GOOD MANNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
GOOD MANNERS. Have you ever heard any one 6ay, "Oh, if I were rich I'd have thingB nice then"? Did you ever notice whe ther she had things as nico without being rich as she could? Just as the rich and poor use the same standard of spelling, ns free to one aB to the other, so they can both use the same standard of good breeding if they choose. Good manners cost attention, and that is all. The same man or wo man who would feel disgraced to write i for 1, or to spell poorly, thinks it is no matter if he eats with his knife, keeps his hat on in the house, or is re miss in the many little things that custom has decided ought to be done. There is the same reason for being remiss in spelling as in politeness. Politeness is like an air-cushion— though there may be notKing in it, it eases the jolt of this world wonder fully." That one is poor is no ex cuse for rough ways; neither does it excuse a slack table service. It is the little things that make living delight ful. Mrs. Whitney is not f...
CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
CHILDREN'S FRIENDSHIPS. From about the fifth or sixth year children are apt to make firm- friend ships with their small contemporaries. This should be a watchful period Xor mothers, for these early friendships liave a marked Influence on tho mind, morals and manners of a child. Nearly every character is moulded very largely by early companionship and surroundings. Every mother should take care to be her children's companion as far as possible, for she may be quite sure that if they are left to the care of servants, they will at the best only attain the ideal manners and customs of the nursery or ser vants's hall, which are not quite those of the cultured classes. Children re quire the companionship of little folk of their own age, and a mother should be so much her children's friend that she knows all their associates, and is able to nip in the bud any acquaint ance which she thinks undesirable. The mother who, to save herself fa \ tiguo, lets her children seek compan ions among the...

CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
CHAPTER I. When Mr. Topper determined upon his history-making demonstration, he took it for granted that the supply o£ specimens was unlimited. So much was this the case that he intended an almost fastidious choice of a thor ough-going villain: one from wlios'a breast every human sympathy had died, every decent motive was miss ing, every aspiration lost. The works of iiction told him of the existence of numbers of such men; no popular work was complete without the ebony hearted scoundrel. And Mr. Topper had determined that his villain must be the genuine article, as otherwise his demonstration would prove no thing. "What's the use of me getting a man who has lingering hopes of reform or who has redeeming qualities?" he told himself sternly, "in such a man I should only succeed in awaking thj good that was asleep in the man's mind. No, I want a thorough-paced villain." ills morning post the next day brought him, amongst the rest, two begging letters. One was from a man with a family ...
T'opper's Champion Villain. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
Topper's Champion Villain. By ASHLEY M1LNER. CHAPTKR I. Very earnestly, yet lu a voice sub dued so that lii:i housekeeper might not hear it, Mr. John Topper address ed his reflection in the mirror. He was a short, robust, benevolent looking man upon whose plump lac-j forty years of placid life had written but few lines to mark their passage. Comfortably off, as the phrase goes; untroubled by the cares of business or family, Mr. Topper beamed at the world through his rimless spectacles and passed his long hours dabbling eagerly with the science of sociology, j He stood now, dressed in his long morning coat, his left hand gripping at its left lapel in the Baltouriun atti tude, rehearsing the paper which he was to deliver that night to the Bess borough Sociological Society "And now, in conclusion, Air. Chair man and Gentlemen," he was saying, "i await your verdict upon the argu ments I have put forth, I maintain that crime is not so much a matter of hereditary as environment. A thief's...
The Bright Side. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
A | The Bright Side. I A lady residing in a quiet village in Suffolk used to' take an interest in a very aged couple who were spinning out the last thread of life in "Darby and Joan" fashion, seated on either side of the fireplace. She often paid them a friendly visit to cheer them up. The old man had heen ailing, and at last a day came when the visitor found only one chair occupied. Darby was not in his usual place. "Where is your husband?" "Well, mum, lie be gone at last." "Oh, I'm sorry. That is very sad for you," said the lady, seeking to find some words of consolation. "Yes, mum, it bo said," replied the old woman; "but then, you see, he were fearfully in the way of the oven." , An obstinate man is any man who doesn't think as we do.
TO PREVENT HAIR-BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
TO PREVENT HAIR-BALL. Hundreds of calves die every year from one cause or another, and very otten the farmer Is at a loss to kno\i ; the cause o£ death, Practical experi | ence counts all the time. Mr. J. A. Bird, of Duranbox, Tweed River, j N.S.W., is a dairy farmer who, when a c*lf dies, wants to know the reason why. He had some calves die. He . opened the stomach of one and found a hard mass of hair like a piece of felt and about the size of a tennis ball, which had collected through the calves sucking the ears of each oth er at feeding time, which is a com mon practice among young calves. Mr. Bird tried many means ot prevention, 'and finds that a small quantity of fresh cow manure mixed with separ ated milk, and allowed to stand in the sun all day before being rubbed on the ears and bellies of the calves at feeding time completely breaks the bad habit.

"Wilt thou let her have her way, consult her many wishes; make the fire every day, and help her wash the dishes? "Wilt thou give her all the money her little purse will pack; buy a iboa and a muff, and a little sealskin sacque? "Wilt thou comfort and support her father and mother, Aunt Mary, Uncle Ed., three sisters, and a brother?" The poor man's face grew pale and blank. It was too late to jilt. As through the chapel floor he sank, he sadly said, "I wilt."
VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
VARIOUS VIEWS OF "PROFIT." Largo crops are not always profit able crops, and the finest looking ani mal does not always give the largest ' net return. For generations we have been taught and urged to grow bigger crops, unmindful of the relation of in creased cost to increased production. The value of Increased production al ways depends upon whether or not It is economically secured, i.e., upon whethor the margin of profit an acre is increased or not. Another important factor always to be kept in mind is the relation which any part of the farm enterprise bears to the whole. A crop judged by it self might be profitable and yet the system might be unprofitable. For oxample, timothy hay might prove a good crop in any one year, or even two or three years, but eventually the yield must decline, because a system of farming with this crop alone would not be likely to maintain fer tility, so that the system could not be called profitable. On the other hand, clover might not prove to be a mo...

ROK E WOO I) J U X Cl'IOX, SCHOOL CONCERT.

There was u&lt;» dull motony abont the items presented: they wi-re bright, breezy, varied. For the children to have attained such a liigh degree of efficiency rsvealed the master minds and hands behind i;he scenes; and to'the head teacher, Mr Norman McHntchison; his tal ented and versatile wife; and the gifted school stair, can be attributed the greatest eulogy. Mr D. Poynton was the chairman, and it was little wonder he expressed himself as being highly pleased to be present amongst such a happy, bright, and intelligent young family of enter tainers. The programme was a long one, but the audience was so cap .tivated by the excellence of the iteuia that, hecdleai o£ TJuie, tbey yearned for more. So capably did the whole of the c...
THICK OR THIN SOWING. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 6 June 1914
THICK OR THIN SOWING. The quality of seed which should be sown depends on a number of cir cumstances, such as character of the soil, its moisture, freedom from weeds, size, germinating power, age of the seed, and again on the time of sowing, the nature of the plant, method of sowing, depth, etc. All these factors have to be considered; but in general we think it may be said that seed is sown more often too thickly than the reverse, especially when the operation is performed by hand. It is a waste of seed, and, moreover, detrimental in so far as it tends to produce weakly plants, sub ject to disease, and also to produce cereals that "lodge," a groat source of lose to cereal growers. The age of the seed is an important factor. Old seed has lost some of its germinating power, so new seed should be used. Gfouchy Parent: No, sir, my daugh ter shall not marry you! Suitor: But your daughter wishes to, sir, and she told me just now that you would deny her nothing. Grouchy Parent: That, sir,...
