Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 February 1914

AiARDENER WANTED QUALIFICATION CONSIDIERED A few days ago I saw a very attrac tive advertisenment in "The Church 'Times," and I reproduce it so that my readers may join in the wild rush that is sure to follow so tempting an offer (writes S.L.H., in "The Daily News") W ANTED, GARDENER, gentleman by A birth tand education. No salary, Bourd and lodging in return. Must do own room. iteady. Ago under 30. Excellent references, In order to prevent disappoint I think the advertiser should explain clearly all that is meant by the phrase "gentle man by birth and education," as some altplicants for this remarkably good thing might be able to pass the test in regard to gentle birth and then fail owing to insuficlcent education, On the other hand, a man might have know ledge and skill in all learning and wis dom, and yet be merely the deplorable product of the lower middle-classes. Let us, therefore, try to discover the meaning of the phrase "a gentleman by birth." Selden, in his "Titles of Hono...

THE LUCKY SNEEZE KING OF SOTTO VOCE [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 February 1914

THE LUCKY SNEEZE KING OF SO'TTO VOCI (From "The Westminster Gazette") A king of Sutto Voco once had the misfortune to offend a wizard of his acquaintance, with the result that he was visited with the Curse of the Six Categories. This was quite as big a thing as it looks, for it meant that six attempts would be made upon the king's person by a specially chosen demon. At the first atempt the king would lose his right hand; at the sec ond, lls arm; third, his left hand; fourth, his left arm; fifth, his right leg; and last, his left leg, The king, having had some experi ence of wizards and their pet curses knew that his only chance was to make the demob-in-n-charge aim his shafts crookedly. This can done by a smart mortal, but it is necessary to de cide upon a plan quickly, for demons are. always very keen to begin their work. They are, however, not al lowed to aim until they have sent a letter to their intended victims; that is one of the laws relating to curses which you will find in ...

Maria Montessori, who has given her name to the new system for educating children, is at present in America (says "The Westminster Gazetteo" of January 2), She is no doubt pleased to find that there are nearly one hundred schools that have adopted the Montessori method In the United States, and that many pupil teachers have learnt her system. She lays particular stress on the physictl improvement that comes from her Iw? thod. Speaking of the Casa del Bum blnl at Home, sile says:-"The most marvellous discovery was the physical improvement of these little children. NOw. we never served food in the school. The little ones, all of whom live in their own homes, have half an hour's recess for luncheon, which they take at home, Not a single child in the school was given medicine; there vwas no change of diet, but in almost every case a new vigor and health was shown by blood supply, weight, and stature,.

ARCTIC PERILS MISSING EXPEDITION. Anxiety for the safety of Captaln Bartlett and his party, who are adrift in the Polar pack lee, separated from Ifr Stefansson, who Is on the mnainland, is greatly stimulated because it Is known by his intimates that Bartlett's ship, the Karluk, was worn out and condemned as a whaler before the ex pedltion started (says the New York correspondent of "The Daily Tele graph," December 11). This statement will be questioned probably, but I have seen a letter to-day penned by Cap tain Bartlett himself, and never hither to published, severely indicting the old craft, and gravely questioning her lit ness for the work in hapd. Writing from Nome, Alaska, to "The Daily Telegraph's" Informant at Nov York, Captain Bartlett, who is a Britlsh subject, and was captain for Peary on his successful trip to the North Pole, says: "I only wish we had tlhe Itoosevelt (Peary's old ship).

CIGARETTE SMOKING A MENTAL DRUG. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 28 February 1914

CIGARETTE SMOKINi A MENTAL DRUG. A few days ago I was having an argument, in which the question of the cigarette habit arose. For a while the pleasures and harm of such smokldng were discussed, and then one said, "Well, my cigarettes are a great coin fort to me. I cannot do anything with out them." And another, an eminent inedlcal lman, answered, "Yes, they are a mild drug. Probably they will do you but little harnm; but they translate action into thoughts of action, and thoughts of action into dreaming!" His words remained in my hleud and refused to be ousted. And now, as I sit down to write this, they have r: turned to mle with greater force and clearer import than ever. So many of us are mental eigaretto Ilelids! Do you understand what I mean? Not that we actually smoke cigarettes, but that so many practise somlo method or anothter of "translat Ing action into thoughts of ctiiion, and thoughts of action into dreams," anid of finding it comfort-a drugged, un healthy coinfort-in so...

NORTIUCOTE FOOTBALL CLUB. MEETING BY REFORM PARTY. A meeting, convened by Cr. A. McDon ell and Messrs. W. H. Smith and F. Swale, for the purpose of discussing the need for reform in connection with the local football club, was held at the Crox ton reserve on Wednesday evening. There being an attendance of about 200. Cr. McDonell, who presided, said he did not think many would question the need of reform in connection with the Northcote Football Club. He had been associated with the game in Northcote for upwards of 12 years and could say there was more enthusiasm shown in the past with their junior clubs than with the present senior one. This showed there must be something wrong some where. The members must decide between themselves as to the best means of bettering the sport. With a popula tion of over 20,000 Northcote should surely be able to muster more than 200 financial members for their senior foot ball club. If they dlid not bestir them selves there was a probability of losing...

HAPHAZARD POULTRY BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 March 1914

HAPHAZARD FOULTRY BREEDING. Th' haplhazard method of breed. lng Is still In vogue on many farms, The eggs selected for hatchiig are chosen because they are of good size, shape and color, irrespective of whether they are laid by the best or worst layers, In the present state of farming one cannot afford to adopt loose methods, If the farmer gave as much thought to poultry breeding as he does to his farm crop lie would invariably fnd his pullets great pro. fit-makers. On many 'arms the chick. ens are reared for the sake of the pullets; cockerels are a secondary consideration, although usually equal to the pullets as regards numbers. 'The farmer wants eggs-plenty of them--and ivhen eggs are dearest, Hlie must hatch so that the pullets lay right through the winter; they can afford to have a rest in summer and will come again in autumn, a time of higher prices. Now, we cannot ohb lain all of these advantages by hatch mng haphazard and from a flock of nimogrels. 'lThe faIrmer must have a ...

FARM IMPLEMENTS, ' On getting a new Implement always see that the bearings are working smoothly', and that they are kept well oiled, as if once allowed to run hot they will not work so well after wards, and will probably wear quick er. All repairs required should be put in hand as soon as possible after the season's work Is finished, so that the implement Is ready for use when next required. If put aside some little de tail that requires attention Is prob. ably forgotten, and loss of time re sults. The best time to got the drill put In order Is immediately the grain. sowing is finished.
