ENTERTAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

ENTERTAINING. | Fortunately, c * unfortunately, no one goes constantly to another per i son's house unless it Is made worth his while, and a hostess who realises this without taking offence has gone a long way towards making her task easy. It is not mean, but natural to expect some return for the trouble of paying i visit or accepting an imitation. "We may go to a house to be Interested in conversation, have a good meal, meet pleasant people, _see something we don't see at home, or otherwise please ourselves- with our visit? ■ - .. So one can with reason expect oth* ed people to come and see them for more disinterested motives than they themselves are actuated by. After all, the affection which is bestowed with out asking anything in return can only be expected once or twice in a lifetime. , I consider that entertainJng.is one of the most wholesome forms which a housewife's energies can take, pro vided ehe keeps It entirely subservi ent to her other home interests.

WHAT TRUE LOVE IS. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

WHAT TRUE LOVE IS. True love is nor the sudden produce of a chance meeting. It is brought about by a process of patience and pain, sacrifice and trust. In love*— true Jove at first sigL:—one l:nds i: a little difficult to believe, in spite of what many people say. Of course, two people may on first meeting re cognise in each other a lovable and congenial companion, but to call this treu love is like calling a child edu cated on ics first going to school. The love that lasts is a thing of growth. It must be very often of very gradual growth indeed. 1: must be sunned with smiles, strei:?iho:i»»<i with tenderness, shielded with ante* tion, watered with tears. And this process must go on through the years, for very sensitive, very holy, and in finitely lovely is the perfect flower. This love, though, that only grows in strength and beauty with each pass ing year, has nothing in common with the "chocolate and concert" variety. One might as well compare the row dy music of the ...

ORIGIN OF THE THIMBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

ORIGIN OF THE THIMBLE. The modem* thimble dates from 1GSI, when a, goldsmith, Nicholas Kenchotcn, of Amsterdam, sent one us a birthday present to a lady friend, with the dedication:— "To my frau Van Rensclaer, this little object, which I have invented and executed as a protective covering for her industrious fingers." The Invention proved such a. suc cess that all who saw It tried to ob tain similar ones, and the goldsmith had enough to do to supply them. An Wnglishnnin named John Lotting took one specimen home with him and made many tnousand copies of it. At first thimbles were rather costly, and only well-to-do people could af tord them, but afterwards, when made ot lead and other common metals by machinery, they became very cheap. Their use was a great relief to all who Jiad much sewing to do. The Dutch finger hat—finger hood— became in England the "thumb bell," irorn its bell-like shape. It was orig inally worn on the thumb to parry the thrust of the needle pointing through the ...

THE GREAT MONEY MYSTERY. Latc-lv we haw been hearing the . stories at iirivt hand or sonn.- o; the greatest successes o:' Jhv in the way of money-making, They all re- j semble one another in one ri-snee:— | that of concentration on one :hing at ; a time. j Hut while concentration is respon sible for much modem success, it , leaves a vast area of interests ui:- ] touched, and this area is never cover i ed In after life. j What is there more piteous than the j wealthy man who, after many yvars ; of money-making, has retiree? He cannot go down on "melting days." like the retired candle-maker, because probably his business has passed en tirely out of his hands. Besides, it would be the lat thing hi fashionable ; wife and daughters would desire him ' to do. They are concerned to put as wide a distance as possible between those early days of struggle and their ; present social ease. So the poor man goes in for agriculture without the • smallest real interest in it, or he take? to owning r...

W every article in my stock turned out as uniformly good and regularly up to the standard as Robut tea—Vd be saved a lot of worry I can tell you. Naturally I keep a good many other brands of tea on my shelves, but only one customer here and there ever seems to care to take 'em, whereat, I've hardly ever heard of anyone tcfusing to take " R O B U R."

HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

HOW GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE FORMED. Most of us talk of glaciers and ice bergs familiarly; but how many know how they are formed? "When snow falls In the Polar re cions. or at high altitudes, Mr. A.

But the snow, falling year after year, does not build up great snow mountain, because the lower layers are pressed down 'jv the great weight, the air is squeezed out, and granular ice Is formed. This downward motion is tho essen tial feature in the glacier.
