FOR THE OFFENCE OF THINKING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
FOR THE OFFENCE OF THINKING. A boy of twelve was found wander ing one day in the fields near Genoa, Italy, by an Austrian police agent, and was roused from a mood of abstrac tion by the question, "What are you dojng?" "Thinking," was the terse re ply. That evening, his lather, a pro fessional man already under suspi sion for the same offense, was inform ed of his son's occupation, and told also that the Austrian government did not permit of "thinking" by its sub jects. That was about the year 1S20. A few years after the hoy was in pri son—still thinking! In the year 1849 all the roads to Mi lan were filled with armed and march ing columns—made up, not of Aus trians, but of Italians. On the inuin one running toward the Mediterranean the heaviest body was moving. A great stir was visible one morning. A tremendous shout was heard down the entire line. It was taken up from brigade to company, from hamlet to hamlet, village to village, towa to town, as the stirring report was beard, and ...
CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
CYCLING. The triennial conference of dele gates representing the cycling leagues of the various states and New Zealand, will be held in Mel bourne this week, and cyclists are hoping that the position in regard to the control of the sport in Victoria, caused by the dispute between the League of Victorian Wheelmen and the Interclub Cycling Association, will be improved, and matters brought to.a satisfactory settlement. Being unable to come to an agree ment with the League the Interclub Cycling Association withdrew its support last year from that body, and since then..has gained control of practically all the read racing, and much of the track racing. The Federal Council will decide as to which body is to be recognised in Victoria. It is anticipated that this and many other matters that have led to the falling off of interest in cycle racing in the Commonwealth during the past few years will be straightened out, and that cycle rac ing will be placed on itB old time popular footing.

A Labor-Saving Husband. "Yes," she admitted, "I am going to marry, an old soldier." "Are you sure you are not letting your sentiment run. away with your judgment?" they asked. "There is no sentiment about it. He will be so handy to have around the house to tell me stories that will make my hair curl."

THE NEED OF ENJOYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
THE NEED OF ENJOYMENT. During moments of rest and re pose, do not think of doing things, but think of enjoying things. The man who is always thinking of do ing things may produce tho quantity for a time, but the time will be short, and the quality will be absent entire ly. The best results are always se cured when thoughts of doing things aro frequently alternated with thoughts of enjoying things. The simplest, the easiest, and the quickest way to recuperate the mind is to think of enjoying things. A few moments of such thoughts aro usu ally sufficient to restore full mental vigor; but those moments must be given over completely to thoughts of enjoyment. The doing of things must be wholly forgotten for the time being, and the mind must give its all to tho pleasing picture that it has chosen tp entertain.
THE DIFFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
THE DIFFERENCE. The farm hand sometimes thinks that he lias a hard time, but, after all, he is a lucky fellow. All he has to do is what ho is told. He doesn't have to worry about running a farm and paying wages, or ponder over crop ro tation and other things. When the hired man shuts the stable door after supper he forgets about his work, whereas his employer goes to sleep pondering over keeping down expen ses.

MARRIAGE PROPOSALS OF FAMOUS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
MARRIAGE PROPOSALS OF FAMOUS MEN. Timidity can scarcely be said to have marked the wooiugs and propo sal ol some o£ the men whose names are household words, although the manner in whic'i some of them "pop ped the question" provides a hint or two lor those anxious bachelors who wish to propose in a pretty and ar tistic manner. Nothing could have ueeii more charming than the way Daniel Webster proposed. One day, when kneeling before his lady-love, 110 suddenly dropped the skein of silk she was winding off his hands, aud made with a piece of tape half a true lover's knot. The lady (a Aliss Flet cher) completed it, aud a kiss sealed the bargain. "Do you know, people say we are going to be marriedV" said Sir Alex ander Ijuii Gordon one day to the beautiful Lady Austin, and before she count reply he added, "Shall we make it true?" And they did. Toistoi was 'bold as usual. lie pro poseu by letter, in which he wrote: "leii me sincerely, do you wish to be my wife'.' But only if you can say y...
SYMPATHY FOR OUR SUPERIORS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
I SYMPATHY FOR OUR SUPERIORS.] i ■ Sympathy for those who are strong er, wealthier, healthier, more iniiuen tial, ami higher, in authority than our selves, is not so easily rendered. It does not otten occur to us to extend the sympathetic hand or word to those whom we look upon as in any way our superiors, and yet none need our sympathy more than such as these. Tho minister is expected to leel for and with his parishioners, but tho truth is that the minister needs • sympathetic.encouragement from them quite as much. So, too, of he physi cian and his patient. One of Tenny son's biographies quotes the Queen as saying of the Laureate—"When I took leave of him I thanked him for his kindness, and said I needed it, for I had gone thrcfftgh so much, and ho said—'You are so alone on that terrible height; it is terrible.' " The Sover eign appreciated kindness, considera tion and sympathy from her f-ubjects, and tho poet had a full realisation of what it meant to be so high up as to be practi...
The Why and the Wherefore ROMANTIC ORIGINS OF FAMILIAR WORDS AND DEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
'Ihe Why and the Wherefore] ROMANTIC ORIGINS OF FAMILIAR WORDS AND DEEDS. If you toJl 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 clothcs he wears, are so many roman tic survivals of the ago of chivalry or of still more remote ages, he will probably Bmile at you wiiu 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, lie icmovcs his hat on entering a friend's house he is imitating the knight of mediaeval days who, before stopping into a castle hall, do.Ted 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 regulations...
A Woman's Way. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
A Woman's Way. "To begin with, what is your age, madam?" was the lawyer's question. "My own," she answered, promptly. "I understand that, madam; I mean, how old are you?" "I am not old, air," with indigna tion. "I beg your pardon, madam. I mean, how many years have you passed?" "None; the years have passed me." ' "How many of them have passed you?" "All.. I never heard of them stop ping." * 5 "Madam, you must answer my ques tion. I want to linow your age." "I don't know that the acquaint ance is desired by the other side." "I don't see why you insist upon re fusing to answer my question," said the lawyer, coaxingly.' am Bure I would tell how old X was if I were asked." "But nobody would ask you, for everybody knows that you are old enough' to know better than to be ask ing a woman her age." And the lawy.er passed on to the next question.
GREATER THAN GOLD CHAPTER XVIII. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul o£ Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XVIII. These were truly happy days for tlie young couple—perhaps the hap piest days of all before words of love hail been spoken, and when the look iii the eye and tho trembling sSyle round the lip betrayed what was pass ing in each heart. Sharaus knew^by this time that his father and inotner would give their hearty approval to his marriage with Sheila Danvers, but something, he knew not what, de layed the words ho longed to utter. Perhaps it was that Sheila looked so very young, so very childish in-the simple clothes which had been choSen for her by the Duchess. WUajiwer ——tho Teason. he scarccTy ever left her, and that love, wliicli had been only a small thing in comparison in London, grew mightily apace at Castle O'Doyle. Sheila's hand trembled when she touched that of Shamus; her color changed whe...
THE LADIES' COLUMN A WIFE'S INFLUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
THE LADIES' COLUMN | A WIFE'S INFLUENCE. I Lookers-on often see the wonderful; iniluence a wife can exert for the good or failure of her husband. By a gra cious, genial manner she may win hosts of friends for'him. In nearly every walk of life, where lie has to look to the generous public for a live lihood, she can help him; make the yoke easier, and the burden lighter. A powerful factor in the world of Iriisi uess to-day is found in the iniluence of woman. She it is who stands by her husband when the darkness and gloom of trouble and depression have settled about him, and infuses hope into him, and points the way to a new beginning, 110 matter how small.
THE BEST THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 11 July 1914
THE BEST THINGS. "I like to have company," said a little girl, "l'or then we have bur pret ty dlslies." Again a little boy ex claimed: "I wish we could play in the parlor just a little while, but mo ther says it is no place for boys." I, know clumsy little fingers will dis arrange and break even our most cherished things, but better so than to make them stay in the kitchen to frown at them and keep saying, "You mustn't touch!" "Come out of that room, you dirty boy!" and to have the table set with all the cracked dish es the house affords. There are cheap stores in every large town and very pretty cups and saucers for sale, so let tlie children "see pretty things, even if cheap, 011 the table and not scold if they are broken by the handling of these unskilled fingers. Don't shut up the parlor, especially if it is the most sunny room in the house and sit in a room where there is no sun light These cheerful beams wipe out the microbes and keep us well and iji good, spirits.. Don't have...
