My Lady's Toilet. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 20 April 1923

My Lady's Toilet -:o:-: In the elegant days of the 18th Century; my lady's toilet was a lengthy affair. Thia 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 bid-fash- ioned, some modern, may not come amiss to my lady of the 20th Century THE ETERNAL EEMINEÍE. 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" process1, 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 jus£ below the soiled outer one, that is now visible. The modern application of thia principle is "to use Mêrcolised "Wax; This is applied just like ordinary cold cream; but on account of the oxygen it...

That or some other combination >:: You hear it many times a day. The names represent their respective parties, of course, but so far as Mr. Theodore is concerned his name seems to have become a synonym * . for the Labour Party. At all events the ac - ?. ' tion will soon be general, and if there ls any decided move at all on the eve of battle ;. the tendency is aginst Labour. That is not meant to indicate that the Labour Party (Theodore, it is mostly called) will be : - beaten in the city electorates, because it is too early yet to predict what will be the re- sult.

MOTORING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 27 April 1923

MOTORING NOTES. - . u . --- Messrs. J. L. Burton and W. Bradley met 4. with misfortune in their attempt to cross Australia from "West to East per motor car ," in record time. A slashing performance was ' recorded by the overlanders up to Eucla near the W.A. and S.A. border, where the "Vauxhall" was over 19 hours ahead of the ,, previous record after a run of 935 miles. An accident shortly after leaving Eucla rendered further progress impossible', and the trip had to be abandoned. In the early part of the journey a particularly fine drive was put up between Fremantle and Cool- gardie, the 364 miles of indiffer*n4j$ad and tracks up to the goldfields being negotiated in 9Jhours, giving an average speed of over 38 miles per hour for this section of the overland trip. As Eucla, is a most out of the way place on the Great Australian Bight, Messrs Burton and Bradley will t probably have to wait some time before se- curing a passage by boat to Adelaide. It was a most unfortunate ending to w...
