PILLOW PHILOSOPHY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910
, PILlOW PHILOSOPHY. Do not work the brain for six hours before you go to bed. Business women are apt to violate this rule. They tnink they must give daylight to their employers, and then spend their even ing on memoranda and calculations about their own personal affairs. All this is wrong. You may get out of bed as early as you please and' work your brain then. But you are safest if after five in the afternoon you give it no hard work at all. Do not work this pot* old brain, which has stood by you so loyally, from the time you get out of bed in the morning until late at night. Re member what your bed is for, and why you are in it. You are there to sleep; not to add up figures in your head'; not to lay plans for to-morrow. If you have been working the poor old brain too late, or if you have been eating heartily just before undressing, and. if your head burns so that it al most sets the pillow on fire, crawl out of bed and sponge your head with cold water. If this fails, bathe your f...

Franki, general manager, made a strong plea for building torpedo des troyers by private enterprise, He ? said that the rierht wav in wTiiV.Ti to have dealt with the putting to gether of the parts of the vessels would have been to have given the contract to the firm which would have undertaken to do the work in Australia. In under taking to put destroyers together at Fitzroy Dock the State Govern ment was practically doing the work for nothing, by including no other charges in its estimate than those of actual construction. No private enterprise would take up such a position, as before the prime cost of the work could be reached, at least 20 per cent, must be added. The Governmeot paid no rent, no taxes, no interest on the money, cost of manage ment, Harbor Trust fees or other charges. It was thus V plear vtha...

Just about that time I read your poems, 'Betsy and I are Out,' and 'How Betsy and I made TJp.' I was struck hard by the poems, and I took them to my wife and read them to her. She cried, and — well, we've been together ever since, and there'll never be a bill for you in this house, Mr. Carleton.'

No Need for Alarm. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910
No N.eed for Alarm. A traveller, many years ago, who was making a railway journey across America -was reluctant to go to sleep lest he should miss the announcement of arrival at a certain station. The guard, however, begged of him to take his sleep in comfort, and assured him, that nothing should prevent his being called at the proper time. With many expressions of misgiving and many cautions to the eriiard not to fail him the anxious passenger at length went to sleep. And the guard, after all, forgot to call him, and did not think of it until the train had travelled a considerable distance too far. But trains were not frequent in those days, and the rules of the service were not so rigid as now, so the conscience stricken guard succeeded in inducing the driver to back the carriages to the station in question. Presently they were back at the place desired, and the guard called the passenger. 'All right!' said , the passenger quietly, but without stirring. 'But we are now at the stat...
