THE IDEAL NATION. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 29 August 1914

THE IDEAL NATION. National degeneration is shown by ' the diseased cult of poverty and the glorification of ill-health. The true ideal is that of a nation of .strong brave, and intelligent men; beautiful and happy women, with children who know no care. The ideal nation is one without hospitals, infirmaries, convalescent, homes, dispensaries. This ideal was apparently obtained for at least four hundred years in the history of ancient Greece. For that period, medical science languished be cause professional healers could not flourish .in a community where the standard of health was so high that physical debility and bodily defects were regarded as shameful. There is no mystery about the healthiness of Greek life. In essentials. British hygiene, as taught by its best expon ents, _is identical with the health cul ture of the Violet Crowned City. We count the old Greek as pagan; but he was clean, he lived frugally, exercised himself for fitness in national service, and obeyed in substanc...

Too Familiar. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 29 August 1914

Toe Familiar. While at the Sandwich Islands I had an amusing experience with my Hawaiian servant. Now, these ser vants insist on calling you by your first name. Ours was always saying to my husband, "Yes, John," and to me, "Very well, Mary," etc., etc. So when we got a new cook, I told my husband to avoid calling me "Mary," as then, not knowing my name, he would have to say "missus" to me: So John always called me "sweetheart" or "dearie," never "Mary," but the watchful fellow gave me no title at all. One day we had some officers to din. ner, and, while awaiting the repast, J told them of the ruse I had adopted, and added, "By this servant, at least you won't hear me called Mary." Just then the new cook entered the room. He bowed, and said to me: "Sweetheart, dinner ..is served." "What?" I stammered, aghast at his familiarity. "Dinner is served, dearie," answered the new cook.

So What's the Use? "Yes, I went fishing yesterday," be gan the man who tries to be original. "Luck? Well, about the" worst I could have. I caught two fish. One _ waa . three and a-half indhes long and the other two inches." But was he believed? Not much. After he had passed on Bomeone com mented: "Bet he didn't even get a bite."
