I f WHY PRICES HAVE RISEN. I "As -for tho world-wido inoreaso, I boliovo tho general explanation is to bo found in tho fact that wages linvo boon rising throughout tho world', es pecially among tho poorer classes and tho moro backward races—for exumplo in India, aud in Eastern Europo rliio result ifl that tho labor cost ot produc tion has been increased. Thin may havo boon overset to a limited extent by tho increased uso of machinery and tho widor oultivation of tho new coun* tries in tho world, but tho moro econ omic position of the poorer class through out tho world—their increased demand nnd increased consumption—i« tho root causo of tho riso in prices. It must bo remombored that theso classes are eat ing moro and dressing hotter than they did ten or fifteen years ago, and tho fact of this increased demand is tho causo of increased prices. It is, you nee, a question of supply and demand; wo always fjot back to that. To sum tl'a matter up m an instance, you can say * that becauso ...

"ON APPRO." [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 2 January 1914
"ON APPRO." Abuse of tho system of getting goods on approval is very widespread and is | helped on by the keenness of compe- I tit ion (wiites a London correspondent). ; Oae firm in the West End had a lady ; customer who was always asking for selection of dress goods to bo forwarded I for inspection, One day it would be ! half a dozen hats; another day a num- ' ber of feather rufflts, or a variety of fur coats. This went on so regularly and so littlo was bought that wo took tho trouble to havo her watched. She wa3 wearing tho things one after the , other, a day at a time!

CROPPING ON A SIX-COURSE ROTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 2 January 1914
CROPPING ON A SIX-COURSE ROTATION. Tho reason givon for adoptmp ft rota tion of crops is that each ulant in turn extracts one particular substance from tho soil and so exhausts tho laud for itself, but not for other plants; but this is quite a mistaken one. Wnon it is siated that nearly every soil oon tains material for about 100 crops, and that, in chemical composition, one soil does not d.ffcr very materially from another, ivo have to look for somo othoi reason for tho success achieved in ro- I tating tho various cr» p.*. 0..o of the | reasons is that sovorai ot tht compounds I of nitrogen are of no servico 10 the plant until they are oonv«rted into ammonia and nitrates, and t.ini is a slow process. Hence, tho amount nvail ablo at any moment mav be only n small fraction of the whole. Sunnany phosphoric acid and poiash must b brought into solution, and tho rate which iliey aro dissolved depends on thoir nature and physicai co daio.i Putting aside tho economic arr..ng.-nie ; of labo...
HOW IT FEELS TO FLY. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 2 January 1914
;:r -r; HOW IT FEELS TO PLY. The writer's Yst flight in an aero plane occurred in the autumn of 1910. He had previously made a number of balloon voyages, some of them of great jeugth, but the reader may dismiss from his mind any idea that ballooning is preparation for flying, or that tiie; sensations thereof bear any resemblance to those in motor-driven aircraft. Going down to Brooklands one chilly autumn day. the writer was introduced to Lieut. VVutkms, who at that time was flying a How.ird Wright biplane, a very similar macuine to the Farman. Suffering from an old-standing thirst lor a ll>ght, he jumped at the chance when one was offered to him. and eag erly climbed into tne passenger's seat behind the pilot. Behind the pas senger was the e. giue, and behind the engine the propellur; and away at the rear of all the tail of tho machine. In front, the edge of the elevatiag plane attached to the main structure by long bo ^ms afforded a small inter ruption in an otherwise unbroken ...

It had struck him that Heathcote might have had something to do with the present unhappy situation. If bo, his time was undoubtedly at hand. "A friend of yours, I understand," the Baron remarked. "I 'phoned him this morning, asking him to call at this time. It is fortunate he should be here, seeing that he also is mak ing arrangements for a trip of some duration to the States."

THEY CONVINCED HIM. Maxim Gorky, the famous Russian author, who was expelled from Russia some time ago, has not accepted the Czar's permission to return to Russia. ■There was another Russian writer who disapproved, of so many things in connection with the management of his country that he got himself into serious trouble -with the authorities. He persisted in pointing out the de fects, and at last they got so exasper ated that they decided to hang him, and he was duly sentenced to death by one of the governors he had criti cised. Three times they tried to hang him, and three times the rope broke. The worried hangman postponed the cxecutiou while he went to talk things over with the governor.
