She was not ready to make her appearance, and the duty of entertaining the caller de vclved upon the little brother. "Well, Bobby," began the young man in an effort to make conversation and at the same time to put the in voluntary host at his ease, "does your sister think that I am calling at this house oftener than I am welcome?"

A Vexed Question. There was a wise old botanist; and he was known to fame, Linnacus Cincinnatus Hocus Pocus was his name. His knowledge was stupendous, his wisdom was profound, His learning in botanic fields was something to a tound; But there was one deep question this wiseacre could not solve, Rnd round its puzzling mysteries his mind would e'er revolve; He'd sit within his study .and he'd ponder by the hour; Muttering, "Is a cabbage rose what we may cauliflower?" Nowadays it is a race between kitchen utensils and .-cooks to see 'which "will be renewed the oftener. Single women on an average live longer than single men. i'l·· .,

After Dark the Dawn. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917

After Dark the Dawn. By John J. Armstrong. There were two letters that morn ing for Florrie. As I laid' them by her plate I could not help the little stab of heartache. Flo was pretty and heedless, fond of admiration, and not lacking it. I was just sister Ede, unornamental, but useful, eminently fitted for wifehood, but unsought. An accident when a child had left one side of my face scarred and unsightly. No man look ed at me twice. There were two letters-one from Jim Rogera, who had obeyed the first call, for men; the other from: Herbert Eanks, his friend, equally fit, who had remained behind to secure a 'acage as an indispensable. On her finger my sister wore the engage mcnt ring given to lihe by nianly Jim before his going, and, I confess it without shame, I wanted Jim, too. To him I was just clever Ede, "a girl who would make some lucky chap a splendid wife," but he did not want me; he had thoughts only for my sister. At his going he had drawn me aside to whisper that I should l...

HOW WE SAVED FOR A HOME. A Young Couple Did It in Ninety-five Years. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917

HOW WE SAVED FOR A HOME. A Young Couple Did it in Ninety five Years. How did we do it? Simply by go ing without everything we needed. When I was first married my salary was thirty dollars a month. My mother-in-law, who lived with us, decided to save enough out of my salary to build us a home. When the cellar was finished, I be came ill and lost my position, and had to mortgage the cellar to make my first payment. Although we went without food for thirty days the first year, we never missed a monthly payment. The taxes, interest on mortgage and monthly payment on house were now three times the amount of my earnings. However, by dispensing with the service of a doctor, we lost our father and mother-in-law, which so reduced our expenses that we were able to pay for the parlor floor and win dows. In ten years seven of our nine chil dren died, possibly owing to our diet of excelsior and prunes. I only mention these little things to show how we were helped in sav ing for a home. I wore th...

Government Hotels in the Northern Territory. By Thos. J. McMahon in "Sydney Mail." (From time to time statements have been published reflecting strong ly upon the conduct of the hotels in the Northern Territory, which are owned and run by the Commonwealth Government. In the accompanying article Mr. McMahon supports these charges as the result of personal in vestigation.) One of the most extraordinary fail ures of the Northern Territory has been the working of the hotels by the Commonwealth Government. Not one word can be said in their favor. Senator J. Newlands, a keen Labor supporter, who visited the Territory last year to inquire into conditions tl ere, said in the Senate a little while back that he had seen more drunken men in the hotels of Port Darwin than could be seen in any other part of the Commonwealth. The Senator continued.:-"I have been told that the police refuse to take any notice of them. The guardians of the law have been informed that they cannot lay an information ...

At our entry into the list:phase of the war, in the midst of the omiious lull and silence which precedes it up on both sides, let us take stock. The one prime, eleftent in the calculation -which more and more rapidly is, de ciding all the rest-is the respective weight of numbers and material by land. It is modified, but only modi fled, by the enemy's last efforts upon -cur lengthy and perilous communica tions at sea. As to the land, the general situa tion is now familiar. In the West! the enemy is mastered. On the East he has a permanent and heavy su periority in material countered only' by supply to our Allies by oversea routes. The West is not only superior, but is growing . in superiority. It has more guns, more shells, more rail ways, more rolling stock, more men, more food.. Though these calculable advan tages are modified by difficulties of communication wh...
