The Pioneers. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
The Pioneers. (By Thos. Blackhall, Mort's Estate, Lith gow.) O! sing the song of red war's page, ? That lusts for selfish might; I'll sing the deeds of a peaceful age That pens of history slight. The deeds of brave and sturdy men, . Who fought the conquering years ' With silent faith in the future dim— The grim old pioneers. The brave, true hearts, that, faced the dark Hills crest and forest lone, In this great land, and left their mark, But not on tombs of stone; That faced the plains and deserts wide, With many doubts and fears, But nobly gave their hearts and lives — The sturdy pioneers. They pitched their tents by drying creeks, And raised their roofs of bark, ,? They toiled and delved a myriad weeks, And knew but day and darkv The si eping- land gave forth its fruits, Though oft it rose in jeers, With plagues and droughts and fires and floods, . And mocked the pioneers. Not in the towns and busy marts, 'Mid pleasure's rushing cars — They served their lives, and played their . p...

Boys ! Listen ! THE EMPIRE IS CALLING. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
Boys ! Listen ! THE EMPIRE IS CALLING. The following appropriate and inspiring verses, from the pen of a Dunedoo young lady, should surely touch the chord of pat riotic sentiment and appeal to the gallant instincts of the Australian boys who have not responded to the call of their noble, heroic comrades at Gallipoli: — AUSTRALIA'S CALL. Listen! the Empire is calling, Let us fight for our country or die. Though thousands of heros are falling, Our ensign will e'er float on high. Many brave lads from Australia Have fought in the strife and have died; Whilst others are bearing the honors That England alone gives with pride. Oh! many true hearts have been broken. For the brother and son o'er the sea; But the same noble hearts are joining In. the cause of the just and the free. For listen! the Empire is calling, Let us fight for our country or die; Though thousands of heroes are falling, ! Our ensign will e'er float on high. Who'll be the next from Australia? Oh! who'll be the next to enl...
HOW THE ROSE BECAME RED. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
HOW THE ROSE BECAME RED. The rose was not always red. When the gods made it queen of all flowers it was white, without a trace of color. And then the nightingale fell in love with it, twul flew to it with such ardour that he pricked his bosom with one of the rose's thorns. The blood came out and fell upon the rose, and she was so touched at the love of the nightingale that she prayed to the gods to allow her always to have the life-blood of the b'rd upon her petals. And from that time to this all the descendants of that rose have been red.

TREATMENT OF SPRAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
TREATMENT OF SPRAINS. Popular opinion differs very much as to the immediate treatment of sprains, so far as the application of heat is concerned. The rule is— where the skin is unbroken— to apply cold water immediately at the time of the accident; but if some little while — say half an hour or more— has elapsed, to apply warmth. In all cases rest ? should be Insisted on from the moment of the accident until the case has been seen by a doctor. *
WOMAN'S COLUMN. SOME USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
WOMAN'S COLUMN. CONDUCTED BY 'MAVIS.' SOME USEFUL HINTS. A very stylish costume of silk taffetas . trimmed with bands of 'velvet. Some new effects are seen In the narrowing waist, full overskirt and flared collar. This costume could well dispense with the fast disap pearing underskirt that looks more of an encumbrance in contrast with the rational fullness of the newer style. We are now returning to more rational ideas in dress. Ideas that are the result of the Inevitable revolt against a style that often outstepped the bounds of propriety for . those who were do longer young and of ridicule for those who, proud of their youth, fancied they might dare anything, even ugli ness. Everywhere is noticed quite a remarkable change, simple shapes appearing in the place of the former ones, the' stuff being made to adapt itself to the figure instead of the figure seeming to rebel against the shape forced upon it. How restful is all this1 after the incongruous things we have seen lately. . The...
SOME HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
SOME HOUSEHOLD HINTS. To soften a hard sponge, cover it with cold water, add a t'ablespoonful of borax, and bring slowly to the boil in a clean saucepan. Then remove the sponge, rub some dry borax into it, and rinse under the cold tap, allowing the water to run over it for several minutes. Don't make tea with or drink the first wnfar that pi mou frnm tho tnna In hha mnrn. Ing. Let it run a little, so that the water which has been in the pipes all night may be drained away. That which comes after is more wholesome than that which has been lying In lead pipes for hours on end. If an egg has a. very thin shell, or is chipped, so that you fear it may crack in the boiling water, add a few drops of vine gar to the hot water. This will harden the white and prevent it running through the hole; so the egg may be boiled without breaking. When mixing blue in hard water, add a cup of milk to a tub of water. This pre vents the clotfhes from blueing unevenly and in streaks. Before blacking a stov...
MARRIAGE DAY OMENS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
MARRIAGE DAY OMENS. Every bride, of course, observes the com mand to wear 'Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue!' on her marriage day. But she must be equally careful not to open a telegram on the wedding day before the ceremony, or to try on her wedding ring. To do so is considered to be really tempting fate.' The bride who sees a spider on her wed ding dress should rejoice, not scream, as it is considered a very lucky omen. To drop the wedding ring is extremely unlucky, and should the bride's carriage en counter a funeral she should turn back and start again, or bad luck is invite*!. No bride must entirely dress herself for the wedding, and never must she make her own cake. On no account, must she and the bridegroom meet before they meet in church on the momentous day, and unless bad luck is to follow, the bride must steo with her right foot as she leaves the sacred edifice.
