FILMS ABLAZE I'M It 10 DAMAGE £8000. A serious lire broitc out about 9.15 this morning at Messrs Pathe Freres, Limited, St. James-court. Wardour street (says "The Westminster Gazette" of December 31). • The lire resulted In the destruction of many thousands of feet of dims and other property.

UTOPIANS DIFFICULT TO FACE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 March 1914
UTOPIANS DIFFICULT TO FAC15. The building of Utopias has been a | fuvoritc recreation for imaginative ihen, writes the Editor of "The Irish Homestead." We do not believe that Pluto's Kepublie was by any means the ilrst attempt to imagine what the ideal human community would be like. We have not the slightest doubt that all the buried civilisations were so dis agreeable to the people who lived in them that before they perished through self-generated diseases, philosophers or philosopliieulcs were preaching ideals, wise or foolish, to all the discontented who would listen to them. AN IMPLICIT BELIEF. Our own age 1ms been proiillc in the manufacture of Utopias. William .Morris tried his lian.d at it. So did Mr Wells. So did Edward Bellamy and a score of others. There is somewhere implicit in the humun spirit a belief in the perfectibility of mankind. AH re formers appeal to that spirit. Politi cians exploit It? Every great nieusurc of recent years which we can remem- 1 her has been pre...

PURE SEEDS [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 14 March 1914
PURE SEEDS Then; was ail act to prohibit the adulteration of seeds passed in lS'Jfi. It | was a failure.'Repealed in 3910 by the .Seeds Act, 1010, there has been little if any improvement- Penalties are en acted for breaches of the law; they have been substantially a dead letter, and now agitation is going on for fur ther remedies. People do not seom to bother about penalties, although the law is broken probably a thousand times a day. Perhaps neither buyer nor seller know the law. Take, for in stance, the provisions that when seeds are sold in made-up packets the year in which the said seeds were grown will be clearly and indelibly marked on the outside of each packet (section 6). Take the next section, which provides that when you buy a shilling's worth of seeds ,the vendor must at time of sale, or within 7 days, give you an invoice containing the statements re quired by- the Act. The penalties range up to £100, and many seedsmen must have rendered themselves, liable there to, but...

LOST GOLF BALLS [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 21 March 1914
LOST GOLF BALLS Whose property is a lost golf Recent ministerial decisions on the point (says "The Daily N'evvs unci 'Leader" of December 27) have been somewhat mixed, and Judge Parry has a witty summing-up of some of them in the January number of "The Corn-, hill" magazine. "A golf ball, I take it," lie writey, "is the subject of ownership, although tlui ownership is of a very fleeting and pre carious nature. "Tho golf ball washed up on the sea shore and found as you take your Sun day stroll upon the beach I take to bo a Wreck de Mer, being undoubtedly in the last instance ejectum maris. "Personally," he confesses, "the kind of ball that I tee up at the tenth at Llandudno or the sixth at Xcw'iuay, or at any seaside hole, is a wreck bc foro it starts, but once driven the ship wreck is generally complete. And when such goods are cast upon the land by the sea and left there within sonv county, it seems that they belong to tho King by his prerogative as Lord of the Narrow Seas, or perh...

RE-WORKING OLD 'FRUIT TREES. Tlie latter part of January is the best time to bud to better varieties all poor or worthless varieties of fruit trees found growing in the orchard. Be sure that the buds to be used are taken from trees 'Which have borne fruit of the very best quality. Insert them on the outer or underneath side of the limbs, where it will be found that the bark usually raises more easily than on the upper side, and where they are more apt to form a well-shapen tree than where the bud? have been inserted on the upper or inner side of such limbs.
EMPIRE HARBORS [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 21 March 1914
EMPIRE HARBORS Lord Pirrie lias submitted to the Do minions Royal Commission an interest in? memorandum on the development of Imperial and other harbors from the point of view of shipowners and ship builders (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January S). He entirely adheres to the views ho expressed to the Select Committee on steamship subsidies. In 1802. as to the desirability of providing deep approaches to the chief harbors of the Empire. Alluding to develop ments which have taken place sinco then, Lord Pirrie refers to the "admir able scheme" in process of execution in the Port of London, but expresses the fear that at tlio present rate of progress it wili be quite inadequate by the tim>; it is completed. With regard to other large ports, lie mentions that the entrance of Port Phillip, at Melbourne, is steadily, if slowly, being deepened, but conotrnlne two other important trade namely, the St. Lawrence and the River Plate, there is little progress to record.

SEED WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 21 March 1914
SEED WHEAT. The farmer who has never used a seed-grader should get one as soon as possible, so as to get well acquaint ed with it before, the busy season comes. It is not bad practice to treat the wheat seed to a liquid spraying of formalin. It will prevent the smut, damage. Build silos and grow acres of maize and lucerne, and utilise the whole crop in its best form. After, all, real science in farming, • just as in everythi g else, means no thing more than knowing things. Without the knowledge there can be no Bcience. Get the best seed wheat obtainable to sow this autumn. Look around for a while before you decide on the seed you plant. The better the seed yon sow the better will !se your wheat crop. It pays to plant the plumpev berries. Grade your wheat. The farmer who is satisfied with mixed seed is on a par with the dairyman who keeps pure-bred and low-grade cows in his herd and expects a uniform butter fat. test. A reliable seed grader pays for itself in one season by the in cre...

ANTICIPATED THE EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 21 March 1914
ANTICIPATED THE EFFECT. A good story is told at the expense of an under-graduate at a certain uni versity. He was attending the chemi cal lectures of a distinguished, if not popular, professor, who had announced for his next lecture some experiments with laughing gas. The student, who knew that persons under the influence of laughing-gas were not responsible for their words or actions, saw an op portunity of telling the professor some home-truths with impunity. On the afternoon of the lecture the professor called for a volunteer for the experiments to be made, and our undergraduate promptly came to his assistance, to the amusement of the class, which had been taken into his confidence. The bag containing the hilarious gas was duly aliixed to the student's mouth, and he commcnced to inhale vigorously. The effect was magical. The student began to abuse the pro fessor in terms which are unknown in polite circles. The professor lent a patient ear to this testimony to his character, and ...
