SELF-CONFIDENCE. Chats With the Ambitious—And Others. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 January 1914
SELF-CONFIDENCE. Chats .With the Ambitious—And Others. By Orison Swctt Mardcn. "Peddle 'cm :is though tlioy were ap ples," said an editor to a trembling, sentimental girl who offered him her manuscript with tho air of a convict about to receive tho death sentence. "If one man does not ivant your apples another will. Don't he afraid of me or anybody else." Carry yourself with a self-confidcni air, as though you really believed in yourself, and you will not only inspire others with a belief in your ability, but you will also como to believe in your self. A keen observer can pick out a sue cessful man on tho street by the way he carries liimselt. If ho is a leader, every stop, every movement indicates it; thero is assurance in his hearing: ho walks as if he were master of him self, as if he believed in his ability to do things, to bring about results. Hi? self-confident air is an index of the success lie has attained. Men and women who succeed in their undertakings aro those who got th...
FOR THE FARMER, FARMYARD MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 January 1914
fOB THE FARMER, FARMYARD MANURE. r Farmyara# manure consists of the •olid and liquid excrements of ani mals and the litter with which these substances are mixed and absorbed. Its value for fertilising purposes de pends to a great, extent upon the way in which It is handled in the dung stead. In this respect (says a'writer In an English farm journal) its man agement too often leaves much to be desired, and, taking the country all through, enormous quantities of valu able plant nourishment are lost. The atmosphere is the chief agent which produces the decomposition of the ammonia in the manure and causes it to escape, and therefore the air must be shut out of the manure heap as much as possible. The freer 1 the air can penetrate the heap the ■ more rapid is the decomposition and • consequent loss of ammonia; indeed, | | it may be said that a rational treat- 1 | ment of the manure does not exist un less the heap is tightly compacted. "Keep it moist and tread it tight, And it will well ...

MOURNING GARMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 January 1914
MOURNING GARMENTS. Tho colors of garments -worn during tlio mourning period varies in differ ent countries. The more civilised na tions uso black tor mourning. In Italy tlio women don wliito garments to show their grief, and tho men clothes of a brown line. In China, white is used for mourning by both sexes. In Tur key, Syria, Cappadoeia, and Armenia, celestial blue is the tint chosen. In Egypt, yellowish brown, tho hue of the dead leaf, is deemed proper; and in Ethopia tho natives wear grey as the emblem of mourning. All these colors are symbols. AYhitf symbolises purity, an attribute of our dead; tho celestial blue, that place of rest where happy souls are at peace: tho yelloiv or dead leaf tells that death is the end of all human hope and that man falls as the autumn loaf: and grey whispers of tho earth to which all re turn.

SOME SALUTATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 January 1914
I = I SOME SALUTATIONS. The prostration and tho tahiain, sal utations that many Orientals use, aro only more pronounced forms of tho bow. So there is a connection between the embrace, so common in civilised countries, and tho greeting of a mem ber of the Koiari tribe of British Now Guinea, who, in saluting a missionary, placed 0110 arm abou this neck and stroked him under the chin. Among tho Masai ami the l>kerewo it is a mark of respect to greet an ac quaintance or a stranger by spitting at him. Almost as strange is the cus tom ascribed to the 'libetans of puttin* out the tongue by w.iy of salutation. 1 Rubbing noses is quite common; tho j Burmese and many tribes of Eskimos, ! Laplanders, and Malays do so. Stranger than any of these customs ■ is tho weeping salutation that has been observed among Central South Amer ican Indians. This form of greeting occurs too in the Andaman Islands, New Zealand, and Polynesia. A Por tiiRiiese explorer thus describes the ens tern as he saw it u...

SOME DONT'S FOR HOUSEWIVES AND OTHERS. Don't fail to give your correct ad dress when ordering goods. Don't forget to score children's new shoes oil the soles so that they will riot slip. New shoes are highly pol ished, and even big children slip and fall. Take a dull knife-point or scis sors and scratch the soles in criss-cros* fashion, not making the marks so deep as to injure the sole. Don't take pet dogs visiting and ex pect people to prepare especial food foi them, or shut their room doors con tinually sti as not to have their shoes or garments gnawed, or their beds n vaded, and their sofa cushions niadi "doggy." Don't fail to watch your baby wliei boarding or visiting where babies an not understood. Injudicious people di the most amazing things.

THE PRICE OF FEAR AND HATE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 January 1914
THE PRICE OF FEAR AND HATE. J Fear is the rock on which we split, and hate is the shoal on which many a bark is stranded. When we are fearful the judgment is as unrclinblo as tho compass of n ship whoso hold is full of iron ore. When we hate wo lmvo unshipped the rudder. And if we stop to meditate on what the gossips say of us, we have allowed a hawser to befoul the screw. Keep your mind on the great and splendid things yim would like to do, and, then, as till' days go gliding by, you will find yourself unconsciously seizing upon the opportunities that aro re quired for the fulfillment of your de sire, just as the coral insect takes from the running tide the elements that it If we continued wo get tho habit, that is. wo do tho thins without think ing, just as a matter ol course. Picture in your mind the able-, earn est useful person you would like to be, and the thought you hold is liouily transforming you into that particular individual.
