IS THIS TRUE? Self-praise Is No Recommendation. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 22 December 1937
IS THIS TRUE 7-^-^ 1 Self-praise Is No Recommendation. (BY 'FREELANCE'). There's the chap with a 'Can't,' and tbr- cbno with 'Perhaps,' j And the chap who's betwixt more or less; There's the chap with an 'Aye' when it ought to be 'Nay,' And a 'No' when it ought to be 'Yes.' A fig for this old-time adage, for it is o dog-in-the-manger sort of adage, as I shall try to prove. First, let me say this: Have you ever watched the self-confident man go at a job that he knows he can do? He doesn't 'hum and haw,' nor does he waste any time. Though he does not say so in words, his actions say, 'I am ' vain enough to try to prove to yow that I can do this job. and do it well.' The man or woman who goes in any I important contest is vain enough to think that he or she is capable of I winning, and it is a silent way of say 1 ing, 'I think that I can land the bacon.' I would not give a last year's hen egg for the man or woman who, knowing that he or she is master of a certain subject or accomplishm...

OPEN COLUMN (To the Editor).

The.. Garden [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News, Nowra — 22 December 1937
The . . Garden (By Our Special Gardening Expert). Although many people suffer dis appointment when essaying the task of raising asters, either from seeds or in transplanting seedlings, the chief cause for this disappointment is found in attempting to grow the species too early. When gardeners realise that asters should be looked on as an autumn flowering proposition, they will find their efforts being crowned with far greater success. The cooler and more settled conditions of autumn, together with the occasional showers of rain which can be confi dently expected at that period, have a marked bearing on the welfare of asters; and certain it is that wherever the sowing and planting of these wonderful flowering plants is delayed until December, or even January (in most places), the results are usually quite satisfactory, whereas when the plants have to endure the heat of late spring and summer months, they sel dom have the vitality to produce those large trusses of noble blooms which d...
