"Is that you, Peter?" The .eyes of Paul Danvers were raised with difficulty, his breath was coining fast, he looked through the dim shadow of death at Peter rel lairs, the friend of his life. "You have come. You are good," said Paul, and he smiled faintly as he moved one very thin hand until it touched the hand, firm, brown and strong, of his comrade. "I was the lucky one, in one-sense," he added after a pause. "We both made up our minds to he rich, hut somehow I got the gold and-you?" "I am a poor man still," answered Peter Bellalrs.

THE DRINKING VESSEL. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 23 April 1914
THE DRINKING VESSEL. When birds are entirely confined to scratchlng-sheda the drinking vessel is often a source of a good deal of trouble and losa of time, for the water gets fouled by the birds scratch ing litter into it, and a wide area round about the vessel is often mads sodden and offensive by the splash ings. To remove or" avoid-these evils , is a simple matter. Take a half-bar rel, place it upside down in the shed, and put the drinking vessel on the top of It. Thus elevated, the "water will not get fouled, nor will the litter be made wet. And the birds, being confined, will rather enjoy than other wise the diversion of hopping up to the liquor table when_flo_ inclined.
THE ART OF DRESSING WELL. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 23 April 1914
THE ART OF DRESSING WELL. The real art of dressing well' does not lie in slavishly following the fash ion, 'but in choosing styles and colors to suit oneself, and in this way em phasising one's best points. A gown, however, simple, should foe chosen "with due regard to one's own personality, hut to do this it is neces sary to spend more than one can afford. .The great mistake so many women make in the matter of dress is in not Pausing to consider whether the sown or hat they Intend having will suit their own particular style of beauty. Bccause a hat or frock looks well upon your friend it does not follow that it will look equally well on you. Your coloring and figure may he dif ferent, and in that case the same dress cannot suit you equally well. To be well dressed a woman must fee suitably dressed, and all the ac-. cessories, which make so great a dif ference to the effect, must he care fully chosen.

The Old Man and the Judge. In an Irish court recently an old man was called Into the witness-bos ond, being inSrm and just' a little blind, he went too far in more than one (sense. Instead of going up the stairs that led to the box, he mount ed those that led to the Bench. Said the Judge, good-humoredly: "Is it a judge you want to be, my good man?" "AU, sure, your honor," was the re ply, "I'm aii ould man now, and mebbe it's all I'm lit for." The Judge had no ready retort. By being handled kindly, colts soon become gentle, and are much more easily handled whor. ihey become horses--.

Accord ingly Freston Tower was erected as a place of study and recreation for the gentle Ellen de Freston.

Taught by Experience [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 23 April 1914
Taught by Experience He entered the shop of a fashionable bootmaker, a look of determination on bis face. It was such a look as one sees on the face of a man who is linuly resolved to carry out, at all ha zards, a decision which will change the whole course of his life. "Ii'm!" he began, as the assistant stepped forwal'd and politely question ed him as to his requirements in feet beautiflers. "I want n pair of shoes for my wife, Mrs. Drown."

"Hut- er-excuse me, Mrs. Brown only takes-that is, she usually lias Ihree-and-a-half," exclaimed the assist :ui:. who knew the lady well. "Are you married, young' man?" queried Brown, sternly, the look of de termination deepening on his care worn features. "Er-not, yet, sir," answered the shopman, blushing.

PREFER THE HUMDRUM. [Newspaper Article] — Foster and Toora Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 23 April 1914
PREFER THE HUMDRUM. Many women, now happily married uid in the prime of their maturity, i apt. to smile at I Ho remembrance ?ii' their dreams of the ideal lover.' They would not exchange the hum drum husband who perhaps goes to sleep after dinner regardless of n wife's presence for the most perfect lover who loved merely in their im agination. Perhaps they have discovered that, for their own part, they, too, may dif fer strongly from the ideal wife of which ihe husband dreamed. There may be shortcomings on both aides. Ont both husband and wife have grown to love the imperfect human being ivho has lived with them for so many years, and who has long taken lUo place in their hearts of the most fascinating but unreal man or woman who went by the name of their ideal.
