The Worst of Education. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 5 March 1914

The Worst of Education. When the new and the old school meet there is likely to be a clash of opinions, and so Miller Brown found the other day when Farmer Jackson sent bis young son across to the mill with a sack of wheat which he wished ground into meal. Like the miller, the mill was of the old, leisurely school, and only a tiny stream of meal trickled out. The young man waxed impatient "What a mill!" he said, "with scorn. "Why, I could eat the meal quicker than this ramshackle old concern of yours can grind it!" "Ay," said Miller Brown; "but how long couldst keep it up, lad?" "Till I starved!" was the trenchant answer. And when Miller Brown had puzzled out the inwardness of the remark, he concluded that lads nowadays were "gettin" a power too sharp wl' their tongues."
