LET THE SUNSHINE IN! [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 25 June 1914
LET THE SUNSHINE IN! It pays to wear a smiling face ■And laugh our troubles down, For all our little trials wait Our laughter or our frown. Beneath the magic of a smile Our doubts will fade away, As melts the frost in early spring Beneath the sunny ray. It pays to make a worthy cause, By helping it, our own; ' To give the current of our lives , A true and noble tone. - Jc pays to comfort heavy hearts Oppressed with dull despair, And leave in sorrow-darkened lives A gleam of brightness there. It pays to give a helping hand To eager, earnest youth, To note, with all their waywardness, Their courage and their truth; To strive with sympathy and love Their confidence to win. It pays to open wide the heart And let the sunshine in.

THE NEED OF ENJOYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 25 June 1914
THE NEED OF ENJOYMENT. During moments of rest and re pose, do not think of doing things, but think of enjoying things. The mail who is always thinking of do ing things may produce the quantity for a time, but the time will be short, and the quality will 'be absent entire ly. The best results are always se cured when thoughts of doing things are frequently alternated with thoughts of enjoying things. The simplest, the easiest, and ,the quickest way to recuperate the mind is to think of enjoying things. A few moments of such thoughts are usu ally .sufficient 'to restore full mental vigor; but those moments must be given over completely to thoughts of enjoyment. The doing of things must be wholly forgotten for the time being, and the mind must give its all to the pleasing picture that it has chosen to entertain.

THE BEST THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 25 June 1914
THE BEST THINGS. "I like, to have company," said a little girl, "for then we have our pret ty dishes." Again a little boy ex claimed: "I wish we could play in the parlor just a little while, but mo ther says it is no place for' boys." 1 know clumsy little fingers will dis arrange and break even our most chorished things, but better so than to make them stay in the kitchen to frown at them and keep saying, "You mustn't touch!" "Come out of that room, you dirty boy!" and to have the table set with all the cracked dish es the house affords. There are cheap stores in every large town and very pretty cups and saucers for sale, so let the children see pretty things, even if cheap, on the table and not scold if they are broken by the handling of these unskilled fingers. Don't shut up the parlor, especially if it is the most sunny room in the house and sit in a room where there is no sun light. These cheerful beams, wipe out the microbes and keep us well, and in good spirits. Don't have tli...

A BEAUTY SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 25 June 1914
A BEAUTY "SECRET. The beauty of freshness, though not of feature, may be secured "by any healthy woman, and it is certain ly worth striving for. . To securer nice, clear complexion, bathe night and morning, using warm water and a good soap, which must be thoroughly rinsed off before drying. Eat. in moderation, avoiding all indi gestible foods, strong tea, coffee and alcohol. Keep as cheery and amiable as possible, for nothing causes uglier lines in the face than depression and ill-temper.

Lemon-juice, diluted with an, equal quantity of water, is some times used to remove freckles, but) for many people this remedy would be to drastic.
V.R.C. STEEPLECHASE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 25 June 1914
V.R.C. STEEPLECHASE MEETING. Midwinter to many country resi dents is an even more enjoyable time than spring, since though the . fair scene, When birds sang out their lneliow lay, And winds were soft and woods were gray," lias disappeared in l'avor of sterner, wilder weather; yet in numberless cases there is a slight cessation of work just about that time.

I MARIA'S MURDERER. A West-End Tragedy. We had gone down to Torquay fo» a week. At dinner the fi:.-" Maria took an instinctive dislike o a man who sat at the table next to ouvs. "If he had a beard lie would look like the horrid brute who mesmerised that poor child Trilby," she decided. "I don't feel safe in the same-hotel with him. We must find out i£ lie is staying here long. If he is, we can go to some other hotel." "Tut. nonsense, Maria. You do get the most absn:il notions into your head. Svengali, indeed! He's no more like Svengali than I am." "He «, I say,' she reiterated. "They are as like as two peas. We shall leave this hotel to-morrow." "Bless my soiii " I began. "There, that'll do," JIaria informed me; "get on with your dinner. By the look of hire, thai man wouldn't hesi tate to commit murder. I'll take no risks." "Now, I've got a letter to write," - Maria told me as .we left the dining room; "so you may go and smoke till nine o'clock. Don't oe later; I want to get to bed ...
