BONSOLATION FOR QUIET GIRLS [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 5 March 1914
BPtMSOLATIOfJ FOR QUIET GIRLS Let us look into any ballroom for a few \\'e slisill soon see that the girls are divided ijito three classes. The first consists of the f"tatnng" girl. She is. ar & rule—(.hough by no jneans always--pretty. OneU thing, however, she rover ' lacks—that is, conversation. How much sense there js in her chatter goodness only knows; hue she has the art of looking inter esteq and making her partner believe that she thinks him the clnvcrest man she ever met. And in this lies the secret of her success. The second division consists of the girl who is not striking at first sight, who does not talk for inere talking's sake when she has ncthink worth say ing. and although often clever, ac complished, and pretty, she does not get l:er programme filled nearly so quickly as the first girl. ' The third consists of the hopelessly plain, stupid and awkward girl, who generally sits round the room unless she is dancing with a brother-—or else has a lot of money—look...

OVER-FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 5 March 1914
OVER-FEEDING. "Over-feeding Is the thing trom. which civilisation suffers to-day," says Professor Hereward Carrington. "1 consider it is far more important than drink, because it affects a tar greater number of persons, both young and old, men, women and children. Th& surplus of food in the stomach, parti cularly if it be of an irritating and sti mulating quality, sets up a constant irritation of that organ, which Is tem porarily allayed by the greater stimu lant, alcohoL After reviewing all tho evidence at my disposal, a highly Im portant deduction may be drawn, an extremely significant conclusion reach ed. which affects the welfare of the whole human race. We have at last a scientific basis for calculating what the average intake of food should bo by those in health and who wish to remain in health. Twelve ounces of nutriment daily is all that the body needs in order to preserve its weight and to replace whatever tissue has been loot as tue result of the day'a muscular exe...
RENDERING HONEYCOMB INTO WAX. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 5 March 1914
RENDERING HONEYCOMB INTO WAX. Do Dot leave old combs, pieces of comb, and wax cuppings about, as they are almost sure to entice the wax moth, and if that is the caes, wax, which means honey, Is sooa wasted. Melt all stray bits of comb and then store the pieces of wax away in a tin till all wax melting Is endec for the season. Then re-melt and strain and run into fair-sized moulds. Bo sure to use soft or distilled water when boiling combs, or the lime found in hard water will spoil a lot of wax.
ST. PANCRAS [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 5 March 1914
ST. PANCRAS Mrs H. B. Irving, famous as the crea tor of the part of "Trilby" on the stage, has played many popular roles, but none more popular than that of "pud ding lady" down St. Pancras way. The name is an invention of the chil dren, and it has stuck. It should be explained to tnose who don't know St. Pancras children that Mrs Irvine is one of the visitors who go unobstrusively among the poor and give valuable hints on household mar keting and cookery. She related some of her experiences to a "Daily News'' representative: "I may find the mother ill in bed •when I visit a home," she said. "Or perhaps she cannot leave tlhe baby and others of the family.' They must .lave their meals, of course, and it may not be wise to give the money to buy them. So I go out myself among the stalls in Somers Town and see what I can get "Well, I can buy 3 lbs. of potatoes for a penny—quite good—a ha'penny worth of carrots. As for meat, it is bought in 'pieces.' I buy them at 3d. or 4d. a pound." "Y...

SCROOGE IS HEARD "BLACKMAIL AND CACOPHONY." [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 5 March 1914
SCROOGE IS HEARD "BLACKMAIL AND CACOPHONY." That Christmas Is no longer a fes tival, but a nuisance, has long- been a. heresy privately held by many. But with the dreadful examplo of Scrooge before them they have dared to noth ing more than dark mutterings. They are of those who give, but without joy, and who let the dogs loose on carollers if the street is so dark :hat the dogs cannot be recognised. But this year—it is a fact so signifi cant that the sounds of the knelt should be mentioned to all those who claim they retain the true spirit of Christinas—the heretics are publicly stating their heresy. "The Christmas box," said one of :hese blasphemers to a "Daily News" representative, "ought to be sup pressed. We have had enough of this blackmail, and the risk held over us of being denounced as curmudgeon, a Scrooge, by all the leeches who have ever said 'Good morning' to us -hroughout the year.

CHILD LOVERS' FATE [Newspaper Article] — Upper Murray and Mitta Herald — 5 March 1914
CHILD LOVERS' FATE A pathetic Story of the burning to death of a little boy and girl, who, in the pretty way of children, had been fond "sweethearts" from babyhood, was told at an inquest yesterday at Boughton, Notts (says "The Dail} News and Leader" of December 30). The victims were Elsie Powell and Maurice Pettinger, both aged seven years. On Saturday afternoon, along with half-a-dozen youngsters, the children went into Greenfields Barn to play, ac cording to their custom. The building was stocked with straw. One of the youngsters struck a match and almost immediately the whole place became alight. Terrified, the children rushed out, tut Elsie and Maurice failed to escape. After the flames had been extin guished and the roof had fallen in the bodies of two little victims were found huddled up in a corner, where evidently the lad had done his little best to keep his companion away from danger. Both children were burnt practically beyond recognition. The jury returned a verdict of "...
