The Sportsman's Ducks. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 13 May 1914

Ths Sportsman's Ducks. Mrs. S., a lady resident In Scotland, while out driving one morning, over took a gentleman friend on his way to enjoy a clay's duck-shooting. As she passed, he called out, "I'll send you a brace of ducks to-night," and went on his way. But the ducks were wild indeed that day, or Mr. B. was a bad shot, for at night he returned home with only two snipe for his bag. Remembering his promise to Mrs. S., and not wishing that she should know how unsuccess ful he had been, he called his "boy," and told him to go to the market, buy a pair of ducks, and leave them at the house of Mrs. S., with his compliments. Two weeks afterwards he received an invitation to lunch there, and be fore he left his hostess took occasion to thank him for his present. "They are lovely ducks. Won't you come and see them?" said she. "See them!" said the astonished Mr. B. "Ha-ren't you used them yet? I fear they have been hanging too long." "Oh, no," she replied. "Come and see."

CARMAUT. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 13 May 1914

CARMAUT. (From our own Correspondent.) Rather a serious situation has arisen with the graziers round this district, it is reported, owing to the absence of rain, and the severe frosty nights which have been ex perienced of late have had a very bad effect on the burnt ground. The young grass that came splen didly after the rain is now rapidly going'away. Not having old grass to shelter it reports are to hand of stock dying in numbers. It may be good policy burning off large areas of the run, but as things have turned out this season, it has not turned out trumps. Now owners have to keep stock going by using large quantities of hay and oats. All to no purpose some have to resort to travelling the! roads. A good downpour of rain is needed before it gets too late or else one may not know to what ex tent the losses will be-. The ball which is to take place on Thursday night promises to be. a great affair as numerous patrons are coming from far and near. Elaborate preparations are made an...

HINTS ON HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 13 May 1914

HINTS ON HABITS. ' Get out of the habit of being poor. Poverty is no crime, but it is infernal ly bad taste. Besides, lots of people have been cut out of wills simply and solely for being poor. Being poor is an extremely hard habit to break yourself of, unless you begin very early in life. If you have been poor for fifty or sixty years, you are practically incurable. Marriages are made in Heaven, ""hat's why all the brightest and best j:ien are waiting. They don't want to throw themselves away on this side uf Jordan. . Acquire perfect manners. The use of maimers is to enable you to do ex actly what you want without giving offence. The worst of all faults is to have none. Beauty is only skin deep. And the coart is very far from the skin. If, by any chance, you want to be really pood, get out of 'the habit of being beautiful. Try to gain a reputation greater than you deserve, and then teach your self to deserve it. If you can do this, you won't need any further help from me. Don't get...

THE MECHANICAL AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 13 May 1914

THE MECHANICAL AGE. Were we required to characterise this age of ours by any simple epithet •we should be tenipteu to call it, not : an Heroical, Devotional, Philosophical or Moral Age, but, above all others the Mechanical Age. It is the Age of Machinery, in every outward and uni versal sense of that word: the age which, with its whole individual might, forwards, teaches, and practises the great art of adapting means 10 ends Nothing is now done directly, or by hand; all is by rule and calculated con trivance. For the simplest operation, some helps and accompaniments, some cunning, abbreviating process is in readiness. Our old modes of execu tion are all discredited, and thrown aside. On every hand, the living arti san is driven from his workshop to make room for a speedier, inauimate one.

THE NERVOUSNESS OF . STAGE LIFE. ' ______ ' Professional Women and Need of Sound K'erves. A MEMBER OF SEVERAL OPERA COMPANIES' OPINION, •w.- . Nervousness is more or less Inher-. 6nt to the feminine constitution, and especially is it increased by profes sional public duties. Stage life, ac cording to the opinion of leading ac tresses, is a most trying one. There is always a great nerve tension, and never for a single moment, when on the stage, is it .relaxed. But that it can be easily -^relieved and the con stitution benefited permanently by1 the splendid medicine testified - to here is proved by this testimony, and thousands of others, received from all parts of Australia.

TO MOTHERS OF BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 13 May 1914

" TO MOTHERS OF BOYS, Boys demand especial care at the mother's hands. They should be trained to show consideration to oth ers, and general, good breeding. A lad who is awkward, grumpy ana 111 at ease in the presence of visitors is a painful sight, especially when— as frequently happens—his sisters point a contrast by ease and refine ment of manner and a knowledge oi etiquette. Let your boys wait on you. Do not be their humble slave. Nor should they be allowed to tyrannise over their sisters. That is the way to make them selfish, arrogant and generally insufferable.

WOMEN AND WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 13 May 1914

WOMEN AND WORK Ali women who have not home dn lies to keep them occupied ought tc have some outside interests. . The women who are sweet-tempered and charming and kindly disposed to wards humanity are the busy women —those tvho work for their living or for charity or are occupied with the best duties of all—motherhood. An energetic, enthusiastic, ambitious business ^voman with a calling, no matter how humble it Is, has not the time for the despicable pettiness that goes to make life a burden to all con cerned. The woman who works is inevitably a woman who is broad in her views. Her opinions are not riveted to any one spot. Her point of view is mov able. Her experience in the business mart gives her sympathy for other wo men workers. She has learned to ac cept every friend, new and old, at an honest valuation. She learns to enjoy the society of people who have made something out of life.
