THE GRUNT AS A MEDICINE CHEST. [Newspaper Article] — Tamworth Observer and Northern Advertiser — 1 July 1910
THE GRUET AS A MEDICINE CHEST. It is not realised ns well as it might be that a well-filled cruet is a small medfeine chest. Salt and water is a splendid tonic for weak or tired eyes, and a gargle of salt and water will cure a relaxed throat. Tho medicinal properties of mustard aro well known, nnd a nulstard foot-bath is a favorite way of. curing n_cold. A mustard plaster is, however, preferable to tho old mustard poultice, which can bo used 111 case of emergency. Mustard nnd water is nn emetic. Vinegar comes next. It is an astringent, and is useful in~nllaying a swelling caused by a fall, and will, when greatly diluted with water, fornf a soothing lotion for eye-strain and nervous headache, and is a medicine closo to hand should.soda, potash, or ammonia ever be taken in an overdose. Olive oil reveals its usefulness daily. An overworked society woman went to a cele brated physician recently and asked him how she could get rid of .her haggard, old look. 'By the use of olive oil,' sai...
THE MISTAKEN TOAD. [Newspaper Article] — Tamworth Observer and Northern Advertiser — 1 July 1910
THE MISTAKEN TOAI)'.' A small toad 'woke, one morn in Spring, Brushed back his liair and tried to sing. He felt the world was all his own, And swelled and swelled in flesh and boue. Though his conceit was purely vain The fault arose from his small brain. AY hi eh only grasped part of tho plan, By which is ruled Immortal Man. It chanced a band played loud that day ; A coach and four dashed 011 its way; A donkey brayed ; a train rushed by ; A cannon boomed; a hound gavo cry; The thunder rolled ; the lightning flashed ; The sun withdrew from' view, abashed. Tho toad sprang up and gave a shout: 'Oh, what a time! 'cause I've come out!'
THE HOME COLUMN. CHAT AND INFORMATION. ARE MANNERS OUT OF DATE? [Newspaper Article] — Tamworth Observer and Northern Advertiser — 1 July 1910
THE HOME COLUMN. CHAT AND. INFORMATION. (By 'Jcuneviv.') ARE MANNERS OUT OF DATE? It is a common saying that manners, 111 the old-fashioned sense, are out of date. Courtesy is a 'back number,' a fit accom paniment. for fancy- dress, 'in keeping with powder and patches. . Many people think themselves too busy to take time for good manners, and women, unfortunately, are tho worst offenders. ' Mothers do not toacli their sons to bo gen tle and courteous with all women, at homu a- well as abroad, nnd girls seem to think biiuc men win iiko i/iiuni oetier 11 uioy are .hail-follow-well-met with them, to the sacri fice of old-world deference. Tho man who has been brought, up among women who neither expect courtesy nor re sent the absence of it will soon drop tho sur face politeness which he felt obliged to re sume during his courtship. Ho will back slide into ' the casual, unintentionally rude behaviour which marked his conduct at home. He will monopolise the most comfortable chair ; he wil...
DON'T RUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Tamworth Observer and Northern Advertiser — 1 July 1910
DON'T RUSH. It is foolish in tho extreme for a newly married couple to begin life at a pace which they cannot maintain, spending what money they have in useless' extravagences which bring 110 solid return. Even when there is a fund in reserve it is unwise to draw heavi ly upon it or to abstain from adding to it at the outsot of matrimony. It is always easy to pass from comfort to luxury. When luxury must be relinquished the force of contrast makes tho comfort of yesterday the hardship of to-day. , Those who aro contont to begin lifo . ivoll within their mfeans will be spared the pain ful experience of being unable to pay their way. Bettor a hundred times to begin with a three-room flat and end with a nice house, than to reverse this order of things.
