When a gentleman meets a lady of his acquaintance in the street, he in variably raises his hat by way of recognition. This form of salute is a relic of by-gone clays of chivalry, when knights rode and walked about clad ;c steel armor to preserve them selves from the sword-cuts and spear thrusts of their enemies. When such a. knight entered any hovse as a guest he at once discard ed his helmet to show that he trusted to the protection of his host, and was not afraid. -For the same reason he bared his head when talking with a lady he knew, and the custom has been continued to the present da...

WHEN YOU NEED A GOOD REST. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

WHEN YOU NEED "A GOOD REST. By a Hospital Nurse. Ordinary sitting in a chair or lying on the sofa are not by any means the most restful positions you can adopt, cor, though they ease certain parts of the body, they leave others just as j strained and tired as ever. Perhaps you may not know th«r val ue of putting your feet up as high as they will comfortably go. It ia not elegant, I know, to sit with your feet jn the table or the mantelpiece, but it is most restful and good for you, so you may just as well do it when you are alone. A doctor once totd me that he was constantly impressing this "feet-up" treatmerit On girls whose Work made it necessary for tiierri to starid about a great deal—silop assistants, teach ers, and so on. "Get yoilr feet up as high as your head whenever you pos sibly can," he ordered, riis patients used to think this very strange at first, but they quickly realised what a wonderful relief it gave to aching feet and tired legs.

The Hypothetical Question. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

The Hypothetical Question. "Miss Prittly," said the young law yer with the high brow and the Henry Clay forelock, "let me ask you a hypothetical question. Suppose that a young man of excellent habits and increasing income—a young man who believed himself fully capable of mak ing a woman happy—were to appear before a young woman who had eyes of rare and radiant lustre and hair of the texture and glory of spun gold, whose lips were more perfect' than Hogarth's line of beauty, whos'; cheeks held a tint that put to shame' the magnificent pink of the rose petal—a young woman whose culture and charm easily placed her immea 1 surably above all other women iu I the world—and he were to ask this young woman if she would " "Oh, Mr. Blackstone!" she whisper ed; sinking into his arms.

Polite Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

Polite Melbourne. it was at a public-house in Mel- ! bourne, where an old lady asked for a quartern of gin in a bottle. "Wo have three kinds, ma'am," .said one of the grinning barmen. "We hove oyxgen, hydrogen, and dry gin. Which will you take?" "Dry gin," replied the old lady se verely. When she was served she said: "I was not aware your master kept three asses before, but I notice that he does. "Where?" asked the surprised bar man. . "Why, there." she said, pointing to the other two barmen. "There is Mr. Compass, Mr. Thomas, and—let. me so, they call you 'Jack,' don't they?" "Yes," replied the barman. "Then," she said, as she politely bowed herself out, "good-night, Jack ass!" A dispute had long existed in. a gentleman's family between the cook and the coachman, about bringing the cream from the farm for breakfast. Their master one morning called them both before him that he might hear what they had to say. ,The cook pleaded that the coach man was lounging about, the kitchen the b...

RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

RED BOTTLES FOR MILK. It is we'.i known that colors have different effects upon health. Some colors may soothe—green, for in stance—and others, like yellow, do the very opposite. The most remarkable of all colors, however, is red, which is noted for its healing qualities. Itel has always 'been a color that has "made itself Felt." as the saying goes. Since good ness knows when, the Chinese have dressed those who are suffering from smallpox in carmine-colored clothes, and the people of Tongkin actually paint any children who catch measles red. Ncr does China stand alone in this respect. The Spaniards make a point not only of attiring victims of measles in a red "shirt," but also of feeding them with red syrup. | Sensitive children should have their nursery walls covered with pa per in which the main color is orange, : while red light is most helpful in some cases of skin disease. Red is not only good for human be ing:;, but it also acts as a preservative of milk. The people of Holland...

THE JOY ROOM [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

THE SOY ROOM It is a good thing to remember that ono's mood may be changed or accom modated by altering the environment. If you wan to ckango your mood try a change uf your address. Wagner used different coloured coats for his different moods, and Gorki, the writer, used "symbolic ink"—red for rage, black for tragedy," green for happiness. In hospitals for treating monlal affec tions it is nofc uncommon to have rooms with walls decorated in definite colours —green and blue for tlio excited, rod for the dejccted. Thero is more in the decoration of houses than is often sup i posed, and a man who is fortunate m having the neoessttry means can almost suit his moods to please himself. Ho can have his sad room and his joy room at pleasure. Environment, not season, is the great maker of moods; tho gardener is often a gloomy mau— the lady of tho house fuis his flowers and the frosfc spoils. )iis plants; thn gamekeeper is often surely because ho views everyone as a possible trespasser, and t...

CHAPTER XV. The Lights of Lisbon. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

CHAPTER XV. The Lights of Lisbon. Hugh left Dover on his yacht, the Christabol, upon the evening of n glorious day of June; he was off Lis bon three days afterwards, and Mat Michel was trying to tell him that this was the finest harbor in the world with the exception of a dozen or nioro upon the coast of Ireland. Mat, to be sure, had been the very life and soul of these anxious "days Though he knew as well as any man what failure would mean to Hugh Don ald, he would never let the word pass his lips. Always cheerful, with a jest at every turn, he became a veritable terror to the Archdeacon, who, de spite the call of Devonshire and arch diaconal functions, insisted upon ac companying his "poor young friend," and of doing ample justice to the ef forts of the Christabel's masterly cook. George Hedges was not a pessi mist in practice, though in precept he frequently touched lightly upon the nether regions. "A man who flung roses into hell," as Mat said with the breezy candor of his race....

THE MALIGNED COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 5 May 1914

THE MALIGNED COMET. On January 14, 1742, there passed away one of the greatest of our astron omers, in the person of Edmund Hal ley, who worked up to the end of his long life, ixis works were many, but the most notable was "his great dis covery about the comet that bears his name. Until his time comets were supposed to be auguries of great good or evil, but chiefly the latter, and many persons lived in the greatest terror of them. Milton, for instance, speaks of the "comet pouring from his horrid head pestilence and war," and, in'leed, they were commonly supposed to presage a terrible war, at least. One of them appeared in the fif teenth century, and was solemn ly cursed in a Papal Bull; but this did not affect the comet, which re appearerd seventy-flv > years later, and it was this appearance which in duced Charles V., Emperor of Ger many and King of Spain, to resign both crowns. But it came once more at the beginning of the Thirty Years' War, and Evelyn accused it of "work ing ...

! IN LOVE WITH A PICTURE. The Italian Who Stole "Monna Lisa" from the Louvre is not the First Man to Fall a Victim to the Charm of a Picture. "I fell in love with 'Monna Lisa.'" That was the declaration of Vincen zo Perugia, the man who stole the famous picture, made to the police. After he had taken it from the Louvre he said that he went hoiiie, locked himself in his room, aafl stood en tranced befotc? it, bewitched by the smile of La GSiocohda* There were times, he said, when he felt that he must destroy the picturc-or he would go mad, so haunting was the smile. "Monna Lisa" has always had ad mirers. One'of the Louvre guides at the time the picture was stolen, stated that he had seen visitors sit in front of it for hours, captivated by the se ductive smile; and the museum au thorities often' used to have letters addressed to "The original of 'Monna Lisa'!"
