WAIUNDUC MEWS. [ On Saturday the school c'ommittee, I consisting of Messrs P. Perry, Jas. Urch, P. Dunn, F. Meinsen and Mrs Urch (secretary) held a working bee to erect a fence around the school garden. The men put up a substantial wire netted fence that will protect the gar den from the depredations of sheep, rabbits, hares and other live stock for many years.to come, and Mrs Urch and a lady friend dispensed refreshments to the workers. The fence was intended as a pleasant surprise to the teacher, Mr W. Milne, when he returned from the holiday vacation. It succeeded. Mr Milne's work as a teacher is very greatly appreciated by the parents of this district, and they naturally desire to retain his services as long as possible. Mr W. Milne formerly resided at Beau fort. -
THE GARDEN. HOW TO MAKE DWARF TREES. THE AMATEUR CAN DO IT. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 6 February 1915
THE GARDEN. 1 HOW TO MAKE DWARF TREES. THE AMATEUR CAN DO IT. How gardeners manage to grow miniature pines, firs, and oaks in flower-pots for half a century has al ways been more or less of a secret. It is the result chiefly of skilful, long-continued, root-pruning. They aim first and last at the seat of vig orous growth, endeavouring to weak en it just as far as possible without destroying the life of the tree. Thry begin with a young plant, say a seedling of a cedar or hemlock, wlun only two or three inches high, and cut off its tap-roots as soon as it, has other rootlets enough to live upon, and replant it in a ahallor earthen pot or pan. The end of the tap-root is gemtra" ly made to rest on the bottom of the pan, or on a flat stone within it. Al luvial clay is then put into the pot, much of it in bits the size of beans, and just enough in kind and quantity to furnish a scanty nourishment to the plant. Just enough of water, light and heat is given to keep it alive, but not enough...

CHAPTER X. MR. DORSEY HAS REMARKABLE SUCCESS—THE FOUR BRASS PLATES. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 6 February 1915
CHAPTER X. MR. DORSEY HAS REMARKABLE SUCCESS—THE, FOUR BRASS PLATES. It is possible that from the des cription of Malcolm Dorsey which has preceded this, the reader , has formed so poor a conception of the English man's character as to expect him to proceed secretly in his quest for the buried treasure, and endeavour to obtain all four shares for himself. To the credit of Dorsey be it said that he never contemplated anything of this kind. He was determined to find three missing brass plates and, if possible, follow the directions en graved thereon, believing that the treasure buried by his ancestor still lay waiting for him in the distant is land. But he was not, after all, without honour. He was simply what may any day be found in London or New York — a young man whose tastes were far beyond his means, and whose constant struggle to live up to his supposed net?ds has made him cdllous to the wrongs of the tradesmen whom . he fails to pay for their goods. If Dorsey had been a wealthy...

TO PREVENT INFLUENZA. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 6 February 1915
TO PREVENT INFLUENZA. A practical health hint thrown out by Dr. Rigby at the Preston (Rng.) Town Council,seems to be good. He foun&lt;I from the medical officer's an nual report that bronchitis accounted for more deaths than consumption, yet it was a less difficult disease to cope with. Bronchitis, he saids was chiefly due to an attack of influenza, and with proper care he believed that influenza could be abolished entirely in a very short time. The procedure he suggested for avoiding influenza or any other of the contagious diseases was to gargle every morning and flush out the nos trils with a weak antiseptic lotion. This took little time, but it was the most effective in preventing the en trance of the influenza germ into the system. Having prevented influenza, they prevented-bronchitis, and by this simple expedient the deaths would be reduced by hundreds a year.
PIONEER OF THE GENERAL "STORE." [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 6 February 1915
PIONEER OF THE GiNERAL " STORE." «• * * A " - The great drapery emporium of the general "store" now forms such an integral portion of city life that it is hard to conceive a modem metropo lis without such establishments. Yet they date from little more than half a century ago. It was on July 9, 1855, that M. Chauohard opened the "Grands Magasons du Louvre," in the Rue de Rivoli, Paris, then prac tically a new thoroughfare. Although naturally of a cautious and prudent disposition, he possessed that gift of initiative and enterprise, of divining "what the public wants," which Is the secret of commercial success. His shopmen stood aghast when they saw great rolls of silk fresh from the factory ruthlessly cut up into "remnants" (then an unheard-of idea) ; but they, soon learned that their employer knew his customers, ami the stock was speedily cleared out. Another of his innovations was to give away free to every purchaser ac companied by a child a toy. balloon bearing the name of his sh...
MISSED THE CONNECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 6 February 1915
MISSED THE CONNECTION. "There were two actresses in an early play of mine," said an author, "both very beautiful ; but the lead ing actress was thin. She quarrelled one day at rehearsal with the other lady, and she ended the quarrel by saying haughtily, 'Remember, please, that I am the star.' 'Yes, I know you're the star,' the other retorted, eyeing with an amused smile the lead ing lady's long, slim figure, 'but jou would look better, my dear, if you were a little meteor.' " 1966.
VERY VALUABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 13 February 1915
VERY VALUABLE. : The squire could not be absolutely, certain, but he had a strong convic tion'that Mr. Stilepost an&lt;i his fami ,ly benefited more by his ?ame than from a strictly moral pointy of view they should have done. But the keep ers were no match for the wily Stile post, and the squire at last hit upon a really brilliant, idea ; he would buy the suspected culprit's dog. "That's a sharp-looking dog you have, John," he remarked; one morn ing. "I've taken a fancy to, him. I suppose a f.ver would buy him ?*' "No, sir," said John, respectfully. "Ten pounds, then ?" "(No, sir." "Well"—desperately—"twenty! No? Good gracious, man, you on the verp« of starvation, and yet you'*'refuse twenty pounds for1 a lurcherJ Look' j here, you know you can't afford to , keep a dog !" . . ■ | "True, sir." ; - y , *.• "Then why do 5 ou ?"

THE MATABELE CYCLIST. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 13 February 1915
THE MATABELE CYCLIST. j It is a great ambition amongst j most Matabele "boys" to learn to ride a bicjcle, and when this has j been accomplished to possess a cycle of their own. Ths ease with which a I raw youth from the country learns to cycle is astounding. ! It is no uncommon sight to see a boy cycling through the town carry ing a typewriter on his head. To carry a few pieces of long flooring board under one arm is nothing, and the writer once saw a boy cycling along with a fair-sized kitchen tabl?, legs upwards, balanced en his head, i Concerning cycling, a rather amus i ing. incident occurred at a local na i tive sports meeting. There was a bi cycle race, distance five miles, for j which a large number had entered. ; One of the competitors had noticed j that when the white men had a long : race they frequently had a friend in attendance with a sponge to cool him. This worthy cyclist, therefore, arranged with a friend to "stand j by," with a bucket of water, and on i a given sign...
THE FARM. FARM BOOK-KEEPING GETS R[?] OF MORTGAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 13 February 1915
FARM BOOK-KEEPING GETS RDJ OF MORTGAGES. If the farmers of America were ae careful as other business men in keep ing exact records of their business transactions, their income and liabi lities, there would be far less business for the money\ lenders, far fewer farms mortgaged to the last fence line, and more automobiles in the country than in the cities. Believing strongly in the necessity for farm bookkeeping, Dean J. A Bexell, of the Oregon Agricultural College School of Commerce, gives the future ranchers, orchardmen, and stockmen in his classes thorough training in the keeping of farm re cords. "It is doubtless true that the farm er is becoming a factor to be reckon ed with in the business world, tbat the average farmer knows vastly more about scientific farming than his father did ; he understands more thoroughly the value of proper culti vation, of fertilisation, of rotation of crops, and of diversified farming ; but it cannot, be said that ha owes his success to improved busi...

SWEET REASONABLENESS. A man who has seen a good deal of quarrelling over wills, recently left this legal document for his friends to. peruse:— "This is the last will and testament of me, Bill Jones. I leave all my things to be divided among my relatives. If anybody makes a fuBs about anything, he isn't to have nothing." Convicts at Camp Hill Prison, Parkhurst, are, allowed to plant cab bages for their own consumption. Smoking is also allowed. 1967.

ETIQUETTE OF THE SOFA. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 13 February 1915
ETIQUETTE OF THE SOFA. Cowper was responsible for the opi nion that Necessity, invented stools, Convenience next . suggested elbow chairs And luxury the' accomplished Bofa last. Evidently the Italians look upon the sofa with a kind of reverence, for it is esteemed a great privilege to use that comfortable piece of furniture. An invitation tp take a seat on a sofa is one of the highest compli ments an Italian hostess can pay to a guest. Young or middle-aged men nevfer aspire to that distinction, which is associated with ripe years and $ . worthy record of life. English visitors unacquainted as they may well; be with the peculiar form of reverence, sometimes sit on the sofa uninvited, to the surprise andi consternation of the household, as the action ig considered a solecism of the worst kind. In clerical circles tHe etiquette, of the sofa is strictly observed. A Ro man Cardinal giving a reception, may invite a venerable bishop to sit by his side on the couch, but chairs are deemed qu...
