BUYING NEW IMPLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
BUYING NEW IMPLEMENTS. In buying new implements or ma chines, every man will be guided by his own experience or fancy. We find one man swearing by a certain make of machine, and the next neighbor by another make, both claiming that their i machine is best, and maybe it is, ac cording to conditions and usage. In considering the various points in .fa vor of any machine, one should always take into account the accessibility of each part. One has often spent an hour or more in trying to get at some part needing repair while the actual job has only taken 10 minutes to uo. A Scottish farmer recently paid a visit to a South of England cattle show, and while walking around got talking with a native farmer. Neither could well understand what the other said. The Scotsman got a little net tled at this, and put it down to the Englishman's stupidity. "Mail," he said at last, "yer cowb IilOU it* rlgllt, uml ycr cooks - oraw quite plain, but I'm lnfiiged if I cau mak* you oot."
INSIST UPON BETTER ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 25 April 1914
INSIST UPON BETTER ROADS. Better roads are essentia! to better living as well to the farmer's com fort and convenience. They are essen tial to the reasonable pleasure of his family. Good roads mark the stand ing of every community. The greatest objection to living in the country is the difficulty of getting about. You must get aibout if you properly market your crops, iE you are to keep your machinery in order, if you send your children to school, if you go to church or attend meet ings. These are not little fllings. They are matters of vital importance. Dad roads impose the heaviest tax on a farmer that lie pays, and he is cer tain to pay for it, whether he knows it or not. He pays it in the wear and tear of all. his vehicles, lie pays it in the additional labor imposed upon his stock. He pays through the labor or self-denial of his family. .Therefore, work for better roads as jou -would work-to put out » firo in your barn.

"Aleaning Nancy O'Brien," put in Tom Wood, meaningly; "well, they're all alike, are the lasses, an' she's a partic'ler neat little party, is Nancy; it's haraly to be wondered at that she thinks a lot ol' herself, an' doesn't jump into a man's arms." "Well, in course, if she wasn't ' something a bit out of the common I ' shouldn't be wanting to throw my self away upon her, should I?" said Brace, in a tone denoting more than ! a touch of indignation.

OLD POETS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
OLD POETS. - If I should live in a forest And sleep underneath a tree, No grove of whispering saplings Would make a home for me. I'd go where the old oalcs gather, Serene and cood and strong, And they would not sigh and trem' le And vex me with a song. The pleasantest sort of poet Is the poet who's old and wise, With an old white beard, and wrinkles About his kind old eyes. For these young flibbertigibbets A-rhyming their hours away, They won't be still like honest men And listen to what you say. The young poet sireams forever About his sex and his soul, But the old man listens and smokes his pipe And polishes its bowli I There should be a club for poets Who have come to seventy year. They should sit in a great hall, drink ing. Red wine and golden beer. They would shuffle in of an evening, Each one to his cushioned seat, And there would be mellow talking And silence rich and sweet. There is no peace to be taken With poets who are young. For they worry about the wars to be fought And...

A GREAT ENGINEERING WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 2 May 1914
A GREAT ENGINEERING WORK. The completion of the Los Angeles aqueduct, says the '"Scientific Ameri can," marks the successful ending of an arduous struggle with nature in its most rugged aspects of mountain 'and desert, and with powerful and subtle private interests for the pos session of a priceless supply of water. The ten aqueducts of ancient Rome were marvels of engineering skill and durability; but their construction stretched over a period of five cen turies, against the eight years that have elapsed since the Los Angeles aqueduct was first proposed, and the length and dimensions of the ancient Roman aqueducts bear no comparison with that of modern Los Angeles. The longest of the Roman aqueducts was 62 miles, while the Los Angeles aque duct is 254 miles in length, from the fntake on Owens River to the city limits of Los Angeles. The irrigation aqueducts of the Inca Indians ol' an cient I'eru, one of which was 360 miles long, are among the wonders of the world, especially so whe...
