The Half Holiday. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

The. Half Holiday. To the Editor. Sir,—One or two-- letters hare appeared recently in the " Mail " advocatiug a step backwards, viz., the ieturn to a prehistoric day for a half-holiday ; one day during the week, other than Saturday. At a recent ineeting of the Suopkeepers there' was, f believe,, but one who wished to rot urn to the obsolete' iiali'-holiday hi the \vt-ek. •Again, I hare been personally assured by a leading shop-k;eper that he does just as much business as formerly, but that it is . distributed over the week. Further, all re cent legislation tends to show that Satur day, must become the universal half-holiday and compulsory sooner or later. There is another matter to be pointed out. Any of the outlying districts—Eurobin, Bar widgee, Buffalo River, etc—are visited by employers for orders, which some of the storekeepers send to the rery door. Apart from this, there' is the humane aspect to consider. Saturday is welcomed by em ployer and employee alike as the natural" ha...

A LORD'S MARKETGARDEN TEN-HOUR DAY. - Lord Hyde, the son and heir of the Earl of Claredon, who emigrated to Canada with his wife and family eighteen months ago, partly owing to "Lloyd Georgeism," arrived here in the White Star liner Olympic to-day, on a brief visit to England (says the Ply mouth correspondent of the "Daily Ex press," November 22). In an interview I had with him be fore he .disembarked, Lord Hyde sum marised his experiences of life in a new country, as well as his impressions of the "Golden Dominion," and his future aims.

SELF-CONFIDENCE. Chats With the Ambitious—And Others. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

SELF-CONFIDENCE. . Chats With the Ambitious—And Others. By Orison Swett Harden. "Peddle 'em as though they were ap ples," said an editor to a trembling, sentimental girl who offered , him her manuscript with the air of a convict about to receive* the death sentence. "If one man does not v.ant your apples another will. Don't be afraid of me or anybody else." Carry yourself with a self-confident air, as though you really believed in yourself, and you will not only inspire others with a belief in your ability, but you will also come to believe in your self. A keen observer can pick out a suc cessful man on the street by the way he carries himself. If he is a leader, every step, every movement indicates it; there is assurance in his hearing; he walks as if he were master of him self, as if he believed in his ability t-o do things, to bring about results.- His self-confident air is an index of the success he has attained. Men and women who succeed in their undertakings are those who get ...

THE PRICE OF FEAR AND HATE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

THE PRICE. OJr. FEAR AND HATE. Fear is the rock on which -we split, :and hate is the shoal on'-which many a bark is stranded. When we are fearful the judgment is as unreliable as the compass of a ship whose hold is full of iron ore. When we hate we have unshipped the rudder. And if we stop to meditate on what the gossips say of us, we have allowed a hawser to befoul the screw. Keep your mind on the great and splendid things you would like to do, and, then, as the days go gliding by, you will find yourself unconsciously seizing dpon the opportunities that are .re quired for the fulfillment of your de sire, just as the coral insect takes from the running tide the elements that it If we continued we get the habit, that is, we do the thing without think ing, just as a matter of course.

FRUGALITY OVERDONE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

FRUGALITY OVERDONE. Old Jasper Grim could never see The dark cloud's silver lining; In fact, he always seemed to be Complaining and repining. He always looked for rainy days When fair mild winds were blowing: He hunted out the lonely ways In which no crowds were going. There was no joy for Jasper Grim, No glad anticipation, The world, indeed, appeared to him A place of tribulation.. He pinched and saved and skimped and so His fortune kej>t on gaining; He thought of wild winds. that would blow, And days when 'twould be raining. He's now reposing in his tomb, A monument they've bought him, But I would not have borne his gloom For all his money got him. He was a young man—a candidate for an agricultural constituency—and he was sketching in glowing colors to the audience of rural voters the happy life the laborer would lead under an administration of the propagation of sweetness and light. "We have not yet three acres and a cow, but it will come. The promised sanatorias are still for...

PROPER FERTILISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

PROPER FERTILISATION. The greatest economic and social problem ever presented to man is tlie proper fertilisation of the soil. Neces sities are multiplying beyond the dreams of those -who lived a century ago. The consumption of cei'eals is ex tending, and is becoming a prominent part in the feeding of the peoples of all countries. The tilling of the soil, from being an incidental employment »)f eke-out existence, has become the reliance of all civilised and half-civi lised people; and an industrial era has been born which involves entire trans formation of old methods Thus has the problem developed. The intensive cultivation of the soil lias be come a necessity, and to enable this system to be prolonged, it has equally become a necessity to restore to the soil the plant food taken from it. All itillers of the soil will have to feed their stock. Many of them do so now, but many make a wry face .when they have to pay for their supplies, of fer tilisers, and in bad times the .first ex ...

" HaJf the Crime due to Drink." " If anyone wanted to be con verted to the cause of temperance I should like to make him a judge, because I am certain that when he had been a judge for a few months he would find out practically how much of the crime in this country is due to intemperance," says Mr Jus tice Bailhaiche. He had been a judge for only just, over a year, added his lordship, but' he. thought he was safe in saying that. two thirds' of the crimes into which violence entered were directly trace able to drink, and fully one halt" of all the cases of crime which he had tried since he had been,-..on the bench were directly or indirectly due to drink.. ^ " I think drink is one of the most, serious hindrances to human pro gress—I am not sure it is not . the greatest hindrance," qdded his lord ship.

NEGLECT OF LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 29 January 1914

NEGLECT OF LUCERNE. The value of lucerne as a commercial crop appears to be little known on the average North Coast farm. When one considers the immense area of rich al luvial lands on the northern rivers that are so admirably adapted to the suc cessful growth of this crop, and the enormous quantities of valuable rich fodder that this perennial is capable of producing, it is really surprising why so few farmers make use of it. There is no doubt that the splendid an nual rainfall ensures practically suffi cient feed for general farm purposes from the ordinal y pastures, but every year experience teaches the necessity of doing a little more than to simply rely upon the natural herbage. The past winter has been a severe one to many dairymen. The heavy rains and floods of last autumn prevented thp usual areas of green feed being plant ed for winter and early spring ne<=ds, and the effect of this upon farms that are well or even overstocked must be apparent to anyone familiar ...
