TRUCE FOR A SONG IN THE TRENCHES. The following story of how the sing ing of a Welsh soldier caused tlio Ger mans to coaso firing lias been told to a correspondent in Flandej-sExcept that lie possessed a remarkably good tenor voice, ho was an otherwise un distinguished woarer of the kliaki. It was., onq of tho many miserable nights in tho muddy trenches. Tho outlook across the flat fields was most forbid ding. 'Jt rained heavily' and always. The mud was semi-liquid, knee-deep, and frigidly cold. Thero was no sound beyond tho occasional crack of a Gor man rifle and tho sharp bark of tho reply shot. In theso circumstances the Welshman suddonly broke into a merry AVelsh ballad, "Hob y deri dando," and when lie had finished, not only did his own comrades applaud liijn, but across from the, opposite trench, there came in excellent English a demand for more. 80 onco again the clear voice was lifted.

CO-OPERATION IN DENMARK. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 22 October 1915

CO-OPERATION IN DENMARK. Tho first co-opcrutivc dairy opened in Denmark in 1832, to bo followed in but n few yoar.v by hundreds of others. 'J'o-day there are 1200 co-operative dairies, owning more than 1,000,000 cows, or SI per cent of tho cowi in Denmark. Tliero are only some 220,000 cows vrlik'li 'ire not cooperatively owned. The chief points m the Danish system are (1), tho small farmer obtains the benefits which inevitably follow great production; (2), lie has a regular weekly settlement from the dairy to which ho sells tho milk, and therefore contracts no bad debts, and is furthermore not compelled to bo a merchant as well as n farmer; (3) he has a strong and direct inducement to produce as much milk as possible; (4) ho receives a sliaro in tho profits of distribution, being part owner of tho factory and sells his milk or makes it into butter; (o) from tho point of view of the consumer the middle man's profits- -often amounting to as much as 120 per cent on dairy produce -aro s...

FERTILISING VALUE OF SULPHUR. ; iixperiments mado in Germany and Franco and by tho Winsconsin Expori mentnl station, have, says tiio Country Gentleman, shown that sulphur lias a certain fortilisor value. Uoulang'er and Dujardin, of France, mado tests with sterilising soil, and proved that sulphur increased the activity of various son organisms. Tho activity of the micro organisms broke down nitrogenous sub stances 111 tho soil, thereby rendering them more easily soluble, and more readily absorbed by plants. To get fjood results, with sulphur it is there fore important iirst to supply the land with organic nitrogenous material such as clovcr, cow peas or any of the logu linnous plants that aro grown as green manures. With such substances in the soil, sulphur is almost sure to givo an increase of " crops. "During the past sqason I mado some tests as to the value ol sulphur 011 the yield of pota toes," says the writer otthc article, "in 1913 swcot corn had been grown on the garden plot...

It has often been said thai a mother's work is never done. It is equally true that a mother's anxiety about the welfare of l'er children is never relaxed. This is largely owing to conditions which are quite beyond her control, ller back need only be turned for a moment when something happers. Her child has fallen down and received a cut or bruise or some other injury, or-may even have Lee'i burnt or scalded. Perhaps it has eaten unripe fruit, or has got wet'and become feverish, or it may be suffer ing great pain from toothache, ear .acho or chilblains, whilst the doctor may be miles away or engaged upon somo more serious case. Alono with out suitable remedy is a dr^ndful pre dicament for the poor mother, and yet to-day there need be r.o cause for .slarui whatever owing to the advent Ci£ the wonderful OZOJS'IA FIRST-AID OUTFITS, which not only contain a supply of the Greatest External and Internal Remedy, "Ozon-ia," but also a pack age of lint. 12 yards of bandaging, a roll of adhesi...

"Come now, rind lot us reason fogoth cr, saitli the .Lord; though your sins bo as scarlet, they i-hall bo as white as snow; though they bo red as crimson, the}- shall bo as wool."--Isa. 1, 18.
