"The boy was her son; I will not see 1 her again."

NEW YEAR'S DAY CUSTOMS [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 10 March 1914

NEW YEAR'S DAY CUSTOMS It is surprising how many quaint customs and beliefs concerning New Now Year's Day still survive In out oMhe-way places (says "The Westmin ster Gazette"). One of the oldest cus toms, which originated in ancient Rome, is tire giving of presents. This custom nourished at the English Court until the seventeenth century, and still exists In Scotland. A strange belief In some parts of the country is that no washing must be done on Now Tear's Day for fear of washing some member of the family out of existence during the ensuing year. From Cornwall comes a supcrstitltion which tells how to ensure a plentiful supply of money. On New Year's Eve a coin is placed outside upon the window-sill and must not be taken in until the New Year; money will then continue to come in all the year. (It is not advisable to put your coin on the sill of a ground-floor win dow, or money may go out instead of « coming in!) i

She has to be always on the alert, and from the time she goes on duty till she comes off it's one constant strain—and if she is in charge of a big ward she is kept on her feet so much that sometimes she feels just ready to drop. I find a cup of "Robur" tea before I go on duty, and another after I come off keeps me right —I prefer the "Robur" to any other tea because it is pure, and because I've found it most refreshing—but there, you'll know all about it yourself when you try it—The No. 1 Grade is the tea you should get Th* Nurse.
