HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 5 September 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Washing" Cotton Blouses.-Col ored cotton blouses require very careful washing. The water should only be lukewarm, with some shav ings of good household soap and the blouse should be rinsed well in plen ty of clean, cold water.

For mauve try one penny worth of lump ammonia dissolved in a little boiling water, and for pink or red cotton have a little vinegar mixed with the rinsing water. House Plants.-If you find any difliculty in rearing house plants, it is probable that lack of fresh air is at the bottom of the trouble, W?hat mrally people lose sight of is the fact that plants require fresh air to keep them healthy just as much as hu. man beings do.

-ELECTI'ON NOTES. Labor scored a big vote in Foot scray and Yarraville last Saturday, and deserved the success that attend. ed the work of the enthusiastic mem hers of local Labor leagues and trades unions. The war and the walk-over gained by Mr. J. Mathews, for Mol bourne Ports, all had the effect of causing people to lose interest in the Senate elections, and to combat this much energy was needed. It was recognised that the heavy Labor vote in Melbourne Ports last year won two Senate seats for Labor, and any thing less than that vote was likely to endanger the position. So it was that members of the leagues and unions arranged a campaign as com p lete as though there was an election or the House of Representatives.

Recently the ex-mayor (Councillor Drew) and the surveyor, made an in spection of some discarded park gates in the possession of the Melbourne City Council and came across a pair regard ed as suitable for erection at the main entrance to the Footscray Park at the corner of Nicholson street and Ballarat road. If these be secured they will, when erected, add considerably to the appearance of the locality and will assist in giving the park an attractive ness that will be marked. Additional attractiveness to the park itself will be the result of the decision of the Foots cray Park Beautification committee to lay out the entrance. This important work has been put in hand and it is I hoped that by Cup day the area from the gates to the brow of the hill will present a very fine aspect. The main and side paths are to be graded and gravelled; a 2ft. grass border is to run for some distance on each side of the main path, and behind this a 8ft. bed of flowers, ornamental shrubs, &c., is...
