NURSES AS WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 22 July 1914
NURSES AS WIVES. There is no doubt that a nurse ought Co make the very best of wives: having an illterest and an income of her own she is not likely to marry except under the jn:luence of strong affection. All the experience and training of hospital life go to develop all that is best in a good woman. Grant this, and grant that the "happy homs of England" are the main element of her power and her greatness, and it seems a pity to make matrimony an obnoxious subje-?t to the unfortunate probationer. It is doubtless very annoying to the authorities when they have trained a goodl nurse, and she is fulfilling excel lently hIer position, that she should go and throw thern over hor pnme one nmere man. hut with d:e length of notice the nurse hIrs time to reflect and the committee has time to fill her place; it is not dificult with so many wvomen eager for work to keep the gaps filled, and thie nation profits when the w-ell rained woman marries.

MORAL REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 22 July 1914
MORAL REFLECTIONS. In order to raise me, it is necessary to be above them. A little word we cannot withdraw is often life's greatest thorn. To gain a goo dreputation. endleavor to be what you desire to appear. The way to avoid evil is not by maiming our passions, but by compel ling them to yield their vigor to our moral nature. We should make it our chief care neither to ridicule, nor to deplore, nor to execrate, hot to understand the ac tions of mankind. A mistake made on one's own some times dles more for one than a suc cess one owes to somebody else. Mvs's lives are as thoroughiy blend ed witlh each other as the air they breathe; evil spreads as necessarily as, disease. To sin against knowledge is a much greater crime than an ignorant tres pass; as the crime which is capable of no excuse is more heinous than the fault which admits of a tolerable plea. A roan has no more right to hoard knowledge and experienciJ than he has to hoard his gold. One can no more live to himself' and gr...

But when we got oult to sea, ant he began to practise the Ilholy rite, while I looked on admirably, a change, subtle but distinctive, marked his bearing. When he 'shot tile sun' at noon the glow of achievement wrappedl him in lambent flanme. IHe became filledl with incom mnunicable information. My mild suggestion that it was about time I began to learn met with no hearty response and no otfer on his part to help me. "The act of filing where hie was on the face of the waters became a rate, and hlie felt himself a superior be ing to thle rest of us, who knew not this rite, andl were dep...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 22 July 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. To remove rust from a knife, plunge the blade into an onion and leave it for an hour. Then polis'i in the usual way. Before using a new comb .wash It in soapy water, and when dry rub with a little olive oil. It will then last twice as long. To remove bloodstains, soak the article in cold water to which am monia has been added; wash.In warm water with naptha soap. Flowers keep better.in damp sand than in water. Flowers for the table may be more gracefully arranged in a jar of wet sand than in a foundation of moss. Always sandpaper the soles of baby's new shoes before they have been worn. This keeps her from slIp ping on the bare or polished floors, -and prevents many a bad fall which could easily result in a sprain or a broken bone. Curtains will hang straight and look much nicer if a small lead weight Is sewn in each end of the lower hem. In thin curtains the weight will pre vent them blowing about, and they will hang, as they should, followfng the line of woodwork...

The Confession. The words were quIletly tittered, yet if a bombshell had fallen into the room the eltfect could not have been more electrical on Eric G:talbralth. H-s face became the color of pap-r, and the cigarette he had be-n lighting fell from his nerveeis lingers. "Oh, heavens!" he: groaned. "what do you know about Nellie Char!ton? You have told Elstl--oh, you-" "Be quiet, Eric. Elsie will never know from me." "But what do you know? Some friend-" "Do not try to hide it I know everything, Eric," and In a quiet voice Angus told his brother of the mysterl ous letter. "Show me the letter, old man," said Eric, brightening, "perhaps it's a hoax." But he trembled in spite of his attempts to pass it ol lightly. "The letter," said Angus, "is burn 'ed - "Burned!" and thie boy's eyes flash ed fire. "Is t...

Royal Walking-sticks. The recent ainouncement that Andrew Jackson's heavy hickory stick has lbeen iresented to Presi dent W~oodlrow Wilson reminds one that King Gleor'ge inherited the "2,)000 ;walking-sticks which belonged to his father, King Edward.

PART OF THE BUSINESS. The members of the Independent Order of Enthusiastic Good Fellows were operating on Mr. Timberwheel a few weeks ago, putting him through the operations supposel to be neces sary to convert the ordinary citizen into an Enthusiastic Good Fellow. They were almost through with the initiation when some kind of an ex Dliosion at the store over which the hall was situated blew the building into the middle of the street, and in terfered with the ceremonies. Ready hands set to work and ex tricated the people from the debris. Fortunately no one was very much hurt, but after a census had been taken Mr. Timberwheel was found to be missing. A search was instituted, and before long he was found In an adJoining yard, where the force of the explosion had landed him. He sat in a lodge-room chair, and his eyes were still blindfolded. "Why on earth didn't you take that thing off your eyes and get out of the chair when the explosion occurred?" asked one of the Enthusiastic Good Fe...
QUESTION OF PROFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Berwick Shire News and Pakenham and Cranbourne Gazette — 22 July 1914
QUESTION OF PROFIT. "One can often do more by diplom acy than by brandishing a club," said a man In the smokeroom of a Mid land Counties club recently. "Some years ago my next door neighbors on either side took the vain notion into their heads that keeping fowls was as profltable as running a distillery. They bought buff Orplng tons and Rhode Island reds at famine prices, and awaited results with an ear-to-ear smile of optimism. "Their fences were not exactly hen proof, and my garden suffered. One morning my begonia bed was wreck ed, the next my carnations were ruin ed; but, though naturally cross, I re frained from challenging the poultry farmers-to a couple of rounds in the woodshed. " 'Here's a Joke.' I said to Wiggs, at No. 21, 'Clumpkins at No. 25 has start ed keeping fowls, and doesn't keep his fence in repair. The blessed things3 get through, and every morning I find about half a dozen new laid eggs de posited in an old top hat In my out house.' And I brought out for his in s...

Hie dived almost vertically, and after a headlong de scent levelled ollt once more, but his relief was only momentary. The other pilot must have performed exactly the sante manoeuvre. for no sooner was he speeding along again on a level keel than he saw the monoplane once again looming out of the mist, heading straight towards himn. Terror-struck, the pilot dived again, emerged below the clouds, and forthwith landed. Not until then did the explanation strike hire.
