GIRLS WHO WANT "CAREERS." [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 22 January 1914
GIRLS WHO WANT "CAREERS." Never was there a more mistake* Idea, girls, than that triumph over the world brings happiness to women; It doesn't—it far more often brings dis appointment. For the tilings that make women' fiappy cannot be bought with power; fame and money often frighten them away. The things that make women happj must be won by charm, by lovableness. You • think this is "preaching"? It isn't! You see, I know so many wo men who have triumphed and have not been happy. So don't neglect the comfortable arts in pursuit of the fine arts, and don't neglect the friends who love you for what you are, in pursuit of friends you hope to make honor you for what you mean to become. . There's nothing much emptier than the kind of friendship we get by vir tue of our success in the world. People who have to put up with a great deal of that sort of friendship are always wishing they could run away and hide their identity and forget their success, and see what folks would really think of t...

His Only Excuse. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 22 January 1914
.s His Only Excuse. ' There Is an eccentric lady In a country town who would like to see the male shop assistant as extinct as the dodo. She drives from shop to shop In a sumptuous carriage, and whenever she finds a man behind the counter, she does her utmost to per suade him to adopt another calling. "Why don't you join the ranks?" she asked of a broad-shouldered young fellow as she watched his big fingers cutting off a yard of ribbon. "This-.in sipid calling is sucking the manhood out of you. Leave laces and ribb.ons and calicoes to women, and enlist." "I thanlc you, madam," answered the young man dispassionately; "but there is my duty to the shop to consider." "Your duty to the shop! My man, ■what has your master done to earn your gratitude? Absorbed the best years of your life, killed your ambi tion, and stunted your brain! And what does he give you in return? Next to nothing a week, and a half holiday on Saturdays! Bah! Throw him off as you -would an old glove, and take the shi...
At the Pantomime. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Advocate — 22 January 1914
• At the Pantomime. An artist appearing in one of the Birmingham pantomimes made an amusing, if unintended "gag" whilst performing in a local music hall. Far from adopting the traditional "humor ous" conception of the relationship of married men with mothers-in-law, the' relations existing between this gentle man and the mother of his wife are of r most affectionate character. Anxious that she should see him perform at the liall in question, lie sent her a pass for a particular seat near the Muge, and whilst doing his "turn" he cast his eyes in the direction of the seat lie had selected, In order to give motber-in law a smile of recognition. Owing, however, to some misunder standing, the lady had been shown to a seat elsewhere, and not seeing her In the place he expected, he momen tarily suspended his "patter" and gazed rapidly around the house. "What's the matter?" inquired his partner with whom he was giving a humorous sketch. Quite candidly he replied: "I'm looking for my mother-...
