WOMEN'S INTERESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 February 1914

WOMEN'S INTERESTS. By "Ambrosine." The uew sleeve, the now collar, the now sash ! It Js oimply a question ol picking and choosing. For example, then* i.s the high girdle with filmy bertha. Such satisfies a slender figure ana no other. The same may bo said of tlio much draped skirt. lie fore mo, as 1 write, is a very pretty costume in flowered silk. It lias a bertha with a pretty free frill, a high girdle, which the stylo makes higher, and a skirt with free pannier sides, gathered to the back a third down. Tho effect is reminiscent of the shepherdess--Dres den China. A beautiful dress is in yellow and white etamine, beetle-wing like panniers, the least bit festooned, It goes with a rather largo hat of inaline, and a parasol of net and silk, of same color scheme. A lovely gar don party frock is of embroidered crope and rose chiffon. First take tho bod ies section-bolero-like "V': neck.

THE PIG A GRAZING ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 February 1914

IKE PIS A GRAZING ANIMAL. Tho too closely penning of pigs (ex cept while topping up) is a mistake. In a stato of nature the pig is a grazing animal. For breeding and growing pigs, a grass outrun is prelit:;Me. Admitting that pigs must be fed differently, from other stoolc, when housed, yet grass is still a natural food to them, even as it is to horses and cows. Pigs graze as close to the grund as shoep. It is sometimes stated) that pasture deterior ates under cows, but whether this be so or not, pigs benefit pasturage, and rapidly improve poor quality grass. Even the very youngest pigs running with the mother will graze a little, but should bo given some other food a.s well. Shade ahdi sholtor are neces sary. Sunburn is to be guarded against. Even with larger pigs, a sudden change from dull to sunny weather during the hotter portion of the year means sunburn. When grass is plentiful, storo pigs of all ages can lie run on it ehoaplj', and need but very little trough food. With regard...

THE NURSERY. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 February 1914

THE NURSERY. Home-made Picture Books. - Little children enjoy pictures, especially col ored ones. Books for tiie mounting of pictures are not expensive to buy, but the . mother or nurse with con structive development will soon put to gether pasto-board lids of boxes and strongly, gluo a piece of calico to tho edges to fix them, in book form to ad mit of leaves and pictures to bo pasted later. A strip of brightly 'patterned cretonne pasted over the whole, and two strings neatly seamed to the middle of oaoh back to tie the book together, makes strong durable backs that will hear a lot of knocking about.

ADVICE BY A LADY DOCTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 28 February 1914

ADVICE BY A LADY DOCTOR. "One of tae pcculiaritits of tho pres ent day," said Dr Mary Scharliob, lecturing ap the. London "institute of Hygiene lately, "is that wo have a perfect determination wo will suffer no pain wo can possibly avoid, ,-uk! that wo will lie very impatient and dis agreeable when pain is inevitable. "IJecauso we feel like that/ she ob served, "wo have a tende.'ie.y to take drugs to relievo pain. This is not the spirit which we have always hoped is characteristic of the English. This is not the spirit which enabled Captain Scott to write soven, eight, or nine really cheerful letters as he watched his companions die and felt that he himself must go in an hour or little more." Those who wanted to suffer and bo strong, she said, must not take those destructive drugs whose, names end in "al." She named sulplional, voronal, and chloral., with the warning that none of these should bo taken, except under tho immediate direction of the doctor; and the doctor ought to prote...

AMONG THE KINGFISH. SPORT FOR- STRONG MEN. A sport that is becoming very popu lar amongst New Zealand fishermen and thoso from abroad, is tlio pursuit of the kingfisli, which abounds in summer in several parts of the Auckland coast, hut which is particularly plentiful in the Bay of Islands. The kingfisli is fre quently caught near Auckland, but the waters around Capo Brott and the Bay of Islands appear to bo a particularly favorite haunt of the lisli, and the ex cellent shelter for launches that is avail able thoro in case of emergency largely assists in making this part of the coast an ideal fishing ground. "Rod fishing," snys Mi'. D'Arcy (a recent visitor), "is usually referred to as the 'gentle art,' but as applied to kingfishing it is quite a misnomer, Co:' I found it to bo about the most strenu ous physical exercise that I have un dertaken for many years. It would require considerable endurance to fol low it up continuously, but for about two or threo days a week it provides ab...

Try to put them at tlieir ease, and by the time you have done so you will be quite at ease your self.. 2. Get firmly into your mind the fact that there is 110 disgrace at all in being shy, and that you needn't be a bit shy of admitting that you aro shy. Many of tho greatest men and women tlio world has ever known have been troubled in tho samo way all through their lives. 3. Don't plan beforehand what you aro going to say or do, for this will only help you to bo nervous and wor ried. Fill your mind wth something else till the greater moment eomes, and then speak or act quite naturally. 4. Remember that no one is think ing half as much about you as you are about yourself.
