TO APPEAR AND FEEL YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914
TO APPEAR AND FEEL YOUNG. A woman of uncertain years, who looked much younger than she was, took the following rules as her guide in maintaining a youthful appear ance: Dress younger than you are. Never dress older. SNever wear old ladiesf clothes, 'no matter how old you get.to be. Forget caps and wraps and shawls and easy chair gowns. Keep -your figure-young. You carl not .hope-to look young if your figure is old. When you look ir the looking-glas gaze at yourself from the back, nbt from the front. If you look old, that is the point of view from which to re alise the fact. Beware of what Kate Field called the middle-aged figure. It is round in the shoulders and hunched up in the belt line. There is a certain roly poly look about the woman who is older than she ought to be. Take care of your -hair. Straggly hair goes with old age. Old people forget to shampoo, and they give up waving their locks. Don't let your hands get bony. Bony fingers belong to the aged. Keep the knuckles plump...
The Heart of a Girl. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER III.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914
The Heart of a Girl. By HENRY FARMER, Author pf "The Money-Lender," "12a Quiltry Street," "Bondage," etc. (All Rights Reserved.) CHAPTER IIL--Continued. Hilary Stanmore's injuries were not as serious as at first supposed. For the time ,being that was all which mat tered to Queenie. Shock had stunned her; but she told herself that present ly, when she could think more clear ly, when her still terrible suspense as to Hilary's condition was relieved, this unreal charge against him must dis solve like an ugly nightmare at wak ing. Her suffering and her sispense, only partially allayed by what the pa per told her, were relative to the man himself. If it were possible, she would travel to Hasted this night. Home---yes! She must go home first to get money for the railway fare and put together a few things. She was hurrying on again, spurred into such feverish haste by her thoughts that Beryl had trouble to keep pace with her. In Oxford-street she !beckoned a taxi-cab. It was the latest thi...

Important [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 9 January 1914
Important Ooncerning some parts of the dis trict news comes but seldom. This is not the fault of the Editor, for he has no miraculous power of knowing what is happening in all the area of circula tion. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the matter in hand and I cause the silence to cease ? If no one else is doing it for your district will YOU try on these lines . Send ac counts of public and social events in your township or neigborhood, such as weddings, deaths, accidents, concerts, matters touching the industries, etc. Write your name in some corner ; not for printing, but for good faith. Write the names of persons very distinctly. Do not bother about grammar or spelling; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifles The iarest skeleton is enough. Write on one side of the paper only. Give infer mation, but let criticism alone.

HEROISM IN HOUSEKEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 13 January 1914
HEROISM IN HOUSEKEEPI G. So many talents are wasted, so many enthusiasms turned to smoke, s;. many lives spoiled for want of lttle hpa tience and endurance, for want of un derstanding and hiying to heart the meaning of "the present"--for want of recognising that it is not the greathess or the littleness of the duty nearest hand, bfit the spirit in which one does it, which makes cne's doinig noble or mean! I can't think how people, who have any natural ambition, and any sense of power in them, escape go ing mad in a. world like this, without the recognition of that. 1 know I was very near mad when.I found it out for myself (as one has to find out for oneself everything that has to be any real practical use to one). Shall I tell you how it came into my head? Perhaps it may be of comfort ,to you in similar moments of fatigue and disgust. I had gone with my husband to live on i hlttle estate of ipeat bog, that had descenided to me all the way down from John Knox, the Covenanter, who mar...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 13 January 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. A little ammonia added to the soap suds used for cleaning paint is very ef fective. Warm soapsuds should be used for cleaning furniture before furniture eream is applied. Corks boiled for five minutes before use in the case of bottled fruits, etc., can be easily pressed in, and then make perfectly airtight stoppers. To remove tar marks, rub' a little butter on the spot and alloye it - to stand until the tar is softelied, when it will wash oout with warm water and soap. To olean a dark costume, sponge uwith cold tea, to which a small lump of ammonia has been added. This also answers admirably for nien's and boys' suits. To remove spots from silk, mix to gether one ounce of essence of lemon and half an ounce of turpentine. Rub with a linen rag over the spots. To remove black grease from a white sweater, rub lard into the grease spot, let stand overnight, and then wash in. hot, soapy water and the sweater will be white again.
