Spineless Cactus. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 February 1914

Spineless Cactus. While all* the fuss is going on about the spineless cactus the im porter of the fatuous fodder plant pursues the ^even tenor of his way. He spent two educative years at the Burbank farm, iu California, what time he also had large interests in a wheat growing venture in the frost-ridden wastes of Canada. He asserts the'"true" spineless cactus will reiuaiu true tj n and he has the guarantee rf i,tuber Bur bank, the dicoovtur of the plant, to back him up in his faith. You might as well say the navel orange will go back to the thick rind seeded kiud of citrus or that the proper seedless grape will revert to the raison seeded kind, as to ex pect the true spineless species of the Opuntias, which produces neither seeds or flower, or fruit, to become a plant of the nuisance order. Further, unlike the other cactus the true spineless will not grow uti le's properly planted and attended to. It produces from 100 to 400 tons of succulent fodder to the acre, sufficient to sustai...

AIR TORPEDOES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 February 1914

AIR TORPEDOES. X Swede, l.-ieutenant-CoIonel I'lige. claims to have invented torpedoes which move through the air like their predecessors in the water. lie lias made a hundred of these torpedoes, and an engine to project them. Ik says that his torpedoes can cover a distance of about 5000 yards, and can carry a charge of «%lb. of explosives, and will burst either on coming in contact with the ground or striking a wall or cannon against which they are directed, or will explode at n given time after they star! on then journey. The torpedo, which is pro jected by means of springs, carries its own motor apparatus. The initial velocity is 55 yards a second, which develops soon to a •speed of between 300 and 350 yards a second. The tor pedo lias been examined by military and naval experts, who are of opin ion that it will be an engine of the greatest importance against dirigible balloons and possibly against aero planes.

Horse Judging in England. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 February 1914

Horse -Judging in England. The following rathef serious iu dictment is published by the "Mark Lane fixpress,"as from a reputable correspondent: — I have attended most of the prin cipal shows this year, and at most of them I have seen things done, all of which were sue a as a farmer should have scorned to be iu,_aud some of which were flagrantly dis honest. Showing one horse for an other has been frequent during the last show season, but I merely mention this in passing. It is well known and is winked at by many show executives in'their greed for entries. I have even known a man show a horse in a c'ass tor which he was not either entered or qualified, and jvin. He "bluffed" the assistant-secretary out of a num ber. These however are matters that will never be put right until we have a central show authority with power to act in such cases and strength^to use its power. What I particularly wish to draw attention fo. is this—the way exhibitors be have in? the ring aud subterfuges they ...

A STORY FROM NEVADA. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 February 1914

STORY FROM NEVADA. There were seven of us in the stage out of Austin, New, and alter wo got started we counted out our cash, and found wo had exactly seventy cents in the crowd. Wo were a dead-broke gang, and bound for-Eureka. Not a man had a bundle or a gun even. Everything wc could r.ilre and scrape 'had neon put up at Austin, to buy our passage in the stage. The seventy cents were tossed into a common purse and. re-divided, so that each one had a capital o£ ten cents to start on in the oilier town. The driver had just replied that it was two o'clock in the al'tornoon. and most of us wciv asleep, when a fellow jumped into the road a few yards ahead of the leaders and ordered the stage to hale. As ho had a double-barrelled shot-gun and seemed to be full of business the driver pulled up. Then the stranger, who was a little man of great energy, came along to the right-hand door, and called oat in a brisk and chirpy way: "Now then, twenty minutes for re freshments. ami every man throw...

Distant Fields, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 February 1914

Distant Fields, &c. The Rochester irrigation district gets a pretty severe bump if a letter received by a local resident last week is all gocpel truth. It comes from Yanco, where the N.S.W. authorities are making a big bid for s?ttlers of experience and means. The writer says that lucerne grows better on Yanco soil than in Vic toria, which is rather a large order to vouch for seeing the snake and fish yarn season is not yet over. Further, the writer vows that "contentment reigns supreme" at Yanco, and the water rate is only 2s per acre foot for the first five years, after which the charge will be Is ditto, and will never be higher. Ye Gods ! and only to think a rumor is on the wing to the effect that district settlers will soon be called 011 to pay 6s per acre foot for water all rouud, instead of 5s because the authorities intend mak ing irrigation supplies available earlier in the spring. Of course the rumor may be baseless, as rumors generally are. Moreover, the writer vow...

Points in Dairy Farming. THE IMPORTANCE OF STRIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 10 February 1914

Points in Dairy Farming. THE IMPORTANCE OF STRIPPING. How indispeusible a matter iu j successful dairying is the "strip ping," as tlie process of complete 1 milking is called is quite well known to many dairv farmers, but only the comparatively few see to its being carried out." This arises mainly from the labor difficulty. It is onlv a verv small proportion of the labor availa'ue that cau he called "skilled." The unskilled and the careless are verv largely in the majority. Thus it has come that mixed farming is now being more largely entered upon, under which several products^ instead of only one, can be . more readily brought within the resources cf a family's owu labor, so as thereby to be less dependent upon outside help. Dairy farming iu this connection has always suffered most. The losses, from the neglect of complete vnilkiug aloue, when all put together amount to something considerable. These losses are of two kinds, viz., decreases in the milk yield aud iu juirv to the cows...

To make matters worse there was quite a shortage of drinks for the equine servitors on their re turn to town that was a reproach to local authorities. The excursion ists returned to the city tired, dusty, aud well-roasted. The weatlur, however, was just "it" to show the advantages of irrigation _ with the water gurgling along the channel ways, and giving the landscape a tantalising cool touch to which the adjacent green plots added appre ciably. Mr J. J. M'Clerg, who introduced the spineless cactus into the district aud caused such a flutter in the Customs dovecote thereby, is taking a trip round the different Victorian irrigation settlements after winch he intends visiting the Yanco scheme in New South Wales. Mr M'Clerg spent two years on the Bur bank farm in California. He was born in Victor...

DAIRYING. DON'T KEEP POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914

U M I R Y I N G. DON'T KEEP" POOR COWS. The dairying industry is restricted 111 progress and prosperity by two great, evils. One is the shiftless and careless dairy farmer and the other is poor cows. IV dairymen were more cnergetic the)** would be no poo;' cows, so really the cows are not to blame after all. But it is always safer to abuse ihe cow than the man. This is the rule all the world over. At tho last •annual convent lor. of tlio Wisconsin Slum.: Dairymen's Associa tion. President liurcherd delivered a vc-ry interesting .address, and among other things" said: "What dairymen need most is a re alising sense of the worse than utter wort hlessness" of a poor cow. It is (jtiiio within the truth to say that ouo tliird of all the cows in this Stale liept !>y men who profess to be dairymen do uot. pay for their board, and cannot be made to pay, and are consequently Kept at a loss;, that another third do not more than pay for their own keep ing -:\ud make good this loss, which mea...

HOUSE OF BEDFORD BURKE'S COMMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914

HOUSE OF BEDFORD BURKE'S COMMENT. The big sale of the Duke of Bed ford's property (Covent Garden) recalls a statement of Burke as to how the earlier Russells got their vast landed possessions. "The Duke of Bedford," he said, /"is the leviathan of all creatures of the Crown. . . The grants to the House of Bedford were so enormous as not only to outrage economy but to stagger credulity." At one time the Duke of Bedford was set down as holding S6,424 acres in eight counties. A great deal of his property has been sold of late years. Sir John Macdonnell, in his work on the land question, lias some severe strictures concerning the Duke of Bed ford's gates, now, of course, done away with, "which are closed at early, odd, and inconvenient hours, and which in dicate the seigneurial rights to treat some of the populous districts of Lon don as if they were private gardens." The motto of the Russells is the fatalist one, "Che sara, sara"—What wili be, will be. PRESENT DUKE. The Duke of Bedford,...
