WOMAN—LOVELY WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 March 1911
WOMAN— LOVELY WOMAN. The whisper of a beautiful wom an can be heard farther than the loudest call of duty. It is a woman's way. They al wavs love colour better than form. rhetoric better than logic, priest craft, better than philosophy, and flourishes better than figures. Nature makes fools; women make coxcombs. Women are apt to see chiefly the defects of a man of talent and the merits of a fool. Woman is more constant in hat red than in love. Woman is. an idol that man wor ships before, he throws it down. A beautiful woman is the para dise of the eyes, the hell of the soul, and the purgatory of the purse. The highest mark of esteem a woman can give a man is to ask his friendship, and the most signal proof of her indifference is to offer him hers. A woman is seldom tenderer to a man than immediately after she has refused him. ? Friendships of women aVe the cushions wherein they stick their pins.
HINTS ABOUT FITTING SHOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 March 1911
HINTS ABOUT FITTING SHOES. Few people understand that the shoe has a very powerful reflex in fluence on the body. Not a few suffer from lameness which they do not understand. They go to the doctor, who opines that they may have rheumatism, but the medicine they receive does them no good. Some become crioples without sus pecting the cause of their troubles - — namely, what is known as broken down arch. One case of this kind was a lady well known to the writer. She had always been strong and active, nev er complaining of her feet. Gradu ally, much to her disgust and sur prise, she found lameness coming on, with pains in her ankles and pains in her back. The pains in the ankle increased. Her physician did not seem to af ford any relief. Finally a friend asked the lady if she had ev,er Jieard of broken down arches, and advised her to buy a pair of the so called arch support shoes. The woman, without much faith in the prescription, determined to try it, and a pair of arch support shoes w...
BAD-TEMPERED WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 March 1911
BAD-TEMPERED WOMEN. It is said that a bad-tempered woman can cause more unpleasant ness for the rest of humanity than all the 'other disagreeable features one finds in life, and the unlucky possessor of an uncontrolled temper can easily drive to ruin or to other women the men whose misfortune it is to move in her orbit. Men are very mortal beings ; they are also very selfish, and they have a tremendous fondness for having their physical and mental comfort undisturbed. The average man prizes perman ent peace and content above the happiness of possessing a beautiful attractive creature for a wife, and he knows that a bad-tempered wo man and peace go not together. He admires a spirited woman, but he knows that a corresponding ly strong will goes along nyith strong character, and he expects her to exercise it. The assertion from a woman that she has a bad temper, and is 'proud of it, has kept more than one wor thy man from asking her to share his future as his wife. The woman who can co...
A PRETTY SETTEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 March 1911
A PRETTY SETTEE. With the aid of some small bar rels, a few yards of cretonne, and some fancy-headed nails, a very rir tistic piece of furniture may be de signed for the home. You wiii need three barrels, each about in inches high, two of them being used to form the seats themselves, while the third in used for two backs, To do this it must be cut in half, and fastened on to the upper ones, by two strips of wood being nailed both to the halves and the whole barrels. The two whole barrels are then joined together by a piece of wood nailed between them, and the backs are completed by three strips of wood being nailed between. The next thing to be considered is the covering and the cushioning of the settee. Two round cushions stuffed with rags and covered with cretonne will be needed for the seats, and two small oblong ones shniiiH alin h«. attached, nftpr the barrels have been covered to the back. The back should be cover ed first with cretonne, fastened in pleats by tiny brass-headed...
A HAT HINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 March 1911
-? A HAT HINT. It is not always an easy matter to.light on a felt hat in the exact colour desired — or if we find the colour correct the shape, possibly, is not to our liking. A hint worth following: in cases of the sort is to buy a hat shape in buckram and a yard, or whatever quantity we re quire, of beaver-cloth in the colour on which we have set our heart, and with this cover the hat shape. It is advisable to take the shape of the brim in paper before cutting the material, so as to ensure against waste. If the brim is straight or turned down the mater ial can be cut to shape without having a seam. If, however, ?? a seam is necessary in order to save material, or for other reasons, let it be made as neatly as possible, so that is scarcely shows, and, of course, place it at the back of the hat.

A PLEA FOR THE CLOTHES BRUSH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 March 1911
A PLEA FOR THE CLOTHES BRUSH. A distinctly useful article is the clothes brush, yet few girlB realise the important part it plays in the life and well-being of their garments. For annearance sake, the clothes brush is occasionally patronised, but it is not used half enough. A daily brushing of every garment in wear removes all dust, keeps the nap of the material nice, and also tends to preserve the colour. A clothes brush should be neither too hard, nor yet too soft, and- it should also be kept regularly washed. The cat in gloves catches no mice. Good books are the best friends many of us possess. They never weary and never betray as.

For Young Folks. JIM'S NEW PHASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 March 1911
for Young Folks. '.'JIM'S' NEW PHASE. Mrs. Dillon was one of those in crufgcnt mothers who are so lax about administering deserved pun - ishment that their very kindness be comes an evil. She had studied books on child-rearing, and could lecture for hours on the stages of growth through which a boy pass es between childhood and man hood. So every questionable act that her son Jim did she attributed to some natural 'phase through which' he was passing, and smiled, and allowed it to go unrebuked. She would send him on an urgent errand, and when he came back only in time for supper, bearing signs of a long swim in the river, she would sigh at his unfaithfulness, but say: 'Oh, he'll grow out of it in a few years. He's just passing through a phase.' When she sent him to dig a pail of potatoes, and He stayed long enough to clean, the whole field, Athen brought in barely enough pp ?MMHtOTTdinner, — jfc*«wouJd gently : ' inquire11 if ; he ? was tired, and reward him with cake, and promise h...
AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A GUINEA PIG. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 March 1911
AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A GUINEA PIG. Amy A. Edwards is the author of this pretty story in 'Little Folks': I am a little white guinea-pig, with a broad band of brown round my waist and two little brown spots on my face. I am called 'Little Man,' and I am very tame. The first thing I remember is a large coop wired all round, where I lived with my mother, and I ran round and round, trying my best to get out. Then when my mother had driven me into a corner to prevent me from slipping through a hole in the wire, a big animal (I thought it was, but mother said it was a girl) came and opened a door to give us some fresh food. When she saw mt-, 'Oh, my!' she cried; 'what a dear little euinea-pig!' and she took m* out and fondled me. But I didn't like it at all, and I squeaked until she put me back. When she had gone mother called me and bade me look through the bars at the world outside. How nice it looked to me, such green grass and bushes! I longed to get out and run about, but the wires bad no...
Random Readings. EXCUSABLE CONFUSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 March 1911
Random Readings. EXCUSABLE CONFUSION. One who construes strictly the words which are found in ancient story and song may not infrequently r^ad into the text a meaning ex actly .opposite to that which the wnter attempted to convey. A little study of some of these words almost convinces one, says a student of words, that black may be white, and vice versa. It is related that in the panic of 1857 a Frenchman in New York said he feared he should lose all his 'propriety.' We smile at this, and yet we learn that 'pro- priety' and 'property' have exactly the same French derivation. We hear one speak of an 'anecdote' and know that a short, diverting Btory is referred to. Etymologically it means something as yet' unpub- lished. To prevent, which is now to hinder, meant in its Latin origi nal to anticipate. a. gin was anciently a young person of either sex. Paradise, in Oriental tongues, meant only a royal _ ark. A knave , was once merely, a lad, and a villain only a peasant. 'To be silly was...

A WONDERFUL CAVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 21 March 1911
A WONDERFUL CAVE. What is described as the largest stalactite cave in Europe was recent- ly discovered near Schoenbergalm, in the Dachstein mountains, Upper ? AlSfttt, wr&° ififmTfttfu-s 'filar1 p&s- sages of varying length. In travers- ing the main tunnel the exploring party had to cross by rope ladders an ice crevasse seventy-five feet deep and more than one hundred feet wide. The cave is divided into two levels. In the upper were found two immense ice-halls containing precipi- tous subterranean glaciers some three hundred feet long. Phenomenal ice formations were also found. In the lower level was a series of halls, the largest more than six hundred feet long and one hundred feet high. Traces of subterranean watercourses in the form of sand and rubble were discovered in the main tunnels. There were also some beautiful flower-shaped stalactites. Among the palaeontological discoveries made were petrified Brachiopoda and re- &nbsp; mains of cave bears. &a...
Facts & Fancies. [?] Trees. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
Facts & Fancies. (itrnttkr-'td Trees. In Central Africa the gigantic baobab tree, whose trunk sometimes attains a diameter of 40ft., often serves as a natural cistern, retain ing rain-water in large quantities in a cavity formed at the top of the broad trunk. Taking the hint thus afforded by nature, the Arabs arti ficially hollow out the large trunks of large baobabs, and fill them with I water during -the prevalence of rains, as a provision against the dry sea son. These cisterns are in many cases 20ft. in height, and 8ft or 10ft in diameter. The water is used both for drinking and for irrigating melon patches. Without Drink for Months. Other creatures than the camel are able forextended periods to go without drinking. Sheep in the north-western deserts of America go from forty to sixty days in winter without drink, grazing on the green, succulent vegetation of that season.! Peccaries in the desert of Sonora live in dry little hills, where there is no natural..wateE-.i«t_l-...
THE SITTING HEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
THE SITTING HEN„ The first essential in sitting a hen Is to be sure she wants to sit. Let her sit on a china egg for £ couple of days. If she keeps to the nest and appears faithful^ then it is safe to prepare the nest and give her the eggs for hatching.' . 'As far as pos sible,' the eggs selected should be of even size and free . from any de fects. When preparing for the sit ting hens, special attention should be e-iven to the condition of the nest. Moist condition; good circu lation of air, and cleanliness are the great things tojiim at. Before sit ting your hens they should be well dusted with insect powder in order to kill any insects. Also allow them daily access to ashes or some kind of dust bath, which will be the means of keeping down thei lice, which are in every way detrimen tal to the well-being of the chic kens. Having proceeded thus far, the next thing is -to sit your, hen, which,' by the way, should be al ways done in the evening, as she will be found : to settle down m...
AN EFFECTIVE LOUSE-KILLER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 28 March 1911
AN EFFECTIVE LOUSE KILLER. One of the surest and safest ways of exterminating lice is by the use of air-slacked lime. It is especial ly effective where the trouble is with the young chicks. The lime should be thoroughly dry, and placed in the coops. As a disinfectant it has no equal, and after the chicks have once become accustomed to the use of it they will dust themselves fre quently during the day. If the chicks are too vounff to be allowed in a coop with so heavy a coating of lime-dust, it would be better to apply it to the mother-hen, dusting her thoroughly, and then place some material, such as hay, seeds, and chaff, or some clippings cut by the lawn mower, and well dried, under them for their night's bedding. After a few such applications to the mother hen, the chicks will be unmolested by lice and mites. Chickens that are free from lice will invariably grow into strong and healthy, vigorous stock.
