FAMILY LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 11 September 1914
I'AMILY LITE. There is hardly any family life in England. The men spend two-thirds of their time away from home, either at wort or in journeying to and from their placc of work or in the club or in the publichouse. During the remain ing nno-'third they mostly eitheT sleep or eat. Tho children aro at school or on errands or pViy about in tho streets. Nobodv^in England has particularly close r&ations with the relatives of t>is or hor family. This is tho great sccrct of the wonderful eielusivoncss of the home. There may be exceptional c.i3i»a where the husband works at homo ai artist or writer, or idles about as a rich man. Such homes, however, am Cor tho most part as unstable as those depicted W Strindberg in his plays. The theatre in England Las for its chief object to serve as a refuge from the dullness of evenings at home. Th>» English never think of tho members of their family as of friends, but always as of relatives only. Domestic habits ire viewed as a duty; all o...

TASTE. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 11 September 1914
TASTE. Mankind has agreed to regard Taste as the humblest of the senses. Kven people who enjoy their food are asham ed to say so; and we have been taught to ridicule the Spanish King who, at ter he had dined well, always felt that his snbjc-cts wen? Vappy. Yet of Mr Rultitude it is written that he srenvd to enjoy that "happy after-dinner con dWc-u ct perfect satisfaciiou with ono self and things in general which is tin natural outcome of a good cook, a goou tousnenco, and a good digestion"; and Lcvd Bcaconsfiold described a bu»v man as "realising all his dreams by the aid of claret that has the true flavour of the violet " As people undervalue the blessings of Tasto, so, naturallv, they | do not compassionate its lots. ** Yet i j think Dean Stanley would have been j a happier and a healthier man if he i had been encouraged to cat by the in ..cr.tive of Tai-te, and not merely by tbo ; feeling of faintness if tho meal was j forgotten.
