HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 13 February 1915
HOUSEHOI1D ?INTS. -4--- A white mackintosh should- be washed with yellow soap . and tepid. water. Should there be any obstin-. ate stains, rub them with a rag dip ped in paraffin. Towels with fringes should, be oversewn before being sent to the laundry. Unless this is done the towel gets more and more. frayed, and is quickly shabby. To color kitchen walls dissolve some permanganate of potash in water, and add suffident of this so lution to the whitewash to make it the color yor require. Gas stoves would not be such a source of complaint were they kept clean. They require constant wash ing with hot water and soda, and then polishing with blacklead. To cleanse a frying-pan in which fish or onions have been cooked, fill it with water and bring it to the boil, then drop in a red-hot cinder. Afterwards rinse in the usual way. A good disinfecting perfume is this: Mix a quarter of an ounce each of gum-berigamin, storax, and galban with oil of myrrh. Set a small quantity to smoulder on a ho...

PRINCIPLES OF SEABATHING. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 13 February 1915
PRINCIPLES OF SEA BATHING. Sea-bathing, when properly and carefully indulgdcl in, is a most he.tth-gving and enjo?:i'le diver sion. But a few hroad principles should be remembered. :'ever bathe within two hours cf a ,.oral, never when over-tired an.i erh::r n:,ted, and never when over-heoae 1. At the same time, the hbdv shout I be warm, and not crl, when yonu plunge in. Do not remain in :t h water tong enough to becm:e t ir-i or chilly. and when yon cm:::e et:r dr.s quick tv. It. should also be rem:cmbnred that bathing does not agree with .ervbody. Those who feel faint or gtddy in the water, or whose hearts begin to beat over-nmuch, should con suit a doctor who is thorouhll c ac quainted with their constituti:ns, before they enter the water again. Medical papers say that many of the bathing fatalities whichi have been generally attributed to "cra:mn'' are really d(ue to failure of the lieart'e acti.,n, inducc- by the plunge into co!ld water, and agra v.:ed by, sw inn; ing.

The Origin of the Census. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 13 February 1915
The.Origin of the Census. The earliest .record of the census is that of Moses in the first chapter of Numbers. This census was mere ly a counting of the heads of. the fighting men. The women and chil dren and cripples and the old men were not included, "neither were the Levites numbered among them." Those who did stand up to be num bered totalled 603,550. There is a record of a census in China as far back as the year 2042 B.C., and of one in Japan in the last century before Christ. Under the constitution of Solon the citi zens of Athens were divided and registered in four classes, according to the amount of their taxable pro perty or income. The Roman census was burdeded with more statistics than any of theses however. It had its origin under Servius Tullius, sixth King of Rome, and was an af fair of much solemnity. Every citi zen had to appear upon the Campus Martius and declare upon oath his name and dwelling and the value of his property, under the penalty of having his goods con...

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. ADDRESS BY REV. T. F. BRAZIL. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 13 February 1915
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. ADDRESS BY REV. T. F. BRAZIL. TEE Rev. Father Brazil, parish priest of St. Mary's Church, on Sunday evening commenced a series of dis. courses on the Ten Commandments. He stated that in all the churches of the archdiocese addresses would be given on the same subject, by direction of the Archbishop. Father Brazil dealt in an interestine way with the natural law imprinted on the heart of man. He said it was the only law given to our first parent. After their fall, man was still without a positive law and gradually fell away to such an extent thatit was said God repented creating man, that is, He was disappointed with the result. The deluge was the consequence, and only the occupants.of the Ark were saved from destruction, Later on, the Almighty set apart a chosen people, the Jews, and fed them with manna in the desert and delivered them from Egyptian bondage, It was not until the time of Moses that a positive law was delivered to man. The place. Mount Sinai, was ...

CORRESPONDENCE. &nbsp; WHAT AUSTRALIa CAN DO. To the Editor of the "Advertiser." SIR.--Sometime ago I had the mis- fortune to break a part of the winding gear on my traction engine, so went to the importing firm in Melbourne and was told they had none in stock, but would get one out from England for one, which would take some time. I enquired if I could get it mended. they said no but you could get a cast steel one made which would cost about £10 and this would take time to do. One day one of the Melbourne Steam- ship Company's employees came along and saw it and told me he could re- pair it. I too it the firms works at Williamstown and the job is done and returned, and I must say it is a credit to the firm and also to the employees. It is done so well that it is impossible to see where it is mended and the cost is half of that getting a new one, and I have had no loss of time. Yours, &nbsp; &nbsp; W. J.DARK, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &...
