OUR VARYING MOODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
OUR VARYING MOODS. ? The following epigrams are from 'Hints to Lovers,' by Arnold Haul tain : — A woman will risk an interview at an- unreasonable hour, but not in an unseasonable frock. The surest way to fail to please a woman is to let her do what she pleases. What a woman really is nobody knows — least of all herself. With women cruelty is more eas ily borne than kindness. Melancholy attracts women. Generally a woman's sighs are by no means those of remorse. Mistrust a truce between hostile ladies. * The owner of a seraphic face is often owner of a satanic temper. Nevertheless, often enough a spice of diablerie in a woman at once en hances her charms. A woman would rafTier you lied to her concernng herself than that you told her something unpleasant to hear.
TREATMENT FOR DANDRUFF. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
TREATMENT FOR DANDRUFF. ? * ? There are various theories con cerning the cause of dandruff. Many of the best authorities firmly believe that it is caused by microbes. Its treatment depends upon the special form of disease, for no two cases are exactly alike. Certain general suggestions, however, can be given. The scalp should first be cleaned, as in the ordinary shampoo. Tinc ture of green soap is a very good preparation for this purpose. In cases of very dry fiair sodium iodide of sulphur soap gives excell-iut re sults. A pure, white soap is recom mended ; for oily hair. The utmost attention should be paid to the gen eral hygienic care'' of the hair and ccalp.. Mony oaooo -of falling liair are due to this trouble, and so is the loss of hair after a fever in many instances. The shaving of the scalp after a fever is strongly advised against- When you are convinced that your scalp is diseased you should not waste your time in trying to 'doctor' it yourself. There are so many excellent...
STERILISING WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
STERILISING WATER. Here is a good recipe for sterilis ing drinking .water— Put four drops of tincture of iodine *in half a gal lon of water and: permit it to stand at least half anMbour. By the end of that time it wfll be as harmless as distilled water. ' Many persons have not the facilities for distilling water. Boiling it also entails a cer tain amount of trouble. In either case the water is flat and unpleas ant to the taste. The few drops of iodine impart practically no; taste to the water they sterilise, and at the same tin^e they answer every medicinal purpose. ' y , ' -? ' '? - ? V ' : A \ '

A NEW FILE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
A NEW FILE. A new , patent cut file is now being' put on the market. To the general reader one file is much like another, and che style of tooth used passes un noticed. To the file user, how ever, the cutting has a greater sig nificance, and a newly-invented tooth is a matter of considerable interest. The chief feature of the new file is the specially-cut tooth, which has been proved, we are told, to do a much greater amount of work in a given time than the ordinary cut file. It is claimed to be exception ally effective on steel- iron, cast iron, or the tougHest of gun metals, brass, copper, marble, bone, or cel luloid, without clogging.

SWIMMING MADE EASY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
SWIMMING MADE EASY. In order to increase the effective area of a swimmers hand, an in ventor has provided a glove consist: ing of an elastic web formed with cots or stalls in which the fingers and thumb may be inserted. .The glove is also attached to the wrist by means of a strap.

The outer edge of the web is curved down ward, forming a concave or dished surface, whicli-will enable the swim mer to secure a better grip on the water.
TO CLEAN A SPONGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
TO CLEAN A SPONGE. Good sponges are so expensive that the care of- them demands some consideration. When slimy, soak the sponge for ten minutes in a two per cent, solution of perman ganate of potash ; then in a ten per cent, solution of oxalic, acid, with a little sulphuric acid added, for about thirty minutes. Squeeze the sponge, and allow it to soak in a two per cenf. k-lution of carbonate of potash for thirty minutes more; wash it in clean water, and dry. The sponge will then be restored to its original yellow colour and fresh condition

FAITH IN OUR FELLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
FAITH IN OUR FELLOWS. ? ? ? It is well for us to remember sometimes, when we are inclined to rail at the selfishness and unrelia bility of mankind, how many of our most in-portant. interests we trust daily to human skill and faithful ness, trust without question or thought of fear. We board the steamer or the train, with mind in tent only on the business or pleas ure towards which we are speeding, and leave captain or conductor to, look after our personal safety. We post the letter that means for us great loss or gain, and rely upon j the appointed ' agents fo carry -it promptly to its 'destination. We send for a doctor 'to supplement our ignorance with his knowledge, and we [risk our lives upon his care and skill. It' is because the majority of mankind are not , ignoble - and un trustworthy that, all the varied af fairs of life, in a civilised land' move on so: smoothly and peacefully day by day. ?' . _? ' '
MATTERS FEMININE COLUMNS. Honsehold Hints. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
MATTERS FEMININE COLUMNS. HoiseMl Hints. To remove mildew wet .the cloth in soft water and then rub on plenty of soap and salt. Hang on the line in the sun and air for a day or two. This is an infallible recipe. Lemons will keefc^good for weeks if kept in a jug of cold - water. Change tKfe water about once a week, and the lemons will'be found quite fresh when required for use. Boiled potatoes are an excellent substitute for soap when the hands have become soiled by contact with blackened pots and pans. Potato water should, besides, be kept for renovating silk. To clean a japanned tray, by far the best plan is to rub the surface with a little olive oil, and then pol ish it with a piece of flannel. Boil ing water should never be used. If this is done the japanning will wear off or crack. After sweeping a room keep the window and door closed for about an hour before commencing to dust. This allows the dust to settle instead of blowing about in all directions, as it would do if the wind...
A CHICKEN FEED HOPPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
A CHICKEN FEED HOPPER. X ' This hopper has some advantages that other feeding devices do not have. The automatic lid prevents the food getting mixed with dust and dirt.

'WILD SILK.' While ordinary silk is ^prepared from silkworms fed artificially on mulberry leaves, thtre is also a 'wild silk' obtained from a Chinese dwarf oak-tree. Under the curious name of 'water eel,' a certain am ount of this is sent to the silk manu facturing centres of Lyons and Avig non. Some is also sent - to America to be used in making the stuff known as 'radjah.' Owing to its great toughness this 'wild silk' is also used in making the coverings for ballrooms.

DWARF-TREE CULTURE IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 22 November 1910
DVARF-TREE CULTURE IN JAPAN. The art of producing dwarf trees in Japan is a very old one. No re cord of its origin remains, but its secrets are handed down from fath er to son in a few families, and are guairded with scrupulous care. On the outskirts of Tokio the tree artists have formed a little colony .of from twenty to thirtjr houses, and trom this centre their work finds its way to all .parts of the world- In the old days, trees were exported extensive ly to China, to be used in the decora tion of houses and gardens. To day the Celestial taste for the quaint works of art seems to have declined. Yet the little colony in Tokio still flourishes, for of late years it has had to supply the growing demands of Western civilisation. In England and America especially dwarf trees are finding great favor, being hail ed as novel and attractive table dec orations. Exactly how these tiny trees are produced is known only to a score or so of individuals says the 'Windsor Magazine.' It would see...
