Va iSE AND OTHERWISE. « TIIK \YIHF, MAN ANI) TIIR FOOI.. Oho, iii travelling, Dr. JUlcdso was o,\e c lingly annoyed by a pe dantic bore who forced himself upon him. and made a groat parade of hU learning'. The doctor bore it as Jon# as lie could, and at length, looking at him gravely, said "Aly friend, you and I know all Hint is to be known." "How is that?" said the man," plcnrcd with what he thought a complimentary association. " Why," said the doctor, "you know everything except that you are a fool, and I know that." / Apropos of the question . whether wo should pray for weather changes, an amusing story . is told in tho West Country. A rector was ap proached by tho churchwardens of a '"neighbouring parish with a'request that ho would ofter up prayers for the cessation of a long spell of rain. They wero naturally asked why tboy did not . go to their own rector. ' " " 'Tain't no use going to ho; he's .too fond o' fishin'," was the reply. ' " Another story on«tho samo subject is tha...

Weight of Calves. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 3 April 1914
Weight of Calves. Calves usually weigh 8 per cent, of tho weight of tho dam. Eighty pounds is a common weight, but they sometimes vary from oDlb. upward to 1251b., or even more. A calf nine days old would likoly weigh about 1201b. more than when born. For rapid growth the calf should have all tho now milk it will take without digestive troubles, and it should suck it rather than drink, it. .To supplement tho milk llicro should bo good- pasture in summer and silage and clover or lucerne hay in winter. As a grain ration to be fed tho year around as soon as tho calf will cut, nothing excels a mixture of equal purls by mea sure of ground corn, ground outs, mid bran. In order to cheapen tho grains the bran is frequently re placed by cut lucerne hay and u little meal. Sunday-school Teacher : "What do wo mean by the quick and tho dead ?" Small Hoy : "Them as get out of the way of motor-cars is quick, and them u£ don't is dead."
THE GARDEN. EFFECT OF LIGHT ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 3 April 1914
THE GARDEN. EFFECT OP LIGHT ON THE DE VELOPMENT OF FRUIT. Experiments have been marie to as certain the influence that light exor cises on the development of fruit, and the results are interesting. -The experiments were made, by let ting the fruit ripen (1) in bags that shut out all rays of light, (2) ii transparent bags giving an attenua ted light, (3) fruit exposed to full daylight; tho trials wero'raade on grapes,, cherries, pears, apples, etc., From the results it would appear that light is absolutely necessary onlj (luring the - first stages of the formation of fruit and grain. After this initial stage has passed, the fruit seem able to complete its de velopment and maturity equallv wcl! in obscuritj as in full light, nltho,i?r,i under the iafluencc ot the latter a greater amount of dry substance wn* acquired.

THE FARM. WHAT IS THE MATTER? [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 3 April 1914
THE FARM. WHAT IS THE MATTER ? Talking with a farmer not Ions since about tho present demands up on the man who tills the soil, he said : "Sometimes I get almost discour aged. It seems as though the col leges and you editors were crowding the farmers along* faster than wo know what to do. It didn't used to he so. The demands for this and that change arc coming thicker and faster." We do not wonder that some farm ers feel like this. The minds of men aro getting greatly stirred ns to the necessity for more and hettrr know ledge, for better methods concerning the handling of our farms. The verv conservative farmer, like our frien 1 above quoted, does not feel , just clear that these things arc just righf so they feel uncertain. N. Like Honest men, they want to do what is for the best. They do not feel like ad mitting. that they have been wron* in their understanding of their soil. They will confess that it does not act ns it used to twenty-five or thirty,years ago. Iiiko most men, they...

Giant Mollusc that Traps. Men. PEARL DIVERS SEIZED AND HELD AT BOTTOM OF SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 3 April 1914
Giant Mollusc that Traps. Men. PEARL DIVERS SEIZED AND HELD AT BOTTOM OF SEA. Pearling. and romance are synony mous in the youthful mind-/acts jn the industry in Australia bring; this snrao romanco closely homo to thn grown-up roador. Startod in Torrea Straits fifty years ago by a band of intrepid white mon, it has boon car ried on over since with varying good fortune. Sharks, which aro flupftos'id to be a great terror, give the average diver little concern ; ho is more afraid of the eea-cel of North Queensland. A diver is perfectly safe on the sen bottom, because man-eating sharks aro not ground-foeriers ; if they see him they wait till he rises /or a breath of air, and thou thoy try to intercept him, but tho divor and his long knife nearly alvfays win. Tho diver's worst enemy in the deep is the giant mollusc. This creature, from flvo to seven- feet across tho shell, lies with extended Jaws waiting for proy. Tho driver, .drops out of his boat with a heavy stone attached to his toot...

UHA.PTKK XIII. THK MTBSINO PASSENGER. Before half the distance was cover ed the yacht's jolly boat had come up abreast. of the launch-the latter hung back a little for it - and the two went on side by side. Leon Mon tejo was in tho boat with four of the . crew, nn&lt;\ after exchanging a few words with Captain Gore, he shot a glance at Dick that was full of men ace and hatred. Dick returned it 'scornfully, and then gave his entire attention to the Juno. Tho ship had a cripplcd appearance as she lay heaving on the swell. A few men were leaning from the rail, two were on the bridge, and others were bust ling about with considerable excite ment and noise. The launch came up to the liner amidships, where a ladder had been put out, and with cool impudence Captain Gore and six of his men clambered aboard the Juno, Peter Smock prodding Dick from behind. Montejo and ft companion followed from the jolly-boat. Dick gazed about him w.ith flashed nnd Fhamed face. Only a few of the crew,...
CHAPTER XII. A CRIME ON THE HIGH SEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 3 April 1914
CHAPTER XII. A CRIME ON THE HIGH 8KAS. For three whole days attc*r Ms in terview with Captain Gore there was llttlo or nothing to break the mono tony of Dick's confinement. Mo wan satisfied from Gore's own words, that Gxcnvillc's chain of theories had been correct in ovcry particular ; so ho could only wait patiently until that secret island-home was reached -until the final choice of life or death should he oflered him. He kept in fairij pood spirits, and did not let himself think much'of the future. A bath-room adjoined his cabin, and he was provided daily with clean linen. He had good wine and cigars, and the meals brought to him equal led the cuisine of a big ocean liner. The "something to rend" promised by Captain Gore was in the form of newspapers, Kngllsh and American, which covered a period oi several | months. They contained marked parft \ graphs, and these Dick found very j interesting. Briefly put, they showed that the public had begun to connect recent loss of ships, the...
ON FEEDING OATS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 3 April 1914
I ON FEEDING OATS. All horses when fed on' whole oats will swallow some whole oats with-: out chewing them, and the stomach cannot accomplish what the teeth fail to do. This applies to young as well hs old horses. j A general average by chemical an alysis in a stable of 100 horses, old and young, shows 21 per cant, wast ed. Meal after meal is so overtaxed with indigestible oats, which weaken nnd inflome the digestive organs so they cannot perform their functions ami extract all the - nutriment even ; from the masticateh oats; i When you feed your horse whole oats and you see whole oats in the manure, you .don't know how much nutriment the animal gets, because you sec waste with your naked eye. But when you feed your horse crushed oats you know exactly how much nutriment it will get, for all the nutritious parts of the oats will I digest. The saliva, when the oat is opened (crushed), will mix with the di»:cs-' tiblo part of the oat, whether the teeth further masticate it or not. The ...
THE DAIRY. ABOUT BUYING COWS [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 3 April 1914
THE DAIRY. ABOUT BUYING COWS A representative letter from an English dairy farmer in t.he "British ] Agricultural Press" says : - "Cow buying is ft very uncertain business, i There is much faking in the cow mar- j ket, but home-bred heifers are ftt least honest. Horns may be rubbed , down, a^d udders stocked, and other j purchases may turn out deceptive J owing to udders being what is known . as fleshy. Many cows milk well for ; the first two or three months, and [ then quickly dry off, nnd these are . just the animals which will be run | round and offered for snle after their ! next calving. Some cows which milk ed well in their own homes do badly when transferred to n new place. Some are sold because they are kick ers, or liable to blow or sutler from some recurring ailment. "No one doubts that heifers are, safer buying than cows, but the fact remains that wc are losing ground as to the supply of milking cattle by the system of dealing too exclusively with cows.

Earth Not Likely to be Dried Up. CHANGE IN RAINFALL DISTRIBUTION MERELY LOCAL. DROUGHT AND MIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 3 April 1914
Earth Not Likely to be Dried Up. CHANGE IN RAINFALL mSTKX IIUTrON MERELY LOCAIi.-' IIKOUGHT AND AlIU RATION. Combating the frequently-advanced theory that the earth is drying up, IVofessor Gregory; at . a Geographi cal Society's 'meeting held .at Tur lington House, said there was mio real evidence of more than- local changes in rainfall- distribution. ^As an inereased": rainfall had been demonstrated for so many parts 01 the world, it was * only natural to expect a compensating decrease , in other districts, . Prince Kropotkifi .had attributed, the. overthrow of tthe Koinan Empire, to the dwindling ruinfall iirCentral Asia, which turned whole tribes in to nomads owing to the repeated failures of their crops. He further contended that if this desiccation of the earth was to go on it must load to further -great political changes, forcing popula-/ tions out of the centres .into the continental margins. ? EFFECT OF TUN .DROUGHT. ; Similarly, according to Professor Myres, the various inv...

PART 5. CHAPTER XI. AN OFFER THRICE REFUSED. Captain Gore frowned ns he turned sharply from the porthole and caught Dick's glance fixed upon his face ; then he laughed an evil little laugh. "You take matters coolly, Mr. Sherlock Holmes the Second," Uc said. "And why not?" Dick asked, de fiantly. "Ay, why not ? I like your spirit, sir, and I trust you will prove as sensible as you are plucky. Had I wished it, I could have had you in ray power long ago - at any time after yon pla>ed the spy at Wap ping; Your subsequent movements, both in London aud New York, were watched by my agents. They hnd no i intention.^ of taking you yet-so long 1 as you did not attempt to use your ' fangs-and it was entirely an acci-j dent that you ran across tne Senor Monte'o tho other night and forced] his hand." | "The title you bestowed upon me", is rightly yours," Dick answered. "I am flatterfcd to think that you took such an interest io my movements." "I had reasons," said Gore, "and reasons of which ...
