FOR MOTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 24 June 1914
FOR MOTHERS. To bring a child up in the way he should go, travel that way yourself. Stories first heard at the mother's knee, are never wholly forgotten, a little spring tllat never dries up in our journey through scorching years. The sooner you get a child to be a law unto himself, the sooner you will make a mall of him. Children need models more than criticism. We can never check what is evil in tlhe'young unless we cherish what is good in them. Line upon line, precept upon pre cept, we must have in a home, But we must also have serenity, peace, and the absence of petty fault-finding, if the home is tobe a nursery fit for heaven's growing plants. There are no men or women, how ever poor they may be, but have it in their power, to leave behind them the grandest thing on earth-charac ter; and their children might rise up alter them and thank God that their mother was a pious woman, or their father a pious man. Train your girls to be punctual, trustworthy, and honest, so that if they...

HUNTING. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 24 June 1914
HUNTINr. The meet of the Melbourne Hounds at Lyndhurst on Satur day was a great succas. The day was a perfect one for an outing. Sixty-nine riders, besides several others driving, took part. The tram was a little late, so a hurried start was made, and be fore many minutes had passed the huntsmen were off in search of game. Off across Mr Green's they .wVent, then up the Cran bourne road for about a mile, until they came to Mr. McLeod's Tie hounds when thrown into cover did not keep the followers long waiting in anticipation, for almost at once they announced that they had found. Reynard was not one of the straight-going brigade, being content to dodge from one cover to another,.ar.nd await a favourable opportunity tc go to esrth. The field, however, was soon scattered in all diree tions, owing to so much doubling, consequently the quarry was given an unusually uncomfortable time. A splendid sight was wit ness.d as over fifty well-mounted huntsmen jumped the Hallam's road double into ...

ADVANTAGES OF THE SILO. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 24 June 1914
ADVANTAGES OF THE SILO. Silage keeps. young stock thrifty and growing all winter. It enables cows to produce milk and butter more economically. Silage is more conveniently handled than dry fodder. The lsilo prevents waste of maize, which contain about one-third the food value of their entire 'bcrop. There are no aggravating maize stalks in the manure when silage is fed. The silo will mjake palatable food of stuff that would not otherwise be eaten. It enables a larger number of ani-. mals to be maintained on a given number of acres. It enables the farmer to preserve food which matures at a rainy time of the year, when drying. would be next to impossible. It is the most economlcal method of supplying food for the stock dur ing the hot dry periods in summer when the pasture is short.
WHY WOMEN SHOULDN'T FLY. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 24 June 1914
WHY WOMEN SHOULDN'T FLY. '-4-- I (By B. C. BUCKS, THE UPSIDE DOWN AVIA1,OR.) Flying is a ma~n' ?,isin'sn. and a woman hain't the right tyve of mind to ccrg.," in it suceav.fully. That is the cli! rLqason why I d'nut approve of girls becmJlnr;g ;tsiators. On more than one oce.:,i.,n when I have ben up in the air with a lady passenger, the machine has side-lslip pedl or struck an air-pocket, and though I won't say we :have been within an inch of death, we have certainly been in great danger. These things happen to the best airman. and cannot he avoided. lHaving righted the machine and descended to earth, the pilot steps out with nerves all tingling, and he offers a. silent prayer for his lucky escape. The lady passenger Jumps out, her face wreathed in smiles, and gushingly remarks upon the aw full., topping trip she has made. and what a funny little turn the machine took half a minute ago. She has never realisel that her rery life hung upon a thread, and only the pilot's coolness and ...
SUPERSTITIONS ABOUT WEDDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 24 June 1914
SUPERSTITIONS ABOUT WEDDINGS. T'he wedding ring is always placed oi the third linger of the left hand, because this finger is supposed to be in close sympathy with the heart. In leaving the church, the bride will do well to place her right, foot fore most if she wishes to be happy, heal thy, etc., in the future, and she should always be first to call her husband by name. Never, if you value your happiness, enter the church before the ceremony at one door and leave after the cere mony by another door. It is said to be unlucky to tie shoes to any part or the carriage in which the bride and bridegroom go away, but it is lucky to throw an old shoe after the bride as she enters the car. riage. Throwing rice or wheat over the bride is lucky, as is also honfetti, which is much more used now. After the wedamg breakfast and re ception, the bride should be careful to throw away and lose all the pins, if there are any about her. The brides maids should not keep the pins them selves, or they wi...
The Conductor Was Worried. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 24 June 1914
The Conductor Was Worried. The conductor was inclined to seek for sympathy. "Do you see that woman on the lef - handI shle of the car, up near the front?" hIe asked the thin man at the rear. "Yes, I see her." "The one with the dizzy hat?" "Yes." "WllI, I think she's tryin' to cheat 1ie oot of a f'are. When I went in to 'ollect she never looked arounll, an' I :inl't quite sure that she dhin't pay rile before--although I'm almost post' tire about it . She looks to me like a woman who'd be gladll to stir up a fuss. I can pick 'em out as far as I c:ah see 'em. You never spot a woman with a face Ilke that who isn't ready to blulff her way manywhere. I wish to goodness I knew whether she'd paid her fare or not." "I wouldn't worry about It any more," said the thin man. " I paid the lady's fare some time ago--he'. my wife."

Fair-Haired Flirts. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 24 June 1914
Fair-Haired Flirts. "*'inety of every' hundred respond ents in dir orce cases are blondes," said a celebrated American lawyer. Mr. Herman L. Roth, recently. "Blondes are vain. Blondes are fic kle. Blondes love no one well but themselves. Blondes ilnvite flirtation and challenge insult. Blondes bear the trade-mark of the coquette. "'They say, in effect, 'Catch me! I am easily caught.' A blonde at tracts instant attention because she hears the trade-mark of the flirt. Her golden hair is a challenge. She is the trouble-miaker of the world." Mir. George Robinson, another di torce specialist, adds his quota to the indictment of the bright-haired -.?olnan. "In the first analysis of a man's emotions,"' he writes. "even though the man be a fool, he wants a woman who is true, and the brnl nette is nothing if not faithful. But it takes a man to win a bru nette. He must put up a fight for ner, for she has a mind and will of her own, and n a brain superior to that of the blonde. A judge of the ...
