MARRIAGE PROPOSALS OF FAMOUS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 25 June 1914

'marriage proposals of famous men. Timidity can scarcely be said to have marked the wooings and 'propo sals of some of the men whose names are household words, although the manner in which some of them "pop ped the question" provides a hint or two for those anxious bachelors who wish to propose in a pretty and ar tistic manner. Nothing couid have been more charming than the way Daniel Webster proposed. One day, ■\vben kneeling before his lady-love, he suddenly dropped the skein of silk she was winding off his hands, and made with a piece of tape half a true lover's knot. The lady (a Miss Flet cher) completed it, and a kiss sealed the bargain. "Do you know, people say we are going to be married?" said Sir Alex ander Duff Gordon one day to the beautiful Lady Austin, and before she could reply lie added, "Shall we make it true?" And they did. Tolstoi was 'bold as usual. He pro posed by letter, in which' he -wrote: "Teh me sincerely, do you wish to be my wife? But only if you can say 'y...

GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret \ Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XVIII. These were truly liappy days for the young couple—perhaps the hap piest days of all before words of love had been spoken, and when the look in the eye and the trembling smile ^ round the lip betrayed what was pass ing in each heart. Shamus knew by ■ this- time that his father and mother would give their hearty approval to his marriage with Sheila Danvers, but something, he knew not what, de layed the words he longed to utter. : Perhaps it was that Sheila looked so very young, so very childish iu the simple clothes Which had been chosen for her by the Duchess. Whatever the" reason, lie scarcely ever left her, and that love, which had been only a small thing in comparison iu London, grew mightily 'apace at Castle O'Do.vle. Sheila's hand trembled when she touched that of Shamus; her color change...

WOULD YOU BE POPULAR? On this subject the following hints, : which .are,' cf course, sarcastic, are worth attention:— ' Always talk about yourself. it shows individuality and a high de gree of self-respect. Talk frequently... People may lose valuable ideas 'by your silence; be sides, it is-wicked to waste time by listening to the idle chatter-of other folk. When you are hearing a story you have heard 'before, do'not fail to inter ' rupt and tell the narrator that he is relating something as old as the hills. It .saves valuable time, and will pre vent him from feeling foolishly vain of'his'powers. Always make as much litter as you can. It may provide employment for those who mig" t otherwise suffer from listlessness and indolence. Never speak ill of your friends. A much greater effect may be produced if you sigh and shake your head when their names are mentioned. The list eners will then understand that their shortcomings are too serious to be dealt with in mere speech. If you are no...

DISEASE IN AMBUSH. GERMS ROUTED FROM THE LAUNDRY. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 25 June 1914

DISliASE ' IN AMBUSH. GERMS ROUTED FROM 'THE LAUNDRV. 11 is only diseases that arc infectious that ran li; in ambush, ready to launch death amongst the inmates of a home; and when we search the home for the readiest place of am hush we find it in the laundry. This is a statement ol fact easily provable: the laundry claims and cleanses every weejj the clothes we wear, our bed, table, kitchen, and bath linen, handker: chiefs, towels and curtains. Nothing absorbs and carries the germs or seeds of disease so readily as these ; to ambush the ambushing disease germ therefore we must begin in the laundry. Next as to the method: mere cleansing is not enough, for some disease germs may laugh at boiling water, and may even breed in commoner sorts of soapsuds. The only way to deal with the disease germ is to kill it, because its life is its power to infect, and only when dead is it harmless: so we must not-' only begin with the-laundry, but must find a laundry soap which is also a strong disin...

Mary's Belief. They were speaking of the beauti ful sex and their kindly conversation in discussing each other a few even ings ago, when this little incident was recalled.. One afternoon two young women were talking hats, servants, picture shows, and things like that, when one of them casually'referred, to a certain Mrs. Smith. "Poor Mary!" sighfuliy "commented the other. "She is a perfect dear, of course, but she suffers much for her belief." "Her belief?" responded the first,, questioning)}'. "And what, pray, may that belief be?" "She believes," was the soft, sooing rejoinder of the second; "that she can wear a number three shoe on a num ber six foot."

MUSIC HALL ARTIST'S WINDFALL [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 25 June 1914

MUSIC HALL ARTIST'S WINDFALL Miss Kathryn Harris, a niusic-liall artiste, has just had a stroke of luck. She says that eighteen years ago, when she was "working in drama" in the mining districts "out West" in the States, she was a great favorite with the miners in those rough set tlements. They gave her many presents, such as shares in their mines, which, of course, were usually hardly -worth the ! paper upon' which they were written. However, Miss Harris, instead of plastering the walls with them, kept them in an old tin trunk, and a few, weeks ago, while in Paris, she heard from some gentlemen, who were in terested in mining matters, that the exact value of her old shares was £10,000. The lawyers are now busily engaged, iu establishing her ownership, and shortly she expects a nice fat sum for the shares.

THE POOR RICH HORSE AND THE R[?]H POOR HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 25 June 1914

THE POOR RICH HORSE AND THE ( R'.v. K ,POOR HORSE. j The por.r rich horse, driven by a tall coachman with high hat and white gloves, looked very gay as. he pranc ed from the door of an elegant establishment on the avenue. The breast of the noble creature was covered with foam, and lie tossed his head up and down, and hack and forth, and pawed the air with his fore feet. So high were his eyes—almost look ing toward the sky—that he scarcely seemed able to see a fat old dray horse that stood near, regarding liim with a sort of sleepy wonder, and con sidering him as belonging to another "set" than his entirely. The old horse ilid not suppose it would he any good to pass the time 01 day with his neigh bor, as the rich horse undoubtedly re garded himself as far too grand to communicate with such a humble per sonage; so he changed the bit around in his mouth, and was just about to drop into a gentle doze, when a sound of distress from the rich horse caused his plain neighbor to open his ey...
