FOOD SUPPLY SAFE IN WAI AJi the fascinating detuils of that big project, the tunnel between Eng land nnd France, hnvc been given to a meeting of the Frnnco-Britlah Travel Congress. The cost of the channel was estimated at £16,000, 000 by Baron Emll d'Erlanger. The English and French companies would each contribute one half of this sum and cach would build twelve miles of the tunnel, the Baron explained. From the entrance at Dover the tunnel would dip under the Channel for a length ut twenty-four miles, emerging «t Sandgate, near Calais. A large power station would pro vide motive power for the trains, «k well as electricity for lighting, and compressed air for the purpose of ventilation.

HOW TO MAKE A FLY-TRAP. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 April 1914

HOW TO MAKE A FLY-TRAP. An ingenious dairyman has con structed a home-made fly-trap which he has found cfiectivc in ridding his place of business of the pests. The trip is made from a box lift. lone, lft. high, and 1ft. '.vide, both the sides nnd the top being sawn out and covered with wire netting. The box is then raised about a foot from the floor, and the neck of a large ftitinel is run up through the bottom of the box arid adjusted tight, so that the mouth of the funnel is about, an in"h from the floor. A sriucer of molasses or something sweet to draw the. fli»^ is set under the mouth of the fu**n 1. leaving room for the flics to go tn» the funnel and into the box. A . soon as the box is filled the flies arc drowned, and the process repeated. "Now this," said the barber, hold ing up a pink bottle, "is a splendid thing for baldness." " Thank you," replied his victim coldly. "I have all the baldness I re quire."

REGISTRATION OF GRADE COWS. AN ASSOCIATION WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 April 1914

ItKUIri'l'ltATION OF C.KADR COWS. AN ASSOCIATION WANTKD. I There is an opportunity (remarks I "Hoard's Dairyman") to establish 1 registries for gr.ule stock (.f the dif i fcrent breods where records arc re quired before animals are admitted to registration. For instance, a grade cow five years or more that has pro duced /3601b. of fat would be eligible to registration, but her progeny could not be registered until it had . made the required amount oi fat. If this sort of n registry were estnb i lislied it would mean the elimination of all poor producing animal* and ' would in time producc an exceptional j dairy bre«d, for it would ouly he a i matter of time when all inferior ani ? mals would be eliminated. | An association for the above pur j pose would he of immense benefit, to i the dairying industry, and would in j no way be antagonistic to the good 1 work the special hreed associations | arc doing.

TWELVE MONTHS' IMPRISONMENT FOR CONTEMPT OF COURT. There are many ways to comfort the unfortunate. One of the most original of them is recorded by Sir David Dun das, once a circuit Judge of Kii^iaud In the earlier half of las.t century, in many of the rural districts, there was but one session of the court during the year, and it consequently became the judge's duty to 'make a'clcau sweon of the prisoners' cases before a sua sion ended. Sir David had just finished a session at Scarborough,'and tlie .court was about to be closed when the gaoiet approached. "What, your honor," said he, "is tr. be done with the man who creaic-d v. disturbance in court last year? Your honor will reco'lect that you commu ted him for contempt." "Good heavens!" exclaimed Sir r>;i vid, who had, of course, only cuw ted the prisoner for the day. "l-Uio the man been confined for a year? Ho lease him at ouce." The gaoler performed his mission, and then the judge anxiously inquirvi! what the mun d said. "Well...
