MASTER OF ALL BY ALMAZ STOUT Author of "Copper Under the Gold," etc., etc. Published by Arrangement with Cassell's Colonial Press, Melbourne. CHAPTER XIII. The Master Of All. At first the change to Wissenden seemed to do Lady Oweu good. She began to pick up lier old energy and spirits, and ISydney thought aud hoped she had alarmed herself need lessly. But alter the first weeks she 'began once more to flag, and t.'ie "papery" look that had so startled Sydney grew more and more appar ent. Day by day she found greater excuse not to go out far, then not to go. beyond the grounds, and at last, not to get further than, the terrace walk. It came about so gradually that Sydney liardly realised it, till one day she was brought face to face with the truth.

TRIFLES THAT COUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 17 December 1914
TRIFLES THAT COUNT. Good looks are not so difficult to achieve as on© would think. Provide ing she is not deformed, no woman need be plain, if only she takes a pro per pride in her appearance and finds out the best ways of emphasising her good points and minimising her bad ones. Yet few have solved the art of doing this, for few have realised that the veriest trifles make all the differ ence. Many really pretty girls' make themselves look positively plain be- ~ cause they don't know how to dress their hair or how to choose 'becoming hats, and because they will insist on dressing in- colors which are quite un becoming-to their, particular styfle. I Snew a girl of the brunette, sal low-complexioned type, who would in- , sist on dressing In plain, unrelieved white. Now, dead white is trying to all but the fairest of skins. In her case it wag disastrous. It made the worst of the one weak point in her looks—her complexion—taking every scrap of color from her face. No one would have belie...
Some Primitive Remedies. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 17 December 1914
Some Primitive Remedies. Many of our ordinary ailments jaight be avoided IE -we -went out into the garden and picked a handful of rosemary or lavender for use In the house. The essential oils that' give fragrance to these herbs are always escaping into the surrounding atmos phere, 'where they carry on war un bidden and on their - own account against noxious germs. The. list of these pleasant old remedies, so sug gestive of the rose-embowered coun try parsonage of Goldsmith's day or Jane Austen's, is a very long one. Boiling water poured / on an elder blossom is said to cure colds. Many people still take blackcurrant tea for the same purpose. A dock-leaf worn in the sock prevents sore feet. A vinegared ivy leaf or geranium leaf cures corns. The pestiferous fly .may be kept out of the nursery with a bunch of elder leaves. Some say that sweet-peas have the same effect.

Fish as Food. It is stated that :he humble bloater offers I he largest uniouiu of nourish ment for ;i piven ;>rice. and that twu salt herrings coi!':;in as much pro teiu as is requisite ill the daily diet ary of an ordinary working-man. One pound of fresh ln-rrings Is certainly believed to be as sustaining as half a pound of beef costing sixpence. And the cheaper sorts of fish may, by skilful treatment, have a fine flavor evolved in them, and he made as ac ceptable to the sense of .taste as the dearest. Sir James'Crichton-Browne declares that for children fish fur nishes the very stuff that is needed to enable them to grow strong.

Causes of Indigestion. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 17 December 1914
Causes of Indigestion. Doctor W. Soltau Fenwick, lectur ing recently on "Indigestion and Its Prevention" at the Institute of Hy giene, said that the causes of indiges tion were often found, not in the stomach itself, but in some other- or gan. The nervous system 'exerted a powerful influence on digestive pro cesses, every passing emotion indu cing a sudden flow of acid in the case of dyspeptics that' made life tempor arily unbearable. . In early life expo sure to cold or damp was one of the commonest causes of internal catarrh, and he condemned the absurd craze of exposing young children to inclem ent weather as a cause of future dys pepsia.
THE HUMAN VOICE THE WORLD OVER. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 17 December 1914
THE HUMAN VOICE THE WORLD OVER. The voices of the people of Eng land vary much in different s« lions. There are three prominent typos of voice among cultivated people. The, exceedingly courteous, but cold, ciuiet one; the kindly but egotistical voice, usually found among the better class nf merchants and business men; and tii.-: cold, affected, self-assertive tone. There are national as well as sec tional voice characteristics. The Scottish voice is whining, sad, and at the same time, stern. The predo minating qualities ill the Irish tones are warmth, groat emotional inten sity, atul great strength of purpose, coupled with a warm kindliness, and a musical tone of refinemei.t not to be observed in any oilier national ity. The voices of the French people nil press one first with their ft rep. ut h and loudness. This is particularly true of the women, whose tones seem to lack in softness, beauty, and wo manly tenderness moro than any of the nations around them. Thr. voice of a cultivat...
CHAPTER XII. Revelation. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 17 December 1914
CHAPTER XII. Revelation. I The summer was reaching its height and full plenitude, and with the middle of July the season was drawing to a close. The weather was hot and s-ultry, and even early in the morning the air felt used up and tired. "Should you mind very much if we were to go to Wissenden before very long?" said Lady Owen to Sydney one morning, as the latter entered the breakfast-room after the early ride she seldom missed. For a second a blank feeling took possession of Sydney. Wissenden! That meant leaving London, and the park, and—and many things. "If you wish it, of course not," she answered. Lady Owon looked at "her child" without turning her head. She had caught the dull tone, and her heart ached. She knew nothing. Some how lately Sydney did not seem to have very much to talk to her about; there were long silences when they were together which never used to be. But she could read without let terpress. and she had been reading fairly clearly for some time, though she had...
THE POULTRY YARD. HINTS FOR BREEDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Foster Mirror and South Gippsland Shire Advocate — 17 December 1914
THE POULTRY YARD. HINTS FOR BREEDERS. Gather eggs daily. Pino needles make a good i:est. Never breed from wry tall birds. Hot summer weather approaching. Old hens are only drones on the farm. Eggs should be stored in a cool room. Green cut bone good for egg produc tion. Provide shade and shelter for the summer. All hens do not make satisfactory setters. Place the drinking water in a shad ed spot. Cleanliness is essential in the poul try house. An egg is oil" of the most nutritious of foods. If the main bird is sickly, never breed from Wm. Milk chickens are ready for killing at six to eight weeks. C.reen feed should be fed every day in ungrassed runs. The Wyandotte is a great forager and an economical breed. Spatch-cock is a young chicken, .say, from three to four months old. Cholera is brought on by impure food and taint'-d ground. Ventilation ami pure air are neces sary in the poultry house. Straw from tin. stable makes good scratching mat"rial for fowls. The nest of the broody hen...

THE SHADE OF BISMARCK. Till! s'.-cond report of the Belgian Commission of Inquiry into the r.j ports of (Jcrmnii atrocities in Belgium has been issued. It is a collection of appalling facts, which, talien with the first, reports, makes a terrible indict ment against the Gorman Army. Hor rors that can hardly he written down, horrors for which we should nut even a nominally savage race outside the palo of humanity, have been found along the whole track of that army In Belgium. Wo do not even have to do pond on the Belgian odlciul report alone. Nurses and hospital workers of our own liavo seen those things with their own eyes. Women brutally maltreated, children mutilated, civili ans bayoneted, and then burned be fore they were dead, oven wounded soldiers flung into the flames of burn ing houses—those are the results, not of sudden violenco or passion, but of disgraceful principles of war deliber ately inculcated by German military authorities.
