A STRANGE SHAMPOO. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 24 July 1914
A STRANGE SHAMPOO. I was much interested to learn .from this young woman with the beautiful glossy hair that she never washes it with soap or artificial shampoo powders. Instead she makes her own shampoo by dissolv ing a teaspoonful of stallax gra nules in a cup of hot water. "I make my chemist get the stallax for me," said she. "It comes only in.-jib. sealed packages, enough to make up twenty-five or thirty indi vidual shampoos, and it smells so good I could almost eat it." Cer tainly this little lady's hair did. look wonderful even if she has strange ideas of a shampoo. I am temp tod to try the plan myself.

THE KILLING OF SUPERFLUOUS HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 24 July 1914
THE KILLING OF SUPERFLUOUS HAIR. It is easy to remove superfluous hair temporarily, but to remove it permanently is quite another mat ter. Not many women know that for this purpose such a simple sub stance as powdered pheminol may be used, applied directly to the hair. The recommended treatment is de signed not merely to instantly re move the hair, but also to even tually kill the roots entirely. Al most any chemist could supply ail ounce of pheminol, which quantity should be sufficient. , . A simple way to quickly neutralise disagree able body odours is to dust the armpits occasionally with powdered £white) perg-ol.

IS POWDER NECESSARY? [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 24 July 1914
IS POWDER NECESSARY ? I say emphatically, No ! There is a simple lotion which can be-easily and cheaply made at home, and it is at the same time both effective and beneficial to the complexion. Cleminite is a splendid substitute for faco powder, which is_ at the bot-. ^tom of my complexion troubles., Get about an ounce from the-chem ist's and dissolve in four table-, spoonfuls of water. The result is a fine clear liquid, which, instantly gives the face, -neck, or arms that | peach-like bloom of perfect health. There is nothing to equal it for greasy skins, and the result lasts all day long under the most trying conditions. Try it for the next dance.
FALLING HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 24 July 1914
FALLING HAIR. How often \vc hear the lament, " I have tried everything on the mar ket, and my hair comes out in handfuls." Not so surprising either when you come to think it over. Hair tonics to be effective must be fresh, and there is no earthly reason why, every woman -should not make her oWn lotion at home. The finest vegetable tonic I know of is made by mixing a packet of boranium with -J- pint of bay rum and adding sufficient water to fill a half-pint bottle. This lotion rubbed briskly into the scalp sets the hair roots tingling with new life, and will, if persevered with, give you back your "crowning glory."
Artful Dog. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 24 July 1914
Artful Ddgf. + A youag Army officor owned a smart spaniel. Among other tricks, tho officor trained the clog to an swer "letter call" and fetch his owner's letters to the mess-table. Floascd with tho dog's intelligence, tho officer foil into tho habit of giv ing him a lump cf sugar from tho breakfast-table. One morning, soon after the bug ler had sounded "letter call," tho spaniel came in with neither papers nor letters. Tins was unusual, for tho officer subscribed to a daily paper that invariably arrived in the morning's post, but he thought little of it at the time. About eleven o'clock, however, the dog en tered his master's quarters and do posited a muddy paper upon the floor. The officer did not under stand the situation, but he gave the dog a lump of sugar. Later the dog appeared with a letter in his mouth. Then the owner's suspicions were aroused. He gave the dog another lump of sugar and watched him. He soon found that the dog had buried the morning's post in the rear of the ...
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 24 July 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Vegetable and fruit stains on the fingers can be~ removed by dipping the fingers in very strong tea for few minutes and then wusliing them in clear, warm water. To mako meat cooked in a gas oven juicy, place a jam jar half filled with cold water at the bot tom of the oven. The steam rising from the water makes the air in the oven moist and prevents the meat from getting hard. Before frying the breakfast bacon, cut off the rind and dip each rasher in flour ; then fry or grill quickly. This prevents the fat from running and gives the bacon a bet ter flavour. The problem ol rust stains has been solved by holding the dam aged fabric in boiling ehubarb water. When washing and rinsing colour ed materials add a teaspoonful of Epsom salts to each gallon of water, and even the most delicate shades will neither fade nor run. j Serge or merino dresses, which have ? been dyed black, can be .safely wash- j ed in this way without any risk of 1 the dye running. j After using a bow...
Selling Old Guns. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 31 July 1914
Selling Old Guns. 1 i Huge profits and a spice of dan j'ger' are the chief attractions of gun-running. A market for the arms and ammunition that important countries discard as obsolete can be found in partly-civilised districts and amongst rebel societies. Rus sian Terrorist committees, Indian hill tribes, and Arabs are the chief buyers of old guns. A few years ago a London firm were offering for sale a million single-shot rifles which one of the smaller European States had dis carded. In or del* to get them right out of their country . and thus away from revolutionaries, the State had sacrificed them for a mere song. The London company bought them,.and was ready to dis pose of, them at a slight profit. Pathans on the Indian slopes would dearly have loved to get hold of some of these 'rifles, for a hill na tive will risk his life creeping into the British frontier posts by jiight i n order to steal . Tommy's firearms. Immense profit is to be made, therefore, by smuggling . guns into...
THE LADY SEXTON. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 31 July 1914
THE LADY SEXTON. At Crowland, near Spalding, Lincolnshire, a remarkable church controversy has suddenly developed as a. consequence of tho action of the .Rev. S". C. Calver, the new rector of Crowland Abbey, in dis charging the ladv sexton (Miss S. J. Hill). The appointment has been in the Hill family for nearly 200 years. The sextons during that time havo been her brother, her father, her grandfather, her great-grandfather, and her great-great grandfather. Of the latter a tablet in Crowland Abbey records the fact that he lost his sight by walking in a snow storm when forty years ol age, but, despite this, he could go into the churchyard and find easily every grave he was desired to point out Mr. Calver was recently appointed rector, and a few weeks ago he gave the lady notice co leave tho Abbey cottage, a house built many years ago specially for the sexton. At the Exeter vestry, as soon as the ordinary business had been transacted, the rector declared the meeting closed,' and ho de...
Wagner and His Daughter. [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 31 July 1914
Wagner and His Daughter. A In the action recently brought in the Berlin Courts by Frau Isolde Beidler for the legal recognition of her claim to call herself a daugh ter of Richard Wagner, the plain tiff's lawyer submitted to the Court what he . considered conclusive proof of the justness of his client's plea. It was a piece ol doggerel which was addressed to her by the great composer on her fifteenth birthday, and which may be translated somewhat as follows : When you were born-to-day 'tis .-fif teen years- : " . The curious world pricked up its countless ears; For "Tristan and Isolde" 'twas on fire; But as for me, my ono and sole de sire Was for Isolde, who should calle mo sire. Now may she have a thousand years alive, And "Tristan and Isolde" no less thrive. , This document was expected to play an important part in de termining the judgment of the Court. The Conrt, it has .since been cabled, ruled that Isolde must prove that marital relations existed between her mother and Wagner ...

WHICH LEG? [Newspaper Article] — West Wimmera Mail and Natimuk Advertiser — 31 July 1914
WHICH LEG ? t In a small town in the West of Scotland the town clerk, who was a bit of a "character," had the mis fortune to lose liis leg in a railway accident. As a mark of appreciation and es teem for his long services, the coun cil unanimously agreed to replace his loss with an artificial limb, which they did ns soon as he was sufficiently recovered. A few months afterwards the town clerk, who was generally known by his Christian name, Paul, was un fortunate enough to have his other leg fractured iu a trap accident. Naturally the mishap became food for town gossip, and one old wife, in discussing the matter with a neighbour, was overheard saying : "It's a gey bad business for Paul, puir man ; but is't his am leg or the leg that belangs to tho toon that's broken *?"

George Gunning, a taciturn Eng lishman, who was recently released from gaol in America, where he had been detained for stealing dia monds from the. house of a New York physician, confessed that 'he had robbed there and in Europe be cause of his affection for two little English orphan girls.

Hunger drove him to a pleasure park, where suc j cour came to him^ from two little charges of a foundling asylum, i The children were enjoying a picnic | but, seeing him in distress, they gave him buns and cake.
