SIX CENTURIES OLD. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly News — 22 August 1914
SIX CENTUEIES OLD.

RESPECT TO PARENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly News — 22 August 1914
RESPECT TO PARENTS. One of the most remarkable traits in the character of the people of antiquity ivas filial respect. The most violent nnd most impetuous heroes submitted, without reluctance, to the most severe dictates of parental authority. There is, perhaps, no language ■which can-ex press. without circumlocution,- -tho meaning of one word among the Greeks —it meant the obligation of children to repay the maintenance, the educa tion, and the tender care of their par ents. The amiable expressions of filial respect were extended into a more general sentiment of regard for the in firm and aged. Even among brothers who were nearly of the same ages the younger was obliged to yield in every instance to the eider, and it was an acknowledged principle of religion tljat the rights of superior years should al ways be respected.
WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly News — 22 August 1914
work: In a family, all of us are, or ought to be, workers in one way or another. But by far too much of the work done in the house is done in a very half-hearted manner. How many of us, whether in cooking a meal, or making a bed, or dusting a room, are filled with an earnest desire-that the work we do shall be a thorough, honest, faithful per lormance, that shall properly fulfil its purpose The great difference in la bour of all kinds is not so much in what is done, as in how it is done; not so much in the kind of work we perform as in the spirit we put into it. From the cleansing of a room to the formation of a government, from the humblest work of the hands to the noblest work of the head and heart, it is the deter mination to make it of the best quality that p'.aces it, and the person perform ing it, in the front rank.

Ho then cited, some examples -which showed that it had indeed been effec tive. It must nut be employed for every trivial offence. I keep it as a grand leserva measure for extreme cases. In deed, I do not believe 1 have resorted :o it a dozen times since I heard of it. When I begin to undress him he fairly roars; then he pleads and begs, with great tears rolling dr-wn his cheeks, that I let him stay up, for he will " never, never do so again."
