I changed colour, too, and so did all tlio girls I knew, but wo nevor lookod charming wo used to look patch-faced frights. Instead of a "dolicato flush crooping op into my chookB," a3 tho stories say, my noso and ears uood to turn a bril liant, staring rod.

FUNNY SCENE ON AN OMNIBUS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 June 1914
FUNNY SCENE ON AN OMNIBUS. Rather a risky substitute for a bat tlefield is the top of an omnibus, but there have been not a few Homeric struggles on "imperiales," as they are termed in Paris. The latest adventure, says the Paris c&lt; rrespondent of the "Daily Tele graph," of the sort owed Its origin to a very comical mistake. At a parti cular Parisian ofllce there ascended to the summit of one of these vehicles an Individual of very comfortable di mensions, who was speedily immersed in the study of his newspaper, a pretty and well-dressed woman, many years his junior, and an elderly man, who looked like a retired officer. The omnibus had hardly started when the old beau began to cast glances ex pressive of intense admiration at his fair neighbor, and although he re ceived no encouragement he contin ued his attempt to get up a flirtation with her quite unabashed. Suddenly the lady rose to her feet, at the Im minent risk of toppling over, and screamed out, "You rufllan! Not c...

Who will consent That she, who hither came to pray, Has a heart as innocent As yours was in Its gladsome day? And who can tell If the praise she offers in this throng Is as acceptable' As once ascended with your song? Whalever land Claimed your -nativity, there The same kind Hand Created you, that did this lady fair. Throughout your days Your little throat was made and meant . To sing God's praise, Unharmed, a harmless Instrument. And the religion that Would take your pretty form and pin .It to a ladyls hat May point to Heaven-but ne'er enter in.
NO MERIT IN HAVING A HARD TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 June 1914
NO MERIT IN HAVING A HARD TIME. There Is no merit in having a hard time in tlila life. There is no sin in merely having an, easy time here. No man can confidently expect to be a gainer. In the next life, because he has suffered much in thiB life. Nor neSd any person lack hope for the life beyond, because he has 'found joy and had pleasure in the present life year by year. A life rightly spent may give joy In the present, and may have promise of the life that is to come, if we would-hope for the future, let us use well the present.
UNSKILFUL TEMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 June 1914
UNSKILFUL TEMPER. One would think that there could be no end to the resources of anger. Men use it in so squandering a way, that one is surprised that the stock does' not run out. But even this wastefulness of the precious commo dity is not censurable as the want of \ skill and good'taste with which it is employed. It is not economised. It is not put to good purposes. It is squandered. It is not skilfully shot, as a marksman shoots at a target. Indeed, men show clearly enough that they do not know tile value of anger. A good article of anger is worth far more than the best gun-powder, and ought to ibe used with an economy at least equal to that of the sportsman, who never burns powder needlessly. What should be thought of a sportsman who should go 011 firing his gun out of the window? Or what of one who should go about tile yard, the garden, ex ploding his gun every hour into the air, hitting nothing? Yet so do men let off the precious force of temper invaluable treasure of anger.

CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 12 June 1914
CULTIVATE GOOD HABITS. The education of an infant should commence as soon jfs it is born a3 good or bad habits are formed during childhood. If, for example, a baby ir fed every time it cries, it soon begins to understand that by crying it gets what it desires, but by gratifying its demands against our better judgment we are instilling into the unconscious infant a lesson in selfishness and greed which may persist through its whole life. A habit scarcely less harmful is giving it something to suck to "keen it quiet." Many parents leave the duty of In stilling good habits into their chil dren to the teachers in schools, for getting that by the time school life begins habits have been formed that may mar or make the child's career for iife. Habits anil character are bound together; one cannot have a good character with bad habits. The habit of obedience is one of the first to be enforced. Very early in life a child will recognise right from wroiu;. but perhaps at first the wrong path i...

CHAPTER XVI. It was on the afternoon of the Wy that Shamus O'Doyle started for Ire land and Karl Kruger took boat from Southampton to his native land, also that Peter Bellairs came home rather later than usual and requested his wife to send Sheila with a message to the Duchess,, saying that Tie par ticularly wished to speak to her alone.

The time had passed when he could .scold Margaret for what she had done, and the unhappy man was de termined to get rid of her. He en tered her boudoir, sat down and said abruptly: "I have a few things to say to you, Margarfct." "Yes, Peter," she rep'ied, looking at him with frightened blue eyes.

Husband Housekeeper. SAVED £100 A YEAR. While women everywhere are invading the spheres of man, an isolated endeavor to retaliate has been made by a Highgate house holder (according to " The Daily Mail-") He has for the past six months taken over the reins of housekeeping "just to show my wife how it ought to be done" and he has done it well. In six months £50 has been saved, with no diminution of comfort- This is the tale as told by the hero of the northern heights "My wlte wanted me to keep a car.
