A WOMAN'S WEAPONS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 April 1914

A WOMAN'S WEAPONS. A woman's strongest weapon is gentleness (says Beatrice Fairfax), and the wise woman knows it. The average man can be led; but not driven. Woman has her own domain, and it is quite right that she should ho the queen oC it; but when she also wants to be king, prime minister, and entire cabinet, she is overstepping her bounds. The "bossy" woman may be an ex cellent person in her way, but as a household goddess she is of no use The woman who holds the love of all those in the household is she who rules by love, gentleness, and sym pathy. Thank goodness she Is not a rarity; .nt a dear, every-day woman.

A CARPET HINT. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 April 1914

A CARPET HINT. An old lady recently died whose life had been Eaddened by a little quarrel. The day had been fixed for her wed ding, and she and her intended hus band began to put down carpets in the house they were to occupy. She want ed tliem laid one way, he another. They quarrelled and separated. He died shortly afterwards, and the lady never married. This should teach wo men the danger of permitting theii husbands, or intended husbands, to re main in tho house when carpets are being put down. No man will insist upon-being present on such an occa sion if his wife hints that his absence would give her more pleasure. This same rule applies in taking up carpets.
