AN EASILY MADE DRESSING GOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914

AN EASILY GADE SRESSING1 GOWN. What a joy and comfort it is after a day's shopping, or an after noon's visiting, on a very hot day -or, indeed, after a day's prosaic hard work-to throw off one's dress and get into a comfortable dressing grown and easy slippers ! The garment can be made quite presentable and smart to wear at any hour of the day. So that, should you come in tired out after a trying day, the dressing gown may be donned, and quite a respect able air maintained. There need be no " undress " appearance about it. A charming gown, for example, may be evolved from the pattern sketched above. The material suggested is a pretty blue and-white figured foulard, with soft white silk collar and cuffs. A girdle of blue and any other little touches of trimming on the edge of the collar or sleeve make a pretty finish. Other materials, such as charmeuse, delaine, eolienne, nun's veiling, chalys -in fact, any soft dress material - make up well. The pattern for the gown is No. 104 of "E...

CORRESPONDENCE. AUSTRALIAN FREEDOM LEAGUE. -o To the Editor Port Fairy GAzrTTE. Sir, - The following extracts, from a letter received by Mrs Krugger from her son, Walter who was sentenced to 28 day's con finement at Queenscliff please pub lish. The boy objected on religous' grounds to drill. " At Victoria Barracks the dinner was served out in tin plates on bare tables in a prison-like room. It consisted of 2 or 3 potatoes (not peeled.) a little piece of meat(raw), and some cabbage; that was all. No drink of any sort, and no bread or any thing else. We sat down to dinner and four loaves of bread were put on the table, but were grabbed up and pelted all over the place, and all the plates were sent flying on to the floor, so we had to go without dinner. We were on Swan Island, .and I believe the officer is very strict. For tea we had a junk of bread 2Y inches thich, and a piece of butter 1i inches long by %s of an inch thick ; we had to do our best to eat it, get a knife where we could...

WORKING LIKE A DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914

WORKING. LIKE A DOG. You've heard people say that they have "worked like a dog all day." An exchange has figured that, if this were literally true, the 24 hours would be spent thus:-One hour dig ging out a rat, two hours knawing a bone, one hour waiting for a cat to come down from a tree, half an hour begging to get in the house, and the balance of the time sleeping on a mat. in the cold doorway.

OURSELVES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914

OURSELVES. With this, the first issue of 1914, we speed the good-wish to our friends and subscribers that the new-born year will be one of mate rial prosperity, at least equalling its piedecessor, and that hopes and ideals striven for in 1913, but not realised, may be fulfilled during the currency of its successor. During the year many families have been visited by death and even more serious trials, for these we hope the year in its passing will bring a kindly healing influ ence to mitigate their trouble. We embrace the opportunity of acknowledging gratefully the many courtesies we have received from officials in public positions, and the facilities lent us by one and all to further the pursuit of our business. More than passing thanks is due to country correspondents for their promptitude and accuracy in sup plying items regarding events transpiring in their neighborhood. To the Port Fairy postmaster and station master with their officials, Major Kell and his staff, we return spec...

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914

in tle c?ll uoorway. LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. The bluntest remarks cut deepest. .:-Friendship is never hand-made--it grows. " Tears never yet wound up a clock or worked a steam-engine. No sermon is too long for the wo man with a new hat. What a piece 'of woik is man. What a piece of fancy.work is woman. Every man has his price, and many are willing to give themselves away. The very last thing a normal wo man wants from any man is-the truth. A cautious mans is like a hat-pin. His head prevents him from going too far. It is charming to be always emiling,. but- such people as a rule live in men tal hospitals. When a woman meets a man half way he begins to think it is time for him to turn back. The men who think that money can do anything will probably ,lo any thing for money. -A big fist can bruise an eye, but rnot for so long as a li-tle dimple can b5utise :. man's heart. --You may face finaiicial ruin, death, illness, even gaol with calmness, but the tickle of a persistent fly--never.

INDIGESTION Reduces Your Efficiency and Shatters Your Health INDIGESTION has spoiled the life and shattered the health of many a man and woman. It should never be neglected. The occasional headache or pains after eating, which trouble you now, may scarcely seem worth attent pn, but twelve months hence, if you neglect them, you may be numbered amongst the great army of dyspeptics, whose daily toil becomes almost intolerable through chronic headaches, pains after eating, flatulence, biliousness, con stipation, languor, sleeplessness, and depression. It .is easier to prevent than cure ; therefore, act promptly, now, and take Mother Seigel's Syrup daily, after your meals. It is a herbal remedy, made from more than ten varieties of roots, barks, and leaves. You will find, as have tens of thousands before you, that it has a most beneficial effect upon the stomach, liver, and bowels. Forty years of world-wide successes have proved it. You can prove it, too. READ THE TESTIMONIAL. MRS. MI. N...

TRUE ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914

TRUE ECONOMY. Economy - and economise are two much-used words, but sometimes, we fear, they are falsely applied. Econo i 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 more importance-even 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 o...

A NEW ANAESTHETIC. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914

A 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 fronm pain, and that it pro motes rapid healing. He believes that it will prove valuable in accident cases, since it will stop the pain in crushed and fractured limbs; and will frequently avert 'fatal shocks. Injec tion of. ,te new compound. is not fol lowed by intense pain, such as the ad ministration of cocaine often causes. If, after thorough tests, the new an aesthetic proves to be effective and safe; it will be of great benefit to mankind.

THE VALUE OF COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 2 January 1914

THE VALUE OF COURAGE. A great deal of talent is lost in the world for the want of a little courage. ..Every day sends to their graves a num ber of obscure men whb have only re mained in obscurity because of. their timidity, which- has .prevented them from making a first effort, and who, if they could have been induced to begin, would in all .probability have gone great lengths in the career of fame. The fact is that, to do anything in this world -worth doing, we must not stand shivering -and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we. can. It will not do to be perpetually calculating risks and adjusting nice chances; it did well before the Flood,' when a man could consult his, friends upon an in tended publication for 150 years, and then live to see his success afterwards, but at present a man waits; and-doubts and consults his brother and his par ticular friends, till one fine day he -finds that he is sixty years of age;. that he has lost so muc...
