HORSE FACTS. Chestnut horses, like rod-haired people, havo earned the reputation of possessing more than the usual am ount of temper. It may not be true of red-haired men, hut it is true of chestnut horses. Don't ride a chest nut unless you are a finished horse man. A fast walk In a horse is faster than a slow trot.

"DONT'S" FOR IMMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

Don't act on tho assumption that, being an Englishman, you arc the salt of the earth, which, perhaps, explains why in Australia he is so often in a pickle. Don't think, much less suggest, that you havo conferred a favor by coming to this country. They could get on just as well without your assistance. Don't forget that everyone doesn't take you at your own valuation. Don't, if you are a man, forget to be manly. Don't grumble. And again dou't grumble. Two can play at that game, "warranted All Bristles" is a fine trade mark for a good brush, but not for a brand-new immigrant. Some people would grumble even in Hea ven—if they got there. Don't forget that you are a citizen of the new country as soon as you en ter, or that it is as "great" a country as you could wish for. Don't become a little ...

Hugh admitted the Infamy. "I am trusting to my Judgment," h'J said; "if we did that always,, life would he rather easier. Just consider, George, how much that we do is the result of men's convictions or their prejudices. Sometimes the prejudices are feminine—the argument 1s the ; same.

HAIRLESS DOG OF MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914
HAIRLESS DOG OF MEXICO. X his breed has never been at all common, even in their own country, while the past few years one sees them very seldom. They have a email patch of hair at the top of the head, otherwise they are absolutely hairless. They are usually about the size of a medium-sized for-terrier, are good watchdogs, and have good tem pers especially as they grow old. They recent being touched, yet they are af fectionate, and will protect to the "last ditch" auyone tliey care for. One good point is they do not snap at people, but growl chestily, giving due warning that one must attend to one's own affairs. Legend says that the great Aztec chief, Moctezuma, had one *of these hairless dogs, and that until Mocte zuma comes again to earth some fow j of this species will still wander, await ing their chief. They certainly re-i semble the typical Indian characters in tenacity of purpose. i

I haven't heard such a sound for ten years." The audience applauded this senti ment, the orchestra stopped, and the , baby continued its performance amid j unbounded enthusiasm. I

MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914
MORAL REFLECTIONS. Against the superiority of another thore is no remedy but lore. A weak nature is injured by pros perity; a finer by adversity; tho fin est by oelther. For some men success is a reaj misfortune; it dazes them completely like a dizzy height. No man docs his best except when lie is cheerful. A light heart makes nimble hands and keeps tho mind free and alert. Wealth is honorable and may be used most blessedly whon men regard themselves as being what Indeed thoy are—stewards of it, and not the owners. The life without regret Is tho life without gain. Regret is but the light of fuller wisdom from our past, illu minating our future. It means that wo aro wiser to-day tlran wo were yesterday. It la not great calamities that em bitter existence; it is the small petty vexations, the small jealousies, tho little disappointments, the "minor miseries" that make the heart heavy and the temper sour. Anger is a pure waste of vitality. It helps nobody and hinders every body. It is ...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. If milk ie kept in a large, shallow basin it will remain sweet for a long er tlmo than if kept In a deep jug. Jewellers often keep a piece of gum camphor in the cases with their silver goods. It keeps them from tarnishing, and should be equally useful for the liousewifo. Warts are very disfiguring to the hands. They will sometimes yield to the touch of n lump of soda, which j must he moistened at one end mid rubbed in the wart damp.
