HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 17 February 1914
H"OUSEHOLD 'HINTS. Kitchen aprons of the same material as your wash dresse& always look neater than those made of some other stuff. Remember this the next time you have a wash dress , ade. Even a white dress looks prettier .with a big white apron to match. Varnished wall-paper should be washed with a whitewash brush and warm soapy lather. Squeeze the brush slightly after it has been dipped in the lather, and work from the ceiling downwards, finishing one patch all the way. down before. starting upon the next.

SILENCE'S VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 17 February 1914
SILENC~'S VALUE. Frankness is a commendable quality, 1iul like all other good things it may: be over. done. \ Manv people think that candor res quires the statement of disagreeable truths, and as a consequence they acquire a large measure of unpopularity. "Well," they say: when the fact is pointed out to them, "would you have us be hypocritical, and utter pleasant lies?" It does not seem to occur to them that there is a middle cours0 --silence. There are times when the bitter truth must be spoken, but those times are far less frequent than thie candid person is apt to sitppose. In small matters where it is not possible honestly to praise, it is gene. rally better to suppress an opinion that \ill. g?ve pain, There is no hypocrisy in silence.

SICKLY CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Bendigonian — 17 February 1914
SICKLY CHILDREN. "UJnventilated rooms are specially injuui-: ous in t'he case of cliffdren," commented a doctor.' "The effects are generally man'i fTsted first in the nervous systeui by the production of drowsiness and mental dul ness. Poisonous matters that are normal IF. exhaled by the lungs and skin are re, t~hined in the blody, rendering the blood, im. u1re - anld producing as mia, depresion, and loss of appetite. A good deal of sick ness amongst children is due to this cause. This applies to adults, although ~n a lesser degree, for their constitutions are stronger. The exclusion of fresh air is a radical mis. take that should be corrected before per. manent damage has been done. Ventilate your rooms therefore, especially those oc cupied by children."
