II. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 21 February 1914

II. 1 Alton about threo-quarters of an hour's walk wo camo to tho spot mark ; i»d on tho map. It proved to be, as Jim had said, a lonely enough spot. A narrow country rond, scarcely more than a lane, rtm steeply down a hill between high banks, crossed a valley, and then, turning sharply asido, ran obliquely up the opposite slope. In crossing the valley the rond passed first over a low bridge, under which a brook rippled ploasantly, then ft few yards farther on was spanned by a solidly built railway-arch. . Tho railway itself skirted some wood ed slopce and crossed tho rond, over tho bridge, almost at right angles. There was no house \i sight, and tho only sound was that of tho cows munching tho abundant grass in the meadows on cither sido of us. One could scarcely conceive of a logs likely scene for an ojuration by 0110 of One-eyed Steve's kidney than this "sylvan spot. Thero was nobody to swindle but the cows. I said so with a laugh, hut Jim sat on the low wall bor dering tho litlo...

WHITE ANTS AND FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 21 February 1914

WHITE ANTS AND FRUIT TREES. Open out the soil and dig in a few pounds of kainit (German pot ash). It will keep* them away, and kill a number "by contact, at the same time acting as a good manure. Bisulpliate of carbon would not last long enough; it would certainly kill all the white ants that came in con tact with it, but if put too close might kill the trees too, and it would be expensive. Apterite is of little value In dealing with white ants. Mr. Froggart (Government Entomolo gist) says he has seen trooi with the whole of the inner portion of the trunk piped by white ants, but the bark and sapwood alive and growing crops of fruit, the only danger being that they may snap off 1n a wind. He lias known good bearing trees In this State which are almost hollow, but after Uioy had been opened and clean ed out and the cavity filled with ce ment (forming a solid central col limn) trees have lived for years. Poisoned bran forced Into a cavity in a 'branch or stem will sometimes attract an...

THE PIGGERY. Profitable Rearing. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 21 February 1914

THE PIGGERY. Profitable Rearing. Tlio whole secret In rearing profit able pigs is to get well-bred ones, and 'by consistent feeding keep thom going without a check until they are sent to market. Perhaps the most prolific breeds are Berkshlres, York shires, and Tamwortlis. Excellent baconers are obtained fcy crossing Tamworths and Berkshlres. There is 110 dubt that the Berkshlres are general favorites, but it must bo re membered that tlio favorite doea not always win the cup; and, after giving the Berkshlres credit 'for many good pointR, it will, perhaps, <be found that the most useful types are the Middle York and the York-Berksliiro cross, hccauso the Yorkshire will grow in to a first-grade liacon pig on less feed than any other breed, and in less time. In crossing Yorkshires and Berkshlres, it 'is found to be the 'best plan to uso tlio Berkshire boar, -because the Yorksliiro sow is a 'bet ter mother than tlio Berkshire, and requires very llttlo to keep licr 1n condition...

PURE WATER FOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 21 February 1914

PURE WATER FOR COWS. Pure water tor cows Is as import ant In milk production as tho food thoy eat. .Much lias been written concerning tho rations for dairy cows, but not so much about tho water the cow drinks and its rela tion to pure milk and the health of the animal. The dairy cow needs an abundant supply of pure water, not only as an aid to digestion and other bodily needs, but to produco hor nor mal supply of milk. If the cows do not get enough water, the milk flow will he decreased, just as surely as if they did not got enough food. There nre various reasons why water consumed by- dairy cows should he pure. In the first place, pure water promotes the health of the animals. Cows which arc compelled j to drink Impure "wator usually fall away rapidly. Impure water contains the ova of dangerous parasites. These parasites attack all kinds of farm animals that drink water containing the cva. The dangerous thing Is that the cause of the loss of animals by parasites is unsuspected, and...

CHAPTER XIV. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 21 February 1914

CHAPTER XIV. The church presented an empty and dreary appearance. One or two peo ple, scenting a wedding, had gathered outside, and a few had entered. A wedding, like a funeral, has a fascina tion for some, though they have no personal knowledge of those concern ed. But the wedding-party Itself was composed only of the family and the nurse-companion who had arrived that morning to replace Queenie. One pew sufficed for them. Mrs. Price, who had spent ten pounds to advantage on her clothes, looked frail and excited. Her wan cheeks were Rushed hectically, and she shed tears at frequent intervals. The bride and her father had not yet arrived, and Mi chael Thorne. and his best mail had only just taken their place at the al tar rulls. The nurse companion was seated beside -Mrs. Pnice; Beryl, also fitting ly arrayed, suffering martyrdom, was on the other side of her mother. Next to her Philip, in clothes painfully new and gloves a size too big for him. He looked as if ho would have welcome...
