SIMPLE NURSERY REMEDIES. OFTEN PREVENT SEVLRE ILLNESSES. Simple nursery remedies kept at hand where there are yaung children may be referred to, s medicinally speaking, as ' the stitch in time.' By administering these simple home remedies at the first signs of sickness severe illness may some times be averted.

It is good, too, for croup or cold on the chest, warmed and used to soak a flannel, which should be applied to the chest. j A teaspoonful warmed may also be given internally at quarter-hour intervals to help relieve the conges tion.' !

ANTS ENTER THE TALKIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 17 January 1930

ANTS ENTER THE TALKIES. I Two scientists of the University ot Pittsburgh recently perfected an | apparatus for detecting the sounds' of underground communication among ants. A block of wood was placed upon the diaphragm ox an ordinai-y telephone transmitter, which . in turn was connected through bat-] teries and amplifiers to a pair of ] earphones. When the termites, crawled over the block of wood the I transmitter was agitated, resulting1 in sound vibration which were clearly! heard by the listener at the head-j set. When the ants became excited i over something or other, their sol diers were found to hammer their heads vigorously on the wood. Ants! can hear sound vibrations in the airj very poorly or not at all, but arei extremely sensitive to vibrations! underground. Because of this sen sitivity co substratum vibrations; ants arc seldom found to infest the ties of railways carrying heavy traf-j fic, or buildings containing machin ery. The vibrations mean danger to them just as if...

BLACKHEADS. A SOURCE OF ANNOYANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 17 January 1930

BLACKHEADS. A SOURCE OF ANNOYANCE. Blackheads are a source of con stant annoyance to many women, and once they appear they are very persistent in their return. Chief! among the causes of ..blackheads is that of going to bed without remov-' ing every vestige of powder fromj the face. Every- night thoroughly; cleanse the skin with warm water. or, better still, a good cold cream. \ Dirty powder puffs are another cause of blackheads. If you go out1 n er''-t deal, take nowder puffs and use them alternately each day and njiiiemuer to wash them at least once a week. j Plenty of fresh air, plenty or fresh! fruit and vegetables are the way to ptt.s'*i a fr°sh. unspotted complexion. A glass of hot water slowly sipped I ursi. vning every morning and last thing every night is excellent in its! effect upon the. complexion. Greasy, heavy foods should be avoided as much as possible. | To remove blackheads from thej skin prepare an ointment 01 fifty grammes of vaseline! and fifty grammes of salisyl...

AERIAL "COPS." Traffic Police Armed with Machine Guns may Patrol the Air. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 17 January 1930

AERIAL 'COre.' I Traffic Police Armed With Machine I Guns may Patrol the Air. I France recently inaugurated her first air police force. Italy has also planned one. Jt-was two years ago that the French m authorities came to the conclu sion that Paris must have its own police air-squad, but before that' .police, had frequently borrowed army aeroplanes. The Italian plans are for a national [body, with machines and equipmfent | controlled by a Government depart ment or by the army authorities, and a staff entirely under the orders of the Government. Italian experiments with air police commenced early in 1927. -' Perhaps the first aerial police force that has actually functioned ' was. organised early in 1928 for the fabulously rich diamond fields then being opened in Namaqualand, South Africa. Police planes patrolled the area, keeping a sharp look-out for j theft, smuggling, and illegal secret I diggings. Forces on the French and Italian lines are bound to spring up in every country, an...

USEFUL HINTS Making White Sauce. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 17 January 1930

USEFUL HINTS Making White Sauce. i Instead of a saucepan, use a fry ing pan to make white sauce in^It saves much time. Celery Economy. Save your celery leaves, dry them in a paper bag and mix with an e&ual quantity of salt. This Is excellent flavoring for soups and stews, and economical, too. I To Clean Paint Brushes. j Paint brushes may be softened and, cleaned by standing for some' days in turpentine, and working oc-' casionally until the old paint has softened and rubbed out. A rinsing in clean turpentine will leave them ready for use. If brushes are stood with the bristles immersed in water immediately after use the old paint' will not harden. Another method of softening is to stand the hardf brushes in vinegar, bringing it to' boiling point and allowing to simmer, for ten minutes. Wash afterwards ;n soap suds. The brushes which' have been used for lacquer should 1 be cleaned immediately after use in the special thinning fluid sold for use with the lacquer. Paper for Pre...

A PARISIAN TOUCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 17 January 1930

A PARISIAN TOUCH. A delightfully Parisian touch will be introduced into the ensemble if the frock in biege, navy blue, or cin namon silk marocain, georgette, or satin, be finished with turn-over col lar and cuffs in finest muslin in color to match. Such addition lends chaim to many | models of the imported' French class, irrespective of the. fabric featured in Ithe making. Frocks, evolved in any one of the good quality, delicately colorful fash ionable materials, are, however, more directly influenced m general effect by collar and cuffs in muslin to ex actly tone than are the linens, printed cambrics, or cotton crepes. The cachet thus achieved is possible onty to cer tain distinctive styles. A strikingly attractive scheme, carried out in satin georgette, in an exquisitely soft tone of cinnamon, in cluded a semi-fitted bodice with high band collar, in the material; finish being supplied by cinnamon muslin collar and cuffs, narrow 'and hem stitched.

THE BOOK LOVER [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 17 January 1930

THE BOOK LOVER j , In a comment upon Mr. Edward Marjoribanks' 'Life of Sir Edward Marshall Hall,' a writer in the 'Weekly Scotsman' says: — I believe that one of Marshall Hall's regrets was that he did not! have the opportunity of defending! Crippen, who poisoned his wife with, hyoscine and buried her remains in' his cellar. The eminent counsel 'had a plan.' Briefly it was this. Hvo-: seme in small doses is a sedative.] Crippen was giving her the drug in? small doses unknown to her. Hej gave an accidentally fatal overdose' and then lost his head — as he did in | another sense later on. This might | have done! at least it was a possible] defence, and otherwise the prisoner had none. j Marshall Hairs triumph as a de fender of prisoners charged with capital crimes brought him such re putation that one rich manufacturer refused to brief him. for his defence m a big financial prosecution, on the ground that if he briefed Mar shall Hall 'everybody vrould think he was a murderer!'

WHEN ACCIDENTS HAPPEN. COMMONSENSE FIRST AID. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 17 January 1930

WHEN ACCIDENTS HAPPEN C0MMQNSENSE FIRST AID. Accidents happen so frequently and suddenly' in these modern bustling days that everyone . idiould possess some general . knowledge of : how ? to act in an ? emergency. ., The obvious first thing to do 'is to get the services of a doctor as soon as possible. . Remember also that first aid on the spot is not intended to take the. place of, that given by the doctor. Its main objects are to see that a broken bone does not do far ther injury to 'the flesh, that bleeding is stopped as quickly as possible, that an open wound is protected against infection, . and .. that the patient is made as comfortable as circum stances permit. Injuries can be divided into two main classes — those with broken bones and those without. .With the former,, if the fracture is not visible a .broken bone may be detected by a swelling or by the victim complain ing of severe pain or loss of power in the limb. In any case, play for safety and .assume that a break has h...

NOBODY KNOWS THEM! j ' I should like,' said the great : doctor, Sir Thomas Horder, ' to ! put up a statue to the man who . j made aspirin, but no one seems i to know who it was.' j It is notorious that inventors rarely profit by their inventions, but, perhaps, sadder still to think how many valuable inventions we owe to men whose names have long been forgotten. -? You wake in the morning and glance at your watch, but though it is said that Peter Hele made the first pocket clock, we have no knowledge of the inventor of the watch as used, to-day. ' ( Next we look out of the window at ? the weather, but it does not occur to! us that we are entirely ignorant of j the identity of the inventor of that : wonderful substance, glass.

There were eight races; this was caused through divisions in the Novice and Trial Stakes, but fields were very poor throughout.
