COURTSHIP CUSTOMS. THE OLD WAYS AND THE NEW. EVOLUTION OF THE ENGAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 15 May 1909

coy^Tstiip cusxpiyis. THE OlyD WAYvS AND THE NEW.. , EVOLUTION OF THE ENGAGEMENT. According to one of those nicely illustrated and .always interesting-journals conducted in the in terests of frilled and fluff}' femininity, young girls are less eager to marry than they used to be. We've noticed it. It is, however, also a noteworthy fact that they are ever so much more anxious to be en gaged, and, unless afflicted with a wooden leg, or some other equally painful physical infirmity, -manage to keep more or less busily enjrayed all the time. It is much more convenient to be en gaged than married; it relieves one of various re sponsibilities, and prevents disillusionment. Away back in that romantic period of history when woman gave up tree-climbing and shying' impassioned cocoanuts at the matinee idol of the time, and devoted herself sedulously to trying to acquire the art of walking on her feet, the love lorn swain used to make a practice inditing a few tender expressions of regard on a...

Brides Who Can't Cook. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 15 May 1909

? Brides Who Can't Cook. A girl who deliberately marries without understanding the art of cooking is com mitting a- well, the law of the land doesn't call it a crime, but the unwritten law of the . home certainly does constitute it a crime. Especially is this true of those in modest circumstancjes who cannot employ efficient ' cooks'. Burnt fingers, sour bread, scorched roasts, leauiery si:eaKS, wisny-wasny conee, and disordered stomachs are not conducive to 'the happiness1 that one imagines the honeymoon should be filled with. Good cooking is the basis of happiness, health, a'nd success in the home life. One ma}r thoroughly understand art, music, architecture, science, and philosophy, be familiar with astronomy, mythology, the ' mysteries of evolution, politics, ancl litera-- . ture; yet if the chemistry of a loaf of bread ? has been ? neglected, the education is sadly incomplete, so far as the ' house mother' is concerned.

'?Just Set.' A. man who does not like work very well was asked how he spent his time. ' ' Well, ' \ he said, ' ' Some days I just set and think and other days I just set.' A great many people ' just set ' without think ing. Menial laziness is fatal to growth. Many T-eot-le never think down deeolv into anv subiect. They just browse around on the surface. They never have trained themselves to concentrate, to hold the mind upon one subject ; their thinking is of the hop-sldp-and-jump order. It does not matter how. good a brain one has, before it can accomplish aii)7thing worth while it must be trained unto concentration.

One of the hardest lessons that a woman ^ever has to learn is that she cannot revive a man's interest once it begins to wane.
