SYDNEY'S SINFUL SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 27 May 1914

SYDNEY'S SINFUL SUNDAY. The Public Morals Committee of the Presbyterian Assembly "Regrets that there is no observable diminution in the volume of the human stream that sets towards recreational resorts on Sunday." On Sabbath after Sabbath see them pass the churches by; While Presbyterians lament, let's find the reason why. Though "seventhly" bo oiit of date, and brevity's the aim Of many a modern preacher, still the quality's still the same As when the Reverend John Macduff preached sermons sad. and long, And who'd accept a Sunday choir for Sunday's boating song? When joys of Sydney Harbor to tli3 Sydney people call, The wonder is that anyone will go to church at all. It may be right; it may be wrong; Persnurkus will not seek To justify the way tliey spend their holiday per week. ^or yet can Peter well condemn the pleasant things they do, For, if the honest truth be told, gay Peter does 'em too. When he was young he went to ' church because he had to go, But now he's wise to all the...

CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 27 May 1914

CHARACTER. There is no instinct implanted in the breast of man so universally ac tive as the love of character. In this respect, the prince on his throne, the judge on his bench, the merchant in his counting-house, are alike. Touch them in whatever pertains to. their worldly interest-their business or their wealth-and your interference, though it may indeed be rebuked, will yet be borne with comparative indif ference. Tamper with them even in the matter of life, trifle with their health, expose them to disease, and still you inflict not a deadly wound; but let the pestiferous breath of slander breathe upon their fair fame, you touch their happiness in its mo3t J vital part. I To a man of virtuous sensibilities ! and refined feelings, there is nothing ' in life that can be placed in competi ? t.ion with it. It is. the chain that holds him to society, and the talis man that preserves his rank. Cast a mildew upon this, and you convert his moments of pleasure into sea sons of anxiety an...

CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 27 May 1914

CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. From about the fifth or sixth year children are apt to make firm friend ships with their small contemporaries. This should be a watchful period for mothers, for these early friendships have a marked influence on the mind, morals and manners of a child. Nearly every character is moulded very largely by early companionship and surroundings. Every mother should take care to be her children's companion as far as possible, for she may be quite sure that if they are left to the care of servants, they will at the best only attaiu the ideal manners and customs of the nursery or ser vants's hall, which are not quite those of the cultured classeB. Children re quire the companionship of little folk of their own age? and a mother should be so much her children's friend that she. knows all their associates, and is able to nip in the bud any acquaint ance -which-, she thinks undesirable. The mother who, to save (herself fa tigue, lets her children seek compan ions among th...

THICK OR THIN SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 27 May 1914

THICK OR THm SOWING. The quality of seed which should be sown depends on a number of cir cumstances, such as character of the soil, its moisture, freedom from weeds, size, germinating power, age of the seed, and again on the .time of sowing, the nature of the plant, method of sowing, depth, etc. All these factors have to be considered; but in general we think it may be said that seed is sown more often too thickly than the reverse, especially when the operation is performed by hand. It is a waste of seed, and, moreover, detrimental in so far as it tends to produce weakly. plants, sub ject to disease, and also to produce cereals that "lodge," a, great source of lose to cereal growers. The age of the. seed is an Important factor. f Old seed1 has lost some, of its- germinating power, so new seed should be used.

TO PREVENT HAIR-BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 27 May 1914

TO PREVENT HAIR-BALL. Hundreds of calves die every year from one cause or another, and very often the farmer is at a loss to know the cause of death. Practical experi ence counts all the time. Mr. J. A. Bird, of Duranbox, Tweed River, N.S.W., is a dairy farmer who, when a calf dies, wants to know the reason why. He had some calves die. He opened the stomach of one and found a hard mass of hair like a piece of felt and about the size of a tennis ball, which had collected through the calves sucking the ears of each oth er at feeding time, which is a com mon practice among young calves. Mr. Bird tried many means of prevention, and finds that a small quantity of fresh cow manure mixed with separ ated milk, and. allpwed to stand in the Bun all day before being rubbed on the ears and bellies of-the calves at feeding time completely breaks the bad habit.

Empire Day. LISMORE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 27 May 1914

Empire Day. LISMORE. Empire Day was celebrated at the local school on Friday. The children were assembled at the ordinary hour, but the usual time-table was not fol lowed. Lessons in geography and his tory lessons, bearing on the rise of sea power and expansion of the Empire, were given, and a program of read ings, recitations and songs of an im perial and patriotic character was ren dered by the children. Mona Liston and Lyell Lakey, and May Bustard and Doris Schack, contributed pianoforte duets. The programme concluded with the singing of the National Anthem. The children then assembled around the flag-pole and saluted the flag, and the head teacher, Mr M. F. Maher, called for cheers for the King, the Empire, and Australia, to which the children lustily responded. The celebrations were continued in the afternoon, when a large number of parents, ex-scholars, and friends at tended. Prior to a sports programme, addresses, interspered with songs by the children, were given. Mr S. J. G...

DOWN "WITH THE PEDESTRIAN. Owing to the cver-increasing perils of the traffic in the city streets the pedestrian haa been much discussed of late by motorists, who are anxious to keep the pedestrian in his proper place, which seems to <he on the foot path, and nowhere else. It is there fore not surprising that the pedes trian, after reading the opinions ex pressed about him by motorists, and ;enjoying a hearty supper, should have jdreamt that he was present-a soli jt^ry pedestrian, at a meeting of in clignant motorists, and heard the fol lowing speech: ?

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Pickles may be kept from becoming mouldy by laying a little 'bag of mus tard on the top of the pickle jar. Should the smell of burnt food per meate the house, immediately put vinegar on to boil, and th5 odor will be counteracted. Hot water used both internally and externally is highly recommended by medical men as a cure for insomnia Bathing the feet in hot water is said to be particularly efficacious. A few drops of castor oil will be found most beneficial to drooping ferns. Drop the castor oil on the roots, and soak the ferns i.i a pall of water all night. In a week a marked improvement will foe noticeable. Eggs often buret when boiling if not quite fresh. To prevent this, be fore boiling make a puncture with a needle in large end of egg, passing through shell and the skin inside. Through this fracture the expanding gas will make good its escape.

HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914

HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. Moat of us talk of glaciers and Ice bergs familiarly; but how many know how they are formed? When snow falls in the Polar re gions, or at high altitudes, Mr. A. G. Ogilvie explained to a large audience of young folks in the theatre of the Royal Geographical Society at burl ington Gardens, it does not melt, or it melts very little, even during the summer. So the layers of snjw are constantly increasing. When the slopes are steep, the accumulated snow falls as an avalanche; but ou a high tableland there is no such, es cape for it. But the snow, falling year after year, does not build up a great snow mountain, because the" lower layers are pressed down by the great weight, the air is squeezed out, and granular ice is formed. This downward motion is tha essen tial feature In the glacier. First the grains of ice are no Digger than a pin's head; but they gradually, as the pressure increases, get bigger ana big ger, and the large pneB absorb the smalle...

WEANING THE FOAL. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914

WEANING THE FOAL. The hardest thing to overcome in weaning foals Is the actual loss of the companionship of the mother, which causes the colt to worry and fret. Horses are nervous animals, and the colt, being deprived of his "best friend," often spends much time in running up and down his paddock or stall, neighing, pawing and -whimp ering in a vain effort to find an es cape which may lead at least to com pany of his kind, if not of his mother. To take the place of his dam, the best possible substitute is another colt. Where a colt of the same age is not available, the use of a yearling ing arrangements are such that the yearling gets his share of the feed given. For the best results, it is ne cessary to keep the foal which is be ing weaned out of flight and hearing of the dam, as every time they see or hear each other only serves to pro long the period of fretting by reviving their memories. The main point in the weaning, all things considered, IB feeding the colt. On no account (a...

THE MISSION OF FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914

THE MISSION OF FLOWERS. Mr. Rider Haggard as a novelist has thrilled thousands, but never, perhaps, did his pen do better work than when it formed the following words, constituting, as they do, an enthusiastic and an effective "appre ciation" of flowers: "I adore flowers," says some lady, contemplating a bouquet of orchids or prize chrysanthemums that others have raised at her expense. But she never watched the wonder of their growth; she never saw the shoot start to life; or the pseudo-bulb form; or day by day the flower spike ma ture. All that such a one cares for is the blaze of color when it comes, if even she really cares for this. With those who love the flowers, who, whatever their opportunities, are gar deners born, it is otherwise. The poor woman, for example, worn out with want, a dweller, perhaps, in the grimy slum of some vast city, who nurtures on the window-sill of her one room a cactus or a rose cut ting. When the cactus opens it3 gorgeous dazzling cup, white as the r...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES A non-wowser cocky from Wyal catchem, or thereabouts, wandered in to thfe Continuous Picture Pavilion, and after blinking beerily at a cow boy picture fell asleep as soon as it was followed by a love story. Right on- through the next picture he slept, until came the usual short interval, followed again by a repeti tion of the cowboy film he had al ready seen. The corn-coaxer gazed in astonish ment at the familiar cowboys and In-' dians careering across the sheet. "What day is it?" he asked in a whisper of a lady attendant. ; It was Saturday, but the girlie told him it was Monday. "Then I've slept right through bun day," gasped the cocky. "How do you know?" asked the uniformed damsel. "Because," said the cocky, "I saw that picture before I fell asleep in here on Saturday."-Kalgoorlie "Sun." The defendant was 55 years of age.

PHILOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 3 June 1914

PHILOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. Anybody with money in hand can select and purchase furniture, and any hands can place said furniture around the four walls of a parlor, boudoir, or bedroom; but there Is furniture and furniture, furnishing and furnishing, and therein lies the philosophy we write of; not that inanimate wood has this of itself, but the maker of each piece of furniture, be it of sim ple pine or walnut, the old-time ma hogany, or the much-prized oaken fur niture of today, has wrought into it, with each planing and chiselling, each twist and curve, the mind of the mas ter who controls its shapeliness; as hi eye is artistic and delights itself in the beautiful, so he wills the block of raw material shall acquire a like symmetry and chasteness. Yet, granted all this prepared in or der for the purchaser, the household er is not by this assured a tastefully furnished home. A taste to fashion is one thing, and a taste to select and arrange another. The buyer should consider not alone ...

STRANGE TIMEKEEPERS. ... To ascertain the time at night the !Apache Indians employed a gourd on Which the stars of the heayens were marked. As the constellations rose ta the -sky the Indian referred to his gourd and found out the hour. By turning the gourd around he could tell the order in which the constella tions might be expected to appear. The hill people of Assam reckon time and distance by the number of quids of betel nutB chewed. It will be remembered how, according to Wash ington Irving, the Dutch Colonial As sembly was invariably dismissed at the last puff of the third pipe of to bacco of Governor Wouter Van Twil ler.

DRAMA IN REAL LIFE.. Most writers of Action unnecessari ly tax their imagination. If they woulu only keep a scrap-book filled with cuttings from the daily press they would never have to think out good plots or dramatic situations. John Frederick Wilson, a traveller, of Angel-road, Brixton, was married in ioi)7, possibly to celebrate the golden jubilee, when he was only 22 years of age. In three years he had wearied of his marital responsibilities, and, according to the custom of some parts oi Brixton, he loft home one morning, and forgot to return. After eight years of single blessedness he had doubts about the joys of bachelorhood, and, ; recking nothing of the law relating 1 to bigamy, he led another lady to the altar. Meantime his first wife ha'i been drifting down the road that leads to the police station and His Majes ty's gaols. She was arrested on Mon day for some minor offence, and tak en to the Kensington-road Police Sta tion. Every self-respecting woman in Brixton carries ...
