Still Generous. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 1 July 1914
Still Generous. . It was her birthday, but Ue had r shed off to business with just i lie usual duty-peek at her upturned face, and she was left to worry the day through, oppressed by the thought that his once ardent love was waning. When he returned at night, •wi.-heil her "many happy returns," gave her a full-size hug, and placed a tiny pac ket in her hand, she knew that -he had wronged him. He was still the same generous-hearted Romeo who had wooed and won her. "And I thought you'd forgotten all about it, Harold," she cooed, as she carefully unwrapped the package. Then a black-edged expression nuk a front Boat on her features. 'Tine cleaners!" she gasped. "Yes, pet," he said; "I knew they'd please you. You never did like mo to use your hat-pins!" The body is tuned by proper exer cise, and the mind by mirth.

BIRCHIP v. WATCHEM. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 1 July 1914
BIRCHIP r. WATCHJEIVf. A great crowd journeyed from Birchip to Watchem on Wednesday last to wit ness the match between the Birchip and Walchem football teams, It was generally anticipated that the game would be one of the best of the season, and these anticipations were fully realised ; a better finish to a game has seldom been witnessed in this part of the State. Walchem had a full team, but Birchip were a long time in getting a team together, and when the game . started at 12 minutes to four, they were one man short. However, shortly after commencing Frawley filled the vacant place in the team, The first quarter was very evenly contested, the play being of a give and take description. Watchem scored first with a sixer, but on the bounce, Birchip rushed the ball forward, and a minor resulted. From the kick off the ball was again returned and Birchip hoisted the two flags. Watchem weie not to bo denied and after some good play a sixer was booted. Off again and j?irchip forwarded and...
HARM IN GLOOMY HOUSEHOLDS. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 1 July 1914
HARM IN GLOOMY HOUSEHOLDS. Boys and girls are often spoi!ed by parental gloom. The father never unbends. The mother's rheumatism hurts so shekdoes not see how little Maggie can ever laugh. Childish curiosity is denounced as impertin ence. The dining-room is a parlia niont; and everything in everlasting crder. Balls and tops in thRt house are a nuisance, and the play that the boy i. expected most to relish is geo ,n trv a little - sweetened .with the chalk of blackboards. For cheerful reading, the father recommends Young's "Night Thoughts" and Har vey's "Meditations Among the Tombs." At I he first chance, the boy will break loose. With one grand leap he will clear the catechisms. He will burst iiway into all riotous living. He will be so glad to get, out of Egypt that lie will'jump into the RecL Sea. The hardest colts to catch are those that have a long while been' locked up. Hestraints are necessary, but •here must be.some outlet. Too high i dam will ""erflow and inundate all :lie m...
GOLF. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 1 July 1914
GOLF. Some very novel and interesting com petitions were held at the local links on -Wednesday when a good number of members of the club met and hold a gymkhana. Tiio event that was perhaps the cause of the most merriment (and disgust on the part of the contestant) was tho box drive. With a good dis tance, and under ordinary circumstances to drive a splendid ball is perhaps not one of the simple or easy strokes of golf, but to perform this feat when perched up on a box some two feet high and with a driver suffieienty long to reach (ho ball demands, under conditions such as these, much judgment as well as con trol of the club and indeed some of our local champions found this to bo a feat beyond their capabilities. Of the ladies Mrs Thompson drove the longest and straightest ball and thus secured first prize, and in tho men's event Mr J. Hancock drove the longest ball and carried off the prize. Another item in the day's programme was the barrel competition. An ordin ary small barrel w...
FRUIT ONCE A DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Birchip Advertiser and Watchem Sentinel — 1 July 1914
- FRUIT ONCE A DAY. Everyone ought to take a little fruit once a day. The money is well spent The maintenance of health always costs something, and fruit should be one item in the list. One may say that all ages are suitable lor fruit diet. It is one of the pleasantest I sight's in all medical experience to , watch a tiny baby responding to the I proper treatment for rickets. Rickets Us due to bad hygiene, bad food, had I air, load surroundings. In the diet for the rickety baby fruit-juice plays a very important part. If a baby (loos not appear to be thriving, and yet has nothing very definite the matter, the addition of a little fruit-juice to the daily dietary will often be found very useful. A teaspoonful of orange-jtiico or grape-juice taken three or four times a % day is about the right am ount. It: may be varied according to the age and size of the child.
