Richard Dale's heart was heavy. In splto of his bravo words of an hour since, when he had ordered Lib 1,5' and lire brothers out of his sight, the "poorhouse" loomed large on his mental vision. In a week's time, if not before, he and Betty would be li'rnec" away from the small holding that had been farmed by his father imd grandfather before him. He had spoken of work, but who would take an old man when there were plenty of young ones ready and i-ager for employment? rfis troubled gaze went from time to time to that pathetic figure in the inglenook. He watched the shadows deepen until a brooding peace seem ed to envelop all the land; the nod ding tea-roses Bhowed darker in the ga'hering dusk the scent of flowers idte heavily from the dew-drenched earth; the smell of clover and new t.iown hay was in the air. This was the hour that ho and Betty had al ways loved the best-the hour of rest after a day ot toll. With Angers that shook he felt for a time-worn briar, and, placing it me chan...
LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Trafalgar and Yarragon Times — 24 April 1914
LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. Marriage is never a failure-but tho contracting parties frequently are. All meu arc 'borne free and equal, but most of them spoil it by getting married. If it is anything he has paid to hear the average man belleveB It iB true. A woman never lias much use for a man who she cun't teach to be jeal ous. "Widow's weeds" rarely inter fere wltli the growth of a future crop of orange blossoms. If a man cun't persuade some wo man to lead him into temptation ho gets in of his own accord. ? It's surprising how many friendi you have when you don't need thorn. " There is no crime ou earth a ?woman wont' forgivo a man If he tellB her that her 'beauty drove him to it. Sometimes our paths are Btrewn with red rose leaves, sometimes with blue summonses. Women want everything that man lias, except moustaches and bald heads. Every dimple In a pretty girl's face registers a dent In a man's heart. Diplomacy Is, in tho main, the art ot backing down with dignity after you have gone too...

FEMININE TRAITS. A woman walking on a city foot way will generally choose the inside.
