Have you tried it? [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 15 May 1914
. Have youBtried it ? The greatest profit-maker on the farm is not the wheat crop, even though every available acre be sown to that cereal; it is not flax, though a 20-busliol orop were to sell for two' dollars a bushel: it is not lucerne, the king nf grasses, it is not the dairy cow with her sleok_ coat and liquid oyes; nnr is it the giant tractor, doing the work of twenty horses. The greatest money-maker on the farm is a two cent, lead pencil worn down to a more stub in the process of calculating just whore the money went, and what for; just whore the monoy came in, how much, and what part of the income remains as profit. Have you this kind of a money-maker on your' farm, and is it working every day? A mother led lier six children to thn apple tree. It had borne but a single anple—no longer visible to the casual observer. "I told you not to pick that apple!" she said. sternly. "Wo didn't pick it!" tlm .children answered in chorus.

THE HOLSTEIN. There aro several distinct groups of Dutch cattle—namely, the Fries ian, the Black and White Holland, thq Black White-head Groningen, and the Red white Meuse-Rhine-Yssel groups. Id some of the best herds the average an nual yield is stated to be 860 gallons and over, including heifers with first calves. Older oows are said to give 1300 gallons, and the fat percentage is estimated at from 3 to 5 per- cent. Among the dairying herds of Amerioa the Holstein ranks only second to the Jersey. It is the largest of the dairy breeds, and the colour markings are variegated blaok and white, there being a preference, as a rule, for animals on which the two colours are about evenly divided. These colours ,»ro never blended, but always sharply defined. The cows ar» lively,t and have plenty of nervous energy, which is so essential a characteristic in any dairy breed; but unlike the highly-developed Jersey, they aro at the same time very tract ablo, and sudden disturbances or' un usual...

THE FARM TOOL KIT. Buying tools by tho chest is * good way fo have them poor, both in qualitj and scloction. If you InVen't the tool you thinb you need, think twice before borrow ing it from a neighbor, Tho longer you use a tool tho more kinds of work you will" find it capable of doing. Hence the wisdom of buy ing tools ono at a time until you find you aro equipped. Provido a shop, if it be only a good boncli against a building covered with a shed roof. With a good chest, 01 tight drawers in the benoh, took can bo kept dry When you lament the lack of tools, bo sure that it is not a sharpening 01 tho old ones that is really needed. A sharp tool does more work and better kinds of it than a dull tool. In a. pinch, a' sharp chisel will talc* thfl place of a plane. There is nothing that will he tuwd oftenor or more effectively oa the farm than a heavy crowbar. Don't think you need every size ol bit, drill and chisel.

HONEYMOON TRAMPS. The average bride when she changes her orange blossoms and her resplendent - wedding dress for the more prosaic travelling costume, does not usually have to prepare for such a journey as that undertaken by Mr. and Mrs. Grantham, 01 Alberta.

WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 22 May 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. Sometimes, when nothing goes just right, And worry reigns supreme, When heartache fills the eyes with mist, And all things useless seem, There's just one thing can drive away The tears that scald and blind— Someone to slip a strong arm round And whisper, "Never mind." No one has ever told just why Those words such comfort bring; . Nor why that whisper makes our: cares Depart on hurrieU'.>'ing. Yet troubles say a quick "Good-day!" We leave them far behind When someone slips an arm around, And whispers "Never mind." But love must prompt that sort caress— The love must aye be true; Or at that tender, clinging touch No heartsease comes to you. But if the man be moved by love, Sweet comfort you will find When someone slips an arm around. And whispers "Never mind."

CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 22 May 1914
CHAPTER XI. . While Sheila was happy as girl con 1-3 be, without, as she expressed it, a care in the world, very different was the case of Margaret Bellairs. It was true that her husband never reproach ed her, that he never, by word or deed alluded to that dark tragedy ot the past, but the old tenderness, the ar dent and real love, which had been her portion and which liad made her so very happy, seemed—as far as she could tell—to cease to exist. Bellairs was kind to her, paying her every possible attention, Tjut he never took her hand as of yore and pressed it in one of liis, nor did he look into her eyes with the loving-kindness of for mer days. These things the unhappy woman believed were reserved for Sheila and Sheila alone. Bellairs could not pet the pretty girl enough, but he never turned to his w;ie with the old dearly longed-for look ill his eyes. Moreover, there was no doubt liut that Peter Bellairs, ICC., no longer absolutely trusted Margaret. It was he who paid the bills ...

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER X. Those of us who have not been pre sented at Court know all about it, in a few cases, from our friends, but for the most part from newspapers and weekly-periodicals. Sheila Danver's debut differed from that of other girls in two respects. In the first place, the extreme simplicity of her dress—which, notwithstanding the Court train and feathers, was made precisely after the Duchess of Tewkesbury's direction—was remark able, and, in the second, she wore the most magnificent pearls of any debu tante and looked, neverthelss, almost like a child. The whole affair went off with the usual eclat, or perhaps one may say, want of eclat. The Duchess of Tewkesbury, who was a particular friend of Her Majesty's, surveyed Sheila as she entered her presence, and, without a moment's hesitation, removed the brooch w...

REAL EQUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 22 May 1914
REAL EQUALITY. The wooing had progressed splen didly. It had even progressed to a point whore she had been won—that is, ostensibly won. If she proved to be a truthful girl, she would in time be his wife. If she were not'truthful —well, no man wants a wife who is not truthful. That's the way some men console themselves when they fail to marry. But she seemed to be truthful, and as he drew Uer closer to him he whis pered: "And when we are married, dearest, we will have the happiest home in all the wide, wide world!" "Yes, George," she replied. "There can never be a harsh word in our homo." 'No, George." "And when I come home tired and worn out with work at the office and the worries of business, you'll be kind to me?" "Y-e-s, George." "I knew you would. You'll soothe me and put me in better humor?" "v'-e-s; but, I say, George!" . "Yes, dearest." "Why shouldn't you do a little of this yourself?" "Why, darling " "Yes, that's all right. But to come right down to business, as papa says, w...
