INFLUENCED BY CLOTHES. [Newspaper Article] — Rosedale Courier — 8 January 1914
INFLUENCED BY CL0THE8. A shrewd observer of the world once observed tlint one of the greatest consolations in life was the conscious ness or being well-dressed And it is certainly the fact, that clothes have an influence on the mind far deeper than many people suspect.

So great was the impression crcated by her new-found grace and dignity, and so strong the effect upon her mind, that her manners underwent a complete change, and from a brusque, mannish young woman .she developed Into a Srande dame.

He put a coH'of rope in my hands and: told me..to reeve the signal-hal yards in the mizzen truck. We carried extra long royal poles or bare exten sions of masts above the highest point of rigging. Ours were 16 feet long, and the top was not much bigger than a man's wrist. They were crowned with flat pieces of wood the Bize of a cheese-plate, on one side of which was the sheave for signal-halyards.
