ROAD VERSUS RAIL ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 29 May 1914
ROAD VERSUS RAIL ROADS. Tljo adoption of the ronds of Eng land in place of tho railroads, which vould still hare their functions to ful fil, and th© substitution to an over-in creasing extent of the independent notor-lorry, free to choose its road, for the locomotive, tied and hampered by its inability to do other than follow the i*ails. scorns not only inevitable, but highly advisable ifl the true interests of the country in times of peace and war. A striking parallel may be found in tho relative succcss of the motor-'bus and the electric-tram. But its adoption must be tantamount to mounding tho death-knell of tho prev ent railway system, and tho loss of Miany millions to railway shareholders.

WHERE PRETTY GIRLS ARE UNFORTUNATE. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 29 May 1914
WHERE PRETTY GIRLS.ARE UNFORTUNATE. Prcttv girls are not entirely to Iw envied. They may bo much acicoin ed, and all that, but there is U1WJLT« a prejudice against them. They ar« seldom taken seriously, but expeok ed to be frivolous and shallow. A. man does now and again honour a Tiretty trill with serious considera tion; but, in the majority of cases, it is the plain girl he settles on for a wife. The pretty girl is sure to be subject to envy and a pood deal of the malice of other women. An other fearful handicap is that she is always expected to look pretty, and does not get any credit for be ins beautiful. One is on the look out for hqr looks to begin to "go off," or for an unbecoming dress or hat. In other words, she is obser^ ed when' she does not look her best. The plain girl on the other hand, is not expected to be pretty, and if she docs wear a becoming ' costume everybody comments on it, and shs nets more admiration than does the girl who is always pretty. There, ii a legen...
