LADIES' COLUMN. FOR MARRIED TOLK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
LADIES' COLUMN. FOR MARRIED TOLK. Society requires that, whatever their private relations, husband and wife face the world as a unit, harmonious, and with interests identical. One thing good form imperatively demands—that by no mischance, no loss of self-c ntrol, shall family dis cords be revealed to strangers, chil dren or servants. An uncontrolled voice is always unmannerly and undig nified. A readiness to give up in little things is the most tactical appeal pos sible for a return of courtesy at other times when the matter may be of im portance to us.

HOW TO FILE AND SET A SAW. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
HOW TO FILE AND SET A SAW. When Dan Rice invented the fa mous joke about "the greatest saw to saw that he ever saw," certainly the saw that he saw saw bore no sort of resemblance to many of the saws which we see saw. Saws that saw one's nerves as well as the timber, screeching and gnawing through wood instead of cutting it smoothly and sweetly—that make one's back ache to witness their operation, and heart ache to witness the useless expendi ture of power and labor in much ot the work performed by this useful and, when properly made, liled, and set, most effective tool. A saw is a series of cutters, ar ranged either in one line or in two lines, according to the work to be per formed; and all saws used in wood work (and it is such of which we speak) may be included in two classes —those w' ich cut across the grain and those which cut lengthwise of the grain. The latter class Jias its teeth or cuUers formed so as most to re semble a narrow chisel or plane bit. The teeth of the former ...
THE PIGGERY. MONEY IN PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
THE PIGGERY. MONEY IN PIGS. The rearing of pigs was the sub ject of an interesting paper read by Mr. F. Gamlin recently before the n.embers of the Otakeho (New Zea land) branch of the Farmers' Union. Pigs have the reputation of being dirty animals (said Mr. Gamlin), but if properly housed and looked after, are one of the most profitable, as well as the most interesting, products of the farm, and it is surprising how few farms have a really well-equipped pig gery. It seems where the pig is con cerned "any old thing will do." The extra profit will soon repay the small expenditure on a good comfortable house. For general requirements I consider that a building 301't. x 7ft., with wood floor, divided into four compartments, thrije for breeding sows, each lilt, x 7ft., a rail placed about 10 inches out from the wall and the same distance ubove the floor is necessary to prevent the sow from overlaying her young. The remain ing space, 12ft. x 7ft., I use for a fat tening pen, each compartm...
TAKE A HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
TAKE A HOLIDAY. Run away from home for a few (lays when there is a good opportun ity. If you are the home-maker, the family will rejoice on your return, and there will be something new to talk about and a wider outlook on life for yourself. T1 e nose that is kept constantly at the grindstone grows sharp. "■No, my friends," said the candi date, making another effort to arouse enthusiasm in his hearers, "what do we need in order to carry this con stituency by the biggest majority in its history'.'" The response was immediate and enthusiastic. "Another candidate!" yelled the audience.
CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
CHAPTER XII. Mrs. Bellairs very naturally spent a most uncomfortable evening. v It is true tliat she was able to write a re gistered letter to Ralph and to send oft the eight hundred pounds, consist ing of Isaac Mordecai's dirty notes. She took it herself to the post-office, and was glad to find that she was in time to catch the Australian mail. For the present she could do no more for her darling. Could she ever do anything more for him again? She felt not. Her head ached, her cheeks were flushed and, going into her bed room, she desired her inaid on no ac count tn disturb her. Then she turn ed the key in the lock, hoping very earnestly that she might get some sleep. But, alas! it s far from her. She was almost wild with worry and shame, and the longer she lay on her 'Ded the more terrified she grew, ■Mrs. Bellairs was not a bad woman, but undoubtedly she was a weak one. As she lay on her beautiful pillow, tears iilled her eyes and rolled down her thin cheeks. What was she to do? H...

'Mrs. Bellairs eontiuuetl her gloomy and hopeless meditation. By-and-bye she heard Sheila tly downstairs and the sound of the motor-car driving away. She felt nearly mad. Her heart thumped within her. The thought of the miserable couditioti of her 'boy, and the contrast between /him and Sheila gave her untold agony, ith the exception of the ser vants, she was now practically alone in the house. Her husband would lot ■ come home for several., hours, and she had plenty of time to write to her . unfortunate boy. She hud no money to send him. All her things were paid for by her hus band, and the few jewels that were left iu the shape of rings and a dia mond pendant she dared not part . with, knowing that Peter would 1 e mark their absence.

AGRICULTURE. THE FARM MANAGER. What He Should Be. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
AGRICULTURE. THE FARM MANAGER. What He Should Be. This is what the farm manager should be:—Systematic, persistent, and methodical, but ever cheerful and hopeful. Ever learning something more about nature's powers, and keep ing in view the definite aim for re sults. Sucecssful farm-managers, like managers of great corporations, are men of ability to think logically and reason correctly; they are men of self control, endowed with self-confidence, but willing to learn from others. No man can succeed in a great enterprise without making use of information given by others. One may arrive at conclusions, and achieve results In a different manner from anyone else o£ which he has knowledge, but at the same time he has used information given by some n6. Farming informa tion of use now is of recent origin; new facts being ascertained every year, honce the successful farmers are those who not only work diligent ly on their own farms, but make use of all the information they can get from others...
GREEN MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
GREEN MANURING. The object of green manuring is to furnish a supply of organic matter, and to collect nitrogen from the air. To get. the best results from green manuring, it is necessary in the first place to supplement it by tlio appli cation of fertilisers. The necessity for the addition of nitrogen is depend ent upon the success of the green crop and on the requirements of the following crops. For instance, if the green crop has grown well, potatoes and cereals on good or medium soil should not require the help of any additional artificial nitrogen. Follow ing a poor green crop, it may be ad visable to give oitlier potatoes or cer eals, especially oats, the benefit of a top-dressing of lcwt. nitrate of soda. Mangels following a green crop should have a light dressing of nitrate of soda. A small dressing of superphos phate is advisablo to Increase the effect of tho green manuring. For roots and potatoes the soil should re ceive lVfccwt. to 2c\vt. per acre; cer eals a little less, ...
WALLOWING TANK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
WALLOWING TANK. The pleasure that a pig gets out o£ wallowing in shallow water is taken advantage of by some breeders to keep tl'em tree from vermin. A tank is made of conveni nt size. It Is ad visable to have it under cover—a shel ter root of iron, enough to keep the sun off it, will do. The tank is par tially filled with water, and the sur face of the water is covered with kero sene oil. When the pigs wallow in tliis they got sufficient oil on them to destroy vermin. When necessary, the oil and water are replenished, and the tank, of course, requires occasion al cleaning. To prevent the forma tion of mud-holes, the ground sur rounding the tank should be surfaced with concrete.

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
NOTES. The match between Berringa and Scarsdale on Saturday was of the most friendly character, and it is to be hoped this feature will character ise the whole of the season's mat ches. P. IIugh93 secured a lucky goal on Saturday. It was a real "drib bler" through the posts. Berringa's captain wants to bo firm on the point that the players keep their places, and not take rov ing commissions as some players did on Saturday. If this matter is not attended to Berringa cannot expect to succeed. To-day's Association match is Scarsdale v. Linton. Berringa having the bye to-day, they have accepted a challenge to play Cressy on the Berringa Re servo this afternoon. A good game is anticipated. As Berringa has a few byes dur ing the season, and also with a view of keeping the players in form, the best two out of three games are to be played by Tunnel and Trades and Fancy teams for a trophy presented by Mr J. O'Donnell. The following rules have been adopted in connection with t-io Scarsdale Di...

tiUiiiuliy. FOOTBALL. ASSOCIATION MATCHES.'. SCARSDALE V. BERRINGA .. An evenly-con tested match, a friendly match, and a match worth locking at., was the general vordict of the contest between Berringa and Scaisdalo, which took place on S.it ,• urday ut the Berringa ,Recreation '• Reserve. It was the first association match o£ the season, and supporters oihboth eides were numerous.' The • teams were fairly evenly balanced With, regard to weight. Tho game was a willing one, and was fought ' to a finish, Berringa winning by the nhrrdw majority of 2 points. Tom Gallavan captained Berringa, and NWman Carnegie had charge of Scarsdale, and who, having won the toss, elected to take advantage of the westerly wind blowing across ihe oval. They forcod the play, and shortly after the bounce of the ball a Berringa player was too affection ate by embracing Carnegie, who was awarded a free kick. He essayed a ."placer" for the ffoal posts, bnt the sphere fell short. Ho sooi\ got the ball again, a...
FEATS OF THE BLIND. Sightlessness Not Necessarily a Handicap to Success. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
FEATS OF THE BLIND. Sightlessness Not Necessarily, a Handicap to Success. It is really wonderful wha.t the 'blind can learn to do for themselves. Quite lately, a blind, deaf and dumb girl wrote to the secretary of the in stitution where she had been trained to tell her that she was staying in the country, and was greatly enjoying the games of tennis and croquet. It is well known, of course, that El-1 len Keller is similarly handicapped, yet she is one of the most learned women in the world, and her books are not only read in America, Britain and the Colonies, but are translated into many foreign languages. She has declared that if she met a person in tiie Desert of Sahara whom she had met but once before, she would know instantly who it was by their charac teristic scent! In New York a blind barber is do ing extremely well, and it is said that ho has quite as few slips of the razor as the average barber who has all his faculties. In fact, anything which re-1 quires great delicacy of...
