The Might-Have-Been. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 24 July 1909

The Might-Have-Been. There's a magical Isle in the I/ong ago, Afar up the vStream of Time, Where the tide of years doth ebb and flow With a swell and a surge sublime : We may sail for its shores in a fairy skiff, O'er a sea of silv'ry sheen, For it lies 'neath the shade of a towering cliff And we call it The Might-Have-Been. There are relics and priceless treasures there, There are deeds we meant to do, And a shady glade in a garden fair Where our dead hopes bloom anew ; There are endless rivers of wasted tears By the world's great woes they're fed, The idol is there of our youthful years, And the lover we might have wed. There are fruitless efforts and broken vows, There are love -lit memories too, . And a sigh in every wind that blows, For the Dreams 'that Ne'er Came True, There are prizes we meant to -win, I know, If mischance hadn't stepped between, And a plot where our wildest fancies grow, In the realms of the Might-Have-Been. The wreath is there for the victor's brow, Which w...

Women's Friendship. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 24 July 1909

Women's Friendship. It is a pity that there is not more real friendship between women. Now, almost any girl can win the admir ation of some man, but it takes a great deal more charm and force of character to attract and to make and keep her as a friend. There must be absolute sincerity in women's friendship. If a girl does not act fairly and squarely by a man, the chances are that he will overlook her conduct on the ground that she is ' on\y a girl,' and end by calling it ' a woman's way.' But any disregard of the truth, any meanness or ill-natured gossip is fatal between women friends. Girls of shallow mind and selfish dis position never make a friend of one of their own sex. They may have a host of ac quaintances, but not one friend with suf ficient liking to make excuses for their faults. ?

The Judge and the Child. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 24 July 1909

The Judge and the Child. A little girl was brought up to be exam ined by Mr. Justice Maule. 'Do you know what an oath is, my child?' 'Yes, sir, I am obliged to tell the truth.' 'And if you always tell the truth where will you go to when you die ? ' ' Up to heaven, .sir.' 'And what will become of vrm if vnn tell lies ?' ' I should go to the naughty place, sir,' ' ( Are you quite sure of that ? ' 'Yes, .sir; quite sure.' Let her be sworn. She knows a great deal more than I do.' 'Father, what does 'apprenticing' mean ?' asked a boy, in quest of informa tion. Father— 'It means the binding of one person to another by agreement, and that one person so bound has to teach the other all he can of. his trade or profession, whilst the other has to watch and see how things are done, and to make himself useful in every way.' Freddie — 'Then I suppose you're ap prenticed to mother, aren't you, dad ?' The old man rushed off to catch his train without a word. 'Have you any alarm clocks?' inquired t...

Drifting. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 24 July 1909

. Drifting. Knowledge of self is essential to fixed principles of right, as well as to the forma tion of definite and wise purposes in life. Drifting is the source of lamentable failures in every avocation. On any stormy and treacherous sea the vessel that is left to drift without pilot, or chart, or compass, or des tined port, is sure of wreck and ruin. Soon er or later it will be drawn into some whirl pool, or landed among the breakers, or en gulfed in the raging waves of the sea. To drift from New York to Liverpool would be as great a miracle as any on record. Even the little ark of bulrushes, drifting on the current of the Nile, was safe only because God's hand guided it. No human life should expect to drift successfully over the sea of human effort into any desired earthly haven. Napoleon Bonaparte in his success ful campaigns always knew the forces that he commanded. He mastered every detail, from the making of bullets to the planning of battles. His knowledge of his resources...

THE HOME PAGE. Health Chats with Women. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 24 July 1909

[?] By Myona. Health Chats with Women. A great many women can trace their loss of looks and health to the after-effects of an illness. ' I have never been well since I had influenza, ' or ' scarlet fever,' or some other affection, is. too frequently heard, and the illness itself is blamed when the real -cause is neglect and stupidity on the part of the patient when convalescing. The average woman first of all gets well in a tearing hurry. Perhaps she is a business girl or the mother of a family whose time is certainly valuable and who feels that she simply cannot afford the time to convalesce slowly. But it is mistaken economy. Many a serious, even fatal, lung affection follows upon a mild influenza, because the sufferer insists upon going, out of doors too soon . Many a woman loses her looks and is a chronic invalid for life because she won't, give nature a chance, ? because she fusses and flurries in an effort to get .well too quickly. : . . Now, most mortals have, one or two ill ...

The Less Humorous Sex, and Why. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 31 July 1909

The Less Humorous Sex, and Why. It has long beeen conceded that women are less humorous than men. There are no women Mark Twains, no women W. W. Jacobs, no women Dan ? I^enos or Harry L,auders, and certainly no women Grimaldis. Why is it ? Are women really and truly less quick to see the funny side of life ? Are they less quick at repartee, or is it that the sense of humor is there latent, waiting to be developed ? Women have labored, under the disadvantage of -being told that they had no sense of humor, consequently they have at last grown to believe that this as sertion is true. Women are better mimics than men, and they generally live up to the reputation they have been given. If women were told they were humorous as a sex, they would believe it, and live up to the character. Surely some clever woman will arise soon who will write a funny book, or get a really funny play produced, or go on to the music-hall stage and convulse people with laughter. Apparently at present the only w...

Economy in dress is a subject widely dis cussed and much written about, and indeed, this is natural since the matter is of in terest to every woman who takes pleasure in the best management of her money. But ' ' economy ' ' in dress sometimes takes curious and mistaken forms. We see a girl wearing' a stylish and expensive gown, while her underclothes are of the cheapest, and her dressing-gown of common flannel ette. The dress goes on }^ear after year, it is altered many times in accordance with the rapidly-changing fashions, it is cleaned, relined, and disguised as much as possible to maice it unrecognisable, and to rerresii the owner, who gets heartily tired of wear ing it. But the cheap underclothes are constantly coming to grief, and have to be frequently replaced. Commonsense, therefore, would point to the opposite method. Indoor and evening dr...

.- v- ' '' ' - ' '? ? ? Right of jPoSse^sion. The path through the woods was warmed with an afterglow of late sunset. The red light of the sky made a patch of colour where the girl sat on an old tree stump, a handsome collie stretched full length at her feet, 'l?Ou, clear old fellow,' she murmured, 'it was a good da}' for me. when I found you here, and took you home , with me. What should I do without you ~iiow; any way ? ' The dog raised himself and put his head in her lap, whining softly as if he quite understood how necessary his presence was to the girl's wellbeing. She. leaned o^er^ and twisting the collar, almost hiddeiiv-in ; his shaggy coat she ' read the letters en-* 'graven upon it. 'Don/ A/D., 1908.' 'A.D.' she thought might well stand for anything, so, as there was no address. upon the metal plate, it gave not the slighest indicatioiv'of the dog's rightful ownership. . /How foolish/' ? she murmured, half to herself.
