A PRINTING TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
A PRINTING TROUBLE. Recently, while making some prints on plates from even-toned — graduated — strip negatives we met with trouble that we had certainly not anticipated, though doubtless it exists in all cases when prints are made in the same manner, says the 'Journal of Photography.' The trouble was that, though the tints of the negative were perfectly uni form, we could not obtain similar ly uniform positives until we adop ted certain precautions. The prints were made on quarter plates by con tact printing at a distance of about eight feet from burning magnesium ribbon, which conditions would or dinarily be expected to give quite even illumination. They did not do so in our case, for various strange markings appeared that for long we could not account for. It was only in finding a mark that agreed on several positives, yet corresponded with nothing on the negative, that we suspected reflec tions to be the cause On shifting the frame to a new position, new markings appeared, thus f...

The Camera. A BATH FOR BLACK TONES ON P.O. P. Rich black tones are obtainable on P.O. P. by the use of a borax, uranium, and gold bath.

When cold, add uranium nitrate, four grains; gold chloride — neutralised with chalk — three grains Test the bath with blue litmus paper, and neutralise it with sodium carbonate if it shows the least trace of acidity
MARVELS OF "AEROGRAPHY." [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
MARVELS OF 'AERO- GRAPHY.' The 'air brush' which applies pigment in the form of spray, has recently taken on many and varied forms and uses in France, where it is used to distribute all kinds of col burs, from the most fluid, such as aniline dyes dissolved in alcohol, up to the thickest oil paints. The ad vantage of the 'brush' in decora tion is that the size and intensity of lines or shadows may be varied at will by changing the distance from the sprayer to the surface to be dec orated and altering the air pressure that generates the spray. 'Aero- graphy' is applied even to porce lain, wood, leather, and other sub stances. When the process is ap plied to cloth the colour must be fixed by heating in an oven with an appropriate vapour. The length of the stay in the oven, the tempera ture and pressure of the vapour are all different for each colour and for each kind of fabric.

GENERAL BOOTH'S NOTABLE OFFER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
CENERAL BOOTH'S NOTABLE OFFER. General Booth made a notable offer to the State in the course of a speech. He said that if the British Government would lend him the price of a single Dreadnought at 2J per cent, he would fix up on small holdings on the land two thousand families, representing' ten thousand souls, and repay ihe loan in 44 years. The men he would settle would be chosen from among1 the unemployed, with their wives and children. A CRUEL TOY. A singular toy, invented for the de lectation of Tippoo Saliib, and found in his palace at the taking of Seringa patam, is in ihe form of an automaton tiger, life-size, represented in the act of devouring1 a British soldier, who lies prostrate under its claws. Inside this automaton is a rude organ, which, when turned by a handle, emits sounds in imitation of the growls of a tiger and the moans of the dying victim. PENALTIE8 FOR KISSINC. Among old laws against kissing those of Iceland appear to have been the most severe. Banishment was...
A JAPANESE LAUNCHING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
A JAPANE8E LAUNCHING. We have not in .this country a mon opoly of all thequaint and pretty cus toms which obtain in regard to various functions. At the launch of an English vessel a bottle of wine is broken over the bows as a kind of baptismal cer tificate. In Japan, just as the vessel glides down the slips, a string is pull ed, and a flock of pigeons which have been confined in a cot on the forecastle are released. The uprising in a white cloud of the birds in an impressive sight. The exact meaning of the cere mony is lost in antiquity, as no vessel is ever launched in Japan without its being enacted.

GETTING OUR RIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
GETTING OUR RIGHTS. Most people fail to get from others all 'the consideration' they might have. v They do not realise that they would have it if only they would stop demanding it. The man who gets least consideration from everyone around him is the man who demands most. And the man for whom -everyone loves to' show regard is he who never asks it; or eveiv seems to expect it. If we find ourselves jealously noticing ~ that ' a certain person among pur acquaint ances always seems to be made more of, and deferred to n.ore read ily, arid welcomed, mpre eagerly, than we are,; let' us \asjk ourselves honestly if the rgason is not this : that he does more for others, and ^asks less for himself, than .'.' we.

CARE OF SHOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
CARE OF SHOES. Boot and shoe trees are all very well if they can be afforded, but a set of them to accommodate the foot-gear of tbe average well-dressed woman represents quite a consider able expenditure. Tissue paper, crushed and uacked in the shoe an swers every purpose of keeping fit in shape, and costs almost nothing. Patent leather shoes need special care to preserve them in good con dition When they are fresh and new they may be wiped over alter every wearing with a soft linen cloth, and set in a closet that is not too cold nor too warm. Extremes of temperature injure tbe leather As the shoes begin to show signs of wear they should be washed with a sponge dipped in lukewarm water, and after being carefully dried, be lightly brushed over with a patent leather varnish sold for the purpose and applied with a camel's hair brush.
WHY THE CHILD DOES NOT GO TO SLEEP [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
WHY THE CHILD DOES NOT GO TO .SLEEP.. In hundreds of homes little chil dren of almost any age from two years upwards frequently go to bed and are unable to go to sleep. They are soon heard calling for mamma or papa. They are frequently found to be sobbing and crying having perhaps fallen asleep and been awakened by bad dreams. Sometimes being unable to sleep they are lonely or homesick for pa pa's or mama's strong arms Most cases of this sort could be avoided by a little forethought on the part of the parent. In the first place romping and hilarioniB games immediately before retiring so arouse the nerve centres that the child ca'nuot get to sleep after them. The romping after supper, with a period of quiet talk or «.' cud- dling' afterward, is a more proper course. Another thing which promotes sleep on the part of the child is regularity of retiring. A child who goes to bed at half-past six on one night and half-past nine on another will go to sleep with dfn culty. There should be a...
HOW TO DRESS ECONOMICALLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
HOW TO DRESS ECONOMI CALLY. i ? A ? Girls who have only a limited amount to spend on clothes should, not make the. fatal mistake of buy ing light and delicate garments. Dark dresses are the most economi cal wear, and the most sensible thing of all is a good coat and skirt which can be worn with blouses. With a dark skirt of plain pattern and hard-wearing material, and the ad dition of , several different blouses a pleasant change may be effected two or three times a week. With black or very dark blue^any colour may be worn. Home-made skirts and blouses last infinitely longer than those bought ready made in the shops, and with a good pattern even the least intelligent . needlewo man can overcome the difficulty of putting such garments together. Never purchase cheap footgear. One really good pair, of boots or shoes wilt outlast half a dozeD of the cheap variety. If the boots get wet, fill them with dry bran and hang up in a place where a continued current of air- will pass over them. ...
WHAT ELECTRONS ARE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
WHAT ELECTRONS ARE. The electrical atom is simply a sphere of positive electricity which holds in place, by reason of its at tractive power, anywhere from 1,000 electrons in .the hydrogen atom to 240,000 in the uranium atom. These electrons are general ly supposed to be arranged in rings, and since they have to account for the generation of light in all its phases, they must be supposed to revolve about the centre of the posi tive sphere at the rate of several billions of revolutions per second.

If you keep a maid neither let her think she can run you or make pretence of run ning her when desperately ignorant of household arts. Keep dark on your ignorance, but do not be above learning. Take for your housekeep ing motto, 'Economy, patience, and progress,' and you will soon 'make good in your field.
THE "TOOTH SRAIGHTENER." [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
THE 'TOOTH SRAIGHTENER.' 'Orthodentist' is the .technical name of dentistry. In plain English ''orthodentist' means 'tooth- straightener. ' According to last accounts, there are about sixty of them now in America, as compared with 50,000 ordinary dentists. To the orthodentist's mind, a man who extracts a tooth in regulating fool ishly clings to old tradition. He holds that tfie. properly-shaped jaw can hold all the teeth that grow.

There are two rules necessary to remember when massaging the face. First, rub very gently; and second ly, let the fingers move always in an upward and outward direction. DAILY BATHS. Daily baths in tepid water, fol lowed by a brisk rub down with a coarse towel wrung out of cold wa ter, improve the circulation; and are beneficial to the complexion. CARE OF THE SKIN. ; ? A. ? Many girls suffer from what is crudely called a 'greasy' skin, and foolishly endeavor to remedy the annoyance by applying powders and cosmetics. These, as a matter of fact, only tend to increase 'the greasi ness, since they stop up the pores and prevent a natural condition ' of things. A greasy skin may be due to indigestion, debility, or any other physical ill which causes relaxation of the glands. A good tonic often works marvels on the s...
