Household Hints. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
HoDsehold Hints, ; :?( : . ? -??— ? r- - , ??:?; ? Boots and. shoes 'wear longer if kept some time before they are first worn. ? ' ?? .. . r ??? : Potato-water . is excellent for cleansing mud~stains from nearly any kind of cloth or garment. Rusty flat-irons ' should be first slightly heated, and' then rubbed with a cloth dipped in paraffin and bath-brick. If, in using a gas-stove, the oven becomes' too hot, it can be quickly cooled by placing a dish of cold wa ter inside. Tim articles are best cleansed with soap and whitening, taking care that all grease is previously remov ed from the articles., .-- Instead of keeping parsley in wa ter after 'gathering it, place it in an air-tight tin. It can be stored in this way for months. When cooking onions, set a tin cup of vinegar on the stove, and let it boil; no disagreeable* odour will then be in the room. Taps of a bathroom should be polished every day, as the touch of water dulls the surface of -metal un less cleaned off quickly. To re...
MATTERS FEMININE A SENSIBLE FAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
iATTMS FEMINIZE. A SENSIBLE FAD. . la Holland it is still the fashion for ladies to wash the dainty china and silver after tea or breakfast in the presence of the family and guests. The same has recently been revived as a fad among English la dies, and it is not only appreciated as giving au air of domesticity to the meal, but also for the practical reason that a lady's gentle handling is needed if pretty glass and china are to be preserved for any length I of time. Had our grandmothers en trusted the washing of their tea ser vices to the care of their servants, hfir looms of beautiful old china would be rarer among us than they are now.
MAKING BLOOD BY ELECTRICITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
MAKING BLOOD BY ELEC TRICITY. Sir James A. Grant, physician to the Governor-General of Canada, in the course of an article contributed to a medical journal, says: 'An important fact, and one clearly demonstrated, is that blood can actually be made by electricity, by stimulating through the abdominal walls the ganglia that take part in the process of blood formation. For many years 'If applied electricity frequently with beneficial results. As. the body is largely composed of water, holding in solution salts or potash and soda, it becomes an ex cellent electrolyte.' In no part of the human system are the irregulari ties of life more marked than in the alimentary canal, where the defenc es of the organism permit the in gress of bacterial, toxins. In this tract the. blood becomes interrupted. Under such circumstances a perfect ly stable nervous system is a rarity. Here particularly electrolysis ' be comes an important factor, giving new activity by establishing beyond doubt, an average...
PARENTAL AUTHORITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
PARENTAL AUTHORITY. Mothers too frequently make the sad mistake of inefficient government in the home. They often speak twice — yea, more than twice — without being obeyed, and then expect a teacher to do more than they. All too soon those chil dren learn that 'Mother doesn't mean what she says.' They are' keen obs'ervers. I have known a tired and overburdened mother to speak repeatedly jn her mild way to Harry or Jamsie, and not a quiver of muscle of the little fellows, hard at play, would relax,' nor would they give any indication of .having heard the gentle voice ; but let father come and call, 'Henry,' or 'James,' in his quick, imperative manner, and how quickly will the diminutive men respond to their paterfamilias !
MAGNETISM AFFECTS STRENGTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
MAGNETISM AFFECTS STRENGTH. Mr. W. J. Crawford seems to have proved by experiments at the Technical Institue of Belfast that magnetism affects the strength of iron and steel. He used bars of mild steel and wrought iron, 8in. long by 3'5ths to iin. in diameter, part of them beintr kept at magnetic saturation in a solenoid, and in the testing machine the elongation of the magnetised pieces was decreas ed three to sixteen per cent., while the average breaking load seemed to be increased.
INFANT'S DAY GOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
INFANT'S DAY GOWN. The yoke-pattern has now served for many years, past as the most ap plicable for babies' day and night gowns. There are 'several variations of it— ^such as the rounded yoke, the ipointed one, or the straight one. as shown in this sketch. No easier pattern than this is to be found, the ultimate elaboration of the gown depending entirely on the taste, skill, and means of. the mo ther. A clever needlewoman will convert this plain straight -cut yoke into a lovely design of miniature tucks, or she will embroider it with scrolls of raised ffowers, which she wili extend to the top of the foot hem. The less expert one may have to content herself with a yoke form ed' of piece embroidery hi muslin. In any case the gown should be made with plenty of room under the arms, for the healthy infant gowns quickly and needs clothes that are loose and comfortable. The design does eqxial ly well for night gowns, which, of oourse, will be plainly made, with perhaps a tiny edging of lac...
SEARCHING FOR TREASURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
SEARCHING FOR TREASURE. Chief of the inventions by which a newiy-ibrmed company hope 1.0 recover treasure from the depths of the sea is the hydroscope, which might be described as a unique water telescope. The hydroscope is a. .thing *apart from all others known. Imagine a floating plat n.-rrii, sumetning line me deck 01 a submarine, so large that on it 20 men can stand at a time. From this floating platform descends for 100 feet an immense telescopic steel tube eight feet in diameter, and from which also depend a series of small tubes of a telescopic nature. The: tube may be lengthened or shortened, just as is n telescope. At the end is an enlargement— -a complete optical chamber, which is in itself a kind of camera, provid ed witli a most intricate system of .powerful lenses and reflectors that allow objects within a distance of 2,000 square yards to be distinctly seen in the reflecting mirrors above. Curving out from just above this chamber are a series of mechanical arms. Immens...
THE GOOD-NIGHT KISS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
THE GOOD-NIGHT KISS. Always send your child to bed happy. Whatever cares may trouble your mind, give the dear child a warm- good-night kiss as it goes to its pillow. The memory of this, in the stormy years which -may be in store for the little one, will be like Beth lehem's star to the bewildered shep herds, and welling up in ? the heart will rise the thought^ 'My father, my mother— loved 'me!' Lips parched with fever will become dewy again afc this thrill of useful memo ries. Kiss your little child before it goes to sleep: . *
THE CARE OF THE SKIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
THE CARE OF THE SKIN. To most persons the skin repre sents simply the organ of touch, and because it is customary to keep near ly all of its surface concealed, its relation to the welfare of the body is overlooked. It has, however, most important functions, such as .the casting out of waste matter and the maintenance of an even body temperature, disregard of which may lead to serious , disturbances of health. ? , ? ? , But aside from' its purely physio logical purposes, the skin is an im portant influence for or against personal appearance, and its proper care is therefore /worthy of conside ration from this point of view alone. Cleanliness is the greatest essen tial in the care of the skin. For the cleansing bath, water as hot as cau be borne is .best, and a good soap should' be freely applied witH V moderately stiff : bath-brush. If the water is at all hard it. is well to soften it by the addition of a little ammonia : or borax. A quick sponging of the entire body with cold water ...
ABOUT WALKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
ABOUT WALKING. Not one person in a hundred knows how to walk. Every age of life and every individual has his own gait. The child as he begins to balance himself on two feet sways from one j side to the other like a fat man. The j little girl of six summers, with her j pretty new dress on, walks as straight j and elegantly as ever she will. Her .little feet are thrown forward with an elasticity peculiar to that age. The little girl of thirteen begins to be careless, bends her back forward, and goes diving into the schoolroom as if she were going to swim. At sixteen, she steps along, with short steps, striking her heels hard on the floor with a don't-care-for-nobody sort of walk. At eighteen, she thinks more of her gait, and aims to recall that of her earlier childhood. The boy of eleven, with his new thick boots, plants his foot like a soldier, and never knows that his boots dis turb anybody. Many children are taught at home and at school to walk on their toes. This will do in a sick...
WEDDING SUPERSTITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
WEDDING SUPERSTITIONS. However unlucky or undesirable tears may be on all other occasions, on one's wedding day it is best, to shed a few, according to old tradi tion. They are sure to bring good luck. It is a very excellent thing to we,ar something borrowed upon the wed ding day; it also brings plenty of good luck; though, so far as one's natural idea would go, both the above would be anything but 'lucky.' Never tie your shoe in the carriage upon your wedding day. Traditioa saith not just what dire result will follow, but it is 'unlueky.' When a bride drops her handker chief, upon her wedding day, the bridegroom should resist his chival rous tendency to pick it up. Let the bride do it herself, or someone not so deeply interested. Another point about the foot :*& this. In leaving the church the bride should always put her rigla foot on the outside step first. This signifies that she will be happy, bealthy, and have all sorts of 'luck' except bad luck. Of course, the bride mu...
STORIES OF CONJURING AND CONJURORS. The Tables Turned. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
STORIES OF CONJURING AND CONJURORS. The Tables Turned. On his journey round the world Thurston played many pranks on persons of many nationalities; but on one occasion he found the tables turned. He had been giving a per formance in the Fiji Islands. In one of his tricks he uses two ducks, -ite-*r^i^WH^«c*4&?n^.eB-^?a- duck has a black head and the black duck a white head. This trick seemed to delight the chief of the province, and at its con clusion he asked through an inter preter if Thurston would not repeat the trick. At the conclusion of the ' second performance there' was an animated conversation between the chieftain and the interpreter, and finally the interpreter asked for the duck trick for the third time. At its conclu sion; a long conversation between chief and interpreter followed. The magician could not imagine . what was the matter, and was beginning to wonder whether anything in the performance' had offended the chief. His curiosity \Vas soon satisfied. The i...
The Wheelbarrow in China. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
The Wheelbarrow in China. The wheelbarrow in China is not confined to the menial tasks it is used for /in the rest of the world. In China it serves equally well tfie purpose of carrying a ton and a haif of freight between dock and warehouse or -'store, as that of jauntily conveying a tamily ot tne poorer* class on 'a ' 'Business of plea sure trip. Children dressed their finest make New Year calls by this one-wheeled street car. Wedding guests ride in jit, and often it con veys the dead to their last resting place.
Science Notes & News. THE SHAPE OF THE SUN. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
Science Notes & News. —THE SHAPE OF THE SUN. Prof. Charles Lane Poor, of the Columbia ? University, Observatory, 'is continuing his researches on the figure of the sun, from which he concludes that its exact shape is not known. The generally accepted idea that the sun is a sphere is, he holds, at least open to question. .Practically every series of measures show departures from a, spherical form. Of course, the departures, considering the great size of the so lar, globe, are very minute. There seems to be a fluctuation in the shape of the sun corresponding in period with the sun-spot cycle.
RUDDER AS BRAKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
RUDDER AS BRAKE. A new- ship's rudder, recently tried ;with satisfactory .results on motor-boats, is in two hinged hal ves, opening like a book. When closed, it. is an ordinary rudder ; but when the wings are open, the water from the corkscrew action of the propeller strikes the flat ser vice, which acts so powerfully as a brake that the boat can be stopped with the engines still racing full speed ahead. Wfien the rudder halves are opened a little more, so as to incline forward, the vessel ac Jujillv_begins_movin_g astern with

TIRED MOTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
TIRED MOTHERS. Mothers, take time to rest. Let each day's programme be so arrang ed that'one hour at least may be de voted to quiet rest, in sleep, if pos sible, if not, in relaxation and medi tation. You can then come forth serene and refreshed for the re maining portion of the day, an J the whole family 'will feel - inspired by. the atmosphere surrounding you. A spirit of composure is contagious as well as a spirit of vexation and irri tation, and in the long run great gain will accrue to the* entire family, by ycur rest hour. Just try it for a month and I think you will sur prise yourself. You might have to rise a little earlier in the morning to get the work done, but physically, this will be an advantage. Tired mothers are invariably ner vous and impatient, and if you would not pass on your legacy to posterity, you should take radical measures to overcome it. How much influence for good do you expect to exert over your children if you cannot patiently endure the frets and annoy...
For Young Folks. THE WISHING FAIRY—A BIRTHDAY STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 18 April 1911
For Young Folks. w THE WISHING FAIRY— A BIRTHDAY STORY. The lovely new blue cashmere frock had just arrived. Nineyear old Maisie gazed at it delightedly. ' It was a birthday present from Cou sin Evelyn — just the same age as herself. Of course, it was kind Aunt Margaret who had chosen the frock. 'Mother!' cried Maisie, 'I do believe Aunt Margaret guessed I wanted a new frock for my birth day. Don't you?' 'I dare say she did, darling.' Maisie pondered deeply a few minutes. 'We are poor, aren't we, moth er?' 'Poor compared with Aunt Mar garet and Cousin Evelyn — yes, we are, Maisie. Why do you ask, dear?' 'I was just wondering what I could give Cousin Evelyn. But 1 can't think of anything. She has. heaps and heaps of everything. Be sides, I've only got one penny and two half-pennies.' 'Don't trouble about it, pet. Your Cousin won't expect anything. And she's everything she wants. Now get out your fairy-tale book, while I go and get tea ready.' But the fairy-tale book was not interesti...
