Federal Issues MR COOK'S POLICY SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914

Federal Issues Mil COOK'S POU' Y .-VWEOR. The Liberal poltoy which the Prime Miuister oflicially announced at Parro matta 011 Wednesday, is wide, vigor* OUB, practical. To say that it is open to lioi.pst criticism, IB nimply to admit that it deals with live issues and tlmt on such issies men always have dif ? fered, always' will differ. But Labor will have to cast) about it for some argument in pluco of the sorely ovor worked assertion, that Liberalism bonBts only a neoklace of negations, for Mr Oook outlined work for the Federal Parliament, the right doing of which would make the three years from September 1914 to Sep tember 1917 memorable Firsb and foremost, Mr Cook pub "the preservation of the principle of responsible government." To that, captious critics have taken exception, contending that this plank binds Mr Oook to the championship of the party system with all its defects. No contention could be shallower.

FALLING HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914

FALLING HAIR. . How oflcn we hear.the lament, "I have tried everything .on the mar ketiv'aniiiny-hnir conies out in handfuls." Not so surprising either when you' come to think it over. Hair tonics to be effective must he fresh, nnd there is no cnrthlv reason why. every woman should not make her ow'n lotion at home. The finest vegetable tonic I know of is made by mixing n packet of boranium with | pint of bny rum and adding sufficient water to fill a half-pint bottle. This lotion rubbed briskly into the scalp sets the hair roots tingling with now life, and will, if persevered with, give you back your "crowning glory."

A STRANGE SHAMPOO. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914

A STRANGE SHAMPOO. I was much interested to learn from thin young woman with the beautiful glossy hair that she never washes it with soap or artificial shampoo powders. Instead she tnakes her own shampoo by dissolv ing a teaspoonful of dtallax gra nules in a cup of hot water. "I make my chemist get the stallnx for me," said she. "It comes only in £ lb. sealed packages, enough to nrnko up twenty-five or thirty indi vidual shampoos, and it smells so good I could almost oat it." Cer tainly this little lady's hair did j look wonderful oven if she has strange ideas of a shampoo. I am tempted to try the plan myself.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Vegetp.bla and fruit stains on the fingers can bo" removed, by dipping the lingers in very strong tea for a few minutes and then washing them in clear, warm water. To make meat cooked in a gas oven juicy, piaco a jam jur half filled' with cold water at tho . bot tom of tho oven. . The steam .rising from tho water makes the air in tho oven moist and prevonts the meat from getting hard. Beforo frying the breakfnst bacon, cut off the rind and dip each rasher in flour; then fry or grill quickly. This prevents the fat from running and gives tho bacon a bet ter flavour. The problem of rust stains has been solved by holding the dam aged fabric in boiling ehubarb water. When washing and rinsing colour ed materials add a teaspoonful of Epsom suits to each gallon of water, and even tho most delicate shades will neither fade nor run. Serge or merino dresses, which have been dyed black, can be .safely-wash ed in this way without any risk of tho dye running. After using a bowl o...

IS POWDER NECESSARY? [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914

IS I'OWDEU NECESSARY ? I say emphatically, No ! There is a simple lotion which can be easily nnd cheaply made at home, and it is at the same time both effective and bencficial to the complexion. Cleniinite is a splendid substitute for face powder, which is at the bot tom of my complexion troubles. Get about an ounco from the chem ist's and dissolvo in four tnblc spoonfuls of water. The result is a fine clear liquid, which instantly gives the face, neck, or arms that poach-liko bloom of perfect health. There is nothing to equal it for greasy skins, and the result lasts all day long under the. most trying conditions. Try it for the next dance.

Off the Target. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914

Off the Target. Put and Murphy, since both had fallen in love with the same wo man, became involved in a deadly feud. There seemed to be only one way of settling the matter-a duel. Pistols were agreed upon at twenty pares. But when the stout Mur phy saw his lean adversary . facing him, he began immediately, to raise objections. ' ' ; "Bedad," he'said, "I'm twice fas big a target as he is, so 1 ought to stand twice as far away from him as he is from me." Pat's "second" treated this amaz ing proposition quite seriously, and for a long while stood thought ful and puzzled. -Then : "There's no need for that," ho said. "Be aisy, now. I'll soon put the matter right." Taking a pieco of chalk from his pocket, he drew two lines down the stout Murphy's cont, leaving a space between them. "Now," he remarked, turning to Pat, "blaze away, yo spalpeen, and remember that any hits outsido the chalk lines don't count !"

Shaving Made Easy. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 24 July 1914

Shaving Made Easy. I No genius has yet arisen awl in vented a machine to undress you anil tuck you up in bed, but wo are getting on ! The unhappy man who daily strug gles with a hard board in the chilly hour before breakfast may take cheer from the thought that an electric razor lias- boon invonted by some benefactor. This machine is a safety razor, connected to a motor by means of a flexible shaft. The blades aro ac tuated in such a way as to cut the beard by impact, or blows. This means that the razor docs not need to be so sharp as in hand-shaving. Another advantage is that soap is not necessary, merely wetting the skin being quite sulllcient. A fur ther boon is that it is very much quicker. The after-clTi'ets of this method are snid to rcsoiriblo \hose following a mild faco massage. A plug is pro vided for attaching the razor to any ordinary lamp-socket. It sometimes takes a year for the bite of a rat to heal up. 1938.

THE KILLING OF SUPERFLUOUS HAIR. It is easy to remove superfluous hnir temporarily, but to rcmovs it permanently is quite onothor mat ter.

Tho recommended ? treatment is de signed not merely to instantly re move the hair, but ulso to oven tualiy kill the roots entirely.

Selling Old Guns. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 31 July 1914

Selling Old Guns. I Huge profits cuid _ a spico of dan I ger 1 are tho chief attractions of gun-running. A market for the arms and ammunition that important i countries discard as obsolete can be | found .in partly-civilised districts; and amongst rebel societies. Rus sian Terrorist committees, Indian | hill tribes, and Arabs are the chicf .buyers of old guns. A fow . years ago a London firm were offering . for sale a million single-shot rifles which one of the smaller European States had dis carded. In order to get them right out . of their country and thus away from revolutionaries, tho State had sacrificed them * for a mere song. The London company bought then), and was ready to dis pose of them ut a slight, profit. Fathnns on tho Indian slopes would dearly have loved to get hold of some of these rifles, for a hill na tive will risk his life creeping into the British frontier posts by night in order to steal Tommy's firearms. Immense profit is to be made, therefore, by smuggling ...

THE INCREASE IN CROSSBRED SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 31 July 1914

THE INCREASE IN CROSSBRED SHEEP. The Review states that the rapid increase iu crossbred sheep in the southern portion of Australia and Tasmania is such that very Boon one half of the toml wool clip in Australia will Im composed of oilier wo:>ls than iho*o of the pure niprino. This in cie<se in BiitUh breeds and r.ross'ireds is due to the increased demand for meat in the world's markets. Inci dentally, of course, this is enhancing the price of pure merino wool. Not withstanding this increase in price for fine merino wool, the great value of the British breeds and crosBbreds to the farmer and small pastoralist for both wool and mutton will continue to exert a powerful influence on the future of i ho Australian wool clip. More aDd more the greater portion of the clip will be made up of wool from other than pure merino flocks. One disquieting note in the review of the wool industry for the past year is the small increase in the flocks 1,044,000 in Australia and 845,0C0 in ...
