About Catching Cold. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 2 November 1898

About Catching Cold. Of course, It goes without saying that whosoever has reaction strong enough to take the cold morning tub all through out the winter will possess to a great ex tent an immunity from colds, and when he does cateh a little attack it will speedily run Its course, and be over and done with. But all are not so hardy. My advice is to dress for the winter in light, warm clothing, both upper and under, to forswear those vile india rubber coats that keep the perspiration from getting iaway, leaving the jacket or coat beneath damp or even wet ; to abjure also goloshes ; to wear nothing but wool, bar shirt-front, collar, and cuffs ; to have warmth In bed with. ven- tilation ; to take plenty of exerolse with out fatigue every day, and to eat plenty of blood-Tvarmlng food. Milk, butter, bacon, sugar, pudding, arid oatmeal por ridge or brose are invaluable. But fresh air keeps up the animal heat by kindling a flre, as It were. In the lungs, and burn ing oft the effete matter o...

The Home. The Best Husband. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 2 November 1898

The Home. The Boat Husband. The man who makes the best husband is the man who is not mean. Of all crea tures to live wltSi the mean man is the most likely to cause his wife to rue the day she became his. It is not only stingi ness in money matters that is repulsive — 'though thait is bad enough. The mean man stints In the housekeeping, but is generally lavish enough about himself. It is the poor wife who has. to bear the Jar and fret of all the housekeeping nig gardliness. But meanness goes beyond that. It stoops to actions that cover the wife's cheek with blushes and fill her heart with shame and anguish. No man who is mean can keep his wife's iove, unless he draga her down to his own level, and that is the greatest harm he can do her. The man who makes the best huB'baad has a temper calcu lated to bear the wear and tear of every day life. He does not fly into a passion at a trifle, or vent his rage at things that nobody on earth can help. ' He may show his righteous wrath on occas...

An Expensive Feast. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 2 November 1898

An Expensive I'east. What is probably the moRl expensive, and certainly the most vulgar, banquet of modern days, was recently given in Paris by the son of an American multi millionaire. As the papers said, it seemed too extravagant to be true, but those to whom the entertainment was credited have not contradicted the ao oount, as they assuredly would if it were false. Twenty-five guests wore bidden to the feast,' among them members of the French nobility ana rich Americans. l'wenty-flve of the finest equipages of Paris were sent to bring the guests most of whom must have possessed car riages of their own— to the house of their host, or rather to the celebrated res taurant which served as his home for the moment. To each guest was served an Individual repast entire ; each guest had a whole leg of mutton, a whole salmon, a whole truffled fowl, a whole basket of peaches, and a double magnum of cham pagne — besides other wines and delica oles. After the feast was over a black Bilk bag w...

' Are you clean with your work ? Can you clean with alacrity 1' ' Yes, 'um, I fancy so,' said Mary doubtfully. Then In a burst of confidence she said : ' You see, mum, I don't know much about alacrity.

Training in Judgment. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 2 November 1898

Training in Judgment. To be able to form judgments rapidly and rightly is a very important matter for every man and woman. It is sa d that men excel in this because their rea soning faculties are more trained, while women are apt to jump to conclusions ; but a trained faculty of judgment ought not to be confined to one sex. and w6 should endeavour to develop it in. all 1 our children. The accurate wording in which we express our ideas and conclusions is of the greatest importance in connection ?with judgment, and In teaching the young we should always be careful to see that the child grasps our meaning, and make him express it again in his own words. Questions at the end of every lesson are a valuable means to this end, and as the child grows older abstracts ' of lessons may be made and examina tions take place. As the daily life of each individual is apt to fall into certain grooves, so we are apt to form certain 'habits of tHought, and as the mind takes the direction it'hus acquir...

Woman's Tact. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 2 November 1898

Woman's Tact. There is nothing that carries a woman so far toward the goal of social success as tact. The tactful woman always says and does the right tiring at the right time. She never wounds by those gaucheries . which all unintentionally, yet neva theless painfully, remind us of things we had rather have forgotten, or tells us unpleasant trutns tnat are no ibss uhlci because we know that there is no deny ing them. Tact passes over every mis take, and somehow manages to convert them into something pleasant bofore the embarrassed perpetrator has a chance to raise a blush at his own awk wardness. Above all virtues cultivair tact, for In it lies t'h-e secret of all the ;others.

How to be Won. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 2 November 1898

How to be Won. ? The too-easily-won woman' is either ?very little versed in the ways of the world or she instinctively feels her own inferiority. Generally speaking, a girl whose wooing Is scarcely deserving of the name is hardly worth having when won. Most men prefer their roses to be hedged with thorns ; and when these latter are consDicuous bv their absence they are apt to think their flower is not a rose, and in nine cases out of ten they are right. It may be laid- down as a matter of ! certainty that the woman who has only been won after an arduous wooing Is far more likely to retain her lover's alle ' glance than the one who shows at once that she is quite willing to be won.

ALL THE DIFFERENCE. This Archbishop of Canterbury wished, tome timo ago (says ' M.A.P.') to make improvements in his palace at Lamboth, including the decoration of his rocop ion-hall.

The Sketcher. A Night-thief. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 2 November 1898

The Sketcliei-. A Night-thief. Towards evening the sick man, who had tossed and raved tor many heavy days and nights, had fallen .into a quiet slumber. The doctor. had come and gone, and had rubbed his hands softly with satisfaction at his patient's sleep. ' Let him have it out unbroken,' he said, ' and it will save his life.' ' And his reason,' 'he added to 'his own ears. My cousin Helen went with him into the carpeted corridor, closing the door with out sound behind her. ' I will watch him myself,' she said, 'and the nurse can sleep. No one could watch over him as I will.' ' It would be best,' said the doctor, ' that he should see you when he wakens. He will be conscious, I ex pect, and must have no shocks. Let him come gradually to the knowledge that he has been ill.' The great house stood lonely among the snow^covered fields. Here and there j a pine coppice stood up black against j the snow, and away on the horizon rose i the northern lights of the distant fur naces. She had sen...
