THE LATEST IN FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
THE LATEST IN FASHIONS. It seems quite certain that, although we are prepared to welcome the fuller skirt, look with equanimity on the full bodice, and allow the arbiters of fashion to place our waistline where they will, nothing will in duce the woman of to-day to even think serr iously of the tight waist, hour glass effect that was so popular some years ago. The swathed belt or some equally fascinating arrangements in the way of a sash will be the complement of the waistyne in the new est frocks, and, having this in veiw, odd lengths of broad ribbon, pieces of brocade, velvet silk, and carmeuse — especially if cut on the cross— will be invaluable as bands, sashes, and waist trimmings. No style of dress has lent itself to ' trimmings more readily than upon which we are just enter ing, and odd lengths of lace and net, as well as ribbon and silk, are most useful, as they can so often1 be used for blouses, vests, and slips of all sorts. Speaking of collars io minds us that the old han...

A REALLY CLEVER GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
A REALLY CLEVER GIRL. A clever girl is not of necessity a learned girl; just the happy possessor of much tact and common sense. She acts like hot water on -tea— extracts the beat from everybody. She always smoothes any awkward situa tion, so that no one is at a disadvantage. She is one whose ability is never un nleasantlv felt bv the rest of the world around her. She acknowledges her neigh bor's right to live, and does not think her own concerns and ideas of supreme im portance. She is at ease in any place and :among any people; and because she is kind as well as clever, she manages to make the world a much happier place simply that :she lives in it.
THE ONE WHO STAYS AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
THE ONE WHO STAYS AT HOME. The one who stays at home, the girl or woman— wife, mother, sister, or daughter — who nets as housekeeper, and sees the breadwinner depart to his daily toil each morning. Does she always realise all that lies in her hands, and guess that mainly on her depends the way in which the worker faces the world? The girl who has been a breadwinner herself learns many things in the hard school of experience.. She knows how endless are the anxieties, how constant ' the trials and disappointments of all busi nesses, and so. when it becomes her good fortune to be the one to stay at home, she lakes care to buckle on her knight's armour and send him happily away and face all that the day may bring, in secure confidence of the cheery understanding welcome that will be his at the end of the day. The one who stays at home can do more than all the nerve tonics in the world for the workers of the household. When the successes and failures of the world come to be measured up, ...

"HOW DO YOU DO?" [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
'HOW DO YOU DO?' In England and in all English speaking countries, when two friends meet, their greetings are simple and short. They shake hands and ask, 'How do you do?' and then engage in general conversation. But in Eastern lands that is not the way. If two friends meet on Palastine or Arabia, for instance, they begin such a long series of movements and salutations that we should almost get tired of watching them It was because of this elaborate way of greeting which wastes so much time, that Jesus told his deciplos when He sent them out 'two by two, 'Salute no man by the way.' He did not mean that' they were to be rude or unfriendly, but that their business was so urgent as to allow no time to be wasted in tedious ceremonies. vvuen an eastern meets a friend ho begins by saying, 'Peace be on you,' to which his friend replies, 'On you be peace, and the mercy of God and his bless ing.' Then each man will incline his body slightly forward, and, raising the right hand will touch his ...

SLACKNESS OF TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
SLACKNESS OF TRADE. Business people are complaining of the great slackness of trade during the last few weeks, and, in view of the fact that em ployment is very brisk all round, to find cause is perplexing. Well, it does not seem far away. Employees have only a limited amount' of spare cash from their earnings, and when there is such a constant and necessary pull on it by the war funds.it must necessarily follow that business must suffer. The cause is compulsory economy.

THE SAVING OF FRANCIS FURBERRY. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
THE SAVING OF FRANCIS FURBERRY. It was a fine and frosty moonlight night when Francis Furberry, a gay young rab bit, went off to skate. He was a famous skater and cut all sorts of wonderful figures on the ice. And he was verv nroud of all the things he could do. Once he even done an addition sum. The answer was all wrong, it is true, but the figures were most beautifully cut in * the ice. In several places there were notices up telling you where you must not skate, for the ice was rather thin. But Francis Fur berry was too good to mind, and just went and sksted where he fancied. After a time he got far away from all the other skaters, and he went on skating on and on over the shiny levels of the ice. Suddenly there was a loud crack like the report of a pistol, and he began to feel the ice giving way beneath him. He tried to skate away to where it was stronger, but it was no good. With a dreadful crash and splash and dash, he sank into the water. Far off, at the other end of the lake...
THE GIANT WHITE GUM TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 14 August 1915
THE GIANT WHITE GUM TREE. , Australia is a land that abounds with won ders, both animal and vegetable, but per haps the greatest wonder of all is the giant white gum tree. Tall and straight and strong, this beautiful tree rises high intc the clear blue sky. Its enormous trunk springs up from the ferns and saplings, and shoots straight into the air. The leaves and branches, struggling to reach the light, do not begin to grow until the summit of the tree is nearly reached. You cannot even see them unless you throw your head back and gaze up at the blue overhead, where the glittering, dancing leaves look like sil ver as the sunlight filters through them. The base of these trees is sometimes so large that a party can comfortably have tea within a hollow trunk. When a tree falls, the noise echoes through the forest like a clap of thunder.

PROBABLE OPPOSITION TO MR. DOOLEY.
