Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
a Waters of tie Moon 's Heliclon Sp Healing Mineral Springs r Helidon Spa is one of Nature's most bountiful gifts to Australia. By the force of its own aeration it shoots many feet in the air, from a depth of over one thousand feet below the earth's sur face. Compounded in Na ture's great laboratory, it is far superior to any artifici ally-prepared mineral water, the best and the worst of which are merely man-made imitations of the work of the great Alchemist. .. -T/ LL mineral waters possess certain medicinal properties, and Helidon Spa has "been proved by analysis to closely approxi mate in quality to that of the world-famous German spa at Baden Baden. Wherever mineral springs exist, man has not "been slow to appreciate their curative qualities. When the first white men came to Helidon the blacks told them of the wonder ful health-giving water, which made the sick strong and the strong stronger. The Brisbane tribes spoke of them as "Gooneel Goong," which means "water from the moon...

THE WEEKLY TIMES SATURDAY, JANUARY 24, 191[?]. TWO NEGLECTED INDUSTRIES [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
SATURDAY, JANUARY 24, 191*. TWO NEGLECTED INDUSTRIES About two years ago bitter com-' plaints were heard from farmers who had raised or fattened droves of pigs, and were unable to find a remunera tive market. In many cases where roads were bad and distances long, the ruling rates hardly paid for transit, let alone the other charges incidental to stock raising. To-day in the dif ferent markets of the State the de mand is entirely above the supply. During the holidays many housewives were compelled to eliminate the cus tomary piece of ham or bacon from the Christmas menu; and at present the high prices ruling preclude these articles from a place on many a sub urban table. This is an anomalous position in a country in which the dairying industry is so firmly estab lished. Denmark, the country to which Australians turn for guidance in these matters, sends one million carcases of pork to the British con sumer annually. The trade in pigs, therefore, adds materially to the in come of the D...

GENERAL NOTES Women Accountants [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
Women Accountants - Victorian women are still denied en-, trance to the Institute of Accountants, yet numbers of business men admit that women show particular aptitude for, accountancy work. ^ In view of this opposition, it is inf.' teresting to know that a woman is re'r sponsible for keeping the accounts oft the Post Office, Savings Bank, London/* considered to be one of the greatest banking' institutions in the world. Her name is Miss M. C. Smith, and her position is that of superintendent of women clerks. The accounts of 10,000,000 depositors depend on her, in the final analysis, for accurate keep ing. She thinks that women, far from being constitutionally deficient as | mathematicians, have a particular i faculty for figures, and. that all that is needed to bring it out is training. ! To prove her point, she calls atten tion to the fact that when she first became superintendent, more than thirty years ago, there were only 60 women in her charge, nearly all the work being in the ...

VINES AND WINES PHYLLOXERA DISEASE THE RAVAGES DESCRIBED VALUE OF RESISTANT VINES [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
. PHYLLOXERA- DISEASE — '—C, . ' s _ THE RAVAGES DESCRIBED VALUE OF RESISTANT VINES Mr G. H. Adcock, Principal of the Viticultural Station, Rutherglen, states . that by the introduction of phylloxera into Victoria nearly forty years ago. this important industry received a temporary set-back, from which it is now steadily recovering:, thanks to re constitution with American resistant vines. Among1 those who first secured some of these supposed viticultural desiderata was Mr H. King, of the Fairview Nursery, Fyansford, near Geelong. In 1877, on November .7, this gentleman's attention was attracted to a couple of his vines that were not thriving like the rest. A careful ex amination of the roots revealed the cause in the dreaded phylloxera, then seen living for the . first time in Vic toria. A thorough inspection failed to discover the pest at that time to any extent in the vineyard. So rapidly, however, did it spread that, when the vines were uprooted some six months later, it could b...
Notes from Paris [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
i Notes from Paris Pins and other hair ornaments have i assumed a new guise for women of ! fashion. Those of imitation tortoise shell amber or metal lead the way. Metal ornaments are frequently studded with rhinestones. SL*arge tortoise shell combs or big- gold pins are most becom ing hair clasps. Some women are dressing the hair very simply, coiling it tightly and adorning it with either | a tortoise shell fork or an ornament in green jasper. Peacock feathers are to be the rage for the evening coiffure, j Tunics with the crinoline effect are now ! kept widened out by bands of fur. When th§y first appeared fine wire was used to gain this effect. Drapery swathed tightly about the hips has taken the place of the broad waist band or fancy belt. For the winter, fashions will be in fluenced by the Persian and the periods of the Directoire Louis XIV., and the Second Empire. To wear with tailored suits the mus keteer glove is correct. Some of these • fasten at the wrist by means of a leath...
