The Poisonous' Melon. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 25 April 1913

The Poisonous' Melon. It would be as well for farmers to note that it is unwise to allow horses in paddocks where the wild niolon is prolific. On Satur day and Sunday last Mr WilBon, of Galore had -tbo misfortune to lose two valuable colts, and a third is in a bad way. Sympt'ons of poisoning art* to be noticed in connection with the urine, which bo comes milky. The horses suffor severely from impaotion owing to the toughness of the fibre, but apart from the impaction there seemB to be a poison in the plant. The eyes also become' almost blind, supposed to bo caused by the horses treading on the melons and causing them to squirt juice, which if it enters the eye causes blindness. This week two horses, the property of a Ganmain farmer, died through eating " paddymelon." Several other farmers had to give relief to their horses, and only just saved them. The weed is on the increase, and it is said the only way to eradicate it is a pleSfciful use of the cultivator, as it grows on fallow g...

WEANING PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 25 April 1913

WEANING PIGS. There should not be undue haste in weaning young pigs from the sow. They should be at least eight weeks old, and i£ possible they may profit ably be left till they are ten or twelve weeks o£ age. Ot course, i£ the sow-" is to have a second-litter as soon as she can it Is not possible to leave the little pigs with her for so long; Some times they are weaned as early as Ave weeks old, but that is too soon, as they have not learned to eat solid food by that time. The best possible way of getting..., the youngsters big, fat and. strong is to leave them with the mother as long as possible, provided she is not going to be bred from again immediately. She must be well fed, but the milk producing ration must be reduced shortly before weaning time. If the little pigs are eating well before weaning they will scarcely miss their mother. ' At weaning-tlme the largest pigs should be taken away first, leaving two or three of the weaker ones to dry the sow off gradually, -thus saving...

IDLE THOUGHTS. Written by the Old Man in the Corner. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 25 April 1913

IDLE THOUGHTS. Written by the Old Man in the Corner. Tlie other day a friend sprang a startling question on a party, "Shall we live again?" lie asked. "Live in this material form, I mean? It has been suggested by controversialists that progress moves in a circle—that in so many thousand years we shajl be back at the starting-point, as it were." 1-Ie took from the idea this question: "If you are to live again, what would you like to be?" The average man (and woman) has missed his vocation in life. Put that question to yourself, and your neighbor. . That was a pretty little story they used to tell of the late Mr, Whitelaw Reid. Someone asked him, "If you had your time to live over again, what would you like most to be?" He pon dered it only a second. "Mrs. Reid's second husband," 1-e said. Can anyone tell me what a woman expects to hear when she goes to a palmist and parts with good money for bad guesses? The palmist knows that she must not tell the poor thing anything that is not ple...

CHAPTER II. Driven from the Parish. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 25 April 1913

CHAPTER II. Next morning Jack Seaton, despite his disfigured face and sore bonea, went to his work as usual. He held a situation in the woollen factory, own ed by a Mr. Bouncer, and which stood near the village,, and was trusted .by his employer and popular with his feilow-workers. Lily had pleaded with him to stay within doors for the day, but he put her reasoning brusquely aside, for to tell the truth in the clear, cool lig-ht of morning, he felt a little ashamed of his conduct. In answer to one of. her remarks, he said: The story is all over the parish by this time, and it cannot alter matters whether I go out or stay in." This was probably true, but while speaking thus Seaton dreaded lest the Colonel's anger, for angry he un doubtedly would be, should fall on his uncle and Lily. For himself he nei ther feared nor cared very much what happened. Just as he was finishing his break fast the sergeant, his uncle, entered the room. He was a grizzled veteran, far advanced towards man's ...

THE FLOWER-POT TEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 25 April 1913

THE FLOWER-POT, TEST. Practical men smile at the idea of experiments carried out in small pots furnishing results which can be de pended upon for commercial purposes; but the Bureau of Soils of the De partment of Agriculture of U.S.A., in a recent pamphlet, recommends far mers to test their paddocks methodic ally in this way; and, apparently, in various parts of that country men have followed the lines laid down by the department, and with good re sults. Chemical 'analysis has never afforded the information which at one time was hoped for from this testing; of soils; but the flower-pot metlioi, while being subject to the same limi tations as regards the samples repre senting the soil of the whole paddock, is superior, in that the seed is sown and grown under physical conditions nearly approaching those to which the crop will be subjected. As a pre paratory test before growing such a crop as lucerne, which is costly to establish 'under unfavorable circum stances, this method seems to...

LEGAL ASSISTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 25 April 1913

LEGAL ASSISTANCE. A country visitor at a New York hotel, having a dread of pickpockets, went to the clerk and handed him a hundred-dollar bill to be put in the safe. Asking for it next day, he was thun derstruck when the functionary to whom he had given the money coolly denied any recollection of the mat ter. Thereupon the countryman went to a lawyer. "Get another hundred-dollar bill,"' said' the lawyer, "and go, accompan ied by a friend, back to the hotel, apologise to , the clerk for your mis take; say it was a defect of memory; attribute it to drink or absentminded ness; deposit the second hundred-dol lars in the presence of your friend, and come back to me." Tlie mystified ruralist obeyed his in structions to the very letter. "Now," said the lawyer, "go back alone to the clerk and ask him for the hundred dollars. Knowing that your friend saw him receive it, he will give back tlie second hundred-dollar bill. Then take your friend with you the the next day, approach the clerk, ask...
