CEREAL GROWING. CHANGE OF SEED. [Newspaper Article] — Ultima and Chillingollah Star — 20 March 1914
CEREAL GROWING. CHANGE OF SEED. A belief commonly Iheld among cereal growers is that change of seed is more or'less necessary every two or three years. It ^ would appear, however, that this belief is founded on opinion rather than on well-ascertained fact. In Canada decided results have been obtained at. the Ontario Agricultural College. A number of varieties of oats, barley, wheat and potatoes have been grown in the experimental grounds from 18 to 21 yeais without a change of seed from outside sources. In practically all cases the yields per acre in recent years have been greater than those during the earlier part of the experiment. Taking an average, it is found that the yields have in creased to a remarkable degree. The soil on which these varieties have been grown has changed but little in fertility in the period under review. It therefore seems possible to grow the same varieties for a considerable length of time without change of seed, providing care is taken in the selection ...

A MAN WHO DISAPPEARED. [Newspaper Article] — Ultima and Chillingollah Star — 27 March 1914
A MAN WHO DISAPPEARED. —h Some years ago (writes Mr. James Payn in "Gleams of Memory") the clothes of a Scottish merchant of high repute were found on the shore of the 'Forth, and it was concluded that he was drbwned. He was very popular, and his family^ who were much attached to him, were greatly sympathised with; and the more so since they were left far worse pro vided for than had been supposed. He had, however, insured his life for a very large amount, which secured them competence. By help of this money and his own exertions, the eldest son in course of time amass* ed a large fortune. Many year? afterwards two xof the judges were walking "acro6S the North Bridge in Edinburgh when they were accosted by a beggar. Ono of them gavf him something, and excused himself to the other for such injudicious charity on the ground "that the 0ltf iellow was so like poor P." K'My dear friend./* said the other gravely, "I never forget a face. That was P. himself." And so it turned out. P. had p...

THE RACCOON OF NORTH AMERICA. "'Teach'ng Young Coons How to Catch and Bat Crawfish" is the title of an articlc in an American paper. Says the writer:—"I saw the coun terpart of a boy's school one day in the woods of Illinois. I was sitting quietly on a log near a creek whet there came prancing down a little path an old mother raccoon with five young ones. The little fellows were about as large as half-grown cats, and were as full of fun as that mythical basket of monkeys we read about. "Jf ever there was a hard-worked teacher it was that poor mother coon. She tried to tench the little imps how to catch crawfish and how to eat thera. When the old lady (she was a very ladylike old coon) got the little fellows in line at the water's edge she sedately walked to a rock and gravely readied down in a hole and brought out a crawfish. She then proceeded to wash it. but just as she was about to cat it one little coon broke ranks and stole the crawfish. "This started a row, and all the little ...

SNAKES IN POLLOKSHIELDS. It was Norrie wh» made the dis covery, but the credit of seeing the amazing significance ol it belonged to Bull, the bigger boy. By means of the kitchcn steps, in broad daylight, armed with pistols and bull's-eye lantern, they had climbed to the roof of an outhouse, and, entering by a skylight, they had rescued three com panions from the .secret chamber in which they had been imprisoned by pirates. The leader was in a par ticularly vlariag mood, because he had shortly before evaded the brunt of a maternal beating, by hurriedly armour-plating the likely part with the discarded telephone directory ba* fore comiug downstairs Jar the drub bing.
