FOOTBALL. Fighting for the Premiership. Queenscliff Steadily Advancing. A Keen Struggle Expected. Teams Prepared for Hard Battles. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914

FOOTBALL. Fighting for the Premiership. Queenscliff Steadily Advancing. A Keen Struggle Expected. Teams Prepared for Hard Battles. The result of last Saturday's games has given the premiership list an interesting appearance. Queenscliff and Portarlington have become level, while Artillery have advanced within foiur points of the Engineers. No one can yet say who is likely to be premiers, as the season is just about half over, and each of the teams are showing fair chances of carrying off the district honors. It would be wrong to say that this team or that team has no chance, as by the present appearances all are in it. Great progress has- been made by last year's premiers. Their team has been largely strengthened by the inclusion of such players as Knights, Mitchell and Mills, and the vast improvement shown by several other players. For some time Ports have held a good lead on the premiership list, but have now fallen a few matches, and their outlook at present, judged by the standa...

HOW WIVES ARE WON. QUEER WAYS OF COURTING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914

HOW WIVES ARE WON. QUEER WAYS OF COURTING. '"The way of a man with a maid" Is always a thing,worth noting; also the various methods of courtship which prevail in different parts of the world. According to the nationality of your best girl your courtship system should be organised. _Iin Roumanfa ofnce- every year, a fair of nirtriageable girls is held. The girl, with her relations, gets into a waggonl which also contains her dowry-linen, furniture, and household matters--and all set off for the fair. When they arrive, the girls are drawn up in one line and the men in another, with their parents behind them. Then, if a young man' likesn the look of any particular girl he steps out of the line, goes up to her and en ters into talk with her, while his parents and her parents compare dotes as to their possessions and their circumstances in life. If all is found satisfactory, the couple are married then and there, and the bride is driven away by her husband to her new home. The custom in'...

Cleopatra Wasn't Handsome. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914

Geoparui Wans Fi lansoiM. Mrs. Lew Wallace has been writing a hew book which she calls "The Repose in Egypt." In it she discusses the Pyra mids, Suez, and Sinai, the Obelisks and Alexandria, and, in connection with her account of the latter city, she tells some entertaining things regarding Cleopatra, who, once in the tropical airs of that aid city, rode on swift camels and floated in gilded barges with Antony, and, after years of revel, she was buried there, with imperial pomp, in his tomb. For women who erroneously think that beauty alone pleases, Mrs. Wallace pictures Cleopatra as bewitching in manners, but not personally even pretty. She had command of seven languages, and she knew how to flatter the vanity of men by adapting herself to their varying moods and exerting herself to be fascinating. Her whole aim and study was to please and her voice was like a musical instrument tuned with many strings. The secret d~ her success with Antony was that she~ gave him no time to thing, ...

Sunday Corner. Grace for the Day. God does not give us his grace as hle gives his sunshine-pouring it out on all alike. He disci iminates in spiritual blessings. He gives strength according to cur need. His. eye is ever on us in tender, watchful love, and what we need at the time he supplies. He gives us grace for grace. When one grace is exhausted another is ready. The grace is always timely. It is not given in large store in advance of the need, bnt is ready always in time. It may not always be what we wish, but it is always what we really want. re "n ?m . .,

ALL IN VAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914

A.. L IN VAINf A young couple had taken a house in an exclusive neighbourhood, and wished to make a good impression at the very beginning of their social ca reer. They were handicapped, how ever, by the difficulty of securing good servants. They finally secured one, Norah, a very recent arrival from County Kerry, but the best they could find. This maid's duty was to answer the front door-bell and carry the cards of any visitors to her mis tress. She was rehearsed repeatedly in ler role, her mistress telling her exactly what to say and how to carry her silver salver, but, in spite of the training, Norah's mistress awaited the hour of her first dinner party with trepidation, and at the first sound of the door-bell she could not resist the impulse to listen at the, head of the stairs. Norah rushed to the door excitedly, without her salver, but as she opened it and saw visitor standing .there, she recollected her instructions, and, throwing up her hands, exclaimed, in a voice of heartbr...

BRIDES IN QUEER PREDICAMENTS. Strange Honeymoons that led to Happiness. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914

BRIDlES IN QUEER PRE-. DICAMENTS. • --'-- Strange Honeymoons that led to Happiness. "Happy is the bride that the sun shines on," runs the old saying, the deeper meaning of which, according to some people, is that every mis hap at a wedding is an omen of bad fortune and future unhappiness. Nevertheless there are times when the most unusual wedding incidents and the unhappiest of honeymoons, have resulted in happy marriages. Take, for instance, the case recently repc:rted from Bordeaux of a young man who, two years. ago, was, like Edmund .Dantes in "The Count of Monte Cristo," arrested when about to sign the marriage contract with - a girl to whom he had been be trothed for five years. The charge. brought against him was one of forgery. The evidence was very strong, but the girl believed in her lo ..er and insisted on the marriage. The authorities gave the necessary, permission, and the couple were mar rie,~ before the trial- came off. AT THE ELEVENTH HOUR. Never was there a stranger ...

A PINERO STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914

W. PINERO BTORY. The latest Pinero story is of a 'conversation which was overheard at a gathering of theatrical people. "I am told," said one of the ladies pre pent, "that Mr. - (mentioning: a certain comedian) is a man *who writes to his wife by every post." "Yes," said a well-known actress, "'he writes a lot of flummery about .the agony of absence, but he has never sent her a penny. Do you call that kindness ?" "Decidedly ! " said Sir 'Arthur. "Unremitting kindness." - ?' D.aily 'Sketch." Oily marks -on the paper which defy the crumb cure may be got rid of by mixing a little pipeclay into a cream -painting this mixture over the spot, allowing *It to dry thoroughly, and .?t?en wiping it off. i. --------;---, fA good way to whiten clothes that (have become a bad colour is to put two. or threef'slices of lemon in the c?opper with the clothes.

ARE OUR GIRLS TOO FREE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 11 July 1914

ARE OUR GIRLS TOO FREE. The question of whether ithe girls of Australia and New Zealand are allowed too much freedom if raised by the editor of 'Everylady's Journal,' and answered in the July issue by Professor Rentoul, Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Australia; Mr Paris Nesbit, K.C.; Mr Higgs, M.P.; and Mrs Dr. O.'Hara. Professor Rentoul does not think that our girls are allowed too much freedom. Mr Paris Nesbit does not think it would be possible to allow our girls too much freedom, and the Federal member for Capiicornia believes that 'a girl should have liberty, providing parents take the trouble to advise of dangers that attend increased liberty. There is far more to be feared from bringing a child up as a plant in a hothouse, unexposed to any of the winds that blow. I think, if the parents will only. take their girls into their confidence at an.age when children are abie to appreciate advice on certain topics, that the young woman are bound to come out all right.

" Their uniforms are neat," said the colonel, " and their instruments are nicely -polished and kept in order, but there is one improvement that I must insist upon." W" "What is it, colonel ?" "You must train your men, when they perform, to lift their fingers all at exactly the same time and at regular; intervals on their instruments, so-one, two ! one, two !"
