SHAVING WITHOUT A MIRROR. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 17 April 1903

SHAVINC WITHOUT A MIRROR. That a man can become accustomed to pretty much anything is proved by officers in the Army, who, when camped out or placed in a position where they do not have the accessorics pf the toilel, soon learn to do without articles gener ally thought to be inditspensable. In con versation an Armyofficer said the other day :-" Why, I never think of using ga mirror when 1 shave. I do not stand up to do it, either, but sit down on a camp stool, or the side of. a cot, and whack away at my face. It is more comfortable to be seated, and then I do not have to crane my neok to see the place am shaving, and thereby expose myself to a gash front the ,razor. l.nver cut my. self ; in fact, I am willingoto wager that I can shave in my tent without a mirror as easily or with mcre ease than many who have every convenience of the tont sorial table, and oftet leave marks of their awkwardness onl their faces.

AMUSING ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 17 April 1903

AMUSINO ERRORS. Mr. Asquith once referred to the Gov ernment's " pique or temper "; the re porter wrote " peacock temper." A speaker at Exeter Blall, replying to an attack, said it was " a double lie in the shape of half the truth," which, by the ingenuity of the, reporter, appeared as "a-double eye in. the shape of half a tooth." Sir James Grant, in a speech in the Canadian House of Commons, once referred to a man's thorax; when in print it read, " a manl's pick-axn " ; and on 'another occasion his reference to " food for the gods " appeared " food for the cods." In setting up a speech of Sir Henry Irving the compositor made " many journeys in small boats " read " weary journeys in small boots."

A WOMAN'S CARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 17 April 1903

A WOMAN'S CARRIACE. .Much of an Englishwoman's beauty' lies in her proud carriage, the erectness of her figure and the poise of her head. The aristocratic carriage is within reach of every girl who will take the trouble to have it. It is a question of a fewt -years of vigilance, during which sheh should never relax the watchfulness over; herself. Sitting or standing the erect ness and pose must be preserved. Theo result will be that at the end of that time it has become second nature to her, In this way the figure is also preserved, the muscles are kipt flrnm and well' strung, and the sinking down of the flesh round the waist and hips is pre vented.
