WATER AS A BEAUTIFIER. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 21 February 1914
WATER AS A BEAUTIFIER. Sensible women do not run after each new thing' in the way of face creams and complexion beautifiers, for thoy know a very simple &lt;iid to pood diges tion and a. clear, pretty skin. This is simply water, of which vory few women drink one quarter as much as they should in the course of a day. Drink it between meals, and at least three pints—or six ordinary glasses— a day should be the average of an adult.' A woman whose skin is tho envy 01 others,* and who is believed by many to resort to all sorts of "beauty" devices, attributes it entiroly to tho plentiful uso of water, both internally and externally. She drinks a glassful almost every hour. If taken, a. cupful on rising and an other on going to bed, hot water will help to reduce tho weight of a stout parson. Cold water, unless taken with meals, will not increase flesh, but has a tendoncy to harden it and make it firmer.
A SLIPPERY MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 21 February 1914
A SLIPPERY MYSTERY. After years of study scientists are still in ignorance as to the origin of the eel, which is in many ways an ex ceedingly puzzling creature. For instance, he will reside for years in the dark depths of the ocean, and then suddenly adjourn to the surface for a couple of years. He is a born wanderer, and appar ently quite indifferent to changes of climate; for he will warm himself in the Gulf Stream for a time, and then, all of a sudden, make tracks for cold water. After that he may decide to try fresh water, and proceed to take up his abode in a river, travelling some times 3,000 miles to do so! Neither does the eel mind very much whether he' is in the water or not, for he will make his way over damp grass, even when quite young, to a pond or lake miles away. Here he may stay for years, but eventually he will probably return overland to the nearest river, and from thence once more to the sea. Idleness and prido l.it- with a heavier hand than kings and Parliaments....

Jim Britten and Black Moses had evidently been in close proximity to the door, for they entered as soon as the manager opened it. Phillipa shook hands with Jim, and then with Black Moses, who had evi dently considered the affair on which he had come so serious that he had put on his best clothes and bowler hat which, being two sizes too small for him, made him look like an enlarged schoolboy.

CHAPTER XVI. [Newspaper Article] — Stawell News and Pleasant Creek Chronicle — 21 February 1914
CHAPTER XVI. If Phillipa Mannersley had been surprised by Marshall Stead's con duct at the Castle, Marshall Stead was infinitely more surprised by Phillipa Mannersley's behaviour at the counting-house. He was, in fact, so much surprised, that when she walked out with her chocks aflame, her fine eyes blazing, and her head in the air, he felt as if he had been turned to stone, and for the moment stood staring at the door through which she had vanish ed with eves which certainly did not see it or anything, ff he. had been a man of more perception, if he had understood the language of the prize-ring, he would have known that he' was completely knocked out. But the truth was that Marshall Stead, in spite of all his rlcvcrncss, was neither more nor less than that worst of, all tools—a conceited one. He was slv, vain, and naturally bumptious; hut he had earlv found out the advantages of concealing all sorts of feelings and qualities under a mask of smoothness. Me had got round the late Sir...
