LAUNDRY HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 29 August 1914
LAUNDRY HINTS. Never wring linen with a clothes wringfer. It makes Wrinkles that are hard to iron out. Starched clothes are easier to iron if sprinkled with hot water half an hour before ironing. Do not pad the ironing board with wool blankets, which hold moisture ture and make your clothes difficult to iron. Cover the top with a thick lay er of cotton batting—one pound will be sufficient—then cover with one thickness of cotton flannel, drawing the cloth tightly and sewing or tack ing on the underside. Cover this in the same way with one thickness of smooth muslin, and you will find an excellent surface for ironing. Starch for a black lawn dress, that will make it look like new and will not show on the surface of the dress goods, can be made in this way—Take black dye, dissolved as you would for coloring, and keep it bottled. Make llie starch quite thin, strain the dye and mix a little of it with the starch. Proceed as usual and the dress will look like a new one when laundered. It ...
IS THE MODERN GIRL DOMESTICATED ENOUGH? [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 29 August 1914
I i IS THE MODERN GIRL i DOMESTICATED ENOUGH? Some men seem to labor under the idea that women were born to be slaves. These selfish beings are con stantly bewailing the fact, as they put it, that our girls grow less and less domesticated as the generation progresses. They are alarming themselves un necessarily, for when the average girl gets married she generally takes to domesticity as naturally as a duck to water, even if she has had but lit tle previous experience. There are, of course, exceptions to the rule, and probably those people who love to pick holes in the modern girl's habits base their observations on these ex ceptions. Certainly girls have more liberty, and do not spend as much time in the home as their grandmothers. And why not? They have as much right to enjoy their liberty as men. When a sensible girl contemplates mar riage she makes it her business to get to know the ropes, so that she may fill the role of housewife with credit to herself and. all concerned; but ...

AN HOUR WITH NEOLITHIC MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 29 August 1914
AN HOUR WITH NEOLITHIC MAN. J The discovery of the now famous human skull in the Piltdown gravel pit near Lewes has added much to our Knowledge of Palaeolithic man, but we are still unable to form an accur ate picture of the appearance of that interesting person. With regard to men of the succeeding, or Neolithic ags, anthropologists can outlin; a sketch which in its main features may be verified by known facts. The scientific examination of skeletons aiul burial-gilts, the excavation of grave-mounds and earthworks, the comparison of British relics with those of French caverns or Swiss lake dwellings, the study of skulls and hair and eyes have yielded clear testimony concerning the folk who lived in Bri tain four thousand years ago. To present a picture the "flowing vesture" of time must be disturbed a little, so that we may peer backwards into the prehistoric age. We have to imagine an England somewhat larger than the one which we now know. Its area must be extended outwards until,...

SOON ROUSED HER. "IE we could rouse her from this apathy," said the doctor, turning from the patient with a worried look, "there might be some hope. If she could bo made to speak we might make her re r.liae hur condition un«l to make an effort to save herself." He turned to the husband, who knelt by the bed, his haggard face buried in the white counterpane. "You understand her so well," said the physician, almost irritably, "can't you say or do something that will arouse her from this stupor? Isn't there anything you could do that would awaken her?" A look of hope lighted the husband's pale face. He rose without a word and left the house. It was midnight. The watchers by the bedside heard the rain pelting against the side of the house and whistling around the corners of the old homo. A step sounded on the gravel walk outside. In another second there was a click of a latch-key fumb ling in the keyhole of the front door. The restless turning of the sick wo man's head upon the pillow s...
