DOES IT PAY TO BOAST? [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

DOES IT PAY TO BOAST? The chronic and Incorrigible boast er, like tliiof or a liar, i8 a post to soeiety. Reckless in self-praise, and always determined to go one better than a rival, be does not deserve to succced. But there is such a thing as legitimate boasting, nnd the person who calls this to his aid succeeds where a modest rival fails. By It first-class berths have 'been secured, and fortunes made. It is an aid to suc cess up to a point, and so long as the truth is ndhered to. There is no room for the bashful person in tho present-day rush. Tell your own" story, for no one expects you to disclose your fallings. It is DOBstt>le to do this without indulging in too much self-praise. Unfortunate ly, we do not all possess the aptitude for "blowing our own trumpet" with out appearing to brag; but -we should try to acquire this accomplishment, otherwise we cannot expect to "get on." It is a species of legitimate hoast-1 ing which prompts the shopkeeper to put his best goods in the...

LADY FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

LADY FARMERS. Sedgewick, a community in tlmt distr'ct of the Western Canadian prairies known as Central Alberta, is six thousand miles distant from Great Britain, but it Is the location of a colony of settlers from the old coun try who were attracted to the ready made farms prepared here by the Canadian Pacific Railway. Most of the farmers under this scheme are married men, hut on one of the farms on this colony-are two 'bachelor girls—they are too young to be referred to as spinsters. To this farm Mr. H A. Kennedy, a well-known writer, recently paid a visit. Two young ladies (he says) are working in partnership. They And no .difficulty in the arrangement, though the average farmer out there assures you that partnerships are unworkable in such a business. Each member is responsible for her own department, "but is always ready to help the other.

A WORD FOR SERVIA. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

A WORD FOR 8ERVIA. The cloud, no bigger than a man's hand, from which this tempest of war has arisen In four days, first appeared over the little kingdom of Servia, about whose fate it is safe to say that no one in Britain until quite lately has vary seriously cared. And yet, as wevare already fighting on her side with only a few days' warning, it is well to examine the juBtice of her cause. Servia has for some time been exceedingly unpopular In Europe. She has no aristocracy to represent her In the brilliant society of the great capitals. Her royal house has in the past disgraced Itself publicly before Europe. The finishing touch to her sordid reputation waB the brutal mur der of her late King and Queen by a military conspiracy. But when we come to examine realities, as the .spur heel of war pricks us to do, all these blotches on her character are seen to have no fundamental importance. In spite of all her barbarism, this coun try of 5,000,000 Inhabitants, with no wealth, no indust...

Treatment of the Hair. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

Treatment of the Hafr. The hair is provided with oil toy the sebaceous glands that lie at its roots. Regular and vigorous -'brushing of the hair increases the flow of oil and keeps the hair glossy. The hair is fed -by the blood-vessels that enter the inner layer of skin in which the hair root is embedded. A good ner vous system, which promotes a good circulation, is one of the essentials in producing a healthy growth of hair. It is as necessary for tho scalp to be kept clean as for the surface of any otber portion of the skin to be kepT c^an. The hair should be thorough ly brushed to remove dust. It should be left loose and free at night to al» low the moisture to evaporate and to permit air to pass through it freely. The scalp should be thoroughly rub-1 bed at least once a week. This pro motes a good circulation, and thus I gives the hair a vigorous growth. The hair should be washed at least once i a month. Soft water, mild soap, and thorough rinsing in clear water are essential to...

Protection of the Throat. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

Protection of the Throat. The throat Is subjected to so many forms of Irritation that the proper care of It is essential to comfort, and fortunately the means employed for comfort help to avert the catarrhal disorders and many general diseases, the germs of which enter the body through the tonsils or adjacent rau cous membrane. There Is always dan* gor that even a trivial catarrh may ex tend to the larynx or ear and impair -the voice or hearing. Children be come afflicted with catarrh chiefly as a result of post-nasal growths or en largement of the tonsils; or they may fail to recover fully from an attack of measles, scarlet fever, whooping cough, or diphtheria. Adults often bring it upon themselves through im proper food and drink or bad habits. All forms of irritation may be aggra vated by conditions incident to cer tain occupations as well as by unfa vorable climatic influences.

MEDICAL MEMS. Airing the Bedclothes. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

MEDICAL MEMS. Airing the Bedclothes. Some busy housekeepers pride themselves upon their methodical hab its, and boast that their housework is all finished early In the forenoon. This is eminently praiseworthy from one point of view; but this expedition In disposing of household tasks Invar iably indicates that one of the house hold duties has been seriously neglect ed, namely, the airing of the bed clothes and mattresses. Few housekeepers perhaps realise that the average individual loses nearly a pound in weight dur/ng the night in the form of carbonic acid and effete matter, thrown off by the lungs and the skin. While It is true that a large portion of this deleterious mat ter is diffused through the air, yet a considerable proportion Is absorbed by the bedding; hence the advisabil ity of subjecting the mattress and cJothfng to the action of the sun and air for at least two hours. If tho morning is dull and cloudy, the bed clothes should receive at least three hours' exposure. The ...

Tito Honorable Joint, familiar ta a wide circle of friends as "The Mixture/' which is a pun when you come to think of it, is the third son of tho Karl of Clyde, nnd in his day was an Admir able Crlchton in the world of sport. There is no occasion to tell tho public that John Glasgow was a triple blue and a TcbI Match player.

CHAPTER XXVIII. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 December 1914

CHAPTER XXVIII. We are married now! Sometimes I am unable to realise my own happiness, aud I have to seek Joan out to assure myself that It is not a dream. Both of us received storms of congratulations from my friends and acquaintances, but I count none of them as wortfc very much In comparison with the ovation we re ceived when we visited Castle Effing ham. That was a genuine tribute of love to Joan. The church bells pealed; the one street was decorated with flags; the whole population met us at the sta tion, and the vicar made us a speech, of which I am sure I do not recollect a word, but which caused the old gentleman to use his pocket handker chief on Bever&l occasions, and the villagers to All up the amazing blanks In his eloquonce with wild hurrahs. It was all for Joan—God bless her! They remembered her kindness, her tenderness towards the suffering, her heroism when she nursed the village through a dreadful epidemic, and they rejoiced whole-heartedly in the turn of th...

CHAPTER V. "On with the Dance Ida, bewildered and confused, al most incapable of following what was .aid to her, stared at Valerio Bruue, with a pathetic inquiry in her eyes.

Six months ago she would have looked for ward to au adventure like this, and she had been learning things lately and a sense of peril restrained her. Valerie glanced at her impatiently.
