She met him on the doorstep, and took his umbrella and his hat from him, hut as he followed her into the dining-room he observed that there was some thing amiss. "Harold," she said, "how can I. break the news to you?" "I hope," he replied, with visions of his account with the stores, "the ser vant has not been breaking anything more expensive than news." "No,, no," she replied. "She has not broken anything that matters—■ only the cut-glass salad bowl, three tumblers, and a water-bottle. What I have to tell you is that there are no sweets for dinner.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 July 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. If flowers have come 'by post they will freshen up wonderfully if their stems are placed in Lot water for a little while before arranging them in vases. Before eating an orange, soak it in hot water for half an hour. The skin will loosen and come off easily, and the orange will be as sweet as if freshly picked. To remove labels from bottles, wet the label with water and hold it over a flame for a second or two. The steam quickly penetrates the label and softens the gum or paste. To clean sultanas quickly, place the fruit in a floured cloth. Tie the ends of the cloth and shake well for five minutes. The stalks will fall off and the fruit will be clean for using. If, when making boiled starch, a piece of soap is left in, it will be found during the ironing process that not only will the iron slip along easily, but a beautiful glossy effect will be produced. Boiled potatoes make an excellent substitute for soap when the hands have become blackened by contact with pots...

IT HAPPENED IN THE DICTIONARY. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 July 1914
it' happened in the *' dictionary. A zouave with a zebra, On a zero night in June, Wooed a Zulu on a zebu, 'Neath a zingaroguish moon; In his zeal he strummed a zither, Called as witness Mister Zeus, As he told his Zulu Lulu That he loved her like the deuce. "You're a zany," she retorted, "For your name begins with Z, There's another zone for lovers, That looks very good to me"; Then the zebu zig-zagged onward, Left the Zouave in a. daze, While . the fickle Zulu maiden Sought a husband in the A's. A trained ostrich recently discon certed its exhibitor at a country show by continually endeavoring to break away from all restraint and to climb over the footlights into the orchestra.

BARE-LIMBED GIRLS. CHICAGO SOCIETY SHOCKED. [Newspaper Article] — Myrtleford Mail and Whorouly Witness — 9 July 1914
BARE-LIMBED GIRLS. CHICAGO SOCIETY SHOCKED. The revels "of "the Daphne " Greek pageant, in which many bare-limbed, airily-clad girls and several-male dan cers, in similar classic freedom of garb, took part, formed a much-dis cussed topic of conversation among members of the General Federation of Women's Clubs. The pageant took place at an Art institute, and no men witnessed it except those who partici pated. All the members of the Federation agreed as to the artistic beauty of the spectacle, but there was a con siderable variance of opinion- as. to the propriety of the proceedings and the lack of drapery which character ised it. " One delegate to the Federation de clared that the costumes worn by the girls in the pageant were modest in comparison with some of the ex treme fashionable effects worn by cer tain delegates at a dance which re presented the pursuit of Daphne by Apollo.
