WHEN WALKING IS HARD WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 15 August 1914

WHEN WALKING IS HARD WORK. People often express surprise that soldiers 011 the march cover only tea or twelve miles of ground per day. Even then a good many men fall out through fatigue, some faint, and the whole are completely done up at the end of the day. But the soldier is, nevertheless, a first-rate walker. It is all a matter of foot-tons ot' energy expended. Take an ordinary laborer, and his day's work will be equal to 300 tons lifted one loot high. An eleven-stone man, walking seventeen miles on,the level, does the same amount of muscle work. But mark, if he carries an overcoat weighing Gib., he does 311 foot-tons. Now, the soldier is a regular pack horse, and the kit that he carries av erages about BOlb. in weight. So that he does exactly as much work In a twelve-mile march as an ordinary man in his seventeen-mile' walk. Besides, the soldier has to "break camp" before starting, and at the finish of the march he has to pitch camp, draw, water, collect fuel, clean rifles, etc....

WIT OF THE ANCIENT GREEKS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 15 August 1914

WIT OF TH^ ANCIENT GREEKS. Cleomenes, when asked what was tlio duly of a king, replied, "To do good to your friends, but harm to your enemies." Hearing this, the philoso pher Aristo asked "Would it not bo still better to make your enemies friends, and so to do good to them also?" Philip of Macedon, being advised by his friends to banish one of his slan derers, replied, "If I do he will go about and abuse me where there are more to listen to him." Dionysus the Tyrant, to put a slight upon Plato, gave him the lowest seat at his table. "1 daresay," he said, "when Plato goes back to Athens he will have plen ty to say against us." "Sir," said Plato, "I hope I may never be so at a loss for subjects of conversation as to have to talk about you!" Aristippus was once asked why lie borrowed money of his friends. "is'o for my own benefit," he replied, "but to teach them tire proper use of wealth." Anaximander was once laughed at by some little boys for his singing. When told of it he said, "We...

WOMAN'S WORLD. WEAR BECOMING COLORS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 15 August 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. WEAR BECOMING COLORS. It Is not every woman who under stands the art and necessity of har monising colors. She is apt to be swayed too much by the decrees ol fashion when selecting shades for a new hat or dress, and the result, more often than not, is great contrasts, which acccntuate instead of hide de fects of the face and figure. The woman who desires to look her best must select only those colors which will bo helpful to her. Women differ so much in form and coloring that each must be a law unto her self. There is the fair and florid woman, the thin and sallow woman. Another type is neither stout nor thin, per haps, but colorless and faded, a strik ing contrast to the highly-colorcd dark woman, whose pink cheeks have changed to a dull red. Taking the fair and florid, a type generally inclined toward obesity, she may be said to be fairly safe if she will adopt dark colors or shades below the bust-line, and select those near her face wilji a view to becomingness.

An Unexpected Order. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 15 August 1914

An Unexpected Order. The most interesting experience I ever had during a long time on the road occurred some years ago in Scot land, says a traveller. One day during the Highland Show, where we were exhibiting engines, a very unkempt-looUing individual hung around the stand for some time, and thinking lie appeared very interested in a large traction engine, and might possibly be a driver, I approached him for a chat. After a time, however, 1 found ho was a man who had an idea j he would like to have it for his own, but before deciding he said he would first have to ask his mother. ■ A photographer is something like a husband—the only thing 011 earth lie asks o£ a woman is that she keep perfectly still and look pleasant.

GOLD AND GLITTER. A Story of How a Young Fool was Saved from His Folly. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 15 August 1914

GOLD AND GLITTER. A Story of How a Young Fool was Saved from Hts Folly. My introduction took placo to lier when she was a red-faced, unprepos sessing infant of a few weeks, and I was a sufficiently grown man to ima gine. that the few hairs that adorned my upper lip constituted a moustache, and that my age and sex entitled me to the admission of a supreme con tempt for babies. I remember she screamed for the whole of the five minutes during which she was submited to my inspection, and rendered me more uncomfortable than any member of her sex had ever done before. But it was the last time—for from that day onwards we were the best of friends—and I only mention the occasion of our first meeting in order to prove that I assuredly had a good claim to thoroughly knowing and un derstanding her, considering that for twenty years of her life I saw her practically every day. I was her godfather—a high honor, I believe—but it carried its responsi bilities, though I never seemed to feel their w...

FOR THE FARMER. STOCK-BREEDING IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 15 August 1914

j FOR THE FARMER. j STOCK-BREEDING IN VICTORIA. Dr. S. S. Cameron, Director of Agri culture in Victoria, in an interesting chat the other day with our represen tative made some remarks on stock breeding, especially on small farms, that may be read with both pleasure and profit. Dr. Cameron said:—"I was recently struck by the high jump in values realised for beef breeds of cattle at the Sydney Royal Agricul tural Show sales. For a year or two back the prices obtained at these sales for Hereford, shorthorn, and other beef-breed cattle have been compara lively low, thus indicating that the Queensland and other buck - country buj ers have not been operating as they used to do. It lias always seemed strange to me that as Queensland is engaged in the business of beef export it docs not emulate its great rival the Argentine, whose stock-breeders ' an nually import, at very high cost, some of the best pedigree stock that ^ can be produced in Great Britain. For years past the Ar gentine has ...
