Can We Acquire Beauty? [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 April 1914
Can We scpirs Bsssti? This is a question that -will touch Dflie heart of every lady reader, and, though it may not be answered to 4BF6ry lady's entire satisfaction, there a&lt;j certainly a good deal of interest in knowing how other woman have done it or imagine they have. So fchat "Everylady's Journal" for April hita upon a live topic when it gives the views—and the portraits— «f a number of leading women on ** How to Be Beautiful." It seems ■Chat beauty of figure is the great consideration rather than the beauty that is skin-deep, and we learn from the ladies who have given their -views to " Everylady's Journal" that beauty of both body and face -will follow perfect health. This, therefore, is the object te aim ar, and the means suggested are many and various. Mios De Tore, the sprightly comedienne of " The Dan dies," for example, advocates danc ing, and saya that even the oft-con demned Tango has its advantages as a health-exerciser. Miss Murray, a Scottish champion, vote...

THE POULTRY YARD. SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 April 1914
SALINE REMEDIES FOR POULTRY One of the cheapest, simplest, yet most effective of remedies is that known as Kpsom salts, or magnesium sulphate. In the poultry-yard it is in valuable, Mid no poultry-keeper can afford to lie without it, for its use as a first aid in many instances will ward off serious troubles, and save the lives of many fowls. Liver disease, or diarrhoea, when the comb is purple in color and a lien loses her appetite, is often remedied 'by a dose of Epsom salts, given about two hours before or alter meals, the correct dose being half a Leaspoonl'ul per bird, dissolved in warm water, and poured down the throat. When Epsom salts are being given, it is advisable to reduce the food supply, in order that the medi cine may have the lull effect, upon the bird's organs. Closely allied to tlio above is Glauber's saits; or sodium sulphate.

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 April 1914
WIT AND WISDOM. ! Too many strings to a bow will never make a marriage tie. 1 A man need not fear competition when ho is in love with himself. People with small minds seldom have occasion, to change theui. A contented mind may be a feast, hut feasts are indigestible things. Many a man in the swim finds it difficult, to keep liis head above water. If you want, work well done, select a busy man—the other kind has no time. The folly of love is insecurity; peo ple are always either falling in or out of it. Although otherwise stingy, a man may be willing to lend a helping hand to himself. About two-thirds of the average man's laughter is inspired by his own. alleged wit. Love makes the world go round— perhaps that is why the young folk arc so giddy. The man that a woman says she does not care for is generally the one she cries over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that she is connected with the best families. Instinct is now described as that which tells a woman she is right, Vv ha...

Avoiding Comparisons. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 April 1914
Avoiding Comparisons. "What is your objection to ine as a son-in-law? My character is be yond reproach." "That's just it," said Mr. Olsport. "You don't suppose I want to go through the rest of my life having ample!" In an asylum two worthies named Sandie and Tain £ rmed a plan to make their escape. Sandie says to I Tam:— "Bend doon and I'll get on your baolc | and get on the tap a' Uie wall and haul ■ you up." Sandie gets on the top of tlie wall and slides down the other side, say | ins: "Tam, I think you'll '"be better to stay anither fortnicht, for you're no near sane yet." A clever lawyer succeeded in win j ning his client's case and getting the J better of a rather bumptious barris ter.

I JAPAN'S VOLCANOES A TROUIJL.KD LAND. (By li. Urutc .Mitrord, F.U.G.S., In "The Daily Telegraph.") With (.lmr.iL-teri.sUc; suddenness the islands of Japan have added one more to the already long list of their vol canic disasters. The unexpected anil destructive outburst of the Sakuras hima volcano v.'ill serve to remind us that tile land which the passing tourist s wont to apostrophise as that of the otus—"where it is always afternoon"— is one ot the most troubled 011 the face ot this planet. Japan has llio separate volcanoes. I nrec-tourths of these are "dead." That js to say, they are so regarded oflieial } in the maps ol the Tokio geologists; though, now and again, one of them violently gives the lie to the recorders of their history.

CHAPTER XXI. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 April 1914
CHAPTER XXI. Perhaps it was well for Netta that the old lady, "so severely tried of late, collapsed as she was Intending to en ter the house, full of resolve to "see the disappointed young bride whose wedding had been so roughly inter rupted by her relative, Gwendolen Halldare, through." Netta, forgetting herself and the crisis in her life, summoned the ser vants and the confectioner's man to her rescue—herself assisting to carry Lady Montamor to her bedroom and undressing her with tenderest solici tude while Annie rushed for the doc tor. "Oh mem! That there gipsy—'ere are 'er words hout! If it ain't haw ful! 'Is lordship called away sud- • dint, 'er ladyship took ill no weddin' I breakfls, no nuthink!

The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER XX. Suspense. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 April 1914
The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knavo of Hcarte," CHAPTER XX. Suspense. A veiled woman, finely developed, in black, stood to the left of the vicar, who gazed at her in mild as tonishment. Netta stared at lier, won dering rather than alarmed. Lady Montamor's great eyes flashed scorn. She had at once recognised Gwendo len in the unseemly interrupter who had suddenly stepped out of the shadow cast by a stoue pillar. And Robert drew himself up and looked at the spot in the veil where the eyes of the intermeddler should be. He was pale, but an expression of contempt as well as of determination was expressed by every feature of liis comely face. He recognised Gwen dolen—but aiso recognised that she had no right to interrupt his wedding; her so doing was, in his opinion, 011 a par with the fact that she had hunt ed him down, probably by detectives in her pay. I Indignant, his first instinct was to protect Netta. "After that, the de luge," he thought, as, turni...
IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 April 1914
IS UNIVERSAL PEACE POSSIBLE? By Frank Culley. •Many people throughout the world are cherishing the idea that some day war will bccomc a thing of the past, and universal peace will ibe establish ed. Only a lew weeks ago a great palace was opeued, and thousands of pounds have ibeen given to the cause; but is the ideal state possible, or are the advocates chasing a phantom? Of course, / quite agree that it ap pears possible to settle disputes by conference; but it is not appearance^ 1 which tell, but facts. Does Nature permit universal peace? Darwin, who was perhaps the gratest nature student the world lias ever produced, offers his theory of the survival of the fittest. How does this fit in with the ideal? As far ibaclt in the history of the world as time will allow us to see the whole living things have been fighting for the mastery one over another. Not only animal life; it also applies to plant life. The lower animals are in many cases protected from themselves, as in the bovine cl...

CHAPTER XXII. Dark Hours. The stormy gusts o£ wind and oc casional showers hail ceased. With (he night a great stillness camc upon the lonely heath. The moon rose, and from among the fleeting clouds shone down upon the pools of watei .—upon the dripping foliage of the few deciduous trees. What a lonely spot, thought Netta, was this chosen 'by her betrothed as her domicile be fore her marriage! Not a human soul seemed astir; and as ten o'clock Struck, and the minutes were ticked away—first it was the quarter-past, then the lialf-hour then the minute hand first crept to the third luarter, then passed it—her nerved were strung to the highest pitch.

CHEERFUL EVER! [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 11 April 1914
CHEERFUL feVER! It's good we can say, with a sigh and a smile: "Times will bo bettor after awhile! The light will stream through the clouds o'erhead, And flowers will bloom where the thorns wore red!" What of the sigh, if we say with a smile: "Times will he'better after awhile?" It's a long, long way to the light of day; But winter gives ever a promise of 'May, And ever we dream, in the darkest night: "The joy will come with the morning light!" Even in our sorrow we say -with a smile: "Times will &lt;be better after awhile!" "Times will be 'better!" In joy and woe Is it not sweeter to sing them so? Sweeter to dream, when the dark's o'er the blue, The eyes of the augels are looking at you? Away with the sigh, then, and sweet be the smile, "Times will be ibetter after awhile!"
