IS POWDER NECESSARY? [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 24 July 1914
IS, POWDER NEPESSAHY 7 I say. emphatically, No ! There is a simple lotion which can be easily and cheaply mado at home, nnd it is at the same time both efTcctive and beneficial to the complexion. C'leminite is a splendid substitute for face powder, which is at tho bot tom of my complexion troubles. Get about an ounce from the chem* ist's and dissolve in four table* spoonfuls of water. The result is a fine clear liquid, which instantly gives tho face, neck, or arms that peach-like bloom of perfect health.' There is nothing to equal it for greasy 6kins, and the rosult lasts nil day long under the most trying conditions. Try it for the next dance.

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 24 July 1914
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Vegetable and fruit stains on the fingers can be removed by dipping the fingers in very strong tea for a few minutes and then washing them in clear, warm water. To make meat cooked in a gas oven juicy, placo a jam jur half filled with cold, water at the bot tom of the oven. The steam rising from the water makes the air in the oven moist' and prevents the meat from getting hard. &lt; Before frying the tirookfast bacon, cut off tho rind :and dip each rasher in flour; thon fry or grill quickly. This prevents the fat from running and gives the bacon a bet ter flavour. The problem of fust stains has been solved by holding the dam aged fabric in boiling uhubarb water. When washing and rinsing colour ed materials add a teaspoonful of Epsom salts to each gallon of water, and even tho most delicate shades will neither fado nor run.

THE KILLING OF SUPERFLUOUS HAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 24 July 1914
THE KILLING OF SUPERFLUOUS HAIU. It is easy to remove '-superfluous hair temporarily, but to romovo it permanently is quite another mat 1 tor. Not many women know that for this purpose such a simple sub stauco ns powdered phominol may j bo used, applied dircctly to the hair. Tho recommended treatment is dc^ signed not merely to instantly re move the hair, but ulso to even tually kill tho roots entirely. Al most any chemist could supply an ounce of phominol, which quantity should be sufficient. « .

Ladies' Column. SELECTIONS FROMTHE WORLD'S SMARTEST BEAUTY AUTIOLES SIMPLE RECIPB3 MOST EF FECTIVE, HOW TO DISCARD AN UNSIGHT LY COMPLEXION. How many women exclaim an thoy behold their ugly complexion in tho mirror, "If I could only tear off this old akin t" and, do you know, it ia now possible to do that very thing ? Not to actually remove tho entire skin all of a sudden ; that would be too heroic a method, and painful, too, I imagine. Tho ) worn-oufc cuticle comes off in such tiny particles, and so gradually requiring about ton days to com plete the transformation-it doesn't hurt a bit. Pay by d«3f tho beauti ful complexion underneath comes forth. Marvellous ! No matter how muddy, rough, blotchy, or aged your complexion, you can sure ly discard it by this simple pro cess. .lust got some ordinary mercolised wax at your .chomiat's, apply nightly like cold cream, washing it oft in tho mornings.
Shaving Made Easy. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 24 July 1914
Shaving Made Easy. t No genius' has yet arisen and in vented a machine to undress you and tuck you up in bed, but wo are getting on ! The unhappy man who daily strug gles with a hard beurd in the chilly hour before breakfast may take cheer from the thought that an electric razor lias been invented by some benefactor. This machine is a safety razor, connected to a motor by means of a flexible * shaft. The blades are ac tuated in such a way as to cut Utes beard by impact, or blows. This means that the razor docs not need to lie so sharp as in hand-shaving. Another advantage is that soup is f not necessary, merely wetting the skin being quite sutlicient. A fur ther boon is that it is very much quicker. The after-effects of this method aro said to resemble those following a mild face massage. A plug is pro vided for,attaching the razor to any ordinary lamp-socket. It sometimes takes a year for the bite of a rat to heal up. 1938.
IN BORROWED PLUMES. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 24 July 1914
IN DOR HO WED PLUMES. The Amir of Afghanistan, smitten wi^i Westernizing notions, insists upon the personages of his Court appearing in Kuropean clothes. There are many amusing features about this craze for F.uropean dress. Use is made of cast-off uniforms that may be seen in Kabul is as amazing tis it is amusing. The war like Afghan mny be seen strutting about even in the stations on 1he Indian border as proud as a pea cock in a uniform which bears on iC the name of a well-known Lon don music-hall, while there are others in the uniforms of English and Continental railway-guards. Frequently it is only a coat that is worn, and a pair of brown bare legs complete the outGt. "You ask my hand in marriage. Aren't you rather ambitious ?" "Yes, but I always did strivo for big things/' From that moment his case was hopeless.

Style With the Gloves. I POINTS AN1) TRICKS OF KINO CHAMPIONS COMPARED BY OUR EXPERT. Style in boxing is tho finishing touch given by a particular man to j a. general principle in his own way. To give an instance, tho principle of tho straight lead-ofl At the head is tho same tho world over. Hut no two very good boxors do it in quite the snmo way. . To take this simple blow-tho straight loft nt the head-there Is very little room for much variety. Vet champions have made this best of all blows effective in quite dif ferent ways. Jim Driscoll, to tako a presont day example, had the quickest left I have ever seen.* Ho docs not just pop it into his opponent's face onco and back aw'ay, but as a rule, | with lightning swiftness, he hits again and again-sometimes four timos in succession. How different is the Frenchman, Georges Carpentier ! With him thero is jiiSt as much grace of movement, the snmo eagerness to follow up an advntitago, but tho style is -totally different.

In Old Japan. THE CHARM OF KYOTO. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 24 July 1914
In Old Japan. ' - . - ? , - . 1 - THE. CHARM OK; KYOTO.; No city in Japan has mora chariri than Kyoto, none is per haps so . thoroughly, worth whilo from the point of view of the tra veller. The Japanese have a/say ing that you must never use the word magnificent till you have seen Nikko. Splendour indeed seems to mock at the hard reality or death on the terraccd hillside planted with giant cryptomenas where the Shoguns sleep in such pomp. Dut Nikko, despite its per fect natural surroundings, is withal a, tomb,. Kyoto old in story, a place of living men. This ancient capital of the Mikados has, despite modern innovations, maintained that essentially Japa nese character which is half obli terated in Tokio. True, the nar row streets are a network over-, head of telephone and telegraph wires and electric cables. Poles almost bending under the weight of the cables they carry- arc curious and unattractive objects which have to be accepted in every little Ja panese town and village to-day...

Yawning as an Exercise. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 24 July 1914
Yawning as an Exercise. .Yawning is said to have an ex ceedingly healthful function besides having a salutary efTcct in com plaints of the pharynx and tho eustachian tubes. According to in I vostigations yawning is the most natural form of respiratory exer cise, bringing into action all the form of rospitnt'ory muscles of tho neck and chest. H is recommended that every per son should have a good yawn with the stretching of the limbs morning and evening for the purpose of ven tilating tho lungs and tonlfying tho respiratory muscles. An eminent authority asserts that this form of gymnastics has a re markable effect in relieving throat and ear troubles, and says that pa tents suffering from disorders of the throat havo derived great boneJlt from it. He says he makes his pa tients yawn, by suggestion or imi tation, or by a series of deep breaths with the lips partly closod. Tho yawning is repeated six or seven times, and should be followed by swallowing, lly this process tho air and muc...
Bird Hospital. [Newspaper Article] — Lancefield Mercury and West Bourke Agricultural Record — 24 July 1914
Bird Hospital. There is in Now York the tiniest hospital in the world. - All sorts of feathored patients lie 'in the wicker baskets, filled with soft white cot ton and'supported on tatl wicker stands, that form the beds. The owner and director of the hospital, a lady, .knows how to take care of birds, and she nets as surgeon, nurse, and/druggist all in one. There is an operating-rooom, with all kinds of small sterilised instru ments, fairy-like casts and splints, a sun room where the birds may flutter back and forth in a bower of green, and a tiny delicatessen store stocked with fat wriggly worms in small glass bottles, hun dreds of brilliantly-coloured dragon flies, and Just the right kind of seed for each patient's diet. Every one of the birds loves "Doc tor" Pope-the lady's naino ia Vir ginia Fojie-and when she passes on her morning rounds rows of little feathered heads bob up over the sides of the baskets, and dozens of bird voices-«omc of them very faint and weak, others loud a...
