Correspondence. (We do not identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents.) WHY PEOPLE DO NOT GO TO CHURCH. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
GoirespDQaeQGB. (We do not identify ourselves with the opinions expressed bv correspondents.) WHY PEOPLE DO NOT GO TO CHURCH. To tlia Editor. Sir,—The reason why people do not go to church is because the in terests of the minister and the people, are not in ail canes identical. Unless a man has a good banking account, and in supposed to be "somebody," he i- gen. rally looked npon 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 wonhl not look at the poor; but would bow and smile at those they regarded thdi&lt; equals in colonial society. I wa3 always taught that all men were equal 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 slighted and snubbed by th...

THE CRISIS. IN WHICH FATE INTERVENED TO SOLVE A BIG PROBLEM OF LIFE AND LOVE. She kuelt by the open window, the light evening breeze stirring her curly liair, her tear-wet eyes fixed on the blue-black silhouette o£ the tur rets ol' Fittleworth Park against the western slty.

FOR THE FARMER. THE FARM MANAGER. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
FOR THE FARMER. THE FARM MANAGER. •More than a special knack or abil ity is required to make a farm man ager. There must bo even develop ment and mastery of 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 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 (ail, or if brakes and throt tle are not always under control. The manager's task is to make many per sonalities act as ah 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 on at your farm. Reduce your detail to system and assign it to subordinates. Make sure that you are caring for to day's and to-morrow's work and men, funds and service—tlmt your policy upon management is well-balanced and full-round...

HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY AND HAPPY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY AND HAPPY HOMES. The object o£ this article is to im- • press upon the minds of our young , women readers that the refinements o£ fashion, the duties of the toilet, and j whatever else composes the harmless ■ amusements of young women, should on no account, unless in very particu lar instances, impede their course of i instruction in the more useful and lasting dutifes of domestic life. To preserve a house, however humble, or | however costly, in the best possible j order, to have a knowledge in the making up of female attire, and to be learned in the divers processes of cookery, are qualities absolutely es sential to all young women, if they have any ambition to be placed at the head of a domestic establishment. The house being the appropriate kingdom of the wife, it is necessary that she should be a thorough mistress of all its faults, and in no instance be left at the mercy of servants, who, even if anxious to please, are soldom competent to carry on a househo...

A GENTLE HORSE BREAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
A GENTLE HORSE BREAKER. Next to Alexander the Great, who in his youth subdued Bucephalus, per haps the most famous o£ ail horse breakers was John Rarey, the Oliio ian, who died at the age o£ 3S, after having amassed a fortune by his skill. With the awakening of his mental energies, the boy realised that there was something wrong in the preval ent method of breaking horses. His childish soul recoiled at the cuffs and blows with which drivers were wont to subdue their animals. Throughout his schooldays the subject of his com positions was "JIan's Best Friend—the Noble Horse." His most ambitious effort was a rhyme, in which he sang the gospel of "kindness, patience and firmness' in dealing with the brute creation. The taming point in his boyhood came on his twelfth birthday. His father, now "an extensive dealer in horses, presented to him an unbroken pony, which the lad proceeded to train aner his own ideas. Little attention was paid to his manoeuvres with, the pony until neighbors beg...

IT MEANS WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
IT MEANS WEALTH. Raising- jive stock always produces more wealth in the country. It means greater investment, which, in turn, brings in greater revenue. When crops are grown and the products sold soil is impoverished and little revenue is received, whereas when these crops are food to good animals they bring in a great deal more revenue and the soil is improved.
