PART MOURNING. Aii Irishman walked into a men's furnishing goods store tlio other day and said: "0i want to gut soinetliin' fer mourniii' wear, but Oi don't exactly know what tlio coostom is. What do they ho wearin' now for mournin?" "It depends," exclaimed the sales man, 'on how near tlio relativo is for whom you wish to show this mark of respect. For a very near relative you should liavo an all black suit. For some ono not so near you may liavo a broad band of black on tlio left arm or a somewhat narrower ono for some body moro distant." "Och ! Is that it? Well, thin, gimnio a shoestring. It's we ivoifo's mither." Littlo Dot (aged five) : " Mamma, Dick and I got married this morning." Mamma: "You did, did you?

THE HAND SEPARATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 23 January 1914
THE HAND SEPARATOR. The valuo of a hand separator de pends very largoly upon the person who runs it and cares for tho cream. Thorc is no question but what the separator has its advantages, but in tho hands ? F a careless person it very soon becomes a detriment. Most of the stvida >1 machines aro made to run easily, r.ud almost as smoothly as a sewing ma chine, but how many aftor being used a while turn like a feed chopper, and, for noise, u thrashing machine is not in it. Tho &lt;roi>l)io is generally ab1.,; to uiolenii conditions of tho fear ing and lack of oil. Not that oil is not used, but t'iio oil holes and chan nels become clogged up and tho oil cannot reach tho gearing. Ono of tlio first things a farmer should do after buying a separator is to get per fectly familiar with every part of tho gearing. This is as important to un derstand as the bowl. Milk very often gets into tho gearing, and thiB always causes trouble till reriioved. Watch this, and keop tho gearin...
THE FOOTSTEPS OF A DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 23 January 1914
THE FOOTSTEPS OF A DOG. J?or tlie information of tlioso wlio ar*; in tlio habit of sending a dog for their cows, I wish to roport a littlo experi ence which I have had along this lino. I tested tlio milk from a cow after she was brought up by a stable dog, the dog in turn being in charge of a small boy. Sho was considerably excited ana quito warm. Her milk tested 2.3. Tlio nest morning her test was .1.1, and a week later, when sho was brought in by a man and perfectly cool, her milk tested 6.2. Now you 'an liguro out whether or not it pays to use a dog around tho dairy herd. 1 should state that tho pasture and feed wero exactly tho sanio in oaeli m staiico."

ENSILAGE-THE FAVORITE FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 23 January 1914
ENSILAGE-THE FAVORITE FODDER (By "Agriculturalist" in "Now Zealand Dairyman.") That the feeding of' odw's is ono of tho most important, matters connected with dairying, no one can gainsay, imt of the many, foods in general use, i will at present touch on only ono-ensil age. No argument, to my mind, could bo adduced against the use o: ensilage, and any contention to justify the setting aside of fodder of such para mount importance would not hold ground in the face of practical experi enco on the dairy farm. Ensilage contains no substance that would in any way tend to interfere with the orgau isms of the cow, while it oontains -o little acid that its color is not objec tionable. It can be made when hay cannot, and even this is an important point, especially in Southland and Tar anaki wliero tho weather is so variable. It may not supersede hay-making, bio that is probably because of tho varie'.v of uses which tho colonial farmer puts hay to. Regarding the preparation or ensilage, I wis...
