AGRICULTURE. ON PLOUGHING. Some Practical Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
AGRICULTURE. ON PLOUGHING. Some Practical Hints. A recent number of the "Lincoln Col lege Magazine" contains some excel lent hints on ploughing, given in the course of a lecture by Mr. \V. Street, the farm overseer. More depends upon the quality of the ploughi^0 m«j» tanners are aware or', for, as a rule, they think that good after-cultivation will cover up the defects of bad ploughing. But it is well known that uneven plough ing shows up clearly in the succeed ing crops, for there is a ra-irkeU dif ference in the crop obtained off half a paddock ploughed at ti^in. compared with that off the other half ploughed at 4^ ill. Straight ploughing is far better than crooked, lor in taking a bend the plough is pulled away from its work and cannot pack the furrows as it should, the horses pulling one way, and the plough tending to go the other. This leaves a badly-packed furrow bot tom, which no amount of cultivation can properly remedy. It is therefore important that pioughing should be str...
Better Now Than Later. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
Better Now Than Later. One of the shrewd lairds of Lan arkshire had evidently experienced the difficulties of collecting money lent to friends. "Laird," a neighbor accosted him one morning, "I need twenty poonds. If ye'll he guid enough to tak' ma note, ye'll hae yere money hack agin in three months frae the day-" "Nae, Donald," Teplied the laird, "I canna do it." "But, laird, ye hae often done the like fer yere friends." "Nae, mon, 1 canna obleege ye." i "But, laird " "Will ye listen to me, Donald? As soon as I took yere note ye'd draw the twenty poonds, would ye no?" Donald could not deny that he would. "I ken ye weel, Donald," the laird continued, "and I ken that in three months ye'd nae be ready to pay me ma money. Then, ye ken, we'd quar rel. But if we're to quarrel, Donald, I'd rather do it boo, when I hae ma twenty poonds in ma pocket"
WOMAN'S WORLD. THE BRIDE OF HER SON. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. THE BRIDE OF HER SON. No moment in a woman's life is I quite so dillicuit as that in wiiicii she meets her son's future wife lor the lirst time, l'erhaps tlie moment is al mo t as dillicuit for the iiaucee, but I slie possesses the glorious si-if-couti uence of youth, ami cannot quite i^rasp the view-point of the woman who knows that the marriage of her son j means her loss, but his gain. A moth er rarely loses the love and friendship ol a daughter who marries, but when a son weds she instinctively commits one or two possible grave errors—she iritates her daughter-in-law by medd ling in the affairs of the new little home, or, in her anxiety not to seem interfering, she stands aloof and ap pears indifferent. The force of convention makes it particularly dillicuit for a woman to play successfully her role of mother in-law. Tradition says that all moth ers-in-law are disagreeable, officious creatures. And even if Daisy is pre pared to be charming to her husband's mother,...
HOW TO BE POPULAR. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
HOW TO BE POPULAR. Be a good listener. Always be ready to lend a hand. Never monopolise the conversation. Take a genuine interest in other people. Tke pains to remember names and faces. Look for the good in others, not for their faults. Forgive and forget injuries, but never forget benefits. Rejoice as genuinely in another's success as in your own. Have a lcind word and a cheery, en couraging smile for every one. Learn to control yourself under the most trying circumstances. Don't get into the habit of doing lit tle duties that should be done by other people. It isn't quite fair to them. In this life everyone ought to do their own work If they are to grow as they should.
OVERDOING IT. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
OVERDOING IT. "Yes," said the pert young lady, "men are becoming less polite towards women every day." "Oh, well," remarked the undoubted ly stout but charming young thing, "I'll be truthful. I can't say I have found men less polite than they used to be. Why, only yesterday, when I got into a tram-car, no less than three gentlemen rose and offered me their seats." "But wasn't that overdoing the thing dear?" smiled the red-cheeked girl. "Overdoing it, Miss Brown!" cried the stout lady. "I don't understand you. To me it seems impossible to overdo a courteous action." "Yes; but there was no call for three to offer their seats," said the other, "when two would have been quite sufficient." Has sorrow knocked at your door? Has circumstance foiled your wishes? Still there is life to be lived. Wait not till you are in happier mood, but set forward at once. Perchance then the happier mood will follow you. There is a Hindu proverb which \ can give a good deal of solid satis- J faction in a ha...
BIG BUBBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
BIG BUBBLES. 1-Iow would you like to be able to blow a soap bubble as big as a trunk? This bas been accomplished by Dr. Boys (writes A. L. Hodges, in the "Associated Sunday Magazines o£ America"), who has made them 30 inches in diameter. With large bub bles, of course, many experiments may be attempted that are not feas ible with small ones. The solution used is the well-known Plateau's solu tion, which consists of one part ol'e ate of soda to forty of water, to this being added a third its volume of glycerine. As a large bubble needs a good deal of feeding while it is be ing blown, Dr. Boys used a serrated cambric cloth put as a rim on the bubble-end of his pipe. This was first saturated with the solution, and as the 'bubble grew and expanded it was ted from this. Scientifically, a bubble is a won derful thing. The film gets so thin just 'before it bursts that there are only a few molecules from one side to the other. A bubble with the Bame density inside as the air outBide ia a pe...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
n. "Is Miss Hazelton at home?" The trim maid-servant who appeared at the door of the banker's substantial residence ou Hampstead Heatli re garded the visitor's lovely face with some curiosity and interest. She knew it well as belonging to Miss Al thea Sanden, leading lady and trage dienne at tlie Galaxy Theatre. "Yes, miss," she smiled. "Come this way, please." Althea, a vision of delight in tawny colored ninon and lace, followed her | conductress along a softly-carpeted corridor until she came to a portiere liung before an open door. Here.the girl paused aud, drawing aside the j curtain, "Miss Althea Standen!" she announced, in important tones, and stood admiringly aside as Althea pass ed in with a taint silken rustle and a delicious fragrance of violets. Already in anticipation the maid was describing in detail to her fellow servants the beauty and wonderful clothes of the famous actress, and, bubbling with excitement, she dropped the curtain into place and sped away to the kitche...
THE LADDER OF FAME. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 12 September 1914
THE LADDER OF FAME. I. "Then it's true—you are really go ing to be married?" The anguish that underlay the low spoken words—the stricken look of the woman who uttered tliom escap ed the notice of the man, who stood with his face to the fireplace, study ing a picture on tlie opposite wall. But he was not thinking of the picf-1-' rs at all, for in his eyes was a dreamy look of happiness that told the watch * er all too surely of the self-absorption that enveloped him. "Yes," lie said, slowly and lingering ly, as though he were feeding on the happiness that had come to him. "Yes, I am really going to be married; and ^-turning to his companion "I had to come and tell you first, Althea, for we've been such pals, you and I, haven't we?" She drew a short, sharp breath, and turned to the window. "When is it to be—your wedding, X mean?" she asked, in a stifled voice. "In June." He laughed joyously. "Beautiful, leafy June. What better month .could one have?" \ Tlie Words fell like'ice on tha ...
