THE POOR RICH HORSE AND THE RICH POOR HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914
THE POOR RICH HORSE AND THE RICH POOR HORSE. The poor rich horse, driven by a tall coachman with htgh 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 he tossed his head up and down, and back and forth, and pawed the air with his fore feet. So high were his eyes-almost loolk ing toward the sky-that he scarcely seemed able to see a fat old dray horse that stood near, regarding him with a sort of sleepy wonder, and con sidering him as belonging to another "set" than his entirely. The old horse did not suppose it would be any good to pass the time os day with his neigh- I 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 eyes wide a...
MUSIC HALL ARTIST'S WINDFALL [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914
MUSIC HALL ARTIST'S WINDFALL Miss Kathryn Harris, a music-hall 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 in establishing her ownership, and shortly she expects a nice fat sum for the shares.
Mary's Belief. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914
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 MIrs. Smith. "Poor Mary!" sighfully commented the other. "She is a perfect dear, of course, but she suffers much for her belief." "Her belief?" responded the first, questioningly. "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."
THE BEST THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 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 then says it is no place for boys." I know clumsy little fingers will dis arrange and break even our most cherished things, but better so than to make them stay in the kitchen to frown at them and keep saying. "You :nusln'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 andl very
A BEAUTY SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914
A BEAUTY SECRET. The beauty of freshness, thougll not of feature, may be secured by any healtlly woman, and it is certain ly worth striving for. To secure a 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. ,When washing the hands, rub them over with a bit of lemon, for the juice has a cleansing and softening effect on the skin. 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] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914
V~.R:C. STEEPLECHIASEo MEETING. Midwvinter to many country resi dents is an even more enjoyable time than iprlng, since though the .... fair scene, When birds sang out their mellow lay, And winds were soft and woods were gray," has disappeared in favor of sterner, wilder weather; vet in numberless cases there is a sllght cessation of work just about . that time.

IT MEANS WEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914
IT MEANS WEALTH. Raising live stock always prboduces more wealth in the country. It means greater investment, which, in turn, brings in greater revenue. When crops are grown and the products sold soil is impoverished and little revenue is received, whereas when these crops are food to good animals they bring in a great deal more revenue and the soil is improved.
THE DIFFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914
THE DIFFERENCE. The farm hand sometimes thinks that he has a hard time, but, after all, he is a lucky fellow. All he has to do is what he is told. He doesn't have to worry about running a farm and paying wages, or ponder over crop ro tation and other things. When the hired man shuts the stable door after supper he forgets about his work, whereas his employer goes to sleep pondering over keeping down expen ses.

THE NEED OF ENJOYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 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 man 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 so cured when thoughts of doing things are fiequently 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 torgotten for the time being, and the mind must give its all to the pleasing picture that it has chosen to entertain.
PROFIT POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914
PROFIT POINTS. Give more attelntion to the orchard, the garden, the poultry and the farm animals, and it will not be necessary to.worry all the time over the general crops. With fruits, vegetables, poul try, eggs, milk, butter, pork, and oth er articles of food raised on the farm for the family table it will not require very large crops to make you inde pendent.
CHILDREN'S BEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914
CHILDREN'S BEDS. A child's bed should slope a little from the head to the foot, so that the head may be a little higher than the feet, but never bend the neck to get the head on to a pillow. This makes the child round-shouldered, cramps the veins and arteries, and interferes with the free circulation of the blood. Even when a child is several years old the pillow should be thin and made of hair, and not on ang account of feath ers. PATTERN FOR (HILD'S SILEEPING SUIT. In cold weather no mother should fail to make her child one of these cosy little sleeping suits. Flannel, of course, is by far the most suitable ma terial to use. -JIt represents "Every lady's Journal" pattern No. 46 and is cut.in two sizes-for children of four and six years.

HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY AND HAPPY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914
HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY AND HAPPY HOMES. The object of this article is to im-. press upon the minds of our young women readers that the refinements of fashion, the duties of the toilet, and whatever else composes the harmless amusements of young women, should on no account, unless in very particu lar instailces, impede their course of instruction in the more useful and lasting duties of domestic life. To preserve a house, however humble ,ir however costly, in the best possible order, to have a knowledge in the making up of female attire, and to be learned in the divers processes of cookery, are qualities absolutely es sential to all young women, if. they have any ambition to be placed at the head of a domestic establishment. The liouse being the appropriate kingdom of the wvife, it is necessary that she should be a thorough mistress of all its faults, and in no instance be left at the mercy of servants, who, even if anxious to please, are seldom competent to carry on a household in its ...
HOW DO WE KNOW A GOOD FARMER? [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 25 June 1914
HOW DO WE KNOW A GOOD FARMER? " Hlow do we know that a man is a good farmer? He will not tell you he is; he is too modest for that. But let's lock arms with him and take a tramp across his farm this afternoon; for seeing is believing. He is doing to-day's work to-day. That is a pretty good sign of a thor oughfarnmier.. Things are kept pick ed uip around his buildings. That we like, too. He takes us around where the cattle run against the line fences, and every rail that is out of its place he puts back where it belongs. On the way through the pasture hlie stops to rub the nose of the little heifer. She likes it and shows that she is on speaking terms with her master'. In his granary there is a bit of grain leIt over from last year, and more coming in-soon from this year's grow ing. Coming home from school the boys and girls call out as soon as they are in sight: "Hello, daddy!" And with a smile on her face the good wife says: "I'm glad to have you home again, husband!" The neighbor,...
