OBITUARY. LATE MR JOHN SPALDING. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 5 January 1916

OBITUARY. ■I . LATE MR JOHN SPALDING. It is our painful duty to have to record the death of Mr John Spalding, which occurred as the result of an accident which he met with last Friday morning. From what can be gathered, it appeals that on the day in question Mr Spalding, accom panied by his four youngest sons,varying in ages from two to six years, left his home in CreBsy and drove to the milk receiving depot near Kilburnie bridge with some cans of cream. He got there safely, and delivered the cream. On the way coming back the mare he was driving got the reins under her tail,and in tryine to free them Mr Spalding put his foot on the shafts and one hand on the mare, when the animal gave a sudden jump and swerve, capsising the buggy into a deep drain, and fell over on her side. Deceased, apparently, must have been underneath the buggy, and that the mare in struggling* to get up kicked him. The fou r young children either jumped or were thrown out, the youngest one of two years being th...

AN EFFECTIVE EMBROIDERY. [Newspaper Article] — Cressy and Lismore Pioneer and Western Plains Representative — 5 January 1916

AN EFFECTIVE 'EMBROIDERY. Among the most recent arrivals, or perhaps we should say revivals, of the season is cretonne embroidery. In spite of its effective and extremely handsome appea ranee, it is very easily accomplished, a rid it costs next to nothing. One can choose either a hold or delicately patterned cretonne, but in any ease the design must be definite, as it has to he cut out with a. sharp pair of scissor*, and appliqued on to a foundation. The latter may be net, ninon, cloth—what you will. Then embroidery sill:, picking up the colours in the cretonne, is par 'tially stitched over the design. Such an embroidery would be just the thing to trim a rest gown, white Ot toman silk being used for the .foun dation, and a hold, somewhat conven tional Oriental patterned cretonne selected.
