CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 9 January 1914
CHAPTER III. Love, Hilary's daily letter, hla fly ing visits to London, and her own courage, helped Queenie through the next four months. She was still work ing at Voile and Co.'s. A bride needs a trousseau, and the home had still to be kept up, though the financial strain had iesseued; but in a way that troubled Queenie and kept her awake at night Instead of bringing peace of mind. Mr. Price bad taken a single-room ofllce iu the city, and was speculating in copper with some apparent suc cess. A man cannot speculate without some capital. It was the knowledge of the source of her father's borrow ed capital that helped to keep Queenie awake at night. Michael Thorne had lent him the mouey, but, as Mr. Price put it airily, on a purely business basis; Michael Thorne, who, since the night of Ills unsuccessful proposal to Queenie, seemed to have discarded ail human emotions and turned himself into a money-making machine; who had justified his boast, "Nothing can stop me!" He was the sensat...
CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 9 January 1914
CHAPTER II. Tho Prices occupied the half of a house, classically termed "raaiBon ette" in advertisements. They had a front door to themselves, and also a fiight of stairs with a sharp turn be fore the premises commencing on the first lloor were reached. It was late. When sales were on at Voile and Co., Queenle's hour of re turn was quite uncertain. She had a latchkey, and the gas was left burning in the hall passage for her. As Queenie stepped into the pass age, Michael Thome had reached the foot of the stairs, and she heard the retreating shuffle of her father's car pet slippers as he reached the landing above. Mr. Price wore a loud-checked suit, white spats, and a rakish howler hat at an angle by day; but at night— when he was at home—collapsed into a dressing-gown and carpet slippers. He rarely exhibited open signs of drunkenness, but he became very weary after ail excess of whisky. That was why, instead of seeing Michael Thome to the front door, he had "God blessed" him on the s...

CARING FOR THE CREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 9 January 1914
CARING FOR THE CREAM. That good butter cannot bo made from improperly kept cream is a truism " that has become almost wearisome in ;ts .reiteration. Yet one must keep barri ering away at it until producers thor oughly realise the necessity of taking the vety best care of their cream. As /'Hoard s Dairyman" points out, neglect .. to do this is one of ho chief causes of inferior butter. Butter from properly •• kopt and ripened cream has a more de sirable flavor, keeps sweet longer, and brings a higher prico in the market. Tlio first essential is to take proper care of the milk in the cowhouse and separating room. It must be kept " away from undesirable odors, otherwiso there' are taints in the butter. It is preferable to skim a fairly heavy cream, one testing'about 35 per cent. It ought to be- skimmed before the milk has cooled or set around for any length of time. One of the first essentials is to oool it as soon after separation as Possible. When it can be arranged a ustrablo method...

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 9 January 1914
LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. The bluntest remarks cut deepest. Friendship is never hand-made—it grows. Tears never yet wound up a clock or worked a steam-engine. Xc sermon is too long for the wo man with a new hat. I What a piece of wo:It is man. What a piece of fancy work is woman. Every man has his price, and many are willing to give themselves away. The very last thing a normal wo man wants from any man is—the truth. A cautious ma.i is like a hat-pin. His head prevents h!m from going too far. It is charming to fie always smiling, but such people as a rule live ia men tal hospitals. When a woman zr.eets a man half way he begins to think it is time for him to turn back. The men v/ho think that money can do anything will probably do any thing for money. A big fist can bruise an evv, but not for so long as a II*tie dimple can bruise a man's heart You may face financial ruin, death,! illness, even gaol with calmness, but : the tickle of a persistent fly—never.

HEART PALPITATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 9 January 1914
HEART PALPITATION. It 1b rarely, if over, that palpitation la due to any disease or weakness of the heart. It 1b almost invariably the result of nervous or digeBtive trouble. The boat of the heart arises "within itself. Thero aro nerves in the Mus cles of the heart, ami they regulate its bating, although the speed or rate of the beating is not of their choosing. Il' tliey were not held in check they would Bet n rate about doublo that which Is actually maintained. The heart is supplied from thq brain with two pairs of regulating norves. One pair, the cardio-motor nerveB, act only to spur tip tl* e heart to quicker action. They are usually inactive, waiting the occasion for applying the spur. The other pair, the cardio-lnhlbitory nerves, are always in action. It haB been said that tlio heart runs in a pair of tightly-held reins, and the Bl-milo 1b true, for these nerves check tho speed. Fear, worry, disorder of the stomach or nervous system cause these cardio-inhibltory nerves to re l...

HOW TO PACK FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 9 January 1914
HOW TO PACK FLOWERS. - j For packing shallow boxes should I be used, as the flowers will travel much better if placed in single lay ers. The boxes should be just long ; enough to comfortably accommodate the flowers, and should bo lined with ; some soft non-absorbent material.
