ELDERFLOWER WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
ELDERFLOWER WATER. To make this safe and beneficial toilet water, either the fresh or dried flowers may be used. If the fresh blossoms are available, pick enough from the steins to half fill a fireproof jar. Fill the jar up with rain water, cover over, and place in a moderate oven, leaving the water to simmer until it is reduced by one half. Strain off, add ten drops of rectified spirits of wine to every half pint of the eldertiower decoction, and bottle for use. Tbe dried blos soms may be used in a similar way, but are not quite so satisfactory.
THE NURSERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
THE NURSERY. The normal age for teething to commence is about the seventh month. 'Styes' are common in weakly children ; good diet and cod-liver oil are the best remedies. Children's skin? often get rough and chafed during windy weather. The best plan is to apply a little cold-cream after washing as soon as the first sign of roughness appears. Rub it well in, and wipe off all superfluous greasiness with a soft rag. Children suffering from indiges tion, causing them great pain in stomach or chest, will derive great benefit from a piece of flannel being thoroughly heated before the fire and pressed on affected part and reheat ed until pain has gone. Rupture of the tympanum — drum of the ear — is often caused by a blow or 'box' on the ear. A mother should regard fits of in digestion in any of her children as something serious; if allowed to go on, they may mean lifelong weak ness or disease.

ENEMIES. Have you got enemies? Go straight on, arid mind them not. If they block, up your path, walk' ar ound them, and do your duty re gardless of their spite. A man who has no enemies is seldom good for anything; he is made of that kind of material which is so easily work ed* that, everyone has a hand in it.

Isabel herself, not more than three times the oth er's age, was acting the part of mother to perfection. Presently along: came a young man, who thought he understood children. 'Good morning!' he said elabor ately, taking off his hat. 'How are you ladies to-day?' Isabel looked at him with dignity and replied, 'Good morning!' and went on attending to the baby. The young man stooped down. 'Ah,' he said, 'and which is which?' '':.-,' 'I'm Isabel,' replied the other girl, 'and that's which.'
THE STORY OF THE WOODEN HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
THE STORY OF THE WOODEN HORSE. Long ago, about 2,000 years before Christ was born, the men:of -? Greece were angry with the men who lived far across the sea in the city of Troy. So the King of Greece called together the bravest of their/warriors and set out in their long ships to punish the Trojans and destroy their city. But the walls of Troy were, strong and the Trojans were brave fighters. And although the Greeks fought many battles, yet at the end of ten years they had not taken the city. : . -Then one of the Greeksr a very cunning man, made a plan by which they could get into the city without any fighting at all. A great wood en horse was built. It was hollow, and so large that a great number - of soldiers could get into the body through a little door in the side- In the darkness the horse was filled with the bravest of the Greek sol diers. Next day the other Greeks drag ged the horse up to the city walls. They pretended that they were tired of fighting and were going to sail f...
THE OWLET'S LESSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 29 November 1910
THE OWLET'S LESSON. 'What can bring people into the ; groves to hear those nightingales .?.'-..sing?' said an owlet to his mother. i .The old owl didn't know, and ? didn't care — she was busy watching a bat. 'I'm sure I have as fine a voice as : any nightingale, and far stronger. ' ' 'Stronger, certainly, my son, ? said the owl, with a blink, for the bat had escaped. - 'I shall go into the grove to ' night, and give them a song,' said v.the owlet. -V. The owl opened her round eyes '?y. .very wide, but said nothing. ? ??'???'.. Accordingly, when night came, -and the hour for the sweet thrilling :'6f the singing birds drew near, he flew heavily along, and placed him self in a conspicuous part of the *grove, that he might be seen and i : heard to a proper advantage. ? , Now the nightingales did not by rany means admire the prospect of ?;his. company ; so those who were ?bent on singing sought another grove, while those who were con tent to be quiet kept snugly at roost. 'Where can the ...
FOR AMATEUR DRESSMAKERS [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
FOR AMATEUR DRESSMAKERS The neck of a fitted corsage should always be cut rather smaller than the collar-band, a few notches be ing made in the neck of the bodice to prevent the collar-band wrinkling when the two are tacked together. The pleats of a skirt at the back, am nf .4-Iia nlonlraf. lift la Uli - OiVUOi OiUC VV.UUW Mwtv) should be basted' into place from the pattern before the first fitting takes place, so that all alterations may be carried out from the seams. The correct set of these pleats makes a great difference to the look of the skirt when finished, and they should always be stitched down for a few inches from the band, and from thence hang in line close to each other to the bottom of the skirt. In sewing on buttons, _ the knot should never be ' left on the under side of the material, where it may chafe the skin, besides producing an unfinished effect. Professional dress makers always place the knot, on the contrary, on the right side of the material, directly under t...

Finally they should be rinsed in clear cold water and dried with a linen glass cloth. In summer, when it is beneficial for...
