LEARN BEFORE YOU MARRY. "Oil. anyone can keep house. I shall soon pick it up after, I'm married!" said the engnged girl scornfully. - And poiiiaps it's true that one can I —after a fashion; But a woman must have brains to keep house well, to plan out the meals so that they may be nourishing and still economical, to keep the house fresh-looking, and In spic-nnd-span condition. , So don't imagine that it Is beneath your dignity to learn to keep house in your maiden days. When a husband works hard all day to earn enough money to keep things going. It must be very trying for him io'lind that his wife fritters it away, getting only half its value, simply be rntisn she would not take the trouble before marriage to learn how to be a good and economical manager.

WOMAN—LOVELY WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Daylesford Advocate, Yandoit, Glenlyon and Eganstown Chronicle — 31 January 1914

WOMAN—LOVELY WOMAN. The whisper of a heautitul woman can be hoard farther than , the loudest call of duty. It is a woman's way. Tliey always love color better than form, rhetoric better than logic, priestcraft better than philosophy, and flourishes better than ilgures. Nature maltes fools, women make coxcombs. Women are apt .to sec chiefly the defects of a man of talent and the merits of a fool., ' Woman is mojfe .constant in hatred than .in love. '' Woman is an idol that man wor ships before he throws it down. The highest marlt of esteem a ,/o man can give a man is to ask his friendship, anil the most signal proof of her indifference is to offer him hers. A. woman is soldo™ tenderer to a man than immediately after shq hat received him. " Friendships of women are the cush ions wherein they stick their pius.
