USEFUL INFORMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 4 April 1914
"USEFUL INFORMATION. Never, awaken a person who is ill,' even to give him medioine, unless by definite instruction from the physician. Vegetables should not be dishsd too soon, and should be thoroughly drained from water, so as to be crisp and fresh. Camphor is not only most useful for warding off ilia attacks of moths, but it trill also drive away mice, if placed in j cupboards infested with them. , To clean blankets, put two large tea spoonfuls of borax and a pint bowl of soft soap, into a tub of cold water. When these are dissolved, put in the blankets, and let them remain over night. Nert day rub out, and rinse thoroughly in two waters, and hang them to dry.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 4 April 1914
VARIETIES, To make the host of things id th« right way is to let things make the best of ua. - Beauty in. a woman is liVe the flowers in spring, but virtue is like the stars in heaven. Do the best you can, and G~tl and your own conscience wili approve, though men condemn. If you can say nothing good of any one, say nothing at all, for in friend ship" as in love we aro of!en happier in our ignorance than, in our kuowledge. Home is next to heaven, and the home that is well ordered, comely, pure and bright is thus heavenly by the agency of woman's heart and woman's hand. A great deal depends upon a man'* courago when he is slandered and tra duced. Weak men are crushed by. de traction, but the brave hold on and suo osed. Times of general calamity and con fusion have been productive of the igreatesb minds. The purest ore comes from the hottest furnace; the brightest lash from the darkest oioud. The days are made on a loom whereof r,he warp and woof are past and futvre time. They are maje...
FINLAND'S ARSENAL. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 4 April 1914
FINLAND'S ARSENAL. Finland has been called "a land ol schools." Twenty years ago the land had 2S per cent of its population un der tuition. TJleaborg, in the north, which is locally called Oulu, had seven schoola for the upper and middle classe*, and five for the children of the poor. It is in relation to a school for the poor that Harry de Windt tells the following story in his book on Finland. It was related to me by' an Eng lishman who, while passing through Oulu some years ago, made the ac quaintance of a schoolmaster, now deceased. The traveller expressed sur prise that Finland was permitted by Russia to retain her currency. "Russia dare not take it from us," was the schoolmaster's reply. "Dare not! Why, you could not fight Russia!1' "Oh, yes, we could! We make guns, and very big guns, here in Oulu. We have an important foundry. Do you care to see it?" The Englishman followed his host with surprised curiosity until they came to the gates of a large brick building, from which we...
THOSE WHO DO THEIR BEST. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 4 April 1914
JHOSE WHO DO THEIR BEST. Ie it not time that the cant of thoM oft-repeated words, "I did my best,*' be upheld to vigorous protest? One trembles to think from how many lips and on how many occasions the phrase has been tendered as justifica tion for .the grossest blunders. Whether used by a bank clerk who can't "add up," or a cook who rviaft the "joint,^"jt constitutes, .tke ktl mark of crass incapability!" and is in variably the final resort of the lazy and incompetent. To really do one'a best iB tke most difficult thing in the world; merely to say om has done It, quite the easiest. Hence the facility with which lazy people "trot out" the words: "Well, I did my best." But what of the incompetents? Surely they, of alt people, should spurn the phrase as they would the Devil, being, as it is, nothing but the admission of a truth that it would pay them to conceal? The point of view of the man' who says to his employer: "I am well aware that my mistake bas involved you in great loss, but...

"Darn'd.if I know, but I'm going to plump against Web ber." was the reply. 'Hullo! Webber, what's your chance?" was the exclamation of a friend who overtook them. A halt for a few seconds to shake hands and ex change a word or two was the stranger's opportunity. He had caught the name " Webber," and it galvanised him into activity, for he glided down a side street, and has not been seen since. "...

CHAPTER XXII. LADY MARY WESTALL. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 18 April 1914
CHAPTER XXII. LADY MARY WESTALL. If Violet had been wiser or had been endowed with more guile, she would not. have trusted herself with the man George Simpson, whose eyes dwelt on her with so much boldnesB and admiration ; but she was with out guile herself, and although she Had some hesitation about taking the step suggested by him, she had dis missed it. There was something in the man that inspired her with confidence and she had not yet learned to distrust her instincts. - She permitted him to hand her into a four-whlreler, with a feeling of wonder, perhaps,' but without any doubts troubling her. j " May I sit inside with you ?" he asked with great respect. " Certainly," she answered ; and he j stepped in and closed the door. They rode along in silence for some time ; then Violet said to him : j " What is> the name of the lady you are taking me to ?" He hesitated a moment before an swering, then he said : I "Lady Westall," | He watched her face narrowly as j he spoke ; but he ...
