FOWL CHOLERA. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 July 1914
FOWL CHOLERA. Tli is is one of the most dreaded diseases in the poultry world. It is caused by a germ and is highly con tagious. Once it has established it self in u poultry yard, nothing but the most thorough treatment will pre vent the annihilation of the entire flock. Medical treatment is of litle or no avail. The best thing to do is to kill all the sick birds at once, and to kill tliem in such a way as not to spread the Infection with their blood, and to burn their bodies. The remain ing fowls should then be divided into small lota of from three to five each, BO that when a bird is attacked by the disease the entire flock will not be exposed to it. Watch each one of the Bmall lots closely and remove every sick bird. Clean and disinfect everything thor oughly, including small pens contain ing non-infected fowls, with a carbolic acid solution made by mixing one pint of crude carbolic acid and ten quarts of water. All birds not killed should be given three teaspoonfuls of a half pe...
TANNING SKINS AND HIDES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 July 1914
TANNING SKINS AND HIDES. The following is an approved meth od: Soak the skin or hide two or three days in water, then put in lime; take out and remove the hair by rubbing, i;nd soak it in clear water until the lime is entirely out. Put 3,1b. of alum to 31b. of salt; dissolve in a vessel sufficiently large to hold the hide; soak the hide in it for three" or four days, then take it out, let it get half dry, and then beat or rub it until it teco;nes pliable. Leather prepared in this way will not do well for shoes, hut answers for liame straps, back bands, and various other purposes on the farm. The following is an ac count of the "lightning" method of tanning skins: Pour five or six quarts of boiling water over two quarts of bran, and then strain the infusion. Make an equal quantity of salt water by adding to blood-water as much as will dissolve. Mix the bran and salt water, and to each gallon of the mix ture (when no more than luke-»varm) add an ounce of sulphuric acid. Im merse the s...
PARENTS WHO KEEP YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 July 1914
PARENTS WHO KEEP YOUNG. Parents sometimes have one idea which they found good in their youth, and despite passing years and changeB in manners and circumstances they will try to enforce their views always upon their children, even when these are grown up. Nothing keeps par ents so young QB keeping" pace with the new thoughts and ideas that come with every new generation, and they will increase their children's love and respect by allowing them to hold opin ions worth considering.
A PERFECT WOMAN. What She Should Measure. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 July 1914
PERFECT WOMAN. Whst She Should Measure. If any woman wishes to know if she is a perfect specimen of her sex she has only to apply to the rules laid down for ascertaining the fact, and figure out results. First as to height; tastes differ, but the lledicean Venus is 5ft. 5in. in height, and this is held by many Bculptors and artists to be the moBt admirable stature. For a woman of 5ft 5in. 1381b. is the proper weight, and if she is well formed she can stand another 101b. without greatly showing it. When the arms are extended she should measure from tip of middle finger to tip of middle finger just 5ft. 5in., exactly her own height. The length of her hand should be just a tenth of that, of her foot just a seventh, and the diameter of her chest a fifth. From the thighs to the ground she should measure just what she measures from the thighs to the top of her head. The knee should come exactly midway b'etween the thigh and the heel. The distance from the elbow to the middle finger should...
MAIZE FOR COLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 July 1914
MAIZE FOR COLOR. There are so-called egg foods ga lore, but he real thing Is a proper pro portion of maize green food and lean meat. Too often the high-priced win ter egg proves but a pale, flabby af fair with colorless yolk and watery white. This results from feeding without a sufficiency af green food and hard grain, especially maize* Fresh green feed and maize will pro duce the egg with rich, golden yolk and firm white Btanding up around it -a thing of beauty on the breakfast table and a joy to the breakfaster. An r-bundai.ee of egg-making food fed to the pullets in an appetising and di gestible form so that large quantities may be eaten and assimilated is ne cessary to prolific egg production at any season, but particularly in win ter. Succulent green food is especi ally essential for this purpose, being in fact one of the things that belong to the springtime with its flush of egg production.
FOR THE FARMER. BRANDING CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 July 1914
FOR THE FARMER. BRANDING CATTLE. The great waste of money entailed by our present methods of branding cattle is a subject which periodically crops up in the newspapers and lea ther trade journals. It never appears, however, to get past this stage, for the same injurious method of apply ing hot irons to the best part o£ an animal's hide still continues. In this connection it is pointed out by the English Farmers' Federation that the difference in price of leather, were it not branded, is probably 3d. to 4d. per pound. Then, again, raw hides, if not branded, would fetch Id. per pound more, and, as these hides weigh from 60 lb. to SO lb. the difference in value is very appreciable. The Federa tion advocates either an alteration of the method of branding, or that the animals be branded with smaller brands, on the cheeks, ears, or flanks -not on the rump or the back, as is at present nearly always done. They consider that this would be equally distinguishable, and would do from 5/- to 7/...
IF I KNEW. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 July 1914
IF I KNEW. If I knew the box where the smiles were kept, No matter how large the key Or strong the bolt, I would try so hard 'Twould open, I know, for me. Then, over the land and sea, broad cast, I'd scatter the smileB to play, So that careworn people may hold them fast For many and many a day. If I knew a box that were large enough To hold all the frowns I meet, I would like to gather every one, Prom nursery, school, and street; Then, folding and holding, I'd pack them in, And, turning the monster key, I'd hire a giant to drop the box To the depths of the deep, deep sea. A tourist once happened to meet the usual "oldest inhabitant" of a village. In the course of conversa tion he asked the ancient how old he. was. "I be just a hundred," was the re Ply. "Well, I doubt if you'll see another hundred years," said the tourist, try ing to' make conversation. "I don't know so much about that, master," was the hopaful response. "I be stronger now than when I tsart ed my first hundred." .
DON'TS." [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 July 1914
DON'TS." Don't use the eyes when they are tired or weak from Illness. Don't face the light when reading or sewing. Don't neglect to bathe the eyes before retiring, so as to remove any dust that may have gathered on the lids during the day. Don't allow a cold, raw wind to strike tlia eyes. Don't try to get a cinder out of the eye by rubbing the injured orb; rub the other eye. Don't sleep too much or too little; too much sleep weakens the eyes, too litle fa tigues them. Don't wear your hair always in the same style; a change of method is beneficial to the hair, and to let it fall losely about the shoulders is an excellent plan at times. Don't follow fashion blindly in re gard to coiffure if you would have ar tistic proportions and bring out the best expressions of the face. Don't, part the hair in the middle if you are jround-faced and chubby; this only emphasises the disc-like appearance. Don't get into the habit (quite an easy one to fall into) of frowning. It causes the face to bec...
CHAPTER II. The White Hand. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 July 1914
CHAPTER II. The White Hand. Gilray stared wonderingly at the speaker. He could only wait for the other man to speak. It looked that nij;ht as if all the world had gone mud, as if law and order, and the sacred rights of property were no more. For this man was not shirking or abashed; there was no suggestion of an apology about him. On the contrary, his manner was cooly con temptuous, ever superior; it was as if a magistrate were addressing a first offender. He was a waster, of course, and a failure-even his cool and easy au dacity could not conceal that. But he was undoubtedly a strong man, and Gilroy did not fail to recognise the fact. "How did you get here?" he stam mered. "Does it matter?" the other asked. "Let it suffice that I am here. Be fore long you will be glad I came. Permit me to introduce myself. Mr. Horace Yorley, whilom Doctor Vor ley, very much at your service." "You mean that you are not on, the Medical Register now?" "Precisely. You catch my meaning exactly. The old ...
THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER I. A Midnight Messenger. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 July 1914
THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER I. A Midnight Messenger. Everard Gilray struggled to be free. What did this outrage mean? Who was this ragged, seedy fellow, who had thus dared to attack him on his own doorstep on the stroke of twelve? And this was not some slum in the East End-it was the respectable, dull, decorous Harley-stveet. Gilray had slipped his Yale key in the front door, the polished mahogany portal stood open showing the luxury and comfort and elegance of the hall in the dim, shaded electric light when this ragged nomad had emerged from the sha dows and gripped him by the shoul der. A beggar no doubt, some impudent fellow relying on the lateness of the hour and the stillness of the street to enforce a demand for alms. Gilray turned fiercely upon him, his left shot out and the ruffian staggered under the force of the blow. The street outside was absolutely...
WOMAN'S WORLD. SECRET ENGAGEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 July 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. SECRET ENGAGEMENTS. It is curious what a secretive ten dency some girls exhibit in their love affairs. It Beems that the more deeply and truly people enre for each other, the less they desire to call the world to come and gaze upon the spec tacle of their devotion. But there ia a very happy medium Indeed between that and carrying on a love affair In secret. Some girls more especially very young girls have a romantic idea that it is de lightful to keep from those in author ity the knowledge that they have told someone has their love. But let mo say here that parents ought at once to bo informed of a pro posal of marriage, and their consent asked, or else no engagement can be entered upon. A mnn with any sense of honor will wish at once to go to those who have the authority, and ask for their con sent. in such a case. He never tries to hide the matter, even if it be for the greater enjoyment of secret understanding between him and the girl he hopes to make his wife. Gir...
CHAPTER III. The Sard Intaglio. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 30 July 1914
CHAPTER III. The Sard Intaglio. Gilray moved back as if that long, slim hand was some fearful thing fraught with peril. Yet lie was strange ly fascinated by it, it aroused all his artistic sense and love of the beauti ful. Nor was he blind to the value of those beautiful old rings that decked it with their glittering brilliants. It seemed to him that he had seen one of them before in a famous collection of jewels. Surely the one with the panel of stones had been part of the D'Alen cus treasures. Gilray could have sworn that he had once had it in his fiand for in spection; that it was something he at one time had been half disposed to buy. Sweating and trembling as he was from head to foot, ho could not keep these thoughts out of his mind. The slim, white arm advanced, the slender fingers with the nails of pearl were almost on his foot, the waving light wade circles of flame in the sha dows, he could see the gleaming eyes of the terrified rats. He could see, too, the dark slime on th...

' REMINISCENCES OF AN OLD 'UN." HOW I IMEW THE BADGER. During my wanderings all over Hampehire both by day and night. I used occasionally to come across unite funny scenes. Once I came across pigeon-shooting at a country "pub" for a. fat pig. I entered and won. The competitors vrcre not strong 1 think it was about 25 bob I sold it for. and it was prompt ly put up to be shot for again, but I didn't care for a sccond innings and passed on my way. On another occasion I heard, as I was passing, the deuce of a row in the yard of a public-house, and wan dered in to sec what it was all about. They bad got a poor beast of a badger in u tub, and wcro rushing on a lot of mangy terriers to draw the unhappy brute. The ter riers weren't taking any badger.

After a bit X began ?'.rotting," and said things about the terriers, which appeared to annoy one of my f...
