I think you should make known your Pedic "Pomade £or the head. Its effect is miraculous.

THE WRONG PLACE FOR FICTION [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

T-HE WRONG PLACE FOR FICTION Mr. Irvin S. Co.bb, the American writer of short stories, returning from a trip in the Western States, found that a close friend of his had fallen into the hands of the law. He hur ried down to the friend's lawyers. "Why, Jack is the dearest, kindest, most honest man in the world!" he said. "You must call me as a wit ness to his character."^ "Not while I'm his.lawyer!" was £lie"reply. "I know just what would happen. The other man's lawyer would ask your occu pation. And you'd say, 'I'm a writer of fiction.' And the lawyer would get up and stand over you and look into the dark recesses of your heart for a time. And by-and-by, despairing of finding one sweet, aspiring thought in you, he would turn to the jury. And he would exchange an intelli gent, liberrous smile with the twelve. And then he would sit down, and, without even troubling to look in your direction, he would say, 'That is quite enough, Mr. Cobb! You may stand down!"'

FOR THE FARMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

FOR THE FARMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. B. Harrison, Burringbar, Tweed River, inquires as to the proper meth od. of making a good and clieap com post heap, for manuring purposes. The compost heap is a most valu able adjunct to a farm or orchard. The principle of this method of mak ing manure is the fermentation of easily-decomposed vegetable material in the presence of earth and lime. It is not only substances like peat, litter, straw, which form the usual basis of compost .heaps that arc thus decom posable, tout almost every kind of or ganic substance, both of vegetable and animal origin, can be thus composted. Dead leaves, bush scrapings, sawdust, weeds, tops and stalks of vegetables, as well as bone and animal refuse, the operation is much slower, and sub stances like bones should, be first crushed. Jt is also important to be sure that animal refuse so treated is not derived from a diseased source. As a general method of procedure, the following will 'be found satisfac tory :—Make a he...

CULTIVATION OF CARROTS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

CULTIVATION OF CARROTS. The carrot, which is not grown so extensively as it might be with advan tage, resembles in composition the turnip and mangold, but it is much" more concentrated than the former, as it contains from 14 to 20 per cent, of dry nutritive matter against about 10 in the turnip. It flourishes best in deep loamy soils, not too wet, or the carrots are liable to rot, and not very dry, or tlie growth of the root is cramped. The soil must be deeply cultivated to per mit the long-penetrating root full power of development. The ground should be well manured. Iialf-rotted stable manure, applied in the autumn at the rate of twenty loads to the acre, is a good prepara tion. •The requirements of the carrot Cor a' liberal supply of plant food are so great that, in addition to the dung, it can utilise with advantage a supple mentary dressing of readily soluble chemical fertilisers. 'The application of 3cwt. superphosphate, 26 per cent, soluble, and Vjcwt. of sulphate of pot ash,...

CONVENIENCES IN FARM HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

CONVENIENCES IN FARM HOMES. One of the strongest objections to country life by those who live iu cities is that the conveniences of the farm home are' few, and that the work of the housewife is made a .much greater hardship than it is in the cities. This Is, as a rule, the case. The ordinary form home has not L' e labor-lighten ing improvements of the city home. There is no plumbings in the house by which the luxury of the bathroom can be had, no running water, 110 sew age system, heating is done by stoves instead of furnaces, and the whole plan of the house is to increase the steps of the good housewife rather than to lessen them. .. Now, this is not as it should be. The farmer and his wife should have as many of the luxuries of life as may be possible, and it is possible to ar range the .house of the farm so that many of the necessities of the city house may be had. Recently equipped farm homes are usually better equip ped than are those of several yeais ago. This is 'by reason th...

CONDITION OF SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

CONDITION OF SOIL. If tlie land Is wet and cold when seed is sown, even though the germi nation is good, the young plants re ceive such a severe check that they never wholly recover The land In tended for spring and summer crops should "be carefully prepared some time 'before the period for sowing. Then just previous to seeding, the surface should be cultivated, so as to give a fulness to the surface soil and still have the ground firm under neath. The principal advantage of this method is that the moisture col lected from rains is retained in the lower layers of the furrow, and is there for the use of the crop. Where as, if ploughed up or deeply cultiva ted in the spring, there is always the risk that the drying winds of the spring Avill rob the soil'of too much moisture, leaving insufficient for the use of the crop. In .districts with .a heavy rainfall that is ^evenly distributed over the whole of the season this precaution is not so important, but in other dis tricts not so fortu...

The Heart of a Girl. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER III.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

The Heart of a Girl. By HENRY FARMER, Author of "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER III.—Continued. Hilary Stanmore's injuries were not as serious as at first supposed. For the time toeing that was all which mat tered 'to Queenie. Shock had stunned her; but she told herself that present ly, when she could think more clear ly, when her still terrible suspense as to Hilary's condition was relieved, this unreal charge against him must dis solve like an ugly nightmare at wak ing. Her suffering and her suspense, only partially allayed by what the pa per told her, were relative to the man himself. If it were possible, she would travel to Hasted this night. Home—yes! She must go home first to get money for the railway fare and put together a few things. She was hurrying on again, spurred into such feverish liaste by her thoughts that Beryl had trouble to keep, pace with her. In Oxford-street 'she ibeckoned a taxi-cab. It was the latest t...

WARMTH IN SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 6 January 1914

WARMTH IN SOIL. The power of the soil to absorb warmth is dependent in a great measure on the amount of moisture in the soil and its colour. The darker in colour a soil iu the quicker can it absorb warmth, and the lighter in colour, the longer will it bo in attain ing warmth. Soils containing much moisture are always colder than dry soils, hence the great advantage of draining wet lands. Soils rich in humus absorb warmth quickly, but also give off the warmth rapidly. With damp clay soil the action is the reverse. They take a long time in acquiring a higher temperature, but, on the other hand, they attain their warmth better. By the appli cation of farm-yard manure, com posts, cultivation, and draining the farmer is in a position to improve the condition ot his soil. If wheat is grown in two soils, one dark, tho other light, but treated in all other respects in exactly the same way, the crop in the darker soil will mature more quickly and better than the crop in the light soil. It is...
