SUCH A BIG BABY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911

. . SUCH A BIG BABY. A schoolmaster had just finished a lesson on 'Food' when a little boy put up his hand. On being asked what he wanted, he replied: 'Please, sir, Jones said he knew s baby that was brought up on ele pnant s milk, and it gained ten pounds in weight every day.' ' 'Jones ought not to tell you such rubbish,' said the master. Then, addressing Jones, he added: 'Tell me whose baby was brought up on elephant's milk.'

KING GEORGE I. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911

KING GEORGE I. Of course, you know that the King of England is called George V. He is called that because there have been four other Kings of Eng land named George, but it is a long time since they lived. I have been thinking, however, that perhaps you will like to read Bumuouuig iiuuuii one 01 mem. Well, the first King was called George I., and he often did kind deecis, for he liked to be kind to everyone. One day he was walking through a waiting-room in his palace in London, when he saw a young man who had been a sailor officer, „. . and who was without legs, which had been cut off by a doctor because they had been very much hurt by a cannon-ball during a battle. This young man was now very poor, as he oould not oe a sailor ? .officer any more, and he had come to the King's palace In a carnage to ask for help. As he saw King George, therefore, the young sailor officer cried out loudly, so that the King could hear, 'Behold, great sir, a man who will not bend his knee to you, for he...

HOW TONY HELPED BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911

HOW TONY HELPED BUSI NESS. Beppo was the master. Tony was his dog. Beppo was a poor little Italian boy who sold flowers on the street, and Tony was a very clever shepherd dog who loved his little master devotedly. Although Beppo was poor and very often hungry, he always shared his food with the dog, and Tony waited for .an opportunity ?' to return his kindness. Bufc one day it happened that Beppo did not get up, and the dog, going to his bed of straw, found him too ill to rise. Tony sat by the cot and kept him company for a- while; then, he ran to the table on which Beppo had laid his basket the night before, and seizing it between his teeth he trotted on to the florist where his young master brought his wares. The florist knew the dog well, and grasped the situation in a second. Quickly he filled the basket, and, stroking the dog's shaggy head, he bade him god-speed. Tony ran into the street, straight to the corner where Beppo always stood. Customers came and bought the sweet-smell...

THE LAZY BEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911

THE LAZY BEE. A lazy bee! Think of it! The bees you have heard about have al ' ways been busy ones, haven't they V Now, I am going to tell you about a lazy bee that started out one morn ing with all the other little bees to pet honev to take back to. the hive. They went to a field of pretty white clover, and, oh! that, makes such nice honey ! But this naughty, lazy bee, instead of getting the sweet - ness from the blossoms, was just 'swaying back and forth on the stem of one of the flowers. It didn't want to work, and it just decided it wouldn't. Now, this field was beside a school house, and the lazy bee could hear the children saying their lessons. Now they were having their reading lesson, and what was it they were reading ? 'How doth the little busy bee Improve each shining hourP It gathers honey all the day From every opon flower.' First one read it and then an other ; and then the teacher talked ? to them about it, and told them they ought to be' ashamed to ever be idle in sch...

DOROTHY'S WASHING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911

DOROTHY'S WASHING. What do you think Dorothy got for a present on her fifth birthday a few weeks ago? Such a cunning little laundry set— za little tub and washboard and the dearest little rack to hang her clothes on ! There never was such a busy little triri fie Dnrnthv wnc frvr a f«»w rlnvB. Mary Jane and Esmeralda, Jack the sailor boy 'and her whole family of dolls were kept so clean. But after she had done their clothes all over two or three times, she thought she would like some different things to wash. She want ed to do something useful — some- thing to help mamma. One day when her mamma had gone down town she decided to sur prise her. She knew the very thing to wash. She had heard her say yesterday when she came home from calling and took off that fluffy, pleated chiffon thing that looked so pretty round her neck, that she couldn't wear it again until it was sent to the cleaner's. Then, with a sigh, she had said: 'That cleaner gets all of my money.' How pleased she would be t...

THE SLEEPING SENTINEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 14 February 1911

THE SLEEPING SENTINEL. The Mayor of Cleveland, a town in the United States, told at a din ner the following story of the fam ous President Lincoln and the sleep ing sentinel. William Scott, a Ver mont lad — so the story runs — was caught sleeping at his post and con demned to dTe. But Lincoln par doned mm. Lincoln, visiting Scott, said in his gentle voice: 'My boy, stand up here and look at me in the face.' The youth, abashed and awkward, fronted the tall Presi dent. 'My boy,' said Lincoln, 'you are not going to be shot to-morrow. I'm going to trust you and send you back to your regiment. But I've come up here from Washington, where I have a great deal to do, and what I want to know is, how are you going to pay me for my trouble?' Scott stammered: 'I'll pay you somehow, sir. There's the bounty in the bank, and I guess we could raise some money with a mortgage on the farm. My brothers would help, too.' But Lincoln laid his hands on Scott's shoulders, and, In a voice gentler than ever...

NURSERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911

NURSERY. Don't let your children see that you are disappointed in them. There is no surer road to self-consciousness and the don't-care attitude than if the boy or girl feels that mother thinks him a failure. Don't, on the other hand, think your progeny prodigies. If the child knows he isn't, he is conscious of embarrassment and being under a strain ; if he agrees with the mater nal opinion he becomes insufferably conceited. | : -Don't, whatever else you do or leave undone, don't nag. There is no surer love destroyer than a moth er who magnifies trifles; . who is a chronic fault-finder and scold. The children of such a mother rarely are found in the home— if they can get out of it.

TO PUT ON A GLOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911

TO PUT ON A GLOVE. There is a wrong way and a right way to. put on gloves. To learn the right way watch an experienced saleswoman while she tries a pair on a customer. Invariably she will first push the glove on the four fin gers before putting on the thumb. She works slowly meanwhile, and not unru tne giove is nitea to tne hand does she fasten it at the wrist. When the glove is removed, the ope ration should begin at the wrist, and the glove be carefully turned back wards as far as the second joint of the fingers. It will then come off easily with a slight pull at Ihe tips of the fingers. If', however, it be pulled right from the hand by the tip of the fingers, it will be stretched out of shape. One glove should never be turned into another, in the manner in which stockings are usually done up. They should be laid out as flat as possible, with the thumb folded inside the palm of the glove.

PLUCKING OSTRICHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 February 1911

PLUCKING OSTRICHES. ; When the time comes round for plucking: ostriches it is necessary to collar the. troop; This is done by sending about half a dozen men in to the. enclosure on foot, and a couple on' horseback, to 'bring the straggl ers in. The birds are driven into a small kraal, about forty yards square, and in this kraal the plUck ing-boxes stand. The birds are then caught, and, as quickly as pos sible, small linen bags are slipped over their heads — a process which immediately conquers the. bird, jfor, finding himself in darkness, he will stand trembling, and ready to be pushed in any direction. With the, bags over their heads, the birds are' pushed' into the plucking-boxes. A man standing outstrip thf- hr»v at each side gets hold of the wing, and clips. ;the i feathers ..from .It : then!, i walking round to the tail, clips the tail-feathers also, until the whole; troop has passed through the pluck-, ing-boxes. Six men will«pluck .i50 birds in one day. ? ! \
