The Girl no Man Wants. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 8 May 1909
The Girl no Man Wants. The kind of girl who expects her path to be strewn with bouquets, chocolates, theatre tickets,' and treats generally, will find her popularity short- ' lived no matter how charming she may be. The average young man's pocket cannot stand the strain long, and lie will turn to some other girl, less attractive, perhaps, but who will be con tent with the attentions he can afford to bestow on her. It is a girl's place to see that the expenses a young man incures for her 'pleasure shall not exceed what he can easily afford.
Treat Him to Indifference. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 8 May 1909
Treat Him to Indifference. It takes some girls a long time to learn that a man doesn't like to be pursued and overwhelmed with attention; It is all very well to assume that his vani ty is flattered by this assiduous devotion. No doubt it is. But vanity is not the only nor the highest quality ot a man s nature. Sooner or later the real stuff that is in him will assert itself. He will sicken of the diet of adulation and turn away from the foolish feminine who administers it, to pursue some indifferent and, therefore, -doubly at tractive lady who has tlie good sense to know how to make herself' scarce. A woman dislikes a man who flatters too much almost as much as a man who doesn't flatter at all.
The Gushing Girl. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 8 May 1909
The Gushing Girl. 'Girls', do not gush ! There is nothing more objectionable, sillier, and calculated to get so on the nerves of people, than the company of a girl who is for ever sounding: the praises of herself and of her particular acquaintances. Where is she to be met with ? Wlw, in every phase of life, from the highest to the lowliest in station. The gushing girl is a nuisance to everyone ; a bore and unceas ing source of annoyance to her friends, yet she calmly plods on her way utterly oblivious of the fact ; but supreme^ con scious and content that she is the life and soul of each and every assembly she finds herself in. Everything she possesses, down to the merest trifle, is spoken of and described in the most glowing and eulogistic terms — she is all excitement, all rhapsody. Her friends are described, whether of the gent ler sex or not, as the sweetest, dearest, Kairv Dku, KAiyr.s, IyKUKa.

Good Manners. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 8 May 1909
Good Manners. Unselfishness is the secret of good manners, and those- who devote their lives to the service of humanity have no need to trouble about their politeness. Natural politeness emanates from a kindly heart. Women must themselves set the example oi courtesy to each other it they wish, men to treat them courteously. The specious arguments, ' l It is heathful, ' ' ' Doctors orders, ' ' and kindred excuses employed by followers of fads to justify reprehensible habits and manners are too transparent to have any weight with sensible people. The polish that is acquired from educa tion is but a veneer, and cannot well stand the wear and tear of life. No amount of education im courtesy, either at home or at school, will enable the average person to bear patiently an unjust criticism or a disagreeable remark. Only the patience of a kindly spirit can do that.
SPRINGWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 8 May 1909
1 ? 5PRINGWOOD. ? I [From our Own Coriucspon^knt]. The bicycle racs on Saturday last' resulted in a win for J. Coyle, with H. Webb second. The circus which' performed here on Saturday night brought all Springwood out, and the man who ran the show reaped a harvest ot com. He was so well pleased that he. announced to the people at the end of the performance that the tent on the next block was a missionary tent, and that' a mission would be held next night: In last week's issue, my report stated.; that jL3 14s was handed over to the treas-. urer of the Dreadnought Fund from the; Rev. Woolnough'.s lecture. The amount should have been £2 14s. Alsothat.it was-, the Golden Fleece football team that was to play Springwood but as they did not 'play it did not matter much.. When the match, takes place I will give the correct title.. ? A boys' team from Emu played here on Saturday last.

A Dinner in Japan. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 8 May 1909
A Dinner in Japan. The usual dinner hours of the Japanese are four, six and seven. When the guests are seated on the mats, two, and sometimes three, small, low, lacquered tables are brought to each. On that immediately in front of him the guest finds seven little bowls, with, near his left hand, rice ; near his right hand, fermented bean soup ; the others containing 'roast' fish, roast fowl, boiled meat, raw fish in vinegar, and a stew of vege ables,

Letters to the Editor. [We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by our contributors.] TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 8 May 1909
Letters to the Editor. LWe do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by our contributors. I , TO THH EDITOR. Sir, — Will you kindly allow me to call your attention to the bad state of the ap proach to the post-office at Wentworth Falls. It is my duty to call very often about 7.45 p.m. for stamps and other transactions. There is no proper path to the post-office, and one has to stumble in the dark over the gutter. In addition, owing to heavy rams the soil has been washed from, the drainage pipes, and causing danger of slipping if one steps on them. I have had several severe falls, and not being so j'oung as I once was have fears of a serious accident. Could not the Shire Council put a man, on the road opposite the post-office. The expense would be very little, and the improvement would be greatly appreciated by all who have to call on business after dark. Trusting you will use your influence in the ? matter.— Yours, etc., H. SCHMITZ.

J. F. S. Russell. There was a good audience, which no doubt would have been larger had not the evening been so chilly. The programme opened with a march, ' ' Mount Atlas, ' '. which was well rendered by the orchestra. The well-known glee, 'Hail, Smiling Morn,!* was then sung and much appreciated, the ?voices being well balanced and the expression good.

Why Women Steal. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 8 May 1909
Why Women Steal. Why do women shoplift ? Shoplifting, of course, is the name given by the police to that specialised form of theft which is practised more particularly at the great sales. It is a species of crime which seems to be ineradicable, and it is most frequently a feminins accomplishment. But it is not necessarily confined to the fairer sex. Bouncers ' ' is the name given in theives' slang to the coupie — man and woman -. who haunt shops, the man screening his companion as she ' palms ' or secretly makes away into voluminous pockets the, purlioned articles she ' lifts ' from the counter. Silkworms ' ' is another piece of theives' jargon, the term applying to women who rob the jewellers from whom they make small purchases. 'Placers' is still another title for women who 'work' rather more elaborately by deftly substi tuting for the trinkets' they steal facsimiles in brass and paste. . Apart from these regulars there remain the class who steal under sudden tempta tion, an equal...

Thompson narrowly escaped being run over by a motor car on Sunday last while out for a walk... A dog, which was accompanying him, however, did not manage to get clear and was killed. As this is not the first narrow' escape that has occurred lately, perhaps .when someone is killed means will be taken to prevent the excessive speed being indulged in by motor ists just outside the town liniits. . Professor David, Mrs. David,. and a party of officers and men from the Nimrod visited Wentworth Falls on Wednesday, and viewed all the principal sights, being driven thereto by the local traps, On leaving the station for their, home hearty cheers were given for the Professor, Mrs. David, and party by the residents..

The Secret of Charm. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 8 May 1909
The Secret of Charm. Those who would be charming must take the trouble to be thoughtful of others. Don't be so absorbed in .your own interests that you cannot enter into the interests of other people. You will look people in the face when you are talking, and give your attention to what they are saying. One thing to avoid, if you would be charming, is the tendency to talk about grievances. A girl who fancies herself a martyr, and who claims that no one under stands her or her moods, is not on the road towards the possession of charm. A girl who is morbid, self-centred, egotistical, can never be charming. She should make every effort to overcome these characteristics, or she will become tiresome to her friends and the prey of discontentment. Try to live in the ' sunshine of cheerfulness and the breeze of larger interests' if you would be charming. Say pleasant things and praise others whenever you can do it with sin cerity.
