WHAT DOES SPENDING COST ? How much does it cost you to spend £100? The answer is £100 down, and at least £4 per annum for the rest of your life. Yet what man would knowingly spend £100 that put him under obligation to pay £4 per year for life? None, perhaps, but many do It unconsciously when they spend money ^ that might otherwise have earned interest at 4% indefinitely.

THE ENGLISH DERBY. WINNER MAY COME FROM MAIDEN RANKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 24 April 1930
THE ENGLISH DERBY. WINNER MAY COME FROM MAiDEN RANKS. Stanley Wootton, shortly after his) arrival on a visit to his home city, expressed the opinion that there was! a possibility of this year's English Derby being won by something thatl had not distinguished itself as a two-] year-old. Last year many two-year-j oias were not seriously irameu, ow ing to the unusual hardness of thei ground, and it is believed some of these will prove superior to the cracks! of the season. Touching on this, 'Audax'' recently wrote as follows in the 'Horse and Hound': — 'An interesting wager has lately been made on this year's Derby. A well-known owner has laid another] 5 to 1 to a fair amount that thei race will not be won by a colt who is at present a maiden. A, certain i piquancy attaches to the bet, be cause the first owner is the breeder of a colt who has a very big chance of winning the Derby on his two year-old form. Further, the other owner has already won the race with a colt who was a maiden u...
THE BOOK LOVER [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 24 April 1930
THE BOOK LOVER Michaelangelo is the subject of still another volume, this time pub lished in Berlin by Emil Ludwig. The advice of the artist to his nephew and heir concerning the choice of a wife is given from a letter: — f As regards beauty, you can have no great as pirations, as you cannot consider yourself the handsomest youth in Florence. See to it that she is not humpbacked, and that she is cleanly in her habits. I hope that whoever is going to give you a wife will do so on your own account, and not because you have money. Pay attention to the health of her soul and of her body, to the purity of her blood and of her morals, and to what kind of relatives she possesses, .for that is very important. Look out for a wife who, in case of need, does not dis dain to wash the dishes herself. Dick Grace, who does aeroplane] 'stunts' for the moving pictures, tells of his adventures in 'Squadron of Death' (Constable).

NEW TARIFF BENEFITS THE WORKERS. Unemployed Position Relieved by Scullin Government's Action. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 24 April 1930
NEW TARIFF BENEFITS THE WORKERS. Unemployed Position Relieved by Scullin Government's Action. The Manufacturing Grocers* Union resolved that the Fedo ra 1 Government be congratu lated for its action in protecting Australian industries. Review ine the position, Mr. Alex Ross, president of the Victorian branch of the union speaking on behailf the candle-makers, said he could see no reason why candles should be, imported into Australia. In this country there are all the raw materials for making the stear me for candles. Stearine he said was the product from animal fats and was used extensively in many other industries. Quantities of stearine was imported from overseas whilst | Australian workers were idle. They had sufficient plant, material and _la bor to make every pound of stearine needed in Australia. With the in creased manufacture of stearine in Australia the man on the land would benefit by the increased value of the by-product of their sheep and cattle from which the stearine i...

THAT DANCE FROCK. FASHIONS SHOW NEW TREND. The season of waltz and fox trot will soon.be ill full swing and every wise girl is planning bcr new dancing outfit. It seems I i incongruous , . vto attempt the - modern daeices^ io ' f focla with an old-lFashioned avor, but the designers have wisely antici pated the ballroom mode by making evening frocks with de ' tachable trains or draperies which, can be fixed to tbe wrist whiles dancing. For 'at all costs the frock must be long, or simu late ' length; £he knee-length' style is as dead as, last year's jazz tune. . s The tango is making, a strong bid for' favor this year, and the attrac-, tive dance is likely to gain followers.) But the, fashions in: dances are not ! nearly so important as the fashions in frocks, and .any ijnevenness in ' skirts must be seen all the way round. All smart evening j clothes are de vised to show only the ankles (writes 'A Londoner'). There are trans parencies at the hem of many dresses but the transparency i...
