A LITTLE NATURE TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 9 May 1914
A LITTLE NATURE TALK. Not only naturalists, but everyone who lias watched ants has wondered how they find their way to and from their nests. A French naturalist, M. Cornetz, who watched ants in Algeria, tells the results of his observations. The ant, he says, in its outward jour ney, proceeds throughout in the di rection initially chosen; on its return the insect places its body at the same angle, and walks in the opposite di rection. The body of the ant would, there fore, act as a kind of compass needle. If an ant is caught at the nest and transported to a point some yards distant the insect is quite incapable of finding its way back. It runs around on the ground until it accidentally comes across the entrance to the bur row. The case is quite different if an ant is allowed to find its way to a distance unmolested. On leaving the nest it places. itself in a certain direction, and holds the same, no matter what obstacles it may meet en route, and no matter what side tracks it may oc...

THE INTERVENTION OF JOHN CHUMLEY. By John J. Armstrong. John Cliumley lowered his sixpenny thriller as the tired-looking woman en tered his sittiug-room, and regarded her with a smilo on liis broad red lace. Seated in a remarkably easy chair, with slippers and his oldest jacket 011, pipe well going, and a glass of what he termed "comfort" to his hand, John, on this Christmas Eve, would have admitted that lie was doing very well. He was getting to the age when material comforts arc appreciated. "Well, most excellent, Mrs. Moggs!" he said, cheerily. "Quite ready lor Christmas?" "Christmas don't mean much to me these times," returned the thin-l'aced landlady. "Things wus dil'f'rent when lie wus alive. Now, with my lad in India, it'll be quiet enough. I got an invite this mornin* from my sister l'em, in Plarstow but I'm sendin* her a postcard." "Why not go and liave a romp?" suggested John. "And my best gentleman left here oil his own!" "Nonsense!" protested John, with his jolly laugh. ...

The dusk had fallen some time, and had almost turned to decidcd dark ness, as Cranleigh's wife stood by the open studio window, waiting for Cur tis to come up to dinner. She hated having her meals alone, and since her husband's departure Dick and 6he usually dined together, either at home or out at a restaurant. They had i been very pleasant, all those little tete-a-tete meals, and the little jaunts that had been the order of things dur ing this past two monhs of Cranleigh's absence. And It was wonderful, now she came to think of It, how quickly the time had passed. Two days later lier husband would be back—dear, good-natured, easy-going "old John. And Dick—to-morrow Dick would be gone. She wondered curiously, as she leaned her arms on the window-sill, watching the twinkling lights on the river, that turn it 'by night into a won derful enchanted land, full of mystery and fascination, juBt why he wob go ing oil to Algiers on this trip; and she realised with somewhat startling suddenn...

FOE THE FARMER. THE ROTARY DISC PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 16 May 1914
FOE THE FARMER. THE ROTARY DISC PLOUGH. The rotary disc plough possesses the following advantages over the mould-board implements: — 1. Owing to the construction ar.d r.;ovement of the discs the draught is greatly reduced, and the capacity of the i:i.,)ieniLiUs considerably increas ed. 2. Their g.eat power in breaking up hard land makes it possible to com mence the ploughing of stubble land much earlier than is the case when mould hoards are used, thus increas ing the capacity of the soil to re ceive and retain moisture at a season when, under ordinary conditions, sat isfactory mould board work is im practicable. 3. The work is more cheaply done. Tlio discs are so placed that one disc forces the broken soil sideways against the next one, pulverising it and performing the operation of pack ing, thereby improving the sscd fled and preventing the escaped moisture to a greater extent than is possible in the more open work of other ploughs. Preference should be given to implements that h...
