LITTLE THINGS THAT COUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

LITTLE THINGS THAT COUNT. Cutting docks off two seasons run ning just below the surface. Pulling yellow dock and burning it. Gathering all the foul weeds before they drop their seed. Oiling the waggon before the fric tion begins to cut the boxing. Taking time to grind all tools be fore using them. Stopping on the spot and fixing the gaps in the fence. Making every mistake right at once after it is discovered. Feeding cows just a little more than enough to keep them in prime condi tion. Doing a bit of thinking yourself ■ not depending on somebody else to think for you. Harnessing the horses upon lioi\or every time—no strap ends left dang ling to come unbuckled and provoke runaways. Hitching the horses every time you leave them for a moment. It takes "only a moment" for the worst run aways to get under way. Knowing a good suggestion when you see it and making it yours.

SUPERSTITIONS ABOUT WEDDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

SUPERSTITIONS ABOUT WEDDINGS. The wedding ring is always placed on the third linger of the left hand, because this finger is supposed to be in close sympathy with the heart. In leaving the church, the bride will do well to place her right foot fore most if she wishes to be happy, heal thy, etc., in the future, and she should always be first to call her husband by name. Never, if you value your happiness, enter the church before the ceremony at one door and leave after the cere mony by another door. It is said to be unlucky to tie shoes to any part oi the carriage jn wliicli the bride and bridegroom go away, but it is lucky to throw an old slioe after the bride as she enters the car riage. Throwing rice or wheat over the bride is lucky, as is also confetti, which is much more used now. After the wedding breakfast and re ception, the bride should be careful to throw away and lose all the pins, if there are any about her. The brides maids should not kcefr the pins them selves, or they ...

ADVANTAGES OF THE SILO. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

ADVANTAGES OF THE SILO. Silage keeps young stock thrifty and growing all winter. It enables cows to produce milk and butter more economically. Silage is more conveniently handled than dry fodder. The silo prevents waste of maize, which contain about one-third the food value of their entire crop. There are no aggravating maize stalks in the manure when silage is fed. 'The silo will make palatable food of stuff that would not otherwise be eaten. It enables a larger number of ani mals to be maintained on a given number of acres. It enables the farmer "to preserve food which matures at a rainy time of the year, when drying would be next to impossible. It is the most economical method 1 of supplying food for the stock dur ing the hot dry periods in summer when the pasture is short.

LARGE UDDER. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

LARGE UDDER. While a large udder is sought for, it is not always an assurance of heavy milking ability. A large udder may be fleshy and firm in texture, and con sequently would not surpass in pro duction a smaller udder whose tissue was of "greater quality. This quality is important, and it is one point upon which a dry cow might be judged for production. The udder should be soft, light and spongy to the touch. The skin should be soft and elastic, and covered with fine silky hair. After milking, the covering should fall in to many folds that are loose, soft and ; oily. "Man's life and well-being are like a tree. Tile root of the tree is agricul ture, and manufactures and commerce the branches. Injure the root and the tree dies. Upon agriculture the whole industrial fabric, the whole structure of the state, rests." Re member this, Mr. Cityman. He must be a strong man who can conceal his inclination. Some of our people appear to be holding their weapons—or tools—111 the old ways, and ...

£ S. D. OF BIG WARS. SOME FIGURES TITAT WILL STARTLE YOU. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

i S. D. OF BIG WARS, r \ SOME FIGURES TITAT WILL STARTLE YOU. Where is it going to end ? That is the question which war experts and those who have studied the his tories of modern campaigns are con tinually asking themselves. Even in times of peaco it taxes the re sources of the principal Powers to maintain their armies and navies on a footing of proportionate strength to other countries—as a matter of fact, the armed peace of Europe for the last thirty-seven years has cost at least £22,200,000,000—while the conditions of modern warfare are such that it costs practically £1, 000,000 a day to keep an army in the field. Take the last great .campaign, for instance—the war between Russia and Japan—which lasted from Feb ruary, 1904, to September, 1905. Altogether it is estimated that the combined expenses of Iiussia and Japan for that war amounted to no less than £450,000,000, of which Russia's share was £250,000,000, the loss to Japan's navy and mer cantile marine alone amounting to no ...

THE VIXEN AND HER BABIES. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

THE VIXEN AND HER BABIES. 1 There is a very peculiar feature in connection with all predaceoui creatures, both furred and feather ed, when .breeding:, and it is that they do not appear to interfen with game near their breeding haunts-. liven a vixen, says the "Shooting World," will leave the earth con taining her cubs, puss right through rabbits feeding near, and nevei make an attempt to catch one ; al though half a mile distant she will chase down an unfortunate rabbit and return with it to her young sters. This habit of the fox is pointet out as a proof of the animal's cun ning, and her desire to curry favoui with the owners of game and poul try near her nursery, for, were she to commit Mctensive depredations there, the losses sho occasioned would be resented, -and she and hei youngsters would soon be destroyed. However, the vixen's motive foi leaving things around her earth un touched is not that with which sh< is credited ; were she to make- c clearance there, little ...

FACTS ABOUT SALT. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

FACTS ABOUT SALT. It is wonderful the many things that salt may be used for. It is a capi tal remedy for rheumatism if taken regularly before breakfast. A nightly gargle of salt and water strengthens a weak throat, and keeps off bronchi tis. When eaten with nuts it aids di gestion, and it will relieve heartburn if taken in cold water. It is also a good thing for burns, and for stings of bees; if a thick plaster of wet salt is tied on the place it will take the pain out. If the chimney gets on fire, throw salt on the fire. If there has been anything burnt in the oven, throw salt in, and it will take the smell away. When soot drops on the carpet throw salt on it, and then swep it up. If it is rubbed on silver, china, or earthen ware it will take stains of tea or hums off. If applied at once it will take out ink stains. In washing col ored clothes, if a handful is put in tlie water the color will neither run nor fade. If used in frosty weather on doorsteps it fills the place of ashes, ...

CHAPTER VIII. Missing. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 27 June 1914

CHAPTER VIII. Missing. Angus Galbraitli pressed the tear moist handkerchief to his face, and the big man sobbed out his soul in the darkness of the night. In the silence he returned to the house de bating. within himself as to what he should do. His mother was standing at the door, and as he approached, she ran to meet him. "Oh, Angus," she cried, "where is Elsie?" "Elsie?" he said, and his heart gave a great bound. "Is she not in her room?" "No, Angus, and this is your do ing? What have you done with the girl?" "I have not seen her, mother," 'lie said, restraining himself with a great effort, "I—I think she must be with— Eric." The old woman's face cleared. "Oh, then, it'll be all right," she said, a little more brightly. "Angus, you bet ter away to bed, I'll wait up for them." He could hardly restrain his sobs as he noticed how the mention of Eric had made all things right to his mother. But he said, "No, mother; I'm not going to bed. I want you to go. You are tired and trembling....
