SAYINGS OF A CHINESE PHILOSOPHER. Translated Into English. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 April 1914
SAYINGS OF A CHINESE PHILOSOPHER. Translated Into English. Remember that your ability Is rated In tlie world's clearing-house by the things you have accomplished, not by what you meant to do. No matter how skilfully you may have played your part in any ol the games o£ life, you are judged only by this test-"Did you win?" Remember, when someone seems to be much overjoyed at seeing.you after an absence, that it may be only the outbreaking of the pent-up pleasure he felt at your absence. No one really hates you if you are not doing much in the world, and If everyone is pleasant to you, you are not getting very far from the beaten path. Abstinence from talking to jne's self is the best way to see how absurd It seems in others. V.'bon ycu are poor you must prac tise abstinence an,1 exercise your body to exist: when you're rich you must practise tliem both to enjoy the things you may have. Foolishness is always talkative, Which may he the reason why you havf championed so many errors in t...

There was a foundation of wisdom underlying Mr. Mimwber's j dictum, that if n man has an income of twenty pounds n year, and spends nineteen pounds nineteen shillings and six pence, ho will be happy; whereas, l( lis expenses amount to twciit.v-ono founds, ho will lie miserable. It doaa lot take much in the way of urlthmoUo !o tell us that, 1C we spend more than l/o earn, we are on the high road to tuln.

THE LIVER. HOW TO TAKE CARE OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 April 1914
THE LIVER. HOW TO TAKE OAR.E OF IT. This little article ia intended to be a talk upon the liver, with some hintB upon the best n.eans rf keeping that important organ# in a healthy state. Tunny as it m«y seem, when the liver is all right you don't know tlmt you have got one. Bub as soon as it gets out of order it fails in the work which Nature intended it lo do, then there is very Berious trouble for you. Liverishness is also much more common than most people imagine. For instance, faulty action of the liver gives rise to feelings of depression, it makes a man feel miserable and unfit for woik, it gives a woman prostrating bilious attacks, headaches, and causes languor, sleeplessness, and sometimes a blurred state of the vision. Liverish ness is the enemy of cheerfulness, a kill-joy, a destroyer of mental efficiency and bodily vigor. If you doubt it look at the sallow skin, the dull eyes, and dragging step of tt:e man much given to liver troubles. Or think of the women, thousands of ...
INTERESTING APPLE EXPERIMENT. THE USE OF LIGATURES. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 April 1914
1NTKM5STINC. APPLE EXPERI MENT. THK USK Or LIGATURKS. A most interesting experiment ii i reported from Tasmania in regard to | apple-growing. Some trees of the Al friston variety appeared to be bent I on producing wood* instead of fruit. Ligatures were applied to the trunk? of five trees on January H. The ef fect was remarkable. The apples on the trees began to change colour /it once, until b\ the end of Kehruary they were nearly all yellow, and in splendid condition for export. The ligatures consisted of stout wires, lightly hound round. As soon af? the fruit, was gathered this was removed, and then the trees made nearly a foot of wood before the leave* fell in the autumn. Another change no ticeable was that the fralting bran ches made better development. Bunionti.--Paint them every second day with iodine till the Boreness dis appears. 1922.
SPEAK WELL OF YOUR FRIENDS WHILE LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 April 1914
SPEAK WELL OF YOUR FRIENDS WHILE LIVING. Go with niggardly words no longer For those who toil by .vour side, Waiting without commendation Till tho tired toilers havo died. Meet and greet them frankly; Encourngo them whilo they ore here, And see the face, sad and thoughtful, Break into a smile of cheer. Wait not till hope is banished, Till hearts from neglect have bled; Wait not till earth is dreary, "fill gloom gathers overhead. Wait not till feet, worn and weary, By the hand of Fate are led, Sad and mutely, despairing, Down into the rest of the dead. Then wait no longer-lifo passes, Its hours will soon have sped; Obeying your heart's kind prompting, Don't wait till your friends are dead.

VALUE OF RYE CORN. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 April 1914
VALUE OF RYE CORN'. The value of rye is most apparent after root crops have been a partial failure, and in such seasons a largp area of it is sown. It relieves the strain ot providing keep, and forms a connecting link be tweon winter and spring feed. It is very wholesome and not relasing to the bowels like rape greens.' It en courages milk in ewes and makes a pleasant chance for lambs, especially if they are allowql to run forward through creeps. It is also an eicel lent preparation for roots, aird is grown as a catch crop between them and the previous corn crop. After it .shoots into ear it ceases to be of value as sheep keep, but m iy he cut and carried to horses. It may even be left for seeding as a corn crop. Rye straw comes in very useful for thatching, and many farmers make a practice of sowing a small area every year in rye for the sako ot the straw.
THE DAIRY. HEAVY ROOT FEEDING. EFFECT ON THE MILK YIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 3 April 1914
THE 0 A IR V . + '7 HEAVY HOOT FEUDING. EFFECT ON THE MILK V1BU). An experiment was recently tried ! by Messrs. Lauder and Fagan at\ Edinburgh on the cITects of (ceding an extra quantity ol roots to milk cows with regard to the results on the milk yield. The quantity and quality of the milk were noted, and incidently a test was made how f :r turnips would replace the expensive food commonly used for feeding. The turnip ration was as follows per head daily Bean meal, 21b ; bran, 21b. ; turnips. J12rb. ; hay, 151b. ; having an albuminoid ratio of 1 tn II. The concentrated ration was : Bean meal, 21b. ; bran, 2!t>. ; peas meal, 41b. ; dried brewers' grains, 2fb. ; turnips, 40!b. ; hay, 1511;. ; hav ing a ratio of 1 to 7.S. Among the conclusions arrived at is that the richest milk was not obtained from the ration with the largest amount of digestible fat ; that, indeed, more fat was found in the milk than was fed in' the rations, and that therefore the digestible carbohydrates of the...
