THE BOOK LOVER [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 2 May 1930
THE BOOK LOVER A talking picture is being made of Mrs. Mary Shelley's gruesome story, 'Frankenstein.' j Violet Hunt is preparing a 'Life' of Eleanor Elizabeth Siddal, who became the wife of Dante Gabriel | Rossetti in 1862. | ? i Erich Remarque, the author ofi 'All Quiet on the Western Front' is] writing a sequel. Putnam announces, the book for early publication, j Forthcoming books from Messrs. Cobden-Sanderson include 'The Friend of Shelley: A Memoir of Edward John Trelawny,' by H. J. Massingham. The announcement that Mr. Hugh Walpole is about to publish a novel of 792 pages has raised some pro tests in England against the veryi long novel which, it is said, has be-' some the fashion. | The Great War remained untouch-; ed in the Forsyte Saga, but Mr. Jack Galsworthy has now traced the course of Soames Forsyte's feelings through the war years — as well as the feel ings of all England — in a new 'frag-; mcnt,' entitled 'Soames and the Flag.' The book will be published in a limited e...
BOOK REVIEWS MAN WHO HID MIKE COLLINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 2 May 1930
BOOK REVIEWS MAN WHO HID MIKE COLLINS. Batt O'Connor* is the man who hid Michael Collins from thq. hottestj pursuit and most determined searches; and in this well-written and lively book he gives the most honest and at travtive picture of Collins to date, j A well-known figure in Dublin politics, Mr. O'Connor throws much; light on twenty thrilling years of Irish movements and personalities. ' As a buildine contractor, he built rows of houses, and, -as a friend of Collins, he built simple and cunning hiding places never discovered by the cutest Black-and-Tans. The story is told with a pleasing wit and directness. In With the Dublin Brigadef Charles Dalton tells his own experi ences as a Volunteer and Intelligence Officer during the Anglo-Irish strug gle. He, too, was intimately in touch with Michael Collins, and there are grim and haunting episodes on many pages. Two episodes stand out; the daring attempt to rescue General Sean Mac Eoin from Mountjoy Jail by means of a captured armou...
THUMBNAIL REVIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 2 May 1930
THUMBNAIL REVIEWS. 'Rogues of Fortune,' by John J. Chichester (Hutchinson) ,- is one of those adventure books which glori fies crime. The chief rogue is a gen tleman thief, and is so treated that the sympathy of the reader is claim- i ed for this, charming fellow, and con tumely for the men who want to put him into the gaol where he should be. There is plenty of movement in it, but not much else. 'Strange Company,' by S. Theo dore Felstead (Hutchinson). — Read- able stories of crooks and crime. Another volume to the evermount ing library on the subject.

AUTUMN STYLES. IMPRESSIONS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 2 May 1930
AUTUMN STYLES. IMPRESSIONS AND NOTES. Fabrics, just as much as color and line, make, their contribution to the elegance of the present mode. Light- j weight tweeds, soft coatings, rich: velvets, crepes ard silks all spell luxury and respond to the needs of Ihe new silhouette. Color continues what the texture of fabrics begins. Soft sandalwood and cocoa brown make tweeds of supple elegance, while dahlia, burgundy and the live shades of biue ar.d green are seen in lightweight wool jerseys, in tricotines and broadcloths. There are five skirt lengths — sports, ^morning, afternoon, cabaret and evening — ' hese ranging in order from about five inches below the knee-cap to the instep. Skirts are very closely fitted at the hips, while the waistline is indi cated at the normal \vaist in almost every dress seen. Some of the leading Parisian de signers have created day gowns with waist lines drooping to the back to follow the line of a bolero or the draping of a bloused bodice. Coats are follo...
COOKERY HINTS. LEMON-JUICE GARGLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 2 May 1930
COOKERY HINTS. LEMON -JIHCE GARGLE. Lemon juice makes a good gargle for a sore throat. It should be used every hour, and at the same time a half to a teaspoon swal lowed. This cuts the phlegm. If the juice proves tco strong, it may be diluted with a little water. A CURE FOR HIVES. An excellent remedy for hives is lime-water given in all milk — one teaspoonful to each feeding bcttle or cup. This destroys acidity, which is the chief cause of hives. Carbonate of soda, moistened with water, dabb?d gentiy on the irritating spots will soothe in the mean time. I A SOOTHING DRiNK. My two children had measles when our family doctcr was away. An old nurse treated them, and gave them this drink, which she informed me is excellent for any thirsty illness. It is made from a tablespocnful of black currant jam. and one teaspoonful of pure .glycerine, put into a quart jug, and filled up with boiling water.

Kirrkie showed much better form than he did on this course a fort night previous. Kirrkie was one of the last in the early stages, and it was not until the six furlongs post was past that he 'began to. show up. He put in a great run in the straight, but the winner was too good for him. Golden Aureole was quietly fan cied, and although he had never shnwtl -Vi«- frmlH efflv liic onnnnvl-! was wairanted. After doing practi-j cally .all the pacing he hung on well and filled third place. Some Quality was, as usual, at the tail of the field early, but made up her ground and beat a.l but the placegetters. Special Call was never l'eally dangerous, but after being well back in the field did well to finish fifth. Spearflight, one of the outsiders of the race, surprised by finishing, close up, and it is probable that he has been racing over too short a course. Ethelton came in for heavy support, but after being al-j ways in a good position she failed to see the journey ou . Santa Thebea was a ...

MOUNT MENACE. One of the World's Worst Volcanoes is at its Old Tricks Again. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 2 May 1930
MOUNT MENACE. One of the World's Worst Volcanoes is at its Old Tricks Again. What is perhaps the greatest disas ter of modern times -is recalled by the fact that Mount Pelee, in Mar tinique, is again active. But the interest caused by the re ports is not the purely academic one ef recalling a past tragedy. People are asking — and in Martinique it sp.lf the question is beine- nut with special anxiety — if the great erup tion of 1902 is to be repeated. For the disaster did not come as a thun derbolt out of a clear sky — eight months elapsed between the first sign of trouble and the tragic climax. By that reckoning six months or no must elapse before those who live in the shadow of the volcano can feel safe once more. There is one big safeguard against any new disaster on the same scale, Huwever. peupie 01 iviai Limque are not likely to treat the warnings they receive so lightly as did those who perished 28 years a;ro.
