SOME BULL'S EYES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 4 July 1914

SOME BULL'S EYES. llow the weeds do like tlie warm days alter ruin. Hit 'em a clip the minute they stick up their heads. A rickety fence is a standing invita tion tor. st,ock to break through. A staple or a post in:time saves temper. it is just .as good a thing for the farmer to hang up his barn broom as it is for his. wife to do so with her broom. " - The farmer who i makes drudges o£ his mother and sisters won't worry be cause his wife splits the kindling and carries in the coal. The man who wins is the man who can turn ..everything, even to an old tin can'with a hole in the bottom, to some account. The only certain way to find out what sort of cows we have Is to test them. Sometimes the results are very disappointing and we may wish we had not done it, but in the end it is greatly-to our advantage. The limitations In farming are few er than in any other occupation of which we have any knowledge. The soil is a complex substance, but it has aunost unlimited possibilities, when mana...

LIVES LOST BY LAUOHING. An accident, said to be the most ex traordinary on record, occured at somo oilfields in the Baku district of Russia, on the borders of the Caspian Sua. One of the big "gusher" oil (veils became choked, and, with a view of blowing it clear, a number of iron drums full- of nltro-glycerine were brought.dpwn by rail from Derbend, n.ul deposited over-night In a large' shed, which was used "by the men as a sort of "canteen..

Sheila Danvers' gay season did not end a day too soon. The weather was very sultry, and the girl's pretty rounded cheeks, never highly colored, became paler and paler.

WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 4 July 1914

I WOMAN'S WORLD. I * ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. ? When we have a special work to do we first "clear the decks for action." If there is an absorbing piece of literary work to be accomplished, the usual desk detail is cleared away, the ink bottle filled, the old pens re placed with new ones; when a busi ness man has a large undertaking on hand, he first rids his calendar of smail appointments and annoying cir cumstances; the clerk in the storo, to show a new line of goods, clears his I counterx of everything else; every ' good business manager, in order to j have his men work to advantage, re lieves them first of petty inconveni- 1 enccs which would hinder their pro gress. This is good business manage ment. Time and money are gained thereby. The housekeeper, in order to forge ahead in her work, and make time count, needs to be relieved of clutter and inconvenient arrangements which are on all sides a bar to progress. It is her habit to clear away her ...

POINTED REPLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 4 July 1914

POINTED REPLIES. It is very amusing sometimes to hear the ever-ready and witty replies made by some people to the questions they are asked. It is said by some to be an "extra gift," for, no matter where they are or how quick the ques tion is given, they are able to give an answer or offer an excuse. The fol lowing are rather interesting:— "Is your client pleading Insanity?" "I haven't decided," replied the law yer. "He wants to look the ground over and see which is the easiest to escape from—the prison or the asy lum." ' A clumsy carver once sent a goose into a lady'B lap. His apology was better than his carving. "Ah, madam, how potent your charms are! They attract. not only the living, but also thj dead." On an examination paper on "How we are Governed" was the question: "It the Prime Minister, the Chancel lor of the Exchequer, the Home Secre tary, and all the other members of the Cabinet should "die, who would officiate?" A boy of twelve thought for a moment; then the happy Inspir...

MAISIE MARSH'S DOUBLE [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 4 July 1914

MAISIE MARSH'S DOUBLE I • I By P. Beaufoy. Harold Ingram was not very popu lar at the office in Redfriars-street, E.C. He was quite an excellent young fellow, but he had a certain shyness and reserve vrbich the other men mis took for what is called "stand-afilsH ness." In the E.C. district, aB in other regions, young men are apt to be su perficial, and the office staff at 27 Red friars-street, was no exception to the rule. They called him "Hamlet," because he was addicted to the reading of Shakespeare in his luncheon-hour, and also because he possessed a certain melancholy aspect which the name suited. It must be said for Ingram that he 'bore the chaff of his associ ates with perfect good humor, and did not seem to mind much. "Have you hoard tho latest about Hamlet?" said young Charlie Pargi ter to his chum Harris, on a certain afternoon in early spring, as they sat over their dominoes In a city cafe. "It is rather funny." ' "Not been seen at a music-hall, has he: ' laughed the othe...
