STRAWBERRY PLANTATIONS. If these were not put in order in the auSumn the grou d should be cleared about the plants the site dressed with well-decayed dung, prick- -Dg the latter just under the surface o give a neat appearance. It is not recommended that the ground be dug nearly a spit deep with a spade between the rows, as this cannot be done without severing many of the roots. A fork is far preferable for such work.
BIRDS AND FRUIT BUDS. I It would appear that it is not always hard I weather that drives the finch tribe to feed on the buds of fruit trees, as at the present moment, with mild, open weather, and. one would suppose no lack of other food, close attention is paid and much damage done to gooseberry bushes, where these are not fre- quently dusted with lime or soot or sprayed with a solution of soft soap and petroleum. Perhaps the latter proves One of the most effectual measures, as it proves distasteful over the longest period.
MARCH AS A SEEDING MONTH. All agree that March is one of the best months for the purpose. Those who sow earlier are not always guided by absolute pre- ference, but rather by a wish to forward work, and to avoid being late. If spring corn can be got in in January and February the prepara- tion of root land in March and April is for- warded, as well as spring rolling and harrow- ing, and many other kinds of work. If, how- ever, tillage is delayed, as on this occasion, there is a rush in March which becomes a real difficulty. It is not so much that we believe very early sowing to be in itself necessary, but, rather, a confidence in the results of earlv sowing, coupled with a wish to get work I forwarded.
STOCK GEESE AND TURKEYS. In view of the fact that size plays a very important part in determining the value of geese and turkeys at the Christmas season it is necessary to hatch the birds early. To do this early eggs are, of course, essential, and these can be greatly encouraged by looking after the stock birds carefully, feeding them I suitably, and housing them in warm and dry houses. Towards the end of this month eggs may be expected, and these should be set without delay, allowing four eggs to each broody hen, for the natural method of hatching is preferable to the artificial. It pays to feed rather generously than otherwise during the next few weeks, and warm mash should be provided first thing in the morning and grain at night. A suitable mixture for morning use during the next few weeks is two parts barley meal, one middlings, one bran, and one lean meat.

CATTLE. Outlying cattle have had a hard time, and those who were anxious to lighten their stock have found it hard to get a bit of saleable bloom on them, and when offered for sale, the prices obtainable have been latterly far from encouraging. Dairy cows calved, or at the calving, have been in quick demand at prices in favour of sellers for some time back. Put- ting out the cows every day during the winter to the fields, so as to save the house-feeding, and too often permitting them to stand for hours at the gate, shivering in the cold wind, is not the way to make a winter dairy profit- able, although unfortunately it is largely practised. If attempted at all it should be with full feeding, with a variety of food, the bulky portion of it grown on the farm, and a comfortable stall, well ventilated, and yet free from draughts, in which the animals are either tied up continuously for the six months of winter and spring, and water given in the stall, or, if a small paddock is available, let out to water for the sake of a little exercise-but little more than out and in again. In this way a winter calving cow can be kept in full milk, but certainly not by keeping the cows in the fields all day during the winter in all weathers.

MR. JESSE COLLINGS' SMALL HOLDINGS BILL. The text was published on Wednesday of a Bill promoted by Mr Jesse Collings to provide facilities for the sale of land fo occupying ten- ants, and to extend the system of peasant pro- prietary in England and Wales. It is backed by Lord Willoughby de Eresby, Mr Goulding, Mr Bridgeman, Mr Mildmay, Sir Herbert Roberts and Mr Courthope amongst others. Under the Bill, a landlord and a tenant, on coming to an agreement for the sale to the tenant of a holding of which the former is the absolute owner, may apply to the Board of Agriculture, who, if agreeable to the trans- action, will have power to advance any sum up to £7,000. or, in special circumstances, X9,000, for the purchase price. Advances so made will have to be repaid by means of a purchase annuity calculated at the rate of t3 for every XIOO, and in like proportions for less sums. The Board of Agriculture are further given power to purchase any land they may deem suitable for "smaller holdings," do any neces- sary works, aDd sell the land again, in lots of from three to 100 acres, to persons who will themselves cultivate it. The Board are also I authorised to erect dwelling-houses on the holdings.
FEEDING SWEDES TO SHEEP AND LAMBS. Swedes are exceHent feed for sheep of all ages, but they are not so simple a diet as turnips, and require to be used with some caution. When sheep are first put on swedes is the critical time, as they are a strongish diet, and, unlike mustard and some green crops, con- siderable care should be exercised till the sheep get well accustomed to them. For a month or so the shepherd must watch the effect of the diet, and hoggets do best when they get a few daily for a fortnight or so with their white turnips or other food before they are turned on to the swedes permanently. There is no need for precaution of this kind when

The proceedings took the form of a private conference, at which the deputation placed their views before the

BLEEDING MANGELS. One would rather like to know how much a mangel bleeds when cut. We are told that it loses a vast amount of nutriment if a little slice is cut off the top, but generally the tap- root is broken during getting up. On looking recently at a number which had been cut at the crown last autumn, there did not appear to be much loss. Nature soon made a heal, so that sap ceased so flow, and one might safely f admit that had the crowns of a number of mangels been covered so that it was not dis- cernible which had been cut and which not, it would have taken a better judge than many from examination of the uncovered portions to say with exactitude which had" bled" and which had not. Examine those in your own heaps, take specific gravities, and calculate the loss per acre. Of course, there is some loss, but so far as loss of nutriment goes it is not of the importance often stated. To agree with the contentions of some, one might expect that a mangel had a heart pumping blood or sap continuously, and that arteries were cut but it has not, and has a natural power to very quickly sear over a wound. One does not advise cutting, it unnecessarily, it may do harm in other ways, but this idea of loss from bleeding affords another instance of excessive importance placed on a minor matter.

ALLEGED POISONING FROM SLAG Quite recently a case has been brought to notice in which a number of Jambs have died whilst put on to a field recently slagged. As in many other instances where sheep and lambs are under consideration, the first change from the ordinary course is taxed with being the cause consequently the slag has to bear the blame. Sheep losses, especially when they appear in an epidemic form, are very difficult to attach to the real cause, because the source is so frequently obscure but the now recog- nised effect of minute stomach worms, which until recently had avoided detection, are known to be the cause of a veiy large pro- portion of the ailments which bring about heavy loss. Whilst there is nothing that is obvious the obscure is not blamed, but often that which is obvious can have no reasonable possible chance of having had any influence; and in this particular instance the lambs have been at an age when they have been practically dependent upon their mothers, and to have taken in any material quantity of slag they must have been singularly active in obtaining it, especially as there has rarely been a day without rain to wash off the slag immediately it was applied.

LOCAL HOCKEY MATCHES. NEWTOWN v. SALE. This match was played on the Cunnings on Saturday week in delightful weather. The Newtown captain won the toss, and de- cided to take advantage of the slope and the sun. The game opened very evenly, each side attacking in turn. After 15 min- utes' play, Richards scored. Sale then pressed, and gave the Newtown backs a warm time, and Lloyd was called upon to save his charge. From a scrimmage in the circle, the visitors scored, the Newtown goal- keeper being unable to save, as he was unsighted by one of his own backs. From the bully off," Newtown nearly scored, but the visitors saved their goal at the ex- pense of three corners, and broke away to mid-field, the game remaining even for some time. Richards scored again for ^Ne.vtov.rn just before half-time. Play in the second half was very fast and exciting, each team attacking in turn, and both goalkeepers had to clear by giving corners. From a breakaway, Wilson scored for Newtown, and when time was called, the home eleven left the field winners i-,y three goals to one. Newtown was represented by:-Goal, R. M. Lloyd backs, A. J. K. Davis (captain) and A. Crerar halves, W. E. Watkin, B. Savage, and T. R. Ford lorwards, E. Norton, L. Morgan, T. P. Richards, R. A. Wilson, and R. Rawson. Umpire, D. Mor- gan (North Wales Hockey Association). The game was undoubtedly the most thrilling 'that has ever been seen on the Cunrings, and the spectators had an excit- ing time, as each team attacked in turn, and one did not know what might happen next. It was fought out in a most sports- manlike manner, and the whistle was sel-
Have You Friends over in Montgomery. Those of our readers who have friends over in Montgomery will read the following item with grc&t interest. It forms one of the topics amongtt our Montgomery neighbours. Mrs E. Williams, who lives at Princes-street, Montgomery, is well known and respected. She says I am very grateful for the benefit I have derived from the use of Doan's backache kidney pills. Some two years ago I was a great sufferer with pains in the back and loins; I was tired and languid and felt quite run down; I had no energy for anything. I tried various remedies in the hope of obtaining a cure, but in vain. Then a friend of mine viio knew my condition recommended me to try Doan's backache kidney pills. I did so, and almost immediately found relief. The weary tired feeling disappeared, the pains in my back grew less, and I began to feel vigorous and fit for work again. Since that time I have strongly recommended the medicine to others, and with the best results. (Signed) (Mrs) E. Williams."

NEWTOWN LADIES v. ABERYSTWYTH COLLEGE LADIES. Played on the Cunnings after the above match. Miss Wigley won the toss, and took tlie advantage of the ground and sun. From the bully off," Newtown pressed, and after several attempts to score, one of the forwards netted the ball in a scrim- mage. Aberystwyth then took up the pres- sure, but were soon on the defensive. Newtown had most of the play, and crossed over leading by one goal to nil. Early in the second half, Miss Flossie Evans scored a beautiful goal from the corner, and soon after Aberystwyth scored. After this, with the exception of a few breakaways by the Newtown forwards, the visitors kept up the pressure, and would have scored again but for the fine. defence of Miss Wigley and Miss Davies. When time was called New- town were leading by two goals to one. L 11 The^home eleven was:—Misses Gill, F. Evan* R. Davies, R- Williams, L. Wigley (captain), E. Ford, E. Woosnam, M. Woos- nam, N. Edwards, W. Bebb, and Doris Evans. Umpire, D. Morgan (N.W.H.A.). The game was not so fast or exciting as in previous matches between these teams. Perhaps this was due to the heat, which all the players seemed to feel. There was very little between the teams on the day's play, but perhaps Newtown were slightly better in front of goal, although they missed any chances. The outstanding player on the home side was the Captain (Miss Wigley), whose defence was fine, especially in the second half. She showed good judgment in changing places with Miss Flossie Evans at half-time. The change undoubtedly led to winning the match, as the latter player scored the winning goal. Miss Davies also played well at back. Miss Ruth Williams was the pick of good half-backs, and Misses E. Woosnam and D. Evans were the best of a moderate line of forwards, which lacked combination. Some of the forwards should learn to keep their places, and not wander about the field and hamper their colleagues.

Mr. Evan Roberts. .¡-- INTERESTING PARAGRAPHS AND A STRANGE STATEMENT. Several paragraphs have recently appeared in the press in reference to the health and prospects of Mr Evan Roberts. The follow- ing are taken from the current issue of the 'British Weekly':— Mr Evan Roberts, the Welsh revivalist, is still at Leicester, where he has been for nearly four years the guest of Mr Penn- Lewis. It has recently been stated that Mr Roberts was likely to resume work again in Wales, but this appears to be incorrect. A representative of a local paper has had an interview with Mr Penn-Lewis, who said that although his guest was well and strong physically, he had not yet fully recovered from the strain of the revival. Mr Penn- Lewis is the borough accountant, and takes a deep interest in religious work he is greatly helped by his wife, who is an ac- ceptable platform speaker." "The statements made recently that Mr Evan Roberts, the Welsh revivalist, had fully recovered his health, and that he in- tended to return to Wales to take up his religious labours again, are not quite accu- rate. A Daily News' representative saw on Saturday Mr Penn-Lewis, with whom Mr Roberts has stayed since his breakdown four years ago at Leicester, and was in- formed that though Mr Roberts was much better physically, he had not fully recovered from the strain that the revival work en- tailed on him. It was possible that before long Mr Roberts might go to Wales on a visit to some friends, and that while there he might address a meeting. If he did, however, he would take rest again before addressing another meeting, and would not undertake a series of meetings on any con- sideration."
Stitch in Time. There is an old saying, A stitch in time saves nine," and if upon the first symptoms of anything being wrong with our health we were to resort to some simple but proper means of correcting the mischief, nine-tenths of the suffering that invades our homes would be avoided. A dose of Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters taken when you feel the least bit out of sorts is just that stitch in time." You can get G'vilym Evans' Quinine Bitters at any Chemists or Stores in bottles 2s. 9d. and 4s. 6d. each but remember that the only guarantee of genuineness is the name "Gwilym Evans" on the label, stamp, and bottle, without which none are genuine.

Toplis," who writes on Free Church topics in the South Wales Daily News,' had the following paragraph in a recent issue of that paper:— The report that Mr Evan Roberts con- templates an early visit to Wales, for the purpose of again resuming revivalistic work, j has creat^l no small interest in Welsh Non- conformist circles, and it is only right to add that in the interest there is mingled a good deal of misgiving. The majority of the Nonconformist ministers in Wales whose districts were visited by Mr Evan Roberts at. the time of the revival, readily acknow- ledge that the revival was productive of an immense amount of good. Still, it had its disadvantages no less than advantages. It threw all the machinery of church work completely out of gear. It subordinated the great, function of the pulpit to the incessant singing of hymns. It made men forget that it is preaching—great preaching on the solemnities of life and hereafter—that has given Nonconformity its prestige and supre- macy in Wales, and that has made the Welsh nation the most democratic religious nation in the world. Moreover, it was irr- evitable that after such a tidal wave of emotion and ecst-acy, as was the revival, the reaction would set in. Already the reaction has come, and all the Nonconformist bodies are feeling the strain of it. There is a con- sensus of opinion that one revival, with its upheaval of emotions and its displacement 01 existing organisations, is quite sufficient in the course of one generation, and for that reason the great bulk of Nonconformist ministers throughout the Principality are fervently hoping that Mr Evan Roberts will not carry out his intention of coming back to Wales to fan the flame afresh. I met him on the occasion of his visit to the con- ference at the Friends' House' in London a short while ago, and I confess that I was struck at the change which has taken place in him. In his revival days he spoke Welsh exclusively, and declined the requests, re- peatedly made to him, to say a few words in English, on the ground that he felt his mission was exclusively to his own country- men. Now, however, he speaks English exclusively."
Experiements with a Well-known Cough Cure. BY A LONDON SCIENTIST. Cbas. Hyatt Woolf, Esq., F.R.P.S., F.R.S.L., Editcr of Popular Science Siftings, writes as follows in his new book, Truths about thingsite live on and daily USq-" With a view to discover- ing a form of medicine needed ta diminish conges- tion, aid expectoration, and soothe the respiratory track, I experimented in the laboratory with Veno's Lightning Ccugh Cure and applied it in practice. I found this remedy contained a variety of matters capable of affording relief in all those cases where coughing is a symptom. Not only this, but it is a distinct nerve sedative and tonic, and it is not only applicable with advantage in cases of bronchial coughs, but also for stomach coughs. It would likewise have a certain value in consumption, it showed distinct ability to abate feverish symptoms, and in all cases to which I applied it, the influence of Veno's Light- ning Cough Cure was most marked. Th-is Cough Cure is very nicely compounded, so much so that it is even pleasant to take, its delightful flavour commending it to the most fastidious patient. It contains no opiate or anything that could effect harm." Take Veno's Lightning Cough Cure for all diseases of chest, throat, and lungs in young or old. Price 9d, 1/1 i, and 2/9, of all chemists.
< The Lords' Veto. The future of the Lords was the subject of reference in both Houses on Wednesday. There were to this effect:— 1. The Premier in the Commons made it perfectly plain that the House would not be asked to part with the Budget until after the Veto Resolutions will be submitted to the Lords. 2. As Mr Asquith declined to give any un- dertaking as to whether it is intended to pass the Budget through all its stages in the Commons before the Spring Recess, it is safe to conclude that whether the Budget is allowed to pass out of the control of the Commons depends upon the fate of the Veto Resolutions and the possibility of forcing a Veto Bill into law. In the House of Lords the Earl of Rose- hery gave notice of the terms of the resolu- tion which he will submit to the Peers. They are as follows:— 1. That a strong and efficient Second Chamber is not merely an integral part of the British Constitution, but is necessary to the well-being of the State and to the balance of Parliament. 2. Such a Chamber can best be obtained by the reform and reconstruction of the House of Lords. 3. That a necessary preliminary to such reform and reconstruction is the acceptance of the principle that a possession of a peer- age should no longer of itself give the right to sit and vote in the House of Lords.
The death is announced in New York of Mr Louis Klopsch, proprietor of the American journal Christian Herald/through which paper he raised X660,000 for the relief of famine-stricken popula- tions in India, Russia, China, Japan, Finland, and Sweden.

GRAFTING FRUIT TREES. No time should be lost to head back any inferior variety of apple or pear, providing the trees or stocks are healthy, with the view o grafting them with better kinds towards the end of the month. Fairly late grafting is to be recommended as then the sap in the stock is active, and is more likely to sustain the graft or scion, and cause a quick union. Further, it -is also wise to have the sap in the stock some what advanced to that in the graft, therefore the latter in the meantime should be buried half its length in a damp soil in a north aspect.

THE DEVELOPMENT ACT. Earl Carrington (President of the Board of Agriculture), speaking in London on Wednes- day week, said that they were all agreed that the State ought to take a much larger share in the development of agriculture than was the case at present. He congratulated the com- pany present on the passing of the Develop- ment] Act, under which the sum of a quarter of a million would be ear-marked and devoted to agriculture at large. A certain amount of alarm had been expressed in the Chamber of Agriculture lest the money might be diverted to other things, but he could assure them that so far as he was concerned, he would see that agriculture got its fair share of the grant. The Development Act opened up a new chapter in the history of agriculture. This was a scientific age. and the field for inquiry was both wide and varied, and under the Development Act we should have investiga- tions into the improvement of the soil, into the supply and use of fertilisers, the introduction of new types of cereals, the improvement of live st-,ck, and the elimination of disease from animals and plants. Those were only some of the matters which would be financed under that Act.
ithey are on mustard or other food, and are to be shifted on to white turnips, provided, of course, that there is keep enough, for the latter are roots of much lighter and less rich nature than swedes, and though more can be grown per acre than swedes, they have not nearly the same feeding value per ton. Frosted roots are supposed to be objectionable, but it notable then when well frosted the dangers above alluded to disappear. For ewes, swedes are not the best of food previous to lambing, and have the reputation of diminishing the milk flow if used afterwards. Something may depend on how theyfcare grown and some farmers look with suspicion on swedes grown with artificial manure where ewes are concerned. I believe this is so in Norfolk, but elsewhere I have found no importance attached to this. No doubt the richness of the crop is the explanation of this, or perhaps the quick- ness of growth, for this point seems to affect the safeness for feeding of some green fodders. Swedes mix well with mangels when these are fed to ewes and lambs, and the latter are best mixed with two-thirds of their bulk of swedes till the swedes are finished, but it is well to run them on grass only for the first fortnight.
two Presidents at considerable length, and replied to various questions put to them by Mr Burns, According to the scheme put for- ward for the acceptance of the Government, the unemployed would be selected for the training to be given in the colony, and would be tested for a month for their aptitude for country life and work, as well as their physical fitness, character, and intelligence. If satis- factory, they would be settled with their families for two years in small holdings upon the colony for training in extensive cultivation of produce for the market. They would then be encouraged to join an independent and co- operative association of small holders. It was suggested that a portion of the Development Fund should be employed on the establishment of an experimental colony of 100 families, the success of which might lead to the provision of five or six other colonies in different parts of the country. Mr Burns assured the deputa- tion of his jSympathic consideration of the points placed before him. Earl Carrington said he felt it most important that a bridge should be provided by which men who had had previous agricultural experience, but had I drifted to the towns, and who were now desir- ous of returning to the country, should be enabled to do so.
dom heard, except when the ball was out of play. The visitors were a fine set of men, and will receive a warm' welcome from all who saw the game when they visit Newtown next season. For Newtown, Lloyd in goal gave a fine display, and could not be blamed for the goal that was scored against him. It is a great pity that this polished player has been unable to assist his side oftener. The backs were safe but the half-back line was the backbone of the team. W. E. Watkin fed his forwards judi- ciously. Savage, who took Powell's place at centre half, who was at Cambridge play- ing for his country, was sound, and kept the opposing centre well in check. Ford was undoubtedly the best man on his side. If this young player keeps on improving, he will get his place in the Welsh XI. The forwards were all good individually, but lacked combination. At times when they in- tended to pass they dribbled too near an rJ.. '"1 (".L 1. 1- 11 opponent, and were ouen rODDeCl 01 me uau. Thev should remember that a player with a stick has a long reach.
