McDonald, bear ing" Crimean and New Zealand me dals, took a stand near the main en-: trance; at Craig's Hotel in the hope of 'being: able to obtain a glimpse of the distinguished visitor. It so hap pened that when General Hamitlon did arrive there was no one to ob struct the view of the veteran, and the proudly borne medals of the feeble, half-blind man did not escape the notice of the keen, alert soldier.

AN EASY WAY TO REMOVE SUPERFLOUS HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Kyneton Guardian — 24 March 1914

EASY WAY TO REMOVE SUPERFLOUS HAIR. For the bent-fit of our lady readers who suffer from the humiliating dis figurement of hair on face, lips or chin, wc publish herewith a formula which has the advantage of being simple and inexpensive, as well as marvellously effective. It is noi claim ed by our informant that one applica tion will permanently destroy the hair roots, but it is claimed, and the claims are borne out by actual tests, that one application completely removes the hair, and its regular use, one or two days apart, will quickly and perman ently destroy the hair root itself. If you have hair which you wish per manently removed, ask your chemist to mix 4* drams Pulverised Sulthine Concentrate with drams Zinc Ox ide, P.B., and i dram of Powdered Orris Root, and put in a wide mouth bottle. For use, mix a little of the powder into a paste on a plate by add ing a few drops of water. Apply with a narrow knife blade and remove at the end of two minutes with the back of the knife, ...
