VIM OF THE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 4 July 1914

VIM OF THE FARMER. The farmer's vim shows in getting at the work the minute it is ready. Shows, too, in the way he pushes that work. One day on and two days off point to failure in the near future. Vim showB, also, in the pride a man puts into his work. Some men show by their very faces that they love their work and are bound to do it Just right. They are the ones that come out at the head of the heap. Vim keeps a man's heart bright and cheery. Takes a pretty good man to whistle Just as cheerily when it rains as when it shines! The man with true vim in his heart can do it, and he will do it. Any men with vim down your way?

THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 4 July 1914

THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. According to Mr. Gilbert, author 01 "Fortunes for Farmers." spiritless Hodge is to be supplanted by an alert blue-smocked engineer, who will re ceive good wages anfl do the work of ten men, and be worth a hundred. If J this be the typo of man who is to do the tillage of the future, he will re quire a standard wage as will enable him to live in a good dwelling, and thus the rural housing problem will soon solve itself! Mr. Gilbert has evidently a warm heart for small holdings, but pertinently says, "they cannot be established anywhere—only on better soils can tUey succeed."

CREAT HUNGERFORD'S SACRIFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 4 July 1914

CtfETA HUNGERFORD'S ' SACRIFICE. I By Mildred Relphe. If ever a girl's hair could be de scribed as her crowning glory, it was so in the case of Greta Hungerford. In color it was the rarest and mos' exquisite shade of red-gold immortal ised by Titian, and so luxuriant that when unbound it veiled her tall, slender figure in a mantle of \vave3 and ripples and curls down to her . very knees, far fmer and more be coming than Lesbia's. It waved off from her broad, low forehead it heavy, shining masses, und was gath ered into a great silken mass Jit the back of her graceful little head, the tnick coils wound in and about until it covered it from the crown to the nape of the slender neck. This perfect June afternoon the brilliant sunbeams stole warmly through the open window of the cosy sitting-room", and burnished into "i golden glory Greta's magnificent tresses as she stood before her young sister, Madge, engaged in animated discussion.

Correspondence. (We do not identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents.) WHY PEOPLE DO NOT GO TO CHURCH. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 July 1914

iiomspoiitts. (We do rot identify ourselves with tlio opinions expressed by correspondents.) WHY PEOPLE DO NOT GO TO CHURCH. To the E'iitor, Sir,—The reason why people do not go to church is because the in terests of the miniflt-T and the peoplt are not in >< 1 casus identical. Unless a man has a good baukiug account, and is supposed to be "somebody," he is gem rally looked upon as an intruder if he enters a church. We have no sympathy from the majority of those who pro fess to be Christians. Not long ago I went into a church not 100 miles from Rokewood in which there ap peared to be two cliques—the poor and the. rich. The rich would not look at the poor; but would bow and stnile at those they regarded thai1 equals in colonial society. I was always taught that all men were tqual in the sight of God : that char acter was worth more than all the gold and broad acres. Until present conditions are altered, people would prefer not to go to church to be slighied and snubbed ...

The Why and the Wherefore ROMANTIC ORIGINS OF FAMILIAR WORDS AND DEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 July 1914

The Why and the Wherefore I ROMANTIC ORIGINS OF FAMILIAR WORDS AND DEEDS. If you tell the average man of edu cation that many of the prosaic acts he performs daily, many of the cus toms he observes, and even the clothes he wears, are so many roman tic survivals of the age of chivalry or oC still more remote ages, he will probably smile at you with amused in credulity; and yet, unconscious as he may be, he is in a hundred ways fol lowing in the footsteps of his long gone predecessors.. When, for example, ho lemoves his liat on entering a friend's house he is imitating the knight of mediaeval days who, before stepping into a castle hall, doilod his helmet as proof to his host that he came in peace, and by, thus removing the most vital part of his armor, showed his absolute re liance on a friendly reception. And when the soldier of to-day raises his hand in salute, it is an indication that, like the cavalier of old, he would be ready to "unhelm" out of politeness, if the army regulatio...

FOR THE FARMER. THE FARM MANAGER. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 July 1914

| FOR THE FARMER. THE FARM MANAGER. More than fi special,knack or abil ' itf>- is required to make a farm man I ager. There must be even develop ment and mastery ol' many powers, thorough understanding of all the es sentials of the business, self-training and wise use of the abilities of others. ! Train yourself, therefore, to think 1 of the manager's work as the post of | the chief engineer. Recognise that no matter how many duties are pro perly done, failure is certain if fuel and steam fail, or if brakes and throt : tie are not always under control. The manager's task is to make many per i sonalities act as an unit—to harmon ! ise the interplay of many departments. ! In the beginning list, group and ana ! lyse, the work that fills the calendar of successful managers—that goes 011 at your farm. Reduce your detail to system and assign it to subordinates.

She knelt by the open window, the light evening breeze stirring her curly hair, her tear-wet eyes fixed on the blue-black silhouette of tlie tur rets of Tittle worth Park against the western sky. The man who had gently opened the door stared at lier, lidgeted, then coughed artificially, and, entering, closed'the door behind him. lJaula Duncton, whose glorious violet eyes had stared at Londoners | from play-bill and placard for eigh teen months—she was, until her mys terious resignation from the Cour- I tier's Theatre three months beforc{ in the first rank of our more serious actresses—started and glanced at the intruder over her shoulder. She had arrived at the "Fox and Dragon" in the little sleepy Sussex village that evening, and had bar gained at a preposterous price for the exclusive use of its one and only par lor.
