WIT AND HUMOUR. A Great Combination. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 7 June 1912

WIT AND HUMOUR. A Great Combination. A certain well-known artist had1 among his acquaintances many young j persons of that artistic temperament I which dreams a lot more than it per forms. Among these was a girl who thought she could write and a young fellow who imagined he could paint. One day the artist, who maintains that genius is half labor, mentioned the oo hoino1 o n r*f Vi -)«An»viA« wTim 01** wo wuiiiQ auuvu^i uicauici -v uu was going aiong the same primrose path of dalliance as the youth to whom he was speaking. 'Oh, I should so like to meet her,' said the young man, unabashed. 'Won't you introduce me? I want that sort of artistic temperament in the woman I marry.' 'Of course I will,' was the sarcas tic reply. 'It would be a great com bination, and you could be everlasting ly busy illustrating the stories she doesn't write with the pictures you don't paint.' ?

Diphtheria — Its Pre vention and Cure. to the editor. Sir, — Will you kindly find space in your widely read paper for the following suggestions, which may be of use to some of your readers, especially to those in places remote from the doctor. As that dreaded disease, diphtheria, has been, and is,, so prevalent, from the North to the South of Gippsland, it may be not out of place to make known a simple remedy which has proved useful in such cases. This is the ordinary flour of snlphnr, a yellow powder. . The powder is to be blown through a quill, hollow straw, or similar tube, about four inches in length, into the throat abont three times a day, when sore throat is complained of. This prevents the false membrane, which grows in the threat in l-'ipb. theria, from extending, and disperse^ it, If blown; in at the begininng, pre vents serious trouble. A doctor in England is said to have saved all his casefr, during an epidemic of diphtheria by this means alone, when others not using the...

Proof Positive. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 7 June 1912

Proof Positive. When I was a young man I had been reading that a fellow should never marry into a family where there was a taint of insanity. So, for the sake of future generations, I decided that whatever my heart urged me to do, my mind should be on guard. When r the lady of my choice said 'Yes,' I dutifully sought the father. Maybe I was too precipitate. At any rate, this is what I said: 'Your daugh ter has promised to marry me. May I ask if there is any insanity in your family?' The old man looked at me keenly. 'There must be,' was the emphatic answer. 1

THE IMPORTANCE OF TAKING PROPER REST. [Newspaper Article] — Stratford Sentinel and Briagolong Express — 14 June 1912

THE IMPORTANCE OF TAKING PROPER REST. By L.W. In the life of the busy Woman of to-day, with her many daily occupa tions — her work, her visiting, her en tertaining—rest does not find a place. Indeed in this twentieth-century rush and whirl of life, rest seems an un- ' known quantity. If women only knew how potent and necessary a thing proper rest is in the preservation of beauty, they would forego some of the work and gaieties that so fill their lives, and snatch a little more time for this much-needed repose. It is the lack of proper rest that helps to wither up the complex ion, spoils its fresh tints, and brings those premature wrinkles and furrows on the forehead and round the eyes. By rest I do not only mean the nightly sleep which all need, but a calm, restful state of body and mind during the waking hours of the day. Mental activity is desirable for all women; but that stress and rush which characterise so strongly the daily life of the modern woman is very often the root of a...

A LITTLE DECEIVER A LONG COMPLETE ROMANCE OF A SISTER'S LOYALTY. i By Mollie Kennedy. Ambrose Fairburii sat in his cosy room, a bright fire 'burning on the hearth, the shaded lamp convenient ly placed at his elbow, and a book. But he was not reading; instead, his gaze was bent on the fire, a puzzled frown creasing his brow as he went over in his mind pieces of evidence belonging to the last case, and mar shalled fact after fact in cold array. 'I wonder,' he began, then raised his head with that alert air of listen ing so characteristic of the man, the suudued sound of voices outside m the little hall reached him. A minute later the door opened, and his man servant intimated that a gentleman wished to see him. Fairburn frowned. 'Who is it, Carter?' lie said, but be fore the man could answer a tail, lean, bronzed individual pushed past him, and before Fairburn had recovered from his surprise he was shaking him heartily by the hand. '?Good heavens!' he ejaculated. 'Why, it's Dick Beaum...
