DO FARMERS WORK TOO LONG? [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
DO FARMERS WORK TOO LONG ? Editor " The Land,"-It is very in teresting now tliat the R.W.U. and its demands are so much to the fore to hear the many opinions as to the number of hours a day it is neces sary to work the farm. There is no doubt this will be a very difficult question to deal with. But it will have to be faced as the workers are well organised. And 1 think it would be a great help if tiie editor ol "The Land" would ask his readers to give their opinions on tnis subject. For perhaps there may be farmers who have tried to work a dairy, wheat, or other class of farm on an eight or nine hours' a day system and suc ceeded. If there be any practical farmers who have done so success- ; ? fully it would be most interesting to hear from them, and to learn, their methods. If it could be done by ; some, it is only fair to think'that it may be done by all, perhaps, with a little system. Apart from the claims of the R.W.U., any improvement in this re spect would be the greatest bles...

Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
Correspondence. Anything that: can be done to sim plify and' perfect tlie work of- a coun cil, or to save .time should readily be adopted, particularly if it will facilitate the disposal of business at a meeting. A very good sugges tion lias just been adopted by the West Maitland Council, at the in stance of Aid. McLauchlan, as fol lows:-"That letters when received be handed to the council's officers, for them to report on, such report to be read with the letter at the coun cil meeting." We have seen this, prac tice adopted in councils with marked success, and resulting in a greati saving of time, both to the council, its officials, and the ratepayers.
HONOLULU HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
HONOLULU HOUSES. A Honolulu house fulfils many architecturla ideals, and since that fascinating; island town is now visited by many Australians, Honolulu houses, which . were recently advo cated in the press by Mrs. Holman, wife of the Attorney General, are becoming better known and their: conveniences adopted. Double Avails are the convenience of this kind of house which appeal most to an Australian housewife, espec ially in the dining-room 01* living room is this arrangement-- found a&^?? mi r ably adapted to save labor; time,' trouble, and, incidentally, temper. ' The walls have shelves all along-. them, alternating with books from the top shelf, then they are eri-; closed in doors or curtained off, and; the top forms a high shelf for the lamps to roost on in the daytime, or for' any ornaments, that suit the taste and fancy of the household. Every room lias its cupboards all around it, in short. ^ i For small camp cottages, the idea, ; is catching on here, and for a coun ...
QUEER COIFFURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
QUEER COIFFURES. Head bandages threaten to become 1 quite grotesque, as seen in the dressy part of our theatres of nignts. Tdi ' look like a Hoppner picture is the .object aimed at by those who twist' large and lengthy bands of satin or chiffon around their hair. Occasion ally more bandage than hair is vis ible, with a comical result. Another freakish mode is to pin' the littl6 ? curls on the head ribbon. Presum ably, these curls are real, ' but oil ' one seen the other night, there was no attempt at illusion. On a broad band of royal blue mousseline, which nearly covered the hair, there "were little puffings and curls carefully pinned. To draw up a strand of hair alter the bandeau has been arranged on the head before the hair is done, and puff it into shape, then pinning it on the ribbon, is rather pretty if well carried out, but like all these eccen tric modes, it depends altogether on the way it is done. To put on your hair-ribbon first and your hair af terwards, looks queer to s...
Commons. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
Common9i The M'iili§t&r for JJ&hdS (Mr. .Niel sen) told a deputation at - Golgol, near Wentworth, that he was .total ly opposed ^ commons. Large areas were left wi«'1 &lt;towns as com mons, and his view 01 tuom was that they were merely waste land. This was a matter : he was going to in quire into at an early: date.
WOMEN'S INDUSTRIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
WOMEN'S INDUSTRIES. Wherever a section for women's work has been added to an agricul tural show, it has been found an attraction, and so much is this recog nised, , that at last that most con servative body, the lloyal Agricul tural Society of Victoria, has made tlie addition of a "Women's Indus tries' Section" to their list. For many years our own R.A. Show has had this item on its catalogue, and for years the officials have listed the very same class of exhibit. Every country show, both in New South Wales and Victoria, has its brave array of jams, jellies, pickles, laundried shirts, and variegated fancy work as one of the features of its annual display, Will the Mel bourne Show' have anything differ ent? It will be most interesting to obtain the answer to this at the proper time. Coming, as it does, at a period when the words "women's industries" mean something so very much wider than they did when the first agricultural show was held, we can only hope that the answer will be very...
THE MARYS' GIFT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
THE MARYS' GIFT. Our Lady Mayoress is still hard at it, gathering in subscriptions to the Mary fund, as a coronation gift to the Queen. Mrs. Allen Taylor would like it known that any Mary may send in her subscription to the Town Hall, Sydney, without any other no tice. The fund in Victoria has been closed, and Lady Clibson-Carmicliael, wife of the State Governor, has col lected the money, which amounts to over £200. A great many would-be subscribers to this fund are anxious to know what is to be bought with all the money gathered in. It is to be given to the Queen, who will state to Avhat she wishes to devote the fund. The probability is that it will go to form a charitable endowment.
NEW NEEDLEWORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
NEW NEEDLEWORK. Bags and purses are now such an important item of one's outfit that they have come within the domain of the needleworker, for, to pay the prices asked by some of the shops, for bags and reticules is quite be-, yond the reach of the average wo man's allowance, while the cheap bags have invariably the mark'of the beast of slioddiness stamped some where about them. Little leather purses or knitted bags are often sus pended round the neck by a long cord, and slipped inside the dress. An other kind of purse is shaped like an envelope., about '41/4 inches by 3y2 in ches, when closed; it is made of a piece of cambric 10 inches by 5; a piece of chamois leather, 8 inches by 4, and some ribbon and embroidery cotton. Along one end of the cambric a Yt inch hem is made, and a little flower design traced at the other end, which forms the flap. An embroid ered handkerchief corner will do very well for this, the other three corners being folded over to form the under neath portion o...
THE HOSPITAL QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
THE HOSPITAL QUESTION. Fov some time several people, in cluding women as well as men, have been advocating the nationalisation of health, which is a cumbrous title, and really means in brief, state-sup ported hospitals and free medical at tendance for everybody.. It is not unlike the Chinese system of paying tlxe doctor all the time, one is well, .and stopping his salary as soon as sickness sets in, except that in, the new -regime, as proposed by. the health' nationalisers, the money for the doctors would go* on all the time. The whole hospital question is brought up when this topic is intro duced, and it is one that is of great importance and interest; to women, for whether as nurses, jmtients or collectors women have much more to do witji,.hospital'in both town and country than the general run of men. In the March .number of the Austra lian Trained Nurses periodical there is a thoughtful and well-informed ar ticle on this subject written by one who evidently has inside knowledge o...

Temporary Loans. The Works -Department vhas declin ed to grant permission ^to"' the1 Parra matta Council to temporarily borrow £500.

The Minister. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
The Minister. At last meeting of Armidalc Coun cil a suggestion was made that, to save tlie time of the council the miri utes be taken as read, and it was so' decided. We cannot too strongly con-; demn such a practice. The Ordinances dealing with the confirmation of the minutes-No. 1, clause 13, says: "No motion or discussion shall be permit ted'witli respect to such minutes, ex cept with respect to their accuracy as a , record of the proceedings.'' In the case under review a motion must have been submitted-"That the min utes be taken as read." That, in it self, was illegal. But the point which we wish to make clear is that the minlites."muSt be read before they are confirmed. How can any motion or discussion take place witn respect to their accuracy unless those present first hear them read. It is all-impor tant that minute^ of council meet ings shoulu ,b/f .absolutely correct, and to the credit of the town clerks and shire clerks in the State, we can say that only in very rare ins...
