WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 18 June 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. ORDERLY HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT. Clearing the Decks for Action. When we have a special work to do we first "clear the decks for action." If there is an absorbing piece of literary work to be accomplished. the usual desk detail is cleared away, the ink bottle filled, the ol0 pens re placed with new ones; when a busi ness man has a large undertaking on hand, he first rids his calendar of small appointments and annoying cir cumstances; the clerkic in the store, to show a new line of goods, clears his coumter of everything else; every good business manager, in order to have his men work to advantage, re lieves them first of petty inconveni ences which would hinder their pro gross. This is good businoss manage mont. Time and money are gained tlhereby. The housekeeper, in order to forge ahead in her work, and make timelnlo count, needs to he relieved of clutter and inconvenient arrangements whlich are on all sides a bar to progress. It is hler habit to clear away her dishlles ...

DID YOU[?] [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 18 June 1914
Dld iyou give him a liIt! HeI's a brother of man,. And bouearing about all the burden he can. Did you give him a smile? Hie was downcast and blue, And the smile would have helped him to battle it through. Did you give. lini your hand? He was slipping down hill, And the world, so I fancied, was using him ill. Did you give him a word? Did you show him the road, Or did you just let him go on with his load? Do you know what it means to be losing the fight, When a lift just in time might set everything right? Do you know what it means-just the clasp of a hand, When a man's borne about all a man ought to stand? Did you ask what it was-wny tnhe quivering lip? Vhy the half-suppressed sob, and the scalding tears drip? Were you brother of his when tilhe timo came of need? Did you offer to help hnim, or didn't you heed?

HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 18 June 1914
HOW ARE YOU REGARDING IT? We get from the land what we put into it. If we build permanently we will be sheltered in later days: if we plant wisely we will read the content ment in the shade of the next genera tion. If a farm is regarded as merely a cold, money making enterprise we miss the harvest of good living in later years; but if we regard the farm as a home and cultivate those essen tials of satlifying living, comforts, trees and flowers, and things of beauty we reap a perennial harvest in the ripe years of old age when such things come to have a value far be yond grains and fat beasts.

It is said by some to be an "extra gift," for, no matter where they are or how quick the ques lion Is given, they are able to give an answer or offer an excuse. The fol lowing are rather Interesting: "Is your client pleading insanity?" "I haven't decided," replied the law yer. "IHe wants to look the ground over and see which is the easiest to escape from--the prison or the asy loi.'." A clumsy carver once sent a goose into a lady's lap. ils apology was better than his carving. "Ah, madam, hos potent your charms arel They attract not only the living, but also th1. dead." Oss an examinations paper on "How we are Governed" was the question: "If the Prime Minister, the Chancel lor of the Exchequer, the Home Secro tory, anid all the other members of the Cabinet should die, who would officiate?" A boy of twelve thought for a moment; then the happy ins...
