Life Among Lunatics. THE EFFECT ON KEEPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 8 May 1914
Life Among Lunatics. —, - Ti^ir. riisr TCP.TCPrcnS. ■ rnhc popular '-misconception as to the, treatment, . environment, and / daily life- of llie inmates of insti tulions for. the .criminal insane is very great, anct Dr. Edward H. Williams, who has great experience in Che iriatter, has set out to clear it up. ■An -interesting ])oint which l)r Williams covers is that of the effect of the peculiar life upon ollicials -andkeepers - connected with such ■institutions.. Surrounded ]>y ;ui at mosphere of delusions and hallucina tions, Dr. Williams insists that these men really bevome more level headed, their normality is accen tuated, and, freason of the con stant thrusting upon their atten tion of the evil results of lack of self-restraint, they learn to curl) certain tendencies of their own. If this is true—and the doctor has had sufficient, experience to know —it is a remarkable thing. The first sensation of t he . novice iu visiting an institution is to feel that "if he were to ...

Countess Russell Warns 'Black Magic' Dabblers. (By COUXTESS IiUSSELL.) I .have long been aware of the con sequences that may affect the ■ thoughtless and careless sitter at seances, who, longing' lor a new experience, recklessly joins a number of people bent on recoiving some . messages from the other side. I do not profe.ss to explain the j phenomena that occurs, neither do 1 affirm that the dead manifest them selves ; but I know that some power is developed at such a meeting, and ; " demonstrates itself often in a mar ' vellous way. It is,-impossible in a 'bhort articlc to "give examples of what occurs, and 'J woulddesire rather than to rr emphasise the danger of meddling ■' in':occult, matters until more know • ledge" is- gained as .to rules and precautions . by which the people • taking part in a rseance 'may be protected. . • . ; The \ very . fact that sitters are .:o asked to be'quite passive, requested : . not to exert their will - power, but -just quietly . waitand see what ...
THE FARM. VALUE OF SILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 8 May 1914
THE FARM. . . + : VALUE OF SILAGE. The advantages of silage feeding j J (writes an oversea paper) might be; summed up, as follows : Silage keeps ' young stock thrifty and growing all i winter. It enables the "cow to pro dace milk and butter-fat more ccono-. mically. It increases the proportion of milk and butter-fat. Silage is more easily handled than .dry fodder. ■ The silo makes use of the cornstalks which would otherwise not be eaten and preserves them in/a palatable , CCOn'obilCMl jTictliocI' of supplying- feed-: for the stock during the hot, dry periods of snmmrr when the pastures are short. The field is in good con dition for autumn cultivation after the corn has been removed. Silaice does not deteriorate in palatability as docs corn stored later in the spring. Less loss results in unfavour able seasons where the crop docs not mature completely, as the corn may, be used for silage to good advantage even if it is not thoroughly matured.

INFLUENCE OF FATNESS OF COW AT CALVING. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 8 May 1914
INFLUENCE OF. FATNESS OF COW AT. CALVING. .. An examination • of the records' of official tests ; * with Holstein-Friesian cows by one of th'e American experi mental stations showed that the fat content of the milk for a short time at the beginning of a lactation pe riod may have little relation to the real average fat content of the milk produced by any particular animal. Investigations with cows of various breeds and in different conditions were carried out, and it is concluded that, providing the cow is underfed after calving, the percentage of fit ;in the milk for the first 20 or 30 days of the lactation period is in fluenced to a considerable extent by the fatness of the cow at calving. In some cases this influence appeared to extend to a. certain degree for at least three months. | The tiller of the soil is the most necessary man in the world. He feeds and clothes the world, and with out him, the world would go naked ! an-d starve. Apparently he is the only t person in the wor...

HORNLESS CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 8 May 1914
HORNLESS CATTLE. Significant progress lias been made during the past ten years ,in estab lishing polled types of horned breeds of cattle. Polled Durhams, Polled Herefords, and Polled Jerseys repre sents the most notable achievements in this line of breeding. Beginning with "sports" or naturally. hornless animals, the polled character has been fixed in these three types to an extont which ensures its reproduction in an overwhelming majority of _ma ' tings. Foiled blood has bccome so ' potent that, although obtained j through "sports" from breeds with , horns, its polling efficiency is thor oughlj dependable, even in cases i where the elimination of horns is met with stubborn ' inherent opposi tion. A strong and growing demand for polled types of horned breeds is ex pressing itself in the operations of farmers, feeders, and breeders. Those who tak"e the purely practical view of horns, considering them useless and expensive physically to remove, wel come the hornless types as satisfac ...

CHAPTER XXXII.—(Continued.) The girl's sober words had brought him to earth again, and banished his short-lived hopes and exultation. He felt his air-castles tumbling about him in ruins. "It is better to face (.he worst,," Lucille continued, sadly. "There is no thought of danger in the town, though-the people are excited. Jason Gore believes these men-of-war have found the island by chance, and that they are not sure it is the place they, are seeking.
