AMUSING INCIDENTS. A Unique' Subscription. Dean Hole told a capital story of John Bright. A witty and persistent clergyman was urging Mr. Bright to subscribe towards rebuilding his church, and got the natural reply that, as a Quaker, Bright could hardly be expected to-give for the purpose. The clergyman replied that the building must be pulled down first, and that perhaps he would like to sub scribe to that part of the process. Ac cordingly, Mr. Bright subscribed £1'

A Wise Precaution. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 30 May 1914
A Wise Precaution. Two seamen—an Irishman and a Scotsman—had been breaking leave and had been ordered to receive ten strokes of the "cat." They had pre viously held very good characters, and, taking this into consideration, the captain said that if they wished to wear anything to protect their backs a little they might do so. The Scotsman replied that he would like to have a strip of canvas on his back, and this request was granted. "What would you like to have, Pat?" asked the captain, turning to the second seaman. "Shure, sir," was the reply, "if it's all the same to you, I'd like to have the Scotsman ou my back!"

A Persuasive Tongue. At school in Cornwall, Mr. Rudyard Kipling, never a brilliant scholar, was known as "Gigs" (i.e., "gig-lamps," meaning spectacles), and was esteem ed because he won the confidence o! an austere spinster who Kept, the lo cal tuckshop, with the help of three cats.

GROWING MANGOLDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
GROWING MANGOLDS. Ill choosing the situation for man golds a*, sunny aspcct should bo se lected, als they love the warmth, and well-rooted will withstand heat as well as drought much better than tur nips. Mangolds are not subject to ■blight like the turnip, and on this ac count are invaluable as a stand-by in case of a failure in the turnip crop. When manuring for mangolds, the far !' mer could greatly improve the yield of his crop by adding a little nitrate of soda, which can be applied with or at the time of seeding or as a top ! dressing. The course to he taken, however, must be determined accord ing to conditions, the chief of which being the nature of the land. For in stance, if the land is of an open, por ous nature, the method of applying it as a top-dressing at comparatively short intervals is probably most econ omical, as there is little danger of the nitrate being washed through into the subsoil before the plants have a chance to make use of it. But on land of a retentive ...

WONDERFUL POWER OF THE WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
! I WONDERFUL POWER OF THE WIFE. No married man ever prospered in tho true sense of the word without the co-operation and Help of his wife. If she unites in mutual endeavors, or rewards his labors with an endear ing smile, with what confidence will he resort to his daily toil, meet diffi culty and encounter danger, if he knows that he is not spending his strength in vain, but that his efforts will be rewarded by the sweets of home! Solicitude and disappointment enter the history of every man's life, and he is only half provided for his voyage if his associate is fit only for hours of pleasure, while for his months of darkness no sympathising partner is prepared to cheer and coin fort. The worthy wife can wield a power far beyond computation, and the happy home, free from drink, is the scene of strength and support. ■ For tho cantie wifie's smile Will tho cares o' life beguile I And banish care and toil I Frae our ain fireside.

TREAT YOUR GRASS WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
I TREAT YOUR GRASS WELL. There is no department of farm work calling for better treatment than the young grass. A top-dressing of from one-and-a-lialf to two liundred . weight of superphosphate would not only help to fill up the head of graiu on what is generally the last crop of the rotation; hut it would also im prove the quantity and quality of the resulting grass. Coarse grasses and weedy herbage would disappear un der its influence, and when the crop was cut such an amount of early gra zing could be had from it that the manure would he more than repaid. A dressing of superhosphatc causes the free development of white clover and other leguminous plants, and these make its use remunerative. The condition of the young grass is a point demanding the close attention of every farmer who wishes to suc ceed. Subsequent crops depend on heavy carrying capacity. If an even growth of grass is obtained, covering the ground nicely, the practical man controls the situation, and can make anyth...

DON'T ATTEMPT TOO MUCH. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
DON'T ATTEMPT TOO MUCH. Much is lost in attempting too much. It is wise to undertake only what you can reasonably expect to ac complish rather than try to accom plish more than you have capacity or facilities for doing. Concentrate your efforts. To adore a man is not enough; there is nothing the poor darling silly animal gets tired of so quickly as be ing adored. One has to keep him 1b terested.

No; it Is the shadow of a bird in its flight—away flies the bird and there is neither bird nor shadow. ?
