WOMEN'S INTERESTS By "Ambrosine.") A*civet neck-bands and. satinflounces are two of the crazes of the moment. A narrow black velvet ribbon with a pendant, or a large baroque pearl is much worn with white blouses for morning wuar. fciome people ha.ve even adopted the fashion of wearing the flat wrist watch mounted on a black vel vet ribbon-braeciet, and this eighteenth century fashion makos a quaint con trast with a tailor-mado dress. Thero is a new garment coming into vogue, which is partly scarf anu partly pele rine. A pretty one was in wide mate rial, the border of which consisted of a blankot stitch in thick Berlin wool, worked lirst in black, and then over that in white. The ett'eet at a distance was not unlike ermine. .Not for many a year has lace played so interesting a part in the modes as it has this season. The eil'ort to widen the silhouette at least a little, haa had something to do with the matter; for ilounces have been brought from the imbo of discarded things, and wha...

PREPARATION OF THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 10 January 1914

PREPARATION OF THE SOIL. A thorough preparation of the soil is one of tho chief factors in suocessfui management of tho soil. Soils that aro badly run down by continuous crop ping may bo restored to their original stato of productiveness by the use of fertilisers, but the cause of small re turns is not always due to a lack of fertility. Many oonditions may pre vail which prevent the plant attaining a healthy development. Better con ditions, obtained by drainage, liming, etc., may bo necessary before the plan can avail itself of further addi tions ol plant food. The more per fect the condition of tho soil is made tho better will plants be able to attain the highest development; there will, then, be greater conversion of food into crops. Our soils are the medium in which we can at pleasure convert pot ash phosphoric acid-nitrogen into crops; therefore, is it not advisable to keep tho medium in the highest Btate of ef ficiency? "Feed your crops, as you do your animals, not merely to ap...

! | EFFECT OF SUGAR ON CEMENT. That sugar in quantities as small as one-quavtor of one per cent, of thy weight of the. ccinent will completely prevent the cement from setting, suul that one or two per cent, of sugar will make the cement set quickly, but will later cause it to disintegrate or break up. has been established by a i series ol' tests conducted by a chcmical i engineer, who also claims that the ae | tion is more pronounced with some ce ments than with others.
