SEASONABLE HINTS. Skimmed or separated milk Is suitable Tor -young and growing stock. It can t-e used Instead of water to mix pollard or other meal. The result will certainly prove satisfactory. The 'dust bath' Is essential to the general health of the feathered stock. A mixture of fine sand and ashes, to which ? has been added a little sulphur, makes a very good dust bath. A box or frame oiiuuiu ue ustru xvi tuc lpmlu. iv djiuuiu be covered, in such a way as to keep the mixture dry. j Fowls that are required for table should be kept for at least twelve hours without food before being killed. They will bleed better, and thus leave the ! flesh whiter. The process, ot cleaning ' and drawing will also be made much easier. Do not waste money In building fancv houses for poultry. Make them roomy, j watertight, and free fiom draughts. The extra money should be spent In stocking . the bouse and pen with good breeding ; birds from which substantial profit may ' be expected. .

On one point hti said: —'The great problem of the future Is whether America can assimilate the Im mense new populations from tbe Old 'World. New York itself Is the most cosmopolitan oi cities. jsvery fourth man Is a Jew. There are hundreds of thousands of Germans, Italians, and representatives of the Eastern races. People are flocking in, not only from Eastern Europe but from Western Asia. Can all these alien elements be absorbed in to the national life?

OUIDA AND HER DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 9 October 1907

On Lit A AND HER DOGS. Until two years ago Mile, de la Ramee occupied at Sanf Alesslo, Lucca, a splendid three-story villa, adjoining a church. She was known (says the Florence correspondent of the 'Dally Mall') as the Lady of the Dogs -Sig- nora. del Canl), as she had Invariably 30, and was seen always with a number of them around her. Her intense ?fond- ness, for dogs, coupled with a certain megalomania, caused her on one fam ous occasion to give a meal of milk, . bread and meat to every dog in Lucca. She paid the bill for this extraordinary banquet willingly,' though, as. previously when living in Florence, heavy debts ?'« were crowding upon her through hfer utter ignorance of the value of money. . I fear that on several occasions about this time she went foodless a whole day, remarking, 'It is sufficient If the dogs eat.' Frequently her maid appealed to the owner of the villa for a supper for her mistress. In the end tbe landlord of the villa turned 'Ouida' out. There was a disp...

Such .critics for- i get the immense widening of the edu- - catlonal horizon which the last century iias seen, in earlier centuries me men who went to Oxford and Cambridge sought some knowledge of Greek and Latin, of theology, and of mathematics, medicine, or law. With a smattering of such culture they could enter a profes sion or pass as educated gentry. No thing more was needed. . Modern life is more exacting. Natural science must be taught in all its Innumerable branches; modern history has become an exhaustive and exacting study; mo dern languages or literature have to be studied, and the clues to Oriental lan guages ...
