Spiteful. "My husband considered a very long time before he proposed to me. He was very careful." "Al, it's always those carefpl peo ple who get taken in!" Time was when there were no look ing-glasses. In those days men grewx long beards and women wore their hair flowing. When the looking-glass came men shaved themselves to dis cover what they were like; and then it was that women began to worry whether their hats were on straight.

WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 14 May 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. NEVER MIND. Sometimes, when nothing goes just right, Alld worry reigns supreme, When heartache fills the eyes with mist, And all things useless seem, There's just one thing can drive away The tears that scald and blild Someolne to slip a strong arm round And whisper, "Never mind." No one has ever told just why Those words such comfort bring; Nor why that whisper makes cur cares Depart onl hurried wing. Yet troubles say a quick "Good-day!" We leave them far behind When somleone slips all arm aroulsd, And whispers "Never mind." But love must prompt that soft caress The love mlnust nye be true; Or at that tender, clinging touch No heartsease comes to you. But if the man be moved by love, Swveet comfort you will find \Vhlen someone slipsl all arm narounl. And whispers "Never mind."
