THE SCHOOLMASTER ABROAD [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911
THE SCHOOLMASTER ABROAD Considering tlio number of public schools and other educational estab lishments in Australia, the quantity ot bad grammar spolten and written in the country is marvellous. I was asked the other day, by letter, for a "quotation"' for an article I had for sale. Now, to "quote" is to cite. One may "quote'' from an author; one mny even "quote" from his own price list; but one can't, without violating the English language; . substitute the word "quote" for the word "price." Every day are business persons asked for a "quotation," and tho usual reply is: "Our quotation" is, etc. It is demonstrably wrong to ask for a "quota* tion." What should bo asked for, hero, is tho "price." "Much less"- is frequently misused for "much more." In tho newspaper of the day, as also in books, oven by the best authors, this blunder is frequently per petrated. When 0110 says of another, "Ho won't pay part of his account, much less tho whole of it," he commits the blunder of making the ...

THE WORLD WILL KEEP A WOMAN YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911
THE WORLD WILL KEEP A ' WOMAN 'YOUNG. It hag been held that women look old and faded at nn ngc when men nrc in their prime. This no longer holds, at least, not ?with those women who are self-sustaining, or, having happy homes, are also interested in matters outside the home and them Belvcs (says " The Delineator" for May). But it obviously is true of those who settle down to a humdrum life, confining it within four walls ; such ns an only daughter who sacrifices herself in devotion to a parent, and grows old long before her time. Get, in the van with the young people, and adopt their gait. This is the surest " Klixir of Life." A celebrated phjsician in a notable address advised his hearers (many of them old fogios) to "walk with tht! boys," meaning that if they wanted to keep abreast of the times, and do their best, they must march with the advance guard " or be irrevocably lost." Contact with the world, instead of age ing, animates a woman ; it puts new life into her ; it rubs off ...

HOPE FOR EVERY WOMAN'S LOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911
HOPE FOR EVERY WOMAN'S LOOKS. No woman is so hopeless that she cannot be improved. Few women in middle life realise the value of dressing the hair suit ably ; for instance, a tall, statuesque woman observed the other evening, wore a mass of puffs and coils on top of,, her Iieud -she Would have looked ad classic ac the Venus of Jlilo, and 20 years younger, had she parted it in the middle and woi>n it low. Then, why will some women ac centuate. their age with colours that only gennin'! youth can carry '! An old lady in gay plumage is a pitiable sight, and the middle-aged woman who neglects herself, wears sombre colours and is indifferent fo . the effect she produces upon others, is just as guilty, if not more so, of a breach of good manners and good taste.-" The De lineator."
THE WOMAN WHO LAUGHS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 February 1911
THE WOMAN WHO LAUGHS. "You can trust your happiness with, a woman who laughs," once said a wit. Though the assertion may seem like a sweeping one, founded, on a very airy basis, there is much more truth in it tliun appears on the surface. An honest laugh is the enemy of subter fuge, and, the woman who can s:e tho ridiculous side of the annoying happenings of everyday life will not become the dismal, tiresome companion that the pessimistic individual is so apt to prove. Somehow one feSTs instinctively that they can trust a person who has laughing eyes., whose mouth is over ready to &lt;Kitiple into smiles, and' whose disposition tends to brightness rather than depression. Loud, meaningless laughter is as bad as the cackling giggle emanating from a shallow mind, and is an evidence of lack of breeding, but the spontaneous low, happy little laugh, teeming with enjoyment of the moment, and backed by a nature pure and lovable, is a charm in woman as attractive as a lovely face -or...
