NOW AND YEAES AGO. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 20 February 1914
NOW AND YEAES AGO. It doesn't do any good to compile itatiatica on marriage, write articles on why women do not marry, or rail at women for going out into the world to earn a living. As long as there are hearts an'd consciences to be consult ed, they will bo followed by most women. The only difference between to-day and an older day is that independent women can afford now to wait for a great love or die without it. Onco tbere was nothing to do but accept the first; man that happened along, and not.'be slow about it for fear ano ther might never come. Nobody need get grey over the fact that the mod ern woman is going to stifle her affec tions or make them a willing sacri fice to ambition. The workshop of character is every lay life. . Tlio trouble with some men is thai they..think.they wc.e cut out for pace makers when they were really entered merely to fill the required number o! .tarteri..
The Earth's Heart-throbs. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 20 February 1914
The Earth's Heart-throbs. This earth of ours is by no menus solid or firm. The solid part on which wo walk and build and in which wo burrow is only a shell covering a molten yolk. And this shell throbs with many and divers motions, to say nothing of the earthquakes and eruptions that every now and thon shatter and shako it. and rip it open. . Some of these motions aro regular and rhythmic. Twice a day the moon lifts and lets fall not only all the waters of the surface,, but also all the continents and "mountains and cities. Every slightest shock posses through the earth. Seismographs (earthquake registering instruments) are now so dclicnte that they register the hammering of a horse's hoofs upon a road miles away, while every breaker upon the beach writes the - record of the shock it imparts to the earth. Certain parts of the earth are steadily rising higher above the sea, while other parts are slowly sub siding. Sometimes thesa slow and gradual motions become violent and spasmodic....

INCREASING FAT IN MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 20 February 1914
INCREASING FAT IN MILK. Numerous efforts have been mad» to ascertain whether the fat content of milk man bo increased by liberal feed ing. ." Most results have tended to show that little or no variation in the quality of the product can be made. The true dairy cow responds quickly in the. quantity of milk produced when large rations of suitable food are given, and thus an increased am ount of butter fat is gained. It is, howover, no use forcing any cow that has not a strong milking tendency, as mch an animal will put on flesh quickly, and the dairy returns will probably be very little increased. "Science Siftings" states:-"In the most recent attompt to increase (he fat of milk by liberal feeding of the cows, the testcovered a period of foul years with a herd of about 20 animals. The first year's test was conductcd on tho farm of the owner. Then the herd was divided, half of them taken to an experiment station and put on liberal feed of 12 lbs. to 14 lbs. of grain pel day.

A Wonderful Insect. LOOKS LIKE A LITTLE QUEEN ELECTRIC LIGHT GLOBE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 20 February 1914
A Wonderful Insect. LOOKS .LIKE A LITTLE QUEEN ELECTRIC LIGHT GLOBE. - . There exists in. the tropical coun tries of Amcrica ntul in the West Indies a curious species of insect which the natives call "Cocuyos," meaning night light insect. This insect emits a brilliant green light from each cyo and a green light from the under part of the stomach. Some of the natives in Cuba, Mexi co itn&lt;i % South America use the insect light ,to read by, placing about fifty of them in a long glass tube* or bottle, called a "Cocu yern." Another method is to hniig the "Cocuyera" over one's bed and then when you want to seo the time at night, strike the bottle .gently with the hand, when the "Cocuyos"' will light up. This insect is tjuite harmless and inofTcnsivo and'can be carried in the liand. If its stomach is gently pressed . by forefinger and thumb it will give a light like a small elcc-. trie torch.
