BUSINESS COURTSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 16 April 1914
BUSINESS COURTSHIP. An amusing case was once decided in a Frankfort police court. It ap pears that a cook, no longer quite young, was courted by a tailor some what younger than she. On Sun days, and occasionally during the week, the gallant lover was in the habit of taking his lady for extended promenades and visits to restaurants, where the latter always paid the ex penses. She also provided him re gularly with his supper. Presently, however, the awful truth was brought home to the cook that she was not the only friend on whom the man of the scissors and the need le lavished his affections. Nothing loth, she went to the nearest police court, suing the faithless one for all the expenses of the clandestine meals provided by her, and all the money spent when "walking out" with him. The tailor, however, was once again too much for her. Instead of appearing before the tribunal as a repentant sinner, he came nto court with a long bill in his hand, on which was an account of the time lost...
Meeting the Difficulty. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 16 April 1914
Meeting the Difficulty. A good story is told of a rworthy Quaker who lived in a country town. The friend was rich and ib~nevolent, -and his means were put in frequent requisition for purposes of local char ity or usefulness. The townspople wanted to rebuild their parish church and a committee was appointed to raise funds. It was agreed that the Quaker could not be asked to sub scribe towards an object so contrary to his principles; 'but then, on the other hand, so true a friend to the town Imight take it amiss if he were not at least consulted on a matter of such general interest. So one- of their number went and explained to him their project the old church was to be removed, and such and such steps taken towards the construction cf a new one. "Thee wast right," said the Quak. er, "in supposing that my principles would not allow me to assist in buill ing a church. But didst thee not say something about pulling down a church? Thee mayst put my name down for a hundred pounds to pull ...
STRANGE HONEYMOONS. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 16 April 1914
STRANGE HONEYMOOIqS. Surely one of the strangest, was that of an. American' couple 'wih, 1ln` June of. last year, set out from New* York harbor . on a honeymdon Itriip-to the Bermuda Islands in a tiny "cockle shell" boat some 12ft. long by 3ft. broad. No less thrilling a honeymoon ex perience *was that of a Mr. and Mrs. Edgar, who were married in Peking ih the Legation chapel, on the day preceding that on. which the1Boxer. riots broke out, and who, perforce, had to spend the first few 'weeks of their married life prisoners in the in vested city, witnessing many of the horrors of the rebellion, and going in daily fear of assassination. Another couple on the Continent, immediately after the marriage knot was tied, started off by balloon for England. Leaving 'Paris 'at four o'clock in the afternoon, they man aged to land across the Chan nel the following morning, -after a somewhat exciting time among the clouds. Then an adventurous pair of Swiss lovers, both keen mountaineers, chose th...
BADLY-DRESSED QUEENS. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 16 April 1914
BADLY-DRESSED QUEENS.* It has been often asserted by those who know that scarcely one royal lady in Europe is really well dressed. Some of the younger royalties wear dresses too old for their years, and some of the older garb themselves in a fashion that is too young. The Empress of Germany is the best-dressed woman on a Eiuropean throne.. Ene does not 'buy her dresses in Paris, 'but in Berlin, London and Vienna.' Counting every item, the Kaiserin spends about £2000 a year on dress. The Queen of 'Holland is said to be the worst-dressed sove reign. In spite of this, she manages to spend about twice as much on her clothes as does Queen Mary. The former spends about £4000 a year, whilst the latter spends, on an aver age, about £2000. Queen Wilhelmina is accused of showing very bad taste in the choice of her frocks and hats. However, she has some excuse, for in loyalty to her own country she only eliploys Dutch dressmakers, and who ever heard of a noted Dutch modiste? The costumes and h...
TAKE A HOT FOOT-BATH BEFORE GOING TO BED. [Newspaper Article] — Swan Hill Guardian and Lake Boga Advocate — 16 April 1914
TAKE A HOT FOOT-BATH BEFORE GOING TO BED. There is .a mode of using hot wa ter, which is an exceedingly valuable one, according to the late Sir Hen ry. Thompson in "Diet in Relation to Age and Activity." It is the habit of taking a hot foot-bath every night before going to bed, for about ten or twelve milinutes as hot -as it can be borne. The effect of this on the feet, which should be immersed over thq ankle, is to fill their vessels with blood rendered apparent by their deep red color-and this affords relief;* by withdrawing it from the brain. -Es pe~ially after intellectual activity re suiting from public life, etc., as above referred to, also after prolong ed study or literary labor at night, the tranquillising effect on the ner vous system is very remarkable, and ulet sleep is promoted. Let the high est teniberature which can be borne be maintained for at least ten minutes by repeated small additions from the hot-water can close at hand. 1 Accordiuh to Paris statistics, out of ...
