The Ideal Housewife. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 4 June 1914
The Ideal Housewife. I The ideal housewife must be sys tem-i tic, of course. We are all . heartily tired of the housekeepers who are so -neat ■ and precise as to make life a burden to their friends ; who follow you with a rug to put your feet on, . ana save the carpet, in muddy\weath°r, and frown .down' i the child who dares drop a crumb on the floor but the . woman who . has a convenient place for the household : belongings, and, more fortunate 'than .many of us, knows where that plrce is, should be hear tily commended. She keeps her toilet' towels in. one. place, those for dishes in auother ; and after they •have once been sorted out after iron ing day, there need be' no tumbling ■ over a drawer full of linen for what ever is needed. Of course, not be ing 'naturally made with a hundred . hauds for work, or a brain nevs.r. to be wearied in vigilance, she is not always infallible, but she is as nearly so as any woman cau be.
The Art of Sitting Well. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 4 June 1914
The Art of Sitting Well. In days gone, by when the art of deportment was one of the most important parts of a girl's education it was said that one could' tell in a moment to what exact grade of society a woman belonged by the way in which she sat down. Even nowadays, when physical culture*is taught to most schol girls in some shape or form, many women do not know how to sit down properly or gracefully.' If 'you observe j a room full of well-dresseEd womed 'you will find that six out of ten of them are sitting half way back in their chairs, either with their shoulders stooping forward or thrown back so far as to be resting against the back of the t chair. In the interests of health, as well as of beauty, the shoulders should never, in walking or stand ing, be further back or forward than the hips. Violation of this rule throws the weight of the body on to the spine, which is unhealthy. The proper way to sit down is to place the hips as far back in the chair as possible, then the bod...
BRIGHT. Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 4 June 1914
WMIBHU >w*rTw>»*vi BRIGHT. From Our Correspondent. Tuesday. The new find of the metal molyb denite at Simmons' Gap has caused a good 'deal of speculation as to the future of the district as a producer of valuable ores. The lucky finder, Mr Ro&ch, expresses every confi dence in his lines of lode, and bush men assert the metal can also be picked up at Snake Gully on the Tawonga side as well. The enor mous value of the metal will cer tainly make the discovery a valu-' able one, and if fresh lodes can be unearthed there is evary possibility of the district booming. Now that the dredging industry is somewhat On the wane, the present discovery is doubly welcome. The deliberations of the Shire Council meeting are reported else where. \ The scholars attending All Saints Church of England Sunday School were presented with prizes on Fri— day evening, and the children ren dered an excellent musical pro gramme. The schoolroom was packed, and the items were well re ceived. Much cre...

ART CRITICISM. Complimentary and Otherwise. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
ART CRITICISM. Complimentary and Otherwise. ' Rogsetti, who was much given . to procrastination, was constantly tell ing Whistler of an idea he had for a picture; tout each time Whistler in quired as to the progress of the^idea Rossetti would evade the issued not having done a stroke of work in the direction indicated, and would instead begin to talk of his literary ventures. Finally, one day when Whistler mis chievously put the usual Question: "And how is the picture coming on?" Rossetti, ignoring the question, said: "Jimmy, I've a neat little sonnet here I'd like to read you." Jimmy sighed and submitted. At the next meeting between the friends Rossetti told Whistler that he had not yet finished the picture, but that he had a frame for it. Whistler inspected the frame, a fine piece of Florentine work, but said nothing. Eventually the procras tinating Rossetti actually did com plete the picture of which he had talk ed so much, and it was in due course triumphantly exhibited for Whis...

Barwidgee to Beechworth Road. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
Barwidgee to Beechworth Road. On Friday last Messrs Armstrong and Keast, of Beechworth Progress Association, and Mr R.. Yule, of Stanley, waited oil the Beechworth Shire Council with a request for im provements to Barwidgee Gap road. .Mr Armstrong said that owing to this road being left in such bad order the whole of the trade of Bar widgee had been driven away from Beechworth. Mr Yule said the Barwidgee Big Hill road cost a lot to construct and was now nothing but boulders and washouts, and people from Barwid gee, and Waterloo could hardly . get to Stanley or Beechworth. Two years ago ,£50 would have saved the road ; now ,£100 would not do it, but ,£25 would make it better. Mr Keast thought ^100 could be spent judiciously on this road. At present Crawford aud Co were com pelled to send their motor cars and heavy, vehicles around .by Myrtle ford. Cr T. G.

GUARDING STATE SECRETS. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
GUARDING STATE SECRETS. Every Foreign Office in Europe acts on the theory that ail army of spies is constantly on the alert to steal ita secrets, and infinite precautions are taken to baffle their efforts. Very " shortly after the first use of blotting-paper it was discovered that it was quite possible to cause blotting-pads to give up jealously guarded secrets by simply holding It in front of a mirror. Liong after all the commercial world had forgotten the existence of such a thing, the British Foreign Office Ubed a sand shaker to dry its important written documents. Then specially manufactured ink blotting-paper was used, ba: this was not found to be absolutely i py-proof, and a return to the saud-fchaker "was contemplated, when someone suggest ed the simple expedient of a small ab sorbent roller. These rollers be>ve since been used for drying diplomatic documents. When such a roller has been run up and down a document once or twice, the cleverest spy in the world is at liberty...

LORD STRATHCONA AND THE "WHITE WASH." [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 11 June 1914
t LORD STRATHCONA AND THE ."WHITE WASH." i ... 1 ,• , From the time he emigrated to Can ada, at the age of eighteen, until he was forty-eight, the late Lord Strath cona spent all his time at various posts of the Hudson Bay Company, newly located on the Labrador. In all those >frirty years among the' northern India! s and the Eskimos, Donald Smith, V ,s he then was, held h'mself strictly ; ,o the niceties of life; so that when, as a man of middle age, he returned to civilised life and the highest office in the gift of the Hud son Bay Company, there were no rough edges of either speech or man ner to ibe overcome. Nothing shows this better than a story told on the Labrador while he was governor of the company. It is a. rule of the Hudson Bay Company that no woman shall 'be allow&lt;ed pass age on its boats. One day, as a steam er of the company neared one of the northernmost ports, a string of white garments was seen stretched across> deck. The. watchers were amazed; for ...
