THE DEAR OLD FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
THE DEAR OLD FARM. I remember, I remember, the house where I was liorn; The k;M>s between the siding where I lie sun came in at morn; The nail-heads that in winter wore a crown of silver frost, The small oid-l'ashioned window-panes by ihe same band embossed. I remember, 1 remember, the stove | pipe through the iloor; J The kitchen stove that, always fed, | was always wanting more; The coal 1 used to carry, the wood I had to get; The boots that stuck so tightly when I used to get them wet. I remember, I remember, the grind stone where I ground Some forty million sickles—how I turned it round and round •Till at last I felt like dropping—asked if we were not most through— Learned that we were-.noar.iv.-n—1-1— _ i,.cr-nour or two. I remember, I remember, how those summer nights would speed; How 1 thought that I could never get the sleep I seemed to need; I recall the voice that w ke me when the dear old clock struck four, And the ever-ready bootjack that hung up behind the door.

WRECKERS OF MEN AND NATIONS. The Smile and the Wile of Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
WRECKERS OF MEN AND NATIONS. The Smile and the Wile of Woman. Umpires have fallen before the wiles of woman. Rome sang of the achievements of Antony. Antony look ed into the eyes of Cleopatra nnd laid down honor and life. Louis XV. dallied with the Pompa dour and On Barry until his kingdom tottered. The royal roue died and left his grandson and heir a heritage of death. Mary Stuart played at love with many men until she lost her throne and at last her head. These women have been the lure that led men to destruction. Tliey baffled scientists and sociologists. By all the rules of the game they should have been wholly creatures of evil. Some were, but that others of them were warm-hearted, impulsive and be witching to good and bad people alike is a puzzle to alienists. When face to face "with the lives of these wreckers of the world, scientists hold up their hands, shake their heads and say: — "We cannot tell you about it—may be some day we can, but not now; it is too much to expect us...

WRITTEN IN RINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
WRITTEN IN RINKLES. Nothing is more damaging to beauty in woman than worry. The worrying woman invites the hand of time to write plenty of wrinkles on her brow, and round her eyes and mouth; to tint her face yellow, and give dullness to the eye that no artifice can brighten. Worrying, moreover, is quite unneces sary, and is a total waste of energy which could bo employed in doing something useful. Everyone knows the worrying woman the moment they see her. Her character is written in her face in wrinkles which apparently nothing short of a miracle could ob literate.

CHAPTER XXIV. I Deus ex Machina. Ronald Halldiire sat gloomily in his "study" as lie called his breakfast room—half-gunroom, half-library. His untasted breakfast was before him. He had not slept. He liad no appe tite for food, for last night he had been summoned by Gwendolen to hear the whole truth—how she had mar ried Robert in a mutual lit of youth ful passion while they were staying together in Scotland, and how at last her certainty that, "the pretender" was Robert and no other had driven her to Interrupt his marriage with "the squatter's (laughter from Aus tralia." He recalled the interview—how, in his first bitterness, he had reproached her with a lingering affection for the lover of her youth and how she had blazed with wrath. She had never looked handsomer, a grander creaturc, than when, fac ing him In scorn, she had said, "If he were to be hilled if 1 did not ac knowledge the wretched lie, I would not do it!" at the same time, when, in his passion of mingled anger and love,...

The Great Montamoi By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress ol "Tho Kuave of Hearts,'' CHAPTER XXIII. Galling Bonds. Strangely enough, when her belov oil, the betrothed husband whose marriage with her at the rural pur is it church had been roughly interrupted by the woman of wiioiu he said, "1 married my cousin Gwendolen—slie - is my wite," Netta was relieved, con soled, rather than overwhelmed. In. these crises of luc, memory is as vividly awakened as all the other mental faculties. Netta remembered that tor lilteen long ytars her Kooert had been dead to Ins oiu oUituuihi lugs and every human soul they en vironed. She recollected that so iony a desertion of any wjie would go lar to break the tie in the case 01 any man.

CHAPTER XXV'. Release—and Arrest. I As usual, the solicitors on both sides did not make their clients dance attendance at. the Courts of Justice until their presence was ac tually required.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
KITCHEN WRINKLES. Wring chamois out of soapy water without rinsing. When it dries it is soft and serviceable, instead of stiff. A froublesome corn can be eased by a poulticc composed of a thin slice of lemon worn over it during the day. Sprinkle a few tablespoonfuls of salt over the kitchen fire after it is made up, and ■ it will keep going for hours without requiring any attention. After boiling salt beef leave two or three cooked carrots in the liquor till cold. The carrots will absorb the salt, and the liquor can be used for soup. To prevent moths from invading drawers and boxes where woollen goods are stored, sprinkle a little tur pentine in the drawers or boxes every three months. If two or three lumps of sugar are placed in kettles and teapots, they will absorb all moisture and will prevent ruct and the "fusty" smell which is the result of their being left half-dry. For a disinfectant for a sink, pour down a gallon of boiling water mixed with two tablespoonfuls of soda and a t...

SANG TO HER DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 18 April 1914
SANG TO HER DEATH. Maria Felicita Malibran, the famous mezzo-soprano, daughter of the cele brated Spanish singer, Manuel Garcia, did not die, as is generally thought, from inflammation of the throat; her death, at the early age of twenty-eight, was much more pathetic and drama tic. Although very ill, and advised to take a rest cure, she travelled to Manchester to fulfil a contract. She was engaged to sing the celebrated duet from Mercadante's "Andronico," with lime.. Caradori as her partner, and at the close of the performance the public rose at her and demanded more. La Malibran was pale and exhaust ed, and made appealing gestures to the audience; but the clamor and tu mult went on unceasingly. So, turning to Sir George Stuart, who conducted the orchestra, she remarked: "I£ I have to sing this once more, it will bo my death!" In that case," said Sir George, "you had better retire, and I will apologise to the audience." But she rallied at these words, and replied —"No, I will sing, ...
