" .Excuse me, ma'am," said a seedy-looking, sliifty eyed individual in the corner to a buxom matron sitting opposite, "d'ye mind my looking at your ticket a moment?" . The matron looked some what surprised, but placed her ticket in the outstretched hand: The seedy individual studied it for a moment, then, ccolly,tearing off a corner, handed it back as the train pulled up. He passed on with the crowd to the bar rier, but just as lie got to the ticket coilector lie oried, "I've forgotten un stick," and dashed back to the car riage. Haviug recovered his'stick, lie appr'oaohed the ticket, collector boldly and attempted to pass through. "Tic ket, please." "I gave it up just now. I've been back for my stick.""

New Desert Bean. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 5 February 1914

New Desert Bean. Professor II. W. Clothier, of the University of Arizona, has discovered a new variety of bean, well adapted for cultivation in dry climates. Dur ing a 1300 mile journey over tho deserts and mountains of Arizona, lie visited tho Papago Indians, and got from thein several hundred bruwiush-yt llow beans of an unknown variety. TJieso lie planted on experimental plots at the Arizona. Experimental Farm for four years before the discovery was announ ced. It appears that the new bean, which had been named the "upary" bean, is more prolific under dry con ditions tban any other known variety. It yields between 7001b and SOOlb to tho acre, with no more water than the scanty rainfall of Arizona gives. Under tho same conditions, ordinary beans yield only from 661b to 1401b to tho acre. Agricultural progress has-been made by men who were not satisfied with what was good enough for their *<rand father#..

Grit for the Fowls. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 5 February 1914

Gritfor the Fowls. .' Some people hare the impression iliac it-is "not necessary to supply grit to fowls which are on free range, as the birds will find sufficient for their needs. This may be true when there is a gravel road or seashore, etc., near by to which the fowfs have access; otherwise not. In a month's time a large fioek of 7- wis daily foraging over the -amo space will dear away all the suitable grit from a large area. ! Unless the folws can range where there is an unlimited supply- of grit, it will bo necessary to provide then with a supply'after a certain length ot tiiao, iio matter how much range they enjoy. On land where poultry had never been kept ebl'ore, a llcok mighc pcss.bly get along for several years a"th the grit which the fowls couki tuul at fiar.d, but except in ' favored mtuat.ons the grit supply runs out. So tio poultry keeper must supply the lack. G'rii may be bought,'as there are many brands in the market. But with a grit mill and the material, the poultr...

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. ABOUT PATENT LAW. '*Wiieu patent specifications are lodg ed, are they accepted fay the Govern ment in that form?" The answer fay Mr. G. G.

We now. give further details of Aus tralian Patent .Law, in continuation of the matter- on the subject in our pre vious issue, and as supplied by Mess-rs. Turri & Co.

NATIONAL APPLE DAY. ENCOURAGIN FRUIT CONSUMPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 12 February 1914

NATIONAL APPLE DAY. ENCOURAGIN FRUIT CONSUMP TION. One of tlio happiest ideas that have comd' to us from American fruitgrowers (says the "Journal"! is than of a National Apple Day, the object being to bring before the great communities of city consumers, in the most attrac tive manner possible, the virtues ol the apple, not only as a choice itom of dessert, but as a valuable, everyday article of diet. The idea could bo copied with distinct advantage in this country. As the National Apple Day would bo primarily a great advertising • campaign, on behalf of the king of fruits, the scheme would require to bo designed on a generous scale, and in a manner which would appeal to the greatest! number of consumers. It may be rather ambitious to adopt one American feature—the free distribu tion of apple pies (special machinery at tho Spokane National Apple Show turn ed out these pies at a rate of 2250 per hour). However, it would certainly pay well to give choice apples for sale in the streets...
