THE MAKER OF SABOTS AN IDYLL OF THE FOREST. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
THE MAKER OF SABOTS AN 1PYL.L. OF TIIB FOREST. (T3y M. P. Willcocks, in "Dally Nows and Leader.") Seen from afar, this Breton beoch wood Is just a blue mist on tho horizon. Hut within it the stillness is so deep that no twig can fall or undergrowth rustle without being noted. With thoao sounds comes the sense of an abiding presence, as of one who moves about hij own house. In summer the ponds re flect the green world that surrounds them, and across tho long white roads, where the branches almost meet over head, blows tho woodland smell, damp and fresh with the breath of air and moss. "Lord of tho Seven Forests" was an ancient title of the noblesso when almost all the Breton land was forest, the temple of strange worships, each spring therein a haunt of goat footed dwarfs. Now, through the tunnel of the trees, there shines tills winter day the open sky and beyond it, more mist of wood land. A silver birch "waves its few pale leaves in air. There is the scent of cleft wood from the he...

New Tear's Day in tho Swiss moun . tain resorts is (says a special corres pondent of "The Daily News and Lead . tu\" •writing from Pontresina), ono of glorious sunshine and intense frost. Better conditions for tho skaters who have gathered hero from nil the corners of Europe have never been known; but the skl-ers are still looking £or more snow. Yesterday there were a few grey clouds that gave them hope, but the snow suddenly changed its fickle mind, and ahis morning tho region of white above the Engadinc Valley was defined in gold and blue by a resplen dent sunrise. there is no wind, except that report ed by skl-ers in the hotel smoking room, who have laboriously climbed all day to tho snowflelds to find if, and then sailed down to tea in minutes to tell us of "wind up thero like sharp knives." On the lower slopes tho air is In completo repose—which is fortunate, for the thermometer shows an astonish ing degree of cold, which, howover, we d...

WHEN STORING APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
WHEN STORING APPLES. AppleB for keeping must not be bruised nor the skin broken, there fore certain precautions are necessary in the picking. A common mistake is | to pull the stem off the fruit, which leaves a hole in the skin at that point and allows the germs of decay to enter; another is to pluck the fruit in such a way' that the stem bruises it; a twist and an. upward movement should he given, which will generally detach the stem from the fruit spur- ■without damaging either the tree or the fruit, Careless tpickers sometimes break off the spurs, and so reduoe next season's crop. The fruit should not be thrown but placed in the basket, and any that falls on the ground should tie set 'aside for Immedlate UBe. There is no better way of storing apples than to spread them in single layers on a shelf in a dry shod, eel la r, or spare room.
WHAT FRUIT TREES REQUIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
WHAT FRUIT TREE8 REQUIRE. The most essential elements for tlie production of -fruit are nitrogen, ; potash, phosphoric acid and lime. Ni trogen encourages leaf and wood growth, which are essential to the development of the tree and to the , production of tlie 'hest quality of fruit. Potash, an essential constituent in the growth of fruits, constitutes a large proportion af the ash of the Wood and more than 60 per cent', of the ash of the fruit, and is also as sociated with the development of fla vor in the fruit. Phosphoric acid is essential to the development of the tree; lime is not Jn itself an essen tial element, but assists dn liberating •plant food. On a soil deficient in lime, growth often continues so late that the wood does not mature nor the fruit ripen properly.. .
A DAIRY FARMER DROPS INTO POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
A DAIRY FARMER DR0P8 INTO POETRY. A dairy farmer embodies his faith, as well as his words, In the following expressive poem, 'which lie has huhg In his stable to be known and read by all who visit his tidy premises:— I haven't much faith In the man-who complains Of the work he has chosen, to do, He's lazy, or else he's deficient In brains, And, maybe, a hypocrite, too. He's likely to cheat, and he's likely to rob; Away with the man who finds fault 'wj th his job. But give me the man with the suu in his face And the shadows all dancing he hind; Who can meet hiB reverses with calm. ness and grace, . And never lorget to be kind. . For, whether he's wielding a sceptre or swaib, I have faith*in the man who's In love with his job.

SELF-SACRIFICE A VICE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
SELF-SACRIFICE A VICE. How far is It rlgh,t to carry the vir tue of self-Bacrifice. Many women set no limits to It, and try to secure a monopoly of this particular virtue, heedless of other people's chances to practise It a little on their own ac count. We all know the mother who never allows her daughters to help in household matters because she wishes them to have a "good time," and up to a certain point Bhe is to he admired. It Is only right that young people should have a certain aimouQt of recreation and amusement: ibut, un less they are to develop grit and hack bone, to say nothing of an unselfish spirit, they must not have life made too easy for them. The world'a great men and women have not come from, the'wealthy, leisured classes—far from It. TUey have sprung from those who knew how to "toil terribly," who have had hard times in their youth, and have thereby developed character. Mothers who sacrifice themselves In order to give the girls and hoys tbis | good time are really...
THE CAPTAIN EXPLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
THE CAPTAiN EXPLAIN8. An old sea, captain, who wooed and won h is wife In a very brief courtship, Is wont to describe, with deep-chested chuckles, the plight from which he rescued her'at tholr first meeting. It was In the early, days of the crinoline, and the .girl, dressed in her best, hod come down the wharf to meet her father, also a captain, -whose Vessel had been sighted at the mouth of the harbor. The .wind was strong, and she soon found herself In difficulties. "First I ever saw o' my wife," says the captain, "she waB a gal—a fine, able, saucy-looking craft, sail set an' scudding before the wind straight for the end o' Tlmmin's Wharf, sending up distress signals as sho wont.

' " Condition of Breeding Sow. Plus to breed well should not be too fat. It 1b the aim o£ successful breeders of swine to keep their ani mals in a medium condition, neither too fat nor too thin.

THE VALUE OF INSECT STUDY. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
THE VALUE OF INSECT STUDY. * By becoming acquainted with the habits of Insects antf methods of their control, the faryier and fruit-grower will be able to Bave iho greater part of the thousands of pounds sterling that are lost every year through their presence, and by wl»e legislation to make sucl\ laws In regard to the de struction of the pests, or the preser vation of the useful inBecta, as ■will be to the best Intov-oats of not only the present, but the future genera tion. The importance of recognising our friends among the Insects should hot ibe lost sight of, as some Insects are very beneficial in Keeping In check others of an Injurious nature.
SMALL ORCHARDS [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
SMALL ORCHARDS Fruitgrowing Is becoming more and : more of a science nowadays, and In ■ tensive cultivation 'is an Indispensable adjunct to scientific treatment. With the great rambling orchards of old days there was little ,'or no attempt | made at real fruitgrowing'■ on sound principles, and the consequence waB that heavy losses were, In time, sus tained through the ravages o£ dis ease and the Invasion o£ insects. No orchardist who sets himself to meet the requirements of m the mnrket can afford to submit any but good qual ity stuff, and, unless he be &lt;■. mil lionaire—in which case he would be rearing his orchard for pleasure, not : profit—he cannot provide the labor and skill necessary for the cultiva tion of large areas, wherefore, thiB is the day of . small orchards.
LIGHTNING CURES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
LIGHTNING CURE8. There is nn old saying to the effect thai "faith will either kill or cure," and It would aem to apply to lightning also. Certainly It is a romedy which nobody could be persuaded to try vol untarily, but there are many cases on rccord where permanent benefit has iboen derived from being struck toy lightning—that is, subjected to Na ture's own electrical treatment. A telegraph employe In Germany who was .manipulating his instruments during a severe thunderstorm was seen to fall at the very instant tliat a lightning flash of Intense vividness oc curred. At first he was thought to have been killed instantly, but it was afterwards found that he was still alive, although he was both senseless and paralysed. In this state he re mained about twenty-four hours, and then recovered completely. Strangely enough, prior to the lightning stroke he was In very Indifferent health, but since that apparent catastrophe his health had been more robust than ever before in his life. A sim...
HAM AND BACON CURING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
HAM AND BAC.ON CURING. 'A pig thnt Is to be killed should be kept without food for 12 or 1G hours. Every effort should bo made to get every drop of blood out of tlie body, otherwise the cnrcase will not cure so well. The pig is then inrmersed .11 nearly boiling water. !The proper tempera ture of the water Is very Important. If cither too hot or too cold the liitir will not come off freely. A good old fashioned plan to try the temperature is to let a few drops of the pig's blooil drop into tho water; 'if it spreads all over the surface the temperature la right. Leave tlie pig In the water until the hair comes off freely. Pigs are not easily lifted out of tho water, especially when liot, and it la a good plan to erect a block overhead, so as to facilitate this operation. Tho pig should now be Vigorously scraped with a blunt Instrument. There Is nothing "better for the purpose than the lid of an old billy. When the hair is all removed, the skin should be well-dried. The internals are r...
HAPHAZARD POULTRY BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
HAPHAZARD POULTRY fl.R^Dsl^. The haphazard method of breed ing Is still In vogue on many farms. The eggs selected tar hatching are choBen because they ave at good size, shape aurt co>or, irrespective of whether they are laid by the best or worst layers. In the present stato of farming one cannot nffar3 to adopt loo3e ' methods. If the farmer gave as m\\ch thought to poultry, breeding as he does to his farm crop he \vould invariably find h;ls ptiHota great pro-. ftt-makers. Qt\ many larms the chick ens are reared for the sake of the pullets; cockerels are a secondary consideration, although usually equal to the pullets aB regards numbers, The farmer want? eggf—plenty of them—and &lt;\yhen eggs are dearest. He must hatch so that the pullets lay right through the winter: they can afford to have a rent In summer and will oome again In autumn, a time of higher prices.' Now, wo cannot ob tain all of these advantages by hatch ing haphazard and .from a flock of mongrels. The farm...
ADVANTAGES OF A LIFE PLAN [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
ADVANTAGES OF A LIFE PLAN It pays to have a life^-plan. Such a plan unifies our life; it organises our days; it ibinds our hourB together in one harmonious whole; it gives meaning, value and direction to out lives. No man is apt to arrive or to achieve success unless he has a fair ly distinct notion of where he wishes to go and what he wants to do. There are some meaningless people whom you could accurately call hu man derelicts. They drift, and, like everything else that drifts, they drift down stream. There is a very great' difference between the men who wait and see what will happen- and men who make things happen in such a way that they will contribute to the lealisation of their life plan. The first kind ot man ds a failure; a miserable failure. The second kind of man is a suc cess; a splendid success. The one differentiating thing between an ig noble and a noble life is the having a purpose, pursuing an ideal, journey ing towards a goal. The man who regulates his life by momen...
PRODUCTION OF FAT LAMBS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
PRODUCTION OF FAT LAMBS. In the production of tat lambs it gener, y follows that the larger the proponion of Lhe blooil of the Eng lish breeds in the sire and dam, when bred upon suitablo Hnes, the better from a mutton point of view and the worse from a standpoint of wool. The reverse Is the case when there is a preponderance of well-bred merino blood; there is a faJlling-off in the size of carcase and early maturing characteristics, and a corresponding increase In the character and quan tity of wool, A judicious combination of theee desirable characteristics should be aimed at, with various modifications to 'be decided by the farmer after gauging the possibilities of his coun try. This desirable combination should not be neglected In the breed ing of ewes. As regards their progeny, early maturity and quality of carcase are of greater importance, especially when the conditions invariably allow of their disposal as sucking lambs. When the conditions are not so stable and the progeny ...

RE-WORKING OLD FRUIT TREES. The latter part of January is tho best time to bud to better varletlea all poor or worthless varieties of fruit trees found growing in tho orchard. Be sure that the buds to "be used are taken from trees 'which have borne fruit of the very beat quality. Insert them on tho outer or underneath side of the limbs, where it will be found that the bark usually raises more easily than on the upper side, and where they are more apt to form a weltajiapen tree than -where the buds have been inserted on the uppey or inner side of such iimb§,
SUMMER PRUNING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 7 March 1914
SUMMER PRUNING. Wherever young apple, pear, or apricot trees are found to have too •much growth throughout the centre of the trees they should be thinned out, cutting back the superfluous growth to within about 3in. of the main limbs or spurs, from which I they spring. This will open up the tree so' as to admit light and air, •which are both necessary for the pro per development and ripening of wood, as well as assisting the tree, in its efforts to develop fruit spurs.
