CHARMS OF THE CAT ] POI'UIjA It PETS, . (By n Cnt Lover). "The best way to keep a5cat is.to let it keep Itself," seems to be the. general rule among most owners of,that popu lar pet/ This, no doubt, may be all very well for the ncmUoscript "tabbies" and "blacks'" which inhabit the majo rity of homes, but it is a most disas trous treatment for all the beautiful highly bred crcaturos who aro gradu ally ousting the common cat from aris tocratic houses. Once one has felt the artistic delight of owning a lovely blue, smoke, white, or other Persian, it Ja almost impossible to be satisfied again with tho ordinary x short-haired mon firel. There Is a general impression that all pure-bred cats are extremely delicate. This wrong Idea is due to tho fact that so many people aro entirely ignoran^ as to the proper methods of feeding and keeping cats generally. They either let them run wild and feed them Irregu larly (If at all), or go to tho other ex treme and coddle them as if they were as tende...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 28 March 1914
II. Leila watched the distant land with a woman's eyes which were full of questioning. The long day on board the Chris tabel bad brought with it a meas ure of reason which would now be sifted with a woman's logic.. She had fled from Newcastle in an hour of mad panic.. Her only desire had been to save the child from tlio ma chinations of those whom she be lieved to be her enemies. Just as when she staked all upon Desdy's liberty, when she liad dolled the worst threats of the law and had entered Into a conspiracy from which she must emergo a criminal, so in Ireland had she cared nothing for any of the consequences from which might attend an Immediate and a successful flight.. Despair liad car ried her to the Christabel as to the only haven the night could show her. Here to-day she reckoned with the troublo and asked herself what she had done. Surely now she was an outcast from the world! She lmtl little money, and a month must pass be fore the trustees would send her the miserable pit...

WIT AND WISDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 28 March 1914
WIT AND WISDOM. The world seldom watches o man when he Is doing good. Too many strings to a bow will never make a marriage tie. A maii need not fear competition when he Is in love with himself. l'cople with small minds seldom have occasion to change them. A contented mind may be a 'feast, •bnt feasts nre Indigestible things. Many a man in the swim finds it difficult to keep his head above water. If you want work well done, select a busy man—the other kind has no time. The folly of love is Insecurity; peo ple are always cither falling in or out of it, Although otherwise stingy, a man may be willing to lend a helping hand to himself. About two-thirds of the average man's laughter Is inspired by his own alleged wit. Love makes the world go round— perhaps that Js why the young folk are so giddy. The man that a woman says she does not care for Is generally the one she cries over. The telephone girl may truthfully say that she Is connected with the best families. Instinct is now described...
