Amongst the Ladies. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 17 May 1921
Amöiigst the . Ladies. -r~v (By "little Polly.") . D«ár Girls,-I have often- thought that while we pay too brauch attention to outward appearances, that is to drei» and the fashions, we corres- pondingly neglect many of ^ those health-preserving duties, attention to which is quite as importantlto ,thc ! vjterftction of those outward appear- j ^ances(;as to dress and fashion. Now, there is much in the way we do many, little things, which, aire commonly looked upon as of moment . oniy from the standpoint of fashion or vanity. We are very particular, for instance, about haying, our hair curled, plaited or frizzed after; the latest and most .approved style,.but in doing this we : invariably neglect. to take proper steps.for the preserva- tion of the hair. In fact, most of the1 atttótrbn'( we bestow upon it only, re-"'* sultji« accelerating its decay, and prejniture greynessv " in the, pink ¿f fashion, for it . cannot ¿be denied that it is one of the most attractive áñdí beautifying feat...

The Man with the Hoe. * . - - (Written after seeing Millet's world-famous painting.) God made man in His own image. In the image of God made He him. Genesis. --^« Bowed by the weight of centuries he leans s Upon his hoe and gazes on the ground, The emptiness of ages in his face;* And on his back the burden of ¡the world. \ ~" \ Who made him deajl to rapture and despair, ' A thing that grieves not and that never hopea. Stolid and stunned, a brother to the ox? Who loosened and let down this brutal jaw ? Whose was the hand that slanted back this brow ? "Vhose breath blew out the light within his brain ? Is this the thing the Lord God made and gave To have dominion over sea and land ; To trace the stars and search the heavens for power ; To feel the passion of Eternity ? Is this the dream He dreamed who shaped the suns And marked their ways upon the an- cient deep ? Down all thaggtretch of Hell to its last gulf There fs no shape more terrible than this-.

"THE MAN WITH THE HOE." [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 17 May 1921

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 17 May 1921
Mining. We have just been shown two in- gots of gold obtained from a crush- ing of loo tons of ore on the Golden Dyke mine. The weight of the gold was 220Z., the rather poor result being chiefly due to the bad state of the plates, which have been unused for nearly three years. The tailings, however, gave about 6 dwts, while j the lode itself" is simply a quarrying ] proposition, being 20ft wide, and therefore much more remunerative than many small reefs of high-grade , ore. There- is a id-head battery on the ground, but only five head "were requisitioned for the crushing. Of , this crushing the tributors-a party of three-broke. 50 tons in li shifts, the other 50 tons being ore at grass from former operations. Another crushing is being got ready. There are two shafts on the lode, which it is intended to* develop forthwith.' This mine was formerly known as the Shackle and is 7 miles' from Grove Hill. Our Bridge Creek correspondent sends news of the crushing of a par- cel of 20" tons '...
