LOVE AND MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
LOVE AND MAKHIAGE. Marriage is a study. To bo a hus band or wife is a world more than the friestly benediction has foreshadowed, t is the business of a lifetime, as the prelude to an eternal existence. Its rewards are in the delights and perfec tions which are incident to maturity; the penalties arc the Briefs and discon tents that attach themselves ior inde tinit'.- p.'-rinds to the spirit, and will not disappear at command. Love is not a passion, but a principle of being, not merely essential to the happiness of life, but to Ihe actual life itself.* It is the great departure from selfishness, and all those ideas and considerations that revolve round self as their common centre. There is no lownrinc of the tone, the character, the humanity, but their exaltation to a higher moral and spiritual plane. There is no real sun render or curtailing of freedom, but a fliroollon oi it in its llsitijanU ciiatitio).

NOT A VIRTUE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
NOT A VIRTUE. Those uncomfortable people who pride themselves upoi. saying just what they think, on all occasions, are unpopular, and deserve to be. Their boasted frankness is generally ill-con ce'aled malice, and tneir unsolicited opinions are generally of an impertin ent nature. We have no right to say what we think, unless v.e think first of al! justly, then kindly and lovingly: no ripht to unload our jealousies, en v'.es, bad moods,, and miserable spites upon the hearts of our neighbours. If we must be bad tempered, we should at least keep our venom locked up in our breasts, and not let it nut to wound others. Truths need not be unpleas ant in order to be accurate Are there no lovely, charming, gracious truths in the world? If there are, why cannjt people diligently tell these, making others happier for the telling, rather than hasten to proclaim ail the dis agreeable ones they can discover? The judicious flatterer is sure to be a favorite, for-no matter what is said to the cont...
HOW ONE SHEEP RESCUED ANOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
HOW ONE SHEEP RESCUED ANOTHEE. While Itio Rev. Edward Husband, of Folkestone, was. riding past a field on liis tricycle one day, an excited sheep rail up to liim bleating piteously. The moment he stopped the sheep galloped towards the farther end of the field, and then raced back to him looking at him beseechingly and still Writing. Though Sir. Hustand could see nothing but trees at the end of the field, he was fori-ed to go along with the sheep, >o intelligently did the creature show that it wanted his help. Therefore on_ he went, the sheep leading. At a particu lar spot he Baw it run round and round iu the same excited fashion, as much aa to say, " Hurry up as fast as you can." And when Sir. Husband reached the place he found that a sheep hod fallen into a deep stream of water, and was struggling in vain to qet out. Thanks, however, to its fellow-sheep and to Mr. Husband, the anima was saved from drowning. And yet people will call sheep Btupid.
THE WAY TO SLEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
THE WAY TO SLEEP. The attitude of the body in sleeping has a direct influence upon the heart, lungs, and digestive organs. The car riage of the body while awako is also largely affected by its position during the third or more of the day spent in sleep. One should alwayB sleep on the right side. The body should be extended to its full length and the head thrown well back. The left arm should he thrown as far back as possible, thus expanding the chest. When one lies on the left Bide on un usual weight comes juat over tho heart, which should, of course, be left 113 free as possible. The lower the pillow the better. High bolsters hold the head at an unusual angle. Jinny people are made round sliouldcrcd by using too hip,h pillows. The habit of sleeping with the head at such an angle is soon acquired. To cure one's self it is well to reduce the height )f tho pillow gradually.

THE CHEERFUL COUNTENANCE [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
IHE CHEERFUL COUNTENANCE A cheery heart makes a pleasant face and from the same source proceeds the hearty impulse to speak the kind word. The bright face and hopeful, helpful tone are like the warm ray of sunlight that reaches through clouds and gloom, and stirs to happy life and action. A cheerful person is such a comfort. Of course, some dispositions are na turally more cheerful than others, and surroundings may have their influence. Yet, cheerfulness is a virtue that can be cultivated. It is not to be wondered at if the clouds that enshroud us oeem, at the time, to be darker and heavier than were ever any before. It requires a tremendous effort, sometimes, to even try to lift one's head to the light, while ft is utterly impossible to think of the idea of reflecting it. Perhaps, if we knew, those who ap Eear the most light-hearted and sunny ave burdens of rorrow and trouble and perplexities that we might consider more thn/i we could pos sibly bear. To those who so un complainingl...
Marconi's Early Life. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
MaroonI'S Early Life. The influence of mothers on the world's progress in science, art, and commerce is not sufficiently recognis ed. Some of the cleverest men in all professions and industries have been chiefly indebted to their mothers for their success. I could unc a dozen well-known men as instances of this. A daily paper adds another to the list. All Irish lady, Aunie Jameson, daugh ter of the famous distiller-a beautiful and high-spirited girl, was given every educational advantage that money and Ireland could afford, and then was sent to Italy to complete her musical stud ies. There she met and married a young Italian of good family. She had two sons and devoted her life to their training. She took her eldest with her on her travels about Italy, England, and Ireland. He began to show an interest in electricity and chemistry, and to construct little instruments. His mother bought him books and periodi cals to guide and instruct him. Money was spent on him, and every encour age...

IS IT TRUE? [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
IS IT TRUEP "Do you know tho three quickest ways of transmitting newaP" was asked me lust night. " I'm no use at puzzles," I answered; " wliat are tho three?" "Telegraph, telephone, and tcll-Br womau!" I laughed the laugh of superior know ledge, and firmly denied the insinuation; and yet-the very first moment I get pen to paper, hero I am telling the story I There must bo a fraction of truth in the statement^ I suppose, else it would have been handed down like this to posterity. But, after all, the faculty of " telling " may arouse approbation in stead of cynical remarks, if it ii used only for passing ^ on kind and pleasant things, things of importance, and thingi of interest.
Young Mat's Triumph. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
Young Mat's Triumph. Matthew Arnold s son Mat had vojj decided opinions. One night the boy heard some one say that the moon is made of green cheese. Very quickly lie said: "I don't believe the moon is made o[ green cheese." "Don't you?" said his father; "why not?" . v "Oh," said the young gentleman, . "I don't know why; but I don't." "Well, for my part," said his father, "f have no respect for people who givo opinions for which tlu-y can givo no reasons." Young Mat was very much mortified, and went off by himself to hide his feelings. The next morning, as bright as possible, he greeted his father with this: "1 know now why the moon Is not made of green cheese. I found it out in Genesis." "Ah," said Matthew Arnold, sen., "you have the advantage of me; I did not know the subject was mentioned In Genesis." "Oh, yes, papa," said the boy, "there Is an account of the creation, and the moon was made before there were any cows." So Matthew the younger triumphed over Matthew the older.
Made a Difference. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
Made a Difference. A clergyman in a provincial town asked the ladies o£ his congregation to contribute something towards a cer-' tain fund, suggesting that they might earn the mone.Vj instead of giving out o£ their plenty. Ho wished to limit each contribution to half a sovereign. Later the workers all met and re counted their experiences. One had done her own laundry work, another had made herself a dress, and thus saved a dressmaker's bill, and so on. "Now, Mrs. X," said the clergyman to the only lady who hadn't spoken. "It is your turn." "I got it from my husband," she an swered. "Oh," said he. "From your hus band? There was uo hard work about that." The lady smiled faintly. "You don't know my husband," she 8aid.

DON'T TELL. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
DON'T TELL. Don c tell anyone your cbildrens faults, even to their relatives. If you need advice get it privately. Mortify ing children creates bitterness in their untrained hearts and estranges them from you. Don't tell your own age or ask for figures concerning otuers. Don't tell your neighbor that you disapprove of his or her ideas. By so doing you will find how soon you will be forgotten by them. Do not tell that your children can not be Induced to read, for this is largely your own fault. Educate their tastes in reading by your own interest in books. You will find that, as chil dren grow older, their tastes in litera ture will change for the better. If one child likes a certain kind of read ing do not compel another to listen to it, but give all an equal chance.

"What is there to prevent it'"

SIMPLICITY ITS KEYNOTE. rWhile the inhabitants o? other coun tries are now making at tempts to re 4nTn to a simpler mode of lite. It 1B Interesting to remember that in Ice land "the simple life" has been In vogue for generations. There are no manufactories in the country.
