WE SWANKED ON NOTHING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 March 1914

WE SWANKED ON NOTHING. When Jim and I were first married ' daresay tvc were over-careful about money. To "begin with, wo hadn't much, and when two young people start housekeeping, however carefully they settle just •what things they must have and what these are going to cost, other expenses always crop up, and there Isn't much left of tho savings at the end of it all. So naturally they start by being as economical as pos sible. Then the children came, and we had to think thr«e or four times over every penny for a bit. But after a few years, 'when George and Mary were old enough to go to school, tilings be gan to look up. For one thing, .Tim loft tho" foundry and look up 'with motors, and made very good money. Then my grand mother died and loft me fifteen pounds, as I'd always been her favor ite. And finally Jim put up for the District Council and got elected, so that he felt we ought to make a bit more of a show than we had done In the past. First of all, we must needs move out of t...

The Way It Worked. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 March 1914

The Way It Worked. "Wliat do you do when people come In And bore you?" a warm per sonal friend asked ot a .merchant, "When they stay too long .the office hoy, .who Is very bright and knows just when to Interfere, tells me that a gentleman Is In the counting house waiting to see me on 'import ant business." "Ha! ha! That's a capital way to get rid of bores who don't know " JuBt then the boy opened the door and sang out: "Gent in the countin' house, sir, waiting to see you on 'Im portant business." Reputation may be a mere ^bubble, but it makes an awful .mess when it bursts. The right kind of a fanner will not put his wife to the trouble of asking to go with him to the 01 ty now and again when he goes. Instead, he will steal a march and insist upon her going, which will please her very much.

EYES AND CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 March 1914

EYES AND CHARACTER. Most birds of prey, like most sa vages, have eyes of the darkest hues (says Dr. Leonard K. Hirshberg In the San Francisco "Examiner"). This gives their fierce natures an added ferocity. The evolutionists explain the predominance of the black and brown eyes by pointing to the fact that the most vigorous savages and most powerful animals have them', hence it is a question of the survival of the fittest. In a .wild state of nature the'Tbiue eye is a handicap. It does not oc cur among the juricivllised human tribes, and tout seldom among the brute creatures. One savant main tains that the degree of civilisation and effeminacy present in any race is directly proportional to the number of blue eyes present. Consider for a moment the various emotions to which man is subject. Think of the great number of races there are with regard to the color of the skins. There are dark skinned, red skinned, copper skinned, brown skinned, black skinned, yellow skin ned, 'white skinned...

THE EFFICIENT WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 March 1914

THE EFFICIENT WOMAN. Just so soon as women appreciate that fceing a woman Is being the most desired thing in the world, just so soon as they realise that efficiency Is the strongest (bulwark between themselves and the world, at that moment will the weak, dawdling women stop, playing at being women and 'work to make themselves women in earnest. They will make a busi ness of being -women, just as a man •makes a business of being a hanker or a tailor. Efficiency will do more to solve the divorce problem than any number of laws.

DANCING. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 March 1914

DANCING. Dancing in itself is an action that has always been an expression of the emotions of man, and since this is true, it is as important that the media through which the emotions are ex pressed should be proper as that the emotions themselves should .be the right sort. In Egypt, where dancing originated in the carlist period of civilisation, it was a part of a religi ous ceremonial. The dancing of the nations of antiquity was majestic, dignified and imposing, because it served to express man's higher emo tions. As the world grew older and man became more trivial, dancing took on a different manner. With the beauty loving Greeks it became a vehicle of worship of the gods and godesses, and all the phases of a pleasure-loving people,, and the classic form of dancing -was evolved. With the early Romans the martial dance ivas in favor until the sacking of Rome, when this form of amuse ment disappeared. There follows a fallow period, in which dancing re mained undeveloped, and then c...

Why the Horse Laughed [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 March 1914

Why the Horse Laughed "I 'was in a county court the other day," said the seedy-looking cabman, "and I heard one of those solicitor cliaps say, 'People don't seem to under stand that' the only thing necessary to keep a horse from kicking -when he is down is to get hold of his ear and keep .his nose up in the air. A horse cannot kick when his noso 1s in the aSr. 1 have seen a lady keep a horse ,quiet that way without soiling uer gloves.' 'What's good enough for a lady,' says I, 'is good enough for me,' and I tried it experimental-like, in stead of sittln' on his 'ead." "Well," remarked the attentive list ener, "did the horse kick?" "Not a bit! He seemed so tickled •with the idea that he couldn't stir for laflln'! But I think I shall sit on his 'ead next time, all the same."

CHAPTER IV. LEILA IS AFRAID. [?]. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 March 1914

CIIAl'TKtt IV. LMLA IS AFRAID. T. A seaman would have helped Leila j up the ladder, hut ffugh pushed him j I aside almost savagely. There was a good electric light just above the | gangway, and it showed him the | figure of a woman wrapped in a long! Shetland coat ; of a child whose face j could hardly be seen fot* the fur cap j which covered his black curls. And I yet. he would have known l.eila and l>esdy had the place been black as night. She hod come to him—he never doubted thut she would not re turn. A small kit-bag was all tho lug gage she carried, and he perceived that her hand trembled very much, and closed so nervously upon its handle that the seaman could hardly take it from her. When Hugh had led her to the upper dock, she stared about her with the haunted look of a woman pursued, but chiefly over towards tho town of Newcastle, from which she had lied. What lie said to her he never knew ; he tried to tell her that she was welcome to tho ship, but it was many minutes be...

He had given the order for the yacht to sail immediately .Joseph answered his ring, and soon the bruit of an .immediate departure awakened the sleeping ship. "It was just like the Governor," the men said. The si tipper, a. dour Scotchman, by name Mucdowoll, had Bailed with Hugh too long that any caprice should surprise him.

COLORS IN DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 March 1914

COLORS IN DRES8. Most women are half consciously aware that they do not look their best in a frock sometimes, although it Is cut, made, and trimmed to per fection. In such cases the reason is not Jar to seek—In all probability "the" color Is wrone." The follow ing will prove a partial guide to those who have not yat learnt the art of color choosing to suit their own parti cular coloring: — A brunette with black hair, dark eyes, and a pale complexion may wear bright and glossy blacks BUch as jot and satin provide, deep full reds, flame •color, and black and white. If she possesses a warm colo'rlng, then scar let and all 'bright yellows suit her. Such n lype has to be lived up to, and cold colors such as blue, Mack and white are quite unsuitable. Brown should bo avoided. The dark haired girl with grey or blue eyes has a wide choice, but greens and blues are her best colors, 'uluc-greys suiting her to perfection If her skin is clear and she has a lit tle color. White, black, brown, pur...

SUCH IS "SUGGESTION." [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 21 March 1914

SUCH IS "SUGGESTION." By the .method known as "sugges tion," it is possible (according to a medical, writer) not only to perform the simple experiment of waking one sea at a given nour in me morning, but also to banish all minor 'physical H'ilmonts and even to correct faults in the character.. Just as In the first instance the ex perimenter before going to sleep at night makes a mental request to him self that he shall awake at a certain time on the following morning, so In more important matters he suggests to himself a condition of health or a method of conduct. To take two instances. Supposing you suffer from insomnia, you focus your whole attention upon th,e repeti tion four times a day o£ a given fornvu1 la. iTUus you may say to yourself that you trouble no more about the mat ter, merely repeating the statement at intervals. In two or three days at most the effect—according to the au thority—will ibo felt 1n sound slum bers. Much the same process is adopted where it is desired ...

CHAPTER VI. At Aberfcldy Castle. I. Tliey put into Stranraer. Harbor a little after dusk that day. l-Iugh had told her by that time just what he Intended to do, lind she had heard him without protest. A rough passage with almost a gale from the north east kept them to tho saloon and to the Arch.ieacon's humors. The child alone revelled in the uncertainties of the day. Ho had Herr Joseph clown ing directly his clothes were on, and tnat fat worthy was a thinner and a sadder man when tho lights of Ailsa Craig came to their view. George Hedges was ever a social diplomatist, and Ills knowledge of domestic juriapiudencc intruded hap pily upon this curious situation. Of Leila lie formed a truly clerical opin ion. There would be two sisters, he said to himself, and one of them was o, little wild. It was quite possible rhat this beautiful siren they had trapped at Newcastle was In some measure an adventuress and yet to be discovered. He trusted to his own presence and to the majesty of the a...

STATE GOVERNORS FUTURE APPOINTMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 28 March 1914

STATE GOVERNORS FUTURE APPOINTMENTS (By II. K. Ellison, In "WostmlnBtor Gazette.") The question as to whether local men should be appointed an State Go vernors In Australia Is one which crops up periodically, and In view of the cable which appeared In the Lon don Press on December 19, It is per haps of more than passing Interest to give some information which has no little bearing upon the cable In ques tion. The cable states that the West Australia Legislative Assembly peti tioned the Home Government, asking that the office of Governor of that State might bo filled by a citizen of the Commonwealth. The Colonial Secretary replied that a change In the system of appointing Stato Governors could not be entertained unless it ap plied to all Australian States, and until public opinion in Australia was over whelmingly favorable to the proposal. It is not realised In England how strongly a section of the Australian public feels on the subject of locally appointed Governors, and this opinio...

Not so the Archdeacon; he had '!e cided to remain. -Closeted with Hugh in the private cabin he forgot even to smoke, so great was his curiosity. "Do you mean to tell me, my dear fellow, that yoti propose to take her into Scotland?" ho asked. Hugh admitted the infamy. "I am trusting to my judgment," h» Bald; "If we did that always, life would be rather easier. Just consider, George, how much that we do is the result of men's convictions or their prejudices. Sometimes the prejudices are .feminine—the argument Is the same. I am trusting to an instinct which says that I have met one of the best of women, and that s' e has need of me. If there were a thousand advocates in this cabin at tills mo ment telling me I was deceived, it would make no difference. She will go to Scotland, and I shall ask my sister to take up her case. After that it will be plain sailing." (The Archdeacon was not so sure of it.' "A very worthy purpose," he said, and repeated the words as though they were oil upon I...
