WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 29 April 1914

WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. "For -women, a capacity for teara Is wortJi cultivating," says a famous ! ■"beauty speciality." "Tears—warm i and ready ones—arcs a sure preserva- i tive of feminine beauty. "Tears are the natural outlet of emO' . tion, a iort of liquid lightning-rod which dissipates excitement and pas- . sion. "The woman who cannot weep ia she who jkeeps up her powers of thinking, and whose fscia/^ines,- and grey hairs come reanily. Not only does a lack of tears score heavily against one's freshness of face, but it has a marked effect in general tem» perament. "Women who weep easily have cor- j rosnondin.^ly li.elit hearts, tender, de- i monstrative. and impulsive ways, and a charm which dry-eyed women lack" j

OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. MINISTERIAL POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 29 April 1914

OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. MINISTERIAL POLICY. Of surprises the Governor-Gen eral's speech was absolutely devoid. But those who love political ex citement have the satisfaction of knowing that the position is rich in uncertainty. The unexpected can not happen, for no sane onlooker cherishes any definite expectation. The Parliament returned in May last is a peculiar one, and whilst it lives anything is possible. Of its remarkable features not the least noteworthy is, that at any moment the Opposition can send Ministers to the country, but that Ministers are powerless to force an appeal on the Opposition. The Senate com mands the position, it can reject the test Bills, it can pass them ; the Ministerial majority in the Re presentatives can merely send them up to be treated as Labor thinks fit. Ministers are to be congratulated on the dignity and dec? aination with which they have faced the difficulties which confronted them, as soon as the Opposition decreed that no useful legislation of ...

BABY'S FLOCKS AND HERDS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 29 April 1914

BABY'S FLOCKS AND HERDS. As soon at; a Lapp baby is born, a reindeer is presented to him. This reindeer , is literally his slart in life, for not only that deer, but all its young —and as they grow up, all th.eir young deer—belong to the child. When he is of age, he.has quite a herd of his own. This custom is of much greater use to him than if.every aunt, uncle and cousin he had in the world pre* sented him with the heaviest silver spoon they could find. Variations of temperature m the ocean do not exist at a greater depth than 600 feet. Below that the tern* perature- never varies.

The police have completed the canvass of the electorate of Hamp den, and as a result of the work of the constabulary 2241 names will be added to the roll.
