Steinitz on Chess [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

Steimtz on Chess stein itz was champion of the world for many years, and was undoubtedly one of the greatest players that ever lived. His views on cliess are of much interest. He says:— "Some of the foremost thinkers have spoken in the highest terms of chess as an intel lectual amusement and as a mark of great capacity, and some of the greatest celebrities of different nations have devoted time and attention to the study and practise of its intricacies. Goethe, in his translation of he Nepheu de Rameau,' by Diderot, endorses the opinion of the celebrated French philoso pher. who describes it as 'the touchstone of the human brain!' Prince Bismarck, in dis paragement of mere rheiorical ability, once remarked that great orators, as a rule, can neither play a good game of chess nor whist, which shows that this pre-eminent statesman thought more highly of the capacity for play ing games of skill as a test of acumen than lie did of oratorical faculty. President Grevy, of France, a great l...

By "UTILITY " QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS G*M. (Spring Greek).—The complaint is known, as partial paralysis. There is no certain cure, but painting the vertebrae of the neck and back with acetic acid will sometimes effect a cure. The acid may also be applied to the shanks and joints of the legs. Marion (Doo-sn).—Young turkeys should do fed at first with a mixture composed of two part biscuit meal, two parts oatmeal, and ; one part hard-boiled egg. This should be j mixed well, working it through a fine sieve to "break it down fine. It can then foe moist- j ened with a little new milk. This food may j toe used for five or six days, and <the egg can then be dropp-ed out. A little pollard and green food chopped fine should be sub stituted. Hulled oats or broken wheat may ■be given when the turkeys are a. fortnight old. 2. Acute diarrhoea and general debility caused the death of your half-grown turkeys.

MEALY-BUG PEST METHODS OF ERADICATION [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

MEAIjY-BUG PEST METHODS OF ERADICATION Vines growing- near residences on trellises are often seriously injured by* mealy bugs. An English experf who has given the matter special attention asserts that there are many and vari ous ways of transmitting mealy bug to vines. He knows of one that can be relied upon to get rid of the pest again, and that is a thorough scrubbing of the rods with warm water. " It must be thorough, every crack and crevice being found out by the bristles of a scrubbing brush, and unless this is done subsequent dressings of strong mixtures are of little avail. There should be no skinning the rods, and hard scraping about the spurs. Doubt less this severe, most unnatural, though time-honored custom, does lay bare many lurking places of insect pests, but stripping off the bark has (he considered) a most injurious effect upon the vines from which they never recover, unless the ! rods are gradually replaced by bark clothed younger ones. ! Warm water, with just enoug...

FOWL TICK HOW TO ERADICATE. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

FOWIi TICK HOW TO ERADICATE. The fowl tick has in the . past few years been almost eradicated from our State. There may be, however, a few places where it is still to be found. " Numerous enquiries," states the Poultry Expert of New South Wales, " have' been received by the Depart ment's Poultry Expert on the subject of combating fowl tick, and there is little doubt that it is a rather serious drawback to poultry keeping in some of the hot, dry, inland districts. The Ex pert will shortly have ready for issue a comprehensive bulletin dealing with this pest. In the meantime he offers the following advice to poultry keepers in infested districts. "To the successful control of any pest a rough outline of the life history is - necessary. It should be understood that the tick passes the first Jfew days of its life upon the fowl, where it will be found under the wings and parts of the fowl not covered with feathers. There it develops to a certain size and strength, after which it leaves th...

NOTED BULLDOG A RECENT IMPORTATION [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

NOTED BUJjLDOG A RECENT IMPORTATION Silver Wizard, the noted Eng«» lish bulldog-, recently purchased by. Mr M. P. Bauld, oi Malvern, comes from the world-famous "Silverdale" kennels of Mr F. G. Rollings, Birmingham, a breeder whose exportations, in recent years, have taken the championships of America, Canada, Germany, Austria, iSweden, Denmark, India, and South ; Africa. . " Many people hold an entirely errone ous impression concerning the bulldog— the sweetest-tempered, most reliables, and affectionate! dog there is. His looks are really the worst part of him, but to the expert there is real beauty in his ugliness, two of his most typical points being the wrinkled face and the great, protruding underjaw, which give to him the much-coveted sour expression. .The average Australian has really no idea of the high prices paid for high-class English bulldogs, especially by American buyers. Only a month ago a young dog, named White Mar quis, was sold to an American fancier for 2000 guine...

ROSES FOR SCREENS METHOD OF ARRANGEMENT [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 17 January 1914

ROSES FOR SCREENS METHOD OF ARRA^iG-EMENT One of the most effective ways of displaying: rambler roses is that of growing them as a screen to provide a background to an herbaceous border or to hide any objectionable feature in the garden.: In this way the full beauty of the habit and flower of any variety can be seen. By adopting this method of training the plants a more complete screen can be obtained in a - shorter period than with any other system, short of transplanting evergreens. The varieties of a free branching habit (states the English "Journal of Horticulture") as the Wichuraiana type, that are almost evergreen are preferred to those of the character in growth of Carmine Pillar, Climbing Caroline Testout, or England's Glory, which are too sparse of branching growth. A yard apart is a reasonable distance' to plant. If a close system of pruning is adopted the first year and the shoots are cut down to within one foot of the soil the succeeding, growth will be more vigorous and...
