CRIS: A PARABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
? „... CRIS: A PARABLE. 'I do hope he will like it; I do hope he will. I'm 'fraid I don't like him very much yet, but I'm going to try hard and love him lots. He, looks very misrable and he's dreifful unkind. He whipped Jimmy Brown last week 'cause he smashed ? his window with his catapult; and only tne aay iore yesterday ne came dut of his house and scolded Molly Barker, only because she was play ing in front of his gate. He was so cross with her, and she cried and cried. Oh, he's a awful angry man. .'He told Jimmy Brown he'd whip ? any little boy or girl who dared to go near him. But I'm not afraid; Em ..not being- naughty, and I know God'll take care of me. He won't let Mr. Vender ne hurt me, I know He won't, 'cause I asked Him to take, care of me,' and I b'lieve ?

Cris looked up at his, friend, and then his great dark eyes roved over ' the common. - 'No,'...
WHY WE SHIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
. WHY WE SHIVER. The interesting reason why many animals are warmer than the sur rounding air occupies the attention of Dr. Fraser Harris in 'Know- ledge.' The author - first of all gives the history of the theories held and' discoveries made from times long before the Christian Era until the present day. Incident ally we learn that, although insects are classed as cold blooded, the tem perature of . the inside of a hive of bees may even in the winter time rise 21deg. C. above, that of the outer air. Birds and mammals keep their temperature the same as a rule in health, that of a mammal when hibernating is nearly the same as its cold environment, the temperature of a newly-born mouse, and of a hu man infant for that matter, goes up and down with that of its surround ings, and in the same category come newly-hatched birds. Dr. Harris ex plains that shivering is the effort on the part of the muscles to increase their heat.
THE DOGS OF CONSTANTINOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
THE DOGS OF CONSTANTI NOPLE. The ownerless, vagrant dogs of Constantinople — the scavengers of the city — are, in spite of their repu tation, the kindest, gentlest members of the dog family, and J:he most in telligent. Such is the opinion of Mr. Alfred Bigelow Paine, who, in 'The Ship-Dwellers,' describes at some length the traits and habits of these animals. They do not wander about alone, but have divided them selves into groups or squads, and their territory hito districts; there is a captain to each of these com panies — 'The captain is a sultan with the power of life arid death over his sub jects. When puppies come along he designates the few — the very few — that are to live, and one mother nurses several of the reduced litters. When a dog get9 too old to be useful in the strenuous round he is syste matically put out of the way by star vation. 'The minister's wife told me that she had tried to feed one of these dying dogs,, but even when the food was placed in front of him he ...
Random Readings. PUBLISHER'S PARLOUR ADVENTURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
Random Readings. PUBLISHER'S PARLOUR AD VENTURES. A London publisher has been re counting some of his adventures witli literary cranks. His collection of callers includes lunatics, excon victs with grievances, Anarchists, 'explosive Indian colonels,' 'ser- vant girls with novelette piffle to read,' and society ladies who im agine that their names spell circu lation. 'A titled lady of no importance, he writes, 'gave me a composition which would not have been a credit to a schoolgirl. 'My social con nections will make this .book a great success, and you had better provide for the sale of twenty or thirty thous and copies.' ' ' I bowed — one has to be polite to Peeresses — a'nd pointed out that I had just put on the market a six shilling novel by an author with a household name, and that I should be lucky to sell two thousand cop ies. 'It took me quite a long time to make her realise that it is better for authoresses to make a name than to have one, however exalted, ready made.' — Wilf...

The Heart of Maureen. (ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) PUBLISHED BY SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT. CHAPTER III.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911

Published By Special Arrangement. CHAPTER lll.—(Coniined.) I 'Well, he flung his coat and hat I down in the hall, and he walked in to the drawing-room, and he said, 'Well, I've come!' And Miss Lorrimer said, in -^quit§ a vexed tone, 'Oh, is -vit you?' And he said, 'Yes — yes, I've come. I told you I should.' And then he shut the door ever so sharply, and, of course, Charlotte didn't hear any more. Well, he stayed a long time. I made some coffee, thinking Miss Lorrimer would ring for it, but she didn't ring at all, and about a quarter past ten they came out into the hall to gether. Now, you know, sir, this , is only a small house — the kitchen door was open — Heaven knows I wasn't listening, but I heard him say, 'Then that's really your last word?' And she said, 'Why, of course it is.' He said, 'Yo...
Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
Household Hints. Too much salt in the gravy may be remedied by putting a pinch of brown sugar in it. This does not hurt the gravy in the least. If the colour has been taken from silk by acids, it may be restored by applying to the spots a little harts horn or sal-volatile. A simple remedy for moths is to place whole cloves among the clothes or pieces of cotton wool or lint sat urated with oil of cloves. A cup of cold water before retir ing and a cup of- hot water in the morning before breakfast work like magic as a cure for indigestion. When making jelly with fresh fruit, the juice should always be allowed to drip into a china or glass dish. A tin one will spoil the col our. Children who cannot be induced to take milk as a beverage will of ten take it willingly in the form of soup, custard, curds and whey, or junket. Simple puddings, boiled, baked, or steamed, made from rice, tapioca, sago, macaroni, or semolina are in expensive, and especially good for children. Macaroni requires b...
MATTERS FEMININE. TELL-TALE MOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
MATTERS FEMININE. TELL-TALE MOUTH. The mouth is more easily affected by the emotions than any other fea ture, and so expresses more clearly the individual temperament. We are able to mask our feelings many times, and to assume an agreeable expression, but the tell-tale mouth, if closely watched, will reveal the mental state though all other signs are hidden. An observant person can more readily judge the disposition by the habitual expression of the mouth when in repose than by studying the other features singly or collec tively.
THE TACTFUL GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
THE TACTFUL GIRL. The girl who would be popular must cultivate tact ! It is not al ways easy to pour oil on troubled waters, but it is very necessary, if domestic and social jars arc to be avoided. Blunt, plain speaking is all very well, but manv «i time sil ence is the wiser course, and the tact ful girl knows just when to speak and when' to be silent. 'Experience teaches sjowly, and at the cost of mistakes,' but we can all trv and cultivate tact, even if the trait has been denied us as a natural gift. The following will be found a few gol den rules to aid the tactless girl : — 1. Learn to hold your tongue, however great the provocation to speech. 2. Hear all, but repeat nothing. 3. Don't be selfish and you will not be uncharitable. 4. Never force or betray a confi dence. .5. Don't interfere in other folks' quarrels. 6. Never mind what others say, form vour own opinions and stick to them. 7. If at first you don't succeed, try again . 8. Avoid argument on any sub ject.
TEARS TO THE RESCUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
TEARS TO THE RESCUE. The habit of crying at every twist and turn of life's highway is fortu nately. nearly obsolete, but there yet remain a few folks who find tears a very marketable commodity in the daily routine! But if only the weepy ones uouiu see inemseives as others seem them, the fount of tears would soon be dry. A red nose beautifies no girl, and red rimmed eyes conduce to positive ugliness. Gifts or concessions that are pur chased at the price of tears art dearly paid for, as one glance in the looking-glass will reveal. Every man hates the sight of tears, but very few now-a-days will give or concede anything to get them dried ! The average man has a wholesome con tempt for tears that are not the out come of grief or pain. To his mind they betray weakness and lack of in tellect, so if girls remembered this they would not be so ready to weep before a male audience. A conquest by tears is a feeble kind of victory, and wholly lacks dignity in its tri umph. The girl who expects ...
LAUNDRY HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
LAUNiDRY HINTS. For bleaching purposes, use pure borax. Dissolve it in boiling water before adding to the water used for steeping the clothes. Borax is also useful for giving a gloss to linen. The proportion necessary is one - tablespoonful to every eight of starch. A stronger bleaching fluid than borax is chloride of lime, but this must be carefully prepared, and used with caution, or it will burn the clothes. Put £lb chloride of lime into a basin, and form it in to a paste witK some cold water. Pour on to it a quart of boiling wa ter, and put it into a jar which has a cover. Stir well with a wooden spoon, and let it be for a couple of days, giving it an occasional stir. Skim thoroughly, and strain twice through the fine muslin, leaving be hind the insoluble lime. lhis clear liquid may . be added to the final water. Use only enough of the solution to make the bleaching water smell slightly. Rinse the art icle several times after using. Keep the preparation tightly corked and in a d...
FATTENING YOUNG LADIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
FATTENING YOUNG LADIES. Throughout the Empire of Mor occo and in Tunis there are villages where the elder members of the ad ult population follow professionally the pursuit of fattening young ladies for the matrimonial market of Bar bary. The .moors, like the Turks and most other Orientals, give a decided preference to 'moonfaced' wives over lean ones, and are more solicitous as to the number of pounds which their brides weigh than about the stock of accomplish ments they possess. A girl is put under the process of fattening when she is about 12 years of age. Her hands are tied behind her, and she is seated on a carpet during so many hours every day, while her papa stands over her with a stick, and her mother at times pops into her mouth a ball of stiff maize por ridge, kneaded up with grease, and just large enough to be swallowed without the patient choking. If the unfortunate girl declines to be stuffed, she is compelled by torture, and gulps down the boluses lest she should be be...
THE NURSERY. ENFORCED BATHS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 31 January 1911
THE NURSERY. ENFORCED BATHS. Very young children should not be forced to go into the bath against their will. Rather should they be gently persuaded and gradually led into going of their own free will. To frighten a little child in the wa ter may result in giving it a distaste for bathing which it is difficult and sometimes impossible to overcome. CHILDREN'S FEET. A baby's foot can be deformed for life by ill-fitting and badly, made shoes and boots. The foot-gear of a child should be most carefully sel l?cti3*I. B,oots should be long en ough and broad enough to allow freedom without actual looseness, and square-toes should always be ^chosen. Shoes lined with . Jaeger cloth tend to prevent chilblains and cold in the winter, but in warm weather sandals without stockings ?are best, since nothing strengthens a foot more than to expose it to the J . sun and air. If corns appear on a baby's foot, they are the result of improperly-fitting boots or shoes, and should be immediately cured. SL...
PLANNING BERLIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911
PLANNING BERLIN. ; Berlin is the largest city in the world built on a plan arranged with method and deliberation^ The great boulevard system of Paris is not to be excelled in all the world, but it does not include all Paris, and the greater part of the French city grew Topsy fashion. Wash ington is ideally constructed to conform with the plans of the fathers, but Wash ington is only one-tenth the size of Ber lin. And then no other city, however perfect its ground plan, has had the good fortune to have as its chief citi zen a king with the absolute right to determine the height of every building erected. Evercising this right, the Kaiser has forced every builder in ev ery street to conform to the uniform regulations, _and this has given Berlin a perfeict skyline.

THE GREATEST ICE-RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 7 February 1911
THE CREATE8T ICE-RIVER. The greatest known ice-river in the world is the Beardraore Glacier on the Antarctic continent, discovered ' and traversed by Lieutenant Shackleton's party. It is a hundred miles long and fifty broad, is shut in between lofty sandstone mountains, and descends 6,000 feet in its course. It forms the only visible outflow from the vast ex panse of - the south polar ice-cap. One of the explorers narrowly escaped fall ing into a' crevasse at least 1,000 feet deep. ' He was saved by his harness.
