Fear in Children. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 February 1898
Fear in Children. James Sully's ' Studies of Childhood' include a discussion of tbe element of fear and Incidentally of fear of the dark, and the facility with which a child conies to see faces and animal forms in the lines of a crackled eeillnpr or the veining of a piece of. marble. .These slight and mo mentary differences of blackness, these fleeting rudiments of a pattern, may serve as a sensuous base for the projected images ; the child's excited fancy sees in these faint: differentiations of the black, formless waste definite forms. Tht-se will naturally be tbe forms with which be is most familiar, and since his fancy is tinged with melancholy they will, of course, be gloomy and disturbing forms. Hence we may expect to hear of children seeing Hie forms of terrifying living things in the dark. Here is an instruct ive case.

' No.' And so the questioning- continued In tbe same strain for nearly a quarter of an hour, until be evidently became satis fied with what, lie bad r.licitt-d, and be thought him of giving the desired in formation in return.

The Need for Regular Occupation. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 12 February 1898
The Need for Regular Occupation. Nearly all women are subject to fits of depression and low spirits, and only those who have suffered from them know bow hard they me to fight against. Why arc our girls depressed ? In nine cases out of ten I think we may trace the cause to want of regular occupation and interest in life generally. Unfortunately, so many girls are not obliged to do any thing- particular ; if they dress well, dance, play tennis, and entertain visi tors, and are, in fact, social successes, they think they have done all that is re quired of them. The mothers who allow their girls to waste and fritter away the best years of their lives are not only foolish, but cruel, though they imagine they are kindness itrelf. There if no greater mistake In the world than for girls to spend their lives waiting for husbands, who may, or may not come, as tlie case may be. All girls cannot many — there are not men enough, to begin with, and of those not all are so disposed. To be truly ha...

In Praise of Quassia. [Newspaper Article] — The Murrurundi Times and Liverpool Plains Gazette — 19 February 1898
III Praise of Ouasgia. In quassia we have medicine that has many virtues independent of those of a simple and safe tonic. It possesses, * unlike - most other vegetable bitters, baldly any power to produce constipa tion, or give disagreeable bead symp toms, like those (hat oflcn follow quinine.
