"AGRICULTURE" There is no subject that has been so much twisted about by theorists than agriculture but j however plain or vivid a theory may be it cannot be effective unless practical. The more closely one follows the practii al Side >>f agriculture, the better devoted to agricultural studies then the wider becomes the field of knowledge and as one c quires such practical wisdom the more insignificant Ins ideas of agriculture Seems Indeed, the fullness of Bgrii nl'ur.d w ld an is ;..o f.ir above the reach "I any lone man. Being fully aware that agricultural puisuits to be successful in a Country demands the Co operation of farmers, the blend ing of ideas, Careful study of each item and experiments, lam again asking your Co operation in the fight to death of this Citrus fly. This fly haadestro) ed the lime trees, is doing the same to orange and grapefruit trees ; is attacking Bananas, Gauvas, Pears, Mangoes and Sapoddlies These new outbreaks are the result of your inactivity. I lave you eve rpictured the Bahamas without an edible fruit ? Remember your lime irees and possibly the destructive nets of this prst will he made plain er to you. Several persons have asked a cure for their trees and were advised Spraying : but now that tins fl> has taken such a hold on our fruit trees, and ow ing to obvious reasons, spraying alone is insufficient. Toiuccesi fully eradicate this fly is as simple as it is drastic, and as effective, as easily done. Under my Scheme of dealing with this fly ; it is of paramount importance that all owners of such trees, read carefully these lines and join in the general operation "Cutting back." To do this get a small saw and a pair of pruning shears. Cut back all the infested trees beforespring and keep them leaf • ess for two months at least, then tiveness of this method try it, and if agreeable tcv it. L. A.JERVIS.

So the British officer gave each of the I %  1 man wounded a drink of rum and made them as comfort able as he could before climbing out again and making big way to his own trench. There he arrived with a rum ration winch was a little short. There is a dog here which is being made much of at a cer tain post, a little dog patched with,black, yellow an I white. With a general inclination to be a terrier, It is too many kinds of dog to be of much value from a fancier's point of view. But it is a losal little dog with a great heart, though German. When our men broke into an tnerm stronghold recently, it was the only thing alive; and itcrouched between the dead knees of tin German officer who had been its master an.I barked valorous ly at the intruders. But if there is anything besides fighting which our men understand it is does. So they comforted the little thing and brought away, and it has quite come to the conclusion that the English are good people to live with. It spends most of its leisure in trying to provoke an Airedale five times its own size to fight. But the Airedale is an officer's dog and a gentleman and says, that it cannot possibly fight sh small a dog, especially when the other is down on his luck and a prisoner; so, whenever the little dog is rude to it, the Airedale merel) looks at the horizon and blinks its hair) eye lids, so the little dog ma) live in a good old age somewhere ii Kngland, nlwa) s friendly t< human beings who brought it v frotfi hat dreadful plJhjfc an 1 were kind io it, but a I way? fiercely inimical to British dogs.

Documents taken from prisoners in the last few day prove beyond a shadow of doubt that the German High Command on the Somme front views with extreme anxiety the irresistible Anglo-French offensive. An instruction marked "Private," signed by the Chief of the Staff Third Group Armies, dated Sep tember 14, addre-sed to the Commanders of the various un its, Temarks:— The General reminds you that every unit attached must hold its ground at whatever cost, whatever be the intensity of the bombardment or the vio lence of the shock. It must defend itself to the last man rather than yield an inch of ground. Any officer lacking the authority to make his men resist to the death will be liable to Courtmartial. The enemy, in the latest fighting, have employed new engines of war, as cruel as effective. No doubt they will adopt on an extensive scale these monstrous engines, and it :s urgent to take whatever measures are possible to counteract them. There was a French fore runner of the "'Tanks" in one Balbi, whfch passed fairly sue cessful tests before Napoleon the Third in i860.

German High Command
And The "Tanks."
"As Cruel As Effective."
PARIS, Skpt. 20.
Documents taken from pri-
soners in the last few day prove
beyond a shadow of doubt that
the German High Command on
the Somme front views with ex-
treme anxiety the irresistible
Anglo-French offensive. An in-
struction marked "Private,"
signed by the Chief of the Staff
Third Group Armies, dated Sep
tember 14, addre-sed to the
Commanders of the various un
its, Temarks:
The General reminds you
that every unit attached must
hold its ground at whatever
cost, whatever be the intensity
of the bombardment or the vio
lence of the shock. It must de-
fend itself to the last man rather
than yield an inch of ground.
Any officer lacking the authority
to make his men resist to the
death will be liable to Court-
martial.
The enemy, in the latest fight-
ing, have employed new engines
of war, as cruel as effective. No
doubt they will adopt on an ex-
tensive scale these monstrous
engines, and it :s urgent to take
whatever measures are possible
to counteract them.
There was a French fore
runner of the "'Tanks" in one
Balbi, whfch passed fairly sue
cessful tests before Napoleon the
Third in i860. It consisted of a
heavily armoured car, driven by
steam, bearing two guns. An
additional protection was pro
vided by*a wonderful revolving
scythe, which was intended to
mow down any of the enemy's
infantry which got close up'

first, and then picked up one

Half way through the fight the

already killed as he went; and j
he had actually disposed of all

the last Hung himself down and

seems incredible, but i? vouched
for by more than one witness of
part of th* exploit as well as by
the prisoner ; and it is officially
accepted by the unit as true,
and a report has been made on
it. The story is recounted, in the
official Canadian communique
for September 20 27, according
to which the hero of it is a cor
poral in an Fastern Ontario

I heard to-day, too, from cer
tain Canadians who have been

of their officers, who was off in
the far North West when the
war broke out, and he came by
canoe and on foot 500 miles to
join the Expeditionary Force.
He went through all the fight-
ing that his division has seen,
and rose gradually through the
successive non-commissioned
ranks till he got hiscommission.
A German machine-gun in a
certain post was holding up his
men, and he crawled up until
quite close to it, and then went
for it single-handed. When his
men came on, they found his
body lying across the gun and
the gun'tcmW dead around him.
Another incident reflects equal
credit on the gallantry of two
different Oversea contingents.
It is known that the Canadian
troops have recently been fight-
ing over ground which had for
merly been on the Australian
the German dead which lay
around ; and thus he had kept
his two patients and himself
alive for nine long days. One of
the two wounded is doing well,
but the other's wound has un-
fortunately become septic.

"AGRICULTURE"
There is no subject that has
been so much twisted about by
theorists than agriculture but
j however plain or vivid a theory
may be it cannot be effective
unless practical. The more
closely one follows the practii al
Side >>f agriculture, the better
devoted to agricultural studies
then the wider becomes the field
of knowledge and as one c
quires such practical wisdom the
more insignificant Ins ideas of
agriculture Seems Indeed, the
fullness of Bgrii nl'ur.d w ld an
is ;..o f.ir above the reach "I any
lone man.
Being fully aware that agri-
cultural puisuits to be successful
in a Country demands the Co
operation of farmers, the blend
ing of ideas, Careful study of
each item and experiments, lam
again asking your Co operation
in the fight to death of this
Citrus fly. This fly haadestro)
ed the lime trees, is doing the
same to orange and grapefruit
trees ; is attacking Bananas,
Gauvas, Pears, Mangoes and
Sapoddlies These new out-
breaks are the result of your in-
activity. I lave you eve rpictured
the Bahamas without an edible
fruit ? Remember your lime irees
and possibly the destructive nets
of this prst will he made plain
er to you. Several persons have
asked a cure for their trees and
were advised Spraying : but now
that tins fl> has taken such a
hold on our fruit trees, and ow
ing to obvious reasons, spraying
alone is insufficient. Toiuccesi
fully eradicate this fly is as
simple as it is drastic, and as
effective, as easily done.
Under my Scheme of dealing
with this fly ; it is of paramount
importance that all owners of
such trees, read carefully these
lines and join in the general op-
eration "Cutting back."
To do this get a small saw
and a pair of pruning shears.
Cut back all the infested trees
beforespring and keep them leaf
ess for two months at least, then
tiveness of this method try it,
and if agreeable tcv it.

Just as the Allies are 'up

have never before been met in

determined wickedness, which
demand the greatest courage
and resolution on the part of the
S -ldrers ol the Cross.
It has been hmn-1 necessary,

riofs of old, wilh a steel pro

the soldiers of ancient Rome,

the weak spots in our character

Paul Bays the whole armour. In
14 ,\m\ 17 he explains
what he means by the Christian
armour, namely. Truth, Right-
eousness, Knowledge, faith.
The helmet of Salvation, and the

Thus sin is disguised as delight

as an angel oj light. He often

believe in a personal Tempter,
but our Lord speaks very plainlj
about him, and says Ft ir him

There is a dog here which is
being made much of at a cer
tain post, a little dog patched
with,black, yellow an I white.
With a general inclination to be
a terrier, It is too many kinds of
dog to be of much value from a
fancier's point of view. But it is
a losal little dog with a great
heart, though German. When
our men broke into an tnerm
stronghold recently, it was the
only thing alive; and itcrouched
between the dead knees of tin
German officer who had been
its master an.I barked valorous
ly at the intruders. But if there
is anything besides fighting
which our men understand it is
does. So they comforted the
little thing and brought away,
and it has quite come to the
conclusion that the English are
good people to live with.
It spends most of its leisure in
trying to provoke an Airedale
five times its own size to fight.
But the Airedale is an officer's
dog and a gentleman and says,
that it cannot possibly fight sh
small a dog, especially when
the other is down on his luck
and a prisoner; so, whenever
the little dog is rude to it, the
Airedale merel) looks at the
horizon and blinks its hair) eye
