DO IT NOW' if you have a grey-haired mother In the old home far away, Sit down now and write the letter You put off day by day. Don't wait until her tired steps Reach heaven's pearly gate But show her that you think of her Before It is too late, if you've a tender message, Or a loving word to say, Don't wait till you forget it, lint whisper it to-day, Who knows 'what bitter memories May haunt you if you walt? So make your loved ones happy Before it is too late. We live but in the present, The future is unknown, To-morrow is a mystery, To-day is all our own, The chance that fortune lends to us May vanish while we wait, So spend your life's rich treasure Before it is too late. The tender words unspoken, The letter never sent, The long-forgotten messages, The wcalth of love unspent, For these some loved ones wait So show them that you care for them Before it is too late,

CARE OF CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 10 January 1914
CARE OF CREAM. For the factory manager to turn out a first-grade butter ho requires the help of the farmer. The cream must be delivered in the best order pos sible. Cleanliness in the dairy is an essential condition. Cream cans are re turned washed, but itis voly necessary that they should be thorouglhly cleansed and scalded again at the farm before use. For segregating, a special room should be provided, at least 30 yards to windward of the milking shed, have a concrete floor, be provided with good drainago, well ventilated, and have a good supply of water. The milk should be separated as soon as possible, and while the animal heat is in the milk. The cream should at once be cooled to the lowest possible temperature; and, as the water required is small, this should present no serious difficulty. Un der no circumstances should cream front one skimming be mixed with cream from another skimming unless it has first been well cooled. The most unsatisfactory of all suppliers is the man w...

THE CARNATION. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 10 January 1914
THE CARNATION. At the last meeting of the Northcott Horticultural Society members listened with interest to' the following paper by Mr. G. Magno, of Clarke street: Fond of all flowers, I am most at tached to the carnation; in fact my love for it has caused me to be called "a car nation fiend." I know of no flower in the horticultural world which, if treated properly will give the same quantity of beautiful blooms of such a lasting kind. It is no uncommon thing for a carnation to remain in a perfect state in the house for a week after it has been cut. What rose or other flower of equal merit will last so long? If the rose is queen of flowers, then the carnation must be king. Some authorities state thatcarnations do not thrive in the same bed for very many years. In other words that they take some elements from the soil that cannot be replaced until something else has been grown in their place. Now, this is an important matter to those who have only a limited space. My experi. once po...
