A REMEDY FOR LEANNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 November 1924

There aee rimay persons who have arrived at ad1lt life and in whom the process of growth has terminated, who yet remain of spare habit, and who, with the usual evidence of health, have not sullicient bodily strength to enable them to recover from any serious attack of disease to which they may fall a prey. Such persons not unnaturally seek a remedy, and desire to he able to accumulate fat and flesh to a greater degree. Fore most among the foods for developing fatty tissue are fats, such as fat meats, butter, milk, cream, etc. Next to these are sugar and all sweet sub stances, as honey, saccharine fruits, parsnips, etc.; and after these come farinaceous substances, as arrow root, brclad, potato, pastry, etc. Fer mented liquors, as beer and stout, have also a high reputation for their fat-producing properties. Of all foods pure new milk is that to be most re lied upon, since it possesses nitro genous matter, fat, and sugar in abun dance, and in a form which is the most readily admissi...

THE "LAST WORD [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 November 1924

THE "LAST WORD Don't make a point of having it. It assuredly will prove too costly an indulgence, for the price you pay will not be in money, but in what money cannot buy-love, respect, and friend ship. Your sweetheart, being a man, will probably not dispute the paltry pos session with you, but the slight sore ness of your thinking it worth having will rankle in his mind for a time. So do not risk that for so trifling a prize. Last wordsl should he "like the last taste of sweets, sweetest last," not bitter or jarring; they should be the faint close of beautiful music, not the clash of a discord. The prettiest lips in the world are ugly if they sneer, and so the dclearest voice will sound harsh if it is used to snatch a quarrelsome advantage in a dispute. Take care of your parting words, then; let them linger pleasantly in the mind of your hearer and "keep your memory green."

DON'T LOOK BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 November 1924

DON'T] LOOK IACK. It is such a waste of time, as a rulp, to do so. Girls who lament the past m111cly for tLh melancholy satis faction of comparing it with a present, they don't like, are stupid indeed. They only make their lot scum more sad than, it is. Better far, especially w\hen one is young and confident, look -forward. That. way we may do sonmcthing and improve whatever seems wrong in the present. Even in love, this is sound sense. The girl who is fond of dwelling sen timentally upon the lov- aflfairs of her very green youth, i.,:'t the best sweet heart for the lover whom she has to day. :It is a poor compliment to him to do this, and if he is not very wide midcled and deeply in .love, he will soon weary of her pensive' regrets, and 'then it will! indeed be good-bye to his love.

A WOMAN'S CROWN OF GLORY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 1 November 1924

A WO1?AN'S CROWN OF GLORY. Alas! the so-called "crown of glory" is too often a skimpy, ?lull crown, and the fault mainly lies with the owner. If the general health is good, any girl can possess pretty hair, and it doesn't mcea spending many shillings on tonics and hair oils, either! To be healthy, hair must have lots of fresh air. It is for this reason that hair pads and heavy hats are so undesirable, nor are thick hairpins or the broad velvet band to be vorn wxith impunity. Wash the hair once in three weeks, an:d whenever possible dry in the sun. letween times give it plenty of dry shampoos, and wash your brush daily. This is how to "dry shampoo.'' T'ake down the hair, shake loose and pow der thickly with the proper powder, tie a cap over, and leave for ten minutes or longer. Now brush out with absolute thoroughness, afterwards taking a clean brush and brushing at first slowly, and then faster till the hair springs up full of electricity and the scalp tingles pleasantly.

KEPT THE TEARS BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 November 1924

KEPT THIE TEARIS 13ACK. Little Bobby,had been given num erous talkings-to about the cowardice of any boy who would cry-before he knew whether or not he was really hurt-just because he happened, to stub his toe or whack himself over the head with a protruding dboor-jam or a sharp corner of the wall. "Real men---brave, strong men don't cry, Bobbie," mamma had said. "ITot ever?' asked the yorngater. "Well," replied mamma, wishing to be e::act, "at least - not until they know they are really hurt." And, by way of further encourage ment, she had taken the little boy's stocking down when he had barked his shin and showed him how he couldn't possibly be really hurt since the skin wasn't broken and there wasn't even a bump. Only the other evening, while papa and mamma were sitting around the living-room table reading, they hearil a most tremendous clatter and racket out in the hall. "Goodness! What is that?" ex claimed mamma. "Jupiter!" gasped papa, jumping uo and running out into the hall....

SHARP SIGHTED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 November 1924

SHARP SIGHTED. Birds have very acute vision-per haps the most acute of any creature -and the sense is almost more wide ly diffused over the retina than is the case with nman;" consequently a bird can see sideways as well as ob jects in front of it. A bird sees showing great uneasiness in conse quence-a hawk long before it is visible to man. So, too, fowls and pigeons find minute scraps of food, distinguishing them from what ap pear to us exactly similar pieces of earth or graveL Young chickens are also able to find their own food, knowing its position, and how dist ant it is, as soon as they are batch ed; whereas a child only very gradl ally learns either to seu o(r to unecr stand the distance of an object. Sev eral birds-apparently the young of all those that nest on the ground can see quite well directly they come out of the shell; but the young of birds that nest in tree tops or on rocks, are born blind, and have to he fed.

FOR YOUNG FOLKS. IHO\V A BE;AR FISHIES. A bear is about. the last animal you would oredit with being able to Ash, but fish he does, and in it he displays an amount of patience and skill that is amuzing. He will lie quite still upon an overhanging log or bank with paw uplifted and eyes atten tively scanning the water. Salmon and trout are his chief delight, and should one come near enough to the surface he is snapped out on the bank with a flip and a twist, and vanishes in bruin's big maw.

VARIETY IN FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 November 1924

VARIETY IN FOOD. A sickly, waning appetite can fre quently be stimulated by some ex ceedingly simple change in the comn monest articles of daily food. Slices of dry hbead are particularly unin viting, but the same bread, lightly browned with a delicately poached egg resting on the crisp toast, be comes altogether another- item in the daily menu. Porridge is a good break fast dish, yet it is well to occasion ally substitute in its place some de. scription of fruit. There are some forty or lifty ways in which to pre pare poitato,,, yet how few are the tables, especially in this country, where one sees the vegetable, except in the steretIyped boiled, whole mashed, or fried! A great variety of delightful dishes can be made with apples at all seasons of the year, whether fresh or dried. " Breakfast, dinner, or tea need never lack a healthful relish with apples within reach. There is no need here to enumerate the host of what are known as made dishes, which can he so quickly and easily co...

CAME OVER IN STORM Will She Weather Council Gale [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 November 1924

CAME OVER IN STORM Will She Weather Council Gale There are evidently rough seas ahead of the Rosny, the ferry steamer which plies between Wil liainstown and Port lelbourne. There has been lodged with the Williams town council a petition signed by inumerous ratepayers i.n favour of sel ling the vessel, and doing some useful work with the resulting cash whatever it may be. Cr. Michael, who repre sents Victoria Ward, will bring the matter to a head at next meeting by moving that the vessel be disposed of. In ocnnection with the running of the boat there is being built at the eiid of F'erguson street a new pier, uponi which a few thousands of the ratepayers' hard cash has been sunk. At Ipresent the pier is isolated, and before being of any use would require a lengthy jetty for passengers to approach it. This is estimated to cost a jew more thousands, how many no one is prepared to acknowledge. The problem set before councillors is therefore not a sinmple one, and it is .not unlikely the...
