ARE LOVE MARRIAGES BEST? Nearly All the Celebrities Answer "Yes." [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 November 1914

[ ARE LOVE MARRIAGES BEST? I Nearly All the Celebrities AnsWer "Yes." The question as to whether love marriages turn out the best is one on which opinion seems to he some what divided. Although marriage without love often spells disaster, there are not a few who contend that if marriages were more generally ar ranged, as they are in France, by parents, guardians, and relatives, we should hear far less of the misery and nnhappiness which so often follow boy and girl unions, and which are so frequently the result of youthful fancy and infatuation. iMme. Waddington, the widow of the French statesman, thinks tint on the whole arranged marriages turn out as well as any others. They are gener ally made by people of the same class accustomed to the same way of liv ing, and their fortunes are as nearly alike as possible. "I am speaking, of course," she says, "of purely French marriages. To my American idea it seemed strange to me when I first came to Europe, but a long residence in a foreig...

CORSETS AND MOTOR-CARS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 November 1914

CORSETS AND MOTOR-CARS. The up-to-date motor manufacturer has been compelled to add to his tech nical staff a "corset engineer," whose duties, in a way, arc just as vital to the success of the make of the new model as those of the motor expert. You would be surprised to know that the motor concerns are infinitely bet ter informed as to the makes and the variations in corsets than the ordinary woman who worries about her figure. The knowledge of what is doing in the corset world and the utilisation of it means thousands of pounds in sale and profit to the manufacturer!' How? Why, for ono thing, it determines the stylo of motor-car upholstery. This Is explained by the fact that, whereas one style of corset In vogue to-day may encourage a luxurious lolling position of the wearer; another style, in vogue to-morrow, may compel a severely upright position. Conse quently designers find it incumbent to study other matters besides motor engineering. Advance information being desir able, the ...

SCHOLAR AND HERMIT. Romance of & Literary Wine Merchant. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 November 1914

SCHOLAR AND HERMIT. Romance of & Literary Wine Merchant. For a man with a passion for books to hide himself £rom the world in order that he may live alone with his literary treasures is not an uncommon occurrence. It is very seldom, how ever, that a man will sacrifice a lucra tive business and live like an an chorite in order to devote himself to literary work. Yet that is what Air. Charles Augustus Ward, the literary ! wine merchant of Walthamstow, did, his recent death revealing an extra ordinary romance of a scholar-hermit. For many years Mr. Ward carried on a wine business in Mayfair, which he inherited from his father, and which showed at one time a profit of £1200 a year. His great ambition, however, was to be regarded as a lit l erary man. He possessed consider able knowledge of Latin and Greek and modern languages. Furthermore, he was something of a poet and a good deal of a philosopher. And his pas ! sion for books was so great that he left the management of his bus...

£700 HUSBANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 November 1914

£700 HUSBANDS. To those who imagine that the crim inal law under which British rule has long since suppressed the Hindu prac tice of the burning of widows, known as "suttee," on the funeral pyres of their husbands, it will come as a shock to learn that not only is this custom still observed among widows, who must not, according to their native beliefs, take a second husband, and who, consequently, drift Into a life of drudgery and unhappiness, but that tender Hindu girls have adopted this form of suicide because of the lack of husbands. Recently there has been quite an epidemic of suicides from this cause. It began a short time ago with the self-destruction of a young Hindu girl whose father was about to mortgage his property in order to pay the price of a husband for her. The price of husbands in Bengal has risen, until to-day it ranges from about £50 to as much as £700—£300 being quite a usual price demanded by fath ers of eligible sons—whereas formerly husbands could be obtained ...

THE CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 November 1914

THE CRISIS. By Leslie Thomas. He knew well enough how Jessie would have spent the evening, if he had been indoors. He had grown tired o£ her frequent complaints and re S "Just as though I'll hard up for the pleasure of the thing!" muttered Wal ter Biron resentfully, as he trudged along home. "I couldn't prevent Quex anj Galer's bankruptcy. It was no, fault o£ mine!" His day's search for employment had been unsuccessful, as usual. Sick of disappointments and rebuffs, he had deliberately stayed out late to avoid his wife's irritating questions. She made no allowances, he reflected. She persisted in believing that good posi tions were easily obtainable for the mere asking. Her manner during the pask weeks of anxiety plainly showed she was sorry she had ever mar ried him. She knew his savings were gone and he was desperate for money; yet, just because it had belonged to her mother, and contained a portrait and a lock of hair, she obstinately refused to part with that old-fashioned locke...

WOUNDS IN WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 November 1914

WOUNDS IN WAR. A French doctor who went through the recent Balkan war gives the fol lowing interesting account of wounds and how they are got. Dr. Laurent's experience shows that in modern warfare, where the soldier fires under cover as much as possible, lying prone in a trench, bullets from the enemy either hit him on the head or catch his hands. The right hand is protected by the rifle, so that it is the left that gets hurt. Dr. Laurent suggests the use of a metallic shield, sufficiently light, yet resistant, to protect the head, another fixed to the left hand or on the rifle itself, and a third to protect the region of the heart. Many soldiers have had their lives saved by the chance pre sence of a pocket-book filled with papers, or even of a metallic cigarette case, In the left breast-pocket of their tunic. Superposed sheets of paper have always constituted, even in an- , cient wars, an excellent shield. r Dr. Laurent's statistics show from S2 to 84 per cent, of bullet wounds, t...

THE DOCTOR'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 7 November 1914

THE DOCTOR'S ADVICE. The late Dr. Torrop, the "factory j doctor" of Heywood, was a keen critic ' of the housewives he came in contact with. He gave them advice at times in a very outspoken manner. On one occasion he was visiting a 1 patient, and, cucumber and onions be- j ing mentioned, the doctor asked if the lady knew how to properly prepare I that desirable appetiser. Without j waiting for her reply he began to "lay I down the law:" "Take a good-sized cucumber," he said, "skin it lengthways; cut it into very thin slices. Next an onion; shred it as fine as the cucumber; place in alternate layers In a shallow glass dish; season with pepper and salt; cover with vinegar, and leave in a cool place for four hours; then take up the dish very carefully, walk into the backyard, and pour the contents into the ash-pit!" A wealthy man was motoring through a remote district in Ireland, when he came upon a poor woman seated, with all her humble furniture I about her, in the middle of the road ...

Surface pug' or Comraci Wort? DISCUSSED BY GRJLNVILLE COUNCIL. QUESTION STILL UNDECIDED "When the question of the appoint ment of permanent surfacemen was brought forward at Thursday's meeting of the Grenville . Shire Council, Cr Vaughan observed that if they wanted to spoil a good man put him on as a surfaceman. It was the nature of the work that made them so. When travellers came along a road they would pull up and make a man stop his work while they talked about the elections or the war. From hid observations in the past he was against the proposal, Cr Poynton said that Cr Vaughan had not advanced any reasonable argument why the proposal should not be given a trial. Really good men could be chosen, and by quot ing the cost of certain works in the shire, by contract he proved that similar work had been carried out by day labor at a third of the cost. I-Ie maintained that if a man were in the permanent employ ot the council he would take more interest in his work, ami the sort of t...
