A Dangerous Practice. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 28 May 1915
A Dangerous Practice. A correspondent writes : "It has been brought under our notice that a very dangerous and reprehensible practice is becoming increasingly prevalent; and that is of carrying firearms and recklessly using them on motor cars whilst travellingat high speed-not only in the daytime, but equally; so after dark. The practice is indulged mostly on Wednesday afternoons, and along the roads with in a few miles'of town. The inference is that the guilty parties are the em ployees of the shops and other busi nesses out for 'high jinks.' Bearing in mind that there is a considerable subuiban population fringing Quean beyan, and that the shots so fired go whizzing by their homes and across their enclosed grounds, and at hours ,whep children are returning from school, the offence becomes aggrava ted; and it'is to be hoped that the hint here given will be respected. If not, there' is a drastic law which must be put in force to stop the prac tice."

THE BURMESE WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 28 May 1915
THE :BURMESE, WOMEN.. Inhis reoehtly published observations onl his- trdre!s i, India., ?Ghinaj and Japan Sir PFrederick Treves gives greht pr&ise to?the-Bhrmese,.w6men; whose dressing he found admirable in every respect. Burma he found to be a coun try of intelligent women, where there is "no such thing as fashion," and yet where woman's dress is "as nearly per fect as any female costti?e can be. Its chief claim to perfection," he says, "is that it is exquisitely, divinely simple. This may not appeal to the Western lady, who may hold that strict simplicity is only becoming to the workhouse in math. The dress of the Burmese wo man consists of a white linen jacket of the plainest possible type, without col lar, tie, or cuffs, and a skirt of un studied Bilk wrapped closel* tohnd the body dowh to the feet. This robe is marred by neither lounce nor ffill, and so far as the uninitiated can tell, has escaped even the touch of. needle or thread. Sandals to the feet and gold bangles...
THE LITTLE SOLDIER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 28 May 1915
THE LITTLE SOLDIER. In a dim old dusty attic, where spiders ckreep and crawl There's a pits of, children's' playthings, all heaped against the wall; There's a score of battered soldiers And a sword with broken point, And a torn and tattered cocked h.it. And a cannon out of joint. But where is the little soldier, with his eyes so winsome and blue, With his curly head all tousled in the heat of a grand review ? The shadows are softly falling, and dimly thro' the gloom Comes the tramp of soldiers marching, and canons' muffled boom; And a score of painted soldiers With their rifles held in place ',Iarch after a haught, leader With a smiling dimpled face. Ah I here is my little soldier, with his eyes so wistful and blue, And his ghostly little army, going off to a big review. In a lonely nameless graveyard, where many brave hearts lie Unheediig .the sound of battle, under a wintry sky; Along with his score of soldiers, With their riles laid aside, They've finished the game they started I...

WARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 28 May 1915
WARTS. A gobd method of treatment is to touch the surface of the whrt'twice daily with pure undiluted glacial acetic acid applied from the tip of a wooden match or toothpick. Do not use enough to run down on the sound skin; merely enough to dampen the skin; merely the entire surface and crevices of the warts. As soon as soreness is felt, suspend applications for a few days until the soreness disappears, then re sumeno appications. After a time the wart will disappear, leaving no sear. Do not cut the wart, and do not cauter. ise it with rapid caustic.
A WOMAN'S WALK. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 28 May 1915
A WOMAN'S WALK. The narrow skirt demanded by pre sent fashions calls for a careful walk. Long strides are impossible in such a skirt, and the danger is that a Chinese toddle will be encouraged. Well-shod feet, with heels that are hot run down, are essential with the modern skirt. A girl wiil do well to remember that fashionable clothes are never properly displayed unless the wearer's carriage is good. Let a girl pay attentioh to the way she walks and to her general carriage if she wishes her clothes to be a success. It took a severe illness to teach cii,, woman that she neither walked nor breathed correctly. When she had been off her feet for several months and had literally to learn to walk over again under the direction of a tiained nurse, she realised how badly she had walked and carried herself previously. In her convalescence, she was taught to hold up her chest as she walked, and to take deep breaths at all times;. She learned to walk with out dragging her feet and swing her a...

WAR COINCIDENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 28 May 1915
WAR COINCIDENCES. It is curious to note how the long arm of alphabetical coincidence is figuring generally and also in relation to prominent personalities in the, present war and their achievemerts. Our first naval loss was H.M.S. "Amphion." It was Leman who de fended Liege when Berlin affronted Brussels by .violating Belgitm. It' was Beatty who beat the Germans in :the Bight and sank the* would-be :baby. killers in the "Bluecher." It was Sturdee who sank Spee in the''"Scharn horst." It was Botha with Boers who beat Beyers. It is also notable how the letter K has figured in the life of Lord Kit chener. His past associates him with Khartoum, the Khedive, the: KhIalifa, and Kabul--his present: with' the Kaisor. ,
