THE STRATEGY OF MADGE I. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 18 December 1914

THE STRATEGY OF MADGE L There Was no shirking the fact. The great financial house of Langholme and Langholme ivas in a most criti cal position. For a generation the Arm had been considered one of the most stable in the city, and as safe as the Bank of England itself. And this was actually the case until, dur ing the last five years, a succession of disasters had overtaken them. These losses were not due to any blunders on the part of Philip Lang- i holme, or his son Cyril, who now com prised the concern; but were the out come of the active hostility pf the rival house of S. and B. Quadstein. Ever since Philip Langholme and ( Samuel Quadstein, both of whom were widowers, began to woo the beautiful j Lady Wyllace half-a-dozen years back, Quadstein had sought to injure the stability of the Langholme business. Nor was this hatred lessened when the lady became engaged to Lang holme. She died before the wedding day, and one would have thought that this would have quelled the Jew's rage. B...

TRIFLES THAT COUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 18 December 1914

TRIFLES THAT COUNT. Good looks are not so difficult to achieve as one would think. Provid ing she is not deformed, no woman need be plain, if only she takes a pro per pride in her appearance and finds out the best ways of emphasising her good points and minimising her had ones. Yet few have solved the art of dc'ing this, for few have realised that the veriest trifles make all the differ ence. Many really pretty girls make themselves look positively plain be cause they don't know how to dress their hair or how,to choose becoming hats, and because they will insist on dressing in colors which are quite un becoming to their particular style. I knew a girl of the brunette, sal low-coinplcxioned type, who would In sist on dressing in plain, unrelieved white. Now, dead white is trying to all but the fairest of skins.- In her case it was disastrous. It made the worst of the one weak point in her looks—her complexion—taking every scrap of color from her face. No one would have believed she w...

Some Primitive Remedies. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 18 December 1914

Some Primitive Remedies. Many of our ordinary ailments might bo avoided if we -went out Into the garden and picked a handful of rosemary cr lavender for use in the house. The essential oils that give fragrance to these herbs are always escaping into the surrounding atmos phere, where they carry on war un bidden and on their own account against noxious germs. The list of these pleasant old remedies, so sug gestive of the rose-embowered coun try parsonage of Goldsmith's day or Jane Austen's, is a very long one. Boiling water poured on an elder blossom is said to cure colds. Many people still take blackcurrant tea for the same purpose. A dock-leaf worn in the sock prevents sore feet. A vinegared ivy leaf or geranium leaf cures corns. The pestiferous fly may bo kept out of the nursery with a bunch of elder leaves. Some say that sweet-peas have the same effect.

Causes of Indigestion. Doctor \V. Soltau Fenwick, lectur ing recently on "Indigestion and Its Prevention" at the Institute of Hy giene, said that the causes of indiges tion were often found, not in the stomacli itself, but in some other or gan. The nervous system exerted a powerful influence on digestive pro cesses, every passing emotion indu cing a sudden (low of acid in the case of dyspeptics that made life tempor arily unbearable. In early life expo sure to cold or damp was one of the commonest causes of internal catarrh, and he condemned the absurd craze of exposing young children to inclem ent weather as a cause of future dys pepsia.

Fish as Food. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 18 December 1914

Fish as Food. It is staled that the humble bloater offers the largest amount of nourish ment for a given price, and that two salt herrings contain as much pro teid as is requisite in the daily diet ary of an ordinary working-man. One pound of fresh herrings is certainly believed to be as sustaining as half a pound of beef costing sixpence. And the cheaper sorts of fish may, by skilful treatment, have a fine flavor evolved in them, and be made as ac ceptable to the sense of taste as the dearest. Sir James Crichton Browne declares that for children fish fur nishes the very stuff that is needed to enable them to grow strong.

Melbourne Letter [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 18 December 1914

Melbourne Letter . .The State.electl.Qns._are.over, and, as in the case of the curse upon the Jackdaw of Iiheims, no one seems a penny the worse. If Labor is satisfied because it has beaten Mr. Duffus, only so recently appointed Chairman of Committee, it has little satisfaction in the fact that Mr.. D. Smith,.who carefully told the P.L.C. to. mind its own businoss, and who revolted from Labor, has held his seat against the nominee of the Mel bourne bosses. As for Dr. Argyle's defeat that can only give satisfac-, tion to Mr. Cameron's friends, and j Mr. Cameron himself. The victory of the one and the defeat of the other cuts on political ice as our Yankee friends would say. In the final result the Liberals go back to office with a practically unimpaired majority, and for three years at least Victoria may be regarded as safe from the financial tragedies in which Labor has involved New South Wales and West Australia. One result of the elections seems to be that the question of scriptur...
