FEEDING FOR EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 14 March 1914
FEEDING FOR EGGS. There are many wlio do not gtvo their birds soft food in the morning as they conBldor it coBts more than hard corn, and so Indu. es loss, but this Idea is a mistaken one, as fowls ted once a day on menl will produce (If a good laying strain) at least 30 or 40 eggs more per bird during the year in comparison with others kept under exactly similar conditions that are fed on hard grain. It must be re membered, too, that these extra eggs uro produced in the winter months with the ibreabfast soft food, just at the time when eggs are most valu able. One reason why soft food in the morning is most benelicial to the fowls is that the hard corn or grain takes a certain time to Boak into the - gizzard; but the soft meal passes in to the system immediately, and the fowl is nourished at once, so that no time is lost, and the llesli or eggs aro produced with less exertion than If hard corn wore given. It pays better to give the soft meal once a day, viz., in the morning, and th...

EASIER TO WRITE IT. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 14 March 1914
EASIER TO WRITE IT. Prior to the epoch-making moment when Ills love triumphed over his na tlvo "bashfuinesB young Askam would have maintained against any odds that the hardest tiling in life wns to propose to the girl you worshipped. Afterwards, however, lie decided that the proposal was simply child's play compared to asking tlio consent of ills father-in-law elect, although that estimable old gentlomau was a great friend. Flushed with success with the daughter, lie felt filled with the spirit of a hundred conquerors, and reck lessly insisted upon seeing the father at once. But upon reaching the li brary the spirit of the hundred con querors suddenly evaporated and. loft him with pale face and trembling knees and chaotic mind. "1—or—er " he stammered in sulllclently. "Indeed!" observed the old gentle man, chuckling. "Then you're no more than human." "Ha, ha!" gnspfcd Mr. Askam, hys terically, pretending a hilarity he waB far, far from feeling.

II was nearly ono o'clock when tlicy. returned to the cottage—Leila was .waiting for thorn on tho road.

THINK FOR YOURSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 14 March 1914
THINK FOR YOURSELF. In educational matters the most Im portant matter is often neglected by teaching children the thoughts of oth ers instead of cultivating their own power to think, the necessity of Which must impress itself on any thought ful person, who must realise that the thoughts, etc., of good men, ranging back 10, 15, 26, and 50 years, are not in ail cases the thoughts of to-duy or adaptable to the present conditions; Thus in all educational matters the ono ijiotto stands good, "Think for yourself."

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 14 March 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. When cleaning knives damp thorn ibefore rubbing on the boards; this will produce a better polish and they will clean .much quicker. To impart a delicate odor to linen, saturate a piece of cotton 01- blotting paper with oil of lavender and place It among the various articles. A little ibag of sulphur suspended In a bird-cage is not only healthy for the bird, but keeps away the parasites with which some birds are infested. If wood worms are In old furniture rub constantly with turpentine. The polish made of turpentine and bees wax is to be preferred to any other for this cure. When boiling a haddock fasten the head to the tail, add only sufficient water to cover, and boil slowly till cooked. Haddock is hard and indi gestible if boiled fast. Old nail holes in wood may be filled up by mixing sawdust with glue till it is the consistency of stiff paste. Pess this compound iiico the holes, and It will ibecome as hard as the wood it self.

The Archdeacon. I. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 14 March 1914
The Archdeacon. No acquaintance called him by any other name than the Archdeacon; but dimly it was remembered by his friends that he had been baptised "George." A fat and kindly man he was, who oozed benevolence from every human pore, had a voice which should have come up from 4jie depths of the sea, and a hand which touched all things with gentleuess. The friendship between Hugh Don ald and the Archdeacon was of old standing. Hugh remembered the. ami able cleric at Aberfeldy almost as long aB lie could remember anything at all. The truth was that the Very Rev. George Hedges fished both for the souls of men and the bodies ot salmon, qnd was almost equally suc cessful at either vocation. To him, Hugh Donald was as his own son— and in this light he thought of him as he sat upon the bridgo deck of the yacht Chrlstabel that aunny after noon and listened to the golfers' 'bab ble. A woman! The Archdeacon prick ed up his cars at such talk. 'lias he known her long? Did you say he met her on...
A PRINTER'S TYPE. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 14 March 1914
A PRINTER'S TYPE. What a wonderful thing is a printer's type! Assembled with other letters into words and sentences, it brings to us throug i centuries long past, the vital thoughts from the mind of genius. It brings from lips long crumpled into dust the stirring call to duty, the message of hope, c-f charity, of love and of forgive ness. As life goes on the power of the letter grows. Vast machines take it with i'-s follows, marshaling into ranks and lii us, and its impress is whirled to vast distances—awakening and making true the hopes and dreams of men. We who place the letters day by day will past, and they will fix our memory ac cording; as we are worthy or unworthy. This Hi tie leaden particle is the recorder of the world. It is the herald of the world lu come. - A. N. MoQuilkin. Harry Hawker, the Australian avia tor, ho ds that coolness and presence of mind r.iv naturally more necessary in flying than in motoring.

CEDAR OF LEBANON IN ENGLAND [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 14 March 1914
ClJDAIt or lJJISANON IN KXGLAND Cedars of Lebanon, reported to bo rapidly disappearing from their native range (says "TheWostmliiKter Gazette") were Introduced into England during the first half of the seventeenth cen ! tury. Thoy have flourished admirably with us, though the Kcw authorities do not agree with King Solomon about the valuo ot' the timber, which may possibly have suffered in quality from the change of climate. Somo of our finest specimens are alleged to com pare favorably for dimensions with the largest of the HiO patriarchs that still linger on the slopes of lx»banon. Of late years*, either cedars of Lebanon or the closely allied Atlas cedars have almost invariably been planted instead of tho traditional oaks to commemorate Royal visits, being of more rapid growth and equally majostlo propor tions.
