IS THE MODERN GIRL DOMESTICATED ENOUGH? [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 28 August 1914

IS THE MODERN GIRL DOMESTICATED ENOUGH? Some men seem to labor under tho idea that women were born to bo slaves. These selfish beings are con stantly bewailing the fact, as they put It, that our girJs grow less and less domesticated as the generation progresses. They are alarming themselves un necessarily, for when the average girl gets married she generally takes to domesticity as naturally as a duck to water, even if she has had but lit tle previous experience. There are, of course, exceptions to the rsle, and probably those people who love to pick holes in the modern girl's habits base their observations on those ex ceptions. Certainly girls have more liberty, and do not spend as much time !n the home as their grandmothers. And why not? They have as much right to enjoy their liberty as men. When a sensible girl contemplates mar riage she makes it lier business to get to know tlie ropes, so that Bhe may fill tho role of housewifo with credit to herself and all concerned; but this ...

LAUNDRY HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 28 August 1914

LAUNDRY HINTS. Never wring linen with a clothos wringer. It makes wrinkles that aro hard to iron out. Starched clothoa are easior to iron if sprinkled with hot water half an hour before ironing. Do not pad the ironing board with wool blankets, which hold moisture ture and make your clothes dilllcult to iron. Cover the top with a thick lay er of cotton batting-one pound will bo sulllcient-then cover with ono thickness of cotton llanuel, drawing the cloth tightly and sewing or tack ing on the underside. Cover this la the same way witli one thickness of smooth muslin, and you will ttud an excellent surface for ironing. Starch for a black lawn dress, that will make it look like new and will not show on the surface of tho dress goods, can be made in this way-Tako black dye, dissolved as you would for coloring, and keep It bottled. Mako the starch quite thin, strain tho dye and mix a little of It with tho starch. Proceed as usual and the dress will look like a new one wheu laundered. It i...

Trafalgar Brass Band. "Smoke" Night The Trafalgar Brass Hand, which has discoursed music iu Trafalgar for many years past to a delighted public, held its first annual Smoke Night 011 Friday night last. There was a good attendance of the public and the President, Mr A. Harris, presided over a jovial gathering of well wishers of the Band. Mr Barnes, M.L.A. was present at the function and was cor dially welcomed by the President and members. The tables were laid at Mrs Red man's ColTee Palace, and the variety and quantity of tempting edibles provided would have sent the whole British army at the front into a ha ven of delight, had they had an op portunity of discussing the merits of the good things which did credit to the host and hostess. After the attack on the tables had proved that Australians had other gifts than the making of good sol diers, the chairman proposed the toast of the "King," which was musically honored.

CARE AND WORRY. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

CARE AND WORRY. You have heard o£ Care and Worry— dark visitors, they say, Who stalk about familiar as Hamlet's ghost at play. They come and tarry with you, un bidden and unasked, And flaunt their gaunt arms o'er you —add weight to every task. They watch the rays of sunshine, and guard your open door, Lest Light and Hope may enter and sing the songs of yore. Close friends are Care and Worry, they laugh and dance with glee, And pile the faggots higher at each whits lock they see. They glory in the shadows their black robes fling about, And while the cloud is o'er you they laugh and dance and shout. They ever walk before you, for should they fall behind, Their forms, would vanish from you like mist before the wind But over on the other side wait Love and Hope and Joy, Mother and wife and sister, and little Bob, your boy. The robin sings in the willow and the skylark cliants his lay, And flowers blossom about you from the morn till close of day. Kiing back at Care and Worry their black...

CHANCE-AND A WOMAN. The Story of a Forgery and a Cynic's Reformation. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

CHANCE-AND A WOMAN-j The Story of a Forgery and a Cynic's Reformation. "Mr. Canning," announced the foot man. Warren Tockenliam did not look up from his littered writing-table. He wrote on for many minutes, and each seemed^an hour to the visitor stand ing by the door. When at last he put down his pen, he reached for a cigar, jabbed its end into a cutter, and stuff ed it into his moutlr before glancing around. "Well, Richard " He looked at the caller over the flic kering match and through clouds of fragrant cigar smoke. "I beg your pardon," he observed, but there was no trace of apology in his voice. "I fancied my fool of a man said 'Canning'." "He did, Mr. Tockenham. My name is Canning. Richard's my brother." The youth—he was little more than a boy—came a step forward. "I^know you're a very busy man, that your time's very precious," he added eagerly. "I wondered if you could spare me five minutes. The matter's very urgent. It—it is life or death, Mr. Tockenham." "My life or my death...

HIS FATHER'S PAL. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

* - - HIS FATHER'S PAL. I By John J. Armstrong. Across the little gate-legged table the gaze of the two old friends met, to set them smiling. • "So you thought I'd forgotten you, Mary?" said the white-haired Thomas, in his quiet, genial way. "A tiresome, old, grey-haired wo man, Tom " Thomas arrested her with protest ing finger. "Never that to me," he declared, leaning forward a little nearer. "When Joe was taken home—the friend who since boyhood had been closer than a brother—there was a gap in my life which you and the boy have helped to fill. Eighteen years since the dear chap charged me to look after you, Mary. We managed to straighten things out pretty well, and you've kept going very comfortably. The boy is now twenty-eight, and a fine fellow Joe, as I knew him at his age, over again." He noted the change of expression at the mention of the lad, and read be hind it the mother's anxiety. Joe was kicking over the traces. He knew that well enough. The night before he had seen him...

TORPEDO OR BATTLESHIP. WHICH WILL WIN? [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

TORPEDO OR BATTLESHIP. WHICH WILL WIN? "The Fire-Ship" is picturesquely de scribed by Mr. David-Hanny as the rude, .but in favorable circumstances the. most formidable, ancestor of the torpedo—not of the torpedo boat, he reminds us, but of the weapon itself. His concluding words are suggestive. They refer to the question, will the battleship of the- modern world be able to guard herself from the torpedo as her predecessor did from the fire-ship? The question has a big interest for us in the present war. The Germans, it is known, are relying extensively on . their torpedoes. "Many affirm that she will not," says Mr. Hanny, "when what she has to fear is the torpedo launched by smaller craft on- or below the surface of the water. Some of us find it hard to believe that any man-of-war which dare not openly confront an enemy and conquer in an exchange of blows can ever dominate the sea. Victory, has never so far gone to those who fight by evasion, by concealment, by striking in the dark,...

COSSACKS ON THE RHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

CGSSACI^S Ois iirJLE RHINJS. "What's Gornsacks?" asked Paddy (.Lie Boots. "Dunno," said tlie boarder at the Live-uud-.Let-.Lhe. "1 haven't been reading tlie market reports. But I should think they have been pretty dull." "That ain't what 1 mean," said Paddy. "1 mean them Russian rough riders." "Cossacks,'' said ihe hoarder. "Those are the chaps.

THE SENTENCE OF THE COURT. By FRED M. WHITE. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock &. Co. Ltd., London and Melb. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XIII. "Stop Thief!" For a moment Princess Helena made no reply. It struclc Gilray that she looked a little pale and distrait, much as if she had been suddenly aroused from sleep. 'The pupils of her eyes were dilated, and Gilray suspect ed drugs. As a fashionable doctor, he knew the symptoms. Certainly the Princess had disap peared into the fortune-teller's tent a ..few minutes before in full possession of all her faculties, and wearing all those magnificent jewels. And here she was now with not a single stone in her hair or on her corsage. It was no time to stand on ceremony. Gil ray laid his hand on the Princess's shoulder and shook her sharply. "Tell what has happened," he de manded. "It may he nothing but a joke, but it is possible to carry such jokes too far. Where are your dia monds?" ' The Princess lifted her hands to her head...

CHAPTER XIV. A Missing Link. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

CHAPTER XIV. A Missing Link. There was to be no interruption of tlie festivities, that, the Duke had in sisted upon. But all the pleasure and healthy excitement had vanished. Al ready more than one guest had sud denly developed a tlioughtfulness for his chauffeur, whose very existence he had previously forgotten. It was all very well for the hands to play, for the younger people to fling themselves into the pleasure of the dance, hut the chill breath of suspicion lay over all, like an unexpected frost in a garden of flowers. The police were expected now at any moment. Even in so brilliant a house as Glenday Castle it was im possible to feel gay and light-hearted with the advent of a detective from Scotland Yard. Somehow the thought of their coming disturbed the Princess much more than the loss of the dia monds. Meanwhile she was consoling her self with a cigarette before the cheery flickering of a wood fire in her bed room. She lay back, with one hand I thrown behind her dark head, ...

CHAPTER XV. Harley Asks a Favor [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 4 September 1914

CHAPTER XV. Harley Asks a Favor Following tlie disappearance of Van der Knoot's miniatures, the loss of Princess Helena's diamonds created something like a sensation of dismay. It had, of course, 'been impossible to keep the matter private, there are far too many society people dabbling in journalism to make such a thing practicable. The first edition of the evening papers had the news display ed with a score or so of "scare heads." There was not one of the journals but had its special account by "one who was present." A great many of them had also reached the theory stage. I According to one writer this was the I work of a daring and audacious gang of international thieves. The dia monds had vanished in the capacious maw that had swallowed the minia tures. The police "already" had a clue." According to another author ity this latest outrage was a political muve on the part of certain foreign revolutionists to obtain possession of what they rightly or wrongly regarded as crown jewel...
