A PERFECT WOMAN. What She Should Measure. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 8 August 1914

A PERFECT WOMAN. What She Should Measure, If any woman wishes to know if she is a perfect specimen of her sex she has only to apply to the rules laid down for ascertaining the fact, and figure out results. First as to height; tastes differ, but the Medicean Venus is 5ft. 5in. in height, and this is held by many sculptors and artists to be the most admirable stature. For a woman of 5ft. 5in. 1381b. is the proper weight, and if she is well formed she can stand another 101b. without greatly showing it. When the arms are extended she should measure from tip of middle finger to tip of middle finger just 5ft. 5in„ exactly her own height. The length of her hand should he just a tenth of that, of her foot just a seventh, and the diameter of her chest a fifth. From the thighs to the ground she should measure just what she measures from the thighs to the top of her head. The knee should come exactly midway b'etween the thigh and the heel. The distance from the elbow to the middle finger shoul...

When all is quiet, come down to the study, lou will l'liid me there waiting. Bring your pearls with you.—FATHER." She stared at the bold writing with a curious intentness.

CYCLING. What are the fading Common wealth Cycling Bodies going to do in respect to their road racing pro grammes. At this juncture whilst everyone's attention is focused on the gigantic straggle now .going on in Europe, it is doubtful if cyclists will throw mnch heart into the sport, and furthermore, it they did whether the trade wonld feel justi fied in expending money in that di rection jnst now, for no one dare Tontnro nn opinion as to how long the present upheaval of Europe will last.

COUGH GENTLY. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 15 August 1914

COUGH GENTLY. Pew people know how to cough pro perly. It never occurs to the ordin ary Individual that there is a right way and a wrong way of doing it. Yet it is a matter of no small import ance. If every sigh means a drop of blood out of "the heart, as people say, every cough means some greater or less proportion of time knocked off one's life. Most people cough as loud ly and forcibly as they can. But it is rather costly noise, for the single reason that it tears and inflames the lungs. The lungs consist of an extra ordinary delicate sponge-like tissue, which sometimes gets inflamed and jhoked with phlegm. When we try to set rid of this substance we cough. But obviously. If we remove it vio ently, we must necessarily injure tin lelicate lung tissue. Therefore train ourself to cough as gently as pos ;ible.

SLEEP—ITS VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 15 August 1914

SLEEP—ITS VALUE. Sleep, nature's most potent medi cine! I-low it brings peace to the troubled, rest to the weary, and roses to the checks, if we woo the power to lay aside all cares till thf morrow. But sometimes the moment the head readies the pillow .seems to be the signal for each individual wor»-y and care to present itself like an'aveng ing angel. These mighty co.npanions seem malicious in their intent. When the hours of the night go hand-in-hand with wakeful care, the dawn may bring fitful slumber, but on the face there is left a weary, worried expression, prevents i/ie-mi 2 sues, and creates an appetite, which is the foundation of recuperation for the system that needs nourishment, so sleep retores the lost strength, and iill us with vim for future exertions. As there is no ironclad rule governing the amount of food required, neither can there be a rule which will fit each individual, saying how much sleep is necessary. However, there are a few generalities. No one should do ...

WOMAN'S WORLD. WEAR BECOMING COLORS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 15 August 1914

WOMAN'S WORLD. WEAR BECOMING COLORS. It Is not every woman who under stands the art and necessity of har monising colors. She is apt to he swayed too much by the decrees of fashion when selecting shades for a new hat or dress, and the result, more often than not, is great contrasts, which accentuate instead of hide de fects of the face and figure. The woman who desires to look her liest must select only those colors which will be helpful to her. Women differ so much in form and coloring that each must he a law unto her self. There is the fair and florid woman, the thin and sallow woman. Another typo is neither stout nor thin, per haps, but colorless and faded, a strik ing contrast to the highly-colored dark woman, whose pink cheeks have changed to a dull red. Taking the fair and florid, a type generally inclined toward obesity, she <v\eiT \\.\ii u. view to becomlngness. Pale blue, perhaps, has been her color in youth.
