FACTS ABOUT SHOES. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 February 1915
FACTS ABOUT SHOES. The danger of wearing thin shoes in wet and cold weather is obvious, and yet many women make no difference In the thic. ness of their shoes, whether it is cold or warm, wet of fine, and many dangerous illnesses are caused) through this foolishness. ' Shoes that are too loose should also be avoided, often being the cause of painful blisters and corns. Many peo ple, after bearing the torture of a pair of shoes that are too small, go to the other extreme, and wear those that are too large. When buying shoes, one must bear in mihd that 'kid- is very pliable and soon stretches, so that the shoes should not fit too comfortably at first, or else, after a week's wear, they will be far' too loose.

A SAD LITTLE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 February 1915
A SAD LITTLE STORY. One of the longest-delayed proposals on record is related in a French story of a shy young subaltern who was or dered away to the wars. Not daring to speak, he sent a nosegay of yellow rcses to the girl he loved, with a lit. tie note inside begging her, if she re turne4 his love, to wear one of the° flowet3 in her breast that night at the ball. She appeared without it, and he went away broken-hearted. Years afterwards, when he was a lame old General, he again met his old love, now a white-haired widow. One day, his old sweetheart gently asked him why he had never married. "Madam," he answered somewhat sternly, "you ought to know best. It you had not refused to answer that note in the bouquet of yellow roses I might have been a happier man." "The note in the bouquet,- she .re peated, growing pale. She opened an old cabinet and took out from a drawer a shrivelled bou quet of what had been yellow roses:, amongst whose leafless stalks lurked a scrap of paper, yellow ...
ARE YOU A HUSBAND-HELPER? [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 February 1915
ARE YOU A HUSBAND-HELPER? The wise husband will tell ever y thing to his wife, if she be a sensil le woman. To such confidence most s lc cessful men owe their prosperity. ro the hints and suggestions given by good wives often are due the triumphs which the public attribute solely to-the man. A woman 's instincts are very alert, and she is swift to see break ers, rocks, or shoals. Many a man, has lived to regret that he did not heed his wife's warning. So, too, when a wife tells her hues band to beware of such and such a person, he will be a fool if he does aot pay attention to her admonition. - Thus far we have spoken of the, sensible wife, but there are other kin 1n to whom it would not be safe to en trust either great or little secrets. Every woman has it in her own choice whether she will be her hus band's - helpers or his greatest hin drance. The pity of it is that so many women fail to realise this.
GRAVE AND GAY. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 27 February 1915
GRAVE AND GAY. What becomes less ana less tired the more it works?-A carriage-wheeL The warders of a gaol are gaolers, but those of a prison are not prison ers. Why s a pretty girl like a hinge? Because she is something to adore (a door). When. the cow jumped over the moon, did she leave the milky way behind her? "Fine feathers do not make fine birds," remarked a .man; "but they make Pe fortunes for milliners!" Wisdom is not to. be obtained by simply wishing for it; it is the result of profound study and wide experi ence. He: But, really, are you going to marry me, or are you going to make a fool of me? She: Both, my dear boy. "Shakespeare had more than gen lus," declared a conceited actor-"it was prescience.

Next, Please. An employer, having occasion to consult a detective regarding one of his clerks who had absconded, was asked to describe the missing man.

It's folly to think that paint is an expense. Painting is a property im- provement which statistics prove on the average house under average conditions increases its value 25 0/o to 50%/o. Understand, paint is not only for decorative purposes. It's a preservative that prolongs the life of the building and forestalls depre ciation. Consider paint as an in vestment just as you buy seed as an investment. And be just as par ticular in your paint selections as you are in selecting seed.
SOLDIERS' LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 6 March 1915
SOLDIERS' LETTERS. SNotes from Bombardier Webb Ci'ook, of Bacchus : Marsh, First Expeditionary Force: Mena, Egypt, Jan. 26.-Just heard .that we are going to Ismaila, on the Canal, to help steady up the Turks. We won't be sorry, for it is fairly monotonous here, although we get into Cairo pretty often. *The 9th Battery is wonderful. In a competi tion last week it only took them 23 'seconds to come into action, and, blow the target to pieces. The next closest time was 30secs., and it took most four or five shots to find the taiget, but the 9th found it in one. They are the Tasmanians, and have always had the record for Austra lia. The fellows thought it a great joke to-day. I lent a chap my horse, which I have taught to lay down anywhere, and as the chap was de tailing battery drill, the horse quietly laid down, and frightened six months' growth out of him I This is a "bonzer" climate- just comfortably warm in the daytime, and fairly cold at night. The natives are what I can't stand, ...
BURR-R-R-R-S! To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 6 March 1915
BURR-R-R-R-S ! To the Editor of the Express. .Sir,-At a recent meeting the Bacchus Marsh Shire Council. de cided to give the Bathurst burrs a good "hurry-skurry." I have been wondering when it is to begin. In almost every paddock there is a crop of burrs; and, unless action is taken very soon, they will have seeded, thus spreading the pest further. At least one Thistle Inspector for each Riding should be appointed temporarily, to .make landowners destroy all pests. Will the Council lors for the Riding take a walk along the road to Darley, or down the road past the State school, and in spect the burrs and boxthorn. It is a disgrace, and needs attention. Can we rely on the Council to act NOW ?-Yours, &c., ANTI-PEST. Bacchus Marsh, 2/3/15. -The. annual St. Patrick's Day Sports will be held on Saturday, March 20th, on the Showgrounds, Bacchus Marsh.
