The Hint That Didn't. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
The Hint That Didn't. ' For ten Ions but blissful years they had walked along the path of love; but as yet the love-sick youth luid never mentioned about their getting married. Courtship is very charm ing, but wnen there does not seem to be altar rails at the end of it girls naturally begin to lose interest in thp game. Anyhow, Jane thought it tiinc tha'. the marriage day was lixed, so she threw out a gentle hint to lier lover by way of encouraging him. Encour agement, she thought, was all the dear fellow wanted. "Nathaniel," she whispered, coyly, "they're saying we're going to be married soon." "Are they, though?" answered the stolid swain. "What a joke it'll be 011 them when they find out we ain't." A couple of Jews were discussing the award of a railway company over an accident in which both of their wives had been sufTerers. "Vpt gouipensation did yer git, Ikey?" asked Mo' "1 got fifteen hundred quid." "Fifteen hundred quid! 'Vy, I only got five/" "Ah, yus. But you see, I !ad th...

S-l-r-r! [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
S-l-r-rl She was a plump widow with two charming daughters. She had been a "relict" just a year, and was begin ning to wear her "weeds" lightly. All the same, when the new curate called upon her, she sighed: "Ah! I feel the loss of my poor, dear husband very much. I never have any appetite for anything now." Tie curate was all sympathy, and, in the endeavor to cheer her fry point ing out what a comfort to her her daughters must be, replied: "I can quite understand that; but you are solaced in " "S-i-r-r!" interrupted the indignant lady. "Allow me to inform you that I am not laced in at all!" "I owe my success chiefly to obser vation, imagination and concentra tion. All my life I have cultivated these three faculties. I am always watching for new ideas wherever I go, and I get most of them when tra velling and at railway stations. When I am on the stage I do not merely act a part, I put myself inside it >by my imagination, and I am 'the saftest of the family,' or whatever it may b...
COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. Come now to the actor's everyday life. If you are a comedian you can't get any sympathy. Ever hear two men discussing the illness of a co median? Jones will say, "I hear Jack Cannot has appendicitis." "You don't say," grins Brown. And then they both burst out laughing. If an actor happens to be a tragedian it is the other way about. Every happy little episode in his life is referred to- with bated 'breath. "Did you hear about H. B. Irving winning a thousand at the ponies?" Smith 'will say. "Dear me," Robinson will reply; and they will look as if they had been asked to have a last look at the body before the lid is screwed down.—Fred Niblo on the disadvantages of being an ac tor, in "Theatre Magazine."
WORK THE SOIL NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
WORK THE SOIL NOW. AH orchard soils should be kept well worked during the summer mwiths. It is very essential that these skould have an aku*dant supply of moisture during the whole of the growing season. The transpiration from fruit and foliage is considerable at any time but during the hot and windy weather the amount of mois ture which is required by a tree, and which is ultimately transpired from the tree, is very exceptional. -Excessive transpiration is often the causc of loss of young trees and of now grafts. They are found t» part with a large amount of moisture, and are not able to retain or obtain suf ficient for their nourishment; they then very soon wither and die. The ioil r.round these should be kept well stirred, they should also he given a good straw mulch.
THE VALUE OF BEESWAX. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
THE VALUE OF BEESWAX. Beeswax is gradually going up in price. 'The bar-frame 6y6tem of keep ing bees has largely to answer for ihis. Under the old style, to obtain the honey, the com'bs were destroyed; that meant that there was always a certain quantity of wax to be placed on the market. Under the old regime, beekeepers never required the wax; but, under the new, nearly every grain is carefully husbanded, for the purpose of converting it into founda tion comb. As the new system of 'beekeeping extends the less wax there will be in proportion to put to com mercial use. Nevertheless, the de mand for wax Is steadily on the in crease. It, therefore, becomes the question: Will the production of wax pay? There are localities where the honey is of an inferior quality; in fact, almost unsaleable- at any price. Is it not worth while in those locali ties to try the experiment of wax pro duction? Bees can 'be compelled to produce more wax than tfoey need, and the supply of wax will always find ...
CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. How much is expected o£ little chil dren in the way of politeness when none is ever shown them. Their lit tle legs carry them on many an er rand for you and never a "Thank you, dear," for encouragement, when the poor little heart longs to hear it, lor it is so human in all o£ us to want approbation. Think of your little ones oftener, mothers. You are their all; they turn to you for their wants, and are often disappointed. Some children's souls and hearts are starv ed for want of kindness. Try what a little bribe will do instead of pun ishment; a slice of cake promised for more perseverance, or reward for ef forts to do better. A very small piece of money will make the heart of many a child joyful for a long time. Try to study their natures more. All chil dren cannot be managed alike any more than grown persons. And the present of a pet puppy or a bird—i will make a good child often, when punishment fails. Love the little ones more, they have their rights,...
DUCK FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
DUCK FARMING. The following pointers on ducks and duck-breeding should ibe observed:— There have 'been many failures in duck-farming, but the essence of the cause is in tne man. The thejry that poultry-raising fur nishes a nice occupation lor little boys and girls, old men and women, and in valids, has long since been exploded. There is no more continuous work of a light nature than poultry-farm ing, but you will get well repaid for your work. There is a good deal of money in poultry-raising, 'but it takes a 'big lift co get it out. A poultry-raiser will never suffer through want of exercise; it is a good medicine for health. Ducks waste rapidly when in tran sit, but their recuperative powers are equally wonderful. Free range is unnecessary for duck yards; 261t. x 10ft., well grassed, will carry 50 ducks. Duck-yards should toe laid out so that they can be cultivated. It is a double ibeuelit in healthier stock and better results, also rich crops. The habit of scalding ducks or any ot...
PREPARING THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
PREPARING THE LAND. Much has been heard during the last year or two as to the value of oxplo sivea for sub-soiling land intended to be planted with fruit trees and vines, and some authorities have made out, 011 paper, strong arguments in favor of their use. The lecturer in viticul ture and fruit culture at the Rose \vorthy College, South Australia, how ever, is doubtful if the work by such means can be performed as effective ly and economically as with teams and the ordinary implements used for the purpose. He considers that by adopting the usual method of sub soiling a more uniform layer of soil will be obtained to a depth rap gins from 18 to 24 inches, and the cost of such work may be put down at be tween £4 and £6 per acre. On the other hand, he reckons that to secure equally satisfactory results with ex plosives the cost will work out at £20 an acre. In a comprehensive article In "The Journal of Agriculture" Mr. Liaifer speaks highly of the English ditching plough, which is desi...
DIET FOR INDIGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
DIET FOR INDIGESTION. j No treatment in cases of dyspepsia is likely to have much effect unless the diet is very carefully regulated. The great thing is to Bupply the stom ach with such food as will give it the least amount of work. Roast meat, for example, is preferable to 'boiled; chicken, game (not too high) and mut tou are more digestible than beef or pork. Vegetables are frequently pi"o ductive of discomfort, particularly in the form .of flatulence. They should either be'given up for a time, or taken very sparingly. It will sometimes be found that a fresh salad, dressed with oil and a little vinegar, can be digest ed when cooked vegetables cannot be taken. The latter are best served as a puree. If vegetables have to be given up, fruits, such as baked ap ples, grapes, and oranges should be taken instead. Lemon juice also may be used in water. Bread should be toasted, or taken stale. Pastry, cakes, twice cooked meat, soups, tea and cof fee (except in the strictest modera tion) sh...
THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. Farmer's wives and daughters often wonder why their homes do not look, as attractive as those of their sisters in town. They say they work twice as hard, and do not have half the chance to have a good time. One very simple thing adds much to the attrac tiveness of the farm home, and that is the presence of flowers. There is no one who can better af ford to have pretty flowers than the farmer's wife, for she has plenty of land and fertiliser. There are so many pretty hardy plants and shrubs that require little work and that when once started will bloom every season for a long time. There are also many annual varieties that will furnish cut flowers for the interior of the house, such as sweet peas, nasturtian, pinks, phlox and asters—my favorites. It is a pleasure to give away flowers to the sick, to carry them to the altar of the little church, and, in fact, it seems as if thoy are never out of place. There is on class of people who can have.as good a time w...
NEWSPAPER KINGS. Men Who Fashion History. Struggle for Supremacy. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
NEWSPAPER KINGS. Men Who Fashion History* Struggle for Supremacy. I Alfred Harmswo.-th (now Lord Northcliffe), who first devised per sonal journalism In tabloid form through the medium of "Answers," is, j after 2G years, the most influential : private public man in the three King- i doms. Some people are apt to bolt with the idea that success commands success, and that once a man has arrived he can sit down serenely and lortune comes to him cap in hand. I happen to know that there is no harder worked man in England than Lord Northcliffe. Like the aged Em peror of Austria, he is dressed at 5 a.m., and ready to digest every paper that is printed in London and the provinces. Before a majority of his assistants in the many offices which he commands have had their break fast he calls them lip on the telephone to discuss with tlieni what shall be the best story for the following day. "He is a hard taskmaster, but the most stimulating man I know," 0110 ol his young lions told mo recently. ...
GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. The dairy cow is one of the best I solutions for the problem of the high cost of living. She not only furnishes cheap, wholesome, and nourishing foods, in the products of the dairy, but the manure, if saved and properly used on the land, will accelerate larger crops and more pro fits per acre. But we must have good herds. Probably in no other industry, con nected with the soil is there more ne nessity for a complete reorganisation of the methods of working than in dairying. Although we have an in comparable climate for dairying the business is unsound at its base through the use of any kind of ani- ' mal in the shape of a cow. No sane 1 man would think of sowing the same , kind of seed for a grain crop year after year when he found by practi seed was lesB than one-half what it cal test that the yield from that seed was less than one-half wliat it Bhould be. Yet men will go on milk ing and rearing calves for future use from cows which do not actually pay for the...
MANURES FOR WHEAT. ALL THE PROFITS. HOW TO GET THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
MANURES FOR WHEAT. ALL THE PROFITS. HOW TO GET THEM. By A. H. Renard. Expert in Modern Agriculture. : Author 01 "A.B.C. ot Rational Manitr • ing" and "A.B.C. ot Scientific Stock Feeding." Every farmer is interested in get ting the largest income in the year and in getting it with the minimum of worry and anxiety. To make money it is necessary to spend money, as every farmer knows. Something oi ] value cannot bo got for nothing in these modern times. Every farmer lias certain unavoidable expenses to meet—cost o£ seed, fallowing, inter est 011 value of land, living expenses, cost.of labor, etc.—and he has to get his return from a limited area of laud within a limited time. Let him com mit to memory the following axioms of successful manuring of wheat and work in close accord with their teach ings; then everything will go right with him. Wheat Manuring Axioms. 1. Citrate soluble phosphate is the only natural form of soluble and available phosphoric acid. , 2. Phosphoric acid extracted ...
THE LAUGH CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
THE LAUGH CURE. By Philip Gibbs. There have been many notable events recorded in the newspapers during recent weeks—railway disas ters, strikes, political sensations—-but there was one incident which attract ed only a brief notice, although it con tained the secret which all the philos ophers of life have been searching for since the beginning of time—the se cret of happiness. It took place in a police court—of all places in the world—and the se cret was revealed by a young coster monger charged with the theft of a wheelbarrow. This young man did not say a sjngle word in self-defence, but he had a smile which seemed to pierce the gloomy atmosphere of the court like a sudden burst of euii Fhine. lie clnickkd whimsically when evidence was given against him. jie laughed, with a joyous, unaffected laugh, at the very mention of the wheelbarrow. He was enormously amused by the misfortune which had bei- 'len him, and he was prepared to take any punishment that might be given to him with a ...

The first morning he forgot to wash the boiler out after breakfast, consequent ly there were tea-leaves on the sur face of the soup when dinner was served.
