BE JUST TO THE LITTLE ONES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 April 1914
BE JUST TO THE LITTLE ONES. Children are very just little souls and they always know when ■ they have been unfairly treated It a chilc once gets into his head the notion that mother either scolds or kisses him according to her own state of mind at the moment, he \yill never afterwards respect her authority. All that he will do is to keep out of the way when she seems "cross," or brag and lib alternately about his doings, m a way that is almost hound to ruin his character. But if he knows that mother is always fair to him, he will respect and love her, and try to please her, so that naughtiness and punish ment become the exception rather than the rule in the house over which hooks as will give her the most use she rules so wisely and iirmly.

Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 April 1914
Household Hints. Ill washing paint, always remember to wet the under-part first, so, -when washing the upper, any v ->r running down will leave no streaky marks. Save all the orange peel you have.

This will remove the rust, and then you may polish your irons just as usual.
