GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914

GOOD HERDS ESSENTIAL. The dairy cow 1b one of the best solutions for the problem of the high cost of living. She not only furnishes cheap, wholesome, and nourishing foods, in the products of the dairy, but the manure, if saved and properly used on the land, will accelerate larger crops and more pro fits per acre. But we must have good herds. Probably in no other industry con nected with the sflil is there more ne nessity for a completo reorganisation of the methods of working than in dairying. Although we have an in comparable jclimate for dairying the business is unsound at its base through the use of any kind of ani mal in the shape of a cow. No sane man would think of sowing the same kind of seed for a grain crop year after year when he found by practi seed was less than one-half what it cal test that the yield from that seed was less than one-half what it should be. Yet men will go on milk ing and rearing calves for future use from cows which do not actually pay for their keep o...

WRECKERS OF MEN AND NATIONS. The Smile and the Wile of Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914

Wreckers of men and nations. The Smile arid the Wile of Woman. Empires have fallen before tlio wiles of woman. Rome snug of the achievements of Antony. Antony look ed into the eyes of Cleopatra and laid down honor and life. Louis XV. dallied with, the Pompa dour and Du Barry until his kingdom tottered. The royal roue died and loft his grandson and heir a heritage of death. Mary Stuart played at love with many men until she lost her throne and at last her head. These women have been the lure that led men to destruction. They baffled scientists and sociologists. I3y all the rules of the game they should have been wholly creatures of evil. Some were, but that others of thein were warm-hearted, impulsive and be witching to good and bad people alike is a' puzzle to alienists.

WRITTEN IN RINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 18 April 1914

WRITTEN IN RINKLES. Nothing is more damaging to beauty in woman than worry. The worrying woman invites the hand of time t.o write plenty of wrinkles on her brow, and round her eyes and mouth; to tint her face yellow, and give dullness to the eye that no artifice can brighten. Worrying, moreover, is quite unneces sary, and is a total waste of energy which could be employed in doing something useful. Everyone knows the worrying woman the moment they see her. Her character is written in her face in wrinkles which apparently nothing short of a miracle could ob literate.
