UNEQUAL COMPETITORS. "Now, Thomas," said the foreman, to a greenhand who had just been put on to a job on the railway, "keep your eyes open. When you see a train coming throw down your tools and jump off the line. Run like blazes." "Sure !" said Thomas, and began to swing his pick. In a few minutes the express came whirling along. Thomas threw down his pick, and started up the line ahead of the train as fast as he could. The train over took him and tossed him into a ditch Badly shaken up, he was taken to the hospital, where the foreman visited him. "You blithering idiot !" said the rcreman, 'didp't I tell you to take care and get out of the way Why didn't you run up the side of the bill ?" "Up the side of the hill, is it, sor?" Said Thomas through the bandages on his face. "Up the soide of the hill? By the powers I couldn't beat it on the level, let alone runnin' uphill !"

ONE-ARMED DALY. Among Americans who ha?e aehieved athletic promlinence, though minus an arm or leg, Hiugh Daly, the phenomenal one-armed pitcher for the Cleveland National League in the early 'eighties, is perhaps the beat known. The older generation of basehall fans remember Daly's pitch ing was unusually "claesy. The re. eards show that in 1983 he pitched a no-hit game against Philadelphia. and the next year he established an average trilke-out record for one ses son that still holds good. During that year he took part ini fifty-four games and Etruck out 4tl' batsmen., giving him an average of .359 per cent. The nearest apDroach to this record was that of the late Rube Waddell. who pitched thirty nine games in 1914, fanned 323 bat ters and made a Dercentage of .8230. According to the proverb, the best things are the meet ditcult.

FLIES "SAY NUFFIN." [Newspaper Article] — Pakenham Gazette and Berwick Shire News — 11 January 1918

FLIES "SAY NOFEFIN.' The little boy was looking at a fly trap-one of those green, woven-wired sugerloaf-shaped affairs into which flies crawl at the bottom, and from which they never find any escape. It was half-full of the buzzing insects, and others still were entering. "I've found out one thing about the flies," he said "What is it, Benny?" asked his mother. "I've found out that they don't 'mnow how to talk to each other." "How do you know that ?" "Don't you suppose that those flies on the inside of that trap know that they are caught and cannot get out? And it they could talk to one anoth er don't you suppose that they would tell the flies on the out side to go away, and not try to get in ? Of course they would. They would not be mean enough to want their friends to be trapped just be cause they were."

Grass, potato inspector, writing in tile Journal of Agriculture on the benefits of underground drain age, says :-"Underground drainage serves to relieveo the land of free water, which is harmful to most plants if left to stagnate in the earth near the sur iace. This serves, not only to dry the land in the early spring, bet indirectly to.warm it, for if the water be rnemoved the heat of the sun warms the soil in stead of cooling it by evaporation of the surplus water. If much of the free water in spring thime be carried through the soil by under drains: thei thle superabundant water of mid-sumnmur will, in like manner be removed. The rain in lhe spring-time is warmer than the soil, :tnd if it percolates through the land to the drain .it parts with -its heat and indirectly, warms the soil, whilethe rain in the summer is cooler than the soil, and in passing down to the drains cools thb 'land Under drainage prevents the small channels . of the soil from ...

POISON GAS TO FIGHT LOCUSTS. LESSONS LEARNED FROM OUR WARFARE. There is good in everything if we but Icok for it. The Filipinos, ac Cording to Mir. Monroe Woolley, in a recent paper, have found some good in the present European war. They have learned from the Germans, to fight an enemy with chlorine gas. Locusts fly in the Philippines in swarms so dense that it often takes hours for them to pass a given point. The sun is obscured and the hum of their wings in flight may be heard for miles. Never a year passes but what damage to the extent of mil lions of pesos is done by swarms of theee insects throughout the scatter ed archipelago. Where the distance is not too great, the insects cross from island to island on their riotous ram pages. It was Dr. Vivencio Rosario of the faculty of the Philippine University, who first hit upon the use of chlorine gas to combat the locusts and he obtained his idea from the war in Europe.
