VALUE OF POLITENESS [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 14 February 1914
VALUE OF POLITENESS Politeness is one's most valuable asset, hoth financially and socially, it costs nothing, and profits much; it makes the one who practises it hapliy is well as the one receiving it. Everyone should show marked politeness to their elders. Especially polite cbhldren are loved and noticed 'by everyone, while no one cares for rude, impolite children. Everyone should practise politeness, as it will do more to better the world than any one thing; in fact, It covers everything, To be a good Christian one has to be polite. A rude, impolite man or woman cannot have much infllence, \Ve all enjoy going into a nice polite home. \\'e love to be associated with such people.

To be a good milker one thing essential is a sweet temper, as one has not to mind if he or she does get a swish in the eye with a long tall. When I got a new cow to milk, the first thing I do is to get to know.tho posltion in which she likes to stand during the process, This done, half the dilliculty Is over. When I ap proach her I always speak and put my stool down quietly, If thrown down it is likely to upset her and cause her to be restless all through, I now clean the udder from all dust; if covered with much, as is often the case when going out to grass, I 'wash thoroughly and dry, Cleanliness at this stage saves many a complaint from Ithe dairy, The heat milker can not get good results from tainted milk. I now take the two front teats logether, and milk very easily for a tinme, and likewise the two hack ones, except in the case of a cow with three tea.ts, then...

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 21 February 1914
DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. A pleasing, and ovidently authentic, story comes from Unitimore about a family servant, says the New York "Nation." Sheo came from Germany twenty seven years ago, has lived with one Baltimoro family over since, end now returns to Germany wi th te tidy enum of nearly £2000, accumulated by steady saving. Particulars as to wages are wanting, but It is evident that she has been having all those years a comfortable home and has beeoon thor onghiy apprecinted in the household in which siheo lived. It hi not improbable that her wvages have been somewhat mnoro liberal than usual, and that she has received pro sents that have helped her to ceonomtiso in the matter of dress.

There are thousands of servants who, without sacrifiing the requirements of comfort or self-respect, and without falling to live up to a very good stand ard of appeairance as to clothing, could...
