DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 February 1914

DOMESTIC ECONOMY SERVANT SAVED £2000. A pleasing, and evidently authentic, story comes from Baltimore about a family servant, says the New York "Nation." - She came from Germany twenty seven years ago, has lived with one Baltimore family ever since, and now returns to Germany with the tidy sum of nearly £2000, accumulated by steady saving. Particulars as to wages are wanting, but it is evident that she has been having all these years a comfortable home and has been thor oughly appreciated in the household in which she lived. It 13 not improbable that her wages have been somewhat more liberal than usual, and that she has received pre sents that have helped her to economise in the matter of dress. But it is to be noted at once that. there is nothing in the least marvellous about the tale. There are thousands of servants who, without sacrificing the requirements of comfort or self-respect, and without failing to live up to a very good stand ard of appearance as to clothing, could put b...

DEMAND FOR DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS GO BEGGING [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 February 1914

DEMAND FOR DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS GO BEGGING The popular supposition that medi cine is an overcrowded profession is being exploded. The real truth is tha.t there is an extraordinary shortage no doctors at the present moment .and men cannot be found willing to accent public appointments. So serious has the question become that at the opening of the next parlia mentary session a demand will ho pressed for the appointment of a de partmental committee or a. T Commission to inquire into the whole question of the registration of the medical service of the country. Appointments which a little over s year ago would have brought fifty an plidants, have been advertised for six or eight months in the medical ,... oals without bringing a sinrgle renlv. in spite of the fact that the salariel have been increased by 100 ner cent (says The Daily Express").

PEARLS MATCH WOMEN'S COMPLEXIONS [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 February 1914

PEARLS MATCH WOMEN'S CGMPLEXIONS The prominence given to pearls by the proceedings in connection with the theft of Mr Max Mayer's necklace, which he valued at. £140,000, has called attention to the immense sums paid for these gems. Pearls are now the most fashionable jewels, and women buyers take care to secure a shade to match their complexion (according to "The Daily Mail"). "Dark or yellow pearls," said Mr Itayelr, "become dark women,. while light pearls are worn to better advan tage by women of fair complexion. In recent years the demand for pearls has increased because the ostentatiousness of diamonds and rubies often offends the taste. A woman can easily wear £100,000 worth of pearls in excellent taste, but diamonds worth £20,000 would be very obterustive." THREE GOOD PEARLS Mr Mayer said that so far as he knew his famous necklace was the most valuable in existence, but it was pos silble that necklaces bought for a far 'less sum ten or fifteen years ago wore now worth more 'th...

-MAIC WAND ALHAMBRA MUSICAL DIRECTOR. The magic wand-the conductor's baton-at the Alhambra is in new hands (says the Westminster Ga zette"). The magician is Mr John An sell. who for seven years has been cofiductor for Mr Cyril Maude and latterly with iMr Louis Meyer at the Strand Theatre, and has climbed to the conductor's desk from a subordin ate'place in the orchestra. When, last Saturday afternoon (De cember 10), Mr Ansell assumed his newy duties, he conducted the Alham bra orchestra and generally took con trol' of Alhambra revue and ballet for the first time. But the only re spect in which Alhambra habitues could observe any difference from noirmal happenings was that the prin cipals made a point of bowing nicely -a.nd quite noticeably-to the con ductor upon entering the stage. By the middle of this week even the most observant of critics might have supposed, that Mr Ansell had spent his life conducting at the Alhambra. For" he coinmenced with a very great advantage, having the ...

A SUBSTITUTE FOR BEAUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 24 February 1914

A SUBSTITUTE FOR BEAUTY, Physical beauty is a gift of Nature, but attractiveness lies largely within a woman's own power. There is scarcely a woman on earth who cannot malke herself attractive, Looking around, it is quite possible to see hundreds of girls and women who are utterly lacking in attractive ness and charm, because they do not know how to make the best of them selves. They need someone to wake them upl and say: "it is quite wrong for you to be so unlovely. Ylom were meant to ilflu once others towards sweetness and light. And you can never do that while you toil and shuffle through life with a bad figure, an auaemic constitu tion, dusty and ill-kept hair, a bad complexion, and ill-chosen clothes.. You can be attractive without money, But you have got to wake up.'" __ .
