Obeyed Instructions. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 April 1914

Obeyed Instructions. The wit of a sharp retort often makes the reader forget. its imperti nence. Such a rebuke was that which Sir W. S. Gilbert adminis tered to an o' erbearing man at a dinner party. After the dinner, Gilbert w\as standing in the hall, waiting for a friend to join him, u hen a pomrpous and somewhat near-sighted gentle m1an, mistaking him for one of the servants, exclaimed : "Call me a cab " Gilbert looked the stranger up aatd down ; then he observed, quietly, "You're a four-wheeler." "What do you mean, sir ?" splut tered the other. "I-low dare you, sir ?" "Well," Gilbert retorted, "you asked mne to call you a cab, and I couldn't call you 'hansom.' " There are 1000 vessels which cross the Atlantic Ocean regularly every 'mnonth. The teacher was explaining the tenses. ''Now, Willie," she said, "suppose I should say, ' I have a million pounds.' What tense would that be ?'' "That'd be pretence," answered Willie.

The icar of a Kensington church was leaving the church after choir practice, when a lady stepped ,,t of the aisle and asked him in agi tated tones to come with her at once to an address near :.-. "A gentlehman is dying there," she said. "Ile is extremlly rc(n1'erC1eYd about the state of his soul, and anxious to see you before he diies." The clergyman followed her to a waiting taxi-cal) (says the " Paily Express"), and a short drive roenal the corner brought themn to :t tO:,n sion. The lady, who seemed to, ,e extremely agitated, urged the vicar to hurry. lie splrang out of t he cab, rang the bell, and a butler appeared. "Does Mr. - live here ?" "Yes, sir."

President Wilson, at a dinner In Washington, said of a statistician : "His figures are so precise that one inclines to doubt them. He is like the -Americarn sugar planter in Ha waii, who, taking a friend to the edge of a volcano, said : " 'That crater George, is just seventy thousand and four yeru old.' " But why ,the four ?' George asked, " 'Oh, I've been here four,' was the reply. 'It was seventy tho'. sand when I cames.'" .4

THE GARDEN. INFLUENCE OF CROSSING ON YIELD OF TOMATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 April 1914

THE GARDEN. INFLUENCE OF CROSSING ON YIELD OF TOMATOES. In regard to the experiments with tomatoes at the New York Agricul tural Experimental station. Mr. Wel lington has found that a crop of hy brid plants of the first generation give a larger yield than either of tbh parental forms, or of the succeeding generations after the "break." Th' results suggest and seem to warran' the use of first. generation seed only if the main object be the production of a heavy crop. Of course, it en tails all the extra care and troubl that artificial fertilisation means : but Tomato fruits, as a rule, pr( duce a large number of seeds, which. so far, is some compensation against the extra trouble. Tomato seeds re tain their vitality, it is said, for from three to seven years; therefore it would only be absolutely neces sary for seed-growers to raise every third year a sufficient quantity t, cover the needs of a three-year sale It would appear to be a simple matter for raisers of tomato seedl to selec...

THE FARM AND DAIRY. SILOS AND ENSILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 April 1914

THE FARM AND DAIRY. ------+---- SILOS AND ENSILAGE. Silage is fast changing the methods of feeding all classes of live stock. One of the chief advantages of silage feeding is the cheapening of the ra tion of the dairy cow. The succulent silage is much more desirable than the dry, woody butts of the fodder, or even hay with its large amount of crude fibre. Three dairy farmers, whose testimony is here quoted as representative of a number of others, say :-"I am satisfied that the in crease of production of milk and cream has paid for my silo this year. My cows have milked the past winter just as if they were on grass." "Si lage saves one-half in the feed bills, and over one-half in the amount of hay eaten." "I find silage excellent for dairy cows. Our cows milk as well in winter as they do in summer ;in fact, they usually gain when we com mence to feed." Besides the cost of the ration being reduced, there is also a reduction in the cost of producing a given amount of butter-fat. This i...

WHAT WE WASH WITH. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 April 1914

WHAT WE WASH WITH. One of the few inventions that are not ascribed to foreign ingenuity is that common household article soap. It is said that the ancient Britons were the first makers of soap, and that the Romans, when they con quered England took the invention back with them to Italy. Most of what we wash with is made from fat, but abroad there are natu ral soaps. There is the soap-root of Spain, the soap-berry of Chili, and the bark of the Peruvian soap-tree. At a little town in Mexico, soap ac tually takes the place of copper coin age ! In another part of the same South American Republic the inhabi tants eat soap, finding much nourish ment therein. The French term for soap, "savon" by the way, owes its origin to the town of Savona, in France, where vast quantities of the material .were formerly manufactured. 1924..( Dip brooms in boiling soap-suds for* a few minutes weekly, and they will last much longer than they other wis do, 1924.
