A Woman's Wife. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 February 1914

A Woman's Wile. The conductor said there was roou ?for a few more inside, but when the tram reached a busy thoroughfare, a , large-too large-contingent of shop pers got in and there was an uncom fortable crush. ' But the little man in the corner kept his eyes on his paper. He also kept his seat. "Pardon me, madam," said a polite man, hanging by a strap, addressing a lady with a burden of purchases, who was standing by him. "Please excuse the remark, but you are standing on my foot." "Oh, I'm so sorry!" said She. "I I thought It belonged to the man alt tins down." Then the little man's eyes rose from his paper, and she got the seat.

FASCINATING FORTY. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 February 1914

FASCINATING FORTY. At what age is a woman at heir best? It I may be allowed to offer a humble opinion, which has the advantage o( being shared by so many thousand others that it is hereby rendered more trustworthy, 1 should be inclined to select the despised age of 40, and say that It is the tlmo which is most freely endowed with all tho good qualities, graces and charms of womanhood (says Lady Phyllis in the "Bystan der"). A woman has then grown out of I he narrow-mindedness , and one-' sidedness of youth; stie lias left behind Its fickleness, love of excitement, and generally unstable character; her mind Is broadened by experience; she has. In all probability, become far less ego tistical. 1 know of no young qualities which she need have lost, except that peculiar freshness and unbounded hopefulness which is all youth's own; but she may have easily retained a young vivacity and an optimism which, if It has parted with something of Its attraction In audacity, has gained much by bei...

LADY CAB-DRIVERS IN PAM& ; Ia ftri* the lady cab-driver Is as* tinning to attract a good deal of In terest and to evoke a lot of comment. People crowd together at street cor ner* and stand looking at a writing cab with a lady on the box, and excited tradespeople rush to their shop-doom to see them pass. Needless to say, the women drivers are doing most of the work and securing the money to tfee disgust of some of the male dri vers. 'The other day a female driver whilst waiting for her fare was regaled with sandwiches and champagne by a shopkeeper, which she gratefully ic cepted. Among those who have quaj> fled as cab-drivers may be mentioned Mme. Lutgen, ex-Countess du Pin de la Ouerlnlere. The countess has Just made her debut as a cab-driver.

AN EXCITING MOMENT. K British Soldier's Adventure In India. Somo of tlie officers of tha rcglmeuti stationed In India arc rather fond oi photography, and often amuse them selves by "snapping" a company or regiment. One evening Captain H was taking a group on the side of a hill under the shade of somo boul ders. After taking the first photograph, he told the men not io movo on any iccount, and whispered to Ills groom to get rife and ammunition from the tent. When they wore brought, he loaded the rifle, tool; it with him under the black cloth that, covered the camera, and placed its muzzle on the stand. He then raised the cloth a lit tle to take proper aim. Again he told the men not to stir, and after a breathless silence he fired, when an awful roar was heard, and H huge tiger roiled down tlie hill dead. This was done so quietly and promptly that everyone was astonished, and felt that but for the coolness of the otllcer some of them would have been dragged off to the jungle. The tige...

POULTRY MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 6 February 1914

POULTRY MEMS. - Those who go Into the poultry busi ness In earnest should take great care from the first to get their "bearings." People are apt to take it up in a hap hazard sort of way, not realising that there is much to learn. There is a wide scope In this line of work for the application of business ability, deter mination, economy and all those things which characterises success In any way o£ life. But in no other busi ness does a little effort bring bet:°i returns or quicker remits than-In t:i poultry business. It Is a mistake to undertake too much at the start, expecting to replace the cost, with the immediate returns. Such ti course is apt to cause the aban donment of plans, which approached more carefully and managed with economy, might have been the making of a good business. There are questions other than money to be considered: one should form a clear idea of wlint he or she intends to do-of the results he or she Intends to obtain.
