WOMAN'S CURIOUS PROFESSION. Wine Taster, but Temperance Advocate. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 8 April 1911

WOMAN'S CURIOUS PRO FESSION. 1 Wine Taster, but Temperance Advocate. To be a professional wine-taster and yet a-strong advocate and follower of the strictest temperance principles: to take wine into the mouth all day long and day after day, and yet never swallow it this is the paradox which Mrs. Frona Eunice "Wait, of California, has presented steadily for a period of ten years. That she sees nothing at all paradoxical in this unusual state of affairs furnishes a fresh element of interest in regard to. her peculiar work. Mrs. Wait, who is one of the profes sional wine-tasters in tile world, was or iginally a journalist, and slipped into the work of critically-tasting the wine, which she had always before held in abhorrence, if not contempt, quite by accident. Visit ing near some vineyards, she was asked to write a book about wines and wine making. Pleading her entire ignorance of tlio subject as a reason for her refusal, which she did not wish to seem ungra cious, she was surprised ...

SPECIAL EASTER EXCURSIONS. A Mammoth Programme. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 8 April 1911

SPECIAL EASTER EXCUR SIONS. A Mammoth Programme. THE question asked nowadays is not, "Shall I go for a holiday or stay at home?" but rather, "Where shall I go?" ."People are discovering that it as truly pays to change environment occasionally as to read the latest liook, see the newest play, or hear the finest music. Open ness to this truth is a form of connnon sense. A little recreation is a necessary thing. Tiie' lishing-rod, ritle, camera, golf-stick, bicycle, and swimming-bath are found to be just as vital as the counting-house, the ollice, the ledger, the plough, or the typewriter. In point of I'act, the earning of a livelihood is butter accomplished by varying the task by holiday trips and outdoor pleasures, because in this way there is a renewal of brain and nerve force, and the ac quisition of fresh courage for the light.

CHAPTER X. i I Humiliated by his encounter with | Stanwell, and moreover' smarting in I every limb from the rough usage he ) had received at the detective's hands, ! Joyce Redgrave limped baclc to his uncle's private room, and locked him i self in. I Altogether his condition of mind was not an enviable one. A whirl of de pressing thoughts filled his brain, and made him seek solitude so that he might be able to think matters out. The discovery by Willington of the numbers and values of the banknotes, was a matter which occasioned him great unrest, as did also the finding of that partly-written letter from his uncle. These were incidents which were.likely to cause him difficulty, and trouble. Then there was the fact of Miss Devereux engaging a private de | tective to search for his uncle. This seemed to have a special significance attached to it, and he wished it was in his power to prevent Stanwell from I pursuing his investigations.
