CONSOLATION FOR QUIET GIRLS [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
CONSOLATION FOR QUIET GIRLI Let us look into any ballroom for a few minutes. We shall soon see that the girls are divided into three classes. The first consists of the "taking" girl. She is, as a rule-though by no means always--pretty. One thing, however, she never lacks-that is, conversation. How much sense there Is igber chatter goodness only knows; but aehas the art of looking Inter esteand making her partner believe that she thinks him the cleverest man she ever met. 'And in this lies the secret of her success. The second division consists of the girl who is not striking at first s!ght, who does not talk for mere talking's sake when she has nothink worth say ing, and although often clever, ac complished, and pretty, she does not get her programme filled nearly so quickly as the first girl The third consists of the hopelessly plain, stupid and awkward girl, who generally sits round the room unless she is dancing with a brother-or else has a lot of money-looking disap pointed and ...

ONE OF ÆSOP'S FABLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
ONE OF .ESOP'S FABLES. A dreamer and a man of action loved a woman. The dreamer said: "I shall write verses in her praise; they will touch her vanity, and she will love me for them." But the man of action said: "How old-fashioned! I shall corner the stock market, and that will bring her." So the dreamer wrote verses, and he induced a friend of his, who ran a ten-cent magazine, to print them. And the man of action cornered something or other, and became a billionaire. In the meantime, the girl married a man who inherited his money, and they lived happy ever after. But the dreamer was so proud ef his verses that he didn't care; and the man of action was so busy that he didn't- care. The only one to suffer was the man she married.
RENDERING HONEYCOMB INTO WAX. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
RENDERING HONEYCOMB INTO WAX. Do not leave old combs, pieces of comb, and wax cappings about, as they are almost sure to entice the wax moth, and if that is the caes, wax, which means honey, is soon wasted. Melt all stray bits of comb and then store the pieces of wax away in a tin till all wax melting is endec for the season. Then re-melt and strain and run into fair-sized moulds. Be sure to use soft or distilled water when boiling combs; or the lime found in hard water will spoil a lot of wax.
OVER-FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
OVER-FEEDING. "Over-feeding is the .thing trom which civilisation suffers to-day," says Professor Hereward Carrington. "I consider it is far more important than drink, because it affects a far greater number of persons, both young and old, men, women and children. The surplus of food in the stomach, parti cularly If it be of an irritating and sti mulating quality, sets up a constant irritation of that organ, which is tem porarily allayed by the greater stimu lant, alcohol. After reviewing all the evidence at my disposal, a highly im portant deduction may be drawn, an extremely significant conclusion reach. ed, which affects the welfare of the whole human race, We have at last a scientific basis for calculating what the average intake of food should be by those in health and who wish to remaffi In health. Twelve ounces of nutriment daily is all that the body needs In order to preserve Its weight and to replace whatever tissue has been lo?t as the result of the day's muscular exertion...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
Sir,-I learn by your report of the Borough Council meeting that Cr Im pey, before he has had time to warm his seat in the Council Chambers, is de sirous of upsetting the arrangements that have existed, and most satisfac. torily, for some time past, with the view to ousting from office our lady Town Clerk. As an old. resident of Ararat, I think that this young council lor is rather too hasty iii launching such a drastic scheme. The town will never be that far advanced as to bring about the necessity of having a combined officer in a Town Clerk and Engineer.. It will be remembered that the thing was tried some time ago with disastrous results, and when the council did revert to the new idea of having a lady Town Clerk the ratepayers .did not express any dissatisfaction. In fact ever since Miss M'Neill has taken charge ndthiig but praise has been bestowed;upon her for the excellent work she has idone. Trusting-that. the majority of couniil lors will veto. such a - -proposition.l Yours,...
CORRESPONDENCE. [To the Editor.] THE BOROUGH OFFICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
oD.OR Po?NDMO n' S[To te Ediltoil [ THE BOROUGH OFFICES. Sir,-I notice by your last issue that CO T. Impey, the newly-appolnted mem. ber of our Borough Council, has not been long in getting to work in the way of a nking his presenco. felt.o , Cr nIpey entered tlhe council as no novice, and I; like others, am of the opinion that he will be found to le the right man in the right place when imnortant matters, ouch as the appointing of an engineer, is under discussion. Ararat, as is known abroad, is making headway by leaps and bounds, and it is only right that we should have a man. who can undertake engineering works, and who can also fill the position of execu tive officer to the council. True, it may be expected that the battle will be n keen one, and will either be won or lost, probably, by one vote, but councillors should freely express their opinionse i the proposition at the council table, and not merely record a 'silent" vote. Without disparaging in any way the abilities of the-p...

LATEST INTELLIGENCE &nbsp; (By Wire) (From our own Correspondent) MELBOURNE, Friday Night. &nbsp; A YOUTHFUL LARCENIST. Johannes Krimmon, a youth, was charged in the City Court to-day with. a series of larcenies. The peculiarity about this case was that when Krimmon was arrested he was only eligible for the Children's Court, being under the age. Since his arrest the holidays have intervened, and he has had a birthday with the result that he is now legally of age to be tried in the open court. He was committed for trial on a charge &nbsp; of stealing a bicycle from Elizabeth street. The machine was valued at £9, but he sold it for 15. &nbsp; WATCH-HOUSE ESCAPES RECAP- &nbsp; &nbsp; TURED. &nbsp; &nbsp; Some time ago whilst awaiting trial in a Maternity Act case Daniel Winter calmly walked out of one of the cells in the temporary City Court and escaped.

Too True. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 January 1914
Too True. There is a happy mean in every- thing. It is said that a shrewd old lady heard her married daughter say: "If my husband doesn't do such and such a thing, he'll find himself in hot water." &nbsp; "My child," said the old lady, "a man is like an egg. Kept in hot water a little while he may boll soft, but keep him there long and he hardens!"
