Chapped Hands. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
Chapped Hands. Some children suffer greatly from rough and craclced hands. Sometimes the soap used is too strong, but in most cases chapped hands are the re sult of careless or incomplete drying after washing them. It 1s a good plan to see that the children thoroughly wash their hands when they come in from play. "Warm water, plenty of soap, and a dry rough towel will quick ly remove the dirt, and afterwards, when the skin is dry, a little pure mutton fat should ho rubbed in. If the wrists- are very badly chapped and sore they should be lcept covered.

Malcolm TravcB was at Waterloo, though it was after twolvo o'clock when they arrived there, and ho drove with them to tho Carlton Hotel.

Not so tho Archdeacon, who lifted his glass like a veteran and rarely set it down empty. George Hedges had no poor heart which never rejoiced. And this truly was an occasion be yond memory.

III. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
The hours when a man communes with his own soul are sacred, and none may spy upon tliem. Hugh could have told no man— perchance he would not have dared to tell his own dear wife, how he spent the night of the vigil, or what mes sage the darkness had for him. At daybreak he walked in St. James Park—the fuller hours of the morn ing found him pacing the Strand with the will of one who could have burst open the great doors through which she must pass. She would be brought up at ten o'clock, he said, she who was the heaven of his hope. He won dered that those who passed him by did not cry out upon him for very spite of his happiness. There were few in Court, for this swift surrender on St. Denys' part had not been made, public, and none but the lawyers knew much about it. Geraldine arrived at a quarter to ten with Desdy, who had, in imagina tion, driven the great car all the way from Datton to "Lally's House." She left the 'boy at the gate of tlw Law Courts, and went in to find Hugh, ver...

AN ABSENT-MINDED MAN. She is a Kensington girl, and has recently married the dearest fellow In the world. She is fully aware of the latter-fact; nor does she heBitate to mention it to her friends. Indeed, so recent is her marriage that some of her acquaintances have uot yot had a chance to meet the most charming of his sex. Brief as the time has been, however, it has yet been long enough for her to discover that her husband is absent minded. The other day she was expecting a girl friend to lunch with her an.l make the acquaintance of this para gon. The guest, however, failed to make her appearance, though a care ful search of the husband's pocket*} failed to reveal the note of invitation. It was a rainy day, and late In the afternoon the now-despalred-of guest made her appearance, wet and dishev elled. "What on. earth is the matter?" cried the bride. "You poor thing, you are dripping wet, and you have miBS ed meeting Fred?" "I'm awfully sorry," replied the guest, "but I've had the q...
LADIES' COLUMN. SHOULD OLD LOVE-LETTERS BE KEPT? [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
LADIES' COLUMN. should old love-letters be kept; | Should old lovo-lotters bo kept? I Moat peoplo would say if asked the question, "it you'ro unmarried, keep them; if you'ro married, destroy them most decid dly." In other and plainer words, If you aro unmarried, you can do as you like. If you aro married, you can't— If you want peace. A love-letter is auro to be read sooner or later, however carefully you 1 may hide it; however emphatically you may deny its existence. This is one reason why married people should not keep old love-lotteni—they aro sure to ho found. The next is obvi ous. A woman can't forgive a rival, and a man wfl not. It is unreasonable really, but thero it is, and you have to accept things as they are in this life. It is unreas onable of the man, 'because if ho comes to think about it, a vanquish ed host adds glory to himself, but he is still afraid the other man will cut him out. ; Not being sentimental himself, he ; can't believo she kept the old love letters onl...

The Bull Didn't Know. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 5 June 1914
The Bull Didn't Know. A story is told of a great English personage who thought everybody knew or ought to know him. One day he was walking through a field when a 'bull addressed him in an undertone, and made for him. with his head down and his horns in a position to raise him. He was a Minister, a man of dignity and of political power. But he ran. He ran surprisingly well. He ran bet ter than ever he did for office; and he got to the fence first. He clambered over, out of breath and dignity, and found the owner of the bull content plating the operation. "What do you mean, sir," asked the irate statesman, "by having an infur iated animal like that roaming over the field?" "Well, I suppose the bull has some right in the field," said the farmerA "Right? Do you know who I am, sir?" gasped the baronet. The farmer shook his head. "I am the Right Honorable Sir " "Then why on earth didn't you tell the bull?" said the farmer.

According to an old time chronicler's report, the body of Napoleon was in such a perfect state of preservation when the coffin was opened, that it recalled to mind n similar incident which occurred when the body of Mrs Dwycr, wife of Michael Dwycr, the "Wicklow chieftain," was exhumedat Sydney, and referred to by your humble ser vant in "The Advertiser" last year.
