Ask the next •friend:or acquaintance- you meet which is the greatest waterfall in the world, and he is almost certain to reply, without- the • slightest hesita tion;. "Niagara." . As a matter of fact, Niagara- does not hold the palm by any mems. The Victoria Falls in Central Africa, are •quite a'hundred feet higher than Nia gara.

LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 6 March 1914

LUCKRNE. Lucerne is talked of more tlmn evor now at our dairy meetings. It is a well Uptown fact that it furnishes the cheapest source of protein of nny roug.hago grown. One thing strongly emphasized by the exports is that it will not start under the ordinary conditions usually given other crops by farmers. Quite contrary to the prevalent opinion, it needs u rich, sweet, thoroughly cultivated, well drained soil1 at the beginning. When once started it has been found to bo one of the easiest crops to grow over touown. After a field is well sot it does, not require as much care, and as one farmer said at h recent moot ing, "the more you abuse it then. the hotter it doe®."— "Jcmy Bulle

THE FARM. WOHN-OUT GRAZING LANDS. The proper treatment of old' and worn-out grossing latid often appe'ar.-i to be a very serious and difficult problem to many farmers. It is, bow-. ever, one which may be readily solved. Old grass lands have became rich in nitrogenous matter, but have usually been depleted of much of • their mineral constituents, chiefly by the removal of potash aul phosphate to build up the bodies of the animals grazing on them. What then is Um chicf remedy for such old and im poverished grasslands, or for poor freshly-reclaimed lands naturally de ficient ? Simplj to apply the potash and pbosphato whoso deficiency pre vents the land from yielding good . crops •Sf hay or carrying a rich and • nutritious pasture..

And, remembering cer tain rebellions then flourishing in dif ferent parts of the world, ho quickly concluded that he had found the clue. He pushed hack his chair and rose to his feet. "Your offor is a little too tempt ing, too flowery, Senor Montojo," ho said, coldly. "I beg to decline it with thanks.. T doubt if the allure ments you hold out would compen sate me for a cell in some foreign prison, though you may not regard that as a shadow of poril or misfor tune—to quote your oyrn words."
