SIZE OF SHEAF. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 16 May 1914
SIZE OF SHEAF. There can be no set size for a sheaf, the size must be regulated accord ing to conditions. For Instance, in wet districts, or where the crops are late in maturing, the small sheaf is the safer, as the sun and wind aro better able to penetrate through the sheaf, and so minimise the risk o£ si.routing or moulding about the band. Again, by making the sheaves on thf small size, stacking can be commenc ed a day or two sooner. On the oth er hand, however, the large-sizeii s! eaves have their advantages. First, it is more economical on twine; sec ondly, much time is saved in stook ing and stacking; thirdly, a fair-sized sheaf will stand up against winds in the Ftook better than the small size.

CROPS FOR FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 16 May 1914
CROPS FOR FODDER. | The time seems opportune to di I rect the attention of farmers to the : necessity of planting fodder crops, ) and for their subsequent conservation | a.; a provision for stock and feed dur j irg the winter. The weather this season has been very dry, and in al most every district absence of rain has been severely felt. The man who does not take this wise precaution of providing winter feed will have a grim i realisation of his lack of forethought i when he finds his dairy herd, and other stock, languishing for the food which Nature withholds during her • unpropitious seasons. It is, however, quite within the pro vince of the farmer to conserve suffi cient fodder for his stock to tide over the winter. There are so many ex amples of the splendid results from silos that it is hard to conceive why the practice of making silage has not ' become more general throughout the State. When we have the managers of but ter and cheese factories reporting "the satisfactory incre...

FLOCK MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 16 May 1914
FLOCK MANAGEMENT. i It' strong, healthy and vigorous lambs are wanted, extra care must be- given to the ewe ilock from time of mating to time of lambing. During . this time the ewes should be steadily ! gaining in llesh. It is not desirable 1 that the ewe llock alter mating should over have to become the scavengers of the farm; that business should be leu for store sheep. The ewe flock is too valuable for that work, for it is from this flock that the future feeding lamb is obtained. One often hears of heavy losses be ing experienced by sheep breeders through ewes being frightened by dogs and other causes, and this brings tc mind reasons that ought to be up permost in the ininds of all those who have charge of lambing ewes. Among them there is one precaution that should never be absent, and that Is tbis: That the ewe flock should never be allowed to be rushed by the shep herd's dog, nor should it be hurried when being driven, nor under any cir cumstances should it be given an opportu...

CHAPTER VII. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 16 May 1914
CHAPTER VII. Bellairs was essentially a man of action. That very night he saw Ito- , bert Holman, one of the leading pri- ' vate detectives in London, and placed in his hands the inquiry into the at- I fair of Goldstein and Sheila's pearls, 1 assuring him that he, Bellairs, would pay the £2000 on the day the pearls were brought back to him uninjured; but he was careful to caution Mr. | Holman that an expert in precious i stones must examine them in order I to see that no exchanges had been ' made. j Holman undertook the job, and ex- I ecu ted it with great dexterity, and Bellairs had the satisfaction of re covering Sheila's pearls at the loss of I .C2000, which he had beeu saving to- j wards his wife's future needs. He put them back carefully into his safe, ' and then set liohnan to discover j where Ralph was hiding. The miser able youth was found without much ! dilliculty and brought back to Sunny side by Holman, who, however, by the K.C.'s request, refused even to j leave the room...

When Mrs. Bellairs met her son he had contrived to smarten himself up and looked much less wild and shabby than 011 the previous day. She made him join her in the tonneau of her motor-car, and there she slipped the money into his hand. His face lit up with an amazing joy. "Oh! mother, you are a brick!" he exclaimed. "Is it as much as I asked for, mother?" "Yes, Kalph; there are fifteen hun dred pounds in notes in that bunil'.c." "Moth!" exclaimed' the you'hg man, "you really are a wonder! How ever ■ did you get it?" Mrs. Bellairs became very white. "Don't ask me, Ralph. 1 can never tell you—never. This is a secret 'be tween you and me." "Does my stepfather know?" "No, Ralph; and you must never breathe the subject to him. If you do you will kill me. As it is, I have been almost killed. I never, ne...
III. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 16 May 1914
.III. It was but little more than a year from the time we have alluded to ,that Julia—not the bright, animated Julia wt before have known, but the sallow, U'.nguid Mrs. Merton—slowly entered her cousin's apartment. "Heading, as usual!" was her salu tation. "What have you there, Grace? —a stupid-looking book enough. 'Aids lo Reflection.' Then you are in the very mood for a visit from me, for I w ant your aid to some very serious reflections I have just been indulging in upon the world in general and your own beautiful self in particular." ' So saying, Mrs. Merton laid aside her rich walking-cloak, and disposed herself very comfortably for a morn ing's chat. "Do you know, Grace," she contin ued, "that 1 have serious thoughts of writing a novel called 'Grace: A Mys tcry'? I think it might take." j "What do you mean, Julia?" j "I mean that you, innocent as you j look, have for the last year been as I great an enigma to me as—as—I am , to myself"—and Mrs. Merton's coun ; tenance, which C...

Amonyst the mines. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 23 May 1914
Hungst (De lues. At the south drive in the 1000 feet level at the New Jubilee 2 feet of payable stone hi9 been encoun tered. A fair stream of water is comiDg away, which is regarded as an indication of a good body of ore ahead. The yield for the month, 116oz 7dwt of gold from 450 tons of ore shows an improvement. The position at the William's Fancy shows no change. The vari ous rises at the No. 7 level are pro viding good supplies of milling ma terial. It is ollicially stated there is no alteration in the mine to account for the recent collapse in value. In the Birthday Tunnel, the east crosscut oil No. 3 level south, and close to the break, has gone through 4 feet of stone. There is still stone in the face. The quartz carries tra ces of gold and mineral. The yield for the mouth; 138oz ldwt. is well up to the average. The east drive of the Berringa Prospecting Association has entered quartz country, and some nice look ing mineralised veins are showing in the face. For Children's Hac...
