Solemn Truth. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 20 June 1914
Solemn Truth. "My efforts to keep a diary con vince me of one thing." "What's that?" "That there are mighty few days in the year on which a man does any thing really worth recording." Friendship can sometimes show its strength as much by the readiness with which it accents benefits as iby the freedom with which it gives them. It proves by this its confidence in the love of the other side. Life, upon the "whole, is much more pleasurable, than painful, otherwise we should "not feel pain so impatient ly when it comes.

WOMAN'S WORLD. WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 20 June 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. WHAT AM I REALLY LIKE. It is a strange but undeniable fact that most people hardly e>\er hear their own voices. You may think that this sounds absurd, for you will sup pose that you can't help hearing your self when you are constantly speak ing. But you will realise thai it is true if you remember what a shock it is to you, when you happen to be speaking in a roomful of talking peo ple, and they all suddenly ?top talk ing, leaving your voice going on alone. A thing of this kind gives you a great, start, because the voice sounds so strange and unfamiliar. It is also a very great surprise to hear yourself mimicked. You are al most certain to exclaim, "Wiio is that meant for?" and other people who are present will laugh and say, "Why, it is exactly like you—don't you re cognise it?" and then you rrallfee how deaf to your own voice you have been tor many years You never see your own face ei ther, except in a photograph ,and that is why a photograph is always some thing...

If meals are Ill-cooked and badly served. if two young people rush into matri mony, they take upon themselves all the burden of married life when too young to realise the responsibility of it. If the income, though well managed and made the most of, cannot cover the expenditure. If the husband be; a faddy, fidgetty man, perpetually prying into house hold matters, and if he thinks he knows more about them than anybody else. If both parties are absolutely re solved to see only the worst side of each other's character. If the husband tries to be mistress as well as master of the house, or the wife master as well as mistress of the house. If, when dark days come, husband and wife forget they took each other for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer. If the wife is totally ignorant of even the rudiments of domestic econ omy, and thinks more of her dress t...
