ARTIFICIAL MANURING. Tiio whole object of artificial manur ing being to supplement the deficien cies of tho soil, it is highly desirable that a farmer should ascertain by trails in tho field what is the actual amount of increaso which ho obtains from tha application of the manures he purchases A few carefully-inado ex periments will teach him what his laud and crops aro really in i.eod of. Should ho use sujierphosphate as well as nitrate of soda for his wheat? What dressing of tho nitrate is most econo mical? Is superphosphate alone suffi cient for his turnip crop, or should ammonia or nitrate be employed as well? What is tho smallest quantity of superphosphate sulficient lor tho crop? Will it pay to use potash salts for his seeds, his pasturo, or his potato crop ? These and many other ques tions can only be answered by trials on his own fields. On tho farmer's knowledge of such facts will depend tho economy with which ho is able to use purdkased manures, which aro by somo wastefull...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 15 January 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosine.") Velvet neck-bands and satinilounces are two of tlio crazes of tho niomont. A narrow black volvet ribbon with a pendant, or a largo baroquo pearl is much worn with white blouses for morning wear. Somo peoplo have oven adopted tho fashion of wearing the flat wrist watch mounted on a black vel vet ribbon-bracelet, and this eighteonth century fashion makes a quaint con trast with a tailor-niado dress. Thoro is a new garment coining into vogue, which is partly scarf and partly pelo rine. A pretty one was in wide mate rial, the border of which consisted of a blanket stitch in thick Berlin wool, workod lirst in black, and then over that in white. The ell'eet at a distance was not unlike ermine. Not for many a year has lace played so interesting a part in the modes as it has this season. The effort to widen tho silhouotto at least a little, has had something to do with tho matter; for llouuces have been brought irom the imbo of discarded things, and what ...

PEARS BECOMING SCARCE. During the last few years the de mand for perfect pearls has been so great that now tho supply on hand is practically exhausted, and the loading jowellors of Europe fear that for some time thero will bo a dearth of these costly gems. "It is true," says M. C. Ohincolle, an expert, writing 011 the subject, "that in the thousands of pearl oysters which are being constantly brought up from tho deep, many beautiful pearls aro found, but even if twice as many wero found the supply would still bo insufficient. The prioo of pearls has increased greatly of late, yet tho more thoy cost tho more eagerly are they sought. "Naturally, tho demand is greatest for those which are faultless. A jew eller who has a find row of symmetrical pearls can be sure of selling it at a high price. A few days ago I saw a necklace containing 45 pearls, of which 12 wero black..

PREPARATION OF THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 15 January 1914

PREPARATION OP THE SOIL. A thorough preparation of the soil is ono ol the chief factors in successful management of the soil. Soils that are badly run down by continuous crop ping may bo restored to their original stato of productiveness by the use ol fertilisers, hut tho cause of small re turns is not always duo to a lack of fertility. Many onnditions may pre vail which prevent the plant attaining a healthy development. Better con ditions, obtained by drainage, liming, etc., may be necessary before the plan can avail itself of further addi tions of plant food. Tho more per fect tho condition of tho soil is made the bettor will plants bo able to attain tho highest development; there will, then, bo greater conversion of food into crops. Our soils are tho medium in which wo can at pleasure convert pot ash pkosphorio acid-nitrogen into crops; therefore, is _ it not advisable to keep tbo medium in tho highest state of ef ficiency?

TOO WELL KNOWN 10 NEED AN "AD." m " o This idea that you have lived so long in town that everybody knows you a no you don't need To advertise is a mistake. "Ibis very indifference to advertising, i indifference to doing business as it is I doc in this day and age, is what has I enabled the catalogue or mail order I nouses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns.

Of course he cannot afford to get out- a catalogue as thick as a Bible, but he can keep an advertisement in his local paper, and see that it is changed, thus keeping new bargains continually befor the public. »le should also have a mailing list, and send out a circular letter at least once a month.

HEROISM IN HOUSEKEEPING. So many talents are wasted, many enthusiasms turned to smoke, bo many lives spoiled for waut of littlo pa tience and endurance, for waut of un derstanding and laying to heart the meaning of "the present"—for want of recognising that it is not the greatness or tho littleness of this duty nearest hand, but tho spirit in which one docs it, which makes cne's doing noble or meanl I can't think how peoplo, who have any natural ambition, and any sense of power in them, escape go ! ing mad in a world like this, without tho recognition of that.
