Kaiser's Airship Station. lHeligeland, the tiny islnand in the North Sea which (:Germany proposes to turn into a great station for her airships, is one of the most cur ious islands ir the world. Its towering cliffs, for instance, are aInrgely artificial.

On those parts of the coast where the red, porous rock of the.genuine cliffs has been too badly honey con!ded by the n seas, ,hundred of tllou sands of tons of cement have been used to strengthen the face. iHeligoland has long beer an im portant naval centre.

Salt Soil for Crisp Radishes. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 10 April 1914
Salt Soil for Crisp. Radishes. In many a section of this, and, in fact, other countries where the soil is fertie, it has been difficult in recent years to growl as fine crisp radishes as were grown in for rier years. The trouble arises from the fact that a long hair-like worm or maggot eats into the radish and spoils it for Use. 'IThese worms are not considtered dangerous, but they :are ruining the radish crop in many localities, and until recenily it was a serious question how to rid the soil of these pests. They are white in colour, and about the size of a thick hair ui5 to that of a heavy knitting needle, and they vary in length front one fourth of ar, nrI?u to one inch in length. They burrow in the flesh of the radish, and in places almost ent irely consn rae the root. They are less troublesome along the sea shore, and some of the sandy gar (lens near the sea level have no radish wornms at all. This is evi dence they do not thrive in salty ground. Experiments have shown that whe...

HOW TO MAKE A FLY-TRAP. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 10 April 1914
HOW TO. MAKE A FLY-TRAP. An ingenious dairyman has con structed a home-made fly-trap which he has found effective in ridding his place of business of the pests. The trap is made from a box lift. log, ift. high, and Ift. wide, both the sides and the top being sawn out and covered with wire netting. The box is then raised about a foot from the floor, and the neck of a large funnel is run up through the bottom of the box and adjusted tight, so that the mouth of the funnel is about an inch from the floor. A saucer of molasses or something sweet to draw the flies is set under the mouth of the funnel, leaving room for the flies to go up the funnel and into the box. As soon as the box is filled the flies are drowned, and the process repeated. "Now this," said the barber, hold ing up a pink bottle, "is a splendid thing for baldness." " Thank you," replied his victim, coldly; "I have all the bantess I re quire."
