S. NEW WIRELESS: WONDERS. S . The "'wireless- compass" or direction - finder, marks.almost as great a step : forward in: the new. era of; navigation as the discovery of the ordinary com pass. did in the old. 'An official at Marconi House stated recently that there .were two ways in whloh the new invention would be of great.use. Sup posing that a cargo ship had, broken - down and was adrift in mid-ocean. If, owing to cloudy, or foggy weather, sun, moon, and stars had not been visible. for two or three days,. the captain would not know exactly where he was. . He could. not tell by wireless to- any would-be rescuer precisely in whiol S direction to steam. 'But if a- ship fitted with a direction finder came along then she would be able to find out where the vessel in distress was ,in .relation to herself, and so be able to Srace to the rescue, so long as she.. re ceived signals.

BEEF AND BUTTERFAT. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 21 April 1914
Bii EE AND8F- D BU ERFA :- Probably nothing, says a well-kdnown agricultural writer, would induce the gra.e;- er of fattenuig cattle to transfer .ss attention to dairying, but the pro .. duotive "capaoity of a well-selected cow S is much greater than that of a well bred& steer, and more can be made off grass' by combining the two.- The aver agerda?Try cowproduces about 500 gal : lonis of milk annually, yielding 12½ per enite- or. 62.51b of -fat,. sugar, : oasemi, a::.: nd'hsh, pjractically all of which is di gestible.

FEEDING DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Star — 24 April 1914
FEEDING DAIRY COWS. The English Field says :-The inc?e?~s ed prominence that is given to the qjes tion of feeding dairy cows is indiotwve of the growing importance of dairy farm. ing and,of the closer attentioni that ie devoted to economy in production.\ The experiments carried out at the agricul tural colleges, and partioularly at the Armstrong, the Wye, and the . i.per Adams Colleges, havei ntensified, if they did not actually originate, the wider interest that is now manifested in -this subject. It is evident that the teaching .f.the college experimileeits has not been ig nored north-of the Tweed. The Scot tish farmer is no exception in that he does not change his methods quickly or without a prospect of resulting benefit; but like his,neighbors in the South, .he is eager -to discover a means C econo mising expenditure and augusnonting income. While he does not put aside the plans evolved from long.exper:ence, .under the peculiar conditions of hit holding, he is ever on the look-...

D, ress ant Fashion.:., i-7 (By. Ambrosine.")' For Wiholo costumo suits you will be surprised to. see-how, the 'ittle boleri coat is c~reping' back-to fashion. But instead:of rit being "out off jus-' at;tlie riist it is corered with a wide 'dra?pe sash, and below it on the skirt comes what we call either a peplum or tuhio. If you- wear the skirt indoois with a blbuse -the. sash still' does'duty in-pull inlgthe costume together. There'is no doibt that these little boleros can be made smart, and .for certain funcotioins made up in glace silks they will be im mensely. popular, for you can'so easily wheri drivizig wear-some form of wrap whichl covers the edtire costume, and w1Cn1 Iceeps you warm and Iree or dust'-,' BBfit I think the bolero requires a.slin, girlish figure; you must be slight everyiihere to wear so trying a garment. .You get no help from it below the waist. -The figure is cut in twain.

A EASTER SERMON. By PAST R11U EIJL. Text: "Thou -hast pscended .on higli thou bhast led captivity captiye; ethou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the ebel lious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them." (Psalm lxviii., 18.) Pastor Russell declared that :one of the serious.errors engrafted into the Christian faithis- the supposition that Jesus is still a man in heaven. He declaredthat this thought has helped to turn away },any from the faithin~the premillennial return of Christ and the establishment of his kingdom? for blessing the world, as the Bible declares. Many ;Christians perceive that a localised reign:of Christ in: the flesli would be far inferior to a spiritual reign, and hence the general rejection ofjall faith in the second coming of Christ "and his millennial kingdom. Hepointed out that most Christiaae firmlyl; believe that Jesus avas a spiritbe-. ing hefor %=e ;was "made flesh, .andRyvelt among us." All believe also that a spirit being is of a higher order th...
