THE FARM. THE EARLY CARE OF CHRYSANTHEMUMS. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 6 March 1914

THE FAfiM. . _—♦—— rHE EARLY CARE OF CHRY SANTHEMUMS. Very much of the success we desire Ib growing Chrysanthemums depends upor he attention the plant receives during the early stage of its existence. If neglected then, as most plants are by the amateur, it falls into a habit, if I may be allowed fo use the term, from which it is never ikely to fully recover. What should be aimed at is a good start. Large pots are "Not necessary at first, nor advisable, but a rich soil is. The plant is a great eater and requires rich food, without which it becomes starved and dwarfed. A strong, healthy growth should be secured as a foundation for future usefulness. While the plant is quite young, one must determine on the form to train it in, and begin operations promptly. If a shrub is wanted, pinch off the top, and branches will start below. These, when developed,will give the bushy form which many prefer for this plant. If preferred to grow it as a tree, allow no branches to grow along the stem o...

A Blind Bass. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 13 March 1914

A Blind Bass. Captain Maieas, manager of the old Iron Pier at Coney. Island, recently ex hibited a totally blind striped bass which was oaught in the surf togother with half a dozen othes baBs. They were captured with rod and reel, with sandworms for bait. One eye of the blind bass was gone, having evidently been torn out by a hook, •&nd the other eye was covered with 8 heavy cataract. The question which wil] now Interest the scientific world is, Can fish smell? This question, like the ques tion "Can fish hear," has long been an interesting one. This bass certainly had tho sense of smell well developed or it could not have procured its food. Tho Captain advanced the theory that the other bass guided their unfortunate com fianion up to its food, but the canniba! stic nature of all fish conflicts with this idea. The fish was in good coalition, aud was as fat as the others. I* w eighed two and one half pounds. "Striped bass are about the kc^fiest fish intellectually of all the ...

Wrsns In a Coffee-Pot. A most peouliar bridal home, wherein to live for a season, and train up chil dren, is that described by a correspond ent of Forest and Stream. ^ One day two wens entered his Texan cottage and began exploring it, evidently in . tending to build a nest there. They peeped into every corner and finally went away, with the air of would-be tenants who nay. "they will look else where;" but in half an hour they re turned, and the inmates of the cottage, wishing to furnish them with a resi dence all their own, hung an old coffee pot on a tree near the door, tying it se curely that the wind might not shake it. The wrens presently discovered it, entered it, and were apparently de lighted. It was evidently just the sort of house for which they had been look tog. The next day its furnishing was quite Enfehed, They had lined it with bita of feathers, shreds of wool, and downy vegetable growths, and it was soft as velvet. Then one egg appeared, and Chen another, and the litt...

That upheaval or inva 1 sion, which is to eclipse anyof tho ex peditions of Genghis Khan and other celebrated Eastern leaders, has not yet been attempted, but there is evi dence enough of China's awakening to show that the poet was not a tiue prophet, and the soldier, or man of action, had more prescience....

Why Won't Men Be Sincere with Themselves. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 13 March 1914

tVhj Wott't Men Be Sincere witli . *9 Themselves. ^ It is the custom of many persona tf purchase, at the end of each year, . "diaries," in which they propose to set ' down thelt daily thoughts and acts— . to write, in faot, their own private his tories in. a series of annual volumes. As these autobiographical memo randa are only intended for the eyes of the parties who commit them to paper, it might be thought'that they would be candid and authentic. But this is sel dom the case. Few men are entirely sincere, even with themselves. Few are willing to paint themselves as they , really are and know themselves to be, even though none but themselves can contemplate the picture. . -Unquestionably hundreds of indi viduals who keep diaries, tell fibn, overreach their neighbors, are guilty of detraction, repay good with evil, put an enemy in their mouths to steal away their brains, use profane language, and in oilier ways transgress the moral law. Yet were all the diaries in existence pub'is...

Often; thera was not even the semblance of a, road, and the preacher found his way by tii© compass, or, if he had none, by the course of the sun by day and by the stars by night. If he lost his oourse, there was nothing for him to do but oamp out all night. If ha had the means he built a fire to scare away the wolves, bears, and even the more dreaded panthers.
