MARRIAGE PROPOSALS OF FAMOUS MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
MARRIAGE PROPOSALS OF FAMOUS MEN. Timidity can scarcely be said to have marked the woolngs and propo sal of some of the men whose names are household words, although the manner in which some of them "pop-1 ped the question" provides a hint or two for those anxious bachelors who wish to propose in a pretty and ar tistic manner. Nothing could have been more charming than the way Daniel Webster proposed. One day, when kneeling before his lady-love, he suddenly dropped the skein of silk she was winding off his hands, and made with a piece of tape half a true lover's knot. The lady (a Miss Flet cher) completed it, and a kiss sealed the bargain. ''Do you know, people say we are going to be married?" said Sir Alex ander Duff Gordon one day to the beautiful Lady Austin, and before she could reply he added, "Shall we make it true?" And they did. Tolstoi was 'bold as usual, llo pro posed, by letter, in which he wrote: "Teh me sincerely, do you wish to be my wife? But only if you can say 'yes'...

HOW TO GET RID OF BORES. "Come in and see how I get rid of bores. You've otten asked my recipe, and I'm about to deal with one." It was an old banker who was speaking, and he showed his guest into the pri vate office. "Hullo," began the bore, "just drop ped in to have a talk about poor James. I suppose " "Yes, o£ course; neglected his busi ness, lost enormous sums o£ money, fell a victim to the terrible curse of intemperance, squandered his for tune, and even lost his home. Too bad!" "Awful! Did you hear " 'Certainly. Tried to .drown his sorrows, lost his situation, and was left to his own ■ resources. Drifted away into a great city, family suffer ed, he braced up, found • honest em ployment, won friends, and waB doing well, everything considered." "That's Tight, but- " "So I heard.

HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY AND HAPPY HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY AND HAPPY HOMES. The object of this article is to im press upon the minds of our young women readers that the refinements of fashion, the duties of the toilet, and whatever else composes the harmless amusements of young women, should on no account, unless in very particu lar instances, impede their course of instruction in the more useful and lasting duties of domestic life. To preserve a house, however humblf or however costly, in the best possible order, to liave a knowledge in the making up of female attire, and to be learned in the divers processes of cookery, are qualities absolutely es sential ■. to all young women, if they have any ambition to be placed at the" head of a domestic establishment. The house being the appropriate kingdom of the wife, it is necessary that she should be a thorough mistress of all its faults, and in no instance be left at the mercy of servants, who, even if anxious to please, are soldom competent to carry on a household in its di...

Come Again, Reggiel Reggie: So, by way of 'breaking the ice, 1 remarked thm the weather was very cold; Henry: Well, and what did she re ply? Keggie: She said, "The recurring phenomena of iieai and cold are so irequent and so familiar as to be mat ters too negligible to engage my in terest, Mr. Kiakey." A small .boy had charge of a doaki/ •laden with coals :n a Midland lane, far away from any .human Habitation, xae wicked ass tnrew ou his load—a • load too heavy tor tne youngster tu replace. The boy sat down in de spair, looking alternately at the sack and the cuddy, the latter calmly crop ping the wayside grass. At last a horseman hove in sight, and gradually , drew nearer. It was a tau ana ven erable Church dignitary. "Hallo, thou big fellow!" cried tho lad. "I wish thou'd give ub a lilt wu this ere bag of cwoalB!" The venerable rider had deliverc 1 many a charge, but never receivou such a one as this himself, so brief and so brusque. He was taken abac.t at first, but .at last dism...
GREATER THAN GOLD Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XVIII. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
GREATER THAN GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward, Lock and Co., London & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER XVIII. . These were truly happy days for tile young couple—perhaps the hap piest days of all 'before words 01 had been spoken, and when the '°pk in the eye and the trembling smile round the lip betrayed what was pass ing in each heart. Shamus knew by this time that his father and mother would give their hearty approval to his marriage with Sheila. Danvers, but something, he knew not what, de layed the words he longed to litter. Perhaps it was that Sheila looked so very young, so very childish in the simple clothes which had been chosen for her bj; the Duchess. Whatever the reason,' he scarcely ever left her, and that love, which had been only a small thing in comparison in London, grew mightily apace at Castle O'Doyle. « Sheila's hand trembled when she touched that ot Shamus*, her color changed when h...
CHILDREN'S BEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
CHILDREN'S BEDS. A child's bed should slope a little from the head to the foot, so that the head may be a little higher than the feet, but never bend the neck to get the head on to a pillow. This makes the child round-shouldered, cramps the veins and arteries, and interferes with the free circulation of the blood. Even when a child is several years old the pillow should be thin and made of hair, and not on any account of feath ers. PATTERN FOR CHILD'S SLEEPING SUIT. In cold weather no mother should fail to make her child one of these cosy little sleeping suits. Flannel, of course, is by far the most suitable ma terial to use. It represents "Every lady's Journal" pattern No. 46 and is cut in. two sizes—for chjldren of four and six years.. This pattern may be bought for ninepence from , local pattern agent or will be sent post free to any ad-, dress if ninepence in stamps is sent to Dept.

FOR THE FARMER. THE FARM MANAGER. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
FDR. THE, FARMER.; THE :FARMvMANAGEBi More ■ than ■ a ^special- knack: or. abil ity is required to make a farm man ager. There must be even develop ment and mastery of many powers, thorough understanding of all the es sentials of the business, self-training and wise use of the abilities of others. Train yourself, therefore, to think of the manager's work as the post of the chief engineer. Recognise that no matter how many duties are pro perly done, failure is certain if fuel i and steam fail, or if brakes and throt tle are not always under control. The manager's task is to make many per sonalities act as an unit—to harmon ise the interplay of many departments. In the beginning list, group and ana- | lyse, the work that fills the calendar of successful managers—that goes on \ at your farm. Reduce your detail to system and assign it to subordinates. Make sure that you are caring for to day's and to-morrow's work and men, funds and service—that your policy upon management is well-ba'la...
HOW DO WE KNOW A GOOD FARMER? [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
HOW DO WE KNOW A GOOD FARMER? How do we know that a man is a good farmer? He will not tell you he is; he is too modest for that. But let's loclc arms with him and take a tramp across his farm this afternoon; for seeing is believing. He is doing to-day's work to-day. That is a pretty good sign of a thor ough farmer, things are kept pick ed up around his buildings. That we like, too. He takes us around where the cattle run against the line fences, and every rail that is out of its place he puts back where it belongs. On the way through the pasture he stops to rub the nose of the little heifer. She likes it and shows that she is on speaking terms with her master. In his granary there is a bit of grain lelt over from last year, nnd more coming in soon from this year's grow ing. Coming home from school the boys and girls call out as soon as they are in sight: "Hello, daddy!" And with a smile on her face the good wife says; "I'm glad to have you home again, husband!" The neighbor,, passin...

COLD IRON BITS FOR HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
! COLD IRON BITS FOR HORSES. "An Experienced Horseman" in the | "Kentucky Live Stock Record," re minds those who have the handling of horses of the cruelty oC which they may be carelessly guilty: — "Let anyone who has the care of a horse these cold, frosty mornings, deliberately grasp in his hand a piece of iron; indeed, let him touch it to the tip of his tongue, and then let him thrust the bit into the lnouth of the horse if he has the heart to do it. The horse is an animal of nervous organ isation. His mouth is formed of deli cate glands and tissues. The temper ature of the blood is the same as in the human being, and, as in man, the mouth is tile warmest part, of the body. Imagine, we repeat, the irri tation that would be to the human, and, if not the same degree, still the suffering to the animal is very great. And it is not a momentary pain. Pood is oaten with difficulty, and the irri tation repeated day oy day, causes loss of appetite and strength. Many a horse has become wort...

Where She Beat Them. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
Where She Beat Them. The superintendent of a charitable institution for the aged poor in a certain district says that there is no topic more pleasing to sorao poor old women than the discussion of fheir "better clays," when tliey were the fortunate possessors of "everything heart could wish for," as they are apt to express it. One old lady in the institution is never tired o£ describing the finery she had when she was a bride: an other boasted of having once owned a "gold-band-chiny tea-set" and six solid silver teaspoons; while a third dwelt at length 011 the elegance of a flowered silk gown and satin parasol with frinfie fifteen inches long. One poor old lady stood this sort of talk as long as she could. Then she calmly interrupted with— "Well, I never had no chiny tea things, nor no silk gowns, nor em broidered petticoats, not openwork stocliinus. nor gold ear-rings, nor no thin' of that sort; but I have had four husbands, an' I'd like to know whether any of you can beat that."

LIFEBOATS IN SUIT-CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
LIFEBOATS IN SUIT-CASES. "Carry your own lifeboat" is the motto of an Italian inventor, Mr. G. Piperno, who lias what is probably the most ambitious marine life-saving ap pliance on record. When not in use the apparatus is packed into what looks like a man's suit-d'ase, measuring 24in. by lGin. by 8in., and weighing 201b. When disas ter is imminent, the passenger bnngs the suit-case on deck, breaks the seal, and the apparatus opens out and be comes a small boat. „ If it is necessary to abandon the ship the passenger steps into his pri vate boat, closes the outer cover, and launches his craft by hurling himself overboard. Then, according to Mr. Piperno, the apparatus rights itself in the water, the top cover i*j thrown open, and tlio occupant finds himself sitting in an absolutely nnsinkab'e ship.
Mary's Belief. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 25 June 1914
'Mary's Belief. They were speaking of the beauti ful sex and their kindly conversation in discussing each other a few even ings ago, when this little incident was recalled. One afternoon two young women were talking hats, servants, picture shows, and things like that, when one of them casually referred to a certain Mrs. Smith. "Poor Mary!" sighfully commented the other. "She is a perfect dear, of course, but she suffers much, for her belief." "Her belief?" responded the first, questioningly. "And what, pray, may that belief be?" "She believes," was the soft, sooing rejoinder of the second, "that she can wear a number three shoe on a num ber six foot."
