INTRODUCING QUEENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 13 November 1907
INTRODUCING QUEENS. j Before attempting to introduce queens to a hive make sure that the colony Is queenless. The circumstance that there may be no eggs or larvae In the hive, and that you cannot find the queen, is not (states an exchange) sufficient evi dence that she is absent, although this state of affairs points that way. But during the early part of the summer there should be either brood or eggs of some kind if a queen Is present. ? There should be eggs or brood until the latter part of summer. In the early autumn queens very often stop laying, and shri vel up in size, so that a beginner, might conclude that the colony Is queenless. In attempting to introduce a new queen, of course, one meets with failure, and the new arrival Is stung to death, in all probability, and carried out to the hive entrance. If one cannot find either eggs or larve at that season of the year, and if the supposedly queenless colony builds cells, on a frame of unsealed larvae it may be decided that the...
EDWARD GRIEG. A TONE-POET OF THE FJORDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 13 November 1907
EDWARD GRIEG. f A TONE-POET OF THE FJORDS. Disease has taken lbs toll of our great musicians. Beethoven, greatest of all, suffered, from the greatest affliction in ; his last yean that can overtake any \ composer— that of total deafness. When he conducted the crowning work of his genius— the Choral Symphony— be could hear neither' the music nor the ap plause, and 86(118117 had to be turned round in order to acknowledge the. ?? plaudits of his audience. Mozart, that sweet singer, died a miserable death uexore ue cumpieiea nis tteqiuem. And now the tale of victims is added to by the name of Edward Grieg, the man who painted his' own ragged Northland on canvases of lovely eound. Grieg was attacked at an early age by pneumonia, and he never afterwards properly recovered from its dread effects. A man .fragile by nature, he was rendered doubly so by the injury done to his lungs, and it is probably due to this that he leaves behind him comparatively few mementoes of bla great musical power...
THE DAIRY INFLAMMATION OF THE UDDER. RECOGNITION AND TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 13 November 1907
[?] z^xxIaaocAtion W the udder. RBCOGNrFION AND TREATMENT. ' Inflahimatory trouble in .the udder af ter parturition may be classed under two main heads: — (1) Superficial or ex ternal to the gland tissue proper; (2) deep-seated, Implicating the actual sub stance of the milk glands. Tbe former is a much less grave af fection than tbe latter, and, assuming that the Inflammation does not extend ioto the substance of the gland, the pro cess soon runs its course, coming to an end either by resolution, a gradual sof tening and dispersal of the hard and swollen portion without the formation of matter, or more commonly by a gather ing and the formation of an abscess which more or less quickly comes to a head, bursts, and, after the discharge of the matter it contains, rapidly heals. The whole process rarely lasts more than a week or nine days, the 'cow manifests little or no constitutional disturbance, and the lessened milk yield is perhaps more tbe result of the pain and discomfort caused ...
BEES FASTER THAN PIGEONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 13 November 1907
BEES FASTER THAW PIGEONS. It is not generally knoan that be?s are swifter in flight than pigeons— that U for short distances, fays a writer In 'The Reader.' Some years ago a pigeon fancier of Hamme, Westpha'la, laid a wager that a dozen bees liberated three miles from their hives would readi home in less time than a dozen pigeens. fT*hn #inmnBHfnl-e hum «y4imn n-(»i«» *.?'??

THE BEEKEEPER RENEWING COMBS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 13 November 1907
i&-mi:i8w&&i RENEWING COMBS. Examination In spring reveals the fact that there are many old arid blac.i combs which the apiarist wou'.d like to exchange for new bars fitted with foun dation. But Id many cases these old combs contain honey or pollen, whl:h it is not advisable to waste. Tbe old - black-looking combs should be removed before supering time. If they are In fairly sirong colonies which have pro lific queens, there is nothing which gives Euoh gratifying results as new bars of foundation; the workers appear to revel in working them out, and tbe queens nil them with eggs as rapldiy as they are built, until the whole of tbe surface of the bar is sealed wUh brood in one com- ! pact mass. On exposing the frames one | will see how many are well covered svitb bees and how many have brtod fn them. If there are two seams of bees beyond the outsides cf '.he comb; with brood In them, remove the outer comb on one side, and part the brood combs so aa to Insert t...

HOW TO MAKE TELEPHONE POLES PICTURESQUE. ?5V-r ' some weeks past (writes the ?Westminster Gazette') the aesthetic soul of fipping has been aroused to fury by a threatened Invasion of the National Telephone Company.

DEPORTMENT. SAVOUR VIVRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 13 November 1907
[?] '?':^:''-^lBj^m^m^^-y^''-^'f According to 'the 'Journal des Debate,' the art of deportment lies on the point of death. Its very name is no longer a guarantee against the brutality of fate. A valiant attempt to save It has there fore been made at New York by thirty six ladles and the Rev. Marsh Warren; they have founded an Academy, and Academies confer at their pleasure the privilege, of Immortality. The formulae of the art of living va ried slightly in the Europe of the olden times. For a long period one of the signs by which a well-born person, was recog nised was the sneeze. Under -Louis XXV. if a grandee deigned to sneeze ell his retinue had to make a deep bow. It was old-fashioned to eay 'May God bless you!' Good form prescribed that you should only Inwardly utter benedic tion. When offering or receiving an object it was the correct thing first to take your gloves off, then to kiss the hand that offered or received.

TYPES OF DRESS. NATIONALITY DENOTED BY CLOTHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 13 November 1907
TYPES OF DRESS. NATIONALITY DENOTED BY CLOTHES. At the present time London is being visited by men from every na tion in the world, and tho various types of dress to be met with in a walk from Ludgatc-circus to Trafal frar-sqimrc afford food for mental re flection. A man's dress, states the editor of the ' Tailor and Cutter,' invari ably proclaims who and what he is; it is an index to his character, his tastes, and his nationality ; and without making a too abstruse study, it is possible to indicate those features which proclaim tho nationality of tho wearer. Of course, there is an aristocracy of the nations who are difficult to distinguish except by some peculiar ity of face or figure. Their clothing is refined and tasteful, and leads one -to believe that their garments are London made, as they are free from those glaring peculiarities ? which characterise the products of otter countries. .. ..-? The American's garments are igener^ ;«lly- 'quite .two' .sizes t6o large vtor ' him, t...

itHE^iLD JtoMl^ WHAT 'AMERICANS FIND IN '??-?? KNOT.AKn The Rev. Samuel M' Chord Orothsrs writes in the September number 'of the ' Altantic Monthly' on -what an American travelling in Bngland sees there. Every American, according to Mr Crothers, ' no matter where his family originated, likes to think of England as the Old Home. It satis fies his historic sense and gives him w« iwuug uia* ne is re-visiung we 'green graves of his elres.' An Englishman whom Mr Crothera discovered or invented is .made to complain that to the American visi tor the Twentieth Century England, with its rapidly growing cities, its shifting population, its radical demo cracy, its socialistic experiments, its mode] tenements, its sew universi ties, its ferment of fresh thought, simply does not exist. The American visitor demands his toric England and will see no other; ignores the political divisions and divides the islands up into the Scott country, the Shakespeare country, the Wordswbrth country, the Dic ken...

ELECTRIC LEAP. SUBSTITUTE FOR ANESTHETICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 13 November 1907
XXJ3CTB1C LEAP. SUBSTITUTE FOR ANAESTHETICS. M. Stephane Leduc, the eminent pro fessor of the School of Medicine at Nantes, has recently discovered a method of causing 'electric sleep,' which, It is claimed, will in the 'near future replace chloroform nnd other nuojsthellos in all surgical operations. The discovery proceeded from tbe study of the effects of Intermittent currents and from the knowledge that skull and brain offer but little resis tance to the currents. For a human being the current is of thirty-five volts applied Intermittently in full strength for minute fractions of a second. Two electrodes are applied to the skull in a special manner, the points of applica tion being first carefully shaved. M. Leduc has made scores, of experi ments, says 'La Revue,' on dogs and on himself. All were successful. The npiilicsition of tlie vurraht on the head is not dangerous. No ill effects follow, f*ven when .the experiment lasts for i -hnurs ,„ ' ? : ? „ ? 1 ? ^ The advantages of 'e...

EMPEROR'S GOD-CHILD. JOKE PLAYED BY THE KAISER. It is doubtful whether any . monarch in the world has so -fvvellttle god sons and god-daughters as Kaiser Wil helm of Germany. Little Fritx and Dora Hanckel, the two children of a Government official In the Department of Woods and For ests, are among this lucky band of chil dren. That the Kaiser, who Is supposed to 'remember everything,' does not for get is evidenced by the pretty story told In the German newspapers. He recently paid an official visit to the popular international health re sort, Baden-Baden, and, although his time was very fully occupied, he ret found a moment to call at the modest home of little Fritz and Dora, whom !i'e Interrogated as to their progress at school, and as to their ambitions in life. Fritz said that he wished one day to become an officer 'In the Cuirassier Regiment, that wears such a splendid uniform,' while Dora shyly confessed a desire to become an attendant in the Imperial household Laughing, the Ka...

He had quarrelled with his wife, and she de clared her intention of leaving him. This aroused his ire.

Shortly after three o'clock his wife was In the garden, and he followed her there. Suddenly exclaiming 'I shall be hung for you,' he. seized a hatchet and made a determined onslaught upon tbe poor woman.

PERILS OF PARIS. LADY ATTACKED BY FRENCH HOOLIGAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 13 November 1907
PERILS OF PARIS. LADY ATTACKED BY FRENCH HOOLIGAN. Street perils In Paris have again been exemplified by an audacious attack on and robbery of the Viscountess Eliza beth de Mazleres. The lady in question went alone to pay a visit to some friends in tbe Avenue Montaigne, in the evening. To wards midnight she left their house and walked to the Pond Point des Champs Elysees to take a cab. She was sud denly accosted by a man, who seized her by the wrists, and draeeed her un the Avenue d'Antin. In a dark spot un-' der the trees he let go her wrists and struck her four times in the face, so that she almost fell to the ground. She was literally paralysed with ter ror.
