PLAYING THE MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914
PLAYING THE MAN. Whether -we regard life as a iane leading to a dead wall—a mere bag's end, as the French would say—or whether we think of it as a vestibule or gymnasium, where we wait our turn, and prepare our faculties for some more noble destiny; whether we thunder in a pulpit, or pule in little atheistic p.oetry-foooks about its vanity and brevity; whether we look justly for years of health and vigor, or are about to mount into a bath eliair, as a step towards the hearse; in each and all df these views and situations there is but one cnclusion possible; that, a man should stop his ears .against paralysing terror, and run the race that is set before him with a single mind,— -R. L. Steveuson.

A BUSINESS MAN'S CREED. A business man's creed has been formulated in which it is set out:— to oase my expectations of reward on a solid foundation of service ren dered; to be willing to pay the price of success in honest effort. To look upon iny work as opportunity, to be seized with joy and made the most of, and not as painful drudgery to be re luctantly endured. within 'myself, in my own brain, my own ambition, my own courage and determination. To expect difficulties, and force J my way through them;, to turn hard experience into capital for future struggles. To keep my future unmortgaged with de'bt; to" save money as well as earn it; to cut out expensive amuse ments until I can afford them; to steer clear of dissipation and guard my health and body and peace of mind as my most precious stock-in trade. Finiilly, to take a good grip on the joy of life; to 'play the game lilie a gentleman; to fight against nothing so hard as my own weaknesses, and to endeavor to grow In business ca...
PURCHASING EWES. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914
PURCHASING EWES. Of merino ewes the farmer has many to clioose from. The small man is always at a disadvantage in purchasing small lots. The pastoral ist prefers to sell in large drafts. Of cross-bred ewes the supply is limited. A few breeders have considered it advisable to cater for this trade, but so far the supply is not equal to the demand. This means, that such ewes are commanding high prices. Of comeback ewes there iB also a limit ed supply. Of nondescripts there are far too many, and these should foe strenuously avoided. The ewes pur chased should be all of one class, and preferably of one age and ear mark. Small mixed lots from dealers or saleyards always prove unsatis factory, as the wool from Guch is so mixed as to command but the low • est prices, and the progeny lacks that uniformity so necessary to command the best figures under the hammer.
LICK FOR SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914
LICK FOR SHEEP. Sheep should. have access to a lick of salt, ns it aids the assimila tion of food, anil has a salutary effect upon many parasites. A good lick Is made of:—101b. Liverpool salt, 41b. sulphate of iron, and 51b. of lime. The iron is a good blood tonic. The lime may make good auy deficiency of that material in the pastures, and is often very beneficial to young growing sheep. Such a lick prevents that unnatural appetite in sheep which sometimes takes the form of gating dried poisoned rabbits and other decaying animal tissues. It should 'he covered from the rains. An excess of salt may interfere with nu trition by causing slieop to drink too much water, which may lead to a waste of the albumcnoids of the feed.
PATIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914
PATIENCE. Patience wllli one's Imperfec tions, 'in the sense of not becoming so discouraged as to give up trying, is virtue. If one 'will look at it so, new days are given us ifor new lives. It is not what we were yesterday, after all, that concerns us; it is what we are now in thought and deed. To tliiivk we arc so bad it is not worth trying any more is .as foolish as to act, as some do, as if we needed not to be any better. Be patient towards your friends. Some men are slow to see In--good things. They -want to do right, but it takes them a good while to deter mine 'What is required of them. Every member of ,the party of Christ is not an eye. To get out of patience with those dull ones will not help them or you. Give them time and they will do their duty. . We all have our in flrmiWes.. Let us bear with each other. * To toe patient you must have pa tience. The stream cannot flow if the fountain is dry. The fruit will not grow without the tree.

WOMAN'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914
WOMAN'S WORK. The average husband seldom gets both himself anil hiB wile into cor rect perspective; lie usually comes out a larger than life size; aiul .his wife a little smaller. It is this that makes him believo that he is an abso tuie essential in any circumstanco that concerns his wlte. It is the pro tective instinct overdone. A sparate holiday is a tiling every wifu dreams about, ibut she refrains ifrom mentioning it, because—and this is the secret—she docs not think her husband has common-sense enough not to feel Injured at the pro posal. Many a husband seems to think that sho can, on occasion, be her own pilot. It rather twinges Ms dignity to think of her acting entire ly 011 her awn initiative. Eveu the most affectionate husband is often something of a despot in home life. He chokcs her self-expression by thinking for her, planning for her, and deciding for her. Can you wonder, then, that she should dream dreams of 'being en tirely herself ;for a fortnight or a month? To thi...

Rather Muddled How great questions will find tholr way Into the most sequestered nooks was forcibly 'brought homo recently during a week-end In a Warwick shire village. The local Liberal Asso ciation was in great distress at the loss of a former follower, the bailiff of the squire, but It found solace In the reason lie gave for his defection. "I'm in .favor of this 'ere 'Traflic' Reform," he said, "for I've seen thorn three motors tearing along across the common at slch a pace .thai a 'body's, lil'o ain't safe when lie tries to cross' the road. Talk of your Free Trade— gimmo 'Traffic' Roform." Tho Prodigal Son: Well, dad, I'm back again. Are you going to kill the fatted calf? Unsympathetic Father: No, I will not kill you. But I'll put you to work &lt;iud train some of the fat off you.
DOES SHEARING LAMBS PAY? [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914
DOES SHEARING LAMBS PAY? The keen demand which lias pre . railed all througgh the wool season, and, as a matter of Tact, for several seasons past, for lambs' wool, and the excellent prices which rule for this description, should be a conclu sive answer to the question so often asked: Does it pay to shear lambs? It certainly does pay, and. the trade would readily absorb a much larger quantity of lamlbs' wool 'were It available. As a matter of fact, wool users are grumbling over thb falling off In the volume of this description, which is no doubt attributed to the high shearing rates. High aB shear ing rates and labor costs are, how ever, it pays to shear lambs, and take reasonable caro in presenting it to buyers. It should be classed, where there Is a fair-sized lot, in firsts, sec onds and thirds. This is no very dif ficult matter" the main consideration in-soiling being length and condition. A fair length' is desirable. Short lambs' wool lias 'been soiling with littlo irregularity ...

CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914
CHAPTER XII. Queenie was alone in her bedroom. The morrow was her wedding-day. She was to ibe married in her travelling gown, and it lay outspread on her Tjed. A large box, branded Voile and Co., contained her hat. Two large travel ling trunks occupied further space. The family were gathered together at Soutlibourne. Mr. Gordon Price and Philip were staying at an hotel hard by, and Beryl, who seemed affected with a chronic redness of her eyelids, had obtained a room in the same house as her mother and. Queenie. Michael Thome was bearing all ex penses—it was his. party—though the fact was transparently glazed over by the fiction that Mr. Price had been recently successful in business opera- I tious in the city. Early that afternoon Michael Tliorne, accompanied by the friend who was to figure as best man, had motored down from London. Qneenie was alone in her bedroom, though the rest of the family were gathered together , in Mrs. Price's pleasant sitting-room overlooking the sea. Mrs....

As ho had to visit a number of jewellers In the town, he called on one of them, who was till then his best customer, a certain M.

The jeweller statod that he gave up tlio articles, but soon afterwards ho a 1 legod that ho had doubts, and tele phoned to M. Monnot, to...
BREEDING FOR UNIFORMITY. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914
BREEDING FOR UNIFORMITY. Uniform'ty of both wool and pro geny cannot be neglected by the far mer desirous of getting the beat re sults. No mattr how careful he may be In Ills original purchases, ho will soon have need to cull for himself, without, purchasing culls, in the first Instance. Whether .merinos, come backs, or cross-breds are to ^e pur chaser must be decided according to ! the condition of the market and char acter of the country. A farmer can not neglect the question of wool up on his breeders, and they should be selected on account of their quality in this respect, in conjunction with the constitution, frame, 'freedom from disease, and other desirable qualities. From a wool point of view, the merino and comeback are the best. From the point of prolificness the cross-hred is easily first. The cross breils also make better mothers, giv ing more milk than the merino; the comebacks are probably intermedi ate in this respect. Ewes with any sign of disease should be rejected, ...

These are ICathleon Shipton, aged six weeks, and Rose Bennett, aged seven months. They are the two babies who have been chosen to replace the doll which until recently was used in the Single gate Council Girls' School for—the in struction of the scholars in domestic acom plishments. The doll had been almost worn out by its long course of dressing and un dressing and washing and putting to •sleep. When it was proposed to sub stitute infants the danger to them was pointed out, but the girls of the school maintain that the risks were exagger ated. Tho doll, it is stated, was never dropped in all its existenco, and under the eyes of their experienced teachers the girls handle the human substitutes as carefully.
