"I think that tho Turks are wiser about women than we are; the. major ity of women aro only fit for the harem, and I'm not sure that the majority wouldn't be much happier under such conditions. The incurable vanity of man, however, has removed us from our. seclusion to admiro his antics, and it's . too lato to start shutting us up in a box now.

NORTH-WESTERN CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 18 January 1919
NORTH-WESTERN CROPS. 'SHEFFIELD. - The weather con tinues very «"ry, ana what little feed« . there is'in the paddocks, is rapidly be^ coming parched up. Potatoes and peas ore also showing distinct signs of tho want of moisture, and a gooïî rainfall ls sorely needed to ensure anything like a decent crop of tho former.. So far as thc hine peas are concerned it is, in most'cases, too late for the rain to be of great benefit. Householders are now jealously conserving their tank water, and in several cisos drinking water has already to be carted. The annual cry is-again heard that Sheffield should have a water supply lâïïï'on. Unfortu nately it appears very doubtful where that supply could be obtnined, and the probable cost to ratepayers.
