DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 26 June 1914
DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. "Anyone who has not the nature of a'cabbago is nourotlc," said Dr. Leon ard Guthrie in a lecture on "The Ner vous Child" before the Child Study Society. He gave no definite advice as to what should bo done with ner vous children, but he asked that they should bo treated with sympathy, and that their parents should not put down all the children's troubles to some form of organic disease. He de scribed the night-terrors of nervous children as occurring between the years of three and eight. It the cliild suffers from slight indigestion, ho he said, it is Geldoin terrified by pain, 'but by horrible faces. A stuffy bed room will make It dream of being strangled. Cold limbs often cause a child to get terrors of icebergs or ava anches, and lying in an uncom fortable position brings dreams of tor ture chambers. All its mental re sponses to sensations are quadrupled In its dreams, and they bring on in tensified momories of past troubles only faintly connected with t...

THE PIGGERY. WINTER PIG POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 26 June 1914
THE PIGGERY. WINTER PIG POINTS. Keep the pigs warm. They will grow nil tlio winter it comlitloiiB aro right. To winter pigs at a standstill is throwing away the fooil they eat. They lire so starved and neglected that tiiey draw'upon the little Tat in their bodies to keep them nlive. Where is the common-sense or thrift, in such methods? Start out with right ideas about what real economy in feeding is. Starving is not economy; it is tlio costliest tiling one can do. Satisfied profitable pigs will grunt, hut tlicy do not squcil. One thing no pig grower can af ford to do without is a good feeding trough. Big cracks sometimes take, more than the hc."s do. Statistics show that tlio manure from each pig Is worth .C2 u year. You see it will pay to save this manure.
UNSKILFUL TEMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 26 June 1914
UNSKILFUL TEMPER. Ono would think tlmt there could be no end to the resources ot anger. Men use It In so squandering a way, that one is surprised that the stock does not run out. But even this wastefulness of the precious commo dity is not censurable as the want of skill and good taste with which it is employed. It is not economised. It is not put to good purposes. It is squandered. It is not skilfully shot, as a marksman shoots at a target. Indeed, men show clearly enough that they do not know the value of anger. A good article of anger is worth far more than the best gun-powder, and ought to foe used with an economy at least equal to that of the sportsman, who never burns powder needlessly. What should bo thought of a sportsman who should go on firing his gun out of the window? Or what of one who should go about the yard, the garden, ex ploding liis gun every hour into the air, hitting nothing? Yet so do men let off the precious force of temper Invaluable treasure of anger. Is ang...
THE TEMPTATION OF MONA GIBBONS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 26 June 1914
THE TEMPTATION OF n| MONA GIBBONS. By HILDA II. SIIAW. "Miss Gibbons Buys there's a mia take in the change, Mr. Carter." "Where? Let me see," John Carter answered, hurriedly, at the same time taking the money, wrapped up In a bill, from the hand of the little girl who was employed at Jones and Still warth's drapery establishment. A mo ment Inter lie looked at the child in terrogatively. "Von are sure, .Mary, thai you haven't dropped a sovereign? ' "Quite sure," the child answered, with a shake of her liend. "It was 1 sovereign Miss Gibbons said was miss ing." Without saying anything further to the easli girl, John Carter, the cashier, took a sovereign from the till and wrapped it carefully, along with the other change, in the hill, and gave it of the assistants at the fancy coun ter. "It's a strange thing," he said to himself, with a puzzled frown on his face. "I could have sworn that I'd given the correct change. I seem to see the sovereign along with the sil ver. Still," lie added...
CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 26 June 1914
CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. The education ot an infant should commence ns soon a3 It is born m good or bad habits aro formed ourlns childhood. If, for example, a baby ir fed every time it cries, it aeon begins to understand that by crying it ge!3 what it desires, but by sratifyim; >'s demands against our b^'.ter judgmcn wo arc instilling into the unconscioivi infant a lesson in scltluluicss and greed which may persist through its whole life. A habit scarcely ie.is harmful is giving It something to suck to "keep it quint." Many parents Iciivo the duty of in* stilling goofl habits into their chil* dren to the teachers In schools, for getting that by tlio time school life begins habits have been formed th-i. may mar or malce the child s career tor life. Habits anil character are bound together; one cannot have a good character with bad habits. The habit of obedience Is one of the firs, to be enforced. Very early in life a child will recognise rlfiht from vrons. but perhaps at first the w...
GIVE THE RUNTS A CHANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 26 June 1914
GIVE THE RUNTS A CHANCE. "Pigs is pigs," you know. Some are large enough to crowd the smaller ones away from the trough. The ones that are in the trough are the ones that put the profits hi your pockets; but the ones that try to get in and can't are the ones that pick those same profits out of your poc kets. If the little is evenly divided, you' play a winning hand. Just parti Lion off a corner and put a trough in it and make the entrance just large enough to admit the pickpockets. Put the host of the feed in there and you'll find that you'll be able to cotuo out ahead in the game of "pigs is pigs."
GOOD PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 26 June 1914
GOOD PRICES. Breeders of pure-bred slock aro surely well pleased with the high prices obtained for their pigs. Com pared with values' for dairy cattle, it must be admitted that pigs arc Had ing a decklcdly better market. "There is every evidence that pig farming is meeting with more favor than hither to, and that prices for good breeding stock will be oven better in tho fu ture. The necessity for careful selec tion of breeding pigs cannot be too strongly emphasised. ,
HOME, WIFE, AND SATURDAY NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 26 June 1914
HOME, WIFE, AND SATURDAY NIGHT. Happy is the man who lias a littlo homo and a littlo angel in it ol a Saturday night; a house, no matter how little, provided it will hold two or so; no matter how humbly furnish ed, provided there is hope in it. Let the winds blow-close the curtains. What it they are plain calico, without border, tassel, or any such thing? Let tlio rain come down-heap up the lire. No matter if you haven't a candle to bless yourself with, for what a beautiful light glowiug coal makes-just light to talk by, not' aloud, as in the highways; not rapid ly, as in the hurrying world; . but softly, slowly, whisperingly, with pauses between for the storm without and the thought, within to till up with. Then wheel the sofa around by the lire; no matter if the sofa is a settee, uncusliioned at that, if so bo it is just long enough for two and a half in it. llow sweetly the music of sil ver bells from the time to come falls on the listening heart then! How mournfully swell the ch...
PIGS AT BAROMETERS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 26 June 1914
PIGS AT BAROMETERS. Probably the hist thing one would expect to indicate chauges in the wea ther is a pig's tail. The skipper of a Norwegian sailing ship, who usually has a porker or two on board Bays one could scarcely have a more reli able barometer. When a weather dis* Uirbance is coming on, the tails of the pigs straighten out, and their ears droop. When the barometer gets be low I'D.50, the pigs seek shelter, and the storm is pretty certain to burst within Jive hours. But a high baro meter puts a beautiful twist iu the tails, and the ears stand jauntily stiff and with a trille of a cant forward.

A BURIAL IN TONGA. CI5H13MONY IN SOUTH SKA 1SLK. By To Pana. The big chief was dead. Almost us rapidly as the force that sends news speeding along strands of wire under seas and over land sped the mouth* carricd message. It penetrated into neat villages in the interior, and travelled to palm shaded huts strewn along the sands guarded by spray cov ered reefs. The big chief died last night. Tluit was the message. Out to tiny islands it went, to Isolated plantations, to parties at kava, to head men" in the midst of harangu ing their people, to college students poring over books. The big chief died last night. It was enough. Kespect is Instinct with the Tongan. Custom, habit has it, that all people shall be at the ceremony of laying great men at rest. And the big chief WAS a great man. iio had worked well for his country; step by step mounted higher until he saw over the palm tops and view the sea and the spray lrom atar, and the people from the level places jumpeu at his bidding. The b...
WITH VILLA IN MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 3 July 1914
WITH VILLA IN MEXICO. "Tho army," explains John Hold, writing from Juarez, Mexico, "about 200 horsemen and 500 infantry, were drawn up In a groat hollow square two ranks dee]), completely surround ing that immense pJnza in front of tho race track. They woro in all stages of attire, of course, but much more uniform than the federals at Ojouagu. About two-thirds of them had blue denim suits (overall stuff), and the rest more or less kluikl. But ovcry soldier had a different bright colored handkerchief around his neck, and a different colored scrape strap ped on Ills saddle-ail colors, vivid and faded, and mottled like leopard skins. Their faces were STKONGLY INDIAN.' for the most part, very dark-there were small hoys not 11 years old, 1 should guess, too- but their riding boots were magnificently varied, some reaching to the hip, and ornamented down the sides with buckles like sil ver dollars. They rollicked around like kids, stealing rides on street cars, making football rushes at ea...

MAKES BODY TRANSPARENT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 3 July 1914
MAKES BODY TRANSPARENT. A new method o£ giving medical students instructions which, it is said, will largely obviate the necessity o£ dissection, will shortly bo put into practice at the Hahnemann Medical College, Philadelphia. Physicians and surgeons connected with the depart ment of anatomy are now perfecting the process, which originates through the recent discovery by a German scientist of a lluid by tho UBe of which the human body can too rendered transparent.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 3 July 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. To relieve toothache, rub baking soda rounil the tooth and rinse the moutli with hot water. To polish black marble clock rub over with olive oil and finish with a clean chamois leather. Varnished paper on walls should bo cleaned with a flannel dipped In weak tea and polished with a dry cloth. When baking small cakes or buns, ilour the tins instead o£ greasing them.

LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 3 July 1914
LIVES LOST BY LAUGHING. Ail accident, said to bo tlio most ex traordinary on record, occured at some oilllelds in the Baku district of Russia, ou the borders o£ the Caspian Sea. Ono of the big "gusher" oil wells became choked, and, with a view of blowing it clear, a number of iron drums full of nitro-glycerine were brought down by rail from Derbend, a.ul deposited over-night In a large shed, which was used by the men as a sort of canteen. The steward of this establishment, a Greek named Darios, opened one of the drums for some reason best known to himself, and "decanted" a small quantity of the dangerous liquid into a long thin glass used for mixing vod ka. This ho placed on a shelf behind the bar. Shortly afterwards there ontered a workman named Borko vitch, who was famous for the bois terous hilarity of his manner, and es pecially for his loud, resonant laugh too. The sight of nitro-glycerine in a vodka tumbler so excited his risibility that ho gave vent to a series of ston torian...
