Got a Job. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912
Got a Job. There is a true story of a young woman who had devoted almost a year to using all possible influence to gain an interview with a certain theatrical manager. At last her hopes were re alised. She got her appointment, and she was finally ushered into the man ager's private office. He received her most cordially and offered her a chair. 'Thank you,' she said, gracefully. 'I think I will sit down. I've been just ten months getting here and I m a little tired.' And the manager, who is really a great man, and hence has a sense of humor, promptly engaged her. Cocoanuts from the Malay Penin sula sometimes produce pearls not -unlike those found in oysters,- and are higtily prized by the natives. The cocoanut pearl is believed by the Ma lays to possess some charm, but it does not enter into competition with the oyster pearl as a jewel. Canada, the largest British posses sion, is nearly four million square miles in area. Gibraltar, the smallest, measures less than two squares miles....

An Impressive Arrival. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912
An Impressive Arrival. A smaft wedding was to be solem nised in a fashionable church, and a crowd of well-dressed people were watching the guests arrive. In the wake of a succession of the most aristocratic equipages came a four-wheeler, dingy and disreputable beyond belief. ! 'Wore h ere ' aimed the* nnlice man in charge. 'You can't pull ups here. We're waiting for the bishop.' The cabman regarded the officer with a triumphant leer, as he climbed down and threw a ragged blanket over his skeleton steed. 'It's all right, guv'nor,' he said. 'I've got the old buffer in here.'
No Use Getting Excited. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 31 May 1912
No Use Getting Excited. There were several people in the shop when the stranger entered, and so he addressed them at large. 'Any of you drive up here in a trap?' 'Yes,' said Farmer Crabbe, 'I did. Why?' 'An old grey horse in the trap.' 'Yes; but — — ' 'I suppose she can manage the .old 1LU1SC3 i 'Rather; I just think she could! Why, she's drove him since he was a two-year-old.' 'Oh,' said the stranger, 'then it s all right. I merely asked because the grey has started up the street like a scarified mad bullock, and the old lady's hanging on to ttie back of the trap, screaming 'Murder!' Still, if she can manage him, of course there's no use getting excited over it. How's the price of taters down your way?' A Scotch minister and his fnena, coming from a wedding, began to consider the state in which their po tations had left them. 'Sandy,' said the minister, 'just stop, a minute till I go ahead. Per haps I don't walk steady and the guid wife might remark something not right.' ? ' - He w...

Quick Repentance. Giles, having screwed up courage to take Mary for a drive, and the excur sion proving an exceptionally enjoy able one, lost his head for a moment or two. 'Mary,' he asked, 'will, you ma,rry me?' 'Yes, Giles,' she answered softly. Giles lapsed into a silence that at length became painful to his fiancee. 'Giles,' she said desperately, 'why don't you say something?' 'I think,' Giles replied, 'there has been too much said already!'
BROOM HANDLES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 7 June 1912
BROOM HANDLES. This is a short chapter on house hold thrift, as recently observed in the establishment of a Avoman who manages to find use for many things that most women throw away. As a rule the life of the broom is no longer than that of the bristles. This ingenious woman has found var ious uses for the broom long after the bristles have reached the stage of the superannuated whisk brush. ? In the first place, she is not a strong believer in the teachings of the house hold calisthenic advocate who main tains that the' stooping necessary to the use of a dust-pan in the ordinary way is excellent for the digestion. So she saws off the handle of the worn out broom and fits it into the handle of thedustpan, thereby making it pos sible to use that household necessary without reaching to the floor or as suming the attitude of a Mohamme dan at prayer. It is necessary to bend the handle of the dustpan a little before fitting the broom handle into the hollow handle of the pan. The dustpan ...

A FAST-WALKING HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 7 June 1912
A FAST-WALKING HORSE. recognising the fact that the fast walker is always desirable, and more valuable than any other, the question is how to secure this trait in all the colts.' There must ever be. differences in speed, no matter whether walking, trotting or running; but these are each largely matters of education, and it is to this we would call attention. t„ first r»l q tVie must b6 got bridle-wise as early as possible, and the earlier this is attempted the easier for both owner and animal, wnen fully under control, the harness should be gradually added, and the use^f the reins in guiding in every direction. This work cannot be too thorough or systematic, for here is the foundation for the future. He should be made to go in every way at the will of the driver. This much gained, the walking gait comes next. The -aim must be to en courage the natural action in walking, ?=. without allowing the colt to trot. If this is attempted, bring to a full stop at once and begin again. In this...

Preparation for Arbor Day. By Kathleen Galway, Giade VII. Arbor Day is celebrated on 5th July and it is set apart fcr the planting ot trees. Every school in Victoria, plants trees about the school for the ornamental purposes and for the com fort of little children who b&ve started school 6iuce we who planted them have left.

Arbor is a latin word mean ing tree and so this is how we came to have' Aibor Day.'

THE VALUE OF PERFUMES. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 7 June 1912
THE VALUE OF PERFUMES. Most of us look on scent as an ex travagance. There are few women who are not fond of such perfumes, but all too many who feel they can not indulge. Yet scent is not always the extravagance it would seem, for it has a real value as regards health. When an epidemic is raging a scent laden handkerchief may often save one from falling a victim to it. Al most all scents have some antiseptic oualities which are particularly good. Tuere is a great deal said and writ ten for and against the use of per fumes, but a side of the question which is seldom touched upon is the fact that perfumes have certain medicinal . values. The ancients recognised this, and one of the Latin writers has put more than a hundred different scents on record which are remedies for dis ease. Among these the violet has a more important place than any other flower. But it is essential that the es sence should be pure and made from the flower. The idea which our grandmothers had of scenting the s...

THE CURSE OF DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 7 June 1912
THE CURSE OF DRESS. By Rita. The cult of dress has degenerated into a slavish obedience to certain laws — laws dictated by A hidden tyrant named Fashion. Whov Fashion is, where it abides, who has granted it plenary absolution for all its follies and crimes no one seems to know! Certainly, it seems strange that an unknow force should possess arbi trary powers far exceeding those ., of visible sovereignty. But it seems more ahsnrd tn ninfnrfi whole races or sets of mankind and womankind ruled by an unknown somebody who is responsible for hid eous travesties of shape, form and col or in their attire, who makes them slaves to a whim or a whisper, and too frequently turns them into piti able objects of discomfort, inelegance and* imitation. The folly of dress and the worship of dress have called forth satire, ridi cule and abuse from the cynics of past centuries up to the present time. That clothing is necessary we all al low; but who has decreed- that the useful or simple elegancies of ...
