LIFE'S AIMS AND REWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914
LIFE'S AIMS AND REWARDS. Riches, whatever their charm and their value, are not a panacea for the evils of life. . . . Happiness depends on work, health, character, disposi tion, training, and a great many other things besides income, and so far as happiness is concerned, enough money, or somewhat less than enough, puts us in just about as good a case, to achieve it as though we were rich. To live our lives, to get out what is in us, to do our share of the world's work and live brotherly with our fel lows—that is what we are here for. If riches are a" incident of that course of life, they are a good inci dent. If the chase after them hires us away from the fulfilment of our pri mary obligations to our Maker, our neighbor, and ourselves, we are cer tainly losers by it, losers not less if, succeeding, we lose the Christmas out of our year,- the Christmas spirit out o£ our lives.
THE TRAVELLER. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914
THE TRAVELLER. A reply to Rudyard Kipling's "Ho Travels Fastest Who Travels Alone." Who travels "alone with his eye on the heights, Though he laughs in the daytime, oft weeps through the nights For courage goes down with the set of the sun, When the toil of the journey is all borne hy one. He speeds but to grief, though full gaily he ride, Who travels alone without Love by his side. ® Who travels alone, without lover or friend, But hurries from nothing, to nought at the end; Though great be his winnings, and high ibe his goal. He is bankrupt in wisdom, and beg gared in 'soul. Life's one gift of value to him is de nied . Who travels alone without Love at his side. It is easy enough in this world to make haste If we live for that purpose; but think of the waste! For life is a poem, to leisurely read, And the joy of a journey lies not in its speed. Oh! vain his achievement, and petty his pride, Who travels alone without Love at his side.
New Thatch, Sir? [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914
New Thatch, Sir? The barber to his victim said, "Our hair-restorer, try. I'm sure if you take my advice, you'll benefit there by." "It does not recommend itself, so pray to me don't prate," as scornful ly he gazed upon the barber's shiny pate. The barber said, "I show 'Before,' I solemnly declare; for representing 'After use,' take my assistant's hair!"
AMUSING INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914
AMUSING INCIDENTS. Teacher—-Now, children, can you tell me what are the national flowers of England? Class—Roses. Teacher—And France? Class—Lilies. Teacher—And Spain? Silence for a minute—then small voice at back of the schoolroom— Bulrushes, ma'am. "So you are engaged to Tom?" "Yes." "My d6ar, I congratulate you. Tom is the nicest fiance I ever had." "What is going on?" asked the terrified stranger in Central America. "Revolution," replied the man in the uniform. "Who is the leader of the rebels?" "Don't know yet. That's what this fight is about." "Yes, sir," said Dobbleigh, "horses are ruining my brother Tom. He's crazy about' them. Just paid twelve hundred pounds for a pair of trot ters." "Well, I don't know," said Billups. "How about yourself? What did yoii pay for that touring car of yours?" "Fifteen hundred," said Dobbleigh. "But what " "Well, you'd better not criticise the team in your brother's eye until you have cast out the motor that is in your own ,eye," retorted Billups...
A Good Two Miles. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914
A Good Two Miles. After a hard day's work at manoeu vres, a battalion of soldiers were marching wearily along a seemingly interminable country road, when they met a man on horseback. "I say/'ssaid the officer in command, "how far is it to the next town?" "About two miles," was the reply. For another hour the soldiers tramped, and then met another stran ger. "How far is it to the next town?" he was asked. "A good two miles, I should say," was the reply. Another hour passed, and then an other horseman was encountered. "How far?" he repeated, in answer to the same question; "oh, not far, only about two miles." "Well," sighed the optimistic offi cer, "thank goodness, we are holding our own, anyhow."
IMPROVING THE MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914
IMPROVING THE MEMORY. Notebooks arc the worst enemies of a good memory- If you don't use your legs, the muscles get flabby and are unable to stand any sudden strain imposed upon them. The same thing hp.ppens with the memory. When you form the habit of jotting down in a notebook every trifling item you wish to remember, you cannot reasonably expect the neglected memory to do its work efficiently. You have, perhaps, heard that the best way to make sure of n'waking at a particular hour in the morning is to say the hour aloud to yourself sev eral times just 'before nestling down to sleep. Should you intend to rise at six o'clock you impress this hour upon the mind so firmly that you are almost Eure to awake somewhere near it. By extending this system you can obtain a quite serviceable memory. Associate things together. Make an assertion like, "After I have cleaned my bicycle to-morrow I must do so and-so," and let the command sink in. The two duties may be totally dissim ilar, yet you w...

CHAPTER XIX. The Ship Comes to Port. I. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914
CHAPTER XIX. The Ship Comes to Port. I. Hugh had a vague idea as to Mat Michel's reason for their voyage to Cherbourg: but. it was verv indefinite and the philosopher no longer spok? ! about it. A brusque "Ye shall kno\,r when the time comes," was the best that could be got out of him, and even George Pledges, with a prime clerical faculty pf interrogation, did next to nothing with such a secret oracle. Mat feared to disappoint h's friends and held his tongue. The only oerson on board who seemed to un derstand him was Madame Adele. Cintra, all said and done, had been but a house of captivity to her. A. neurotic' dream of love, dreamed by one who was doomed to die, had giv en place speedily to the darker hour when she had come to understand thn tragic jest which Fate had planned for her. Taken from her home as by magic, now she turned wistful eyes to France again, desiring the little house by the railway, and the friends to whom she was flesh and blood and not the Madonna of a pictur...
III. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914
III. ..St. • Denys "was the most amazed man in Suffolk when his sister told him to have his clothes packed and to take himself off from Datton.. Hs /really thought that a usually clever woman was losing her wits. "What, Minnie, but you said *yo'ir . self that it was doing me a devilish lot of good, now,' didn't you?" "You are certainly better for a few days of sobriety, Desmond'. . ■ I think if you continue, that you may live some years longer. But I cannot have you here next week; I am ex pecting guests." "Guests—good God—aren't I a guest? Do you. turn me out for strangers, Minnie?" "Exactly what I am proposing to do . . . in very plain words, Desmond. When it is convenient, I will send for you again." The man pulled fiercely at his auburn moustache, and seemed quite crushed by the indignity. "In that case," he said, with a vain seeking after the majestic, "in that case, I take the kid—you'll see if t don't." Her ladyship raised her eyes and merely looked at him—he knew that glance...
THE LADIES' COLUMN PHILOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914
THE LADIES' COLUMN I PHILOSOPHY OF FURNITURE. Anybody with money in hand can select and purchase furniture, and any hands can place said furniture around thexfour walls of a parlor, boudoir, or bedroom;- hut: there is furniture and furniture, furnishing and furnishing, and therein lies the philosophy we write of; not that inanimate wood has this of itself, hut the maker of each piece of furniture, be it of sim ple pine or walnut, the old-time ma hogany, or the much-prized oaken fur niture of today, has wrought into it, withreach planing and chiselling, each twist and curve, the mind of the mas ter who controls its shapeliness; as hi eye is artistic and delights itself in the beautiful, so he Avills the block of raw material shall acquire a like symmetry and chasteness. Yet, granted all this prepared in or der for the purchaser, the household er is not by this assured a tastefully furnished home. A taste to fashion is one thing, and a taste to select and arrange another. The buyer sh...
LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 29 May 1914
LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." From the time he emigrated to Can ada, at the age of eighteen, until he was forty-eight, the late Lord Strath cona spent all his time at various posts of the Hudson Bay Company, newly located on the Labrador. In all tliose thirty years among the northern Indians and the Eskimos, Donald Smith, as he then "was, held lr'mself strictly to the niceties of life; so that when, as a man of middle age, he returned to civilised life and the highest office in the gift of the Hud son Bay Company, there were no rough edges of either speech or man ner to toe overcome. Nothing shows this better than a story told on the Labrador while he was governor of the company. It is a rule of the Hudson Bay Company that no woman shall 'be allowed pass age on its boats. One day, as a steam I' er of the company neared one of the ! northernmost ports, a string of white garments was seen stretched across deck. The watchers were amazed; for to them the wash-line suggested only...

AGRICULTURE. THE USE OF LIME. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 2 June 1914
AG R I C U L.ORE, THE USE OF LIME. The fertility of the soil is dependent npon the presence and activity of bac terial life, and no matter how lavishly manure is applied, the absence on sus pended action of the nitrifying organ isms cannot be atoned for. The soil which is not occupied by soil bacteria is held to be necessarily infertile; therefore, we must proceed on a me thod of manuring to promote the in crease and activity of nitrifying organ isms. sLiute as a manure plays a'most important part in all'soils deficient in this substance, as it preserves the .soil in:a healthy and productive stale by neutralising the accumulation of acids and otherwise promoting and facilita ting the acitivity of the nutrifying or ganisms. The quantity to be used differs according to tlie nature of the soil to be treated, but as far as in telligent interpretation of well-defined, practical results are concerned, large applications have always been shown to be harmful, as well as wasteful, in that th...
GOOD HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 2 June 1914
GOOD HORSES. "If we expect to produce good horses, the farmer and breeder must educate himself to be a better judg-e." A fundamental truth is undoubtedly contained in the sentence. The man untaught of standards will fail gener ally in"reaching Hie top in any line of efforts. If he does not know what constitutes excellence, if lie fails to understand perfection of product, if he lacks the inspiring ideal, only bull headed luck will land him at the top— and such luclc does not often accom pany efforts at the propagation of an imal form. Why are -so many inferior horses produced? Is it because the farmer must breed them? Ts it because lie can produce 110 other kind? Is it, be cause he is too poor to get the right sort? Is it because climate is against him? By 110 means. It is because either he does not know bSttor or is too poor to do better. Generally tlie first explanation applies. There are few farmers who cannot afford to pa tronise a good stallion instead of a mean one. Why does t...

FRUIT DRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 2 June 1914
FRUIT DRYING. Fruitgrowers 'will be interested in the report of Mr. T. E. Sedgwick, who was commissioned by the Council of the Royal Horticultural Society to study the methods of fruit preserving iii Germany, with the view of ascer taining how far the German methods might, be applicable to English me thods. It appears by the newer me thods in Germany that only so much water is removed from the fruit by drying as is absolutely necessary to its keeping, thus producing good fla vor. The machine commonly used for this purpose consists of a self-contain ed stove from which heated air passes through a long barrel-like container in which are, placed a series of trays, the sides of which are of wood and the bottoms of galvanised wire. As the trays are filled with the prepared fruit, they are inserted in the racks inside the barrel, and the fruit is gradually evaporated as the current of hot ait carries off the essential moisture. An improved form of this kind of appara tus has a circulating...

Rochester Progressive. THE NEW STATE SCHOOL. | The work of the erection of the iieiv Stale school No. 795, at Ro chester is now fairly on its way, and is being proceeded with steadily.. The site is almost an ideal one ex cept for the fact that it is not cen tral as it is near the northern boun dary ot the town, and but a few chains distant from the racecourse corner. It occupies a fine open area, once designed for cattle yards, of 5 acres and on the western side is a vscant space, reaching to the Echuca road, which the committee hope may be added to the school ground. The school building and accessories are contracted for by the Northern Timber and Hard ware Co., at a cost of about L2000, and the operations are under the supervision of Mr A. T. Ward, in spectorof the Public Works depart ment, who is also superintending the alterations at the Court House, The reinforced concrete founda tions are being laid down in a man ner to ensure stability, a fealure too much neglected in regard ...
