FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. WILLING. Her poor suitor did not discern That her gowns cost more than he'd earn. Said she, "How could you dress Q e?" He blushed and said, "Bless me! .'bat's something 1 think I could learn." A Methodist minister who former Jy harvested souls is now harvesting .wheal in the Gilgandra district. He, jao doubt, considers the work harder, but the crop seems surer. Most children have a pet of some ^description, and when a suburban hen some months back hatched out a duckling amongst her brood of chicks, the owner's two daughters immediate Jy adopted the web-footed new arrival -as a pet. Ducky, as he was named, .grew up and waxed fat in the inter vening months, and, being the sole jmember of his tribe in the fowlyard, was well fed and became very tame to Ills adopted parents.

WHERE FASHIONS NEVER CHANGE. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

WHERE FASH10N8 NEVER CHANGE. There are hundreds of thousands of women in Europe to-day who have never seen a fashion book. There are young girls to whom Easter has never meant new hats or spring styles, hut Just the time to leave off two winter petticoats and tho heavy woollen stockings. There are rosy-cheeked maids who make their dresses after the models their great-grandmothers wore. And there is a great charm in the simpli city of the gaily-colored costume, as one sees It on a happy young girl singing at sunrise in the fields or bringing home the baskets of fish at sunset. In Brittany the wooden shoes or eabots, bo long considered a distin guishing feature of Holland, are uni versally worn-perhaps more so than in Holland. For there is a growing tendency to discard the old custom. But in Brittany the people are ,super stitious to an intense degree and seem to regard it as a religious duty that they shall still wear the costumes of "their ancestors and continue the trades and daily...

TYPEWRITING MUSICAL SCORES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

i , TYPEWRITING MUSICAL SCORES. ' The typewriting of musical scores is now made possible by a machine that has appeared on the French mar ket. The same machine may be used for ordinary typewriting in several languages, the letters and numerals, and the musical characters or signs being carried on small drums. The drum for writing music contains eighty-four signs which, singly or in combination, produce all the charac ters necessary to write a complete score within a range of six and a half octaves. The treble or violin clef, for instance, is written by four operations, the bass clef in three, etc., even the staff itself being written on the machine. The characters are not written side by side as usual, but in a vertical line. The musical characters are all marked on the keys of the machine along with the letters and othei signs of the written language, in a dif ferent color. This arrangement is made possible by a simple'mechani cal device connected with the shaft of the roll holding...

The Why and the Wherefore ROMANTIC ORIGINS OF FAMILIAR WORDS AND DEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

The Why and the Wherefore ROMANTIC ORIGINS OF FAMILIAR WORDS AND DEEDS. If you tell the average man of edu cation that many of the prosaic acta he performs daily, many of the cus toms he observes, and even the clothes he wears, are so many roman tic survivals of the age of chivalry or of still more remote ages, he will probably smile at you with amused in credulity; and yet, unconscious as he may he, he is in a hundred ways fol lowing in the' footsteps of his long gone predecessors. When, for example, he iemoves his hat on entering a friend's house he is imitating the knight of mediaeval. days who, before stepping into a castle hall, doffed his helmet as proof to his host that he came in peace, and hy thus removing the most vital part of his armor, showed his absolute re liance on a friendly reception. And when the soldier of to-day raises his hand in salute, it is an Indication that, like the cavalier of old, he would be ready to "unhelm" out of politeness, if the army regulations ...

BYRON'S DEFORMITY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

BYRON'S DEFORMITY. When, with the severity of human opinion we judge the poet Byron for his small vanity, and, indeed, for his vices, we should charitably remember that his nature waB warped through a cruel affliction. He loved beauty with all his heart and soul, and his own deformity, which was not only lameness, but ug* liness of the limb, was very bitter to him. He had "the form and face of an Apollo, v/ith the feet and legs of a satyr." One day, after a bath, he held out his leg to a friend who was with him, and said: "1 hope this accursed limb will be knocked off in the war!" "It won't-improve your swimming," said the other. "I'll exchange/legs with you, if you will give me a part of your brain." "You would repent of the bargain," said the poet morosely.

Alan Currie, who has represented the North riding of the shire for the past six years, rose and said he had an announcement to make. The time for the election having come around again, he regretted that he would be unable to stand as a candidate for the North rid ing. It was with feelings of regret | that he would sever his connection with j the Council. Three years ago lie was called upon to contest an election, and was gratified that during the campaign not one word could be said by any of the ratepayers with regard to any act of the Council or misapplication of the ratepayers' money in connection with the works of the shire. But he found that a great deal was said with regard j to administration and the carrying out j of works in the North riding. lie j thought very carefully what the; reaso...

HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY AND HAPPY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY AND HAPPY HOMES. The object of this article is to im press upon the minds of our young women readers that the refinements of fashion, the, duties of the toilet, and whatever else composes the harmless amusements of young women, should on no account, unless in very particu lar instances, impede their course of instruction in the more useful and lasting duties of domestic life. To preserve a house, however humble, or however costly, in the best possible order, to have a knowledge in the making up of female attire, and to be learned in the divers processes of cookery, are qualities absolutely es sential to all young women, if they have any ambition to be placed at the head of a domestic establishment. The house being the appropriate kingdom of the wife, it is necessary that she should be a thorough mistress of all its faults, and in no instance be left at the mercy of servants, who, even if anxious to please, are seldom competent to carry on a household in its diffe...

CHILDREN'S BEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

CHILDREN'S BEDS. A child's bed should slope a little from the head to the foot, so that the head may be a little higher than the feet, m. never bend the neck to get the head on to-a pillow. This makes the child round-shouldered, cramps the veins and arteries, and interferes with the free circulation of the blood. Even when TI child is several years old the pillow should be thin and made of hair, and not on any account of feath i ers. ??

FOR THE FARMER. THE FARM MANAGER [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

FOR THE FARMER. THE FARM MANAGER More than a special knack or abil ity is required to make a farm man ager. There must be even develop ment and mastery of many powers, thorough understanding of all the es sentials of the business, self-training and wise use of the abilities of others. Train yourself, therefore, to think of the manager's work as the post of the chief engineer. Recognise that no matter how many duties are pro perly done, failure is certain if fuel and steam fail, or if brakes and throt tle are not always under control. The manager's task is to make many per sonalities act as an unit-to harmon ise the interplay of many departments. In the beginning list, group and ana lyse, the work that fills the calendar of successful managers-that goes on at your farm. Reduce your detail to system and assign it to subordinates. Make sure that you are caring for to day's and to-morrow's work and men, funds and service-that your policy upon management is well-balanced and full-rounded...

REDUCED CIRCUMSTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

REDUCED CIRCUMSTANCES. It is a pathetic thing to see people struggling with reduced circumstances that Is, a reduction of income, and an Inability to live as they have been in the habit of living. But much heart-break would be spared if when such adverse fate comes people would only at once settle . down and accept the new and smaller income, and live on what it will easily give them, rather than to try to "keep up appearances." Every day we see people trying to live in a large house with one cheap maid-of-all-work, where they had kept, and kept busy, three competent servants, or even more trying to keep up with the society that they can no longer afford to move in, by scrimping and toiling every where, and having no happiness and no peace and comfort; giving an occa sional dinner or lunch, and going with out necessaries to pay for them; mak ing over old gowns indefinitely in or der to accept invitations, and carrying hearts that ache harder and harder all the time.

HOW DO WE KNOW A GOOD FARMER? [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

HOW DO WE KNOW A GOOD FARMER? How do Ave know that a man is a good farmer? He will not tell you he is; he is too modest for that. But let's lock arms with him and take a tramp across his farm this afternoon; for seeing is believing. He is doing to-day's work to-day. That is a pretty good sign of a thor ough farmer. Things are kept pick ed up around his buildings. That we like, too. He takes us around where the cattle run against the line fences, and every rail that is out of its place he puts back where it belongs. On the way through the pasture he stops to rub the nose of the little heifer. She likes it and shows that she is on speaking terms with her master. In his gvanary there Is a bit of grain left'over from last year, and .more coming in soon from this year's grow ing. Coming home from school the boys and girls call out as soon as they are in sight: "Hello, daddy!" And with a smile on her face the good wife says: "I'm glad to have you home again, husband 1" The neighbor, passi...

DON'T WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — Lismore, Derrinallum and Cressy Advertiser — 8 July 1914

DON'T WORRY. Live la the present, deal with the present, master the present, make the most and ibest of the passing hour, and don't waste it by distressful re grets about the past, or paralysing fears about the future. Grip the ever present now. By this thorough-going concentration on to-day you are most completely redeeming your yester days, and doing your best for your possible but uncertain to-morrows. It is of no use crying over spilt milk; it is of no use to grieve concern ing what is absolutely inevitable or irretrievable, and because the events and relationships of your life will not run smoothly. If you have done your best, an angel could do no more. If you have an evil day approach ing, an unpleasant hour in front of you, or any kind of disagreeable duty or engagement whatever, meet it without delay. It is better, as a rule, to voluntarily face it sooner, than be compelled to do so later. The man who gets the most out of life is the man who puts the most ?into it, . ;? .j ?...

IT MEANS WEALTH. Raising live stock always produces more wealth in the country. It means greater investment, which, in turn, brings In greater revenue.
