II we pursue our investigations further we shall often meet with the surprise that the overburdened woman's house is worse kept, and Its inmates made less comfortable, than is the case with the woman who shows a care-free face to the world. And the difference is a matter of brains and method. The thought of the overburdened housewife came home to me very for cibly the other afternoon on hearing the remark of a shopman. There is one little business house in a street in a suburb that fascinates me. Every thing in the way of saving-work appli ances for the home seems to find ...

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD A GIRL MARRY? [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 10 December 1914

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD A GIRL MARRY? The question fis to whether it is best for a woman to marry early, or after she lias had some experience of life, is one on which no definite con clusion can 1)0 arrived at, for so much depends on circumstances, tempera ment and health, to say nothing of many minor contingencies. Formerly girls married earlier.. Utah now—before'they were twenty years of age, often when just out of the schoolroom. -But that was before the gospel of woman's emancipation be-, came an article of faith to which every woman thinks it necessary to subscribe. In those days girls looked on marriage as the only aim and ob ject of lifo. The restrictions of home were so severe that marriage was welcomed as a deliverance, and as tho beginning of an existence in which a woman found play for her In dividuality, and in which, though with recognise^ limitations, she found some scope for the exercise of her tastes and ambitions. Not that women were stronger then than now—physically th...

CHAPTER X. "For Little Mollie's Sake." [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 10 December 1914

CHAPTER X. "For Little Mollie's Sake." Oil the following Monday week Lady Owen had a bad cold, and was unable to go out, so Sydney drove alone to the large house in one of the most expensive and fashionable squares in London that was Dick's home. In reply to her question if Mrs. ICen yon was at home, the,man-servant ob viously hesitated. "Er—I am not quite sure, madam." Sydney paused as she was passing into the big square hall, whose fur nishing gave the assurance that the owner of the house had taste as well as money. Judging by that alone, the house had evidently not been given into the hands of the furniture man, whose duty it is to exercise his in genuity in seeing how many yards of hideous and costly brocade lie can crowd into a given number of draper ies, and in discovering how stiff and similar he can make the folds there of. "Oh, perhaps I have made a mis take. I understood I -was expected." "If you- will kindly come into the drawing-room, madam, I will go and see." And the ...

"LAY DOWN YOUR ARMS." Romance of a Famous Novel. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 10 December 1914

•■LAY DOWN YOUR ARMS." Romance of a Famous Novel. Seventy-one years' ago there was born in Prague, to an old aristocratic family, a girl who was destined to be come one of the world's greatest apos tles of peace. „Not that she was in any sense a child of abnormal seri ous-miudedness. Indeed, this girl, •who ultimately became the Baroness Bertha Von Suttner and whose re cent death has removed one of the most famous women in modern his tory, was full of the romance of love, and it was really her romantic elope ment and secret marriage to Baron Von Suttner in 1876 which led her to write the novel "Lay Down .Your Arms," which has been read by mil lions in all European languages, and which- led her to devote the rest of her life to the cause of peace with such success that she received in 1905 the Nobel prize for her work in con nection with the fights against arma ments. • Curiously enough, Alfred Nobel, the celebrated Inventor of dynatnite, and the man who left £1,680,000 for the found...

III. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 10 December 1914

III. The weeks dragged on. Chesney pressed his advantage, and received open encouragement from Madge. It looked , as if an engagement; was im pending. Philip, wretched and hope less, expected to hear the news every day. Madge, when she came to the gasworks, either ignored' him or be st wed on him the curtest of curt nods. Then, one day, one of those rare and desperate crises occurred at the gasworks which called for tlie exhi bition of the most supreme heroism, .vlio would rise to the occasion? It happened in this way. Philip had been summoned to the basement washer-house, to assist in certain operations which were in progress. The *)Chief engineer was there, and Chesaey, with several mechanics. Phiiip came to where three men were ' cleaning accumulated tar out of the Vasher—a rectangular box used for washing tarry matter out of crude gas. The operation—an annual one —was almost completed. Two men had affixed the covers on the appara tus, and had screwed it up tight, leav- j ing onl...

THE HAZARD OF THE RACE [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 10 December 1914

THE HAZARD OF THE RACE By Oswald Clifford. "Surely Nightstar will win the Cup | to-day. Th'jrc is nothing in the tieUl to boat him, and lie is in the very pink of condition, ready to race for the proverbial King's ransom. J!e carries high hopes with him; his vic tory or defeat will decide the destiny of two—my own, and that of the girl 1 love, the girl 1 hope to make my wife." Ricliard Warren muttered the words half-aloml, stealing a sideways glance at the girl seated a little dis tance away from him on the grand i stand at Goodwood—the girl in his thoughts. To win her—well, it would change his whole world into Para dise, yet if his horse should fair, he would never dare to speak to her words that only honor had kept back so long. For how could a rulne'd man dare ask her to share'his bankrupt life? Handsome, reckless Richard War ren was bitterly regretting the mud dle he had made of his life during the last few years that had passed since ' his inheritance of a fortune that he j had...

A MAGISTRATE'S PRESENCE OF V MIND. On tiu; outbreak of the Sepoy .Mu tiny, tiio magistrate in charge of lianda was the only European left in Lhe town, the other residents having already sought refuse in FuUehpoor. The Nawab of Handa. although at heart in sympathy with the mutineers. vet preserved an appearance of loyal ty. The magistrate had been in formed that a rising was imminent, and weni to the Nawab to exhort him to use all possible intliienee with the people. ICven as they sat. talking there reached them a murmur from the town without, swelling into a shout as the tumult came nearer. A dead silence fell iu the room, ami, looking up. the magistrate observed a smile on the !;e'e of the Xawah. tie knew 111e11 that his only hope lay in prompt act ion.

City v. Couutry. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 10 December 1914

City v. Couutry. The attack which some city I interests aro making on the Country Roads' Board is charac-1 toristie of tho attitude which a section of tho capitalists and others adopt, towards the great rural industries. As is well known the great main roads throughout, tho Stato are so much out of order that tho labour and expense of carting produce is very groat. To deal with the trouble the Roads' Eoard has had a certain sum of money placed at its disposal and it seems to be loyally trying to expend its funds so that tho farmers will have their troubles lightened as much as possible. If the money is frittered away by paying fancy prices either for plant or services the roads will suffer in quality and the cartage of produce be. in creased in cost. One would think that while this country is passing through the present droughty crisis everything would be done to help the farming industries by enabling them to get their machinery and roads as cheaply as possible. Country interests h...

District Flews. STONY CREEK. On Wednesday evening last a concert was given in the Stony Creek Hall by the State School scholars, the object being to raise funds for the purchase of an organ for tlpe school. The pro gramme opened with a pianoforte solo by Miss Marjory Helms, fol lowed by a lengthy list of child ren's items, including solos, choruses, action songs, rod drill, marches, &c., and all the children carried out their parts very pleasingly, special credit being due to Misses Eileen O'Connor Marjory and Nina Helms. Miss Maguire, the teacher, deserves great credit, as the results could only have been obtained by skil ful and patient training. During the evening the little Misses O'Connor played a violin duet, entitled " Norwegian Cradle Song." Miss Russell recited " My Husband The Inventor," and visitors who assisted included the following:—Mr and Mrs Fry, of Melbourne, a violin and piano duet, " Hearts and Flowers " ; Mr Black, of Dollar, sang " Good bye, Nellie Darli...
