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.

'Mrs. Bellairs continued her gloomy and hopeless meditation. By-and-bye she heard Sheila fly downstairs and the sound of 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 hoy. She had no money to send him. All her things were paid for by her hus band, and the few jewels that were left in the shape of rings and a dia mond pendant she dared not part with, knowing that Peter would re mark their absence.

Should Wives Obey Their Husbands? [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 21 May 1914

Should Wives Obey Their Husbands ? This is a question that one would imagine offered but two unqualified answers, and yet, in the May number of "Everylady's Journal," just out, we find upwards of a dozen prominent people expressing various opinions od the subject And they are people of widely different station and profession. Men as far apart as Mr Bernard O'Dowd, the well known Australian poet, and Mr Paris Neabit, K.G.; men so olosely associated—by their laugh ter—as Harry Lauder and Bir Alex ander Peaoook; and stage favorites like Miss Ada Reeve and Miss Daisy Jerome, all differ more or less on this important topic. Even cham pions of women's rights like Miss Vida Goldstein and Mis3 Adela Pank hursfc are not quite at one about it. Harry Lauder, the famous Scotch comedian, who is at present visiting Australia, looked very serious as he said, " But women won't obey if they don't want to t No, not even if they have promised to in twenty marriage j services." Anyway," he added, " in ...
