Chickens Hatched by Bees [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914
Chickens Hatched by Bees * Rearing chicks by electricity seems a tall order, yet this is what is being done at a chick farm at lluskogee, Oklahoma, whero the welfare of the occupant from the ogig is electrified and the growth of the young birds forced by the aid of electric light. A tungsten lamp is about sixty watts is hung in the runway, and is switched on and off alternately for eight hours each. When the light is on the chick fills its crop, and rests after the light is turned off. The ca pacity of the incubutor is for eigh teen to twenty trays, one under the other ; thus upwards of 5,000 eggs fill a single chamber. The trnys are so arranged that a blast cf warm air circulates through the rows of eggs. Some: of the fn-ms installed by tho (ipporat-'s can hatch 10,000 chicks every day in the year, and in a sin gle season as many as 20;000,000 lively chicks have been hatched and shipped abroad. But not everyone who owns a bee hive and knows something about poultry knows that chicke...

A SHRINKING SEA. I The surfacc oi: the Caspian, which lies 88ft. below sea level, has, since i June, 1010, been continually sitik i ing, without a plausible explana ! tion having hitherto been found. | No great importance wius at first | attached to the phenomenon, but the i shrinkage went on, and is now j even beginning to be inconvenient f«.r navigation, as steamers in many I laves cannot reach the landing stages.

Dowries for Gifts. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 11 September 1914
Dowries for Gifts. * At diflcrent times thoughtful peo ples have stipulated in their wills that a certain sum of money shall be set aside to provide dowries for girls. The best-known example is the Dute Marriage Dowry, established by a Marquess of llute, who left £1000 for the purpose. The annual inter est upon this money, about £30, is presented each year to a claiinunt for it, the fortunate girl being cho sen by the Mayor of Cardiff. When handing the money over to the lucky young lady and her sweetheart, it is customary for the mayor to read the young couple a portion of the second chapter of St. John, which refers to the marriage in Cana of Galilee. Dowries for girls are also pre sented at Guildford, the practico of throwing dice for what is called the "maid's money" taking place an nually. The money is derived from capital set apart in the will of a certain John How, who requested that dowries ' should be paid to poor servant- girls who had worked faith fully In,the . borough; f...

She cnlled the lodger and told him to get the gun, call the dog, and stand at a con venient distance. Then she clam bered half-way upstairs, and com menced to punch the flour' barrel with a pole.
