INTENSIVE CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 December 1916
INTENSIVE CULTIVATION. The problem or successful farming nowadays, and particularly the prob lem of small holdings, must depend for its solution on intensive culture, which means that the crops grown one after the other in quick succes sion must be sown in soil worked into condition as perfect as possible, and must be regularly nourished with am ple supplies of available plant food. If horses are put to extra hard work they are supplied with extra rations, includ ing energy-producing grain; similarly the soil, if expected to produce a.quick succession of exhausting crops, must be supplied with the nourishing ma terial to enable it to bear with success the strain. Farmyard manure applied in moderate quantities will maintain the soil in- a good physical condition, and will keep it supplied with humus. Then fertilisers in suitable forms must be used liberally; the fertilising elements in phosphate of lime are not likely to be washed away, and, there fore, any balance not utilised by on...

IN THE KRUPP WORKS The anecdote is related oE Herr Krupp that as he was once showing the' German Emperor through his works, the latter displayed great In terest in the steam hammer, and was told that the workman In charge of it, named Ackermann, was so skilful that a hand might be placed on the anvil without fear, and he would stop the hammer within a hair's breadth of it. "Let us try it," said the Emperor; but not with a human hand-try my watch." And lie laid It, a splendid specimen of work, richly set with brilliants, on the anvil. Down came the immense mass of steel, and Ackermann,' with his hand on the lever, stopped it just the sixth of an inch from the watch. When he went to hand it back, the Emperor replied, "No, Ackermann, keep the watch in memory of an in teresting moment." The workman, embarrassed, stood with outstretched hand, not knowing what to do.

THE GREENGROCER'S WOOING. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 15 December 1916
THE GREENGROCER'S WOOING. Dear Barbara,-I love you much; oh say you will be mine. A very happy pair we'll make; my heart for you doth pine. Oh, lettuce make a match, my dear; most melancholy I. If you turn up your nose at me, you'll rue Barb, if 1 die. Some say my lialr is carrot red; 'tis really russet brown. But what's outside my nut, my dear, need never earn your frown. For sorrow I'll care not a fig, if you'll be true to me. So fix the date, my little peach, adn let us happy be. The cur rents of our married life shall always smoothly flow. If you will wear the orange-flowers, and to the altar go. You are so rosy, fat, and plump--the apple of my eye; I'm longing to caress you. dear, be sure you soon reply; Don't scorn my offer at this thyme, and say it is a funny 'un; But grant the prayer of one whose heart still leaks with love. -Bill Onion.

A False Alarm. A story at the expense of Sir George Reid, M.P., is told by his poli tical opponents; but, as it is not ill natured, it is worth repeating. Sir George is a very big man, weighing considerably over two hun dred pounds. One day, in his capa city of High Commissioner for Aus tralia, he was visiting one of the Commonwealth cruisers ia Sydney harbor, and after dinner her com-, mander (an unusually small man) suggested that Sir George should sleep oft board, and thoughtfully sur rendered his own cabin for the night to his distinguished guest. Next morning, at the early hour when the captain usually rose, the latter's sailor servant, who knew nothing of the arrangement, brought a cup of coifee to the cabin door and knocked once or twice without re ceiving'an answer. Somewhat alarm ed. the servant popped in his head, and asked: "Don't you want your coitee this morning, sir?" The only reply was in the nature of a growl, and the terrified sailor be held a gigantic figure turnin...
