WOMAN'S WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 14 February 1914
WOMAN'S WORK. Tll&lt;T nvorngo husband seldom gets both himself anil his wlfo Into cov rect; perspective; he usually comes out a larger Hum life size; and' Ills wlfo n little smaller. It Is this that makes him believe that te Is an abao tule essential In any circumstance that concerns his wife. It Is the pro tective 'Instinct overdone. A sparate holiday Is a thing every wife dreams about, 'but she refrains from mentioning It, because—and tills Is the secret—she docs not think her husband has common-sense enough not to feel Injured at the pro posal. Many a husbnnd seems to think that she can, on occasion,' bo her own pilot. It rather twinges his dignity to think of her acting entire ly on her own Initiative. Even the | most affectionate husband Is often something of a despot in home life. He chokes her self-expression by thinking for her, planning for her, | anO deckling for her. Can you wbnder, then, tluit she should dream dreams of 'being en tirely herself lor a fortnight o...
WHISTLER'S WORK QUESTION OF SPEED. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 14 February 1914
WHISTLER'S WORK QUI3&TI0N OV SPEED. The common Impression among ar tists and art students undoubtedly is that Whistler.was a particularly rapid worker.; Mr Joseph Fennell, however, holds to the contrary, with tills advantage In argument, that, haying sat to Whistler for eight insufferably long hours, for trie purpose of a sketch portrait which has all the apparent characteristics of a "lightning" drawing, he speaks as one who kows—only too well! Pleasant "asides," of this piquant nature, wore the best features of Mr Penneli's de lightful lecture on "The Revival of Lithography" at the Victoria and Al bert. Musoum (says the "Westminster Gazette.") IJt was a real privilege to hear a skilled artist praising enthusiastically the high possibilities of lithography,and prophesying for it a great future. Show ing on the screen^ome beautiful modern examples of the art by Whistler and George Clausen, Mr Pennell spoke of the pains and patience with which Whist ler, in particular, worked...

It ceitainly does pay, and tho trade would readily ubsorb a much larger quantity of livralbs' wool 'were It available. \ As a' matter of fact, wool users are grumbling over the falling off in tiie volume of this description, which is no doubt attributed to the high shearing rates.
