The marked variations in the quan tity and quality of fruit borne by in dividual trees of the same typo wore mentioned in the recent article that in dicated the work that is being de-Jo in bud selection iu California. These in dividual variations must be clearly dis tinguished from variations between types. For instance, in the typo of Washington Xavel known as the stmt- , danl type iu California, individual trees have beeu found that consistently bear large crops of high-grade fruit, while other trees bear small quantities of in ferior quality. The latter are known as ?Mi-ones'- from the faet that they require, as much attention, expense, and care for maintenance as the profitable trees without giving commensurate re turns. Good Trees versus Poor Ones. ..

BLUE BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 17 April 1915

BLUE BOOKS. British Government publications nre call ed 'blue books,' because they are usually bound in blue paper covers, and because blue Is the officially recognised color In Par liament and Law. In a few Government ?departments, however, 'blue' books are printed in yellow covers, to distinguish the department. Diplomatic correspondence with foreign countries and short Aels of Parliament are often left unbound, or 'white.' because there Is no strict rule for binding any documents less than an Inch In thickness. In addition to the Government 'Blue Book,' there Is the 'Bed Book.' Tills con tains a list of persons who hold Government appointments. The only other color used by our Government Is black.

WHAT GERMANY IS READING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 17 April 1915

WHAT GERMANY IS READING. Just as Germany and France have become nations of eager readers, both have found their reading much more curtailed than be fore the war began. Statistics have not come from France, but the director of tho Wolff Agency In Gornuiny is quoted as say ing that 1000 German papers, 120 of them political, have been forced to ccase publica tion owing to the war. With the curtail aunt of periodicals, those who have the leisure to read have found themselves lure, and Ihe Berliner Tagehlatt has under taken to direct the minds of its people into cluunels of thought suitable for them. This appeals to a writer in the Paris Journal des Debuts as another example of German 'thoroughness,' and it thus examines the pi offered suggestions:— 'Naturally their first counsel Is that the history of Germany should be read, especi ally that of Frederick II., which has so many points of rcsemhlance with the history of current events ? Also, the Germans are reading Goethe. They are right...
