WHAT MEN WILL DO FOR THE LOVE OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 31 January 1914

^hat men will do for the love of women, For love of woman battles have beet fought, kingdoms have been lost, fo; 'ones forfeited, and whole countrief get at sixes and sevens. Jacob was willing to serve foi Rachel seven years. Launcelot pre /erred love to honor; his lore for ihft queen was more to him than a seat a I King Arthur's table. All the world knows the story of Cleopatra's bewitching of Caesar. Thd world is filled with Just such stories to-day, and there is just as much ro mance in our midst as there ever was. ( Because they don't wear Roman j togas or suits of armor, or fight in tournaments, is no more reason for I saving there is no romance than ther« I mjuld be to say because men don't use bows and arrows In warfare na Bore battles are fought. The passions are just as real aa ever. It's merely the ways of express kg them that differ. Men are quite as willing to sacri fice themselves for the fair object of their love as ever they were.

WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 31 January 1914

WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. "For women, a capacity for tears Is worth cultivating," says a famous "beauty speciality." "Tears—warm and ready ones—aio a sure preserva tive of feminine beauty. "Tears are the natural outlet of emo« tion, a .-oft of liii'.ihl lightning-rod which dissipates excitement and pas sion. "The woman who cannot ■rceep is she who keeps up her powers of thinking, and whose facia? -lines and grey hairs come readily. • Not only does a Isclt of tears score heavily ; against one's freshness of face, but i it, has a marked effect in general tem comment.

"The Dispatch" SATURDAY, JANUARY 31. PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 31 January 1914

"The Dispatch" SATURDAY, JANUARY 31. Published Wednesday and Saturday The recently concluded Motor Car Reliability Trial from Melbourne to Sydney was a big-success, judged by the percentage . of finishers out of starters, but after all that is not everything. The chief question from a motoring- standpoint is, Was anything learnt from the strenuous test ? Several valuable lessons were gained from the Re liability Trial, and if manufacturers will only take advantage of the knowledge thus gained, consider able benefits will accrue to motor ing in • this country. The most serious fault revealed was that several of the cars fitted with the thermo-syphon system of cooling failed badly, whilst others, includ ing several of the prize winning cars, had no trouble with the same system of water circulation. From -this it appears it is not the system that is at fault, but its application. The trouble appeared to be that on several cars a sufficient head of water is not provided above the condui...
