FIND SOMETHING GOOD TO DO. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 July 1912
FIND SOMETHING GOOD TO DO. When the world goes wrong, and life Seems to hold few joys for you, And the days with toil are rife, Then find something good to do. When the stream of life flows rough, Aim to make it smooth and true; For the way is clear enough — Just find something good to do. When your skies are dull and grey, Make them blossom forth anew; All along life's rugged wasr There is something good to do. Do not stop to grieve or fret — Time is precious, toilers few; Care and wrong you'll soon forget When you've something good to do. When the days are dark, oh, then, - Keep life's pleasant things in view; For the sun will shine again, If you've something good to do. ; God will bless each kindly deed Of His toilers, many or few; He will bless the hearts that J^eed And find something good to do.

HINTS FOR DAIRYMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 July 1912
HINTS FOR DAIRYMEN. There are directions to which sec ond and perhaps third-class cream may be traced which are capable of recti fication. Unsuitable cans, a careless regard for the absolute cleanliness of everything * in connection with the separator, unclean and improperly constructed dairy, smoking not being strictly prohibited; a want of clean liness in the dairy,- filthy bails, and a lack of regard for the welfare of the cows, are some of the causes of sec ond-class cream. The -beginner, in dairying should pay special attention to his cans. The best are those with-., .out seams, for they can be the better cleaned. After use they should be washed with cold water arid scrub bed, and then scalded, or, if possible, placed over a steam vent for a few minutes. It is not everyone who has a steam vent, so boiling water will answer the purpose. All items in connection with the separator should be treated similarly to^the cans. In dentations in the cans are to be avoid ed, and similarly ...

POTATO CROPPING. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 July 1912
POTATO CROPPING. Too much importance cannot be at tached- to the choice of potato seed. Potatoes run out so rapidly that un less great care is taken in the selec tion of seed they soon become prac tically .worthless to the grower. ' The life of a potato may be put down at from 15 to 20 years. At any rate even with the most intelligent selection it ?is very short, and when they begin to run out they become more susceptible to disease, and their productive capa city is lessened considerably. All stocks degenerate in time and require renewal. It is therefore necessary to continually change the seed, if not annuaHv at. least fivfirv Rpnnnrl nr third year. The same variety may be grown, but the seed should come from a different district. ' Placed side by side, the foliage' of introduced seed will be dark green with a rich, luxuri ant growth, while that of local seed which has begun to run out will have a much less vigorous appearance. The success of some varieties will depend largely upo...

IMPROVING THE BIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 5 July 1912
IMPROVING THE BIBLE. Many authorities have agreed in pronouncing the King James version of the Eible a model of style; but the Rev. Rodolphus Dickinson thought otherwise, and he, therefore, put forth a new translation. * In his preface he said, concerning the old version: 'There is much in elegance and inaccuracy in the# se lection of words, the structure of sen tences, and in every compartment of composition.' Here are a few of the good doctor's so:called improvements. We prefer the old. 'When thou are beneficent, let not thy left hand be conscious of what thy right hand performs.' 'Contemplate the lilies of the field, how they advance.' 'Be not, therefore, anxious for to morrow* since that will claim corre spondent attention.' 'Then His disciples, approaching, said to Him, 'Art Thou conscious that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this observation?' But He, an swering, said, 'Every plantation which My heavenly Father has not culti vated shall be extirpated.' And Peter, r...
