My Lady's Toilet [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 6 April 1923

My Lady's Toilet -: o : In the elegant days of the 18th Century, my lady's toilet was a lengthy affair. This was chiefly due to the elaborate coiffures then in vogue. But the beauties of that period were famous for their brilliant complexions and graceful figures, and the following simple recipes, some old-fash- ioned, some modern, may not come amiss to my lady of the 20th Century. THE ETERNAL FEMININE. Most women will suffer anything in order to improve their looks. In order to keep her complexion in its pristine freshness, the 18th Century "belle" subjected herself to a most painful "skimming" process, whereby the old skin was peeled off with carbolic, leaving the new skin underneath exposed. Crude as the method was, the theory was excellent. Everyone of us has^a clean new skin just below the soiled outer one, that is now visible. The modern application of this principle is to use Mercolised Wax. This % is applied just like ordinary cold cream, but on account of the oxygen it cont...

MOTORING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 6 April 1923

MOTORING NOTES. There Is one Austi'alian Inter-Capital Motor Car Record which until last week had been left unassailed for some 9 years,, and that is Murray Aunger's 14hrs. 54mlns. for the Melbourne-Adelaide run of 575 miles. At the time this record was estab- lished-February, 1014-the conditions along the "Coorong" Desex't between King- ston and Meningie were heartbreaking, huge sand drifts having to be negotiated, which made Aunger's dx-xve, on a Dunlop shod Vauxhall, a remarkable one. The "Coox'ong" ' conditions have improved greatly, but despite that fact, the 1914 Recox-d is going to take some beating. Last week Messrs. E. Scott and "Andy" Lang of Melbourne, aboard a 27h.p. Roamer (4 cylinder Dusenbx-g Engine) made an at- tempt to reduce the existing record, and on- ly for a bit of bad luck, looked like cre- ating new figures. Despite a couple of punctures the. "Coorong" was negotiated in good time and all went well until near Millicent, when owing to the rough travel- ling, th...

Sales of Local Scoured .Wool. TEXTILE ACTIVITY ABROAD. Aiessrs Winchcombe, Carson, Ltd., re- port, under date April 9th as follows : Apparently the recovery in wool values at closing March sales has satisfied manu- facturers that rates are on a sound basis. No disquieting fears are noticeable in re- ports from abroad. Bradford tops are quoted firm and the market is confident in tone. The limited extent of the fall in wool rates at early March auctions no doubt had considerable effect In reassuring the trade. At different times competition sagged from almost every quarter. But the demand for wool proved so sound that no section of buyers- was able to hold-off purchasing consistently. As a result, the slackening was of short duration. Regained confidence in one direction quickly showed its effect in other quarters. The healthiness of demand is further evidenced by the sales of wool being made privately. France, in particular, has been active on local scoureds at figures ranging from 4...
