Government Officials as Show Judges. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 5 November 1910
Soviriafi! tifsdfflis is At a meeting of the Berry Agricultural Association, held last woek, consider able indignation was expected on the reading of a letter from the depart ment of Agriculture, refusing to per' mit Mv fYnnllhfTlinm t.r- net ns Tnrlrro 1 in Guernsey cattle sexion at the foith'- coming Berry show. It was stated that this lefusal was iu accordance with a regulation enacted of the late Minister of Agriculture, and it was regarded as arbitrary in the extract. It is impossible for the Society to pro cure a judge competent to adjudicate in a section comprising a new brei d oi' cattle such as Guernseys, aud it was pointed out that the best work done by the Departmented experts was when they came into personal cantact with the breeders of the State. So strongly did the committee feel upou the matter that it was resolved to wright a strong protest to the application of the re gulation referred to, and to move the South Coast Agricultural Societies' Union to vigorous opposit...
Rural Education. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 5 November 1910
Rural Education. Competent observers have said that Denmark owes its progress and prosperity to the coopera tive principle among its farm pve fi-niricr fiirfViPV hnok. fir rather diving deeper, they have attributed the success of the co operative movement to the high schools which have sprung up all over the land. Denmark, probably, has a finer system of rural education than any other country on the face of the earth, America not excepted. Denmark doesn't stop at the ag® of sixteen. In fact it sees no reason why it should stop at all. Consequ ently there are high schools for adults, where the average of the students is 24. Men go into _ . ? 1 _ j.1 _ _? i . n residence in ine winner niont-ns and women in the summer. The best of lecturers are got on history and literature and poli tical economy. The idea is to develop the intellectual side of the people on the land. When first the idea was given form there were sneers and laughter and ridicule, as there always is for the innovator. '...
By Edith Alien Public School Candelo. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 5 November 1910
By Edith Allen Public Helm! Candelo. There was a time when England or j Britain, as it was then called, was weak ! and poor and not nearly as famous as it j is today. It was at one time con- i quered by Julius Ceasar and added to the Roman .Em Dire ;? but in 410 A.D the Romans withdrew from the la*jd. Soon after they had left, the land was conquered by the foreigners (the E iglish). Those English were a very wirlike but just people. They made good laws and forced the people to keep them. From their advent, Eng. land gradually increased in importance and in time men went about in search of new land, and so England has con tinned to grow until it has became the largest Empire in the world. This has been due to the efforts of many great men iu the past such as Captian Cook, sir Walter Raleigh r» , James Wolf and Robert Clive, etc. Lord Roberts and Lord Kitchener are two of our present day Empire build ers. The later distinguished himself in Egypt and the former in South Africa. Oliver ...

EMPIRE B1111MR§,„ PAS a AND PRESENT. By Gertie Johnson, Convent School, Oaiulelo. One of those men who played a promi nent part in the building of our Empire is William Ewart Glad stone, who was born at Liverpool ou Dec. 29th, 1809. Ac htc tv-i ci wol 1 nfF rrnn rt rr Gladstone received a good education, for he studied at Eton and Oxford During his college career he showed none of the aptitude in dealing with figures as might have been .expected from the future Chancellor of the Exchequei. But he excelled his school mates in verse competition, and the writing of his mother tongue. Mr. Gladstone entered Parliament in 1832, just after the first Reform Act was passed. In Peel's second ministry he held office as President of the Board of Trade, and afterwards as Colonial Secretary.

The Farmer. THUNDER AND MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 5 November 1910
The Former. Thunder and Milk. A popular belief exists that thunderstorms will sour milk. But the foundation for the belief is questioned by a medical authority. It has been asserted , ?* i . i ?» i ? i t tuat tlie ozone produced m, me air by electricity causes the j milk to become sour, but ex periments in which electric sparks were discharged over the surface of milk have produced little or no effect on the milk. It seems probable that the con nection between the' thunder storm and the souring of milk is due to another cause than electricity. Bacteria grows more rapidly in warm weather. The warm and sultry conditions which precede thunderstorms are thus favourable to the de velopment of the lactic-acid or sour-milk bacillus. A thunder storm and the souring of milk may, therefore, occur together, not because of the influence of the thunder on the milk, but on account of the climatic condi tions preceding the storm. Experiment has now shown milk deprived of the lactic organisms is no...

So sudden was the attack iu the dark that it was only when Cromp ton got away that he \yas enabled to distinguish his assailant as a horse, and not, as thought at first, the South Coast Tiger of some time back.

Each man's chimney is his Golden Milestoue, Is the central point from which he measures every distance Through the gateways of the world around him. In his farthest wanderings still he sees it ; Hear's the talking flame, the answering night wind, As he heard them When he sat with thoso who were, but are not. Happy ho whom neither wealth nor fashion, Nor the march of the encroaching city, Drives an exile From the hearth of his ancestral home stead. We may build more splendid habita tions, Fill our rooms with paintings and with sculptures, Buf we cannot Buy with gold the old associations !

Poetry. Give Him a Lift. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 11 November 1910
[?] Give lis $ iiit. Give him a lift I Don't kneel iu prayer, Nor moralise with his despair ; The man is, down, and his great need Is ready help — not prayer and creed. 'Tis time the wounds are washed and healed, That Chriscly motives be revealed ; But now, whatever the spirit may be, Mere words are but mockery. One grain of aid just now is rnoie To him than tomes of saintly lore ! Pray, if you must, in your full heart ; But give hint a lift- — give him a stait. The world is full of good advice, Of prayer, and praise, and preaching nice ; But the generous souls who nid man kind Are scarce as gold and hard to find. Give like a christian — speak in deeds, A noble life's the best of weeds ; Aud he shall we^r a royal crown Who gives eru a lift when they aro down.
