GOOD MANNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 21 May 1914

GOOD MANNERS. Have you ever heard any one say, "Oh, if I were rich I'd have things nice then"? Did you ever notice whe ther she had things as nice without being rich as she could? Just ns the rich and poor use the same standard jf spelling, ns free to one as to the other, so they can both use the same standard of good breeding 'if they choose. Good manners cost attention, rind that is all. The same man or wo man who would feel disgraced to write i for I, or to spell poorly, thinks it is no matter if he eats with his knife, keeps his hat on in the house, or is re miss in the many little things that' sustom has decided ought to be done. There is the same reason for being remiss in spelling as in politeness. Politeness is like an ajr-cushion— though there may be noiffing in it, it eases the jolt of this world wonder fully." That one is poor is no ex cuse for rough ways; neither does it excuse a siack table service. It is the little things that make living delight ful. Mrs. Whitney is n...

CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 21 May 1914

CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. From about the fifth or sixth year children arc apt to make firm friend ships with their small contemporaries. This should be a watchful period for mothers, for ihese 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. livery 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 scr vauts's hall, which are not quite those of the cultured classes. 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 their ...

SYSTEM IN HOUSEWORK. "I have so many tilings to do I don't know which to begin first." Such, rrere tho words that greeted me oil the threshold of a friend's house. Yes, that's just it. How many house wives could and do say the same thing ! And whilst they stand _ debating what they will'do first the" time is going in which something'at least might hav* been done towards it.

There existt no uncertainly, so the work is promptly commenced and finished. The following are very escelleut rules :— _ 1.

LADIES' COLUMN. FOR MARRIED TOLK. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 21 May 1914

LADIES' COLUMN. FOR MARRIED TOLK. society requires that, whatever then private relations, husband and wife lace the world as a unit, harmonious, and with interests identical. One tiling good form imperatively demands—that by no mischance, no loss of self-c ntrol, shall fanlily 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 when the matter may be of im portance to us.

HENCE KOREA'S BACKWARDNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 21 May 1914

HENCE KOREA'S BACKWARD NESS. In " Korea both :npn and women smoke pipes having tiny metal bowls, and stems so long that generally. assist ance must be summoned to light tliem. As they'arc inveterate smokers, and their pipes hold so little tobacco that they, must be' refilled and relighted every few mi mites, the greater portion-; of their time is thus consumed. Ifc is,' ihcrcfore, safe to say that one of the prime causes of. ICoroa's back . ivardness in " development is the na tional pipe. • Another cause is found in the greed and shortsightedness of the Imperial policy in appropriating" individual wealth' wherever' found. Thus all am bition is destroyed, and no native will strive for more than a bare livelihood, knowirg that anything lie may accu mulate over and above that will be taken from him by. the tax collector.

THICK OR THIN SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 21 May 1914

THICK OR THIN 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 loss to cereal growers. The age of tlie 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, ...

LIME FOR THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 21 May 1914

LIME FOR THE SOIL. The nature of the lime used de pends upon the purpose for which it is required. Lime is applied to the soil for the following objects:—(a) To lighten heavy clays; (b) to sweet en sour soils; (c) to supply plant iood. In the first case, either unslack-ad lime (powdered' quicklimc), or quite freshly slacked lime is the most ef fective, the action on the c&y being both of a mechanical aud chemical nature, breaking up the colloidal clay particles when the lime is slacked in contact with the clay. Slacked lime is much less effective, as the action is only a mechanical one, as there is no combination of the lime with the siHcates of the clay.

VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 21 May 1914

VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." Large crops are not always profit able crops, and the finest looking ani mal does not always give the largesi net return. For generations we have been taught and urged to grow bigge. crops, unmindful of the relation 01 in creased cost to increased production. The value o£ increased production al ways depends upon whether or not It is economically secured, i.e., upon whether the margin of profit an acre is increased or not. Another important factor always to be kept in mind is the relation which any part of the farm enterprise bears to the whole. A crop judged by It self might bo profitable and yet the system might be unprofitable. For example, timothy hay might prove a .good crop in any one year, or even two or three years, but eventually the yield must decline, because a system of farming with this crop alone would not be likely to maintain fer tility, so that the system could not bo called profitable. On the other hand, clover might not prove to be a mon...

TO PREVENT HAIR-BALL. l-iunareas ot calves aie every yea; Irom one cause or another, and very ouen the farmer is at a loss to knov. the cause ot death. Practical experi ence counts all the time. Mr. J. A. Bird, of Duranbox, Tweed ltiver, N.S.W., is a dairy farmer who, when a calf dies, wants to know the reason why. He had some .calves die.
