HISTORIC STAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 25 April 1914

HISTORIC 8TAINS. Visitors to the famous castle of Wartburg, in Germany, are always very carefully shown a big black patch upon the wall. The room -where this stain upon the wall is shown was occupied by Martin Luther when he was a prisoner in this castle, and here he commenced his famous trans lation of the Bible. The-tradition Is that Satan appeared to him in this room in order to make certain plaus ible suggestions to the great Reform er. His reply was to take up his ink stand and throw it at bis visitor's head.- It crashed against the wall, leaving a stain -which has been rever ently preserved ever since. Undoubtedly the most interesting room in Scotland is the Sleeping chamber of Mary Queen of Scots, in the Palace of Holyrood, which still stands as it was when she occupied it. The walls are hung with tapestry, and half-covered by Jt is a small door leading to Queen Mary's secret stair. It was by this secret atair in the year 1566 that the assassins of the Queen's Italian secreta...

SING A SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 25 April 1914

SING A SONQ. If you'll sing n song as you go along In the face of the real or tbo fancied -wrong' In face of the doubt, if you'll light it out, And show a heart that Is brave and stout; f If you'll laugh at the jeers and refuse the tears. You'll force the ever-reluctant cheers That the world denies when a coward cries; To give to the man who bravely tries; And you'll win success with a little song— It you'll sing the song as you go along. If you'll sing a song as you plod along You'll find that the busy, rushing throng Will catch the strain of the glad re frain; That the sun will follow the blinding rain, That the clouds will fly from the blackenod sky, That the stars will come out by-and bye, And you'll mako new friends, till hope descends From where the placid rainbow bends. And all because of a little Bong— If you'll sing the song as you plod along. If you'll sing a song as you trudge ! along You'll see that the singing will make j you strong, And the heavy load, and tfffe rugged...

■Leila's spirit had beeu a little damp ed when 6lie drew the curtains of the foedroom and perceived that It was a ' rainy morning. Her hour of waking .had been that of a happy child,, rob bed by aleep of every remembrance of sorrow, and called, by the day to the joys of a house of mystery. - Desdy still slept in the other room,, his arm across his face and his hair tangled upon cne pillow. She knew ■ that the adventure of the night, had tired him, and she moved as an an gel of silence about the room. Hugh had gone downstairs to talk to the parson at that time, and the waiters were "laying the breafaBt. When one of them called her "m'lady," she start ed as though it were an impertinence. "I beg your pardon " "Will you have (breakfast . now, m'lady, or wait for Sir Hugh?"-; She recollected herself, and an swered very quietly: "I will wait for Sir Hugh, If. you please."

The cur came over from Aberfeldy about ten next morning, and tile Archdeacon sat amid the kit bags for which Hugh had telegraphed. The meeting between the two men took place in a corner of the little conser vatory which servos the hotel for an entresol. The day was wet, the Arch deacon said, and very windy, and he would not object to a glass of milk and 'brandy. "Well, my dear boy, and what have you done with Miss Leila?" "I have married her," said Hugh; and at that the good priest's tumbler almost slipped from his hand. He, was tenacious of tumblers, however, and lie saved it. "You mean to say "What I say.

"Is she In one of these houses?" wub his question to Hugh. Tho baronet patted his little hand and told him that he would see her very soon.

They came in together, the Arcli 1 deacon with arms outstretched (ns though his charity would embrace nil the world, especially the feminine side of it), Hugh with a bunch of roses for her. The waiter, who had come upstairs with the message wait ed respectfully upon the landing with a delicacy which did him credit. "My dear child! God bless you! Surely it is not forbidden upon such an occasion—and one for the dear lad. T am happy to 'be the lirst upon this happy day—the very first, is it not, Hugh?—well,then, I am glad. I rejoice from my very heart." Ho meant every word of it, a kind ly soul who loved to look out upon life through roseate windows. Leila had always known him to be her friend, , though sometimes she had doubted his courage. To-day, liis whole-hearted approbation won upon her gratitude—and it was a real kiss that she gave him. "Ah," she said slyly, 'Hiut you did not kiss me at Newcastle, Archdea con." He apologised for the omission handsomely. . "My dear child, where w...

FARM JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 2 May 1914

FARM JOTTINGS. The "discipline of the farm" is the asset o£ the farm boy that marks him I through later life. The endless round of planting and harvesting, the daily .care of animals, the regular toil of which there is no cessation, to him so often a dull routine, form altogether an inestimable training in systematic hab its and thoughts that accounts for his superior achievement In the industries, commerce, and statemanship in later life. The real opportunity for satisfac tory living in farming comes not so much from the nature of the work as from the fact that the farm Is a busi ness and a home, intricately interwo- j ven. Life and work united, which is the natural thing. It is much easier to maintain eoiPin a satisfactory condition of efficiency by crop rotation and the application ot artificial manures than to restore it after it hse once been impoverished by the loss of fertilising constituents. In pasturing lucerne it must not be over-stocked, and the animals will In jure the ...

TO GET GOOD POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 2 May 1914

TO GET GOOD POTATOES. A piece of old pasture is flue soil for potatoes. The better the .turf, the better the crop. A clover sod' is about the best. Put a good team on the plough and set the share deep down. Potatoes need a loose, deep-set bed. It is a leg-weary business to tramp back and forth across ploughed ground all day; and yet this is the price of good potatoes. Take your time to it, and be thorough. You will save time in the long run. The more harrowing the less cultivating. Get the seed well down. It may not come up so soon, but wheal it does come it will shoot ahead fast. A four inch covering 1b about right.

FARM IMPLEMENTS. How to Run a Reaper. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 2 May 1914

FARM IMPLEMENT6. How to Run a Reaper. With the modern binder, and in a moderately oven crop, there Bhould be practically no waste. Much un necessary waste Is occasioned by not giving the machine the right amount o£ tilt. Many binder experts arguo that the macliino should be run quite level—that is to say, the knife bar should not bo tilted in any way, but the whole machine should be horizon tal, their argument being that the bear ings will run more easily owing chiefly to their parts getting more perfectly lubricated. Now, while it must be admitted that tliero is a certain amount of reason in this, it neverthe less cannot be followed to the letter. The practical driver knows from ex perience that to run the binder abso lutely lovol means a bad-shaped sheaf with an enormous amount of waste, which is greatly increased if there is a slight head breeze, or If the horses should get on a little extra pace.

Then you are in the very mood for a visit from me, for I want your aid to some very serious reflections I haye just been indulging in upon .the world in general and your own beautiful self in particular." So saying, Mrs. Merton laid aside her rich walking-cloak, and disposed herself very comfortably for a morn ing's chat.

Quite Enough. Mr. Irvin S. Cobty, the American writer of short stories, returning from n trip in the Western States, found that a close friend of his had fallen into the hands of the law. He hurried down to the friend's lawyers. "Why, Jack is the dearest, kindest, most honest man in the world!" he ■said. "You must call me as a wit ness to his character." "Not while I'm his lawyer," was the reply. "I know just what would hap pen. The other man's lawyer would 08k your occupation. And you would say, 'I'm a writer of fiction.' And the lawyer would get* up and stand over you and look into the dark recesses of your heart for a time.
