USES OF BORACIC ACID. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 16 October 1915
USES OF BORACIC ACID. Boracic acid, or boric acid, is one of the most useful preparations a household can have. It is prepared from borax. The oint ment of boracic acid consists of one part of the acid made up with six parts of lanolin. Boric acid itself is a remarkably powerful antiseptic, and two parts of the acid will keep one thousand parts of milk sweet for three days. A small pinca in a pint of milk will keep it sweet for a long time, even in very hot weather. Boric acid finally pounded is a good dusting powder for infants. Ap plied to the feet in warm weather after washing by dusting it into the stockingB it corrects disagreeable prespiration and cha fing.

QUIET REFINEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 16 October 1915
QUIET REFINEMENT. There are some people who never need to conform to any established rule of society, to whom an easy and refined manner is second nature, and even though they may be placed in the most awkward of positions yet they never seem disturbed. But most people are obliged to keep abreast of the times both of study and ob servation. To such I would say, if you are a housewife without servants, do not at tempt a greater display upon arrival of guests than your own family are in me habit of receiving, for only humiliation will reward your labors. Sit down and chat with your friends and make them at home, and they will enjoy themselves much better than if you spent the greater part of your time in the kitchen. If you cannot serve a dinner with all its courses, prepare a simple meal which, has cost you but kittle labor and has left you free to entertain comfortably and easily. Quiet refinement shows better breeding than great display. Be yourself and not an imitation of others. ...

WOMAN'S COLUMN. CONDUCTED BY 'MAVIS.' HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Very hot water externally applied will stop dangerous bleeding. Soft soap rubbed into the seams of new boots will often prevent their squeaking. To strengthen a weaic throat gargle daily with salt and water whenever troublesome. Cockroaches dislike turpentine, so sprinkle where they congregate, and they wiH soon disappear. l Sprinkle salt over the coal in liberal quan tities, and it will make it burn more evenly and prevent 'clinkers.'

THE INDISPENSIBLE PRINCESS SLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 16 October 1915
THE INDISPENSIBLE PRINCESS SLIP. One of the most useful patterns that the home dressmaker can have by her is that of the princess slip, to be made of sateen, silk-, ette, or some such fabric, on which she can mount her flounced or tunic dress. Aided by a well-cut underslip, the task is not in the least difficult. The princess slip may be required as an independent support for a flounced net or thin voile one-piece frock, or it may be need; ed as a foundation on which to stitch a deep kilts of tussore or other material that is met by an unlined tunic, slipped on separately. In countless ways the princess slip is of value, and reduces the work of the home dressmaker to a minimum. In fact, every girl and woman who makes her own frocks may be confidently advised to pro vide herself with a plain princess slip after the fashion of this one, which can be copied, of course, in light or dark mat erial, and is such a help in bringing about good effects easily. It is just the thing on which to...
A SIMPLE FROCK. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 16 October 1915
A SIMPLE FROCK. A simple frock suitable for lawn or white embroidered muslin, that any girl moder ately skilled in dressmaking could easily make for herself in the home workroom. The skirt is of two-teir kind, composed of a couple of flounces, of which the top one is the deeper. This is gathered^ to the waist and surmounted by a raglan bodice, the sleeves of which are original, for the lower parts, which suggest cuffs or mittens, are entirely of embroidery, beautifully fitted and edged top and bottom with little frills of lace, which should match the lace of the high collar at the neck. The waist is swathed with a wide sash of soft fancy ribbon, and with the dress is worn a pretty hat with dark silk lining and light crown, trimmed with wheat. Plouncings of white embroidered lawn or muslin are much used in the production of tiered effects, the skirt with three flounces of equal depth finding a pretty top in a blouse-bodice, the fronts of which are gathered to raglan sleeves and form ...

Sofala [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 16 October 1915
Sofala (From our own correspondent.) Allies Day passed away very quietly here. A grand ball was held at night, and proved a very pleasant function. It was well patron ised, and those who attended it apparently enjoyed themselves to the full, dancing vbe ing vigorously kept going until the small hours of the morning. The result from a pecuniary point proved also verv satisfac tory — about £6 being received at the doors. This was followed by a very lively Saturday night's dance as a sort of 'taper off.' The young people of Sofala are very much alive. Within the last week we have experienced a sample of all sorts and conditions of wea ther — bleak, bitter, biting winds, and plenty of it, with sharp white frosts in the morn ings, which have cut up some of the apricots and fruit blossoms, and proved detrimental to the vegetation generally. Sunday, Mon day, and Tuesday were abnormally hot; the sun seemed to pour down in a scalding sum mer heat, and on Tuesday night the wel come rain desce...

: STOCK SUPPLY INCREASING. *- 'The coal traffic is Brisk,' said an Enk bank railway official, 'and stock are going through to Flemington in great numbers.'

A Scandal if True. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 16 October 1915
A Scandal if True. Two returned soldiers, who are recovering from wounds received at the Dardanelles, spent a short holiday here early in the week, and were present at the smoke social in the Trades Hall on Monday night. Just before the gathering dispersed one of them, a ser geant, begged leave to bring under the notice of the politicians present what we consider an outrageous scandal. He ex plained that on returning to Sydney, his friend made application to those in control of the Lord Mayor's Fund for Relief, and an offlcer was sent to the soldier's home and make a report. This report must have been what one would have expected in the cir cumstances, for the wounded man was after wards informed that as he had certain ar ticles of good furniture in the house, his could not be treated as a deserving case, and, until it could be shown that he was really in want, no help would be given. If this statement is correct, and we have no. reason to doubt it, the action of the of ficials is a...
