HEALTH AND THE COMPLEXION. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 7 November 1914
" HEALTH AND THE COM PLEXION. Perfect health, which constitutes beauty, ought to be within the reach of every woman whose nmeans enable her' to command plain, whole some food, regular employment, com fortable sleeping quarters, a fair amount of exercise, a.nd a contented mind. This last goes a very long way, and a' sensible occupation is equally desirable.. There is nothing worse for the complexion than tight lacing, tight-gartering, or the wecar- ing of insufficient clothing in cold weather. These three follies pro duce blueness of the lips, redness of the nose, and patchiness of the cheeks. Warm gloves and stock ings, and warmth to the chestand the arms between tlhe shoulder and elbow, are wonderful beautifiers.

ELECTRIC ENERGY. LOCAL POWER RATE TO BE REDUCED. What will prove a great advantage to manufacturers in Port Melbourne was the Council's action in reducing the charge for electric motive power to large consumers.

CORRESPONDENCE. FORTUNES OF WAR. To the Editor of "The Standard." [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 7 November 1914
CORRESPONDENCE. FORTUNES OF WAR. To the Editor of "The Standard." Sir,-Under headlines as above, you dilate at some length in your last issue upon a case of distress in our town, and inter alia say that " The Sergeant then directed her to the Mayor (Cr. Smith); but so far no assistance has been received." With great respect. Sir, I ask that before publishing statements that are purely ex parte, you will in future be sure of your facts. Why Sergeant Sims should send the case in question-not by any means an isolated one-to me is a littlebeyond my comprehension, but this after all is a detail. You say that no assistance was re ceived ? Surely it is not expected that the Mayor each time be hands over a donation should proclaim the facts from the house tops. Why, Sir, it would be inexorable taste, and I even now hesitate to inform you that. up to the present moment no case of distress has left my door un aided, but how long I shall be in a position to continue this I cannot pretend to sa...
ITEMS OF NEWS. Labor Party and Press. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 7 November 1914
ITEIMIS OF NEWS:. Labor Party and Press. At the local branch meeting of the P.L.C. on Tuesday.evening week a majority of members present decided that press representatives should be excluded from reporting its proceed; ings in the future. This action was taken after consideration had been given to a communication from the Central Executive dealing with the subject, but the reasons set forth are known only to those memberspre sent, as the discussi~n was held in camera. Whatever actuated the branch to exclude the local press from supplying impartial reports of proceedings cannot reasonably be conjectured, as the labor movement has everything to gain by giving prominence to its advanced ideas if placed before the public in a fair light, which we have always endea voured to do. The privilege of at tending the branch meetings of the party has been extended to us since the inception of the movement, when it was conducted at a small hall in South Melbourne. In this connec tion, and as show...
