THE DEAR OLD FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 April 1914
.THE DEAR OLD FARM. I remember, I remember, the house where I was (born; The gaps between the Siding where the sun came in at morn; The nail-heads that dn winter -wore a crown of silver frost, The small old-fashioned window-panes (by the same hand embossed. I remember, 'I remember, the stove pipe through the floor; The kitchen stove that, always led, was always wanting more; The coal I used to carry, the wood I had to get; The boots that stuelr so tightly when I used to get them wet. I remember, I remember, the grind stone where I ground Some 'forty million sickles-how I turned it round and round (Till at last I felt like dropping-asked if we were not most through Learned that we were nearly finished; just another hour or two. I remember, I remember, how those summer nights would speed; How I thought that I could never get the sleep I seemed to need; I recall the voice that w ke me when the dear old clock struck four. And the ever-ready bootjack that hung up behind the door, I remem...
CHAPTER XXV. Release—and Arrest. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 April 1914
CHAPTER XXV. Release-and Arrest. I As usual, the' solicitors on both Bides did not make their clients dance attendance at. the Courts . of Justice until their presence was ac tually required. One morning Gwen dolen, seated at the breakfast table with the faithful luifis . Durnford, re ceived a telegram bidding her to be I at her solicitors' office's In an hour the case would be on during the morning. "What a mercy!" she devoutly ex claimed-although she paled to . the lips. "Oh, Dumple-my release Is in sight-don't you think so?" "My dearest girl, I am sure I hope so," returned MISB Durnford cautious ly. "But when people have come to my age they have learnt not to think this or that. They only hope and trust." "Don't damp my spirits or you will have me collapsing utterly' and dis gracing myself!" cr.ied Gwendolen, "Iiet us think what sort of a get-up is likely to influence the Court. What! Mr. Hale mentioned my dress the other day. I have not. the faintest re collection of it." ".No w...
CHAPTER XXIV. Deus ex Machina. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 April 1914
. CHAPTER XXIV. Deus ex Machlna.. Ronald Halldare sat gloomily in his "study" as he called his breakfast room-half-gunroom, half-library. His untasted breakfast was before him. He had not slept. He had no appe tite for food, for last night he had been summoned by Gwendolen to hear the whole truth-how she had mar ried Robert in a mutual fit of youth ful passion while they were staying together in Scotland, and how at last her certainty that "the pretender" was Robert and no other had driven her to interrupt his marriage with ''the squatter's daughter from Aus tralia." He recalled the interview-how,' in his first bitterness, he had reproached her with a lingering affection for the lover of her youth and how she had blazed with wrath. She had never looked handsomer,:, a grander creature, than when, fac-;: ing him in scorn, Bhe had said, "If ho were to be killed if I did not ac-> knowledge the wretched lie, I would not do it!" at the same time, when, in hiB passion of mingled anger a...
SIMPLE CEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 April 1914
SIMPLE CEMENTS. One of the simplest hard cements is ihe well-known mixture of litharge and glycerine made to a stiff paste. It sets hard as a rock and is oil-proof. A lolution of water glass mixed with powdered calcium carbonate serves the same purpose. A mixture of boiled dnseed oil and fireclay resists acid oetter than most cements, though sul phur melted with glass-powder is also irery resistant to chemicals in general. A good stone cement is made by jni*» ing two parts of magnesium oxide, one part of magnesium chloride, powdered Stone to suit as-a filler, and water to make a stiff paste.

The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER XXIII. Galling Bonds. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 April 1914
The Great Montamor1 6ase. By ALICE M. DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts/' CHAPTER XXIII. Galling Bonds. Strangely enough, when her belov ed, the betrothed husband -whose marriage with her at the rural parish church, had been roughly 'interrupted by the woman o£ whom he said, "I married my cousin Gwendolen-she is my wife," Netta was relieved, con soled, rather than overwhelmed. In these crises ot life, memory is as vividly awakened as all the other mental faculties. Netta remembered that for fifteen long years her Robert bad been dead to his old surround ings and every human soul they en vironed. She recollected that so long a desertion of any wife would go far to break the tie in the case of any man. She reasoned, in a flash, that all was not lost. The law might help her-and her beloved. "But supposing you did marry her, dearest, you deserted her! If she chooses, she can set you free-at ease, I understood the marriage laws freed a woman from a husband who had deserted her onl...

WHY WOMEN DO THE WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 April 1914
WHY WOMEN DO THE WORK. More women than ever before are engaging in business affairs, and more than ever before are succeeding? in the industrial world. Why? Is woman's domesticity a fiction ? Does she prefer a business life to caring for a 'home? Is she - especially well fitted to take a high place in bu siness enterprise, and just finding it out?. Or is the wage-earning woman the necessary outgrowth of existing con ditions? Thousands of young girls aTe every year put to work in factories and stores, or sent to business- colleges and normal schools to learn to become i self-supporting, for the simple reason that self-support has become a neces sary clement in woman's life. But, if ' questioned, how many of them will say that they have begun their life work? How many young teachers look forward to-forty or fifty years of taking care of other people's children? How many factory girls or clerks or stenographers, or chorus girls so love their work that they spurn all thought of marriage...
BEDROOM BLINDS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 April 1914
BEDROOM BLINDS. If you have a sensitive eye and brain and sloop lightly, it is not at all a good plaa to screen your windows with red blinds or curtains.

Dark bluo is noxt beat, but not nearly ?o good as groen. To induce the &ound* est and most restful kind of sleop, however, opart from brain sensitive ness, make the room absolutel...
