In Rural England THIS "GKEAT HAtl." OP WINCHB9 TBS CASTLK.—QUAINT RKUCS. BY P. P. SULUVAN, IN THtt "msujouknk ADVOCATB.'1 To the west of the Winchester Cathedral is tlie tombstone of "Thomas Fletcher, the Hampshire Grenadier," who died in 1764. He was evidently a thirsty soldier, for he died of a "violent fever, contract ed by the drinking of small beer, when hot!" Leaving the old Cathedral gronndo, we wandered through the streets of Winchester to find a restaurant. As we stood by a lamp-post and gazed, like a party of "way-hacks," at the quaint old buildings, there was food for reflection. Here once upon a time was the capital city of the ; early Britons, of the Celts, Romans, Saxons, Danes and Normans. Ac | cording to history, Winchester was the centre of many mighty move ments, and in it all the early kings were crowned. In a sort of''square" stands, on a rough hewn pedestal, a fine figure of Alfred the Great. His right hand is raised' high above his covered head, and grasps a sw...

Thoso who havo Just commenced poultry keeping and havo soma last year's birds would do well to realise what thoso with experience have learnt, that a hen which moults be fore tlio winter is more valuable than a pullet, because Bho lays largo eggs, and generally quite as many of them.

THE AMATEUR'S NEED OF ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 16 January 1914

THE AMATEUR'S NEED OF ADVICE. Amateur poultry-keepers must not expect to succeed and find everything to go on smoothly at the first with out the aid oC advice from some ex perienced person. This needs to he clearly understood. There is a great deal of knowledge to he acquired in the work of poultry-keeping, and there is no one who knows so much tliat cannot still learn more, even af tor having had years of practical ex perience. Fanciers of wide experience are generally glad of hints from oth ers as to their ways and methods, and are ready and willing still to learn. Beginners, however, are often too self reliant, and will neither ask for ad vlco nor yet take it If it is offered freely. The result is they make many blunders often before they have well begun, and thus blight their prospects of success completely. >. "A good beginning is half the bat tle." But to be self-reliant and plunge hastily iuto the work without thought' and care at the start is only to pave the way to failu...

It was committed under the inilky light of a full moon. The witnesses were able to idea f?fy the defendant on account of the brilliance of the moonlight. The de fendant could not prove an nlibl, and things looked pretty 'bad for him.

Thereupon a great laugh resounded through tho court room, and the defendant was .speedily acquitted. "Colonel." said the defendant, after war<!s, "how much do I owo you?"

ASHES FOR PIGS. It has been noted by pig-breeders that health and thrift are prolonged to a great degreo by allowing con stant access to ashes, and if salt be mixed with them, the effect is still more marked, and the composition is partaken of with greater relish.
