SOON ROUSED HER. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 13 August 1914
SOON ROUSED HER. "If we could rouse her from this apathy," said the doctor, turning from the patient with a worried look, "there might be some hope. If she could be made to speak we might make her re arise her condition and get her to make an effort to save herself." He turned to the husband, who knelt by the bed, his haggard face buried In thile white counterpane. "You understand her so well," said the physician, almost irritably, "can't you say or do something that will arouse her from this stupor? Isn't there anything you could do that would awaklen her?" A look of hope lighted the husband's pale face. He rose without a word and left the house. It was midnight. Tile watchers by tile bedside heard the rain pelting against the side of the house and whistling around the corners of the old home. A step sounded on the gravel walk outslde. In another second there was a click of a latch-key fumb ling in the keyhole of the front door. The restless turning of the sick wo man's head upon t...

A:. A new source for the seupply of the :, edible bird's nests, which form so popnlar an 'article of food in the far East, has reccntly come to light. Tlhere is a group of small and rocky Islands from twenty to forty miles ofl the .ltlay peninsula and between latitude eight and ten degrees norlth, where the swal lows, whose nests are thus prized, tlock in vast numbers. Two sets of nests are taken away from the birds each season. The third nest is left, lest its destruction should drive away the discouraged builders. These islands .belong to the government of Siam, whicb rents them to contractors. China is the market for the product. In Natal there is a native white mush room which attains a diameter of from cigh teen inches to two feet. It makes a delicious dish when fried, and is eaten with avidity by the Kafirs, who, however, decline to taste the common edible muslhroam which is amet with in the same part of South Africa. SThe annquncement is made that the Founder's Mt\all of tlhe...
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A GOOD DAIRY COW. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 13 August 1914
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A GOOD DAIRY COW. A cow is nothing more than a ma. chine. She consumes quantitles of food and converts it into milk. Like other machines, good ones and bad ones will be found. Poor cows are the result of carelessness and mis management. Good cows are thie re. su!t of care and attention. Trhe care and attention nmust begin with the calf. A good dairy cow must be so brought up that she will manufacture the food he consumes into milk and not into flesh and fat. Of course, it is easier to make a good.cow from a well-bred calf thitan it Is to make one from a common scrub, but the latter may often be turned into a valuable cow if the proper Judgment is used. "No," she sai, gratefully, " I am sorry, but I cannot give you a favor able answer. 1 Ilike you, but-" "Tlhen why do you refuse me?" he demanded. She sighed and hesitated. "Do you sullppose," she finally said, with spirit. "that I amn going to play second liddle to that horrid cliss l3irlks? She has been boastring t...
IS THE MODERN GIRL DOMESTICATED ENOUGH? [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 13 August 1914
IS. THE MODERN GIRL DOMESTICATED ENOUGH? Some men seem to labor under the idea that women were born to be slaves. These selfish beings are con sltantly boewailing the fact, as they put it, that our girls grow less and less domesticated as the generation progresses. Tlley are alarming themselves un necessarily, for when the average girl gets married she generally takes to domesticity as naturally as a duck to water, even it she has had but lit tle previous exDierience. There are, of course, exceptions to the rule, and probably those people who love to pick holes in the modern girl's habits base their observations on these ex ceptions. Certainly girls have more liberty, and do not spend as much time in the home as their grandmothers. And why not? They have as much right to-enjoy their itberty as men. When a sensible glrl contemplates mar rlas sho ',nato. it her business to get to know the ropes, so that she may fill the role of housewife with credit to hErself and all concerned; but t...
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE CAT. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 13 August 1914
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE CAT. The cat was regarded as sacred by the Egyptians; but though it may still look at a king, few are now so poor as to do it reverence. It has nine lives; but care will kill it. The cat with nine lives always falls on its own feet; but the cat with nine tails generally falls on Bomebody else's back. In Cheshire cats grin; In Kllkenny they fight-to mutual extermination; and in some districts it rains cats-and dogs. Watching cats lump is a favorite occupation of politicians and others. The best place to keep cats is in bags; but fodlish people let them out. They can see in the dark. This is owing to their consumption of "lights."
A SONG OF HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 13 August 1914
A SONG OF HOPE. There Is a pill for every ache, a salve for every sore, so let's rejolce and never make a rumpus any more. There is a pou:tice for each head, -droWrj?a?"k u .proue dope; until the gio. up hopo. I knew a man once on a time, who had no store of cash; he said the world was quite a crime, and all its glories trash; and so he got a neigh bor's axe and by the old horse trough, with sundry strong and skilful whacks he chopped his headpiece off. Next week a lawyer printed ads., announcing that this knave had fall en heir to heaps of scads, but he was in his grave. The darkest hour, as Homer said, is just before the dawn; there's soften comfort just ahead when all the hope has gone. There is a syrup for each cough, a lance for every boll, so never think to shuffle off some yards of mortal coil. Misfortune bite us now and then, but if we bravely grin, she'll go pur suing weaker men and rush their faces in. There is a cure for every wart, a plaster for each corn, so let us like...
