DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 27 June 1914
DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. "Anyone who has not the nature of a cabbage is neurotic," said Dr. Leon ard Guthrie in a lecture on "The Ner vous Child" before the Child Study Society. He gave no definite advice as to what should be done with, ner vous children, but he asked that they should be treated with sympathy, and that their parents should not put down all the children's troubles to some form of organic disease. He de scribed the night-terrors of nervous children as occurring between the years of three and eight. If the child suffers from slight indigestion, he he said, it is seldom terrified by pain, 'but by horrible faces. A stuffy bed room will make it dream o£ being strangled. Cold limbs often cause a child to get terrors of icebergs or ava anches, and lying in an uncom fortable position brings dreams of tor ture chambers. All its mental re sponses to sensations are quadrupled in its dreams, and they bring on in tensified memories of past troubles only faintly connected -with t...

HIGH ESTATE OF THE CHRYSANTHEMUM IN JAPAN. The chrysanthemum has been culti vated in uhina for more than 2000 years, and there is evidence oC its be ing chcrished in Egypt 1000 years be fore its mention in China. Whether ii enme from Egypt to China or vice versa, it is impossible now to deter mine, but the Chinese are prone to re gard it as a product of the Far East. Confucius, the celebrated sage of China, makes mention of the chry | eanthemum 500 B.C., under the name 1 of liki. From China it came to Japan, I writes Dr. J. Ingram Bryan, where it reached its highest form of develop ment, and is still reverenced as the Imperial emblem; and. one of the highest orders in the imperial' gift is the order of the chry Gantliemum. On the imperial sword I the (lower is engraved, and It figures I prominently on warships, and every ! thing belonging to the Crown.

A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 27 June 1914
A MIDSHIPMAN'S ADVENTURE IN ! JAPAN. I I 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 J of compensation, held between his lips a number one Manila cheroot of imposing 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 th...

CONSTITUTIONAL VIGOR. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 27 June 1914
CONSTITUTIONAL VIGOR. ■ The first thing to look at is consti tutional vigor. If the sow has a weak constitution she is undesirable and cannot be depended on to bring strong and vigorous stock, no matter what good qualities the boar to which she 1b bred may possess. The exter nal indications are a wide face, short neck, and good width between the just back of the fore legs. Those things indicate large heart and lungs which, if accompanied 'by a large stomach and broad loin, mark an animal that will &lt;be a good eater and a -good as similator of the nutrient elements in the food consumed. These strong vital energies she will transmit to the pigs. The sows | should have bone of good sfre as in dicated hy the size of the leg, and be short between the joints of the legs. If the legs are short and straight, the i sow can stand up well, but if long aud' crooked they are likely to be come weak and let her down. Weak ness of this kind is transmitted, and it is an undesirable conditi...

HOME, WIFE, AND SATURDAY NIGHT. Happy is tlie man wlio lias a little home and a little angel m it of a Saturday night; a house, no matter how little, provided it will hold two or so; no matter how humbly furnish ed, provided there is hope in it.

Mo matter if you haven't a caudle to bless yourselt with, lor what a beautiiui light glowing coal makes—just light to talk by, not aloud, as in the highways; not rapid ly, as in the hurrying world; but soitly, slowly, whisperingly, with pauses between for the storm withouc and the thought within to lill up with. Then wheel the sofa around by the lire; no matter i£ the sofa is a settee, uncushioned at that, if so be it is just long enough for two and a half in it. How sweetly the music of sil ver bells from the time to come falls on the listening heart then! How mournfully swell the chimes o...
