TIMBER A NATIONAL ASSET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 November 1924

TIMBER A NATIONAL ASSET. The chairman of the Forestry (;orn mission (Mr. Owen Jones) cannot be called an alarmist; but he is doing good service in directing attention, to the world's timber supply. The notion that Australia need not feel disturbed on that score is put down to the fact that forestry is a little known subject, and that few people take the trouble to get any idea as 'to the existing con ditions. When a visit is made to a district where there is a fair supply of timber there is a feeling that there is no likelihood of a shortage; but experience in Australia has let it be seen that it does not take long to denude a district of 'trees. In the "Argus" of Saturday last there was an article dealing with what had been done in that way in the Otway district, and the illustrations made it clear as to the vast mischief that had been caused. Mr. Jones puts a good deal of this mischief down to the feeling whi2h exists that forestry conserva tion is looked upon as a hindranace. Lar...

VICTORIAN RACING The Fashionable Jockey Craze. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 8 November 1924

VICTORIAN RACING By "Observer." 'The Flashionablt Jockey Craze. At the moment of writing there is luch discontent amongst local jockeys at the pcichant many of the largest owner: are manifesting at the present time t~ give the cream of the mounts to visiting horsemen from Interstate and N'?w Zealand. The local lads say that they ride a horse into form in every manner of small race, and then these importations get the pickings simply because they happen to be the craze of the moment. There is, of course, a great deal of jealousy in a stateriient like this and its outlook, but that does not diminish one iota the truth of the grouse. Scan the list of jockeys with mounts in the Cup and other big events. Without mentioning any names, are ,there not one or two missing from l.he saddle of a poplular pick or two who have every right to expect to be there? It is all rubbish to say that the "importations" are any more skilled than our own boys, that is the best of them. If they are not what i...

The All-Australian , Exhibition it is pleasing to record that the at tenloulliceat the I l .t?I i'iii a?la ll eixtixl i Lion conItiLnues to be most satisfactory. The imain object of the exhibition is to show that, althouglr the bulk of Australia's wealth is cidrived from her iprimary products,, her secondary in ou-tries cover a wide range. When fir Robert Gibson explained the rca son for holding the exhibition he said that it was not to provide entertain iment or a place of amusement for the colm'nunlty, but to bring before the people of Australia the quality and range of goods which are .now manu tactured w?iithin the ctommonwealth. There is an inclination to overlook this, and consequently the majority of the people visiting the exhibition are amtiazed at the wide diversity of Aus tralian mnanul'act ures. Indeed, the conclusion come to by many visitors is to consider that there is .not an article used in the service of man which is not made in Australia. ''The genceral public poss...

FOR YOUNG FOLKS. YOUTH WITH MARVELLOUS MEMORY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 15 November 1924

FOR YOUNG FOLKIS. -o r-OUTH WITH. MARVELLOUS MEMORY. A truitseller in Florence maore than two centuries ago had in his employment a boy- named Antonio Magliabeohl, a .plain-looking lad, whose clott?E wore ragged and un tidy, and who was so Ignorant that he aould not even read, his parents being too poor to send him to school. All the same Antonio was continu ally poring over the leaves of old books which were used for waste paper in the shop. A neighbouring bookseller, know ing the bc~y ignorance, asked him one day what he meant by staring so hard at printed papers. Antonio replied that he did not know how it was but that he loved anything printed. "I should be the happiest creature in the world," said he, "if I could liiO with you, who have so many books about you." The bookseller was both astonish ed and pleased with his answer, and told Antonio that he would be willing to take him as a shop boy 11 his present master consented to let him go. Most likely the boy displayed no talent...

IDEAL FLOOR-COVERING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 15 November 1924

IDEAL FLOUOR-COVEr! ING. There are two ways whereby a perfectly sanitary floor covering may be obtained, viz., either by ,taining the boards or by using cork lino. The latter is preferred because it is ,warmer and coatier, and ale-o because the modern linoleumn have been brought to such a pitch of perfection that some ofi the ?at er~ can scarce ly be distinguished from the most expensive form of carpet.. Rlch and beantiful colourings :le to be obtain ed, the surface is soft to the touch, and rust and gernms fi1l no restinig place such as carp·c:.? aiford. Cork lino should never be scrubbed and washed with soap or soda; it should be rubbed daily with a house flanne) (one tablespoonful of paratfin to one bucket of water), and then polished with beeswax and turc!e ntine. By these means the pattern Ji nreserved and a long life for the Jinoleum as sured. Moreover, the use of oaraffin 'preventd the appearanc'e or insects, which is a thing to be remembered, especially in old housec. A plai...

DON'T BE FUSSY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 15 November 1924

DON'T BE FPUSSY, Especially in the summer, for if you do you will assuredly eoncounter a sad fate. You will look hot and worried, whicn Is not becomiing by any moans, and you will be far from popular, which is a pity. Men, even more than women, have a horror of the girl N6ho "fusses." They avoid her if possible, and if not they submit for the time being and determine to run no chance in future of being wearied in the same way again. One can't help feeling sorry for the "fusser," all the sante. You see, she really does mean so well. She wants the picnic to be the very clceen of picnics, and quite forgets that more goes to making it a succeas than driving anyone diLtracted by ques tions and reproaches. Or she, perhaps, is doing a kind ness to a neighbour, but contrives to spoil it by exactly the arme foolish proceedings. So, whatever else you do, don't russ. Men fear and loathe a fusser, and oven her own sex avoid her. And, as remarked before, the habit of fuss ing is unbecoming and h...

And the effiorts we make seem to stimulate our brains so well that we generally succeed. This is true, of course, in the world of business, but it is true in other ways? Can a glrl, for ipstance, make herself pretty or charming or clever? Yes, she can; just as a man can become rich or famous, or the 1i)r, by dint of determination and good sense. She can study herself candidly, make the most of her good points and the least of her bad. She can deny herself pleasant. thinigs to ac quire a pretty figure and good com ploxion. A dl Iher ,lffors will certain. ly succeed beyond her hopes. As for charm, she n tmust always steadily persist in being hugely Inter ested in people and thiniig.-genuinely interested, and if she does that every one will find her delightful because sympathetic.
