Cranks Who Hide Money. IIANK-'.VOTES CONCEALED BOOKS. Among the eccentricities of the rich, the passion for always possess ing enormous sums of ready cash is surely one of the most extraordi nary. A former X-ord D.vsart one ilny asked a compaiiion-ii'irse to go to town and get a cheque cashed for him at the Bunk of England. When she was ready to start the peer sat down and wrote out a cheque for £100,000, and told her to be sure and sec that she got one note for the whole amount. The cheque was duly presented, and the J!ank, having satisfied themsel ves ns to the nurse's authority for making such a request, suggested that* .a clerk should accompany her and hand the £100,000 note ill per son "to his lordship. After having done so " the clerk told the peer that only three such notes were in existence.

THE ORCHARD. NOMENCLATURE OP KRinT. PARTICULARLY THE AIMM-lii. "What's in a namo ?" To the or dinnry individual it m»y be a mutter of very little conee'jucnee what nn apple is called b>, and provided it in sound and fit to oat., one name may be as good as another ; but to the nurseryman, grower and dealer it. often bccomes a matter of great im portance. 'At present we find that ninny of what we maj term the standard va rieties of apples are known nn lcr difierent names in the various States and even in different districts often have local names. This leads to con fusion, and often to serious misun derstanding. For instance, the Scarlet NonparicI is lnown as the Winter Pearmain, Scarlet Pcarmain, and sometimes as Cox's Orange Pippin ; also the Gol den Heinette is called Adam's Pcar main, Summer Pearmnin, King Pip pin, etc, and many other varieties are known by various names.

INFLUENCE OF FATNESS OF COW AT CALVING. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 8 May 1914

INFLUENCE OF FATNESS OF COW AT CALVING. An examination of the records of official tests with Holstein-Friesian cows by one of the American experi mental stations showed that the fat content of the milk for a short time at the beginning of a lactation pe riod may have little relation to the real avernce fat content of the milk produced by any particular animal. Investigations with cows of various breeds and in different conditions were carried out, and it is concluded that, providing the cow is underfed after calving, the percentage of fat in the milk for the first 20 or 30 days of the lactation period is in fluenced to n considerable extent by the fatness of the cow at cat vine. In some cases this influence appeared to extend- to n certain degree for at , least three months. The tiller of the soil is the most necessary man in the world. 1 He feeds and clothes the world, an<i with- . out him the world would go naked and starve. Apparently ho is the only I person in the wor...

."HORNLESS CATTLE. Significant progress lias been nm<Ic during the past ten years in estab lishing polled types of horned breeds of cattle. Polled Durhams, Polled Heretords, and Polled Jerseys repre sents the most notable achievements in this line of breeding. Beginning witli "sports" or naturally hornless animals, the polled character has been fixe*l in these three types to an extent which ensures its reproduction in an overwhelming majority of ma tings. Polled blood has become so potent, that, although obtained through "sports" from breeds with horns, its polling efficiency is thor oughlj dependable, even in CSFCS where the elimination of horns is met with stubborn inherent opposi tion. j A strong and growing demand (or ? polled types of homed breeds is ex pressing itself in the operations of farmers, feeders, and breeders.
