AT WHAT AGE SHOULD A GIRL MARRY? [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 11 December 1914

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD A GIRL MARRY? The question as lo whether it. is best for a woman to marry early, or after she lias had some experience of life, is one oil which no definite con clusion can bo arrived at, for so niuch depends. 011 circumstances," tempera ment and health, to say nothing of many minor contingencies Formerly girl's married earlier'than now—:'before they were twenty years of age, often when just out of •: the schoolroom. But that was before the gospel of woman's emancipation be came an article of faith to which every woman thinks it necessary to subscribe. In those days girls looked 011 marriage as the only aim and ob ject of life. The restrictions of home were so severe that marriage was welcomed as a deliverance, and as tlio beginning of an existence in which a woman found play for hor in dividuality, and in which, though with recognised limitations, she found some scope for the exercise, of her tastes and ambitions.

City v. Couutry. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 11 December 1914

City v. Couutry. The attack which some city interests are making on the Country Roads' Board is charac teristic of the attitude which a section of the capitalists and others adopt towards the great rural industries. As is well known the great main roads throughout the State are so much out of order that the labour and expense of carting produce is very great. To deal with the trouble the Roads' Board has had a certain sum of money placed at its disposal and it seems to be loyally trying to expend its funds so that the farmers will have their troubles lightened as much as i possible. If the money is frittered away by paying fancy prices either for plant or services the roads will suffer in quality and the cartage of produce be in creased in cost. One would think that while this country is passing through the present droughty crisis everything would be done to help the farming industries by enabling them to get their machinery and roads as cheaply as possible. Country interests howeve...

"I say," lie queried, "is it more cor rect to refer to a man who goes up in a balloon as an aeronaut or a balloon ist?" "Balloonist," growled the special commissioner. "Call him a balloonatic," smirked the stpryette editor, with a timid glance at the fighting editor.. "Aeronaut's the word," chimed in the aristocrat who compiles pars, "and I can prove it," "You can't!" clwrused the staff, in one voice. "I can. You see, it's this way. When a man goes up in iv balloon lie goes up into ths air," "\i£ll?" "And, as a matter of fact, he doesn't know whether he'll remain in the air-or-not, does lie?"

A LIGHTHOUSE DRAMA. The lighthouse o£ Kerdonia stands 011 the rocky and lonely cape of Belle Ile-en-Mer, oft the Brittauv coast or France, two miles from any human habitation. On April 18, 1912, the liglitkeeper, llatelot, was suddenly taken ill, and died during the night. During his last lew hours, one o£ the two children came to his wife and said, "Mother, the lantern is not burning." The dying man had been struck down 'before ho could replace a little screw which had slipped out of place, and was too tar gone to ex plain how simple was the remedy. The woman knew that without the regular intermittent flash the light house would be unrecognisable by the mariners, for she was of a fisher folk family, like all the inhabitants of the coast. She told the children to stay with father while silo saw to the lantern; 'but unable to set it right, came down • to watch his dying mo ments. But through all the long ten hours of darkness the lantern flashed inter mittently over the sea. Fourteen...

On the outbreak of the Sepoy .Mu tiny, the magistrate in charge of Banda was the only European left In the town, the other residents having already sought refuge in Futtehpoor. The Nawitb of Banda, although at heart in sympathy with the mutineers, yet preserved an appearance of loyal ty. The magistrate had 'been in formed that a rising was imminent, and went to the Nawab to exhort him to use all possible influence with the people. Even as they sat talking there reached them a murmur from the town without, swelling into a siionl as the tumult came nearer.

"LAY DOWN YOUR ARMS." Romance of a Famous Novel. Seventy-one years ago there was born in Prague, to ait old aristocratic family, a girl who was destined to be come one of the world's greatest apos tles of peace. Not that she was in any sense a child of abnormal seri ous-mindcdness. Indeed, this girl, who ultimately became the Baroness Berlha Von Suttner and whose re cent death has removed one of the most famous women in modern his tory, was full of the romance of love, and it was really her romantic elope ment and secret marriage to Baron Von Suttner in 1S76 which led her to write the novel "Lay Down Your Arms," which has been read by mil lions iu all European languages, and which led her to devote the rest of her life'to the cause of peace -with such success that she received in 1905 the Nobel prize for lier work in con nection with the lights against arma ments.

SCIENTIFIC HOUSE-KEEPING AND TIME-SAVING. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 11 December 1914

scientific house-keeping and time-saving. By "Mrs. Harris." We all know the overburdened housewife, as we all know the house wife who never scums to have any burden; and if we are acquainted with tlieir respective homes we shall possi bly find that where work is_concerned lliey a.-e about alike—each lias to run a house and family on an income which may not allow a servant, or, at most, one servant at small wages, if we pursue our'investigations further we shall often meet with the surprise that the overburdened woman's house is worse kept, and its inmates made less comfortable, than is the case with the woman who shows a care-free face to the world. And the difference is a matter of brains and method. The thought ot the overburdened housewife came home to me very for cibly the other afternoon on hearing the remark of a shopman. There is one little business house in a street in a suburb that fascinates me. Every thing in the way of saving-work appli ances for the home seems to find i...

THE HAZARD OF THE RACE [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 11 December 1914

THE HAZARD OF THE RACE By Oswald Clifford. "Surely Nightstar will win the Cup to-day. There is nothing in the field to beat him, and lie is in the very pink of condition, ready to race for the proverbial King's ransom. He carries high hopes with him; his vic tory or defeat will decide the destiny of two—my own, and that of the girl I love, the girl I hope to make my wife." Richard Warren muttered the words half-aloud, stealing a sideways glance at the girl seated a little dis tance away from him on the grand stand at Goodwood—the girl in his thoughts. To win her—well, it would change his whole world into Para dise, yet if his horse should fail, he would never dare to speak to her words that only honor had kept back so long. For how could a ruined man dare ask her to share his 'bankrupt lire? Handsome, reckless Richard War ren was bitterly regretting the mud •dle he had made of his life during the last few years that had passed since his inheritance of a fortune that he had squandere...
