To clear himself of the blame he went to the respective messes and said: "If ye foind any tay-leaves in the I soup you'll know it's mint." A New Zealand man has had the same overcoat for thirty-four years. But what is the good of an overcoat that cannot iba "worn out"?
THE LAUGH CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914
THE LAUGH CURE. By Philip Gi'bbs. There have been many notable events recorded in tho newspapers .hiring recent weeks—railway disas ters, strikes, political sensations—but there was one incident which attract ed only a brief notice, although it con tained the secret which nil the philos ophers "of life have been searching for since the beginning of time—the se cret of happiness. It took place in a police court—of all places in the world—and- the se cret was revealed by a young coster monger charged with the theft of a wheelbarrow. This young man did not say a single word in self-defence, I but he had a smile which seemed to I pierce the gloomy atmosphere of the I court like a sudden burst of sun I s-hine. He chuekkd whimsically when evidence was given against him. lie laughed, with a joyous, unaffected laugh, at the very mention of the wheelbarrow, lie was enormously amus3d by tho misfortune which had bef: 'len him, and he was prepared to take any punishment that might be given to h...

The Hint That Didn't. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914
The Hint That Didn't." For ten long but blissful years they had walked along the path of love; but as yet the lovc-sick youth had never mentioned about their getting married. Courtship is very charm ing, but when there does not seem to be altar rails at the end of it girls naturally begin to lose interest in the game. Anyhow, Jane thought it time tha1. the marriage day was fixed, so she threw out a gentle hint to her lover by way of encouraging him. Encour agement, she thought, was all the dear fellow wanted. "Nathaniel," she whispered, coyly, "they're saying we're going to lie married soon." "Aro they, though?" answered the stolid swain. "What a joke it'll be on them when they find out we ain't." A couple of Jews were discussiug Hie award of a railway company over an accident in which both of their wives had been sufferers. "Vot gompensation did yer git, Ikoy?" asked Mo.

S-i-r-r! [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914
S-l-r-rl She was a plump widow with two charming daughters. She had been a "relict" just a year, and was begin ning to wear her "weeds" lightly. All the same, when the new curate called upon her, she sighed: "Ah'. I feel the Iosb o£ my poor, dear husband very much. I never have any appetite for anything now." Tiie curate was all sympathy, and, in the endeavor to cheer her by point ing out what a comfort to her her daughters must 'be, replied: "1 can quite understand that; but you are solaced in " "S-i-r-r!" interrupted the indignant lady. "Allow me to inform you that I am not laced in at all!" "I owe my success chiefly to obser vation, imagination and concentra tion. All my life I have cultivated these three faculties. I am always watching for new ideas wherever I go, and I get most of them when tra velling and at railway stations. When I am on tbe stage I do not merely act a part, I put myself inside it 'by my imagination, and I am "the saftest of the family,' or whatever it may be...
COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914
COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. Come now to the actor's everyday life. If you are a comedian you can't get any sympathy. Ever hear two men discussing the illness of a co median? Jones will say, "I hear Jack Cannot has appendicitis." "You don't say," grins Brown. And then they both burst out laughing. If an actor happens to be a tragedian it iB the other way about. Every happy little episode in his life is referred to with •bated breath. "Did you hear about H. B. Irving winning a thousand at the ponies?" Smith 'will say. "Dear me," Robinson will reply; and they will look as if they had been asked to have a last look at the body before the lid is screwed down.—Fred Niblo on the disadvantages of being an ac tor, in "Theatre Magazine."
WORK THE SOIL NOW. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914
WORK THE SOIL NOW. All orchard soils should be kept well worked during the summer m»uths. It is very essential that these I skould have an abundant supply of moisture during the whole of the growing season. The transpiration from fruit and foliage is considerable at any time but during the hot and windy weather the amount of mois ture which is required by a tree, and which is ultimately transpired from the tree, is very exceptional. Excessive transpiration is often the cause of loss of young trees and of new grafts. They are found t« part with a large amount of moisture, and are not able to retain or obtain suf ficient for their nourislunent; they then very soon wither and die. The ioil p.round these should be kept well stirred, they should also bo giveu a good straw mulch.
THE VALUE OF BEESWAX. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914
______ I THE VALUE* OF BEESWAX. I Beeswax is. gradually going up in price. 'The bar-frame system o£ keep ing bees has largely to answer for tius. Under the old style, to obtain the honey, the corn'bs were destroyed; that meant that there was always a certain quantity of wax to be placed on the market. Under the old regime, beekeepers never required the wax; but, under the new, nearly every grain is carefully husbanded, for the purpose of converting It into founda tion comb. As the new system of 'beekeeping extends the less wax there will be in proportion to put to com mercial use. Nevertheless, the de mand for wax is steadily on the in crease. It, therefore, becomes the question: Will the production of wax pay? There are localities where the honey is of an inferior quality; in fact, almost unsaleable at any price. Is it not worth while in those locali ties to try the experiment of wax pro duction? Bees can foe compelled to produce more wax than they need, and the supply of wax will ...
CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914
CONSIDERATION FOR CHILDREN. ? How much is expected of little chil dren in the way of politeness when none is ever shown them. Their lit tle legs carry them on many an er- j rand for you and never a "Thank you, dear," for encouragement, when the poor little heart longs to hear it, for it is so human in all of us to want approbation. Think of your little ones oftener, mothers. Vou are their all; they turn to you for their wants, and are often ■ disappointed. Some children's souls and hearts are starv ed for want of kindness. Try what a little bribe will do instead of pun ishment; a slice of cake promised for more perseverance, or reward for ef forts to do better. A very small piece of money will make the heart of many a child joyful for a long time. Try to study their natures more. AH chil dren cannot bo managed alike any more than grown persons. And the present of a pet' puppy or a bird—, will make a good child often, when punishment fails.' Love the little ones more, they have their...
DUCK FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914
DUCK FARMING. The following pointers on ducks and duck-breeding should 'be observed:— There have 'been many failures in duck-farntirg, but the essence of the cause is in the man. The thejry that poultry-raising fur nishes a nice occupation tor little boys and girls, old men and women, and in valids, has long since been exploded. There is uo more continuous work of a light nature than poultry-farm ing, but you will get 'Weil repaid for your work. There is a good deal of money in' poultry-raising, but it takes u big lift to get it out. A poultry-raiser will never suffer through want of exercise; it is a good i medicine for health. Ducks waste rapidly when 111 tran sit, but their recuperative powers are equally wonderful. Free range-is unnecessary for duck yards; liott. x 10ft., well grassed, will carry 51) ducks. Duck-yards should ibe laid out so that they can be cultivated. It is a double 'benefit in healthier stock and better results, also rich crops. The habit of scalding ducks or ...
PREPARING THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914
PREPARING THE LAND. Much has been heard during the last year or two as to the value of explo sives tor sub-soiling land intended to be planted with fruit trees and vines, and some authorities have made out, 011 paper, strong ajguments in favor of their use. The lecturer in viticul ture and fruit culture at the Rose worthy College, South Australia, how ever, is doubtful if the work by such means can be performed as effective ly and economically as with teams and the ordinary implements used for the purpose. He considers that by adopting the usual method of sub soiling a more uniform layer of soil will be obtained to a depth ranging from 18 to 24 inches, and the rost of such work may be put down at be tween" £4 and £G per acre. On the other hand, he reckons that to secure equally satisfactory results with ex plosives the cost will work out at. £20 an acre. In a comprehensive article in "The Journal of Agriculture" Mr. Laffer speaks highly of the English ditching plough, which is desig...
DIET FOR INDIGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914
DIET FOR INDIGESTION. ? No treatment In cases of dyspepsia is likely to have much effect unless the diet is very carefully regulated. The great thing is to supply the stom ach with such food as will give it the least amount of work. Roast meat, for example, is preferable to boiled; chicken, game (not too high) and mut ton are more digestible than beef or pork. Vegetables are frequently pro ductive of discomfort, particularly in the form of flatulence. They should either be given up for a time, or taken very sparingly. It will sometimes be found that a fresh salad, dressed with oil and a little vinegar, can be digest ed when cooked vegetables cannot be taken. The latter are best served as a puree. If vegetables have to be given up, fruits, such as baked ap ples, grapes, and oranges should be taken instead. Lemon juice also may be used in water. Bread should be toasted, or taken stale. Pastry, cakes, twice cooked meat, soups, tea and cof fee (except in the strictest modera tion) shoul...
THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914
THE FARM HOME ATTRACTIVE. Farmer's wives and daughters often wonder why their homes do not look as attractive as those of their sisters in town. They say they work twice as hard, and do not havo half the chance to have a good time. One very simple thing adds much to the attrac tiveness of the farm home, and that is the presence of flowers. There is no one who can better af ford to have pretty flowers than the farmer's wife, for she has plenty of land and fertiliser. There are so many pretty hardy plants and shrubs that require little work and that when onco started will bloom every season for a long time. There are also many annual varieties that will furnish cut flowers for the interior of the house, such as sweet peas, nasturtian, pinks, phlox and asters—my favorites. It is a pleasure to give away flowers to the sick, to carry them to tho altar of the little church, and, in fact, it seems as if they are never out of place. There is on class of people who can havo as good a time wi...
NEWSPAPER KINGS. Men Who Fashion History. Struggle for Supremacy. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914
NEWSPAPER KINGS. Men Who Fashion History. Struggle for Supremacy. Alfred Harmswo.'tli (now Lord NorthcliiTe), who first devised per sonal journalism in tabloid form through the medium of "Answers," is, after 20 years, the most influential J private public man in the three King- i doms. Some people are apt to bolt with the idea that success commands success, and that once a man has arrived lie can sit down serenely and lortune comes to him cap in hand. I happen to know that there is no harder worked man in England than Lord NorthcliiTe. Like the aged Em peror of Austria, lie is dressed at 5 a.m., and ready to digest every paper that is printed in London and the provinces. Before a majority of his assistants in the many oflices which he commands have had their break fast he calls them up on the telephone to discuss with them what shall be the best story for the following day. "He is a hard taskmaster, but the ■most stimulating man I know," one ot his young lions told mo recently. Neve...
