MEN WOMEN LIKE. QUALITIES MASCULINE PERSONS SHOULD CULTIVATE. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 10 January 1914
MEN WOMEN LIKE. QUALI?~ES MASCULINE PERSONS SHOULD CULTIVATE. Although woman may all admire the herculean type of male, it is a good thing-considering how few and far between these types are-that they can admire other types, or spinsters would be more plentiful than they already are. While it is quite safe to say that all women admire big men, all wo men-luckily for the small men-do not set the big men up as their ideal. Between admiration and love a gulf is fixed. Little men oftfn bridge the gulf and step in where big men fear to tread. Every woman, at heart, admires tile man who is aulda,:iios, ijust as every woman admires the man who can master her. To give a case in point: WINNING THE BELLE. A certain belle of a town in the Midlands was renowned for her con quests over the opposite sex : but she refused all her suitors, and in time obitained a certain notoriety as the maid who could not be won. There came, one day, a new resIdeut to the to n.. He was not tall, noi tlher as Ihe h...

ICEBERGS. DREADED PERIL OF THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 10 January 1914
ICEBERGS. 4c- - DREADED PERIL OF THE SEA. That dreaded- peril of the sea-the iceberg-which proved "so disastrous tI the Titanic, has been responsible for the loss of many ships and lives, though, everything considered, the loss of vessels on account of ice is not nearly so great as might rea sonably be expected. Still, there have been many serious casualities. The sea-lane off the Newfoundland Grand Bank, when the ice is be ginning to break up in the Arctic and comes south, is menaced by a vast chain of icebergs, whose length is es timated at anything up to seventy miles, with a breadth of thirty-five. The bergs are frequently of vast size-veritable islands-on which a ship, even of such enormous propor tions as the Titanic, would crumple like paper. Only one-eighth of the bergs is above water ; the rest is submerged. And when it is remem bered that bergs miles in length and with peaks many hundred feet above water have been seen, the terrible danger of these floating, unsuspect ing ...
