WEAR BECOMING COLORS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 6 August 1914
WEAR BECOMING COLONS. It Is not every woman who under stands the art and necessity of har monisin:; colors. She is apt to be .swayed too much by the decrees of fashion when selecting shades for a new hat or dress, and the result, more often than not, is .ureat contrasts, which accentuate instead of hide de fects of the face and figure. The woman who desires to loo!: her best must, select only those colors which will be helpful to he:-. Women differ so much in l'onn a;.d coloring that, each m'.tst. be a law unto her self. There is the fair and florid woman, the thin and sallow woman. Another type is neither stout nor thin, per haps, but colorless and faded, a strik ing contrast to the highly-colored dark woman, whose pink cheeks have changed to a dull red. Taking the fair and florid, a type generally inclined toward obesity, she may be said to be fairly safe if she will adopt dark colors or shades below the bust-line, and select those near her face with a view to becomlngness.

Her Last Drive. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 6 August 1914
Her Last Drive. A contretemps looked like arising at a funeral the other day in a rural district. It was the wife of an elder ly farmer who had died, and just as the cortege was about to leave the house for the church, both mourners and the undertaker's men were, to say the least, startled by seeing the widower-a sturdy type of a farmer- . mount the box-seat of the hearse, and gather up the relns. His friends went and told him to eomo down and take his seat in one of the mourning-coaches. ' "No, no," replied the lic!&lt;> old fel low; and jerking his thumb in the di rection of the cofflu, added: "She never would let anyone drive her but im\ and this is the last time she will have the chance." And drive he did, all entreatie? and .emonstrances being in vain. Gentleman (in railway train): How (lid this accidcnt happen? GmuTi: Someone pulled the cord and stopped the train, and the boat ex press ran into us. It will take five hours to clear the line for us to go ahead. Gentle...
COUGH GENTLY. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 6 August 1914
COUGH GENTLY. Few people know how to cough pro perly. It never occurs :o the ordin ary individual that there is a right way and a wrong way of doing it. Yet it is a matter of no small import ance. if every sigh means a drop of blood out of the heart, as people say, every cough means some greater or less proportion of time knocked off one's life. Most people cough as loud ly and forcibly as they can. But it is lather costly noise, for the single reason that ii tears and inflames the lungs. The lungs consist of an extra ordinary delicate sponge-like tissue, which sometimes gets inflamed and choked with phlegm. When we try to get rid of this substance we cough. But obviously, if we remove it vio lently, wc must necessarily injure the delicate lung tissue. Therefore train yourself to cough as gently as pos sible.
