HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 30 January 1929
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. To remove stains caused by ma chine oil, use wet salt. A pinch of salt added to each pint of milk helps to beep it fresh during the hoi weather. Newspapers soaked in a strong so lution of soda and boiling water and s-jueezed to a pulp make a good sub stitute for cement^ and can be used to stop mouse, cricket, and cock roach holes. The odour of fish can be removed f. om knives and torks by covering them with tea leaves for a short time. Copal varnish may be applied to oilcloths and kept in good condition by polishing with an ordinary fur niture polish. Before cleaning brass rub it with a cut lemon. Polish in the ordinary way with soft cloths. If necessary apply the usual cleaning agent after this preliminary treatment. Mattresses which are not being used should be inspected from time to time, for they encourage moths. Powdered camphor sprinkled over the mattress, and under the covering ' dust-sheet, will help to keep the pcsL} away. Sea water often causes ugly stains...

HOW HAILSTONES FORM. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 30 January 1929
HOW HAILSTONES FORM. ? ? ? It is during summer-time that hail stones occur most frequently. One might expect that these balls of ice would fall from the sky on the cold days of winter, but it is the heat of summer that gives rise to them, for they can be formed only in thundery weather. When there is1 thunder about there are always very strong upward draughts of air. As raindrops begin to fall they are caught by these cur rents and carried to great heights, where they freeze solid. If they now fall to earth they arrive in the form of the small hailstones that are usually seen. Sometimes, however, after falling through the clouds and receiving a coating of moisture, they are carried up aea-'n by other currents. The mcisture freezes upon them, increas ing their size. The process may go on for some time, in which case the hailstone re ceives coating after coating of ice until it becomes as large as a mar ble or even an egg. Then it falls with millions of others, destroying r.rcrs, Icir...
MONSTERS OF THE DEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 30 January 1929
MONSTERS OF THE DEEP. ? «, .. What is the biggest creature living in the world to-day ? Most people would say the elephant but he is a mere pigmy in compari Eon with a full-grown whale, which would weigh down him and about fifty of his brothers and sisters if* they could be put into the pans of a gigantic pair of scales ! | A good-sized whale will run to ' abort 75ft. in length and weigh 100 j tons. Think what this vast bulk means. A tray horse is a huge animal, yet the .whale is a hundred times as h a~y. A single whale is about as v.cghty es tix hundred men. An ox-tongue weighs four or five ro 'nds ; a ton of oil has been ob iaincd from the tongue of one whale. n srite of bis huge size the whale fee's upon the softest and smallest tbings that live in the sea. One spe cies li /cs almost entirely upon jelly 1 sh ; another whale feeds chiefly on marie creatures so tiny that mil li ns are required to provide him with ore mouthful.

GERALDTON WEEK JUVENILES TAKE CONTROL ! FUN AND FROLIC At noon to-day die children took charge of the town.

SOUTH POLE DIAMONDS. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 30 January 1929
SOUTH POLE DIAMONDS. There is a wonderful diamond mine in the Antarctic regions. This statement was made by mem bers of the Shackelton-Rowett Bxpe dilion. On a small island near South Georgia, on the- fringe of the great icefields which guard the South Pole, soil was discovered which the Quest's mineralogist declared to be the type t'::at carries diamonds.

Ihis is only one of the many dis coveries made by members of the ex pedition. Gigantic forests were dis covered under the sea, and vast new fshing grounds were located. The Antarc'ic waters are swarming with ediMe fish, and present a new outlet for the fish'ng industry.

THE PEARLING SEASON [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 30 January 1929
THE PEARLING SEASON At the end of December most of the pearling fleets of the North-West had been laid up, and it was then possible to estimate the year's catch.
