CONVENIENCES IN FARM HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 8 January 1914

CONVENIENCES IN FARM. HOMES. One of tlie strongest objections to country life by those who live in cities iss that the conveniences, of the farm home are few, and that, the work of the .housewife is made a much greater hardship than it is iii the cities. This is, as a rule, the case. The ordinary -farm home has not.f'.e labor-lighten ing improvements of the city home. There is no plumbings in the house by which the luxury of the 'bathroom can be had, no running :water, no sew age system, heating is done by stoves instead of furnaces, and the whole plan of tlie house is to increase • the steps of the good housewife rather • than to lessen them. Now, . this is not as it should be. The farmer and his wife should hava. as many of the luxuries of life as may be pbssible, and it is' possible to ar-. range the house of the farm so that many of the: necessities, of the city house may 'be had. Recently equipped . farm homes are usually, better equip ped than are those of several years ago. T...

An Open-air Entertainment. , ~ '*■ I The open-air fete under the aus- j pices of the ladies of St Paul's i Church of England, Myrtleford, is i one of the most pleasing ways of | spending New Year's Eve, and this i year's was probably the most enjoy able yet held. The night was de lightfully line and favorable for open-air singing and music, and the programme was the best submitted to a local audience fc r some time. The plantation items, by a compauy consisting of Mesdames Sutton and ; Gunion, Messrs F. Whitbourn and Foster Lowerson, with Mrs F. Whitbourn st the organ, were a pleasing innovation. During the short intervals between the items I good business was done by the j ladies who dispensed ice creams, cool drinks, and raspberries and j cream, for which there was a great demand and which was greatly ap preciated. The takings amounted to something over ^9- Special mention should be made of ^ the splendid work- put in by Mrs aud Dr Sutton, and also Mrs Lewis and her assistants, Mi...

THE VALUE OF COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 8 January 1914

THE VALUE OF COURAGE. . A; great deal of talent is lost in the world for the. -want of ,a little courage. Every day sends to their graves a num ber of obscure men who have only; re mained in obscurity because of tlieir timidity, which has prevented 'them from making a first effort, and who, if they could have been induced to begin, would in all probability have gone great lengths in the career of fame. The fact is that, to do anything in this world worth doing, we must not stand shivering and thinking of the cold .and danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can. It will npt do to be perpetually calculating risks and- adjusting nice chanced it did well before the Flood, when a man could, consult his friends upon ah' In tended publication for 150 years, and .then live to see his success afterwai*ds, but at present a man waits, and doubts and consults .his brother and- his par ticular friends, till one fine day- he 'finds that he is sixty years of age; that , he has. los...

PRUNING CITRUS TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 8 January 1914

PRUNING CITRUS TREES. Many people differ considerably in their opinions as to tlie proper way in I " which citrus trees should be pruned.) The majoi'ity persist in the belief that these trees require only to be thinned out and have the dead wood removed. Much depends upon the construction placed upon such statements. If, as is generally, the case, such an expres sion conveys the idea of merely cut ting out the dead wood and thinning parts of the tree where the foliage is very dense, it does not go far enough. An orange tree bears the greater part of its crop on the outside branches, and . while plenty of light and \air are needed in the interior of the trees, this does not imply a neces sity for hollowing" it out, so as to leaves, the main inside • branches de void ■ of foliage. Nevertheless, it is necessary that much of the. inside5* growth should be removed, so that what is allowed to x*emain will -be well spaced and well lighted, other ' wise it will become starved *md barren,' m...

TRUE ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 8 January 1914

-TRUE ECONOMY. 1 .... . -Vt -l—i. Economy and fefeonomise 1 are ■ two much-used wofds;:but sometimes, we fear, they are falsely applied.

Diplomacy. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 8 January 1914

Diplomacy. Sunday "passed. Tuesday .rolled around, and still his tall form,did not loom in the vestibule when the cuckoo [clock was sounding eight. Thursday he came, and the beautiful girl , was burning with wrath. 9 "So this is the way you neglect me," she hissed. "What have you . to .say for yourself? Why didn't you come?" "I couldn't," faltered the young man. "I had the dyspepsia, and the doctor told me not to, come." "What! The doctor told you not to come to see me because you had dyspepsia?" "Well, he told me to keep away from gll sweets." The next moment she had him .seat ed on the couch telling him he was the nicest young man in the world.. What kills men is discouragement. It is sitting down under trouble that, destroys them; it is standing up and mocking trouble that enables them to go through it without harm.
