FOOD REQUIRED BY HENS. | Oue of the findings of science ou I the subject of poultry-keeping is that a lien requires one-Iiitietn of her weight in food every day to maintain iier uodily \ igor. So, it a hen weighs tub. &lt;loz. thu daily allowance of food ought to bo: L'ois. But that allows noth ing lor the manufacture of the egg. a lien in full lay is asamed to lay iUOi;. 111 a wek. As 60 per cent. o£ an egg is water, that means that at least 4oz. more food must be allowed. a sale rule is to allow laying hens auout 3oz. of food per day. In con imeil runs, much more care has to ibe uucen to give a well-balanced ration tnan when the fowls run free. In the latter case the birds seldom ibecome 100 tat, and they keep themselves in nealiu iby eating a variety of green iood, which acts as a corrective to all sorts ot complaints to which other to wis are subject.

DEAR FOOD IN CANADA DEMANDS TARIFF Itli VISION Kmphasising the fact that tariff re form and the abolition of food taxes is now the policy of the Dominion Libe ral party. Sir Wilfrid Laurler put for ward a strong plea lor tho Western farmers in tlie Debate on the Address in the House of Commons last night (states the Ottawa correspondent of "The,Daily News"). He' declared that for the first lime in IB years unemployment was rife in tho leading cities of Canada. Three years ago there was not a man out of work in the city of Winipeg, but now there were over ItOOO, and all over the country men were seeking work and not'finding it. Altogether, lie believed that there were something like 100,000 unemployed in the Dominion. The way to relieve the depression, said Sir Wilfrid, was to reduce the high cost of living by means of down ward revision of the tariff. Tho cry ing need of the West is fresh mar kets, and the removal of the duties on wheat would be a well-merited concession to the farm...
KAISER'S EXERCISE WIELDS THE AXE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 April 1914
KAISER'S EXERCISE WIELDS THE AXE. U is understood that during his usual winter residenco at Potsdam the Kmperor William, on the recommenda tion of his physicians, has devoted a good deal of time and energy to the chopping of wood (says the Berlin cor respondent of "The Telegraph.") Clad in Court hunting dress, the monarch could be seen almost every morning in the grounds of the palace—of the pri vilege of access to which the public makes but little use at this time of the year—vigorously plying a saw on the trunks and branches of trees, and then, with undiminished energy, hew ing the short logs into pieces of con venient size for burning. In this occupation he was assisted by an expert workman, placed at his disposal by the management of the Koyal gardens. Not infrequently the Empress watched her consort at his unfamiliar exercise, and jocularly measured up the pile of firewood to see whether the prescribed daily task had been fully accomplished, while.oc casionally an aide-de-camp ...
PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 April 1914
PRUSSIAN EXECUTIONS. I It is notew rthy that two murderers have recently sunered capital punish I ment in Jfrussia, because only some ! four to eight per cent, ot capital sen | tences are carried out in Germany, the ! proportion in Great Britain being over i on per cent. iThe newspapers common ly speak ot these German criminals as victims ot the axe or block, without much discrimination. By the German law all capital punishments must be carried out by beueading, tbut it is lett to the separate States to choose their own metnod. In those districts which were annexed by Napoleon I. the guil lotine still prevails. Other regions may use the axe, the sword, or a car ving kuile it they please. The Prus sian method is that, the victim sit ting in a chair, he is beheaded by a horizontal sweep oE a long sword.

The offer was refused. Robert Urowning constantly refused to write for the magazines and re views. lie o'liy departed from his self-denj ing ordinance on one occa sion, and that was in aid of charity. In his later days, when Browning so cieties were springing up all over Britain and America, fabulous priccs wore offered to him even for a short •poem, lie put all these tempting offers aside and "stuck to his text" i to his dying day.

\ THE WOMAN WHOM WAGNER I LOVED. The Famous Musician's Melody of Life. The deposition of the mail kind, Otto of Bavaria, which has just been deci ded, recalls to the minds of all music lovers the genius of the greatest mo dern composer, Richard Wagner. For it was King Ludwig, the brother, of the poor madman, who befriended Wagner in the days of his greatest poverty, mil whose patronage enabled him to produce his immortal works. King Ot to himself was a friend oT this hero of music. Wagner's operas, "Lohengrin," 'Tannhausor," and the jther master pieces of his "Niebeiungenlicd," are now popular throughout the world. But when he produced them they aroused the hatred of his critics and a passion ate storm of ridicule and contempt. Ho wrote some of them in direst poverty and with the despairing courage of a man who knows that he is in advance of his time They reflect the storm and stress of his own life and charac ter, but they reveal also the nobility and idealism and tenderness which ...
