SUNSHINE AND SNOW SPORT IN THE ENQADINBL New Year's Day in tho Swiss moun tain resorts is (says a special corres pondent of 'Tho Daily Nows and Lead er," writing from Pontresina), one of glorious sunshino and lntonso frost. Better conditions for tho skaters who havG gathered here from nil tho corners of Europo havo never been known; but the ski-ers are still looking for moro snow. Yesterday there were a few grey clouds that gave them hope, but . the snow suddenly changed its tickle mind, and ahis morning tho region of white abovo tho Engadine Valley was defined in gold and blue by a resplen dent sunrise. There is no wind, except that repoit ed by ski-ers in the hotel smoking room, who have laboriously climbed all day to tho snowflelds to find it, and then sailed down to tea in minutes to tell us of "wind up there liko sharp knives."

A DAIRY FARMER DROPS INTO POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 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 lie has chosen to do. He's lazy, or elso 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 wuh 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.

MR CHAMBERLAIN IMPERIAL STATESMAN. (By N.

SEED WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 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 ljusy season comes. It is not bad practice to treat the wheat seed to a liquid spraying of formalin. It will prevent the smut damage. Build silos and grow acres of maize and lucerne, and utilise the whole trop ill its best form. After all, real science in farming, just as in everything else, means no thing more than knowing things. Without the knowledge there can lie no science. Get the best seed 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 be youv wheat crop. It pays to plant the plumper berries. Grade your wheat.

TRUE BLUE CATS WOMEN FANCIERS TRIUMPH. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 March 1914

TRUE BLUE CATS WOMEN FANCIERS TRIUMPH. The triumph of the true blue, of the real blue blood, was tho distinguishing mark of the two days' cat show openod yesterday at tho Horticultural Hall, Westminster (says "The Daily Mail" of January 9). It was the biggest show of cats ever held, and the blues were the biggest class. Tho blue cat was .'invented" just thirty years ago by Miss Simpson and is a monument to the peculiar skill of women as fanciers. The blue was "created" marvellously out of a com bination of black and white. At first the blues were also tabbies, but now these skilful women fanciers have got rid of all tabby markings, and tho blood Is so bluo that a blue cat always pro duces a blue, though now and again a little black blood Is allowed. And very beautiful the blues are, us well as true. CATS WITHOUT A FLAW. Tho judges, a majority of them women, wso posed the cats successively on a green baizo card-table and searched for both flaws and fakings, could find neither In the ...

ANTICIPATED THE EFFECT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 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 of a distinguished, if not popular, professor, who had announced for 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 undergraduate 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 affiled 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, a...

EMPIRE HARBORS [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 March 1914

EMPIRE HARBORS Lord Pirrio has submitted to the Do minions Royal Commission an Interest ing memorandum on the development of Imperial and other harbors from the point of view of shipowners and ship builders (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 8). He entirely adheres to the vlewo ho expressed to the Soloct Committee on steamship subsidies, In 1902, as to the desirability of providing deep approaches to the chief harbors of tho Empire. Alluding to develop ments which have taken place since then, Lord Pirrie refers to the "admir able scheme" in process of execution in the Port of London, but expresses tho fear that at tho present rate of progress It will bo quite inadequate by the time, i it is completed. j With regard to other large ports, he I mentions that tho entranco of Port I Phillip, at Melbourne, Is steadily, if , slowly, being" deepened, but concerning two other important trade centres, namely, the St. Lawrencp and the River Plate, there is little progress to record.

LOST GOLF BALLS [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 20 March 1914

LOST GOLF BALLS Whose property is a lost golf ball? Recent magisterial decisions on the point (says "The Daily News and Leader*' of December 27) have beon somewhat mixed, and Judge Parry has a witty faumming-up of some of them In the January number of "The Corn hill" magazine. "A golf ball, I take it," lie writes, "is . the subject of ownership, although the ownership is of a very fleeting and pre carious nature. "Tho golf ball washed up on the seu shoro and found as you take your Sun day stroll upon tho beach I take to be a Wreck de Mer, being undoubtedly in tho last instance ejectum maris.

POLICE AND LAMPS CRESSET TO ELECTRIC TORCH [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 27 March 1914

POLICE AND LAMPS CHESS 1ST TO ELECTIUC TORCH Tho London policeman's "bull's eye" is, according to report, shortly to pass nwav (says the "Daily Tele graph" of January S). In its stead he is to have an electric torch, which will spread light before and around him, while he himself remains un seen. At his bidding there will be light, though doubtless there will be times when, pressing a button with twentieth century confidence in science, he will call for light and none will come. But that modern wizard, the electrician, may bo trusted to see to it that these occasions are rare. "Beloved Peeler" has become so much an Institution with us that we are apt to forget there was a. time when, so far from being thus affec tionately hailed in song, he was tho ! target for hearty abuse and ridicule.

The Coliseum, he maintained, was In what might be called tho pleasure ground of the metropolis-in clubland. In the district where tho large hotels were. It had no parallel in the world. That part of London had become ill* most international in character. There was no allegation that there«had been anything like disorder, demoralisation, or misconduct at this hall.
