WOMAN CONDEMNS SMOKING. "1 haven't much patience with the people who object to smoking, because it is ' nil ladylike, * " (says a London writer.) "Cycling fd'r women was 'unladylike' not very long ago; so was tbo wearing of tailonnado coats and skirts! For a goOd many years, the 'nice girl' never waltzed. She only danced jijjlkus, tpiadrillos, and so 011, and loft "waltzing to the kind of peo ple. who dicF.biuuiy hugs:.aml turkey trots a season or two back.

IS ROMANCE POSSIBLE NOW? [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 2 May 1914

IS ROMANCE POSSIBLE NOW Miss 15. Tennyson Jesse, the author of "The Milky Way,'' :i novel much read in England just now, ? gave an answer to an interviewer, the answer of the best typo of modern woman, denying that romance should be con fined merely to love in its narrow sense. "Why," said she, "surely this country that, has produced Hying is ;>.s romantic as any there has been." But the interviewer persisted in regarding the word as firmly linked with "love."' '.Romance, as implying glamour, h.nv cver, Miss Jessie hates. " Glamour' "admits 110 faults. It 's illusion. It idealises a man, and jvhen the fact is realised that there uro heaps of shortcomings in him love flies, for it was given to somebody who never existed. "The twentieth century is analytical and not romantic, in love," continued Miss Tennyson .Jesse, and a good thing, too. It saves itself so many blunders aud so much pain . 1 wish the praiup tial period were made less of in a girl 's mind by, her elders than it is....

- HOUSEHOLD HINTS. A euro for ants of all kinds, cock roaches, ami any other posts that in vndo tlio panty, is green walnuts. Place in the closets, cupboards, or any place whero they are likely to be. The cure is effectual and the remedy eloau. When you clean the ebony brushes on your toilet table, rub a little vase lino ovor the ?backs before you wash the bristles, as this prevonts the soda or ammonia in the water from injuring the ebony. The vaselino should after wards be removcfl by polishing the backs with a dry cloth. To clcau much-soiled hands do not go to work roughly with brush and soda water, but loosen the dirt by rubbing the hands well with swoet oil, or even lard or dripping. Then wipe off the grease as much as possible with a piece of soft paper or old rag, and wash the hands with warm water anil soap.

SOME PROBLEMS IN WHEAT FARMING. (Writlun i-iK'cialJy for tlio "Fjirniors' Ou/xtto'"' bv Mr. J. If. Hcl'shauge).

I.ami out of cultivation means a sheer loss to tho national wealth, as well as a lo^s of occupation in tho country, and a congestion of labor in cities.

PERFUMES NO LONGER CONDEMNED. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 2 May 1914

PERFUMES NO LONGER . CONDEMNED. A Home authority states that pec-' fumes are no longer considerod con demned as effeminate. Bath crystals are among the moro popular forms of perfume, as they are refreshing and also soften the water. Public taste now shows a strong' ten dency towards the mysterious scent, so that the old simple scents like violet, rose, ami lily of the valley are giving way to perfumes composed of perhaps as many as iifty dill'erout ingredients -perfumes, for instance, like Shem-cl Nessim. There is as much harmony and discord in perfumery as iu music, Harmony in the toilet can only be achieved by the uso of the same per fume throughout, while, iu the mak ing of eumposito perfumes, the sniailei-t. grain too much or too little of -my ingredient will cause as much discord as when a pianist plays a wrong note.

TJio change in Paris fashions, where by absurdity is to give way to com inonsense, is, we are told, duo rather to the ridicule of tho caricaturist than to the thunder of tho pulpit.

ONCE MORE DUAL-PURPOSE. The dual-purpose ghost will not down, ami yet for all its bobbing up here ami there ami gibbering', it is nothing more than a ghost. It is a ha If-way propo sition where none but half-way dairy farmers will care to stop and lose.time and money. A recent number of the "Texas iitoeknian and Parmer" con tains a contribution from Mr. B. 0. Cowan, in which* the author contro verts some of the statements and reas oning made by '.'Hoard's Dairyman'1 in one of its recent utterances upon this subject. Most of Mr. Cowan's article is a re-hash of ancient history, but lie occasionally makes a concrete state ment. Lilco all other advocates of this delusion, he completely ignores the two basic, objections to the theory:-(1) That it is a subversion of true breed ing principles to attempt to unite pro Jitably two such opposing tempera ments as the milk temperament and nio beef temperament; (2) that the produc tion of such cattle is uneconomic, so far at .least as the dairy f...
