THE ART OF DRESSING WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 April 1914
THE ART OF DRESSING WELL. The real art of dressing well does not lie in slavishly following the fash ion, but in choosing styles and colors rto suit oneself, and in this way em phasising one's best points. A gown, however, simple, should be chosen with due regard to one's own personality, but to do this it is neces sary to spend more than one can afford. The great mistake so many women ;ake in the matter..of dress is in not pausing to consider whether the gown or hat they intend having will suit. thecir own particular style of beauty. Because a hat or frock looks well upon your friend it -does not follow that it will- look equally well on you. Your coloring arid figure may be dif ferent, and:in that case the same dress cannot' suit you equally well. To ie.well dressed- a woman must oe suitably dressed, and all the ac cess'ries,' which make so great a dif ference to the effect, must be care fully chosen.
THE OLD SONGS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 April 1914
THE OLD SONGS. I'm fond of "Annie Laurie"; To hear it is a boon. Nobody in that song declares That he's a Zulu coon. "Washington Herald." And I like '"Highland Mary": The rhymes 'l-e only fair, But no one in that song asserts His loved one is a bear. "Cleveland Plain Dealer." I like "The Miller's Daughter." I do; I always did. Yet no one in that lyric says, Believe me, she's some kid! "New York Mail." And I like "Swanee River," When uttered sweet and low, For no one in that song confides That mother's got a beau. "Judge," New York.
NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 April 1914
NO GOOD FOR BALDHEADED MEN For many years Europeans strove in vain to master the art of a certain kind of painting executed by the Chinese. It was a comparatively easy matter to obtain the materials. viz.. the brushes, paints and the particular kind of paper used-but there the matter ended. They failed to get the paper to "take" the paints. Persuasion and bribes alike failed to extract from the wily Oriental the secret of applying the colors, and for years the art remained the knowledge of the Chinese. It fell to the lot of a young English bank-clerk to discover the secret. One day-unknown to the artists he was watching them at work. He was struck by the fact that each time before dipping the brush into the paints. they rubbed it through their hair vigorously a few times. He procured the necessary mater ials and tried-to put the colors on, in the ordinary way of course, without success. He then cleaned the brush, rubbed it through his hair a few times and again essayed the experimen...

AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 April 1914
AUSTRALIAN EUCALYPTUS. The Australian eucalyptus, or, as it is commonly called, the gum tree, has a world-wide reputation. It has been grown successfully in many countries. and in New Zealand it has been found that its growth is, in favorable spots, faster than in Australia. In Brazil, in which country the eucalyp tus was first introduced a quarter of a century ago, the authorities have came to recognise its intrinsic value for timber. Some ten years ago the systematic culture of the tree was be gun, and recently Senhor Andrade, Chief of the Forest Service in Brazil, came to Australia to secure further varieties, and to consult with Mir. Maiden, Director of the Sydney Bo tanic Gardens, who is regarded as the chief authority on eucalypti. The Gov ernment of Brazil desires to cultivate the tree for the sake of the timber, which is eminently suitable for rail way sleepers and also for fuel for railway locomotives. Even in Austra lia it has been found necessary to re sort to reafforesta...

Wasted Energy. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 April 1914
Wasted Energy. The excited individual entered the crowded room whilst the meeting was in progress, and, having cleared his throat, he took out a bundle of notes, and commenced to address the meet ing. The chairman made repeated ef forts to interrupt the speaker; but he refused to be called to order. The oration lasted close upon an hour, and when he had resumed his seat the chairman managed to gain a hearing. "Have you quite done, sir?" he asked. "Yes-quite; but I defy you to deny the truth of my statements," he re torted. "I have no wish to, sir," said the chairman. "The gas company, the management of which you complain, is holding its annual meeting in the next room. This is the Vegetarian Society!"
THE HONORED GUEST I. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 April 1914
THE HONORED GUEST By Derwent Mialt. I. The room was in darkness, and the mood of the occupant was black. He lolled back in a well-stuffed armchair, his eyes fixed abstractedly upon a dis tant constellation that showed through the open window, nis inward vision entirely occupied in imaginary con templation of an archly provocative feminine face. Jock Ballina was esteemed by his intimates for a young man of re source-an adroit and amiably wilful person. But for the moment he saw no arts by which he might counter the weighty opposition of Joshua Mul grave. M.P., to his marriage with Sy! via, sole daughter and only hope of his mushroom house of Mulgrave. The room in which he sat was the dressing-room apportioned to his use during his stay at Hawes Park. the Mulgraves' magnificent, restored, re habilitated, re-decorated country house. Mr. 3Mulgrave had been a coud try neighbor of Jock's father for twen ty years, prospering progressively all the while, whereas the Ballinas had marked time...
FAITH WITH THE PUBLIC. HEALTH WITH PLEASURE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 April 1914
FAITH WITH THE PUBLIC, HEALTH-i WITH PLEASURE. One of the most remarkable and sat isfactory developments associated with \vhat is popularily alluded to as the liquor trade, is the non-renilablo whisky bottle. This courageous in novation aims at two reforms, both of which are as \welcome as they are ne cessary; it conserves the public health, and checks imposition and fraud. From time immemorial the usual bot ties have been placed on the counter, on the tables, everywhere within reach of ties, dust, vermin, opened and un corked for the customers to help themselves. They over-helped their possibly already used glasses, and promptly tipped the surplus liquor back into the bottle-an unilhygienic proceding surely. which the now un Iv-ersally popular non-reliliable hot tle absolutely blocks. To drinkers themselves, to partakers of the social glass, to the public accustotmed to rea sonable care and lcatliness in their habits and methods of living, the ob vious claims and advanitages of thi...

AUSTRALIAN COAL. Our Sydney correspondent writes: Considerable surprise is being evinc ed because Australian warships dt not take kindly to Australian coal. It makes too much smoke, too imuclh ash and chokes up and corrodes tirebars.

FORTUNEE OF THE GLYNS By Geo. R. Sims. I. At six o'clock on a December muorn ing Barbara MJialleson held the candle aloft and looked around the little bedroom which had been hers ever since she could remember. She was dressed and ready to start on the first long journey she had ever taken from, home. She opened the bedroom door and called softly down the stairs, "Jenny, i£ breakfast ready?" The old servant, the only one they kept at the vicarage, came hurriedly to her. "Yes, Miss Barbara, everything'" ready but, oh; my dear, must you go?-must you go?" "Yes, Jenny, of course I must; bpl please, please don't make it harder for me than it is" Jenny Polwaite's eyes were very red, and the tears were still in them "It's dreadful.

HOOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 17 April 1914
HOOPS. With the arrival of the hoop season, Jessie Pope sends me the following: When you're walking good as gold Down the new suburban street, Where the villas to be sold Are inordinately neat, When you're musing with dejection On the latest by-election, Or brooding over business which is wearing rather thin, If there comes a savage clanking And a swift metallic spanking And a bounding loop of iron barks a segment of your shin Pray accept the situation With submissive resignation Hoops are in! When you're driving in your car With the luggage up behind, And a week-end free and far In the forefront of your mind If a maiden small and sporting Sends a wooden sphere cavorting In the middle of the roadway with an oscillating spin, And all blue-eyed and seraphic Marks the panic of the traffic And the progress of her playtiling with appreciative grin Prithee check your malediction: 'Tis a time-honored affliction: Hoops are in! -London "Opinion...
