FIXED DATES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 9 May 1914
FIXED DATES. Routine is exceedingly strong in Rus sia. There is a day in June, upon which, says tradition, it becomes safe to bathe in the rivers, after the winter frosts. No matter how warm the water may be' earlier, no matter iiow col J it may be on that day,' then is the time to take the first swim. No man dare touch an apple before the 6th of August, however ripe the fruit may really be before that day. He does not believe it is fit to eat. No traveller will start on a journey oil either a Monday or a Friday. Although' the delay is stroiigij against his own interests, the iishernian will not cast his nets before a certais day, whether the season . be late or early. No lamb is supposed to bo able to reach the age of mutton should it have been born before the day named in t ho peasant's calendar. And so on through all the common events in their daily life does this attachment to fixed date? hedge in an average Russian peasants existence.

Home is ~_ia kingdom; love ia lu dower;: She seeks no other wand of power To make home sweet, bring heaven neat To win a smile and wipe a tear, And do. her duty day by day In her own quiet place and way. Around her childish hearts are twined, As round some reverend saint enshrined And following hers the childish feet Are led to ideals true and sweet, And find all purity and good In her divinest motherhood. She keeps her faith unshadowed still God rules the world in good and ill; Men in her creed are brave and true, And women pure as pearls of dew, And life for her is high and grand, By work and glad endeavour spanned. This sad old earth's a brighter place All for the sunshine of her face; Her very smile a blessing throws, And hearts are happier where she go...
