MRS. FLORA ANNIE STEEL. GLORIES IN HER YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 March 1915
MRS. FLORA ANNIE STEEL. GLORIES IK HER YEARS. Mrs. Flora Annie Steel glories in her years. She is one of the rare excep tions among the distinguished women of the day who give their age in books of reference. The Anglo-Indian nove list is sixty-eight, and would scorn to be considered a day younger. Fresh, active and energetic in appearance, she leads a life of widely varying interests, and as unlike that of the popular idea of the literary woman as can well be imagined. When at home in her house of Talgarth Hall, amongst the Welsh ?hills, she is housekeeper, estate agent, farmer, gardener, stock breeder, and a bit of everything else by turns. From early morning until late at night she is at work in a thousand and one ways Her husband and daughter may desire t to co-operate, but it is not easy to help a woman of Mrs. Steel's temperament. She abounds in hospitality; her house is rarely without staying guests, and all the neighbourhood finds its way into Mrs. Steel's drawing room. She ...

THE LETTER "E." [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 March 1915
THE LETTER "E." Someone has advanced the opinion that tho letter "e" is the most unfor tunate letter in the English alphabet, because it is always out of cash and ever in debt, never out of danger, and in hell all the time. For some reason, ho overlooked the fortunates of the let ter, so we call his attention that "e" is never in war and always in peace. It is the beginning of existence, the commencement of ease, and the end of trouble. Without it there would be meat, no life, and no heaven. It is tho centre of honesty, makes love per fect, and without it there could be no editors, devils, nor news.-Exchange. In reference to the letter "a" an old rhyme runs: The beginning of eternity, The end of time and space, The beginning of every end, And the end of every place.

| THE REMNANTS WERE THERE. Cardinal Gibbons was 'recently the guest of a layman friend in Baltimore. In the home is a bbtler of Mrs Parti gonian proclivities, and on the church dignitaries' former informal visits to tfte home, the mistress had been under the necessity of reminding the obtuse servant that the .distinguished guest was to be addressed always as "Your Eminence." I On the pi'esnt occassion, when the Cardinal rang the bell, the man of im I passive countenance answered, receiv I ing the card, and turning, announced ' to the' hostess: "Please mum, yoxiv remnants has'came.",
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 March 1915
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Save all the stale bread, grade it, and keep in glass jar ivith lid. This makes an excellent covering for fried veal, fried liver, croquettes, and oysters. . "When trying out fat cut a potato in the thinnest slices possible and drop''in while hot. This prevents a smutty look and'makes the fat clean and sweet. The best way to clean hair-brushes is with spirits of ammonia and warm water. Take a tablespoouful of ammo nia to one part of water; shake well and dry in the air, but not in the sun.

WEAPONS OF ANCIENT DAYS. USED IN FRENCH FIGHTING TO-DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 March 1915
WEAPONS OF ANCIENT DAYS. USED IN FBJSNCH FIGHTING TO-DAY. France is showing courage and cour tesy in the treatment of correspond ents. Distinguished officers have been appointed to conduct parties of cor respondents to places of interest along the front, where an officer of the ae tivo army explains the situation and relates incidents of the actual lighting. We visited Ypres, Eeninghe, and I'ervvse under this arrangement, and the officer who was showing us about at Fumes gave an interesting talk re garding the extent of the hand-to-hand lighting in the trenches, leading back, to the weapons and methods of ancient days. '' Already we are using old mortars, fat stumpy, little weapons," he said, '' which can throw a heavy charge of explosive with certainty for half a mile and drop half a hundredweight of meli nite in the enemy's trenches. Our men too are becoming experts in the use of hand grenades. They are real grena diers again, as well as bombadiers. If the trenches are near enough...
THE "CONTEMPTIBLE" ARMY. CANDID GERMAN VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 March 1915
THE "CONTEMPTIBLE" ARMY. CANDID GERMAN VIEW. A warning agaiiist' under-estimation of the British troops, such as has been customary with a certain section of the German press, is sent home by a woll kuown Berlin newspaper man, who is .serving as first lieutenant with a regi mont facing the British forces near Ypres. His regiment, he writes, marched out with the idea that the '-British had legs only to run with-ahd tHat.real fighting spirit or skill in arms)was lacking in them. A few hours' contact with the British, however, showed that they were no easy enemy. . "The English infantry Which op posed us there in the vicinity of Ypres ,niust be characterised as troops of the lirst quality," he writes. "From the start it was noteworthy with what high energy tho British troops defended their positions against our attacks. After being driven out they kept try ing again and again, particularly by night attacks, to regain the lost ground. They were supported most effectively by their field ...
THE ART OF NURSING. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 March 1915
THE ART OF NURSING. There are few positions open to women where the compensation is more ! liberal than in that of the trained nurse, but it is only among well-to-do people where the two guineas per week salary can be given for such a pur pose. Under ordinary circumstances, the invalid must get along in the best possible way, and unquestionably has a good deal to put up with from awk ward hands and blundering heads. A great deal is said about teaching children to be useful, and very much lias been accomplished in this direction, but, as far as we know, thero has never yet been a juvenile training school for nurses, at least not outside of the home circle and the personal overlooking of the head of the house. One woman, who looks a long way ahead, and who generally finds that it is much easier to work with brains than with hands, has for years kept up a little training school for nurses among her own children with dollies for patients. This novel business came about in'this way: Bets...

CAMEO OF THE WAR. AECHAMBAULT, GUN POINTER. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 12 March 1915
CAMEO OF THE WAR. AECRAMBAULT, GUN POINTER. Vincent Archambault, gun pointer of the first gun of tlie battery of the army corps, came from the eastern fron tier, near Sedan, and, like the people of his country, ho was a tall man, strong and calm and slow, putting a certain power and reflection iu every step that he took. The fortunes of mobilisation had placed him in a battery whero there i was no one who came from his neigh-, i bourhood, and so his comrades knew ! little about him, and they learned little | from the conversation of the big, silent j man. But some drovers and vendors of forage and grain whom the men of ! the battery met in the market places of j the towns through which they marched | recognised Vincent and told his com 1 rades that he was a prosperous man, I that he had begun early to save and J that he had bought the fourth part of a big farm on the edge of the Gham | pagne, where the ground begins to rise I to the wooded foothills of Argonne. And without being tol...

AT BUSTARD CAMP. (Special Cores.p'jnderit of tho "Man chester Guardian.") At Lark's Hill, a bare knoll on Sal isbury Plain, half-way between Ames bury and Bustard Camp, the vljodc-n winter quarters of the Canadians are J;early ready. The Canadians are eagerly looking f.;r the day when they can leave their wet and chilly tents for those stout .sheds, which resemble rows of derelict railway carriages. Oil such a day as this, when a frost edged wind ;s scything over the plain, you can sympathise. The men from the West don't mind Ionliness, although they say that Sfllisburj-- Plain beats Calgary way f,,r that,. and at Lark's Hill they will be a bit nearer such company as the thatched village of Amesbury can ofi'tT.

NO ONE KNOWS The weight of another's burden. Many a one brought to light. You know if you hare a burden, to bear. You know where you are taxed to bear it. You know liow -much trouble it gives you. But do you know how to shake it off? The back bears more burdens than all the human organism. And it objects to it, sometimes em phatically. It aches, it pains, is weak and lame. It's your fault if you don't come to the rescue. Perhaps you don't know how. We could tell you, but you might doubt us. We will let this man do it, then 'tis easier proven. Mr. C. Milligan, Reid-crescent, Won thaggi, says:-"About three years ago I had the misfortune to rick my back, and for months afterwards I suffered agony from backache. I believe, had I not taken Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, which were recommended to me by a friend, I would still be suffering. These pills gave me relief very quickly, and by the time I had finished four bottles I was cured, and I have been free from ^backache ever since. Before...
