LIFE'S AIMS AND REWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914
LIFE'S AIMS AND REWARDS. Riches, whatever their charm and their value, are not a panacea for the evils of life. . . . Happiness depends on work, health, character, disposi tion, training, and a great many other things besides income, and so far as happiness is concerned, enough money, or somewhat less than enough, puts us in just about as good a case to achieve it as though we were rich. To live our lives, to get out what is in us, to do our share of the world's worlc and live brotherly with our fel lows—that is what we are here for. If riches are a" incident of that course of life, they are a good inci dent. If the chase after them lures us away from the fulfilment of our pri mary obligations to our Maker, our neighbor, and ourselves, we are cer tainly losers by it, losers not less if, succeeding, we lose the Christmas out of our year, the Christmas spirit out of our lives.
THE TRAVELLER. A reply to Rudyard Kipling's "He Travels Fastest Who Travels Alone." [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 30 May 1914
THE TRAVELLER. A reply to Rudyard Kipling's "Ho Travels Fastest Who Travels Alone." Who travels alone with his eye on the heights. Though he laughs in the daytime, oft weeps through the nights For courage goes down with the set of the sun, When the toil of the journey is all borne by one. lie speeds but to grief, though full gaily he ride, Who travels alone without Love by his side. Who travels alone, without lover or friend, But hurries from nothing, to nought at the end; Though great be his winnings, and high ibe his goal, He is bankrupt in wisdom', and beg gared in soul. Life's one gift of value to liim is de nied Who travels alone without Love at his side. It is easy enough in this world to make haste If we live for that purpose; but thinlc of the waste! For liTe is a poem to leisurely read, And the joy of a journey lies not in its speed. Oh! vain his achievement, and petty his pride, Who travels alone without Love at his side.

Blaming Mother. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914
Blaming Mother. "My mother made me what I am," said the political speaker as he proud ly threw out his chest. "Well," said a small man at the rear of the hall, "she must have put in some of her time at other things." As soon as a woman knows what she wants, she generally gets it. It's when she does not know what she wants that she baffles the philoso pher. Bear your troubles manfully. Every one endured bravely strengthens your character; c/ery one shirked weakens it." "To make the wheels of the day's work run smoothly," says the village philosopher, "there's nothing like a little oil. Harsh, peremptory com mands only exact grudging service. Courtesy and consideration inspire spontaneous and conscientious work in return. Anne Teeke: Mr. Gasser is such an interesting talker. Always says some thing one never hears from anyone else. Miss Cynique: Has he been propo sing to you, too?
The Children's Meal Hours. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914
The Children's Meal Hours. Children should he taught to he regular at their meals and to take nothing between them. This rule ap plies to infants as well as to older children. The practice of feeding the little one every time it cries is a dan gerous one to its weak digestive or gans. An infant's stomach, though it needs food at more ferquent inter vals, two to four hours, according to its age, requires the same regularity which is essential to the maintenance of healthy digestion in older persons.

Chapped Hands. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914
Chapped Hands. Some children suffer greatly from rough and cracked hands. Sometimes the. soap used is too strong, but In most cases chapped hands are the re sult of careless or incomplete drying after washing them. It is a good plan to see that the children thoroughly wash their hands when they come in from play. Warm water, plenty of soap, and a dry rough towel will quick ly remove the dirt, and afterwards, when the skin is dry, a little pure mutton fat should he rubbed in. If the ■wrists are very badly chapped and sore they should be kept covered.
LOVE'S ARITHMETIC. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914
LOVE'S ARITHMETIC. He was teaching her arithmetic, He said that v/as his mission; He kissed her once, he kissed her twice, He said, "Now that's addition." And so he added smack to smack In silent satisfaction, Till timidly she gave him one back, And whispered, "That's subtrac tion." But pa appeared, he raised his foot, And snorted with decision; He kicked poor John ten yards away, And said, "That's long division."
LADIES' COLUMN. SHOULD OLD LOVE-LETTERS BE KEPT? [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914
LADIES' COLUMN. SHOULD OLD LOVE-LETTERS BE KEPT? Should old love-letters be kept? Most people would say if asked the question, "If you're unmarried, keep them; if you're married, destroy them most decid dly." In other and plainer words, if you are unmarried, you can do as you like. If you are married, you can't— if you want peace. A love-letter is sure to lie read sooner or later, however carefully you may hide it; however emphatically you may deny its existence. This is one reason why married people should not keep old love-letters—they are sure to be found. The next is obvi ous. A woman can't forgive a rival, and a man wi'l not. It is unreasonable really, but there it is, and you have to accept things as they are in this life. It is unreas onable of the man, 'because if he comes to think about it, a vanquish ed host adds glory to himself, but he is still afraid the other man will cut him out. Not being sentimental himself, he can't believe she kept the old love letters only t read...
AN ABSENT-MINDED MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914
AN ABSENT-MINDED MAN. She is a Kensington girl, and has recently married the dearest fellow in the world. She is fully aware of the latter fact; nor does she hesitate to mention it to her friends. Indeed, so recent is her marriage that some of her acquaintances have not yet had a chance to meet the most charming of his sex. Brief as the time has been, however, it has yet been long enough for her to discover that her husband is absent minded. The other day she was expecting a girl friend to lunch with her and make the acquaintance of this para gon. The guest, however, failed to make her appearance, though a care ful search of the husband's pockets failed to reveal the note of invitation. It was a rainy day, and late in the afternoon the now-despaired-of guest made her appearance, wet and dishev elled. "What on earth is the matter?" cried the bride. "You poor thing, yoa are dripping wet, and you have miss ed meeting Fred?" "I'm awfully sorry," replied the guest, "but I've had the quee...
III. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914
III. The hours when a man communes with his own soul are sacred, and none may spy upon them. Hugh could have told no man— perchance he would not have dared to tell his own dear wife, how he spent the night of the vigil, or what mes sage the darkness had for him. At daybreak he walked in St. James Park—the fuller hours of the morn ing found him pacing the Strand with the will of one who could have burst open the great doors through which she must pass. She would be brought up at ten o'clock, he said, she who was the heaven of his hope. lie won dered that those who passed him by did not cry out upon him for very spite of his happiness. There were few in Court, for this swift surrender on St. Denys' part had not been made public, and none but the lawyers knew much about it. Geraldine arrived at a quarter to ten with Desdy, who had, in imagina tion, driven the great car all the way from Datton to "Lally's House." She left the tooy at the gate of the Law Courts, and went in to And Hugh, ...
II. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 6 June 1914
II. Malcolm Traves was at Waterloo, though it was after twelve o'clock when they arrived there, and he drove with them to the Carlton Hotel. Miss Geraldine, he said, had gonex down to Datton, but would return early in the day. His greater news he kept to himself, chuckling the while as a hoy who would throw a stone but has not the courage. It was good to see him at ► the table in Hugh's private room, sipping the champagne to the accompaniment of deep mouthings and lingering sighs of satisfaction. Not so the Archdeacon, who lifted his glass like a veteran and rarely set it down empty. George Hedges had no poor heart which never rejoiced. And this truly was an occasion be yond memory. To be sure they talked of what was to come—hut with greater earnest ness of what might be. The ques tions they put to the old solicitor brought a merry light to his eyes and a frivolity beyond experience to his lips. Did he think Renal-Smith's evi dence would be accepted? Was it enough to swear that Dani...
