WHEN NOT TO MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 27 June 1914
WHEN NOT TO MARRY. Do. not marry to. reform a mnn. Ho who would not reform before mar ringc is not likely to do so nfterwnrda. There Is no more fallacious hope a girl can entertain than that of chang ing an unroformed rake into a good husband. Don't marry a man to whom "Yes" has boen said in a moment of mistak en sympathy or sentimental ecstasy. Sympthy is not love, neither Is ec stasy; the latter when carried to ex cess is a form of hysteria, and both are poor foundations for matrimony.

A head is wanted as wall as a heart; a guide, a comforter, a stay, a friend a? well as an impassioned Romeo spouting lava-like sentences of devo tion. Very often tho moro lava-llko illoineo la the less likely to earn suf ficient to pay the butcher's bill. Don't marry' a man for a livelihood; there are-hotter, safer, nnti moro hon orable ways by which women can earn a...

DOING, NOT TALKING. What miinkhul is awaiting is the bro therhood of ninn; It's asked for; and prayed for, since e'er the world began. Men talk-of It, they preach of it, front ev'ry point of view, But those who nobly practise it, their _ number is but few. Why wait until communities resolve to Uvo It out? It's just by ones and twos and throes such work is brought about. Bach one of us lias got a world tied up within his breast, Ana what we are and what we do should benefit the rest True, "Laugh and ..the. world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone." But that's not the crced that's needed to give tho old world tone.

I .And living, is better than preaching, words are empty things . .! Actions are "just wanted; magic is...
