WHEN YOU GO INTO TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 October 1914

WHEN YOU GO INTO TOWN. ^ (By Llewellyn J. Williams.) When you go into town for supplies I Do you always take Mandy along?1 Your little worn wife, with the dull1 tired eyes, Who sees little of laughter or song. Do you buy all the things she needs— I They are paltry and poor at the best; Do you grumble and frown as she argues or pleadB, Do you growl—or agree with a jest? When you go into town for supplies ■ Your tobacco you nevei; forget; That's the first thing of all that your money e'er buys, While you ne'er have a pang of re gret. Do you ever take Mandy with kindly intent To the fountain to buy her a pop? Does it do your heart good as she smiles in content As she drinks to the last tasty drop? • - ..v.. When you go into town for supplies, If you haven't e'er done it before,) Just take her along for a happy sur prise And turn her loose once in the store. You will bring a great joy to her heart, If she shares in the money's that spent. It's but right she should have a good part. For ...

"I am making no mistake," I answer ed, with the calm assurance o£ the i man who Itnoivs what he is talking about. "Uunfortunately, I am only too sure.

GENERO[?] LIPTON. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 October 1914

GENIZRO&3 UPTON. . "It requires a lot of courage and charity to be philanthropic,' said Sir Thomas Lipton. "I remember when I was just starting in business. I was very poor, and making every sacri fice to enlarge my little shop. My only assistant was a boy of fourteen, faithful, willing and honest. One day I heard him complaining, and with justice, that his clothes were so shab by that he was ashamed to go to any place of worship on Sunday. 'There is no chance of my getting a new suit this year,' he told me. 'Dad's out of work, and it takes all my wageB to pay the rent.' "I thought the matter over, and then took a sovereign from my carefully hoarded savings and bought the boy a stout, warm suit of blue cloth. He was so grateful that I felt repaid for my sacrifice. But the next day he didn't come to work. I met his moth er in the street and asked her the rea son. 'Why, Mr. Lipton,' she said, curtsying, 'Jimmie looks so respec table, thanks to you, sir, that I thought I would ...

THE AGRICULTURAL CYCLE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 October 1914

THE AGRICULTURAL CYCLE. The best system o£ agriculture is based upon good crops and well-bred live stock. Mr. C. W. Burkott, in "The First Principles of deeding Farm Animals," aptly describes the cycle of life as the soil, the plant and the animal, each dependent on one another, and giving to, or receiving from, the others the things vital 'o its very existence. Without soil there would be no animals, and without plants or animals there would be a useless barren soil. There are twelve important elements that enter into and are essential to plant and animal "rowth. Animals, however, cannot gather them from either the sou or the air; nor would it be possible ipv the animals to use them it they coutd, as these elements would be poison lo animal life. U is necessary im plants to take these elements and build them into tissue first. On -h.s tissue the animal feeds. When -he animal dies, with its dbcay anA de composition, comes the changes ov animal tissue back to soil and a, , thus compl...

BATTLE OF THE PHOSPHATES. The Question of Citric Solubility. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 31 October 1914

BATTLE OF THE PHOSPHATES. The Question of Citric Solubility. Many farmers may remember the wordy war that occurred some years ago between the advocates of super phosphate, as representing water soluble phosphate, and the advocates of raw insoluble phosphate finely ground. Tho struggle between tho two forms of phosphate was of short duration, and ended in a decisive vic tory for superphosphate. The battle of the phosphates has now been transferred to basic slag, and ia being hotly contested between those who advocate that slag should be sold only on its percentage of cit ric-soluble (Wagner's test), and those who hold the opinion that the sale of slag should not be restricted to this one method, which they characterise as arbitrary. The various champions of differeru methods back up their views by ar guments, and farmers must be puz zled as to which combatant deserves the prize—namely, the farmers' cus tom. So far no knock-out blow has been given, though Ho the onlooker the citric-so...

TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914

TROUBLE. Did you meet that trouble that came your way j With a smiling heart, and cheerful; ' Or hide your face from light o' day, With a craven soul,, and fearful? i Oh! trouble's an ounce, or trouble's a ton. Yes, trouble is just what you make it, And it isn't the fact that you're hurt that counts, But only, "How did you take it?" You are beaten to earth, well! well! what's that? Come up, with a smiling face; It's nothing against you to fall down flat, But to lie there, that's a disgrace. The harder you're thrown, the higher you bounce. Bo proud of your blackened eye, For it isn't the fact you'ro licked that counts. But how did you fight, and why?" And though you be done to the death, what then? If you've battled the best you could. If you've played your part in the world o' men, The Critic will call it "Good!" Death comes with a crawl, or he comes with a pounce, And, whether he be slow or spry, It's never the fact that you're dead that counts, But only "How did you di«?"

ARE LOVE MARRIAGES BEST? Nearly All the Celebrities Answer "Yes." [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914

[ ARE LOVE MARRIAGES BEST? I I 1 I Nearly All the Celebrities Answer "Yes." The question as to whether love marriages turn out the best is one on which opinion seems to be some what divided. Although marriage without love often spells disaster, there are not a few who contend that if marriages were more generally ar ranged, as they are in France, by parents, guardians, and relatives, we should hear far less of the miserv and unhappiness which so often follow boy and girl unions, and which are so frequently the result of youthful fancy and infatuation. Alme. Waddington, 1 ho widow of the French statesman, thinks tint on the whole arranged marriages turn out as well as any others. They are gener ally made by people of the same class accustomed to the same way of liv ing, and their fortunes are as nearly alike as possible. "I am speaking, of course," she says, "of purely French marriages. To my American idea it seemed strange to me when I first came to Europe, but a long residence in a...

CORSETS AND MOTOR-CARS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914

CORSETS AND MOTOR-CARS. The up-to-date motor manufacturer has heen compelled to add to his tech nical staff a "corset engineer," whose duties, in a way, are just as vital to the success of the make of the new model as those of the motor expert. You would be surprised to know friat the motor concerns are infinitely bet ter informed as to the makes and the variations in corsets than the ordinary woman who worries abouL her figure. The knowledge of what is doing in the corset world and the utilisation of it means thousands of pounds in sale and profit to the manufacturer. How? Why, for one thing, it determines the style of motor-car upholstery. This is explained by the fact that, whereas one style of corset in vogue to-day may encourage a luxurious lolling position of the wearer; another style, in vogue to-morrow, may compel a severely upright position. Conse quently designers find it incumbent to study other matters besides motor engineering. Advance information being desir able, the ...

SCHOLAR AND HERMIT. Romance of a Literary Wine Merchant. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914

SCHOLAR AND HERMIT. Romance of a Literary Wine ' Merchant. For a man with a passion for books to hide himself from the world in order that he may live alone with his literary treasures is not an uncommon occurrence. It is very seldom, how ever, that a man will sacnlico a lucra tive business and live like an an chorite in order to devote himself to literary work. Yet that is what Mr. Charles Augustus Ward, the literary wine merchant of Waltliamstow, did, his recent death revealing an extra ordinary romance of a scholar-hermit. For many years Mr. Ward earned on a wine business in Mayfair, which he inherited from his father, and which showed at one time a profit of £1200 a year. His-great ambition, however, was to be regarded as a lit erary man. He possessed consider able knowledge of Latin and Greek and modern languages. Furthermore, he was something of a poet and a good deal of a philosopher. Arid his pas sion for books was so great that he left the management of his business to cler...

THE DOCTOR'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914

THE DOCTOR'S ADVICE. The late Dr. Torrop, the "factory doctor" of Heywood, was a keen critic of the housewives he came in contact with. He gave them advice at timeB in a very outspoken maimer. On one occasion he was visiting a patient, and, cucumber and onions be ing mentioned, the doctor asked if the lady knew how to properly prepare that desirable appetiser. Without waiting for her reply he began to "lay down the law:" "Take a good-sized cucumber," he said, "skin it lengthways; cut it into very thin slices. Next an onion; shred it as fine as the cucumber; place in alternate layers in a shallow glass dish; season with pepper and salt; cover with vinegar, and leave in a cool place for four hours; then take up the dish very carefully, walk into the backyard, and pour the contents into the ash-pit!" A wealthy man was motoring through a remote district in Ireland, when he came upon a poor woman seated, with all her humble furniture about her, in the middle of the road before her little...

THE CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 7 November 1914

THE CRISIS. By Leslie Thomas. He knew well enough how Jessie would have spent the evening, if he had been indoors. He had grown tired of her frequent complaints and re grets. "Just as though I'h hard up for the pleasure of the thing!" muttered Wal ter Biron resentfully, as he trudged along home. "I couldn't prevent Quex anj Galer's bankruptcy. It was no fault of mine!" His day's search for employment had' been unsuccessful, as usual. Sick of disappointments and rebuffs, he had deliberately stayed out late to avoid his wife's irritating questions. She made no allowances, he reflected. She^ persisted in believing that good posi tions were easily obtainable for the mere asking. Her manner during the pask weeks of anxiety plainly showed she was sorry she had ever mar ried him. She knew his savings were gone and lie was desperate for money; yet, just because it had belonged to her mother, and contained a portrait and a lock of hair, she obstinately refused to part with that old-fashioned...
