Woman's Rights. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 3 April 1909
Woman's Rights. Oh, those boasted ' ' rights of women, ' ' Rights, of which so much is said ! Yet what are they ? Can you tell me, Wedded wife, or learned maid ? 'Tis a vexed and vexing question, Which I fain would understand, Often asked, but never answered, Oh, my sisters in the land ! In the days lang syne,. I'm thinking, Hearts were just as brave and true ; Woman's work was never wanting For a woman's hand to do. T'was our privilege and duty To .shed light on earth's dark- ways, Though we never talked or dreamed of 'Woman's rights' in those old days ! Oh ! lang syne, lang syne, my sisters. There were women standing by When the Saviour's feet went toiling Up the steps of Calvary. Women soothed the pain and anguish Of those hours, so dread and dim ; . Theirs the right, so sweet, yet awful, E'en to minister to Him ! Such sweet rights are ours for ever, : Oh, my sisters in the land ! Rights of ministry and mercy To be wrought with heart and hand. Think of that those 'rights' you tal...

The Home Page. By Myona. Fashions and Fancies. Autumn once more, Autumn with almost a touch of Winter in it too, and yet with Summer playing hide-and-seek as well.

In Memoriam. &nbsp; SMEDLEY. — In sad but loving memory of our dear father, John Smedley, who departed this life at Katoomba, March 31st, 1908.

The Care of Children. Instructive Lecture by Dr- Roth, the Government Medical' Inspector.

The lecture was I: illustrated, and proved intensely interest |; ing. Dr. Roth began by explaining the ! symptoms of various diseases, by which |: parents could be pretty sure what given ii symptoms signified, and what to do. He || dealt with the eyes first, being of para | mount importance, explaining what is |; meant by long sight and short sight, their |; causes and effects, and the clangers result i'; ing from neglect, but which can be easily i; and speedily corrected and cured if taken I; ? in time, otherwise a child's career may pro ;...
Love Much. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 10 April 1909
Love Much. Xvove much. Karth has enough of bitter in it. Cast sweets into its cup whene'er you can. No heart so hard but love at last may win it. Love is the grand primeval quest of man, All hate is foreign to the first great plan. Iyove much. Men's souls contract with cold sus picion. Shine on them with warm love and they expand. 'Tis love, not creeds, that from a lowr condition Leads mankind up to heights supreme and grand. Oh. that the world could see and understand !
Health Chats with Women. HOW TO KEEP WELL IN WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 10 April 1909
Health Chats with Women. HOW TO KEEP WELL IN WINTER. Common sense, combined with ordinary care, should suffice to keep anybody Jiealthy all through the winter. Half the illnesses at this season are clue to ignorance, and most of the remainder to carelessness, or to the opposite condition — over-coddling. Most business girls neglect their health shamefully. In winter^, especially they take no precautions against chill and damp ; they wear thin-soled shoes and flimsey * underclothing, and then grumble at their ill-luck when they are laid up for a couple of weeks with influenza. In most cases they 'have entirely them selves to blame. The most important pur chase the business girl who goes out to work every day of the week has to make at the beginning of winter is a good, thick soled pair of boots. Damp feet are respon sible for a great deal of illness in winter. Few girls realise that their health and looks depend very much upon their footgear. Thin stockings and paper soles mean pallo...
The Home Page. Fashions and Fancies. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 10 April 1909
The Home Page. By Myona. . Fashions and Fancies. The Season's Greetings.' I have found a colour note for you. The colour ? of the season is, I verily believe, going to be amethyst. There will be other colours worn as well , but there you have the key note. Talking of key-notes makes one wish that some people would keep to key notes and. not try playing variations all up and down the scale. Figure to yourselves the shock I got when I met the following walking down .King-street. Yes, really, that was the im pression I got, ? for the wearer was quite a ?secondary consideration. Hat, hat, hat, dominated all. It was built of green silk and lined with amethyst of just that shade of amethyst that should never go with green. On the left side a feather began and continued to meander round the back of the hat and fell in a shower of plumes over the wearers shoulder. Massed on the left side, where the feather was not, were roses quite ten inches in diameter, and the wearer of this erection — I...

The Woman He Loved. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 10 April 1909
The Woman He Loved. Hester Blake finished sweeping the snow from her front porch, and then looked dubiously at the huge drifts lying across the road and the slate sky above. ' They won't come,' she assured herself. ' Cousin Emma'll never venture out such a day as this. It'll be the first Christmas I have ever spent alone.' She sighed uncon sciously as she re-entered the silent house. ' Mrs. Blake lived in the outskirts of the village of Clifton Hall. She kept a boy to chop the wood, had a cow and chickens, and lived in a comfortable way on a tiny income. She was 'Aunt Hester ' to all the young people of her acquaintance, which was a considerable number, for she was popular, this worn woman of fifty. Her , sad, blue eyes and faded brown hair had a compelling charm, even under the rusty black hat which she wore in winter and Summer alike, and when she smiled, your Turn Fjckns, Kudkrai, Pass. \Szvain & Co. heart went out to her.

THE FESTIVE SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 10 April 1909
THE FESTIVE SEASON. Why Good Friday, the most sacred day of the year, should be looked forward to as a gala day by the greater portion of mankind baffles the imagination. The one day in all the year which should be devoted to contemplation, humiliation and prayer, is devoted to sport or to things ungodly. What must the judicious think of a people wno turn this most sacred or days into one of general enjoyment, liberty, and even un bridled licence. Year by \'ear the ' ' special attractions' provided to lure the people awa}' from the service of God is becoming greater and more varied until now it seems to be a settled condition of things that Church is the last place to be thought of. Need we look for a ' ' greater attrac tion' than the great Agricultural Exhibi tion in Sydney ? And do they not look to that day to furnish the biggest returns of the week ? Is it not a strange commentary that the Churches open for service but the congregatians ' have gone to the Show ?' It seems as thou...
