WHY PEOPLE PAINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 12 February 1908
WHY PEOPLE FAINT. Fainting has always for its Immediate cause a 'deficient supply of blood lathe brain. Sometimes this is brought about by a weak heart Most frequently the deficiency is caused by a sudden en largement of the blood-vesselB in the viscera of. the abdomen. Any Shock may do this, and the Immediate conse quents Is a fall of blood to fill the en When the parts below the waist are large and flaccid. It Is very useful to « wear an abdominal belt so adjusted as to exercise a real but moderate pressure. It Is also useful to support the vessels of the legs either with elastic stockings or bandages.

ROOSEVELT'S IDEAS. DOES HE WANT WAR? JAPAN AND AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 12 February 1908
ROOSEVELT'S EDEAS. DOES HE WANT WAR7 ' JAPAN AND AMERICA. The correspondent of the 'Dally Mall' wrote from New York on 30th Septem ber:— The friendly reception accorded In Japan to Mr Taft, Secretary for War, Instead of reassuring the American press, has filled it afresh with sinister fore'bodlngs of belligerent complications, paver since tho Administration resolved to despatch the fleet to tho Paclnc, writers, both Jn newspapers and In ma gazines, have proclaimed that sooner or later a fight between America end Japan for the mastery of the Pacific Is Inevi table. Repeated affirmations to ths contrary by Viscount Aofcl, the Japanese Ambas sador at Washington, and eminent mem bers of the Cabinet failed to quiet these alarums, which have been sounded with redoubled vigor tho moment that any statesman raised his voles in depreca tion of a_ Jingo campaign. Thus Mr Taft's declaration to tbe Ja panese that he is not only Minister of War but also minister of peace evokes an extraordinary s...

WHEN TO PICK PEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 12 February 1908
WHEN TO 3PIOK MSABS. The pear is ready to pick when the stem will separate from the -spur as the fruit is taken in the hand and tipped up. This is a good rule -for some varieties, but Is unreliable for others, which sepa rate from the stem readily long before they are fit to pick. Another good rule ts to pick when the wormy specimens are. showing .the first indications of ye), lowing or ripening. Picking with the first Indications of yellowing about the base of the Btem or In the neck of the pear Is another good rule to be followed In picking, most varie ties. As the pear reaches maturity It has a characteristic mottling of the sur face, which Is a helpful guide In picking. This mottling 1b due to a softening of the green color about the dots. It should be borne In mind that pears ripen -slowly: oh the tree arid that tlie picking season may extend over a long period: The grower should make evrrz effort to bring all the fruit. up to the nviiilrv^ Htcfi HpMta nirlrlnv ?

DEAR BUCKLAND AND THE GEOLOGICAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 12 February 1908
^D^kix iiiioKJUiJsro and the GEOXOGIOAX SOCIETY. - Tho centenary of the Geological Society was rightly commemorated by a dinner, for this learned body was 'evolved' In true British fashion from a Bclentifle dlnlng-club. At Oils solemn festivity, remarks tbe 'Westminster Gazette,' tho substantial faro would have terrified a modern food-reformer, find absentees with weak digestions were heavily fined. Their geological dis coveries were but slowly appreciated. They furnished a favorite theme for satirists so recent as Bret Harte, and ?were regarded with suspicion by religi ous people, though Dr Buckland, one of the founders, was an orthodox dignitary of the Anglican Church. Dr Buckland united simplicity with acumen, and at Oxford tbe undergraduates foisted on him some chocolate beetles as sand stone fossils. These the savant hoarded as rare geological treasures until they we're surreptitiously devoured by his sou Frank, the future naturalist.

The French organisation- familiarly known as tho 'C.G.T.'— Confederation Generate du Travail— is about to insti tute an exhaustive inquiry Into tho con ditions of Ufe of tho working c'-asses. It Is a vast, an ambitious undertaking by a society whose banker's balance Is not of the longest. But tbe uia'-Wnery al ready exists, and the volunteers are nu merous and zealous. In France and foreign countries Uie 'C.G.T.' has for some time beea chlelly regarded as the foremost agent for the preaching of 'Antl-Milltarlsm'— or, as its enemies allege, of 'Antl-Patrlotlsm.' Nor Is this repute, or disrepute, unde served. One of the ablest leaders of the 'C.G.T.,' M. Tvetot, Is still under lock and key, doing penance for hie alleged propagandism of sedition In the army.

THE CHURCH CONGRESS. ITS PRESIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 12 February 1908
THE CHURCH CONCRESS ITS PRESIDENT. X,ike cod-liver oil and caviare an Anglican bishop is an acquired taste. I Sartorial blots upon tbe face of nature, they start upon their arduous career heavily handicapped. Mr George Du Maurier once told me that bis favorite studies for 'Punch' were bishops and footmen, because each were possessed of suanely calves. To many people who possess a. wide knowledge of them their chief attributes are bad tempers, sharp tongues, and unrivalled capacity for hard work and milk puddings, ond their lives arc spent In the constant pursuit j of the mild and wiry curate. Nevertheless, when all is said and done, an Anglican bishop Is neither to be lightly set aside nor ruthlessly swept ; away, and as a rule their devotion to the Establishment is only equalled by their untiring energy and self-sacrifice, j But there are bishops and bishops, j and Dr. Sheepshanks, who presides at ' the congress which opens to-day in Great Yarmbouth, Is, perhaps, though but little ...
Looses Soils and Moisture. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 12 February 1908
Xftose Softs «ia MoUtnre. That a loose soil 5» protected agair.et ordinary drought lias been repeatedly proved. - Being a non-conductor of heat, It acts as a- mulch, keeps the soil damp, . and the roots cool: whereas the hard, unpioughed-land Is a goo-| conductor, and affords iio resistance to the access : of the Injurious heat of the sun. Dew In abundance Is very valuable to young plants, and Its formation is facilitated by stirring the soil. If any farmer, will look in the morning in his flower or kitchen garden, he will see that dew Is ^Jott/en abundantly formed .upon the 1 loosely-cultivated beds, white It' la ', totally absent In the hard walks.

A LONDON EPISODE. IN A FRONT PARLOR. The street door opened Into the front parlor, and tbe small room was bright with the afternoon's sun. But It was on coming: death ana new-born llXe that the sunlight smiled. The grandmother, old ond weary at fifty, lay on a bed-chair ui-der tUo win dow, within a few Inches of the passere by; and near tho fireplace sat the young mother, nursing her ten-days-old child. The face of the dying woman was yeHbw and faded as nn elm-leaf In autuinn. Hollows In her cheeks, her temples, and round her jaws. The lips were already etlft, and the hand she placed In mine was cold with tbe chill of death. Rest lessly she turned from Bide to side and plucked at the bedclothes, at the freshly starched curtains; and the elder daugh ter—a emart barmaid— drew these Impa tiently a'way from the searching bend. The woman was quite sensible, and pointed out tbe daughter with the baby as the one for whom I had found a situa tion. But every (ew minutes she lay back and doze...
THE MUMMY OF AH-BRAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 12 February 1908
THE MUMMY OF AH-BRAM. ' BY HAROLD PAGET. The uncle from whom I Inherited all my wealth, together with the famouB house in which we still reside, must'liave been one of the most cantankerous and extraordinary men who ever lived, the sort of man in connection with whom the unexpected always happens. He had lived much In the orient, and seems, from what I can gather, to have been feared and detested more than he was liked. Bis keen business faculties, which resulted in an extraordinary &a- cumulatlon of wealth, appear only to have been equalled by the unscrupulous way in which he enjoyed them. When he finally gave up business and resolved to settle down he was known to have the finest collection of Indian curios in the world. He Immediately turned his attention tu purchasing a mansion- In which to stoic them, and when I Inherited the place after his death and viewed the mansion for the first time, with my wife, I thought I never before had seen euch a heathenish exterior.
