From a letter by Mrs. Nellie Kinchins ton, who is assumed to bo "Mrs." be cause of her intimate knowledge of Mother's job. Shove it on to Mother, Mother takes the lot, Mother totes the baby Wintry days or hot; Mother carts the cabbage In a little bag. Every time the familee Goes on some excursion spree, Beach or bushland picnic tea. Mother humps the swag. Billy's pants are going, Mother gets a job; Kitchen floor is dirty, Mother takes the swab; Trouble in the union. Father's out of work, Vital principles at stake.

HARM IN GLOOMY HOUSEHOLDS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 13 June 1914
HARM IN GLOOMY HOUSEHOLDS. Boys and girls are often spoiled by parental gloom. -The iather never unbends. The mother's rheumatism hurts so slie does not see how little Maggie can ever laugh. ClilldiBh curiosity is denounced as impertin ence. The dining-room is a parlia ment, and everything In everlasting order. Balls and tops in that house are a nuisance, and the play tha£ the boy is expected most to relish is geo m try, a little sweetened with the chalk o[ blackboards. For cheerful reading, the father recommends Young's "Night Thoughts" and Har vey's "Meditations Among the Tombs." At the first chance, the boy will break loose. With one grand leap he will clear the catechisms. He will •burst away into all riotous living. He will be so glad to get out of Egypt that he will jump into the lied Sea. The hardest colts to catch are those that have a long while been locked up. Restraints are necessary, but there must be some outlet. Too high a dam will ->--erflo\v and inundate all thy m...

DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 13 June 1914
DREAMS AND NIGHT TERRORS. "Anyone who has not the nature of a cabbage is neurotic," said Dr. Leon ard Guthrie in a lecture on "The Ner vous Child" before the Child Study Socicty.

A stuffy bed room will make it dream of being strangled. Cold limbs often cause a child to get terrors of icebergs or ava anches, and lying in an uncom fortable position brings dreams of tor ture chambers. All its mental re spouses to sensations are quadrupled in its dreamB, and they bring on in tensified memories of past troubles only faintly connected with...

HER BONNET. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 13 June 1914
HER BONNET. When mooting bells began to toll, Ami pious follai began to pasa, She deftly Lied her bonnet on, The saber meeting lasB, All In her nent, white-curtained room, before her tiny looking-glass. So nicely round her lady cheeks, She smoothed her bands of cloasy hair, And Innocently wondered if Her bonnet did not make lier fair; Then sternly chid her foolish heart for harboring such fancies there. So square she tied the satin strings. And set the bows beneath her chin, Then smiled to see how sweet sho looked, Then thought her vanity a sin. And she must put such thoughts away before the sermon should begin. But, 'sitting 'neath the preached word, Demurely in her father's pew. She thought about her bonnet still. Yes, all the parson's sermon through, About its pretty bows and buds, which better than the text sbh knew. Yet, sitting there wlili peaceful face. The reflex of her simple soul, Slie looked to be a very saint, And maybe, was one, on the whole, Only that her pretty bonnet...
