Manures and commercial fertilisers, while valuable, are not always obtain able. Farmers waste the barnyard manure, and feel thai thoy cannot af ford to buy commercial fertilisers. To fill the bill there must be something within easy access of every farm. The answer to this is—green manures. The kins of legumes used in green manuring is lucerne. Xot only does it answer every requirement of a green manure, but is is also one ol the most valuable of the standard crops. You may be cropping a given piece of land to lucerne, obtaining each year from five to seven cuttings, and at the same time you have at hand the means of restoring the fertility of the soil upon ...

Ulte JUtoeriiser :BiUt>ll«had 1677: PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY 8VEN1N0. Friday, Jany. 16th., 1914. Uifles of Local Manufacture. The Litlignw Small Aruis Fac tory ooBt £280,000, it has been in existence over 12 months, and has turned out 1000 rifles. At this furious rate of progress our citizens army will he fully equipped with weapons in the course of the next 50 or 100 years, and then there will be no work for the Small Arms Factory to do. Perhaps though a new rifle will havebsen introduced before that, and of course the fac tory will be kuocked out of its im petuous stride for a bit, while learn ing the intricacies of the new wea pon. So that there is no reason to anticipate that the cosily experi ment will be thrown on our hands in tha immediate future.

"Now, sir," said counBel lor the de fence, "I suppose we may take it, from tho flattering description you have givon of the testator, his good points, and his personal appearanca generally, that you were intimately acquainted with him?" "Him!" exclaimed tho witneBS. "He was no acquaintance o£ mine!" "Indeed! Well, then, you muBt have observed him very carefully whenever you saw him?" pursued counBel. "I never saw him in my life," was the reply. "Now, now, don't trifle with the Court, please! How, I ask you, could you, in the name of goodneBB, de scribe him so minutely if you never saw him or never knew him?" "Well," replied the witness, and tho smile which overspread his features extended to the faces ot thoBe in court, "you see, I married his widow."'

Purer than we judge we Bhould— We should love each other 'better, It we only understood. I Could wo judge all deeds by motives, | See the good and bad within, i Often ivo should love the einner, All the while we loathe the sin. Could wo know the powers working To overthrow integrity, Wo should judge each other's errors With more patient charity. If we knew the cure and trials, Knew the effort all in vain, And the bitter disappointment, Understood tho loss and gain; Would the grim external roughness Seem, I wonder, just the same? Would we help where now we binder? Would we pity where we blame? Ah! wo judge each other harshly, Knowing not life's hidden force; Knowing not tho fount ot action Is less turbid at its source.

COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 16 January 1914

COMMENTS WISE AND OTHERWISE. There are certain people in the ; world whom the more you think of the less you think of them. Surely it isn't extraordinary to get pearls out of a matchbox. Lots of girls have got diamonds out of mugs before now. According to a Paris paper, "Seventy per cent, of the French people live in on6 room." But it must be a jolly big room. A Russian dwarf of 4ft. has, we learn, fallen in love with a St. Peters*1 burg lady of 6ft. 2in. That's not fall- j ing in love—that's climbing up to it. j "It is rare indeed," says a contem porary, "that a householder can get a shock from his electrical installa tion." He generally gets that when the bill comes along.
