Foul Breath [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 April 1917
The old saying that "distance lends enchantment" was never more aptly to the point than when ' applied to those people whose breath is laden with evil-smelling and offensive odours. Many persons appear most attractive at a dis tance, but produce a feeling of pity and disgust when close to, because of the condition of their breath. For instance it makes little difference how beautiful a woman may be, or how charming her manner, if her breath is foul; her charm is gone, and she is at a disadvantage whenever she comes in contact with other people. Foul breath in wo man arouses in man a feeling of re pugnance and a desire to get out of the company of such a woman as quickly as possible, and even women will avoid her. It is, therefore, im portant for every woman who val ues her personal attractions to take such care of herself that this un pleasant and unnecessary complaint is avoided or corrected. Men, wom en, and children who are troubled with this complaint will drive their friends aw...
Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 April 1917
Sporting. A 10 MILE cycle road lace, promoted by i the Mytleford Cycle Club, was run off, on Friday last, and resulted in a win for V. Higgs, of Bright, who covered the distance in 30mm 57sec. J. Coleman, of Bright, secured second place, his riding time being jomin. 58sec. Bookmaking has been reduced to a fine art in Sydney, and ringmen te:l stories of the colossal totals they handle. One Sydney bookmaker, who operated nearly every day, had in the twelve months a turn over of £'749.986. At the A.J.G. meeting a ringnvin cleared ;£i2,oco on his book, and won i'9000 of this amount on Doncaster Day. A member of a leading firm won £6000 on his Doncaster day operations. Bad debts are frequent, and one man exhibited, in Sydney last week a list of £3348 in bad debts for twelve, months. Another operator wrote off £25,000 in the course of a few years. Concessions wagering, in which your money is returned if your horse runs second and third, is a Sydney innovation ; while "auctioneering" the s...
GIRLS WHO ARE SHUNNED BY MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 April 1917
GIRLS WHO ARE SHUNNED BY MEM. There are many girls who are shun ned by men, and for the most part the fault lies with themselves. The girl who never exerts herself to be agree able, unless she can have everything her own way, is one of them, for there is not a man alive who will give way in everything to a girl. The girl who scolds is another type; she may be perfectly good-tempered, but she has contracted the scolding habit, and so she is left alone to scold at lier pleas ure. Then there is the girl with the haughty manner and cold stare. No man dares to make love to her, be cause there is nothing whatever to love in her. So the girl scowls at what she considers their had taste, utterly ignoring the fact that her own foolish conduct is the sole cause of their neglect. Another girl without a lover is the painfully shy maiden. She likes to see men at a distance, but the moment they draw near she drives them back with embarrassment. They retire simply out of pity, seeing her distresse...

John Was Prepared. Representative Gardner, in an ad dress in Providence on preparedness, said: "Before the looming danger of in vasion the pacifist and the prepared ness chaps are, respectively, like Wil lie and Johnny. Willie and Johnny had been very naughty, and were sent to bed by their mother. As they lay side by side footsteps were heard it was now evening-and the two cul prits realised that their father was mounting the stairs. They turned pale. " 'I'm goin' to fold my hands as if I'd been prayin',' said Pacifist Willie, 'and then I'll pretend to be asleep when he comes in.' "But Preparedness Johnny was al ready bustling swiftly about the room. " 'I'm goin' to put on my pants,' he said, 'and line 'em with a newspaper.' "

How They Were Caught. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 April 1917
How They Were Caught. Two burglars once entered the house of a clergyman, and whilst they were engaged in their nefarious practice, they heard the clergyman coming to wards the room, so one immediately got under a table and the other in a cupboard near the ceiling. The clergyman entered the room, and, after searching about with no re sult, exclaimed: "Ah, the One above knows all." "No, I don't," shouted the burglar in the cupboard. "It's the one under the table who planned it."
MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 April 1917
MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCES. The disappearance of Mr. E. J. Wills, whose death is presumed by the Probate Court to have occurred on or about January 11, 1915, since when all trace of him has been lost, adds another mystery to an already long list. Another unsolved London disap pearance was that of one Winstanley, an intimate of the late Hon. George Brodrick, Warden of Merton, and Viscount Midleton's uncle. They lodged together in St. James*, and Winstanley used every evening to dress at their rooms and walk to his club for dinner. One night he went out as usual, and was not heard of again. His money accumulated, but he neve claimed it. Lord Leitrim has heard nothing of his brother, Mr. P. P. Clements, who disappeared about ton years ago. In 1907 he worked his passage from Southampton to New York as a stoker, and since has given no sign of life. In the Lyster family there was a mysterious disappearance, and dur ing an expedition to Alaska in 1898 Sir Arthur Curtis, Bart., and an In dia...
MAKING THE BEST OF IT. A Little Song' of Sunshine. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 27 April 1917
MAKING THE BEST OF IT. i A Little Song' of Sunshine. If you find a bit of work that is tire some, do not shirk, Nor an injured martyr feel, and all the rest of it. Put your shoulder to the wheel, and you very soon will feel That it pays you very well to make the best of it. If you have a hill to climb, and feel weary all the time, And you long most ardently to see the crest of It, Tramp on bravely, and you will very soon find out the hill Is not half so steep because you make the best of it. If your day is drear and long, minus mirth and joy and song; Answer, "British pluck and grit, what is the test of it?" It is bearing all the while-yes, and bearing with a smile, With determination stern to make the best of it. . f your hours are fraught with strife, and your day with woe is rife, And the hand of care robs life of .all the zest of it. Think, "The lane must have a turn," and the useful lesson learn That coma' sorrow or come joy, to make the best of it.
