"CLOUD AND SUNSHINE." [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 27 June 1914

"CLOUD AND SUNSHINE." Root's sacred cantata "Cloud and Sunshine," was rendered in the Preston Methodist church on Thursday evening, June 18, before a large audience, Rev. E. 0. Knee presiding. A choir of about 40 voices occupied the gallery. The performance was a distinct success, and the several soloists acquitted themselves well. Miss Gamble sang very sweetly "The Stars on the Jordan-" Miss Grierson, being ill, and unable to be pre sent, her part was taken, almost with out rehearsal, by Miss Mutimer, who sang splendidly and was enthusiastically applauded; her rendering of the contralto solo, "The Evening Moon," was per haps the gem of the evening, and in ■conjunction with Mr. Endersbee the duet, "And the Lord went before," was also much appreciated. Mr. F. Long, in the bass, and Mr. Endersbee, the tenor parts, sang with taste and expres sion. Of the choruses, "Haste from Egypt" was sung: with fine precision. "Forward," with its lead for basses and tenors, was very good, while the ...

BURN YOUR OWN SMOKE. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 27 June 1914

BURN YOUR OWN SMOKE. When . the late James Anthony. Froude published 1iIb volume of scep tical reflections, entitled,"The Nem esis of Faith," Thomas Carlyle's gruff comment on the hook was that Froude "should burn-his own smoko and; not trouble other people's, nostrils with it." This criticism may have wounded Froude, but it certainly corrected him, for he-soon lost his tendency to. turn his heart inside out for other peo ple's inspection, and though lie. was always a doubter, ;hlB denials wore few, and he did not offer his'doubtB. to the public as a wholesome spiritual food. Most of us make more or less smoke; we do not burn with; a clear bright flame. When a preacher tells his congregations his doubts and per plexities and guesses, he is .throwing of£ smolce. When a man parades lijs trials and difficulties aud displays ir ritability that everything is not going ' to Ills mind, lie is blowing off smoke. We do not say a human life can be "free from this waste product any more than a...

WHITEWASHING TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 27 June 1914

WHITEWASHING TREES. Doubtless the old-tlm'e~'farmer who whitewashed hia fruit and other trees about his house did so maiuly to pre sent a neat appearance. But many of them did it as well to kill insects and their eggs which were harboring un der the dead bark of tlio trees. The use of lime as one of the ingredients in mixtures for the killing of Insects and tho spores of injurious fungi, has been In practice for very many years. When a boy learning tho gardening business,- I well remember the head gardener using a mixture of lime and sulphur and - common garden soli to paint grapo-vino canes in tho winter season. The garden soil was for tho purpose of giving the mixture tho hue of the grape cane, that It might retain its natural appearance. The foliage of these vines were never troubled by Insects or blights. At the same time that the vines were painted a little sulphur was dusted about on the com mon Hues, which were almost wholly used for heating greenhouses in those days, to keep...
