PETROLEUM PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
PETROLEUM PRODUCTION. Il view of the probable future extinction of coal and petroleum deposits, MIr Eugene Coste, at the recent meeting of the Ameri can Institute of MIining Engineers, con tended that the production of petroleum is volcanic and is going on at all times. MIr Coste points out that whenever oil-bearing rocks are found there are abundant evidences of volcanic action-not neces sarily craters, but ruptures and fissures of the earth's crust. In the Texas oil fields the manifestaticns of volcanic action take the form of small mounds or hills that have been raised above the general level by great internal pressure. If oil was forced from, say the Spindle Top wells by hydrostatic pressure, as some believe, water should flow from the bores after the oil has ceased to flow, but such is never the case. lIr Coste believes that oil and gas are only to be found along the fissures and lines of structural weakness in the earth's crust; he is plotting a map of the United States and Ca...
NEW TYPE OF AIRSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
NEW TYPE OF AIRSHIP. M1r William Beedle has been designing a new kind of airship at WValham Green, which is a compromise between the balloon type used by M. Santos Dumont and Mr. Spencer, and Jules Verne's ' Clipper of the Clouds,' which was imagined as raising itself solely by means cf electric fans. 'Mr Beedle's ship has a torpedo-shaped balloon capable of raising it to a height of lOft., but beyond that height it will be raised cr depressed by a fan which will be driven by the motor which also works the propeller.
PREFERENTIAL TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
PREFERENTIAL TARIFF. AuvnArur should barrack with both hands and feet for a preferential tariff. . Figures show that the Commonwealth has beeh all but shut out of the flouth 'African frozen meat market while the Argentine and other countries are squeezing us out of the British markets. With the pros pact of bountiful sesson~ and an abundance of store stock the outside empire competition should be restricted by a preference in favour of ourselves. This will not necessarily wean dear food for British millions for in these days of wheat trusts and rings, the consumer does not reap the advantage. The Cape Government eighteen months ago, removed the twopence duty on imported meat and the cold storage companies responded by raising the price of meat by another twopence. They actually benefited by 4d per lb, The South African meat rines now have grpat pattle and sheep pastures In Argentina and lesve iastralia se verely alone. If the rings get a similar mongpy of the English market, Austral...

Wattle Park Picnic. THE great event of the year for Wattle Park is the annual Sunday -chiol Picnic. This was as usual held in the church grounds on Wednesday 19th inst , ani was attended by a very large gathering, notwithstanding the stormy weather condition. As rain showers fell throughout the aftern,)on it was impossible to serve tea outside and so the church was requisitioned. All were in good humour, visitors and entertainers alike, so that the inconvenience of being without tables, as the company crowded together like the proverbial " herrings in a barrel " did not interfere with the hapiinese and success of the event. After tea wsa over a public meeting and concert was held, the Rav. W. Stewart occ pyins the chair. Proceedings were opened by singing the " Old Hundreth '" and prayer, after which an entertaining programme was carried out. A large company of Sunday School child ren with floral arches rendered most acceptably two chorus, " The Children's Jubilee," and " The Childr...

Pointed Impressions. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
Pointed Impressions. How is it that cetain politicians who roared for Freetrads or Protsoti'?, for a quarter of a century are now fisnally comatose 4 Unquestionably Mr Reid is right in declaring that preferential trade cannot get into practcoal Federal politics until after the imperial general elections, wsich look like going very badly against the Balfour Government on isaues other than the tariff turmoil. The Imperial Government of the near fu'ure will no doubt see what may be duone for Inter Empire'trade without doing too moch violence to a fiscal faith of fifty years preference. Just now the Liberals are exclusively occupied in getting back to power. When they get there they may deal with German-American and other keen tariff tactics. Mr flrick backed Ossian heavily for the Caul field Cup and had another Mlelbonrne disap pointment. About twelve montha ago some thing l-ke the following cable appeared in the S'African press.

TATTERSALL AND CHARITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
TATTERSALL AND OHARITY. THE most interesting feature of George Adams' will is the noble provision for present and permanent charity and benevolence. All the balances of his trusts and annuities when fallen i :sara ;left in favour of charities. And a sportsman whose business was disallowed in this state by canting. politicans remembered poor humanity in the dispoali5f his estate. Pious humbugs, who fattened and battened on so ciety remain selfish to the last, and never leave a cent to the poor. The affloted and the aged. Adams was an angel compared with them,

Tlhe Storyteller A MISER'S HEIRESS. C(lAPTER XX.-CONOTNUED. ' Oh, do you mean that I shall be able to read' what you. write in the papers ? That will be interesting ! I shall be so proud of you, and I've never been proud of anybody in my life I Jack, I am glad I'm engaged to you. I hope you don't mind it very.much ?' ' Ifind it very diffiuolt to analyse wy feel ijgs, but I know at times I foill an awful blackguard for having proposed to yoq,' he said glonmily.

HOUSEHOLD RECIPES. SPECIALLY WRITTEN BY MISS ANY MONRO. PRINCIPAL COOKERY SCHOOL, TECHNICAL COLLEGE, SYDNEY. COOKING PUDDINGS (STEAMING.) [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
)OUSEHOLD :RECIPES. S-SPEoArhtLY WITrT'aE BY MISS AMY MONRO. Ooo~nn ouaoor,,, TEamuoAL COLmLEGE YD- .-, Y. I COOKIJG 'pUDDINCS (STEAMINIG.) Puddings may be either steamed, boiled, or baked. The first is a nice light method, and affords many varieties. If a steamer to fit the saucepan is 'not at hand they can be done by standing the mould in a sauce pan with sufficient water to come half way up the mould, but care must be taken to keep up the quantity of water-have boil ing water at hand to add when necessary. Steamcd puddings are always cooked in a greased basin or mould, and should be covered with a piece of greased paper. This is to prevent the condensed steam from dropping on the pudding. If a mould with a lid is used this, of course, is unno cessary. The water must not boil too quickly, especially for a custard pudding, or one that contains many eggs, because then the eggs would curdle and the pudding would not be so light, neither would it turn out of the mould without breaking...
CHAPTER XXI. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
CHAPTER XXI. It. was nine o'clock and Mabel stood out side knocking at Lhdy Gosport's door. ' May I come in ?' she asked, 'or is it too early ?' ' Not a bit ! I am not up yet, but do come in,' and Mabel entered to find Lady Gosport sipping.ber chocolate, while a pile of letters, newspapers and periodionls littered the blue satin bed cover. 'There, sit down in that chair opposite to me. How, how did you and your young man get on last night? Not broken it off or anythiing, I hope ? I broke off engagement to Gosport three times before we were mar ried, and would have done it the fourth time only it was too late, because it was the wedding day, when we had an awful quarrel all about nothing. I forget what it was, but I am awfully glad I married him. He is a real good sort-st least I think sc to-day. My teelings with all my friends differ according to the weather or my temper, or my reading the papers, or something. I wonder whnt it would be like to have a placid, snail-like disposition-...
Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
TOILET $INTS, Ointments, such as cold cream, and oat meal cream, will give great comfort in the hot weather if rubbed over the face. They will prevent the skin from becoming dry and rough and protect it against the injur ious effects of sun.beat. Under a coating of cold cream the skin will not easily burn. A simple aromatic .,vinegar is made, by adding about three penny-worth each of spirits of wine and simple tincture of ben coin to a quart of good vinegar. A spoon ful of this mixture added to a basin of water is refreshing as a facebath. "It is said to preserve the complexion fresh and young looking. Aromatic vinegar and spirits of wine are also recommended to be used with friction to prevent swelling of the feet. Elder leaves placed under the feet are supposed to prevent fatigue when walking; but it is better still to rub the soles of the foot or of the stcokings with ordinary tallow. A little bay.rum added to the water bath restores vitality to the skin; and after. friction with...
TWO PRETTY BLOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
T TWO PRETTY BLOUSES, It is not always the most olaborato blouse that is tho prettiest, simplicity having its victories equally with olaboration. A charming little blouse of simple construe tion that I reoontly oncounteored was of light roseda-greei cropo do chine, gauged to a yoke of fine coru lace and falling in heavy lines to the waist. The sleeves were gauged on the shoulders, and the cuffs were eacoh composed of two bands of lace united. by a band of crope do ohine, with which also tho cuffs.were hommca, and the collar band was finished in a similar way. The blouse alluded to is illustrated herowithb, together with another blouse of tucked cream-coloured soft silk, .with a band of filot lace down the front, and lace to match marking the shoulder-lines and forming the collar and cuffs. When a man pulls off his shoos at the foot of the stairs it is safeto bet that he ex. pects trouble at the top.
AIR THE SLEEPING-ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
AIR THE SLEEPING-ROOM. Immediately upon leaving the sleeping room in the morning the windowe should be raised full height, and the doors thrown open to enable the fresh air -outside to .reach overy corner of the compartment in free circulation. There is marvellous power in the air to sweeten and to purify. Very thoughtful people, who like things abso. lutely fresh and pure, are careful to turn back the bedclothing in such a way_ that the air can touch every part which hks been in contact with the sleeper. Or, better still, the bodelothing is talen from the bed and spread upon chairs near the open window.

Housekeeper. A REFRESHING BATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
0ousekeeper. A REF,RESHING BATH. A WARM salt bath is very refreshing to anyone suffering frcm exhaustion of travel or of a long shipping expedition which is as tiring to mind and body as any thing that 'an be undertatken by a woman. Away from the seashore a very simple sub stitute for Eca-water is a cnp of rock salt dissolved in warm water and added to the bath. When the salt is irritating to the skm, take a warm bath and sponge off with a mixturo of violet and lavender water and alcohol, about half and half, and rub briskly vith a warm friction towel. Such a method prevents the exhaustion and dan ger of cold which follow a warm bath.
MODERN COIFFURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 October 1904
MODE)N COIFFURE. The art of the hairdresser talcos a largo share in bringing about the perfect appear ance of the fashionable woman of to-day. Almost every well-dressed head arrives at its stato of beauty by the aid of either a ' frame ' or a 'transformation,' a bought fringe or a tress from the hairdrosser's. One of the aids most usually employed is the little wire circle covered with hair that is worn at the back of the head, and to which is attached a strand of false hair. The growing hair is drawn through a hole in the frame, and the false strand mingles so naturally with it in the dressing that the artifice defies detection. Frames for raising the hair in front or tossing it for ward, and for puffing it out all round the head, aro practically in general use, and there is no falling off in the use of combs for a similar purpose ; while the encourage ment given to the wonderfully-made trans formations that so cleverly adapt them seolves to all styles of coiffure, is more and more...
