WOMEN AND WORK [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915
WOMEN AND WORF All women who have not home du ties to keep them occupied ought tc have some outside interests. The women who are sweet-tempered and charming and kindly disposed to wards humanity are the busy women -thoseG kho work-for their living or for charity or are occupied with the best duties of all-motherhood. An energetic, enthusiastic, ambitious business Wroman with a calling, no matter how ,humble it is, has not the time for' the despicable pettiness that goes to make life a bibrden to all con cerned. The woman who works is inevitably -. woman who is broad in her views. Her opinions are not riveted to any one spot. Her point of view is mov. able. Her experience in the busind is mart gives her sympathy for other o men workers. She has learned to aLc cept every friend, new and old, at an honest valuation. She learns to enjoy the society of people who have made something out of life.
HINTS ON HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915
HINTS ON HABITS. Get out of the habit of.being poor. Poverty is no crime, but it is infernal ly bad taste! Besides, lots of people have been cut out of wills simply and solely for being poor. Being poor is an extremely hard habit to break yourself of, unless you begin very early in life. If you have been poor for fifty or sixty years, you are practically incurable. Marriages are made in Heaven. That's why all the brightest and best men are waiting. They don't want to throw themselves away on this side of Jordan. Acquire perfect manners. The use of manners is to enable you to do ex actly what you want without giving offence. The worst of all faults is to have none. Beauty is only skin deep. And the heart is very far from the skin. If, by any chance, you want to be really good, get out of the habit of being beautiful. Try to gain a reputation greater than you deserve, and then teach your self to deserve it. If you can do this, you won't need any further help from me. - Don't get into ...
THE MECHANICAL AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 20 November 1915
THE MECHANICAL AGE. Were we required to 1c'laracterise this age of ours by any simple epithet we should be temptcci to call it, not an Heroical, Devotional, Philosophical or Moral Age, but, above all others, the Mechanical Age. It i? the Age of Machinery, in every outward and-uni versal sense of that. word; the age which, with its whole individual might, forwai'ds, teaches, and practises the great art of:. adapting means to ends. Nothing is now done directly, or by hand; all is by rule and calculated con trivance. For the simplest operation, some helps and accompaniments, some cunning, abbreviating process is in readiness. Our old modes of execu tion are all discredited, and thrown aside. On every hand, the living arti san is driven from his workshop to make room for a speedier, inanimate one.
HOW CECIL RHODES DISCOVERED A DIAMOND FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 November 1915
HOW CECIL RHODES DISCOVERED A DIAMOND FIELD. A .German trader in skins and os trich feathers from the interior, with Pietermaritzburg as his frontier sta tion, - drove into Capetown one after ooon. He had been two months bring. ing in his waggons, each drawn by ten yoke of long-horned oxen, from the rrontler trading post named. .This trader, among other curious things, had a dozen or so very bril liant pebbles, Which he was showing ;i his friends. "Fine specimens of globular quartz," said a doctor, newly arrived, who had just enough of a smattering of geology to know nothing at all about it. "Would you mind, giving me one or two of those 'pebbles?" said a tall, dark-skinned, slender young man. "Or I will bur thni:;from-.you at whatever you may consider them worth. I have no such stones in my. collection at home." "My dear sir," the other replied, with the hdartiness of the dweller on the veldt, "you are very welcome to a couple. Pick out any two you may fancy." The dark young man se...

ESCAPE FROM A MILITARY PRISON. Ol.? of the most ingenious and dar !; escapes from prison that ever took lace haplie.u.d during the' American ivil NWar, when 109 Union officers es Lped by means of a tunnel from Lib y. Prison, Richmond.

This work was done ,at nlight with a knife and an old chisel, and the bricks re place'd: for: the next day, as the fire plac.e was in constant use. The cellar having been reached, the ne...
WILKINS' SISTER [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 November 1915
WtLKINS' 81STRIL X knew Wilkins when he was a bo) L went to school with him. We boys' wsed to despise him;; w often got up in the hight to hate him. You see, !t. was this way. The schoolmaster wanted to marry his sister--Wilkins'. sister, of course. That made all the difference. Wilkins was red-ha red and codfish eyed. He, never knew his lessons, and never tried to. He. whistled and sang in school, and rubbed ink on the other fellows' collars, and stuck pins in their legs. But.,he!;never got whacked with the ruler. :Not he.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 November 1915
VARIETIES. Things move along so. rapidly now adays that people who say, "It can't possibly be done," are continually be Ing interrupted by somebody doin' it. Among the Hottentots, if a widon marries; again, she is obliged to cu' off the joint of a finger for every hus band :.he marries after the first; this she presents to her new husband o: her wedding-day, beginning at one o :he little fingers first. It is good di.,cipline to do anythin: :egularly, whatever it may be.

TRUE COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 November 1915
TRUE COURAGE. "t Is no easy thing," remarked a Aental authority, "to_ distinguish b1 Lweeu true courage and qualities which may take its place, such -a stolidity, lack of imagination, and in sensibility. "I once listened to a ma who, as a traveller and explorer, had passed through many adventures, and whb boasted of the dangerous situations which lie had faced while his compan ions had run away. When I came to know hint better, 1 found that his cour age was chiefly a matter of insensibil ity and dulness of imagination. Had her realised his peril to the same ex tent as his companions he would with out doubt have taken to his heels with the rest. "Most of us have laughed at the ex cuse of the timid soldier who com plained that in battle his legs ran away with him of their own accord Absurd as the'excuse seemed, there Is a good deal of truth in it.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 November 1915
The haycutting is now all finished. Some are already stacking, while others are carting direct from the fields to the chaff mills. There seems to be the required number of men available, so far. Stacking operations have already started, and carting to the mills is in full swing. It has been so great that the mills are full of hay. Barrie's new chaff mill, at the Melton railway station, started work on Wednesday last; and Dixon Bros. started on Friday. Managers of the chaff mills complain of a shortage of trucks. On Thursday 14 trucks of chaff left the Melton railway sta tion. . The weather for the week has been very changeable. On Tues day last it was miserably cold, with the unusual sight of persons sitting by the fireside .to keep themselves warm--strange for end of November, when it is usually uncomfortably warm. On. Tuesday last there was a very heavy shower of hailstones at Too lern Vale. The ground was covered white with them. We had light showers on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesda...

-PUDDINGS WITHOUT EGGS. Pearl Barley-Pearl barley' is one of the cereals that is not much used, except for thickening soups, but if used with apples and baked it makes a most nourishing pudding.

A CHIP AT THE SLACKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 November 1915
A CHIP AT THE SLACKERS. Come, rally up, you Slackers, . Drag the cotton from your ears. Get the blinkers off your optics, Face the music, chuck your fears. How dare you play the shirker, And your Counti'y's call construe As only meant for t'other chap, Him solely, not for you? You trot the pave in daylight, With faces bold as brass, And you watch your own blood brothers To the field of honor pass. In their hundreds and their thous ands, Daring death beneath the flag, While you find your highest glory Just in rolling up a "fag." Have you neither "dad" nor "mater," Splendid sisters, true men prize, Don't their safety count a stiver, Are you cowards,d -- your eyes ? One chap; to me cracked 't'other day, "I'd like to be all in, But while my heart's so big and tough, My skin's too bloomin' thin." This rotter pops up everywhere, In every street and alley. You meet him on the wind-swept hill, He lurks in many a valley. Stacks of him' neither toil or spin. Own purses fat, land, bricks and s...

CULLING THE FLOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 November 1915
CULLING THE FLOCK. A breeder's notes:=-Once'" a year I go over my sheep, culling out the individuals that are not up to my standard. All ewes that have broken mouths are discarded. I examine also the ..udders and teats, and if any have spoiled in any way be cause of .accident these are let go also. 'I know, too,. what ewes are good producers and what ones are not. Aniy. man who spends time with his flock, from the time the' lambs begin to come until they are weaned, has a pretty good',notion of the good and the bad in that flock. The. only person., qualified to do the culling is the man who works with the sheep. Rather late in the season my lamb' crop is gone over just as carefully as the ewes. I 'aim to.keep out ;each year the best ewe lambs for the 'further improvement of my flock.: Thei cilled lambs are set apart, fed carefully and sold as' soon 'as finished. I, can't see that it pays to keep an inferitr lamb for its wool crop '
