LETTERS TO M.P. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
LETTERS TO M.P. I Walter Tyler, aged 56, at one time an inspector of weights and measures under the Middlesex County Council, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey yes terday to writing and publishing libels against Mr W. S. Glyn-Jones, M.P., for Stepney (reports the "Daily News" of November 14). i It was explained by Mr Muir, for the prosecution, that on October 22, 190S. the County Council, in consequence of a report by a sub-committee signed by Mr Glyn-Jones, dismissed Tyler, who subsequently wrote to the prosecutor asking him to get him employment in some capacity. Last July, said counsel, a letter, of which the prisoner admits he was the author, was received by Mr Glyn-Jones. It was addressed to him at the House of Commons, and re-directed to his private house. It purported to come from some girl, and accused Mr Glyn Jones of being the father of her child. Money was demanded. Altogether there were eleven letters, all in the ■same handwriting, and they were sent in open envelopes. Of...
WHISTLER'S HONESTY OBJECTION TO "FAKE." [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
1 WHISTLER'S HONESTY OBJECTION TO "FAKE." "I'll have a clean plate," said Whist ler to Sir Frank Short, the distin guished painter-etcher, now President of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Professor of Engraving in the Royal College of Arts, on whose press some of the finest etchings of the fa mous "Thames set" were printed. "What was good enough for Rem brandt is good enough for; me," Whistler added. "I'll have my line as 1 made it" The reference was to the "smudge" effect which was obtained in engraving prints by leaving ink on the plate. The preference for "a clean plate" was characteristic of the great artist's implacable honesty. Sir Frank told his story in the course of his lec ture on "Etching and Engraving" at the Victoria and Albert Museum last night (says "The Westminster Ga zette" of November 28). Rembrandt's work, the lecturer said, contained the whole gamut of etching, and was still, and would remain, the great landmark of the art.
LONDON FOG TROUBLESOME PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
LONDON FOG - : I TROUBLESOME PROBLEM; ] The fog in London the other day (says the "Dally News") was an un pleasant reminder that the city is still far from having its fair share of . day light and fresh air. . In the last twenty years there has been a surprising improvement, • the average number of foggy days in the winter having been reduced from .30 to. 10, and the hours of bright sunshine from 55 to 93. but there .is still the deplorable fact that London -in the winter can be a more depressing and dirty place than any other citv in the world. " • ■^n spite of the encouraging advance there are still too many days when the ,J!d0"er ^ias *° about his business ■ j tingling eyes and choked lungs, and has to turn on the, light when the sun should be shining through the win dow. Whether London will ever be en tirely free from fog is very doubtful. The probability seems to be that there will always be fogs, but that they will gradually become less frequent and less black, till in the end...
The Land Question. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
The Land Question, The laud question iu England stands side by side with Home Rule as a topic which engages general attention. Many people accuse .Mi Lloyd-George of making it an ekctorul question to pave the way for the next appeal to the couu ttv! No one disputes that it is of a strikingly bold and original cha racter. Great changes have taken place iu the position of the farmers within the last it.) years. In 1870 the British fanner paid his laborer 12s a week, and lie got 5-1 s a quar ter for his wheat. Now he has to pay 15s a week to his farm hand, and sell his wheat at ;>2s a quarter. There we sec a process which has gone up iu expense and down iu income. Of course, it is not quite as bad as those figures indicate, be cause the cost of working the laud is less than it used to be; but the emuiugs for the laud owner are much smaller than they formerly were. The area under corn crops forty years ago was S,i'LM ,U00 acres. Inl'.Hlitwas 5,822,000. Wheat is little more than half ...
SPRAYING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
SPRAYING POTATOES. The attention of potato growers, drawn to the importance of spraying ! their crops with Bordeaux mixture as a protection against potato dise«si'- tn wet seasons spraying is of greai value while even in dry seasons, although n° disease may be apparent, the treatment is found to be beneficial, producing a longer period of growth and an incr&lt;-'as ed yield. The crop should bo >i"'a-v^ twice, and tlie first spraying take place as soon as there is good &lt;lf* velopment of haulm. About tin'1' weeks later the treatment sir^M repeated.' The ordinary Bordeaux nur ture, wliich has proved to bt> ve.i'.v cl" fective, is made as follows:—Sulp»at^ of copper'or "Milestone," 121b.: quio' lime, 61b.; water., 1001b.

PROPER FERTILISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
PROPER FERTILISATION. The greatest economic and y;cia! problem ever presented to man h tlie proper fertilisation of the soil. Neces sities are multiplying beyond Un dreams of those who lived a century ago. The consumption of cereals is ex tending, and is becoming a prominent part in the feeding of the peoples of all countries. The tilling of the soil, from being an incidental employment of eke-out existence, lias become the reliance of all civilised and halt-civi lised people^ and an industrial era has been born which involves entire trans formation of old methods Thus has the problem developed. I intensive cultivation of the soil lias l>e* come a necessity, and to enable U"* system to be prolonged, it has e'ltuilly become a necessity to restore in t;le soil the plant food taken from ^ it; All tillers of the soil will have feed their stock.

DUCHESS IN DICKENS' LAND [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
DUCHESS IN DICKENS' BAND The Duchess of Marlborough visited the Field-lane Ragged Mission School, Clerkenwell. yesterday (says the "Daily News" of November 14), and opened the Industrial Exhibition. There is to be seen the original Dickens letters to Mr S. R. Starey. first treasurer of Field-lane Ragged Schools. It is in teresting to recall that, speaking at the thirty-third annual meeting of the •schools, George Cruikshank said: "One reason for my suggesting the story of Oliver Twist to the late Charles Dick ens was my knowledge of Field-lane." The Duchess said yesterday that in the slums people could discover the fundamental impulse towards social service which existed in every one of us.
COURT IN TEARS TOUCHING APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
COURT IN TEARS TOUCHING APPEAL,. "With the whole court, including the jury, counsel, and the prisoner in tears, Mme. Poeckes was yesterday acquitted of the murder of her husband, whom she was accused of having shot (writes the Paris correspondent of the "Daily Mail" of December 1). Her counsel made an impassioned speech. He de fended iier from the charge of cynical indifference. She was frozen with grief, he declared. "There are some flowers," he added, "which open only at twilight, but they are none the less sweet for that." Depicting the grief which would have afflicted the dead man had he known that his wife would be charged with his death and the shame which would be the heritage of the prisoner's two young children were she condemned, he concluded with the words, "X beg for mercy in the name of the two babes— mercy in the name of the cradle." This* stirring harangue successfully swayed the minds of the jury.

Home-loving Celebrities. It is a popular belief that genius tan I only develop in "selfish solitude." \ f study of the lives of some of our great- I est writers and thinkers, however, le. f; veals the fact that much of their "hest. -work "was done after marriage. wlien : they enjoyed the -companionship uf f wives and children. Charles Kings](.v i for instance, had an ideal home, was never happier than when plavi,,., with his children- He gave them' the best of everything, the largest and ; sunniest rooms in the house, and the best part of the garden as a x>lav- j ground. Ho was passionately devoid! > to children, and their griefs made him ? sad. "A child weeping over a broken toy," he wrote, "is a sight ,1 cannot bear."

SEED MAIZE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
SEED MAIZE. It is important that only sucli ears be selected as have acquired the habit, of ripening on time. Also, care should • be taken not to neglect seed ears from plants or .varieties will yield less corn than those which use the entire sea son. However, the intelligent selec tion of seed corn in the field as ma turity approaches, is helpful if it takes into consideration the immedate envi ronment, particularly the stand of plants. A plant growing in a hill with two other plants should be rated much higher for having produced an ear of a given weight than a plant growing in a hill by itself, soil conditons being the same. In other words, the selecton of seed corn should. be made in the field where the growing plants may be con sidered in connection with their envir onment, and plants growing under less than normal stand or extra normal con ditions of any sort should, thereby, be disqualified, save in exceptional cases. A larger number of ears than are need ed should be selecte...
NEGLECT OF LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
. NEGLECT OF LUCERNE. The value of lucerne as a conmu'ivi.il crop appears to be little known 011 the average North Coast farm. When one considers the immense area of rich al luvial lands on the northern rivers thai are so admirably adapted to the suc cessful growth of this crop, and tin1 enormous quantities of valuable rn-li fodder that this perennial is capaM" of producing, it is really surprising why so l'eiv farmers make use of it. There is 110 doubt that the splendid ov inia! rainfall ensures practically suffi cient feed for general farm purposes from the ordinaiy pastures, but eveiy year experience teaches the necessity of doing a little more than to simply rely upon the natural herbage. The past winter has been a severe one to many dairymen. The heavy rains and floods of last autumn prevented the usual areas of green feed being plum ed for winter and early spring neqds and the effect of this upon farms tluii are well or even overstocked must lie apparent to anyone familiar wit...
Robber's Ten Commandments. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
Robber's Ten Commandsnents. Old Bill Miner, known—one might almost say esteemed—throughout tlio States as one of the most picturesque highwaymen of the last half-century, has died in Georgia State Prison Farm, near Milledgeville. ' It was his boast, the New York cor respondent of the "Telegraph" say?, that throughout his long spectacular career he never did a "really dishonor able tiling"—that is to say, dishonor able according to the strange code of the outlaws with whom for over liny years he had been intimately asxiei ated in the Far "West. He specialised on express trains, holding them lip at times single-handed. Among the ten commandment': he j obeyed was one which said: "Never take i what belongs to another man: rob only j corporations." Others were: "Never fail to help a woman"; "Keep every man's goodwill, and give a fellow mon ey when he needs it"; "Never say a bad thing about a man when you can say a good one"; "Don't squeal." lie devoted half his time to robbing aii'l half...
THE SHADOWS FROM THE PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
THE SHADOWS FROM THE PAST. -By Oswald Clifford. Wilfrid Desmond pushed away the last paper that had demanded his at tention. an intricate estimate on which his mind had been closely centred for the past hour, and, rising from his desk stared nut through the old-fashioned, diamond paned window on to the bnsv High-street of this thriving market town, to which lie had himself di'ifted live years ago, from nowhere, it seem ed. And now between him and the busy street, another vision seemed to rise— a picture of the past, a vision of hide ously-garbed men at work in Portland quarries beneath the watchful gaze of armed warders, and amongst those branded 1110:1—hiniseil. . . "I wonder what these respected citi zens would sav if they knew the truth?" lie luusc.d, rather grimly, as he glanced down at the thronged street, for it was market dav and the little town was .crowded.

BENEFITS OF IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
BENEFITS OF IRRIGATION. The extraordinary yield and other beneficial effects on agriculture that have followed a proper system of irri gation in various parts of the world, have been so marked it is a wonder that in many places jn this State, where there are abundant possibilities of water supply, more advantage has not been taken of irrigation. The large crops on many varied soils, following wet seasons, ought to be an object-les son, the value of which should not bo rejected. But there is the fear, that, ill many cases, it will have the con trary effect—that Nature, having given an exceptional quantity of water on one occasion, the farmer will rest sat isfied'that this will recur in the future. Instead of taking advantage of the fact that he could himself ensure a pro per water supply, it is thought prob able that he will still continue to leave, the efficient watering of his land to chance. But the object-lesson of a wet season should not really be re quired, because it was only ...
THE AWAKENING OF FOGGY [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
THE AWAKENING OF FOGGY By Vincent Ems. It is possible to be very, very clever and very, very green—a real verdant green. It is also possible to ripen un expectedly. • Then there is trouble— for someone—as Mr. Frederick Gan— ton, otherwise Foggy, could tell you now. Mr. F. 0. Q. was twenty seven—a sufficiently mature age—and he dealt in all the re's"—carbon, crystals, chem istry, crucibles, and so forth—with all the'enthusiasm of an amateur and all the luck of a beginner. He rediscovered several processes on which fortunes had been made and lost, and-of which the master patents I had long since expired, nor was he un duly depressed at finding that he had been anticipated by a period nearly equal to the tale of his years. Ho was not careful in the selection of his pa tent agent, and it is regrettable to state that that gentleman took Foggy's fees, and broke "the news of the afore said anticipation afterwards. But in between these excellent and belated discoveries he hit upon others, o...
CLOVER A SOIL IMPROVER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 23 January 1914
CLOVER A SOIL IMPROVER. Clover is tlie best soil improver, be cause it better fills the soil with roots, which decay and fill the soil with hu mus. The clover belongs to the class of plant which are nitrogen gatherers. Clover feeds or mineral matter in the soil, and nitrogen in the air out of the reach of crops. The. clover is a more valuable food than most grasses, be cause it contain; more protein; the manure is more valuable. than from Timothy hay, and the roots left in the ground contain so much nitrogen that when we can grow clover successfully we are on the way to solve the most difficult problems of farming. Farm ers who stop growing clover are mak ing a great mistake, and they should study the plant and how to grow it. Tho main cause of clover not growing well is lack of lime in the soil. There is nothing of such importance as get ting back to clover-growing. Organic matter in the clover is the farmer's hank account, and clover best furnish es it. Lime and good tillage will ...
