THE BACKWARD CHILD. "I sometimes feel quite /worried about Helen I" a mother once said to me, "I really don't believe that there 1b anything at all in the child, she is so stupid and shy and backward that I sometimes fear slio has not all her wits." "Have you told her so?" 1 asked. "Oh, yes! Over nnd over again. But It makes no difference." : 1 really don't wonder at that! The poor, little backward child was getting | crushed when what she needed was encouragement. In overy family thore 1b sure to be one. child who is less quick than tho others, but it is not fair to .impress this fact on her mind, and let her grow lip with the fooling that sHo is good for nothing. • ' llemember that children develop at .very different rates. A little girl who comes on early, and Is very sharp at ton years' old, may be only average ' a't fifteen; while one who was back ward at ten may afterwards make up for lost time in such a way that she will go far past:her sister..

CHAPTER II. The Vicar. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 27 June 1913
CHAPTER II. The Vicar. By this time, the Squire and his friend were approaching a rickety live-barred gate which stood open, as the hinges being useless, it could not easily be shut. Passing through this, they advanced up a wide untidy drive qvergrown with grass, and this dis mal path conducted them to a weeily stony expense, girdled by an unculti vated jungle. Flowers, shrubs, herbs, trees, docks and darnels wore all mixed up together in a way, suggest ing only too clearly the sluggard's garden, and Almost aggressively pre sented an aspect of decay. Tho vicar age thoroughly matched this desola tion, although in .skilful ,hands it could have been made into a mo:;t. charming residence. Carrington viewed this deadly solitude with disgust.

"Is your vicar an owl or a jackal that he can live here?" Hendle laughed deeply and pulled a...

TENNIS DANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 27 June 1913
TENNIS DANCE An enjoyable dance arranged by the Oaklands Tennis Club was held in the School of Arts on Monday evening and, although the attendance was interfered with by the unfavorable weather about 30 couples were present, and had a good evening's dancing. The music was supplied by Miss Hynes, of Urana, and left nothing to be desired, and it is likely that her services will be enlisted on future occasions. The ladies provided refeshments, which were handed round during the evening, and were greatly appreciated- Mr J. Kenny acted as M.C. in his usual capable style. The arrangements were in the hands of the honorary secretary, Mr D. Crisp, and he is to be complimented upon the suc cess of the function. It is expect ed there will be a small credit bal ance to hand over to the Club.
