HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 20 December 1924

HOUSEHOLD HINTS, - ---4.--.· When cleaning a grate, mix the blaokload with a little turpentine. For cleaning hearth tiles, try a oroam made of soft soap and skim milk. Boot polish which has become dry can be successfully softened with a few drops of turpentine. Oxidised photo frames can be cleaned with plate powder, applied dry. Polish with a soft cloth. To polish mahogany, wipe with a cloth wrung out in cold water, then rub for twenty minutes with a dry cloth. A teaspoonful of" powdered borax added to the water in which clothes are rinsed will be found to whiten them considerably. When washing knives, never allow the handles to soak in the water, as it not only loosens them, but turns them yellow. To clean a sink quickly, dip a wad of paper into soime paraffin and rub the sink with it. Rinse well with warm water. Fruit stains on linen should be smeared witll glyc('rine and left for about an hour; tihen wash the stains in warml soapy water; repeat the process if niecessary. To clean...

Sunshine Advocate SATURDAY, DEC. 20, 1924 [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 20 December 1924

Sunshine Advocate SATURDAY, DEC. 20, 1924 -- ----` ~-~--- --7 . .. Miss McMahon, teacher in St Mary's Catholic School, Sunshine, was the recipient yesterday of a handsome present from the parents and children connected with the school, on the eve of her departure for her holidays, as a taken of their high esteem. A new church is being built in De vonshire Road, Sunshine, for the Pen tocastal followers of Christianity. A peculiar feature of the building is the inclusion of a closely walled brick chamber in the rear of the building, the only opening being a door out wards. The Pentacostal community favor baptism by immersion, and this chamber may have something to do with that ceremony. The Sunshine branch of the A.N.A. met on 1st ipst. when the president, Mr Ml'Bride, occupied the chair and officers as per roll. Reports on sick members showed three. One new member was elected, and Mr E. Smith welcomed Mr O'Shannassy from the Creswick branch. .The president (Mr M'Bride) has generously...

MATTERS FEMININE. WHAT IS BEAUTY? [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 20 December 1924

MATTERS FEMININE. WHAT IS BEAUTY? To this often asked question there are as many replies as there are questionors. tFor the eye brings with it its own power of iueing; and what Ia the delight of one man is the aver. sion of another. In she pmtil.e and plump, blue-eyed and rosy? I'he is a pal:ct V1enus to one, to another an insignificant little thing! The handsome, tawny-shinned, vel vet-eyed dlaughter of the South, and the lily-like mald of the North, have no such magnetisml for the inscrut able Chinaman1 as his own almond. eyed girl of the Flowery L,and. And probably, even the coal-black nlitiveL of Central Africa has a standard ol loveliness that Venus herself could not meet. That is Nature's kindly rule; to someone every giirl is fair; to soime one she is full of charm. Every maid can be fair if she choo.se; everyone l cinuat.i ig, if she will. "W hat i. beauty?"'' has as many answers a: "\'hat is truth?" And all alike have rc?-sorn in tI cin.

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 20 December 1924

POULTRY .NOTES. By "Tight Feather." It is worth a little thought as to the cause of the death of hens, when, as in some cases, there seems no ap parent cause. If jIoultrykeepers were aware of the intricate nature of a hen's digestive system they would be more careful in feeding. It is quite certain that most of the ails and deaths in adult stock-and young chicks for that matter--are due to faulty feeding. There are three important organs that must be mentioned, viz., the crop, stomach and gizzard respectively, andt the "in between" apertures connecting them up are very small, so much so that a large whole maize has been known to block up the entrance, and if such happens the digestive organs stop, the food in the organ goes sour, and the bird is inwardly poisoned by the gases from the stale foodstufls. The only remedy then is to wash out the crops thoroughly, or if that does not remove the trouble it will be necessary to cut open the crop and re move the obstruction. Either of these...

WORKMAN'S TRAINS Are There Two Classes? [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 20 December 1924

WORKMAN'S TRAINS Are There Two Classes ? "TI was under .the impression that you can travel first-class on a, second class ticket in a workmen's train if the second-class is full," said a defen dant, Harold Emery by name, at the Footscray court on Thursday. l.e was charged with riding in a first-class carriage with a second-class ticket. The P.M. said the' defendant was under an entirely wrong impression, and fined him 20/- with 7/6 costs. Had the magistraite stood on Sun shine station any Saturday, and ob served a thousand workmen boarding a workmen's train. in which there was seating accommodation for only 200 and standing accornnmodation for ano ther 100, in the second class apart ments, he would have concluded that the Railway department was responsible for providing accommoda tion. The name " workman's train 'd is suflicient to show that it is a sepa rate class train for workman. The P.M. therefore, if the facts are as stated, gave a decision that appears to be somewhat open to ...

CRICKET SUNSHINE V. KINGSVILLE [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 20 December 1924

CRICKET SUNSHINE V. KI(NGSVILLE A match between Sunshine and Kingsville on the latter's ground was commenced last Saturday. SunIshilne batted first and made a poor' showing. H. Carrick and J. Stephenson opened. Stophenson waLs bowled by the second ball of the first over, before he had scored. Scott Clarke was dismissed in the next over, 2 for 6. 11. Carrick was bowled for 17. Of the remainder R. Carrick aLnd Wunhym showed out well (compariatively), but the innings closed for 51,' Sunshine's lowest score to date. Kingville's success was miiainly due to tihe fine bowling of L. Cross, who obtained eight wickets for 20 runs. Kingsville started confi dently, but with Sunshine on their mettle found thie passing of even such a low score impossible. Stephen son as usual howled well, and in his first four overs took 1thi ec wickets for threle runs.. A. M'Girath took wickets with each of his first two halls. As a result the score now stood at, 12 with six wickets down. Stone, however, made :I...

VICTORIAN RACING By "Ohbserver." 'l'ralners and the Racing Game. IDo They Rule The Roost? At the moment there is much dis cussion of this question in Victorian racing circles prompted by the report that in South Africa recently legisla tion has been introduced to endea vour to whittle away some of the -,yower and authority which trainers undoubtedly possess. A mild discus sion has been simmering somewhat here ever si.nce a certain case when it was suggested that no one but the trainer. knew anything about the horses, he being vested with full and complete authority to do as he liked when he liked. Of course, we know this is very often the case, but how is it going to be got over? The average gentleman owner knows very little about the turf. and a lot less about the condition of his horses. That is why he pays big money to have them trained and raced by experts. What would be the good of an owner engag ing a trainer if he was not prepared to act on his advice and ahide by his decisio...

MOTOR BUS ACCIDENT Driver Garrett Injured On Tl*uesday.evening the motor bus which plies between Sunshine and Footscray sustained an accident, the third in the brief history of the ser vice. The occurrence took place at the corner of Hampshire road. T'he car itself did not capsize, but the driver was thrown out and seriously jured. While Garrett, who owns the motor bus, was turning into Devon shire road, at the corner of Hampshire road, a motor-cycle coming from a dif ferent direction collided with the car.

SUNSHINE DRAINAGE Comprehensive Scheme Suggested [Newspaper Article] — Sunshine Advocate — 20 December 1924

SUNSHINE DRAINAGE Comprehensive Scheme Suggested One of the most important and pressing requirements in the towen of Sunshine is a scheme of drainage which will free the town from the continual visitation of floods. A. large area of the township, stretching prac tically from the Bal3larat-roamd in the vicinity of Netteford s factory to the 3Black Arch on the south med is affected whenever ia moderate storm of rain occurs, and occasionally lthe flood waters not only affect the properties in the township but cause great in convenience at the crossings in Devon shir'e and H]taimpshire roa(s. In ad dition there is almost a permanent swamp in the town, which being the depot or entrepot of the street drain age is not calculated to add to the salubrity of the town or wholesome natu're of locality adjacent, and in any case is an ideal breeding groulnd for the ubiquitous aund mlore or less ma ligned mosquito.
