On the othe? itnd, his" friends chink 2 rather hard tilt because ho has got 1 sweetheart they must needs go to Ae wall. .Often they cliaft him . un mercifully 'at his desertion of them and If he Is a foolish fellow, and weak minded,. . he not -infrequently is ashamed to go as much with his fiance as he would-.lilte, and so gives some foundation for her accusation ol neglect. . Now, who has the greater claim on him? Shall he neglect his sweetheart or his friends? As to claim, there can bo little ques tion about it. When ho e'.octcd a girl Into the position of his promised wife, he gave her a claim beside which most others became exceedingly small. He has 110 right to let her feel herself neglected.

WEATHER SIGNS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 April 1914
WEATHER SIGNS. When you see-a man running after a 'bus, expect hail. If he boards it, it will suun he fair. But if he slips and falls into a . mud-heap, there'll be a change ere long. Start out without a mackintosh' and garap, then expect rain, and a lot of it. But out in a heavy overcoat and it will be warm and muggy for certain. A "Haw-haw" Johnnie, stroking his upper lip, indicates soft and balnn 'airs. When you see a man drinking : heavily, he'll soon get into « fog. If that same man reaches home with the milk ami fm;ls his wife awaiting him, there's a storm brew ing. Step on the colonel's gouty toe, and there will he thunder. (Jive your guests a cool reception, and your party will turn out a front. A widow, crying over the late la-, men ted, means much mist. The arrival in London of Hieland' ers fra Inverness indicates Gaels from the North.
OLD MAIDS NO LONGER. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 April 1914
OLD MAIDS NO LONGER. Fashions change In people as well a9 In things. Let us take, for Instance, the "old maid." A generation ago she was thought of as an angular and prim person who looked rather sourly on the world, and consoled herself Tor the lack of masculine attentions with a parrot and a cat. Truth to tell, she often answered to tho picturo drawn of her. The typical "old maid" of to-day is a brisk, healthy, indc; endent woman following somo profession or calling, and subject to no ridicule because ol her state of single blessedness. She is no longer even an "old maid," but has become a "bachelor girl."
THE FARM AND DAIRY. SILOS AND ENSILAGE. THEIR COMMERCIAL ASPECT. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 April 1914
THE FARM AND DAIRY. SILOS AND ENSHiAClIC, THE 111 COMMERCIAL ASl'KOT. bilage is fast changing the methodi of fending ail classes of live stork One of the chief advantages of silagi feeding is the cheapening of the ra tion of the dairy cow. The succulent silage is much more desirable than the dry. woody luir.fs of the fodder, or even hay with its large amount of crude fibre. Three dairy farmers, whose testimony is here, quotr*] as reprc.wnt.at.ivc of number of others, .say "J satisfied that the in crease of production of milk and cream has paid for my silo thin year. My cows have milked the past, winter (ust as if they were on prass." "Si lage saves one-half in the feed WIN, and over one-half in the amount of hay eaten." "J find silage excellent for dairy cows. Our cows mil t as well in winter as they do in summer ; in fact, they usually gain when we com mcnee to feed." Besides the cost o[ t.lio ration b-in r educed, there is "iso K reduction in the cost of producing a given amount o...
FOR THE DAUGHTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 April 1914
FOR THE DAUGH Every mother should, where It la possible, permit her daughters to fur nish their rooma according to their own taste. In this way a girl can find a plea sant mode of expressing her own indi viduality. Even where it is not con venient to allow the daughter to do llie furnishing, the mother can en courage her to have the photographs nnd ornaments of which she is fond displayed about ber room. Some of the pleasantest rooms in many homes are those in which the daughters of the house have been al lowed to show their individual tastes. The care and arrangement of such apartments have proved a source of continual pleasure to the girls, develop ing their Jjome-keeping instincts, and incidentally helping to form their char altera as wives and matrons.
To Disinfect a Cowshed. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 April 1914
To Disinfect a Cowshed. 11 is always good practicc where a contagious disease of any kind has gained oceans to the herd to dis infect the entire stable. In fact, this is often imperative if it ft de* j»ired to stamp out* the disease. Disinfection is absolutely nec«*#ary where tulKsrculosis has gained ac cess to the herd. Bulletin 12iJ of the Pennsylvania State College of Agriculture recently published gives a plan for disinfecting the stable*) which is valuable for this as well as for some other diseases 1. Remove all manure, litter, loose dirt, loose, rotten boards and scrape the floor clean. 2. Swwp the ceilings and walls free from cobwebs, dust and dirt. 51. Wash the feed boxes, mangers,, bails and partitions with hot water containing enough lye or washing powder to cut 1 lie dirt. Scrub all these objects vigorously with a stifT brush. 4. Spray the walls, ceilings and floors with bichloride of mercury solution (1,100) or a 5 per cent, carbolic acid solution (not crude). r».Flush ...
LAUGH AND LIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 April 1914
LAUGH AND LIVE. Having vainly tried many nnfl vari ous remedies to restore a business man who had fallen into a morbid con dition owing to years of overwork; a fa mous doctor at last persuaded his pa tient to take a course of funny stor ies, one at each meal, with an extra two at dinner. The patient, a solemn and gloomy man, at first rebelled, but finally, fall ing In with the idea, adopted the course recommended, and was in the end restored to health, the effect of laughter being entirely to change his mental and bodily condition. Laughter, In fact, Is one of the cheapest and most effective of medi cines, breaking up stagnation of mini! and body, and sending a healthy vibra lion through the system. There is very little the matter with the man who can c-ujny a hearty Imigh.

THE GARDEN. INFLUENCE OF CROSSING ON YIELD OF TOMATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 April 1914
THE GARDEN. i INFLUENCE OF CROSSING ON YIELD OF TOMATOES. la regard to the experiments with tomatoes at the New York. Agricul tural Experimental station,, Mr. Wel lington has found that n crop of hy brid plants of the Grst generation give a\larger yield than cither of the parental forms, or of the succeeding generations after the "break." The results sugscst and seem to warrant the use of first generation seed only if the main object be the production of a heavy crop. Of course, it en tails all the extra enre and trouble that artificial fertilisation means ; but Tomato fruits, as a rule, pro-' duce a large numbrr of seeds, which, ; so far, is some compensation acAinst the extrfi trouble. Tomato seeds re- j tain their vitality, it is said, for \ from three td seven years ; therefore i it would only he absolutely neces ; snry for seed-growers to raise every third year n sufficient quantity to cover the needs of a three-year sale. It would appear to be a simple matter for raisers of to...
CHAPTER XXII. A NEW ACQUAINTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 April 1914
CHAPTER XXIX. A NEW ACQUAINTANCE. It is iittlc wonder that Dick was surprised by this unexpected and beautiful revelation. The gateway had kept its secret well,- appearing j until the last moment to lead only I to a tiny, rock-girt harbour. But, on I the contrary, here was a lagoon of ] placid silverj water, stretching; In 'both directions until its noble sweep was hidden by the curve of Its shores. It was no more than a quarter of a mile wide, and so deep and clear that one could see perfect reflections of the natural bulwarks that confin ed it-the lofty rim of clifls on the seaward side, and the parallel and opposite-lying frontage of the island proper. Dick's eyes sparkled as he gazed; and a spell of "enchantment held him toiipue-tied. Before him the fortress wall towered proudly, the smoking guns still peering from the square, holes. Over the top of the parapet many heads - were visible, and higher in air swarmed birds that had been disturbed by the thunder of the sa lute. To th...
WHAT WE WASH WITH. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 April 1914
WHAT WE WASH WtTH. One of the few inventions that are not ascribed to foreign ingenuity is that common household article soap. It is said that the ancieJit Uritons were the first makers of sr>ap, and that the Romans, when they con quered Kugland took the invention hack with them to Italy. * Most of what we wash with is made from fat, hut abroad there are natu ral soaps. There is the soap-root uf Spain, the soap-berry of Chili, and the hark of the Peruvian soap-tree. At a little town in Mexico, soap ac tually takes thc place of copper coin age ! In another part of the same -South American Republic the inhabi tants eat soap, finding much nourish ment therein. The French term for soap, "savon" by thc way, owes its oripin to the .town of Savona, in Krance, where vast quantities of the material were formerly manufactured. 1924. ! Dip brooms in boiling soap-suda for a few minutes weekly, and they will last much longer than they other wise do. v 19ti.
BRANDING OF HIDES. OUR PRESENT WASTEFUL METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 April 1914
BRANDING OF HIDKS. OUlt rRE3ENT WASTEFUL METHODS. 'fhe great, waste of money entailed by our present method of branding cattle is a subject which periodically crops up in the newspapers and lea ther trade journals. It never ap pears, however, to get past this stage, for the same injurious method of applying hot irons to the best part of an animal's hide still con tinues. In this connection it is point ed out bj the English Farmers' Fed eration that the difference in price of leather, were it not branded, is probably 3d. to 4d. per !!>. Then, again, raw hides, if not branded, would fetch Id. per lb, more, and, as these hides weigh from 60!b. to 801b. the difference in value is very ap preciable. The Federation advocates either an alteration of the method of branding, or that the animals be branded with smaller brands, on the cheeks, ears, or flank-not on the rump or the back, as is at present nearly always done. They consider that this would be equally distin guishable, and would ...
THE PERIOD OF ENGAGEMENT [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 April 1914
THE PERIOD?OF ENGAGEMENT.! Much marital unhappiness might ha avoided it it were customary to * re gard an. engagement o£ marriage as a period of probation-a sort of trial trip, so to speak, before the two, man. and wife, set out together for the jour ney-hand in hand which is to continue until death do thein part. Lovers in the first ecstasy of pas- , sion lose slsin of everything except ing each other, whom they behold in a halo of roseate light which wholly obscures all defects. No man, still less woman, madly in love ever believes anything to the dis credit of the beloved one. The mildest adverse criticism is a( once ascribed to envy, hn'.red, malice, and all uncharitablcness. vj.ove me, , love my do?." is nothing to it. Such a state of exaltation cannot last. Disenchantment is sure to coma sooner or later, and it is well for those.-.' who are able to admit the fact, and acknowledging that never yet was mortal man or woman more than hu man, to endeavor fo become thorough ly well ...

Still a Puppy. The youth had only just left college, and his ambition, like his collar, wae high. At home, the all-engrossing subject was the young man's future career; And he was discussing with hiB par ents which of the professions stood most in need of his genius. The father's idea of his son's ability r.as disgustingly low. "I think," said the old man, "that yon had better adorn one of the stools in aiy office." The young man drew himself up, and the high collar grew tight as he strove to swallow his righteous anger. Fold ing his arms, he asked: "Am I a dog?" "No, not yet; but you'll grow," ca:> r the crushing response. Th» man If fortunate who neve, knows when he gets the worst of it.

Kind To His Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 17 April 1914
Kind To Hla Horses. One of our smaller public senools poasts a brass band, of which the hoys are exceedingly proud. But the towns people look with anything but favor able eyes upon these young musician:-, and never lose an opportunity of show lug their dislike. One day recently the band was en gaged to play at a charity bazaar in a small town some distance from the school, and a waggonette was hired to take the boys there. On the way the young leader of tli" band suggested that they should "have a tune," but the driver of the waggon ette at once objected. "No toons while I drive," he dn clared. "But why?" persisted the musicians. "Surely th« horses wouldn't run away?" "No," said the driver they wouldn't." "Then why object?" "Simply becos the poor beggars couldn't run away it they tried," was the grim retort. "Their runnin' away days Is over, an* as long as I drives you ain't goin' to take no mean ad vantage of 'em! That's why I sez no loons." The boys subsided, and there were 'no to...

More Economical. Expert testimony may be valuable, from .a scientific point ot vlow, but there am often cheaper ways of estab lishing a certainty, as the hero of the following anecdote decided at the last. moment: - An Irish laborer entered a chemist'^ and drawing a paper-bag from, li: pocket poured on the counter a num ber of very sticky and unattractive looking lozenges. "Can ye examine this candy?" las. . asked. "it looks queer. What .is the mat ter with it?" asked the chemist. "Pizen, Oi'm tliinkin'. Did ye lvoi see such stuff?
