WOMEN AND LOVE. What Wise Men Have Said of Both. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 27 June 1914
WOMEN AND' LOVE. What Wise Men Have Said of Both. Love gives little, and Is not bought. -Longfellow. Kindness in women, not their beau. teous looks, shall win my love. Shakespeare, A fair test and measure of civill. satlon Is the influence of good women, -Emerson. Women are a new race, recreated since the world received Christianity. -Beecher. The brain women never interest us like the heart women; white roses please less than red.-Holmes. Most of.their faults women owe to us, whilst we are indebted to them for most of our better qualities, Charles Lemele. Let the words of a virgin, though in a good cause, and to as good pur. Pose; be' neither violent, many, nor first, nor last. At is less shame for a virgin to be lost in a blushing all. once than to be found in a bold elo quence.-Quarles. Women have more good sense than men. They have fewer pretensions are less implicated in theories, and judge of objects more from their im.r mediate and involuntary impressions on the mind, and, th...

ENGINEERING SWALLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 27 June 1914
ENGINEERING SWALLOWS. A colony of bank swallows taught a young but observing engineer how to build a tunnel that his more learned superiors had refused to undertake, North of Burlington, Vermont, U.S.A., lies a broad, sandy plain high above the level of Lake Cham plain, through which the Central Rail road was to be carried by a tunnel. The sand, destitute of moisture, would hot cohere; but crumbled away as soon as an excavation was made. After several costly trials the engin ears decided that the tunnel was im practicable, " A young man in the engineer's olice said he could tunnel the sank bank at a small cost, lie said he could build the tunnel for so tlany dollars a running foot; but that he couldn't expect the railway people to act upon his opinion ,when so many American and European engineers had declared the project impracticable. The managers, however, gave him a contract to build fifty feet of the tunnel, on the face of the sand-bank lie marked the line of an arch larger than...

SHEEP FARMING FLUKE IN SHEEP: ITS CAUSE AND PREVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 27 June 1914
SHEEP FARMING FLUKE IN ,SHEEP: ITS CAUSE AND PREVENTION, 'The disease affecting sheep and known as "fluke" is variously de scribed in different parts 'as "rot," "poke," "bane," The disease is due to the presence In the liver of a worm, in shape like a fluke fish, and hence its common name. This worm or fluke is about an inch in length and half an inch at Its greatest width. Its presence in the liver produces disease of that organ, and the symptoms shown by the sheep call be traced to changes caused in the liver by the fluke. How does the fluke get into the liver? Flukes in the liver produce eggs, and these eggs pass with the b'o Into the intestine, and are voided with the dung. The eggs hatch out. side the body, and give rise to small creatures that in no way resemble the fluke. They are capable of movement in water, and, therefore, damp, moist places are favorable to their develop ment. In such places certain minute snails usually abound, and in the bod les of these snails the crea...
Her Precious Thumb. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 27 June 1914
Her Precious Thumb. A lady sued a railway company for £5000 for the loss of her thumb, which had been desn'oyed in a col.. ilslon, and the opposing counsel open. odil the defence with the words; "Five thousand pounds for the loss of a thumb! Well, gentlemen of the jury, the only justification I can see for so exorbitant a claim is that it was the thumb wvith which the lady kept her husband under." To keep cheese for some time, and prevent it becoming mouldy or dry, wrap it up in a cloth damped with vinegar and keep it in a dish.

SECRET OF A SUCCE8S. "Now toll me," he said, "what are your prospects?" "My prospects," I replied, "are ex. collent." "That may be; but if you wish me to sanction your engagement to my daughter, I must ask you to be a lit. tie more specific. At present, all I know is that you are at the Bar. What exactly are your prospects there?" "Prospects," and I leant back In his armchair, "are, in essence, noth Ing more than a state of mind. The word is derived from the Latin 'pros* piclo,' I look forward; and what I see when I look forward constitutes my prospects. Now that, of course, var* iea from day to day.

WHEN NOT TO MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 27 June 1914
WHEN NOT TO MARRY, Do not marry to reform a man. He who would not reform before mar* riage is not likely to do so afterwards. There is no more fallacious hope a girl can entertain than that of chang ing an unreformed rake into a good husband. Don't marry a man to whom "Yes" has been said in a moment of mlistak. en sympathy or sentimental ecstasy. Sympthy is not love, neither is ec stasy; the latter when carried to ex cess is a form of hysteria, and both are poor foundations for matrimony. Don't marry a man who has only his love to recommend him; there are other qualities requisite in husbands quite as important as this. A head is wanted as well as a heart; a guide, a comforter, a stay, a friend as well as an impassioned Romeo spouting lava-like sentences of devo. tion. Very often the more lava-like Romeo is the less likely to earn suf fliclent to pay the butcher's bill. Don't marry a man for a livelihood; there are better, safer, and more lione orable ways by which women can earn a ...
WOMAN'S WORLD. KEEPING YOUR LIPS FROM SLIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 27 June 1914
WOMAN'S WORLD. KEEPING YOUR LIP8 FROM 8LIPS. In home and social life generally, gossip should be feared as an enemy, and not be tolerated as a welcome guest. It Is ever so much safer and better to talk of things rather than persons, thus preventing that enemy, ill-natured gossip, from coming In. 1[ake it a rule, and let It be strictly observed, not to say anything about the faults of another 'unless there is absolute necessity for you to do so. This necessity may arise, and your own judgment can guide you about the ngtter. But where it can be avoided, do not talk of the faults or evil doings of others. Why, indeed, should you do so? You know yourself that you have faults, few or many, and that there are many things you may have done which you prefer should not be repeat ed. Well, then, exercise the same charity to others that you would have extended to yourself. Another thing to bear In mind Is that, If you talk of what Is to the dis. advantage of another, what you say will doubtles...

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 27 June 1914
FOOTBALL, Though Northcote were only defeated by a narrow margin of points by Prah ran in the opening of tho'season, the second game, played at Toorak park on Saturday, resulted in an overwhelming victory for the home team, The first quarter honors were fairly even, Prahran scoring 2.1 to 0.4, and there was every prospect of a good game at that stage. Accurate shooting by Prahran during the succeeding quarter, however, com pletely altered the aspect of the match -10,3 to 2.5. being the scores at half time.
