THE IMPARTIAL WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 July 1914

THE IMPARTIAL WOMAN. She~iloes not take sides. She is al ways ready to look at a matter from every point of view. If you got to her with a long complaint of Kitty's spite-, ful temper, she -will not side with you all the way, and then when she meets Kitty' take her part in turn. She will listen to you, sympathise with you, soothe your wounded feelings. But she will; point out to you Kitty's side of the question too. There is nothing partisan about her. She is broad minded enough to take in all points of view, and firm enough to sum them up impartially. * "

SOME THINGS TO AVOID. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 July 1914

SOME THINGS TO AVOID. There are a few things that a worn "71 should never be guilty of doing. She should never laugh when slight ing remarks are made about one of her own.sex. She should never speak of her efforts as "very well for a woman." She. should never belittle her own sex by assuming ignorance of or. a lack of interest in questions that are of vital importance to thou sands of other women. A woman with an assured place in society can help those less happily situated by a frank air of comradeship. She can help '!irso who are struggling for a liveli iior:d by giving work and speak!/".g of woman can find ways constantly to liolp other women in one way or an-' other.

SUN CURE FOR CONSUMPTION. A Wonderful Discovery. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 July 1914

SUN CURE FOR CONSUMPTION. A Wonderful Discovery. Doctors and-scientists all over the world have for a long time recognised that the sun possesses wonderful healing powers, and of late many of them have been making a close study of its efficacy in regarU to certain diseases. The result has been some astonishing discoveries, the most im portant of which, perhaps, is that the ?healing virtues of sunlight have been found particularly helpful for tuber culosis of the bones and joints, and an excellent remedy for cases of acute muscular rheumatism. The general method adopted when pursuing this treatment is to expose the naked oody to solar rays, the treatment being tended heliotherapy. Dr. Armand Delille. a famous French physician, gives it as his emphatic opinion that all forms of external tuberculosis are amenable to this treatment, "with results," "to quote his own words, "at times so stupe fying that they seem to touch on mir acle." And a number of other eminent physicians have testif...

PAMELA'S CHOiC By FRANCES BROWN. "We've been engaged for five eaFs, Pamela, and I'm getting tired of Suit ing. When are you going to tarry me?" James Dawson, ^ stalwart ;>ung fanner of thirty, 'doked frow;i»gly at the girl who stood'bare-head^! lie fore him in the waning light of a chill, November afternoon. He spoke with irritable impatience, and the girl sigh ed as she glanced back over her shoul der at a 16w-lying farmstead that nest led hi the valley some hundred^ yards away. A few minutes since she had heard her lover riding by, and had run to the gate to give him a passing greeting. "In a year's' time, Jim," she said, and there was a note of appeal in her sweet, low tones as she laid a" well shaped but work-coarsened hand on his arm. "I can't leave my mother until Tina is able to take my place, and-and a year will soon pass, dear." "A year!" she echoed . scornfully. "You talk of years as lightly as ot weeks!

THE RIVER NILE. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 16 July 1914

THE RIVER NILE. The Nile valley is the great bird road running north and south. . The heron fishes ? in every shallow. The ibis haunts ' the banks. The pelicans stand in rows at the time of the in undation. Eagles, kites and ospreys are common. On every sandbank, black or black and white vultures bop about and flap their outspread, drag gled wings. A kingfisher, more com mon and more soberly, clad than ours, performs wonderful feats of diving within a few paces of the onlooker. The little sand snipe and the true snipe- prevail, and the qyail visits the country in immense numbers in the spring. Owls haunt the palm trees and ruins, and pigeons, which are reared in every village for the sake of the manure, are probably more numerous than in any other country in the world. It is delightful to note the tameness of the birds, of Egypt. They-enter rooms and houses through windows or crevices left for "ventilation, and once inside, hop fear lessly about the floor, picking up stray crumbs. I...

A warder con ducted him to the station, bade him a friendly farewell with a few kindly words, and left him. lie was a free man. He hardly realised it as the train steamed away from the little station, and he left frowning Port land, with its blealc rocks, its quar ries, its outlook over illimitable sea, behind him. Tho one all-pervading thought in his mind was one of re venge. Wasn't it natural? Was he to he blamed for wishing with all his heart and strength that the man whb had deliberately^left him to suffer for five hideous years in a convict pri son, for a crime he had never com mitted, should be confronted with his own villainy and brought to book?
