LEARN TO BE SILENT. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 7 January 1914
LEARN TO BE SiLENT. The art of living fiucccssfullly with others, like most other arts, depends chiefly on the art of omission. Bv restricting our words and actions, or let us say words, for actions arc of comparatively little importance, the chief offences would be avoided. The first thing! needful is to learn to be quiet. Tt is the foundation for self-command of all kinds. The first step to speaking well is to know how to keep silent. In this way it comes at Inst to the Ego itself, and not tho body or the temperament whioli con ducts our share of tho conversation. To sa.v tho riglit thing at the right moment, to the right person, is per fection, yet on the lower and more ac tesy of whioli popularity is the acknow ledgment.

FACTS ABOUT THE SILO. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 14 January 1914
FACTS ABOUT THE SILO. Twenty years' experience in the use of the silo has brought about some i'aots about which one and ail are ag reed :— 1.—That a largo amount of. health ful cattle food can be preserved in the silo in better condition, with less ex pense of labor and land, than by any other method known. 2. That silage comes nearer being a perfect substitute for the suoculent food of the pasture than any other iood that can be had iu. the winter. 3. Thirty pounds a day is enough silage for an average sized Jersey cow. Larger cattle will eat more. 4. A cubio foot of silage froin the middle of a medium sized silo will av erage about 451b weight. 5. For 1S2 days, or half a year, an average Jersey* cow will require about six tons of silage, allowing tor unavoid able waste. (J. The circular silo, mado of good hardwood staves, is cheapest and best. 7. Fifteen feet is a. good diameter, aud 20 feet a good depth. Suoh a silo will hold about 200 tons of silage, cut into half inch lengths. ...
