A BRAW COUNTRY. Boy's Alleged Essay on Scotland. The following, stated to be by a Bunbury schoolboy, Is reprinted from the "Southern Times," Bunbury, West Australia:—■ "Seoyand is a braw wee land on the north of England. It has water nearly all round it, and whisky over a large part of it. "The population Is about four and a-half millions, including Mr. Andrew Carnegie. It has a peculiar language . of its own, and if one can pronounce it coherently it is an infallible test of sobriety. It possesses consider able mineral weaun, but very little of It finds its way out of the country. "Gold, has at times been discovered in certain districts, as well as in the pockets of certain natives, but in both cases It has been found difficult to work. The best-knosvn exports of Scotland are rlarry Lauder.and Scotch whisky, though sufficient of the latter is retained in the country to satisfy the needs of home consumption. "The national dress of Scotland is the kilt, whicli is a kind of short pet ...

WIVES WORTH WINNING. Well-Known Novelists on Ideal Womanhood. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 11 April 1914

, WIVES WORTH WINNING. Weil-Known Novelists on Ideal Womanhood.. Tastes, of course, differ, but men appear to want a -wife who never,ex isted except in romantic dreams. She must be a model of ail virtues and possess no failings. She must be "so pretty that we are always proud, and so good that we are never uneasy; a woman who wears well and looks her 'best in two-year-old gowns; who ap plies the adjective 'important' in re lation to our work, our food, and our desire for unfettered .holidays; who laughs at our small jokes and pre serves a marble face when we are scored off by others; with whom we have the massively comforting sensa tion that she will never recognise the plain, staring fact that we are not brave, not wise, not clever. The words quoted are those of that popular novelist. Mr. W. B. Maxwell, and "the astounding, incredible thing," he concludes, in liis comments on the sort of woman a man likes, "Is that, wanting all that, we sonetimes get it." A truer note, perhaps, is ...

P.cmlers in Conferencs. Tine Lions in the Way. [Contributed.] To the many the outcome of a Pre miers' Conference is always apt to be disappointing. Before the floodgates of talk are loosed the papers refer light-heartedly to "questions 01 which all thoughtful citizens are,agreed." For example, nobody who counts denies that Australia's vacant spnees should' be filled with the right stamp of scttbr, that the lowest rate of interest obtain able should be p;iid on the £27o,0C0,0)0 which the States owe, that a uiifor n railway gauge would mike for national safety and efficiency. But when detail is reached difficulties of three k'nds arise :—First, the (immcial ; second, the party ; third, those due to the State dread of Commonwealth aggression. Unfortunately, it is difficult to sur mise how the paity spirit is to be laid even for a day. Libor f jreed a hide bound system on the-Commonwealth.

THE WHOLE TRUTH. By Vernon Ralston. William Arnott came out ol tlio oITl ces of Sollenberg, Stelntlial and Com pany in despair. Ho had had recom mendations 'from half-a-dozen people when he came from Canada to London. He had expected that the keen London business men would have jumped at the chance he put before them. Tnree of ti>e six Arms had declined tu see him at all. The great Jacob floth stein, the famous promoter, had heard him for five minutes and thou had re marked: "IThis is wild-cattery, laein youig friend. That sort of luslnoss wo do not touch." AmoLt had told him wrathfully that he was so used to floating shady com panies that he did not know a sound business proposition when he saw it. And now Sollenberg, Stelntlial and Company had frankly laughed at him. Sollenberg himself had got up in the midst of his explanations to telephone to a friend to meet him to supper at. the Kits the next evening, and then had turned to Mr. Arnott. "Nothing doing.

WASTE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 11 April 1914

WASTE. By Wm. North. A great manufacturer of table mus tard once said that he would not mind making the public a present of all the mustard they could eat so long as he was paid double for all they wasted. Sellers of garden seeds say much the same, and one could go on multiplying examples of the same sort of thing. Too good an example might be found in many a bird room, while the owner of a solitary cage bird is almost invariably wasteful. Some waste is inevitable, so far es the birds are concerned, though ac toual and total waste may be saved by giving all the sweepings from the cage or aviary to the poultry, assum ing any are Kept. Apart from that, however, a great deal may be done to keep down the seed bill, and the surprising tiling is that so few fan ciers give the matter a thought. j Seed mixtures are the most fruit ful cause of waste and, save in a large aviary, their use is not to be re commended. Every bird has its likes and dislikes, and given a dish of seed, it will flng ...

"An Old Man's Darling." WIDOW'S CONFESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 11 April 1914

"An Old Man's Darling." Widow's Confessions. There was some amusement in the Richmond Court on Saturday when Caroline Price Lind, aged 43 years, proceeded against her husband, Gens Peter Lind, aged 80 years, on a charge of having left her without means of sup port. Mr J. L'Estrange appeared for complainant, Lu1; defendant did not attend the court. Caroline Lind said thatshe now resided at 3, M 'Gowan-street, Richmond. She was married to defendant at a city matrimonial agency in April, 1901, and they lived together until two years ago. When she first met de fendant he was a photographer, but after the marriage he sold his properties and retired from wo;-k. She had not, however, benefited in any way by the mar riage. Defendant had placed everything he had beyond her reach, and she had been com pelled to work to support herself. The marriage was a sccond ven ture for both of them, but her iiusband had all the best of it. He was a widower with one daughter and she was a widow with two d...

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 11 April 1914

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. To err is masculine; to forgive fe minine, Marriage is never a failure—'but the contracting parties frequently are. All men are borne free and equal, but most of them spoil it by getting married. If it is anything lie has paid to hear the average man believes it is true. A woman n,ever has much use for a man who she can't teach to be jeal ous. "Widow's weeds" rarely inter fere with the growth of a future crop of orange blossoms. If a man can't persuade some wo man to lead him into temptation he •gets in of his own accord. U's surprising how many friends you have when you don't need them. There' is no crime on earth a woman wont' forgive a man if he tells her that her 'beauty drove him to it. Sometimes our paths are strewn with red rose leaves, sometimes with blue summonses. Women want .everything that man las, except moustaches and bald heads. Every dimple in a pretty girl's face registers a dent in a man's heart. Diplomacy is, in the main, the art of backing dow...

Rain is water in the act o£ falling from the clouds. It is im- - possible that they should look alike." "What 1 meant was that the sky looked like rain." "Equally impossible. The sky is the blue vault aibove us—the seeming arch or dome that we call the .hea vens. It does not resemble falling water in the least." "Well, then, if you are so thunder ingly particular,' it looks aB if it would rain."' "As if what would rain?" "The weather, of course." "The weather, as before stated, be ing a condition, cannot rain." "The clouds then, confound you! I may not know as much about it as you do, but I've got enough sense to get in out of it, and you haven't," said the mian, as he raised his um- . brella and walked away' in a huff.

BUYING NEW IMPLEMENTS. In buying new implements or ma chines, every man will toe guided <by his own experience or fancy. We find one man swearing by a certain make of machine, and the next neighbor by another malce, 'both claiming that their machine is best, and maybe it Is, ac cording to conditions and usage. In considering the various points in fa vor of uiiy machine, one should always lake into account tho accessibility o£ each part. One lias often spent an hour or more In trying to get at some part needing repair while tho actual job has only taken 10 minutes t.o ao. A Scottish farmer recently paid a visit to. a , South of England cattle show, and wlilla walking around got talking with a native farmer. Neither could well understand what the other said.

FEEDING FOR LARGE EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 11 April 1914

FEEDING FOR LARGE EGGS. Experiments have 'been carried out by the French Academy of Sciences, to test the effect.of feeding 011 the quality and size of eggs to find out how. to produce the biggest eggs. Three lots of ducks were -fed on flesh, fish and vegetables. Those fed on the flsli diet laid the greatesL num ber of, eggs, but they were of the poorest quality. The heaviest eggs were laid by those fed 011 the flesh diet, whilst those fed 011 pure graiu diet also beat the flsh-fed birds both for quality aud weight of egg. The American poultry raisers are agreed that the best quality and heaviest eggs are got from fowls fell on grain with a small percentage of tlesh food. Strange to say, they hold that the foraging of insect and such like life has a deteriorating effect on the quality of," the egg, and they are also unanimous in the finding that too much green food has a similar effect on the quality and weight of an egg. It is on tliis account that they agree that the Asiatic brown...

SIGNALS FROM MARS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 11 April 1914

SIGNALS FROM MARS. It has many times licen suggested during the past few years that the occasional peculiarities upon the face of tile planet Mars noticed by obser vers might really be due to powerful light signals, by means of which the .Martians were endeavoring to get in to communication with our own planet. Now SI. Lie Coultre, the distinguish ed Swiss astronomer who is at the head of the Geneva Observatory, In the researches he has made public concerning Mars, which he has been studying for the last live years, al though his language is very reserved, undoubtedly suggests that the Mar tians have been signalling to the earth. i During his long observations—70 nights were thus spent in 11)09—M. Le Coultre observed a series of "lu minous apparitions" of a 'bluish while color resembling the light of powerful electric arc lamps or searchlights. At first these lights appeared for seconds and then disappeared, but in the following weeks live intervals last ed minutes, and were always ...

PRECAUTIONS AGAINST MICH. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 11 April 1914

PRECAUTIONS AGAINST. MICH. Many devices Uavo come under uo tice from time to time to cope with the. mice pest in the wheat or hay field. Building the stack upon a raised platform does not answer the purpose; the mice •will climb up the blocks up on which the platform is built, run along underneath the platform boards, and so enter the stack. Enclosing the stack, as some farmers do, with lino j wire netting, will also ibe found un suitable, as the mice will climb up the wire netting. The only successful method to keep them out is to enclose the stack with a Tence of galvanised Iron, either plain or corrugated, about two feet high. Let the iron into the ground to a depth of-ofur Inches, and place it in a slant ing position, pointing outwards from the slack, all around it! taking care to leave no open space at the cor ners; it will he found impossible for mice to enter a stack thus protected.
