Providing Against Want. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
I > & Providing* Affalnat A form oi practical insurance egaiuc^ ^rant is under advisement in th!s oity, la which a large portion of the laboring [people should be deeply interested, Sayg the Boston Herald. A working man iB often thrown out of employ ment and reduced to great distress be cause he has little or no money laid by, and is unable to provide for his, board and lodging while out of em ployment, It has been suggested that u people's mercantile company might be formed among themselves which would undertake to provide board and lodging with landlords at the rate ol $4, $5 or $8 a week, on such terms that, after one month of regular payments i one weeks board at half pay might be placed to the credit of the interested party, so that if he were out of work or sick or otherwise disabled, he might not be brought to discomfort because he could not pay his board.

OLD PAPERS. Tweny-five Ways of making Them Useful and Ornamental. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
^ OLD PAPERS. N Xiveny-llvo "Ways or making Them Csofa} and Ornamental. Along with a lust year's bird's nest do men rate a baok number newspaper, yet civilization finds mi re (and more reput able) uses for the latter than a Chinese pook for the former. Almost every one has hea*d that a newspaper spread be tween the bed blankets affords more protection from coid than an additional blanket, and without adding the ua j$omfortablo weight of the latter. Bat 1 have seen a bit of domestic eoonomy practiced by a tramp so clever fis to make this one pale, says a writer in Good Housekeeping. He wrapped his £eet in newspapers, of which he had plenty, in lieu of stockings, of which he tad none. "Will that keep your feet •warm?" I asked. "Better than all-wool feose," he answered—and truthfully.

Making Tobacco Harmless. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
Making Tobacco Harml^in, Very few smokers realize the extent of the harm done to the mouth, heart and nerves by tobacco ays a well known physician iti the i'hiladeli'liia Inquirer who has just returned from the Berlin Medical Congress. "When I was in Europe I learned of a simple and effectivo method of rendering to bacco entirely harmless without destroy ing its aroma. The method waB discov ':^3red by Dr. Gantrelet, of Yichy, and it _aliould be regarded as a priceless boon to smokers; It consists of a small fieoe of cotton wool steeped in a 5 or 0 pel cent, solution of pyrogallic acid, inserted in pipe or cigar-holder. This will neutralize any possible ill effects of the nicotine, In this way not only may the generally admitted evils of smoking be overcome, but oirrosis of the liver, which is sometimes caused by tobacco, and lighter effeots of over-indulgence, such as headache and furring of the tongue, may be avoided.

SILVER BERT AS A FORAGE PLANT. • The results obtained from one acre of silver beet a.t Belfast, near Christ church on the experimental plots un der the control of Mr'.

INTERESTING APPLE EXPERIMENT. THE USE OF LIGATURES. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
INTERESTING APPT.K EXPERI MENT. THK USB OF LIGATURES. A most interesting: experiment, if ■ reported ' from Tasmania in regard to I apple-growing. Some trees of the Al friston variety appca\-ed to be bent | on producing wood instead- of fruit. Ligatures were applied to the trunk* of live trees on January 14. The ef fect was remarkable. The Apples on the trees began to change colour at once, until b\ the end of February they were nearly all yellow, and in splendid condition for export. The ligatures consisted of stout wires, tightly bound round. As soon' as the fruit was gathered this was removed, and then the trees made nearly a foot of wood before the leaven fell in the autumn. Another change no ticeable was that the fralting bran ches made better development. Bunions.—Paint them every second * day with iodine till the soreness dis- \ appears. 1922. f

MAN-EATERS. THE TERRIBLE AND CUNNING TIGERS OF INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
^ MAN-EATERS. THF. TERRIBLE A.VD CUNNING TIGERS OP INDIA. Sir Samuel W. Baker, in his recent book, "Wild Beasts and their Ways," eays that if the tiger has been bora in jungles abounding in wild pigs he is apt to have a-well-fed and comfortable ap pearance, very different from the tiger of the Zoological Gardens, which "is a long, lithe creature, with little flesh, and from the lack of exercise the muscles are badly developed. Such a specimen affords a poor example of the grand ani mal in its native jungles, whose muscles are almost ponderous in their develop ment from the continued exertion in nightly rambles over long distances and in mortal struggles when wrestling with its prey. A well-fed tiger is by no meaus a slim "figure, but, on the contrary, it is exceedingly bulky, broad in the shoul ders, back and loins, with an extraord - nary girth of limbs, especially in the forearm and wrist. The muscles arc tough and hard, and there are two pecu liar bones unattachcd to the skeleton...
CHAPTER XV. DICK'S TEMPTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
CHAPTER XV. DICK'S TEMPTATION. Dick had heard all the foregoing conversation, and he realised what it meant. He knew that the pirate con templated another outrage, and one infinitely worse than the shooting of Luke Radford. "Must I stand by and see it ?" he said to himself. "They will take this woman by force to the cruiser, and she is probably well-bred and a lady. The captain is right ; sho had much better be dead than fall into such hands ! I can't play a passive part much' longer. If I had a pistol I should be strongly tempted to shoot that scoundrel, Jason Gore. And it might be just as well for me, for I am a doomed man, anyway. I can't see a ray of hope in the future." i At that moment there was a stir of curiosity, and Dick's comrades closed compactly in front of him, blocking; his view across the deck. He shifted his position and looked. The captain was at the head of the companion way, supporting on one arm a young and most beautiful girl. Her slim figure showed to advantag...

PART G. CHAPTER XIV". THE FATE OF THE TRAITOR. I^he silence lasted for probably a minute, anil then Jason Gore took a step nearer the trembling wretch. "Lnke Radford, von have learned how far my arm can reach !" he said, in low, sharp tones that were intended only for-his own men and the prisoner. "Fool, traitor, why did you not realise your madness before it was too late ?'Did you Indeed hope to escape my vengeancc—to evade the punishment, you so richly deserve ?" "Mercy !" came in a husky whisper from the man's lips. "Shall T tell you what I k-now ?" Gore continued. "Listen ! You, one of my trusted agents in London, bound by oath to lie (rue to our community, were tempted and fell. I am ignorant of the reason, but it is certain that you decided to sell the jjreat secret to the Admiralty—to the British Government. However, I had mistrusted you for a long: time, and you were constantly watched by other agents of mine. You learned or suspected this before you could carry out your tre...

THE FARM. _~_j CLOVER SICKNESS. 1 lie old idea that clover sickness is due lu the exhaustion of some soil constituent essential for the growth of clover is now disproved (writes a contributor to tlu> "British Journal of Agriculture"), ami it has been de finitely shown (.hat the disease is of parasitic origin.

VALUE OF RYE CORN. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 3 April 1914
VALUE OF RYE (JORN. The value of rye is most apparenl after root crops have boon a partial failure, mid-in such seasons a large area of it is sown. It relieves the strain of providing keep, and forms a connecting link be twecn winter and spring feed. It is very wholesome and not relaxing to the bowels like rape greens. It en courages milk in-eyres and makes a pleasant changc for lambs, espcciallj if they are allowed to run forward through creeps. It is also an excel lent preparation for roots, awl is grown as a catch crop lw?twcen them and the previous corn crop. After it shoots into ear it ceases to be of value as sheep keep, but m iy be cut and carried to horses. It may even be left for seeding as a corn crop. live straw comes in very useful for thatching, and many farmers make a practice of sowing a small area every yenr in rye for the sake of the straw.

THE DAIRY. HEAVY ROOT FEEDING. EFFECT ON THE MILK YIELD. An experiment was recently tried ; by Messrs. Lauder find Fa.pan at ; Edinburgh on the elects of feeding au extra quantity of roots to milk cows with regard to the results on : the milk yield. The quantity and quality of the. milk were noted, and incidently a test was made how f:r turnips would replace the expensive food commonly used for fwling. The turnip ration was as follows per head daily :—'Bean meal, 211) ; bran, 21b. ; turnips, 112Tb. ; hay, 151b. ; having an albuminoid ratio of 1 to 11.
