One delegate to tho Federation de clared that the costumes worn by the girls lu the pageant were modest in comparison with some of the ex treme fashionable etfects worn by cer tain delegates at a dance which re presented the pursuit of Daphne by Apollo.

With the awakening of his mental energies, the boy realised that there was something wrong in the preval ent method of breaking horses. His childish soul recoiled at the cuffs and blows with which drivers were wont to subdue their animals. Throughout his schooldays the subject of his com positions was "Man's Best Friend-the Noble Horse." His most ambitious effort was a rhyme, in which ho sang the gospel of "kindness, patience and firmness' in dealing with the brute creation. The -wrning point in his boyhood came on his twelfth birthday. His father, now an extensive dealer in horses, presented to him an unbroken pony, which the lad proceeded to train a»ier his own ideas. Little attention was paid to his manoeuvres with the pony until neighbors beg...
THE NEED OF ENJOYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 10 July 1914
THE NEED OF ENJOYMENT. During moments of rest aud re pose, do not think ot doing tilings, but think of. enjoying tilings. The man who is always thinking ot do ing tilings may produce tho quantity for u time, but tile time will be short, and the (tuality will be absent entire ly.

A few moments of such thoughts are usu ally sullicient to restore full mental vigor; bnt those moments must bo. given over completely to thoughts ot enjoyment. The doing o£ tilings - must be wholly forgotten for the time being, and the mind must give Its all to the pleasing plct'.fre that it has choBeu. to entertain.
