Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
A -GOOf1fEM EDY. If a child slhould- have the misfortune to contract ringworl, shave off -the hair round the affected part, and paint it:-with iodine. This is a very good remedy. A coating should be applied every ddy un til a cure is effected. If, however, she has contracted it very badly, medical ad vice should. at once be sought. - 'fanuy mothers, at the -first appearanlce of nits .in a child's hair, will ato once ruthlessly shave off thle little one'sotloeks, however long and luxuriant their growth. This is by no means necessary, as there are many ointmneunts and preparations now son the market which are effective in destroying the parasites after one or two appDlications only. Be careful, horw over, to use a preparatioll which does no harm to the roots of the hair. --Very often children lose large quantitiesR of hair as a result of tile applicatiqn of no drastic a remedy.

IANDfS AND .NAILS: Children should be trained early to take great catre of their nails.

USEFUL HINTS CARE OF THE CHILD. SOME USEFUL HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
UCSEIUI. H4INI'S OARE .OF THE CHILD':'- - SOME USEFUL HINTS. Many mothers wonder why their daugh ters who had pretty, soft, luxuriant hair Inl early childhood begin to lose it at the age of 13, and have very scanty locks when they grow up. This is very often due to neglect of the hair during. in fancy and early childhood." A baby's hair should be washed every day, dried with a soft towel, and brushed with a soft brush. As soon as the hair begins to grow long, however; this daily washing should be discontinued. For a child of 3 or 4, .a shampoo once a week is quite enough. Do not let the little mite run about with her 'hair damp. This is a. frequent .cause of cold which many mothers are apt to overlook... It is really unwise to let a' tiny girl's hair grow too long. Keep.it.w.ell trimimed and, even at the ends. It is very in jurious also to plait a oung "child's ..hair in several tight plaits before 'sli goes to bed at night. If it must be curled or waved it is quite easy to do -it u...

Railway Passengers and Cattle Trucks. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
Railway Passengers and Cattle Trucks. Railway passengers travelling on the near-suburban holiday lines com plain bitterly that, after having paid first class fares, they were invited to step into cattle trucks, with all the discomforts, plus the cattle stink. Some refused to use their tickets, uand indignantly demanded their repurchase at face value from the ticket sellers. Others submitted to the imposition. But those who did not use their tickets have been writing indignant letters n "the voices of the mornig," aver -in.g that, as the Railway Depa'rtnm'nt l.s' travellers fined for riding on see mid class tickets in first class carriages, .hen it would be a fair proposition ,hat the department should be prose •iuted and fined for imposing upon first class passengers by requiring them to rido in third class rolling stock.

A Mothers' and Fathers' Question. [Newspaper Article] — Flemington Spectator — 1 January 1914
A Mothers' and Fathers' Question. We commend to the consideration of every mother and father in Essendon, as well as to that of every patriotic citizen, the perusal of a special article in another column, advocating whole-hearted support and work in the cause of the fete to be held in Queen's Park, at the end of March, to assist in promoting the interests and welfare of Essendon's boys under military tralning. The article, under the heading of "Qarden Fete," deals exhaustively with s?ery aspect of heo question, and the ground it traverses cannot well be Oct a iut in a brief- paragraph. One of the I, oi aims is to raise money for purchaEi g brass instruments for a local. military band; and then therre are iniumerable other requirements for wlich mponey iyl be wanted, in order that Essendion's boys may be equipped in such a way as will .make them proud of being sold"ers, and lot us hope, of being Essendonia' Wo trust the article will be closely read by every adult in Essondon. . -
