A "Fowl" Stroke. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914
A "Fowl" Stroke. Fittingly clad in Norfolk suit antd hop-scotch stockings, Lofter 'Greeie 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 been 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!"

HOW WOMEN LOSE HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914
HOW WOMEN LOSE HEALTH. Said a physician:-"I wonder that women fail to appreciate how _much nervous force as well as thysicat strength they consume in worryiig over the little things of life. L9&rk at the mother ana housewife as -she goes about her taos, and obser·h6w often she utters n impatient ev.lam ation, how. often \she starts. neP ous ly at a noise from one of the children. And each time that she loses control over herself,, her nerves, her temper, she loses just a little nervous force, just a little physical well-being, and moves a.- fraction of an inch farther on in the path. that leads to pre mature old age and to invalidism." Constant laughter is no sure sign of a happy nature; more often than not it is only a sign of good teeth.
WOMEN WHO BOSS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914
WOMEN WHO BOSS. Woman has every right to be Inde pendent, but the moment she becomes "bossy' she loses her charm. A woman's strongest weapon is gentleness, and the wise woman knows?' it. The average man can be led, but 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 ab6ut the woman who always wants to. lead in everything. You don't feel like 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, ' what's more, she will insist that you take it, which is very tiresome. We often ask for advice which we have no ...

Macarthur Mems. (From a Correspondent).

"A Man of Straw." [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914
'" ' Man of Straw." The phrase " a man of straw " had its origin in England at a time when men might easily be pro cured to furnish evidence upon oath in almost any emergency. It appears that persons of this des cription were accustomed to walk openly in Westminster Hall-with a strbw projecting from their shoes, thus signifying that they sought employment as witnesses ; hence the expression. An advo cate who desired a convenient witness knew by this .sign where to find one, and the colloquy be tween the two was brief. ' Don't you remember?" the advocates would ask. The party would glance at the fees and give no sign, but when the fee was in creased his powers of memory were increased with it, and straw shoes went into court and swore as desired.
