KNOWING HOW TO SPEND. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
KNOWING HOW TO SPEND. The importance of spending the house hold money is as great as the earning of it. It is impossible for a man to know the con ditions of the market unless he is in the midst of it; so equally impossible is it for the woman to know the conditions of her market unless she goes there personally to ask and to see. The housewife is not trained to spend as the husband is trained to earn, and there is where much of the trouble of the high cost of living lies. The first step in many a house wife's education is a realisation of the importance of per sonal marketing and the learning, of prices at first hand. Fo this time must be found.
RE-MODELLING A FROCK. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
RE-MODELLING A FROCK. One clever way of re-modelling a last year's frock is to cut about six or eight inches off the top of the skirt and hang this over an underskirt faced up for a short distance with satin or taffeta and finished with a soft frill of the same. Then cut six or eight slashes in the low edge of the over skirt and set in eodet sections of the taffeta or satin finishing the overskirt like the un der one with a ruffle of the silk. If the old waist was of the kimono style, recut it so that it will have set in sleeves, and as this will tend to shorten the sleeves some what, lengthen them by a circular frill of net, and have a collar of the same to finish the throat. Then drape a soft sash on the taffeta, and, above this set on a three nar row circular iiounces which will continue into sash ends at the back. Use silk of a shade lighter or darker for this remodelling rather than a contrasting color. This may sound like ciu'te a bit of work, but it really can be done very qu...
THE GIRL WHO LOOKS NICE. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
THE GIRL WHO LOOKS NICE. A well groomed -jgirl is not always the most expensively dressed girl, nor does she dress her hair in the most extreme fashion. But when you look at her once you are bound to take a second look — she is so pleasing, so harmonious, so restful. Her hair is clean and well brushed. She never allows a spot to remain on her frock. Her neckwear is immaculate, and her skirts and blouses always meet firmly. Her skirts do not sag at all, and her boots or shoes are never down at heel. A missing shoe button she abhors, and her laces and ties are always fresh and well-tied. She wears a simple hat with a coat and skirt, and her gloves are subdued in color. She does not wear fancy slippers with a short tailored skirt, or a much betrimmed hat in the morning. Freshness and har mony — these are the keynotes of the girl who always looks nice.

ODDFELLOWS HALL PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
ODDFELLOWS HALL PICTURES. The management of the above must in deed be proud men, for last Saturday night the whole of the seating accommodation with the exception of a few 6d seats were were booked before the. doors were opened. This speaks more eloquently than words of the superiority of the programmes pre sented. At their mid-week shows, too, the attendances are far above the average. We have heard a whisper that still further at tractions are to be presented. If this goeB , on, well, they will have to still further en large the hall.

When Economy is Poor Business. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
When Economy is Poor Business. In any business economy must play an im portant part if it is to be made lucrative, and' as few businesses are carried on just for the fun of it, it necessarily follows that judicious economy must be practised by in dividuals and bodies corporate. But there is economy and something else which is called false economy. Eor instance, if a petrol tank was leaking, it would be false economy to let it keep on leaking by reason of the expense of making repairs. If a gas pipe sprung a leak, it would be false and fatal economy to quietly retire to bed rather than pay the plumber. This applies to the matter of valuations in the Blaxland Shire Council. There is a reported leakage, and for the last three or four years the coun cillors have been improvising and shirking the duty. The position is a plain one. The clerk reports that he has reason to believe quite a number of properties within the shire have escaped taxation up to the pre sent, and, in addition, to th...

Cheetham's Flats. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
Cheetham's Flats. (From our o\Vn correspondent.) Mr. W. Perry received a telegram on Sat urday last stating that his son Ernest has been wounded at the Dardanelles. It is hoped thai it is not serious. It is rumoured that Mr. Roy Cale intends opening a butchery business at Rydal. As there is no other butcher In or around Rydal it is likely that he will do a good trade. Large areas of land are being prepared for potato and pea crops. Pea growing has become quite an industry at Cheetham's Flats. Straying stock are becoming a great nuisance here. As all the roads and lanes have been eaten out, they now generally live either with their headB through some one's wire fence or in their garden or wheat crop at night. Horse buyers have* been through the dis trict buying up young draught horses and taking them to the back country for the coming harvest. Life is merry down at the Lithgow camp. The 'Democrat'-' has -a rapidly increasing circulation.

SOME RECIPIES. CURRY SAUCE. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
SOME RECIPIES. CURRY SAUCE. Ingredients: — 1 oz.' butter or beef drip ping, 1 onion, 2 tablespoonfuls curry pow der, 2 teaspoonfuls curry paste, 1 table spoonful chutney, 1 tablespoonful ground rice, or flour, 1 pint of stock or water.

The Rule of the Road. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915
The Rule of the Road. When motor cars and motor cycles first drivers and riders, who were in the habit of speeding up at a greater pace than usually favored at their daily occupations, were re sponsible for the new' arid appropriate ap pellation, 'motor hogs.' This evil becomes worse daily in Lithgow and surrounding districts. We cannot boast of wide or very straight . roads or streets in this locality. Lithgow itself has one street labelled Bent, but the same term could be applied to each and every one with undoubted truthfulness. But it is not the streets or roads that we are dealing with, but the people who use them, and the criticism of our thoroughfares Vas only introduced so as to emphasise the necessity of those who use them, exercising every care land strictly adhering to the rules of the road. We must premise our remarks* by exempting local motor car drivers, who invariably either in speed or slowness ad here to the. proper side. It is the, motor cyclist principally who is ...
