Now all my friends envy my full, firm throat; I've no loose slcin under my chin, and not a sign of a salt cellar. And the remedies I used were so simple. .... A friend who lias studied physical culture in Sweden taught mo three head and neck exorcises, which have i had such a good result, that I feel I would be quite selfish to keep them to I myself. When doing these t'xerclses, the neek should ho bare, Tho best plan is to do them in a dressing jacket, : but as it is advisable to do them at in tervals during tho day, as well as night, and morning, and at such times it is not convenient to take off onc'si b'louse, the nock-band and tho top hooks should be unfastened.

Many people forget that sunburn often causes as much .pain as frostbite, and sunburnt legs often cause a lot ot suifering from wnich it would be quite ea.sy to protect them by greasing them all over before the child goes out in the morning. The nicest thing for tho purpose is olive oil, lanoline, or vaseline, but this would come rather expensivo if the summer should be a long, hot one, and if there should be a largo number of legs to be operated upon. Lt is, therefore, well to remember that any kind of cloan kitchen grease will answer as wall. 'fhe grease should be what cooks call "rendered''' before it is used for an ointing the skin.

HOW TO OBTAIN GOOD CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 March 1914

HOW TO OBTAIN GOOD CROPS. Aii averago or op of hay extracts from tho soil about 50lb. of nitrogen, an equal quantity of potash, and 131b. oi phosphoric acid. A question often asked is: Should a dressing of nitrogen bo applied to' the land? As a rule, probably not, or to quite a limited ex tent. Tho clover which grows in the Hold and tho bacteria whioh arc active in meadow land may bo trusted to col lect sufficient nitrogen out of the air to nourish not only the clover but the grasses. This is assuming that the meadow contains a fair proportion oi clover; when such is not tho case and there is little clover, then a dressing ol nitrogen is advisable and very advan tageous. Tho two other plant foods, potash and phosphoric acid, should be liberally applied to meadows, espeoially if the lield is poor in plant food. Ivainit is a good form of potash, except in very heavy lands, and .then sulphate .of pot ash should bo used. To obtain the best crops tho land should bo well ftel with potash ...

REASONS FOR ROTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 March 1914

I REASONS FOR ROTATIONS ,At tlio ba.sis of all genuine rotations lies the fact that plants differ from one another ill their demands upon the soil, both eheinieal and physical; they differ with regard to their root systems, depth of feeding, their moisture requirements, their1 _ timo of feeding, tlieir dates in reaching maturity, etc. Many plants impoverish tlio soil; a few enrich it; some spoil its physical condition, while others improve it in that regard. Many crops favor tlio growth of weeds, whiio others either are able to hold tho weeds in check, or re quiro such cultivation and treatment as will prevent their growth. All these differences fit plants for different places in rotation, and a weli ar ranged rotation is ouo in which the strong points of ono or op follow so as to fit into tho weak points of another, or vice versa, and in this way reduoo deficiencies to a. minimum.
