SHE WAS THE NECK. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 July 1914

SHE WAS THE NECK. There are husbands who, among male companions, like to have it supposed that they are just a lit tle tyrannical at home. One such man, who hat] two or three friends at his house one evening, remarked, as they were chatting together com foriahly at a rather late hour: "Yes, 1 do what I like at home. My wife, she has to bend to my will, I can tell you. In mv own house I'm a re gular Julius Caesar." His wife came into the room in lime to iiear (Ill's last sentence. The tyrant of his household looked a lit tle uneasy, but his wife neither frowned nor, apparently, paid any at tention to the remark. But, after a moment, she remarked, very positive ly: '(lentlemeu, it is late, and Julius Caesar lias got to go to bed." Whereupon the husband arose, stammered his excuses, and retired, leaving his guests to find their way o t as best, they could. It was in another household that, the husband once remarked to his wife: "You know, my dear, that I'm the he-id of the house." "You...

BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 July 1914

BUYING THE ENGAGEMENT RING. A most amusing thing'is to watch a man buying an engagement ring for his sweetheart. He is modest. He feels as if the shopman will suspect that he is engaged if he does not take care. He believes that the faintest suggestion of what he really wants is tantamount to disclosing the name of the girl and all about their devotion. "Will you let me look at some rings?" "Certainly, sir." A pile of malo rings is laid before him. He pretends to examine them critically, but the expression on his face tells that he is quietly wonder ing how on earth he is' going to get .a lady's ring under the pretence of buying one for a man. They are passed over in review. He selects none. He walks over to another case. "What are these?" "Oh, these are ladies' rings." "But they'll do for gentlemen as. well? X rather like that pattern." "Certainly," blandly answers the shopman, who is used to that sort of thing. At length the young fellow tries them on his finger. He never picks ' ...

DAIRYING. THE VALUE OF THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY. The most obvious and appreciable value of the dairy industry to a State is found in the wort.li of its products (writes the "Farm and Home").
