HERE AND THERE. [Be Jonu?Ia WALKBR.1 The Countess of Warwick has been interesting Americans with accounts of the great folk in Eng land.

A CORRECTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 23 May 1912
A CORRECTION. TO THE EDITOR. SiR,--I notice in the columns of your last week's issue; under the heading of "Johnnie Walker," that &nbsp; he made reference to the new resi- dents. I understand that I am one of those referred to, and while thanking him for the notice I would deem it a favour if, you.will kindly correct the paragraph in your next issue. I am referred to as B. O'Shea, which is incorrect. My name is T. W. O'Shea, and well known in Melbourne and Bacchus Marsh, and have been connected with many debates in and around Melbourne. I have also been in charge of Pyke's CreeK Reservoir before joining the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission. I hope you will pardon my intrusion, but as my name is not B. O'Shea I have felt that in justice to myself I should let you know. Yours truly, T. W. O 'SHEA. Werribee, 20/5/12.
SUCH WIVES MAY RULE. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 23 May 1912
SUCH WIVES MAY RULE. Women who aspire to control the husbands should remember that the men who are most thoroughly under wifely influence are generally those who least suspect it. &nbsp; To achieve this result requires a great deal of tact, patience, and self control, and the woman who possesses these qualities shows by the same fact that she is fitted to act as the control- ling influence in her husband's life. But it is always wiser for the wo- man who aspires to guide her husband to do so unobtrusively, so that to the outside world she appears to be fol- lowing meekly in the wake of her lord and master, while all the time she is actually "the power behind the throne."

A SMALL BOY'S OPINION OF GIRLS "Girls," remarked the small boy in his composition upon the subject, "Is of several thousand kinds, and some times one girl can behave like several thousand girls. Some kinds of girls is better than some other kinds, but they ain't any of them up to boys. This Is all I know about girls, and father says the less I know about 'em the better."

DRAWING AN INFERENCE. &nbsp; A young clergymanwho had deliver- &nbsp; ed a discourse in the place of an aged brother minister requested the &nbsp; opinion of the latter respecting it. " Oh," said he, p inly, " many of the words you used were beyond the comprehension of your hearers. Thus, &nbsp; for instance, the word 'inference '-- &nbsp; &nbsp; perhaps not half of my parishiners understand its meaning." &nbsp; " Inference, Intlel' ce " exclaimed the other.

The old man I was in a good humour anl let me I go; so I borrowed a soverCgn from I the second mate and went nahore at I three in the afternoon, as tappy as I a sandboy. It was a still foggy day, and the foghorus were sounding on all the I vessels in the Channel like the cries of a shoal of sea monsters that bad come to the surface, and had found the white steamy upper world little to their liking. But I turned my back on the sea gladly enough, and I stoepped out through the dock gates, I and up the High-street towards the station.

THE PRAISE OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 30 May 1912
THIE PRAISE-OK WoM.itN. Francls I. of France once said that a court without women would be likd a year without spring, and a spring without roses; and Malherbe, who was a poet, said that there are only twd pretty things in the world, wdmen and roses;. and only two dainty morsels, women and melons. Then Chateaubriand said: "tlat without woman would be gross, rude and solitary, and would ignore the grace which is the smile of love. Weo man hangs around him the flowers of life, like those forest creepers which adorn the trunts of oaks with the?f perfumed garahnds." F. J. Stahl said: "'Ihe mIted of we' men has every kind of relation-to.the diamond, It is fine, it is precious, it has a thousand fires, a thousand rays, it has facets which radiate. in every direction, it dazzles and betrays itself, even in the shade, when the slightest opening-is made.

MONEY IN MANNERS. THE REMARKABLE CASH VALUE OF "PERSONALITY." [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 30 May 1912
MONEY IN MANNERS. -'--- THE I1IMARKABLE CASH VALUSI OP " PERSONALITY." Brains count for a good deal in this world, but appearance, bearing, and voice count for moro. A good personality can double your income. A bad one can halve it. I am myself a fairly intelligent man, though I candidly admit that, if I had had to rely on my brains alone, I should never have been able to keep up my hundred-pound-a-yoar house, and three servants. Iy in telligonce told me, while I was still at school, that it needed something additional to bolster it up, and by keepiny my oyes well open I found out what that particular something was. In a word, it was mannor-or per sonality, which is the same thing. Readers may be inclined to laugh when I tell them that, for a whole year, I devoted myself mainly to steadying and deepening my voice, improving my outward appearance, and learning to look people straight in the face. They would do welt in many cases to copy my methods, however, for I count that year as t...

ATTRACTIVE WOMANHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Werribee Shire Banner — 30 May 1912
ATTRACTIVE WOMANHOOD. No woman need be ugly. If there is a soul in herbody, it has but to begld betimes to show through. From her earliest girlbood the thoughts-she thinks, the feelings to which she gives way, the tones she utters, the ;wishes she indulges, are sculpturing lines In her face which are capable of making a' beauty all her own-lines the writing of which will remain when bloom fades and sparlle falls. It is in the beginning of man, hood and in the beginning of old ago thnt a man is captivated simply by a pretty face, and 8s In breathless haste to make her charms his own posses. slon. The mature man is far less subject to a mistaken infatuation. The boy looks for beauty, the glow. Ing cheek, the molting eye, the lovely lip; he cannot enduro tle .notion, he will say, of an unlovoly countenance in perpetual evidence. All men who follow their own do. vices are in danger of malking a god of favorable chance. No matter how carefully trained or how Intellectually gifted a. man ...
