CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 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 attain the ideal manners and customs of the nursery or ser vants's hall, which are not quite those of the cultured classes. Children re quire the companionsliip 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 their ...

LADIES' COLUMN. FOR MARRIED TOLK. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914

LADIES' COLUMN. FOR MARRIED TOLK. Society requires that, whatever their private relations, husband and wife face the world as a unit, harmonious, and with interests identical. One thing good form imperatively demands-that by no mischance, uo loss of self-c ntrol, shall family dis cords be revealed to strangers, chil dren or servants. An uncontrolled voice is always unmannerly and undig nified. A readiness to give up in little things is the most tactical appeal pos sible for a return of courtesy at other times whc-n the matter may be of im parlance to us.

THICK OR THIN SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914

THICK OR THIN SOWING. Tlie quality of seed which should be sown depends 011 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 thinlc 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 loss to cereal growers. The age of the seed is an important factor. Old seed has lost some of its germinating power, so new seed should be used. Grouchy Parent: No, sir, my daugh ter shall not marry you! Suitor: But your daughter wishes to, sir, and she told me just now that you would deny her nothing. Grouchy Parent: That, s...

CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914

CHAPTER XII. Mrs. Bellairs very naturally spent a most uncomfortable evening. It is^ true that she was able to write a re-' mistered letter to Ralph and to send :-f£ the eight hundred pounds, consist ing o£ Isaac Mordecai's dirty notes. She took it herself to the post-office, and was glad to find that she was in lime to catch the Australian mail. For. the present she could do no more for. her darling. Could she ever do anything more for him again? She i jlt not. tier head ached, her cheeks were flushed and, going into her bed room, she desired her maid on no ac count t- disturb her. Then she turn ed the key in the lock, hoping very earnestly that she might get some slqep. But, alas! it s far from her. She was almost wild with worry and thame, and the longer she lay on her ned the more terrified she grew. Mrs. Bellairs was not a bad woman, jut undoubtedly she was a weak one. S.s she lay on her beautiful pillow, tears filled her eyes and "rolled down her thin cheeks. What was she to r...

'Mrs. Bellairs continued her gloomy and hopeless meditation. By-and-bye she heard Sheila fly downstairs and the sound ot the motor-car driving away. She felt nearly mad. Her heart thumped within her. The thought of the miserable condition of her boy, and the contrast between him and Sheila gave her untold agony, ith the exception of the ser vants, she was now practically alone in the house. Her husband would not come home for several hours, and she had plenty of time to write to her unfortunate boy.

The necessity lor the audition of nitrogen is depend ent upon the success of the greeii crop and on the requirements of the , follbwing crops. For instance, if the green crop has grown well, potatoes and cereals on good or medium soil should not require the .help of any additional artificial nitrogen. Follow ing: a poor green crop, it may be ad visable to give either potatoes or cer eals, especially oats, the benefit of a topJdressing of lewt. nitrate of soda.

AGRICULTURE. THE FARM MANAGER. What He Should Be. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914

AGRICULTURE. THE FARM MANAGER. What He Should Be. This is what the farm manager should be:-Systematic, persistent, and methodical, but ever cheerful and hopeful. Ever learning something more about nature's powers, and keep ing in view the definite aim for re sults. Sucecssful farm-managers, like managers of great corporations, are men of ability to think logically and reason correctly; they are men of self control, endowed with self-confidence, but willing to learn from others. No man can succeed in a great enterprise without making use of information given by others. One may arrive at conclusions, and achieve results in a different manner from anyone else of which he has knowledge, but at the same time he has used information given by some lie. Farming informa tion of use now is of recent origin; new facts being ascertained every year, hence the successful farmers are' those who not only work diligent ly oil their own farms, but make use of all the information they can get from oth...

INCOME FROM MUSHROOMS. CLEVER JAPANESE METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914

INCOME FROM MUSHROOMS. CLEVER JAPANESE METHODS. In many countries the mushroom is a decidedly valuable product. We usually think of raising them in cel lars or other dark placcs, and can hardly picture them as growing in any other spot; yet the Japanese method is_ as peculiar as it- is in teresting, for with one species, known as Shiitake, experiments have been made of growing them in trees. The trees used are oak from 2c to 30 years of ape. They are cut down in the autumn, and at intervals of ain. or Gin. gashes are made with an nxe all up aid down the trunk. .The trees are then hauled to little frequented parts* of the forest and left there. At the cnl of three years mush rooms appear in the iucisions, and ?furnish a crop which lasts the ycai round, those of the autumn being .the most valuable. ? This method of raising mushrooms is probably the least troublesome in 1 ha entire world. What a vast diflcr oncc between this way of doing the ?work and the method used in under ground Pa...

AN ADMIRAL BOWLED. Admiral "Bob" Evans, who died so suddenly recently, has been called the Bcrcsford of the United States Navy, and there are almost as many good stories told about him as about our own Lord Charles., He was visiting the Brooklyn Navy Yard one day when a despatch was banded to him. His eyes were giving trouble just at that time, and when he fumbled for his eyeglasses he found that he had mislaid them. He held the paper close up to his eyes aud then some distance away, but he couldn't read it either way. He turned to an orderly who was standing near. "Read this for me, ray man," he said. The man shook his head. " I can't ; I'rh as ignorant as yourself, sir !"

IN THE HAUNTED ROOM. SIR HENRY LUCY VOUCHES FOR A GHOST STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 28 May 1914

IN THE HAUNTED ROOM. SIR HENRY LUCY VOUCHES FOR A GHOST STORY. Sir Henry Lucy quotes in the " CornhiU" from his diary a ghost .story told him by a lady bearing a highly-honoured name. Some years ago this lady was at Washington, at a time when Con gress was sitting and all the hotels were crowded. On applying for a room at one she had been accustom cd to frequent with her husband she was told the bouse was full. But evcniimlly the clerk got her a small plainly-furnished room on the sixth storey. She went to bed early, and slept soundly till she was awakened by the sensation of a hand touching her face, and a voice cried v.ith piteous, accent, "Oh. mother ! mother ! " She was profoundly startled, but ar guing with herself that it was only a dream, she determined to go to sleep again, and succeeded. Again she was awakened by a hand nervously stroking her face and tho blood-curdling cry, "Oh, mother ! mother !" It was no use trying to sleep. She got up. half dressed, lit a candle, got a...

DOOKIE. The wind-up meeting of the Dookie R C. Easter Monday Sports Club was held at the Dookie Hotel, Mr P. F. Lynch presidinq. The balance sheet showed that the school fund will be benefited to the extent of £113. Since the recent rains trappers in and around the district are obtaining a regular harvest in the sale of rab- bits. Each day loads are brought into Dookie and despatched from the local railway station to the metro- polis. For the past six weeks no less than 172 crates have been consigned from Dookie, approximately in all a gross weight of 10 tons 17 cwt, or 2440 pairs. These were purchased at 5d per pair, showing a very profitable return to the trappers. Interesting experiments are being carried out at Dookie College in the crossing of rams of various pure breeds with crossbred ewes for the production of early lambs. By the establishment of freezing works at Shepparton for   export trade, the production of lambs will become a matter of considerable importan...

RUINED EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

RUINED EYE. By Melville Davisson Post. (From "Saturday Evening Post.' Monsieur Joncquel waited oil the great terrace for the Viscount. Be low were the endless wheat fields, crimson dotted with poppies, the white road stretching away towards Paris, and the ancient village neSt ling into the Mil.. The chateau was almost sheer above. One could toss a stone from its terrace into the narrow street. The brilliant morning sun lay on the world, a vagrant wind wandering inland from the sea rippled the wheat fields into waves, and on the horizon now and then a puff of grey dust would spring up, and a big French limousine would crawl out like a black beetle on the white ribbon road. "Vraiment! It is wonderful-this picture!" he said. "But what is God about, to hang it before the door of the meanest man in Europe?" lie was dressed for the road-a light English tweed, a grey cap and motor goggles, of which the 'big green lenses gave him the huge eyes of some poisonous insect.

WEANING THE FOAL. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 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, anil the colt, being deprived of his ; "best friend," often spends much time in running up and down his paddock or stall, neighing, pawiug and whimp ering in a vain effort to find an es cape which may lead at least to com pany of liis kind, if not of his mother. To take thD 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 sight 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, is feeding the colt. On 110 accoun...

THE VALUE OF MONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 4 June 1914

THE VALUE OF MONEY. Someone lias said, "Money does not make the man; but things are apt to be much more comfortable when the man makes money." \\'c read of misers who love money just for the pleasure it gives them lo iioard it. to handle it, and to count it over; but sucl: cases are rare. Money is chiefly valued for what it can bring, and it seems foolish for a person to claim to care nothing for it. True, money alone cannot buy health, education, friends, ind happi ness; but if rightly valued and used, it can help to give us all ot" these. Of course, the environment, character, and habits of a person shape his views on all subjects. It' one has seriousiy felt the need of money, and is obliged to work hard to obtain it, lie will be much more likely to know its true value than the person to whom it has come without any effort of his own. It is said that women as a class do not know the value of money, and are prone to spend it foolishly. As far as my acquaintance goes, this is not tr...
