IF. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 14 August 1914

—u— IB'. If there were a man ill the moon, and if he were like the men on the earth, he would be able to leap ovci a three-storied house with as muet ease as an ordinary jumper springs over a 3ft. fence, in consequence o! the forces of attraction being muci less at the moon's surface than a1 the earth's. An elephant there would be as light-footed as the deer here. A boj throwing stones might easily land them in an adjoining county. Just the reverse of all this would happen in Jupiter and Saturn. The) 1 being so much greater than the earth, their attraction would impede loco motion, that a man would scarcely be able to crawl, and large animals I would be crushed by their owr weight. — (I..—■ .11- ^ i v.

MISREPRESENTING OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 14 August 1914

MISREPRI-JSIONTIN'U OTHERS. The truth that a good man haf ;poken with the noblest purpose may ne changed into a falsehood by simp ly taking it out of its connection, giving it a different inflection, or at tributing to it some motive that was not in the mind of the original speak er. The fair-minded man will al ways try to represent another as doing and saying what he has reasor to believe the other honestly purpos rd doing and saying. When he re ports the words of another,.he con scientiously aims to give them 1,hc exact connection and circumstance; in which they were originally spoken^ and then puts upon them the best possible construction. In short, h< treats the word and acts of others as he would have others treat his word and acts.

u THE DEAD OF GREAT CITIES. The dead of London require an an ' nual waste of twenty-three acres of j valuable ground.

DON'T WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 14 August 1914

o DON'T WORRY. There is but one way out of tin difficulty. It is impossible to avoir the causes for worry, for there is nc day that does not bring its share . but the trouble lies in the fact thai so many yield weakly to the depres sions to which nearly every one, is liable, and do not make any efTorl to rise superior to their trials. Wor ry is not always the accompaniment of great troubles ; it more'ireijuenth arises from petty cares, the constant jar and fret of which in time wears out the life. These can surely bt put aside if one has the will to dc so, and this is most easily done bj substituting in their places thoughti of other and better things, whicl will take'the mind out of self and selfish affairs, and turn it in othei channels.

THE GENTLE ART OF RULING A HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 14 August 1914

THE GENTLE ART OF. RULING M HUSBAND. The.best thing that, can happen to & man is to be ruled by his wife; but she should rule him . so discreet ly, so diplomatically, that lie could almost boast that it is he who rules her. , At all events, he should, re main very undecided which of the: two it is that rules the other. And when a, maa is not quite ' sure that , ft is he who rules his wife, you may t&ke it for granted that it is she who rules him. Of course, I start from this indis pensable, fundamental element that there is love between husband and | ■wife. Without love 'existing, in mat- ; rimdriial life no rule can be laid down ; no advice can be given on the subject. ! ' I-Iow is the art of ruling a hus band to be learned ?
