St. Aidan's Easter Fair. AT WATCHE1T. The Easier Fair in connection with the Church of England, Watchem, was brought (o a most successful issuo on Friday and Saturday last, and we learn that tho net proceeds will exceed the highest anticipations by tens of pound.*, and the debt on tho church (about £75) will probably be more than obliterated.

Sir,—The opposition of many army oOioere to the British Government over tlia Ulster question should impress the Commonwealth and every thinking mind with the fcjet that compulsion and con Ecripton are wrong.

WHERE SOUND CANNOT BE HEARD. A Mystery of the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 22 April 1914

' WHERE SOUND CANNOT BE HEARD. A Mystery of the Sea. It is a singular and somewhat <lis turbing fact that there frequently ex ists at sea, in the area covered by a fog, what might bo described as a I zone of silence; that is, a belt of s,pace in which sound cannot be lieai\' It is the only thing of all otluvs most dreaded by mariners. T'i.to may be danger ahead—say, a deaJiy rock lying right in the vest's course. The light that marks it, whether from lighthouse or lightship, is blanketed by the fog, but the crev at least expect to hear the warning blast of the fog horn. No such blast reaches them. The sound is cjni pleteiy lost in the silence zone, and the first intimation tl:ey have of the danger is when the \ essel crashes on the rock. To this cause undoubtedly may be attributed some of the great dioas ters at sea which have puzzled many shore people. There was the ease of the Stella, for instance, which ran full tilt on the Casquet Rocks, off /Ylderaey. ; The Stella wa...

CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 22 April 1914

CIRCULAR SAWS OF PAPER. Paper is at present used for all pos sible purposes in the industries and in all possible forms. It lias even lieen possible by means of compression to give it a degree of hardness compar able with stone, so that it can be used as building material, The latest use for paper, however, is perhaps the most peculiar. A factory is said to exist in England which is manufactur ing circular saws from paper. Those paper saws arc used for the manufac turing oL fine furniture, veneer and other thin plates of wood, which must be treated especially carefully. Some time ago circular saws made from drawing paper were shown in an English exposition. The saws were driven by an electric motor and produced fine boards, which could not have been made better even by the finest steel saw. The veneers made in this way are so smooth that the cabinet makers can use them without further planing.

The Retort Courteous. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 22 April 1914

The Retort Courteous. One day a learned professor was accosted by a very dirty little boot black: "Shine your shoes, sir?" The professor was impressed by the fiithiness of the 'boy's face. "I don't want a shine, my lad," said he, "but if you'll go and wash your face I'll give you a sisr^ace." "A'richt, sir/' was the lad's reply, as he went over to a neighboring fountain and made his ablutions. Re turning, he held out his hand for the money. "Well, my lad," said the professor, "you have earned your sixpence. Here it is." "I dinna want it, auld chap," return ed the boy, with a lordly air. "Ye Keep it and get yer hair cut."

How to be happy ; on wash day: use THAT'S WHAT MOTHER USES HOW TO BE BEAUTIFUL. The man, or woman, who wants to ;tie as good-looking as nature will per mit is given a few practical hints in the "Family Doctor":— Don't eat your meals quickly; this causes indigestion and a red nose. Don't worry ; other people's troubles are quite as bad as yours. Don't forget that a penny spent on fruit does more good than a shilling on buns or sweets. Don't walk five miles one day and stay at home all the next. Don't read till midnight; one hour's sleep before twelve is worth five afterwards. Don't shut your bedroom window; fresh air is necessary for health.

SELECTING THE MILK COW. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 22 April 1914

SELECTING THE MILK COW. Nearly every good milk cow pos sesses certain points of conformation which indicate her milking qualities. The first important point is that she | shall show a lean or bony form, with ' a sharp prominent backbone, ribs ; wide apart, sharp withers and incurv ing thighs. This indicates "dairy temperament," or, in other words, that she will turn her feed into milk instead of beef. Next she will have a long, deep bar rel, well sprung ribs, broad muzzle, and a strong jaw, these points indica' ing capacity for consuming larger amounts of feed. Third, she will show a hardy con stitution. which is indicated by a large heart girth, a deep chest, large open nostrils, and a large wind pipe and lung capacity. Fourth, a good dairy cow should have an udder of good size running well forward and hung up well be hind. The region of the pelvis or the hips is wide, as is also the space be tween the thighs as viewed from be hind, giving ample room for a large udder. A large udde...

THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 22 April 1914

THE FLY IN THE DAIRY. As an intance of the numbers of I bacteria the common fly c;>n carry, the following figures given by Pro fessor Easton may be cited: — He caught 100 flies in a kitchen, put them in a pint of sterilised water and rinsed them about, and then examined the water, and found that lie had rais ed such a number of bacteria off that each fly averaged over HOO.OOO. He next caught a similar number in the cow barn, and they averaged ovv 800,000 each, another 100 in the pig pen, and the}1 averaged over 1,000,000 each. It may be said that when otio goes into a factory or house and finds i many flies, one is immediately justi-' fled in condemning the sanitary sur roundings of such premises. One can appreciate the fact that in factories where flies abound it is next to im possible to keep them out of the millc, and the seeding of the milk by the bacteria which they carry must be very appreciable. The evil deeds of the fly need emphasising, as too many of us seem to think th...

CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 22 April 1914

CABBAGE FOR DAIRY COWS, j The value of tl/e cabbage as a feed for dairy cows is fairly generally known. It is a succulent feed, is highly relished by cows,' is an ex cellent milk producer, and is 'rich in1 protein. But whilst its,' value is rea lised, many dairy farmers. have a rooted obection to it on account of its liability to impart an undesirable flavor to mill^ and butter. This ques tion' Is dealt with bv a writer in a recent issue of "Hoard's Dairyman." After observing tliat the only objec tion to feeding cabbage to milch cows is the flavor imparted to the i milk, he proceeds to point out that, when fed under certain conditions, this objectionable feature can be avoided. One of the first precautions to observe Is to keep the cabbage away from the shod milking time. Milk absorbs odors very quickly indeed, and if the cabbage odors are near the milk it will be tainted. An other precaution to observe is not to feed the cows just before milking; any high-flavored feed, in fact—tur...
