HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 16 January 1915
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. -4t-- Don't buy cheap finery-it is ex travagant in the long run. After frying fish, dry it on sheets of paper before serving to remove all grease. Mildew stains on clothes are dif ficult to eradicate. Sometifimes they will yield to rubbing with whisky. Use a clean brick instead of the ordinary iron stand, and you will then retain the heat of the irons much longer. Jelly moulds should be rinsed in hot water, then steeped in cold wa ter for ten minutes before being filled with jelly. Turpentine is an excellent clean ser for many things. It will re move the marks of black lead from a marble mantlepiece, amongst other things. Before putting milk into the saucepan, boil rapidly a few spoon fuls of water (enough to just cover the bottom of the pan), and it will never burn, however fierce the fire. The discolorations caused by striking matches can be removed by rubbing with a slice of freshly cut lemon, and then follow with a damp cloth dipped in whiting. Kitchen chairs sh...

THE BEACH STATION. NAME ALTERED TO WILLTAMSTOWN BEACH. THE Town Council a few weeks ago made representations to the Railway Department that many people, es pecially in the country, were in the habit of addressing parcels to "Beach Williametown."
