HOW TO MAKE A MEASURE OF LIQUIDS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 23 May 1914

HOW TO MAKE A MEASURE OF LIQUIDS. A very simple metlxnci for making a container for liquors which measures oil', say, a quart at each time the li quid is poured,' is to take a large cy lindrical can," and put in a false bottom which holds about a quart between this and the bottom of Iho vessel. At 0110 side of the false bottom, is an opening w.liicli connects with the main body of the can, and on the other a tube leading to the "mouth of tlio vessel, so that the mouth connects in reality only with the bcforci-meutionud space. This space .being filled, with the liquid, we tilt the can down so as to keep tbe level in the main chamber below the orifice, and prevent further entry to bottom chamber, so that the bottom ohamber now holds just one quart, and can be emptied at tin? mouth, of the can. -Scientific Amen- | can. :

MY LIFE WAS DESPAIRED OF, hut through taking the doctor's advice I live to-day. He advised my wife to get CLEMENTS TONIC for me, as 'there was life in that medi cine^' When he said, 'life in Clements Tonic,' they were the TRUEST WORDS HE EVER UTTERED. I would have been in my last resting place only for that grand, medicine. Had my wife paid £40 for the bottle she would have had good value. 1 have seen a lot. of testimonials about CLEMENTS TONIC in books and papers, but what 1 find fault with is that every writer has utterly failed to give a proper value of that medicine.

SHARE YOUR ROSES. A. tourist brings this pleasant story about Andrew Carnegie from Scotland: At Skibo Castle Mr. Carnegie had a beautiful rose garden. There were thousands of red and white and yellow roses always blooming there, and the villagers were free to saunter in the garden paths to their heart's content. One day the head gardener waited upon Mr. Carnegie. • "Sir, I wish to lodge a complaint," ho ventured. "Well?" and the master waited. ""Well, sir, I wish to inform you thab the village folks are plucking the roses in your rose garden. They are de nuding your rose trees, sir." "Ah," -and there was a note of deep satisfaction in Mr. Carnegie's voice, "so my people are fond of flowers, are they; Donald? Then you must plant morel" 1

AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE Reviewing the subject of agricultural science in Great Britain, the outlook, says Professor Wood, is distinctly hope lul. New fertilisers were coming into the market, as, for instance, the >'ar ous produots made from atmosph <ric nitrogen. New varieties of farm crops were being produced by the PU in breeding Institute at Cambridge, ; nd elsewhere. Finally, the soil surveys on which tha colleges had seriously em barked would assist in defining the areas over which, such results were ap plicable. It only remained for 'hose who were responsible for the oonduct of field trials to increase the accuracy of the results, and the steady accumula tion of a mass of systematic and scien ctifio knowledge was assured.
