JOHNNIE'S JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 26 February 1914

JOHNNIE'S JOKE. Toole's was a brand of humour that went.out with the pun and the practi cal joke. The things the comedian and hig friends did off the stage, as a matter of course'and "to raise a laugh," would tcMiay bring them within the clinches of the law on many occasions. The pun was less devastating a a rule. Sims Reeves told the story in his renj'nisoences how he was playing the irb of Tom Tug in company with his friend Toole, who was also a member of the cast. In the "Waterman," he explains; a word or two of a gag was held permissible; and, partly to amuse the audience, partly to astonish his fel low actor, Reeves, in a certain scene, in reply to Toole's question, "What's the meaning of all this?" replied, "The meaning1 of it is that you've been made i tool of, and I'qi a happy, fellow." "Johnnie lookedv very' much surpris ed," Reeves relates, "and as a popu lar comedian does not, if he can help it, allow himself ^fco bes scored off, he, after a moment's reflection — during w...

THE FARM. TOMATO GROWING EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 26 February 1914

THE FARM. - ^ TOMATO GROWING EXTRA ORDINARY. The "Int.ernation Horticultural Grade Journal" of October 30th, 1912, publishes the following very in teresting article upon tomato grow ing by Mr. W. P. Vanding, of Guern sey "In the last week of March, 1912, I planted one house, 120 by 20 feet. For thirteen years my ground has not seen either a fork or spade. I never dig my ground in any of ray green houses. The last 13 years 'j have invited once a year all Guern sey growers and others. This year my house bearing this crop was opened to the public the whole of the first week, in July. I always make it a point to show the tomatoes on the plants previous to offering the seeds for sale. This year I have beat all previous records as to a heavy crop. 1 announced this crop *as being grown without any manure whatever. This wa^e. mystery to all growers. I never dig manure in the ground, since 1 never dig it, but every crop I give two heavy liquidings with well-decay ed horse manure and wit-h, e...

HIS WIFE'S CHOICE. Witli an apologetic air the worried man who had been gazing in the decor ator's windows finally entered and asked to see samples of wall papers. "About what price?" askod the clerk. "lSighteenpenoe' a roll," said the man. "My wife won't pay any more." "Well," said the assistant, taking down a roll, "here is something in light colours that " "Oh, no, that won't do. My wife says the children get light-coloured pa per soiled too quickly." . "Here is something in a darker shade with " "That won't do at all. My wife wouldn't like that because it makes the room too dark." "Here is a design in a medium tone " "I'm afraid not," said' the man v-rvously.

CHAPTER XIX. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 26 February 1914

CHAPTER XIX. Mildred's strength had niy this time I almost left her, and she sat down, j taking a seat near her brother and looking with some degree of rage at poor Barnes. - . As "for •,Barnes, his emotion had overcome him completely. His pale face was turned towards Bill Jones almost beseechingly. His nerve, which j had never before failed him, had de- J serted him in the hour of greatest j need. He sat mute and silent, un- j heeding the command of Bill Jones to tell the story of his rise to great ness. "Well, said Bill .Jones; turning to Mildred, and emitting another of his j soul-sickening guffaws, "if he won't tell you, I'll tell you what I know. Then he may tell the rest. This chap was arrested in New York. You re member when I did the three months for—you know what—well, the last 'month .this fellow was sentenced to thirty days for vagrancy and assault ing a policeman.

CHAPTER XVIII. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 26 February 1914

CHAPTER XVIII. In order to connect the visit of Dr. Carpenter to Marchmere with other events bearing on the result, we must go back in our history a short time, and take up the thread of that portion of the narrative touching 'on the life of the false Lord Chester in London. We have already seen the effect of Mildred Moore's wonderful beauty upon Sir Peter Steedc. From the time he made his first call on her, ' with the purpose in viiew of entreat ing her to set Lord Chester free from her ensnaring friendship, there arose a tremendous rivalry between these two gentlemen for her smiies. If Lord Chester presented the singer. with a diamond bracelet, Sir Peter went him one better, and gave her something a little more costly. Sir Peter had sprung at once into her favour by buying for her the coveted diamond necklace which had been beyond the means of Barnes. It is_ apparent at once that Barnes had little chance for success in this war of extrava gance, for Sir Peter had his millions to d...

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. OR, THE HEIR TO A DUKEDOM : A HUGE PERSONATION FRAUD. >—: .By S. W. Hopkins, Author of "On 11 Pour Brass Plates," etc., etc. PART 12. . .CHAPTER XVII.—(Continued.) One day Helen received a letter that made hor heart leap. I "We are coming to England," wrote j Abingdon. "Burton is doing splen- j didly, physically, but he nas grown ] restless again. He is still looking for J that girl. This is troublesome here. I for all the women have black eyes and black hair—that is, most of the I pretty ones. Once in a while we see j a very light blonde, but these are apparently no better to Burton than the brunettes. I would like to try agaip the , effect on him of a girl with blue eyes and dark brown hair." There was great chattering over this. Mr. Brooke sat for a long time listening-. He had heard considerable about the doctor and his t^ueer pa : tient of late, since the days got cold enough to keep him indoors more. "You two young ladies do a great deal of talking," ho...

AMERICAN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 26 February 1914

AMERICAN AGRICULTURE. An American expert says of Agri culture in the United States:—"There is good authority for the assertion that the farmer could take from the same area of ground in four years grain crops as much as seven years now give him. leaving the products of the other three yearg when the land rested from grain, as a clear profit due to better methods. He can do far more than that by joining live-stock raising with grain raising. Nature lias provided cattle to go with the land. . . What our people have to do is to cover less ground, cultivate smaller farms so as to make the most of them, instead of getting a scant and uncertain yield from several hundred acres."

THE MATCH-MAKER. Old Pat and I went to catch shrimps in the rocks below the cliffs, and after a morning's hard work, we caught about a dozen! "I "never saw the like of it,"said he, thrusting his net under a rock as he spoke, and then withdrawing it- in disgust. "There's no vacancy in it at all. It's in a vacancy you get them I" He examined- the oontents of the net. "There's one, anyway," he said, throwing the twisting shellfish to wards me. He threw two little green fish with large heads on the sand. "There's any amount of those things," he xeclaimed and then suddenly threw his net dawn, and running towards a large rock, fell on his knees and be gan pulling at a great red crab. "There's something, anyway!" We packed the crab into the basket, • and covered it with seaweed, and thus ' deluded it remained quiet. I told Pat I did not think it was much good try ing to find any more shrimps," and he, agreed with me. So we sat down on the rocks for a while and gossiped. I have forgotten ho...

FAINTING. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 26 February 1914

FAINTING. There are a great many causes of fainting, but the main basis of it is a general feebleness of the blood. In some cases there is a constitutional tendency to it, and euriously enough, this ia frequently done away with by a familiarity with scenes that other times would produce the most violent fauitness. Young medical students, just beginning their career, have been known to be overcome by the scenes ol the dissecting-room, who in after life became very, famous, and so to speak, callous surgeons. Many young sol diers, who in very many cases, had hardly left their mother's apron striugs when they enlisted, and who had faint ing fits &t slight even of an animal being tortured, have early learned to view'all the horrors; of a disastrous battle-field without, the ordinary compunotious of the fainfc-hearied. Other causes of the tendency to faint ness are' indigestion, and an over-ween ing sympathy, and a case of fainting itself, when ocouring among the very sympathetic,...

DWARF PEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 26 February 1914

DWARF PEARS. An American authority says: WJiei-" dwarf pears are to be used, the Angers Quinoe is the best stock. The Po^'ii gese can be used, however, to good ad vantage where the climate is very tnild. The quince should be worked to either Koonce or Angoulemc, and these in turn are worked over to .vliat varieties are .desired. While 'be dwarf pears have not been tried ou very extensively as yat, 'ther3 ai'e some people who believe they are a bet ter commercial proposition: that the standards. T The distance for planting pears will vary from 22ft t® 30ft, according to soil and climate. Many of our variet ies of pears are sterile and do not set fruit well with their own pollen. The Cornice oomes in this class, and the Anjou sets fruit poorly with its own pollen. In fact even with self-sterile varieties I would recommend planting so as to secure cross pollenation. I would suggest two lists, early bloomers and late bloomers. For Oregon, the early bloomers are Bartlett, Clairgeau, Anjo...

A COMPLETE MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Rupanyup Spectator and Lubeck, Banyena, Rich Avon and Lallat Advertiser — 26 February 1914

A COMPLETE MANURE. A complete solution for perfect pro duction of plant and fruif'can be made up of calcium nitiate, potassium phos phate, potassium chloride, magnesium sulphate, ferric sulphate. If these in gredients were added to a jar of .water, in the proper proportions, perfect growth of plant and fruit would re sult. The other plant requirements such as the compounds of carbon with hydrogen and oxygen, would be drawn from the air. From the above it will be seen that .10 plant requires in the soil nitrogen phosphoric acid, potash, calcium, chlor ine, magnesium, sulphur, and a little iron, besides the elements of carbon, L.vclrogen, and oxygen drawn from the air. if the elements named are pre sent in the soil in an available form and ample proportion, perfect plant and food production results; but if any one of these elements is absent, the normal development of the plant is im possible. Analysis of the ash of plants.shows that sodium and silicate are present, J but it is a much...
