THE EFFICIENT WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 21 March 1914

THE EFFICIENT WOMAN. Just so Eoon as women appreciate that /being a woman is being the most 'desired thing in the world, just so soon as they realise that efficiency 1s the strongest ibulwark 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 banker or a tailor. Efficiency will do more to solve the divorce problem than any number ol laws.

COLORS IN DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 21 March 1914

COLORS IN DRESS. Most, women ura half consciously aware tliat the]' do not look their best In ii frock sometimes, although It Is cut, made, and trimmed to per fection. In such cases tho reason Is not far to seek—In all probability "tlic" color Is wrong." Tho follow ing will prove a partial guide to thosa who have not yol learnt the art of color choosing to suit their own parti cular coloring: — A brunotto with black hair, dark eyos, and a pale complexion may wear bright and glossy blacks such as jet and satin provide, deep full reds, flame color, and black and white. If she possesses a warm coloring, then scar let and all bright yellows Ruit her. Such a type has to be lived up to, and cold colors such as blue, Mack and white are finite unsuitable. Brown should be avoided. The dark haired girl with grey or blue eyes has a wide choice, but greens and blues are her best colors, uiuc-greyu suiting her to perfection If her skin is clear and she has a lit tle color. White, black, brown, p...

SUCH IS "SUGGESTION." [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 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 tho simple experiment ot waking one self at a given hour in tho morning, but also to banish all minor physical ailments and even to correct fnults in tho character. Just as in tho Hist 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 the repeti tion four times n day oC a given forma' la. iTlius you may say to yourself that you trouble no more about tho ■mat ter, merely repeating tho statement at intervals. In two or three days at most tho effect—according to tho au thority—will ibe felt in sound slum bers. Much tho sumo process Is adopted where it is desired to b...

EYES AND CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 21 March 1914

EYES AND CHARACTER. Most blrda of prey, like most sa vages, have eyes of the darkest hues (sayu Dr. Leonard K. Hlrshberg 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 savageB and most powerful animals have them', hence It Is a question of the survival of the fittcEt. In a wild state of nature the blue eye is a handicap. It does not oc cur among the uncivilised human tribes, and but 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, ...

WE SWANKED ON NOTHING. Whan Jim ami I wore llrsl married I daresay wc were over-careful about money. To begin with, wo hadn't much, and when two young people start housekeeping, however carefully they settle dust -what things they must have and what these are going to cost, other expenses always crop up, and there Isn't much left of the savings at the end of It all. So naturally they start by being as economical as poa sllblo. Then the children came, and we had to think three or four times over every penny for n bit. But after a few years, •when Clcorge and Mary were old enough to go to school, things be gan to look up. For one thing, Jim left the foundry and took up with motors, and made very good money. Then my grand mother died and left me fifteen pounds, as I'd always been her favor ite. And Anally Jim put up for the DlBtrlct Council and got elected, so that he felt wo ought to make a bit more of a show tlian we had done In the past. First of all, we must needs move out of the c...

DANCING. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 21 March 1914

DANCING. Dancing In ItBolf Is an action that has always been an expression of thq emotions of man, and since this is true, it is ns important that the media through which the emotions are ex pressed should be proper .is that the emotions themselves Bhotiid be the right sort. In Egypt, where dancing originated in the earllst 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 GrccliB it became a vehicle of worship of the gods and godosses, and all the phases of a pleasure-loving people, and the classic form of dancing was evolved. With the enrly Romans the martial dance was 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...

AU REVOIR. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 21 March 1914

AU UEV01K. Prior to the adjournment of the court, the P.M., on behalf of the Bench, in timated that he understood tlmt that would be the last occasion of Mr. J. S. Whalley's attendance at court, on ac count of a contemplated holiday trip to the old country, lie might say that, of ul! the professions, journalism was the most wearing, and every pressman should have the opportunity of holidays. As far as Mr. Whalley was concerned, he had attended that court regularly during a quarter of a century, and had come to be looked on almost as a part of the court. The Bench desired to con vey its very best wishes, and hoped for a safe return with renewed health and vigor. Mr. I. Barrow, J.P., warmly endorsed the sentiments expressed by Dr. Cole, stating that during his long connection with the court, Air. Whalley had held the respect of Bench and Bar. Mr. Croft, on behalf of the legal pro fession, voiced appreciation of the many years' constant courtesies displayed by Mr. Whalley, whoso tempor...
