DYNAMITE FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 April 1915

DYNAMITE FOR FARMERS. Until recently a stick of dynamite was about the last thing a fruit grower would have thought of taking along when he went to plant some young trees. Now, however, science is urging that the explosive be used in the planting as an effective means of hurrying the tree's growth, and making it yield more fruit. Experi ence in South Africa and Australia, as well as in many American orch ards, shows that the explosion of a dynamite charge in the earth makes just the sort of a hole in which a tree will thrive best. When an explosive is employed in stead of a spade, the soil is shaken up and fissured for a comparatively wide area beyond the hole actually required for the tree. Experience has shown that trees planted in ground prepared by ex plosives make a much more vigorous and rapid growth than when planted in the ordinary~ way. Some trees have begun bearing after four years, while others similarly situated, but spade-planted, did not yield fruit un til six years. I...

FOR THE FARMER. THE OBJECT OF APPLYING FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 April 1915

FOR THE FARMER. THE OBJECT OF APPLYING FERTILISERS. Wlien a farmer applies a fertiliser to the soil, what does he do it for? He is simply supplying so many pounds of food to his plants, just as he gives rations of fodder to his live stock. The crop, as it grows, consumes or assimilates, besides other substances, a certain quantity of nitrogen, phos phate of lime, and potash, and when we put on the soil dressings of ni trate of soda, superphosphate, kainit, or other fertilisers, ^e are providing the crop with a stock of food for the period of its growth. Thus a dressing of l^cwt. nitrate of soda to the acre furnishes 201b. of nitrogen, equivalent to about 241b. of ammonia; 3cwt. of superphosphate furnishes 871b. of soluble phosphate of lime; 2cwt. of kainit furnishes 29 lb. of pota h. The following table gives the weight in pounds supplied by lcwt. of the principal commercial fertilisers, and will be found useful for refer ence:— One cwt. sulphate of ammonia con tains 27.441b. of amm...

AMAZING AVERSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 April 1915

AMAZING AVERSIONS. A case is related of a monk who would faint on seeing a rose and who never quitted his cell at the monas tery while that flower was blooming. Another authority tells us of how Vincent, the great painter, would swoon upon going suddenly into a room where roses were, even though he did not see them. Valtaid tells of an army officer who was fre quently thrown into violent convul sions by coming in contact with the little flower known as the pink. This same authority also tells of the case of a lady, forty-six years of age, hale and hearty, who, if present when lin seed was being boiled for any purpose, would be seized with violent fits of coughing, swelling of the face, and partial loss of reason for the ensuing twenty-four hours. Writing of these peculiar antipa thies and aversions, Montague re marks that he has known men of un doubted courage who would much rather face a shower of cannon-balls than look at an apple. In Zimmer man's writings there is an account of a...

WHY HENS REQUIRE A NITROGENOUS RATION. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 April 1915

WHY HENS REQUIRE A NITRO GENOUS RATION. One of the worst mistakes made by many poultry breeders is in trying to cut down feeding. Only last week a gentleman visited my office and band ed me three samples of "cheap" food. On examination I found that practic ally all the nutriment had been re moved. I questioned him regarding the results obtained, since feeding the so-called egg food, which was nothing more than refuse from some mill, and he replied, "That's my reason for call ing upon you." Since the birds have been fed on the rubbish the ogg yield fell off 62 per cent, within a week. When we consider that the hen pro duces such valuable elements in a fresh egg, how, I ask, is it possible for her to keep faith with her owner? For unless we give her the raw ma terial, how can she convert fibre into proteids, etc.? There are tons of eggs produced which, when analysed, are found to contain an excess of water, and a much diminished quantity of protein and fat, the result is the consuming...

THE POULTRY YARD. NOVICES' MISTAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 April 1915

THE POULTRY YARD. NOVICES' MISTAKES. By H. V. Hawkins in the "Victorian Poultry Journal." People who buy eggs of varieties of fowls with which they are not familiar, or which they have seen only in adult form, are very often surprised at the chick's appearance, and not infre quently jump at the conclusion that they have been swindled. A chick that is all black when hatched is a rarity. The chicks of black varieties are nearly always can ary-colored on the underparts. It is in these black' and white chicks that the novice very often finds results not in accord with his expectations; but irregularities sometimes occur in all varieties, even in carefully bred stock. As a rule the color comes right in the adult feathers. I have known a novice to purchase a setting of Black Orpingtons, have good hatching results, but, as the chicks were black and canary white, he destroyed the lot, and returned them to the breeder with a note stating that he had bought Black Orpingtons, not mongrels. Ano...

REMINDERS FOR THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 April 1915

REMINDERS FOR THE MONTH. Deal direct with the consumer if possible, it pays best. Add Douglas'' mixture to drinking water twice a week. Market all hens past their second season and give more attention to j pullets and first year birds. I Provide abundance of shell grit to forward pullets; it's easier to pre vent soft eggs than to stop the trou ble. Isolate all birds showing a watery discharge from the nostrils or eyes. Bathe eyes and wash mouths with bor acic acid of about 4 per cent, strength. Always grade your eggs—size counts and so does color. Many prefer brown shelled eggs to white, but the quality of the egg depends upon qual ity of food consumed in its produc tion. Poultry farmers will be well advis ed to overhaul houses, especially when made of material that during the sum mer shrinks and leaves cracks. All repairs to pens and shelter sheds should be done now, ere the autumn rains set in. Keep ground clean; turn up land required for sowing grasses, such as clovers, English g...

JIM BOWEN'S ROMANCE [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 April 1915

JIM BOWEN'S ROMANCE j "You needn't go away, Jim; it's only the new parlor-maid." James Bowen smiled, nodded, and, sinking back in the seat he had been about to vacate, resumed his reading A moment later a girl was ushered into the room, but he did not look up. He was too engrossed in Kipling to take any interest in the stranger. "You wish for a situation as a par lor-maid?" There was a note of surprise in his mother's voice that cut sharply across the passage he was reading, causing him to frown involuntarily and start the paragraph again. "Yes, please, if you will take me a month on trial." Again the paragraph was disturbed, but this time by a voice that fell low and musically on the young man's ears. Glancing up in surprise, he looked curiously towards the girl who was standing near his mother's chair. Great Scot!—this a parlor-maid! A second later his eyes were once more on the book, but the letters were dancing^before his bewildered vision, still dazzled by the swift impression ...

THE UNCROWNED KAISER. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 April 1915

THE UNCROWNED KAISER. It is interesting to recall that the Kaiser has never been crowned. When the time approached for that great ceremony he made tremendous preparations. Everything was to be dazzlingly beautiful—masses of uni forms and gorgeous carpets. Unfor tunately, however, this cultured ruler overstepped the mark. He de cided that he should not be termed the German Emperor, but Emperor of Germany. It therefore behoved him to be crowned in the latter capa city. The rulers of the German States refused to let the gentleman with the moustache assume so haughty a title. "Very well," said William, "I won't have any corona tion at all, then!" Dr. Blomfield was a widower with' children. He married a widow with children, and he had a family by his second wife. One day this lady rushed into the library and said, in an excited tone: "Do come to the nursery; your chil dren and my children are endeavor ing to kill our children."

SUNDAY SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY. The anniversary of the Presbyterian Sun day School was held on Sunday, when good congregations assembled at the two services conducted by Rev. W. Murray, of Oarngham. About 50 scholars were seated on platforms on either side of the pulpit, and under Miss Perrin took a prominent and pleasing part in the service of praise. Appropriate ser mons were preached, that at night dc ling specially with the duties of parents and tea chers. otiose who did not attend the con cert on Monday night missed a rare treat. The scholars gave three or four excellent items, and the Lintou Methodist quartette party, comprising Misses Myrtle Cornish and Violet Ball, and Messrs Syd. Ball and liobt. Mitchell—with Mrs Eobt.

Rifle Shooting. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 April 1915

Mr G. L. Dean's trophy was shot for last week by the Linton Rifle Club, the competition proving most interesting, the result being in doubt until almost the last shot was fired. The ranges were 200, BOO, 500, and 600 yards, 8 shots and 2 sighters. At the first two ranges Watson and Hogan shot well, scoring 75 and 74 respectively. Ward coming next with 71, then Kirk witli 68, Stratton 66, Nicol, Hitchins, and Thompson 65 each. Ward did not compete in the next stage, 500 and 600 yards, and other competitors having lost any chance of winning, the competi tion was between the other members named, and it looked an almost sure thing for Hogan. Veteran Watson again shot well, and secured first place with (including handicap of 8) 151. He having won a previous trophy, took second prize, the condition of the com petition being that no competitor could win1 the trophy twice. It then seemed that Hogan or Kirk must win, but they both broke up the former securing third place and thelatter eighth...

A MAN WHO CANNOT FORGET. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 April 1915

A MAN WHO CANNOT FORGET. I A man has been unearthed in Tor onto whose memory is of the most re markable sort. This man, whose name is McNair, is able, off-hand, to tell you the sort of weather there was on any particular day for the past twenty years or so.. The process, so far as has been ascertained by the scientists who have examined the man, is that he makes a mental pic ture of the weather, fair or stormy, cold or warm, as it may happen, and tacking to it the day of the week and the month, stores it .away in his brain. On being applied to, we will say, as to the weather on August 30, 1899, McNair immediately unfolds his lit tle package of information which he has stored away somewhere in his head, and answers correctly, accord ing to the data compiled- at the Ob servatory, adding to it the informa tion that the 30th fell on Friday, or whatever day it happened to be. That these tests are genuine and the answers con-ect almost without exception is vouched for by Univer sity profe...

WHAT IS "KULTUR"? Definitions from a London Newspaper. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 April 1915

WHAT IS "KULTUR"? Definitions from a London Newspaper. Germany has boasted and toasted its "kultur," as well as "The Day." It has held itself up to the world as a shining example of advancement and enlightenment incomparable through out the universe. Its boastful attitude is summed up in the words of Profes sor Lasson, of Berlin, who. writing to a Dutch friend, says: — "We are morally and inte^ectually superior to all men. We are poer less; so, too,, are our organisations and our institutions." That is the German's vainglorious opinion of himself. That no one else shares that opinion does not trouble him,' for, in his spirit of superiority, he has given the word "kultur" quite a new definition. While we like to think of "kultur" as the systematic improvement and refinement of life and mind, develop ment of learning and taste, cultivation and promotion of all that is good in man, animal and plant, to quote the dictionary meanings, Germany re gards "kultur" as dishonor, devasta tion, ...

The Result. [Newspaper Article] — Grenville Standard — 3 April 1915

The Result, Who sits and waits for dead men's shoes, In which to make his climb, Will leave no footprints of his own Upon the sands of Time. If we long to he in touch with our children, if we want to hold them by the bond of confidence and love after the period of authority has passed, we must offer something for the tendrils to cling to now, while the sympathies and feelings are strong; while the child feels the oneness of his life with ours. He is good that does good to others. If he suffers for the good he does, he is better still, and if he suffers from them to whom he did good, he is ar rived to that height of goodness, that nothing but an increase of his suffer ings can a£d to it; if it proves his death, his virtue is at its summit; it is heroism complete.
