A Beauty Cure. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 31 July 1909

A Beauty Cure. A beauty cure that is engaging the at tention of fashionable society at the moment is the milk cure, and its only fault is that it is ridiculously cheap for a cure adopted by fashionable society. Milk is rubbed into the face at night with a piece of soft linen and allowed to dry, and in the morning the face is washed in milk, but no soap must be used. Skin regularly washed in milk is declared to be proof against sunburn.

The Benefits of a Turkish Bath [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 31 July 1909

The Benefits of a Turkish Bath Turkish baths, by the way, are misnamed for they neither originated with the Turks, nor are they exclusively patronised by them . They are the nearest approach to Orien tal baths that English people have been able to accomplish. Our baths are in basements, two or three generally to a large city. In Constantinople there are fine, large buildings, as conspicuous as churches, and bathing is as pretentious as business or nipfisnrp. Por n norm Infirm of half n mil lion, forty or more of these buildings would about accommodate the people. The prices are so moderate that all classes can enjoy bathing privileges, and that is a feature which did not come to England. Turkish baths are out of the reach of poor people, who, perhaps, need them more than their richer neighbors. ???? Superfluous flesh can be kept down by a weekly Turkish bath, and niairy afflictions like rheumatism and neuralgia, will some times disappear in its warmth and moisture. For women with we...

Katoomba District Benevolent Society. ANNUAL MEETING. The annual meeting of the above society was held in the Council Chambers on Wednesday afternoon last. It is regrettable that the towns people are so apathetic where the society is con cerned, but if they were to attend the annual meetings, which are open to all, they may be im pressed with the relief that has been given to so many sick and poor, and perhaps take more in terest in the work of the society. However, . we hope that the coming year will prove a record one and earnestly adjure everyone to give a helping hand. the chair, and there were also present Mesdames James, Grant, Hicks, Seller, Lewis and Simons, and Misses Husband and Long.

Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 31 July 1909

Household Hints. Fine muslin blouses can be made just the right stiffness by dipping them, after wash ing into water in which a little borax has been dissolved. It is better for thin fabrics than starch, and far less trouble. When a lemon has been cut and only half used, the remaining half may be pre served by placing it cut side downwards on a plate, and covering with a glass. This method excludes the air and will keep the lemon fresh for some time. Rusty keys should be laid to soak for some time in a vessel containing praffinoil. After soaking for a day or two, the oil will have acted upon the rust and loosened it to such an extent that it will be quite easy to remove with a little rubbing. Spinach is one of the most valuable vege tables from the complexion point of view. It contains iron, salts of potassium, and other ingredients which act upon the skin and make it clear and healthy. New lamp wicks should be soaked in vine gar for an hour or two then dried before they are put int...
