SYSTEM IN HOUSEWORK. "I have bo many things to do 1 don't know which to begin first." Such were fcho words that greeted me on the threshold of a friend's house. Yes, that's just it.

This troublesome state of uncertain ty nrises through lack of system. If the work bo properly and methodi cally arranged, much titno may bo saved as well as worry. There exist? no uncertainly, so the work is promptly commenced and finished. " The following arc very oxcollont rules :— 1. Arrange your work methodically, and then attend to it in the ordei in which it is set forth. 2. Never begin moro than you can finish at one time. 3. Never luideruiko to perforin im possibilities.

Not So Green As He Looked. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 14 May 1914
Not So Green As He Looked. A mnn with a wife who has her own ways about doing tilings is lucky enough to catch her now and then. "My dear," he said the other morn ing as he was dressing, "I think you were right when you told me last night that there were burglars in the house." "Why?" she asked nervously. "Because all the money that I had in my pockets when I went to bed is gone." "Well," she said, with an I-told-you so air, "if you had been brave and got up and shot the wretch you would have had your money this morn ing." "Possibly, my dear, possibly," he said. "But if I had done so I would have been a widower." She laughed softly then and gave half of it back to him.

Spiteful. "My husband considered a very long time before he proposed to me. He was very careful." "Ah, it's always those careful peo ple who get taken in!" Time was when there were 110 look ing-glasses. In those days men grew long beards and women wore th-v: hair flowing. When the looking-glass came men shaved themselves to dis cover what they were like; :in:l (lion it was that women begun to worry whether their hats were on straight. There has never been a problem thai has caused such waste of time or so much distraction as this question of the straight hat. Some women like children, some like charities, and some like men.

SIZE OF POTATO CUTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 14 May 1914
SIZE OF POTATO CUTTINGS. Many potato growers cut tubers In to pieces containing one, two or more eyes, laying greater stress on the num ber of eyes than on the size of the cutting. Extensive experiments at the Indiana station and elsewhere prove that of thb two factors, number of eyei and weight of pieces, the latter is the more Important, Whether it has one or many eyes it is important that the •eed piece be heavy enough to furnish abundant nutriment to the shoot* which spring from it. A single eye may give rise to several stalks, for eacl eye is a compound bud, or cluster oi buds. In one series of experiment It was found that the number of stalks growing in a hill was less dependent on the number of eyes than on the size of the seed piece, whether cut oj entire. After numerous experiment! touching on almost every aspect of this subject the investigator advised that tubers be cut so as to mal;e eacfc piece of a consistent size or weight whatever the number of eyes tha' might fall t...

WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 14 May 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. Sometimes, when nothing goes just right, And worry reigns supreme, When heartache fills the eyes with mist, And all things useless seem, There's just one thing can drive away The tears that scald and blind— Someone to slip a strong arm round And whisper, "Never mind." No one has ever told just why Those words such comfort bring; Nor why that whisper makes cur cares Depart on hurried wing. Yet troubles say a quick "Good-day!" We leave them far behind When someone slips an arm around, And whispers "Never mind." Cut love must prompt that soFt caress— The love must aye be true; Or at that tender, clinging touch No heartsease comes to you. But if the man be moved by love, Sweet comfort you will find When someone slips an arm arouivi. And whispers "Never mind."
CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 14 May 1914
CHAPTER XI. . While Sheila was happy as girlcoull be, without, as she expressed it, a care in. the world, very different was the case of Margaret Bellairs. It was true that her husband never reproach ed her, that he never, by word or deed alluded to that dark tragedy of the past, but the old tenderness, the ar dent and real love, which had been her portion and which had made her so very happy, seemed—as far as she could tell—to cease to exist. Bellairs was kind to her, paying her every possible attention, hut he never took her hand as of yore and pressed it in one of his, nor did he look into her eyes with the loving-kindness of for mer days. These things the unhappy woman believed were reserved for Sheila and Sheila alone. Bellairs could not pet the pretty girl enough, but he never turned to his wife with the old dearly longed-for look in his eyes. Moreover, there was no doubt but that Peter Bellairs, K.C., no longer absolutely trusted Margaret. It was he who paid the bills as they...

HONEYMOON TRAMPS. The average bride when she changes her orange blossoms and her resplendent wedding dress for the more prosaic travelling costume, does not usually have to prepare for such a journey as that undertaken by Mr. anil Mrs. Grantham, 01 Alberta. After walking 7000 miles and being held up a dozen times, Norman Grant ham, of Calgary, who, with his bride, formerly Miss Mabel Ryan, of Minne apolis, started last spring on a honey moon tramp around the world, is back in Calgary for a time. Mrs. Grantham's health broke down when the trampers reached Brindisi, on the Mediterranean, forcing the temporary abandonment of the trip.
