SNAPPISHNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
SNAPPISH NESS. Married couples that coo harmon iously as ring-doves .in public are sometimes mere snapping turtles be niSdltfe8 JXTJifg .Ml^8-^gdlg»accor^^^^ ing to her own account. as a zephyr in society, but she was a white squall in a night-gown when she . had 'turned in.' Her lectures were all 'snap,' and it is surmised that the ?wide celebrity they acquired when printed was mainly attributable to the force and accuracy with which they illustrated the experience of thou sands of married men. Unfortunately for the peace of fami lies, all hands are not Caudles. Some of the persecuted — perhaps the major ity of them — instead of taking refuge in assumed deafness, retort violently, and hence domestic tempests, fierce and frequent. This is bad. A mild answer turneth away wrath, and abso lute silence generally cools, if it does not extinguish, it. We suggest the former as the best remedy. Husbands should be considerate. Their help meets have much to try their tem- ? pers. The home dep...
FEDERAL ELECTIONS. MR McWILLIAMS AT HUONVILLE. ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
FEDERAL ELEC TIONS. , ' MR McWILLIAMS AT HUONVILLE. ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING. ? Mr McV/illiams addressed the electors at Huonville on Thursday night. There was a record attendance, more than half the audience being ladies, and tho meet ing was an unusually enthusiastic one. Mr V, Skinner was elected chairman, and he spoke in eulogistic terms of the candidate, and of the good work he had done for Tasmania, and particularly for the Huon, with which he had all his life been so closely identified. It was ad mitted by all parties that Mr McWil liams was the best representative Tas mania had ever sent to the Federal Par liament — (applause) — and he was sure they were all determined to re-elect him.

REMEMBER TO COMMEND. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
REMEMBER TO COMMEND. 'I was so afraid you weren't going to notice,' said a shy little girl, on being commended for greater profi— ~ ciency in the management of that baf fling instrument, the fork, and her sigh of relief and pleasure went straight to her mother'6 heart. The art of 'justly mingling praise and blame' is a difficult one to learh, and delicate to practise, and this is a busy world for mothers. The chil dren's little faults of habit and man ner attract attention easily enough, and they are reprimanded with the sharpness that comes of exasperated nerves. But by the time patient, child ish effort has overcome them, they are forgotten by the rest of the house hold, and the expected praise is not given. These things ought not so to be.
Only the Runner Up. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
Only the Runner Up. 'The best man thought he'd take a look round and see that everything was running as a fastidious ..bride would wish it, and up in the room where the presents were displayed, alone and unhappy-looking, he came upon a youth, seemingly ready, like the wedding guest of the poet, to 'beat his breast.' He was wandering about, looking at silver and cut-glass without seeing them, and the best | man hardly knew how to approach him. 'Er — have you kissed the bride?' he asked, at last. And the answer told far more than its two meagre words might have been expected to. It was: 'Not late ly.'
Too Much of a Dog. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
Too Much of a Dog. Mrs. Herlihy looked with marked disfavor on the mongrel dog which her husband brought home one night, say ing he had met an old friend, who gave him the animal 'as a prisent.' ' 'What kind of a dog is he?' demand ed Mrs. Herlihy. 'Me friend didn't say,' responded Mr. Herlihy, vaguely. ' 'Tis well, you know, Celia, you can't be axin'^ll sorts o' quistions whin 'tis a prisent you're, getting. But he said the dog was a grand watchdog and a great fighter.' . Just at that point in the conversa tion, which took place at the door of. the Herlihy residence, with Mrs. Her lihy standing guard before the en trance, a small black-and-tan terrier - uaaueu uy tut: jluiu auu mauc «. yapping salute to the lately-acquired treasure. To Mr. Herlihy's chagrin, his dog gave one dismayed yelp and fled — disappearing down a neighboring alley. ' ? 'He may be a great fighter,' said Mrs. Herlihy, in a withering tone, 'but he's a' poor judge o' dogs, that new wan o' yures.'
A Millionaire's Wooing. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
A Millionaire's Wooing, j The door of the state room swung sharply back on its hinges, then closed. Its sound 'caused the girl's heart to thrum guiltily beneath her bosom, as cowering with her back up against an opened safe Daphne Langford realised that for her there could be no es cape. It would now only be but a matter of seconds before a switched-on elec tric light discovered her with its searching glare. 'The open iron door against which she rested for support would convict her 'on sight. An instinct of self-preservation made her swiftly ciose it. The move ment, abruptly silent, synchronised with a betraying glare of electricity. Man and girl faced each other— the one ashen with the mark of detected guilt stamped clearly on every lovely feature;' the other allowing a covert smile of mockery to curl the corners of his sternly-moulded lips. The re cognition proved mutual. It was, however, left for the man to voice it. 'Miss Langford, I had never ex pected to see you here to-night....

ABOUT PLANT FOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
ABOUT- PLANT FOODS. By 'Alfalfa.' Every farmer should have a fair amount of knowledge of plant food, and of what it consists. More skill is required in the proper feeding of plants than in the feeding of live stock. Landholders usually . possess more or less knowledge of the latter, but as regards the feeding of plants the majority are groping in the dark. What is Plant Food? One .writer says that anything is food which, when taken into a living being, is capable of sustaining or nourishing it. Plant food, then,, is any element, whether derived from the soil or some other source, that will, when taken into the plant, nour ish, sustain, and promote its growth ana assist it in performing its natu ral functions. While the above de fines plant food it does not tell us what the elements are and the part the farmer takes in providing those elements — these two questions we will attempt to answer in the remainder of this article. 'While plants are living beings, they differ greatly from th...
SUCCESSFUL CARE OF SOW AND LITTER. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
SUCCESSFUL CARE OF SOW AND LITTER. A writer in the 'American Swine herd' gives his views on this subject as follow:— . Upon visiting several of the most prominent hetds of the country whose proprietors have become noted for their skill and good judgment, the writer has observed that all -of them . have achieved their success by prac tically the same route; first, by con fining their breeding operations to good blood and careful management; and, secondly, by associating sound business principles with their breed ing and. feeding operations. The writer iias observed, too, that the old veteran breeders, whose names go down in history as the founders and improvers of the breeds, are not the men to be. carried away by fads and fancies; neither do they rely wholly on the high' prices of their animals to establish their popularity. The super iority of their animals must be proven. We 'would conclude, then, that for ( the successful handling of the sow. litter from farrowing-time to weaning...
CURIOUS BEQUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 19 March 1910
10 US BEQU ESTS. Nothing reveals the characters of people more than the gifts and be quests they make. Here are two in stances of bequests which must have heaped coals- of fire upon the heads of the recipients: — When bleeding a French lady, a sur geon had used his ? lancet so clumsily that he cut an artery instead of a vein, in consequence of which the lady succumbed. On her death-bed she, with charming humanity and irony, made a. will, bequeathing the operator a life annuity of 800 livres, on condition 'that he never again bled anybody so-'long as he lived.'' A similar story is told of a Polish princess, who 'lost her life in the same way. In her will, made in extremis, there was the following' clause: 'Con- vinced of the injury that my unfor tunate accident will occasion to the unhappy surgeon who is the cause of my death, I bequeath to him a life annuity of 200 ducats, secured by my estate, and forgive his mistake from my heart. I wish this may indemnify him for the discredit wh...

OBITUARY. V - MR JOHN WOOLLEY. There passed away at Upper Huon on Thursday, an old and highly respocted resident of the Huon, in the person of Mr John Woolley . The deceased had at tained the ripe old-age of 82 years, and was a native of the Huon. His father first settled at a point now known as Matchins, where he commenced a saw milling business. He, in common with a great many other Australian's was lured to Victoria by the gold boom. in 1851, and was fairly successful there. After an absence of abont 12 months he returned to Tasmania, and later married. He, like his father, was one of the pioneers of the timber industry, engaging in sawmilling in different parts of the Huon, first at Wooley's Hill, and finally at his late place of residence — the Upper Huon. He cut the timber with which many of our older river ketches were constructed. His wife, and eleven of a family of thirteen — seven sons and four daughters — survive him. The funeral will take place at the Upper Huon this aft...
