TEACHING NEATNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 24 February 1914
TEACHING MEATNESS. There is no mother who does not want her childron to bo neat and ord erly, but many mothers do not realise, or do not think, how- early tho child ren can rcccivo their first training along theso lines. Children aro so decidedly creatures of habit that a little help and encouragement on tho moth er's part, a littlo patienco and a little of her busy tlmo now, will savo her any, amount of trouble later. Baby, when fifteen months old, understood perfectly tho expressions - "Piok it up," 'Tut it back," "Let's put your toys awav," and willingly did any of theso things.. Children lovo to. bo doing something, and aro iust as pleased to carry a thing back whero it camo from as to tako it in tho first place. Wo read occasionally of somo intel lectual prodigy that learns at an am azingly early ago to perform wonders in poetry, mathomatios, etc., but a habit of orderliness is far mcro import ant to the average human being. Baby is no prodigy at all, just an ordinary human bab...

AMERICAN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 24 February 1914
AMERICAN AGRICULTURE. An American expert says of Agri culture in tho United Stales :~-&lt;&lt;Tlioro is good authority for tho assertion that tho fannor could take from tho same area of ground in four years grain crops as much as seven years now give him. leaving the products of tho other thrco years when the land rested from grain, as a clear profit duo to better methods. He can do far more than that by joining live-stock raising with grain raisiug. Naturo has provided cattle to go with tho laud. . . What our peoplo have to do is to cover less grouud, cultivate smaller farms so as to make tho most of them, instead of getting a scant aud uncertain yield from several hundred acres."

SWIMMING AT BLACK LEAD. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 24 February 1914
SWIMMING AT BLACK LEAD. To the .Editor. bin,—I'or some years past a good deal has been said regarding swimming baths at Creswick. The councillors in their wisdom saw the erection of same would not be a financial proposition. The lilick l,ead dam is a favorite ptace fi>r scores of peisuiii to go to daily and have a dip during the hot spoil. However, there is a great danger even lor the good swimmer in this dam, as it contains about 2 J acres, und an average depth of probably over 40 feit. The surface watu i'» beauti ful and mild, but the lower depth must necessarily be of a much lower temperature. At the present time there is not a yard of rope or any other life saving apparatus on the spot. II the mayor would convene a public meeting and invite the co operation of the school committee:! and public centrally perhaps some good may follow. Cr McPhce offered a rope some time ago. This present could be accepted and put iu position. The old axiom, "Prevention is better than cure," pres...
Kingston. INDUCTION OF REV. J. R. HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 24 February 1914

Snell, by the Bishop of Ballarat (I)r Green ) The members of the vestry met his Lordship and the new vicar at the church door and conducted them to ihe altar, where the licence was read and delivered to Mr Hill kneeling at ihe altar steps. The special lorm of service was conducted by his Lordship, who delivered a magnificent discourse. He dealt with the unity there must he between vicar and his people. Si. Paul, when speaking to the Thessa lonians, said thsy ought to know their priests and the nature of iheir work, and he (the Bishop) thought it right on this occasion to give them an idea of what was expected of a clergyman lie enumerated the many different duties he had to perform during ihe week, for the proper conduct of which he was responsible to his bishop...

OF RURAL INTEREST (13/ "KU8tlCUS.") Tlio possibilities of poultry on the farm aro not generally realised.

A DENIAL. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 24 February 1914
A DENIAL. To the Editor. but, — lu your issue of 20/2/14 ap peared a paragraph, slating slaughtered trees had caused great damage to the school fences and were a source of danger to the children. I would deem It a favor if you would allow me to point out tint the fence here was broken by a bull before the trees were cut down, and anyone living iu Ullinu ktiQws that the trees felled in the school yard fell west, i.e., right away from the fence. The slumps are wlitr-j tiny grew, and if they are a source of danger, then all the trees are danger ous. Anyone passing the school yard can see that the fence ia broken only between the trees, and even in those places it has fjllen oil to the trees, in stead of the trees falling on to the fence. Also, no trees have been slaughtered Uead trees have been cut down, and seven times the number of trees re moved have been planted iri their puces. — Yours, otc 11.'O. b. SINCLAIR. Ullim, 2$U(i.\.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 24 February 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. To tho Editor Sir,—The reply to my last letter is just in keeping with the reputation and part methods of the "TJHina Sensa tionr.list." This class of people work ing on their imaniiiations make all sorts of reckless and untruthful state ments, and when confronted with their would-be victims they, like the yelping terrier, scamper off until auother favorable opportunity offers. Such people deserve and should be treated with absolute contempt. They are always the disturbers of the peace in any community in which they find themselves, until eren the most p2ace-1 loving citizens turns to defend himself. In my last 1 asked for more informa tion in regard to the person signing the letter, as I did not believe that such a person as "E. D. Sinclair" resided here. The reply proved my contention, as with the addition of the letter "O" a lady's name wis revealed. Now, Sir, I have seen this lady's signature on many occasions, and the letter "O'' was used without cither of the o...
