OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 6 June 1914

OF RURAL INTEREST (By "Eusticus") There is surely some economic law that will exact punishment for the de struction of heifer calves and ©we lambs. Some phases of the matter that do not occur to the average man, but which are, nevertheless, of vital import, were touched upon the other day by Mr. H. J. Manson, Trade Commissioner for-New Zealand, when interviewed in Melbourne. Referring .to the export of ewo lambs he said:— "The foolhardiness of the practice should be enforced upon the farmer by legislation, or by some other emphatic means, otherwise the striking decline as shown in the number of sheep an nually taking place must continue, to the detriment of the State. Some ten years ago an agitation took plaoe in New Zealand for legislation to check practices that were decimating flocks and herds, and I well remember when the^ late Richard John Seddon, the Priem Minister, made an announcement on the subjeot. He was address ng a gathering of pastoralists at Palmerston North, and I pe...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 6 June 1914

MELBOURNE LETTEK (Froh Our Special Correspoiidont.) If there be any foundation for re cent revelations anent the system un der which certificates are issued to as piring motorists, it is hardly a matter for wonder that accidents are. many., and that the man at the wheel is an utiiema to the averago pedestrian. The «vay has been easy for applicants foi 'certificates. A correspondent tells liow. He says:—"There is a great outcry against the reckless driving of motor cars and the consequent killing and maiming of people. . Not once iiave I heard mentioned what I think is the real root of the -whole trouble — the reckless and oareless way in which the hiirities haiid out liccnoes. I think .1 4.dry would show tho following to be' about the method' adopted:—Mr. Any body buys a motor and wants to drive it. He knows nothing about driving a mule, much less a motor-car.

SLEEP AND SOME GREAT MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 6 June 1914

SLEEP AND SOME GREAT MEN. It was Cobden's boast that he could sleep at will. Said he: ''If I had not had the faculty of sleeping liiio a dead fish in five minutes after the most ex citing mental effort, and with the cer tainty of having oblivion for six con secutive hours, I should.not have been alive now." Gladstone's sovereign rules were deliberate mastication of his food and "always eight hours' sleep." So important was this latter consideration that he would never compose" anything after six o'clock at night, as to do so would affect his sleep. Bright oom posed his speeches iin bed ; that tre mendous oration with "the angel of death" and all complete was thought out under his nightcap. Doctor Dol linger, a suffer from insomnia, learnt by heart three books of the Odyssey when seventy years of age, in order to be able to say them ovei to himself in thei silent watehas of the night. Thiers was one of the men to whom much sleep meant life. He fell fast asleep when discussing with Lo...

WOMEN'S INTERESTS [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 6 June 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS (By "Ambrosine.") There is a perfect craze for tulle. Hats are made of it, or trimmed with it, and it makes "the necessary vest to the simple little bodices which we are wearing. The tendency nowadays is all for transparency as regards the ad juncts of our dress. • Everything is ephemeral, and how light, how Ayr away, how. transparent, is the general scheme 1 A frame of the softest shad owy tulle, chiffon, gauze, or lace sur rounds the faco.. It might be all blown away if it were not for a redeeming, utterly incongruous smart velvet crown—and we call it a hat. I" saw an instanoing model the other day, all clouds -of shot grey, and violet tulle, crystallising into something which .was half trimming, half crown; all one fclur on m^ror velvet, mauve and grey. Almost every frock with pretensicms to novelty is draped. The sheathlnfe underskirt, over which the tunic dis posed itself more or less gracefully is no longer allowed, and the underskirt now receives aa much att...

ABOUT THAT BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 6 June 1914

£:& T^AT BOyT (By Arthur D. Dean.) What do i expect or the boy or Iour -teen? Eight at the. start I expeot him to be a boy, not a cherub, not a little old man, nor a sneak. Just plain unadulterated boy. I expect that lie stands well on his feet, looks you in the eye and tells you the truth; that he sleeps when lie sleeps, works when he works and plays when he plays; that he swims like a duck, runs like a deer and sees like an eagle; that lie plays fair on the field, at the school and in the home; that he likes a dog, delights in woods and fields, and be lieves in comrades; that he admires real men, stands by his heroes and looks up to his mother; that he sees in a violet, a sparrow or a worm, the touch of the hand of God. Furthermore, I expect that the boy has a father as well as a mother, a few •brothers and sisters and a wise teaoher or two; that his father remembers that he was once a boy; that his mother tempers her all-abiding love with jus tice; that his home is more t...

MORE SCHOOL HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 6 June 1914

MORE SCHOOL HUMOUR, i | There is 110 end to the howlers from | tho schoolroom. An authority' .on the I subject has'just been pointing out that j in English literature papers young peo ple are sometimes asked-, to give their i criticisms on certain books or .authors, i They usually rely on criticisms whicu they have read in books, -but. if their ; memories fail the results are _ often disastrous. One youthful critic cast aspersion upon Milton , when he wrote.: "Milton married a young girl who ran back to her parents, so he wrote a sonnet on-divorce." "Shakespeare," affirmed another young oritic, "found ed ' 'As You Like It,' on. a book pre viously written by Sir Oliver Lodge." ■•'After, twice committing suicide,' the poet Couper lived till 1800, when • he ! died a natural death:" Another hope j ful wrote: "Sir Walter Scott's firm 01 publishers liquified, and he had to pay off the national debt before he died." And the youthful historian sagely added: "This wore him out."
