IMPRISONED IN ft GLACIER. Some thrilling experiences onco be fell Mr. Frederick Chsmberlin whilsfc ho was exploring the Alps. In the "Wide World Magazine" he writes of aa adventure that befell him on tho after noon of a September day when ho was descending tho snow-slope of a moua tain:— Suddenly I found myself in front o? 0, particularly nasty serac, or ice-ridmy, that gave very littlo foothold. Tho surfaco wa3 not broken and crumbly", but just smooth, treacherous ice. How ever, I was not goms to be daunted, b» J wormed mv,jvay up, and was about to descend the other side, when witb ot! t warning my feet shot from under me, and I started careering down the slope at break-neck speed.

FOR THE FARMER. SUMMON SALT AS A FERTILISE" Certain plants, like certain trees ire more adapted to bralusli grouut (bau others. Beetroot and mangel \v In tel are descended from a wild plan which grows naturally an the sea shore; aud tliey still preserve the an eestral love of Bult. It has been cai culated that a crop of mangels will remove as much as 901b. of common gait (chloride o( sodium) from tht soil. Apart lroin certain cultivated plant! which have a special liking for com mon salt (chloride of sodium), It hat been found in garden practice that tin general effect of the addition of com tnon salt is to stimulate leaf-tissue Light applications of salt to a kitchen garden make the leaves of lettuces, cabbages, and garden plants generally, ° thicker and more succulent. The same effect of salt Is strikingly seen In the :ase of Manatoka and other seashore plants. Inland their leaves are thin, near the sea they are thick and juicy.

Tho island is about twelve acres in extent, and oil a rocky pinnacle a hundred feet abovo tlio brine, with not a drop of fresh water to lx> found, mid whore there is nothing to excite the cupidity nr com mercial instinct of man, the birds gulls, pelicans, herons, and cormorants by the thousand—make their, home. The island can bo seen at a distance of ten miles, rising like a "cocked lint" out of the sapphire of the inland sea. Tlio birds are utterly fearless. Pro tected as tliey. are by the laws of the State, they have had little cause io fear man and his death-dealing weap ons. It is necessary to use the greatest cave to avoid stepping on the nests and eggs of tlio tens of thousands of seu fciri that have established their rook cries on the islet.

THE BLOATER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 15 January 1914
THE BLOATER. It is generally known that a blont-or is a complete herring slightly salted and smoked; but few people are-aware that the origin of this artklo of diet was accidental. A Yarmouth hwring curer, when leaving his promises one night, after all his work peoplo had gone found a quantity of good herrings which had been overlooked. Fearing they would bo spoiled if left as they were, lie sprinkled them with salt and Kung them in his "smoke house," in -which oak-billet was then being burned. The next morning it was evident that his experiment had been successful. Ha began to specialise in this direction, an example which was speedily followed by others, until the fame of the bloater was established in the land. The kipper is a split herring cured in smoke. The late -Mr. John AVoodger, of Neweastle-on-Tyne and Yarmouth, was the forlunato discoverer of this me thod of treating the herring. The process of producing the red herring is analogous to that of the bloater, the 1 differenc...

And when he dies, go plant bim deep, That naught may break his dreamless, sleep, Where no rude clamour may dispel' The quiet that he lov...

DON'T "ROOK" THE PRINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 15 January 1914
DON'T "ROOK" THE PRINTER. An advertisement is a paper man's marketable commodity, and it is quite as much so as a side of bacon, a pound of butter, or a ton of fiour. No man can afford to give away the things he sells for a livelihood, and the man who does so in order to get business is generally in a bad way. Don't try to put the paper man "in a bad way." But exercise a little human nature. Support him; he needs encouragement and support; but do it in the legitimate way. If the printer gets a few pounds* worth of printing orders from you, he Is not in a position to give you a pound's worth of advertising for nothing. And you have had value for the printing already. Go into a grocer's or draper's, for £3 worth of goods, and the grocer's man or draper will not throw in gratia £1 worth of something else that you may ask for. Try him, if you don't believe us.

HINTS TO FRIENDLY READERS^ You want to see the local paper a suc cessful Institution. Talk about it; wherever you go. Mention It to the tradespeople with' whom you do business. If they don't advertise in it, try and induce them to do so. If you are induced to buy anything from what you have read in its adver tising columns, mention the fact to tha tradesman. Don't lend your paper to any person who can afford to become a subscriber, but is too mean to support local enter prise.
