II. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 16 May 1914

II. True to his intention, Mr. Merton the next day made his formal pro posal, first to Mr. Clavering, who re ceived it with pleasure, secondly to his daughter, who recoiled from it w'th mingled surprise and disgust. Mr. Merton could scarcely credit his senses—he refused! he, the owner of hundreds of thousands!—it was in credible. Filled with indignation, smarting with all the agonies of a wounded self-esteem, he hastened to his con fidante, Julia, who smoothed his ruf fled plumes with infinite adroitness. Her flatteries fell like balm upon his lacerated vanity; her gentle glance beaming through her half-closed eyes, the gentle pressure of her dimpled hand—all told with wonderful effect, until at last, to Mr. Morton's infinite surprise, one bright morning he is sued forth from Mr. Annesley's quiet dwelling the plighted husband of his daughter! How it had come about, Mr. Mer ton vainly ransacked his memory to tell—he certainly had never dreamed of such a thing. But Julia had, and frcm...

WASTED YEARS OR JULIA'S DISCOVERY. I. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 16 May 1914

WASTED YEARS OR JULIA'S DISCOVERY. I. "Confusion worse confounded" had reigned ail day in the handsome estab lishment of Sir. Clave ring. .Upholster ers had been busy removing furniture and - arranging ornaments; gardeners were bearing in exotic plants and towering pyramids of flowers; confec tioners, French cooks, bakers, vint ners had, in their turn, haunted the precincts; and now, at eight in the evening, there was a general lull, broken only by the exclamations of tiie troop ol worthies who were tumbl ing over each other in their zeal to give the last finish to the arrange ments for a splendid entertainment. With an aching head and limbs "both weary and worn," the mistress of, the house was busied with her hasty toilet, while her daughter, the beautiful Grace Clavering, for whose especial advantage all this trouble and expense had been incurred, having completed hers, had thrown herself, perfectly exhausted, into an armchair before her boudoir lire.

WHY SILAGE IS ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 16 May 1914

WHY SILAGE IS ESSENTIAL. There are several reasons for the popularity of silage. More feed can be stored in a given space in the form of silage than in the form of fodder or hay. There is a smaller loss of food ma terial when a crop is made into silage than when cured as fodder or hay. Corn silage is a more efficient feed than corn fodder. An acre of corn can be placed in the silo at loss cost than the same area can be husked and shredded. Crops can be put in the silo dur ing weather that could not be util ised in making hay or curing fodder. More stock can be kept on a given area of land when silage is the basis of the ration. There is less waste in feeding silage than in feeding fodder. Good silage properly fed is all consumed. Silage is very palatable. Silage, like other succulent feeds, has a beneficial effect upon the diges tive organs. ' Silage is the best and cheapest form in which a succulent feed can be pro vided for winter use. Silage can be used for supplement ing pasture...

THE ARAB'S SIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 16 May 1914

THE ARAB'S SIGN. During the Egyptian War of* 18S2 the warship holding the high road to Jerusalem at Kantara, in the Suez Canal, was surrounded by an atmo sphere of hostility. The one and only hotel in the place seemed to be the re fuge of ail the denizens of the desert. A careful watch had ever to be kept, the men were under arms at night as well as day, wild shouts and rushing of feet, strange bugle calls and whist ling were heard at night; the fresh provisions coming from Port Said every night were rushed by the prowl ing Bedouins on the. banks, the whole or part of them taken. At time3 the desert seemed to be alive with small parties of Arabs on the prowl, always at a safe distance, but nevertheless near enough to get on the men's nerves. This state of things continued for a month, when suddenly an event oc curred which changed the whole as pect of the situation. One night the proprietor of the ho tel came on board wringing his hands with grief. An important operation had to be p...

FOR THE FARMER. THE ROTARY DISC PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 16 May 1914

foe t6e farmer. THE ROTARY DISC PLOUGH. ' The rotary disc plough possesses the following advantages over the mould-board implements: — 1. owing to the construction and movement of me discs the draught is greatlv reduced, and the capacity of the implements considerably increas ed Z. Their great 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 ot' the soil to re ceive and retain moisture at a season when, under ordinary conditions, sat isfactory mould board work is Im practicable. !{. The work is more cheaply done. The discs are so placed that one disc lorces the broken soil sideways against the next one, pulverising it and performing the operation of pack ing, thereby improving the seed bod 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 have the...
