ACID SOILS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 March 1914
ACID SOILS. As every farmer knows the; presence of acidity in soil is injurious to vege tation. It gives rise to some ^welJ known plant diseases, such as "finger and toe" in turnips, it prevents tho growth of sweet rich herbage, and there are some plants, for instance, lucerne, I that refuse to grow in acid soil. What are the principal oauso.-i &lt;>f soil acidity? 1. The decomposition' of organic matter accompanied, by the formation of various organic compounds. 2. Tho action of soil'bacteria act ing upon certain portions of tho vego- j table matter in the soil. 3. Tho breaking up of mineral fer tilisers.

SMOKE AND ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 March 1914
SMOKE MiD ELECTRICITY. Electricity appeared as a solution for the smoke problom in recent demon stration. Tim smoke-abating appliance removed the soot from 900 cubic feet of .smoke in a minute at a total cost of about a penny a day for operation. The action of the apparatus consists iu pre cipitating the solid particles in the smoke by means of a powerful electric current, and its invention is based on the fact that one-third to one-half of the solid matter in smoke from smelt ing furnaces consists of particles of iron oxide. b'Jectrical current is applied to the smoke by means of a wire woven I through a number of small pipes placed | at . the top of the chimney so that the [ smoke must pass through theai. As I soon as the electricity is turned oil the small particles lloating iu the smoke are ] changed to largo particles which fall j back into a l>in by their owu weight. \ Its application is not coulined, however, j to smelting furnaces, for it has been , Cound that the devicc ...
LITTLE THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 March 1914
LltTLE THINGS. A little word, said pleasantly in pas sing, may brighten up some oa re worn fellow's day; a little sneer, a little bit ter sassing, may change his skies from gold to sombre gray,. A littlo praise may send feet blithely tripping, . that otherwise would drag the long day through; a little help, when somq poor cuss is "slipping, may start him right and bring success in view. A littlo roar when vicious things are brewing may spoil the brew, and oil up Virtue's wings; a. little kick when statesmen are pursuing false gods may bring tbem 'round to better things. A little sense may m'ako us seem a fountain of wis dom if- you keep your tongue 011 straight; a littlo debt may soon become a mountain, and crush you down b&lt;> i neath its galling weight. The littlo J tilings malco life a joy or nuisance; if ( you ignore this fact, when you are gray, I you'll realise you were a blooming goosi> since vou let the best of all thincs eel away. -Walt M;vsoii
