The Worst of Education. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 11 June 1914

The Wor«t of Education. When the new and the old school meet there is likely to be a clash of opinions, and so Miller Brown found the other day when Farmer Jackson gent hi* young eon across to the mill .with a Gack of wheat which he wished (round into meal. Like the miller, the mill was of the eld, leisurely school, and only a tiny •tream of meal trickled out. The young man waxed impatient. "What a mill!" he said, with scorn. "Why, X could eat the meal quicker than this ramshackle old concern of yours can grind it!" "Ay," said Miller Brown; "but how long couldst keep it up, lad?" "Till I starved!" was the trenchant answer. And when Miller Brown had puzzled out th« inwardness of the remark,- he concluded that lads nowadays were "gettin' a power too aharp wi' their tongues."

NO MERIT IN HAVING A HARD TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 11 June 1914

NO MERIT IN HAVING A HARD TIMP. There is no merit in having a hard time in this life. There is no sin in merely having an easy time here. No man can confidently expect to be a gainer, in the next life, because he has suffered much in this life. Nor need any person lack hope for the life beyond, because he has found joy and had pleasure in the present lire year by year. A life rightly spent may give joy in the present, and may have promise of the life that is to come. If we would hope for the future, let us use well the present.

A Comrade-in-Arms. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 11 June 1914

A Comrad«-in-Arms. A. certain military camp ia the nortn •rest of Ireland was once the sceae of a rather funny incident A little boy who was taking a donkey to the mar ket had occasion to pass the camp, when the band struck up a lively air, and the ass, naturally of a nervous disposition, ;began to tug violently on the rope with which the boy was hold ing him. ' One of the.soldiers thought he saw an opportunity to cause a laugh at the boy's expense for the amusement et a crowd of onlookers; so he called out, as the boy passed: "Hey, youngster, why do you hold four brother so tightly?" The boy looked at the redcoat for a ■econd, and then, as if suddenly In spired, replied: "Short, I'm afraid he might want to 'list in row regiment!"

UNSKILFUL TEMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 11 June 1914

UNSKILFUL TEMPER. One 'would think that there could be 110 end to the resources of anger. Men use it in so squandering a way, that one is surprised that the stock does not run out. But even this wastefulness of the precious commo dity is not censurable as the want of skill and good taste with -which it is employed. It is not economised. It is not put to good purposes! It is squandered. It is not skilfully shot, as a maYksman shoots at a target. Indeed, men show clearly enough that they do not know the value of anger. A good article of anger is worth far more than the best gun-powder, and ought to foe used with an economy at least equal to that of the sportsman, who never burns powder needlessly. What should be thought of a sportsman who should go 011 firing his gun out of the window? Or what of one who should go about the yard, the garden, ex ploding his gun every hour into the air, hitting nothing? Yet so do men let off the precious force of temper— invaluable treasure of anger. Is...

The First Match-makers. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 11 June 1914

v The First Match-maker*. The teacher of the village school was giving her class an object-lesson, the subject being "Matches: How made? Who invented them?" etc. Suddenly she paused, on noticing a tousled-headed boy on the back form playing with something and not pay ing the slightest attention to the les son. "Hogget, you are not paying atten tion," she eald, severely. "Yus, Oi am, mum." "Tell me, then, who made the first match? If you don't answer correctly I shall severely cane you." Master Hogget stuck his fingers in to his tousled locks, obviously non plussed; then his face brightened, and be blurted out: "Adam and Eve, mum!"

CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 11 June 1914

CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS; The education o£ an infant should commence as soon as it is horn as good or bad habits are formed during childhood. If, for example, a baby ir fed every time it cries, it soon begins to understand that by crying it gets what it desires, but by gratifying its demands against our better judgment we are instilling into the unconscious infant a lesson in seliisliness and greed which may persist through its whole life. A habit scarcely less harmful is giving it* something to suck to "keep it quiet." Many parents leave the duty of in stilling good habits into their chil dren to the teachers in schools, for getting that by the time school life begins habits have been formed that may mar or make the child's career for life. Habits and character are bounjtl together; one cannot have a good character with bad habits. The habit of obedience is one of the first to be enforced. Very early in life a child will recognise right from wrong, but perhaps at first tlie wrong path...

CHAPTER XVI. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 11 June 1914

CHAPTER XVI. It was on the afternoon of the day that Shamus O'Doyle started for Ire land and Karl Kruger took boat from Southampton to his native land, also that Peter Bellairs came home rather later than usual and requested his wife to send Sheila with a message to the Duchess,, saying that Tie par ticularly wished to speak to her alone. For Bellairs had made up his mind, and that mind, once made up, was not likely to be disturbed again. The time had passed when he could scold Margaret for what she had done, and the unhappy man was de termined to get rid of her. He en ured her boudoir, sat down and said abruptly: "I have a few things to say to. you, Margaret." "Yes, Peter," she rep'ied, looking at him with frightened blue eyes. "Have you heard from your son lately?" "Yes, I had a letter, but you said I wasn't to mention his name to you, so I did not tell you anything about if He seems to be getting on well in his new employment, although the poor hoy does not care for office life."...

The brother and sister went into the house, where the amazed and de lighted squire and his wife gave their son a most hearty welcome. Indeed, Mrs. O'Doyle shed tears as she kiss ed her "beautiful boy,".as she called him. Shamus knew exactly how to act in the home of his ancestors. He gave his mother graphic accounts of his life in London, which charmed and delighted the sedate old lady, and after lunch he went around with his father to see the stables and examine the hunters. "I am forced to return to London to-morrow morning, sir, but when I do come 'back I will 'bring a couple of fresh horses with me." "Ye can't do better than buy them here, Shamus.

HINTS FOR WASH DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 11 June 1914

HINTS FOR WASH DAY. Try washing red table linen in water in which a little borax has been dissolved. j Add a few drops of ammonia to the blue water to whiten the clothes. Clothes turned right side out, care fully folded and sprinkled, are ha'.f ironed. Sprinkle salt 011 a wine stain and pour hot water through it until it is gone. Wet fruit stains with alcohol or pour boiling water through them. Kerosene in the • boiling water whitens clothes safely, especially such as are yellow from lying. Put in a tablespoonful to each gallon of suds. For very yellow or grimy things, make an emulsion of kerosene, clear lime water and turpentine in equal parts. Shake them together until Jreamy, then add a cupful to a boiler ful of clothes and boil for half an liuor. The same emulsion is good for very dirty things, such as jumpers, over alls, working shirts, children's trous ers. Use it In conjunction with strong suds, as hot as the hand can bear, and rub a little directly upon dirty grease spots. L...
