TRUE ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 3 January 1914
TRUE ECONOMY. Economy and economise are two much-used words, but sometimes, we fear, they are falsely applied. Econo my as practised by some persons is nothing but extravagance, although one might have much trouble in con vincing the person of the truth of this statement. If one wastes time doing work which might be employed in doing something of wore importance-oven though the work be very necessary-it is not prac tising economy. He might better hire some other person to have the work done and employ his own time at the thing for which he is fit ted. A housekeeper who insists on wash ing, sewing, and doing other things for which she is not physically able may think she is very economical, but if she gets sick, one visit from the doc tor would more than pay for several washings or hire several dresses made by a dressmaker and save her the suffering beside. What is the use of buying a cheap pair of shoes that cost possibly half as much as a good pair, and have the soles drop off the ...

TO SWEETEN THE BREATH. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 3 January 1914
TO SWEETEN THE BREATH. Children should' be taught to use a toothbrush and some good dentrifice after every meal, and especially be fore going to bed at night. There are few Uiiiigs more offensive than an un pleasant breath, and few things easier to avoid, if pro per care is giveu the teeth. One of the cheapest ana most enective demriiices is common table salt, and il' used with a good brush re gularly very little else will be needed, 'there are many dentrilices in the mar ket at reasonable prices, and many of them are very good, but, some of [hem are harmful, and it is well to make one's own denirilice. 11' the gums are tender and inclined to bleed easily, select a brush adapted to their tender condition, and do not give them excessive friction. Your dentist will tell you a pre-paratioa for hardening the gums without harming them. There are some gums so tender tluu a hard brush injures tliem. The teeth should be brushed dowuward from both sides of the upper teeth, and up ward from b...

NEW ANAESTHETIC. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 3 January 1914
NEW ANAESTHETIC. There has recently been discovered a new anaesthetic, which prevents pain after an operation. It consists of a solution of quinine and urea hy drochloride, and before the surgeon begins to operate it is injected around the affected region. The discoverer says that after the patient has recov ered from the effects of the general anaesthetic the solution gives entire freedom from pain, and that it pro motes rapid healing. lie believes that it will prove valuable in accident cases, since it will slop the pain in crushed and fractured limbs, and wiii frequently avert fatal shocks, injec :ii,n 01 :i !- new compound is not fol lowed by intense pain, such as the ad ministration of cocaine often causes.

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 3 January 1914
OUR NEW SERIAL. THE OPENING CHAPTERS OF The Heart of a Girl. A powerful domestic story, depicting the difficulties of a fine type of work girl. By HENRY FARMER. Author of "The Adventuress," etc. APPEAR IN THIS ISSUE. Among new writers of fiction, Mr. Farmer has achieved a front rank place by sheer merit. When his name was hardly known his serial stories commanded notice by reason of their vivid characterisation. He has been especially successful in focussing keen attention on the conditions of life of shop assistants and that great grow ing class which includes so many young women of middle-class respen tability. In this case the villain is an intensely daring and melodramatic character, whose designs are calcula ted to set the reader's teeth on edge. The heroine is a splendid type of girl and makes the story absorbing. SUPREME AMONG SCOTCH WHISKIES AGE AND QUALITY GUARANTEED. JANES WfiTSON & CP. l?P DUNDEE.

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 3 January 1914
CHAPTER III. Love, Hilary's daily letter, his flyi nig visits to London, and her OUT courage, helped Queenie through th; next four months. She was still work ing at Voile and Co.'s. A bride needs; a trousseau, and the home had stiKj to he kept up, though the financial1, strain had lessened; but in a way thai) troubled Queenie and kept her awak at night instead of bringing peace o: mind. Mr. Trice had taken a single-rooi: ollice in the city, and was speculatin: in copper with some apparent sue cess. A man cannot speculate witiumi some capital. It was the knowledgi of the source of her father's borrow ed capital that helped to keep Queenir awake at night. Michael Thorne had lent him the money, but, as .Mr. Prici put it airily, on a purely business basis; .Michael Thorne, who, since the night of his unsuccessful proposal it Queenie, seemed to have discarded ni: human emotions and turned hiinsel! into a money-making machine; wlu had justified his boast, "Nothing cai slop me!"

CHAPTER II. The Prices occupied tile half of a house, classically termed "maison ette" in advertisements. They hail a front door to themselves, and also a flight of stairs with a sharp turn be fore the premises commencing on the first floor were reached. It "was late. When sales were on at Voile and Co., Queenie's hour of re turn was quite uncertain. She had a latchkey, and the gas was left burning in the hall passage for her. As Queenie stepped into the pass age, Michael Thome had reached the foot of the stairs, and she heard the retreating shuffle of her father's car pet slippers us he reached the landing above. Mr. Price wore a loud-checked suit, white spats, and a rakish bowler hat at an angle by day; but at night when he was at home-collapsed into a dressing-gown and carpet slippers. He rarely exhibited open signs of drunkenness, but he became very weary after an excess of whisky. That was why, instead of seeing Michael Thome to the front door, he had "God blessed" him on tile ...
