PROCRASTINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 13 June 1914

PROCRASTINATION. You are merely storing sorrow )r the future, sages say, if you p.ut off till to-morrow tilings which should be done to-day. When there is a job unpleasant that it's up to me to do, I attack it in the present, give a whoop and push it through; tEen my mind is free from troubles, and I sit before the fire pop ping corn or blowing bubbles, or a whanging at my lyre. If I said: "There is no hurry—that old job will, do next week," there would be a con stant worry making my old brain-pan creak. For a man knows no enjoy ment resting at tho close of day, if ho knows that some employment is neg lected in that way. There is nothing more consoling at the setting of the sun, when the evening bells are toll ing, than the sense of duty done. And that solace cometh never to the jnan of backbone weak who postpones all sano endeavor till the middle of next week. Let us then be up and doing, with a heart for any fate, as the • poet said, when shooing agents from his garden gate. Let u...

HINTS ABOUT HORSE TRAINING [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 13 June 1914

HINTS ABOUT HORSE TRAINING Many valuable animals are spoiled by improper or harsh treatment. A man who is incapable of understanding the disposition of the horse is certainly in capable of training, him; for the horse is endowed by the Creator with rare intelligence. Therefore; in his tender age, lie should have good care and proper training by being used with kindness and good judgment; at tho same time, he must be given to under stand that although frightened or ex cited, he is to obey. The horse being more nearly human than any other animal, you cai,i get along much better if you hold a con sultation with him to a certain degree. For instance, if you were going to ask a favor of a crank, would you go to him and say, "I need help and you have got to help mo or I sh#U force you to do it?" Would1 the man do it or not? Yet that is the way the so oalled horse-breaker does. In my ex perience of training colts and older hor ses, two-thirds of those I have handled have been called viciou...

The Judge was holding a court when Mis.- Beem in entered the court room and seated lurself near the l>ar to' wait for the iudge, who had promised to go with her on a shopping exped ition. William Lawton, a young man of prepossessing appearance, was being tried for disorderly conduct. After hurrying through the evidance the judge fined him £2 and costs, and as Law'ton had no ready cash' he was ordered to b* locked up. "That!s an ; outrage," declared Mrs. Beeman in voluntarily.

HINTS TO DAIRY FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 20 June 1914

HINTS TO DAIRY FARMERS. (By B. T. Archer, Senior Dairy Inspec tor.) !> 1. Don-'t feed strong smelling foods immediately before or during milk ing. Always after milking. Because the milk will absorb any odors that come in contact with it. . 2. Don't forget to face your shed east and forth. Because the morning sun helps to lieep the shed sweet and wholesome. 3. Don't neglect to put an impervious floor in the milking'shed. Because if the floor is not impervious urine and filth soak in, and milk will absorb smells arising therefrom. Brick or bluestone pitchers grouted' with ce ment, or concrete, make good floors. 4. Don't neglect to limewash the sheds and dairy twice yearly. Because it helps to keep down flies, disfease, and smells. • - 5. Don't neglect to have yards pitched or gravelled. Because souring and .taint In milk are. due to contamination, principally by germs found in manure; therefore, all manure must be regularly cleared away. 6.

Open Column. DISMISSAL OF THE SLIPPER. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 20 June 1914

' Open €olumn. DISMISSAL OF THE SLIPPER. Sir,—Aftter slipping' for various meetings for the past 15 years, my services have been dispensed with by the Penshurst Coursing Club. Why 1 For, as it is stated, slipping too short. Well, had I slipped longer many of my hares wouK'ha s been lost, but un fortunately, some of the hares happen ed to be a bit weak, which gave some of the members a chance to vent their personal greivances against me, for that is what it amounts to. The fact that most coursing men like - their puppies slipped a little short rather than long, is lost sight of altogether: Well, I have to tlianlc my friends? for their action, but I cannot compliment them upon the way it was done. Be fore the meeting, the chairman asked some of my friends to be sure and vote for me. Then, he turns round and says after my last slipping I am not entitled to support. Wei1, I ran forgive him this latter remark seeing that he is a new hand at the game. Some weeks ugo, ]$Ir. Gannon told me ...

Walsh, who was ovted to the chair, explained that owing to the non attendance of the majority of the com mittee at previous ^meetings, and the resignations of some of the most ener getic supporters they had been unable to go on with the business, and it had been deemed advisable to call this meeting with the object of electing new officers, and re-organising the club. There had been practically a deadlock; 'meeting after meeting had been called, and the attendance was so bad that at last meet ing they had not a quorum to deal with resignations.

TRICKED. "I say,", shouted an urehtn, poking liis head in at tho village butcher's shop, "there's a big black dog just gone dawn the street, with a tongue in its mouth." Seizing a chopper, the butoher rush ed out after the canine thief. He caught a glimpse of a dog just turning the street corner, and gave chase; but after much dodging and twisting, eventually lost sight of th» animal. # "Have you seen a big black dog with a tongue in its mouth?" he asked of a group of loiterers. "With a tongue in'its mouth?" said one, derisively. "Did you ever see on* without?" Enlightend, the butcher returned to his shop, to find that he had lost, not a tongue, but a good-sized joint though it is safe to say. a dog was not the thief. Variety 1 There lies the magio.

FOOTBALL. ST. GEORGE 11.8 BEAT PENSHURST 3.10. [Newspaper Article] — Penshurst Free Press — 20 June 1914

FOOTBALL. By "Has Been." ST. GEORGE 11.8 BEAT PENSHURST 3.10. The senior grade competition was advanced another stage on Saturday last, when the above teams met oJ the local ground, the game resulting in an easy win for the visitors. About an hour before the commencement of the match, rain began to fall, and although it cleared off while the game was in pro gress, it made all the difference to the play. The ball became very greasy, both teams finding it very difficult to handle, consequently, good football was not much in evidence. On the bounce of the ball St. George attacked, and within a minute had registered a goal This they followed up with'three more, and thus early in the game they estab lished a good lead. The locals, despite one or two good efforts, which included some nice chains of marks, were never able to get near their opponents, and the game became practically uninterest ing. It was in marked contrast to the game they put up against North Ham ilton, when the issue was...

Standing in the. shadow A' the wall, he. saw them bring out the body and place it in a sitting position on the seat of the trap, so that when they drove away the body, which they had wrapped in a dark cloak, would in the dim light look like a third man sitting between the other two. They got over the wall again to fill in the grave. The doctor lifted the ' body down from the trap, laid it under the wall, and -seated him...

A BETTER DANCER. - * Two "\yild Hielandmen," recruits ot a famous kilted corps, were visiting an English church for the first time. They had not long been seated when tlic" organist began to play a lively voluntary. This was something quite novel in their churoh experience, asid they listened in open-mouthed aston ishment. One of them was shortly roused from his blissful reverie by a gentl« tap upon the shoulder. Turning round, he saw a handsome lady, the owner of the pew, 'who smiled graci ously upon him and wished, of course, to be allowed to pasB to her seat. He. did not, however,-take-in the-situa tion. "Na, na, mem, tak ma mate her#," he. whispered to her audibly, "he will be a better dancer than me 1" The OW 'Un: Pluck, my boy, pluck, first and last, that is the'one essential to success in business.
