PREFER THE HUMDRUM. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 April 1914
PREFER THE HUMDRUM. Many women, now happily married t0d in the prime of their maturity, 're apt to smile at the remembrance of their dreams of the ideal lover. They would not exchange the hum dirum husband who perhaps goes to sleen after dinner regardless of a wife's presence for the most perfect lover who loved merely in their im tgination. Perhaps they have discovered that, for their own part, they, too, may dif fer strongly from the ideal wife of which the husband dreamed. There may be shortcomings on both sides. But both husband and wife have grown to love the imperfect human being who has lived with them for so many years, and who has long taken the place in their hearts of the most fascinating but unreal man or woman who went. by the name of their ideal.

BEAUTY IS POWER. A Few of the Rules that Create It. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 April 1914
BEAUTY IS POWER. A Few of the Rules that Create it. To be beautiful and to retain that beauty for any length of time, you must have "No heart and a good di gestion." That s;ounds dreadful, does it not. It does not mean, however, that you must be callous and indiffer ent to the suffering of others, only that you should not needlessly grieve and worry over your own sorrows. You should cultivate the feeling, "Well, it can't be helped I must make the best of it." A smile is always more acceptable than a tear; smiles belong to youth, and joy, and content, and are aids to beauty. It is part of every woman's business to look her best. Here are a few hints to assist you. Ward off indigestion by proper at tention to food, and 'exercise all your muscles every day for at least ten minutes. Absolute cleanliness is essential to beauty. You must bathe at least once every day find out whether morning or evening suits you best, and wheth er you can take a cold or a warm bath. See that your bedroom ...
