Too Much for the Ghost. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 January 1914
Too Much for the Ghost. Archbishop Thomson once "laid" a ghost in a very Bimple way. Staying at a country house with traditions of a family ghost, he was put up for the night in the "haunted chamber." Jn the morning his hosts were anx ious to know if he had seen anything "Oh.vyes," he replied; "about twelve o'clock I heard a knock at the door I said, 'Come in,' come in.* " "And did he come?" "Yes; an old sallow-looking man." "Ye.s, tfrat is our ghost! What did you do?" "I got out of bed apd ssked if be belonged to the house. He nodded as sent. I asHed hlip if be were n par ishioner. He nodded again. Then I said, 'I am anxious to build some new Bchools; will you give me a subscrip tion?' He disappeared and I saw him bo more!" We always preach what we expect tije other fellow to practise. " (
GREEN MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 January 1914
GREEN MANURING. Green manuring increases the or ganic content of the soil, which ia a dominating factor in soil fertility, l ne restoration of organic matter is a problem of fundamental importance to the wheat areas. The turning in of green crops is one of the most rapid methods of increasing the or ganic reserves in the soil. Whether this practice may be profitably work ed in with the ordinary rotations in the wheat areas has not hitherto been (he subject of experimental Investiga tion. The cropB to be used for this purpo33 may be nitrogen patherers, such as peas, vetches, and other le guminous crops, or nitrogen consum ers, such as rye, rape, mustard, etc. The former crops restore to the soil all the organic matter secured from the 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 soil in organic matter and in nitrogen. The important...

IN FANNY BURNEY'S GARDEN, i I Aii amusing account of the horti cultural pursuits—and ineptitude—of General d'Arolay, the French emigre who became Funny Burney's huB baud, is given in an article in the "Cornhill" Dy tJir Henry Lucy:— The young couple began their mar ried lire in apartments in a farm house ou the summit of Bagden Hill. Thence they moved to a soinewuat larger cottage at Bookham. Finally, wnen "Camilla" proved a linancial success, they built themselves a nouso on the outskirts of iNorbury Park, known during their residence as "Camilla Cottage.'1 From tnt llrtl, Al. d'Arblay, con scious of inadequacy to bear his lair bliaie in the wherewithal lor meeting the cost ot tne little household, de veloped a iKursome frenzy for gar dening. iJuisuit ot the vocation m voiv-eu Uiin in delighttully ludicrous diiemmas.

HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 January 1914
HEALTH NOTES. The Evil of Late Suppers. Late or heavy suppers are a com mon cause of insomnia, especially that form of it iu 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. Digestion comes almost to a dead stop during sleep, so that suflicient time should be allowed tor tho last meal to be dis posed of before the hour for retiring. This interval should bo two hours at least, which meatft 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 meal, or any other article of diet whioh 1b 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 BERESFORD IN WAR TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 January 1914
A BERESFORD IN WAR-TIME. The Beresfords have ail been fa mous Cor the courage that 'borders on recklessness. Lord William Beres ford sorved in the Zulu War iu 1879, winning the V.C., and in his book, "Campaigns of a War Correspondent," Mr. Melton Prior relates some striking stories of him:— In the retreat Lord William Beres ford, turning around, saw the four lege of a -white horse kicking in the air, Realising at once that It belonged to one of our men, he rode straight for it, and found that the horse had-been shot and that the rider had fallen half sturined. "Get up!" Lord William said to the man, but he seemed to dazed to an swer; whereupon Lord William said, "If you don't get up at once I will jump down and punch your head!" —at which the man did rise slowly. Lord William succeeded in helping him on to the horse behind him; once mounted, the man clutched Beresford around the waist, and so they gallop ed off. All the time this was taking place the Zulus were firing from a donga c...
CHAPTER XLIII. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 January 1914
CHAPTER XLIII. The crush in the Court the next I morning would hav# done credit to a Drury-lane matinee. It is no exaggera tion to say that the highest in the land fought, and not always unsuccessfully, with the lowest in the land; both strata were equally interested in the parties in the case. For instance, Mr. Bossy Jim was seated net far off from Lady Constance Silvertop and Mrs. Wil lougbhy West, both of whose dresses he had impartially stamped upon and torn in his efforts to gaze upon his quondam playmate, Lady Pcltigew, and hear his particular pal, Air. James Mor dan, give evidence, should he be called upon to do so. At the outset of the resumption of this memorable suit, young Penistone Cott rose to ask leave to withdraw from the case. lie thought that lie could better as sist both litigants to arrive at a friendly issue if he were allowed the oppor tunity to go into the witness-box and make a statement. In consideration of the fact that the jury had stopped the ease, Mr. Jus...
EXPERIENCE IMPERATIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 January 1914
EXPERIENCE IMPERATIVE. Jt requires the same treatment of good ludement and perseverance to succeed in the poultry business as it does -n otber lines of business. There are not any more adverse conditions to encounter than there are in otber lines. But about the first time a poultry-raiser encounters a really dis couraging thing, his enthusiasm suf ferj3 such a shock aB to make recovery doubtful. There Is not another busl ness that can bo mentioned the pro duct of which is in greater demand. Then, why should larse numbers of people who enter it continue to fail? The greatest reason Is because a great majority of those who take up poultry-raising do so without any pre vious knowledge of the business. The n*xt great reasou is because of the continued problems which cqnje up daily to be solved, and which, if not solved with good judgment, lead to positive disappointment and loss. Thirdly, because profit* do not roll in a.s faat as they had been led to be lieve they would by the extravag...
A DOUBTFUL BARGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 January 1914
A DOUBTFUL BARGAIN. The marriage ceremony as seen in America is often very quaint, accord ing to our staider ideas and traditions. In his "Wonder Book" the Reverend L. B. Bates, long associated with the East Boston Bethel. U.S.A., tells of nn amusing marriage ceremony perform ed iby his father:— About nine o'clock one night the old parsonage on Cape Cod was approach ed by n man and a woman in a "one horse shay." Hearing the wheels, Father Batps went to the door, to see coming up the walk a buxom lass of two hundred pounds or so, followed 'by a very little man. With a giggle she announced: "We've come to be married, par son, haven't we, Bill?''1 An energetic nudge succeeded in eliciting the desired affirmation from "Bill." The parson examined the li cense and proceeded to business. "Please join your right hands," he said. "Dearly beloved, you are gath ered here for the purpose of holy ma trimony. Do yoti " But he was here interrupted by the bride. "Say, parson, before you go any far ...
Avoiding Eye-Strain. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 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 UBe their eyes at long range. A teacher who has a surprisingly small amount of eye-strain among her pupilB attri butes it to her practice of majjng 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 see tho farthest. This rests and trains the eyes and teaches observa tion. A woman who does flue sewing for her living found her eyes strained and weak. She was advised to drop her sewing every half-hour and look for !• minute into space. Relief was quick, and the eye-strain disappeared. Short-sighted people who hold their book or work close will ease eye strain and lengthen their vision if they frequently remove their glasses rnd look at some object 011 the hori zon. The long-distance training will not, however, relieve eye-strain that comes from astigmatism, reckless dis regard of the eyes, or ...
Impure Air and Scrofula. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 January 1914
Impure Air and Scrofula. The atmosphere of all rooms should be frequently renewed by proper ven tilation. The beat method ot accom plishing this has been lor many years a subject closely studied by sanitar ians. In rooms, and especially in bed rooms, the fireplace should always be ieft unclosed. The windows should be pulled down from the top, and up from the bottom. All rooms, and es pecially sleeping apartments, should oe well aired during the day. Impure air in bedrooms is considerd by emin ent medical authorities to be one of the moBt potent causes of consumption and scrofula. A well-known French physician who has devoted much at tention to studies of this nature says: "It will often be found, on examina tion, that scrofulous diseases are caused by vitiated air, and it is not always necssary that there should have Jjeen a prolonged stay in such an atmosphere. Only a few hours cach day iB sufficient; and a person may live in a most healthy district, pass the greater part of each d...

CHAPTER XLII. An ante-room in the Law Courts. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 17 January 1914
CHAPTER X'LII. •An antc-room in the Law C«urts. 1 Lady Pettigew left the Court crush ed and overwhelmed with humiliation —a whole world of shame beating in upon her, beating her down to her very knees in hopeless, helpless agony. Her husband stood by her, mute of his own misery, affording her comfort by gentle words of sympathy and assurance of his love for her. Occasionally there came bursts of muttered misery from the poor brow beaten woman, interspersed with fran tic cries against the injustice of it all. Dainty worked herself into a frenzy against her dead parent, who had brought her up so abominably as to land her in a slander case. Then followed distraught imprecations against Sib stone, so fierce and so shrill that her poor honour-maimed husband had to place his hand gently over her mouth. She resisted and fought like a wild cat; Then as suddenly she turned upon him and accused him of standing up for An gela Burney—" for a thief," she cried hysterically, " I know she is a thi...
