HOW TO GET A HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 24 January 1929
HOW TO GET A HOUSE. Look into almost any pool upot the rocky parts of the beach and you wjll see winkle and whelk shells prat tling about with amazing activity. None of the little snails 1h.it built i the shells could raore so rapidly. As a matter of ir*et, the original builder has in almost every case been devoured by the present tenant of the house. The cousins of the hermit crab arc provided by Nature with a solid armour plating for their bodies, but ' he possesses a long soft tail which has no protection, and for this rea son he is regarded7 by -most fish as a delicacy. His only hope is to find some unsuspecting whelk, whose shell will do admirably as a protection for his tail. His long claws enable him to haul out the shellfish, and having dined on the late tenant he proceeds to occupy his house, into whjch he inserts his unprotected tail. If you look at a hermit crab, you will notice that one of his claws is larger than the other. This arrange ment provides him not only with a...

SALVATION ARMY ? ♦ ? £ULOGY OF THE GENERAL ' A PURE AND FINE UFE Paris. January 22. Commissioner Peyron, head of the Salvation. Array in France, who voted for General Booth's deposition from the leadership duriug the proceeding.- ol the High Council in London, said that, in the course of the long deliberations, there was never any question that the General was lacking in tact, in his man agement of the Army finances, or that lie accepted for himself or his family o% any gifts or emoluments which were not permitted' by the rules. There was no attack on his high moral probity, hi. profound business sense or his disinter estedness. 'General Bramwcll Booth leaves the Salvation Army a legacy of a pure an.-] fine life,' 'he said. 'He was a great servant of God and humanity, and if I -asked that he be relieved of his post 611 account of age and failing health, J still count myself as a friend and dis ciple of Braniwell Booth.' a
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 24 January 1929
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Half a saltspoonful of carbonate of soda added to milk when the latter is being heated prevents it curdling in summer. For cleaning pearl-handled knives use very fine salt, and polish with a chamois leather. Butter can be measured without scales if a dessertspoonful is reckon ed as one ounce. Bread dries quickly if exposed to the air in hot weather. It should be wrapped in a damp cloth and kept in the dark. In hot weather butter is best laid on a brick in a pan of cold water. It should be covered with a flower pot, over which a damp muslin is placed. After ihe spring-cleaning is finish ed, the housewife usually replaces many articles. All new glass articles ' even lamp-glasses and tumblers. should be placed in a vessel of cold water and brought very gradually to the boil then drained and thoroughly dried. New casseroles will have double the life if they are treated in the same way. To remove grass stains from linen or muslin dresses, . rub the spots thoroughly with ...

POOR BUT BRIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 24 January 1929
POOR BUT BRIGHT. — ? r-^T ? 'Brighter days, brighter clothes,' is the maxim of human beings, but we are not so fortunate as when 'a fuller crimson comes on the robin'e breast.' We have to buy new clothes. The change in our birds is not always effected by a change of raiment. In common with a host of other birds, they put on brighter clothes for the sunny days, and their very striking appearance suggests a total '.ransformation. But the crimson waistcoat of the robin and linnet, and 'the black gor eet of the sparrow is no other than their winter waistcoats worn bare. Ah, if only our old clothes grew brighter ! What happens In the case of cer tain birds is this. When 'they moult in aiitamn, the new breast feathers are provided with long 'fringes which us the warm days return again, are ehed, revealing the glory hidden be neath.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 24 January 1929
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. How annoying it is to hear people who have lived on the Continent tall; as if ao one in Australia could, make good coffee ! Many people can't, of course— or, ' rather, don't, for they are not prepared to give just that nicety and care to it which are es sential. First, make a jug thoro .i ly hot, then put in the coffee, which must be freshly roasted and freshly ground.. Allow a good.tablespoon ful to each half pint of water, and add just a pinch of salt to bring out the flavour. Next pour on the water making sure that it is freshly boiled, for unless it is the coffee will have a flat taste. S£ir well, stand the jug in a saucepan of boiling water, cover the jug to keep in the aroma, !and leave for three minutes. , Then stir a second time, and leave for about five minutes longer, until the grounds have settled. Finally, strain ofi the f ofiee^ through a fine ^strainer into a really hot earthenware cofiee-pot, and serve with plenty of hot milk. Some of the commonest mi...

IHFANT HEALTH CLINIC Annual grant by council A DESERVING CAUSE A letter from the secretary of the Infant Health Association,asking for an annual grant of £25, provoked Some discussion at the meeting o,f the Mun icipal Council last night. - Or. Lester asked if it was a fact that a clinic was to be installed in the stables of the old residency^ If so, it was a downright insult to the mo; thers of Geraldton.' Surely decent quarters could be seemed in the cen tre of the town. Or. Foster, as a member of the In fant Health Association, explained that tne question of the suitability of the stables had been thrashed out by the Association Committee. He, himself, had Ibeen strongly opposed to the sug gestion, until lie inspected the buildings and realised; they Trcre quite suitable for th& purpose. Unfortunately the association could not get %, room in the centre of the town. The 'Mayor said he had seen the ''pre- mises since', they had been, renovated, and found 'they were clean and...
