Courage. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 28 August 1909

Courage. [WRITTEN FOR THE MOUNTAIN KCHO BY R.S.] If there is one attribute necessary to be culti vated to achieve success it is strength of courage. The courage of self determined purpose. In every struggle — physical, political, or whatever it may be — a man needs a good footing, he must feel he has something solid under him, .something he can trust ; it lie wants to rise above tne mediocre he must first obtain absolute control of this price less jewel. Courage is the girding of strength for re sistance against the many adversities he will meet. In other words, it is the rallying around him of . all his scattered forces, that when he is confronted with a difficulty his mind will be in a perfect state of confidence to meet it. None of us can fight difficulties in the air. We must have perfect con fidence in our ability to successfully clear any obstacles that confront us. It is almost impossible for a man to succeed without cultivating this great force. It is the forerunner of confi...

Helps to Health and Beauty. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 28 August 1909

, Helps to. .Health -and -.Beauty* Most people are quite honest in their professed dislike of dust on furniture and clothing. They also show common sense and consistency in guard ing their rooms against the dust clouds outside ; but in fighting the enemy they do many wrong things, and leave undone many that are right. First, as to carpets and furniture — to merely disturb the million particles that rest upon them is to ensure their settling again. The servant who sweeps a room in the ordinary way removes only ' the coarser particles. She makes a cloud of finer particles rise and fall. When the furniture is sub sequently gone over with a dry duster the part icles are simply brushed off, to fall .somewhere else. Dust is not an innocent thine: : it contains aliiiost every conceivable abomination. It is a bringer of disease. When dust is lying on some surface it is usually vi.sible. When in the air it is, as a rule, invisible. Uuless great care is exercised, the air of a house is always...

Fathers-in-Lawv [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 28 August 1909

: ??? ! ? .-Fathera-in-Law*'. ; ?? Mr. Frank Richardson, writing in the 'Pall Mall Magazine' on the above subject, is not per haps so happy as is his wont. Still, lie is light hearted and inoffensively gay. Here is what he says— A father-in-law is a good thing to have. But it is a bad thing to be. Numbers of men become engaged to girls simply because they are pleased with their prospective fathers-in-law. It is very rarely in these days that one hears complaints of fathers-in-law. And if }rou come to think of it this is an astounding thing, because there is no school for what one may call legal paternity, I/egal paternity is not the right name to call it, Out it is tne nearest approacn to a prize word that I can think of, 111 our time everything that can be taught is taught ; numbers of things that cannot be taught are taught. For instance, there are professors who, for an adequate fee, will teach you — or in deed me, or possibly a person of inferior intellect — to be a genius. But ...

Consumption in the Family. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 28 August 1909

Consumption in the Family. Although it is perfectly true that the children of a consumptive parent may have the taint in their blood, another fact is more frequently responsible for the disease attacking member after member of the same family. This is infection. The very first case results in the house being steeped in the poison of the disease. It is on the walls, clothing, furni ture, and food. All in the house breathe and swallow this ; but all are not equally susceptible. So the conquests are single, and usually at long intervals. In any case each new victim is in turn a centre of infection, a creator of the deadly germs. And here a word as to these ' germs. ' A dis T\o1 1O+ -lit f Moir ovicfftiiHA -it? 1^\tr -i-t/-v 11100HC rovo People think the word ' germ ' a convenient one for expressing a dangerous influence not clearly understood.

Cutting Down Expenses. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 28 August 1909

Cutting Down Expenses. It would be well if families were to begin the New Year by a thorough inquiry into their financial condition and prospects. A searching analysis of this kind, set down in black and white, would be edifying to many : a husband, and wife , and, inmost cases, could not fail to simplify their method of living, and consequently add to their hap piness. ? Complete frankness upon this subject be tween husband and wife will enhance the help-each-other spirit so essential to the perfect home. , What wonder }i -the wife becomes 'e'xtrjiva£aii£. wheii- J tlie^liiu'sband gives the impressidnlof wealth aiit| has not bravery enough to tell her the truth about his finances?

THE HOME PAGE. Girls Men Shouldn't Marry. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 28 August 1909

[?] By Myona. Girls Men Shouldn't Marry. The other day at my club I was chatting with a friend about the sort of girl a man ought to avoid when he is contemplating marriage . When I say the sort of girl I don ' t mean just a mere brand, like a Virginia cigarette. No ; I mean a type — a type so aggressive as almost to knock you down. We agreed that of all the types, perhaps the one to be most carefully steered clear of was the expensive girl, the girl who is perfectly charming and delightful so long as you'll give Her every mortal ?thing she wants. You take her out for an afternoon's shop ping — I mean, she takes you out ! Heavens, the things she'll expect you to buy ! I once did it, so I ought to be allowed to know. Since then I've grown wiser, Ill-natured people might , say,, mor.e : .stingy \ Anyhow, if the latter is the case, I have more than compensated for it in the past. I really feel that I must have been awfully in love with that girl to let myself in for such.au overwhelmin...

Marriages that Might have been—but for Mamma, [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 4 September 1909

Marriages that Might have been— but for Mamma* There is one thing that really does vex poor little Cupid. He hates to see so many girls in the world unmarried. It isn't right, he grunts. Every woman ought to sit at the head of her husband's table ; and if he had his own way the woman who might marry and won't would be exported to an island in the far Pacific. Of course, Cupid is aware that there are plenty of women who have loved a man and lost him, and never care for anybody else again. He sympathises with these women. ?'Bu,t. ..the number of really nice girls who never have a husband or dear little children and are yet fitted to be such excellent wives , and mothers is appalling. Cupid complains and looks round. He wants to find out the cause, and from in quiries he has caused to.be made he finds that the meddling mother is at the bottom „? of the trouble as a rule. There are three kinds of meddling, mothers, arid I really don't know which is the worst. First on the list is the ta...

In conversation with a housewife only a few days ago, in speaking of her maid, cal ling her by her first name, I asked the maid's nationality, when she answered, ?quickly, ' Oh, I don't know. I don't even know her last name. They come and go, and life is too short to bother about them.' Under such circumstances our domestic problem will never be solved. As soon as you have selected your ser vants, or before, find out who they are, and if they have friends and associates. Re member they need entertainment and com pany just as other people do. Let them have an evening at home, when they can receive their friends, and their afternoon and evening out, when they can return their calls. Make it your business to know who their callers are, and speak to their friends pleasantly without being familiar in the .slightest degree. If you employ a nurse for your child, remember that one or two sentences spoken in the hearing of your child may ...

The lecture wae illustrated by a large number of lan tern views, specially taken by Walker at various . times depicting scenes and places along the course of the Western Road. After detailing a few events in connection with Australian History prior to the year 1813, the lecturer spoke of the many unsuccessful attempts that had been made to scale the mountains, until the time came when Messrs. Blaxland, Ivawson and Wentworth per formed their memorable feat of discovering a track and opened for all time the great route to the West. Following closely Blaxlaud's journal, minute information was given of the work as it proceeded from day to day, and the lecturer's re marks were illustrated by views along the old and new roads, embracing old landmarks, sections of roadway, and maps ...
