EXPERIENCE IMPERATIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 January 1914
EXPERIENCE IMPERATIVE. It requires the satae treatment of good judgment and'perseverance to succeed in .the poultry business as it does ji other lines ol business. There are not any more adverse conditions to encounter than there are in other lines. But about the first time a poultry-raiser encounters a really dis couraging thing, his enthusiasm suf fers such a shock as to make recovery doubtful. There is not another busi neBs that can be mentioned the pro duct of which is in greater demand. Then, why should large. numbers of people who enter it continue to fail? The greatest reason iB because a great majority of those who take up poultry-railing do so without any pre vious knowledge of the business. The next great reason is bepause of the continued problems * which come up daily to be solved, and which, if not solv 3d with good judgment, lead to positive disappointment and loss. Thirdly, beoause profits do not roll in ,a: fast ae they had been led to be liev'o cbey would by the ext...

GREEN MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 January 1914
GREEN MANURING. Green manuring increases the or ganic content of tho soil, which is a dominating factor in soil fertility, ihe restoration of organic matter is a problem of fundamental importance to tlio wheat areas. The turning in of green crops is one of the moat rapid methods of increasing the or ganic reserves in the soil. Whether this practice may bo profitably work ed in with the ordinary rotations in the wheat areas has not hitherto been the subject of experimental investiga tion. The crops to be used for this purpose may bo nitrogen patherers, such as peas, vetchos, and other le guminous crops, or nitrogen consum ers, such as rye, rape, mustard, etc. Tho former crops restore to tho | soil all the organic matter secured from tho carbon dioxide of the air during the course of their growth, but they also secure, for the use of the | succeeding crop, a large quantity of combined nitrogen from the atmo sphere. Thus they enrich the noil In organic matter and in nitrogen. Tho impor...
HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 January 1914
HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. Late or heavy suppers are a com mon cause of insomnia, especially that iorin of it in which people fall into a heavy sleep, only to awake with a start an hour or two later and find themselves unable to sleep again until early morning perhaps. Digestiou comes almost to a dead stop during sleep, so that suilicient time should be allowed for the last meal to be dis posed of before the hour for retiring. This interval should be two hours at least, which nieaiftj that half-past eight is as a rule late enough for the evening meal. In any case, the food which is taken then ought to be of a light nature, and not include pork, cold meat, or any other article of diet which Ib slow of digestion. Coffee and strong tea are unsuitable at this hour, as they tend to cause sleep lessness. Cocoa, made with water, is a much better 'beverage for use with tl e evening meal or after it. ,

A DOUBTFUL BARGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 January 1914
A DOUBTFUL BARGAIN. The inarriage ceremony as seen in America is often' very quaint, accord ing to our staider ideas and traditions. In his "Wonder Book" (lie Reverend Li. n. Hates, long associated ivith the East Boston Bethel, U.S.A., tells of an amusing marriage ceremony perform ed toy his father: — About nine o'clock one night the old parsonage on Cape Cod was approach ed by a man and a woman in a "one horse shay." Hearing the wheels, Father Bates went, to the door, to see coming up the walk a buxom lass of two hundred pounds or so, followed by a very little mail. With a giggle she announced: "We've coine to be married, par son, haven't we. Bill?" An energetic nudge succeeded in eliciting the desired affirmation from "Bill." The parson examined the li cense and proceeded to business. "PleaBe join your right hands," he said. "Dearly beloved, you are gath ered here for the purpose of holy ma trimony. IJo you " But he was here interrupted by the bride. "Say, parson, before you go an...

Avoiding Eye-Strain. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 January 1914
Avoiding Eye-Strain. Eye strain is said to be largely a defect ot civilisation. To counteract it, children should be encouraged to use their eyes at long range. A teacher who has a surprisingly small amount of eye-strain among her pupils attri butes it to her practice of making the scholars drop their work at the end of each hour and look out of the win dow. There is a contest as to who cau seo tlw farthest. ThiB rests and trains tho eyes and teaches observa tion. A woman who does fine sewiug for her living found her eyes strained and weak. She was advised to drop her sewing every half-hour and look for i- minute into spaco. Relief was quick, and the eye-strain disappeared. Short-sighted people who hold their book or work clos« will ease eye strain and lengthen their vision if they frequently remove thoir glasses rnd look at some object on the hori zon. The long-distance training will not, however, relieve eye-strain that cornea from astigmatism, reckless dis regard of the ej^es, or...
Impure Air and Scrofula. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 17 January 1914
Impure Air and Scrofula. The atmosphere of all rooms should be frequently renewed by proper ven tilation. The best method) of accom plishing this has been for. inany years a subject closely studied by sanitar ians. in rooms, and especially in bed rooms, the fireplace should always be left unclosed. The windows should be pulled down from the top, and up from the bottom. All rooms, and es pecially Bleeping apartments, should u» well aired during the day. Impure air in bedrooms is eonsiderd by emin ent medioal authorities to be one of the most potent causes of cousumption iind scrofula. A well-known French physician who has devoted much at tention to studies of this nature says: "it will ofton be found, on axamina. tion, that scrofulous diseases are caused by vitiated air, and it is not always necssary that there should have been a prolonged stay in sucb an atmosphere. Only a few hours cach day is sufficient; and a person may live in a most healthy district, pass the greater part of ea...
