CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 27 June 1914
CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. The education of an infant should commence as soon as it is born as good or bad habits are formed during childhood. If, for example, a baby ir fed every time it cries, it soon begins to understand that by crying It gets what it desires, but by gratifying its demands against our belter judgment v,e are instilling into U13 unconscious infant a lesson in selfishness and greed which may persist through its whole life. A habit scarcely less harmful is giving it something to suck to "keep it quiet." Many parents leave the duty of in stilling good habits into their chil dren to the teachers in schools, for getting that by the time school life begins habits have been formed that may mar or make the child's career for life. Habits and character are bound together; one cannot have "i good character with bad habits. The habit of obedience is one of the first to be enforced. Very early in life a child will recognise right from wrong, hut perhaps at first the wrong path is...

UNSKILFUL TEMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 27 June 1914
UNSKILFUL TEMPER. One would think that there could be no end to the resources of anger. Men use it in so squandering a way, that one is surprised that the stock does not run out. But even this wastefulness of the preci&us commo dity is not censurable as the want of skill and good taste with which it is employed. It is not economised. It is not put to good purposes. It is squandered. It is not skilfully shot, as a marksman shoots at a target. Indeed, men show clearly enough that they do not know the value of anger. A good article of anger is worth far more than the best gun-powder, and ought to 'be used with an economy at least equal to that of the sportsman, who never burns powder needlessly. What should be thought of a sportsman who should go on firing his gun out of the window? Or what of one who should go about the yard, the garden, ex ploding his gun every hour into the air, hitting nothing? Yet so do men let off the precious force of temper— invaluable treasufe of anger...

A correspondent of "To-Day" tells the following amusing story of a Brit ish midshipman's adventure in Japan: Last New Year's Day a midshipman from one of the big cruisers was "taking in" the city of Tokio in a rickshaw. There was a keen breeze blowing, but it was prevented from howling merrily through the middy's whiskers by reason of the fact that he hadn't any. But if' his face were de void of hirsute adornment, he, by way of compensation, held between his lips a number one Manila cheroot of imposiug proportions, which he puff ed with ostentatious vigor. Now, these simple facts were noted by an equally ' simple but sternly conscientious Jap anese policeman, who prided himself upon his entire and precise know ledge of the laws of the land of the "rising sun." When the Oriental bobby saw that juvenile naval offi cer's glowing but beardless counten ance from afar he thought of the Jap anese equivalent for the British "Ha! ha!" and ordered the coolie...
