BREATHE AND [?] PRETTY. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 21 January 1915
BREATHE AND CHDW FEETTY, Correct breathing is the first art to cultivate in the pursuit of beauty just as it is the first stop in tho im provement of health. As a woman breathes so she is, for the poise of the chest is the keynote to the whole figure. When the chest is In proper posi tion the fine points of artistic wear ing apparel and sill the little frills of fashion are s« en to the best ad vantage. Kven humble materials as sume a certain elegance hitherto un known, But if it is carried badly the whole figure droops and falls into ugly singles. Nothing sets >veU no garment seems right. It is always wrong to make the bone structure do most of the work in keeping tho hr.dy upright. The j muscles should "hold it in position, otherwise grace is out of the ques tion and good health difficult. To breathe correctly keep the chest j up, out, forward, as if pulled up by 1 a button.

(Copyright.) THE PROPRIETY OF Biding Man's Proposal. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 21 January 1915
( Copyright.) THE PROPRIETY OF Biding Man's Proposal. ? BY lUISS ANNE DE LASHMUTT. The Misses Norris sat down to consider. Four of them were in sor ciety, and the fifth .sister. Miss Hon ora Norris had arrived at the alarm ing age of 17. Something must bo done to further their matrimonial ends. They had more pedigree than money and more beauty than either. The supply of ball dresses, street dresses and house gowns could not equal the demand, hence the neces sity of adopting active measures. Husbands there ought to be enough and to go round. James Goodman, attorney-at-law, had called on Miss Teresa Norris since the days oi her first maidenly conquests ; but for all his morning, noon and nightly visits, he was never there on the eve of proposing. Gordon Hunt sent Mi6S Mildred Norris candies, roses, and violet* galore ; took her driving and boat ing and escorted her to the opera and dances, but had never reached the point of proposing.

The Siamese. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 21 January 1915
The Siamese. They spotid three-fourths of their existence in the water. Their first j act on wakening is to bathe; they bathe at 11 o'clock, they bathe again at 3, and again at sunset. There is scarcely an hour in the day when bathers may not bo seen in all the creeks, even the shallowest and mud diest. Boys go to play in the river, just as poor English lads go to pla,jr in the street. 1 once saw a Siamese woman sitting on the lowest step of a landing place, while by a girdle she held in the water her infant of a few months, splashing and kicking about with the most evident enjoyment. Were not the Siamese expert swim mers, many lives would be lostj for the tide flows so swiftly that it needs the greatest skill and care to prevent boats runniug foul of one another. On one occasion our boat—an Eng lish built gig—ran down a small nat ive canoe, containing a woman and two children. In an instant they were all capsized and disappeared. We were greatly alarmed, aud I was on the point of j...

FOR WOMEN illy "Auibrosin-e.") Blouse^ woar was never quite so beau tiful. Even the simplest styles are a bit of a revolution. Ono such developed in batiste or silk has a shield-liko yoke with arched front divided by plaiu graduated collar. Tlio arch is studded with buttons, and the shield lies flat. The rest of tlio blouso is gathorcd to this, falling loosely, and the long sleeve lias a cult with a half turn, and three buttons. Another plain blouso is of crepe or lawn.
