AN EDUCATION TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 8 January 1914

AN EDUCATION TEST. A professor once told his pupils that he should consider them educated in the best sense of the word when they could say "Yes" to every one of the questions that he should put to them. Here are the questions: — Has education given you sympathy with all good causes and made you espouse them? Has It made yon public spirited? Has it made you a brother to tin? weak ? Have you learned how to make friends and keep them? Do you know what it is to be a friend yourself? Can you look an honest man or a pure woman in the eye? Do you see anything to love in a little child? Will a lonely dog follow you in tlio street? Can von be high-minded and happy in the mealier drudgeries of life? Vo you think washing dishes and liooin turnips just as compatible with hisii thinking as piano playing or golf? j Are you good for anything to your l self? Can you be happy alone? Can ; you look out on the world and see anything else except £ b. tf,?

THE HOMING INSTINCT OF A CAT. A wonderful instance of the homing Instinct of a cat is described by a correspondent of "Country Life"— [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 8 January 1914

THE HOMING INSTINCT OF A CAT. A wonderful instance of the homing Instinct of a cat is described by a correspondent of "Country Life"— "Our chauffeur's daughter recently came by rail from lier home in Car din. to visit her father at. Ripon. She brought with lier, in a basket, an ordinary black tom cat, which she has had four years, intending to leave him with her father. After the first day in his new home, while his mis tress was still here, the cat disap peared and coukl not be found. In quiries elicited the fact that a black cat had been seen on the railway which passes near the house. Ten days later a letter arrived from Car diff saying that the cat had conic home. "He was in an exhausted state, with all his claws worn off aiul the flesh of his toes abraded. The distance be tween Ripon and Cardiff is fully two hundred and miles. The cat must therefore have travelled nearly thirty miles a day. Physically that is a fairly good feat. But, if he re turned by the way he came, how di&a...

THE WORLD'S GREAT LOVE STORIES. THE TRAGEDY OF GEORGE ELIOT [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 8 January 1914

the world's great .love stories: THE TRAGEDY OF GEORGE ELIOT The life o£ Mary Ann Evans, v. ho, under the pen-name of George Eliot, became one of the most famous ol the Victorian era novelists, is a renin 'li able example of the old, old law that when a woman breaks the moral code of the society in which she lives she has to pay a heavy price, which is j,ion tiiat of a broken heart. George Eliot was by nature conven tional in her temperament. In spite ol her almost masculine strength of mind she had none of the audacity of such a woman as the French novelist, ^.eorge Sand, who broke moral laws as lightly as though they were match sticks, and was not conscience strick en. Our English novelist lived in a country and in an age which was hor rified by the slightest disregard of tlic proprieties. She had been brought up in a strictly religious home, among pious but rather narrow-minded people, and although for a time her intellect revolted from absolute belief in the Christian faith, her...

NATURE'S LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 8 January 1914

NATURE'S LAWS. Nature is a generous mother, bin an I ugly step-mother if one attempts to ; cross her purpose. The great mistake of many farmers is in trying to l>e penny-saving, in buying cheap seed, working -with tools unfit for the pur pose required of them, and mating their animals with inferior sires, against nature's laws. 'There is but one result. Nature goes on with her business and the breeder comes to grief and is ready to sell out. Me simply worked at cross-purposer- with nature. She does not advertise her intentions, nor cry them through the streets, yet she speaks in no uncer tain language to the listening ear. It the breeder works in unison with na ture's laws, he is all-powerful and his success sure.

WHAT THE HORSE THINKS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 8 January 1914

WHAT THE HORSE THINKS. Give a horse a cliance. There is time enough after that to make him go. A horse naturally becomes more or less like its driver. • Most balky horses are made so b> their drivers. Never whip a horse because you are angry. A good teamster gains the confi dence of his team. A horse should be made to fear the whip rather than feel it. Teach a team to pull.- a light .aad right and tliey will pull a heavy load right. Never train a team on a heavy load. • Never scold a team for breaking an cvener. ' , Load light at first arid heavier after wards. Never pull a team when they are out of breath.' Do not allow a team to stop at will, but stop fhem soon afterwards. Short stops and often Is a good rule for resting horses. A horse that will stop when he is told to -will seldom run away. It is all right for your horse to have speed if you never find it out. Move a little yourself to get started, instead of asking your "team to make up lost time.

WOMEN'S WORLD. THE VALUE OF ORDERLINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 8 January 1914

WOMEN'S WORLD. . THE VALUE OF ORDERLINESS. Orderliness always pays in the long run. One cannot always keep the house outwardly straight if it is to be used as most people use" their homes. But there is a truer orderli ness that every good housewife loves and should attain. Most careless housewives know the feeling of dis may when a change in temperature calls for a change in raiment, or when circumstances suddenly demand some little-used article. Then it is that untidy storerooms and boxes empha sise the beauty of having a place for things and everything where it be longs. The first step is in providing the "places." Iiow many pantries are dif ficult to care for and unpleasant in appearance because they are cluttered vviih accumulations of empty fruit jars! Somewhere near the kitchen— m the storeroom or even in the wood shed u there is no other available place—put up a cupboard purposely to receive these jars as they are emp tied.
