A GIRL BRIGAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 April 1914
A GIRL BRIGAND. There have been women who, dis guised in male attire, have served a? soldiers and sailors, hut a girl brigand is probably unique; in the annals o> feminine enterprise. The home of this female bandit was* Rcumania, and she made no attempl to disguise her sex. She is described as having been a perfoct rider, an excel lent shot, of considerable beauty, and utterly fearless and unscrupulous. She was the leader of a company of brigands whom she accompanied on all their expedition-1!. Houses were at tacked at night, sacked mid pillaged, and the inhabitants murdered if they showed fight. ' Before her career came to an In glorious end, she was credited with eighty-six murders and hundreds ol crimes of violence and theft. A certain lawyer who practised in Brougham's time had a habit of com mencing his cross-examination of a witness with these words: "Now, sir, I am going to put a ques tion to you, and I doii.'t care which way you answer it." This eternal formula annoyed Br...

CHAPTER XVII[. THE RETRKAT FROM 'i'HK YACHT. The devastating oflcct, of tho plr ato's two shots was correctly gauged by^ Captain Gore on the Instant that i ho.saw them strike, and knowing that the man-of-war's progress was chocked, ho acted .'with his usual promptness and decision. Hastening to the bridge,"bctrang his uboj 1 hard, and shouted a couple of orders. The steam was shut oil, and the ridges of foam fell away from the how, the King of Troj lay gracefully and at ease on the swell.' By this time the man-of-war was lnylng-to, and it was apparent to all that she was out of action and badly crippled. The tumult that then burst from end to end of the cruiser's dock was droudful. Frantic with savage exultation, the horde of pirate ruffians screeched nnd clam oured until they were hoarse. From tho bridge, with n fiendish smite on his face, Captain Gore looked down upon his motlej crew. And to Dick, as he listened to the din and gazed out over./the, water, the moment was a black nnd...
FAILURES ARE WORTH STUDYING. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 April 1914
FAILURES ARE WORTH STUDYING. Tl have often thought," remarked an old commercial man, "that too much attention Is given to successes and not sufficient to failures. '!I do not mean that wr flight to brood over our failures, r exhibit them for the inspection o' .ihers; but It certainly seems to me liai If a man studies the causes why he or other men have failed in anything they set out to do, many a useful lesson can be learned. "Most successM men are willing to give explanation, of their success in this life. Ff-" if any of them are ever tempted to dwell upon the little slips and blunders that they, like the rert of the world, must have made on the road to success. Yet such a record would be Invaluable to young aspir ant!. "It would not only teach them how to avoid failures, but would console them by showing how others failed before them, for the career of success ful men has seldom been an unbroken succession ot triumphs."

A QUESTION IN MEDICAL ETIQUETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 April 1914
A QUESTION IN MEDICAL ETIQUETTE. How far a Imowledge ot a patient's actual condition should be communica ted to him by his medical attendant is one of many questions of medical eti quette dealt with by Doctor James in an address delivered at the Meath Hospital and County Dnblin Infirm ary. "In many instances," said Doctor Craig, "it is right to take a patient entirely into your confidence. In some cases, however, It would be most in jurious for his future well-being that his actual physical condition should be explained to him; but this much I can say-that where a practitioner has no doubt in his own mind as to the serious nature of an illneBs he should be perfectly candid with the friends ot the patient, and thereby obviate any reflections that might possibly be cast upon him at a later period."

All the dressings used gave a profit when the increase in tlie crop was valued at 12/ per ton.

NATIVES OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 April 1914
NATIVES ->F AUSTRALIA. The following is a tale that used to be told In the early days: - When quite a pill, old Mrs. McCar thy's daughter took an opportunity and emigrated to Australia. Years passed by, but although in licr. let ters Matilda never referred to >he probability or her return to the land which gave her birth, still liio old lady cherished the idea, that she wo\.l&lt;! some day co~io back. This belief received a somewhat rude - shock when, a few weeks aso, Matilda announced iu her lc-tier that she was about to be married to a native of hei adopted country. It was a great disap pointment, for, in Mrs. McCarthy's opinion, the only men worthy of seri ous consideration were her own coun trymen, and to help to dull the l:een edge of her grief, £!je old lady accom panied one of her sons to a fair which was being held in the neighborhood. It so happened that a wild-beast show was one of the principal attractions, and she was vastly interested in the occupants of t...

VALUE OF PRAIRIE GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 10 April 1914
VALUE OF PRAIRIE GRASS. It is surprising that more ittention is not given by farmers to the cultiva tion of prairie grass. It grows well over b wide raDge of Boils aud climate, and is especially valuable because of its robust growth in winter, when other grasses, both natural and im ported, are dormant. All classes cf stock are fond of it. Indeed, that is the chief reason why this grasB, in finitely supfrior to some of the much boomed receut importations, is so much neglected. In all ordinary pasture, where the 6tock range all the year, prairie grass id soon eaten out. Stock are 60 fond of it that they keep it) nib bled close to the ground, and under this treatment in soon succumbs. The right way to manage prairie glass is to sow it by itself in small paddocks, when it haB made good growth, turn sufficient stock in to eat it down rapidly, then turn them out and close up the fielJ until growth has been renewed. AB all farmers know, unices there are early and abundant rains, autumn an...

SIGNAGE MENT AND BREED ING OF HORSES. [11 One of the latest publications of the f Orange Judd Oompauy is the manage I ment and breeding of horses, by EL W ( Harper, professor of animol husbandry p in Cornell University. A copy of f this work has been sent to " Gleaner " for review. It is eminently practical and deals with every phase of horse breeding. Each breed is discussed in separate chapters. Mule breeding and the several breeds of Jacks employed in connection with it are discussed at length. In passing, it may be stated that not nea-ly as much attention is given to mule breeding in Australia as it deserves. According to the stat istics given in Professor Harper's book, there are nearly six million mules in the United States, and less than 500 in Australia. The author states that the average price of mules is greater than the average price of horses in the United States. I lThe care of mare and foal and prac I tical methods of handling and training young horses are fully dealt ...
