THE FATIGUE POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 31 January 1914

THE FATIGUE POINT. Nothing is so bciiufitiinl to a man or a woman ag to relax every muscle of tho body, to Jio or at least to sit ivith closed eyes for a short tmfb every day. Many peoplo cannot sleep, many can only spare a quarter of an hour lor tins rest, but if tlio.se would make a point oi> talcing just what they can they would soon find a murlad dilferenco 111 their health. A human being tan work every day up to tile point of fa tigue without feeling any tho worse, in fact it may bo said that hundreds would feel infinitely better if they had to work to tho fatigue point every day of their lives. Thoy would not then complain of loss of appetito or inability to sleep. I3ut these ill ef fects, if tliey ariso from want of work, also attack tlioso who habitually pass the fatigue point.

It yields between 700!b and 8001b to the acre, with no more water''than tho scanty rainfall of Arizona gives. Under the same conditions, ordinary beans yield only from 66lb to 1401b to the acre..

Apple Packing. PROPER. PICKING ESSENTIAL FOR PERFECT PACKING. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 31 January 1914

Apple Packing. riiOPER. PICKING ESSENTIAL FOB PLORFFCT PACKING. It frequently required a nice judg ment to determine tlio proper timo for picking apples. If picked too soon the fruit will be undersized aiul poorly col ored, thus injuring seriously both its quality null appearance in the pack age. It' allowed to hang on too Jong, its keeping quality is impaired and danger of loss by high \vind,s is multi plied. No definite rule can be laid down as to. timo of picking. When the fruit, on being twisted one-hali' around will snap cleanly from the spur without breaking the stem, it should be picked, lied apples are usually picked when they have assumed. ;t normal colour, and yellow apples when they have at tained tlio proper size and the seeds beconio browned. There are great dif ferences, however, between varieties. The Jonathan must be pioked as soon as colored or it will not keep in stor age, tho lied Astraclnm becomes mealy and often cracks when left for oven u day or two after colou...

This building .-.-as originally a warehouse, but bars :ad been placed at all the windows, -md as it stood quite detached, it was a comparatively easy matter to guard it securely with a small force and keep every door and window m full view from without. There were 1200 army officers kept in this prison. They were •allowed to wander practically all over the building, with the exception of the cellars. Of these, only one was not generally in use, and to gain aecess to this, the bricks at the back of a fire place were removed, and an S-shapedt passage marie into the cellar. This ' work was tlone at night with a knife end an old chisel. and the bricks re placed for the next day, as the fire place was in constant use. The cellar .having been reached, the...

The woman who works is inevitably a woman who is broad in her views, j Her opinions are not riveted to any | one Bpot. Her point of view is mov- i able. Her experience in the business ' mart gives her sympathy for other wo- ! men workers. She has learned to ac- j cept every friend, new and old, at ail honest valuation. She learns to enjoy the society of people who'have made something out of life.
