Without a wife's permission a hus band' sailed for South Africa, and sub sequently ho launched a petition for divorce, alleging that she had been un faithful with ' .a' young ^ man she had known from a youth.

HE WAS BORN WITH IT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 February 1910
HE WAS BORN WITH IT. ' The late General Joseph Wheeler,' said an American, ' was one of the bravest men that ever lived. He was wounded three times in tlie Civil-War, and sixteen horses were shot dead under him. Yet it was not his . military but his literary achievements that he took most pride in. 1 He knew this was foolish, but he could not help it. He said once to me, apologetically, that he was not the only man whos.e pricje was misplaced, ' He said that, in a certain en gagement in his youth, he once heard a private swearing and cursing most mgntiuny. Lieutenant Wheller, as he was hen, -went up to the private and said, sternly — ' Where did you learn to swear like tfyat ?' The private at this q^qstion smiled modestly. ' Ye can't learn it,' he/answer ed.. ' it's, a gift.' -
USELESS. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 February 1910
USELESS. There was some speculation as to whether the instrument would benefit the old gentleman or not, One was holding the ear-trumpet while another explaining its use, and showing old Mr Borrowsiiow to hold it to his ear. 'Say some thing to him through it Joe,' said one to the othfer. Now, Joe had ioifg waited fer an opportu nity to reach Mr Bow-c^ys' ear; so speaking very distinctly into the trumpet, he auid ' You've not paid me that sovereign you owe me yet, Mr Borrows!' But the old gentleman put the instrument down, with disappointment on his face, and they could see it was a failure, even b.efpre he had time to &ay : ' Tliat thing's not a bit of good to me!' And he gighed; but his sigh was not so' deep as that which came from Joe.

ACTRESSES AS LECTURERS. SOME ILLUSIONS DESTROYED. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 February 1910
ACTRESSES AS LECTURERS SOME ILLUSIONS DESTROYED. No actress is anybody this season un less she takes tho professorial chair and gives locturos. The unfortunate thing, (says the Paris correspondent of the 'Daily Tolegraph') is that they never lecture on the. one subject they know, u*lltr»Vi enivklTT L-.-.4. Madame Mar the R-egnier, has at all events cliosen a kindred topic, with \yhich she is undoubtedly familiar, viz., fashions. She has, it seems, made an exhaustive study of the subjects, from hats to lingerie. Her lecture will, at all events, begin at the beginning — not merely at; but before, the Deluge,' for she lays it down incontrovcrtibly that tho first woman to be in the fashion was Eve. Sho naturally ''dressed' to please Adam. Yet Madame Regnier denies that all women dress only to ploase men. Of course, wo want to please men, but we also want to look nice for our awu sakes. Any one of us alone on a desert island would still contrive to look nice with a flower in her hair. in...

THE FRIEND OF THE FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 26 February 1910
THE FRIEND OF THE FAMILY. By E. N. Bungey. 'I'm tired,' murmured Herbert Pat terson, smiting into the easy chair by the fire. 'Ah, this is better,' he added, revel ling in tue warmth and comfort, men tally contrasting it with the biting winu uiiu uiAiiumg sieet uiruugii which he had fought his way home. His wife came to his side and ten derly smoothed his hair. 'Supper will be ready in twenty minutes, Bert,' she said. 'You'll be rested by then.' 'Yes, dear,' he replied; 'and I'll be glad of the meal.' They were very happy, these two, despite the fact that Patterson earn ed only two pounds a week, and rises were very few and far between. The little house — for which they paid only eleven shillings per week, inclusive i of rates and taxes — was home in every , sense of the word. Neither of them I desired anything finer; no palace or I mansion could be to them as the lit , tie house was. j 'I hope Mr. Carton won't come in ? to-night,' Edith Patterson remarked.
