BOOK REVIEW A £1000 PRIZE NOVEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 24 April 1930

mm review A £1000 PRIZE NOVEL. The Seventh Gate, by Muriel Harris. Caoe. An uninteresting middle-aged woman of small talent, suffering! from sex repression, becomes obses sed by the glib theory of an anthro pologist — 'Imagine the impulse toj do, harnessed with sex. instead of, pulling against it. Such a man could move mountains ...' I A knock on the head, and the thing is accomplished. The futile' music teacher becomes a genius.1 young, dominating, but less alive than the pathetic drifter of former' days. It cannot last; in the midst of - triumph she dies, and the corpse is! old and withered. ' I If the great singer is -not much' more than a . voice, her acquaintances.' i whom she ..ruthlessly., dragoons 'to. serve her- ends,- are solid enough. Their ^portrayal - is the author's real: achievement. From Dr. Risaleur.i [the inspiring anthropologist, to ^fche Tired Teachers who recuperate! amidst amateur theatricals, the cha racters are comfortingly alive and in the round. 'Among Real...

IS THIS 1934? How a Monks Mistake Has Made the Whole World's Calendars Wrong. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 24 April 1930

IS THIS 1934? How a Monk's Mistake Has Made! the Whole World's Calendar* Wrong. To begin with, you must remem ber that Christmas did not begin to keep Christ's birthday until more than a century after His life on earth. By that time the date of Christ's birth had been forgotten. One thing is certain, however — that the date we do keep. December 25, is not the right one, for that being the very middle of the rainy season in Pales tine, shepherds would certainly not be keeping watch over ' their flocks in the open fields. October or No vember are more likely months. But this is not the worst blunder we make in the date of Christmas. All these centuries we have been ac cepting the statement of the monk Dionysius the Little that Christ was born inthe 73rd year from the foun dation of Rome. Now it is practically certain that this is wrong, and that Christ's birth took place some years before A.D. 1, the year now accepted as the begin ning of the Christian Fra. Evidence from the Moon. .St...

lire you^ui^tic? When damp weather sets in don't expect to be rheumatic I Guard yourself against such risk by strengthening the kidneys. Normally, rich blood circulates I throughout the system, repairing i and nourisning the tissues, and ' it is the duty of the kidneys to 1 keep this blood pure. * Overwork, worry or changes in the weather, add to the burden. The kidneys may not be equal to the strain. They fail to filter out from the blood, uric acid and other harmful impurities, which cause backache, lumbago, sci'atica and rheumatism. Don't wait until these complaints develop. Immediately you begin I to experience rheumatic twinges, urinary trouble, backache, or other sign of kidney disorder, use Dean's Backache Kidney Pills, and you i will soon be well again. Better still, you can prevent kidney trouble by taking an occasional course of Doan's as a precaution. Sold by all Chemists and Stores. Foster-McClellan Co.

ECONOMY IN FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 24 April 1930

ECONOMY IN FEEDING. With present high prices for mill offals, and low prices for table duck lings, the duck raiser is compelled to practise strict economy. The price of pollard is so high that provision must be made for feed which will lower tne percentage of high-priced feeds, used without reducing flesh forming qualities. Stale bread is one of the best feeds for ducklings; they relish it, ihnve and fatten on it, and ?best of all, it produces a class of flesh much desired and sought for by poulterers. Stale bread is easily pre pared, and indeed not be scalded in hot weather. Snnlr n\rorn I cr '!--+? av early morning, mix with pollard, and a little bran to a crumbly state and feed cold. Most bakers usually have q surplus for sale at quite a modest price. Hotel or restaurant waste is, I of course, excellent food for ducks, but it does not produce the same quality flesh as bread, and great care must be exercised in feeding it, owing to its susceptibility to fermen tation, in which sta...

BOXING HAINES RAN LEOPARDI OFF HIS FEET. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 24 April 1930

BOXING HAINES RAN LEOPARDI OFF HIS FEET. The result of last Saturday night's fight at the Sydney Stadium between; Jack Haines and Leopardi was never in doubt. Half-way through round ten Joe Waliis stopped the fight arid crowned Haines the winner. It was the only thing to do to disqualify the Italian lor hanging on, as he was causing the fight to develop into a down town wrestling match. Leopardi was clever for one round — the first — thereafter the fight .was a little game of hide and seek, with Haines doing the seeking, and Leo pardi taking the hiding. Leopardi danced all over the ring. He rarely fought. | His tactics clearly showed that he| would have been the happiest man in! Sydney if he could have remained thei full 15 rounds. With that end in view, he stood off, then clinched with all the ability of some of those old-timers we read about. Still, he deserves credit for going even ten rounds. Haines fought like a tiger with a lust for blood. His punches seemed envenomed. He was ...

THE QUESTION OF THE LINE. WHICH SKIRT IS BEST ? [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 24 April 1930

THE QUESTION OF THE LINE. WHICH SKIRT IS BEST ? When a woman is about to choose a new frock, whether it be for day or evening wear, the great question is one of line. Which is the newest line to fol low? The question is a little difficult to ans-wer;^ because there are many good lines all more or less new. For day frocks we have the 'flared slcirt, with its own variations. For instance, there is the skirt flared from the natural waist, which has the bodice smoothed into the top, I without fullness and without a belt. There is also the flared skirt set into a deep hip band, which again is at tached to a high-waisted bodice. Al ternatively the bodice may be long and slightly pouched in the newest way. In sports frocks the flare is ar ranged into box or inverted pleats; i this looks remarkably smart, espe cially when the pleats aie sntcneu; down as far as the knee. In afternoon gowns we have the double skirt again. There used to be , quite a vogue for it when women were not so slim as ...
