SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 6 March 1914
SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. The "Electrical Times," reported, when the '"Oceana" foundered some time back, that a number of cases of Mazda lamps, consigned to Bombay Town Hall, went to the bottom. The report concluded by saying that, "dredging operations are proceeding, and we have not the slightest doubt, that in the event of one,of the boxes coming up, its contents would be found in. tact." The sequel to this (vide the "Elec trical Times" six months later) is in teresting: In a paragraph headed, "A prophecy justified," they state that of 100 Mazda lamps recovered. onlh 4 per cent. were in any way damaged-the remaining 95 per cent. being in perfect condition. This is yet another proof that Mazdas are mechanically strong, and will withstand rough usage.

THE FARM. WORN-OUT GRAZING LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 6 March 1914
THE FARM. WORN-OUT GRAZING LANDS. The proper treatment of old and worn-out grazing land often appears to be a very serious and difficult problem to many farmers. It is, how ever, one which may be readily solved. Old grass lands have become rich in nitrogenous matter, but have ursually been depleted of much of their mineral constituents, chiefly by the removal of potash and phosphate to build up the bodies of te animals grazing on them. What tlen is the chief remedy for such old and im poverished grass lands, or for poor freshly-reclaimed lands naturally de ficient? Simply to apply the potash and phosphate whose deficiency pre vents the land from yieldinz good crops of hay or carrying a rich and nutritious pasture. The required pot ash may be very profitably applied in a dressing of half or even Icwt. 30 per cent. potash manure in autumn or winter. The results of all carefully conduct ed experiments by skilful experimen ters demonstrate the advantage to I be gained by potash manuring...
THE TANNING OF WOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 6 March 1914
TIlE TANNING OF WOOD, In order to improve the colour of certain native woods pf Germany, for use in the better grades of- fur niture, a special treatment has be,: tried with success.

APPLICATION OF POTASH MANURES. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 6 March 1914
APPLICATION OF POTASH MANURES. One important feature in the skilful use of fartificials is the proper sea son of the year to apply them tre marks the "North British Agricul turist"). This point has far greater significance than most farmers cornm monly imagine. Especially is this true in the case of kainit and potash manure salts, where success or failure may depend on the season of applica tion. Kainit is a very useful manure if applied at the right time. If ap plied at the wrong time, it may be ithrown away as far as the crop in question is concerned; it might even be hurtful to some crops if used at a wrong time. The results of a large number of experiments conducted on the Con tinent and in Great Britain give valuable information on this point. The majority of them point to the advantages of early application of kainit and potash salts,' that is, au Stumn or winter application. Profitable increases are given b3 both autumn and spring applications, but in almost every case autumn...
