MARRY FOR HAPPINESS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 6 May 1914
MARRY FOR HAPPINESS, To see some folks it would seem that they have entirely forgotten that they married for the purpose of being happy themselves and also to render their chosen partners happy, By being always agreeable, a woman pays a compliment to l\er own conmmon.sense, in showing she is either wise or a philosopher. Such a one is the womain who re. alises that human nature is not per fect, and she goes to work to please and be pleased, passing over as light. ly as possible all the little frets and worries that could so easily disberso the sunshine if they were allowed to havo place. If you are disappointed in your hue. band after you are married, remember that it is just possible he is quite as disappolnted in you, Human nature is faulty, and it is well to bear in mind that there is usually blame attached to both sides, and that what we all have to do is to make the best of one another as we are, rather thanlament that others are not perfect,
ON CLOTHES. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 6 May 1914
ON CLOTHES. Remember that more clothes are spoilt by being left about, or careloss. ly packed, than by actual wear. Your clothes will last double ns long, and always look fresh, it you spend an ex tra fivo minutes in putting them away. Don't forget that fog has a way of penetrating into wardrobes and draw. ers. Therefore wrap delicate blouses, laces and feathers in plenty of tissue paper, and put evening dresses into large linen bags before hanging them. If your tailor-made costume has got wet, dry it carefully, and send it to a tailor to be pressed, This may cost you a shilling or so, but It will keep it looking fresh and in shape, More hats are ruined by careless packing than anything else. Tako a hint and pack your hats as a milliner does with heaps of tissue paper, and always be.careful to remove your veil pine, ;

CHURCH REFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 6 May 1914
OHURCH REFERENOE, At the oonoluslon of the servio on Sun. day evening In Christ Ohuroh the Vicar re marked It was often said that " the man loses his life," but when he sl a true Chris tian It would be more correct to say that "he has found his life," Surely this could be said of one who worshipped with them at the evening service the previous Sunday, Mr. Oliver, the late postmaster, had oer taluly been called away from the service of hie Master here below, but had found his life In the higher service of the same Master in the eternal life beyond, The Vicar reminded his hearers that on the Sunday evening previous whilst preach. Ing from the text " A'blde with us, for it is towards evening " he had said that, as he looked around on a large congre. gation composed chiefly of young people, many of them were probably looking for. ward, some to a long life of usefulness, others to a long life of pleasure, and others to a long life In God's service, If they desired to make any of these wh...
