ENTERTAINING. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914
ENTERTAINING. Fortunately, • unfortunately, no on„- goes constantly to another per son's house unless it is made worth his while, and a hostess who realises this without taking offence has gone a long way towards making her task easy. It is not mean, but natural to expect some return for the trouble of paying a visit or accepting an invitation: We may go to a house to be interested in conversation, have a good meal, meet pleasant people, see something we don't see at home, or otherwise please ourselves with our visit. - No one can with reason expect oth ed people to come and see them for j more disinterested motives than they'.f fhemse'Ivea -areactuated by.„;A£ter all. ' the affection which is bestowed with- f out asking anything in return can only be expected once or twice in a lifetime. I consider that entertaining is one of the most wholesome forms which a housewife's energies can take, pro vided she keeps it entirely subservi ent to her other home interests. To have a house of y...

WHAT TRUE LOVE IS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914
WHAT TRUE LOVE IS. True love is not the sudden product of a chance meeting. It is brought about by a process of patience and . pain, sacrifice and trust. In love— true love at first sight—one finds it a little difficult to believe, in spite of what many people say. Of course, two people may on first meeting re cognise in each other a lovable and congenial companion, but to call this treu love is like calling a child edu cated on its first going to school. The love that lasts is a thing of growth. It must be very often of very gradual growth indeed. It must be sunned with smiles, strengthened - with tenderness, shielded with affec tion, watered with tears. And this ■ process must go on through the years, for very sensitive, very holy, and in finitely lovely is the perfect .flower. This love, though, that only grows in strength and beauty with each pass-, tag year, has nothmg'in common with the "chocolate and concert" variety. One might as well compare the row dy music of the barel or...

THE GREAT MONEY MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914
THE GREAT MONEY MYSTERY. Lately we have been hearing the stories at first hand of some of the greatest successes of the day in the way of money-making. They all re semble one another in one respect— that of concentration on one thing at a time. But while concentration is respon sible for much modern success, it leaves a vast area of interests un touched, and this area is never cover ed in after life. What is there more piteous than ths wealthy man who, after many years of money-making, has retired? He cannot go down on "melting days," like the retired candle-maker, because probably his business has passed en tirely out of his hands. Besides, it would be the lat thing hi fashionable wife and daughters would desire him to do. They are concerned to put as wide a distance as possible between those early days of struggle and their present social ease. So the poor man goes in for agriculture without the smallest real interest in it, or he takes to owning racehorses, or Jie tries,.to kill ...
WARNINGS TO BANKRUPTS. STRINGENT ENGLISH LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914
WARNINGS TO BANKRUPTS. STRINGENT ENGLISH LAW. Tho Londou correspondent of the Age writes:—The amended Bankruptcy Act, which carno into, forco in Englnud ou 1st April,is ahead of Australian legislation on bankruptcy. It is designed to protect tho commercial community from tho fraudulent bankrupt, and particularly from the habitual bankrupt. Those.en terprising individuals who in the past have made a good living by availing themsolvcs of loopholes in tho law to defraud their creditors will regard its provisions as drastic and oven cruel. Tho operation of some of tho more important provisions of the net has to be delayed for two years, but tho warn ings tho measure contains for fraudulent bankrupts begins from 1st April, 1914. From that date tradors must keep proper account books, for if they fail to do eo and become bankrupt they will find that things will go hard with them in the Bankruptcy Court.

IMPROVING THE MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914
IMPROVING THE MEMORY. Notebooks are the worst enemies of a good memory. If you don't use ' your legs, the muscles get flabby and are unable to stand any sudden strain imposed upon them. The same thing happens with the memory. When you form the habit of jotting down in a notebook every trifling item you wish to remember, you cannot reasonably expect the neglected memory to 'do its work efficiently. You have, perhaps, heard that the best way to make sure of awaking at a particular hour in the morning is to say the hour aloud to yourself sev eral times just 'before nestling down to sleep. Should you intend to rise at six o'clock you impress this hour upon the mind so firmly that you are almost sure to awake somewhere near it. By extending this system you can obtain a quite serviceable memory. Associate things together. Make an assertion like, "After I have cleaned my bicycle to-morrow I must do so and-so," and let the command sink in. The two duties may be totally dissim ilar, yet you ...

CHINESE INGENUITY. 1 • *»'lnteresMng Instance of harness ing Nature to assist in the work of man and machinery In building a bridge Is given by the Rev. 3. McGow an in his book '.'Side Lights on. Chi nese liiJe." The structure to which he refers was built two hundred years ago, and the engineers had many ser ious difficulties to overcome:— "This old stone bridge consists of twenty-five spans, the widest of which measures sixty-five feet. The river Is v.ery rapid, and by placing the piers so far apart less surface is offered to the force of the waters. "The river 1b liable to very sudden and powerful'rises. This feature ne cessitated that the Toadway of the bridge be built of enormously heavy stones, to resiBt the Impetus of the flood without being lifted from their places. The great slabs are seventy feet long, six thick, and four wide. How did the engineers of two centur ies ago manage such a tremendous task?

I hope you will master it enough to make a game interesting to me at times." "Yes, dear," answered Mrs. G„ meekly.

RUINED EYE. (From "Saturday Evening Post.") [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914
RUINED EYE. By Melville Davisson Post. (From "Saturday Evening Post.") Monsieur • Joncquel waited on the great terrace for the Viscount. Be low were the endless wheat fields, crimson dotted with poppies, the white road stretching away towards Paris, and the ancient village nest ling into the hill.. The chateau was almost sheer above. One could toss a stone from its terrace into the narrow street. The brilliant morning sun lay on the world, a vagrant wind wandering inland from the sea rippled the wheat fields into waves, and on the horizon now and then a puff of grey dust would spring up, and a big French limousine would crawl out like a black | beetle on the white ribbon road. "Vraiment! It is wonderful—this I picture!" he salt^. . "But what is God about, to hang it before the door of | the meanest manjin Europe?" rie was dressed for the road liglit English tweed, a grey cap and motor goggles, of which the 'big green lenses gave him the huge eyes of some poisonous insect.

Settling a Dispute. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 4 June 1914
Settling a Dispute. "I must insist, sir," exciaimed the pompous person, "that the device is a fire-plug." "And I am equally confident that it is a water-plug," retorted the mild in dividual. "Now, my dear sir," puffed the pompous person, "this device1 was put here primarily as a plug on which to attach a hose in case of fire in the vicinity. Therefore it is absolutely impossible that it can be anything but a fire-plug." "You are entirely wrong," declared the other. "This plug was placed here to supply water. Consequently, it is a water-plug. If it supplied fire —why, then, of course, it would be a fire-plug." The pompous person stopped a pass ing pedestrian. "Sir," ho began, "I desire to appeal to your intelligence. This gentleman lias become involved in an argument with me. He insists that this device is a water-plug, while I, with equal confidence, claim that it is a fire plug. Will you kindly settle the ques tion for us?" "Certainly," replied the pedestrian.

The amount of ignorance in those matters was appalling. Tboro wero a great mauy wh...
