BURN YOUR OWN SMOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 July 1914
BURN YOUR OWN SMOKE. When the late James Anthony Froude published his volume of scep tical reflections, entitled "The Nem esis of Faith," Thomas Carlyle's gruff comment on the hook was that Froude "should burn his own smoke and not trouble other people's nostrils with it." This criticism may have wounded Froude, but it certainly corrected him, for he soon lost his tendency to turn his heart inside out for other peo ple's inspection, and though he was always a doubter, his denials were few, and he did not offer his doubts to the public as a wholesome spiritual food. Most of us make more or less smoke; we do not burn with a clear bright flame. When a preacher tolls liis congregations his doubts r.r&lt;> plexities and guesses, he is throwing off smoke. When a man parades his trials and difficulties and displays ir ritability that everything is not going to his mind, he is blowing off smoke. We do not say a human life cr\n be free from ttis waste product :\ny p'.ore than a fi...
THE BEST THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 July 1914
THE BEST THINGS. "I like to have company," said a little girl, "for then we haye our pret ty dishes." Again a little boy ex claimed: "I wish we could play in the parlor just a little while, but mo ther says it is no place for boys." 1 know clumsy little fingers will dis arrange and break even our most cherished things, but better so than to make them stay in the kitchen to Crown at them an'd keep saying, "You mustn't touch!" "Come out of that room, you dirty boy!" and to have the table set with all the cracked dish es the house affords. Thfre are cheap stores in every large town and very pretty cups and saucers for sale, so Ut the children see pretty things, even if cheap, on the table and not scold if they are broken by the handling of th(?se unskilled fingers. Don't shut up the parlor, especially if it is the most sunny room in the house and sit in a room where there is 110 sun light. These cheerful beams wipe out the microbes and keep us well and in good spirits. Don'i have the p...
A GENTLE HORSE BREAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 July 1914
A GENTLE HORSE BREAKER. Next to Alexander the Great, who In his youth subdued Bucephalus, per haps the most famous o£ all horse breakers was John Rarey, the. Ohio Ian, who died at the age of 38, after having amassed a fortune by his skill. With the awakening of his mental energies, the boy realised that there was something wrong in the preval ent method of breaking horses. His childish soul recoiled at the cuffs and blows with which drivers were wont to subdue their animals. Throughout his schooldays the subject of his com positions was "Man's Best Friend-the Noble Horse." His most ambitious effort was a rhyme, in which he sang the gospel of "kindness, patience and firmness' in dealing with the brute creation. .The turning point in his boyhood came on his twelfth birthday. His father, now an extensive dealer in horses, presented to him an unbroken pony, which the lad proceeded to train aiuer his own ideas. Little attention was paid to his manoeuvres with the pony until neighbors beg...
PRICE OF MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 July 1914
PRI0S OF MEAT. A serious afpect of the scarcity of meat question is the stoppage of rx port. This time lust year W. Angliss and On., of Fuotscray, was distributing in wages approximately £1500 pur week to men engaged in slaughtering for cxpoit. This year thn expoit trade is practically at a standstill, and th" fiim'b' refrigerating plant is idle. Simi lar inactivity prevails at othor fretting ';nd e>xpo:b i6tablitbm::nls, and thn consequence is that a considerable number of slaughterman are idle. A lending exporter Bays that though tbe trade feared the prospective operations of (he Beef Trust, the existing slump was not due to the trusb or its in fluence. It arose solely from lack of proluclioa and the high prices ruling for such stock as is avaiUble. Sheep and cattle raisers, he said, were resting content with high prices for 6m ill supplies-higher prices than would-be procurable if there &lt;vere a surplus available for export. Local consumers therefore hid to pay more ...
GREAT FAMINES. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 July 1914
GREAT FAMINES. Since history began there have been 350 ruighty famines, each of which killed thousands, and most of which carried off people by millions. The Scriptures speak of famines in the time oK Abraham, and the story of the seven years' famine which pre vailed when Joseph was secretary of Pharaoh's treasury is a matter of Bib lical history. Rome bad its famines hundreds of years before Christ, and about 300 years after Christ wheat was worth 100 pieces of silver a bushel in An tioch, and about 100 years later par ents were eating their children in Italy to keep, themselves from starv ing. Great Britain has had famines back to the earliest of her records, and about the time that the Normans came over it is said there was such a famine over the Northern country that many of the inhabitants sold themselves for slaves, and that the flesh of horses, dogs, cats and rats had fixed prices in the market, and some, even ate human flesh. Twenty thousand people starved in London during t...
RURAL INTERESTS. SUCCESS OF IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 July 1914
RURAL INTERESTS. SUCCESS OF IRRIGATION. Among the most notable successes in irrigation farming in tho Rochester district is the holding of Messrs Jacobs and Kennedy, of Nanneella, who settled there a little over three years ago. At an curly period they were confronted with difiieultief. Their first crop of lucerne was devoured by rabbits, and they had to net their paddoclrs. Then they lost a dozen cows and other stock, but now they havo surmounted most of tlmr troubles Thny hold 150 acres of good, loamy laud, which had, however, beeiv much exhausted by continued wheat cropping, hub they luve restored it by the application of green and stable manure. AH the land is uudor culti vation except four acres, which is being broken up for an orangery. Several acres are under d iff-* rent fruits. Mr Jacob's maxim is, "Keep the best of everything," with the result that the offspiing of their stock is in much demand. He is milking 35 cows, which each yield cream to the value of an average of £1...

Soma revelations have been made in New South WhIcb as to what farmers may expect if a labor majority is obtained in the Federal Parliament as a result of the double dissolution and tlio forthcoming election*. In three years tho Farmers' and Settlers' Association has had served on it four distinct claims on behalf of the rural workers.

Mr Camp bell, secretary to the association, states : -" Some of the fresh claims are monu ments of A. W.U. aggression.

"TROUBLE." [Newspaper Article] — Tungamah and Lake Rowan Express and St. James Gazette — 2 July 1914
"TROUBLE.' Did you meet that trouble, that came your way With a smiling heart, and cheerful; Or hide your face from the light o' day, With a Craven Soul, and fearful? Oh! trouble's an ounce, or trouble's a ton, Yes, trouble is just what you make it. And it isn't the fact that you're hurt that counts, But only, "How did you take it?" You are beaten to earth, well', well! what's that? Come up with a smiling face; It's nothing against you to fall down flat, But to lie there, that's a disgrace. The harder you're thrown, the higher you bounce, Be proud of your blackened eye, For it isn't the fact that you're licked that counts, But VHow did you fight, and why?" And though you be done to the death, what then? If you've battled the best you could, If you've played your part in the world o' men, The Critic will call it "Good!" Death comes with a crawl, or he comes with a pounce, And, whether he be slow or spry, It's never the fact that you're dead that counts, But only "How did you die?"
