THE ESSAYIST. "Who Helps a man When He's Down?" [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 27 June 1891

THE ESSAYIST. m Who Helps a Man When lie's Down ?' fit Mark West. Strange how ths refrain of an old song will sing itself into mind and memory, and, like the words just quoted, if it ask a question, will beoome more and more insistent in its interrogation — in this case, ' Who helps a man when he's down ?' The only answer is, 'Na one.' Once let a man get down, and ha stays until Death comes along and drops j a stone upon him — men call it a monnment j — to keep it down forever. To one with any ; iiMJUllliecs UI leeuugy kucxa ao uy oigun uiu&o melancholy than a man redaced from af flenoe to poverty, and deserted by those who passed as his friends. ' Friend after friend depart; who hath lost a friend ?' is a query that needs no reply, but only those who, in their own expieriencc, have verified the pro verb, ' Prosperity makes friends, but adver eity tries them/' can know how exceedingly bitter — yea, even more bitter than the waters of Mirah, is the defection of fair-weather f...

Our Faults. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 27 June 1891

Oar Faults. It never occurs to that olass of people who nave allowed themselves to beoome fault finders that they are considered the most dis agreeable of companions, and justly. They have no right to the position they assume towards others, for they are very far from being perfect themselves : in trnth. thev think so much about other' imperfections that they have very little time to attend to their own. They would be grieved and hurt should their uiends retaliate by noticing every little eocen trioity of theirs, and, perhape, had their friends the eouragB to do bo, it might open their eyes to the anpleasantneBB of faultfind ing. It certainly would be a disagreeable duty, if duty it might be oalled, and few inline wouta care to do it, unless of thesame stamp as the fault-finders, in whioh case it would do very little good. No one likes to have his faults noticed, although there are some people from whom we oan bear reproof ftnd not feel we are hurt. They correct us in a kindly way a...

The Misery in Knit Shirts. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 27 June 1891

The misery in Knit Shirts. j BY E. B. CONE. The increased prevalence daring the last few years, among infants of the most carefal mothers, of distressing restlessness at night, and but Bhort nap3 daytime, sometimes of skin disease resembling eczema, or of serious disturbance, even in winter, like Cholera In fantum. haB brought several pbysic'ans to the front with a reason whioh ought to be gener ally published to pat a stop to the torture of the innocents. It is not sufficient to attribute all to the fact of the process of teething, which natu rally is not f erious. Though cf very nervous temperaments, my mother says that she never knew any especial tfiect of any of her children through thiB period, though we were dressed with the bare arms generally in that day. I have often felt that the nice low neckg fully counterbalanced the evil of the former, how ever1. And the extremities will be less cold, even if exposed, if the body be not overheated and sweated.

Subjects For Thought. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 4 July 1891

Subjects For Thought. The rale for the giver and receiver of a benefit is that the one should straightway forget that be haB given it and the other should never forget that be has received it. It is the cultivation of the moral side of cur natures that has given to our people aa a nrtion their great strength and grand stridesT | There ie small chance of truth at the goal where there is not a childlike humility at the Etarting poBt. PBOcKiSTiNATioN has been called the thief bf time. It is worse— it ie the murderer of man's best friend. Thb sublimity of wisdom is to do those things living which are to be desired when tiying.

j Sheep Suggestions. FlocVmasters have a 'different expression . from the vulgar one : ' Shoot the hat.' ThfT aay it prctvr snappishly, too : ' Shoot tnecog.' Every year the orop cf lambs should be freer from defeats thsn the flock haB ever - been. It is careless breeding thai does not proauce such a result. So far aa feeding goes, sheep husbandry stands upon the S3me footin^fae the dairy or beef production. Generous feeding means ; additional profits. More mutton means more wgoI. Breeding mutton sheep does not antagonise wool grow ing, though there ie an occasional fine wool grower who thinks it does. The haii of oattle that are fed well ie finer and generally handsomer than that of cattle 1 that are not fed well. So it is with every animal, and if we expect good wool we must feed for it. Like produces like. Find a pure bred ram that Baits you and you oan depend upon ultimately getting a flock of Bheep that will be substantially a reproduction of himself.
