WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the'Decks for Action. When we have a special work to do we first "clear tho decks for action." If there is a.n absorbing piece of literary work to be accomplished, the usual desk detail is cleared away, the ink bottle filled, the old pens re placed with new ones; when a busi ness man has a large undertaking on hand, he first rids his calendar of small appointments and annoying cir cumstances; the clerk in the store, to show a new line of goods, clears his counter of everything else; every good business manager, in order to have his men work to advantage, re lieves them first of petty inconveni ences which would hinder their pro gress. This is good business manage ment. Time and money are gained thereby. The housekeeper, in order to forge ahead in her work, and make time count, needs to be relieved of clutter and inconvenient arrangements which are on all sides a bar to progress. It is her habit to clear away her dishes and clean ...

PROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914

PROM VARIOUS SOURCES. Adrian Velancourt was a tall, pale. J serious young man earning thirty-five shillings a week as a solicitor's clerk His heart was pure and eager, and his physical beauty was such as to make young women cast sidelong eyes of marvel as they passed him. Glad eyes, in fact. To him came a Cradle Snatcher in the shape o£ the land lady's daughter. "If you're good," she said to her victim, "you shall have some treacle-pudding." It was that fatal treacle-pudding that lured poor Adrian to his doom. It was as deadly as Mr. Pickwick's "chops and tomato sauce." Prom treacle-pudding Ciesie quickly advanced to the darning of Adrian's socks and the sewing on o1? Adrian's buttons. Young men, never let a Cradle-Snatchcr darn your socks or sew on your buttons. It is the be ginning of the end. The next move of the artful Cissie was to put flowers in I Adrian's room. That trick softened his innocent young heart, and then came the terrible evening when Cis sie found him sitting in t...

DID YOU? [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914

DID YOU? Did you give him a lilt; He's a brother of man, And bearing about all the burden he can. Did you give him a smile? He was downcast and blue, And the smile would have helped him to battle it through. Did you give him your hand? He was slipping down hill, And the world, so I fancied, was using him ill. Did you give him a word? Did you show him tlio road, Or did you just let him go on with his load? Do you know what it means to be losing the fight, When a lift just in time might set everything right? Do you know what it means—just the clasp of a hand, When a man's borne about all a man ought to stand? Did you ask what it was—wuy the quivering lip? Why the half-suppressed sob, and the scalding tears drip? Were you brother of his ,when the time came of need? Did you offer to help him, or didn't you heed?

A Milder Term. A complaint was brought before the Bishop of Exeter that a clergyman in his diocese was wearing an Oxford master's hood when, in fact, he had no such degree.

AGRICULTURE. TEST YOUR SEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914

AGRICULTURE. TEST YOUR SEEDS. TeBting clover, grass seed, etc.: Take two common plates and get two pieces of cotton cloth about the size o£ the plates.

If ninety to ninety fivo seeds grow, the germination is pretty good, but below ninety the value o£ the seed begins to be doubt ful.

THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914

THE FARM HAND OF THE FUTURE. According to Mr. Gilbert, author of "Fortunes for Farmers," spiritless Hodge is to be supplanted by an alert blue-smoclted engineer, who will re ceive good wages and do the work of ten men, and be worth h, hundred. If this be tlio type of man who is to do the tillage of the future, he will re quire a standard wage as will enable him to livo in a good dwelling, and thus the rural housing problem will soon solve itself! Mr. Gilbert has evidently a warm heart for small holdings, but pertinently says, "they cannot be established anywhere—only on better soils can tli<?y succeed."

HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 18 June 1914

HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? Wo get i'rom the land what wo put into It. If we build permanently we will be sheltered in later days; if we | plant wisely we will read the content ment in the shade of the next genera tion. If a farm is regarded as merely a cold, money making enterprise we ' miss the harvest of good living in later years; but if we regard the farm as a home and cultivate those essen tials of satisfying living, comforts, trees and flowers, and things of beauty we reap a perennial harvest in the ripe years of old age when such things con.e to have a value far be yond grains and fat beasts.

VIM OF THE FARMER. The farmer's i?im shows in getting at the work the minute it is ready. Shows, too, in the way he pushes that work. Ono day on and two days off point to failure in the near future. Vim shows, also, in the pride a man puts into his work. Some men show by their very faces that they love their work and are hound to do it just right. They are the ones that come out at the head of the heap. Vim keeps a man's heart bright and cheery. Takes a pretty good man to whistle just as iheerily when it rains as when it shines! The man with true vim in his heart can do it, and he will do it. Any men with vim down your way?
