BE CHEERFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
BE CHEERFUL. Be cheerful, no matter what re verses obstruct your pathway, . nor what plague follow you in your' trail to . annoy you. Ask yourself what is to be gained by looking or feeling sad when troubles throng around you, or now your conaiuon is to oe aueviatea by abandoning yourself to despond ency. If you are a young: man, Na ture \ designed you to 'be of good cheer;' and should you find, your road to, fortune, fame, or respectability, or any other boon to which your young heart aspires a little thorny, consider it all for the best, and that these im pediments ' are only ' thrown in your way to induce greater, efforts' and more patient enterprise on your part. If you are of the softer, fairer portion of humanity be cheerful; though we know full well that most affections are sweet to you when compared with disappointment and neglect, yet let hope banish despair and ill forebod ings. Be cheerful; ao riot brood over fond hopes unrealised, until a chain, link after link, is faste...

Philanthropy. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
Philanthropy. Town Councillor: Have you heard, Mr. Skinflint, that our generous towns man, -Mr. Muller, is defraying the cost of a. new promenade all round the town? We think a wealthy man like yourself might also do something for us. Skinflint: Well, what do you say to my giving you a park of oak-trees? Town Councillor: Oh, my noble hearted philanthropist! . Why, do you really mean to ? ? Skinflint: Yes, yes. I'll make the town a present of an oak forest. You have only to find the land, and I will supply you with as many acorns as you may want for seed.. During the latter part of the Middle Ages the saltcellar was the most con spicuous object on the dinner-table.

The Twenty-One Rule. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
The Twenty-One Rule. . Old Jacob Weatherly- is a man of extreme regularity, and on the princi ple that 'Early to bed,' etc., is the jest guiding rule for a household, he insists that everyone under his roof ind authority shall retire at 9.30. As may be readily understood, this rule sometimes proved irksome to the younger members of the family, es pecially Charles. Recently, however, Charles reached man's estate, and on his birthday Jacob gave him his blessing. 'I have no longer any authority over you,' he said; 'now that you are twenty-one you must act as pleases you best.' ~ On the following Saturday evening, therefore, Charles returned home at 11.15 p.m. and rapped at the door. 'Who's that?' said Jacob, from the window^ 'Charles,' replied his son. 'But why do you come home at this hour? Don't you know we lotik up at 9.30?' 'Yes,' remonstrated the youth; 'but I'm gone twenty-one now and can do as I please.' 'Quite so,' said the old man; 'but so can I.' And the window went down with...
PORT CYGNET SHOW. Magnificent Display of Fruit. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
POET CYGNET SHOW. Magnificent Display of Fruit. The Autumn Show of the Port Cygnet Agricultural and Pas toral Society was held in Lucas' Hall, Lovett, on Wednesday. The^ show of exhibits, particularly in° the fruit section,' was of a high standard of excellence. The dis play was comprehensive, em bracing a wonderful assortment of old and modern varieties, all of which were splendidly grown and well colored. Indeed, it was generally conceded that it was the finest lot of fruit ever exhibited at the society's show, and served as a good index to the prolific crop yielded from the orchards in Lovett, as in other parts of the Huon, this season. Not only;was it an exceptional display for this Society, but it is safe to assert that seldom, if ever, has it been excelled in any other part vof the State. It was no matter for wonder, then, that regret was expressed by many at the fact that greater effort is not made to use such, exhibitions, of which several are held in different parts of the ...

TUNNEL COLLAPSES. FOUR MEN INJURED. TWO STILL IMPRISONED.

The subsidence occurred about -three chains from the tunnel s mouth. Several men working, at the tunnel face were entombed.

The latest information is that four entombed men have been rescued uninjured, and four brought out with damaged limbs. There are still two in the debris. Kiech, Shaw, Nahoney and Bray are the injured men. The rescuers can hear Doyle and Duggan, the .two entombed men, tapping on the water pipe. They hope to reach them by morning. Beemer was found pinned down by timber, but great difficulty was experienced in ex tricating him.
INCREASED TAXATION [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
? ? INCREASED TAXATION A serious business for you Mr Tax payer ! Why should you provide for tho widows and orphans of thousands of other men, who are able to do it them selves? Who have just as favourable opportunities to-day as you have ? Why should you help to provide Old Age Pensions in the future for other fellow3 who to-day have every opportun ity to provide for thenwelvos by effocting an endowment Assuranco Policy in the National Mutual Life Association of Australasia to mature at 60 or 65. It is a man's duty, and his sacred privilege to make an immediate and certain provision for his wife and children by effecting a policy of Assurance on his life in the National Mutual. Rely upon it Mr Taxpayer, your taxe3 would be much heavier to-day if it were not for tho splendid educational work done by the National Mutual -and its Agents everywhere. The amount paid' out last year to members on their representatives, was not loss than £450,000. Just think what a lot of in creased taxes t...
AVIATION. Paulhan Tells His Sensations. My Machine It Has a Soul. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
AYIA1ION. o Paiiihan TeSls His Sen sations. My Machine It Has a Sou!. High flying is the most dangerous, and that's the reason Paulhan loves it. ' To fly a mile in the air is not diffi cult,' is the way he would liko to have disposed of liis feats in aviation when talking with a New York 'Tribuno' reporter at tho Knickerbocker a few wceKs ago. j A strange ?' combination of , girl-like modesty and ignorance of the sensation of fear is Louis Paulhan, artist in more than tho aerial sense. He is an artist in looks, temperament and other respects. When he smokes a cigarette the atmo sphere that exudes from him i3 artistic. He is French; the way he bov/3 and stniles tells one that. He is small, but so is the pugnacious sparrow. He wears one of those fuzzy hats, saucily turned up at the back. His shoulders- are stooped — perhaps from hunching over his knees in his aeroplane. He is a most engaging fellow. With a lew sticks and a fragment of cloth he climbed 4165 feet into the air1 — a world...
SENSE OF SMELL IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
SENSE OF SMELL IN HORSES. A horse will leave musty hay un touched in his bin even when hungry. He will not drink of water objection able to his questioning sniff, or from a bucket which some odor makes ? offensive, however thirsty. His intelli gent nostril will widen, quiver, and query over the daintiest bit offered by the fairest of hands, with coaxings that would make a mortal shut his eyes and swallow a mouthful at a gulp. A mare is never satisfied by either sight or whinny that her colt is really her own until she has a certified nasal proof of the fact. A blind horse, now living, will not allow the approach of any stranger witohut showing signs of anger, not safely to be disregarded. The distinc tion is evidently made by his sense of ' smell, and at a considerable distance. Blind horses, as a rule, will gallop wildly about a pasture without striking the surrounding fence. The sense of smell informs them of its proximity. Others will, when loosened from the stable, go direct to ...
NITROGEN OR AMMONIA. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
NITROGEN OR AMMONIA. The indiscriminate use of these two terms to express the most valuable constituent in fertilisers leads to con- s fusion. In reports of experiments, the agri cultural experts nearly always give the amount of -.this constituent as so much nitrogen. As a matter of fact, sulphate of am- . monia is about the only material which actually contains ammonia. Guanas, fish manure, dried blood do not con tain actual ammonia, but nitrogenous organic substances, which, by the pro cess of decomposition, may be con verted into ammonia. It would really be simpler if we al ways adopted in this country, as is V. done in Europe and America, the term nitrogen, which is the real plant food. We should like to see manure makers gradually give up the term 'ammonia,' and substitute the more correct term 'nitrogen.' To convert ammonia to the equiva lent of nitrogen, multiply the percent age of ammonia by 0.824. To convert nitrogen to the equiva lent of ammonia, multiply the percent age o...
WOMAN'S WORLD. TO PARENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
woman's world. TO PARENTS. Be ever gentle with the children; watch over them constantly; reprove them earnestly, but not in anger. 'Yes, they are good boys,' I once heard a kind father say; 'I talk to them very much, but do not like to beat my children — the world will beat them.' t Yes; there is not one child in the circle round the table, healthful and happy as they look now, on whose head, if long enough spared, the storm will not beat. Adversity may wither them, sickness may fade, a cold world may frown on them, but amidst all, let memory carry them back to the home where the law of kindness reigned, where the mother's reproving, eye was moistened with a tear, and tae father frowned 'more in sorrow than in anger.'
THE ORCHARD. GREEN MANURING FOR THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
THE ORCHARD. GREEN MANURING FOR THE ORCHARD. ' . By E. E. Pescott, Principal of the -School of Horticulture, Burnley, in the /.Victorian 'Journal of Agriculture.' The system of green manuring, or, as it is called, in America, the system of growing cover crops, because the crops cover the ground at a time when it is otherwise bare of foreign-growths, Is one that should commend itself to every orcnaraist, wno desires to per petuate, or to continue as long as pos sible, the fruiting abilities of his trees. To do this, the grower must decide that his soil shall never become ex hausted, or 'tree sick.' When a tree has been growing, and, of course, in the one place, for a . number of years, it can easily be understood that it has removed from the soil a very large amount of the constituents necessary for its nutriment and sustenance. Thus the 'soil becomes somewhat exhausted, and' perhaps 'depleted of the particular food that the tree requires; and the trees has then continually to strugg...
JAPANESE ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
JAPANESE ENGLISH. It was not so very long ago that a Japanese minister, who shall be name less, made a visit of ceremony upon Lady Lansdowne. He was a charming fellow, and conversed on many sub jects of interest with his hostess. In bidding her adieu, bending low over her hand, he murmured: 'Forgive it me, madam, if I have cockroached on your time to-day?' Lady Lansdowne laughingly told her husband the story, adding: 'He is such a nice little man, you know ! I think it would be right to tell him of his mis take. I shall explain to. him that en croached, not cockroached, is the cor rect expression in English.' The lit tle minister and Lady Lansdowne soon met again. It was at the Foreign Office, -and Lady Lansdowne drew her new friend apart. 'I want to make a little explana tion,' she said. 'You talk English all but ' perfectly. Indeed, I have only heard you make one mistake. Now, instead of saying to me, 'I am sorry to have cockroached,' you should say, 'I am sorry to have encroached...
WITTICISMS OF A JOURNALIST. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
WITTICISMS OF A JOURNALIST. He whp is drunk in a first-class car-J riage has had a fit; he who has a fit in a third-class is drunk. It is not our bitter enemies who do us the most harm; it is our bitter friends. a man never takes so mucn care of himself as he does when he has a woman to take care of him. Man is the Lord of Creation; wo man, the Lady of ' Creation. Life is like walking through Para dise with peas in your shoes. Most women go to church to at tract men — and to distract each other. ' It has been a Piccadilly proverb from time immemorial that the youngest sons should live on the State, the el dest on the estate. So many actresses are becoming peeresses that the aristocracy of this country should soon be known as the actressocracy. This is the age of the well-fed ill bred. We say nothing but good of . the dead, for we have exhausted our stock of evil of them when they were liv ing. It is a relief no longer_to have to strain our ill-nature. All who have made a noise in th...

'Ay, -weel enough,' replied _ her guest, a venerable Scot; 'but I dinna see the guid of yon bottle in the bed.' 'Why, wasn't tne water notr uie hostess 'asked with surprise. 'Verra hot.' rejoined Mackintosh; 'but ye forgot to put anything in it!'
What He Thought. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
What He Thought. If any man ever admired his wife, that man was Howler. And when the Fitzboodles asked Mrs. Howler to get up and sing, 'There is a garden in my face,' the husband glowed all over with deiight and pride. No matter that she had a face like an hippopotamus, and a voice like an ele phant, he sat beaming as she sang, and could not refrain from bending over to his neighbor and whispering: 'Don't you think that my wife's got a fine voice?' !'What?' said his neighbor, who was a little deaf. 'Don't you tliisk my wife has got a fine voice?' repeated Howler. 'What?' 'Don't you think my wife s got a fine voice?' roared Howler. 'Sorry!' returned the neighbor, shaking his head. 'Can't hear a word you sly. That awful woman over there is making such a frightful row, singing.'

FOR THE FARMER. SHALL THE FARMER WORK? [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 7 May 1910
FOR THE FARMER. SHALL THE FARMER WORK?-r Certainly— with brain and hands; Wiio succeeds witnoiit work? The.' question is — How much physical' labor snould he perform? We all know that mental iabor is of first import' . - anco, that it is the hard-thinking and stuuiOus brain, applied directly to one's-. .. uivn -business, which guides his hands along the line of success.
