NEAT GIRLS GET THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 26 February 1916
NEAT GIRLS 'GET THERE. It is a positive pleasure to look at a girl who is spotlessly neat. You never can look well-dressed un less you do your hair well, and arrange your costume neatly, and pay strict attention to such minor details av gloves and boots. It is just as important to be neat about the house as to be neat about your person. Don't leave your clothes lying about on chairs. Your things will last twice as long, and you will look twice as well-dressed if you take good care of them. Many a match has been spoiled by the man imagining that his lote was too untidy to make a good wife.
MAKE THE BEST OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 26 February 1916
MAKE THE BEST OF IT. There is scarcely anyone who does not think but that he has been un justly dealt with, either by nature or fortune. If these individual imper fections can be remedied, strive in every legitimate way to help your selves. If not, make the .best of-them. It is not so much our own actual condition of life that breeds happiness as the use which we make of our op portunities. Some people will be cheery and useful anywhere, and un der any livable conditions. Others are correspondingly dismal. .Therefore, as a matter of self-converiience, make the best of things. A smile and a bright word will lead you to success, when dismal thoughts mean failure.
[?]IVES AS BUSINESS ADVISERS [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 26 February 1916
HIVES AS BUSINESS ADVISERB Every man should consult. his wife, encourage hero to think for him, and carefully consider her suggestions. So at. least thinks a lady who may be regarded as an authority, since.she is her husband's adviser and business p?artner. "Mew, as a rule," she said, "do not realise that many women have a power of suggestion, criticism, and judgment equal, if not superior, to that of men. The mere fact that a woman does not' understand business details is no argument against her powers as an adviser. This generally means merely that she will have no bias, and will not be hoodwinked by forms and methods. She will see clearly the underlying principles of a scheme. "Most of all she will be able to gauge with unerring accuracy the characters of the men connected with an enterprise, and this is often the most important part of the problem."
BREATHING AND BEAUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 26 February 1916
BREATHING AND BEAUTY. No. woman can have bright eyes, a oeautiful skin, or an elastic step ii she does not supply her lungs with Dxygen. She can do this by deep breathing. The indolent woman regains her lost ,nergy when she learns how to breathe ::orrectly. The sallow girl, with the lark 'circles under her eyes, discovers that with correct breathing the con. .,ested veins will yield to the stimu. Lated circulation, the dark rings dis appear, and the lustre reappears in the eyes. Deep breathing will help to make aurves where there are angles, and it is a potent factor in the cure of nmaciation, because it. supplies oxy. gen to the wasted tissues, and sets the machinery of the vital ozgans go tng. The aborigines of Africa are divides into tribes. They are distinguished L? their physical features as well at ~y certain tribal marks and differ. ences of dialect. Unity is aliiiost im possible on account of tribal animosi ties, which cause constant feuds that make seriously against the pro...
