Tile first time lhe tried to lower it tile grelat rope snap De(l ill mllid-ocean, and whe they gr:lp piledl it and brought it to the surface, it slippedl away from them, andti was golne. Not until he had tried thirty tilmes was the tireless patience of tile inventor rewarded. In life's school one of the lhardest lessons is to learn to wait piatienltly. It lhas been said that speech Ihas bcen givenll to wVomIen to conceal their thoughts, but it sellom te-en con ceals their thoughtlessness. For six months a vicar in tile North has been trying to get a curate. We know mlany olld mIaids who have been trying for years. Most things we haven't the slight est right to aire rather pleasant.

"BE A WOMAN." [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 9 April 1914
"BE A WOMAN." "le a Ilan"' is an injunction which implies that one is endeavoring to aim at achieving all that is best In nmanhood. No one would dreanl of stimnulating a person's ambition to loftier ideals by btidding him "'Be a gentleman." Likewise, there should be no ottence in the use of the word "woman." The dignity of the word. no less than its ihomeliness, enables it to be applied not to any particular sections which can be mtarked off as having more of the good things of thits world than the others, but to all, from tile Queen oni hier throne to the humblest in the land who is contri buting somethilg through her woman liness towards making the comtmun ity around her richer by her devotion to duty, her tenderness, her self-sacri fice, and her love.
