CONDITIONAL LEASES. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 7 November 1913
CONDITIONAL LEASES.

The date of commencement of leases, which were applied for during the per-' iod 1st January 1885, and 30 November 1889 expire at the end of.; 28 years from the date of confirmation of the ap plications by the local land board, but extension of" the term or conversion into, additional conditional purchase must'be' applied for before the expiration of the 28 years term if the holders desire to retain possession of these lauds.

l'ROBLEM OF THE ERADICATION' OP THE WILD OAT. VALUE OF SCIENTIFIC FARMING. A "featuro of the crops in thy old established wheat, districts is the im provement in methods of cultivation, and .the advantage to be gained in adopting the new methods is striking ly apparent. In every case where crops were sown 011 fallowed ground, and carefully put in, the return will be,good recompense for; extra labour entailed. Further, the difference is shown in the methods adopt ed on the main line compared with those further away iu the new districts on the branch lines, compared with those further away in the new districts on the branch imeB, where old-time methods are still prac tised by a few. in the one' case the 'careful cutivatiou keeps the paddocks clean and free of the wild out's and woedB( even on ground that, has been cultivated continuously for- years.

Their friends gave them much advice, principally on the ways of the wily "sharper." So the old people set off on their journey, deter mined to look out for these men; and should they meet any had characters, to take care not to be misled by any expressions of friendship. On the way, the old gentleman got off at a junction to get some lunch, and the train went oft without him. It was a terrible mishap.

"What mnde you think of that?" , "The actions of a woman I saw in the town to-day," answered Mr. Gam mer. "She followed a man nearly half a mile just to read a placard that was fastened 011 his back. She spot ted him in King-street. That; was really the end of the trip, I feel sure, from something she said to another woman, who was too fat to join in the chase. But when she caught sight of the blue poster tied to his back her curiosity got the better of lier, and she set out after him. "He led her quite a chase, along Manchester-road, down Avon-street, and through Chestnut-square, but she never weakened. Shq faithfully fol lowed him and finally got close enough to read the poster." Mrs. Gammer reflected a moment "What did it say?" she asked. "It advised her to get her teeth pulled somewhere along Nelson street." Mrs. Gammer thought again. "Where were ...

LADIES' LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 7 November 1913
LADIES' LETTEK. By. "Irene," , There have not been many startling split skirts at the race meetings so far, indeed, as far as my own observa tion goes, I should say they have been,. conspicuous by their absence. Fluffy underskirts are creeping into evidence again, so that where there 'was a mod est little slit it but revealed the soft ■frou-frou of lace or delicate eillc frills. But Jack declares that he saw "some regular 'bobby dazzlers,'" especially in tha saddling paddock. This is Jack's scarcely lucid way of telling of something startling in attire, tir the tout ensemble. He declares he met one woman in a crimson-lake and ver digris green toilette which made him blink, it was so eye-dazzling. He sticks to the colors; says he addled his brain-until he recalled something to express the exact shades. I must confess I did not see anything quite 30 vivid, though pretty near it. He: [ also 'complains of eye-paining yellows; But what he talks about more than anything else—and, as to th...

But I never could shoot a rabbit, out whar rabbits is thick, And I figger that shootin' a lady is a similar kind o' trick, Rabbits and ladies and babies—they can't shoot back, you eee, And tile guy was a cur that murdered her!" said Phoenix Phil to me.

"Perfectly, perfectly," heartily re sponded the guest; "deliglitful walks and drives, magnificent viows, best bathing I ever had; cool, airy rooms, a table equal to the best in the city, and cliargOB reasonable.

PITY THE POOR HORSE. A Fashion That Spells Cruelty. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 7 November 1913
PITY THE POOR HORSE. V I A Fashion That Spells Cruelty. Horses have long been victims of fashion, for fashion has decreed that their tails shall he docked. They loolt smarter, it seems, without tails, and the heedless make for the imagined smartness, never thinking that In tiie questionable pursuit they are hurting tiie horses. It la In the summer-time that the custom lias most effect—when Hies are about, Lieutenant It. A. Tim mis, of the Royal Canadian Dragoons, points out, there In a very perfect sys tem of lly-muscles extending all over the body of the horse, except where the tail Is supposed to reach, if un mutilated. Hence a tail of length reaching nearly to the hocks Is abso lutely necessary, if the liorse Is to be ullowed any peace In the summer. If a horse lias once Ooen docked, It can never have a tall of any use U. it; but If it has only had the hair of the tail banged* short, however short, It can soon have not only a defence against Hies, but a .iiuite long tall, which i...
CHAPTER XX. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 7 November 1913
CHAPTER XX; It was the evening of the second performance of Lady Pettigew'6 great dramatic entertainment. "What, not coming to Lady Pettl gew's?" "When I go to the play I like to see It acted!" "But I'm in it, Uncle!" "'Mplx!" "You accepted Lady Pettigew's in vitation," urged young Penistone Cott to hte uncle; "you've bought two tic kets, so you must come and see me act." "Amateur theatricals! Nice train ing for a rising young barrister!"said John Cott, satirically. "Dear Uncle, I am going to com blno 'Lovers' and counsel for the de fence in the future!" replied the youngster. He spoke lightly, yet ho felt nettled that liie uncle would not come to see him play. John Cott squinted at the well-cut evening clothes, the white expanse of shirt front, tlio polished collar, surmounted by an alert, clean-shaven face that ended in a Arm chin. There was a fatherly pride, yet a suggestion of disapproval, in his gianco. Ho had had to work hard in his young days to lay a foundation tor success. ...
Forever. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 7 November 1913
Forever. The breezes sing It as they pass Among the reeds that gently sway; The Httlo live things in the grass Repeat it all the summer day; I hear it in tile field and glen; The thrush, the linnet, and the wren Have nothing else to sing or say. The brook that gurgles at my feet Employs it as a sad retrain; I hear it ill the noisy street And in the quiet, grassy lane; It issues from the busy shops, And it is murmured by the drops That dash themselves against the pane. When clouds have robbed the day of light, And when tlie sky is bright and blue, When morning comes and late at night, I hear it still, and bo do you; • It is the grim demand to pay; No matter where we hide or Btray, Some wretched bill is always due. —S. E. ICiser.
HINTS FOR HOLIDAY MAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 7 November 1913
HINTS FOR HOLIDAY MAKERS. As the wife and the children usually monopolise all tlio space, it Is advis able to select ail empty cigar-box for your own requirements. When you have packed the trunk full to overflowing, you can still pile on the articles—if you have a twenty stone cook who can sit on the lid while you turn the key. Plenty of refreshment should be provided. A railway journey to the seaside brings on a voracious appe tite eu route. A small hammer should be provided to crack the railway buns and saudwiches. The children should sit on the lug gage, while you are getting the tickets. It is best to take the dog, as with the aid of an extra long lead he can amuse the children by tripping up old gentlemen and porters. If you are hard up, one or two chil dren over age can travel free by fix ing them up in rabbit hutches, marked "With Care." A guinea-pig or two which could appear at the bars would ensure the device being undetected. Leave the children at the station while seeldii...
