To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
To the Editor. Sir,—Re "Why do not people go to Church," I think our friend at Dereel is about right when he says the worship of the golden calf is the god of to-day. I was always taught that religion was in actions, inspired by divine love, and its actions and | service were for the benefit of others ; We read that Christ was rich, but for our Bakes He became pocr. The foxes have holes, the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man hath nowhere to lay His head. Take the prophets before Christ came. Elijah was fed by the ravens. And when Nuaman was cleans* d Irom his lep rosy, through the prophet Elijah, he warned to endi.w many a gift to the church, hut Elisha refused them, saying, "Is it a time to receive money," etc.—II Kings, chapter 5. We are told to set our affection on things above, not on things of the earth.—Col. Ill, 1—2. We hear of ministers receiving calls to another district; but one always notices that there is always a bigger salary at tached to it. When one rea...
RAILWAY RATES AND TAXES. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
RAILWAY RATES AND TAXES. To the Editor. Sir,—Perhaps much satisfaction j has been expressed at the removal | of that iniquitous tax—tha local rate j —from our Nuwtown-Beeac railway line, a tax that added greatly to the burden of the primary producer if not also to the detriment of the Railway Department itself, that is in connection with this line. But that satisfaction has almost been expell ed, for with the reino7al of one tax we have another levied upon up by the introduction of a higher rate in fares. Compare the rates for travel ling on our local lines, in fact on any country lines, with those paid by those living and travelling in the metropolitan area, the facilities, con cessions, and privileges granted to them, with the disabilities and in convenience we are asked to endure i whilst travelling 011 our country lines. In country districts, particu larly the one in question, to obtain proper railway accommodation, is one long lino of agitation and hard ship. Years ago an agita...
GOOD CHEER. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
GOOD CHEER. There is ;i great physician who long ago began To clear away the troubles that come to pester man; 'Tis true he is old-fashioned, but many a grievous ill That puzzles other doctors would yield to this one's skill; He makes no heavy charges, and he is always near To serve you it you want him; his full name is Good Cheer. His practice should 'be world-wide, and daily it should grow; He serves in' summer weather and when the wild winds blow; His night-bell is in order, he answers every call, He gives no bitter doses and tortures not at all, And they have few diseases, and stand in little fear, Who always are serenely attendod by Good Cheer. He does not doom the wealthy more worthy of his care Than are the poor who seek him. Where walls and floors are bare He ministers as freely as where the rich abide, And all he asks in payment are hope and honost pride; The hope and pride that follow where duty's call is clear— 'Tis time to aid in spreading the prac tice of Good Cheer.
FOR THE FARMER. BETTER FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
FOR THE FARMER. BETTER FARMING. More and more careful systematic methods ot farming are rapidly gain ing ground in this country. The in creased price of land makes such es sential to success, and no known sys tem .y,-ill put farming on a better basis than following Nature's method of keeping up the fertility of the Ia:i. and in a great measure this is win green manuring is. Dame Nature had 110 plough to turn under tile fall ing leaves of the bush hills, hut she left time to do the work, and it is the accumulated humus so formed from which our hush farmers are reaping their returns to-day. On much of our land fertilisers will he required to produce a good crop for ploughing in, for it is poor econ omy to plough in a poor one. Money so spent will he returned a hundred fold, and the permanent fertility of the land built up. On heavy land the ploughing in of such crops as Peas> ! valuable, for doing so often converts an unkindly diflicult-to-work land into a mellow, easily wrought so...

IS CLIPPING SAFE? [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
IS CLIPPING SAFE? It is not uncommon among dairy cows to find the udder covered with a dense growth of long hairs, which, although they m; / be of b0,7ie protec tion to the udder, nevertheless, from the standpoint of sanitation and com fort to the cow '-ring milking, are a detriment. Under ordinary farm con ditions they are generally covered with filth, and even in the best-kept dairies, unless clipped, collect some dust and filth. Furthermore, because of their location, it is highly probable that some of them will find their way into the milk pail during milking. In order that such condtions may not oc cur, these hairs should be clipped close once or twice eacii year, there by preventing collection of filth and permitting greater ease in washing the udder.
CHAPTER XX. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
CHAPTER. XX. Ou August a Peter Bellairs saw his I wife off to Melbourne. He had got , her au excellent berth, her maid ac companied her, and she was surround ed by every comfort. She had plenty of money and a good outfit;- and she ] was going to see the person whom she loved best in the wide world. Yes, of late she felt that she loved Ralph 'better even than her husband, for Bellairs, though kind, was cold and had ceased to show her those little at tentions and to utter those words o£ affection which used to fill her heart. Even at the moment of parting he re mained a distinguished and somewhat hard figure, but his wife, a woman of small brains, had made up her mind that he had never discovered the theft of the diamonds, or he would assur edly have spoken to her on the sub ject, and that at the end of a year he would be as glad aB in the old days to welcome her back to Sunnyside. At the very last Bellairs forced himself to kiss the woman, whom he regarded as a thief, on her forehead...

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XIX. Sheila might not have allowed Mrs. Murphy to leave her so quickly had she not observed Shamus coming to her. "Shamus," she exclaimed, "such a queer old woman lias been here. 1 have just parted from her because slie would not stay. She was dressed in the style of a hundred years ago, ■but I think she was really very nice, and she seemed deeply interested in me, Shamus. I fouud the poor thing with her eyes full of tears and her face scarlet as though she had been crying, and I am sure that O'Donneii was rude to her. Do you know, Sha mus, dear, that she mad such a very funny request.' She begged and im plored of me not to go outside of the grounds unless I had someone with me. Of course, if you. were a., " cine : I should be quite all right, but that darling 'The O'Doyle does not care to walk much a...
DON'T CROSS YOUR LEGS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
DON'T CROSS YOUR LEGS. "Don't cross your legs" if you wish to avoid appendicitis, is a theory ad vanced by several noted surgeons. In fact, one goes so far as to say that if people never crossed their legs the dread complaint would entirely dis appear. The facts are these. Crossing the legs cramps and squeezes the delicate vermiform appendix. The appendix is irritated, and inflammation sets in. Intense pain comes, and then, sudden ly and silently, you are on your back, the sweet and heavy fumes of chloro form begin to numb you, and the ap pendicitis specialist bends over you with a sharp knife. Gibbs: "I tell you, no one can fool my wife." Dibbs: "Then how did you get her?"
NATURE'S COLD STORAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
NATURE'S COLD STORAGE. In the course o£ his travels Mr. lleury Seebohm. the famous orni thologist, once visited the Petchora Hiver, which flows from the Ural Mountains into the Arctic Ocean, op posite to Nova Zemblii. Along the lower part of the river stretched the tundra, a dreary, uninhabited tree less swamp, covered with ice and snow. Nevertheless, he found that this unattractive spot was the summer home of almost half the bird popula tion of the Old World. The traveller reached the region in early April. Forest and tundra were as devoid of life as the Desert of Sa hara; but a change was near. Sud denly summer broke over the scene; the ice in the river split and disap peared, the banks steamed in the sun, and innumerable birds of all sizes and colors appeared within forty eight hours. The frozen tundra be came a wide moor, diversified with numerous bogs and lakes. Jt was co vered with moss, lichens, *lieath-like plants, dwarf birch, and millions of acres of cloudberries, cranberr...

BRAINS IN THE FEET. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 July 1914
BRAINS IN THE FEET. The necessity for combining intelli gence with muscles anil nerves in athletics is emphasised by Mr. E. \V. Hjcrtberg, coach of the Swedish Olym pic team, in "Athletics in Theory and Practice." All those who train with the idea of winning prizes on the ath letic track, he says, should always remember that tile brain plays an im portant part in training as well as in contests. Ho points out that in tile old days it was usually held to be enough to train the body, and the more drastic the training the more likely success was thought to be. Nowadays it it necessary, if a man has to win success on the track, that he should have "'brains in his feet," as the saying goes. Mr. Hjcrtberg points out that many contests have been lost by good athletes just be cause they did not think quickly or accurately enough. To-day, in training, brain and nerves are given even more attention than the body. Furthermore, an athlete is allowed to think for himself and is al lowed to eat p...
