WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 March 1914

WOMEN SHOULD WEEP. "For women, a capacity for teara i Is worth cultivating," says a famous "beauty speciality." "Tears—warm and ready ones—are a sure preserva tive of feminine beauty. "Tears are the natural outlet of emo< tion, a ,;o:'t of liquid lightning-rod ; which dissipates excitement and pas- > sion. I "The woman who cannot weep is phe who -jlceeps up her powers of ih'r.king, and whose facia,'@raes and Krey liaivs come reaaily. Not only ! does s lad- of tears score heavily against one's freshness of face, but ir. has a marked effect in general tem perament.

HINTS ON HABITS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 March 1914

HINTS ON HABITS. " : Get out of the habit of being poor. Poverty is no crime, but it is infernal ly bad taste. Besides, lots of people have been cut out of wills simply and solely for being poor. i Being poor is an extremely hard , habit to break yourself of, unless you begin very early in life. If you have been poor for fifty or sixty years, you are practically incurable. Marriages are made in Heaven. That's why all the brightest and 'beet men are waiting. They don't want to throw themselves away on this side of Jordan. Acquire perfect manners. The use of manners is to enable you > to do ex actly what you want without giving: offence. The worst of all faults is to, have none. Beauty is only skin deep. And the heart is very far from the skin. If,, by any chance, you want to be-really good, get out of the habit of being beautiful. Try to gain a reputation greater than you deserve, and then teach your self to deserve it. If you can do this, you won't need any further help from me. ...

"The Dispatch" SATURDAY, MARCH 21. PUBLISHED WEDNESDAY AND SATURDAY Local and General News [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 March 1914

"The Dispatch" SATURDAY, MARCH 21. Published Wednesday and Saturday Local and General News \ The interesting suggestion has been made by Mr. A. A. Billson, M.Iy.A., that the lavish planting of pine trees' in infected districts might be found to check the spread of the weed known as St. Joha's Wort. The theory is that the pines would suck the nourishment out of the soil, and the shedding of the needles would cover the weed and rob it of light and air. Under the combined attack it is believed that the weed would in time succumb. The suggestion is welcomed by ex perts as a possible solution of the problem. The officers of the De partment of Agriculture think it should be tried, and the Conserva tor of Forests stated on Tuesday that the proposal was by no means; one to be laughed at. A son of Mr. O. Shaw, Wurrong, lost his life'when shooting in India recently, through being attacked a panther/. Mr. PhilpotTS, dentist, Terang, will visit Mo^tlake all day on Wed nesday, 1st April (Sale Da...

WOMEN AND WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 March 1914

( WOMEN AND WORK Ali womea who have not home do ties to keep them occupied ought tc have some outside interests. The women who are sweet-tempered and charming and kindly disposed to wards humanity are the busy women •—those fcho work for their living or for charity or are occupied with tha best duties of all—motherhood. An energetic, enthusiastic, ambitious business Voman with a calling, no matter how humble it is, has not the time for the despicable pettiness that goes to make life a burden to all con cerned. The woman who works is inevitably a woman who is broad in her views. Her opinions are not riveted to any one spot. Her point of view is mov able. Her experience in the business mart gives her sympathy for other wo men workers. She has learned to ac cept every friend, new and old, at an honest valuation. She learns to enjoy the society of people who have made something out of life.

The Sportsman's Ducks. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 March 1914

The Sportsman's Ducks. Mrs. S., a lady resident in Scotland,, while out driving one morning, over took a gentleman friend on his way to enjoy a day's duck-shooting. As she passed, he called out, "I'll send you a brace of ducks to-night," and went on his way. But the ducks were wild indeed that day, or Mr. B. was a bad shot, for at night he returned home with only two snipe for his bag. Remembering his promise to Mrs. S., and not wishing that she should know how unsuccess ful he had been, he called his "boy," and told him to go to the market, buy a pair of ducks, and leave them at the house of Mrs. S., with his compliments. Two weeks afterwards he received an invitation to lunch there, and be fore he left his hostess took occasion to thank him for his present. "They are lovely ducks. Won't you come and see them?" said she. "See them!" said the astonished Air. B. "Ha"-ren't you used them yet? I fear they have been hanging too long." "Oh, no," she replied. "Come and see."

THE MECHANICAL AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 21 March 1914

THE MECHANICAL AGE. i Were we required to characterise this age of ours by any simple epithet | we should be tempted to call it, not an Keroical, Devotional, Philosophical or Moral Age, but, above all others, the Mechanical Age. It is the Age of Machinery, in every outward and uni versal sense of that word; the age which, with its whole individual might, forwards, teaches, and practises the great art of adapting means to ends! Nothing is now done directly, or by hand; all is by rule and calculated con trivance. For the simplest operation,, some helps and accompaniments, some cunning, abbreviating process is in readiness. Our old modes of execu I tion are all discredited, and thrown i aside. On every hand, the living arti ; san is driven from his workshop to make room for a speedier, inanimate one.
