PIG POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 October 1914

PIG POINT8. ! It pays in bard cash to keep the sows healthy and hearty, both before and after furrowing. At this time of the year the place for the pigs is in the pasture. The shelters must be kept in good order. A little pig takes cold easily and recovers slowly. To prevent this the shelters must be kept dry. The sow on pasture will seldom lose any pigs at farrowing time. Young pigs never have thumps when running in pasture. Gains, are made much more econ omically on pasture. Lucerne makes an excellent pig pasture. Every pig raiser should have a patch of rape. When it is eaten down the pigs should be taken off until the new growth starts up sufficiently. Cow-peas are also a fine supple mentary pasture for pigs. ^ Pigs like (Variety, and make much more satisfactory and profitable growth when this fact is kept in mind. The boar needs good food and plenty of exercise. Keep him in his own strong quar ters, away from the sows, and don't neglect him. Son: Papa, what 4b a safety match? Mr...

DOMESTIC PETS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 24 October 1914

DOMESTIC PETS. By Muriel Mpthias. "I am sorry, my dear," I said in a low tone of mingled kindness and de cision. "but I really cannot counten ance such an idea for a moment" "But, Dick, dearest, they are a birthday present; the only one I've had so far." My wife paused, in or der to give this reminder its due ef fect an<i 1 flushed guiltily n\I cursed my deficient memory. "I did not forget, Lena," I assure 1 her with prompt mendaciousness, "only I've been having mine made for you, and it wasn't finished last night when I—called. I'm sure you will like it so much that you'll, willingly give up this idea of keeping " "Rabbits—really, I love them, Dick." "I do not," I replied with an air of finality which is indispensable in the head of a household. "Therefore please consider the scheme at an end." Lena looked at me despairingly, and subsided into sobs, that added to my annoyance. I went to the city. On returning lio'me many hours lat er with a pretty ring and a certain amou...

KING AND SENTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 31 October 1914

KING AND SENTRY. There is a scarcity of anccdotes about the unfortunate Prince William of Albania, who has found his throne a thorny one to sit on. But when bio graphers fail to find a story of the man of the moment they either make one to fit, filched from some other prominent personage who has no fur ther use for it, or give him a story to tell himself. The one they give the Mpret concerns a certain well-known European sovereign he accompanied during some army manoeuvres. During a stroll about the field of operations, attended only by Prince William, he was intensely annoyed because one sentry failed to salute him. The sentry, of course, simply did not know the sovereign by sight; but the King thought that a slight was intended, and he was furious, es pecially as he has the most splendid and autocratic notions of his own im portance in the scheme of things. "Why don't you present arms?" he demanded, indignantly. The sentry stared at him calmly. "Why should I present arms?" he aske...

CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 31 October 1914

CYCLING. Writing of the work done by cyclists in the-war, an English war correspondent at the front states that they " may be almost said to have scored a triumph." He adds that " the Commander of a force that embodies one or more cyclist battalions has an enormous advan tage in possession of the quickest known striking weapon. Of the English, Belgian, and French cyclists he speaks in the highest terms, but the Germans he considers " typically Teutonic," and of less value than foot soldiers. Ho main tains that they have rendered caval ry more efficient by relieving them of a host of tedius duties involving a terrible wastace of horse-flesh. The spirit of military cycling," he says, " is essentially a twentieth century development. It is the per sonification of a perfect mechanical m chine capable of working con tinuously at high speed, while al lowing every man to retain his in dividuality." "The old spirit of the light cavalry—the quick moving troops for raiding, aud the unex pecte...

SETTLING A DISPUTE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 31 October 1914

SETTLING A DISPUTE. A good story Is told at the expense of a certain farmer who let to a cric ket club one of his fields. Last year he hit upon a scheme for making his field still more profitable. "Without consulting the old club, he let a por tion of the enclosure to a rival organi sation, and thus succeeded in doubling • his receipts. I As was only to be expected, the field being by no means large enough for | two clubs, bickerings and disputes ! were of frequent occurrence. Depu i tations, first from one club and then from the other, waited upon the far ' mer, who at length grew tired of these continual complaints. I "It's a strange thing you can't agree," he remarked at length. '-Why don't you have a joint meeting of the ! two clubs and try to smooth over your little differences?" I This advice was acted upon, though • the result was scarcely what the ! grasping farmer anticipated or desir ' ed. | "We've had that meeting, Mr. B— he was informed at the beginning of the present se...

ANIMAL BULLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 31 October 1914

ANIMAL BULLIES. Many pretty tales are told in chil dren's books regarding the kindness of animals to each other, but prob ably most of these are nothing more than the products of the imagination, for there is very little kindness in the animal world when one of their num ber is sick. Wild birds and animals give no quarter to a weak or sickly comrade. This fact probably accounts for the mystery of never seeing a dead wild bird or animal, for immediately one falls sick it is done to death, and bur ied, no one knows where. The weakling dragging after a herd or flock is quickly put out of its mis ery, not for humane reasons, but for fear of the latter being revealed to a common foe. Nor are tame animals and birds less guilty in this respect. Healthy birds in an aviary will bully an ailing bird shamefully. A sickly hen in a poultry yard has a miserable time, and even cats which have been brought up together will "round on" one of thoir number if it falls sick. Lovers of pets should there...

HARD ON THE CREDITOR.. When Mr. Dobbs reached the boot maker's shop where he had left h!s boots to be mended his heart sank. Although it was early in the evening, the shop was closed, and apparently deserted. He banged" on the front door lustily, and at length Cobbs thrust his head through an upper window. "What d'you want?" he asked. "My boots," said Mr. Dobbs. "You said you'd have them ready for me." "But haven't you heard?" said the cobbler. "I've failed—gone bankrupt." "I don't care! I want my boots!" said Dobbs angrily. Cobbs disappeared, and an instant . later one boot clattered down at Dobbs' feet "But Where's the other?" he cried. "That's all you'll get!" said Cobbs.

Competition for this kind of wool was practically confined to York shire, who were keen bidders for well grown, fairly free lots and such sold at prices 10 per cent, to 15 per cen. over last year's opening rates, but those lots falling short of the Yorkshire standard, were bid for irregularly and our buying in was on a larger scale than usual.

It was no easy task he saw before him, and he braced'himself for the ordeal. In the ordinary way he would not have cared, but then this slip of a girl knew too much. He had had it from her own lips that she had heard most of the conspiracy whereby Geof frey Herepath had been deprived of the most precious possession a man can have. How far was she prepared to go? What sacrifice would she make to Bave her father? If only Gilray could find this out the path would be easier for him. He had expected tears, and' would have known how to deal with them. He had hoped Enid would make an appeal to him, in which case he could have dictated terms. But he saw no suggestion of tears in her eyes, no desire to throw herself on his mercy. "I am afraid I don't quite under etand you," he said. "Yet ...

CITRUS GROWING IN ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 31 October 1914

CITRUS GROWING IN ITALY. The importation into the Common wealth of large quantities of Italian oranges and lemons is reason enough for one to be interested in the con ditions of their cultivation, and the country of their origin. Oranges and lemons uegan to be cul tivated in Italy at the beginning of the sixteenth century, and the plantations increased rapidly until the citrus trade is now one of the most Important in dustries of southern Italy. As far back as the year 1200, a bitter orange tree is said to have been planted in the. garden of the monastery of St. Sabina at Rome by a friar named St. Dominic, and following up the old traditions, visitors to the monastery are shown a tree still alive in the gar den supposed to be a direct descend ant from the first orange tree planted by the monk. In the autumn the Ita lians cover the whole of the trees with straw to protect them from the frosts. It is said to make amost ef fective covering. The fruit is picked by girlB, who perform the...
