-keeper who conducts his business on proper lines... Tho age, strain, ami breeding of .the young stock can easily be determined, ' and mating'and selection-will'be easier and^more certain. v Tfiere are several methods of marking poultry.

ORIGIN OF VEGETABLES. INTERESTING INFORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 8 January 1909
ORIGIN OF VEGETABLES. INTERESTING INFORMATION. The potato, which "was already culti vated in America when the continent was discovered, was introduced to Eu rope* in 1580 and 1685 by the Spaniards. Almost at the same tiine it was brought by the English, who secured it in Vir ginia, where it appeared about 1550. Tho sweet potato and the Jerusalem artichoke are also supposed to come from America. Salsify is found in a wild state in Greece, Dalmalia, Italy and Algeria. According to Olivier de Serres, it has been cultivated in the south of France since.the sixteenth century. Turnips and radishes came originally from central Europe. The beet root and the beetK which have been greatly Improved by cultivation, are considered the same species by botanists. The beet, only the stalk of which Is eaten, grows wild in the Mediterranean, Persia and Babylonia. Garlic, onions, shalots and leeks have long been cultivated In almost all coun tries.

DRIED POTATOES. DEALING WITII GLUTS. EUROPEAN EXPERIMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 8 January 1909
DRIED POTATOES. DEALING WITII GLUTS. EUROPEAN EXPERIMENTS. j According to tho September estimates of tho British Board of Agriculture, tho most successful crop of the year in Bri tain will be the potato crop. There is a. promise (writes the "Mark X«ano 13x-! press") of a very full crop. The result will bo a glut of potatoes and unremu ncratlve prices; this tendency Is already reflected In the principal potato mar kets. In such a position the problem Is forced to the front, whether It would not be possible to find extended use for potatoes, so that the demand might be widened and spread over the whole year. This question has cropped up In Germany In an urgent form, and has been solved In recent years by tho adoption of artificial means of drying tho potatoes. In this way a product is obtained for which there is a big dc ' mand all the year round, both for feed- 1 Ing purposes and for industrial employ ment In tho manufacture' of alcohol, starch, etc. i , "The fiscal arrangements of -...
