LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 March 1914
LUCERNE. Lucerne is talked of more tlinu ever now at our dairy meetings. It is a well known fact that it furnishes the cheapest source of protein of any roug.hnge grown. One thing strongly emphasized by the experts is that it will not start under the ordinary conditions usually given other crops , by farmers. Quite contrary to the prevalent opinion, it needs a rich, sweet, thorough!} cultivated, well drained soil at the beginning. When once started it has been found to be one of the easiest crops to grow ever kinown. After a lield is well set it docs not require ns much care, and as one farmer said at a recent meet ing, "the more you abuse it then, the better it doe«." -"Jerwy Bulk 19,18. |

"I thought you would know at once," he sn 1&lt;1. "Von suroly suspect, old clinp-It's Miss Forrls." "Mary Forris !" Ulck muttered. Ho did not know flint ho lind spoken aloud. His face hardened, and his lmnd shook n little as ho lifted a glass of wine to bis lips. "I con gratulate you," he said, in a low voice. "You have won a pearl of a woman." "Yes, I have," replied Grenvilic, who was stupidly blind to the effect his avowal had produced on his com panion. "Thanks for your congratu lations. I am a happy man, Dick, and only two days ago I felt miser able and uncertain-you see I came to London resolved to try my fate, /ind Imvo It over one way or the other.

CHAPTER III.-(Continued.) Dick darted across the pavement, and clasped tbo outstretched hand. "Gronvlllc, my dear fellow !" he' cried. "Why, I thought the Malta was thousands of miles away! When did you come to town ?" "Three dajs ago - got a month's leave," was the reply. "Awfully sorry but I didn't have a chanco to look you up. Come and lunch with mo." "Oan't ; liuve an engagement." "Let your tailor wait," Grenville_ laughed. "I'll take no denial. I have' so much to tell you. Come along-., old man." Dick yielded and took n seat In tho cab.

It was like nnother world, with the soft artificial light shining on plate and linen, on the rlclily-colour od innrai decorations, on black-clad waiters moving noiselessly over the thick carpet. Dick glanced about tho lunch room, which was moderately full. He nod ded to several acquaintances, and then hi...
APPLICATION OF POTASH MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 March 1914
APPLICATION OF POTASH MANURES. -f One Important feature In the skilful use of artificials is the proper sea son of the year to apply them (re marks the "North British Agricul turist"). This point has far greater significance thun most farmers com monly imagine. Especially is tliiH true in the case of kainit and potash manure salts, where success or failuro mny depeml on the season of applica tion. Kainit is a very useful manure if applied at the right time. If ap plied at the wrong time, It may bo thrown away as far as the crop In question is concerned ; it might ovon bo hurtful to some crops if used at n wrong time. The results of a large number of experiments conducted on the Con tinent and in CJroat Britain givo valuable information on this point. The majority of them point to the advantages of early application of kainit and potash salts, that is, au tumn nr winter application. Profitable increases are given bj both autumn and apring applications, but In almost every case autumn...

CHAPTER V. AT THE SIGN OF THIS JOLLY WATERMAN. For a moment Dick was silent. He pondered over tho Spaniard's words, hut with no intontlon of taking them seriously. He was curious to know to what illegitimate use the yacht was to be put-that it had been purchased with somo shady motive In view he was satisfied. And, remembering cer tain rebellions then nourishing in dif [crcnt parts of the world, he quickly concluded that he had found the clue. He pushed hack his chair and rose to I his feet. "Your oiler is a iittle loo tempt ing, too flowery, Senor Montejo," be said, coldly. "I beg to decline It with thanks. I doubt 11 the allure ments you hold out would compen sate me for a cell in somo foreign prison, though you may not regard that as a shadow of Peril or misfor tune-to quote your own words." Tho Spaniard's black eyes flashed menacingly. "Sir, I request that you make your ' meaning plain," he answered. "Do you accuse me of having illegal de Bigns .&lt; "I accuse you of not...
THE ORIGIN OF CROCHET. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 March 1914
THE ORIGIN OF CROCHET. Few people are aware how the art ei crochet originated, and like most arts, it owes its invention to nature. In,the early part of the nineteenth century Mdlle. Riego, a French lady, was walking one day in the harvest fields. Her attention waj struck by seeing the harvesters making a chala from the Jong straws which they knot ted together 'on', the points of theli reaping hooks, and when finished they tied the sheaves together with this novel binding. Mdlle. Riego was In' genious enough to evolve the art of crochet from this idea; she procured a small hook and tried what she could do with a chain of cotton, and gradu ally. thanks to her artistic skill and unwearying patience, crochet became a reality. Mddle. Riego was very friendly with the nuns at the Black Roc'k Convent, Dublin, anc'l taught. them , how , to crochet the many beautiful designs she created; in which patterns of the finest antique laces «ere reproduced, end these patterns are still used at the c...
A GOOD MAXIM. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 March 1914
A GOOD MAXIM. It was. a, rich , woman who said she owed her comfortable Income to the fact that all her life she had never con tracted a debt. "Pay as you go," was her maxim in life. Try it, and sea how .sure a.rule'It is to follow. In the first, place. It teaches you how much you can do without. For though many women think nothing of buying little odds and'ends which run away with so much money when they are put down to an account, they Invari ably hesitate and' think twice about paying outright for them.
A FATAL MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 March 1914
A FATAL MISTAKE. A gieat many people seem to think that the marriage ceremony absolves them from all further courtesies and attentions to the person whom they have wed. After that they are always lu negll see, both as to manners and clothes, when they are at home. This Is a fatal mistake. Because n woman is married is no excuse for her going untidily about the house and telling her husband home truths that hurt his vanity. Because a woman is his wife, gives a man no right to say things to her he would not dare to say to any other lady who possessed, 4 big, able-bodied brother. ^ Good manners are the preservative >1 peace and concord, and are warran ted to keep happiness in any climate. The problem of how to be happy though married is really no problem at all., Xo mystery should ever have .teen made of It. It Is merely fair dealing In fair part uershlp-giving' the other party the iame privileges and. perquisites you assume for yourself, and allowing the person you love as much con...

WRITING LOVE-LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 March 1914
WRITING LOVE-LETTERS. Regarded as a hobby for tlie spare moments, writing love-letters lias not only, its dangers, but is one in wlilcti few people excel. To tell the truth In a phrase, every man Is a little the wiser for the love-letters he never writes. "My dear hoy," said an old lawyei . to Ills son, "never write a love-letter, and never destroy But men will write, and women *111 keep, though time makes most love letters too vivid In a book, and many of them too costly in a law court. They make contemporaries laug'j, and posterity shake its head. Few of our classic groat men havo improved their reputation by their love-letters. The oldest love-letter In the world was written four thousand years ago, on a brick, by Gemll the Babylonian to the lovely Kashbuya, living at the "Two Slppars." "May the aun of Marduck," says he, "give thee eternal life. I would fain know if thy health Is good." No love-letter written since has shown any improve ment on that. It is "as safe as hou ses," a...

THE SUN LOSING ITS HEAT? [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 March 1914
n THE SUN V08INQ ITS HEATl Eminent scientists the world ovei Mse'rt that the sun is gradually losing Its heat, and that for years the diame ter of the sun has been contracting af the'rate of fifty-six yards a year. A reduction of only 10 per cent, in the heat of the sun, says Professor ' Doolittle,"Director of the Flower Ob servatory of the University of Peunsj-I vania, would drive every civilised be . Ing out of Canada, and the northern border of the United States would then bccome the upper limit of habitation. "As the heat of the sun diminish es," he says, "so the inhabitable zone will grow smaller north and south, until at last only a little band will ex ist around the earth at the Tropics. This band, too, will In time fade away." Professor Newcomb estimates the time when life will become extinct on the earth at from 4,000,000 to 5,000,000 years. Such calculations are not intend ed to take into consideration any sud den catastrophe that might terminate the earth's career. Within...
