HINTS FOR YOUR PHOTOGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 8 May 1914

HINTS FOR YOUR PHOTOGRAPH. Wear the sort of dress you'usually do when being photographed. You can't make a bigger mistake than to don some sort of get-up that you're totally unaccustomed to. If you'ro In the habit of wearing a stiff collar, don't go and get "taken" in a loose necked bodice. Avoid violent contrasts in color or light and shade in your attire. Plain colors are best for gowns, and dra peries usually come out much better than frills and flounces. It you have a good figure, take care to preserve a clear outline. If not, never be taken full length (says an .xpert). Furs usually look well, but unless care is taken of the way they are dis posed, they are apt to be rather over, whelming. Much jewellery is a mistake, but one or two really good things lnnlt rery well. A line string of pearla . alwavs safe ro wear

WOMEN AND GAMES. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 8 May 1914

WOMEN AND GAME3. The greater part of what one reads, chiefly in letters to the papers, about the modern addiction of girls and wo men to games like golf and hockey being productive of ganntness and hardness and ugliness, is absolute non sense. It assumes quite wrongly that athletic exercise produces big muscles, and big bones, and angles, and I don't ? V""'.'' "'hut; "eally, it nothir^ at a.. can bo descerned !n the ap pearance of shaj,i3 or build. I: does nol alter the shape of the muscular de velopment. What it does is to improve the power of the heart and the active quality of the muscles. No girl who .was not gaunt and ugly before was made so by games; and no girl who was beautiful before was ever made ugly by games-the thing is impos lble and absurd.

HITTING IT OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 8 May 1914

\ HITTING IT OFF. "Young Mr. and Mrs. So-and-So don't quite hit It off," say the neighbors. The course of true love ran excep tionally smoothly during courtship. A; maid and bachelor both Intended to hit the bullseye in the matrimonial tar get; but something "misfired," and things went wrong. What Is the secret of a "htt-or-mlss'' marriage? Perhaps modern young men and maidens expect life to be satin-lined, like their luxurious overcoats. Who people wore hair shirts for self-disci pline they didn't throw up the sponge, and declare marriage a failure at the first domestic tiff. But the twentieth century bride rush es off to a magistrate and begs for a legal separation if her husband smokes a cigarette in the drawing-room, or for gets to wipe his muddy boots on the doormat. Most young couples start with the idea of "a good-time ma' riage." Life, like the bridal proces sion from the altar, is to bo strewn ?with confetti, congratulations, and comforts. The shaving-water is always going ...

The Wife's Method. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 8 May 1914

.The Wife's Method. The other evening, as a muscular person was passing a house, a lady who stood at the gate called to him: "Sir, I appeal to you to protect me!" "What's the matter," he asked, as he stopped short. "There's a man In the house, and he wouldn't go out of doors when I ordered him to." "He wouldn't eh? We'll see about that." Thereupon the man gave the woman his coat to hold and rushed into the house. He found a man at the "supper-table, and look him by the neck, and remarked, "Nice style of a gentleman you are, eh? Come out o' this, or I'll break every bone in your body." The man fought, and it was not until a chair had been broken and Liie table upset that he was hauled out by the legs and given a fling through the gates. "Now, then you brass-faced old trump, you move, or I'll finish you." "Tramp! Tramp!" shouted the vic tim, as ha got up. "I'm no tramp! I awn this property and live in thl» house." "You do?"

LIVE IN THE PRESENT. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 8 May 1914

LIVE IN THE PRESENT. The man who lives exclusively tn Che future can hardly be said to live at all. He tastes nothing; he enjoys nothing, unless it be anticipation, and. in the minds of those practical men who turn their air castles into solid rock, anticipation is so closely associ ated with preparation that there is scant room lor the enjoyment of a dream. When someone asked Napoleon nonaparte whether he was not happy m the midst of the victories that crowned his first campaign in Italy, he replied that he had in those days no lime to think of fame. And so it was, perhaps, throughout his active career. There was always mother move to be made on hU chess board, and he achieved no victory which he regarded as final. But, it may be asked, if existence is to be passed wholly in preparation, when may one expect to realise life itself? This is a question that de serves to be seriously considered. The utilitarians easily make out a seem ingly strong statement of their view of existence. ...

With great pluckinoss, two of the three pretty daughters of the house turn* crt to and cooked the luncheon, and the third, di^uised in a cap and apron, posed as parlour-maid. Weeks after, at a function in town, both families met, and the head of the distinguished branch expressed to the third sister his regret that she had not been ut homo on the occasion of his visit.

One of the 'Weaker Sex.' Under the now Republican regime the position of the Chinese woman has beon notably improved, nomi nally at least : but It is highly Iinprobablo that any of the ad vanced" ladies of modern 'China will over wlerd half tho influenco pos sessed by tho old "Empress-Mother" Tseu-Hsi, tho real ruler of tho Celes tial Empire for many years. Her life was one long, though un edif ying, melodrama. The daughter of a mandarin, born on November 17, 1834, she had a sister who was wedded to Princo Cliouon. 'This Imperial connection fired Tseu llsi's ambition ; she managed to nt tract the Emperor's attention, and" became one of his numerous wives. The birth of her son, ? Tsai-Chouen (the Quintessence of Purity) fulfilled her fondest hopes, and henceforth her baleful career really began. In 18G0 Tseu-Usi poisoned tho Emperor, anil declared herself "Em presa-Mother" and virtual monarch of China. Her first delicate atten tion to her deceased husband's rela tives was to send eac...

Return of the Rubber Boom. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 8 May 1914

Return of the Rubber Boom. (By A. STAINS MANDBRS.) It la really a wonderful substance; is rubber. Consider what it is in the beginning-just milk flowing from the trees that have been slash ed by the native workers. Yet from this liquid we get a aubstace of enormous strength, durability, and elasticity. I always liken rubber to cheese. Jt is milk to begin with; it is made to curdle like milk-by throwing salt into it-and, liko cheese, you get it in fill shapes, sizes, colours, and qualities. If wo don't actually eat rubber, it is doubtful if wo could now live without it. \ "It is extraordinary when one comcs to think of tho enormous number of uses to which rubber is put. We find it not only in our own homes at every turn, but we find it on our way from our homes to our business ; we see rubbor at every stage, and when we get to our business we find it in our oflicos. C'erlninly wo cannot livo without rubber, and I am not sure that we arc able to dio without the as sistance of rubber."...
