Life Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 March 1871

Life Thoughts. God thinks more of the good than of the world-popular. Hopfi is the dawn of joy, and memory its twilight. There is no shady side to the pathway of duty. Education is the chief defense of nations* The deepest love shows itself in the eye and touch. "Little children loved him," is the only epitaph I care about. "Thebe is nothing great on earth but man; there is nothing great in man but mind." It is always in our power to make a friend by smiles; what a folly, then, to make an enemy by frowns. Sloth iliakes all things difficult, but industry all easy; and he that rises late must trot all day, and shall scarce overtake his business at night; while laziness travels so slowly, that poverty soon overtakes him. Man was never intended to be idle. Inactivity frustrates the very design of his creation; whereas an active life is the best guardian of virtue, and the greatest preservative of health. Satire is a soi-t of glass, wherein beholders generally discover everybody's face b...

Aim at Something. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 March 1871

Aim at Something. Multitudes of men relaize nothing, because they devise nothing —perfect nothing, because they project nothing. "They simply float on the surface of the occasion and trust to the sublimity of luck." Micawberlike, they are "waiting for something to turn up." He is a most unreasonable man, who expects to achieve, by accident, that which every successful man achieves, only, of set purpose. He is more unreasonable, who enters a bill of indictment against Fortune, for being so hard with him, when he is no hard with himself He upbraids poor blind Fortune, because she does not come and heap Upon his head a lap-full of good things, while, really, he does not a single good thing for himself. A marksman will tell you, that if you would hit the target you must aim at it. No random shots are expectel to "drive the cross"—it will not happen once in a million of chances, especially if there be no idea of the direction in which it lies. Yet there are thousands of good, easy people...

NEW ZEALAND FLAX. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 March 1871

NEW ZEALAND FLAX. [Written (or the Press.] [Concluded from page 140.] Little or nothing is really known, as I have already stated, as to the amount of the Phormium Tenax which can be grown on an acre of ground; and, indeed, it must be some time before that fact can be fully ascertained, for like all other plants it is sure to vary according to the richness of the soil, the care taken of the ground, and the species planted; but many have arrived at the conclusion that ten tons per acre, of the green material is no unreasonable amount to expect, and I concur with them. I have heard of 30 tons being cut from one measured acre in the Waikato District, and believe it; but it must have been both very rank and close grown. Such a crop could not be grown where the plant was cut regularly, every year. I believe that it would be a better plan to cut a field once every second year, that is to have two portions, cutting one this year and another the next. If planted in a field, the rows ought t...

STARVING STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 March 1871

STARVING STOCK. Eds. Press. —When will our people learn wisdom V It seems as if they have no care for the morrow. Do they ever take into consideration the amount of responsibility that rests upon them, in taking care of stock? Stock is property; then take care of it. The man who neglects to provide for his stock is not worthy of raising it. Nothing looks more unpleasant to a passer by, than the appearance of a herd of half-starved cattle. Such a sight is no credit to the owner, particularly, in a State, like this, where it can be so easily remedied. The cause of the loss of stock by starvation or cold lies in the careless manner in which stock growers conduct their business. They take no thought of the future. They provide nothing; but depend upon nature alone. That will not answer. Our seasons, at certain times, every year, require shelter and special food for stock; and it becomes all humane men to make some provision therefor. A little stock, well taken care of, is far better tha...

HUMOROUS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 11 March 1871

HUMOROUS. • 'Madam. " said a pompous husband whoso wife had stole up behind him and given him akiss —"Madam, I consider such an act indecorous!" Excuse me," retorted tho wife,"l didn't know it was you!" Why is a grain of sand in the eye like a schoolmaster's cane? Because it hurts the pupil. "Women," remarked the contemplative man, "are as deep as the blue waters of yon bay." "Ay sir," rejoined the disappointed man, " and as full of craft." Old maids are descibed as "embers from which the sparks have fled." Some say that the quickest way to destroy weeds is to marry a widow. It is, no doubt, a most agreeable species of husbandry. "I have the most effective eye water here that you ever saw," said a peddler to an old farmer. "No you haint," responded the farmer; "taint half so effective as a woman's tears, and I've seen lots of them. They beat all the eye water you've got in your pack." Kise early, work hard and late, live on what you kant sell, give nothing away, and if you don't die...
