CLEAN OUT THE MENTAL OOB Sam Walter Foks uses rhyme to read farmers a very usofin !&lt;»sson, and one that should be heeded more than it is : "Yes, clean yer house, and clean yer shed, And clean yer barn in cv'ry part ; But brush the cobwebs from.yer head, And sweep the snowbanks from yer heart. , Yes, when spring cleanin' comes aronnd Bring forth the duster and the broom, But rake yer loggy notions down, And sweep yer duaty soul of filoom."

6,000 Miles of Scallops to make Sea Food Cheap. In these days, when the cost of liv ing is so high, no little importance attaches to the discovery nn en tirely new source of food supply almost as one might say, at our very doors. Tt is just a matter of scallops. But these shellfish are mighty good to eat-and just think, if you please, of a vast nnd continuous b&lt;»d of them 2&lt;>o miles long and averaging thirty miles in width. Such bods have been found not fnr *»lT the At lantic coast on our side nnd over sea. One exploring vessel, the CJrainpus, mine across one bed-a molluscan deposit undreamed of while hauling a deep-sea net along tlie bottom just to see *hat there might be to catch. A quant ily of scallops was brought ihe sur face. This excited immediate in terest, and the net-a kind of dredge on runners-wns lowered again und again, fetching up on each occasion from one to three bushels of the bivalves. The bed s«'cms to con tain more scallops than ever wore...

Farmers Should be Students. | It in a well known fact that noth I ing stands still lor any great length of time ; things either go forward and improve, or go backwards and deteriorate.

If a doctor would attain f to the highest pinuacle of his profes sion, ho does not practice medicine as it was taught and practiced 100 years ago, but he reads and studies the new ideas as advanced by known leaders and experimenters of to-day.

CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 16 January 1914
CHAPTER XII. The patience oI Sir Peter had turn ed to impatience, and this had grown to the lury of exasperation. The names of Lord Chester and Mildred Moore were coupled together every where in London. If the shameless intimacy were not soon broken oH, Sir Peter saw the crumbling of his hopes for Edvina : and not only that he saw before him an angry duke, and the" loss of the prestige of that duke's friendship and business. Sir Peter felt in great measure respon sible for Lord Chester-accountable to the duke for his moral and physi cal welfnro. He could stand the scant dal no longer. The time for action had come. Sir Peter sat in his private office at the bank one afternoon in an unusu ally idle mood. 'He was "waiting. A messenger entered. "Lord .Chester to see you, Sir Peter," he said. "Ah ! Show his lordship in." ' Sir Peter rose from his chair and took a few steps around the room.' He was nerving himself for tho com ing battle, which lie felt would be a severe one. Lord Chester ...

CROP ROTATION OF PERMANENT BENEFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 16 January 1914
CROP ROTATION OF I'KltMANENT BENEFIT. R. C. Doncghue, Prof, of Agronomy, North Dakota Agricultural College. While all the causes of low yields of the small grains cannot be remov ed, practically all that are of imme diate importance can be controlled in large measure by a well-planned system of crop rotation. When crops are grown in rotation and proper tillage methods are followed, they will suffer less from dry weather than when they arc grown continuously. Crop rotation is usually of more im portance than the methods of tillage used in this respect, although both are important. In most rotations more roughage is produced than can be disposed of by the work stock on the farm. Hence, more animals must be kept and more manure produced to return to the land to keep up the supply of organic matter. The organ ic matter in the soil may also be maintained by growing grasses and legumes, (clover, lucerne, peas), in the rotation. Inasmuch as not enough manure can be produced on a farm to ke...

There's a gap inviting occupation, and not one, but every thinking man of India, bus the sime opinion-that someone will walk in unless Australia is capable of tilling tliut gap.

"Made in Australia" SENSELESS PREJUDICE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 16 January 1914
" Made in Australia " SENSELESS PREJUDICE. Ia connection with the boot) in dustry, special prominence was given at the sitting o£ the Inter-State Com mission on Tuesday to tbe existence of j an absurd and unreasonable prejudice against Australian-made goods. A well-known boot manufacturer, Mr I Harkness, who was under examina tion, told a story "vh'ch effectually showed how senseless is this prejudice. He said he had seen a customer being served in a city boot ahop. Several pairs of imported boots weiepasBed to bim, but none suited. The shopmen then tried him with an Australian boot-without disclosing its place of origin. In fit, style, appearance, work manship and price, the exigent cus tomer was at last suited. He con cluded tbe sale, put on both the new boots, bad bis own old ones wrapped up, and was walking contentedly out of the Bhop when an idea oocurred to him. He turned and remarked, " I suppose they are imported.'' On being informed by tha honoafc oaloamad that tliey were o...
