SHIRTS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
SHX&TS. TIio onward march of civilisation lias Its obstacles. Shirt being made for man, and not man for shirts; every time a man gets a now shirt or one comes back from the laundry, the moral uplift neods the application of the safety brake and the emergency clutch to keep us from dropping into the collar again. Shirts are made of various kinds of ma terials. After the sewing is finished, they are left for a few hours in a strong mixture of glue and concrete. This fast ens the back to the bosom and sticks the sleeves together. Button-holes are then made in the neckband, and the hand is then steeped in cement so that the lnitton-holes cannot be opened. The bosom is then adorned with buttons. These buttons are sewed on with one weak thread, so that when you try to button the shirt, after having pried it apart with a paper-knife and strong language, the button;) will (ly away merrily.

A GOLDFIELDS SKETCH. THE LADY SPECULATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
I A GOLDFIELDS SKETCH. I __TIIE LADY SPECULATOR. (By VAL. JAMESON.) I had just remarked to Suo, "It's too dull for anything. I wish something would happen—a cyclone or an earth quake, anything to relievo tho mono tony." "Don't wish for sensation," said Suo. "It is tempting trouble. As a rule, when people express a wish of that kind it is followed by uuploasant experi ences." "Well," I grumbled, "nothing over happens here to enliven existence." It was raining, and ive did not hear the approach of the mail coach till Peter pulled up at the door. "'Lady passenger aboard," he bel lowed. "Hurrah!" I responded, running out to welcome the visitor, whoever she was. My brother Tom and Peter, the driver, had some difficulty in landing the passenger. She was a woman of generous proportions, and she was floppy and helpless after her long drivo. At last she was safely guided into our hospitable hands. Rivers and tribu taries flowed from her clothing. It was the worlc of a moment to reniovo her w...

A LADY'S THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 27 January 1912
A LADY'S THOUGHTS. A wail of angry protest has recently gone forth from tho London "Daily Ex press" against tho custom of promiscuous kisbing among women. ""Why," urges tho writer, plaintivoly, "should women kiss every timo they meet?" Twenty four trophies of fominino affection were grudgingly gathered in the courso of a morning call, and tho victim, smarting under tho tyranny of a senseless social custom, has risen in her wrath to demand its suppression. Putting aside for the mo ment tho morcly sentimental aspect of the question,,and regarding it from a hygienic standpoint, there is no doubt that wo men generally would gain by tho discon tinuance of a practice which has in it so much that is objectionable. Far more to bo condemned, however, even than this habit, is the one which so many grown people indulge, namely, tho indiscrimin ate kissing of children, moro particularly of babies and littlo children. Surely 011 behalf of theso long-suffering littlo ones, Homo protest is nccesBa...

They had soon giants and wrestlers, "strong men," the products of physical eulturo schools, but nover such an exhibition of sheer animal strength and quickness as tho new arrival displayed.
