THE KITCHEN FLOOR. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 October 1915

TJIK. KITCHEN FLOOR. For the soft -wood floor, there is ho finish so satisfactory as two coats of good floor paint with a coat of varnish over it that will not mark when stepped upon.. This will last for years, with right- care, and can be applied by the housewife herself if it is not conveni ent to find anyone else to do the work. When a soft wood, or an old floor is to be finished, first fill all the cracks with a crack-filler, or putty, after a few drops of disinfectant or kerosene is put, into them to insure their freedom from insects. When the cracks arc dry and hard, paint ,tho floor, being careful to cover the wood, aud rub the paint well into the grain. Wheu this coat is drv repeat with another that will go on much more easily than the first, as the grain, of the wood will be already filled. Allow the paint to stand for two weeks, then varnish.

A Mother's Duty. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 October 1915

It Las often been said thai a mother's work is never done. It is equally true that a mother's anxiety about tho welfare of her children is never relaxed. This is largely owing to conditions which are quite beyond her control. Her back need only be J turned for a. moment when something happers. Her child has fallen down and revived fi cut or bruise or some oUier injury, or may even have Leeu burnt or scalded. Perhaps it has eaten unripe fruit, or has got wet and become feverish, or it may be suffer ing great pain from toothache, ear ache or chilblains, whilst the dootor may be miles away or engaged upon some more serious case. Alono with out suitable remedy is a dreadful pre dicament for the poor mother, and yet to-day there need bo no cause fo* alarm whatever owing to the advent 'rd the wonderful OZONflA FIRST-AID OUTFITS, which not only contain a snpply of .the Greatest External and Internal Remedy. ''Ozonia," but also a pack age of lint, 12 yards of bandaging, a roll of adhesive p...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 October 1915

OF RURAL INTERES'r "Rusticua.") The wool market continues satisfac tory, though recently sales in ^Melbourne showed a slight fall in values. This is not surprising, in view of the conges tion in England, and the fact that the Yorkshire representatives are not keen buyers at present. It would seem that the .situation in England was largely due to want of foresight, and houses seem to have made little preparation for dealing with the English clip. How ever, matters will adjust themselves very soon, and as there must be a big demand for the coming winter iu the northern hemisphere, the market will soon return to normal conditions. Jap anese and American representatives arc I buying keenly, and it, is expected that j moderate supplies of good "wools each week will meet with ready sale. While j good sorts are on tho market, inferior kinds may bo neglected. A return issued by the Queensland Government Statistician on tho livo stock in Queonsland for the year 1914 shows a much better figur...

RAMBLERS' NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 October 1915

RAMBLERS' NOTES: The Ramblers made a good start against North Wonthaggi ip the open ing match. The day was beautifully fine for cricket and the ground was in good order. The Ramblers have a very weak bowling side. Maynard and Frank Smith have decided not to play this season, while C.' Tibball3 li;is on- j listed with the Australian Light i'.or^e, ! and is at present at BroadmeWow.-;. I E. Archer and C. Parrish have decide 1 i to Rive up the game. j The Ramblers tried some of ti?e juniors on Saturday, and thr; most pro- ; mising of them was Mo:\-i j'i!i o xrie, ' who batted very nicely for 11. The opening partnership between Dempsey and Rutherford accounted for 110 runs before a separation was effec ted-a very creditable performance, aad perhaps the very best first wicket parthership known in local cricket circles. It is pleasing to see two young and enthusiastic players striking form so early, and both are to be congratulated upon their meritorious efforts. W. Dempsey's score of 7t&...

NORTH WONTHAGGI NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 October 1915

NORTH WONTHAGGI NOTES. | Much enthusiasm is in evidence amongst the willow-wielders of this lively little suburb, Their opening match on Saturday was against the sturdy Ramblers, and the game may reach an interesting stage before its completion. Fowler trundled splendidly for the North, and his creditable performance' of 6 for 30 out of a total of 168 is in deed worthy of special mention. Davies also did good work with the leather, and bagged 3 wickets for 22 runs. In the batting department the in nings opened with disaster, the first wicket falling before a run was scored. By careful and faultless cricket, how ever, the rot was stopped by J ennings and himbeck, who played out time, the partnership proving a valuable one to their side.

FOR WOMEN (By "Ambrosine.") THE LATEST FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 October 1915

FOR WOMEN "Ambrosino.") (By "Ambrosine.'.) THE LATEST FASHIONS There arc several trades which will | profit very i{iueh by the coming chango I in fashions. The return of the petti- I eont will revive an industry which had j almost sunk into nothingness. Then the ! laeo required for these wide, frilly gar- j menU will assist the laco manufacture, I which can hardly havo been so flourish- 1 iag as in former years. This form of trimming is not used in any consider able quantity on the most modem lin gerie; but will ovidently come into its own again on the petticoat. Another trade to profit by tho now sea son's peculiarities will be the boot maker. The short skirts l'or wear later in the year will call for ostroinely neat feet. Theso skirts leave.tho ankle quite exposed, and shoes will be out of the question, and eutirely superseded by boots. Fashion has chosen the Russian boot-that curious seamless pattorn which must be extremely hard to get iiito, as it laces up on the outer side of t...

CLEANING SILK. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 October 1915

GLEAKING SILK. The French method of cleaning black siik is very simplo, and the results very satisfactory. The siJk is thoroughly brushed and wiped, with a cloth, then laid ou a board- or "table, and well sponged "on the side iutended to show. It is allowed to become partly dry, and then ironed on the wrong side. The coffce romoves the shiny look, and does not leave the papery stiffness produced by other liquids. The silk appears thickened by this process. Try it upon a neck tic, and you will be surprised at the results.

THE BEET SUGAR INDUSTRY. (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS.) [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 October 1915

THE BEET SUGAR INDUSTRY. THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPKESS.) Sir,-No doubt many of your renders have noticed that the State Government has secured the temporary services of Mr Easterby, a sugar expert from Queensland, for the purpose of advis ing it as to the conduct of operations in connection with the Mafi'ra beet sugar industry. Should not efforts bo pi|t forward to induce this gentleman to visit the Powlett district during his stay in Victoria? I am sure the State Government will grant such a reason able request if it were made by some of our representative farmers and graziers. This is a matter that can be taken up by the Powlett River District Pastoral, Agricultural and Horticultural Society. No stone should be left unturned to push on with the agitation for the establishment of the beet sugar induslry in our district. Archie's Creek. Oct, 12, 1915. Yourd etc., OBSERVER,

FIVE RULES FOR FORTUNE [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 October 1915

FIVE RULES FOR FORTUNE 1. Cultivate and perfect your ideas. Experiment The world is eager for something new, which, however simple it may be, Trill savo labor or expense, or do things better. Let it be more convenient, or promote pleasure-re duce waste. People who handle things in every day use are the natural inventors of better things, and the natural capital ists of to-morrow. Read the splendid advice that Edison gives. Learn the procedure as to patenting in the chief countries-then secure your own legal monopoly for your rights by becoming a patentee. 2. If that workman or foreman, or your ingenious friend has produced a clever invention, put him on the track of famous and wealthy inventors. Mr F. Townsend, an editor, says of the "Inventors Guide."~-I am recom mending it strongly to friends. Best of the kind I have ever seen. It should do a lot of good.

OHAPTiflll XIX. DUN IS COMPELLED TO SPEAK. The mist on the high moors., iiko all such mists, hovered above the ground like a grey winding sheet, leaving a foot or two of clear air, by stooping or kneeling at ?intervals, to sec his way for a few yards, and to ascertain that he had not wandered from the beaten It-rack. Few however, are those, not moorland born and bred, who are lit to cross, with safety any considerable waste, such as the Yorkshire wolds, or the more formidable deserts of sav age Dartmoor, when once the log-drift lias set in. Don, who had been an apt pupil of the keepers and herdsmen, from whom he had learned a portion of their open air lore, must have been one of those exceptional persons, since lie held to the beaten path across the moor on his way buck, from some soli tary farm, whither he Jiad been des patched on ;m errand in tho course of clutv, and raiciied the cross-roads with out blunder or mishap.
