MARRYING RECORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 1 January 1914
MARRYING RECORDS. Women, as a rule, are more given to the marrying habit than men, though no woman has roached the world's marrying record made by George 1.itzoff, the notorious bigam ist, whose marriages totalled over 100. In one weelo he went through eight ceremonies. Almost as strange a case was that of a Russian woman condemned to Siberia not long ago. She had been married to twenty husbands and had treated them all alike, running away from each in turn and taking all their portable property with her. She was a most attractive woman, and highly educated. A woman named Schmeyer, of eonnsylvania, was sent to prison not long ago for bigamy. Though she was only twenty-seven years old, she had married twelve men in ten years. Her only comment in court was that she hlued them all. A Boer woman named ,De Beers, whose sixth husband died recently, is the proud mother and stepmother of forty-nine children, while 1her grand children number 270. Four of her six husbands were widowers, all w...
ORIGIN OF THE HONEYMOON AND OTHER MARRIAGE CUSTOMS [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 1 January 1914
ORIGIN OF THE HONEYMOON AND OTHER MARRIAGE CUSTOMS One is somnetites tempted to won der why newly-married people think it necessary almost immediately after the wedding to run away from all their friends and acquaintances. When ihe delights of foreign travel are in prospect, this course of conduct is not surprising, but 'why in the name of commtttoti-sneas-s so se are inclined to ask-should the bridal pair accept. as tley often do, the loan of a friend's house, where, cut off from social and domestic duties, they no doubt exper leice the woes of utter boredom, for even billing and cooing ttust occasion ally pall? Many there are who have cautiously allowed that the honey .muoomi spent under the most favorable condillonts hls its drawbacks. Yet, comuimton-sense tiotwitihstiaidiing, It is nIt itsti tutiont that -ill probably last till the ent of time. We are disposed to question why tSie cutstomt ever ex isted, and the reasoit is not far to seek if we olily know where to setrchi for Ti...
WOMEN'S WORLD. THE VALUE OF ORDERLINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 1 January 1914
WOMEN'S: WORLD. THE VALUE OF ORDERLINESS. Orderliness always pays in the long run. .One cannot always keep the house outwardly straight if it is to be used as most people use their homes. But there is a truer orderli ness that every good housewife loves and should attain. Mfost careless housowives know the feeling of dis may when a change in temperature calls for a change in raiment, or when circumstances suddenly demand some little-used article. Then it is that untidy storerooms and boxes empha sise the beauty of having a place for things and overything where it be longs. The frst step is in providing the "places." How many pantries are dif ficult to care for and unpleasant in appearance because they are cluttered vitlh accumulations of empty fruit jars! Somewhere near the kitchen in the storeroom or even in the wood shed ii there is no other available I-lace--put up a cupboard purposely to receive these jars as they are mDp tied. A box, fitted with a door and rough shelves, will a...
NATURE'S LAWS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 1 January 1914
NATURE'S LAWS. Nature is a gcnerous mother, but anl ugly step-mother if one attemits to cross her purpose. The great mistakte of many farmers is inr. trying to be penny-savlng, in buying cheap seed, working with tools unfit for the pur pose reiluired of them, and mating their snimals with inferior sires, ngainst nature s laws. 'There is but one result. Nature goes on with her business and the breeder comes to grief and is ready to sell out. tIc simily worked at crosspurposeSi with itature. She does not advertise her inttnttlons, nor cry them through the streets, yet she speaks in no uncer taiu latagutge to the llstening ear. If the breeder works in unison with ina ture's laws, he is all-powerful and his success sure.

WHAT THE HORSE THINKS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 1 January 1914
WHAT THE HORSE THINKS. Give a horse a chance. There is time cnough after that to make him go. A horse naturally becomes more or less like its driver. .)ost balky horses are made so by their drivers. Never whip a horse because you are angry. A gooti teamster gains the conf dence of his teanh. A Itorse should be mattde to fear the witip rather than feel it. Teach a team to pull a light ,aad right attd they wIll pull a heavy loead right. Never trait a teatm on a heavy load. Never scoltd a team for breaking an eetter. Lond light at tirst and heavier after wards. Never 1)ull a Leamn wvhiei they are out of breath. Do not allow a team to stop at wvill, but stop thiemn soon afterwards. Sitort stops antd ofteit is a good rule for resting horses. A horse that vill stop wvhen obe is told to vwill seldom u run asay. It is all right for your horse to have speed if you never find it out. Move a little yoursed to get started, instead of asking tour teamo to make utp lost time.

HUMUS. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 1 January 1914
HUMUS. Alim at keeping up your humus sup lIly (vegetable matter), as this is the first thing a plant looks for. It must be in the soil to enable the three es sentials to plant. life---ptiosphoric acid, potash andi nitrogen-to thoroughly perform their functions. Where the hluntut is absent the three very neces sary essentials named would be of ab solutely no value dturing a hot, dry spell. Even in a favorable season, wlitl inoisture forthcomning, the relief wotilti ottly be tetlportry. and a dry pilch vill pull it up at otice. Not so whttere I he huttnus is incorporated in the soil, for, apart from its functions as moistture conserver-which alone is invaluable to plant life-it sets up certaiti bacterial action wehlch makes more available any plant food that is in ihe soil, in an insoluble form, and the soil is better able, where this vegetable tisatter is in abundance, to restsoidti to aniy mpplicatio n of commer cial fertilisers.

AN EDUCATION TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 1 January 1914
AN EDUCATION TEST. A professor once told his pupils that he should consider them educated in the best sense of the word when they could say "Yes" to every one of the questions that he should put to then. Here are the questions: Has education given you sympathy with all good causes and made you espouse them? Has it made you public spirited? Has it made you a brother to the weak? Have you learned howf to make 'riends and keep them? Do you know what It is to be a friend yourself? Can you look an honest man or a pure woman in the eye? Do you see anything to love in a little child? Will a lonely dog follow you in the street? Can you he high-minded and happy in the meaner drudgeries of life? Do you think washing dishes and hoeing turnips just as compatible with high thinking as piano playing or golf? Are you good for anything to your self? Can you be happy alone? you look out on the wo. anything else except £ q.
