TOWN TRAFFIC CONTROL ISIiUSSELS AN1) ANTWI3UP (By II. If. Gordon, L.C.C., in "Tho Daily News und Leader") I he population ol' the kingdom of l.elglum numbers seven and a half millions. Jt contains cities like Brus M--S Antwerp, Liege and Ghent, each villi a world-wide reputation. One recalls with surprise that all these titles uIk! the rest of the kingdom between them contain a population not more numerous than that of Greater London. Geography hooks deuiare that Brussels has over 000,000 inhabitants. Jn reality the four square miles which constitute the city pro per are inhabited by less than 180,000 persons, which is only slightly in ex cess of the population of the Metro politan Borough of Battersea. For political reasons, In order that the capital shall not become a serious rival to the State, it is divided into nine areas, each self-contained and completely independent. There are no visible boundaries. ICven more curi ous is the ease of Antwerp. Within tlie same city walls thre...

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 bo clearly and Indelibly marked on the outside of each packet (section 6). Tako 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 rc iiuired by the Act.

ROYAL HANDSHAKES I KIXU DECORATES BUAV1C MEN'. No more pleasurable duty falls to Kins George's lot than that of confer ring: decorations on those of his sub jects who have distinguished themselves by heroic deeds. He was again so occu pied on Tuesday at Buckingham Palace (says "Lloyd's Weekly," of De cember 21). For a very brave act the Albert Medal of the First Class was awarded to Henry Frederick Ewington. On July 1 a titter on the Metropolitan Hallway fell on a live electric rail at Aldersgate street station. He was unable to re lease himself, and his leg was being badly burned. The stationmaster shouted for a port«_>r to fetch the in sulating rubber gloves, but while these were liuing fetched a train entered the station on the same line. Ewington jumped 011 to the perman ent way and pulled the man's leg clear of the rail, though lie received several shocks in doing so, and got the man be tween the two sets of rails.

LOST GOLF BALLS [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 March 1914
LOST GOLF BALLS Whoso property is a lost golf ball? Recent magisterial decisions on the point (says "The Daily News and 'leader" of December 27) have bean somewhat mixed, and Judge Parry has a witty summing-up of some of them in the January number of "The Corn hlll" magazine. "A golf ball, I take it," ho writes, "is tho subject of ownership, although the 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 X take to be 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 Newttuay, or at any seasido hole, is a wreck be fore it starts, but once driven tho ship wreck is generally complete. And when such goods are cast upon the land by tho sea and left there within some county, it seems that they belong to the King by his prerogative as Lord of the Narrow Seas, or perh...

A DAIRY FARMER DROPS INTO POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 21 March 1914
A DAIRY FARMER DROPS INTO POETRY. A dairy farmer embodies his faith, as well as his words, in the following expressive poem, which he has hung in his stable to be known and read by all who visit his tidy premises:— I haven't much faith in the man who complains Of the work he has chosen to do. He's lazy, or else he's deficient in brains, And, maybe, a hypocrite, too. He's likely to cheat, and he's likely to rob; Away with the man who finds fault w:ih his job. Dut give me the man with the sun in his face And the shadows all dancing be hind; Who can meet his reverses with calm ness and grace, And never forget to be kind. For, whether he's wielding a sceptre or swab, I have faith in the man who's in love with his job.

ANTICIPATED THE EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 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 o£ a distinguished, if not popular, professor, who had announced lor 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 undergraduata 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 affixed to the student's mouth, and he commenced 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 ...

SEED WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 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 conies. !t is not bad practice to treat the wheat seed to a liquid spraying of formalin. It will prevent the smut damage. Liuikl 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 moro than knowing things. Without the knowledge there can be no science. Get the best 6eed wheat obtainable to sow this autumn. Look around for a while before you decide on the seed you plant. The better the seed you sow the better will lie your wheat crop. It pays to plant the plumpeF 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 creas...
