Reveals Complexion Secret of the Spanish. LADY TELLS HOW THEY KEEP THEIR YOUTHFUL COMPLEXIONS, EVEN AT SIXTY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 30 March 1914
Reveals Complexion Secret of the Spanish. -o LADY TELLS HOW THEY KEEP THEIR YOUTHFUL COMPLEXIONS, EVEN AT SIXTY. ` As a young girl," writes one of our readers, " I always had a nice clear :and delicately - tinted complexion, but on reaching the age of thirty it changed completely. The chilly winter winds and rain made my skin rough and dry-my face used to burn and smart hor ribly after the slightest exposure to frost or cold. I felt very worried to see the dreadful change that was taking place. About this time I went for a trip abroad, and while travelling in the south of Spain, became intimate with an elderly Spanish lady. Knowing how proud the Spanish girls are of their lovely skin, and hoping she could help me, I told her of my trouble. She advised me to obtain two ounces of rose water, one',dram tincture of benzion, and two 'ounces of ordi nary flowers of oxzion from the chemist, which, she: said, I could mix myself, and after. shaking well, apply it with a soft cloth or sponge....

He then called on Mr J. Sommerville to make the presentation. Mr Sommerville said, it was a pleasing duty to him as well as a sad one. He was sorry Mr and Mrs Fogarty and family were leav ing them as by their kindly actions and qualities they had endeared themselves to all their neighbours. He asked Mr Fogarty...

CROSSLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 30 March 1914
CROSSLEY. &nbsp; (From our Correspondent). Potato digging is being carried on with all possible speed, growers being anxious to save as many as possible from the ravages of the grubs. The pest has done considerable damage this season, and &nbsp; the tubers are so badly affected that very little seed will be obtained from them. There are fair deliveries at present, the price - £3 a ton - inducing a good many growers to sell. It is impossible to tell at present whether more or less than usual will be sown during the coming season. Onion growers are not disposed &nbsp; to sell at the present time. It is hoped that the price will advance when those that were sold for for ward delivery are got rid of. Large quanties are held, but it is not likely that growers will hold as they did last season. The share system was pretty general this season, and the tendency to higher rents is likely to make it more popular. It is said that a 45-acre lot has. been let for onions a...
