SOfficials in Government De partments are often -at. a loss to know how to fill" in -their. time.

The latest freak is on the part. of the Police Depart ient;which gives further evidence of the officials- of the detective force having: little' to do :-and plenty of time in iwhicih to do it.

FAVEROLLES FOR UTILITY PURPOSES. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 3 February 1914
FAVEROLLES FOR UTILITY, .PURPOSES. The Faverolle fowl is a composite French breed, oontaining the blood,. among others, of the Dorking and the llrahma. The former gives it in "valuable table qualities, whilst the lat-' ter provides the clihracter of hardiness.I As a matter of fact, the Faverolle is one of the most useful breeds in- ex istence, and the sold rbassn whv it is so little kept in this country is that it is so little known and ajprciated. In oertain parts of England no other breed enjoys so good a reputation and it is sinifioant that birds ef " this * stamp, if properly fattened, invariably realise the top prices in the London markets. A Herefordshire farmer who &lt;has kept Faverolles for some four years, considers them quite as gbod as - " Wyandottes for winter laying5 whilst their superior colour and qualty for the table put them well ahead of that breed. • A yaluable feature of the Fa verolle is its& quicl. rolwth. Being fine in bone in proportin to its...
BRING YOUR INCOME UP. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 3 February 1914
" BRING YOUR INCOME UP. - :"Don't keep -your expenses down to your income. 'Bring your income up to your expenses. If you manage to live on wha,t you make. you will never be spurred to better performances." This is the advice given by a San Franciscan who has made good. And why not? It seems heresy but it is not, when you come to think it over. Take the clerk on $1200 or $1800 a year. If he is one of those carefully restrained men, keeping not only his expenses, but his wants well within his meagre income, he will remain a clerk all his life; die with that same income in his old age. The man who has wants beyond his income to gratify, if he has any merit in him, will hustle to bring in the dollars that he needs. Maybe he does not actually wish to live on. a better scale than lie is living, but wishes to save for investment or for a rainy day. - He must lift his revenue or live a hand-to-mouth existence, or run into debt beyond his ability td pay. He becomes ambitious, and more in du...

LANGUAGE—A GROWTH. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 3 February 1914
LANGUAGE--A GROWTH. We may refuse to admit that our pronunciation is degraded but we eon not deny that it is different from the standard of usage of the previous gen eration. Language, it must be re membered, is in all its phases a growth, and every living tongue suffers change, not only in form and significance; but also; and more noticeably, perhaps, in utterance. . "I can't understand why my second husband is so fastidious" confessed a Olasgow lady to her bosom friend. "He scarcely eats anything. My first hus band, who died, used to eat everything I cooked for him." "Did you tell your present husband thatP" "Yes." "That's the reason."!

We'll do it this way." .Tell him where -you think- he is wrong, and ask him what he thinks of your way. Probably in so doing he can show you something you do not know. The worst way to kill the ambition of. a boy is to tell him how good you'used to be. Most boys will count it a likely story, and think less of you ever. afterward.

PIGS AS BAROMETERS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 6 February 1914
PIGS'AS BAROMETRS - Probably the last thing that one: would expeot to indicate chaiges in the weather is a pig's tail. Hwever according'to the skipper of a Nor wegiani sailing ship, who usuallyhas. ,a porker"'or-two on 'board, one could 'scarcely 'have- a more_ reliable barons eter. When' a weather distirbazice is coming ion, the tails of the pigs, usually kinky, straighten out . adi their ears droop. With the barometer reading between 29,90 and 30 the tails begin-to forecast approach of a trough of Ilow , pressure. When the reading gets below 29.50 the pigs seek cover, and the storm is pretty sure to burst within five hours. Buta high baro meter puts a beautiful twist in the tails, 'sd the ears stand jauntily stiff -ud with a trifle of a cant fos-iverdk The suoceessful man in any business is the on'e who can and will make? use ,if the experience "& otheis-who. hlas? the conrage to discard his own ierror, and adopt the truth. discovere by sthohe

ADVANTAGES OF CLIPPING HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 6 February 1914
ADVANTAGES OF CLIPPING HORSES. First.-The- natural'process of moul ting or shedding the hair is a draft on tlia vitality of the aninials.. .The ap petite is diminished, and with work or pleasure, horse exertion is irksome dur ing that period.- Clipping or arti fial removal of the hair accomplishes in a very short space of time what Nature requires much more time to "do7 In other words,' Nature is an ticipated in her work, and the ani Uial's system saved a call upon it. Second.--A clipped horse is less !!able to take cold than a long-coated norse, because the evaporation of pers piration is more rapid. A "hot" 'lorse will cool out ;much quicker witli a short coat. Every groom is aware of -this fact. Third.-A clipped horse requires less fuel (food) to maintain bodily heat thaii the long coated horse; therefore clip ping as a matter of economy should be generally practised. l'ourth.-tA olipped horse 6lioks more cleanly, acts more sprightly ,.and keeps in better health.
