TENNIS. - —————————————————————— OPENING OF THE GEEVE STON COURT. A SUCCESSFUL FUNCTION, The official opening of the Geeveston Tennis Court was held on Wednesday last, and was an unqualified success. Nearly 100 persons were present, coming from all parts of the district, and the ? Frankiin and Shipwrights' Point clubs were strongly repre sented. The tennis court is charmingly situated, and is almost in the centre of the township on a piece of ground that Mr J. W. Geeves has kindly leased to the club at a nominal rent. The opening ceremony was performed by Dr. Stephens, who referred to the difficulty experi enced in getting the club started, but said that they were well repaid for the trouble inseeingtho enthusiasm with which the mem bers were taking to the game. After tho opening service wag made and the court declared open, a set was made up, con sisting of Dr. Anderson and Miss Inches versus the Rov. R.

AN INGENIOUS DEVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

AN INGENIOUS DEVICE. A smooth-looking stranger recently placed a number of penny-in-the-olot maches in a ceriain town. Tho machines bore this inscription :—*, The greatest known aid to digestion. Drop a penny in the slot. Push, then pull.' At the top of the machine was a handlo to be pushed, then pulled, arid many towns people who qould not re3ist the tempta tion of trying some new device, for the same reason that Timothy took the wine — 'for his stomach's sake' — dropped in their pennies and took a pu3h and pull out of the machine. But that was all. No result followed, and there wa3 some talk of blowing open the hoarded trea sure. A.t the end of the week the arent re-appeared, unlocked tne macnir.e3, garnered tho wealth, and retired, after explaining that ' exercise was the greatest ? thins for digestion in the world.' The crowd was so paralyse? that the agent escaped unharmed.

PRINCESS AND SCULPTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

PRINCESS AND SCULPTOR. A pretty story is told of the Duchess of Aosta, who is a Princess of the House of Orleans and sister to Queen Amelie of Portugal. There lives in Naples a great Italian sculptor, Vin cenzo Gemitd, once a disciple and friend of Meissonier, whose later life has been clouded by sadness. Some twenty years ago, owing: to overwork'' and distressing mental suffering, his; reason became unhinged. It was a/ quiet madness, which, impelled thf^ poor sufferer to expend all his energy ? in. the labor of his craft. ? Gemito passed .these twenty years working hard at the production of statuettes. These were real masteiv pieces, which the sculptor modelled and remodelled time after time, bring-:* ing them to the highest degree of per-* fection. But he refused to leave his. studio, as he feared the attacks of fan tastic foes, who were the figments of his disordered brain. He took all his meals, and even slept, in the studio, amidst the products of his dexterous hands. The Duche...

Crops and Plant Food. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

Crops and Plant Food. 'All that is necessary for the growth of crops are food and a clean, healthy soil. The food, of course, must be such as the plant requires for the supply of materials of which to build up its substance, and the soil must be in such a condition as to carrv the food into the roots, and sud ply the needed moisture and air, with the entire absence of - all injurious elements that may interfere with healthful growth. It matters not in what form the food is supplied so that it is soluble an,d available. The soil must be cultivated well, and there must be such a rotation of crops as will prevent, the accumulation in the soil of parasitic enemies by too often repeated- growth of one crop, and the consequent injury to it. All this is the same as ever. There is nothing now. ' it is the application of princi ples as old as the- appearance of the first plant which grew on newly-made soil. The only thing that seems to be new about it is the form in which the plant, food is ...

The Practical Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

The Practical Farmer. 'Every successful man in any trade or calling has been a mixture of ad vanced ideas and close, practical me thods. They occupy two separate de partments of mind; but, of the two, the power to originate ideas, to see principles, to invent better methods of execution is by far the greater. Plenty of men have the force to exe cute if someone else will plan. But to plan wjsely is a work largely of the imagination. Thus we see that the quality of a farmer's mind, his power ??to comprehend what he is doing, what it means to the farm and his future fortune, is the final measure of his success: A farmer may be practical in a half-bushel or in a ten-acre field, but the latter takes the bigger man.' — 'Hoard's Dairyman.'

THE SPINSTER MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

THE SPINSTER MAN. Much has been written on the sub ject of the Bachelor Maid. She has been one of the finest of the new works of creation.

And he is com ing to be just as common a species as the Bachelor Maid.

He Didn't Mind. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 February 1910

He Didn't Mind. The minister of a large parish had for some time been much troubled by the scandalous gossip that seemed to be occupying the minds of a portion of his flock, and, after exercising a great amount of tact and perseverance, at last succeeded in running to earth the ' originator of most of the settle ment's society slander The guilty one was a regular attend ant at the school-house services, and the minister knew that should he take him to task personally and individu ally he would inevitably lose a sheep — albeit a black one; so he decided to sermonise him. Accordingly, a special discourse was prepared, and the following Sunday afternoon literally hurled at the offend ing member as he sat on a desk in the corner of the schoolroom. Everybody present appeared to fully appreciate the situation, and, at the close of the service, departed quietly and thoughtfully for home. All except the. black sheep, who re marked to the minister: 'That wer' a fine sermon, sir; I'll bet tha...

Considered from the standpoint of storage capacity alone, it is a pro ntaDie investment, tor m what way could one provide cheaper shelter for ten acres of maize than by putting it into a silo. Then, too, it is stored when it contains all the sweetness of its growth, and this it retains if pro perly secured.
