Ladies' Column. Are Women Rude? [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 21 December 1887
, Xabfes' Column* Arc Women Jluttc? Rudeness ia a quality ordinarily credited to thooe of low social rank or extreme youth, and we hear rude boys or men more fre quently criticised than girls or women ; but our observation for Bomo years and in several Australian cities induces us to think that active public selfishness, which constitutes rudeness, is by no means, nor indeed chiefly a masculine quality. What woman docs not drend to enter a street car full, or rather half full, of women? lucre may oe plenty ot room lor tue nuuea passenger, but ' ladies ' occupying Beats pay no heed to tho rights of others, sit at an nn*lo which makes two persons occupy tho space intended for three, exhibit a ponder ous inertia when requested to ' movo up a little, please,' and frequently look daggers at tho rash conductor or officiously amiable passenger who tries to make room for the last comer. It is, too, often a woman who in tho ordin ary railroad train ensconcs herself in one half a seat besido ...
Odds and Ends. Quits. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 21 December 1887
©l-fcs an& j£n&$. Quits. ' Laugh and the world laughs with you, Weep, and you weep alone.' I. Wo accept tlio world on condition, We fling back a laugh for its laugh, Our smile has a touch of derision, We value the grain and the chaff, ir. We admit it a thingof externals, That carries its heart on its sleeve ; We acknowledge to husks, not kernels, We assent — but never believe. III. We dance when tho rcvol is maddest, Wo join in tho wild-masquerade, With ambition to outstrip the gladdest, In the pomp and pride of parade. IV. But whene'er the time comes for weeping And hot tears must come to us all, Tho world will have one friend in keeping, When we turn with facc'to tho wall. ,? v. The world will give one of its number, In whose arms wo can lean and weep, Till our troubles and we can slumber, And may finally fall asleep. VI. The world wo concede, in our trouble, Is hollow — a surface — a stono But in bold relief from its marble Our friends tender imago is hewn. ' VII....

How to Learn to Swim. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 28 December 1887
IIow to Learn to Swim. The first thing to be done is to learn to duck without minding it. Hold your breath and put your head under water several times whenever you bathe. You may probably strangle a bit at first, but the ducking will become less nnd les3 disagreeable, until tho disinclination to go under water nearly or quite disappears. Of course tho bather need not make amartyr of himself bysponding his whole timo in the practice of ducking. He m*T' cnlncl, 1,„ KU. acquire the necessary indifferenco to being under water almost at once. When it is ac quired, let the bather select a place where the. water is just deep enough for him to sit upon the bottom with head nnd shoulders out of water. Then let him take .1 full breath, distending the lungs, and placing his arras by bis sides, lie down on bis back on the bottom.. If unsuccessful, partially expel tho air from the lungs and try again. After having found out by actual experiment how easy it is to lie down on your back under water...

I would not take the flowcra of life and tear them Apart, their inner secrets all to view, I'd pluck them gently, reverently wear them, If I were you.

If I were you I'd leave some twilight hours 'Tivix glaring daylight and the night's black hue, Some neutral tinted scenes— some shaded' bowers, If I were you.

A Few Amiable Delusions. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 28 December 1887
A Few Amiable. Delusions. That our best girl is perfection personified. That our chrldren aro: phenomenally bright. That tho man who does not share our political opinions is cither ail idiot or a rascal. _ Thnt we could edit a paper with great success. - That dullness is profundity. That vulgarity is wit. That our friends would get along a great deal better if- they would only follow our advice. ? That wc possess unusual histrionic talent. That we can prevent our sons from falling in love with the first girl he meets, just as we did. Of all human virtues, none is so difficult to compass as that aj full nnd frank forgive ness, No word is so often said, and nothing is more seldom done, nnd no gap between the word and the thing is more carefully con cealed. Friend fall out, and ' I forgive you ' ends tho sorry drnma ; but the .assurance is rarely solid — tho sound strikes tho car, but tho echoes die away before thpy reach the heart, and the breach which has been made is always a breach...
