How To Manage a Husband. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 3 August 1899
How Td Manage a Utisiiaiiti : Domestic harmony is the cement of the family tie, and the principle of the family is the root of civilisation. Therefore, any thing that may tend to promote consononce in the home'may be of infinite sociological yal ue. Hence, apology is .unneceBsary for. introducing to our readers some remarks by Grace Atherton on ?? The Art of Manag ing Your Husband,' since they so evidently embody experience, observation and a leaven' of logic. These qualities are calculated to make advice sound and render it acceptable, ??p. promoting the sociological ; end' we have, indicated, f :. ? '??-? « ?-'?? The authoress tells us: — 'There are two waye of managing a husband. One) is by muscular and the other by mental force. Few wifes can utilise the first; therefore the mayority of women mast think out the solution of the problem, 'What shall be done with a .husband ? ' for themselves. ?

Billiard Tournament. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 3 August 1899
Billiard Tournament. .Farther matches have been played in con nection with, the Royal -Hotel Billiard Tournament. J. Usher, 10, beat H.Flanagan, 60, by 17 ; J. Orbell, 50 behind, beat L. Hope, 10, by 66; W. Loughuan, ? 50, beat R. Wells, 65,. by 41. Tho first of thene matches provided a splendid contest, the competitors keeping well together, and both playing remarkably well. This will pro bably , prove to be tho game of the first ronnd. The match between J. Orbell and L. Hope attracted very great attentiou, there being' a :papked room, but play was disappointing inasmuch as Orbell playing really well, caught his opponent— who was favored with rio'lu'ck— before he had scoied more than nine or ten. Thenceforward the game was a procession, although Hope played well at times. The highest break was 28, by the winner. Mr. Loughnan beat R. Welbj rather easily at the end, though at first there appeared to be a likelihood of a close contest.
Our Land Laws. SUGGESTED AMENDMENTS IN C.P. AND C.L. LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 3 August 1899
« ur l*aiid L,awe. SUG&ESTED AMENDMENTS IN C.P. ANDC.L. LAW. The difficulties of conditional purchasers whoso lauds are of inferior quality of late years has been so keenly accentuated by 'a drought of almost unparalleled severity, that it is evident that any concessions that they are reasonably entitled to ask of the Crown ?uuuiu' uu lunger uu mmuuiu, especially where it can be shown that much can be done towards relieving the position of these settlers .not only without damage, but with actual advantage to tlio, Crown. The Land Act of 1861 provided that 75 per cent, of the ?capital price of all lands selected bear inter est to the Crown at 5 per cent, in perpetuity ; but the Land Act of 1S75 inaugurated the system^ of paying off these balances by in stalments, and gave permission to selectors under the prior act to bring their selections under the altered system.

Butter Making. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 3 August 1899
Butter Making. We think it is about time the Wellington farmers took up the matter of butter mak ing in a practical way. The previous attempt at running a butter factory in Wel lington was a failure, when formed into a company, (because nobody had supreme control), but a success when run by one individual. The grass Hats on the rivers m the Wellington district are capable of feed ing an immense number of cows, and all we want is the proper breed of cattle ; for butter-making. Any cow will not do, and the in-breeding carried on so extensively in this district has almost rendered useless the cattle we now have, at least for the purpose mentioned. There are some laudable excep tions among our farmers, and some good herds are being used at the present time for butter making, but we need good men to take the matter up in a systematic manner. There is little use going into the matter of the profit made in such an in dustry, as that has been settled long ago. Many farmers in other district...

Why Women have Ugly Necks [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 3 August 1899
Why Women have Ugly Necks The reason why pretty necks and throats are much rarer possessions among women nowadays than they were fifty or Bixty years ago is that for many years past it has been the fashion to wear high stiff collars, fasten ed tightly round the throat. Tight collars cause the neck to hfipntno vnllnw. nnri tlin j akin to become prematurely wrinkled and Daggy- A graceful carriage of the neck . is also impossible when a high close collar is worn.

MY NOTE BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 3 August 1899
MV NOTE BOOK, (By Chew Sltme'). The great 'Bob.' Ingorsoll is dead,— ' may he rest in peace.' This may seem to tome people a wish which tihould not be ex pressed, because the great free-thioking orator and writer was not a believer in the tenets of any church or creed. But it is better to wibIi that he may be well treated after death. Many have their private opinions on the matter, and very decided opinions too, and will say without hesitation that ?- Bob ' has gone to hell. He was a good-living man in private life, and nothing was ever charged against his character', even by the free-speaking American press. He bad a kink in his mind, or else he took free-thought up in an idle moment and kept it up aB.a matter of bravado. Which ever it wbb, he died aa he had lived, and 'he gave no sign at the end of (foing back on his lifelong pro fessions, We common' people— the average of mankind — may differ from him (and moBt of us do, thank goodneee), but we cannot help admiring a man, no matt...
