FOR WOMEN [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 1 October 1915

FOi* WOMEN "Ambroama. There arc sojne homes in which tho evening gathering at the dinner-table is an incident oi' the clay, looked forward to by all as a ti$.e when household, and business worries can bo thrust upon one side to tho indulgence of bright and cheery conversation, that acts like a tonic alter a busy and possibly tedious day.

"NIGHT TERRORS." [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 1 October 1915

"NIGHT TERRORS." Vv'riliug of "night torrors," as com mon among children, Dr. Adolph Stern says t.'hiit these have a deeper eaiuto than tliuBC given in the text-books, which are: Adenoids and enlarged ton sil.', large or indigestible meals eaten shorty before going to bed, and the tel-1 ing of harrowing or terrifying ntoros like ghost stories. According to Dr. Stern, children who sit up screaming, "Mother, mother!" "The black man!'-'. "The ghost!" or even those who constantly cry for a drink of water, arc generally tho offspring of neurotic mothers, and have themselves been made neurotic by receiving too much attention, too much devotional affection, by being kept too dependent, not leaning on themselves but on othors. The cure for such children is- to mako them play with other children, to lot them do things for themselves, such as dressing and bathing themselves, and going to bed alone. Thus they will acquire a spirit of independence.

A Mother's Duty. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 1 October 1915

It has often been said that a mother's work is never done. It is equally true that a mother's anxiety about the welfare of her children is never relaxed. This is largely owing to conditions which are quite beyond her control. Her back need only be turned for a moment when something happens. Her child has fallen down and re.teived a cut or bruise or some other injury, or may even have been burnt or scalded. Perhaps it has eaten unripe fruit, or has got wet and become feverish, or it may be suffer ing great pain from toothache, ear ache or chilblains, whilst the doctor may be miles away or engaged upon some more serious case. Alone with out suitable remedy is a drendful pre dicament for the poor mother, and yet to-day there need be no cause fo* alarm whatever owing to the advent '<£ the wonderful OZOXIA FIRST-AID OUTFITS. which not only contain a supply of the Greatest External and Internal Remedy, "Ozonia," but also a pack age of lint, 12 yards of bandaging, a roll of adhe...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 1 October 1915

W MJMJLJHTEREST (By 'liusiicoa^) Thore are two methods of ineroasing tin' igricultural production c-f a coun try. Ono is by increasing tho area un der occupation. and the other by in creasing tho production on tho area al ready under occupation. Tho former is pioneering work, tho latter truo agri cultural development. The evor-inereasing demands for food stuffs, the rapid rise in the soiling value of farming lands, the advent of more scientific methods, are rapidly causing occupied areas to reach fuller and richer development. Land-holders are finding that by disposing of half their holdings and developing the other half their re turns are proportionately better and their holdings bccomo farms. Although the sheep industry is tho largost and most important, of tho great agricultural and pastoral industries, yet the advanco mado in .dairying during tho past 20 years lias been so rapid that the cow has invaded tho pastures once held by sheep. With this rapid ad vance in dairy farming t...

OBSTINACY. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 1 October 1915

OBSTINACY. An obstinate man docs nor hold cpin ioas, but they hold Jaim; for when ho in once possossed of an error, it is like a devil, only cast out with grsat dif . iiculty. Whatsoever ho lays hold on like a drowning man, he never koses, though it but help him to sink the sooner. Narrowness of mind is th« canso of obstinacy. Wo do not easily believe what is beyond our sight. There are lew, very few, that will own them selves in a mistake. Obstinacy 13 a barrier to all improvement. Whoever perversely resolve.? to adhero to plans or opinions, bj they right or bo they wrony, because Mich plans or opinions have betn already adopted by them, raise an impenetrable bar to convic tion and information. To b0 open to conviction, speaks a wise mind, nil amiable character.
