HOW WOMEN LOSE HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 2 January 1914
HOW WOMEN LOSE HEALTH. Said a physician:—"I wonder that women fail to appreciate how much nervous force us well as physical strength they consume in worrying ovor the little things of life. Look at the mother and housewife as she goes about her tasks, and observe how ol'ten she utters an impatient exclam ation, how often she starts nervous* 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, aud moves a fraction of an inch farther on in the path that leads to pre mature old age aud to invalidism,"

A SECRET SERVICE By FRED M. WHITE. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co., Melbourne. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER XXXVII. The Letters. Kuporra glanced keenly at the two men on tho other side of the table, ne regarded them as specimens un der the microscope, as if ho were an eminent scientist examining some now specimen. "Tell me," he asked, "have either of you ever Inspected this coat before?" Avis shrugged his shoulders sullen ly, while Vanstone did not appear to comprehend the question. "Let me aBsure you," the Baron trent on, "that It will pay you a great deal better to bo candid. You wero particularly anxious to find those let ters.

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 2 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. N'o sermon is too long for the wo man with n new hat. What a piece of woik is man. What a Piece of fancy-v/nrk 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 iB charming to be alwayB smiling, but such people as a rule live in men tal hospitals. When a woman meeta a man half way he begins to think it is time for him to turn back. The men v/ho think that money can do anything will probably do any thing for money. A big fist cau bruise tiu eye, but not for so long ac a H'tle dimple can bruise a man's heart. You may faee financial ruin, death, illness, oven gaol with calmness, but the tlcklo of a persistent fly—never. The sleop of the just may be Bweet, bu...
Simply a Grindstone. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 2 January 1914
Simply a Grindstone. The boarding-houso was one fre quented by locomotive drivers and firemen, but there was one boarder not connected with the railway com* pany. He happened to be aa engineer, and the boastful bragging of the en gine-drivers as to their speed and so on got on his nerves. . After a time the engineer became tired of hearing of the feats of train driving, and one night he broke into the usual conversation. - "I went over and saw a new ma chine we've got at our place," he ro marked, "and It's astonishing how U works." "And how does it work?" asked a pompous express-driver. "Well, by means of a pedal attach ment, a fulcrumed lever converts a ; vertical reciprocating motion in' » a ! circular movement. The principal i par: of the machine is a huge disc that revolves in a vertical plane. "Power is applied through the axis of the disc, and work is done on the periphery, and the hardest steel, by mere impact, m3y be reduced to any shape." "And what is this wonderful ma. chi...

WIT AND HUMOR. Surprised the Speaker. Thin, angular, and Bpinsterlsh, Miss Miggs strode through the streeta of the little village rounding up tho housewives to come to to-night's meet ing of the "Hopeful Society" on "How Husbands Should he Fed.". • .. The little hall was fairly fun by | eight o'clock, when Miss Miggs, with her select committee of old maidu, pranced on to the platform and began" her oration. Not much inspiration was *o be gained from the audience.' A little human touch is what is needed, thought Miss Miggs to herself, to en liven the proceedings. Putting on her' oest imitation of a smile, she advanced to the front of the platform. "So many of you women." she start ed, "are not sympathetic enough with your husbands. Ncr.v," sho simpered, "if I had a husband and he came home i —er—late, I should not rave at him, | out simply go and kiss him." "And srrve the brute right!" yelled a retreating form at the back of th* j hall.

Driving It Home. A- mail walking into a restaurant left the door wide open. A big mail eating his lunch immediately yelled: "Shut the door, you fool. Where were you brought up—>in a stable?" The man who had left the door open closed it, and then, dropping into a seat, buried his face in his hands and began to weep. The tig man looked somewhat un comfortable, and, finally rising, walked up to the weeper and tapped him on the shoulder. • "My' friend," he said, "I didn't in tend to hurt your feelings. I only wanted you to close the door." The man who was weeping raised his head and grinned. "Old man," he said, 4Tm not crying because you hurt my feelings, but be cause you ask if 1 was brought up in a stable, The fact is that I was raised iu a stable, and every time I hear aa ass bray it makes me home-sick
Easier to Remember. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 2 January 1914
Easier to Remember. The Rev. Henry Ward Beecher had ! a rather defective memory at times." ] When he was making the announce ! ments for the coming week on© Sun* | day he wanted to intimate that he i would not be the preacier on the fol ; lowing Sunday, and-that the pulpit ; would be occupied by his son-in-law, ! the Rev.

"In addition to the notices just read," he announced, "I desire to say that I shall not be preaching here next Sabbath, and the pulpit will be occupied by—by—the pulpit will be occupied by—by—by " i After he had stammered for a few \ seconds he tried again. "I shall not ; be here next Sabbath, and the ! preacher will be—will be—be " | Here he broke off with a touch of ex i asperation: "Why, I know him quite ; well. You all know him. He married my daughter! Oh, I remember!" ■ And he proceeded gravely: "Sam will preach here next Sabbath."

Echoes of the Opera. "What ilia you hear at the opera?" inquired Mrs. Sanders, when her hus band returned from London. "You wrote me Mary was going to have a box full of friends last night." "She did so," said Mr. Sanders. "Well, let me see. I heard that the young man Henry's oldest girl is en gaged to has two thousand pounds salary, and that he'll never save a penny of it after he marries her. And I heard that if Mrs. Leonard doesn't at tend to her son before it's too late he won't have a friend left among either i the young fellows or the girlB. I "Then I heard something about ! skirts; kind of uncertain talk that was, and I couldn't make much of it; and then there was a full account of somebody's wedding and the presents. I didn't catch the name, but 'twasn't anybody we know. "I heard one real pretty piece o£ mu sic sung by a lady and gentleman. I couldn't see them on account of Mary and her two friends being in front with their heads close together, but two of them singing toget...

In a Jungle. j "Officer," snapped the magistrate, J "what made you think the prisoner . was intoxicated?" 1 "Well, your honor," replied the con | stable, "as he was going along the ! pavement he ran plump into a lamp . post." | "Well?" "He backed away, replaced his hat on the back of his head, and firmly started forward again, but once more ran into the lamp-post. Four times he j tried to get past the post, but each time his uncertain steps took him plump into the iron pole.'' "What happened then, my man?" "After the fourth attempt and fail ure to pass the post, he clutched his head despairingly and sank to the pavement, murmuring, in the most hopeless manner: 'Lost—lost in an impenetrable forest!'"
CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 9 January 1914
CULTIVATION AND BACTERIA. Proper cultivation of the soil in creases the nitrifying bacteria, and this, in turn, increases productive ness—a most important consideration to tho farmer. The knowledge of bac toria and their work is recent and limited; there are many in kind, and in spite of the amount of work done, scientists are only in the midst of fhoir discovery. Tho practical far mer does well to let bacteriologists monopolise interest in the whole subject, except in so far as lie can provide some conditions that have been demonstrated to be profitable. The work of bacteria, hoever, must come more and more into considera tion by tho farmer, because Nature uses them to produce a vast amount of the change that is going on around us, iu the consideration of tho na ture of legumes, wo must take into account tho bacteria which tlioy have associated with them, and through which they obtain the atmospheric nitrogen. It is true that bacteria must have favorable conditions that our plants ...

He hur ried down to the friend's lawyers. "Why, Jack is the dearest, kindest, most houcst man iu the world!" he said. "You must call mo as a wit ness to his character." "Not while I'm nis lawyer!" was the reply. "1 know just what would happen. The other man's lawyer would ask your occu pation. And you'd say, Tm a writer oi' Ilotion.' And the lawyer would get up and stand over you and look into the dark recesses of your heart for a time. And by-anu-by, despairing of finding one sweet, aspiring thought in you, ho would turn to the jury. And ho would exchange an intelli gent, liberrous smile with the twelve. And then ho would sit down, and, without even troubling to look in your direction, he would say, 'That is quite enough, Air. Cobb! You may stand down!'"

THE DARKEST HOUR. By M. I. Douglas. I. In a third-lloor buck room of a dis mal Pimllco lodging house a groy hair ed, haggard looking man was seated in an uncomfortable chair, placed near tho window, from which ho wan watching Tor some expected arrival who was long ui coming. The grato was guiltless of lire, and the only light came from the Hlrcct lamp outside. The door of the. small cupboard in t.io wall was wide open -and empty, as was also the coal scuttle, while the man's purs:: did not contain a single farthing. Kvcn a casual observer 'would have seen at a glance that, things had reached a desperate stage, and that only !> miracle could avert one of those awful tragedies of poverty which although of frequent occurrence, rare ly find their way into the daily pap ers to harrow the feelings of affluent readers. The clocks jn tho neighborhood struck seven. Presently there was the sound of a light footslep coming upstairs; a second later the door open ed and a girl came in. "Dad,"...
TO SWEETEN THE BREATH. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 9 January 1914
TO SWEETEN THE BREATH. Children should be taught to use a tooth-brush and some good dentrifico after every weal, and especially be fore going to bed at night. There are few things more offensive than an un* pleasant breath, and few things easier to avoid, if proper care is given the teeth. Ono of the cheapest and most eueciLve deatritlcea lo common table salt, and if used with a good brush re gularly very little else will be needed. There are many deutrifices in the mar ket at reasonable prices, and many of them are very good, but some of them are harmful, and it is well to make one's own dentrifice. If the gums are tender and iucliued to bleed easily, select a brush adapted to their tender condition, and do not give them excessive friction. Your dentist will tell you & preparation for hardening the gums without harming them. There are some gums eo tender that a hard brush injures them. The teeth should be brushed downward from both sides of the upper teeth, and up* ward fro...
