FROM THE HIGHLANDS OF SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 14 July 1914

' FROIW THE HIGHLANDS OF SCOTLAND. In a Scottish town not long ago a crowd bad gathered before a large glass window fronting on the street They were attracted by a magnilicunl white-headed eagle, which was held a prisoner inside the window. There was a chain from its Tight foot to a huge piece of iron, some water in a pan, an untouched piece of fish, a few sode, and a large card with the words "For Sale." The big bird's wings dropped to its feet on either side. Its eyes were glazed and dim. It opened and shut now and then, but never once turned them to the jostling, noisy crowd that stood just outside tl'f glass. Suddenly a young farmer, who had just come to town, pushed his way to the front, and for a long time looked silently at the great, helpless bird. He was sure he had seen it before. It had been captured, he learned, from what some of the crowd said; in the county from which he had come. That settled it. It was the same bird. He had seen it on the moun tain where he sometimes...

WOMAN'S INFLUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 14 July 1914

WOMAN'S INFLUENCE. Ab a rule the whole tone of a home depends upoii the woman at the head of it—the average home, not the pov erty-stricken home, nor the wealthy home, in this average home, whether sunshine shall enter the rooms, wheth er tlie drawing-room shall be used and enjojMii, whether the table shall he invitingly spread, whether light and bright fires shall give warmth and cheer on wintei-v-nights—whether in brief, the home shall be an agree able or disagreeable place, is usually what the woman determines. Men are powerless in the matter. Some find solace for a dismal home in study, some occupation in business. Some 'jubmit with what patience they can. Others-are attracted by the cheer of 'heir clubs, and It is especially young Tien who are apt in consequence to ■rift into bad company and had habits.

LOVE, THE MASTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 14 July 1914

LOVE, THE MASTER. Let there be no question of suprem acy, nothing of the style "I'm master here; or, please to recollect I am the mistress of this house," with newly married couplcs. When a young couple arrange to enter on a new lite together, and run in double harness, each should be too careful of the other's feelings to hurt them In the smallest lota. That there should always be a rec ognised head to every household goes without saying; no true woman would : dispute this; tor the reins of govern ment are not exactly her province, end a woman naturally loves a man who can hold his own. True, she liltes to feel that she can manage h.'m in certain things; that he usually refers to her, comes round to her way of thinking In the end; but, on the oilier hand, no woman likes to see her husband too easily swayed. Women juefer, as a rule, the man who acts liis ii:wt as master; it takes away a great responsibility from thelr shoulders, and no woman,"unless she • oe'or n'-sir.™pely domlfice...

THE VANITY OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 14 July 1914

(HE VANITY OF WOMEN.' As a sex. women have become used a being called vain; it is so usual a jrm that one scarcely stays to qual .fy it, yet there is vanity, and vanity, • lie wisdom "l which is entirely gov erned bv the use or misuse of the same. An uncultivated mind never reali ses the depths of pettiness it can de scend to, or how paitry vanity, that is in no way governed by common-sense, may appear. Vanity, as the average woman un ilerslauds the word, means the pleas ure she takes in the knowledge of her own particular attractions, together with all the feminine prettiness adopt ed to set herself off to the best advan tage. There is, naturally, in most wo men an inborn love of the beautiful, an artistic instinct that petitions for •soft laces, delicate tints, and flowing draperies. When stern economy pro vides only humdrum Iinsey-wolseys, "utout" boots "useful" millinery, all of •fliich are invariably so ugly, it ii more probable that a woman's sense of beauty is injured, than m...

TATONG. The departure from the district of- yet another family another for •New South Wales provides food for thought. The occurrence is now almost daily, and Victoria is losing the very people she ought to strive to retain. However, whilst we have a niggardly, cheese-paring Conservative Government, closer settlement may as well he given a go-by. Mrs. Buibbsand her family will find a welcome across the border, and ibey suiely have the hest wishes of those they have lefi behind them. The balance-sheet fcr the last Tatong Sports Ins been presented, and shows a small credit balance, which, considering various experi ments 'by the committee must be considered satisfactory. A movement is 011 foot to charter a special train (we speak bie now we have a railway) to give the country children a party at Betialla. It was something akin to sorrow to see the disappointment of the local lads oti the opening day. Indeed it could hardly be'credited there are "old" children in the district who have ...
