"You consider it unwomanly'and in delicate, I believe?" "Very." "And you don't see how any man could allow his wife to do anything of the kind?" "Yes, I think so." "Well, Mr. Smithers, in view of all the facts In the case, I feel justified in asking you for a new silk dress." "A new Bilk dress?" "Yes; for the last eight years 1 nave had nothing better than four penny print, and I want something better. I'm tired of getting into print."

MAIZE FOR COLOR. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 8 August 1914
MAIZE FOR COLOR. There are go-called egg foods ga lore, but he real thing is a proper pro portion of maize green food and lean meat. Too often the high-priced win ter egg proves but a pale, flabby af fair with colorless yolk and watery white. This results from feeding without a sufficiency of green food and hard grain, especially maize^ Fresh green feed and maize will pro duce tho egg with rich, golden yolk and firm white standing up around it —a thing of beauty on the breakfast table and a joy to the breakfaster. An abundance of egg-making food fed to the pullets in an appetising and di gestible form so that large quantities may be eaten and assimilated is ne cessary to prolific egg production at any season, but particularly in win ter. Succulent green food is especi ally essential for this purpose, being in fact one of the things that belong to the springtime with its flush of egg production.

DON'TS. [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 8 August 1914
DON'TS." Don't use the eyes when they are tired or weak from illness. Don't face the light when reading or sewing. Don't neglect to bathe the eyes before retiring, so as to remove any dust that may have gathered on the lids during the day. Don't allow a cold, raw wind to strike the eyes. Don't try to get a cinder out of the eye by rubbing the injured orb; rub the other eye. Doi\'t sleep too much or too little; too much sleep weakens the eyes, too litle fa tigues them. Don't wear your hair always in the same style; a change of method is beneficial to the hair, and to let it fall losely about the shoulders is an excellent plan at times. Don't follow fashion blindly in re gard to coiffure if you would have ar tistic proportions and bring out the best expressions of the face. Don't part the hair in the middle if you are xound-faced and chubby; this only emphasises the disc-like appearance. Don't get into the habit (quite an easy one to fall into) of frowning. It causes the face to becom...
