When is a Woman at Her Best? [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 11 September 1909

When is a Woman at Her Best? When is a woman at her best? 'Why, it depends entirety on the woman. The cling ing, helpless, kittenish type is certainly at her best when she is young. The march of years does not intensify her charms. They too often degenerate into silliness. later in life, say between thirty and forty five. By that time she has found her level. The world has knocked off her corners. Her much learning has naturally made her modest. ' She is often a delightful com panion and trustworthy friend. The simple, homely, lovable type of . woman is probably at her best as a wife and mother. But there is one sort of woman who is al ways at her best, no matter what her age may be. She is bright, clever, intelligent, sympathetic, broad-minded. She has loved and lost, and perhaps sorrowed and strug gled, but neither these things nor the world have harmed her. She makes tiling^ linn— in— ???mi— ? mi mm— i— — iiMMim nmi-i— li mil— I ?— ?!???? |i«— hhm—m— iwwm ?_.. brighter and better...

?« _ii_ _JL_ _! — tL-LA _Ji ? IL_- — -^_-L-¥_l ? i____J ? _il ? _XT_1_ V_-* _JI_LJ© ? h% By Myona. The Servant Question. The present age is acknowledged to be one of unrest. I^ove of excitement and a desire for constant change is the prevailing note, and pervades all classes. The only person who is not supposed to advance with the times, in this respect, is the domestic handmaiden. In the eyes of her mistress Long and faithful service is, owing to this fashion for change, becoming unfortunately scarcer and scarcer, and it behoves mis tresses, instead of bemoaning their hard fate, to recognise that times have altered, and they must offer their domestics some form of attraction. Many a mistress com plains bitterly of the difficulty of keeping servants. Does it ever strike her that by so doing, she gives herself away, for there are still a happy few who are free from the worries of the servant question. What is the secret ? It is generally sus pected that the mistress who can say, ' My...

Shall Women Propose. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 11 September 1909

Shall Women Propose. Shall women propose is not a question that bothers the I-Iopi Indian maiden, for she already does it. A Hopi girl who has made her choice- simply calls on the young gentleman's mother, and asks her consent. Should he be at times unwilling his future bride drags him unceremoniously to the altar vvneiiever a mopi maicien nas inacie up ner mind that the time has come when she should take to herself a hus]?and, she does up her hair in two gigantic whorls, one over each ear. These are danger signals, and sometimes it happens that half a dozen young men will suddenly leave the neigh borhood for the time being on learning that the whorls have appeared upon the head of a young woman.

Don'ts for Girls. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 11 September 1909

Don'ts for Girls. Don't ever nag. If you have to find fault, or speak on any subject that you know will be distasteful say what you have to say and have done with it. There is nothing more exasperating than a continual harking back to an unpleasantness. Don't be annoyed if someone points out a fault or draws your attention to a mistake that you are making. Very few people in this world care enough about us to tell us of our faults, so those who do should be treated with respect. Don't idolise }'our friends. Nothing is a great hindrance to real friendship. Every body is human, and therefore, faulty. Don't imagine that every man who is ordinarily polite is in love with you ; and when you get a lover, don't expect too much from him. Many an engagement is broken off because the girl fancied she had secured an angel, and when she found that her lover was a mere man, after all, felt she couldn't stand it. Don't boast of your superior possessions to a. poorer friend, nor of your knowledge ...

So They Should. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 11 September 1909

So They Should. One glorious, moonlight evening recently a thunderous voice was heard, apparently from higher up the Mountains. Small knots of people were hurrying along the road in the direction from wThence it came. ' What is it ?' 'Who is it ?' was asked on left and right. 'Someone gone mad,' said an old Mountaineer, 'and, good. law, seems as though he is up at the hall. ' With won dering, scared faces they hurried on. Within sight of the hall the voice seemed very near. ' 1, 2, 3, 4, breathe!' it roared. A man stood near the eate. and the pace of the crowd slackened, but as no sound issued from him they hurried up to him. ' Oh, Jack, it's you,' said a girl, ' we thought 3^011 were the madman,' and they clustered round the gate and gazed at the hall, which was lighted up. 'It's jest someone recitin, ' said the mountaineer. 'No,' said Jack, ' it's the schoolgirls getting lessons in physical culture.' ' Good gracious, we thought someone had gone mad,' explained the girl, 'but he ha...

THE HOME PAGE. A Straight Talk to Girls. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 18 September 1909

I The Home Page. 1 By Myona. A Straight Talk to Girls. You must first of all attend to your diet. The girl who has her meals at odd hours, who starves herself one day, and takes big meals the next because she has more time or inclination to eat, must assuredly expect a pasty complexion and .spotty skin. Why? j . isecause oeauty or complexion is entirely I dependent on the state of the blood, and I good, pure blood is in turn to be obtained | only by proper food and thorough digestion . Anything which upsets the digestion is fatal to a good complexion, so that all so called indigestible foods, such as .shellfish, pickles, rich pastry,, pork, and condiments, .are best avoided. . Fried foods, too, are. less digestible than -stewed or boiled, because the envelope of fat around the meat prevents the digestive juices reaching the muscle fibres or fleshy part so readily. Mutton is more easily digested than beef or veal, whilst poultry is wholesome. A very good rule to go on is to take butc...

Correspondence. TO THK KDITOR. Sir, — I am not of an egotistical turn of mind as a rule, but a few particulars re myself will serve as an introductory. I have now been a resident of Katoomba for some two years, and being one of those individuals who manage to scramble through life with a minimum amount of toil and the worries attached thereto, I have ample time to sit back quietly and view the happenings of this town in my own light and form my own opinions re the same. In taking a general interest in all matters that tend to advance Katoomba and its people, I spend most of my spare time in that .splendid In stitution the local School of Arts, and as a man who has travelled, perhaps, a little more than the average person, both in this and other countries, I unhesitatingly say that the popularity of this particular Institution is equal to that of any of a similar character that has yet come under my notice. But there's sometimes a 'fly in the oint ment, and the particular fly in this...

A FUTILE PROPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 18 September 1909

A FUTILE PROPOSITION. The proposition to re-establish the Agri cultural, Horticultural, and Industrial Society in Katoomba did not meet with the encouragement its promoters anticipated, as the meeting; last night fully demon strated. Nor could it be expected. Any effort to establish an Agricultural Society in our midst is simply a waste of time and energy, as it would be as impossible as it would be to establish an Art Society. There are no artists, and there is no Agri culture. There are no industries on the Mountains, and not likely to be an)' for some time to come. The essentials for an Agricultural Show are all wanting. There are neither horses, cattle, sheep, nor pro duce to exhibit, which would be the pro duct of the district, and it is a certainty none would be forthcoming from any other centre. Apart from this, there are alreadjr too many small Agricultural So cieties throughout the State, and the Gov ernment is not inclined' to give any en couragement to new ones. It is tru...

The hall presented a charm ing appearance, the decorations being in keeping and the sweetest harmony possible. The collection of. Daffodils from R. W.
