DEPARTURE OF A TROOP-SHIP [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 18 May 1915
DEPARTURE OF A TROOP-SHIP At six o'clock in the morning &nbsp; my little daughter and myself ar rived at the Port Melbourne Town pier. It was a cold, raw, foggy morning, and was scarcely day light at that hour. We proved to be the advance guard of thousands upon thousands of people who as sembled there later in the day. We knew the troops were coming, but did not know the exact time, so we got there early. Well, at about eight o'clock, the advance gaurd of the 21st battalion ar rived (the other advance guards came in on Friday.) The crowds commenced to gather, and every train that arrived at the station brought full loads of passengers came in previously. The crowds At ten o'clock the first troop-train arrived. It was taken down on to the railway pier and unloaded. Two troopers, on magnificent white horses, tried to keep a way clear. They succeeded for awhile and the soldiers came on four abreast, but when anyone in the waiting crowd caught sight of their own particular sold...
A SWEET VOICE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
A SWEET VOICE. There 1b no power ot love so hard to get and keep as a kind voice. A bind hand Is deaf and dumb. It may bo rough In flesh and blood, yet do the work of a soft heart, and do It with a soft touch. But there Is no one thing which love so much needs as a sweet voice to tell what it means and feels, and it Is hard to get and keep It in thb right tone. One must start In youth and he on the watch night and day, at work, at play, to get and keep a voice that shall speak at all times the thought of n kind heart. But this is the time when ft oharp voice is most apt to be got. You often hear boys and girls say words at play with a quick, Bharp tone, as if it were the snap of a whip. When one of them gets vexed you will hear a voice that sounds as if it werr made up of a snarl, a whine, and a bark. Such a voice often speaks worse than the heart feels. It shows more Ill-will in the tone than in the words. It Is often in mirth that one gets a voice or tone tliat is sharp and sticks...
WOMAN'S WORLD. THE WIFE'S DAY OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
WOMAN'S WORLD. THE WIFE'S DAY OFF. "No one seems to have thought that wives should have a day oft-a whole day to herself," saiil a married man of many years', standing recently. "It dawned upon me after I had been mar ried twelve years that everyone in my household had a day oft except ray wife. I always hau Sundays, the chil dren had Saturdays and Sundays free from school, and the servants had a'hursdays. / One day it came into my mind that in an otherwise justly man aged household my wife did not have a whole day, or a part of a day, which she could call her very own. So I sat down and talked it all over with her, and after a good deal of argument on her part, for she is a much-domestica ted woman, we decided that once erery .week the family should fish for Itself while my wife went shopping or visit ing, or anything she wanted to do, without bothering her head about the dinner or the children at home. The plan works like a charm. We have lots of fun, too, trying to show her how m...
THE BOY AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
THE BOY AT HOME. Tne boy"3 standing in some home&m deplorable. Much has been said about mother and daughter, but T*rj3 Uitle about mother and son. Perhaps nothing is done at the iomei towards entertain.ng him; he is look ed upon as a separate being, ivcc as a. meniDer o£ the family. Little pains are> taken to make attractions for him. H&t is very seldom consulted about thei family transactions, the supposition; being that he does notsare. That igi a great mistake. He will care if you. show him how to cars. Boys can thinlc: and feel the same as other peopie. When a boy comes home do every thing to make it comfortable for him. Do not keep reminding him of com ing into the house with his sho23 dirty,, overlook the dirt occasionally, and pay more attention to the boy, and he will', in time himself look after his.ghoes. Take an interest in all hisf affairs,, whether thfn- bp play, school, or work,. Tail: over lu'iii him the day's happen-, ings, his .'Xporiences, the ne...
WOMEN SHOULD SLEEP MORE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
WOMEN SHOULD SLEEP MORE. A physician, who is a speicalist in nervous diseases, says that women should sleep at least nine hours at night and one in the daytime. A wo man will plead that she has not time to lie down for a few minutes in the daytime; and ?he will infringe upon the hours of night, which should be given to sound, healthy, needed sleep, ;n order to finish some piece of work which could as well be completed on the morrow. She will rush and hurry all day long, and then when the household is hushed in slumber night, she will sit to read the daily paper, thinking she will not have U> pay tox the time she is stealing from, ll^e health-giving sleep that comes be Sure midnight. Then there has to bf considered the woman vfho cannot. sleep. She should rigorously take, enough physical exercise each day to induo" healthful fatigue. She should, eat simply, easily digested food,, avoiding tea and coffee later than her breakfast hour. A tepid bath taken, just before retiring has a ...
"IN A MINUTE." [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
" IN A MINUTE." N»w, Then your little daughter t*y» " In a minute, mother," you reprove her, for children must obey their par ems. When you say this to her you have >o idea that you deserve reoroof, hav» you? And yet, in most cases, you could perfectly well give her the little help she asks, or take up the rent in her doll's frock, or show her how to finish-off her crochetting, not in a minute, but immediately, if only you would. Most kind things gaiu im mensely- by being done at once. So not say " in a minute " to little Mary, unless you cannot possibly oblige har without the delay. A trifle is so much more to a child than it can be to a grown person thik the latter should be careful how she ever causes :he little heart- disappoint ment or regret.
A USEFUL RECEPTACLE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
A USEFUL RECEPTACLE. A most useful little receptacle ea» be fashioned out of a small tea chest, or box of similar size, and if placed in a drawing or dining-room answers two purposes. One, a3 a dainty stool for Fitting upon, the other as a work-bos or magazine holder. Scrub and thor oughly dry, and unholster in-exactly the same way as the ottoman, the only difference being that, instead of pad' ding the lid, it should be covered in & like manner to the sides, and then a soft, full cushion should be made the size- oI til" Hd. placed on and attached to the lid only by the corners. 'The corners look more finished if three small pom-poms to correspond to the coverings, are stitched to each of them. This done, nothing could look nic»r, besides being quite a novelty.
APPRECIATED THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
APPRECIATED THERE. "The Chinaman'," said one who ?lows him, "is the only man on earth - !u> Knows exactly how to make the /.:;! use of a motiicr-in-law.

"The Chinaman, as , someone has said, is a 'monster of economy,' and was one of (he first to realise how much more cheaply a number of peo ple can live when residing together than when living separately, and how greatly expenses can be reduced by a woman whose years have given her wisdom and experience."
THE WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
THE WIFE. A delicate attention to the minute wants and wishes of a wife tends, per haps more than anything else, to the promotion of domestic happiness. It requires no sacrifices, occupies but' a small de^-roe of attention, yet is the fer tile source of bliss, since il convinces the object of your regard that, with duties of a husband, you have united the mora punctilious behaviour oi a lover. These trivial tokens of a re gard ccrtainly make much way in the affections of a woman of sense and dis cernment, who looks not to the value of the gifts she receives, but perceives in their frequency a continued evidence of the existence and ardour of that Jove on which the super-structure of her happiness has been erected. To pre serve unimpaired the affections of het associate, to convince him that in his judgment of her character, formed antecedently to marriage, he was nei ther blinded by partiality nor deluded by artifice, will be the study of every woman who consults her own happi ness ...

WOMAN'S WORLD. WOMEN AND MELANCHOLIA. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
WOMAN'S WORLD. WOMEN AND MELANCHOLIA!, "Why do BO many women have i&uehona?" asked a physician who k&d & large practice among depressed and nervous women. " Because they don'1 care to avoid it. Because they abso. Iutoly disregard the rules of mental and physical well-being. Becausa they vould rather eat what they liko and suffer indigestion and the bluea afterward than eat what is good foi them. Because they would rather sit about on soft cushions than take a tramp of six miles through the open air. Because they haven t enough to occupy thoir niinas and their hands." This observer of women says, further, nat it is never the women who have causi to ieel blue who indulge in blues; and that, the women with shiftless hua lianas, sick babies, and all the usual icoumpaniments of noverty never be -ame so depressed that they have to ne treated for it. They are too busy; hut it is the woman with an adoring (amilv. social position, and a comfort able income, who does n...
DREAMS ARE CAPRICIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915
DREAMS ARE CAPRICIOUS. A gentleman, who has made a (tad; i ot dreams, expressed the conviction that, as a rule, they have HtUe or no connection with the character and habits ot the dreamer. He instanced the case of a philan thropist of exemplary life, who In his dreams copstantly finds himself com mit:ing the most atrocious crimes and glorying in them. In another case, a military man, famous for his heroic courage, suffers terrors unspeakable in dreams in which he is engaged in battle. The authority cites, also, the generally peaceful and pleasant slum bers enjoyed by criminals, sven. when in the shadow ot the gallows. Menial qualities, too, have little or 10 cffoct on the nature of a dream. A scientist or a philosopher may. It is rue, dream of things with which the uneducated may have no acquaintance, ;>ut his dreams will not be one whit more rational or coherent than those it the veriest Ignoramus. I -

Unexpected Opposition. "Now, Tommy, my boy, hurry up and get ready for school, or you'll be late." "I ain't goln' to day, mother." "Not going? And why not?" "Because I've struck." "Struck! What do you mean by rhat?" "Why. didn't father read In the pa pers last night about persons striking, and said that It was right for them that *re oppressed to strike?" "And 1 hope you don't call younell oppressed, do you?" "Of course I am. If a fellow doesn't rant to go to school, and his mother makes him go, isn't he oppressed?" "So you have struck, have you? Well. I'll see if I can strike, too." And just as soon as Tommy saw his mother reaching for the strap, his first strike came to an end, for he darted out of the house, and was at school in double-quick time. "Pleaso assist me," snld a seedy looking man to a gentleninu whom he knew slightly.
