ELECTRICITY AS A BEAUTIFIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
ELECTRICITY AS A BEAUTIFIER. When all our telegraphic messages are sent '"via wireless," there will still be a use for the old-fashioned ?wire, for electricity is coming more and more into use in home life. Leav ing out of count cooking and light ing, which are now achieved electri cally, the mysterious force is now powerful as an aid to beauty. It is used in electrolysis, for instance. "What is electrolysis?" I asked a beauty specialist recently, on behold ing that rather fearsome word in her circular. "It is the process of removing su perfluous hairs by electricity," she re plied. "Come and I will show you how it's done." So. taking me into a room fitted up something like a dentist's operating chamber, but not so elaborately fit ted, the beauty doctor showed me a set of cruel looking little needles at the end of an electric cord, hanging from a battery on the wall. "These needles remove the hairs," she said, "I removed my own mous tache with them. "Yes." in answer to my incredulou...
DANGEROUS DRUGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
DANGEROUS DRUGS. Owing, perhaps, to the amount of rain, followed by bright hot weather, there seems to be a lot of influenza about at present, for relief from which women fly to quinine, phenace tin, and other drugs, which should only be given under a doctor's orders. An ordinary cold in the head often leads to influenza, and it should not be forgotten that these "influenza colds," as we call them, are very infectious. One coughing and sneez ing may give the complaint to those around us. Nearly everybody knows , now the symptoms of influenza, the high temperature and severe head ache being the most common. Then is the time when the drugs are re sorted to, and sometimes the effect of these is most deleterious. The best domestic remedies are rest, fresh air, and proper diet. Rest in bed until you are quite well. Do not get up too soon, or it may mean a relapse. It is the very hardest advice to follow, that command to stay in bed. The mother of a family must be always "on deck," and a ...
HINTS ON ETIQUETTE. Card Leaving. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
HINTS ON ETIQUETTE. Card Leaving. A woman who has written many pages of "Answers- to Correspon dents," f-nd "Hints for the House hold," in the women's pages of week ly newspapers, said to me recently: " "One of your own and two of your husband's' is a phrase that comes mechanically from my pen when I answer etiquette queriesr in my correspondence column. The most sough t^f or piece of informa tion by women in town and country, is "How many cards should I leave ort a married lady, in making a first call?' Then the oft-conned phrase is scribbled off in reply." The "card trick." as it may fairly be called, invariably baffles begin-' ners in society's rounds, but it is very simple. An unmarried woman natu rally only leaves one card-her own when making a first call, and this for two excellent reasons. In the first place, it is not a lady's place to call on a man, so she only leaves a card 011 the wife, in the second place, she doesn't leave her husband's cards, because she hasn't got a h...
REST AS YOU GO. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
REST AS YOU GO. The above should be the motto of every woman who wishes to re main young and pretty. Ten min utes' thorough rest will refresh one for the remainder of the day, but to secure a thorough rest every' muscle must be relaxed, and, a's far as pos sible. the mind should' be made a blank. When a feeling of real fatigue arises a quarter of an hour should be spent in rest with all garments loose, and after this a warm bath taken. A little eau-de-Cologne or toilet vinegar should be thrown in to the water, and after a brisk fric tion with a rough towel, a little powdered orris-root should be dab bed on the skin. A delicious sense of freshness will be experienced, and all fatigue will disappear. If you've not a shoe horn, drop your handkerchief into your shoe be fore inserting your foot, then pull tightly, and the shoe will slip on easily. A delicious cream for the hands is made thus:-Put into a gallipot half an ounce each of pure white wax and of spermacetti. and two ounces and ...
PRETTY BEDSPREADS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
PRETTY BEDSPREADS. In summer use no prettier bed spreads are shown than the cotton quilts printed 111 gay colours. These ?wash well, and make the whole room look gay, to be replaced when win ter comes by the luxurious eiderdown. Bedspreads and tablecloths of print ed cotton to match, are always in good taste. Bed draperies, when em ployed, should always be of washable material, and mantel drapes should likewise wash, and should be as sim ple as possible. Anything that is likely to keep the dust lying in its cracks or folds should be rigorously avoided in bedroom furniture. Fancy of late has swung round to the mono tone material for the covering of chairs and couches, and for the manu facture of long curtains. So we have these items made of linen or Bolton sheeting, the favourite shades being aluminium gray, fawn, purple, green, rose, blue, and ivory white, with cu shions to match, embroidered on ap plique, by way of relief, with floral sprays, birds, conventional designs, or only a ...

Public Gates. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Public Gates. A petition, signed by a large num ber of persona was presented to Colo Shire Council, drawing attention to the number of "unnecessary public gates" on the road Copple Hill to Sackville. There being six gates within the short distance of 2% miles, much inconvenience was caus ed the travelling public, and, there fore, the petitioners requested the re moval of these gates. The following motion was carried:-"That the peti tioners asking for the removal of the public gates on road Sackville to Low er Portland, be informed that the1 .council has granted all the gates on private boundaries that were in &lt; x istence when the shire took control,, and that, acting on that Hasis, they are not inclined to cause any gate to be removed unless all the gates on thai particular road be removed, and in view of the council having recently granted these gates, they consider that they should not be removed for at least one year from the time they were granted, and if the petition...

The council proposed to consider the suggestion.
Regulation of Hoardings. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
Regulation of Hoardings. The Minister for Works received a deputation from several municipal councils, headed by Paddington last week, and heard a request for the. restitution of power to councils to regulate hoardings. The power had been originally conferred by section 115 of the Local Government Act, but; the amendment of the section had1 taken it away, and those who desir ed to erect hoardings could do so un restrictedly by the mere payment of the hoarding fees. Some of the hoardings produced more rent than cottages, but districts were thereby being disfigured. The Minister gave a favourable re ply to the deputation. He had al ways held that local government should be of a local, autonomous character. The predecessors of the Government seemed to have preferred to look after the interests of a few wealthy owners of hoardings. The present restrictions should never have been imposed. In the new Local Go vernment Bill he proposed-to intro duce it would be found that this dis ability ...

The fight means a lot to both men, A win for Smith means good engage ments abroad, and another loss to Papke will settle his reputation al together. Papke recognises this,, and will put up a great effort to recover his lost prestige. According to the cable, Lester...
HUNTER RIVER SUBDIVISION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
HUNTER RIVER SUBDIVISION. No portion of the Commonwealth of Australia has attained a higher position in the minds of agriculturists than the famous Hunter River Val ley. From the earliest period in our history the Hunter has been noted for its wonderfully rich resources, and surprising fertility, and the repu tation has been maintained until the present day. Farms have been held in the district by the one family for several generations, and are being tilled to-day without showing any signs of the land becoming exhaust ed. It is owing to these two factors that the Hunter River farms are ac counted the most desirable of any in Australia-the land is wonderfully rich and of surprising endurance. Naturally, the price of farms in the more favoured portions of the dis trict is "very high, and as the demand is insatiable, the values are bound to be well maintained. So that any subdivision of a property in the dis trict is of importance to those in search of land. Blairmore Estate, si tuated...
