SANG TO HER DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Gordon, Egerton and Ballan Advertiser — 2 January 1914

SANG TO HER DEATH. Maria Felicita Malibran, the famous mezzo-soprano, daughter of the cele brated Spanish singer, Manuel Garcia, did not die, as is generally thought, from inflammation of the throat; her death, at the early age of twenty-eight, was much more pathetic and drama tic. Although very ill, and advised to take a rest cure, she travelled to Manchester to fulfil a contract. She was engaged to siug the celebrated duet from Mercadanto's "Andronico," with Mme. Caradori as her partner, and at the close of the performance the public rose at her and demanded more. La Malibran "was pale and exhaust ed, and made appealing gestures to the audience; but the clamor and tu mult went on unceasingly. So, turning to Sir George Stuart, who conducted the orchestra, she remarked: "It I have to sing this once more, it will be my death!" In that case," said Sir George, "you had better retire, and 1 will apologise to the audience." But she rallied at these words, and replied —"No, 1 will sing, a...

DON'T NAG. 4f you wish to help the world a little • in your humble way, Don't nag! Your wife, if you're a husband, doubt less has her little faults, but— say— Don't nag;! You may be too busy toiling for your litle bit of crust To be able to lift others who are lying in the dust. But you still can help in making the world brighter, if you just Don't nag. If you wish to give him courage who has chosen you for life, Don't nag. If you wish to be his helper—and he'll need help in the strife — Don't nag. He may have a few shortcomings— husbands generally do— And he may sometimes sit beaten when he should have triumphed, too. But he'll rise with newer courage and new strength if only you Don't nag.
