BOLDNESS AS AN IMPERATIVE VIRTUE IN LOVE AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 December 1914
BOLDNESS AS AN IMPERATIVE VIRTUE IN LOVE AFFAIRS. Following are extracts from essays in a prize taking competition: "You naughty thing, Mr. Pendenys, you put the idea into my head, and you are really responsible for the re sult. I've hooked him-I mean he has proposed to me at last. I'm sure that nobody would take me for a day over thirty, or, say, thirty-five; and as I walked out of Acadia Villa on August 2nd, I really looked quite girl ish. I had on my new petunia blouse -such a love 1--my green velvet skirt and my sweet little pork pie hat, which I had done up with a mert valuable ostrich feather which Uncle James lett me, and which I have had died red. 1 flatter myself that I looked most lady-like; and even that cat, Mrs. Brown, next door, was struck, for when I came by she was looking out of the window, wasting her time, n= stead of looking after her nasty child ren, but called her husband, and they both stood on the step and watched me out of sight. I never saw two people look ...
SHY PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 December 1914
SHY PEOPLE. The following are seome extracts from essays in a prize competition: Men suffer from shyness much more than women; there is scarcely to be found such a thing as a shy woman. I know the generally accepted idea is quite the reverse. Women are sup posed to be gentle, of the clinging ivy or startled fawn description, while men are firm, courageous creatures, with superior nerves.--Extraot from Essay by Dorothy Stocks. Like a cold in the head, shyness is never recognised as ait serious coin plaint; it is merely the motif of many a good joke, and the mainstay of the practical joker. Those who suffer fromn this fell disease seek desperately for solitude; they dodge the genial after noon caller, they skip behind trees to avoid the gardener, and feign interest in plumbers' windows rather than risk a possible chat in the street.-Exract from Essay by Christabel Marshall. Sometimes shy people are the nicest, and by no means the worse for hiding their lights under bushels; far be it ...
PRISON DE LUXE FOR GERMANS EPICURES OF THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 December 1914
PRISON DE LUXE FOR GERMANS EPICURES OF THE SEA. A correspondent, writing from Car diff, says: In contrast to, the treatment of Eng lish people in Germany, who have been called spies, placed in prison and gen orally shown me consideration, is the treatment accorded the German prison ors at Cardiff. There are altogether 217 German pri soners, and they are all seamen. When I saw them in their comfortable quar ters at Enginers' Drill Hall, at the back of the Post Office. they were happy and contented. They told me they had no complaints to make. On their arrival at the institute they were given a lantern lecture. This en tertaimnent was organised by a com, inittee of women, and the prisoners cannot speak too highly of this kindly act. Ships' officers among the prisoners have the use of the large recreation room. Here the prisoners play games, such as billiards. While I was there an officer was whiling the hours away by playing the piano amnd another was playing the vio lin. While these ...
FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 4 December 1914
FOR WOMEN (By "Ambrosine.'") it is a. pity that there is not some punishment r;iich can be meted out to- one of tl most offensive types of women that' iste-a type that nearly every neighborhood unfortunately knows-the woman who takes for her life creed the fatal words, "I thought it my duty to t.U you," and spends her days confusing wuac she covets over by the much-burdened word "duty" with what is nothing more nor less than the pettiest spite or the most ma licious curiosity, and a desire to gos sip and meddle in other people's affairs. It is bad enough when this woman in flicte suffering upon older people, but it is, unfortunately, all too often the case that this type of woman picks out little children or young people as marks for her degenrate tongue. - Particularly happy is this gossip-loving woman when she can tell some happy child that the woman she thinks is her real mother is only her step-mother, or that she is an adopted child.' Over and over again has it happened that ch...

There was a deal of healthy liowlers' barrack, and it seemed as though some of the visitors were "pu...

ENGLISH WHEAT POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 11 December 1914
ENGLISH WHEAT POSITION. '"'Beerbohm," in the Liverpool "Evening Corn Trade List," of Octo ber 9, referring to the wheat position in Great Britain, said:-"Shipments last week were fairly liberal, considering that North America and. India are prac tically the only sources whence supplies are now coming, but the imports into the United Kingdom were well below the requirements notwithstanding con tinued large deliveries of English wheat. The stocks at the ports prove, as indicated by the first returns re ceived,'to be decidedly below the theo retical quantity, and amounted on Oc tober 1 to 2,600,000 quarters, against 2,100,000 quarters a month ago, and 2,400,000 quarters last year. Invisible stocks must have increased by about 600,000 quarters during the month. France is also receiving fairly large quantities of foreign wheat, but stocks of foreign wheat in other countries must be diminishing rapidly. The war drags along slowly, with no apparent signs of its being over for a long time, ...
POTATO CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 11 December 1914
* POTATO, CULTURE. (By J. 'T'. -itnlmsay, Potato Expert, '"Journal. of Agriculture."), There can be no question that the cultivation of the potato as t field crop .ranks as one of the most import ant branches of agriculture. Since its introduction into the economy of the larm, it has steadily grown in favor throughout the world, until, to day, it occupies the position as one of, the staple foods, and its cultiva tion,; more particularly in Europe, is even followed to provide raw material for the imafiuf:cit:cr of flour, spirit, and starch. As a staple food its imiportaneo is obvious when. 6oie con sitlers that it is regarded almost as an esseintial. , Its comparative cheapiess makes it available to all classes, and the beneficial effect which its proper culti??ition has on the soils in which it is grown, rendors it a crop of great importance to farmers practising in districts climatically suitable for its cultivation. The importance of the crop, then, being palpable, it is not only ...
