BYRON'S DEFORMITY. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 July 1914
BYRON'S DEFORMITY. When, with the severity of human opinion wo judge the poet Byron for his small vanity, and, indeed, for his vices, we should charitably remember that his nature was warped through a cruel affliction. He loved beauty with all his heart and soul, and his own deformity, which was not only lameness, but ug liness of the limb,* was very bitter to him. He had "the form and face of an Apollo, with the feet and legs of a satyr." One day, after a bath, he held out his leg to a friend who was with him, and said: "J. hope this accursed limb will be knocked off in the war!" "It won't improve your swimming," said the other. "I'll exchange legs with you, if you will give me a part of your brain." t "You would repent of the bargain," said the poet morosely. Lemons will keep a long time if covered "with, cold water.
A GENTLE HORSE BREAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 July 1914
A GENTLE HORSE BREAKER. Next to Alexander the Great, who in his youth subdued Bucephalus, per haps the most famous of ail horse breakers was John Rarey, the Ohio ian, who died at the age of 3S, after \ having amassed a fortune by his skill. i 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 "Man's Best Friend—the Noble Horse." His most ambitious effort was a rhyme, in which he sang the gospel o£ "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' auer his own ideas. Little attention was paid to his manoeuvres with the pony until neighbors be...
THE NEED OF ENJOYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 July 1914
I I THE NEED OF ENJOYMENT. During mom.ents 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 the quantity for a time, but the time will be short, and the quality will he absent entire ly. The host 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; bat 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 the pleasing picture that it has chosen tp entertain.

FOR THE OFFENCE OF THINKING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 July 1914
FOR THE OFFENCE OF THINKING. A boy o£ twelve was found wander ing one day in the fields near Genoa, Italy, by an Austrian police agent, and was roused from a mood oE abstrac tion by tlie question, "What are you doing?" "Thinking," was the terse re ply. That evening, his father, a pro fessional man already under suspi sion for the same offense, was inform ed of his sou'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 boy 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 main 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, town to town, as the stirring report was heard, and...

CHILDREN'S BEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 July 1914
CHILDREN'S BEDS. A child's bed should slope a little I from the head to the foot, so that the head may be a little higher than the feet, but never bend the neck to get the head on to a pillow. This makes the child round-shouldered, cramps the veins and arteries, and interferes with the free circulation of the blood. Even when a child is several years old the pillow should be thin and made of hair, and not on any account of feath ers.

CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 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 t^o 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 lias 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.tbe falling oil 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 ou its old time popular footing.
