WORKING LIKE A DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 3 January 1914

WORKING LIKE A DOG. You've heard people say that they have "worked like a dog all day." An exchange has figured that, if this were literally true, the 24 hours would be spent thus:—One hour dig ging out a rat, two hours knawing a bone, one hour waiting for a cat to come down from a tree, half an hour begging to get in the house, and the* balance of the time sleeping on a mat • in the cold doorway.

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 3 January 1914

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. The bluntest remarks cut deepest. Friendship is never hand-made^-it grows. Tears never yet wound up a clock or worked a steam-engine. No sermon is too long for the wo man with a new hat. | What a piece of woik is man. What a piece of fancy-work is woman. Every man has his price, and many are willing to give themselves away. The very last thing a normal wo man wants from any man is—the truth. A cautious man is like a hat-pin. His head prevents him from going too far. It is charming to be always smiling, but such people as a rule live iu men tal hospitals. When a woman mpets a man half Way he begins to tliink it is time for him to turn back. The men who think ihat money can do anything will probably ilo any thing for money. A big fist can bruise an eye, but not for so long ac a litle dimple can bruise a man's heart. You may face financial ruin, death, illness, even gaol with calmness, but the tickle of a persistent fly—never. The sleep of the just may be sweet, but...

' Why don't they use Lux1 ?" A little boy said, \s he tried to draw His shirt o'er his head Whilst I grow bigger, My shirt is shrinking, And the opposing forces, I am much thinking Will end in disaster To that shrinking shirt ! can't shrink to suit A shirt shrunken short I must have room to grow— While my shirt says, no. The shirt must suffer, If it still acts so. But the shirt needn't shrink, And I may still grow—1 For Lux is made to wash Woollens, white as snow Without any shrinking, Soft as eiderdown. Lux is sold in packets, Everywhere in town. Twopence is the price, i And the price is low, If Lux'll give me room, In my shirt to grow. Why do they do it ? If they'd only think To wash wool with Lux, Woollens will not shrink. Won't Shrink Woollens. Lever Brothers Limited, Sydnsy. Don't get into a habit of thinking so much of your own merits and at tainments that you are blind to those of others. Never save up your best manners for special occasions.

A "Fowl" Stroke. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 3 January 1914

A "Fowl" Stroke. Fittingly clad in Norfolk suit and hop-scotch stockings, Lofter Greene strode forth to play his daily round of "goff." Just as he was about to "tee off," however, an old woman dashed, out of an adjacent cottage and hailed him. "Are you the man who was playin' here yesterday?" she cried. "I was playing here yesterday!' re plied Lofter pompously. "Then I reckon your sport'll cost you 'arf-a-sovereign," said the wo man. "You've heen an' killed one o' my prize 'ens!" "Preposterous!" exclaimed Greene. "There wasn't a fowl about!" • "Dessay there weren't!" replied the woman. "But, after you'd gone, I found a golf-ball, and poppel it under one o' my 'ens for a nest-egg!" "Well?" said the golfer. "It ain't well!" snapped the lady. " 'Cos that 'en's dead of a broken 'eart through thinkin' I wanted it to lay crinkley eggs!"

IS.LIFE WORTH LIVING? By "Philo." To almost everyone there occurs times when the question whether life is worth living thrusts itself upon them; but there are, fortunately, very few who come to a negative conclu sion and decide to anticipate nature by hurrying "behind the veil." To those In the possession of buoy ant health the question occurs but seldom, but there are so many people who are never in thorough health, and others who suffer from pain and sick ness, that to them—the far larger class —the vital question is apt to intrude itself with persistency. It is remarkable how many people suffer from pain and sickness which they could readily be cured of if they were aware of the cause of their trou ble. Of course, there are diseases which cannot be cured, but such dis orders as rheumatism, gout, neuralgia, lumbago, backache, sciatica, blood dis orders, anaemia, indigestion, bilious ness, jaundice, sick headache, general debility, gravel, stone and bladder troubles, arising, as th...

WOMEN WHO BOSS. [Newspaper Article] — Talbot Leader — 3 January 1914

. WOMEN WHO BOSS. Woman has every right to be Inde- ; pendent, but the moment she becomes t "bossy' she loses her charm. A woman's strongest weapon is j gentleness, and the wise woman knows ! it. i The average man can be led, but i he is very apt to baulk when driven. If you must have your own way, get it by gentle, not by sledge-hammer methods. No man likes to feel that he is a cypher in his. own house. Woman has her own domain, and it is quite right that she should be the queen of it, but when she also wants, to be king, prime minister, and entire cabinet, she is over-stepping her bounds. There is nothing very lovable about the woman who always wants to lead j in everything. You don't feel, like j putting your arm about her or giving , her a loving little pat every time you pass her. ! And as for telling her your secrets, : you never dream of that. * She will . give you advice ad libitum; and, j what's more, she will insist that you take it, which is very tiresome. We often ask fo...

There are always many in our hos pitals and homes for the poor, at this festive season of the year, who by reason of their infirmities, are unable to enter into the usual round of festivities aad sports. It is therefore Cduse for con gratulation that there are those who year after year devote a portion of their time, substance and energies in minis tering to these unfortunates, and in a measure making their Christinas a happy one as far as circumstances will permit.
