WORK IN PROGRESS. WHAT THE ARCHITECTS ARE DOING. Somg Big Projects. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 4 May 1912
WORK IN PROGRESS. WHAT THE ARCHITECTS ARE DOING. Some Big Projects. It must be a matter of gratification to &nbsp; Mr. Richard Smith, proprietor of the big new business premises in Grenfell street known as Worando Buildings, to find that practically the whole of the place has al- ready been let, although the work in some parts is still not quite finished. The &nbsp; building stands on the site of Robin and Co.'s premises, which were burned down some time ago. It is built of reinforced concrete and lined with brick, the cost being something like £35,000. Mr. Slade was the contractor for work other than the reinforced concrete, while Messrs. Un- behaun & Johnstone put in the half-dozen lifts that are working in the building at present. Messrs. Garlick & Jackman were the architects. &nbsp; A big and elaborately fitted picture theatre, which is to be built in Hindley street, opposite the Theatre Royal, for the Wondergraph Company, has been de- sig...
THE TITANIC CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 4 May 1912
THE TITANIC CONCERT. With commendable spirit the Adelaide Philharmonic Society (Mr. Roy Mellish, &nbsp; conductor) has organised a benefit con- cert in aid of the Southampton relief fund of the recent Titanic disaster, to take place on Saturday, May 11, at the &nbsp; &nbsp; Exhibition Building. The cause is a most worthy one, and will give Adelaideans an opportunity to practically sympathise &nbsp; &nbsp; with all those affected by the tragedy. His Excellency the Governor, Lady Bosanquet, and suite have intimately identified them- selves with the movement by their pat- ronage and presence. Every available artist in the city has come forward to help, and from a musical standpoint the programme will be unique. Among the artists are the Misses Katie Checkett, Katie Joyce, A.M.U.A., Ivy Phillips, Edith Ward, Gwladys Edwards, &nbsp; A.M.U.A., A.R.C.M., Kathleen Holder, Carlien Jurs, Mesdames Brainsby and Wa- &nbsp; ger, Messrs.

CARPET CLEANING AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 4 May 1912
CARPET CLEANING AT HOME. Carpets should be well beaten before they are cleaned, so as to remove all dust, and care should be taken also to remove all pieces from the surface. For removing spots on the carpet, ox-gall or ammonia and water is excellent. The proportion is one tablespoonful of household am- monia to four parts of water; or use one tablespoonful of ox-gall to one quart of water. Apply with a sponge or flannel, not too wet, and rub until nearly dry. For soot cover with salt and sweep up. To remove ink spots, pour on milk, and as it becomes coloured absorb with a blotting or other soft, absorbant paper. As soon as the ink is removed wash with warm water and Castille soap — nothing stronger— to remove the grease of the milk.

FOR THE HOSTESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 4 May 1912
FOR THE HOSTESS. Novel and particularly pleasing is an entertainment in which "Reproductions &nbsp; of Famous Pictures" are given, and there are no royalties to pay. Your characters &nbsp; &nbsp; for the pictures must be most carefully chosen, and the costumes should be as &nbsp; nearly like the original paintings as pos- sible. Most of the pictures mentioned are &nbsp; &nbsp; very well known, and you can easily get copies among the pictures obtainable for public use. Most booksellers have these copies at a very small price. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A large gilt frame five feet by seven feet (made of pine boards and gilded) is used. Inside the frame, across the open- ing, tack black tarletan. This softens &nbsp; the effect of the picture. A large curtain &nbsp; completely covering the frame is drawn &nbsp; aside when the picture is exhibited. While the musical nu...

From a Woman's Point of View. WOMEN AND RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 11 May 1912
From a Woman's Point of View. (By MADGE.) WOMEN AND RACES. Fine weather drew a record crowd to Morphettville on Goodwood and Cop Days, and the lawns and stand -were packed with men— and women. Decidedly the woman racegoer is on the increase in Ade laide; and, roughly, she may be divided into three classes:— The woman who goes 'because every one else does,' . and who regards her frock as the item of the day's proceedings; the woman who goes to make money; and she who goes because she loves horses— for pure joy of the sport. Of the three classes the first is easily the most numerous, and on race days the least popular. The woman who adjusts her veil or straightens her hat as a hurdle is being taken wins scorn from bystanders, and blank or expressive in dignation from the friend whom she en-, deavours to consult regarding the angle of the hat in question. Moreover, Bhe is apt to regard the actual races as some ?vrhat tiresome, if necessarY, items In what would otherwise be an enjoyable...

CLEVER WIVES. Men's Preference for Silly Women. That - men dislike and xrifil net many clever women is the complaint of an in teresting* article by Mrs. Macrosty in the current number of the 'JSrsHshwoman.' Two women have hononred htr with their confidence within the past month. 'One is pretty, the other is beautiful. One possesses private means ? s ; the other earns several hundred pounds a year. . -. Both -would make ideal mothers. * Yet both these women have confided to me that during all the 15 years of their marriageable age, no offer has been made to them. ' '.No man has ever looked at me with love in his eyes,' said one, and she added sadly a second after wards, 'I wish it were otherwise.*' Mrs. Macrosty takes the mere man to task for his folly. .''Domestic problems are not solved by stupidity,' she says, 'nor is callage training any bar to the supervision of servants.

THE MIRROR OF FASHION. New Lines Seen, on Gowns — Coats and Frocks that do not Match Dresses Mounted upon Linings. By 'Irene.' One of the latest plays produced la Paris has been the means of showing the canning of the modern aress designer, and a eood deal of comment has been, ex pressed over the strong colour contrasts used in some of the gowns worn by the actresses, for a complete revolution has been wrought in the modes, and the world of woman must be reconciled to it. It is so refreshing to know a touch of drapery is used in tasteful manner after the scant, plain . skirts of the last few seasons. Then there is the deep hem, which gives a new look to an tmtrimmed skirt, demonstrated by different shades of one colour. But there is no patchwork look. The pannier skirt, which is already an established and successful vogue in Paris, is made the subject of every kind of diversification, with two '»»' and well defined ways of presentation, the merits of which are stirring vp strife amo...
