SIX CURES FOR SHYNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914
SIX CURES FOR SHYNESS. 1. Remember that other people are pretty nearly sure to be just as shy of .you as you are of them, even if they don't showit.at all. Try to put them at their ease, and by the tim~ you have done so you will be quite at esso your self. 2. Get firmly into'your mind the fact that there is no d.sgrace at all in being shy, and that you needn't bc a bit shy of admitting that you are shy. Many of the greatest iten and women the world has ever known have been troubled in the samo way all through their lives. 3. Don't plain beforehand what you are going to say or do, for this will onhi help you to be nervous and wor ricd. Fill your mind ewth something else till the greater moment comes, 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. Therefore dozens ,f little trifles-an unfortunate word or en .awkward movement or anything ol that kind--ivill slip past other people qu:te unnolticed though they...
ROUNDED ARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914
ROUNDED ARMS. Should the arms be- thi8and scraggy, a very simple exercise will do wonders to produce the curves that are so at tractive.

Sponge off with warm water. to which has been added the juice of half a lemon. Dry with a soft towel, and dust. with pow?lered oatmeal. For chapped lips: Mlany people suffer from this unsightly blemish. in winter time, and will b,. glad to know that if a little pure glycerine is rubbed into the lips before going out they will kleep soft and smooth.
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Very large hats are extremely dllif cult to hang up securely. The dilli culty can be overcome by stitching a loop of tape to the head lining of the hat. The loop is easily slipped over any hat peg. When an invalid's room needs sweep ing, the best way is to wipe up the carpet rapidly with coarse " towels wrung out of cchll water. This dis poses of the dirt without annoying the patient, either iby dust or noise, and is the mnethodnemploycd by trained nur Poisons of nin?y descriptions. which have been intentionally or accidentally Icil; may almost. instantly be rend ered harmless by simply drinking half a pint of sweet oil. A person with a strong oonstituti:n might take more. Instead of buying penny packets of table salt, prit two pennyworth of lump salt in a cool oven to dry thor ougliy, then grate and sift it. With every four ounces of salt, mix a tea spoonful of cornflour, put into jars or bottles, andl store for use. It will never get lumpy. A buttonhole worked in ...
IRON IN FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914
IRQN IN FERTILISERS. Iron is always found in the ash at plants. and, therefore, forms a part of their composition, but in such an in significant quantity that it is not neo essary to take it into consideration.. A crop of wheat, grain, and straw is estimated to contain only about 2lb to the acre, and hay from 31b to g5b. IMr ,Muntz., Professor of the Institute Ag ronomique, at Paris, investigated this subjeot, and pointed out that the ac tion of sulphate of iron as regards producing-increase of crop or improve ment of quality does not justify the favorable opinions sometimes expressed. Farmers should not be induced to pay for it as an ingredient in chemioal manures. . On the other hand, al though of no commercial use as a fer tiliser, it possesses properties 'lwhich are most useful as an insectioide, and For the removal of moss, dodder, and other noxious growths.
AN EYE HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914
AN EYE HOLIDAY, Everybody should give his eyes a day's holiday at least once a month. This is the opinion of an experienced house surgeon. "In the present age," he says, "we experience far more eye strain, owing to increased reading ha bits and multitudes of glaring lights, thail our forefathers did. and we suffer more from headaches. Therefore, give your eyes a holiday as frequently 'as possible. Give them a day's absolute rest, and the relief the next day will be most refreshing. When taking an eye-holiday a room with green wall paper is a, good place to Test in if one cannot get to the country and Na ture's green fields and bees. Green rests the _eyes more than any other colour." Kisses are the heors d'oeuvres of the menu of love; jealousy is the savoury.

THOSE WHO STAY AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914
THOSE WHO STAY AT HOME. There are some in this world who are compelled .to tarry at home. The. great enoe of life goes on, and they. are left bchind; they are too weak to run. . 'hey have nothing to do with the toil of the brain; their work is all 'ith the heart. But. what a work that is I The toils of the hand and brain are nothing to it; these yield a solace to theiroen ergy, but., the sad' heart has only to bear. It is harder to bear than to do. I may be rudely jostled in tile race, but the race itself gives an excitement that makes me forget my_ pain. I am there, at least, in the company of my fellow men. But to tarry, at home, to wait passive under the shadow of God, to have nothing to do but the burden of one great cross; this .is'the trial of life --this is the trial of love.

HEARTLESS PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914
HEARTLESS: PEOPLE. - Heartlessness is of two kinds. There is the heartlessness of the person who has become callous through his own fault. Another kind of heartlessness is characteristic of a class. of people who, as it were, are "born.so." They are naturally incapable, of feeling any thing acutely, and are strangers- to deep emotion. Heartlessness is far more common than some of us imagine, for it is not always easy for us to' detect. Many heartless people are good citizens and good friends, frequently possessing qua lities that in a way atone. They may be just, generous, high-minded and useful, and they are as a rule, level headed. One variety of heartless man is very dangerous. It is the man who at the same time that he is heartless is also a sentimentalist, and without hypocricy expresses feeling. He can sympathise with others to such an extent and in such a pleasing manner that the last thing they would guess of him is the truth. At. the moment he is sincere. Only those wsho kn...

DAIRY FARMING AS A PROFES SION FOR WOMEN. In these days of close competition and when so many women are seeking uc cupation and independence, or it may bo .a livlihood, it is difficult to fiud amongst the professions open to no men one which is not yet overstocked. To the woman who possesses average mental ability, a strong physique, good health, and a capacity for work, dairy ing in its variouis branches seems to offer at once an attractive, healthy and hiucrativo opening. It is not to be supposed that the woman who proposes to take up this profession can become qualified in a short time; as a mattcr of fact, dairy work, ofter the principles have been fully mastered, requires months; even years, of constant practice-to gain the experience necessary for the atual prac tical work. To the dairy student duly qualifi.Žd there are various possibilities to teach others, and she oould reduce the labor expenses and considerably add to her income by taking lupils at a premium.

DYSPEPTICS NEED NOT DIET. A Simple Means of Preventing Food Fermentation. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 6 March 1914
DYSPEPTICS NEED NOT DIET. A Simple Means of Preventing Food Fermentation. Food fermentation is the cause of all the discumfort and pain dyspep tics'suffer. It does not necessarily follow, however, that in order to obtain relief they must deny.them selves the enjoyment they derive from eating so-called indigestible luxuries. The most satisfactory method of overcoming the difficulty would be to prevent fermentation from occurring to all, and thib can be done by a very simple means. It must first be explained that most of the foods we eat contain a certain quantity of acid-forming elements, and inrdigestible foods, of course, contain larger proportion. When these. foods are eaten, the acid col lects, irritates the walls of the stomach' and causes the food to fer -ment while it is digesting. This fermenting food also gives off gas which distends the stomach, caus ini that full, uncomfortable feeling so otten noticed atter eating. The root of the trouble is the acid fer mentatiou. To suc...

Inter-Lodge Rifle Shooting. DRUIDS BEAT FIRE BRIGADE. The opening match in connection with -the above competition was commenced on Tuesday, 25th Feb ruary, when there was a large at tendance, which shows that keen interest is being taken by the var ous teams. A very close contest took place, but it was expected that the Druids would have an easy victory on account of the big mar gin which was between these two teams when they had a friendly match some time previous. The Fire Brigade were not so easy to defeat as they looked, and it was not iintil about the last shot was fired that the result was known. For the Fire Brigade M. Geog hegan shot well and .put on the "possible, while for the Druids, R. Gibson put up a good 24. The six top scores of each team are counted, which are as follows: Druids Fire Brigade. R.
