THE INFLUENCE OF SUNSHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 April 1914

THE INFLUENCE OF SUNSHINE. What a difference tho condition of the weather makes in our temper; and how mercurial the generality of mor tals are. True, there are some who are so curiously constituted that a miserably wet and gloomy day is the same to them as a glorious sunshiny day in summer; but surely they are in the minority. We must' all have noticed what a difference the weather makes in the temper of the children, and more particularly those of older srowth. There are, of course, some who see signs of breaking up in the fairest Jay, but these are the systematic grumblers who are always finding tha crumpled rose-leaf. When the sun Is shining gloriously upon us the misan thrope will, at any rate for a time, forget his moody forebodings and per haps concede, though grudgingly, ;hat there Is a hope for better times, [f we cannot under these circumstan ces look a little more hopefully upon things generally, and acknowledge .hat there Is a silver lining to every cloud, then we are In...

HIGH ROOSTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 April 1914

HIGH ROOSTS. Tim large heavy liens can only reach the high roosts with difficulty, they are liable to be dislodged Horn their position, thrown oft and injured by the fall.

WE SOON GET TIRED. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 April 1914

WE SOON GET TIRED. We set out in the morning Cull of energy, and weary at noontide. Then we talk a lot of stnft about "Dead Sea fruit," and tlie rocljy, perilous road of life. We need not touch the fruit, and the horizon of the possible is infinite. To hear one say, after sixty, seventy, or eighty years of life, that there is nothing worth living for, is to hear the words of folly; it is to hear the com plaint of a child who has wandered Into by-paths, scratched his hands in the' brambles, and who needs a "est and a wash-especially the wasV. There is always something worth living for. There are two remedies for this: first . the appetite for Jearning, and next that for doing good. In order to be happy we must ad vance. We need change and a hobby, which, if it be the acquiring of know ledge, Is all the better. It keeps us hopeful children. We commonly ig nore these truths. At fourteen, fifteen or sixteen the child is told that the days of school work are over. He or she is turned out...

A certain Jim Balsden had been walking with a girl called Bessie-never mind her maiden name, it is hers no longer -for a twelvemonth, and then took to walking 011 Sundays with another girl, Jane Ivneebone. As one evening he was returning from gallivanting with Jane, he crossed Lea Moor, and went Into the bog, and was caught by the feet.
