PROCRASTINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 12 June 1914

PROCRASTINATION. You are merely storing sorrow for the future, sages say, if you put off till to-morrow things which should be done to-day. When there is a job unpleasant that it's up to me to do, I attack It in the present, give a whoop and push it through; then my mind is free trom troubles, and I sit nefore the fire pop ping corn or blowing bubbles, or a whanging at my lyre. If I said: "There is no hurry-that old job will do next week," there would be a con stant worry making my old brain-pan creak. For a man knows nd enjoy gient resting at the close of day, if he knows tlhat some employment is neg leooted in that way. There is nothing more consoling at the setting of the sun, when the evening bells are toll ing, than the sense of duty done. And that solace cometh never to the plan of backbone weak who postpones all sane .endeavor till the middle of next week. Let us then be up and doing, with a heart for any fate, as the poeb said, when shooing agents from his garden gate. Let u...

"HEN-TALK." [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 12 June 1914

"HEN-TAlK." The "language" of monkeys has been the subject of careful study' by natur alists; if the "language" of hens has hitherto been neglec-ud it is probaubly because no one lenew they had a lan guage at.all. It has apparently been reserved for Messrs. Edward U(irpen tier and George Merrill to make L the inomientous discovery that hen talk, a discovery wlich ithey haveo comnpunilct ed, to an astonished world &hrough the pages of tih "Huumanitarimn." It appears tlhat 'the hen vo4bnlary, though not a very extensive oje, com prises twenty-three cries or not&.of dis tinct sound and lmeaning. ."These twonty-three not·s and cries nuct de note a diinsiderable degree of intelli gence," the writers remark.

TANNING SHEEPSKINS WITH WOOL ON [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 12 June 1914

TANNING SHEEPSKINS WITH WOOL ON e The following is a good recipe for tanning skies with the hair, fur, or wool on: While the skin is fresh, powder the flesh side with a mixture of salt two parte, alum and saltpetre each one part, and roll tightly, letting it lie until the mixture is thoroughly dissolved. This mixture should be pulverised before being applied. Next, stretch the hide on a board, and scrape off all tflesh and membrane that may adhere to it. Dry in the sun and cover with neatsfoot oil, after which itshould be laid away for a few days. The, scrape as clean as pos sible with a piece of wood, and apply Spanish whiting which has been heated in an oven until it is hot, rubbing it in with a !!annel cloth. The skin is now ready for use, and if at alletiff may bhe rublied and worked eoft with but little trouble. Treatment of sand crack varies, but if the sensitive part of the foot is touched poultices should be used and the growth of new horn encouraged. • Tarred cord and other...

TIT-BITS FROM BOOKS. "Every man whlo is a genius knows it. But some know it who are not geniuses." "It is easy to hat a man for his faults than to love him for his virtues. But it is easier to hate him for his virtues and love hlum for his faults." "The spice of love is the gentle row I It is only the bread-pudding woman, flavorless and unappetising, who says, 'Yes, dear,' to overything." "Thiere are some questions that a wo man who considers her own happiness will leave unasked, however great her curiosity." "Have you ever noticed that the things you are most severe on at one period of your existence you como to do a another? It's fatal to say you won't do anything; if it's only that you will never marry a man with a beard, or a squint, you're bound even tually to do it. While if you sit in righteous judgment on the man who spends his substance on the Turf, or the woman who runs awa;y with her neigh bour's husband, you'll do both as sure as you're a living soul."-_C'Nevertlie les,"...

MELBOURPNE LETTER (Froh Our Special Correspondent.) If there be any foundation for re oent revelations anent the sy.tem un der which certificates are issued to as piring motorists, it is hardly a matter eor wonder that accidents are many, and that the man at the wheel is an athema to the average pedestrian. The way has been easy for applicants for certificates. A c~orresponuent tells how. He says:-'"There is a great outcry against the reckless driving of motor cars aiand the consequent killing and maiming of people.

WOBURN TUBERCOLOSIS EXPERIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 12 June 1914

WOBURN TUBERCOLOSIS EXPERIMENT. * The experiment' in the rearing of calves fr om tuberculous cows, carried out by tha Royal Agricultural Society at Woburn, was discussed finally at the recelnt council meeting. 'There ap pear to be a few who think the investi gatlon uas niot worth the money it cost, chiefly on the ground that the facts established had been already ac cepted. There will nlot be many of th:s way of thinlking. It was known in certain quarters that calves from tu berculous parents lad been reared free from the disease in Denmark and in other countries; but reading aceounts of distant expermunents does not aliays carry conviction, especially in view of the mcdernl tendency to magnify what has been attempted or achieved abroad. The British farmer likes to see for himiself, and-to have first hand informa tion on matters that closely affect his interest.

THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A BOY [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 12 June 1914

THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A BOY Wheni I come to think it over I can recall a good many things that happen to a boy to wound his pride and' to-re mind hun that no matter how manly hlie mlay feel is but a small boy after all, and must be treated as such. One of the earliest humiliations to which he is subjected is not being allowed to fish with a real hook. Sometimes a bent pin is substituted, the head of which is constantly slipping through the knot and losing itself in the water; or, if the real hook is used, father first; carefully files off the barb to pre vent the possib.lty of its getting into the boy's hand or leg and requiring it to be cut out. Now nobody ever saw a boy catch a fish with a bent pin or -a barbless hook, and when a boy is seen fishing with either it is a sure sign that he is regarded as still being mn the infant class. Another notice to a small boy that he is only a small boy is miaking him ride a horse with a grain bag for a saddle, this precaution being taken to pr...

There is generally also some stretching of other tissues in the neighborhood of the joint, with rupturp of small vessels and effusion of blood, giving rise to the characteristic dis ooloration of bruisi:ng on the skin over the joint.: Sprains are of most fro quceis- occurrence in the ankle, shoul der, wrist and knee. SThere is generally severe pain, often localisod to certain points and increass cdl on movemont; there may be inabil ity to bear thi weight of cthe limb; as a rule there will be swelling and dis coloranion from effusion of blood around tlit joinlt, and later inflammatory ef fusion into the joint, cavity may oc cur.
