,.f RJ' .~q MRS WICKS ON MARRYING YOUNG. It's not i question you can settle bght off, as the boy said when some me asked him ef he loved his father. sow, to my thinkin', marryin' young's m excellent thing for a young man.

Nothin'll nake a young man feel his own little ness, fer instance, like givin' him a are to lay an' light or a table to set, of he's not been used to them. An' a wif'll steady him, too, an' keep aim from mischief. There's nothin .ike a bit of real love in a young fel ler's heart fer bringin' him home :eg'lar at nights an' makin' him work .erscverin' fer a rise an' put by fer i rainy day.

THEY ARE CURIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 17 April 1914
THEY ARE CURIOUS. Many wild animals are very inquisi. :vie. The polar bear is said to be tttracted by anything out of the com. non. An,Arctic explorer declares that one vas so fascinated by a steamer that .n her eagerness to find out what the trange thing was she came so near :t that both she and her two cubs sere killeds Sailors, when chased by polar bears, h'ave taken advnutage of this habit to secure their own safety. During their flight they thlrow away anything, .iuch as a handk.:rchief or other ar ticle-gaily color-d for choice. The bear cannot pass it. But while the animal is b::sy examining the thing the seamen are gaining ground uid escaping from danger. .. Of course in some cases it is not Inere curiosity that provokes the bear :o waste time, but a desire on its part i, learn whether the strance objec; nay not be something harmful.
POPULAR ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 17 April 1914
POPULAR ERRORS. It is a popular sanitary error, sayL t contemporary, to think that the nore a man eats the fatter and ,tronger he will become. To beiieve that the more hours :hildren study the faster they learn. To conclude that, if exercise is good, ;he more violent the more good is lone. To imagine that every hour taken rom sleep is an hour gained. To act on the presumption that the ;malest room in the house is large :nough to sleep in. To imagine that whatever remedy auses one to feel immediately better a good for the system, without re :ard to the ulterior effects. 'io eat without an appetite, or to •ontinue after it has been satisfied, lerely to gratify the taste. To eat a hearty supper at the ex e'se, of a whole night of disturbed :ecp and weary waking in the morn f g.

Mrs. Burke ras spoken of. even by her own sex, x .11 tlhat was beaut'fi!l and amiabl moilg women. But it was not a beau iful face, no!r ainced tai c, nor mncnta ulture, that gave tl;is woman her won el ful influence over thE statesman :he secret of her po\:wer lay in her houghtful devotion and intelligent sym ,athy. Mrs. Burke kept her husband's ecounts, regulated his pecuniary tran actions, sdothed his natural irritation: .nd made his home happy, that he .iight remain free and elastic for hi, .ublic duties.

OUR SOCIAL ENTERTAINMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 21 April 1914
OUR SOCIAL ENTERTAINMENTS. One reason why we fail to take al he comfort and enjoyment we might rom our friends and neighbours is tht,, re are all ambitious to make our socia& ntertainments too elaborate. They oon become a burden and an expen, o all but the very Well-to-do. Nobcd: as satisfactorily explained why the act f eatingtogether promotes good fellow hip, but we all know that it does 'o secure this result, however, it is not n the least necessary that what iT aten be rare or expensive. A little loney will go a long way in pleasant .ntortaining, if we are sensible enough o make it very simple, and lot good eeling largely take the place of mone! a the ordering of our hospitality. 0
CANDID GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 21 April 1914
CANDID GIRLS. Some girls are proud of saying that they never stoop to subterfuge, and are candour itself. They are verS complacent over the fact, and call it a virtue. This is all very well, and though desiring always to speak the truth, and nothing but the truth, i' is not right to do so at the expense of other people's feelings. To go abou: the world uttering pointed officious home truths is not necessary, and has no element of kindness in it. Suce girls are not popular, and their ad vent is usually dreaded. And though popularity is not everything, a girl who is a favorite is generally kind courteous,.and gentle, and those arc the virtues to strive for. Sincerity is one thing, over-candour quite another and there is not the slightest necessity to go into society with such a weapon to fell your acquaintances. If you Sre asked for your advice, give it, but use suavity?')and gentle words, and give it in shch a manner that no of. fence can be taken. Do not go about acting the role of ...

The teeth, should be cleaned all or er. Cleansing the mouth should be practised after every meal with the same regularity with which the childi gets its daily bath. Especially is the tooth toilet necessary after the last meal of the day, because more mis chief is done in the night while the tongue and jaws are at rest than at any other period.

TO WASH LACE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Farmers Journal — 21 April 1914
TO WASH LACE. In these days when lace is used fnr everything, and on everything, it ia necessary to know the best way to wash this delicate fabrio, for soiled lace is fatal to the appearance of any gown. however exquisite. If a womrn n values her lace she will wash it herself; it is no trouble, and the result is eminently satisfactory. The lace article should first be gently shaken to free it of all loose dust, then plunged into a basin of warm water with a little borax. It is a great mistake to rub lace, however gently; it is so apt to tear the fine stitches; it is best merely to dab it about in the water until it is quite clean. When all the dirt has come iway it should be thoroughly rinsed in pure water, and if a cream or dark shade is desired, it must he pas'ed Ihrough water in which some coffee essence has been pat. Having obtain. rd the exact tint, the nlace must bl ently pulled out and wound round a ig glass bottle, taking care that thbo right aide is on the outside. If tbhe ...
