WANTED-ENCOURAGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 19 May 1914
WANTED-ENCOURAGERS. While only tho very few road poetry, or really euro for it, thcro are count less thousands to whom a smilo nud the fitting word'at the fitting moment would moan just everything. And thoy so seldom get it. I do not think wo encourage one another very much. And the trend of tho age, to us© one of tho catch phrases of tho day, is dis tinctly discouraging. It is a sort of lacv and hustle and push, in winch the easily discouraged will undoubtedly lag behind. Very high up among the people who do things would I place tho one who encourages out of pure kind ness and a desiro to help. Mistakes are made, of course, nud sonio cjuito useless and futilo effort may be glori fied for tho moment; but where is tho ultimate harm?

CATARRH. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 19 May 1914
CATARRH. * Catarrh is an infectious disorder caused by germs. The iirs'L sign of having taken cold is a watery discharge, from tho nose. This is not- catarrh; it is etfiyzA. This watery discharge ts a verv interesting phenomenon. It is muure pouring out serum for tho purpose,, of killing tho germs in tho noso. AVhen ono takes cold, tho mu cous mcmbrano becomes consented; these germs are warmed up, atul 'they begin to grow ami multiply. »So naturo pours out iv Hood of serum, having germicidal properties, to do .stroy thorn. This is nature's mot hod of disinfecting the nose, and defending ,oiio from catarrh. Hut if tho pro cess goes on, if tho balance of tho cir culation is not restored, and the waste matters removed from tho blood fjo that tho body can return to its nor mal state, tho serum ceases to llorr, but the germs which are in tho nose grow and devolop. Then thero is a thick yellowish or whitish discharge, which is mucous mixed with germs ami blood corpuscles. These corpus cle...

QUARRELS. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 19 May 1914
QUARRELS. Wo can forgive a man who hates a quarrel if ho quarrels hardly or ovon unfairly; ho is so unused to tho ganjo that ho cannot bo cxpeoted to play it kindly wlien it is forced upon him j ho is embittered by his natural anger ihat ho should bo forced to quarrel at all. 13ut tlie quarrelsome man who quarrels with a purpose is as base as the eardsharper. Ho profits by the weaknesses of others on a protoueo of sharing them. In fact, ho is a luuft that even the most quarrelsome would never quarrel with twice, any more than a'gambler will knowiugly play twieo with a cardsliarpcr; for in .iiarreJling, as iu gambling, thero is ouo law that should never bo broken just because both aro rather lawless pursuits, and that is the law of fair play. -"The Times."

According to those people who write books on furniture and decoration, wo are full of artistic vice; hut at least it seems that every day wo learn to possess inoro of tho courage of our con victions, of our incomes, and our par ticular methods of gaining a living. If a cottage is our domicile wo buy eottago furniture, and endeavour to preserve the simple atmosphere of this most modest of dwelling-places. Tho flat lias a treatment of its own. SkiJJ and ingenuity are. taxed to their utmost in the utilisation of apace. Even villadom, tho most obdurately ortho dox. is clearing its room, dismantling its window*, and learning to put utility before parade. Some women have actually dared to do away with draw ing roomg, and have substituted music rooms, studios, and common rooms in stead. Already there is no longer olio type' of arrangement for every kind of homo.
