"A DOG'S CHANCE" [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
A DOG'S CHANCE" By Reeves Shaw [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] "He's just the very dearest duck of a little dog!" said Sylvia, rapturously. "Quaint animal,"' grinned Hawar den, with enjoyment, for it is good to have your gifts appreciated. And he had taken a lot of pains in the selec tion and infantile training of the little collie pup which Sylvia was now so en thusiastically nursing. "Whatever shall we name him?" she asked. "He'll sprout, so you'd better call him that," Hawardeji answered care lessly. Names for animals were fool ish, he thought; he always said quite simply, "Here!" and they came all right, whatever their christening had been. "Eh? But that's such a silly name!" objected Sylvia. "Sprout." The little dog pricked up its ears, and its nose swung round in her di rection. There was something in the lone which suggested food. "Oh. I do believe he really under stands! Sprout, Sprout, Sprout!" she cried, and his tail flapped in re ply. He was sure something tasty was coming for him...

A LION CORNER [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
A IilOX CORNER I have inquiries for a griffin in filet crochet. The griffin is not yet obtain-, able, but this French pattern of a lion is a good substitute; it certainly 'bears: a family resemblance to a French, poodle, but their French poodles are clipped to look like lions. The square is begun on a chain of 67 stitches, 3 used to turn, 1 treble, 2 ch, put into every second stitcli. The blocks are four treble. This square can be used for the fourth corner of a teacloth, the others filled with the kangaroo, emu and jack ass. Folks who are working such cloths to send overseas can include the lion as a compliment to the mother country. By adding a border weighted with beads this square can be used for a fly mat. Laid over a color with a ruche of chiffon it makes a "pin cushion top. It can be inset in linen for a tea cosey. It is very easy to copy from a picture, but if desired is on loan to any one sending1 the illustration and one penny stamp for postage.
PROPOSED TOUR IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
'PROPOSED TOUR IN NEW ZEALAND. A good deal of controversy surrounds the proposed trip of an Australian, team to New Zealand. In discussing the question, Mr Sims, the promoter, is reported to have said that he took the matter in hand, re cognising tvjat the New Zealand Cricket Coun cil had failed in the last two or three years to get an Australian team to visit the Dominion. Mr Sims said he had no diffi culty in securing the support of the playei's, and mentions that he specially requested the New Zealand Cricket Council not to make the suggested arrangement public until details were complete. This is the aspect that is objected to by the Australian Board of Contro . The view is held by members that any request to secure an Australian team to visit the Dominion should have been rrmde to the Board of Control and not to a private pro moter. In the course of the discussion it has been pointed out that had the original scheme been carried through several lead ing players would have been ...

MODERN GIRLS EDUCATIONAL TRAINING METHODS DISCUSSED [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
EDUCATIONAL TRAINING' METHODS DISCUSSED "There is undoubtedly room lor im provement in present-day methods of ediicaiion of girls," was a, view ex pressed by Mr F. Tate, director of Education, when asked to offer some comment on the condemnation of modern girls training by Dr Caroline 3;esel (America). When addressing a National congress on Race Betterment at Battle Creek, Michigan, Dr Desel said that girls were turned out of colleges unfit to achieve a livelihood or motherhood. Such girls were nervous wrecks. Their heads were filled with fancy in formation which sounded well at club meetings, but which was utterly useless when ordering steak. "Graduates of these colleges," Dr Desel continued, "possess a penchant for fashions which are the nearest ap proach to nudity allowed by the law. These colleges are completely failing to train girls in life's problems." Departmental Aims "So far as-the Education Department is concerned," Mr Tate continued, "we are moving steadily if somewhat s...
Fashionable Tunics [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
Fashionable Tunics Changes in the characteristics of the tunic, and also the introduction of pleated basques, are causing the woman who lacks inches much anxiety at present. However, if she heeds the advice of a well known designer, she will take courage and face the new aspect without any temerity. "Do not imagine," said this wise counsellor, "that the new tunics will make a short woman look shorter and a stout woman appear stouter. That only happens when the wrong tunic is selected. The way to get the most suitable length is to stand patiently before the mirror, raising and lowering the material until the length most becoming to the figure is discovered." One attractive feature is that many of the tunics have the lower edges slanting downward and backward. This is a becoming line to stout women. Many tunics are not wired at the edgres, although there is such a persistent cry for the lamp-shad© ef fects. Those who like to be in the first flight of fashion will affect sheath like un...
New Colors [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
Ke\v Colors Among colors mentioned for winter wear, red, _ the rich shade of a dark ruby, is considered the most fasci nating. Other hues likely to assert themselves are copper, dahlia, plum, and old-fashioned "puce." -For hats, weirdly graceful effects are gained with ribbons. These are sometimes fixed in huge loops or bows fastened to a long stem of twisted rib bon. One model will show a single loop rising straight into the air; an other will be ornamented with big "Alsatian" bows, arranged straight in front of the hat. Mounts are extending higher and higher. One wonders how some of the women manage to ride in motors without damaging their hat plumage. There are so many cheap imitations of aigrettes and other light, feathery plumes that a demand for something new is already felt. In Paris the milliners are trying hard to revive in terest in flowers. After all, there is a great charm about a flower-decked hat. This, few women past the first blush of youth will deny. It is for this ...
SOME ORIENTAL ECONOMIES [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
SOME ORIENTAL ECONOMIES The Chinese and Japanese emDroia erers, who do such wonderful work., understand also the value of economis ing time, expense, and trouble. For instance, the hems and seams in some of their goods are made with stitches an inch or more long", tout these sitches are so' arranged as to form themselves a decoration. . To go to another part of the Orient again, Bag dad couch covers are stitched together in strips with very coarse' thread and with very long stitches, hut anything' else would be entirely out of place. Some Japanese articles - are left' without any hem at all, and yet they always look well. Japanese towels can be used for scarfs and furniture; draperies, and with simply the cut ends they look very nice indeed. If any hem at all be added, it should be in coarse thread and large stitches. Curtains of large, open lattice mesh are another article which should not be hemmed, as they always draw. Let them hang straight with the cut edge, and the problem is ...
COBURG V. FOOTSCRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
COBURG V. FOOTSCRAY. A score of 184 served to see Footscray through, and leave them with a substantial winning margin of 91 runs. Having 27 up for 3 wickets, Coburg got to 93, their double fig ures falling to J. Huntington (23), Mailer (IT) and Stranks (12—run out). A. Johnson had 6 wickets for 56 runs, and Lohrey 2 for 6. A long stand was made by Stranks and Lan dells their joint reward, for . an hour and a half of patient defence, being seven runs. Footscray went in a second time, and scored 90 for S wickets, Johnson making 14, and the not outs, Addison and Grunden, 18 and 10 respectively. In this innings Landells did some capital work in attack, represented by an average of 6 for 40.
SCALLOP FOR A CHILD'S FROCK [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
SCALLOP FOR A CHILD'S FROCK ■ To transfer this pattern, lay a piece of impression paper face down on the material. Place the newspaper pat tern in position over this, and with; a hard, sharp pencil firmly trace each line. If the material is transparent this may he laid over the pattern and the design drawn direct, as it shows through. When handled in this way impress ion paper will not be required. To work the scollop, first machine round' the outside. The flowers and leaves are worked solid, the dots as eyelets, the stems in outline stitch. The edge is padded. All white is always i satisfactory, but a good deal of vivid color is introduced as trimming for children's frocks now. Small boys and girls alike have one-piece suits of" drill, liiien; or tussore silk, with collarless necks, with a line of hand work. Often a pocket across the front in bright Bulgarian colors is the only trimming upon a little girl's frock. Coolness and comfort are character istics of dress at the seaside ju...
CAULFIELD V. GEELONG. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
CAULFIELD V. GE'ELONG. xne nrst innings Dy ueeioug was uuw worthy on account of fine entries by Orchard and Baker, who made 58 and 51 respectively. The side totalled 172, Fletcher making 21 and Eason 17. Rayson did the trundling for Caulfield. After paying 21 runs for nothing, he lowered 5 for 37, giving him 5 for 58 al together. Mewett, a promotee from the second team, began well by securing 4 for 34. Caul field had good work from Ward and Ride, whose contributions of 32 and 35 gave con fidence to the others. Among these Rippoa and Rayson added 52 together, their respec tive subscriptions amounting to 45 and 25. By the time Willison and Mewett had passed in 13 apiece, the latter not out, Caul field had 197 up, giving them a winning margin of 25 runs. Orchard bowled well, averaging 9 runs for each of three wickets. A second Geelong innings was something of a failure, Lechte dismissing four men for 32 runs. Seven wickets had fallen for 60 when time expired. Field was then 15 not out,...
CREPE PAPER MATS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914
CREPE PAPER MATS H2ven in a seaside camp or summer cottage clean table appointments are essential. One may make shift with a pocket knife for a tin-opener, and have "posts and rails" in their tea be cause there is no strainer, but a dirty tablecloth spoils the look of the best food. Crepe paper can be used to great advantage as mats' which go under the hot dishes as well as tea and coffee pots. Tan and moss-green are serviceable colors. To make the mats, cut the paper crosswise in three quarter inch strips, and plait it. Wuen joining the ends lay one over the other for an inch or so, and when it has j been plaited clip off the ends close to the strand. After the plait is mad-e, start in the centre, and lay. the braid around and around, with the edge just under the edge of the one above it,. Sew with very fine stitches, short on top and long underneath. For ordinary table use colors match ing the china, combined with white, are very effective, and can be made in oval, square, oblong ...
