Something in a Name. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

Something in a Name. 'Dear,' said a henpecked husband timidly, 'I wish you wouldn't call me 'Leo.' ' 'Why not?' demanded- his wife ex plosively. ' 'Leo' is your name.' 'I know, my dear; but it makes my friends laugh when you call me that. I was thinking you might call me 'Job,' just for a pet name!' Lawyer: What is your occupation? Witness: I'm a piano finisher. Lawyer: Be a little more definite. Do you polish them or move them? Men of business may organise large industries, and may disappear out of human remembrance, unless they have the wisdom to do something substantial for posterity with the means which they accumulate.

HEALTH AND THE SKIPPING-ROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 12 March 1910

HEALTH AND tHE SKIPPING ROPE. One of the surest ways of keeping young in figure is to practise health exercises and simple gymnastics, and thus prevent the muscles of the body from becoming stiff. The skipping-rope offers a simple means of keeping the body exercised in a healthy manner, and the old nur jya&Lime ot Shipping uas m it, therefore, more than the merit of giv ing momentary pleasure. Every girl, normally healthy, should be encour aged to use the skipping-rope. To a great extent we 'hold our health in our hands,' the .means of re taining it being largely 'due to judi cious exercise and simple diet. If exercises to keep the body nimble are practised daily and with intelli- . gence, health and beauty of figure are likely to accompany a woman into ripe ^ old age.

DRIED FRUIT. ITS VALUE AS A FOOD PRODUCT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 16 March 1910

DRIED FRUIT. ' ITS VALUE AS A FOOD PRODUCT. . Though the attention given to dried frait has largely increased of late, it is surprising the ignor-y ance that prevails regarding the value of this commodity as a food . product. In the first instance, it is very little understood by the one who should be most inter ested, the housewife ; if it were, the consumption would increase' - so fast that the producing sec tion of the country would be severely taxed . to supply th« demand.
