PEARS BECOMING SCARCE. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 6 January 1914
C PEARS BECOMING SCARCE. t During the last few years the de- I mand for perfect pearls has been so I great that now the supply on hand is practically exhausted, and the leading a jewellers of Europe fear that for some t time tlere will be a dearth of these 0 costly gems. 1 "It as true," says M. C. Ohincolle, an expert, writing on the subject, r "that in the thousands of pearl oysters r which are being constantly brought up s' from the deep, many beautiful pearls 1 are found, but even if twice as many o were found the supply would still be 1 insufficient. The price of pearls has increased greatly of late, yet the more a they cost the more eagerly are they a sought. a "Naturally, the demand is greatest I for those whioh are faultless. A jew eller who has a find row of symmetrical t pearls can be sure of. selling it at a high price. A few days ago I saw a necklace containing 45 pearls, of which s 12 were black. It is worth £10,000, and will certainly be sold within a week. "Wealthy Ame...

PREPARATION OF THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 6 January 1914
PREPARATION OF THE SOIL. A thorough preparation of the soil is one of the chief factors in successful management of the soil. Soils that are badly run down by continuous crop ping may be rcstored to their original state of productiveness by the use of fertilisers, but the cause of small re turns is not always due to a lack of fertility. Mlany oonditions may pre vail -which prevent the plant attaining a healthy development. Better con ditions, obtained by drainage, liming, etc., may be necessary before the plan can avail itself of further addi tions of plant food. The more per fect the condition of the soil is made the better will plants be able to attain the highest development; there will, then, be greater conversion of food into crops. - Our soils are the medium in which we can at pleasure convert pot ash phosphoric acid-nitrogen into crops; therefore, is it' not advisable to keep the medium in the highest state of ef ficiency ?. Feed your crops as you 'di your animals, not merely...

AN EASILY MADE DRESSING GOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 6 January 1914
AN EASILY MADE DRESSING GOWN. -0 What a joy and comfort it is after a day's shopping, or an after noon's visiting, on a very hot day -or, indeed, after a day's prosaic hard work-to throw off one's dress and get into a comfortable dressing grown and easy slippers ! The garment can be made quite presentable and smart to wear at any hour of the day. So that, should you come in tired out after a trying day, the dressing gown may be donned, and quite a respect able air maintained. There need be no "undress " appearance about it. A charming gown, for example, may be evolved from the pattern sketched above. The material suggested is a pretty blue and-white figured foulard, with soft white silk collar and cuffs. A girdle of blue and any other little touches of trimming on the edge of the collar or sleeve make a pretty finish. Other materials, such as charmeuse, delaine, eolienne, nun's veiling, chalys in fact, any soft dress material - make up well. The pattern for the gown is No. 104 of " ...

SDIGESTION Reduces Your Efficiency and Shatters Your Health INDIGESTION has spoiled the life and shattered-the health of many a man and woman. It should never be neglected. The occasional headache or pains after eating, which trouble you now, may scarcely seem worth attention, but twelve months hence, if you neglect them, you may be numbered amongst the great army of dyspeptics, whose daily toil becomes almost intolerable through chronic headaches, pains.after eating, flatulence, biliousness, con stipation, languor, sleeplessness, and depression. It is easier to prevent than cure; therefore, act promptly, now, and take Mother Seigel's Syrup daily, after your meals. It is a herbal remedy, made from more than ten varieties of roots, barks, and leaves. You will find, as have tens of thousands before you, that it has a most beneficial effect upon the stomach, liver, and bowels. Forty years of world-wide successes have proved it. You can prove it, too. RIEAD THE TESTIMONIAL. MRs. M. NIMM...
