SUNSHINE NURSERY [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 13 December 1924

SUNSHINE NURSERY As far back as 1914 the foundation the local nursery of Messrs. J. ,iand W. McLeod was laid down. Prior to this date Mr. J. McLeod was em ployed in the Sunshine Gardens at tached to the Harvester Works. In his spare time he had been raising soedlings for a few local gardeners, but the limited demand at that time may be gauged by the fact that an enclosure of a few feet area com prised the infant nursery. From an outside view of McLeod Bros.' nursery to-day only a very limited 'view of its extent and equipment can be gathered, and scarcely an adequate idea of the immense and varied stock of young plants produced upon the premises. The stock are raised under glass or in bush houses, and are grow.n under very hardy conditions, and many growths so raised on local soil and acclimatised do much better than imported plants. The bush houses are well stocked up with hardy ornamental shrubs and trees for out side decoration, such as cotton palms, Phoenix Cariensis and Chamero...

DAMP LINEN DANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 13 December 1924

DAMP LINEN DANGERS. Possibly nothing is attended with more serious consequences than sleeping in damp linen. Persons are frequently assured that the sheets have been at a fire for many hours, but the question in as to what sort of fire, and whether they have been properly turned, so that every part has been exposed to the fire. The fear of creasing the linen prevents many from unfolding it, but health is of first importance.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS, Tapioca should be soaked in water for several hours before being cook. ed. All brass hooks, curtain rings, gas chains, etc., if soaked in cold tea overnight will polish up like new. Wine stains on table linen can an removed by holding the stained part in boiling milk for a few minutes. To keep rugs from rolling up at the corners, sew a heavy iron ring at each corner on the under side. Save the stale bits of cheese, grate them up finely, and keep in a tin for flavouring. When making a milk pudding, add a pinch of salt, and you will not re. quire to put as much sugar as usual. The water in which rice has been boiled makes excellent starch for muslin and thin materials. To keep potatoes a good colour put. a teaspoonful of vinegar into the wa ter just before they are cooked.

A BOY WITH NO COMMON SENSE [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 13 December 1924

A BOY WITH NO COMMON SENSE A two-foot rule was given .to a boy in a shipyard to measure an iron plate with. The boy spent a long time over the job, and then returned to the foreman with a piece of brick and a broken tile in his hand. "Now," said the foreman, "what length is the plate?" "Well," replied the boy, with a look of great pride, "it's the length of your rule, and two thumbs over, with this piece of brick, and this bit of tile, and the breadth of my hand." The silly boy had never tfiought of using the rule in the proper way. He didn't take much interest in his work, so he hadn't troubled to keep his eyes open to see that the meas urements were marked on the rule. If he'd had any gumption, and the rule actually had been without meas urements he could have used it along the whole length of the plate, and re ported to the foreman that the plate was "so many rules long." But he didn't bother to use .his common sense, a quality which we all pos sess if we care to make use of it. ...

BABY WELFARE Proposed Centre for Sunshine .At the Braybrook Shire Council meeting on Monday night Mr. Hume Cook, accompanied by the matron of the Baby Centre movement, waited upon the council with reference to a proposal to establish in Sunshine a baby centre cn the Plunket system, similar to that established at Foot scray. Mr. Cook, in addressing coun cillors, said that they were now in the happy position that the State Go ve?.:ume nt had agreed to find £1 for every £125 to establish a baby health centre per annum. £250 per annum was quite sullicient for a full time centre, iadequately and properly equipped, and with a nurse always in aLtendance. Fortunately out of the £125 required locally Mr. H. V. McKay had promised to subscribe £75 toward s getting- this centre in exis tence. At the outset an expenditure of £40 or £50() would be required, but if an enthusiastic body of ladies were got together this initial expenditure might be reduced to £10. When they had established the centr...
