WINTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 March 1914
WINTRY. Oh, England is a mournful place, Djirk arc the days of dull December, When last I saw the sun's red face I'm sure I cannot now remember. I mins the blue-gums sternly tall, The moonlit plains, and inter alia I mi is old friends, hut most of all I i liss the sunshine of Australia. Alof i the storm-gods howl with glee, That having gathered all together The gamut of inclemency They serve it up to us as "weather!" Blea« is my daily portion here, Ard by some strange climatic blunder Innuite another hemisphere 'I he sun is shining 'way down under. The nir is supercharged with grief, While moisture drips from slate and " shinple; And though it gives me small relief My tears with Nature's often mingle. Wild is the wind that whins the tree And breaks the leafless limbs asunder, One radiant thought still comforts rile. The sun is shining 'way down under. With mist and snow ami sleet and hail Across the landscape daily streaking, And he it blizzard, blast or gale, The heavens simply kee...

WOMAN OF TO=MORROW IMMEDIATE FUTURE OF FEMINISM [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 March 1914
WOMAN OP TO-MORROW IMMEDIATE PUTUU15 OP FEMINISM (By CI. M, Swumvlck in "The Daily News and Leader.") 1 hero is otic thins one would like feminism to do nt once, and that Is to change its name to humanism. The great change, which has been coming over the humanist movement uf late and which has been Increasing the velocity of. the movement so that one feels it will In the near future sweep In all humanity, Is that It Is becoming a working women's movement. It Is turning women who never worked be toro into workers, and it is touching the greyest lives of toiling mothers with warmth and light. In England, the movement began In the middle classes, and some of Die most effective stimu lus was at first given by men. It now receives its velocity and mass mainly from women, and these masses are the working women. Humanism is a far wider creed than a merely political one. It has its roots in social necessity, and, deeper still, in ethical and religious Klght. It Is based on the psychological...

BANANAS AND TOMATOES DIET IN. WINTER'. I Ne.il. street, r*orig-acro (says '"lhe Daily TelegrAph" ofJ/inunry 9),Ih not an .attractive thoroughfare. Narrow* dark and cheerless, frequently crowded and noisy, such is this passage connecting IGovent-gnrden with the aristocratic neighborhood of Bloomsbury. Yet at times the place is interesting to those who! like to study many places of Lon don life. In tlic little street may be seen, at times, hundreds of costermon gers, intent on securing supplies of fruit.. It Is an anxious, busy throng; each member of tlie fraternity waiting Impatiently to ho served.

PRESTON CHILDREN'S PICNIC. This annual event seems as popular as ever, attracting an attendance of about 900 (three train loads) to Mordi alloc on Wednesday. There was be hind the concern this year a splendid working committee, with Colonel Bruithwaite, president of the Shire, at its head, and Mr. H. Booth secretary. There was a free response to the col lectors' solicitations, and funds were more than ample to provide everything for the comfort and pleasure of the children on the usual generous scale.
